He has no reason to be jealous, he knows that. He trusts Belle, after all, he trusts her with his life and even more so with his heart and his happiness. He knows he has no reason to begrudge Belle her conversation with the (very young and very handsome) stranger at the bar. But that doesn’t stop him from the feeling the bite of the green-eyed monster as they talk animatedly, and he moves in a little closer.
They’re in Greece, and whilst it’s a lovely country full of history and steeped in culture and it’s home to many beautiful places, it is also mid-summer and just a bit too hot for Rumpel to be comfortable, used as he is to the far more temperate climates of Maine and the Enchanted Forest, and his patience wears thin when he is hot and bothered like this.
