Emma Swan grew up in foster homes, often being discarded, given nothing but the last thought and scraps for dinner. But on her 28th birthday, when it seems she's gotten her life where she wants it, there's a knock on her front door, and her visitor is a 10-year-old boy, claiming to be the baby she gave up 10 years ago. He takes her back to little Storybrooke in Maine, a small, harbor side town where everything seems too perfect for Emma to feel normal.
When she meets Henry's adoptive father, before crossing paths with the cold-hearted mayor, Emma decides that maybe she should stay in Storybrooke to make sure her son really does have his best chance here... And totally not because the attractive man whose taken care of him the past 10 years.
"You can't eat that." Henry shook his head, quickly grabbing the plastic tote holding the apple turnover.
"Henry put it down. That's Emma's." Killian scolded him lightly.
"It's cursed! A sleeping curse- I'll prove it!" He popped the lid off the tote and took a bite.
Emma paused before sighing. "See, Henry, there's-" His eyes rolled back and he collapsed. "Henry! Henry!?"
