Here’s a snippet from a CSBB work in progress for you to enjoy!
“They showed me around,” Emma said, smile widening just a bit when she noticed his eyes widen. “Figured I should see the place before we do our thing in a week.”
“Our thing in a week?”
“Youth event. Anti-concussions. Learn how to skate. You should probably mark it down now, you’ll have to be there.”
“You’re the captain aren’t you?”
“Unless this was some sort of long con.”
She laughed – a real, genuine laugh and maybe this wasn’t going as badly as he thought it was. “Then I’m afraid you’ll probably be required to attend. With that slightly fancy jersey on as well.”
Killian hummed, lower lip sticking out just a bit as he pretended to consider his options – like there was some sort of option beside the resounding yes, of course practically ricocheting off the corners of his brain. “I think I can do that,” he said.
“Consider this your personal invitation to come and impress kids who’ve never seen ice before.”
“Consider this me accepting your invitation then, Swan.”
The smile widened and the laugh was a bit quieter, but just as real as she shifted the papers again. “You don’t think you’ll be busy then?”
“I’ll figure it out.”
Emma made a face and it almost looked impressed and Killian could hear Will screaming for him from the other side of the door. “They’re going to leave without you,” she said softly.
“Not if they want to keep their spots on first line.”
“You’re an evil captain. Lording your power over those beneath you.”
