Hello! I’m you CS Secret Shipmate! Here is your gift, a Lt. Duckling story. I hope that you like it. I apologize in advance. It may not be the best example of writing that you’ve ever seen, but that’s ok. It’s the thought that counts. Enjoy.
“Can you please tell me where we are going?” Emma’s curiosity was about to get the best of her.
“No. I’ve told you a million times. It would spoil the surprise.” Killian was always amazed by her curious nature. That was just one of the many things that he loved about his new bride.
Killian couldn’t wait to start new adventures with Emma. As a part King David and Queen Snow’s wedding gift to their daughter and her husband, they promoted Killian to Captain in the Royal Navy and they had presented him with his own ship to commandeer. Killian had yet to tell Emma about it. He wanted to surprise her with the news on their honeymoon.
Killian guided Emma away from the castle and towards the docks where his new ship was harbored. The whole while she constantly begged him to tell her where they were going. He couldn’t help but to smile.
Once they were at the ship he picked her up in his arms and carried her up the gangplank.
“Whoa there, Jones! You need to warn a girl before you just pick her up and toss her over your shoulder.”
“You aren’t just any girl, Emma. You are my wife. That means I can pick you up any time that I please.”
Emma just rolled her eyes at him. “You may be my husband, but you are not the boss of me. Let’s get that straight right now!”
“Very well then, but since I am the Captain you have to obey my commands while on board my ship.” That’s not exactly how Killian had expected to share the news, but there was no better time.
“What do you mean by ‘captain’ and ‘my ship’?”
“Surprise!” Killian said with a huge grin. “This is my ship and I’m its Captain. In appreciation of my service in the Royal Navy as well as all of the joy that I have brought to their daughter, your parents promoted me to captain. And as a wedding gift they have given me this lovely new vessel.”
Emma jumped into his arms and put her arms around his neck. “This is unbelievable! I can’t believe they did this for you. I mean they are okay with it now, but at first they couldn’t stand the idea of their one and only daughter, their little girl, falling in love with a sailor.”
“I ended up charming them with my dashing good looks and charm.”
“That’s the same thing you did to me. I remember how I couldn’t stand you at first. You were ever so noble with all of your ‘good form’ and so forth.”
“There’s nothing wrong with good form, love.” Killian said mockingly. “And speaking of good form, it’s about time that I make sure everything’s in order for our voyage.”
“What do you mean by voyage?” Emma asked.
“This is the second part of the surprise. For our honeymoon we are going to set sail for seven days of adventure, relaxation, and lots of romance.”
“That sounds great and all, but we don’t have any provisions prepared for the journey or even any clothing.” What am I saying? This is our honeymoon we don’t need to worry about clothing.
“No need to worry. I made preparations ahead of time. I even had your mother go through your wardrobe. You’ll find everything you need below deck.”
“Oh, Killian! That’s amazing! I love you so much!” Emma planted gentle kiss to his lips.
“There will be plenty of time for that later, but for now we need to get on our way. How about while I’m double checking everything up here you go and check out things down below?” Killian pointed her towards the stairs leading downward. “And be sure to look for a special package in our quarters.”
“Sure. I’ll be back in a little while. Try not to miss me when I’m gone.”
“There won’t be a moment that goes by I won’t think of you.”
Emma walked down the stairs and straight to the captain’s quarters of the ship. There sitting on the desk was a large box wrapped in pale pink paper. On top of the box was a card addressed to her. The card read.
My dearest Emma,
I hope that you will find what’s inside to your liking. I chose it especially for you. Once you put it on please head back up to the deck. I have more surprises in store.
Inside the box was a light pink, long, flowing gown with a matching silky robe. It was one of the most beautiful things that she had ever seen. And the fact that Killian picked it out for her made it even that more special.
After changing into the gown and taking a few moments to freshen up Emma went up to the deck to see what other surprises Killian had for her.
By this time the ship was just leaving the harbor. Emma found Killian at the helm. She rushed up behind him and placed her arms around his waist.
“Don’t you look beautiful, Mrs. Jones?” Killian turned his head around to kiss her cheek.
“Why thank you, Mr. Jones.” Emma put her arms around him drawing him even closer. Then she began to plant kisses up and down his neck.
“I love you too and I can’t wait to show you just how much, but have patience. We need to wait until we get a little farther out to sea. It would be bad form to be doing that where everyone can see.”
Emma started to blush when she realized that there were still a few other ships nearby.
“Oops! I got so caught up in the moment I forgot that we aren’t totally alone just yet.”
“Don’t worry my dear. We will be alone soon enough. In the meantime I’ll let you in on another surprise.”
“I love your surprises!”
“Take a look in that storage box over there.” He pointed towards a large box near the side of the deck.
Emma opened the box and found a large blanket, a picnic basket full of food, a bottle of wine, and a set of glasses.
“You thought of everything, didn’t you?”
“I want this night to be a memorable one, Emma. A night that we will never forget.”
As Killian sailed the ship further out to sea Emma laid out the blanket and set out the food and wine. She still couldn’t believe that he had arranged all of this.
Once he had selected the perfect location Killian dropped the ship’s anchor and joined Emma on the blanket.
“Ahoy there, Captain.” Emma grabbed the lapel of Killian’s coat bringing him down on top her.
“My dear Emma. I can’t tell you how much I want this and have been waiting for this moment. But let’s take this slow. I want to savor every moment. Besides, we wouldn’t want this good food and wine to go to waste.”
Emma couldn’t help but have her mood deflated just a little. Patience was not one of her strong suits. Leave it to me to fall in love with a man with the patience of Job.
After finishing the last of the food and the wine Emma and Killian lay on the blanket looking up at the stars.
“Just look at us. The princess and the sailor.” Killian looked over at Emma. “What a pair we make?”
“I know. Who would have ever thought that we’d end up together? I was such a wild and rebellious teenager when we first met.” Emma laughed.
“And I was the uptight noble lieutenant who was all about following the rules.”
“Now you are the uptight noble Captain!”
Killian grabbed Emma and pulled her over on top of him.
“You’ve got that wrong, love! I’m no longer uptight and I intend on showing you just wild I can get. Are you ready?”
Emma brought her mouth down close to Killian’s ear. “Aye, aye, captain.”Omg omg omg you are the best!
