Captain Swan. Modern AU.
"She supposes the reason she tells him is the same reason she kept his phone number after all those weeks."
Notes: I don’t normally like to post new chapters at night, but I’ll make an exception. Feel free to message me with comments/questions/concerns/etc. Hope you guys like this one. Oh, and, fun fact (because I don’t think this will ever come across clear enough in the fic): Killian’s aunt, Tink’s mother, is the Blue Fairy. I couldn’t very well call her Blue, though (but Tink’s last name is Greene, because I think I’m funny sometimes), so she’s Shay (short for Shaylee), which is a Celtic/Gaelic name meaning ‘fairy princess of the field.’ The more you know and all that. And also - it’s not over yet, so fret not. There’s still (quite) a bit of story left.

“Are you and Killian dating?”
She nearly chokes on her frozen yogurt.
That was not the response she expected to ‘Killian’s gonna pick you up from school tomorrow.’
Her son shrugs nonchalantly (except he doesn’t do anything nonchalantly) and takes another bite of his yogurt.
“Just curious.” He looks at her, then, eyes serious, all gentle reassurance. From her ten year old. “But it’s okay if you are. I won’t be upset.”
This isn’t how she wanted to do this.
