Summary - in a whole new world we’re the evil queen never existed, all of the happy endings remained as is. Regina finds herself starting a whole new chapter that will change the course of her life forever. [ inspired by the mid winter season finally of once upon a time.]
One afternoon as Regina was walking in the forest with her sister Zelena picking barriers. She gathered a bunch of raspberry in her basket.
Zelena walked over to Regina, groaned “ are we done yet. ”
She tells her “ we will be done as soon as I fill my basket. ”
Zelena whined “ I can’t wait that long. ”
Regina sighed, “ she said then why don’t you make yourself useful and gather up some herbs. ”
Zelena rolled her eyes. Picked up her basket, walked a little bit further, plopped on the ground and very carefully plucked the herbs from the dirt, to make sure that she didn’t cut any of her fingers on thistle.
Regina was enjoying the fresh air, the cool breeze across her face. The tiny little hairs on the back of her neck rose up. She got onto her feet, yells “ whoever you are I highly recommend you come out of hiding, so we can resolve this little issue peacefully. ”
Robin walked around the tree, placed his hands in the air, “ he said: apologies Milady I thought you were a wild turkey.”
She blushes, replied “ well I’m glad we got all of that cleared up. ”
Zelena stomps through the forest, told Regina “ so while I’m on my hands, knees plucking herbs, you’re over here flirting with a common thief. ”
Robin interrupts the frantic red-head, tells her “ I’m not a thief anymore. ”
Zelena responds “ once a thief, always a thief. ”
Regina answers “ Zelena, you don’t have to be so judgmental. He doesn’t look so bad.”
Zelena glances at the thief, back to Regina; claims “ snap out of it. A man like him is no good, besides I’m just trying to look after my baby sis that’s all. ”
Regina smiles at Zelena, admitted “ thank you but I think that I have this situation under control. ”
Robin kept his eye on the short haired lady the entire time. He wanted to make sure that she was going to be alright.
He asked the shorter woman with jet black hair, “is everything alright?. ”
Regina turned around, told him “ I’m fine.”
Robin nodded his head, tells her “ I didn’t catch your name. ”
She responds “ I’m Regina by the way. ”
Robin went to shake Regina hand as his lion tattoo caught her eyes, - - -
Tinkerbell said, “ look there he is. ”
She pressed her forehead against the window, whispers “ that’s him. ”
Tinkerbell explained to Regina, “ pixie dust doesn’t lie.”
I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.
