They live for quiet mornings like this. Normal mornings. 

Winter blanketing the ground in a fluffy powder. The boys laughing, building snowmen before the day has barely had a chance to greet the sky. Robin gulping away dredges of sleep with caffeine. Regina bouncing the baby on her knee in the living room as they wait. 

Bacon sizzles in a skillet, butter melts over pancakes, and something that feels quite like joy surrounds them. With no villains to fight, witches to banish, or work to be done, they can breathe.

They live for quiet mornings like this. Normal mornings. 

And in 15 minutes or so, when Snow and David come walking through the door with Neal and Emma, well… it’ll be just like every Sunday.

They’ll gather around the table, and their family will be together. Just as they should be, as they were meant to be.
