Once Upon a Time 3x10 - Ariel reunites with Eric
((OOC: Oh, look! There go my feels off a cliff! Bye feels!))
kiss the girl;
”Oh,” he breathed out dejectedly. The joyous twinkle in his eyes vanished as the mute maiden solemnly shook her head no. His heart beat slowed from it’s intense pace. Finally realizing how incredibly close he stood in front of her, he indiscreetly stepped back.The wide smile that once graced his lips now etched in a deep frown.
The young, mute maiden was not the cause of his dispirited feeling. It wasn’t her fault that she had no voice. She was probably born without a voice or was involved in a terrible accident that cost her her voice. Yet, the circumstance does not shield away the fact that she isn’t the mystery maiden. As gorgeous and tender-hearted this mute maiden appeared to be, it just wan’t her. “Then you couldn’t be who I thought.” he confessed out loud, his down cast eyes glancing back up at her and immediately fell back down.
The sea breeze swept against his cool skin, sending shivers down his spine. His heart felt so fluttered, his mind in a raging whirl. Now, all of the butterflies in his stomach ceased. The magenta tint in his cheeks faded away. All that hope simmered away as quickly as it came. Eric couldn’t bear looking back at the maiden, knowing that she would adorn the same hopeless expression on her delicate face.
Seeing Eric’s disappointed and dejected reaction, Ariel knew that her previous hopes were not reality. Eric did care that she didn’t have a voice. And judging by the way he didn’t even look at her, Ariel had a sinking feeling that he had given up on her completely.
When he turned away from her, Ariel sighed loudly, blowing her bangs out of her face in annoyance. Her emotions were mixed with anger towards Ursula, disappointment in the fact that Eric had given up to her, and despair in what her next move should be. After a brief moment, an idea popped into her head, and with an exuberant grin, she brushed her bangs out of her face and turned towards Eric, waving to get his attention.
Okay, okay… Please listen. As Eric turned to look at her, Ariel began to frantically and excitedly make hand gestures. She made motions towards her throat, waving her hand from her throat out of her mouth. I can sing.. I sang to you… Eric began guessing, but everything he said was wrong. No, I’m not hurt.. I don’t need help. She made a motion with her arm, trying to tell him that she was swimming. I was a mermaid…
Her frantic movements set her new body off-balance, and uncontrollably, Ariel fell off the boulder, a silent gasp escaping her lips.
Slowly glancing upward, he caught sight of her frantically motioning and gesturing to him. Eric furrowed his eyebrows, a concerned expression clouding his face. “W-What is it?” he questioned her hastefully, eyeing her up and down. She indicated her throat and proceeded to lift it higher. His brain racked on what this mute girl could possibly mean.
“Y-You’re hurt?” the sailor prince guessed again hesitantly. She wildly flailed her arms while shaking her head. Eric pinched the bridge of his nose, closing his eyes. Judging from the way she desperately signed to him, he could see that his guesses were far off from the answer. “No, no.” he shook his head, feeling slightly dim- witted. He was no pro at charades, but maybe he was over thinking what she was attempting to communicate. What could she mean when she thrashed her hand up and down, like a wave?
He stepped closer to the boulder, clasping on the edge. His eyes never faltered away from her antsy expression. He wanted to get this right. Obviously, this maiden was trying to tell him something. Something of dire importance. “You need help?” he inquired in a louder tone,his irises widening at the thought.
All in an instant, Eric saw her lean too forward out. In a panic, she flapped her arms, as if trying to retain her balance. But Eric knew all to well that she began to fall. “Whoa! Whoa!” Eric shouted, reeling back at the sight of her fastly approaching him. Using his speedy reflexes, he caught her before she could hit the sand. He felt her wriggle in his arms, plummeting downwards as she continuously lost her balance on the ground.
“Careful,” Eric advised soothingly, lifting her to a standing position. “careful. Easy.” his consoling words eased the maiden’s panic attack. He could feel her tense muscles relax, but her solid grip on his broad shoulder never wavered. Once positioned at eye level, Eric found himself enraptured in her glistening eyes. HE could no find the strength to divert his eyes away. He was snagged in some sort of enchantment just by the mere gleam in her eyes. There looked so kind; so sincere. Yet the harder he stared, the more he thought that there was more she was trying to tell him. She peered right back at him, a longing expression casting over he porcelain face. Her slender fingers snaked through his ebony locks on the back of his neck. Tingles surged all over his body, as he tightened the hold on her waist.
”Gee,” he breathed out finally, knitting his eyebrows together. “you must have really been through something.” he commented out loud, maintaining their deep eye contact. What she has been through, he didn’t know and he wasn’t quite sure of he wanted to know. A crestfallen, pleading look covered her face. The frown etched on her lips alone, shot daggers in his heart. “Don’t worry!” Eric said optimistically, a genuine smile gracing his lips. “I’ll help you.” He side stepped around with the red-haired women still in tow. The two began to walk, slowly but surely. “C’mon.” Eric prodded gently, guiding her in the castle’s direction. “You’ll be okay.”

The former South African president died today at age 95. Remember him through his uplifting and revolutionary words.
They were my two favorites I saw during True Love Week so they needed a photoset. Haha. I had so much fun talking to them and seeing them together again!
