“What the hell?” you asked as an arrow flew pasted your head, incredibly close.
“My lady, are you alright?” You spun around and saw one of the newcomers to Storybrooke walking towards you, bow in hand.
“I’m fine,” you grumbled. “And I’m not your lady.” The handsome man chuckled heartily.
“No, you’re right, you’re not,” he said with a grin. “I only meant it out of respect, I’m sorry if I offended you.” You sighed and drew your attention to his bow.
“Why did you shoot an arrow at me?” You asked incredulously.
“I was trying to shoot it at you. Well I was, but I didn’t think it was you. I am out looking for the witch Zelena, and I thought you may be her.”
“Well I don’t have green skin,” you stated bitterly.
“No, I can see that,” he said taking a moment to look at you.
“What’s your name?” You asked after an awkward silence.
“Robin Hood, my lady.” You groaned at his use of “my lady” again. “Sorry.”
“Wait, Robin Hood? Like the famous thief?” You asked with a laugh.
“The one and only,” he said with a mocking now, causing you to giggle.
“Well, as much as I enjoy talking to my attempted murderer, I do actually have a place to be,” you said as you turned. Robin grabbed your arm to turn you back around.
“My lady,” he said, smiling at your eye roll. “I am truly sorry about earlier.”
“Right,” you said with a nod. “Well thank you.” At that, you walked away from the handsome thief and got into your car.
“Who was that?” Ruby asked as you climbed in next to her.
“Nobody,” you said as you drove off.
“I hate this job,” you said to Ruby as you walked past her, delivering the waffles to your customer. You had started working at Granny’s diner about two months ago, because they needed more help.
“Well, don’t hate it yet,” Ruby said, motioning towards the door. Robin was walking through the door with a few of his friends. “I’ll let you get that one,” she said with a smirk, escaping back into the kitchen.
“Welcome to Granny’s, what can I get for you?” you asked as you walked up.
“My lady,” he said with a grin when he saw you.
“I have a name, you know,” you said with an equal grin.
“You never told me so I’m forced to call you, my lady.”
“Y/N. What can I get for you?”
“Well, Y/N,” he said, emphasizing your name. “I will take a coffee, please.” You took the rest of their orders, and escaped into the kitchen.
“I hope that’s his number, and not just his order,” Ruby said as you walked in. Granny laughed and took the slip or paper from you.
“It’s just his order,” she said as she began cooking.
“If you don’t get his number,” she said with a smirk. “I will.” You rolled your eyes.
“I- I can get his number. If I wanted to, which I don’t,” you stumbled. Ruby and Granny laughed.
“Okay, fine, I’ll do it right now,” you said exiting the kitchen.
“Robin,” you said as you walked up. “Can we talk?” The thief smiled and stood up, following you.
“Before you say anything, there’s something I’d like to ask you, my lady. Would you like to go on a date with me?”
“Wait, what? You’re asking me out?” you asked dumbfounded. Robin looked a little bit hurt. “Sorry, but I’d, I’d love to,” you said. The handsome thief smiled and returned into the diner. Ruby walked out just as he came inside and smiled at you.
“So?” she asked with a raise of her eyebrow.
“So,” you said with a grin. “We’re going on a date,” you said walking back into the diner.
“It’s about time, you haven’t had a date in months.”
