"D'you ever miss it?"

James's voice floated across the rooftop. He was stretched out in a hammock, while Elizabeth and Will lounged on a pile of pillows they had brought up from the parlor, to the horror of the housekeeper. Jack flitted between the two and was in charge of replenishing the drinks from the liquor cabinet below.

The usual rivalries and fighting had been suspended in deference to the spirit of the season and the four had decided to spend Christmas at James's large house, because when you got right down to it, they were all bonded closer than family and really, who else would they want to spend a day of good cheer with?

"Miss what?" Elizabeth asked sleepily. The day was fine and they had retired to the roof after a large luncheon.

"Christmas in jolly ol' England, snow everywhere, the smell of pine trees and a crackling fire."

"Mm, not any more. I did the first few years after we came here, but I think I was missing mother more than anything."

"I don't," Will said definitively. "The snow was pretty at first, but mum wouldn't ever let me go out and play in it, especially not at Christmas."

"Well, I don't know about England, but I remember one Christmas in Philadelphia. . ." Jack began.

James rolled his eyes at the amusing-but-certainly-embellished tale that the pirate told, but then he lay back in the hammock and smiled. This, certainly, was what Christmas was supposed to be about.

"It's not what you expected, is it?"

The man being addressed looked up quickly and tensed, one hand straying towards the inside of his coat.

The speaker held up his hands placatingly, in the universal gesture of "I mean you no harm," and seated himself on the rock beside the first man.

"No, it is not," the first man agreed, returning his gaze over the choppy grey ocean. "I knew some people, once, who were willing to give everything they had for immortality. If they only knew." He shook his head. "Bloody pirates."

The first speaker quirked a half smile and considered his companion. "Royal Navy?" he hazarded. The accent was definitely British, and there was an underlying trace that positively screamed 17th or 18th century.

The other man nodded, and his gaze became even more distant. "Spent most of that life chasing down pirates. And other things you couldn't possibly imagine." He shuttered, dark memories surfacing.

"Oh I don't know about that. I've got a pretty good imagination. I'm Adam, by the way."

The other man considered the outstretched hand carefully for a moment before shaking it.

"James. So tell me, Adam, have you ever heard of Jack Sparrow?"
