I stare at this moment of the kiss scene for an extremely long time, for multiple reasons.
1. Emma is holding on to his collar so hard, and she follows his face with hers for a while before she says it’s a “Once time thing”. Her body want’s to keep going, but her mind is like “back away girl, not now”
2. Killian is so not done. Look at him. Totally captivated by her. He even opens his mouth back up and moves in for more kisses, he wants to keep going so bad, he’s just staring at her lips. Intense staring. Then he closes his eyes again just hoping her lips will come to his again. He doesn’t want this moment to ever end, it was just all too amazing. She’s too amazing.
