prompt ~ Emma discovers that Regina is actually a huge dinosaur nerd (inspired by the framed picture in her mansion) and Regina gets embarrassed but Emma thinks it's adorable
Thanks for the prompt :)
Emma spends the first few days of living in the mansion simply exploring. Since she lives here now, she figured she best know the place inside and out. It’s been incredible to see all the things she never took to notice - the things that make up her home…their home.
She smiles as she wanders into a dining room near the back of the house frowning in confusion at a framed picture of a dinosaur. It seems strange and out of place given that most of the photos in the mansion are family ones or ones of animals.
“Are you exploring again?” Regina asks appearing in the doorway, “Have you settled on a favourite room yet?”
Emma grins, “I think we both know my favourite place in this mansion is in your arms.”
“You’re so cheesy,” Regina tells her.
“I am…you inspire cheesiness,” Emma replies walking over and kissing her lovingly, “So…dinosaurs? Random?”
Regina blushes slightly, “Henry went through a dinosaur phase?”
“When he was seven, he told me…but that’s not his.”
“How do you know?”
“Because if it was his he’d have it in his room with the rest of his nerdy posters - this is yours.”
“How do you know?”
“You’ve framed it and put it on display in your dining room which means you like it…you’re a dinosaur nerd.”
Regina’s blush darkens as she ducks her head away, “I…I simply find them fascinating. We never had anything like that in the Enchanted Forest and when I found out about them I wanted to know everything…why are you smiling at me like that?”
Emma beams wrapping her arms around her as she replies, “Because I love learning these things about you…my dinosaur nerd. Hey…does this mean I can put my Jurassic Park movie poster up?”
