Title: tick
Fandom: Once Upon a Time (OUaT)
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Season 1, episode 1: when Henry watches the clock.
Summary: She was staying.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

I just like Henry and wanted to write this small scene to try out writing him.

A small boy watches from his window, chin on his arms.

The clock doesn’t move and he stifles a sigh. He couldn’t have been so wrong, could he? She’d stay. He knew she would. She just had to believe.

Didn’t she?

The clock still doesn’t move.

His eyes stay where they are. She had to. She was the daughter of Snow White and the charming Prince who were so very in love.

She had to believe. She had to!

The smaller hand moved.


He suddenly smiles; it grows, brightens.


“She’s staying,” he whispers into his arms. “She’s staying.”

Oh, loved this! It is short and sweet and it really does capture Henry...he is so hopeful and determined and optimistic and all of that really shines here! :)

Thank you! I wasn't sure I could capture him well and this scene is from a couple episodes ago, so I held my breath and wrote!

.. that's a lot of faith for a little kid. Beautifully written; beautifully captured.
