GATHERING ALL THE PIECES.
POST 1X16. What if Dr. Hopper hadn't woken David up? Who will he turn to for answers? An Emma/Henry/David story.
A/N: LOVED 1X16 SO MUCH I JUST HAD TO WRITE SOMETHING IN HONOR OF JOSH DALAS'S SINGLE TEARS! TWO IN ONE EPISODE! WOW! WHY WOULDN'T YOU BELIVE MARY MARGARET , DAVID? WHY?
I DON'T OWN THE AWESOMENESS THAT IS ONCE UPON A TIME... THERE WOULD BE LIKE NON STOPPING EPISODES IF I DID...
OKAY… ENOUGH DRAMA… DOWN TO BUSSINESS.
I was looking at Mary Margaret. Only it wasn't her. She had longer hair and her glare was cold as ice. Suddenly I found myself staring at me. Only it wasn't really me. It was someone else. I wasn't yelling at Mary Margaret. "Snow!"
"David?" I felt Dr. Hopper call my name "David? Are you okay?"
"What happened?" I asked gasping for air.
"I woke you up, you were too deep into hypnosis" He answered worriedly "What did you see? David…I can help you"
What was it that had just happened to me? It seemed I was looking upon another life. A past life. Then I remembered that when I had first woken up I met Emma and Henry at my welcome home party and… I stood up and hurried to get my coat "David, where are you going? I can help you"
"Sorry Dr. Hopper" I said at the door "I don't think you can"
OUAT- OUAT - OUAT
I hurried where I had my truck parked. My breathing was fast and my head was spinning "I would rather die than let you fill your heart with darkness" I heard myself whisper. I knew where I had to go.
"Mr. Nolan" I had found Henry sitting on a stool at Granny's. I took a seat by his side. "Are you okay? You don't look well"
"I don't know" I said running my hand trough my hair "I don't know"
"You do believe Ms. Blanchard, don't you?" Henry asked me. He practically begged me. So I nodded. "Good, because out of all the people in town she wants you to believe the most in her"
"Why?" I asked more to myself than the boy.
"Because" Henry said slowly "Just because… well I don't think I should tell you"
"Tell me what?" I frowned at him "Please tell me because I don't know what to do"
"Okay" Maybe he had just said it because he felt sorry for me. Maybe not. Nevertheless he grabbed the bag next to him and took out a book. "This book… Ms. Blanchard gave it to me a while back. That is how I found Emma"
"Okay" I said simply.
"And that's how Ms. Blanchard woke you up" Henry breathed slowly "By reading to you when you were in a coma, then she kissed you and you came back"
"What are you saying?" I asked confused. Henry sighed and opened his book, searching for a specific page. He leaned closer to me and pointed to a picture.
"This is you" The photo seemed familiar somehow "Do you recognize it?" He asked when I stared for a while.
"Me?" I asked. This man. He was the man from my vision "I am…"
"Prince Charming" Henry finished for me… silence "Mr. Nolan?"
"Wait…" I said wrapping my head around it "As in… Snow White's?"
"Yep" Henry said simply "That's why.."
"I saw Mary Margaret" I said interrupting him quickly "In the woods… she had long hair"
"You mean you remember?" Henry asked me eagerly.
"Remember what exactly?" I inquired. Henry rolled his eyes exasperated. I seemed to notice Emma did the same thing now and again.
"That you and Ms. Blanchard" He leaned closer to me "You are Prince Charming and Snow White"
"What?" This sounded so crazy. Clearly he had been reading too many fantasy stories "That's impossible"
"Is it?" Henry answered back "Explain then how is it that Ms. Blanchard has long hair" I shrugged "Cause Snow White has"
"Snow" I repeated "Then when I was begging her not to kill her… I didn't mean Kathryn"
"You meant the Evil Queen" Henry said "You were trying to help Snow remember you"
"Henry?" I asked after a moment "Is the Evil Queen…" I was afraid to say what I wanted.
"My Mom" Henry said sadly taking a sip of his cocoa "Everyone here is fairytale character"
"Really?" my head was spinning again but I wanted to know more. "And who are you supposed to be"
"Not in the book" Henry said with a sad smile "But Emma is"
"Emma?" I asked confused but I thought you said everyone in town and she just moved here"
"Exactly" Henry said "The Queen casted a spell so that there wouldn't be no more happy endings. Time was frozen for 28 years until Emma came. She is the savior"
"You have to have faith. She will be the savior" I hear myself saying in my head.
"She is" I said "Who is she again?"
"Don't know if you can handle it" Henry said sadly.
"Try me" I leaned closer to the picture on the book. Henry sighed.
"The daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming"
