Disclaimer: I don't own it... sorry to dissapoint.
A/N: this totally just sprung on me it wasn't even planned if you like it tell me :) I'm sure if I had worked longer and harder this would've been a bit or a WHOLE lot better but I like it as it is. Leave me some luv!
Jack jumped as Elizabeth shouldered her way into his cabin. What is she doing here? Jack wondered. He had already been having a hard time being back on the Pearl with her he didn't understand why she wouldn't just leave him alone and go bother her fiancé. Even in his thoughts the word came out dripping with resentment and venom.
"Go away." There he thought maybe she will for once get the hint and listen to me.
She looked shocked, "but Jack I haven't even said-"
"Lizzie," He sighed, obviously she wasn't going to take the hint "What do you want?"
"Well...I needed... and you..."she stuttered
"You're not making any sense at all"
She stopped talking.
He started nodding his head and said in a making voice dripping with sarcasm said "Well this was an enlightening waste of my time now would you please step out of my cabin?" He felt torn he wanted her to stay but knew that it would lead to other things.
He also knew that the consequences for said things would probably be bad for both of them. Either a furious pansy, an equally furious Elizabeth, to whom that fury would be focused on Jack thought would probably him, or a heartbroken pirate. For once he decided to play it safe and just try to make her leave but, that wasn't working very well.
She looked like she was fighting a battle within. Finally she made up her mind and her face turned unreadable.
"No, I will most certainly not" As she said this she started swaying rather seductively toward his chair. But before she sat down Jack reached out and took hold of her upper arm.
"Do not tempt me Lizzie, now be a good girl-" he started moving her towards the door "and leave or I..."
She interrupted him "Or what? What would the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow do? There is only one thing that comes to mind that a pirate would do to a pretty lady like me, who he has in his cabin alone. But, you seem ever so reluctant to do. No matter how tough you say you are you would never strike me of that I'm sure. So, whatever you have in mind bring it on."
Jack had let her go and turned in the middle of her speech and was facing his bed now. "Lizzie, It's not that easy, love" He said raking his hands over his face, his shoulders sagging.
"How would you know? You haven't even tried!" She accused
He spun around "Haven't tried? Haven't tried? Lizzie-"
"Don't call me that. You only call me that when you want something like mar-ee-age." She smirked. "What happened to that Jack I knew? The one who wasn't even afraid to propose even if it was a ludicrous proposal you knew I wouldn't accept? Hmmmmmm? What happened to him?"
He looked strait at her his expression unreadable absolutely nothing betraying emotion except for the coldness of his voice "He died."
She stood shocked, speechless, and utterly beaten.
After a moment of silence she nodded and then trying to escape the silence turned to leave the room. Her hand had reached the door knob when she heard Jack say almost reluctantly "You don't have to go... I mean I do enjoy your company I just..."
She was no longer paying attention. She had crossed the room and was now standing right in front of him.
"Prove it." Was all she said.
Jack evasive nature kicked in. "Prove what?"
She leaned in closer so she was practically talking into his mouth. "That you enjoy my company"
He could tell she was trying to be as persuasive as she could and he knew he wanted this just as much as if not more. But, in the morning when something happened or even if something didn't happen she would leave when they docked at Port Royal and leave him behind for her new life with Will. So if he did anything now she would be attached to him and he to her and neither of them would be happy. It would be a bloody mess He thought. He inwardly sighed and almost gave in but his formerly rarely shown conscience reminded him to stop. He was trying so hard to be the good man she wanted him to be but she just wasn't making it easy for him.
Finally he said "I just can't Elizabeth, I'm sorry I just can't" He lied and reluctantly pulled away from her.
She looked at him and for the first time he saw pain in her eyes. He felt awful for hurting her but, he would've felt worse had she left him... which she was going to end up doing anyway. Jack watched as she nodded and walked towards the door but, as she turned the turned the door knob, attempting for the second time to leave the room she also stopped for the second time turning and with no emotion whatsoever in her voice said "Well then Captain Sparrow I'm sorry that I Can't not marry Will."
Jack felt his heart shatter.
A/N: I have like, only posted what are IMO sad, angsty stories I'm think I may add a chapter to this one too make it a bit happier but that depends on reviews so If you think I should I may do it ;) but I also know that if I did it would be awhile seeing as this is not one I have been working on therefore I don't know how it would end so it may be awhile oh well shrugs if you like it that much you will tell me and I might reward those people with another chapter. ;)
V click it and review :D
