Triumphant Return by 6SeaCat9 Triumphant Return by 6SeaCat9
"We're almost there..." Jeffery said, grinning happily and taking Charlotte's hand. Charlotte grinned in return and embraced him.

"I can't believe it... we made it!" she said, teary eyed. Jeffery looked at Garin, who watched the two.

"I still don't know how I can ever thank you," he said. Garin's ears drooped in guilt.

“Actually… Jeff, Charlotte…” Garin said as he sighed and sat down. “I… haven’t been totally honest with you two. I did want to help you, once I heard of your situation, but… it was only part of the reason. The other part--”

“You wanted to get back at my father, for hurting your friend.” Charlotte finished for him, and Garin looked at her.

“You… knew?” he asked.

“Yes… after I met miss Ann, and saw her attending your first mate.” Charlotte said, turning and taking Jeffery’s hand. “After my father forbid me from seeing Jeff again… I overheard him… bragging, about stabbing a close friend of yours. That’s why I was afraid of you when I saw you at my window. I thought you had come to… Well, but now I realize you’re not the same kind of person my father is.”

“Indeed,” said Jeffery. “We owe you everything, most of all our future.”

“Just don’t expect him to collect any time soon,” came a voice, and Garin turned around, giving a joyful start.

“Jacques!!” he exclaimed as he stood. Jacques walked forward with Ann as support, though he kept one arm on the railing to take some of the weight off her shoulder. The Kyrii gave his best friend a smirk.

“Couldn’t let you hog all the glory,” he said as the two-shook hands.

“Great to see you on your feet, mate!” Garin said, grinning from ear to ear as the crew gathered to see a, mostly, recovered Jacques. Ann guided Jacques to where Garin had been previously seated, then helped him to sit.

“Take it easy now, tough guy… you’re not completely well yet, you know,” she said. Jacques smiled at her, then closed his eyes and took in a deep breath.

“Ah! That sweet, sea air!” he said. “I sure missed it!”

“Jacques,” Garin said as Charlotte and Jeffery walked over. “This is Jeffery Baines, and the soon-to-be Mrs. Baines, Charlotte.” Jacques shook hands with Jeffery.

“I’ve heard about you both from Ann,” he said. “Congratulations.”

“Thank you, sir.” Jeff said, looking at Charlotte, who frowned and averted her gaze to the ground.

“I… I can only say I’m sorry,” she said. “About what my father did to you…”

Jacques gave a smile. “Hey, you raise your kids to be good sea folk, and we’ll call it even!”

Everyone laughed at the friendly comment, and Garin smiled as he looked out to the horizon. Their destination was closing in slowly but surely, and as the crew talked with the soon-to-be newly weds, Garin couldn’t help but wonder… what their next destination might be.

~~~
FIN!

That's it for that mini-picture-story thing I had going! Happy ending for all! Hope you enjoyed it!
