Rating: PG
Word count: 100
Pairings or characters involved: Jake/Stephen
Character(s) to give rum to: The Powder Monkeys! (Come on lads, keep posting!)
Author and notes: An answer to Sword challenge.


Jack wondered how such a prodigiously intelligent man could be so bloody hard to reason with. How could he not understand something that seemed so simple to an unlearned sailor?

There were many times when he could barely resist the urge to strike his dearest friend. He would be filled with an almost overwhelming desire to beat Stephen about he head with the flat of a sword, a little gilt chair or whatever else was at hand.

But that was no way to win an argument. Neither was the desire that now overcame him.

He found himself kissing Stephen anyway.

::guffaws:: lord, I forgot all about the gilt chair of the first book, and Jack's desire to do not-quite-so-nice things to Stephen with it...

ain't that the way, though. you're fecking annoyed, and you end up kissing them anyway.

That's one of my favourite scenes so far. I rally can't see Jack having much use for something so wussy other than to beat people up with.
