Under the Apple Tree--ch. 1
Ship: Outlaw Queen
Synopsis: After being hit by the Olympian Crystal, Robin was transported to Seattle, unable to return to Storybrooke or any magical. When it was clear he had no way to return to his family, Robin finally decided to bury his broken heart in work–founding a landscaping business, Sherwood Forestry. Fifteen years later, Robin receives an order from the last person he ever thought he’d see again, making him realize that hope never truly dies.
Under the Apple Tree
“What’s on the agenda for today, Mary?” Robin Locksley asked his secretary as he stepped into the small office of his landscaping business, Sherwood Forestry.
Mary flipped the page of her agenda book, looked down and nodded. “You’ve got a delivery for 8 am. A lady in Enchanted Estates ordered an apple tree to be planted on her front lawn.”
“Enchanted Estates?” Robin asked, idly shuffling through a stack of bills on his desk. “I don’t believe I’ve heard of the place.”
“It’s one of those big, ritzy subdivisions in Misthaven.”
Robin sucked in a quick breath. “Beg pardon? What is the name of the city?”
“Misthaven, Washington” Mary answered. “Tiny little town way up north. It’s a hop, skip and a jump to the Canadian border. I passed through there once on my way to…”
The woman talked on, but Robin didn’t tuned out. Misthaven. The word dredged up memories that were never far from the surface.
