Pre-SQ: Emma takes off for a weekend, just to hike or camp in the woods, and doesn't tell Regina because she doesn't think she'd notice, let alone care. Come Monday morning, she comes into the station to find a frantic Regina who screams "do you have any idea how worried I was? I missed you, you idiot!"
Thanks for the prompt :)
Emma smiles serenely as she wanders into the station. Her weekend in the woods was exactly what she needed, just her hiking in nature. She doesn’t plan to run away anytime soon but every now and then she likes to clear her head and with Henry at Regina’s and her parents busy with Neal, it seemed like the perfect weekend.
She hums to herself as she turns the corner only for her tranquility to come to a crashing halt.
“Where the hell have you been?! Do you have any idea how worried I was?!”
Emma blinks taken aback for a second as she observes Regina. Her normally perfect hair is falling wildly across her face and her cheeks are reddened as if she’s been either crying or shouting. All in all she looks thoroughly flustered. “I went camping in the woods,” Emma explains, “No biggie Regina, I just wanted a break.”
“It is a ‘biggie’ Emma, I had no idea where you were! You didn’t show up for movie night or lasagne, you didn’t answer any of my messages or come over for breakfast yesterday, I’ve been worried sick.”
Emma blushes as she realises that she probably should have mentioned it but to be honest she didn’t think anyone would notice let alone care. She shrugs, “I didn’t think anyone would worry…”
Regina sighs. It was only with Emma’s sudden absence that she had realised how important the Sheriff had become to her. She steps closer to Emma as she smiles and admits, “I worried and I missed you.”

Okay but she looks like she’s wearing nothing under that jacket in this pic, and it’s giving me all sorts of thoughts about Emma coming home to find Regina waiting for her, naked except for Emma’s red leather jacket….
“I’m sorry dear I think you’re wrong. I’m Roni. What’s your name beautiful?”
“I’m- uh… I’m Emma”
“Em-ma… That sounds good”
“Damnit woman! Stop purring. This isn’t help me to focus.”
“The only thing you need to focus is the sound of your name falling from my lips”
if i had a dollar for every gay ship that i’ve shipped and/or has broken my heart repetitively i would have enough money to bribe the writers of those tv show/books/movies to make the non-canon ships canon
