Underground. She was underground somewhere.
She tried to breathe slowly. In. Out. In. And Out. In…
Underground… trapped…underground…walls…no air…dark…. so dark…
In..out…in…out…breathe…just breathe…don’t think…breathe…
It was no use.
Emma gasped and pushed away from the wall. She rolled over, face first, into the ground. Coughed on the dirt and tried to get back up.
She couldn’t see a thing in the dark. Something moved next to her. A stir in the air.
“Regina?” she asked.
Emma breathed in slowly.
“Are you okay?”
“I don’t know what’s gonna happen to us,” Emma whispered. Her cheek was itching. She rubbed on her shoulder.
Mary-Margaret inched closer. She kept moving until she was right next to Emma. Emma sensed the older woman trembling next to her.
“My sister is out there you know,” she said out loud, reassuring the woman. And herself.
“She’ll find us,” Emma told her, steadying her voice, “she’s a cop and a really good one. She’ll find us.””
