"My relationship is none of your business Kathryn." I tell her, not wanting to delve into my relationship with someone I haven't spoken to in so long. 

"I think it's all my business since you seem so upset with it." Kathryn spits back and I look up at her.

"Stay out of it." I say and she looks at me with raised eyebrows. I sigh and walk to the foyer, hoping Kathryn will trail behind me. Just as I predicted I can hear her footsteps. I open the door and gesture outside.

"Please leave." I snap and her eyes widen in anger.

"Excuse me?" My former best friend exclaims and I grit my teeth together.

"You have no right to bust in here and tell me what to do." I tell her and she narrows her eyes at me. Her eyes then travel over my shoulder and she bites her lip. I look at her curiously and then glance over my shoulder. Lumbering up the walkway is Robin and I put my fingers to my temple. I do not have time for this.

"Regina? What's going on?" He asks and I notice a bag in his hand but it can wait for now.

"Nothing Robin. I was just escorting my guest to the door." I tell him. He looks at me suspiciously.

"Nice to see you again Kathryn." Robin says politely and she nods at him.

"I guess I'll see you around Regina." She says and I hear the hidden meaning behind her words. This isn't over. She walks away slowly and I can't help but watch as she gets into her car and drive away. Robin nudges me into the house and closes the door.

"I thought I'd surprise you with some wine love. I know you said you didn't want company but I'm your boyfriend, I want to treat you." Robin says and I plaster on a fake smile. We both walk to the kitchen and he finds a cork and some glasses while I take a seat. I'm trying to think of something to talk about with him but all I do I can do is picture Emma.

"Regina?" I hear and shake my head slightly, my hair tickling my neck.

"I'm sorry, you were saying something?" I ask and he pushes a glass of wine towards me.

"I was wondering why Kathryn Midas was here?" Robin asks and I take a sip of wine.

"Well we were quite close when we were younger and she decided to stop by for a quick visit." I keep my answer short, merely enjoying the wine. At least this man can pick wine even if he can't keep up conversation. We keep up a somewhat dull conversation until I can't take it anymore and yawn obnoxiously.

"Are you tired love?" Robin asks and I nod, yawning one more time.

"I guess I must be! Today must be have been busier than I thought!" I lie and he corks the wine for me.

"I'll see you tomorrow then?" Robin suggests and walks around the island to kiss me. I make it's long enough to make him happy and short enough so my skin isn't crawling.

"Yeah maybe." I say and walk him to the door.

"Goodnight Robin." I tell him and he nods, looking slightly disappointed at my indifference towards him. As soon as the door closes I go back to the kitchen and uncork the bottle again. I top up my glass and grab my phone before going up to my bedroom. I settle into bed before shooting Emma a text.

Regina: How was your supper at Graham and Ruby's?

The response comes only a few moments later and I check the clock to see its ten o'clock.

Emma: It was really nice! How was your night?

Regina: Eventful...

Emma: Is that so?
