"A child is the greatest gift."
"Mommy! Mommy, save me! Help me mommy!"
Katherine Beckett woke up breathing heavily. That little girl seemed so much like her, yet so young, naive, and innocent.
Castle stiffened beside her.
"Nothing. Just a bad dream, that's all."
That's what she loved most about him. That he was always just there for her no matter what. After all, they have been through just so much together. And now that they're engaged-
Castle interrupted her thoughts. "A bad dream huh. You haven't been having too many of them recently, have you?"
"No, I haven't. I'm fine. It was really nothing."
Kate stared at the miniature pink line of the white stick. She stuttered.
She gasped and thought back to that little girl that invaded and took over her dream a few days ago. So this was going to come true! But I don't want to bring a child into this drastic world. I only just got Senator Bracken sent to jail a week ago. How am I supposed to tell Rick?
Meanwhile, in Storybrooke:
"Gold, please. I can't face Killian without a baby."
"You do have a baby Miss Swan."
"But she was born still. Please. Just find a child, doesn't have to really look like me. Just make
sure she looks similar to me or Killian."
"Fine. Since I owe you a favor, I'll have a baby girl back in one day. She may not have magic though. " Gold promised.
"That's okay. Killian doesn't have magic. What are you going to tell my husband and family? That I'm still in labor?"
"Yes. That I will do. Whale will be also told and I'll make sure he doesn't breathe a word of this to anyone. Your desperate desire to give your family what they want and expect from you is going to cost another family's happiness. Just a warning dearie."
"It'll be fine. You'll make sure they don't remember...right?"
"Everyone but the mother. The mother deserves to remember at least what happens. She may eventually find you someday."
Gold walks out of the room, leaving a broken Emma behind to deal with her loss. Emma hopes that Henry won't be suspicious or skeptical now that he's 15.
"Martha, nice to see you again dearie."
"You! What do you want this time?"
"Oh, don't worry about your son. I want your grandchild this time."
"You shall leave Alexis alone. Take me instead."
"Sorry, but I don't think so. I'll be back to ask again tonight dearie."
Everyone was sitting down at the dinner table while Rick and Kate were explaining the case they solved today. Martha remember the conversation in the early morning and spoke out.
"There is a man I should warn you about. I owe him a debt and he's coming tonight to take away Alexis."
"What's his name mother. We can just have Kate here arrest him."
"Oh, it doesn't work that way. You can't just arrest him. He'll just appear somewhere again. His name is Rumpelstiltskin."
A knock came on the door.
