Rumple was tired. But then, who wouldn't be feeling tired when you had two babies at home? Three if you included DeSoto. Sure, he was the Dark One and didn't need sleep, but that didn't mean he wasn't feeling a bit worn out. Still, with that feeling of fatigue came a sense of great happiness. He was doing alright- he wasn't completely messing up this fatherhood thing again. Almost everything was different from what it had been like when Baelfire was a baby, but so much of it was the same, too. He remembered how much he'd done for Baelfire, and it helped him with Gideon and Giselle.

Maybe that was why he had gone to visit his elder son. Belle was looking after the children, though he was sure she would ask her friends over while he was out, and he knew she had things well in hand. He wasn't SO protective that he felt he couldn't leave the babies with their own mother for a couple hours.

She wouldn't let him be, anyway- she would take great offense if he acted like that!

He ventured up to the door of Neal's place, the Dark One rapping on it lightly. While he had more than enough magic to poof inside if he wanted to, it would be totally impolite, so he was happy to wait outside for his son to answer the door.

While he had been busy with the kids, he had done his best not to ignore the other important people in his life, too. He had so few friends, especially after everything that had happened with the demon, and even fewer family members. Alright, maybe that wasn't true. Given his crazy bloodline, he probably had more family than friends, but still- he didn't want any of the ones he actually spoke to thinking he had forgotten about them, especially his son.

After what had happened on April Fool's day, which his sight missing and Belle having forgotten who she was for a day, he had needed his son more than ever. Or.. .daughter, as it were. Thankfully that whole mess was behind them, but Rumple still felt very grateful.

He wanted to spend some time with Neal, and had even brought some food with him as a bit of an offering. What father didn't want to make sure their son was eating properly?

Neal was happy. For the first time in so long he had a real family. Not only Emma, both of his parents, a son and Belle. But he now had two new siblings that he loved more then anything. With this happiness came slight worry, since in the past whenever he was happy something or someone took it all away. But he didn't want these thoughts in his head anymore. Everything seemed to be going fine. This wasn't like all those other times, he was finally settled down. And the craziness seemed to be over.

Neal knew that his father was busy, but, a part of him was also feeling slightly left out. He knew that his father and Belle were probably tired, and, he would offer to keep them for a night, but, he also knew that they weren't ready to part with them just yet. He was always just a phone call away though.

Neal knew that Emma had been working nights a lot more recently. So he just let her sleep while hendid his best to be as quiet as possible while waking up. Hearing that knock on his door, Neal looked up and placed a kiss on Emma's head before standing up and heading over to answer the door.

Neal didn't know who would be knocking. Most people he knew who would visit him here had a key to his apartment, and the ones who didn't probably didn't need to knock on the door to come in. But then again with the new people turning up, and, his family growing who knew who was where these days. He wasn't used to having this many people to come visit him at any time. So Neal had probably forgotten a few.

Neal knew that with that April Fool's stuff, he had spent more time with his brother and sister then he had before. And he wasn't even physically himself. Not that that had really mattered. He enjoyed the bonding time with them. And Wendy too.

Neal answered the door and spotted his father standing on the other side of it. "Oh hey papa. What brings you here?" Neal asked. He was grateful that his father had come to see him, but, he did have an inkling to ask.

Rumple smiled when the man opened the door, secretly glad to see him as a male rather than a female. Not that he didn't want a daughter, of course, but Neal had been his first born son. Seeing him as anything else had been off-putting at best. Then again, it wasn't like he had actually seen much of anything. He had been bumping into tables and stumbling blindly around the house at the time. He never wanted to have to deal with that again.

It had been a horrible day all around- it was hardly any wonder that he found no amusement in April fool's. It was just the kind of holiday his father would love.

He didn't let it bother him- instead, he smiled at his son, holding up the bag in his hands. "I brought you some food. Nothing special, just some fruit. I just.. thought you might like it." He chuckled lightly, waiting for him to let him inside before wandering into the place. He looked around, smiling faintly. The place looked nice- it always did. Not a cluttered mess like his own house.

Which, thankfully, Belle had helped a lot with.

Setting the bag on the kitchen table, he turned to look at his son again. "I thought we should talk for a bit. Catch up. I haven't had much time to speak to you with the babies- I know I haven't been the most attentive recently and I apologize." When he wasn't looking after the twins, he was either working on magic or taking a nap.

The man smiled at his son, though it soon faded. As he turned to face him, he felt it- the crackle of magic sparking to life without warning. He felt like he had suddenly gone back in time, watching dumbly as a portal opened near his son, a strong force pulling to suck the man in. "Bae!" He heard himself scream, his body launching forward so he could take hold of his son's hand. His other hand clasped the kitchen table, to try and hold himself there and pull Neal back. "Hold on, son!" He didn't have much purchase, though, and it felt just like the situation he had been in all those years ago.

Fall into the portal with his son, or let go of his hand and save himself.

Neal gave the man a small smile, as he saw his father there. He was glad that he was here honestly. And, was glad that he could actually see him now. Not that he had minded being a guide dog, but, he couldn't look after his brother and sister, and, his father. Of course he had wanted to of course.

It was a confusing day all around then. But, luckily it was over, and, they are all able to move past that.

Neal came out of those thoughts as he once again looked at his father. He placed his hands in his pockets as he watched his father hold up a bag. “Yeah I do. Thanks papa.” Neal said before stepping aside and letting his father inside the apartment. Neal closed the door and then followed after his father. It normally wasn't as neat as this, more like a bunch of stuff everywhere.

Luckily Emma and Wendy had helped him clean it up a bit.

Neal gave his father another small smile as he leant sideways against the table. “Yeah I would like that. It's alright babies can keep you busy. But, I do appreciate you making the effort now. You don't have to apologise though.” Neal said. He was not normally alone in this town anyway.

He was standing with his father when he felt something vibrating underneath his floor. It was a feeling he knew all too well. Neal soon found himself flashing back to his 14 year old self, hanging through a portal with his father on the other end. “Papa” Neal said, feeling his father's grip. Now it was just like back then. And, it made it all too more real. “I don't think I can.” Neal attempted to grip as hard as he could, but, it wasn't like he had much to hold onto. All he had was his father's hand. Exactly like all those years ago.

The question was would he come with him this time? Or would he once again let him go?

Rumple kept hold of his son's hand, desperately clinging to the counter in an attempt not to get sucked into the portal. But his grip on Neal's hand was slipping and he knew he was stuck in the same horrible situation as before. And he had just as much to lose now as he'd had back then, it just wasn't his magic. What if there was no way back this time? What if they got stuck in this realm and couldn't get back to his wife? His kids? But, on the other hand, what if he lost Neal all over again? What if he re-lived the same hell of knowing he had let his son go?

It was one of those no-win situations where he was doomed to lose something. He felt tears stinging his eyes as he clutched his son's hand, feeling him slipping a little further into the portal.

"Bae!" He wailed, "no!" He couldn't pull his son out- he didn't have the strength. His magic was being reflected by the strong magic of the portal. He couldn't do anything but make a choice.

He felt his hand release what it had been holding- the hand clutching the counter gave way. He couldn't lose his son. Not again. Not ever again. He couldn't think of anything else. In that moment, he just knew he couldn't let go of his son's hand. And he didn't. He felt himself get pulled into the portal with his son, the man tugging his son towards him and wrapping his arms around his upper body, doing his best to protect him as they both tumbled through the portal. He couldn't fully protect a grown man, especially one taller than him, but he could do his best.

He clung to his son the entire, messy trip through the portal, and only let go when the portal spit them out into a desolate, barren wasteland, where his head connected with the ground below them. At that moment, darkness consumed him, and he finally let go of his son.

Neal continued to grip his father's hand, without anything else much to grip onto. He knew how his luck with portals normally went, and, it normally ended with him being dropped through the portal. And, before this town he was always alone on the other side. Neal couldn't help but wonder where it would drop him this time. And, if there would actually be a way back. Neal had made a promise to Emma and Henry that he wouldn't leave them again. He had every intention to keep that promise. No matter where he ended up he would find a way back to them. Neal must've inherited Emma's parents trait. About always finding her.

No matter what, they had found each other. It's what family did. Neal felt his hand slipping out of his father's more.

“Papa.” Neal said, as he tried so hard to keep his grip on his father's hand. Neal let out a soft sigh of panic as he realised this was going to truly test how much his father had changed.

Neal didn't see much in terms of what his father was doing, as he was falling through a little bit more. His focus was more on the portal underneath him, and, he felt himself falling through completely. Neal didn't really pay much attention to much else as the portal was taking him down.

He felt the portal drop him to the ground, and, he felt a rocky sort of ground underneath him. Grunting softly, Neal began to move a little as he slowly stood up. Neal looked around wondering where he was. Neal's gaze then went to his papa, noticing he had actually followed him. “Papa.” Neal said, rushing to his side and gently shaking him awake. “Papa are you ok?”

Rumple groaned lowly, opening his eyes when he felt someone shake him. He blinked a couple times, trying to focus on what was happening around him. The world was blurry and.. .dusty. Then just dusty. Slowly, he looked up at his son, and almost instantly reality sank in for him. He sat himself up sharply, gasping as he went. “Bae!” He yelped, moving to place a hand on the side of the man’s face. “Are you alright?!” Immediately, he remembered what had happened. The portal and how he had fallen through. How he had done his best to hold onto his son.

Looked like it had worked- they were both in some strange, desolate realm he was pretty sure he had never seen before.

He winced, moving the hand from Neal to the side of his head. It was tender- there was a large bruise on his forehead already forming. Thankfully, though, there wasn’t any blood. Not that it saved him from a concussion. But at least they didn’t have an open wound to worry about.

He sighed faintly, lowering his hand again before taking another look around. “Where are we?” He asked, though quickly realized how stupid a question that was, “of course you wouldn’t know, I’m sorry. I’m just… trying to figure things out.”

The man frowned, slowly getting himself to his feet. He couldn’t believe this. He was stuck in another realm with his son. It was so… ironic. He felt foolish for thinking about their past at a time like this. They needed to find a way home.

He raised a hand to his forehead again, attempting to use a spell to heal the bruise. Nothing happened. “Looks like I can’t use magic in this realm,” he sighed. Now it was really like old times.
