Fire Cove~ Part 2
“Captain Turner is up to something. I have a feelin’ that he’s working with Blackheart.” I looked at Elinor with surprise. “Elinor, Jake wouldn’t do anything like that. I’ve known him for a long time and he has always been a man of good form. Anyways, why would he want your sister?” I asked.
“That I haven’t figured out yet. All I know is that he’s up to no good. He can’t be trusted.” Elinor said. I sighed, “Well you can be cautious of him if you want, but I happen to know that he can be trusted. He was fine man back in Aztec.”
Elinor studied me for a moment. “You don’t love him do you?” Elinor asked with concern.
“Of course not! I could never love Jake, I only consider him a friend and that is all. Anyways, you know that pirates can’t be married. It’s part of the Code and it’s something we all agree to when we become pirates. I am very shocked you even said such a thing.” I replied.
I said goodnight and went back to bed. I wanted to try getting a little sleep before the break of dawn.
Our day started out pretty good. Jake and Elinor talked over what needed to be done and Celeste, Juliet, and I talked with each other. “What do ye think of Captain Turner?” Juliet asked.
“I think he’s suspicious. He pauses too much when you ask him a question.” Celeste replied.
“I think he’s just shy. He probably doesn’t talk to a lot of people now.” I said. I guess I was trying to defend him. He was my friend, after all.
“V-v-victoria..” Juliet stammered.
“Juliet, what’s wron-?” I was cut off when Jake yelled,
“Victoria, watch out!”
I spun around and could not believe my eyes!
There right in front of me was the vicious Leviathan! I had heard so many tales and songs about it that seeing it was almost amazing! But still, I was absolutely frozen in fear!
I could not move. I could hardly hear Juliet and Celeste who were trying to tell me what to do and to get away slowly.
The Leviathan had it’s mouth wide open and was just about to get me when, “Victoria!!”
Jake came running towards me with his sword. As he pushed me to the ground with his left hand he killed the Leviathan with his right.
Within a second after Jake killed it, he was helping me up.
“Are you alright?” Jake asked with concern. “Y-yes, I’m fine.” I said, although I was a bit shaken.
“Good. I’m gonna clean my sword now.” He said.
“Jake, wait! Why did you do that? You could’ve been seriously injured- or worse!” I said.
Jake looked at me with a grin. “I know, but I couldn’t let anything happen to you.”
That’s the end of Part 2! Look for Part 3 hopefully coming tomorrow! 😀
