Regina's pleading expression left Emma speechless. She hadn't ever seen the woman who always had everything perfectly together start to crack. Emma simply nodded at Regina in response.
Henry was taken out of the mine safely much to the relief of both Emma and Regina as well as the others who were also there with them.
"I'm so glad you're alright," Regina hugged the boy. "Let's go," Regina said to him and took his hand. She turned her head and threw a muttered "Thank you, Ms. Swan," over her shoulder at the blond as she began to lead Henry away back to their large house.
Emma stood there and without even realizing it right away, she was calling after the brunette. "Wait..!"
Regina paused and gestured for Sheriff Graham. "Make sure he gets home," she said to him sternly before letting go of Henry's hand. She turned to face Emma who was still by the mouth of the mine. "What is it, Ms. Swan?" Regina's question rang out more like a demand than inquiry with a hint of annoyance as was usual for Emma to receive from the mayor.
Emma hesitated, not entirely sure as to how to reply. In fact, she didn't really know why she had Regina stop for her, but did her best to keep her cool. With a few confident strides, Regina was in front of her steadily glaring.
"I asked you, what did you want, Ms. Swan?" Regina repeated with exasperation. "Unlike you, time is not a luxury I have to waste on nonsense like this," she reprimanded Emma.
Regina's snippy attitude always got under Emma's skin. The blond intended to counter with some sort of witty comment back at Regina, but her body reacted faster than she was able to spit any words out. Emma's hand shot out and grabbed Regina's shoulder pulling her closer until the gap between them had closed. The kiss was heated with a blend of lust and anger for each other. Their teeth knocked together and their tongues wrestled in each other's mouths. The connection was electric and it surged through their bodies, spurring them on. One of Regina's hands pulled at Emma's golden, curly locks and the other at the collar of her jacket, while Emma had one arm looped around Regina's neck and the other around her waist with no intention of letting the brunette go any time soon.
