Captain Swan Playlist Meme: Marry Your Daughter - Brian McKnight [listen here]
“Give me one good reason why I should give you my support.” James said in a completely serious tone. He stared at the forlorn yet determined ex-pirate in front of him as he mentally sized him up for any sign of ill intentions towards his precious daughter.
Killian did not say anything for a long time. “I could sugarcoat my feelings for her but it would only boil down to one thing—I love Emma very much. I always will. I will never find someone else like her. That’s all there is to it, really.” He finally spoke, and even James was astounded by the raw honesty in his fervent statement.
“But does she feel the same way about you?” James asked bluntly.
Killian surprised him yet again with his answer. “I don’t think she can love me as much as I love her, but I’m willing to compromise.” a look of unwavering adherence flickered in his eyes. “It’s a challenge I’m willing to partake. Besides, I love her enough for the both of us right now.”
James’ mouth curved into a smile as he reached over to shake Killian’s hand. “Don’t underestimate yourself, son.” Killian’s eyes widened at the familiar term. No one had called him son in a very long time.”I think Emma loves you very much, so if you hurt her in any way, you’re going to answer to me. And the rest of the kingdom.” He gave a slicing motion at his throat to emphasize his point. “Welcome to the family, Killian.”
