Not sure if I should continue it or not. Let me know.

Title: In Your Hands
Rating: Eventually M, starts out tame
Pairing: Swan Queen
Summary: Regina surprises even herself when she hugs Emma goodbye as the new curse is taking everyone back to the Enchanted Forest, but in parting she entrusts Emma with a prized possession, something she has closely guarded since losing Daniel…her heart.


“Nooooooo!” Emma screamed as she watched Snow and David, her own mother and father, disappear into the black vortex that swirled behind Regina. Again, her family was being ripped apart. Tears streamed down Emma’s cheeks as she turned to Regina who fought against the force of the magic’s pull.

The former queen reached out to Emma who took her hand and held on fiercely.Around her waist, Emma felt Henry’s tight grip. She glanced down to see his frightened eyes staring up at Regina with hope and wonder. She had saved him once. She had saved all of them. Certainly, she could do it again. Any minute his mother would wave her hand and the winds would still, but nothing happened. Nothing except the feel of their feet dragging across the asphalt in the middle of Main Street.

At a growl from Regina, Emma looked back up. Regina’s dark eyes were frightened and tears streaked her determined face. She watched as Regina straightened as best she could and suddenly pulled Emma into a hug.

“Take care of our son,” Regina whispered in her ear. She felt Regina’s right arm move from around her shoulder and drift down between them. Emma didn’t have time to react before Regina reached into her own chest and pulled out her heart. It beat fast and strong in her hand. She made a small gesture to Emma to take it. “And this.”

Emma was shocked and pulled back. “Regina, no…I can’t.”

“You have to, Emma. You’ll need it to get us back home.” The brunette’s grip of her other arm tightened around Emma’s neck the magic almost impossible to resist anymore. “As long as you have someone’s heart, you can control what they do. And you can talk to them. You’ll be like a voice in my head.”

Emma swallowed around the lump in her throat and the fear thudding against her chest. But she nodded anyway in understanding. She tried to smile to ease the discomfort of the moment. “You actually trust me?”

Regina looked at her in a way Emma had never seen before. The woman feared across realms shook with nerves as her lips quivered into a trusting smile. “I never have to worry when my heart is in your hands.” She placed the pulsing organ in Emma’s hand.

Emma let go of her grip on Regina’s waist so she could bring up her hand to cup safely over Regina’s heart. “I’ll take care of it. I promise, and I’ll find you. All of you.”

“I know,” Regina whispered before looking down at Henry. “I love you,” she quickly glanced up at Emma, making brief eye contact with her, hoping the blonde understood, before cupping Henry’s cheek.

“I love you too,” Henry blurted out and reached up for a quick hug. When he got jerked forward, Emma grabbed his scarf and Regina quickly let go.
Unlike the others, Regina didn’t make a sound as she disappeared into the vortex. Instantly, the portal closed and the empty town was eerily silent. All Emma and Henry could do was hold each other as they stared into the space before them.

Emma felt Regina’s heart thumping wildly in her hand before calming to a steady beat. “She’s there,” she mumbled. Henry looked up at her curiously, but she just shook her head. “Now what?”

A flash of determination swept across Henry’s face, a look reminiscent of Regina’s just moments ago. “We find our family,” he said.

Please continue. It's intriguing, that Regina gave Emma her heart without there being any official declaration of love.
And if you do continue make Henry a bit less annoying, eh?

I second that, please continue! I love that Emma echoed the family motto of "I'll find you" and I can't wait to see how they get back together.
