"Ah yes, Regina’s troops roam the lands in search of the bandit princess and if caught in the crosshairs she would surely take you in to make use of your abilities for her own uses." he said summing up what she wasn’t saying, "However, the evil queen and her minions are no match for yours truly. Now what is this deal you came to make deary?" he asked her curiously as he waited for her to come out with what she really wanted, "Tonight while the night is young deary." he said pressing her for her answer.
“I need protection from you, for me, against the Evil Queen and her men all while my power is at your disposal and my services as a caretaker of this castle. My magic works on the mind and it’s protected far more greater against the manipulation of others. I can channel it through music…” Then the Pied Piper gestured her pipe in her boot. ”Mostly with my pipe, but I can also use my voice. And if you’re not interested up until this point, then I shall explain further.” Her words quick and to the point as she jumped down from her perch before the deal maker. ”I am very good at swaying people with my music even the most difficult ones. I could make your clients willingly sign your contract with no struggle whatsoever. I can make grown men cry, children becoming heartless murdered and even make youweep." A smirk can be heard in her words, very confident.
Rumple was delighted to hear what the girl could do, and what she was willing to do for his protection. Her powers were exceptional and their applications would serve his needs perfectly, there were however some qualms he had about her. Her deal however good it sounded was too good to be true, and two her powers did have a slight hold on him, maybe he wasn’t effected as much as regular people but it was still something he didn’t fully want to have to deal with in a negative capacity., “Tell me, Deary. You’re willing to do all of that, in exchange for a little protection from little ol’ me?” he asked her curiously making sure he understood the girl’s terms.
