Author's Note: Guys I am so excited. This chapter and the next are the ones I have been waiting to write this entire time. Thank you to Zerousy, Marcie Gore, Guest, jellyfishes, and Taki-nee-chan for the reviews and alerts. Now, without further ado, to the action!

"Hey, I am going to Granny's, do you guys want anything?" I asked.
"No. We are fine." Snow yelled back from the kitchen.
"Ok. See you later." I said as the door swung closed. As I was about to enter Granny's, someone grabbed my arm.
"Emma." He said.
"Jefferson what are you doing? That is my arm you are holding captive." I said.
"My apologies, but it seemed the only way to get your attention." He said apologetically.
"You have it." I said.
"Why have you been avoiding me?" He asked in a voice that assured me that he had a pretty good guess but wanted to see what I was going to say.
"What are you talking about Jefferson?" I asked in the most condescending tone I could muster.
"Even your son noticed." He replied unfazed.
"As you have probably noticed, I have a very perceptive son." I said.
"Emma, don't change the subject. Answer the question." He said r=frustrated.
"I have work to do. I have not been avoiding you." I said, trying to be convincing.
"You don't fool me." He said keeping eye contact, trying to find the truth inside the lie.
"Well then Mr. Genius, since you are convinced, why?" I asked.
"Because you're scared." He replied.
"What if I am? I have every right to be. You kidnapped my mother, kidnapped and drugged me, and forced me make you a hat. You could be psychotic or completely mad or both so so what if I am scared? I should be." I challenged.
"That isn't what I mean Emma. You know now that I am not psychotic. I was desperate. You know that. You aren't scared of me because of what I have done, you are scared of something I have yet to do." He said.
"Jefferson don't." I said, my voice small.
"Don't what?" He challenged in a gentle voice.
"Don't love me." I said.
"I am afraid it is too late for that." He said and then he kissed me. I was shocked, but the emotion did not last long because I felt the world start to spin. I parted from him to discover it wasn't just my emotions. The world was actually spinning. And the emotion I felt now was fear. We must have had the same thought because we simultaneously screamed our respective child's name. Sneaky kids were hiding behind one of the buildings. I grabbed Henry and we huddled together to face whatever madness this was.
