Aurora walked into the tiny cottage, which she had left at age 16 to become a princess. She sighed and looked around. Memories flooded back of her 5th birthday, the fairies smiling at her and hugging her, giving her a black headband to wear, which she ended up wearing up to her 16th birthday, until it was replaced with a tiara. Aurora frowned and reached up to her tiara and took it off her head, setting it on the small wooden table in the center of the room. She took the small black headband and put it on her head. She smiled and sighed. She felt like Briar Rose again. Aurora turned and smiled, as she saw her companion and husband Phillip walk in. He put his arm around her. "So, what made you want to come here?", he asked with curiousity. "It brings memories back. Wonderful memories.", she said with a big smile on her face. "So, what was it like growing up here?", Phillip asked her. "16 wonderful years with Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather. I grew up with them, although most of my birthdays didn't have a particularly stiff cake, or many presents, like most birthdays. It was worth it just to be with them.", she replied. "My only memory of this place is getting trapped by Maleficent.", Phillip said with a smirk. "Heh, sorry.", Aurora said. "It wasn't your fault, you didn't know you would have to leave that day to become a princess." He stroked his fingers through her hair. "I have good memories in this forest." Aurora smiled at his comment. "Me too." she softly said. "Remember how we met, once upon a dream?", he asked her. "I remember perfectly.", she said. Then they began to dance, and he twirled her around the room and followed what she was doing. Then, he pulled her in for a passionate kiss. When they separated, he said "It was a great memory." "And we'll make even more for years to come." Aurora said with a satisfied smile. "I know you, I walked with you Once Upon a dream...." She sighed softly and put her head on his shoulder as he sang to her. So many good memories would be made that day.
Merry Christmas, VGfan30!
