Title: May the road rise up to meet you
Authors: Laura H
Rating: PG
Characters: Jack, Teague
Disclaimer: The Mouse Owns All.
Author's Note: 100 words, written tenuously for the blackpearlsails prompt 'Tea'. Set in the Redux universe.



Teague had toasted him when last they parted. Drunk, though none but Jack could tell.

Words rasped in his father’s scarce used tongue. May the wind always be at your back.

“And what of the first line, mate?” Jack’d asked.

“Choose your road, Jackie,” the old man had said. “Don’t let it choose you.”

Choice made, the toast sounds empty now; God opened his hand, it seems, but dropped the prize.

Dusk approaches and Jack thinks of another toast. May you be in Heaven half an hour before the Devil knows you're dead.

He wonders if it’ll take that long.
