For Rent - Part 11
Mr. Gold/Belle, G
Summary: A nice little epilogue to wrap things up.
Notes: THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! Loads of thanks to everyone who support this little fic that could, from a random one-shot prompt, to its stupidly long hiatus, all the way to 11 chapters of dorks in love, so many of you stuck with it. I still can’t believe this is one of my most popular fics. A special thank you to the wonderful @leni-ba who gave me the initial prompt that started the whole thing, and to @the1ultimatefan for your incredible comments that kept spurring me on.
The ground was squishy under Gold’s shoes, soaked with the heavy spring rains that had fallen for the last two nights. He looked up at the little house and sighed.
“You’re sure this is what you want?” he asked, casting a glance over his shoulder to Belle.
She gave him a sympathetic look. “Yes, I’m sure,” she said softly. “We talked about this, and it’s for the best. For both of us.”
