This is my first but hopefully not last fanfic. Swan queen all the way.
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters or Once Upon A Time because if I did swan queen would be canon.
Rating: Like I said this is my first so I'm rating safely as I'm not sure how this works. The fact that they're both women and attracted to each other makes it what?
Summary: AU where magic doesn't exist, the curse does not exist and Regina is married to Daniel.
Three years. That's how long Regina had been married to Daniel. The marriage wasn't passionate or perfect but it was enough, until a frustrating blonde showed up in town.
"Henry? Henry? Where are you, stupid dog?"
"Regina, I told you to close the gate. This wouldn't have happened if you had listened to me!"
"Don't blame me for this, Daniel; we both know it was your turn to watch him."
"I don't have time for this Regina. I need to go feed the horses. It was your idea to get a senseless dog so he's your responsibility."
With that Daniel leaves Regina to breakdown alone. She couldn't have a conversation with him anymore, without it turning into a fight. She blamed it on stress but that's not what it was. Something was always missing in their relationship and it was only taking its toll now. Marrying him was a business decision. Nobody wanted an unmarried woman as mayor in this town. With him, there was never a spark or any magic.
Regina loved her dog as if it was her own son. The little Cocker Spaniel never failed to cheer her up. Convincing Daniel to let a dog in the house wasn't easy but after withholding certain privileges he warmed up to the idea. Regina had no other choice but to call the sheriff to send out a search party. Just as she was about to press the 'call' button, there was a knock at the door. Even though the woman was extremely irritated by now, she still put her best fake smile on and opened the door.
"I'm sorry I'm a little bus….."
Regina's mouth stopped working. In front of her stood the most beautiful woman she had ever seen. Large, green eyes stared into her chocolate brown ones.
"This dog had your address on the collar and hi!"
The blonde haired goddess smiles the biggest smile possible at Regina. She can't help but smile back. Regina finally regained her speaking ability but her words come out slightly husky.
"That's Henry. Thank you so much for bringing him back. I was so worried! Where did you find him?"
"I just got here and this little cutie ran out in front of my car. You wouldn't by any chance know of any place to stay around here? I tried a place called Ganny's but it was surprisingly full.
Regina wants to say she doesn't. She wants to completely forget about the guest bedroom right next door to hers.
"You could stay here."
It comes out before she can stop it. How could a woman possibly make her feel that way?
"Are you sure you wouldn't mind? It would only be until I find a place for myself."
That's when she remembered Daniel. He was an unwelcome intrusion in Regina's mind but he didn't stay long because the woman opposite her pulled Regina into a warm embrace.
"Thank you so much for this. I'm Emma by the way. Emma Swan."
The hug continued and Regina didn't want it to end.
"I'm Regina. Regina Mills."
So there's going to be more and I really want you to tell me what you think because I could really suck and not know about it so thanks for reading. The chapters should be longer in future.
