Chapter 9: The Tide is Changing

After Neal left, Emma stayed wrapped in Killian's arms. He had pulled her closer and she wasn't even sure what to say at this point. She admitted to Neal that she wanted Killian in her life, right in front of him. There was no way of knowing how the pirate would feel about that information. Deep down she knew that there was something more going on between them, but she was always afraid to voice it. Right now, she was grateful that Killian was holding her. He hadn't said a word; he just pulled her into his arms and held her. Something about that felt right to Emma. It was like he could tell that is what she needed right now, but sooner or later they were going to have to talk about what was going on between them, especially now that it is out in the open.

"Did you really mean that, love?" Killian asked, finally breaking the silence. When she looked up at him she saw something in his eyes she didn't really recognize as he began to stroke her cheek. Emma leaned into the touch and closed her eyes before she answered.

"Yes," her voice was quiet and she wasn't even sure she managed to speak loud enough for him to hear her. "I spent eleven years refusing to let people in, never trusting anyone, and keeping my walls up, but somehow with you I feel like it's okay to let go."

Honestly, Emma figured that he would likely run from her with those words. That was what she was used to, people running from her and pushing her away. The last thing she expected was for him to pull her closer and kiss her with a passion she never felt before. His lips moved against hers urgently as if it was the last kiss they would ever share. She wrapped her arms around his neck, pulling him closer to deepen the kiss. His hand tangled in her hair as he let his tongue slip into her mouth. Emma's knees started to feel weak again, but this time it was because of the kiss. She pulled Killian closer to her as they both pulled away from the kiss to catch their breath.

"I have a confession to make, love," Killian stated, still panting. "I stopped going after the crocodile a week ago."

"What?" Emma asked confused. "But you had tried to leave a few times and I even caught you on your ship."

"Because I wanted you to stop me," Killian replied. "I knew that if I pretended to continue to go after the crocodile then you would stop me, but the truth is, being here with you made me forget about my revenge. Suddenly, it's not the most important thing to me anymore. I just wanted to be with you."

Emma was speechless, she had no idea that she could make him forget about something he had been planning for 300 years. At first she figured that the seducing would work for a little while, but eventually it wouldn't be enough and there would have been nothing she could do to stop him. Now he was telling her that he already forgot his revenge, because of her.

"You gave up your revenge to be here with me?" she asked.

"Emma, I haven't been with another woman since Milah," Killian confessed. "After she died I swore I would never let another woman near me again. Not physically or emotionally. Then you kissed me and everything changed. All I wanted was you and right now it's still all I want."

Emma didn't really know what to say, she hadn't lived as long as he had, but she understood what he meant. Part of that terrified her, but she had pushed people away for so long and she was tired of feeling like she was meant to be alone. The only time she felt like someone else belonged with her was when she was with him. So she leaned up and kissed him softly and slowly, wanting to convey how she felt through her actions.

Killian kissed her back not pushing for anything more right now. All he wanted was to feel her lips on his. It felt right. A feeling he never thought he would feel with another woman again. Now Emma was here and she was bringing back feelings he had once refused to let take over again. This time he wanted to give into them. He wanted to know where this could go, because Emma made him forget his anger and for the first time in 300 years he actually felt happy.

With a smirk Emma backed Killian up to the couch and pushed him down into the sitting position before straddling his hips. He was clearly surprised but recovered quickly with a smirk before he pulled her back into the kiss, nipping her bottom lip lightly. She smiled against his lips and began to roll her hips against his, eliciting a gasp and then groan from him. Without another thought she tugged at his shirt and pulled it off him before tossing it in the corner as she leaned back in to kiss him hungrily. She rolled her hips against his again letting a moan escape her lips as she ghosted her fingers down his chest before reaching down to unbutton his jeans.

"Emma," Killian whispered, stopping Emma from going any further at the moment. "This isn't just about sex to me. It's much more than that. I need you to know that."

Emma smiled, stroking his cheek. "I know. I feel the same way." She said leaning in to kiss him softly. He moved his hand behind her neck and pulled her closer, deepening the kiss but keeping it slow. This wasn't like all the other times. There was something different between them and neither of them wanted to rush it, though every time she was with him she had a difficult time controlling herself.

Killian moved his hand down to her shoulder, pushing the light fabric of her robe off to expose more of her skin to him. She shrugged out of the thin robe before moving both of her hands behind his neck and pulling him into another searing kiss while rolling her hips into his once again. Killian groaned moving his hook arm behind her back and pulling her body closer so he could feel her skin against his. He moved his hand back behind her neck as he deepened the kiss before trailing a line of kisses down her jaw and neck.

"Killian," Emma sighed smiling at how good it felt to have his lips on her skin. She could feel her need for him growing again and went back to unbuttoning his jeans. His hand began to make its way down her shoulder and back before resting at her hip. When she finally got his hard desire free she wrapped her hand around it firmly eliciting a sharp gasp from him. She grinned seductively before aligning herself over him and sinking down slowly.

"Gods, Emma," Killian groaned as his head fell back against the couch. Even though this wasn't exactly the first time they were like this, somehow it felt more intense. As Emma began to rock her hips against his, an unrestrained moan escaped her lips. He growled and pulled her into another fierce kiss attempting to stifle his own moans. Killian began to match Emma's movements and he knew it wouldn't be long until he reached his peak.

"Killian," Emma moaned pulling away from his lips as she began to rock her hips more insistently. "Oh God," She could feel her climax approaching quickly and though she wanted this moment to last, she knew she wasn't going to be able to stop herself. She was close and by the look on Killian's face he was too. Just as she felt her orgasm unfurl, Killian's hand tightened on her hip and groaned his release with her. She clung to Killian as her body started to tremble as each wave of pleasure passed through her body.

This was the part that Killian enjoyed the most, watching as Emma lost all control over her body as the pleasure washed over her. It gave him a certain amount of pride knowing he caused that. He held her close to him reveling in the way she trembled in his arms and began to leave light kisses from her collarbone to her neck. As the trembling began to subside he moved his hand up to cup her cheek and kissed her lips softly. "I love you."

Emma looked him in the eyes when he said that. They were three words she had been afraid of for so long, but hearing him say them to her felt right. Just like everything else about him and her being together. She never realized why being with him, even when she told herself it was just sex, felt like where she belonged. Now she realized it was because she loved him too. She grinned and kissed him deeply before replying. "I love you too."
