Summary | Emma decides to dress up like Regina for a Halloween party at The Rabbit Hole. No big deal, it’s not like Regina’s going to be there…right? Emma’s costume choice sets their interactions on a new path.
“I do love you, you know. I do. More than anything. And I’m not saying that because I am possibly super high and got hit with a hammer.”
“Whatever, see only you would correct me when I’m trying to tell you I love you. I do, sweetheart, I truly do. I had plans to tell you in a much more romantic setting than this,” she noted, gesturing around the room, “but, fuck it, I don’t care. I love you.”
“And only you would combine base profanity with a declaration of love.”
“See, we’re perfect for one another. Get up here.” Emma patted the side of the narrow bed, scooting over to entice her partner. Regina approached it warily, gently easing in, arms at her sides. The minute the brunette was situated, Emma burrowed into her lover’s side.
“This can’t be very comfortable for you.”
“I don’t care,” she hummed. “You smell good. You’re warm and soft. And snuggly.”
Regina scoffed. “You’re obviously on powerful medication.”
Emma tightened her grip across her lover’s midsection and began stroking her hand up and down her side. “I love you, Regina Mills. I would take a beating for you every day if that meant we could be together.”
“That’s just it, I don’t want you to have to defend yourself daily because of me. I can’t bear the thought of you hurt, especially on my account.”
