It isn't long, but big things are inside. I still don't own the characters, but maybe Santa will give them to me :)
"Yeah," Wendy replied.
"Wow. I can't believe you kept that to yourself all these years," Snow said coming around to hug Wendy, "It has been hard enough here, being someone else and then remembering who we all are, but even after the curse you couldn't really be yourself."
"Well I don't want to think about what Gold would do to me if he knew about my history with Killian, so you can't tell anyone, not even Charming."
"Of course not, I would never…" Snow was cut off by her ringing phone. "Hello?"
"It's me. You need to get down here as fast as you can. I was bringing Hook to Granny's and Gold showed up. Now they are going at it, and I need help." Emma said so fast her mother could hardly understand her.
"I'm on my way," Snow told her and hung up. "All I really got was Hook, Gold, and Granny's which is a recipe for disaster in any combination, and given your recent revelations you should probably grab your coat as well," she relayed to Wendy.
"Let's go," Wendy said without hesitation. She was halfway out the door before Snow could grab her keys.
Snow blew past stop signs and nearly hit another car before turning the corner to Granny's. Wendy didn't even wait for the vehicle to come to a complete stop before jumping out to run to Killian's aid. The two men were fighting in the middle of the street, and Emma and the spectators lined the sidewalks, no one wanting to get too close.
Emma ran up to Wendy, "I thought we were going to get through today without at hitch, but then he just appeared out of nowhere." Wendy and the others watched helplessly as Gold drew up all the magic he had within him, launching a curse that hit Killian in the chest. He sank to his knees, clearly in pain.
"Gold, stop!" Regina said running into the fray.
"Oh there is no stopping now. Only his true love can save him now," Gold said with an evil chuckle, "And we all know that isn't going to happen."
"You're still a sniveling coward, using magic to stop me." Killian choked out. Wendy's heart broke to see him wasting away.
"That may be, but I still win," Gold turned to walk away.
"No you don't," Wendy called, and he turned back just in time to see her on her knees in front of the pirate. He rolled his eyes, "What do you think you can do for him Gwendolyn Davies? He is a dead man in just a few more minutes."
Tears were streaming down her cheeks as she took Killian's face in her hands. "Nothing, but Wendy Darling can save him," she said with a smile as she leaned in to kiss him.
Everyone felt it, the rush of the Captain's curse being lifted, and Gold was filled with rage. As Wendy helped Killian to his feet Gold rushed forward and plunged his hand into Killian's chest, pulling out his heart.
"NO!" Wendy screamed as Gold squeezed the heart and Killian once again crumpled to the ground. She was on her knees again holding his body, looking into his blue eyes, searching for some way to save him.
"I love you," he said in a hoarse whisper, and she couldn't contain the heart wrenching sob that tore from her throat. The bystanders looked on the sad scene, confused by the realization that the Gwen they knew was really the Wendy they had heard about, and hurting for her, the young woman they all knew to be such a kind, loving, generous person. The heart crumbled in Gold's hand, and he walked away, no one daring to go after him.
"No. No, no, no, no. Regina, you can fix this, I know you can," Wendy said with force.
"I'm sorry, but I can't," Regina replied, tears in her eyes.
"Take my heart!" Wendy demanded. When Regina looked around at those watching Wendy screamed, "TAKE MY HEART NOW!"
Regina reluctantly kneeled by her side, mutters of disapproval coming from the crowd. "Wendy, what are you doing," Snow pleaded. Regina reached in and pulled out Wendy's heart, she placed it into Wendy's hands, got up, and walked back to Emma and Snow, who were holding hands, crying for the friend they were about to lose.
To the shock of the entire crowd, Wendy sighed and, instead of taking her own life as they all thought, she gently pressed her beating heart into the lifeless body of Killian Jones. Everyone waited with bated breath, when suddenly he gasped and bolted upright. With a cry of relief, Wendy threw her arms around his neck and kissed him with every ounce of the emotion that was coursing through her.
"What…how…" Killian fumbled for the words.
"You always used to tell me you were a heartless pirate, and my response was always the same. Now it is true. You are not heartless because you have my heart."
