A/N: My ever first "The Sound of Music (1965)" Fan Fiction. Please review. It would mean a lot to me. Enjoy the story!
"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens," the von Trapp children chanted. They were trying to make themselves to feel better, ever since their Fräulein Maria left unexpectedly.
"Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favorite things," the von Trapp children sang. "Why don't I feel better?" little Gretl said sadly and walked to the eldest, Liesl.
"Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes-" "Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes," the children were cut off when they heard someone singing with them. They looked at where the voice came and- Fräulein Maria!
"Silver white winters that melt into springs, these are a few of my favorite things!" Maria continued, dropping her guitar case and bag on the grass and stretching her arms out to hug the children who she loved the most. "When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don't feel, so bad!" they all sung in unison.
"Oh, children, I'm so glad to see you!" Maria said happily. "We missed you!" Marta said and gave her a toothy smile. "Oh, I missed you. Kurt, how are you?" Maria said and turned to Kurt. "Hungry," Kurt replied happily. Everyone laughed.
Gretl suddenly raised her finger up, in which was covered in a bandage. Maria bent down to Gretl. "Gretl, what happened to your finger?" Maria asked, concerned. "It got caught!" Gretl replied. "Caught in what?" Maria replied to Gretl, sounding more concerned than a while ago. "Friedrich's teeth," Gretl replied. The rest of the children laughed and Maria smiled.
"Liesl are you alright?" Maria asked while standing up and walking with the children. "Just fair," Liesl replied a bit dully. "Any telegrams delivered here lately?" Maria said. "None at all, Fräulein. But I'm learning to accept it. I'll be glad when school begins," Liesl said.
Maria turned to Liesl. "Oh, Liesl you can't use school to escape your problems. You have to face them. Oh, I have so much to tell you all," Maria said with a gleaming smile. "We have things to tell you too," Louisa said, sounding a bit worried. "I'm sure you do," Maria replied.
"The most important thing is that father's going to be married," Brigitta said sadly. "Married?" Maria said, surprised. She also felt a bit broken, because one of the reasons she came back is for the Captain.
"Yes, to Baroness Schrader," Louisa answered Maria. Maria felt even more broken, but this time a bit angry. The Baroness told her that very night that the Captain was in love with her. I bet she only told me that to bring me away and get the Captain to herself, Maria thought. But what's her rights? Maria isn't the Captain's wife.
"Oh, I see," Maria replied, stunned.
The children see the Captain on the veranda. They quickly chattered about Maria coming back from the abbey to their father. Maria and the Captain just looked at each other.
"Good evening, Captain," Maria said, still looking at the Captain. "Good evening," he replied.
"All right, everyone inside. Go and get your dinner," Captain Georg von Trapp said.
The children practically ran inside. "Dinner!" they chanted.
The Captain and Maria just stood there, looking at each other. They eyes were also locked on each other.
The Captain walks down the stairs to Maria. "You left without saying goodbye- even to the children," he started. "Well, it was wrong of me. Forgive me," Maria replied. Their eyes were still locked on each other.
"Why did you?" the Captain asked. "Please don't ask me, anyway, the reason no longer exists," Maria replied.
The Baroness suddenly comes out. "Fräulein Maria! You've returned! Oh, isn't this wonderful, Georg?" she said and held the Captain's hand. The Captain was still looking at Maria. He seemed hypnotized by Maria's beauty and simplicity. "May I wish every happiness, Baroness, and you too, Captain. The children tell me you're going to be married," Maria said, walking towards the two. "Thank you, my dear," the Baroness replied to Maria.
Maria starts to run up the stairs to go inside the von Trapp villa. "You are back to uh, stay?" the Captain said, stopping Maria. Maria turned around to the Captain. She felt broken seeing him and the Baroness together. "Only until the regimens are made for another governess," Maria said. She turned back around and went back to the villa.
The Baroness looked at the Captain. She noticed the Captain was still attracted to Maria. She felt jealousy all over her.
The two returned back to the villa.
A/N: Yup. This is the Prologue. It ain't Chapter 1 yet. Well, how is it? I know it's just like that one part in the movie. There's more in Chapter 1. I'll see you there! :)
