The Old King ~OUAT Panfiction (Book 3)
***BOOK THREE TO THE PIPER'S SONG SERIES***
After two long years of remorse and loneliness, 17 year old Anne Beastly has found herself back in Neverland, forced to be confronted with her new feelings for Pan. Shortly succumbing to them, Anne welcomes this new life with open arms. She's living young forever with the boy she used to hate. Except there's a new gang of lost boys, and some with cruel intentions in mind. Not only that, the darkness from the shadow keeper's curse has sought refuge in Neverland's dark jungle, an ugly old past that still lingers, sustained as far as the eye can see -- but haunts Anne in her sleep, pulling her into a darker part of herself, and soon, the Beastly girl becomes the mirror image of who Pan used to be.
"She would be haunted with dreams of her older brother leading her to wherever Pan was hiding, a hopeful look in his eyes and a smile on his face, except...they would never get to his hiding places. For two years, Anne had to pretend Pan's loss never affected her. It felt like an endless suppression. She was a bird with clipped wings, until now."
