Keep in mind: this first part of the fic takes place under the curse of shattered sight. Which means that Snowing and Emma all say some things that they don't nessecarily mean or wouldn't have said in such a blunt way. This is by no means a bashing Fic. That also means, please be easy on all of them. As Snow likes to say "We were cursed!" And all will be worked out in due time.
It wasn't supposed to effect Emma. That was the point in all of it. Ingrid cast the curse so the entire town would kill each other and she'd have her "sisters" by her side.
No magic is perfect, though. It all comes with a price and Emma was paying for it.
The minute the curse hit, her eyes cracked and suddenly, her body ran cold. She looked over at Elsa, who could see what was going on.
"Take the baby," she said, her voice nearly soulless.
Elsa quickly took Neal from her. "Emma…"
"Of course she's giving him to her," David quipped from behind the cell. "She can't handle being a part of this family."
"I'm the one that can't handle family, hm?" Emma's hands fell at her hips. "Am I not the one that's been pushing me out of this damn family since it started?"
Snow rolled her eyes. "Oh here we go…"
"No. You two have wanted a baby since this damn curse broke and now you have one. Why am I even still here?"
"You wanna runaway? Like you always do?" Snow retorted. "It's what you do best, isn't it? Nothing we do is good enough for you!"
"And what have you done for me, Mary Margaret?" Emma taunted, moving closer to the cell. "Stuffed me in a wardrobe? Give me some lame advice about opening up my heart? Where exactly did any of that get me?"
"Just like your father. You want a happy ending to appear in your lap, you can't work for it."
David glared at his wife and leaned up against the wall.
"Sorry I'm not skipping around all the time pretending that everything is fine."
"I don't do that," Snow said, breaking her glance to look at him.
"Oh yes, you do. The curse breaks and all you can care about is our lives going back to normal. You didn't even want to try to go back home."
"Because of Emma! You're the one that wanted to leave her!"
Emma's eyes widened. "What?"
"Oh, did he never tell you? He wanted to go back to the Enchanted Forest and said you'd be fine here by yourself if you didn't want to come!"
David stormed to the bars, grabbing hold of it. "At least I mourned our daughter when we were forced to go back there!"
"I did mourn her! Neal was a happy accident and you know that!"
"There was no need to mourn me, I was alive and well, but I had to take Henry away," Emma interrupted, stepping closer to them. "Because you two couldn't be bothered to stop Regina before the curse hit!"
"You don't know anything about that."
"Oh, but I do. I read the book, how you let Regina go. If you hadn't done that, if you had just killed her, then we wouldn't be in this mess right now! But maybe this is what you wanted all along."
Emma slipped her hands around the bars and looked menacingly into her mother's eyes.
"You found out your precious daughter was the savior, would have enough power to break a curse. And maybe it was easy to send your magic wielding daughter away before she could turn into your worst nightmare."
"That is not true!" Snow thundered. "We tried, we failed. And don't act like you're any better at parenting than us!"
"Do not bring Henry into this!"
"You did the right thing by giving him up, but then you repeatedly tried to take him from Regina. You still planned on leaving, even after she proved herself. You were going to go to New York and we'd never see you again! It's like no matter what I do, you're always pushing me away!"
"Can you blame me? You had that baby to replace me and we all know it!"
"Emma, stop!" Elsa rushed over to her and put a hand on her shoulder. "Your parents are good people. They made mistakes, you have, but they love you. This is what Ingrid wants, she wants to rip you apart from them!"
"If they loved me so much, I would've never met Ingrid and we wouldn't be here."
She looked down at the baby in her friend's arms and then back at her parents.
"You know what? I'm done." She threw her hands up in the air. "You two can have your precious life with your precious son. I don't want to be a part of it anymore."
Before Elsa could stop her, Emma stormed out of the station, slamming the door shut behind her.
