Summary: Whilst looking through an old tea set, flirtations arise~!


Stealing from him was impossible…

"Wow! Arthur, these are beautiful!"

"Of course; the Seven Seas declared my treasures the most coveted beauties."

Observing the tea-set with admiring eyes, you bent over to steal a closer look. Intricate floral designs complimented the elegant cloth they were perched upon. The glass securing them reflected your lover's ardent green gaze; he was always with you. Arthur placed his hand on your shoulder, leaning forward with you.

"This one is my favorite," he declared, "see the fairy in the petals?"

"Yes!" Your enthusiasm made him beam with pride. "It's a wonder these survived."

Lifting an eyebrow, Arthur grinned. "What kind of pirate would I be if I allowed my treasure the opportunity to be damaged or stolen? I always secure that which is precious to me." He cast you a glance and you tilted your head inquiringly. How did he manage to protect such? Arthur elaborated, "My treasures are with me at all times."

A wry expression crept onto your lips. "So you take your treasure everywhere with you?"

Snorting on a chuckle, Arthur boasted, "Precisely! So long as my treasure is with me, no one will touch it; especially not that foppish twit of a Frog. When your most treasured possessions are the envy of the world, you need to keep them by your side at all times." You nodded, returning to your appreciation of the display.

"You must adore your treasure to protect it so keenly," you laughed.

Shivers caressed you as Arthur's arms slid around your waist from behind. Your heart fluttered as you turned to look at him. Arthur smirked, pressing his lips against the back of your neck.

"There's a reason why I never let you out of my sight, love."

yes, Arthur Kirkland was a pirate, through and through.
