A Valentine’s Proposal ... After the Fact
Happy Valentine’s Day @sailorkillian!!! I’m your somewhat absent CS Secret Valentine!

Emma turned the key in the ignition and the yellow bug’s engine went silent. Killian’s eyes were closed as his head rested back on the seat. It had been another long adventure..
“So, I guess we can cross Narnia off the lists of realms to visit for our next vacation, huh?”
“Next vacation?” Killian replied, not opening his eyes. “We’d have to have one first, love.”
“Yeah, that’s true,” she agreed.
Killian finally opened his eyes and took her hand, bringing it to his lips and placing a gentle kiss on her knuckles. “Shall we go inside and try to get some rest before your son decides to explore another wardrobe?”
“Yes, please,” Emma said. After slamming her door shut she looked back at Killian over the roof of the car. “And I saw Leroy walking out of Granny’s so we should probably double check the locks on the front door.”
“And barricade the windows.”
“I can’t tell if you’re joking about that,” Emma laughed as she fell into step with him. He slipped an arm around her waist and they slowly walked up the stairs to their front door.
“Keeping everyone out for a few days of solitude with you is no joking matter,” he said, turning her in his arms and pulling her into a kiss.
When they pulled apart Emma’s eyes stayed closed as the smile spread across her face. “We made it home.”
“Aye, love.” He kissed her forehead and put the key into the lock.
He turned the key and pushed open their front door. Emma took a step inside and heard a crunch beneath her feet as though she had stepped onto fallen leaves.
“Killian … what is all this?”
“Bloody hell, I had forgotten.”
