Trials and tribulations of Princess Emma Swan
DISCLAIMER: I don't own anything to do with once upon a time. Wish I did because if I did season 2 would be starting Sunday.
SUMMARY: Emma's past, present and future. The story starts off from the hospital, just as the pink cloud can be seen.
"Henry what's that"
Emma, henry and the rest of the hospital just stood there as the pink cloud enveloped them. It only lasted a moment or two before the sky outside the window was again clear. The air in the hospital however now seemed to be filled with dread.
"Princess Emma. Princess Emma" someone was calling but no one answered. Emma seemed paralyzed by fear, with the last few hours she had seen august turn wooden, killed a dragon with her father's sword and seen her seen die, to just come back to life with something as simple as a mothers kiss, and now a pink cloud which all she could think about was Gold and true love. But surely true love could harm anyone.
"Princess Emma, Princess Emma"
Henry realized that doc was calling Emma, his mum the savior. So he nudged her to let her know she was wanted.
"I am sorry doctor I wasn't paying attention" Emma said very softly she still wasn't sure how she was going to deal with today.
"That's alright Princess Emma but its just doc. You have grown into a very beautiful woman, as beautiful as your mother. Mind you the first time I saw you was the day I delivered you, I had never seen anyone more proud then how your parent were that day. And I bet they will have even more pride for you now." "But that is getting away from what I need to tell you. You must find them together you can stop whatever is about to happen."
"I can't leave henry doc I won't leave my son" Emma soundly sound very fierce. She had lost him once today and was being told she had to leave him to go find Mary-Margret and David. Not happening now Regina was outed so to speak she was the only one who could protect him. Against whatever the hell gold was doing.
"no princess I mean for you to take henry with you, the sleeping course is broken, and after James broke the one on snow the only side effect was at night, when she first started to fall into a deep sleep she would scream in terror because her body was sleeping but her conscious mind had not yet shut off it was nightmares but physically she was fine as I believe henry is also." "You both need to find them. We all need you. The royal family will be triumphant. You broke the queen's curse I believe you can do anything and with all your family with you, you would be unstoppable."
"Ok Kidd the... sorry doc said we can go. So let's find you something to wear and get outta here."
Emma didn't have to say it twice henry was already looking for clothes and muttering about how cool it was to have to curse broken and he had grandparents and then he was babbling about why no one went home and this new adventure which as he was dressing turned and informed his mum.
"Since operation cobra is completed which is way to go good guys we need a new one for this new curse. I was thinking we should call it…." "Hey Kidd can we take about it when we get home I would really like to get outta here. OK?"
Emma Interrupted but henry didn't mind he could see she was nervous so he kept quiet and finished dressing. He wasn't too impressed with the clothes the hospital had given him since they cut off his own clothes but he wanted to go to.
The drive from the hospital was silent; Emma drove to the police station. Guns may not kill dragons but if swords and arrows could then a bullet could sure as hell kill a fairytale character. That was her first stop.
BACK AT THE HOSPITAL.
Snow and James (charming) ran into the hospital snow shouting for Emma. She was scared. Her baby had broken the curse, she had been living with her for months and most importantly her baby girl could suffer a worse fate than she did. She knew Emma would live but Emma may have to watch her son, henry… her grandson die.
Charming was trying so hard to reassure snow but it was not working. Hearing her voice doc came running, to them
"It's alright snow, princess Emma has taken henry home. I believe she was going to try and find you and James, and home is always the best place to start." Doc tried to be reassuring but snow was already backing away and leaving the hospital.
"Thanks doc, you said taken henry home. So I guess that means my grandson is fine. Thank you. We will have to all get together to discuss what's our next move is. Would it be possible for you to get everyone and have them meet us at granny's please?"
"Of course, consider it done."
With the confirmation that it was going to happen James followed his wife, not only out of the hospital but he was following his wife to HIS daughter, a daughter he had only held once and kissed once in 28 years.
James and snow arrived at snow apartment but Emma was nowhere to be seen, her bright yellow bug wasn't outside. No matter how many times snow called Emma just didn't appear. Snow was beside herself with worry. Doc had said she was bringing henry home surely she wouldn't have taken him to Regina's. They should be here.
"Where is she James, it's been 28 years and she should be here now"
"snow she will be here she probably just had to do something first, as you said it's been 28 years, she will not be used to having to let people know where she is, and what she is doing. She will be here snow she lives here; she has lived her with you for months. A few more moments of waiting is nothing to the 28 years we have had to wait. Please snow she found is and she will be here."
James was trying his best to comfort his wife but even he was starting to worry; now she should have been here long before they got here but she was. Snow on the other hand who is usually a calm person by nature was also worrying him. He had never seen her so scared in all their time together. The problem snow was facing was she knew Emma, and Emma liked to run. She had seen the items in the dining room earlier today and they were still there but, but snow feared she had just left. Taken henry someplace safe and gone. They had had an argument before all this happened, so maybe, maybe Emma didn't think she had a home to go to anymore.
Just then snow heard the door open.
"Emma" the softly spoken word slipped out before she could even think about turning towards the noise. It wasn't Emma though. It was grumpy he knew they were to meet at granny's but he had to make sure that snow was ok. He was snows personal guardian dwarf.
THE POLICE STATION
Emma had gathered all the guns and ammo and anything else she could think of the grab and stuff in a big bag, whilst henry had been made to sit in the chair and not move. Even though doc had said he was fine she wasn't so sure. All she knew was he was alive and she had him with her. She had saved his life broke the dammed curse, and realized that she was indeed the daughter of snow white and her prince charming. She helped henry back to the car much to his annoyance at her treating him like he was ill. But she just ignored him and did it anyway. As she put her bag of goodies in the car. She really thought about everything for the first time. Snow white was Mary-Margret and she was her mother. The same woman who she had truly felt a connection with, for the first time in a very long time. A woman she had left without saying goodbye to, a woman who she had been planning on leaving again until henry and the hospital. Then that brought henry die because of Regina, because she had wanted ammo out of the way, but was it really because she didn't want to lose henry or because she didn't want to have the curse broken. But the biggest thing she had to think about was she had broken the curse, she had done what she was supposed to. But by continuing stay was she putting henry in harm's way. Her job was done the savior was supposed to break the curse and she had.
So the question to herself was almost as hard as the one she had made just over 10 years ago. Should she stay and help with this new magical thingy, and maybe build a friendship with both of the people she should have known as MUM and DAD, or should she do the unthinkable leave the two people she had been looking for, for as long as she can remember and keep her son safe and the hell away from Regina and whatever gold, no not gold rumplestiltskin was planning
Emma started the bug. Left out of town right the way home.
