Paris, 1880, nine years after the events of 'The Phantom of the Opera'. Nine years in which all thoughts of Erik, the অ্যাঞ্জেল who'd once haunted her দিন and night had been cast aside, discarded like a broken doll. Nine years in which poor, sixteen বছর old Christine had grown up, grown up into a women of high reputation, with a handsome young husband and prospects of a child.

So much can change in nine years.

Yet it only takes a little to be hurled back into the past.

Chapter 1 :

Paris is host to a number of fine hospitals, all which produce many a fine baby from many a fine mother. It is a particular mother however, দ্বারা the name of Christine De Chagny, that our story is this time focused on.

Mme De Chagney had arrived at the Hopital de la Seine a mere two দিন previously, in labour with her first, long awaited child, and escorted দ্বারা Raoul, her rather newly wed husband, the Viscomte de Chagney. They were a handsome couple who were admired দ্বারা many, every woman wanting to be as beautiful as the young, talented soprano and every man aspiring to be rich like the dashing Viscomte. There was no doubt around Paris that this child would most certainly be a baby to be proud of.

"I'm so proud of আপনি Little Lotte. আপনি were wonderful." Raoul ব্যক্ত softly to his wife as he held her carefully against his sinewy body. After giving birth, with the minimum stress, their radiant new baby girl had been taken to be cleaned and checked over, leaving herself and Raoul some time alone at last.

"She was stunning, wasn't she?" Christine sighed happily, as she rested her head on her husbands shoulder. It is, dear reader, a great accomplishment to have a child - every mother feels it, and Christine was no exception.

"She was, and she shall be a fine young lady with many a suitor. But I wouldn't expect anything less from a child with your blood running through their veins," Raoul told her as he kissed her damp forehead sweetly.

A tender smile spread across the new mother's clammy face, illuminating her, and ridding her briefly of the taut lines of childbirth.

"But with আপনি as her father Raoul, she'll never want for anything, and that is a far greater thing than suitors. Besides, for a long time the only প্রণয় she'll want is her mother's and father's. And when her mother is away singing, it is আপনি who will comfort her in illness and entertain her in jest, so, my Viscomte, আপনি have দ্বারা far the better gift to her."

Raoul merely let a hint of a smirk play at the corner of his lips. "Perhaps," he answered, stopping any possible argument before it began. "But that is not the real problem Mme De Chagney," he continued, watching his young wife's eyes brighten at her new name, " Is what to call the tiny thing."

Christine yawned sleepily, the strains of childbirth rushing back to her as she rubbed her eyes in fatigue.

"Aria. I like Aria," Christine mumbled, already drifting out of consciousness.

Raoul smiled at her choice.

The Viscomte De Chagny was a truly blessed man.

Chapter 2 :
A couple of hours later, in which Raoul had left Christine to herself, the new mother lounged in a daze, her eyelids occasionally fluttering shut. Her thoughts waltzing around her head, to some strange, unknown music, she lifted one elegant arm, and propped up her spinning head.

Aria. A beautiful, wonderful name, one of the operatic সঙ্গীত she knew and loved so well. And now of Aria, her Aria, her little baby girl. So blissful had been Raoul's expression as he left her, that she wondered why she, the mother of the tiny thing was not quite so content as the father.

Now of course she didn't dislike the fact that she was now a mother. She was thrilled and proud, for she felt as though she was now a real woman, a woman with a big responsibility and an important purpose, unlike the insignificant girl she was before. But she had that feeling one gets when আপনি know you've done something terrible and আপনি know আপনি will surely pay the price. All of a sudden, she was glad Raoul had gone প্রথমপাতা for the night, for she didn't think she would be able so play the trouble free, contented mother in front of him as she had done for what seemed an age - when really, it had only been a mere day.

She'd tried in vain to eat, she'd tried to sleep off her qualms and put her mind at peace - yet every time she did so, she heard music, that beautiful, dark swirling সঙ্গীত of nights long ago, oh so very long ago. And everytime she heard it, in the depths of her mind, she thought of him.

He who had taught her to sing, he who had mentored her, watched over her - but not only that, he had killed for her, killed for her and she could never forget it, not in this lifetime অথবা any. Though sometimes, a few, wistful sometimes, she had thought back to her days with him with longing and without regret, thought of how different things might have been should she have

walked a different path.

But she should not think of that now. She could not, she must not. She was Raoul's, and Raoul was hers, and tiny Aria was theirs and theirs alone. No angel, however alluring. No Erik, with his pitiful face and his proclaims of undying love. Not his sweet, sad self, অথবা even the raging mad one.

Her inner conflict was interrupted দ্বারা the quiet, yet sharp cry of little Aria. Christine mentally shook herself as she stood up, reminding herself scoldingly that her little one needed her. Smoothing down her nightgown , she crossed the small hospital room to the wicker ডাবা in which the cherubic innocent lay. As she leant over the side of the cradle, she stiffled a scream.

Her baby, her precious, sweet, innocent little Aria peered up at her.

Her eyes were a shining, glowing, unmistakable colour of gold.

this movie was absolutely amazing. i feel bad for the phantom because all he wanted was someone to hear his music-his one true passion. no one was able to because no one looked beyond his infection. christine was judgmental like all the others. she was afraid of him because of his unfortunate disease even if all he did was adore her. she chose raul because he was normal and excepted দ্বারা the world. i dont think the phantom was evil at all. he did what he did because christine acted like all the others and broke his heart. he loved her and she didnt see him as a real human being only as a monster. all he wanted was for someone to প্রদর্শনী they cared and loved him too but she couldnt do that. he had enough of the world shunning him so he lashed out. this is why i HATE raul and dislike christine. they think he is evil but they are the evil ones.
