Fire Cove Season 2- Blackheart’s Resolve~ Part 2
It had been 4 days and we were still being held captive in Blackheart’s hideout. “Ugh! What does she want with us?!” I yelled as I slammed my hands around the bars of our cell.
“Victoria, calm down. We’ll be okay.” Jake said calmly.
“Jake, you were evil once, so you know how evil people think. If you were Blackheart what would you do with us?” I asked and once I finished my sentence I gasped. “Oh, Jake I’m sorry! I don’t know what I’m saying right now. I- I’m just so upset over everything right now.” I cried.
“It’s alright. I don’t know why we’ve been here so long. I don’t know what she’s planning, but as long as we’re together, nothing will happen to us. We take care of each other.” Jake said with a smile. “But what about her threats in the cave? She’s trying to separate us!” I exclaimed. “Victoria, she can never separate us. The Code states that if two pirates are married, they must give up being a pirate or-” Jake stopped talking. “Or what?” I asked. “Well- we’d have to give up our first born child.” Jake said sadly. “What?!” I asked, in a state of shock.
“Wait- what is that?” I asked. “What’s what?” Jake replied. “I hear footsteps… It must be Blackheart!” I said.
And slowly a young woman approached us. I had never seen her before, but I could tell she was a pirate.
“Who are you?” Jake asked. “My name is Siara. Don’t worry, I’m here to help ye.” Siara said.
“You can get us out of here?” I asked anxiously. “Aye. But we must move quickly. Who knows when Blackheart’ll come down here next.” Siara said.
“Yes, but I’m sure Blackheart keeps the keys somewhere else.” I stated.
“Don’t need’em. I’ve busted quite a few prisoners outta here. I know just what to do!” Siara explained.
Siara grabbed a hairpin out of her skirt and poked it in the keyhole. After a few seconds we heard the click- it was unlocked!
“Good work, Siara!” Jake said. “Yes, thank you so much!” I exclaimed.
“No trouble at all. Now we gotta hurry and get ye two to Monte Cristo!” Siara said.
“Monte Cristo? Why do we have to go there?” Jake questioned.
“We’re meeting the Keeper of The Code thar. She’s a friend of mine and I told her about ye. I’m tryin’ to help you two and many others as well. Ye aren’t the first pirates to fall in love, but ye be the first ones to get married since that Code was made. Now maybe, just maybe, she’ll change The Code and pirates will be able to marry again.” Siara explained.
“Siara, do you love someone as well?” I asked. “Aye, I do. The Code isn’t fair and that’s why we need to change it.” Siara replied. “And do you know what Blackheart wants to do to us?” I asked again. “Well, either she wants to separate ye (even if it means death) or she wants to take your first born child- if and when ye ever have one.” Siara explained.
I’m certain Jake knew I was scared since he grabbed my hand. I couldn’t bear the thought of losing my child or Jake. “Why is The Code so important to Blackheart?” I asked myself and off we went to Monte Cristo Island.
