Henry and I slowly walk back to his house as we try to figure out a plan.
“You can’t tell them about Peter.” I say to Henry.
“I know. I’ll make sure my mom will do it for you.”
“He won’t have magic, not here in Storybrooke.”
“That will help. They won’t see him as a threat, at least not as much.” Henry says.
We walk into his house to find Regina and Mary Margaret waiting for us.
“There you two are!” Regina exclaims as we walk in.
“Sorry. I went to make sure Nellie was okay. We had no cell reception.” Henry explained.
“It’s okay. Do you think I can talk to you for a minute alone?” Regina asks Henry. I nod to say I’m okay and Henry follows his mom into another room.
“Are you alright Nellie?” Mary Margaret asks.
“Yes I’m fine. I’m sorry about running off earlier.”
“You can trust us here. I won’t judge you for who you love.”
“I can’t tell you.” i mutter.
“But we could help you if we knew more.”
“I know.It’s just too risky. You would never listen.”
Regina and Henry walk back in and Henry nods to me.
“You’re going to do it?” I ask Regina.
“Yes, although Henry still won’t tell me much.”
“What do you need? When can it be done?”
“I’m going to go get ingredients I’ll need for the spell, but I should be able to do it in about one hour.”
I watch Regina set everything up on the table.
“When the spell is complete, where will I find him?” I ask Regina.
“He should show up here. Unless he died here in town. Then he’ll show up where he died” she answers as she finishes preparation.
I pull Henry to the side.
“When she starts the spell, you need to leave. Make sure no one hurts him.”
“I’ll make sure he’ll be safe with me.” Henry assures me.
“Okay Nellie, I’m ready.” Regina says.
“I’m going to need your necklace now. I won’t know who he is until the spell is complete. Henry trusts you so I’m doing this for him.” I hand her my necklace.
Regina starts chanting and Henry silently slips out of the house. As soon as its done I know I’m going to have to run. I shift my weight on my balls of my feet.
“It’s done. He should be here.” Regina opens her eyes and looks around. Confused to why he isn’t in her home, Regina turns to me.
“I’m sorry.” I say before I sprint out of the house.
It felt like everything went into slow motion. I could hear some towns people shouting and I knew they’ve seen Peter. I will my legs to go faster and pray I don’t trip and fall. I hear my pulse pounding in my ears. I run the corner to see David, Robin, and Hook trying to get by Henry who is protecting Peter.
I skid to a halt. “Don’t shoot!” I yell at David.
I start running again. Robin grabs me trying to tell me Peter is dangerous. Henry is yelling at Hook and David to wait. I break out of Robin’s grip and run for Peter.
My heart leaps with joy as I collide into Peter’s arms. I wrap my arms around his neck. I can feel tears running down my face.
I pull away slightly to look at Peter. He wipes the tears from my face. I don’t hesitate, I kiss him.
