A Pirate Adventure~ Part 7
I didn’t sleep a wink that night. So when morning finally came I decided I was going to get out of here. “Come on you rope! Untie!” I grunted. I was trying to wiggle my way out of that rope!
“Whew! Free at last!” I thought to myself. Knowing that I couldn’t get off of the ship unseen I looked for something to fight with. I found a metal tube in the corner.
When I picked it up I almost dropped it because it was so heavy! “I better not hit anybody with this. It’ll work good as a warning, though!” I thought to myself.
“Do you hear something below deck, Rosa?” Captain Elena asked.
“No, Captain.” Rosa replied.
“You stay up here. I’m gonna go check in on our guest.” Captain Elena said.
I suddenly remembered Captain Elena asking me if I knew any riddles. “Hmm.. I wonder..” I said aloud. I pulled out a note that Captain Elinor had given me my first day on her ship. On the front it read:
“TOP SECRET! DO NOT OPEN!”
I thought that I should open it up. Maybe it was important!
It was a riddle! Just as Captain Elena said! It read:
Once inside the cave
A hero will save!
Tis’ no easy task
Ye should wear a mask.”
“What could that mean?” I wondered aloud, “Take heed once inside the cave. A hero will save– A hero will save you? Tis no easy task, Ye should wear a mask– wear a disguise I wonder?” I tried to figure out the riddle. I then realized I should hide it where no one could find it. But where?
I saw a loose board and decided to hide it there.
I reached for my metal tube when a voice said behind:
“Halt! What do you think you’re doing?” Captain Elena said. Oh no! I was caught.
Captain Elena was making me walk the plank. Although I had planned to jump off of the ship and swim to safety, I hadn’t planned for my hands to be tied together.
I turned to Captain Elena and said,
“Captain, I have a deal to offer you.”
“Ah, I see. And what would that be?” Captain Elena asked.
“I stay on this ship and assist you in any way I can. And you do no harm to Captain Elinor and her crew!” I said.
“Hmm…I don’t think so, matie. Go ahead and walk the plank! Your wrists are tied loose enough for you to swim to shore.” Captain Elena said.
I was in tears. When would I ever see my mother and father again?
Just then Rosa plunged towards Captain Elena!
“Victoria, go with Amelia! She’ll make sure you’re safe!” Rosa said.
Amelia led me to a small room with a bed.
“Here, let me help with that.” Amelia said while she untied my wrists.
“What is this room for?” I asked.
“We use it if someone on board gets sick. I’d better get up to the crow’s nest before Captain discovers I’m missing! Just stay down here and don’t make a sound!” Amelia said.
“Alright, thank you so much! And tell Rosa, too.” I said and she went off.
“If you pull a stunt like that again it’s off of my crew you go! This next bit of treasure we’re getting- you won’t get one penny of it! Understand!?” Captain Elena said.
“Aye, Captain.” Rosa replied.
“Captain! Thar it is! Isla del Tesoro!!” Amelia cried out.
That’s where we end Part 7! Look for Part 8 coming tomorrow and the Grand Finale on Wednesday! 😀
Argh! I need to know soooo bad! Good thing it’s almost night time!
I LOVE your photo stories!
And your crocheting too!
LOLOLOL!! Well, in the mean time you can ponder the riddle and why Elinor gave it to Victoria 😀
Thank you! I’m glad you enjoy them so much 🙂
Thanks! I have to admit that I am kind of obssessed with the pirate outfits I made- LOLOL! 😀 😛
heehee! I will try!
I love the outfits though!
LOL! Okie-dokie! 😀
Thank you so much! 🙂
EEEK!!!! CAN’T WAIT TO SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! This has turned into an amazing story!
Hm, that’s a weird riddle! Was it hard for you to write that? Making it up and all?
LOLOLOL!! Thank you so much! 😀
I (surprisingly) actually thought of it pretty fast, but it was still hard! And of course I know the answer to it, too 🙂
You’re welcome! 😀
Sorry I haven’t been on in a while. I have a stumuch ache, so mom won’t let me on the computer, and makes me lay on the couch and do school 😛
Oh really? That’s cool! Oh yeah, that’s true. It makes it a little easier than if you didn’t know! 😛
Aw, I hope you feel better soon! 🙁
Yes, that was good for me. I thought I’d be sitting for an hour trying to think of something! LOL! 😛
LOL! Definitely! 😀
I thought I replied to this?! My computer… 😛
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers, I feel alot better now 🙂
LOL! I get the feeling. I was trying to think of a poem, and I just used a combination of what I had read in The Chronicles of Narnia, and what I wanted to happen, and it turned out great! 😀
I have a question though, if Captain Elinor didn’t know what was goin to happen, then how’d she write the riddle? Like how’d she know that the treasure was in a cave, and that Victoria should “Wear a mask”?
You’re welcome! I’m glad to hear that 🙂
LOLOL! That’s good! I kind of thought about the Veggie Tales movie “The Pirate’s Who Don’t Do Anything” because they have riddles in that, but they didn’t match with the story 😛
Good question! I was actually going to have Elinor and Victoria talk about that, but it didn’t seem to fit anywhere 😉
Well, this is what I had in mind. Elinor needed someone smart to help with finding the treasure, so she left the key on the beach in hope that someone would find it. Then she went to Victoria’s house and persuaded her to come along on her adventure. Oh, I forgot to say that the note was already written. She wanted to add someone to her crew with smarts and who loved adventure! Someone who could someday take over as captain because Elinor planned to retire soon. 🙂
She knew where the treasure was because of the map 😉
“Wear a mask” was Elinor’s way of saying, “Come on! You know you’re smart and are very adventurous. Use it and come out of your shell!” She knew that Victoria would end up wanting to be a pirate 😀
I hope this answered your question! 🙂
AHHHH!!! VICTORIA! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!?!!!! YOU COULD HAVE….HAVE…………WALKED THE PLANK :O ROSA SAVED YOU!! AND..AND…YOU’RE ALIVE! AND….YOU’RE STILL ALIVE! AND YOU’RE OKAY! AND..AND… *faints of the excitement*
LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!! Oh, my! Maybe I should stop the series. You’re fainting a lot! LOLOLOL!! 😀 😛
STOPPING THE SERIES?! *gasp *hen I would die. XD JK. I LOVE IT!
LOLOLOL!!! Well, it’s going to end tomorrow… sadly 🙁
Thanks! I’ve loved doing this so much! 😀
IT ENDS….TOMORROW?! WHAAAAAT!? NOOOOOOOOOOOO *faints again* XD
Well, now it will end on Thursday since I didn’t post today 😉
YEAH THE STORY IS STRETCHED!
Oh and happy october! I’m working on my “Savor September” video. Molly-Anne looks so cute in the last pic of the vid!
LOLOLOL!! Yes it is! And I was gone all day today, so now Part 8 won’t be posted until tomorrow (or today, depending on when you read this 😛 )!
Thank you, same to you!
Aw, I can’t wait to see! 😀
Yeah! Having problems with uploading to youtube right now (my dad has to do all that stuff, I’m not allowed on youtube) so it’s taking a while. I can’t wait to get it up though!
Oh, I see! I’m gonna go take pics for Part 8 in a bit and I’m SO excited!! 😀
Aw… The story is going to come to an end.. Well, I guess it would have to sometime. 😀 I am liking it a lot, though. 🙂
Yes, it’s sad 🙁
I’m glad you’ve enjoyed it! 🙂
Yeah. You’ll have to think of another series. Maybe a series of reviews!!!
LOLOL! That would be cool! I think photostory series are more fun, though 😀
Maybe I could start something where I do one review per week? 🙂
Yeah, that’d be great. I so want you to do reviews of AG stuff-and then you make me want it more! 😀 LOL!
Sure, no problem! I’ll just have to think of what to review 😀
LOLOL! I know, right? That’s what all reviews and pics to do to me! 😀 😛
Wait… the story… ENDS! Oh no! This is terrible! You should do one with princesses(notice my obsession?)!
Hmm… I think I know the riddle…
I LOVED the story!
P.S. I liked your Q&A question!
LOLOL! Yes, all good stories come to an end 😉
Hehe! That’s a good idea! I’ll have to see if I can think of something for that 😀
Really? And what do you think it could be? 😀
P.S. Thanks! 🙂
hmm I think it means when she is inside the cave a she will save a hero (LOL or someone will save her!)
tis’ no easy task means well it is not an easy task
And Ye should wear a mask (as victoria said) wear a disguise
Heehee! It is probably wrong but maybe not!
P.S. It is fine I did not even notice you not posting yesterday
Where did you go?
LOLOL! Well, you’ll just have to wait and see 🙂
P.S. Oh, that’s good! 🙂
We had a family thing to go to 😉
I’m not going to be posting Part 8 today because we have somewhere to go tonight, but a definite post tomorrow! 🙂
Okay! No problem.
Yeah, but you have lot of stuff, so it can’t be too hard. 😉
Yes! That’s all they do. But if you look at some reviews on AG’s site, then you’ll find some bad ones. 😛
P.S. Hey, Jaclynn! Check out this sweepstakes on AG’s site!! Here is the link:
LOL! Well, I’d say that I have more dolls and clothes than stuff 😀
Oh, I know! I always read reviews before I buy something from them now. Like on my birthday I was planning to buy the English Riding Outfit, but changed my mind because of the reviews on AG. I was disappointed, but oh well 🙂
P.S. That looks so cool! I should ask my mom if we can do that! 😀
Thanks for linking 🙂
LOL! Well, I guess that’s probably true. But you do have some stuff, right? And also, clothes are good to review, too.
Yeah, well, the reviews are very helpful if the item is not good. 🙂 And if there are like, no bad reviews, then you’d say, that’s a good thing. 🙂
P.S. You are welcome! I don’t know if I want to, since I have never bought anything directly from AG. Like, I bought Doll School, but that was from Walmart. So does that count? IDK
Well, I have the Baking Table (which I already reviewed), Saige’s Painting Set (already reviewed as well), Penny (retired), Western Horse Supplies (retired) or whatever it’s called- LOL! And I think that’s about it! I can’t really think right now 😛
Yeah, I guess clothes are good to review! There would be a lot of clothing reviews! LOLOL! 😀 😛
Yes, that’s a VERY good thing! 😀
P.S. I think you could review it! It’s an AG item, after all 😉 And they probably don’t know if you bought it from them or not. Just don’t say that you bought it from Walmart- LOL! 😀
Well you could review them on the AG site… I am going to review Linda if I can… A doll will be a good thing to review, like Saige or Annika.
Just a thought!
-Grace Ag Lover
Yes, it would! I could review Rebecca, Marie-Grace, Caroline, Saige, and Annika! And I could do the Bitty Twins, too! 😀
Oh, okay! Well, you didn’t review all your dolls!
LOL! Well, maybe you don’t have to review all of them! 😀
P.S.Oh, okay! Do you know if you do more than one review than you get more entries? I doubt it!
LOL! Yeah, I definitely won’t say that! 😀
That’s true! Maybe I’ll do a review on Monday 😀
LOL! I know, but I think it’d be fun! 🙂
P.S. I think it’s just one entry per person because you have to be logged in to write a review 😉
Oh so you could get more entrys per doll item?
@Christian Homeschooler: You do not have to get it from AG to review an item it just needs to be american girl.
P.S. Are you going to post the last pirate adventure today?
How is your craft fair crocheting going? Are you going to post the items you made on your site?
Hee hee! So many questions!
Well, I’m pretty sure it’s just one entry, but I think it would be fun to do a few reviews on there 🙂
P.S. Yes, I am! I’m getting ready to take the pictures right now! 😀
It’s going good! I made 10 Mickey Mouse ears and 4 bow pieces this morning, so that’s good! I need to make more outfits, though and I don’t have much time! 😕
ooh I want Mickey Mouse ears LOL!
Okay I will look in a bit!
LOLOL! If you want a Minnie Mouse hat I sell them for $10 😉
Oh, and I forgot to answer one of your questions- oops! 😛
Yes, I could post some pictures of the items I’ll be selling at the craft fair 🙂
okay! Well how much is shipping?
Yippie! I will look for that next post!
Probably $2.00, so $12.00 total 😉
LOL! Okay! 😀
LOL! It would be nice if it was all written out for you! 😛
Oh okay! I see. I never got how she found the key and it happened to be the right one 😛
That makes more sense if the riddle was already written, since she couldn’t have written it real quick while Elena and her crew were swinging over on a rope and then given it to Victoria while they weren’t looking! 😛
Yes it answered my question! 🙂
LOLOLOL! Yeah, that would’ve been too hard and pretty impossible for her to do! 😀 😛
Oh, good! 🙂
Definately! I know she’s in shape and all, but that would be taking it a little bit too far! 😛
LOLOLOLOL!!! That’s funny!! 😀 😛
