Neverland. Everyone is sleeping and Emma and Killian have to monitor the Jolly Roger that night.
”Hook" she called, when the waters began to move in a strange way.
”What?" asked from the other side of the boat, trying not to disturb her once and for all.
But she called him. Something strange was happening then.
He approached and stood beside her.
”Oh!" she exclaimed, surprised to see something out of the water “What the hell is that?!”
He took his time to reply. Something in the face of that aquatic thing had left him between thoughtful and puzzled.
”Hello, Hook" greeted the sea creature in a sultry voice.
”That, Swan, is a mermaid" answered, finally, in a softly voice. "Don’t talk to them, they are dangerous…”
She was speechless for a moment, not knowing what to say. It was the first time she saw a mermaid and never imagined that something like this was dangerous.
”Chills, she resembles me." whispered the blonde, in disbelief "Why?"
He knew full well the answer.
In another time, in that place, he saw Milah in each of the mermaids from there. It was good at the same time painful. Deep down he knew that none of them was his real love.
However, this time was different.
”I don’t know, lass. I don’t know"
But he knew it perfectly.
