SUMMARY: The story continues in the diner where Emma and Hook have a discussion. Later at her office, Regina has a visitor.
Emma reached a finger out and invitingly brushed it against the side of Regina’s hand causing the woman to gasp at the touch and Robin’s eyes to narrow.
“Listen, you,” Robin seethed. “I’ve had just about enough.”
The blonde rolled her eyes, while he blustered on, and mimicked Robin’s hysteria to Henry with her hand opening and closing to the movement of the man’s jabbering mouth and again Henry tried to stifle a laugh.
To get her attention, the former thief, propped his fists on the table, like some territorial gorilla, and leaned forward in an intimidating manner. “I’m not afraid of you, Swan. I have dealt with all manner of villainy,” this earned him a reproachful, outraged look from Regina, “so I know how to deal with the likes of you.”
Henry knew he was only thirteen but even he could see the stupidity in Robin’s bravado. He saw Regina shaking her head in disapproval and rolling her eyes at his ill-advised, brainless actions. He expected Emma to be upset and angry, but she looked up at him like she wanted to laugh in his face. If Robin thought he could frighten Emma, even in the least bit, he had another think coming.
Emma leaned closer and with an evil chuckle said, “Don’t bet on it.”
