Emma hands him a mug. “Here,” she says. “Try it.”

Mister Gold studies the mug suspiciously. “Hot chocolate?”

“You should add some of this,” she says, handing over a small jar.

“And it is?”

“Cinnamon,” Emma answers before sipping from her own mug. “Sprinkle some, or stir some in. It's delicious.”


Emma lowers her mug, and her voice. “Because your grandson likes it,” she tells him. “I'm giving you a way to connect with him.” She looks around them; Mary Margaret is leaning into David while chatting with Belle; Neal is chatting to Henry. “Or do you have something else in mind?”

Mister Gold sighs. He looks at the small jar in his hand. “Which do you suggest?”

“Sprinkle it on first,” Emma suggests. “Then go from there.”

Aww, really cute! I love Emma's reason for suggesting the cinnamon. Her trying to get Mr. Gold to connect with Henry is lovely and adorable and should have happened in the series.

Thank you; they never seem to have moments like this so I was determined!

I wish something like this had happened in the series!

Emma is too sweet sometimes. Must be all the cinnamon.

Sweet isn't a word that comes to mind for Emma.

I love this little snippet! It show's how willing and accepting Emma is now of Rumpel being her son's grandfather, and how he truly does want to connect with Henry. Great job!

Haha, I would have loved for this to be in the show, it would have been a really sweet moment between them, and it would have been interesting to see what Gold thought!

Thank you! It would've been great, wouldn't it? It would've been interesting to see his take on it.

Although I would like to see them have winter in the show!
