Monroe didn’t know why he’d taken the other country road. He just fancied the scenic route. He’d been visiting a cousin over in Boston. He’d driven of course he’d driven, he liked the open road, he liked the feeling of freedom driving along those long stretches of barely anything there road provided. Like he was living in one of those old road movies. Just him and his favourite bug.
Storybrooke, what a name. He thought as he drove along. He scoffed and shook his head, he was pretty tired maybe there was a bed and breakfast he could stay in. It was around 5 and he didn’t want to be driving all night. Monroe let out a long whistle as he headed into the town centre. That clock was beautiful, a real nice piece of work but it was broken. Maybe he could take a look.
Monroe pulled up outside a shop, all he was planning on doing was heading in getting the address and heading off to a B&B the sooner he could get home to normality the better. The wonder and amusement he’d felt had settled into an uneasy feeling that he couldn’t explain, something wasn’t right and the wolf in him was itching about something.
Henry didn’t even think as he pulled open the door of the yellow bug, there was only one yellow bug in town and that was his Emma’s. He jumped into the bug and his eyes suddenly went wide as he saw it wasn’t Emma sat in the drivers seat, no this was something different alltogether. The man looked at him for a moment and then his face changed, his eyes turned red, his teeth elongated his face shifted and he looked more like a wolf than human.
Monroe managed to pull himself back together, the kid just looked at him shocked, he’d definitely seen the wolf. ‘Crap.’ Monroe said outloud without meaning to.
‘You’re one of them,’ The kid said wide eyed, yet he didn’t seem scared, he seemed intrigued.
‘Woah kid, I dunno who you are but I think you should get out of the car.’ Monroe said rubbing the back of his head nervously.
‘You’re one of them! You can’t leave now your here, you could help me!’ Henry said, seeing an oppertunity. If Emma didn’t believe him after seeing this.
‘Hey dude, I don’t know what your talking about but maybe you should get out of my car. Didn’t your mom ever tell you not to talk to strangers.’ Monroe muttered. He’d already been falsely accused of abducting a little kid once this year he didn’t need another on his record. Monroe pondered for a moment about how he always managed to get himself into sticky situations. Bad luck just seemed to follow him around.
‘We don’t get strangers in Storybrooke.’ Henry said still watching him a little in awe seeming to examine his face.
‘Look, I don’t mean to be rude kid but you kind of need to get out of my car.’ Monroe said.
‘Can you do it at will? The wolf thing?’ Henry smiled ignoring Monroe’s argument for him to leave the car.
‘Look man I don’t know what you’re talking about…’ Monroe began.
‘Save it. I saw it.’ Henry replied holding a hand up.
Monroe let out a laugh, this kid was fiesty and he was cheeky. Monroe looked at him for a moment and Hnery simply beamed at him a grin on his face. Monroe sighed and shook his head again.
‘Come on dude gimmie a break. Get out of my car before someone thinks I’m kidnapping you.’ Monroe said pinching the bridge of his nose…
