It can only delay it for a little while...
The overwhelming wave of relief hit him almost as hard as the force with which the woman threw herself into his arms.
The woman who had marched into the underworld to save him. The woman who refused to give up on him. On their love.
There were no words, from either of them. Just pure emotion racing through their veins, telling them- no, screaming at them to hold on and never let go again.
The cold metal of the ring on Emma’s neck was pressed tightly between their bodies, connecting them with the promise of their future together. A promise made on a beautiful day under less than ideal circumstances. It hadn’t been a proposal, Killian had quickly assured her of that. Instead, it had been a request. “Bring her home to me.” is what he’d said. And so she had.
Their bodies swayed gently from side to side, as they found they were utterly incapable of staying steady on their feet. Emma’s fingers ran through the messy strands of his dark hair, pulling him impossibly closer into their embrace. Their eyes were shut tight while they both tried to process the immense feeling of happiness now that they found themselves in each other’s arms. She had no idea how long they’d been standing there. It felt like an eternity, yet it was not nearly long enough.
The first time she heard him speak again was when he whispered softly into her golden locks.
“Emma.” the crack in his voice was small but unmistakable. When she finally managed to pull back just far enough to look at him, foreheads still touching and mouths breathing the same air, she noticed the tears on his cheeks, and smiled through her own.
“Killian.” she softly exclaimed in something between a sigh and a laugh. Their next words were the only words on their mind in that moment. “I love you.”
“I love you too.”
Well look at that, my first drawing in forever AND my first fanfic ever to go along with it. I have Once Upon A Time to thank for this sudden spurt of creativity
‘’When I win your heart, and I will win it, it will not be because of any trickery. It will be because you want me.’’
‘’You’re glad to hear I had my heart broken?’’ ‘’If it can be broken, it means it still works.’’
‘’This woman… that broke your heart. Do you still love her?’’ ‘’Yes.’’

This is probably very confusing to someone who hasn't watched the show Once Upon A Time... In this fan theory, Emma Swan is literally giving Killian Jones her own heart, to protect it from turning dark because of a curse, and at the same time to save his life because his heart has somehow been crushed. Told you it wouldn't make sense to anyone outside of this fandom XD
It's been a while since I've uploaded anything here. I've discovered that I quite enjoy working with ink on paper. And of course the first thing I put on here when I'm back is fanart of another tv show pairing. Typical.
