I know everyone’s been fangirling over Emma thinking about Regina’s ‘Immaculate Legs’ … but I thought the way all of this was described was interesting also…
Emma looked over. A woman—dark-haired, beautiful,sharply dressed— was rushing from the house, toward the car. Her eyes were locked on Henry.
“Are you hurt? Where have you been?”
“I’m ﬁne, I’m ﬁne,” Henry complained. “I found my mom.”
The woman froze when she heard this, and looked at Emma for the ﬁrst time. Emma felt coldness in her heart.
“You … are his birth mother?” she said eventually. Emma nodded, trying to look surprised and innocent.
“Ap-parently,” she said. “Nice to meet you.”
Emma couldn’t tell what to make of the look the woman gave her next. Eventually she said, “Well. I see. And would you like to come inside for some apple cider?”
