Unmoving

Title: Unmoving
Author: cruisedirector
Rating: PG
Word count: 100
Characters: Stephen/(Jack)
Rum to: The Cabin Boys!


In the portrait Jack stands straight, with a cannon at his side and a sword in his hand. The likeness of the features is impressive, yet Stephen hardly knows the unsmiling admiral posed like all the other stiff heroes on gallery walls.

"He must have been a great officer," the boy at his side enthuses. Stephen hides a small frown, not wishing to give the appearance of contradiction. Yet this painting does not show Jack playing music, lunging into the wind, leaping from snakes, laughing at his own jokes; the man Stephen knew, the man his grandson will never know.
