Regina trailed behind the rest of the group as they walked towards her castle, trying to find a way to stop the Wicked Witch of the West. She was lost in her own thoughts, thinking about Henry once again, until a thud from behind her snapped her out of it. Arming herself with a fireball in the palm of her hand, she spun round, cloak whipping behind her dramatically as she turned to face her follower. However, the sight before her was far from what she had been expecting. Limbs akimbo, face down on the muddy ground in front of her lay Roland who had accidentally tripped and stumbled, fallen, landing in a heap on the ground.

"Oh Roland! My dear are you alright?" She asked, concern laced in her tone as she picked him up from his fall, not giving her now ruined clothing a thought as she held him against her chest. He sniffled innocently, tiny tears dribbling down his cheeks.

"You're not hurt are you?" She asked, before being met with his deep brown eyes looking up at her in pain.

"Surely a brave hero like you isn't hurt?" she tucked a finger under his chin, so he looked at her as she smiled widely at him at an attempt to make him feel better, despite the mud that was smeared all over his chubby little cheeks. It worked. He let out a completely childish giggle, showing off his dimples as he began to laugh uncontrollably as she began to tickle him.

"If you can wriggle this much Roland you cannot be hurt at all," she began to laugh even harder with him squirming in her arms as she tickled his neck and under his armpits, "You're just a very muddy boy!"

"-'Gina! Stop! That t-tickles!"

A shout could be heard as somebody ran towards the laughing pair who were sat on the dirty forest floor.

"Roland! Roland my boy, what happened?"

"Somebody took a nasty fall, but he's alright now aren't you Roland?" The Queen replied, looking at the boy in her arms fondly.

"When I looked back to see if you were free to talk to milady, both you and Roland had vanished. As you can see I got rather worried."

"And for no need, he's fine. And…" She waved her hand, a bar of chocolate appearing in her hand almost instantly, "For being such a brave soul, here is your reward." She ended, proceeding to offer the boy the food.

"What is it 'Gina?"

"Why it's chocolate… have you never had it before?" she asked astounded. Roland shook his head, his curly muddy locks flopping as he did so.

"Well then, you're in for a treat." she smiled again.

He nibbled cautiously at first before trying to stuff as much of the chocolate in his mouth as he could muster, he cried out in delight, his cheeks full, "It tastes good! Thanks miss 'Gina!"

"Now Roland, you must address Regina as 'your majesty' you know that." Robin scolded lightly, talking again for the first time in a little while as he had been captivated in what seemed to be a bond between his son and the 'Evil Queen'. Far from evil he thought inwardly.

"N-no… no I don't mind… Regina is fine… for Roland." She teased, grinning up at Robin who scowled jokingly.

"Who'd have thought it, my boy, befriending her majesty before myself. Though I'll let everybody who asks know that you bribed him with this 'chocolate' substance…"

"I did nothing of the sort!" She laughed whole heartedly. What on earth is happening? Are we actually acting as though we are friends? She pondered, completely astounded.
