Will Leave You in the Morning (But Find You in the Day)

She barely registers what happens after she falls to the ground. The faint sounds of the witch being taken out by Regina and the amulet Belle found in Gold’s shop. “Killian?” She calls into the air. She knows he can’t answer her, but she waits and waits until she can feel all their eyes on her and she screams. “Killian!”
He falls the ground with a thud, his head spinning. It takes him a moment to register where he is. Tall trees and a large field, The Enchanted Forest. His mind tells him he’s home and he’s off to find his ship.
