Alone, Until I Get Home (15/?)
Summary: In Boston, Henry Swan’s six-year-old brother Ian finds a book titled “Once Upon a Time” hidden beneath the seat in their mom’s old yellow bug. As soon as Henry touches it, he remembers.
Season 3 Canon Divergence-Emma finds out she’s pregnant a few weeks after she and Henry leave Storybrooke with new memories and new lives. Nearly seven years later, another Dark Curse puts her family in danger, and Emma must return to Storybrooke to help them.
Who’s powerful enough to cast the Dark Curse? And how the hell is she going to tell Hook they have a son together?

At the Charmings’ suggestion, and with Emma’s encouragement, Killian takes the boys out—both to afford Emma an opportunity to rest, and to provide Henry and Ian with a distraction. The early evening air is cool, and, for the first time since he watched Emma disappear behind a curtain of falling rocks, Killian feels like he can breathe again.
Emma’s bruised and weary but otherwise uninjured, and she’s not shutting him out anymore—she still hasn’t told him what’s been bothering her, but she will, and that’s enough to lift the crushing weight from his shoulders.
Killian retrieves a few items from his rooms at the inn and stuffs them into a satchel, then, after a brief dinner at Granny’s, during which Henry and Ian debate the pros and cons of something called ‘ketchup’ versus something else called 'barbecue sauce’, the three of them head to the docks.
