Killian was getting married soon.
He felt surprisingly nervous about the ceremony, especially since he had already married the princess. At the very least, he didn’t have to worry about Emma not meeting him at the end of the aisle as he did the first night. She would be there, wearing a dress she wouldn’t let him see, his beautiful bride. It was the fact that this performance would be for her family and peers that worried him. What if he did something wrong, someone said something? Would he disappoint her family?
Now that he’d become more or less accepted the royal family, he was terrified he’d do something to mess it up. Silver’s old taunts haunted him at moments like this, causing him to doubt himself. Could he be the man that Emma’s parents hoped he would be? He truly loved Emma. He would die for her. But sometimes love wasn’t enough.
