He knows he will find Bae. He knows they will be all right. He knows Ms. Swan will be there to help. He knows Belle will be safe. But, with each step away from Storybrooke, his unease grows and what he knows is hard to keep firmly where it should be.

He doesn't have magic. Henry's excitement and questions grate.

He holds tight to his walking stick, knuckles whitening as the welcome from the stewardess sounds through the cabin.

His gaze falls on his grazed knuckles; he doesn't wince from the pain underneath the paper. That dispenser is a dented mess, he remembers, and he should have been able to fix the broken skin. But this is a world without magic and Bae is here.

It's a world without magic.

Emma relaxes in her seat; he knows because he can feel her doing so. He hears an air stewardess behind him; it's the same one who told them when this uncouth machine would arrive at their destination. Henry's box shifts as he moves in his seat, the better to see out the window; it sets his teeth on edge.

He closes his eyes, takes a deep breath. Soon this will end and then ---

--- more days in this unclean, uncivilised world.

Oh Bae, he thinks. Why couldn't you choose a world with magic?

YUS. I love Gold...and-and - I'm the reader. So what I say goes *arrogantly*

*Grins*

Fantastic, sweetie. It truly is. Gold can be complex and you've pretty much nailed it on the head.

I expected a 'ner!' at the end of that! =P

Thank you very much, I'd always written his character as part of something else (her heart comes to mind of that) so I was very nervous about this.

You've captured Gold perfectly. And is why I both like him; and why I hate even more than Regina. Beautifully done.
