Disclaimer: I still don't own the extremely handsome Jack Sparrow. Disney is still borrowing him.

AN: It's official. This is the last chapter of "Love on the High Seas!" There will be a part three, though it might be shorter, depending on whether my creativity will be able to work between homework loads! Wish me luck, but don't look for a new story before the weekend. Check back Sunday, okay? Now enjoy this last chapter!

Epilogue: Departing:

Two days after the wedding, Jack and Lara were departing on the Black Pearl. Lara didn't know where they were going, but whenever she asked Jack, he simply smiled at her and changed the subject. She hated it when he did that, but remembered that most of the time, his surprises were good (the only exception was his kidnapping her, but that had turned out alright in the end).

The two of them now stood on the deck of the Pearl, saying goodbye to their friends. Jack was talking with Will while Lara hugged Elizabeth goodbye.

"I'm going to miss you being so close by," Elizabeth sniffed as she hugged her friend.

Lara sniffed, too. "I'm going to miss it, too." She pulled away a little, looking Elizabeth in the eye. "But Jack and I will be visiting as often as we can. After all, we can go wherever we want."

Elizabeth smiled a little. "Ah, yes, the famous freedom of the seas," she said. She grabbed Lara in another hug. "Take care of yourself, Lara. Don't let Jack turn you into a complete pirate."

Lara gave a small chuckle before they finally let go of each other. Jack, having finished his chat with Will, came up behind his wife and wrapped her in his arms.

"Well, me lovely wife," he said smiling. "Are ye ready to leave?"

Lara nodded. She walked Will and Elizabeth to their small rowboat, giving them one last hug. "We'll be back in a few months," she said, a few tears escaping her eyes.

Elizabeth silently nodded and let Will help her into the boat. The crew lowered them into the water, and the two slowly rowed to shore, Elizabeth turning and waving every once and a while. As Lara waved back, Jack came up behind her and put his arms around her once more.

"Don't worry, luv," he said. "We'll be back to see 'em soon. Probably when they're ready to have a young Turner."

Lara chuckled. "That's very likely. I've noticed Elizabeth being a bit moodier than usual, so that young one might arrive sooner than expected. I wish I could be here to see Will's face when she tells him about it."

The two of them looked at each other and laughed. Finally, Jack turned her dragged her down to their cabin. Once the door had been closed and locked behind them, he turned her to face him and gave her a deep kiss. After they broke apart, Jack simply stared at her for several moments. Lara looked up at him, puzzlement showing on her face.

"Jack? What's wrong?"

He smiled. "Nothin's wrong, luv," he said, touching her face. "I'm just lookin' at ye, that's all."

She smiled at him. "You are so sweet. I didn't think pirates could be so flattering."

Jack chuckled. "Aye, lass, we pirates can flatter yer brains out if we want to." He suddenly turned sober. "But if any other man tries anything on ye, I'll rip his tongue out."

Lara gave a small laugh. "I'll hold you to that, Jack." She leaned in close to him and laid her head on his chest, letting his arms settle around her.

"Don't ye worry, me lovely wife." He smiled; he loved calling her his wife. "If anyone wants to get ye, they'll have to get through me." Suddenly, he grinned and swiped her up into his arms.

Lara squeaked in protest. "Jack, put me down!" She saw him carrying her towards the bed. "It's too early for this!"

Jack gave laugh before laying her down on the bed. "Fer a pirate, lass, it's never too early!"

Lara gave a small smile before rolling her eyes. "I yield to your superior pirate logic."

Jack smirked. "I knew ye would," he said, leaning over her and giving her a passionate kiss.

Nothing more was said between them for the rest of the day.


That night, Jack stood at the bow of the ship, his slightly disheveled wife in his arms, the salty sea air washing over them. His chin rested on her shoulder, and her head leaned against his. They were lucky that the crew was busy down below having a small party.

After several moments of silence, Lara spoke. "Jack, where exactly are we going?"

Jack smiled down at her. "Anywhere and everywhere, lass," he replied. "The world is open to us."

"You know, I've always wanted to visit Singapore," Lara said, smirking at the ocean.

Jack looked at his wife in surprise before breaking into laughter. He finally dragged her below to join the crew's party, their new lives just beginning.


AN: Okay, it's short, but it's an epilogue after all. I'll get started on part three as soon as I can, but school sucks, so just bear with me and be patient. I love you all! And thanks for all of the great reviews! I never thought I'd get over 80! You guys rock!
