"Life’s too short. Believe me, I know. Four hundred years and still to short."
He’s so frustrated cause he KNOWS she’s flirting. He KNOWS it, and it’s with her MAGIC—THE REASON WHY HE CAN’T EVER KISS HER OR GET CLOSE TO HER.
And he has to check himself every time because he also can’t get too physically close to her because what if she tries to kiss him. I mean what would have happened if she tried to sit next to him?
And she’s finally, finally in a place where she’s happy, she’s embracing his magic and she’s actively trying to get his attention. If not for the curse he would be snarking right back at her with the raised eyebrows and that smirk.
They’ve essentially switched roles. He’s now the insular one, trying to deny himself and keep Emma away and she’s the one who’s coming on to him, joking with him, trying to get him to lighten up.
My heaven for a lust curse that has Emma trying to jump his bones and Hook having to distance them and getting all frustrated and whatnot.

The award-winning Balbusso twins have contributed eight exquisite illustrations to this edition, as well as a striking cover design. The novel’s celebrated first line is blocked in gold on the slipcase. In a new introduction, the author Sebastian Faulks praises ‘a novel of almost boundless wit and charm that has withstood film and television adaptations and attempts to define it as a “fairy tale” or a “rom-com”.’
But only you did. I can never repay you. You gave me my life. But this (…)
Take it. Wear it. Let my name have one more moment in the sun before it disappears from the w o r l d.
