Fic: We Own Tonight (27/?) (M)
Author’s note: Our favorite princess and lieutenant are back! I’m so sorry this took so long, but it’s extra long to make up for it. (Seriously, so much happens that there was no room for Elsa and Liam!) This has been in the works for a long time, so I hope you like it. ;)
Chapter Twenty Seven
“Man the bowlines!” Liam called, rather unnecessarily. His crew was well trained; they knew how to maneuver the Jewel into a berth, especially one in their home port. The castle loomed in front of them, flags whipping in the stiff breeze. The crest of Emma’s family seemed to blaze in the sun, calling them home.
So why didn’t he feel happy?
The momentary excitement caused by Ian’s attempted escape dissipated almost as quickly as it came. Emma divided her time between Jeremiah and Killian, becoming almost a maternal figure in the boy’s life. Liam was pleased to see the lad doing so well, pleased to get to spend the extra time with his brother, but he could see the toll it was taking on her. She was too young to have such cares.
