Notes: After the first attempt to cast the Curse, Regina has a bit of a tantrum. I will need tags, please.

My failure was like an icy sword driven through the blackness of my soul. I was trembling with rage and unable to quell the shaking of my hands as I pulled on the reigns of my horse. The nag reared, trying to dislodge me, and I cried out when a low scraggly branch cut into my cheek and tangled in my hair. With the taste of my blood and tears on my lips, I slapped the horse’s flank with my crop, uncaring when she missed a step from the sudden pain. She wasn’t mine. I’d killed my beautiful horse for the Curse.
