Preserved

Title: Preserved
Author: cruisedirector
Rating: PG
Word count: 100
Characters: Killick, Jack/Stephen
Rum to: Killick!


There were things that Killick saw, as Jack Aubrey's steward, but never mentioned. Rips in the captain's uniform, blood on his sleeve, and there might have been complaining but there would be no questions. The scent that wafted from Jack's handkerchief and the stains on his breeches simply disappeared.

So Killick must have known, Jack mused, very nearly the day it began, reading Jack's clothing the way Stephen had read Jack's flushed face and fluttering pulse. Yet when, years later, he thanked the man, indirectly, for his long silence, Killick only grumbled, claiming to have forgotten each and every time.
