Fed up with people lying to him, Henry takes his chance on a shooting star, wishing that everyone has to tell the truth. It soon becomes apparent that this may not be such a good thing after all, especially for a certain Mayor and Sheriff couple and their secret romance.
Only a one shot at the moment, but I'll add on to it if anyone wants me to. :) Comments appreciated, though please be nice as this is my first fanfiction story.

P.S. this takes place a while ago, somewhere around the second half of Season 3.
I wish that everyone would just tell the truth.
Henry was fed up with everyone always lying. His brunette mother had told so many lies he didn't know where to start. Even Emma, the Saviour, the one who was supposed to be good, had lied to him, making up some grand story about his father. They said they were protecting him, but it didn't feel that way. Instead he felt betrayed. Even when the lies they constantly told weren't to do with him, he saw them, and they just made him angry.
And so, when he saw the star crease across the sky, he made his wish.
I wish that everyone would just tell the truth.
With that he turned away from the window and climbed back into bed and settled down, a smile spread across his face. Tomorrow really was going to be a brand new day.
Regina walked into the diner and saw Emma sitting in her usual spot at the counter. As she made to join her she noticed the blonde's eyes following Ruby as she regaled her with some story or another. Despite the waitress' obvious excitement in the tale Emma didn't really seem to be listening.
"Careful Miss Swan, wouldn't want you to do yourself an injury," she said to the blonde as she sat down beside her.
"Hmm?" Emma asked turning to look at the mayor.
"You looked deep in thought." Emma just gave a non-committal hum.
"What were you thinking about?"
"You." Emma, Regina and Ruby all raised their eyebrows at the unexpected confession. Apparently Emma wasn't done, however. "Also that Ruby has quite a nice arse."
Emma shoved her hand over her mouth as if trying to shove the words back in, and she saw hurt and anger fly across Regina's face before it was quickly covered by the stoic Mayor persona. Ruby just stood there slack jawed in shock.
"Is that so Miss Swan?" Regina asked in a clipped tone. They had been together for just over two months now, and had decided to keep it a secret, but this was going a bit too far.
"Yes, although it's not nearly as fine as yours." Emma brought her other hand up to further cover her treacherous mouth.
"Why thank you dear," Regina said, a smirk tugging at her lips though she tried not to let it through.
Just then Snow stormed into the diner, closely followed by Charming.
"Snow, please," Charming was begging.
"No." She spun around on her heels and looked him straight in the eyes. "I like my hats, and you," she paused to point at him, "are going to shut up until you either agree with me or have found a severely good reason for me to forgive you."
The diner was silent as Snow manoeuvred her pregnant frame over to the counter and settled in on the other side of her daughter. All four women remained silent still reeling after their respective shocks.
The noise in the diner gradually started again. When it was back to normal Snow let out a huff and turned to the other women beside her.
"Sorry about that," she murmured, a blush still tinting her cheeks.
Ruby seemed to have recovered enough and set about making Snow a hot chocolate. Placing it in front of the pixie-haired woman she looked as if she was about to ask about the rather loud entrance but Snow interrupted her.
"So, what's new?" she asked.
It was Regina who answered, a smirk on her face and her words still slightly acidic. "Well we have just discovered that your daughter quite likes Miss Lucas' behind."
"Regina!" Emma exclaimed and then winced as she heard her mother gasp beside her. Ruby again looked like she would prefer to be anywhere else but in the middle of this conversation.
"What?" Regina replied, trying to act as innocently as possible. "You just said you did."
"Yes, but I don't need you telling my mother that. Besides you would also recall that I did then say that I preferred yours."
This time a splutter followed by a series of coughs were heard from the direction of Snow as she choked on her mouthful of hot chocolate.
Shit, Emma thought.
Snow gradually got her breathing under control as a still silent Charming rubbed circles on her back, then turned her attention on Emma whose face was already quite red.
"Care to explain that statement Emma?"
"Um, not really but for some reason I don't feel like I have a choice in the matter." She sighed before continuing. "I do prefer Regina's arse. In fact I'm pretty sure I prefer all of Regina, and I don't mean compared to just Ruby. I mean compared to everyone. She's clever and loving. She's beautiful inside and out. She is sassy, sarcastic and easily the most sexy woman alive. I mean even with clothes on she is stunning but without, I mean, wow."
Once again the diner was plunged into silence. Every eye was turned on a now extremely red Emma who was sitting there with a look of shock and horror plastered on her face. Yes she had meant every word she had said but she sure as hell hadn't meant to say it to her mother.
"Please tell me I did not just say all of that out loud," she whispered to no-one in particular, but the stunned, and in some cases (Snow) horrified, expressions told her otherwise.
"I think I'm going to just go," she managed to squeak out before all but running out the door.
