After the magical time they've spent together, Emma and Regina felt closer than ever before.

They laid in Regina's bed for ten serene moments before jumping up when they heard Regina's front door being opened.

They quickly got dressed, before Emma turned to Regina and asked, "How do I look?"

Regina looked up as she zipped her pants. "Beautiful." She said with a radiant smile.

Emma rolled her eyes. "Yeah, so do you, but... does it look like, you know..."

Regina's brow furrowed. "Hmm?"

"Like I had sex?" Emma whispered.

Regina pursed her lips to stop a chuckle from escaping. She walked over to Emma and tried to tame the blonde's hair.

"Crap, your father is going to kill me."


"He's going to forbid me from ever seeing you again."


"Then your mother is going to kill me..."

"Emma!" She said, cupping the blonde's cheeks. "Stop freaking out." She places a chaste kiss on Emma's lips. "Okay?"

"Okay." Emma stole a few more kisses from the brunette's lips before heading to the bathroom.

She came out, her hair pulled into a high ponytail. "You should probably put on a shirt, babe." She said when she saw that Regina was still in only her bra and shorts.

"Right!" Regina rummaged around in her dresser and took out the shirt that Emma got her in New York.

Emma looked at the brunette. How did she get so lucky? Regina was beyond beautiful, inside and out.

"What?" Regina asked when she looked up to find the blonde staring at her.

"I love you."

"I love you, too." Regina replied easily.

Their gazes were soft and full of love as they looked into each other's eyes.

Just then Regina's mother appeared in the doorway.

"Hi, girls. I'm taking you out for lunch, be down in 10."

"Okay, mother."

"Okay, Mrs Mills."

They replied in unison, both sporting a blush.

Cora raised a brow before making her exit, again.

"See? She didn't notice anything. We're still Emma and Regina. Nothing has changed."

"Except everything has... in a good, no, great way!"


[A few months later]

Regina was sitting in the library, finishing an assignment when Emma burst through the doors.

Regina groaned. They had just been allowed into the library again, and judging by the look on Emma's face, they were going to get banned, again.


Despite the trouble she knew Emma was going to get her in, Regina couldn't help the smile that formed on her lips when Emma's eyes caught hers.

"I love you." Slipped past her lips.

"Yeah, yeah, I love you, too."

The brunette raised a brow, causing Emma to lean over and place a kiss on her lips. "I love you." Emma repeated, lips curling up into a sheepish smile.

"To what do I owe this interruption?" She teased the blonde.

Emma nervously bit down on her lip, causing Regina to sit up straighter.

"What happened?"

Emma took an envelope out of her bag and handed it to Regina.

"Is this...?"

"It arrived this morning."

"Did you open it?"

"No, of course not. I want you to open it, like I did yours."

Regina nodded and looked at the letter in her hands. She started to open it, Emma looking on nervously.

"Whatever happens, it's okay." Regina reassured her.

Emma took a deep breath as Regina took the letter out. The brunette unfolded the paper and began to read over it.

She kept reading over the first two sentences.

Emma could not decipher anything as Regina's facial expressions remained stoic.


Regina stood up and looked at Emma. She walked around the desk and pulled the blonde in for a hug.

Emma's mood dropped and immediate tears spilled over her cheeks. She held onto Regina tightly.

"I hope those are tears of joy." Regina said nonchalantly. "Because you got in! We're going to the same college!" She yelled, forgetting where they were.

Emma pulled away. "Wh- I... what? I got in?"

Regina nodded.

Emma grabbed the letter and read the first line. "Oh my god, I got in!"

She started doing a victory dance, Regina joining her.

The librarian rolled her eyes at the adorable two. She was so tired of Emma Swan and Regina Mills always interrupting the peace and quiet in her library. A small smile played on her lips as she watched the two dance. She allowed them their moment, shaking her head and then continued with what she was doing.


[3 Years Later: College]

Emma was lying on her bed, looking at the ceiling when a red head came bursting through her door.

"Damn it, Zelena! You almost gave me a heart attack."

Zelena grinned and jumped onto Emma's bed.

"Sorry." She said, placing a kiss on Emma's cheek. "You should be used to it by now, though. We've been room mates for how long now?"

"Too long." Emma said, wiping the kiss from her cheek.

Zelena chuckled and straddled the blonde's hips, placing repeated kisses on the blonde's cheeks.

"Ew! Zelena, get off! I swear to the Gods above I'm gonna..."

"You're gonna what?" Zelena asked, holding Emma's hands above her head.

"Zelena stop assaulting my girlfriend." Came a voice from the doorway.

Zelena ended up at the same college as Emma and Regina, and when Emma introduced her to the brunette, Zelena was immediately enthralled by Emma's girlfriend. The two became close very quickly. Emma always found it so fascinating to watch the two interact, because Zelena was so loud and outgoing, where Regina was much more refined.

"Gina!" Zelena screamed and jumped off the bed to hug the brunette.

Emma was happy for a second until see saw the tired look on her girlfriend's face.

"Zelena what's up with you today?" Regina asked the redhead. "You're stranger than usual."

"I'm so happy." She said, still hugging Regina.

"And we're suffering because of your happiness?" Regina mumbled.

"Yes, because I love you guys and you're my best friends."

Emma shook her head in amusement.

Regina finally hugged Zelena back, "We love you, too." She said, squeezing the redhead tightly. "Weirdo."

"I heard that."

"I wanted you to."

Zelena let go of Regina and looked between the blonde and brunette.

"I asked Marian out on a date... and she said yes. And oh my God, I have to get ready." She walked into the bathroom, mumbling about how Marian was gonna cancel on her.

Regina let out a loud sigh and looked at Emma.

Emma scooted back onto her bed and opened her arms.

Regina gave the blonde a tired smile and kicked her shoes off before crawling into Emma's embrace.

"Hmm. I love this."

"Long day?"

Regina has been cast as the lead in their college's annual end of year musical. This was where students got their big break, and Regina worked hard to impress whoever would be attending.

"The longest." Regina said, trying to snuggle closer to the blonde. "Did you and Neal finish your project? He's been stealing all my Emma time."

Neal was in one of Emma's classes and the two hit it off immediately, becoming close friends within a span of a day.

Emma chuckled, nuzzling her nose into Regina's hair. "Yeah, all done. I'm all yours." Emma held her tighter. "I love you."

"I love you too." Regina whispered and leaned up to place a kiss on Emma's lips.

Emma kissed her back immediately, always welcoming Regina's lips to her own.

After the lingering kiss, Regina snaked her arms around Emma's torso, holding her tightly as she drifted off to sleep.


[3 years after college]

Emma was standing on a podium, along with the rest of the USA female hockey team. They had just won the Olympic gold medal for their country and was singing their anthem with pride.

A red head sneaked up behind Emma and gave her a lingering kiss on her cheek.

"You did it, babes!"

Emma turned around and hugged the figure. "No, we did it."

"I LOVE YOU BITCHES!" Ruby yelled, joining in on the hug, Mulan soon after.

When the photos were taken, Emma wasted no time getting out of her tracksuit and into her skinny jeans and white tank top, along with her red leather jacket.

She took the scrunchy out of her hair and looked into the mirror. "That would have to do."

Mulan burst into the locker. "Come on! We're going to be late." She dragged Emma out of the room and they both ran towards the parking lot.

The red head, Zelena, already had the car in idle and wasted no time when Emma and Mulan got in.

"Where's Ruby?"

"Right here!" Ruby yelled and got in the back with Mulan. "Let's move!"

They drove through the streets of London, the radio playing loudly.

*Next up, a 25 year old who has taken the music world by storm. Nominated for three grammys, Regina Mills with ..."

"OH MY GOD!" Ruby yelled excitedly.

"Shhh!" Emma hushed, a proud smile on her face as they listened to Regina's new song on the radio.

They stopped at the O2 Arena and rushed out of the car. Screaming girls could be heard everywhere and Emma's heart began beating faster.

"Oh my God! It's Emma Swan! Can I get a picture?"

"Sure." Emma said with a smile, taking the phone from the girl to take the selfie herself.

"Thank you so much. Oh my god, I can't believe I just met half of my OTP and I'm seeing the other half in less than 15 minutes. Is this real life?"

Emma chuckled, quite used to this reaction. Her girlfriend was a famous singer, adored by many across the world and she was a famous hockey player.

"Speaking of half of your OTP, I have to go meet the other half before she goes on stage."

"You two are so cute together. Meant to be. I love you both." She screamed after Emma, causing the blonde to turn around and give a subtle wave.

The girl looked at the photo on her phone with a goofy grin on her face, Emma shook her head and continued making her way backstage.

She bursts into Regina's dressing room, out of breath.

Regina saw blonde curls in the mirror and was out of her seat in a millisecond. "You made it!" She said, hugging the blonde tightly.

"Of course I did. I said I would, didn't I?"

Regina nodded, tears forming in her eyes.

"Hey, no crying." Emma said, caressing the brunette's cheeks.

"It's happy tears, Em." Regina said with a playful eye roll. "You won a gold medal."

"I did." Emma said, voice filled with pride.

"I'm about to do my first concert."

"You are." Emma said, sounding even more proud. "And you're nominated for three grammys."

"I am. Oh my god. I don't think that has sunk in yet."

Emma chuckled and kissed the brunette's cheek. "And you have me."

Regina's eyes softened as she pulled Emma in for a passionate kiss. "And I have you." She whispered against Emma's lips.

"Five minutes!" Someone said as they knocked on the door.

"Wish me luck."

"Good luck."

A few more kisses were shared before they walked out of the room, hands intertwined as Emma walked Regina to the stage to do her first concert.


[ a few years later ]

Emma chuckled as she read her twitter feed.

"Regina, when was the last time you were on twitter?"

"I don't know, love, it's kind of difficult with this little one." She said, looking at the little bundle of joy lying in her arms.

Emma looked at their son, Henry David, love shining in her eyes. "I am so lucky." She said, kissing the boy's cheek and then Regina's.

Regina smiled and took hold of Emma's hand, momentarily distracted by the ring on Emma's finger. "So am I, Miss Swan-Mills."

She watched as Henry began to wake up, giggling up at his blonde mom.

"Come here." Emma said, tugging on Regina's hand.

Regina sat up and rested her head on Emma's shoulder. "He's adorable."

"He is. One would say he was made up of our genes only. My eyes, nose, chin, and your dark hair, facial structure and probably your smarts too."

They had asked their good friend, Neal, for his help and he was more than happy to do this for them.

Henry was spoiled rotten by both sets of his grandparents, all their friends, and his moms. He was so loved.

Emma picked him up and asked Regina to grab her phone on the dresser.

"Let's give the fans what they want. They trended, Swan-Mills Family Selfie."

Regina chuckled. She loved her fans dearly, they were like family to her.

"Turn him around, dear." She instructed Emma.

Emma did as she was told and smiled when Regina's hand circled her waist, the brunette's head resting on her shoulder.

When the picture was taken, both agreed to post it.

{Hello, loves! Long time no tweet. To make up for it, here's a #SwanMillsFamilySelfie 3 Love you all! Mwah!} Regina tweeted.

"You just killed both our fandoms."

"They'll thank us later."

"I love you."

"I love you, too."

"Kiss me?"

"With pleasure." Regina said and leaned in to place a loving kiss on waiting lips. The lingering kiss was interrupted by Henry giggling.

"You're not even a teen yet and you're already interrupting the good stuff."

"Emma Swan!"

"Mills. Emma Swan-Mills." She said with a cheeky grin.

And they all lived happily ever after.
