Regina's P.O.V

"I'm fairly hungry Henry. What about you?" I ask him and he just smiles at me, his dimples on full display.

"I could eat a horse!" He exclaims loudly and I laugh at him.

"A whole horse!? Would you share with me?" I ask him.

"Of course Gina! You my friend!" Henry tells me as if my question was ridiculous. I give him a huge smile as we're about to step into the diner and look up to see Emma watching us with a small smile on her face. Her eyes look up to meet mine and she just nods like I've done well.

Emma's P.O.V

The next day I'm woken up by a small weight landing on my body. I groan loudly and hope to fall back asleep.

"Momma! Wake up!" Henry shouts and I mumble something that's supposed to mean 'go to back to bed' but I'm pretty sure it's not even coherent.

"What? Momma, I'm hungry!" Henry yells in my ear after lifting up the sheet I had pulled up over my head.

"Fine Henry I'm up!" I tell him loudly and he stops his attack of trying to get me out of bed.

"Yay! Food!" Henry shouts like a starved teenager and he pulls on my hand. I throw the sheets off my body and pull on some boxer shorts over my panties and pull on a bra and a hoodie after stripping off my pajama t-shirt.

"Henry go wait in the kitchen and I'll be there in a minute. I have to go to the bathroom." I tell him and he runs into the kitchen to wait. A few minutes later I'm joining him and we eat our toaster waffles before getting ready for the day.

"You ready to go to school kid? We have to leave soon!" I call out and I hear his little feet running through the apartment to me.

"READY!" He screams before coming to a skidding stop in front of me. I straighten his clothes out (the ones he picked out himself and got dressed on his own) and then hand him his dinosaur backpack with his Toy Story lunch box and agenda in it. I make sure I grab my phone and wallet before taking his hand and leading him out the door. I lock it and we walk down the pathway to the sidewalk. We walk past my bug and enjoy the fresh air as I take the kid to school and then turn to go to the sheriff's station.

I walk past town hall and glance up at the mayor's window. I see her brown eyes looking down at me and I stop to look back up at her. I smile and wave and I see her slightly blush and turn away. I just chuckle and shake my head as I keep walking. The mayor is such an interesting woman. So cold and isolated but yet whenever she's around Henry she turns into someone so open and welcoming, so talkative and loving. But as soon as she notices someone looking she closes herself off.

"Morning Graham!" I call out as I throw my stuff into my desk and then go into his office.

"Morning Emma." He says with a warm smile. "How are you today? How's Henry today?"

"We're good! He loves to go to school every day and see his friends and his teacher. How's Ruby doing?" I ask him and he smiles.

"She's great! I'm so happy she finally got pregnant." Graham tells me and I can see the joy in his eyes. On the second day of the job I found out Ruby and Graham were married and just celebrated their second anniversary. They're so cute together.

"Yeah I gave her my congratulations last night at the diner. She's already glowing." I tell him happily.

"Alright today I have to do a little bit of paperwork and then take it to town hall for Mayor Mills. It's going to be a slow day, as usual." Graham tells me. The gears in my head start turning when he says "town hall" and "Mayor Mills".
