Disclaimer: I still don't own the extremely handsome Jack Sparrow. Disney is still borrowing him for Pirates of the Caribbean II.

AN: This is the third part of the Servant Girl series. People asked for it, so here it is! I hope that people won't be mad if this is shorter than the first two. Time restrictions and stuff like that happens. Well, hope you enjoy it!

Chapter 1: Reflections and Visitations:

Lara stood at the bow of the Black Pearl, gazing out over the ocean. The setting sun made the usually crystal blue water look like liquid gold; pirate gold.

Lara chuckled at that last part. Pirate gold indeed. Jack would be proud of her thinking like that. The two of them had been married for just over two years now, and it still felt like only yesterday Lara had been serving the Governor's daughter.

Her eyes glazed over at the thought of her former mistress. The last time she had seen Will and Elizabeth was when their little son, William Turner III (or Billy, so as not to confuse him with his father) had been born six months after Jack and Lara had gotten married. After receiving word of the pregnancy, Lara had insisted on staying close to Port Royal so as not to miss the birth. In fact, Lara had made sure that she was at least two weeks early so she could help Elizabeth. Jack had wanted to send the crew to Tortuga until the arrival, but they really wanted to be there for the event. Besides, the small "treaty" between Governor Swann and Jack still stood: Jack and his crew would not be arrested or imprisoned while they were in Port Royal, unless they committed a crime. After making sure that the crew would look "respectably decent" when in town, and that they remained on the ship at night, Jack agreed to let the crew stay.

The day of the birth was typical. Elizabeth screamed her lungs out while Lara kept her company and the men (Will, Jack, and the Governor) waited outside. Jack was the one who had kept the father and grandfather-to-be calm during the birth by doing what he did best: get them slightly drunk. It actually worked. When Lara came out to tell them that it was a boy, Will and the Governor actually seemed slightly sane (even though both fainted when they were told that they were actually a father and grandfather). When he had been born, little Billy had his father's dark eyes, but his mother's light brown hair, and promised to be as stubborn and fiery as his mother as well. Will and Elizabeth would have their hands full with that little one. Jack had commented that he'd make an excellent pirate before Elizabeth threatened to smack him for jinxing the boy for life.

Lara sighed. She felt bad for not giving Jack a child yet, but he simply smiled and said they had all the time in the world to raise a ship full of pirates-to-be. Lara wasn't sure whether or not he was joking, but she still felt bad. Still, they were young and healthy, so technically there was nothing to worry about. She just wished she could have given Jack a small Sparrow to dote on. She sighed again.

"What's wrong, luv?" came a voice as a pair of arms wrapped around her.

Lara smiled as she leaned back. "I'm just thinking, Jack, that's all."

Jack frowned. "I know yer only thinkin' about one thing when ye sigh, luv." He grabbed her chin and made her look at him. "We've got time to have little ones, luv, don't worry."

Lara's eyes were sad as she looked up at him. "I know, it's just-" Jack's lips on hers cut off her sentence.

A moment later, he reluctantly broke the kiss. "I told ye not to worry, and I mean it," he said softly. His eyes suddenly brightened. "Why don't we visit Will and Elizabeth? It's been a year and a half since we've seen them and that boy of theirs; we can check and see if they're still alive!"

Lara laughed. "Between the two of them, I think they can handle him." She smiled up at him. "That would be wonderful, Jack. I'd love to see what the boy looks like now."

Her husband nodded. "Alright, I'll tell the crew and we'll head there right now!" He gave her a quick kiss before going to talk to Annamaria at the helm and the crew below decks.

Lara sighed as her gaze returned to the sea. "Port Royal, here we come."

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

The Pearl arrived near Port Royal ten days later. Lara looked like she was going to jump off of the boat and swim to shore before they docked. Her husband just laughed at her impatience as the crew readied a rowboat for Jack and Lara to take to shore.

"Are ye sure ye don't want to go to Tortuga fer a while, Gibbs?" Jack asked his second mate. "We might be here a while."

Mr. Gibbs shook his head. "We'll be fine, cap'n," he said. "We need some time to get our land-legs back anyway." The rest of the crew grinned.

Lara's eyes widened. "Oh, no," she said, shaking her finger at them. "No troublemaking! I don't want to have to bail anyone out of the prison anytime soon!"

The rest of the crew put on innocent faces. "Now would we do anythin' like that, Mrs. Sparrow?" asked Mr. Gibbs, a small grin on his face.

Lara just snorted. "If I remember correctly, Mr. Gibbs, I had to smuggle you away from a market because of an incident involving you, some rum, and a cart full of apples." The rest of the crew chuckled as Mr. Gibbs blushed.

Jack laughed. "And a good time that was, too. I don't think the apple market was the same that year!" Everyone laughed as Jack and Lara were lowered into the water and waved as they rowed to shore.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

An hour later, the two Sparrows were knocking on the front door of the Turner home. The cottage looked like an addition had been added on for the new arrival, and a few toys were in the front yard, but it still looked basically the same. Jack knocked on the door and waited. A somewhat flustered Elizabeth answered the door. Her eyes widened in shock.

"Lara? Jack?" She quickly grabbed the two in tremendous hugs before herding them inside. Once the two were seated in the parlor, Elizabeth had a maid bring them tea. Jack sniffed at the tea before drinking it. Elizabeth laughed. "Sorry, Jack, but with a baby in the house, there's no rum here for you to drink."

Jack shrugged. "I can always help myself on the Pearl, lass, don't worry." At that moment, an adorable little boy waddled into the room, sucking his thumb.

Lara smiled. "Well, hello, aren't you sweet?" she cooed. The boy simply smiled and walked over to her before stretching his arms out to her. Lara swept him up and began playing with him while Elizabeth frowned.

"Billy, how did you get away from your father?" Elizabeth asked the boy. At that moment a panic-stricken Will raced in.

"Oh, there you are!" he said, racing over and snatching up his son. Will looked sternly at the boy. "Don't you ever do that again!" The baby simply giggled.

"Will, you're supposed to be watching him!" Elizabeth scolded.

"I was," her husband protested. "He just got away from me, that's all." The baby giggled again.

Elizabeth shook her head. "I'm putting him down for his nap," she said, taking her son. "Why don't you entertain Jack and Lara for a while?" She walked upstairs.

Will dropped down into a chair and sighed. "Thank heaven!"

Lara chuckled. "And I thought you'd be happy having a family!"

Will glared at her. "You just wait until you have children, then I'll be the one laughing."

Jack smiled. "Don't worry, whelp, we're just buying our time."

Will snorted before his smiled. "So how is everyone?"

Lara smiled. "Everyone on the Pearl is fine. Gibbs is still a bit superstitious about having women onboard, but I think Annamaria and I are wearing him down."

"Aye," said Jack. "I'd love to see his expression when we start having little Sparrows onboard!" The three of them laughed.

"So what's new around here?" Lara asked, finishing off her tea.

Will sobered quickly. "Well, you remember Thomas Pierce?"

Jack's eyes narrowed. "What about him?" His hand inched towards his sword.

Will sighed. "The doctors say he's stuck and needs someone to help and jog his memory back into action," he said. "Unfortunately, Thomas' family is too poor to travel here from England, and his friends among the sailors are out at sea most of the time." Will looked over at Lara.

Jack angrily shook his head. "No, Will," he said. "I can't let her do it."

"But she has to," Will protested. "She's his only hope for getting his memory back."

Jack glared at him. "And when he remembers who she is, and who I am?" he asked. "What then? What happens when he wants her all over again?"

Will shook his head. "The two of you are married now, Jack," he said. "Thomas can't break the two of you up without destroying that 'treaty' you and the Governor made and putting people in danger."

Lara sighed. "He's right, Jack. Even if he did remember, he couldn't take me away without endangering innocent people. That's not his way."

Jack frowned. "So yer goin' to visit him?"

Lara smiled sadly. "I have to. I still feel terrible about my being the cause of his illness."

Jack sighed. "Fine, we'll go tomorrow, but if he tries anythin', I'll gut him meself!"

Lara smiled and took his hand. "I wouldn't have it any other way."
