"I know what you're doing," Mary Margaret says, shifting her hand on her mug of laced hot chocolate.
Ruby meets her gaze evenly. She neither denies or admits anything, but she does smile. Mary Margaret lifts her cup and waves it in the air. "There's much more than cinnamon in here."
Again, Ruby doesn't deny or admit anything. She's planned this moment. She always plans them. The doors of the diner have been locked for hours, and the blinds are drawn. There's no one to see them, no one to watch as Mary Margaret slides out of her booth and sways closer to her.
"You're a good friend, Ruby," she drawls. "You know what I need even when I won't admit it."
Still, Ruby doesn't speak, but she knows she's right. She's always known what her dearest friend needs and has always given it to her. She gave her heart back in the Enchanted Forest, but when she wanted to leave for some stupid Prince, she forced herself to let her go. She'll force herself again to let her go in the light of the morning, but for tonight, gathering her into her arms and letting Mary Margaret kiss her first, she's got her again where she belongs, even if she did have to rely on another drunken hookup to do it.
