A Disney Duck Fanfic:
Instead of being purely based on one entity, this story takes background from Classic Donald Duck cartoons, Ducktales, and Darkwing Duck.
Stef With a F
Disney owns most of these characters. Dumbella's past as Bella Widgeon is mine, as are the characters of Melanie Widgeon, Cindy Ganderquack, Jeffery Ruddy, Ronnie and Lisa Mallard, and whomever else I mention in the future.
This story is sequel of sorts to the story Back to the Nest. You should be able to catch the bulk of the story without reading Back to the Nest, but it would give you more background on Bella Widgeon. Though, if you plan on reading Back to the Nest, this story reveals a major spoiler or two. Besides, I would love to know what you think.
This story is rated PG-13 for adult themes, but nothing really major.
Thank You to Jenn and Nana for Beta-reading this story.
The sound of a motorcycle momentarily quieted the room.
Daisy walked to the window.
"Donald," she said. "Looks like Bella is home."
"Doesn't she have to work tomorrow?" Donald grumbled.
Daisy shook her head and waved her at Donald.
"Shh, she deserves to have a life," she told her husband.
"She's not a good role model " he mumbled. "And besides why are you on her side?"
"You two made up, remember? Don't take your anger out on her," Daisy stated.
"Oh!" she Daisy exclaimed. "She has someone with her!"
"She's not bringing her boyfriend!" Donald shouted, jumping to conclusions.
"No," Daisy said, with a sign of relief. "Huey is with her."
"Boyfriend?" Dewey wondered out loud.
Launchpad turned his key, and walked in the front door.
It was late and he did not suspect anyone being up. After his date with Bella, he made a stop at Hamburger Hippo and ordered a hamburger, some fries, and a Coo-Coo Cola.
He placed the food on the coffee table and flicked on NBC, he was waiting for Late Night that started 1:30am. It was delayed an hour because the local affiliate decided to air Jeri Spring Chicken after the Tonight Show instead. This show usually consisted of eccentric people doing crazy things, or worse yet, episodes of women testing up to seven men as potential fathers of their illegitimate children. The host is a forty something chicken with the wardrobe of a seventeen-year-old. She also seemed trapped in the 80's, using terms such as Totally Radical and Most Triumphant, not to mention Bogus or Heinous.
Jeri: Like Oh My God! That is shirt is like totally bitchin! Gag me with a Spoon! Do not tell me you slept with such a Barney!
Female Guest: Uh, eww You watch Barney and Friends?!
Male Guest: Jeri is tripping yo! That show is crap, yo!
Jeri: No No, I mean he is a geek! A Dork! A Date-me-not!!
"Belch!" Launchpad said, glancing at his watch.
Launchpad heard someone coming down the stairs, and looked up.
Gosalyn, who was wearing a Mighty Ducks T-shirt, and black leggings, was coming down the stairs.
She saw Launchpad and stopped with a frown.
"Launchpad?" she said in a low voice. "Can I watch the Late Show with you?"
Launchpad looked up and smiled at Gosalyn. A frown replaced the smile when he noticed the upset look on her face.
"Gos?" he said with concern. "Of course you can come watch TV with me, but what's wrong?"
Gosalyn continued walking down the stairs.
She reached for one of Launchpad's French fries, and then sat next to Launchpad on the couch.
"Well I had an argument with Dad," she began.
Bella parked her bike in the garage and looked at Huey questioningly.
"So why were you out so late?" she asked.
Huey flashed a fake smile.
"Well, I was out with Gosalyn, and I accidentally fell asleep on her couch," he answered.
Bella flashbacked to seventeen years ago.
She was 16, and she was with her boyfriend Kyle Duck. She thought she was so much in love, and she was with him every second. Then one morning she found out she was pregnant. She and Kyle had a quickie marriage, that ended almost has fast as it started. After a couple years, he went to college and never saw her again.
"I see," Bella said, returning to the present. "I hope you two are being careful."
"Mom " Huey moaned. "It's not like that with Gosalyn and me."
Back inside, Donald was still pacing.
"Daisy!" he shouted. "Go see what they are doing out there."
"Donald " Daisy sighed.
Daisy looked out the window. Bella and Huey were on the porch, approaching the door.
"Donald, they are coming in now," Daisy informed.
Daisy moved away from the door, just in time for Bella to open it.
"Daisy, Donald, Dewey," she said, astonishment. "You are all still up."
"Well " Daisy started.
"Huey " Donald interrupted. "Where have you been all night?"
"He was out with me," Bella stated. "We met up with each other, when I was on my way home, and we decided to have some personal time alone together. You know catch a dessert, small talk."
Donald was livid. "At one in the morning?! Why didn't you call? We were worried sick. I was going to call the cops!"
"We lost track of time " Bella began.
"Dumbella!" Donald shouted.
"Donald, he was with me, there was no reason to get so rattled," she stated.
"But you should have called!" Donald shouted again.
"I think Donald and I should call it a night. We can discuss this in the morning. Goodnight Huey, Dewey, Bella " Daisy said.
Donald looked at Daisy like she was crazy, though, Daisy dragged him out of the front room anyway.
Dewey waved goodnight, stating that he was mighty tired after rehearsing all night. He retired to his bedroom, and left Huey alone with his mother.
Huey looked at Bella with confused glance.
"Why you do that?" he asked, amazed. "I knew Uncle Donald was destined to ground me."
"Probably was, and you most definitely deserved it. Especially, since you did not feel like correcting me. But, then again, of course, you didn't want to be punished."
Huey remained silent for a moment.
"Well, Thank you Mom," he responded, then started to walk away.
Bella shook her head, "Oh no you don't."
"I was once a teenager myself Huey, and a wild one to boot. We all make mistakes. But I will tell you one thing, you better learn from them. And also, I am your mother. And it is time that you respect me. Goodnight."
Bella walked out of the room, and went to her downstairs apartment.
Author Note / Disclaimer:
Kyle Duck is of my design. Disney History does not name the boys' father, and until now I was ignoring that fact, but thought I would give him a name now. Thanks go to Nana for helping me name the character. Back in Back to the Nest, I mentioned that Bella was unmarried. Well, she was unmarried by the time the boys were six years old.
Note: April 8, 2004: I have found that some people give the name Daniel Duck as the boys father, even though it's not offical. So, we are using my official name "Kyle" :-P
