Description:

When Rumplestiltskin crafted the Curse, he designed it to keep everyone trapped in misery until it could be broken. Any love or happiness found in Storybrooke will be turned to heartbreak and despair, and Rumple - believing Belle dead and with Bae lost beyond the town line - didn't think it would pose a problem. He never imagined that, when the Saviour returned and he regained his memories, his lost love would be walking around town harbouring a crush on his cursed persona, unable and unwilling to stay away from him.

A declaration of love would bring them both a great deal of happiness; it would also bring the Curse crashing down around their ears. Rumple believes he's found a loophole when he agrees to keep their relationship purely physical: casual sex with no strings attached, no feelings and no obligations. Enough to keep her close without making either of them truly happy. However, as time goes on it becomes harder and harder to hide his true feelings, or for Belle to pretend she doesn't feel the same way.
