My head snaps around at the hiss, but it takes awhile to believe he’s real. How could he have gotten here? I take in the claw marks from some wild animal, the back paw he holds slightly above the ground, the prominent bones in his face. He’s come on foot, then, all the way from 13. Maybe they kicked him out or maybe he just bones in his face. He’s come on foot, then, all the way from 13. Maybe they kicked him out or maybe he just couldn’t stand it there without her, so he came looking.
"It was the waste of a trip. She’s not here," I tell him. Buttercup hisses again. "She’s not here. You can hiss all you like. You won’t find Prim." At her name, he perks up. Raises his flattened ears. Begins to meow hopefully.
"Get out!" He dodges the pillow I throw at him. "Go away! There’s nothing left for you here!" I start to shake, furious with him. "She’s not coming back! She’s never ever coming back here again!" I grab another pillow and get to my feet to improve my aim. Out of nowhere, the tears begin to pour down my cheeks.
"She’s dead." I clutch my middle to dull the pain. Sink down on my heels, rocking the pillow, crying. "She’s dead, you stupid cat. She’s dead."
“But that wasn´t the first time I ever saw her. I saw her in the hallways at school, and at my mother’s false funeral, and walking the sidewalks in the Abnegation sector. I saw her, but I didn’t see her; no one saw her the way she truly was until she jumped.
I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.”
You’re something of an open book.
#i’m not okay hook knew emma the moment he met her#how she refuses to trust people#how she doesn’t want to abandon henry the way she was abandoned#that she’s an orphan#and it’s crazy how since meeting him she was finally able to admit that about herself#and he sees how love is rare in her life#which is why she has so many walls up in the first place#to him she really is an open book#so when people say that captain swan is nothing but fanservice it not only makes me laugh#but also makes me wonder what show some of them are watching#this was always planned from the very beginning#from almost the instant she met hook he was able to see her#the real her#in only a matter of hours#he saw right through her walls#you think that’s just a coincidence?#it’s not#the writers have written him in a way so that he relates to emma#how he understands her#how he sees her for who she really is#not just as the savior#but as so much more and it all started the moment they met#even before we knew the kind of love they will have one day#it was all set up from the start#so even if some people refuse to accept it#it’s still all there#all the endless parallels just confirms that#captain swan wasn’t written because the fans made it popular#captain swan became popular among the fans because of the way it was written#how it was ALWAYS MEANT TO BE WRITTEN#from the very beginning!
I see the way you look at him. If you tell him this, it will rip his world apart. And a part of him will always blame you.
