Emma growled in frustration and left the room. Everyone else could hear her door slam behind her. She got in the shower, probably the quickest shower she had taken in a long time, and got dressed. She wore her leather red jacket and a gray beanie. Right outside her door was ever charming Hook. He placed his hand across the frame of the door, so she couldn’t get out of the room.
“You know I was joking, right love?”
“An unnecessary joke which leads to many interrogations, I hope you realize” she answered, trying to get past his arm.
“No, no, no. Don’t get mad”
“Henry already thinks we did…. Stuff! How can I not be angry?”
“But he knows we’re together, love. I’m sure the lad wouldn’t mind.”
She crawled under his arm, shaking the dust off her clothes when she was standing. “We’re not, Killian. We’re not together”
“You know we have to talk about that kiss eventually, don’t you?”
“Now is not the time Hook.” She started heading for the stairs.
He pulled her by her belt with his hook. He then grabbed her by the shoulders and looked her in the eye. “We both know we’re not making a mistake. You were there. You saw it. And you know I-”
She cut him off with a quick peck on the lips. His tense expression replaced by a relaxed smile. She covered his mouth with her hand. “NOT the ‘L’ word. And let me think of something to tell all of them. Give me some time.” She grabbed his hand and led him downstairs, but let go of it once they were close to their table.
