Summary: CIA hacker Emma Swan is paired up with MI6 agents Liam and Killian Jones on a dangerous mission to track down an ex-spy who’s hunting and killing agents from both countries. She thinks she has all the information they need to catch the defector, but sometimes the past is buried where even her expert computer skills can’t uncover.
We’re getting to explore more of their dynamic, more backstory, more mission information, and I’m just having a great time imagining it all. This is one of my favourite chapters, so I hope y'all enjoy reading it half as much as I am writing it!
Killian gasped awake to the terrifying feeling of being crushed.
He was lying on his side, his arm propped against him, a pillow at
his back, and he couldn’t breathe, eyes closed tight as he struggled.
Every wheeze sent shocks of pain through his chest, his arm radiating
agony with each movement he tried to make, and he didn’t want to even try.
He knew he needed air, he knew he needed to pull in the precious oxygen
his lungs so urgently needed, but he couldn’t find the strength to force
himself to go through the pain that particular movement would cause.
Liam must have noticed something was wrong, must have rushed over,
because soon his brother’s familiar arm was behind his head, pulling, lifting,
sitting him up at the side of the bed. Changing positions was agony,
but at least he could breathe - the short, shallow panting that was all he’d
been able to manage since the night before, his right fist gripping the edge of
the mattress as a lifeline.
He was sweating, unbearably hot as his body slowly calmed, Liam’s
hand rubbing circles on his uninjured shoulder until he didn’t seem quite so
desperate for each small gasp of air.
“You all right, little brother?” he asked worriedly.
Killian nodded, wincing as the movement pulled along his neck and
shoulder. “Will be,” he rasped, forcing a small grin. He could
already feel the sweat cooling on his skin, but there was a warmth through him
that hadn’t been there the last time he’d woken.
I did Blind Betrayal for the first timetime a few days ago (cause in my first run I killed everyone in Cambridge just to piss the BOS off) and when I went to talk to Maxson in the begining of the mission, my thoughts first went to Acadia.
commissioned from @vasheren who is a delight!!! again, this is from few years ago which I never shared, which I feel terrible about since I probably should’ve shared them with the rest of the world the moment I received these wonderful illustrations.
