Well, I've decided while waiting for Once Upon a Time to come back, to write about Lily's time on Neverland. I hope you like it and will check out my other story with Lily, 'Say You'll Remember'.
And then, in that very moment that I love them...
I destroy them.

"Where do you think you're going, Lily?" Slowly, I turned around, keeping an arm around Bae, and sneered angrily at the lost boy, my eyes bleeding red. I pulled Bae closer as the two other boys advanced on us, though Felix remained behind them, his expression blank as usual.
"What does it look like to you, Felix." I snarled, a fireball coming to life in my palm as the two came even closer and I pushed Bae behind me. "We're leaving."
He simply smiled faintly and stepped forward, pushing the other two out of the way until he was right in front of me, staring me down. He leaned closer, causing me to stiffen, the fireball resting right next to his stomach while the hand on Bae's shoulder began to glow magenta.
"Well, I can't let you do that, Lily. You know what Pan said: I can't allow you to leave or escape." I leaned my face closer, delighted when he flinched back ever so slighty.
"Wanna bet?" I brought my magenta covered hand forward, catching Felix in the stomach with my fireball before the spell in my other hand caught all three boys and sent them flying to the ground.
I grabbed Bae's hand, nearly dragging him as he stared at the three unmoving boys.
"Bae!" He pulled against me violently.
"No! I hate magic." I grabbed his cloak and yanked his face to mine, hissing into it.
"Well, magic is about to save your ass." I took off again, silently thanking him when he lifted his feet and followed. "Now come on! We've got a lot of ground to cover!"
We spent the next few hours pushing past bushes and ferns and dodging trees until we reached a small cave. I took a step forward, halting when Bae's arm shot out and turned to meet his frightened gaze.
"What? We can hide in there." He shook his head wildly.
"Those are the Echo Caves!" At my blank stare he huffed. "We'll get lost!" I raised an eyebrow and turned to look at the cave, feeling with my magic before I turned back to him.
"I don't sense any magic." He glared at me, bristling at my tone.
"Well I've been here longer! And I've seen the pirates get lost in there and die because they couldn't get out!" I froze as he spoke, my mind working over what he just said.
"Did you say Pirates?" He stopped and nodded, his demeanor darkening.
"Yes and we need to stay away from them too."
"Why? If they have a ship we can-" He started shaking his head again, staring up at me with anxious eyes.
"They're stuck here too! Hook's been trying to find a way off this island for years." I stiffened, my voice soft as I repeated the name.
"Hook?" He nodded, his pale face telling me that he too, knew exactly who the pirate was and what he'd done. "He's the one that-"
"Took my mother from my father, I know." I raised an eyebrow at his surly mood, though it didn't exactly surprise me.
"He killed her, didn't he?" Bae opened his mouth, freezing as a smooth, accented voice came through the trees.
"Actually, luv. It was the crocodile that killed her, not me." I whirled around, pressing Bae against my side as a man, dressed completely in black leather slowly stalked out of the trees, a smirk on his handsome face. "Hello, Baelfire." He nodded to the boy, who remained silent, and turned his attention to me. "And, who is this lovely lass?"
"I'm Lillith." He bowed to me, extending one of his arms, and I stilled when I realized that he didn't have a hand on the end of his arm. He pulled out of the bow and raised a hook to his face, resting it against his cheek as he smirked charmingly at us.
"Captain Killian James, at your service, luv." He smiled at my stunned expression and glanced at his hook with a soft chuckle.
"Well, I suppose Captain Hook would be more appropriate, don't you luv?"
Let me know what you think please!
Well, I'd like to start thanking the reviewers of the chapters and I'll start with this one!
Mirage: Thank you so much!
Enchanted Elf: Thank you! I was too!
Chasing Yesterday Always: Thanks, I decided I'd create more of the backstory for her in the world of Once Upon a Time.
