(RSnQ EF AU) Snow heard rumors of an assassination plot against the Queen. There was a major festival where the best horse breeders in the kingdom and from surrounding kingdoms came to show off their stock and the Evil Queen was considered to own some of the finest horses in the realm and could be counted on to be there. Snow was in the crowd as Regina's party entered the town it was being held, looking terrifying and resplendent on her big black horse. (Part 1)
Out of nowhere came the arrow and the arrow which the Queen casually
caught out of the air as if she was picking an apple off a still branch.
There was an angry gritted teeth smile as she threw the arrow down
contemptuously. She ordered her knights to seal the gates of the walled
town and if the population didn’t produce the archer who had fired the
arrow before the next morning she would make them all pay. It hadn’t
been Snow’s arrow… but who knew what Regina’s price would be. (Part
Snow had come to the festival just in case these rumors of the assassination were true. And maybe because she wanted to see Regina, regal as ever in her horse, or maybe not.
Suddenly she knows before she sees it and it’s too late. She heard the arrow when it was shot, but then Regina is catching it and well, apparently the rumors were true. And shit, Regina is closing this town and if anyone recognizes her, she’s dead. No, she didn’t shoot the arrow but who would believe her? She’s probably a dead woman now. She tries and hide, she doesn’t want to die, but she’s not scared. Snow has known for a long time now that her death could come anyday with Regina’s knights following her everywhere, so if this is the end, at least her last view was Regina on a black horse.
