How to be a parent, a guide by the saviour and her pirate

By Yesiamanowl

Children / Fantasy

Cursed

Charming

“I don’t care” Emma said as she stormed out of the loft; the revelation of her parents weighing heavily on her mind.

“It might be best if you two stay here. I’ll talk to Emma” Killian said to Snow

“But…”

“Let him go Snow” I said, with more calm in his voice than I was actually feeling. I held Snow close as we watched Hook go after Emma. Even though he had not said it, I could see that he was afraid for Emma; but that wasn’t all that was in his eyes. It almost looked like…. Hurt, or even betrayal- for what I could only imagine why. Perhaps it was because we had broken Emma’s trust, or perhaps it was something that we would never know. All I knew was that it had felt that I had lost everything all in one fell swoop. Emma. My only friend. Even Snow was trying to get out of my arms. My heart filled with guilt as I let go of Snow and went towards the kitchenette to get a drink- something strong to deal with what we had just told Emma.

I could understand her anger- I just prayed that this hadn’t pushed her away from us forever.

“Well, well, well. The Charming’s have finally lost everything, although; not everyone one I want is here” Maleficent had formed in the middle of the loft, looking around, but mainly keeping Snow within her eyesight. With a twirl of her hand Regina, Henry and baby Neal were all dropped into the room, their eyes confused and shocked as they saw who had brought them all here. Henry tried to move towards the door but the dragon witch froze everyone in position, stopping us from moving around. “Now that you are all here- I can get all of you out of my way. I would say enjoy yourselves, but when I’m finished with you, you won’t even remember who anyone else here”

With a click of her fingers we were all released from our paralysis, but instantly I felt as if I was being compressed, and the entire world was falling on me, the weight pushing me down- before it all went dark.

I left the loft in a state of shock and disappointment. I had thought that Dave and the Lady Snow were better than my own parents; but instead they had kept something this big from Emma just as mine had kept the secret of my origin from me. On reaching the dark street, I allowed the slight chill of the wind to calm my thoughts.

I knew the place that Emma would have wandered to, but I decided to gather a couple of items from Granny’s first to take back to the Jolly Rodger to allow Emma some time to her thoughts. Granny gave me a hot cocoa with cinnamon to give to Emma, almost sensing that Emma would need something to comfort her. The old wolf gave me a friendly smile as I went back into the night air, telling me to tell Emma that if she wanted a room they would happily let her have one. I smiled in my thanks to her and swiftly found Emma on the docks; just where I had thought she would be.

Her words were quiet as we talked, and I delivered her Granny’s drink, only then did a ghost of a smile form on her beautiful lips. I had led her onto the Jolly Rodger when her phone went off and Henry’s face filled the screen.

“Hey Henry what’s up?”

All that could be heard down the line was babbling, and what sounded to be the quiet voices of… small children?

“What is going on?” Emma asked, barely glancing at me as I grabbed a blanket for her out of one of the trunks that filled my ship.

“I don’t know, but I suggest we go back to the loft and see what’s happened love” I spoke softly as I reached the end of my suggestion, but Emma looked disgusted, and slightly confused.

“Just a gut feeling. If you want I can check there and see if anything is up and if something has happened I’ll give you a call”

The walk towards the loft seemed longer than usual; but even I could sense the magic as I got closer to that fateful door. Upon opening the door, I was greeted with a very peculiar sight.

“Emma? You need to get over here. Right. Now.”

Oru Manna: Within this tale is a cast of characters with intensely unique voices and personas; each one radiating their own desires so clearly, you would think they were all written by different people.

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending.
