Happy Birthday Belle

Belle's P.O.V

There I was hanging on to the edge desperately trying to pull myself up. My strength was failing as my teal eyes looking up seeing Eddie knocked out cold, poor Jessica tied to a chair with Toon proof rope. Her eyes full of fear as she kept glancing to me and towards the ground where just a few feet away, was Roger. He was unconscious and like Jessica tied up with Toon proof rope, on a hook being lowered down into a large canister of DIP.

"So sorry, you got involved Ms. Belle," said a voice. I glared angrily at the person standing above me as my left hand slipped. Now I was only holding on by one hand, slowly losing my grip.

"BELLE!" shouted Jessica as she struggled to get loose. "Leave her alone you monster!" she growled her eyes flashing.

"Monster eh? Sorry my dear but you are to blame," the voice said smirking at her. Then the person turned their attention back to me. "Again so sorry you had to be involved Ms. Belle, you truly were good for business. No hard feelings I hope," the voice said and then I felt a huge pain spread through my hand, for the person was stepping on it.

"AHH!" I yelled feeling my right hand losing it's grip.

"BELLE, NOOOO!" screamed Jessica.

A few days earlier

"Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Belle, happy birthday to you," sang everyone. A huge chocolate cake with a 21 birthday candle was in my sights. I smiled seeing everyone, Smarty, Psycho, Wheezy, Greasy, and Steve all smiling singing off key. Eddie with Dolores smiling at me, their children Abby and Teddy laughing at the silly birthday dance Roger was doing. Jessica sitting next to them clapping along, even Squeaks was in my lap squeaking his birthday song. Lulu behind the weasels crying a bit, making me blush.

"Make a wish Belle," Eddie said.

"Okay," I said with a grin and I blew out the candle. It went out yet sadly stayed lit.

"Come on Belle blow really hard you'll get it," Roger said winking at me. I smiled and again I blew harder yet the candle stayed lit.

"Let me guess Acme's trick candle?" I asked chuckling a bit.

"Always a classic at birthday parties," Roger laughed.

"You guys, that joke never gets old," I laughed. Soon the cake was cut and presents were opened. The weasels each combined their money and bought me, my favorite painting Starry Night. "You guys this is beautiful thank you," I sighed as I hugged them.

"Well we remembered you liked that painting when we cracked that art counterfit scam, so the boys and I saved up to get you something nice," Smarty said smirking.

"Well thank you guys," I told them.

"Happy Birthday, Aunt Belle," Abby who was now three years old handed me a paper birthday card. It was a bright yellow piece of paper with her and little Teddy's hands drawn on the cover. In bright blue crayon spelled out Happy Birthday. It was adorable I picked her up and hugged her.

"Thanks so much sweetheart I love it," I said and kissed little Teddy on the forehead. Abby smiled happy that I liked their gift, Teddy just drooled on his bib.

"This is from us," Eddie said handing me a small box wrapped in blue paper. I smiled and opened it revealing a black umbrella with a rain coat.

"Thanks guys, I really like it," I told them seeing Eddie smiling, Dolores beaming as Teddy giggled. Practical gifts are always good for someone like me.

"Our turn, our turn," Roger said scrambling for the present he and Jessica bought me.

"Okay, Roger what is it?" I chuckled as a big box wrapped in green paper yet the box had air holes in it. Another odd thing was the box was moving.

"When Roger was trying to find you a gift, he looked at a hundred stores; then we were walking past a pet store and he knew you would fall in love with our present," Jessica said with a smile. I lifted the box lid up to reveal a small male puppy. He was about the size of Squeaks with chocolate fur, yet over his eyes were black rings like a mask, and his ears were grey colored, and he had baby blue eyes.

"AWWW a puppy, how cute, hey there little guy," I cooed. The puppy barked at me wagging his tail, as Squeaks looked at him. Squeaks squeaked at him and the puppy barked back wagging his tail. "Oh they like each other, thanks guys, " I said holding my new puppy.

"I knew you would love him," Roger said happily.

"So, what are you going to call him?" asked Jessica.

"Hmm, how about Bandit, you like that name?" I asked the puppy. The puppy barked and wagged his tail.

"I'll take that as a yes, welcome to the team Bandit," I said happily. Soon everyone was enjoying the party, Abby wanted to play with Bandit, it was so adorable. Yet, Jessica motioned me over to a boothe away from the party. I followed wondering what she wanted to talk about. "Thanks for baking me that cake Jessica, it was delicious," I told her taking a seat next to her.

"Oh you are welcome Belle," she said with a smirk. Sadly her smirk faded as she looked worried about something.

"Hey Jess, you okay?" I asked placing my hand over hers as an act of comfort.

"I'm sorry I didn't want to ruin your party but I need your help," she said looking upset.

"Easy Red, take a deep breathe, tell me what is wrong," I told her. Jessica took a deep breathe and then opened her purse to hand me a note. It was a plain piece of paper but written on the paper read I forgive you. "I forgive you? okay do you know who sent this note to you?" I asked her.

"No I found it in my dressing room just yesterday," Jessica told me. "Though I think I know who it might be from," she added wringing the napkin in her hands.

"Okay, who do you think sent it to you?" I asked grabbing my extra notebook I carried around just in case I needed it.

"It has to be Roger, the note said I forgive you," Jessica told me.

"Um okay but what does Roger forgive you for?" I asked. Roger was not the type of guy to hold a grudge especially to someone he loved.

"Really Belle, what do you think?" Jessica asked me with a raised eyebrow.

"Come on Jessica, the whole Acme, Doom thing happened years ago, you honestly are telling me that Roger is just now forgiving you? It wasn't even your fault I blame Maroon and Doom," I whispered so that the guys wouldn't hear me.

"What if he didn't forgive me? What if all this time he was still angry at me only till now he forgives me?" asked Jessica a pained look on her face.

"Okay, okay, here's my advice after the party just ask him if he sent you the note. I will talk to Eddie tomorrow to see what he thinks," I told her.

"I just don't want to know for years my honey bunny hated me," Jessica said wiping a tear away.

"He doesn't hate you Jessica, believe me, Roger loves you with all his heart. Just talk to him, and if he didn't send the letter then we will find out who did, I promise I won't let anything bad happen to you or him," I vowed holding her hand.

"Thank you Belle, you are a good friend, okay I will talk to Roger later tonight, I just hope he didn't send the note," Jessica said.

"Hey guys come on what are you doing way over there?" asked Roger hopping over to us. He bowed lowly to Jessica holding out his hand to her. "Milady, may I have this dance?" he asked his ears even bowing. Jessica blushed as a smile came to her face.

"I would love too honey bunny," she cooed and he led her to the dance floor.

"Come on hermana let's dance," Greasy said holding out his hand to me. I chuckled and took his hand as he led me to the dance floor. The rest of the night was full of laughter and joy, none of us were aware of the danger we would soon be in.
