Lucy opened her eyes. She sat up only to feel massive pain where her wound is. "It's ok Lucy" Michael said helping her sit up. Lucy was sitting there in a shirt and panties. She had bandage around her stomach where her wound is. Michael gave her a hug. "I am glad you're ok." The door opened. Marcus walked in.

"Glad to see you're still the tough girl, I know. Well done captain." Marcus said. The door opened once more as the admiral walked in.

"I have some news. We have discovered documents and letters from Captain Augustus to Alejandro. He will hang later today."

"Wow…" Marcus said. Michael wasn't surprised.

"Well done Captain Lucy." The admiral said.

"Thank you admiral" Lucy said slightly nervous.

"No, ma'am thank you. Also, I came here to offer you a promotion, a promotion to Commodore." The admiral said.

"I have to say no admiral." Lucy said. Everyone in the room was is some degree of shock. The admiral noted how Lucy and Michael were holding each other's hand. He chuckled.

"I see. I take it you wish to remain captain aboard Commodore Michael's ship?" the admiral asked.

"If he will have me" Lucy said looking at Michael's eyes.

"Of course" Michael said. Marcus gave a salute and exited the room.

"Before I go, I have one more thing. Come in." the admiral said. The door opened and Charles walked in carrying a small box with a nurse, an attractive nurse, behind him. And behind her was Luce. Charles handed the admiral the box. The admiral brought it in front of Michael and Lucy and opened it. "This medal here is the Medal of Honor. You have earned this captain." The admiral stated proudly. Luce walked up hugging her sister. Tears streamed down her face. Luce was lost at words what to say, but her expression spoke volumes.

"Charles?" Lucy asked.

"Yes captain?" Charles replied.

"I am glad to see you again. Is that my nurse?" Lucy asked. The nurse shook her head.

"Oh well you see…" Charles turned red. The nurse bent down a little kissing Charles on the cheek.

"Oh, Charles…" Lucy said full of pride. Luce stood up wiping her tears and gave her sister a smile. She exited the room followed by Charles and his girlfriend. The admiral gave a salute then exited. Michael let go of Lucy's hand trying to stand up. "Where do you think you're going?" Lucy said.

"So you can get some rest."

"Michael… do you love?" Lucy asked fear in her eyes.

"What?! Of course."

"Really?" her expression unchanged.

"Yes, I love you."

"Then stay here." She said not letting go of his hand. He smiled and sat back down.

"Of course my love." he bent down and kissed her on the lips.

"You promise to be here while I sleep and when I wake."

"Yes" Michael said lying down next to her wrapping his arms around her bringing her close. Lucy started blushing. The snuggled together, with only each other on their mind.
