Last chapter, guys! Thanks for everything and I'll soon write more stories. Here it goes!


The doctor that they had sent for explained that Katherine's faint was because of exhaustion and because of her pregnancy. Many were happy, but Jack still wasn't jumping up and down with joy. If Katie was pregnant, he thought, there's a chance that it could be Norrington's too.

Abigail noticed Jack's distress. "Jack," she said, quietly. "It's your child."

"What if it's not? Norrington told me what he did to her. That bastard," he scowled. "I should have let him die."

"She told me that he didn't get very far…"

"What if she was lying to you because of the shame?" he said, getting angry.

"Katie would never do that," she hissed. Jack scowled and looked away. "He was lying. I just hope you don't say that to her about the baby."

"It's not her fault, but why didn't he keep his mouth shut," he said, sadly. "Does she know yet?"

Abigail shook her head. "She's still out cold."

Jack sighed. "Don't let her find out. I'll tell her myself." He left and went to his cabin. When he opened the door Katherine was waking up. She looked up at him and smiled. "How are you?"

"Better," she whispered. "Lay with me, please."

Jack nodded and slid under the sheets, wrapping his arm around her. He gently kissed her head. "We're finally together again."

"And James?" she asked, fearfully.

Jack traced her lips. "He won't bother us again. Let's forget the awful things from the past. We have a future to think about."

Katherine smiled. "You're right." She was about to kiss him when the door knocked.

"Captain, Commodore Norrington is here to see you," yelled Mr. Gibbs through the door.

Katherine looked up at him and shook her head. "Don't…"

"I'm coming!" he yelled. He got up and then turned to Katherine. "I'll be right back."

As he headed up to the deck, he was stopped by Abigail again. "Did you tell her?"

Jack shook his head. "Not yet, but I have to ask him to get this doubt out of my head. Even if the child is not mine, my feelings for Katie won't change. I love her and I'll love her child as if it were me own," he said and then continued up the stairs to confront James.

He looked bruised and scratched up. He didn't have that glare in his eyes any more. Almost as if he found peace once again. "I only have a few words to exchange with you and I promise you'll never see me again," said James, looking around. Jack's entire crew surround James if any case he would attack, but Jack shrugged them off and they went to their stations. Jack nodded so that he could continue. "I want to thank you for saving my life and I apologize for all the harm I caused you. I also want to say that I lied. I never took advantage of Katie. I only said that to provoke you."

A huge relief went through Jack. He could finally be with Katherine with no one to stop them. "Thank you, Commodore. If it weren't for you, I would have never met Katie," he said, shaking his hand.

James smiled a bit. "Don't call me that anymore. I decided to renounce my position. I have bad memories of it. Take care of yourself, Jack, and Katie, too."

Jack nodded. "I will." He watched him leave and a smile burst on his face. He quickly went back to his cabin and caught Katherine by surprise when he picked her up and twirled her around.

"J-Jack, what…?"

He muted her with a kiss. "Katie, the doctor said you're having a baby!"

Katherine froze, but didn't share the smile. "J-Jack, I swear James never touched me. He tried, but I defended myself. If I'm expecting it's your child. If he would have gone the whole way, I wouldn't have gone back with you. You know me, Jack. I would have felt dirty and unworthy. James is lying. I'm not. I swear to God.

"No, Katie, don't cry," said Jack, wiping her tears. "I believe you. However, if he would have gone all the way, I would still love you and the child. I admit that I had my doubts, but Norrington told me the truth."

"He did?"

Jack nodded. "He apologized for everything. We can finally live happy, Katie, with this baby on the way, too." Katherine smiled and hugged him tightly. "I hope it's a girl, that way she'll have your eyes and smile."

Katherine laughed. "I'd prefer it'll be a boy with your stare and… well not your temper because he'll give me hell all the time."

Jack chuckled and kissed. "I think there's a wedding to be made."

Katherine looked at him curiously. "For whom?"

"For us."


Carmen grinned as she opened the door, seeing James without his uniform on nor his wig. "What can I do for you, Commodore Norrington?" she teased.

"Mister," he corrected. "As you can see, I renounced my title. I was wondering if you'll let me stay here while they sell my house and plantation… We can always move to Europe afterward…" He was silence by her finger.

"Are you asking me to marry you, James?" she asked with a smirk.

"You knew, didn't you?"

Carmen blushed. "Like if I don't read my own hand. I knew you were mine since the moment I laid eyes on you."

James stepped closer and cupped her face. "I-I love you."

She leaned into his hand. "So do I and our baby, too."

James flashed his blue eyes to her brown ones. "Really."

She smiled. "Yes."

He engulfed her into a kiss. He too was just as lucky to have found love and peace in his life.


The next day

Katherine grinned as she stood in front of Jack on the deck of the Black Pearl. Though he wasn't standing beside her, he was captain and like he promised when they were engaged, he was going to marry them on his beloved ship. After the marriage, they were going back to sea at last.

"Katie, do you accept me to be your pirate?" he asked.

Her grin grew wider. "Yes," she whispered.

"And do I, Captain Jack Sparrow, take ye as me woman?" He smirked at her. "You bet I do." Katherine giggled at his silliness. "I now pronounce us pirate and wife. I may kiss me wife." Jack pulled her to him and laid a kiss on her lips. They could hear the roar of his crew as they married again. She pulled away from his lips and smiled.

"Are we going to our honeymoon?" she teased.

Jack smirked. "Maybe a deserted beach, so that I can make love to you there."

"Jack," she said, blushing. She felt a tap on her shoulder and grinned, seeing her father. "Father," she said, hugging him.

"Katie, I heard you were expecting. I'm happy… for the both of you. I apologize for acting awful to you, Jack. You've made my daughter very happy and I know she's with the right man. Oh, and don't worry about your annulled marriage. I'll make sure it'll get fixed. Be happy," he said, softly, cupping his daughter's face.

"I'll miss you, Father," she whispered.

Weatherby nodded. "I'll miss you, too, but your place belongs here with your husband and I'll stay here." They gave each other one last hug and then Weatherby departed from the ship.

Katherine smiled as Jack twirled her back into his arms. "I want you to know that if Norrington wouldn't have told me…" He was cut off by Katherine's lips. "I would have felt the same for you and the baby."

She just smiled and kissed him again. "I know." She gently led him back into his cabin, closing the door behind them. Jack laid Katherine on the bed, hovering over here as she pushed his dreadlocks back.

"Nothing or no one will separate us again," he said, looking into her green eyes.

"Not even death," she said before kissing him. They both laughed as they let their passion consume. They were finally able to live happily ever after.
