Drabble: "Red Handed"

One hundred words written for this week’s drabble challenge at blackpearlsails: “Jig”

A hint of Jack/Beckett, which probably disqualify it from actually being posted to blackpearlsails. Oops! Unless the non-slash rule is more like a guideline...? ;)

Red Handed

A blade taps his wrist, an inch away from the prize, and Jack knows the jig is up.

“Sparrow…” Cultured, sardonic. Horribly familiar. “Where’s my cargo?”

He turns with a winning smile. “Misplaced, as it were.”

“How unfortunate. For you.”

Fingertips dance seduction along the flat of the blade, provoking a flare of suppressed heat in Beckett’s eyes. Jack smiles. “What say you to a trade, mate?”

“A trade?”

“This here Letter of Marque…” Deftly, he picks it up. “In exchange for what you want most in the world.”

“Which is?”

Jack’s expression turns devilish, purposefully sinful. “Me, of course.”
