I Thought It Was The End
Emma feels neglected in her relationship with Regina, up until the events of one terrible night.
Emma was sat in the back of Granny's with a medium sized glass of whiskey, she had to try to not make a habit of this. Being at home of an evening, apart from sleeping, didn't seem as for-filling as it used to be. Regina didn't seem interested in Emma at all lately, Emma had sought out her comfort and affection many a nights gone by but to no avail.
Taking a gulp of her whiskey before hissing as it burned her throat, Emma reflected on the events of last night. Emma had got home, and found a note informing her of the fact that a meal was in the oven and that Regina had gone to bed.
"Why didn't she wait up for me? It wouldn't of killed her to at least of waited to see me return, then she could of gone upstairs.. I'd of waited her.. Didn't she want to see me?" Emma thought to herself.
Emma had been getting in most nights to find Regina either too busy to talk or already in bed, asleep and refusing Emma's affection. This was like a kick to the stomach, Emma NEEDED that time, no matter how long it lasted, she needed that time of an evening to tell Regina how much she cared for her and vice versa.
Was their relationship not good enough for Regina? Is this her way of pushing Emma away because Regina couldn't be bothered to end it herself?
"I can't remember the last time that she told me she loved me…" Emma thought to herself, her head falling into her hands as she burst into tears.
Ruby immediately noticed Emma's break-down and rushed over to comfort her.
"Emma! What's wrong?"
"She doesn't love me.." Emma stammered, shrugging Ruby off, getting up and heading out of the café
Emma got into her car, unsure of whether she was angry or upset, or both. Emma shook her head vigorously.
"Oh god…" Emma sobbed. Is it possible that Regina may not of even loved her to start with?
Awful and completely untruthful thoughts bombarded Emma's aching head as she started the car aggressively. Emma just needed to clear her head of all this paranoia, or was this a long over-due wake up call?
"Emma, you need to stop this." she told herself, before driving off.
Further down town, Regina was sat on her porch, where she had been sat for well over an hour, cradling herself due to the chill in the air.
"Emma, where are you?" her thoughts spoken absent-mindedly out-loud.
Regina frowned, her eyes glistening as she stood up. Not having the strength or patience to wait anymore, Regina walked down her drive, intent on going out to look for Emma.
Regina hoped more than anything that Emma was okay, that she was safe. Regina bit her lip, simultaneously with Emma biting her clenched fist whilst driving, heading in Regina's direction…
"Archie, have you seen Emma?" Regina asked, quickly walking past Dr Hopper.
"No Madame Mayor, I'm afraid I haven't! Sorry!" Archie called back, shrugging.
Regina got filled with more worry with each step she took.
Emma picked up speed, apparently driving was the only thing she was capable of doing tonight, she almost didn't want to go back to Regina's at all.
Regina walked down the street, she frowned, she could see her breath, it was getting ever so late and cold. Where on earth had Emma got to…
Then Regina stepped out onto the road, and Emma drove round the corner at full speed. It only took a split second to realize what had just happened and Emma's heart shattered.
She'd hit Regina.
Storybrooke was calm, silent..
Everything seemed motionless with the exception of Emma, the only thing Emma could hear was the deafening sound of her own heart pounding against her chest as she charged out of her car, almost feeling sick at the sight in front of her, of what she had just done.
Emma's sobs began to hurt her throat as she knelt down beside Regina, not wanting to move her in-case the impact had broken any bones.
"Regina!" Emma yelled, yearning for a response, hoping for help.
Regina was lay still, on her front, her head turned on one side, clothes slightly torn in some places, her right arm clearly broken from where Regina landed on it. Emma's hand slapped itself over her own mouth as she sobbed uncontrollably, her tears stinging her eyes as her other hand hovered over Regina's head as if it were about to stroke it.
Archie, having heard Emma yell, had made his way over to them. Taken back at the sight of Regina he phoned for an ambulance immediately.
He turned around to find Emma, lay on the cold, wet floor beside Regina. On her side, just crying, staring at Regina. He attempted to comfort Emma but she was inconsolable and paid no attention to him at all. All Archie discovered was a few words he managed to decipher in-between Emma's heartfelt sobs.
"Please..don't leave me."
Archie heard the ambulance was close and flagged it down, the paramedics unloaded and were at Regina's side within a few moments. Emma had sat up, her arms wrapped round her knees as she began to rock back and forth slightly.
"Sheriff Swan! What happened?" One of the paramedics asked her clearly and quickly, but had no reply what so ever off of her.
"I believe that Sheriff Swan must have accidentally drove into the Mayor…" Archie said nervously.
"Arghhh!" Emma screamed out her anguish up at the sky, loud enough for the whole of Storybrooke to hear, making Archie himself swell with emotion at the sight of her despair.
The paramedics examined Regina, diagnosing her with a broken arm, two broken ribs, internal bleeding and a skull fracture..
Emma's sobbing hadn't eased after hearing the paramedics discussion and plan of action.
"We've got to get her in, now! Quickly!"
Emma watched, sore eyed as they carried Regina away, into the van in a stretcher.
"Sheriff! Are you coming?"
Emma clenched her fists, trying to concentrate.
"Yes…" she said quietly, following them into the back of the ambulance, sitting in-between two a couple of the paramedics, each and everyone of them watching over Mayor Mills' unconscious body.
"She can't die… she can't, I can't live without her." Emma sobbed quietly, before one of the paramedics clutched Emma's hand comfortingly.
"We'll do our best for her Sheriff…" She said, offering a reassuring smile.
The paramedics looked at each-other, worried.. If they did not get the Mayor treated quickly, her internal bleeding could cause a cardiac arrest, and even death.
"We'll do our best…"
Regina's cold body began to tremble, she had come to. Regina's eyes opened and she recognized the amount of pain she was in, it was numbing.
"She's awake! Mayor Mills! Can you hear me? We are taking you to the hospital, you've suffered major injuries, we will treat you immediately. Sheriff Swan is with us! With you, do not panic."
Emma struggled to feel relief, but the fact that Regina had woken up must be a good sign right? Regina would be okay wouldn't she?
"Em.. Emma?" Regina mumbled quietly, not fully aware of what she was doing.
"Madame Mayor?" the paramedic questioned..
But Regina fell unconscious once more.
"She's fallen unconscious again. Are we almost there?" The paramedics spoke amongst themselves and Emma fought against the tears that she had managed to recently stop.
Emma's mind was swimming in the thoughts of all of her regrets. She couldn't believe that only fifteen minutes ago she was contemplating the thought of leaving Regina. Then all of a sudden, the paramedics all gathered around Regina manically.
"What's happening?!" Emma called, terror rising through her body.
"She's gone into Cardiac Arrest! Sheriff, please step back."
Emma watched in horror as one of the paramedics reached for a pair of defibrillators, they tore Regina's blouse open and placed them on her chest. Simultaneously Emma held her hand over her own heart, as she heard the machine charging..
Was this the end?
