His hand slid up her arm, leaving a trail of gooseflesh in its wake, his fingers traveling slow up her shoulder and neck until they softly stroked her jawline. “I know you’re apprehensive, and I understand that.”
His voice was hypnotizing, seducing her while his thumb moved up to stroke her lower lip. “But we both know how incredible we’re going to be together,” he murmured. “You can feel it, just like I do. We don’t know how this will all end up, but we know we have right now, and we have this.” Continue reading
He was dangerous. Dangerous to her senses, dangerous
to her peace of mind…just all-over dangerous.
My Once Upon A Time fanfic, You Had Me At Malfeasance, is a series of one-off’s set between and around series episodes. This chapter is set after Emma’s memory loss in season three. Killian convinces Emma to return to Storybrooke with Henry, and this is a bit of the road trip from NYC to Maine.
“I’ll never get used to these horseless carriages,” Hook complained. “Everyone drives like a madman and there’s no way to stretch out your legs or lie down, if you’ve a mind to.”
Emma gave him a warning look, sending a half-nod over her shoulder in Henry’s direction.
“The lad’s asleep,” Hook informed her. “Has been for some time now.”
“Well, you can get out and stretch your legs a minute – I’m stopping for gas.”
“Fuel. It’s what the car runs on.” She put her blinker on, merging over to the right and pulled into a gas station. “This won’t take long. There are restrooms inside, if you need them.”
He gave her a nod, heading toward the dingy looking mini-market attached to the gas station. He came out a few moments later with a key attached to a large block of wood. He held it up, walking over to her.
“What the devil is this? Do I use the block to prop open the door?”
She smirked. “They do that so no one steals the key.” Continue reading
“And now I call my claim on you.” He moved in closer yet, until he stood touching her. “We will raise our child here, or in your valley or any other wretched place you want to drag me to. And we’ll have ten more to keep him company.”
Topic: “Fighting for Love”
Her face was a rictus of pain as she looked up at Lizzie.
“So beautiful,” she mouthed, and then the light slowly left her eyes.
“I know,” she said. “But it’s still hard sometimes. Being alone.”
“It is,” he agreed. “So isn’t it grand that we’re sitting here alone together?”
She was beauty incarnate, and he knew why she loved storms. There was a wildness in them – a freedom of being thrown where the waves take you – that called to her.
From: Eight Nights At Sea
Stowing away on a pirate ship can put a girl in real peril, especially when there’s magic involved . . .
Zephyr Jamieson is a devilishly handsome pirate captain, sailing the seas of a magical realm. He encounters a beauty named Rina, a woman with a body that sets him aflame and a secret that she cannot tell. Rina barters passage aboard Zephyr’s ship for herself and her secretive twin brother with the only thing the pirate captain appears to be interested in.
Can eight nights at sea lead to more? Or will her secret tear them apart?
In my Once Upon A Time fanfic, Friendly Shores, we see the whole universe get flipped. Rumple’s a hippie, Emma’s a pirate, and “Mr. Gold” is now “Mr. Charming.” All our beloved characters get wildly different personas, except for Killian, who’s left wondering what the hell is going on.
In this scene, he’s been successfully fighting off the lascivious advances of a certain lady pirate, but who knows how long that will last . . .
He was just stepping out of the bathroom, shaking his wet head and with a towel around his waist, when he realized Emma was sitting cross-legged on his bed. He noted with relief that she was fully clothed.
“Good morning,” she said. “Thought I heard you shower last night.”
“That one was for self-preservation,” he replied. “This one was for hygiene.” Continue reading
