with-the-black-banners-raised asked:

Also now that you've done a Regina/Cora/Rumple/dark!Emma/etc. and ripped out some hearts and crushed them, the fanworld could do with some fic in which Cruella tells Isaac she loves him, right?

+ Prompt (given on ff.net): We haven’t seen Cruella saying I love you to Isaac yet and I would love to see that. :)

Wish to be forgiven for Loving the Devil latest chapter;)

More than enough [Heller-De Vil family]

“Don’t tell me to calm down, darling! I have every reason to be pissed off!”

Isaac just glared at his wife for some moments, unavoidably shaking his head in disagreement. It was common for her to get angry and for them to argue, but this time the reason behind all that drama was a good thing: Lily and August had in fact just asked them to be godmother and godfather of their second son. It was a honor – so Isaac had kept telling her – but instead Cruella was acting like someone had been killed. Well, maybe in that case she would have been happy.

“I still don’t see where is your problem, Cru…” he tried to say in the end.

Cruella stopped pacing back and forth the room and glared at him. “Everything is the problem. Why in Hell did they ask me to do that? I mean, I am zero mother material!”

Isaac raised an eyebrow confused and couldn’t help but chuckle slightly. “But you have two children and you are a wonderful mother to them…” he objected, pointing out the obvious care she had for Fitzgerald and Anita.

“Exactly!” she interrupted quickly, as a victorious smile appeared on her lips. “Don’t you see? I already have a lot of responsibilities and my tiny dark heart is already full. In time I learnt to love three people more than anything and really, there’s no room for anyone else in any sense…”

“I know, but…” his understanding reply abruptly stopped and he suddenly widened his eyes. “Oh, wait! Have you just said three people?”

“Yeah, you and the kids…” she confirmed, as if the most obvious thing in the world.

It was not for him, though; actually for a moment he thought that he had just entered an alternative universe or maybe was having a hallucination. Their oldest son was twelve years old and they had been together for almost fourteen years, but she had never told him those three words, not even once. He did many times, but to his “I love you” he never got back an “I love you too” – at most a bitter smile or a sort of an awkward “thank you”.

Me? Have you just implied that you love me?” he asked again, more specifically, when he managed to recover himself - at least enough to speak.

Cruella widened her eyes for a moment as well, but then just shrugged. She didn’t see the situation that way; the actual words were overestimated in her opinion and even quite meaningless after all. “I want you”, “I care for you”, “I need you”: they all meant the same thing – except that that same thing meant a positive emotional thing, anyway. Because her little family – including Isaac, of course - was literally the whole world for her now, but actually she had never made it a mistery.

“I accepted to marry you, I started a family with you and I let you change me: of course I love you, darling!” she exclaimed, flashing a sincere and yet bitter smile. However, she looked soon down and started to walk away. “That’s completely irrelevant, anyway…”

But Isaac was quick to gently but firmly grab her wrist, keeping her in place. “Irrelevant?” he echoed her in the meanwhile. “You love me, Cruella. How can this be irrelevant?”

She sighed softly and instictively looked down again to avoid eye contact. She didn’t want to see his hope for that little accidental revelation of hers, because deep down she knew that he deserved more: he deserved real love, constant displays of affection and an “I love you too” everyday. He deserved more, more than she could have ever given to him. Instead there she was, unable to love for almost all her life and still unsure about how to do that – still learning, still trying, still failing.

“Because it will never be enough and you know what, it is your fault!” she snapped, preferring anyway anger toward him than pity toward herself. “You love me since… for ever! And you keep loving me everyday even with all my so many flaws. I swear, each time you say you love me it kills me, because I know that what I feel for you will never be enough compared to your love. So, my “I love you” will always be irrelevant…”

She probably wasn’t aware of that, but her voice had slowly gone softer and her eyes were almost glimmered of unexpressed tears. It all seemed a desperate confession more than an attempt to argue. Therefore, Isaac just let go of her wrist and instead softly took her face into both his hands, forcing her to look at him in the eyes. His ones were unavoidably full of tears as well.

“Oh, my love, it is more than enough actually. All I ever wanted in my life was this moment and I… I never thought you would have really said those words…” he replied with a clearly happy smile, before placing a light kiss on her lips.

As soon as they parted, Cruella forced herself to roll her eyes as a way to regain her usual attitude and maybe hide how much that reply had affected her. However, a smirk still appeared on her face.“Always the sentimental, darling, aren’t you?”

Isaac chuckled at the tease, but didn’t convert himself to irony. “I love you too” he whispered in fact, with a serious tone.

Cruella sighed dramatically, pretending to be annoyed, but after some instants she was the one to start a second more passionate kiss. Despite the appearance, for once his I love you didn’t make her feel uncomfortable at all.

Did you know that playing Pool can help your kids develop into the best they can be in life?

We are not talking about becoming world champion players. It all has to do with teaching your kids two of the greatest things in life without them even knowing it.

These two ‘things’ are concentration and problem solving.

With computer based entertainment being exposed to our next generation at an increasing level, the child development benefits of play activity, such as the cue sport games, are taking on greater importance.

According to the Australian parenting website www.raisingchildren.net.au, computer use is changing the physical shapes of our brains which might be a particular worry for children’s brains, which are still developing. For example, constant stimulation from digital devices might create attention problems for children, who already find it challenging to set priorities and resist impulses.

But it’s not just all about computer games! In 2009 the Australian Bureau of Statistics reported that over 40% of children aged 5-14 watched an average of 20+ hours of Television per fortnight and spent less than two hours doing informal physical activity such as riding a bike.

However it’s important to note that these viewing statistics have risen in line with the increasing cost of living and both parents working which means less energy for play-time.

So this is where a Pool Tables comes into play in helping with children’s development and bringing family and friends together.

Playing pool does require a healthy dose of concentration to focus on not only hitting the white ball but pushing the object ball to where you want it to go.

Just where you want the ball to go requires problem-solving. This is a great scenario for parent(s) and child to interact and come up with a solution. While the shot is not always going to come off, plenty of encouragement does wonders for your child’s confidence.

The interaction you can have with your children when problem-solving on a Pool Table goes an incredibly long way to strengthening the family bond.

Is your cue straight, how hard are you going to hit the ball, where do you need to hit the object ball for it to go in a certain direction, are just some of the many child development equations you will share as a family.

These acquired skills of concentration and problem-solving around the Pool Table will carry across to situations in your children’s future professional and personal lives. That’s the beauty of playing Pool.

In time you might even find your children will find greater solitude in going to the Pool Table than sitting in front of a computer screen.

And as your children reach their late teens, understand that a Pool Table does build their relationships with their mates.

It’s why Billiard Shop’s slogan is ‘Bringing family and friends together’ because it’s exactly what it does.

Develop concentration and problem-solving with a family Pool Table.
