Emma could not believe what she had been through in the last 24 hours, let alone the last six months of her life, where she went from a lonely orphan to… mother, daughter, even granddaughter if you count Regina as part of the family.
Her head pounded every time she gave things a second thought.
In less than a few months she had reunited with her 11 year old son to learn that his book of fairytales turned out to be the stories of her past.
She learned that the only woman she ever trusted and considered family turned out to be her long lost mother, which to her surprise sent her away not because she didn't love her but because she wanted to save her, from a terrible evil threatening her home.
If that wasn't enough for a life time, she learned just a few weeks ago that the only man she had ever trusted with her heart and her son's father was no other then the son of Rumpelstiltskin, the dark one. The man responsible for creating the curse, which lead to all the misfortune she had as a child.
If six months ago someone would have told her that she would be on a journey to Neverland on the Jolly Roger, with Captain Hook, The Evil Queen, Rumpelstiltskin, and her parents Snow White and Prince Charming, to rescue her son from Peter Pan, she would have sent that freak to a psychiatrist.
But to her dismay this was her reality, she was meant to be a princess, she was meant to be loved and cared for, but it was all taken away by Regina, her mother's stepmother her sons adoptive mother and the woman with whom she had just worked along with magic, to save Storybrook.
She didn't know what to think, she had magic, actual magic, like the kind of magic she saw in movies like Harry Potter, or Peter Pan
The only thing she knew was that even though now she had all those people in her life, she never felt more alone. In the past 24 hours she had lost Neal, to a psychopath woman that turned out to be his fiancé and also the one responsible for taking Henry, to another unknown world.
But even though the loss of her child and her once true love were a lot to handle, they weren't the reason why she felt so alone.
Probably because Neal's death hadn't sank in yet and as for Henry she knew that she'll find him, that's what she did she found people, no matter where they where or how good they were at hiding, she found them
The reason for the loneliness, sadness and anger she felt wasn't Henry or Neal, NO the reason she felt all those things was in fact sleeping in the bed next to her, it was Snow White, her mother.
