Jillian regretted opening the door when she saw River there. She started slowly shaking her head when she spoke. “I haven’t seen you in almost five years ” she said, her voice sad and bitter. She gripped the door handle tighter as a small cat wound it way around her legs…
Jillian crossed her arms “no” she said firmly. “I’m tired of you only showing up when you want me, but when I need you it’s not important enough. You needed to leave? How do you think I felt wondering every day if you were dead or alive?” She asked. “You may be ok with The Doctor doin it to you but not ok with either of you doing it to me, yet here I am being left all the time. You promised you wouldn’t do this again!”
I need to learn people have lives and other RP partners, I need to not be so clingy. *forces myself to sit and leave people alone*
"Jillian… I…" Belle started to talk but stopped. She had no idea what to say. It’s been so long since she had last seen her sister. After that deal… She had no idea of what happened with her sister after she left with Rumpelstiltskin. Belle had no idea of what to do.
"He’s not here… Rumpels." Belle explained. "He’s getting the rent, or something…" Belle had no idea why she was explaining that. But she knew no one in town had the courage to enter his shop and calling him ‘Gold’. No one was close enough for that. And so, she assumed Jillian was friends with him. She could see why. He could be nice when he wanted to. Belle looked at Jillian. And for a few seconds she stayed in silence.
"I missed you." Belle said, finally. She walked to her sister and hugged her. If felt awkward at first, but she just couldn’t let her go. It’s been so long. Belle could feel her heart racing and her eyes started to tear up.
She nodded a bit shakily “Yeah um…he usually does it this time every Wednesday but I was hoping I could catch him on the way out” she said, stuttering a bit. How was this real? How was she alive?
When she heard her sister speak again and suddenly felt the hug she dropped the keys that had been in her hand and her body stiffened. She hadn’t felt her sister’s embrace in almost forty years. Her hands were shaking as she wrapped her arms desperately around her sister.
"You’re alive" she breathed and clung tightly to her.
