Peter Pan-Once Upon A Time
It had been a few months since the spell was lifted by Emma Swan. She set our town free from the Evil Queens curse. Everybody began remembering who they used to be. Snow White, The Mad Hatter, even the blue fairy remembered who they were. everybody remembered the lives in the enchanted forest, everybody, except me.I didn’t remember anything. Well, I remembered a few bits, a forest, a camp fire, music played on a set of pan pipes. Mostly though I just remembered a boy. My age, maybe older, he was tall and skinny. He always had a cocky look on his face, a smirk on his lips, one of his eye brows raised. I remembered his face but I couldn’t remember his name, and I didn’t know why.
It’s wasn’t all bad, not remembering. My mum, well adoptive mum that is, Mary Margret (Well snow white) had been so supportive, even with all the catching up with her real daughter, Emma. She was an amazing mom and Emma was an amazing Sister. I didn’t NEED to know who I was in the past, I just wanted to know.
A few days ago, Henry, Emma’s boy, was taken and my mom, David, Emma and Regina who I nicknamed ‘EQ’, had decided they were going to find him and bring him home, with help of a pirate. I however was forced to go. I mean sure, don’t get me wrong, I love Henry, even before the curse was lifted, I loved him like a brother. I was his babysitter and tutor. He means a lot to me, but ermm, I did’t think, I’d be much help in the rescue mission like this. I’m not really good with stuff like being a hero. My mum and sister however thought other wise, so here I stand in the middle of a forest, lost in Neverland.
I had gotten lost because I thought I heard crying so I went to look, so I went to look and when I turned back to find the group they were gone. I stumbled around the forest looking for them.
I tripped and stumbled around. I don’t really know why, but something felt familier. I felt as through I had been here before. Something about the trees, the sounds the feel of the place felt as though I had been there before. For a moment, I forgot about finding my mom and sister. I just walked, trying to figure out why I knew this place, why it felt so familiar. I pushed my way through bushes and branches trying to find my family when pushed threw a bunch of think over grown branches and all of a sudden I couldn’t feel the ground under my feet anymore, I looked down and I could see the ground, traveling towards me at a quick pace. I was falling.
I fell, fast and I knew it was over, I held my arms out, over my face, I’m not sure why, I guess I thought, if I protected my face from damage my mom would know it’s me. If see ever found me that is. Holding my arms over my face, I closed my eyes, and braced my self for the impact with the ground but it never came.
My eyes opened slightly and I moved my arms, looking at the ground, it was there, right in front of me, my head floating just above it. I looked around confused. I was floating, I laughed a little, relieved I wasn’t dead. I was alive. I looked up, over to the cliff I had fallen down and some how I willed myself to slowly raise up towards the cliff. “I…I’m flying.” I whispered to myself. “I…I’m flying.” I shouted laughing. I started to fly up faster and faster the smiling never leaving my face. I flew a little bit further on to the cliff so I didn’t fall again. I hovered a little over the ground before I felt my feet drop to the ground. Then it all came flooding back. I remembered Everything.
I remember Neverland, I remember the lost boys, I remember who I was but most importantly, I remember Peter Pan.
I looked around and laughed at myself, I could still hear the crying, and that really bothered me, I remembered who I am, I remembered that if I could here the crying, it meant I was lost, but why was I lost, I knew exactly where I was.
Ignoring the feeling of confusion I figured it was because I need to find my mum. I willed myself to lift off into the air and flew over the trees trying to find my family when I spotted something familiar.
A camp. It was big, huts scattered around in the middle sat a large camp fire, surrounded by boys, all dancing and shouting, having fun. Not wanting to spoil their fun I flew a little lower and landed by a tree and watched, smiling at the familiar sight.
“Are you sure it’s her?” I heard a voice ask, I slightly looked around the tree to see Felix, my old friend, talking to him, to Peter. Peter was still as handsome and young as ever. He was sat there, on a tree stump, playing with his pan pipes, only stopping to ask questions to Felix.
“I’m sure, I’d know her voice anywhere Peter. It was Y/N” Felix answered. I knew instantly who there were talking about before he even said my name, my whole life here was spent with the lost boys, I was the first and only lost girl.
“We need to find her, I need her back here with me.” Peter whispered, regret and sadness clear in his voice. I decided then It was time to come out of the shadow, I wanted to see him again. Face to face.
“No need Peter, I’m right here.” I called as I stepped out from behind the tree. I looked around and noticed all of the eyes on me, but the only person to speak or eve move was Peter.
“Y/N, you’re back.” He laughed happily as he ran over to me and pulled me into a hug. The second I felt his arms wrap around my waist as he pulled me close, the sound of crying stopped. I wasn’t lost anymore, now that I was back in Peter’s arms.
“Yeah I am.” I mumbled into his chest. “I’m home.” I whispered as I looked up into his eyes. I remember everything from before the curse, how I got to Neverland, how I fell for Peter and how I was taken from Neverland and ended up in the enchanted forest.
“Where were you?” He asked, sitting me down on a tree stump, him sitting on the floor next to me. He waved his hand, signaling everyone to carry on with what they where doing. I smiled at the sight of all the lost boys being happy and free.
“It’s a long story.” I laughed quietly but I went serious again. “Peter, where’s Henry? I know you have him.” I asked grabbing his hand and pulling it to my cheek which he gently stroked and smiles a me.
“Y/N, please don’t be mad.” He whispered shamefully. “I only took him because we needed to get the magic back.” He explained, pulling me up and leading me into the woods. “After you were taken, everything changed. Magic stopped working. A few months ago how ever something changed, the shadow came back and I figured if I sent him to find the right child, he would ring back magic and I could get you back.” He finished, just as we stopped at the cages.
“Henry?” I called, walking towards the cages thathad people in.
“Auntie Y/N” I heard him call ack. ran over to the cell and let him out, he immedietly ran into my arms.
“You’re here, is my mom here?” He asked tears welling mp in his eyes. I nodded and turned to Peter.
“I’m gonna take him back to his family. "I told Peter, grabbing Henry’s hand. Before I could leave Peter grabbed my arm. Henry, being scared and not knowing who I was tried to fight Peter off but I stopped him.
"Henry, no stop.” I shouted, pulling him back, “Peter won’t hurt me.” I reassured him. I turned to Peter and smiled, “I’ll come back, I promise.” Peter nodded and lent in, kissing my cheek before letting go and walking away.
“Okay, Henry, hold on tight.” I told him as I hugged him close and smiled before lifting off into the air.
“Wow” I heard Henry whisper as we flew over the trees.
We flew around for a while until I saw Emma and Regina fighting…again. I sighed and turned to Henry before flying down and landing a little away from the group. As soon as my feet hit the floor Henry ran towards Emma so I followed.
As soon as we broke through the trees the arguing stopped and both Henry and I became trapped in a large group hug. “Henry, Y/N, you’re back.” Emma called, I nodded a pulled away. I looked over at my family and it hit me, I had a choice. I was either going to stay here with Peter and the Lost boys or go back to Storybrook, with my family. Being here in Neverland, even though I have only been here for a short time, I feel at home, but I have spent god knows how long with my mum, my sister and Henry. My family.
“Y/N what’s wrong?” My mom asked. I smiled and shrugged, as I was about to speak a familiar voice interupted.
“YOU!” I turned around and came face to face with Hook. “Where is he?” he asked. Before I could say anything Henry spoke up again.
“You’re her, aren’t you? You’re the one he talks about.” He asked, leaving everyone else confused. “The lost girl.”
“Yeah, I’m her.” I answered sitting down o a rock. I sighed and looked up at everyone else. “I remember…who I am, before the Curse EQ cast.” I told them, “I was taken a long time ago I don’t know who by but I managed to get away from them somehow and I ended up here. I met Peter and the lost boys and I was happy until a few of the lost boys thought Peter’s love for me was a weakness and they wanted to overthrow him, so they kidnapped me as sent me away, that’s how I ended up on the enchanted forest, and how I ended up on Storybrook.
"I got here and I fell off of the cliff, I flew and I remembered. I’m home, I’m where I should be but I don’t want to lose you mum. and Emma I only just got you. I don’t know what to do.” I cried, my mum walked over and hugged me tight.
“You do what you have to do, I love you, you know that. But I can tell you want to be here. Home is where your heart is and you’re heart has never really been in Storybrook, you know that.” My mom reassured me holding me close.
“Y/N, I know I just got you as a sister u I agree with Mary Margret, before I lifted the curse, you always told me about wanting to leave o find adventure, you love right, who ever this Peter Pan is?” Emma asked to which I nodded. “Then you should stay here, the biggest adventure anybody can find is love.” She smiled, hugging me I nodded and smiled pulling away.
I turned to look around the clearing when I saw a figure duck behind a bush, I smiled and shook my head,“Peter, I know you’re watching, get them home please.” I called, before I had even finished my sentence Peter was by my side.
“Ok,” was all he said. I smiled and walked over to my family. “Bye EQ.” I said giving her a quick hug before moving on over to David.
“Hey, thank you for being a great dad over the past few months .” I whispered in his ear.
“Henry, I love you a lot, don’t forget me OK?” I said hugging him tight.
“Emma, I love you too, even if you didn’t have them your whole life , they still love you.” I reminded Emma, hugging her tight too.
“Mum, thank you for being there for me. I am so greatful for you.” told her, “I love you” I whispered.
“I love you too Y/N. come and visit, OK.” She cried. I nodded and pulled away.
After our goodbyes my family left and I sighed. I love my family but my mum was right, I never felt like I belonged in Storybrook, I always felt like an outsider because I never got me memories back when everyone else did. I belong in Neverland, with Peter and the lost boys, My lost boys.
The feeling of someones arms wrapping around my waist pulled me from my thoughts.
“I am so glad you are home, with me.” Peter whispered turning me to face him. I smiled and wrapped my arms around his neck. “Me too.” I replied pulling him in for a long over due kiss.
“So very glad to be home.” I sighed happy looked into his eyes.
