" … I love you Lady Tulip. "

" It’s just that…. you shouldn’t have to worry about me. You already have… what seven kids now? " Rain hesitated a moment, considering actually counting them out on her fingers before she decided it wasn’t important, " You should worry about them. Not the weird little green girl you met. " Clearing her throat awkwardly, Rain tried to smile up at Cherise, but it was awkward and forced, not quite reaching her eyes as it should.

" You could ask for a lot. A better girl to call your daughter. Not someone who can’t stay in one place and doesn’t know how to love anyone. "

Cherise had to count for a moment. Just how many children did she have? She always started with the triplets. It was easiest to start with the three together. Roan, Robin, and Benjamin. Then there was Usagi and Prince. That made five. Then her stepdaughter, the first child of the house, that made six. The soon to be born child made for seven. And then there was Rain.

"I have eight children. You forgot the little one who isn’t here yet." Cherise smiled. "But I’m happy you remembered yourself." She ruffled her hair and let out a happy sigh. "All of my children are important. They are all wonderful. They are different and have their strong points and weak points. Like you have this irritating thing you do, insisting you aren’t important or special. If you weren’t, why would I try keeping you here or making you food? I only cook for those I love. Ask Marco and Pinocchio how often I used to help cook for them when I was no bigger than a thumb."

She cackled softly and fluttered her eyelashes dangerously, then laughed again. “There is no better Rain out there, my beloved Pansy. You are the one and only who looks like you who bears your name. I am afraid I cannot replace you… I don’t mind that you roam. That is your heart. But you always come back to me. So long as you are happy… And I disagree. I know you love me. I know that deep down in my soul. Not just my heart… Because if you didn’t, you wouldn’t come back. And you certainly wouldn’t be this concerned about me wasting my feelings!”

"I wasn’t sure what you would say to me. All I wanted to hear was how your love came to be. It’s that moment when suddenly you were empty and now you feel whole. For me it took a matter of minutes to love this one person. She was, she has so much fire and I have none of that. I’m a passive man. And I say man with a grain of salt, I don’t know the first thing about being a man. All I know is that  my parents desire me to cleanse something that I had no part in. I am to marry a daughter of a runaway princess and make her my wife. I don’t know if I will love her or just care about her as a sister, but I know if I decline they will give her away to the worst of our lot. I want her to be safe but I want to be happy. I’m at a crossroads I suppose, and I wanted to listen to help me make up my mind." he sighed, "So I apologize for this rather selfish endevour."

"But what would you do, if you loved someone but were to marry another?"

He certainly had an ordeal before him. He loved and desired one, but was destined to marry another. To have a heart but it was already promised to someone. Cherise raised her eyebrows and smiled nervously. The response wouldn’t be one he’d like to hear. “If I loved someone and was to marry another? Well… Poison. Poison is what I would choose. Because I assume running away with my heart is not an option… And I could not break the heart of the intended because it isn’t their fault, but something terrible will happen to them. So to save them, I would simply find a way to seal their fate…and take poison. Because they could never be happy with a miserable soul. And I could never be happy with my heart belonging to another. And my love…I would give them my love and blessing to love again.”

Cherise sighed. “I’ve thought it through, you see? I often thought about drinking poison when I was with Cornelius. There were days when I wanted to fall down dead. I was frightened. My days were dark… And he did not have my heart. Instead I ran away. Someone gave me the hope and strength to run away. She told me where I could find shelter… I didn’t have to take poison… But you see… That was a different time. A different circumstance. I was caught in a dangerous game and I thought my will was broken. I can only speak what I know… I would take poison… Do not pick my choice.”

"I don’t know as much as I should, I would think it sort of rude to know too much about someone I’ve never met before. But I am familiar with your name, dear." She gave the woman a small grin, "Ah, no one’s called you a darling? Oh, dear. Pleasantries must be amended."

She let out a small chuckle, “My name here was Muriel, it’s a pleasure to meet you.”

She hadn’t heard the name Muriel since leaving the nuns. Names that had such an older charm to them weren’t completely unknown to Storybrooke, but there were just a select few that were a bit more rare. Even Cherise’s name was a different sort, while her name she had selected while wearing her habit was an older one as well.

"It’s a lovely name. Well, it bears repeating, Cherise Hopper. I wasn’t aware there weren’t many pregnant women in town… A friend of mine just had a little baby boy. And I had the triplets a year ago before Christmas. My house is filled with happy toddlers. Storybrooke is growing…expanding. This is…our little happy tidings from the curse." Cherise smiled. It wasn’t much of a curse anymore now that people had bridged over the empty places in their lives. People still suffered badly, but the suffering could be reduced in places and life could begin anew.

"Can I ask how you heard about my family? I…I have a reason to be worried these days. I’m suspicious. That’s all. I’m sorry."

ooc: Alright I have been trying to downplay how bad I’ve been. I said I was in bad shape but I guess I probably should be a little more honest.

My pain is bad enough that my pain medication isn’t working. I took vicodin and kinda “enhanced” it with some hot green tea for tonight. Do not do this. You can screw up the potency of your meds with certain kinds of tea. As of right now I am flying high, but I’m still in agony.

May 2nd is my next doctor’s appointment and I’ll have to admit that the pain has started to travel into my shoulder blade. I’m doing bad. I’m doing very bad. I am probably gonna fall behind on some stuff…so I need you to be patient with me. I am gonna fall asleep a lot because I’ll be wasting all of my energy and focus during the day.

I’m sorry. You have no idea how upset that makes me. I live for rp and I’m enjoying the storyline right now. I’m being a total asshole by not posting. I’m sorry. I know everyone understands because health comes first, but I still feel bad because I want to be here…and not curled up in bed. I want to be here; happy and healthy… Because laying in bed and crying until I fall asleep is the worst alternative to a fun night rping.

I’m trying to get my shit together. I’m sorry.

"You must be either Mrs. Hopper or Mrs. Charming, limited amount of pregnant women in the town. Aren’t you a darling."


Cherise smiled and bowed her head. “No one’s ever called me a darling before. That’s very kind of you to do that… To answer your question, I’m Mrs. Hopper. My name is Cherise.”

If it was known just how many pregnant women in total the town had, then it certainly wasn’t news that the Hoppers had a large family with small children, so that had to be town gossip as well. Cherise curtsied as best as she could with her swollen stomach. “Suppose you know all about my little ones and husband then? Since you know about me already?

ooc: I’m in a great deal of pain right now and I’m barely able to stay focused. I’m sorry. I’m gonna try to start these two replies, then relax. I’ll be calling the doctor tomorrow or Tuesday.

Sorry I wasn’t on today. Easter wasn’t too great here and I ended up spending the day snuggled with my heating pad.

toturngreenagain:

" … I love you Lady Tulip. "

" Still… You shouldn’t have to worry about me. I’m…. You have your own children to worry about. Ones who will cause you less pain than I will, " Too much guilt in her chest. It had built up for years and years, guilt at even existing and while she often never showed it, it still was bearing hard on her chest. On her soul.

"… I’m sorry. But I have to leave once and a while Lady Tulip. I can’t… I can’t stay here. It would kill me. My soul isn’t made to stay in one place for to long. I’m sorry. "

Cherise patted and rubbed Rain’s back and let out a sigh. “Rain, I worry about everyone important to me… You are one of my children and therefore, I will worry. Until the end of my days. Children are meant to pain their parents. They’ll break their hearts but that’s okay. Because every time I see them smile? Or I see you smile when you are with me? That is worth every bit.” She gently grasped Rain’s shoulder and smiled gently.

"You are a free bird and you are never to be sorry for that. It makes you happy. Knowing you’re happy? That makes me happy. So long as you are happy, safe, and healthy? I could not ask for more."

"There is nothing I love more than seeing you happy."

toturngreenagain:

" … I love you Lady Tulip. "

Rain tensed at the first second of the embrace, unused to such affection. Even though she had know Cherise for years, there were still times such as these when she was shocked and surprised at just how loving the woman could be. It was so unlike all of the years of apathy she had learned to accept and when she had finally gotten it from those who had ignored her for years, Rain had revolted. Still, after a second, Rain embraced the hug, returning it.

" … That’s just the way the world is. I’ve learned to accept it. You don’t have to worry about me Lady Tulip. I am more than fine, " After all, Rain had been doing this sort of thing for years. She was a survivor, in the most literal sense of the word. Both mentally and physically.

She would never stop worrying. Mothers never stopped worrying. Though she did not adopt Rain and she wasn’t Rain’s biological mother, she still felt responsible for her well-being. When Rain wasn’t happy, it felt as if the world was ending. The idea of Rain being hungry or cold was something that haunted her nightmares every night. She let out a shaky sigh and weary noise. To calm herself, she kissed Rain’s head. “I can stop worrying when I’m dead. Then I can watch you everywhere that you are and make sure you’ll be alright. Until then, I’ll be afraid like a mother always is. Afraid for her dearest little ones. Even if you are tall…you’re still a child to me.”

Cherise wasn’t willing to let go. Not now. Now that Rain was here, she didn’t want to leave her alone. “You shouldn’t have to accept it. You should get more and not have to demand anything. Oz is too cruel to you… I wish you would stay in Storybrooke. But you’d never like it here. You’re too free of a spirit and that would make you miserable to stay. I want you to be happy. I need you to be happy.”

"There is nothing I love more than seeing you happy."

" … I love you Lady Tulip. "

The touch of Cherise’s hands brought the tears to fruition. Spilling from her eyes, Rain couldn’t hold back the emotions any longer. The pain that was breaking her heart -it felt as if her whole body was about to give up and die right then- cursed at her, yelling at her to do better. She had caused so much pain in her life, Rain had thought. So much and now there was good in front of her.

" … I don’t think anyone other than you has ever called me that. Good. " It seemed to lofty of a word even for the daughter of wind. Good was the name for those with purer souls. Rain figured. Staring up at Cherise, Rain was sure. Cherise was good. Rain on the other hand was pain, if nothing else. Just pain and misery and wickedness.

image

Seeing Rain tearful and sad only caused sadness for Cherise. She wanted to hide her away from the evil of the world. Evil was convincing a promising young girl that she would never amount to anything more than her grandmother’s shadow. Evil was being thankless for the good deeds that were done at the risk of a young life, then ostracizing that person and telling them they are an outsider. Cherise felt her hands slowly fall away, then quickly move to wrap around Rain and hold her close in a protective embrace.

"You need to hear it more. They’re fools for not seeing it. I didn’t know you did such a wonderful thing. Rain, I haven’t even done close to what you’ve done. You’re even greater than I am. You saved people… You used your magic to try to heal me. You are so young… And you’ve gone through so much. You’ve touched my life and…I am certain if you ever left, I’d be a very miserable wretch." Cherise felt her own tears burning. Why? it wasn’t fair for Rain to suffer. She deserved more. She needed more. Blinking, a few escaped and trickled down her cheeks. She wept for Rain.

"I love you. You deserve more. It’s your nature to wander, but you know if you ever want to stay… I’ll be here. Archie and I love you very much… And he was green too! Once. I do love green… You are so beautiful…And oh so special to me. And I know you are good. You’re good to me. That’s all I care about."

he couldn’t help the grin on his face. Fred couldn’t keep from smiling and laughing. He was happy that she put the two together. “I know about River, mom named her River. I remember. Dad didn’t like it so much, he wanted to give her another name but yeah,” He smiled, “Melody is a gem, she’s just like her father, The sea fairing King. They both have that tanned skin tone. And Ariel’s round face.” He chuckled, “Well get use to it, because You are a grandma. Dad told me a lot about you. he loves you so much. I would tell you if we met but being here and going through that thing I can’t. Things are being taken away from me, had a memory lapse like my mother, I guess.”

"Me, baby Freddie- it’s all a bit weird. I still don’t know the tenses here. It’s present tense for you and past for me, right? I don’t know how to speak, how does one talk in these sorts of tenses?"

He was alarmed for a split second. “Ah!” he laughed, not being able to help it. “I’m sorry, but I want a-I don’t know. I wasn’t sure if Mads came to see you already. So I didn’t know how much you knew.” He tried to hide how content he was, “Still the same. Still the same fire.” He opened his arms and bent down a little to hold his grandmother. “I’m so happy I found you.”

Cherise rubbed and patted Fred’s back, then gave him a gentle squeeze. It was as much of a hug that she could allow with her stomach being in the way. “She did. She told me. I was shocked but you know, I’ve been through so much that the shock didn’t last for long.” Being in a perfect place, she placed a kiss on Fred’s forehead and took her hand to muss his hair. “It’s good to know you grow up to be such a well-behaved man…I’m hinting that you need to keep that up or I will throttle you.”

She patted his shoulder and smirked. “Your mother was going to name you something very much connected to the ocean, too. Your father picked Frederick. I loved all the names both your mother and father had selected for you. Not just because it’s good diplomacy, but because they honestly loved you so much that they thought that long on your name.”

With a wry grin, Cherise pulled away. “So you’re..forgetting some things. That’s okay. Just focus on what you can. If you need questions answered, just come find me… Or Archie. I haven’t really explained this to him, since we have our own problems right now. Just break the news very gently. But yes…River told me about things. It is surprising just how much her life mirrors mine. Down to the details, it is nearly frightening.”

ooc: I have to sleeeeeeep. I gotta get up early tomorrow. :( Cause work. I have iamnotafrankenstein ‘s reply in my drafts.

I’ll do that after work if I’m not totally drained and need a nap. I did literally pass out on the couch when I got home. “I’m not tired.” Two minutes later…

"Yeah you uh. You need to go upstairs."

"Why?"

"You don’t realize you just checked out there right after we talked?"

"Oh my god."
