I third that motion its very interesting !
Hearing the sounds of crews working on the decks, was nothing new to Holly as she began to rise. She immediately knew the ship she was on also. The Black Pearl. Some pirates whispered that it was a gift from Davy Jones when Jack became a pirate lord. Only a handful of pirates in the know (most are dead now) know the real truth of the Black Pearl. Jack made a deal with Davy Jones, one of the foulest deeds Captain Jack Sparrow ever did. Davy cursed the pearl to be an unsinkable ship buy any ships on the seas at that time. (explains why the Kracken sunk the pearl) So when you have a benefactor such as Davy Jones why dislike the bloke??? This is really beginning to not make sense thought Holly. She rouse, what can only be Captain Sparrows quarters. Near the rear, facing toward the aft of the ship was a grand desk. To the left of the charts table, a globe. She got out of bed and noticed her clothes were still on. Thank goodness, that could be something interesting, to be explaining to her mother. How she ends up on the Black Pearl with no clothes on. She got to her feet and noticed the ships sounds weren't of urgency. She went to the door and opened it. "Ahhh, top of the day to ye Holly." said a smiling Hector Barbossa. Wow how many pirates do you get to meet sailing with Captain Jack Sparrow?? Apparently just about all of them thought Holly. "Mr. Barbossa could you please tell me where we are and good day sir.??" Barbossa looked at Holly like she were a treasure herself to be had. " We be three days out from shipwreck cove missy, ye been asleep for two days. Now excuse me i need to be above on the main deck." Barbossa winked at her and began to walk towards the stairs that were around the corner. "Thank you Mr. Barbossa." Holly said as he was about to turn up the stairs. He stopped and nodded somewhat with a look back and then continued up the stairs. Holly next turned towards he affects. Where are my affects?? My personal items. They were all on the chair at the desk. Strange i didn't notice them before being there. Holly began to put her affects on when she notced to the left on the charts table three words. Isla de Muerta. Holly went cold and just stared....
Nice! Love this story Molly!
What on earth could Captain Jack Sparrow be doing going after that thrice cursed island. The island nobody can find except those who already know where it is. The rumors on Tortuga for sure must be true. The good Captain has flipped his hat. There is only one reason any pirate would go there. The great Conquistador Cortez's gold. The whole Spanish main and the Carribean for that matter had heard the legends of the great ships that disappeared with Cortez's fated and later to be known cursed gold. Holly looked at the map and was in all bewilderment. How could he find it?? Me ma always said Jack was a gifted sailor. But there must be something else that is helping him. Molly always told Holly, that really all Captain Jack Sparrow was after, was a fleet of ships to plunder the Carribean. So this is how he is going to do this, by finding the legendary stash of Cortez?? He must be mad... was all Holly could think of. I have to tell me aunty and me ma about this. She turned and went for the doorknob and was completly taken by surprise as the door swung open and there was Jack himself. With a comforting grin and a even more scary smile Jack said " Ahhh does me 'eart well love ye be finally awake." Holly was stunned and froze. Does he know?? Holly calmed and warmed up. " Why thank you Captain Sparrow, many thanks. I will be sure to let me mother know of your kindness. " Jack looked genuine with intrigue "No worries Miss Ironscarlett, at least we made good time while you slept. We are a half days out from Shipwreck Cove." Holly still standing remembered now all the events that are about to transpire. Where did i go wrong......... she thought.
Can't wait for more, awesome as usual.
Wholeheartedly agrees! ^
"Now, now missy no need to look all glum and melancholy." Jack said with a hint of glee. Like a child who just found a cash prize. "Once we are at shipwreck Cove all things will be well, you'll see. By the way, the late shift is getting ready to wake..... mind taking the helm for a few hours?? I need to speak to Barbossa." Holly immediately agreed... "Aye Captain Sparrow. A shift on the Pearl it will be . Consider this my payment for resting so long in your quarters." Before Holly knew what she said Jack replied walking past her into his quarters. "No worries Miss Ironscarlett, your mother and i go way back. She is like a sister to me. Now please shut the door i need some rest. We have a busy day tomorrow." Holly shut the door and began to walk to the door. She opened the door and indeed night had fallen. She walked around to see Barbossa at the helm. "Mr. Barbossa Captain Jack Sparrow wishes to speak to you. I will take the wheel mate." Barbossa watching Holly scale the steps to the Navigation deck. "Aye miss Ironscarlett.... just keep the sails betwwen those too stars on either side and we should mek Shipwreck Cove by day break." Barbossa smiled and let go of the wheel and swiftly went below. Holly was curious as to why Barbossa was in such a mood and he smiled at her. Barbossa never smiles at anything but plunder. Holly had a sudden thought. What if the Captain and his first mate are taking the crew to Isla De Muerta. Oh this is such a mess thought Holly. Wow this is the easiest ship i have ever sailed on. It was true the ship practically sailed itself. Or so it seemed. Holly looked around kept the too stars in they're spots ad thought. Oh my this is a dreadful outing......
Holly, standing at the helm of the Black Pearl. Who would have thought? She noticed that the sky was very vast and open, the stars shining with there glittering presence. She turned to look to port and see if anything was out there and was totally startled by one Bill Turner. " Evening Miss Ironscarlett. Captain Sparrow is going to come back up top. So don't get nervous. We have about three hours before day break. If you like i can take the wheel ma'm. Holly looked at Bill and smiled " A good thing to see Bootstrap. That would be a hardy pirate such as yerself. Aye, at the wheel Mister Turner." Bill took the wheel with a reply. " Aye Captain Ironscarlett. You know i sailed with your mother and aunt before? Crazy those two. Like night and day. Your aunt being day and your mom the night...." Bill kinda stared out at the stars and turned to Holly. "You know they always weren't that way right?? Jolly Roger has wronged the Carribean Seas with what he did to your mother." He turned and took berring of the sky and turned the wheel starbord a half turn. Holly looked at Bill grabbed his shoulder " I know Bootstrap.... many things are afoot these days. So what is this venture the good Captain is after this time....???" Bootstrap turned and stared with a genuine smile " Aye the good Captain Jack Sparrow...."
Awww, you're gonna make us wait to find out what the adventure is...
Thank you for another chapter Molly, was so happy to see it and read it...awesome.
"Aye the good Captain Sparrow indeed..." Bottstrap Bill said. Smiling and staring off the starboard side, as if he saw something coming, that made him worry. " The crew is on edge ever since Captain Jack Sparrow made Hector Barbossa first mate." He said turning back towards Holly." Rumor has it the Captain has found an item of ill repute. After the festivities he intends to sail to New Guinea to find it." Turn back square on the helm Bootstrap Bill turn to port a half turn, waited about 15 seconds then back to port. "Hasn't told anybody what it is. Not even Mr. Gibbs." "You suspect a conspiracy then??" Holly asked. " Of course we all do on board this forsaken ship... we be pirates after all mate." Bootstrap seemed a lil adjitated now so Holly back off and came aroun his starboard side and looked him in the side of his face. " Then who and for what purpose then???" "Aye Ms. Ironscarlett... who indeed?" "Oi you too, what be the course and heading??" Both Holly and Bootstrap turned to see Captain Jack Sparrow standing on the port deck. "How does he do that??" Thought Holly on the Captain's sudden appearence. " North by Northeast Capn!!" called Bootstrap. " Good mate we should make it to Shipwreck Cove a little after day break." Jack walked over to stan next to Bootstrap and looked at Holly." I believe we are a bit ahead of schedule since it appears Mr. Jones is preoccupied with your mother." Taking off his hat and bowing " Not many pirates in the 9 seas merit such a reputation." Standing back upright and putting his hat back on " Please do give your mum me regards as a job well done!! She'll know what you mean when you say it mate." Smiling now like a coiled cobra Jack stared at her waiting on a rebuke or a reply. Holly couldn't tell."Aye Captain Sparrow.... i shall ever relay your regards...." Holly Replied, bowing but not taking her eyes of Jack. This is not going well...... Holly thought.
