Will raises his head as a breeze from the sea wafts inland. He leans into the salty, moist air, his eyes drifting closed. His lips lift into a smile. The breeze smells of salt and water, of sea and a life of freedom, of Jack.
He'd started out hating all Pirates, but one Captain in particular had changed all of that. At one time, Will had thought he might join him forever for an endless adventure on the seas, but Jack had eventually forced him away. For a few days, however, it had been only the two of them. Will leans further into the breeze, remembering the feel of strong arms surrounding him in a protective, sweet hold that seemed unable to be broken by anything.
He sighs with a smile, once more feeling the press of wet, salty lips against his, and raises a glass of rum. He used to have no more desire for the vile drink than he had had for Pirates, but Jack had changed more than his dislike and distrust of Pirates. He had changed everything. Will holds the bottle to the sun, to the sea, and most of all, to Jack and drinks heartily.
