    Summary

    She lifts an arm, slides it around Emma’s shoulders, tangles her fingers gently in Emma’s blonde curls. She tugs, working through the knots that have accumulated throughout the day. It doesn’t hurt, not like it does when Emma pulls the brush through her hair in the morning, quick and decisive and a little bit ferocious through her own discomfort. It’s quiet for a few minutes, and when she’s ready, when she’s sure her stupid voice won’t break, Emma jokes, “Got any more realm encompassing curses hanging around?”

    Summary

    “Thank you,” she murmurs, her lips full and her eyes maybe a little bit watery. She turns to go before Emma can respond, but, with her back to Emma, says into the darkness, “I don’t make wishes.” This is an offering, and Emma places the words down inside her ribcage, to be saved, always. “Maybe…maybe don’t forget. Today,” she clarifies. “Maybe don’t forget today, and next year, you’re invited. For dinner.”

    Summary

    “Besides,” Regina says, looking from her son, 400 miles away, to his other mother sitting beside her on the couch in the study, “I’ve already gotten us a room.”

    “You have?”

    “Oh, good!” Henry looks relieved. “I mean, the email about graduation stuff said finding rooms can be tricky. So, that’s good, Mom.” He beams at them both.

    “Wait. A room? As in, singular?” Emma questions.

    “Well,” Regina frowns, “yes. It was really all they had left, and I wanted to stay at the Charles since it’s right there in Cambridge and close to campus.”

    “That’s great, mom!” Henry repeats, but Emma is still staring at the woman sitting next to her.

    “So, like,” she licks her lips. “We’re going to be … roommates?”

    Regina glares at her, but then sighs when Henry laughs from the screen. “Yes, Miss Swan,” she agrees finally. “Roommates. For two nights only. Do you think you can handle that?”

    Summary

    They’re three glasses of cider in, a fire crackling merrily, “He was a pumpkin? How original of you, Madame Mayor.” Emma’s laughing, her heart warm and content in this place she tries not to think of as home, despite the fact that she eats more meals here than in her own small apartment.
