The Long Kiss Goodbye by lorddarke1
"Damn you Jacob Bly! I've not laid eyes on you for over a year! When at last I find you you're about to be devoured by that horror that took my father!"
Bly takes her into his arms. "I know, my love. A more timely rescue you could not have made."
"Shhhh, it's over, Ulysa." He gently knuckles the tears from her eyes. "Thanks to you and your crew I'm still alive, and your new weapon will bring an end to the monster's rule forever!"
