So, hello everyone. Not much this week. I'm kind of interested to see how the writers play things out from this week's episode. So, I've got more just moments I wanted to see with the people they haven't brought back yet.
Thanks for reading & hope you enjoy! :)
"Rumple," Belle called with a touch of amusement but mainly confusion in her tone. "Why is the poor, missing woman in our basement?"
"Oh yes, I probably should've told you about that," he commented as he came up next to her in the kitchen. "The former Mrs. Nolan is in our basement, dearie, because the Huntsman brought her here from Regina's lake house where I've been keeping her since she disappeared. She's going amazingly come back from the dead today."
At her raised eyebrow, he continued, "Don't look at me like that. I'm always very nice to the women I imprison in my basement."
"Oh, this I know better than anyone. She's not going to take this as part of the deal, you know." His sly grin told her he knew exactly what was coming before he kissed her cheek and grabbing his car keys.
Smiling as she shook her head, she merely said as he left for the shop, "Have a good day working against greater evil, my dear…"
"So, what do you think about August? Should we let him in on Operation Cobra?" Henry looked up at Graham expectantly as the man stroked Snowball's head.
Shrugging, Graham sighed, "I don't know, Henry. I was never good with people. Do you trust him?"
Considering that for a bit, Henry gave a nod, "Yeah. I don't think he's against us at all. I think he's kind of like Mr. Gold. He's not necessarily with us, but he's definitely against the Queen. Who do you think he is?"
"I've got no idea on this one, buddy, especially because he came from out of town. Your guess is as good as mine. What does Emma think of him?"
Henry smiled, "I think he annoys her because he flirts with her. It's actually kinda funny." Graham smirked back at him, knowing it was rather amusing when Emma was irritated with someone that wasn't you.
"You breaking out of the house to go to Mary Margaret's party tonight?"
Nodding fiercely, Henry said, "Of course! I think I'm going to get her a present actually. She deserves a pick-me-up. Charming is still being stupid, I think. We made a card for her at school. Do you want to see?"
Before Graham could give a sign to either the negative or affirmative, the boy was rummaging in his bag. Smiling at the kid's enthusiasm, he looked at the huge red glitter-fest of a card. Laughing when he read the message, he handed it back to Henry, "You guys certainly cut to the chase on that one. It's great. I'm sure she'll love it."
Beaming, Henry looked up at him, "Are you coming?"
"No, I don't think so. Too many people to reveal my existence to the world and whatnot. I think I'll find Maleficent. See if she's got any ideas. Snowball is going to love it, though."
The wolf yipped in agreement. Maybe Ruby would be there. He liked Ruby. She smelled nice.
Smiling at the canine that had really become his best friend, Henry nodded, "I know. He loves people when they aren't evil. You should come over before, though. We can all sit around and watch movies and stuff and you can steal mom's hot chocolate so she gets mad at you."
Grinning, Graham ruffled the boy's hair, "You are too much like your mom. You're too ornery."
"I'm glad you're in love with my mom. You two are good together. It's kind of nice having a bit of a dad." Smirking at the speechless expression he knew he was leaving, Henry got up and jogged back to the school with the end of the lunch hour. Snowball sat on the ground, barking with laughter at his friend's expression.
Emma strode down the hallway before Regina with more purpose than she'd felt in a long time. Her mind had made itself and her legs were only too happy to keep the attitude going. Sidney was stupid and lovelorn and she had no doubt he'd betray her in a second, but that did not mean she was going to allow that bitch to make him take the fall for kidnapping. It was not happening.
She was so sick of Regina weaseling her way out of everything!
"I'm getting my son back!" she declared toward the end of her speech, shushing the mayor multiple times. At the snide disbelief in the evil woman's eyes, Emma took a step closer, "Don't give that look to me. You think that just because you've got some keys to the town and Mr. Lovesick in there, your arrogance is going to let you win? Henry is my son and I am taking him back. No matter what you throw at me, I guarantee that I have bigger, better, more loyal friends than you do."
At the beginning of hesitance in the mayor's eyes, she grinned, "You've pissed off a lot of people, mayor. There are plenty of people who will only too willingly help bring about the fall of the queen…"
Not looking back, she marched back into her office. She needed to call Mr. Gold. He was good with legal stuff (understanding and breaking it was style). She needed his help. Plus, she hadn't spoken to Belle in a while. She liked the brunette's company. Then she got to go home to Graham.
Come what may, she was going to have a good rest of the afternoon.
