feet and hands have defeated me

Christmas in March

Rating: M

Because we had feet of snow last week and I don’t know if I trust in Spring.

For @lifeinahole27 and @phiralovesloki who have terrible, awful grading. May some terrible, awful Christmas smut on the first day of Spring make it better.

A close chuckle made her eyes snap back open, starting at the sight of her pirate suddenly feet from her with a wide smirk on his face.

“The Saviour gets defeated by some pretty lights and some string?” Killian asked, hook lightly tapping on the strand.

She was not amused. “Don’t you have some tinsel to maim or something?”

Seemingly unperturbed by her tone, he stepped closer, hook latching onto the lights.  “Here love, let me help.”

Emma scoffed. She had two hands and ended up in this mess. Clearly he was just going to make it worse–

Hand and hook moved methodically until Emma was freed, minutes later while he stood, holding two perfectly untangled strands of lights and a teasing grin on his face above the ridiculous red-and-green scarf Mary Margaret had tossed to him when he offered to brave the cold and assist David with the lights.

She was not a scrooge.

But this was all too much.

Endless List of Books I’ve Loved
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

There are those who seek me a lifetime but never we meet,
And those I kiss but who trample me beneath ungrateful feet.

At times I seem to favor the clever and the fair,
But I bless all those who are brave enough to dare.

By large, my ministrations are soft-handed and sweet,
But scorned, I become a difficult beast to defeat.

For though each of my strikes lands a powerful blow,
When I kill, I do it slow…

Hidden pt 7

The next part is here… Will you be satisfied? I hope so! I hate dragging things out so I’m just going to get right into it.


Chapter 7

“I need to tell you guys something. Erm.. It’s about Olivia” Chloe winced before proceeding.

“I don’t know how to do this. But before I tell you I just need to ask you one thing Finn… Uh… H-have you ever… Ever has feelings for me?”

“WHAT!” Finn shouted as he rose to his feet.

“Finn just answer the question please… I need to know” her voice was thick as she tried to hold back the tears.

“No Chloe I have not once or will I ever have feelings for you…” Chloe nodded.

“That’s what I thought” she said putting her head in her hands in defeat.

“What has that got to do what Olivia” Rae asked quietly flicking her eyes between Chloe and Finn.

“Well… Everything really…” Chloe sighed.

“Liv knew I fancied you, she would always tell me that you love seeing… T-that is why I was in New York… She organise us to hang out and get photos taken at the restaurant. I was nervous an took something before coming to see you. She use to put in my head that you liked me back… I’m so-so sorry”

Rae gasped then covered her mouth with her hands. The tears welled up in her eyes but she refused to let them spill.

“She always told me that Rae was a horrible person and was bringing his career down. Which I’ve found out recently was not true. She manipulated me for her own game… She thought that I would be better suited on your arm then Rae and I believed her.”

“Why would she do that Chloe” Finn spat as he grabbed onto Rae’s hand pulling it away from her mouth.

“I don’t know Finn… I feel used betrayed-”

“YOU… You feel betrayed. I can’t believe this… She wouldn’t do this! No she wouldn’t Chloe why are you lying” Finn was angry. His heart rate sky rocketed, every part of him wanted to believe that Olivia was not this women Chloe was describing.

“Finn…” Rae barely whispered as a tear finally slid down her hot cheek.

“No Rae she’s lying.. This can’t be true. She’s just-

"Finn… Stop!” Rae shouted.

“I’m not lying. I wouldn’t do that. Please… I wouldn’t of come here and tell you all this and risk my relationship with my sister for a load of shit” cried Chloe. Her sobs were getting louder, Archie couldn’t help himself he put a comforting hand on her shoulder.

“She use to tell me stuff”

“What stuff Rae…” Finns voice Raw with emotion as confusion set in.

“She use to tell me that I was brave… Brave for keeping our relationship a secret because the world wouldn’t except me. That fans would hate you if they found out you were with someone for me… I just wasn’t mainstream enough”

“Rae why didn’t you tell me this” Finn asked as he wiped her tears and took her into his arms.

“I was scared… I didn’t want to stress you out. I believed her” she sighed.

“You are my everything Rae, you could of came to me. Is this why you won’t go public with me?” Rae nodded into his chest.

“Rae, babe. I love you… You come before my career, I wouldn’t of let anyone talk shit about you. They aren’t us! Doesn’t matter what they say, they aren’t us. You aren’t mainstream and that is what I love about you…” He said softly into her hair.

Rae lifted her head slowly so she could meet Finns eyes. She smiled, the words he spoke made her heart flutter.

“I’m still scared Finn” her smile dropped, she was finally being honest to him.

Finn cupped her cheeks and placed a single kiss on her lips before he spoke. “We will do this together”

Rae nodded once more and clung onto him once more. She didn’t have words anymore only tears. Her fears where still at the surface, all the what if’s and doubts. She knew there would always be people out their that would give her hate, but the biggest question she had floating around in her head was if she could handle it. She didn’t know if she was ready for that life, all she was certain on was she wanted her life to be with Finn.

“I’m sorry Chloe” Finn said sadly as he turned his attention to her.

“You don’t have to apologise for anything. I should be saying sorry, I can’t believe how stupid I was!” Her voice was raised towards the end.

“We both were” Rae softly laughed.

“What are you going to do Finn?”

“I’ve got an idea, an that bitch won’t see it coming” Finn laughed menacingly.


Monday morning came around fast, she had barely slept a wink after Archie dropped her off home. She just wanted time to freeze so she could get her mind up to speed about what happened last night, but of course that was impossible.

She went through three stages as she tried to understand what had happened. of course first was the sadness, She cried into her pillow until i was wet through, her sobs muffled as she kept her head buried. Then was anger, never had she ever wanted to punch someone like she did Olivia before, it torn her to peices. Last was acceptance, she accepted Olivia was a cold hearted bitch that was never looking out for Rae like she was lead to believe, she refused to let this break her once more.

Ignoring her mum had been hard, she didn’t want to come off rude but she wasn’t ready for 20 questions her mum had most likely prepared to unleash, she just remained mute.

Archie tried to perk her mood up by talking about the show case but that seemed to make her go more and more into her closed off shell. She just nodded in reply and kept her head down, walking silently beside him. Archie never talked about what had happened last night, he knew from her actions she was already thinking it through.

Walking into school wasn’t an easy task, she just wanted to hide away in a corner and drown her sorrows in music. Music healed all wounds, licked them clean, made her feel clean once more. But instead she had to try and concentrate on mr. Doyle’s speech about the Great Depression, his words just filtered right through her.

“Enough Rae. You have to choose… If you want a future with him you have to face your fears…” Archie whispered to her in a hush tone.

“It’s not that easy arch…”

“I know Rae, do you think it was easy for me to tell the world I was gay?” He asked still whispering.

“No” she murmured.

“I know how your feeling… Fears or rejection! Fears of not being good enough… I’m sorry Rae but to some they will never accept you, but that’s where you ignore them. You helped me get through that, now let me help you.” He nudged his shoulder with hers and smiled.

“Ok… Now shut up I’m trying to learn about the bloody Great Depression and your distracting me” she giggled softly leaning into him. It was the first time he had seen her smile.


“FUCKING WHAT!” Olivia screamed as she re-read her recent email.

“No. No. No… This has to be a fucking joke!”

She flipped through her contacts until she came across Finns personal mobile number, her hands shook as she waited for the dial tone.

“I’m sorry the person your trying has blocked your number. Please ring your service provider to discus-”

She hung up the phone in frustration before the automated voice had even finished. She paced around her kitchen throwing everything that was in front of her in fits of anger, paper littered the floor, cups were broken and her phone smashed.

Her job was gone, her career may be over and all she could think of was how she was going to now support her life style. She sunk to the floor in defeat and screamed profanities to nothing.

Then it clicked there was only one person who would of leaked her secret to Finn.

“Chloe…” She gasped.

I struggled with this chapter, not happy with it. But I hope this satisfied you thirst :)
