Beautiful Rose- Chapter 19: Tale As Old As Time
Jolie opened her eyes and looked at herself. She was human. But how could this be? She was laying on one of the many clouds surrounding her. They were the softest things she had ever felt and she lied back, closing her eyes and feeling comfortable. Then, she took a deep breath and sat up, noticing that she was wearing the green dress she wore for dinner with Jacques and her hair back in the braid. She lied down on her side and looked to ahead to see Jacques sitting up, looking down at himself to notice the yellow jacket and everything he wore to dinner. He looked up and saw the princess. "Jolie?" he asked making sure it was really her.
"Jacques?" she asked with a smile spreading across her face.
Jacques stood up and gracefully walked across the clouds, offering his hand to Jolie who accepted and helped her up stand. She was as light as a feather. "Jacques, are we in heaven?" Jolie asked looking around.
"I think we are," Jacques said looking around and then looked back at Jolie.
Beautiful Rose- Chapter 18: No Happily Ever After
Belle and Adam positioned themselves, ready to back their daughter up. Jolie was waiting to catch Adrienne off guard. Jacques took a few steps up ahead of his mother, grabbing an arrow and aiming it with his bow. Right at Jolie. "Jacques " Jolie said relaxing, "This is not you!"
Jacques pulled back a little more, closing his eye, aiming right toward her heart. "Quiet!" he yelled.
"Jacques! Listen to me!" Jolie said, "Don't do this! You can't! You won't "
Jolie looked at him with big sad eyes. Jacques loosened his muscles a bit, letting the bow and arrow droop a little but still had a serious look on his face. Belle and Adam noticed and hope Jolie had gotten through to him. "Jacques?" Jolie asked hoping the same thing.
"What are you waiting for!?" Adrienne yelled, "Kill her!"
Jacques immediately picked up his bow and arrow again, aiming once more. Jolie jumped back, disappointed she didn't get through to him. "You know what Jolie?" Jacques asked pulling back a bit more.
Beautiful Rose- Chapter 17: The Plot Begins to End
Jacques immediately ran to his own room, stripping himself of his jacket and vest on the way there. Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, Chip and Cogsworth had already ran their own ways to get help.
Jacques slammed the door and quickly changed into his common clothes. He opened his wardrobe and pushed the suits aside to find the bow and pack of arrows Jolie have him for his birthday last year. He slung the arrows over his back and picked up the bow, staring at it. He thought of when he saw his father shooting an arrow into Adam's back in the King's memories. Jacques always noticed he had a knack for archery and shooting but unlike his father, he only used to for shooting targets and stacks of hay. He was never a hunter like Gaston and Jacques thought about what Belle said to him when they were in the cage together. Although she only mentioned it about his pout, he realized it applied to everything Jacques had inherited from his father. He was a great archer and shooter like his father, he looked like
Beautiful Rose- Chapter 16: Happily Ever After?
Jolie and the two women left the library and up the stairs to the bathroom. While Lumiere took Jacques into the room where he stayed when he spent the night at their castle. "Now what should you wear tonight?" Lumiere said shoving Jacques inside the room. Jacques caught his balance and still confused said, "Uh Something nice?"
Lumiere chuckled. "Now you're talking!"
Jolie was stripped of her leftover dress and immediately covered herself with her paws, yelling, "Do you mind!?"
"Oh sorry dear!" Mrs. Potts said pushing Jolie into the big bathtub behind her.
"What is going on!?" Jolie said before a large bucket of water was dumped over her head.
Mrs. Potts took a brush and started scrubbing her fur, as well as Babette. "You're going to have dinner!" Mrs. Potts said happily.
Another bucket was poured on the princess. "You fur is quite difficult to work with," Mrs. Potts said scrubbing more dirt out.
Jolie was yanked and pulled and decided it was no use to argue with th
The Princess and the Shadowman: Prologue
"My dear friends," Facilier said bowing to the head shadow. It had taken him a long time to finally get a meeting with him. "I am honored to be accepted in your presence."
The head shadow looked annoyed. The man was still in debt and yet he had the guts to come and ask for more!? The nerve of some mortals
"I have come here today with a bargain," Facilier said, "A trade of great value."
Although Facilier had failed them greatly last time he made a bargain, the head shadow and his advisors leaned forward, interested in what the man had to say. "Speak your bargain," the head shadow said with a booming voice.
Facilier tried not to cringe at the sound of the voice. He missed the mortal world where they couldn't talk and where they're mortal forms where carved wooden heads. "I've come to make a trade of one soul for another," the witch doctor said.
"How do you intend to get the soul?"
"That's where I need your help my friends. Obviously if you had it, it would already be here with us o
Beautiful Rose- Chapter 15: Saving His Roses
Adam led Maurice inside the castle, still wondering why he was so silent and why he managed to get Belle's horse when it was at Adrienne's.
Maurice continued following Adam with a straight face. No sound at all. "You can stay in this room," Adam said opening an empty room, "Until we can prepare your regular room. We weren't expecting you back to quickly."
Maurice turned his to look down the hallway. "I prefer that room down there," he said.
Adam jumped. That wasn't Maurice's voice. But Adam still played along and responded, "Down there? But the rooms down there are taken."
"Yes I know. And one of them are mine," Maurice responded.
Adam was dumb stricken. "Uh " was all Adam could say.
Maurice turned back to face him and formed into Jacques. Now Adam knew that voice. "Jacques! What are you doing!?" Adam cried.
"I was telling you my room was down there," Jacques said not getting the point.
"No! Why did you look like Maurice!?"
"Oh! That! I wanted to disguise myself so if my mother as
