Everything feels as if it's been happening very quickly and very slowly at once. The castle had been frightening and exhilarating at once and she had been so giddy to see all her friends again, but so dismayed to discover them in their original forms. Worse, of course, had been when she sat on the rug of the reading room and confessed that she didn't know that she was ever going to be the one to break the curse.

"I wish I could," she said. "And it isn't that I don't love him in my own way, but..." Belle's attention drew towards the door, where she had asked Jacob to stay for a moment. "But I think that there's someone else and I couldn't imagine a world without him." Disappointment had been so evident, but Belle could manage past that. She was simply grateful that she had managed to see them again after thinking she would never get that chance.

Now, with the gates behind them and the sun beginning to set in the distance, Belle did what she had been longing for -- she simply wrapped her arms snugly around Jacob's waist and held on as tightly as he could permit her.

"I'm glad we came," she admitted, speaking the words into his chest. "But I'm so very tired, all the same."
