“Come on,” she mutters, tugging on the chain around her wrist. Maybe if she ---

She freezes, hand on the chain and she looks at the door again. That was a howl. A wolf's howl.

She tugs on the chain again, willing it to break. If her father was any indication of what people thought …

She huffs as the chain won't break, no matter what she does.


Her head rises. “Here!”

Granny rounds the shelves hiding her from view. “There you are,” she says as she surveys the scene before her. “Do you know where the key is?”

“On t--- what are those for?”

Granny smiles, holding the boltcutters up. “This?” She lowers them to the table and looks at the chained woman. “My key if I don't find where that dratted girl put the key to your chains.”

Belle chuckles. “Try under those books.”

Granny nods, and looks.

She's barely through the door when Ruby pounces on her. “Thank the moon you're okay.”

“No thanks to you,” Belle chuckles. Ruby frowns then the laughter registers; unbeknownst to her, she sighs. “Are you all right?”

Ruby nods with a grin and Belle sighs, in relief.

“You look good,” she comments as she sits. “Pancakes please.”

“On the house,” Ruby replies. “With maple syrup.”

“Oh, no,” Belle protests. “You'd have done the same.”

“Chain you to the radiator and then run?”

“Good point,” she concedes, laughing. She pauses, looking at her friend. “Would blueberries and cream on my pancakes be too much to ask?”

Ruby grins. “I'll bring all three,” she promises, turning.


Ruby stops, half-turns.

“I wouldn't have let them get you.”

“I know,” she says softly and turns back to the counter before Belle can see her tears.
