"How can you marry him Emma?" Killian said, his voice louder than a second ago. "Why would you lose yourself with him if you love me?"
Emma sighed, her hand raising up to hold his, her thumb caressing the back of his hand, and she even leaned closer to kiss his palm. “My heart may choose you, but I’m doing the right thing for both of us.”
"Emma, look at me", he cupped her face with both his hands, ignoring the cold metal of her ring on his wrist; she was slipping away from his arms slowly, he could feel her running away again, but this time Killian wasn’t asleep and letting her go wasn’t an option. "If you love me, stay, because you’re not doing the right thing by marrying him… if you love me stay with me." Killian stepped closer forcing her to lift her chin so she could look at him. "I love you", he said, his lips only a breath away from hers. "That’s the only right thing, you and me, we’re right", Killian whispered on her lips and Emma blinked and gripped his hand tighter, parting her lips and closing her eyes as if she were giving him permission to come closer.
"Please don’t", Emma said just when Killian closed his eyes. "I turned my back on you once, so don’t make me do it twice. Please."
