I was more scared than I had ever been in my entire life. Just as I was going to go below deck to get away from the storm, Juliet yelled out:
“They’re opening their cannon doors!!! Head for cover!!”
It was too late. A cannon ball hit our ship and I fell to the ground.
Captain McGovern helped me up and said:
“What’s wrong with you, girl? Are you daft? When I tell you to go below deck, you do it!”
“Captain what’ll we do? We can’t make it to ‘Isla del Tesoro’ with a damaged ship! It’s 20 miles away!” Celeste said.
“I know that! We’ll head for the nearest island and repair the ship.” Captain McGovern responded. She sounded very discouraged and upset. What was wrong with her?
“Are you alright, Captain? You seem a little down.” Juliet asked.
“No. No, I’m not.” the Captain responded and she went below deck.
“What’s wrong with the Captain, Juliet? She seems to be acting stranger and stranger as each hour passes.” I asked.
“I know what you mean. I think it might have somethin’ to do with the treasure.” Juliet replied.
“Well, why should some ordinary treasure be making her act this way?” I asked again. Then we turned to face Celeste as she said,
“That’s just it. I don’t think we’re goin’ after some ordinary treasure chest.”
That’s the end of Part 3! Look for Part 4 coming tomorrow! 🙂
Ahoy thar, Maties! I’ve been feeling pirate-y lately (ever since Talk Like A Pirate Day) and I decided to give you a Pirate Photostory Series! This series will be over 3 parts and I know you will love it!
This series stars:
Kirsten as Captain Elinor McGovern
Annika as Victoria Farnsworth
Kanani as Celeste
Saige as Juliet
Let the story- BEGIN!!
“Hello, ladies! My name is Victoria- Victoria Farnsworth. I live in a small town called Aztec in a mansion with my mother and father. I am going to tell you a story that includes myself, pirates, and gold.
A few months ago now I was relaxing in our parlor on a Saturday night with my mother and father. All was well and pleasant until loud (and I mean LOUD) knocking sounded at the door! My father opened up and a Pirate Captain came barging in! She said, “Ahoy! I am Captain Elinor McGovern. I’m sorry to burst in like this sir, but I’m looking for a key- A key that opens a very valuable chest.”
“A key for a chest?” My father asked, “Why in the world would you come searching here for it?”
Suddenly I remembered I found a key on the beach. I gasped! “It must be the one she’s looking for!”
“I have it! I found it on the beach just yesterday.” I said, not realizing what I was getting myself into.
Before I knew it I volunteered to go with her and her crew in search of some treasure chest. And my adventure began…
“Celeste! Juliet! Make sure all preparations are in order for our passenger!” Captain McGovern ordered.
“Aye, aye, Captain!” Celeste and Juliet replied in unison.
“What exactly is it we’re going after? Isn’t it just an ol’ ordinary treasure chest?” Juliet wondered.
“I dunno, Jules. The Cap’n seems to be acting a bit strange if you ask me.” Celeste replied.
I climbed aboard the ship. I couldn’t believe how (you think I’m going to say big, don’t you?) small it was! I expected it to be huge!
“Ahoy, matie! You ever been aboard a ship before?” Captain McGovern asked me.
“No, I haven’t, Ma’m.” I replied.
“Have you ever been on any adventures?” the Captain asked me.
“No, Ma’m. I’ve never left town before.” I replied.
“Hmmm… This could be a problem.” She muttered to herself.
“I beg your pardon?” I asked. She cleared her throat.
“Nevermind, missy! Would you like to stay on deck as we pull out?” She asked.
“Yes, ma’m, I would. My parents are going to wave me off.” I replied. Why did she seem so suspicious?
“Raise the main sail! Celeste, you take the wheel!” The Captain was yelling out orders.
I knew as we departed that I wouldn’t see my parents for a long time.
Just as a tear was about to trickle down my cheek the Captain said,
“Miss Farnsworth! You may go below deck now- it is going to be your room. I will send Celeste in with some blankets shortly.”
She sure loved to boss people around! I wanted to stay on deck still! Oh, well.
I walked down the steps and went below deck.
“Boy, it sure is dark down here.” I thought aloud.
Celeste came down with some blankets.
“Here ya go. The captain said to make up a bed for yourself and get some rest.” Celeste ordered.
“No, I think I’ll go on deck for a while.” I replied.
“The captain insists! You’re not used to this sort of thing and she’s going to need you to be strong and well rested. Now get some sleep!” She said as she walked up the steps.
I did what I could to make up a bed with the blankets Celeste gave me. It sure wasn’t a soft mattress or a feather pillow!
I snuggled under the blanket and went to sleep. I had a feeling I was going to have a big day tomorrow…
That’s all for now, folks! Look for part 2 coming tomorrow! 😀
