Fire Cove~ Part 3

IMG_6222

I went below deck where Jake was cleaning his sword. I had something I wanted to ask him. “Jake, can I ask you something?” He looked up from his work. “Aye, you can.” He replied.

IMG_6223

I sat down with a sigh and asked, “Why did you want to be a pirate?” Jake looked at me with a grin. “I’ve been wonderin’ when you were gonna ask that. You’ve always been the curious type.” He said. I looked down feeling a little bad for asking. Then he said,

IMG_6224

“My father was never really there for me. He went to work early in the morning and came home late at night. As soon as he would sit down on his favorite chair he would tell me he wanted me to be a doctor. He’d scold me if I missed one problem in my school work. So when I was of age I decided it was finally time to get out of here. I made everyone believe I was going to medical school so that leaving would be easy. I planned to be a pirate for about two years. I was so thrilled when I was finally able to live my dream.” He sounded so proud of himself, but I didn’t understand why.

IMG_6225

“But that still doesn’t answer my question. Why did you want to be a pirate?” I asked again.

IMG_6228

“Because I could do whatever I pleased! I could go anywhere I wanted to go and have anything I wanted. A pirate’s life is the best life for me.” Jake finished with a smile. Then he asked, “So what about you? Why’d you leave your luxurious life to be a pirate?”

IMG_6229

I giggled. “Well, believe me, I hadn’t planned it all out like you did. Captain Elinor came to my door one evening looking for a key which I had found the day before. So she told us what she was doing and soon enough I volunteered to join her on her adventure. After the chest was found I had a feeling inside that was telling me that this is where I belonged. I’ve been on this ship for about a year now.” I explained. Jake looked at me as if he was interested in my story.IMG_6228

“And what was in the chest?” He asked.
“Oh, it was treasure that belonged to Elinor’s parents.” I said.
“What were her parent’s names?” Jake asked. He looked very anxious to find out.

IMG_6229

“Uh- I believe they were Alice and Elliot McGovern.” I said. He looked away as if he was thinking of something. “Why did you want to know?” I asked.

IMG_6230

“Nothing- it was-uh-nothing. I was just wondering.” He said quickly. “I’d better see where we are.” He said and went on deck. “He’s acting rather peculiar.” I said to myself. “Oh, it’s probably nothing.”

IMG_6231

As I stood up I saw Elinor standing in a corner. She was spying on us!
“Elinor, is there something you needed?” I asked. She just stared at me and then she said harshly, “What have I told ye about mentioning my parent’s names and their treasure chest to people?”
“But Jake is my friend! He would never think of stealing from you!” I said.

IMG_6232

“Listen, Victoria, I know he’s yer friend, but you haven’t seen him in six years. We don’t know that we can trust him!” Elinor explained.
“What is so dangerous of others knowing about your parent’s treasure anyways?” I asked.

IMG_6234

Elinor came close to my ear and whispered, “The Cube of Light belongs to them.” I gasped. “Then why don’t you-” I blurted out, but Elinor covered my mouth and hushed me.

IMG_6236

I whispered, “Then why don’t you give it to Blackheart and save Elena?” Elinor looked at me worriedly. “Because the Cube of Light is powerful and it could be used to destroy an entire city. If Blackheart had control of it she would destroy every city that threatens her. That is why she wants to trade for it!” Elinor said.

IMG_6237

“I understand. But why did Blackheart say you stole it from her?” I asked.
“Because she stole it from my parents and they got it back from her! They paid for it with their lives…” Elinor’s voice trailed off. She cleared her throat, “Come, let’s go on deck.” She said.

IMG_6238

I felt sorry for Elinor and I hoped I was right about Jake.

That’s the end of Part 3! Look for Part 4 coming soon! 🙂
~Jaclynn~

Fire Cove~ Part 2

IMG_6178

As I lay asleep that night I felt something poking my shoulder. “Hm, what’s wrong?” I asked. It was Elinor trying to wake me up.

IMG_6179

“We need to talk.” She said.

IMG_6180

“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.

IMG_6181

“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.”

IMG_6182

Elinor studied me for a moment. “You don’t love him do you?” Elinor asked with concern.

IMG_6185

“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.

IMG_6186

I said goodnight and went back to bed. I wanted to try getting a little sleep before the break of dawn.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IMG_6187

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.

IMG_6189

“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.

IMG_6190

“V-v-victoria..” Juliet stammered.
“Juliet, what’s wron-?” I was cut off when Jake yelled,

IMG_6191

“Victoria, watch out!”

IMG_6192

I spun around and could not believe my eyes!

IMG_6193

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!

IMG_6194

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!!”

IMG_6195

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.

IMG_6197

Within a second after Jake killed it, he was helping me up.

IMG_6198

“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.

IMG_6201

“Jake, wait! Why did you do that? You could’ve been seriously injured- or worse!” I said.

IMG_6203

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! 😀
~Jaclynn~

Fire Cove~ Part 1

My name is Victoria Farnsworth. About a year ago I was a normal girl living in a mansion with my mother and father in the town of Aztec. All that changed when a pirate captain came to our door looking for a key to unlock a chest. I had found the key just the day before and before I knew it, I had volunteered to go on some crazy treasure hunt with the captain. I never imagined this would happen, but now I am a pirate, sailing the seas with my captain, Elinor McGovern and her crew mates Celeste and Juliet. I really couldn’t be happier! But then, someone showed up and I soon discovered that, yes, I could be so much happier…

IMG_6153

“Captain, I see a ship headin’ our way!” Juliet called from the crow’s nest.

IMG_6151

Captain Elinor turned her gaze toward the ship and said, “Aye, I can see it. If it seems to be goin’ right past us, just ignore it.”

IMG_6152

“But, if it seems to be followin’ us we’ll have to make contact.” Captain Elinor ordered.

As the ship drew nearer we could tell that whoever was on that ship wanted to talk. Pretty soon we were right next to each other and someone from the other ship called, “Ahoy, thar! I wish to speak to the captain of yer ship!”  It was a man’s voice and something about it sounded familiar. Like a voice I had heard a long time ago.
Elinor replied, “I’m the captain of this ship! What do ye want?”
“May I come aboard? Indeed I mean you no harm, only to talk.” The man said. Elinor thought for a moment then she said, “Aye, you may. But ye must come weaponless!”
“So be it.” The man replied and swung over on a rope.

IMG_6155

“Are you Captain Elinor McGovern?” He asked with a look of worry.

IMG_6157

As soon as I saw his face I knew I had seen him before. “Who is this man? Surely I do not know him as a pirate. I’m sure I’ve seen his face before when I was younger!” I said to myself.

IMG_6156

“Aye, I am. And who might you be?” Elinor asked.

IMG_6160

“I am Captain Ja-” He paused as he noticed me. “Victoria? Is that you?” He asked.

IMG_6161

“That depends on who is asking.” I replied. Since he obviously knew who I was, I knew I must know him as well. But still, I never gave out my name to anybody until I knew who they were.

IMG_6162

“It’s me, Jake.” He said.

IMG_6163

“Jake Turner? It can’t be you! You can’t be the same Jake who went off to medical school. That was six years ago!” I said.

IMG_6164

“I didn’t go to medical school. I left so I could be who I am now, a pirate captain. It’s all I’ve ever wanted. I know I shouldn’t have lied to everyone, but the past is in the past. And I have to say,  it is certainly good to see a familiar face.” He said. I was in such a state of shock that all I could do was smile.

IMG_6165

“Well, Captain Turner, what is it ye need?” Jake almost forgot what he was doing here.

IMG_6167

“Ah, yes. I-I bring bad tidings.” He stammered. It seemed hard for him to get out the words. “Your sister, Elena, is being held captive by the evil Blackheart Jones. She tracked me down and sent me to find you and tell you.” He said. Captain Elinor looked down at her feet. For years Elinor hadn’t gotten along with her sister. It wasn’t until last year that they finally made amends. I thought that it must’ve been hard for Elinor to hear that Elena was a captive. “What must I do?” Elinor asked.
“Blackheart says yer to bring her the Cube of Light which you stole. Only then will she let your sister go free.” Jake explained.
“The Cube of Light? What makes her think I stole it? I’ve never had it in my hands before!” Elinor said. Jake thought for a moment before replying. “I don’t know what her plans are, but if you don’t return it to her within a fortnight, there will be major consequences.” He said quickly. “I will take my leave now.”

IMG_6168

He was just about to reach for a rope to swing back to his ship on when Elinor said, “Stop! You delivered this message. You know what I need to do! You will help me find the Cube of Light and free my sister, or else.”

IMG_6170

Jake sighed, “Very well. We set our course for Fire Cove.”

That’s the end of Part 1! Look for Part 2 coming soon! 😀

How My Dolls Spent Easter

After we got home from church yesterday and ate lunch I just wanted to relax for awhile. Then it was time to go over my brother in-law’s family’s house. I had such a great time and I got to see my friend Alyssa (you might remember me asking for prayer requests for her when she was in the hospital with bad seizures. Thankfully she is doing a LOT better and it made me really happy!) 😀

First, my girls started out with an Easter Egg Hunt! All of my “kids” didn’t do it, only 6 of them and they were in teams of 3 😉

IMG_5067

All the pretty eggs on the lawn 🙂

IMG_5068

“Which way should we go first?” Cecile asked excitedly.

IMG_5069

“Oh, oh! Let’s get those pretty pink eggs!” Marie-Grace said.

IMG_5070

Rebecca went to pick them up and placed them in the basket.

IMG_5071

“I think we have enough eggs now. We should let the others get the rest.” Kaya said trying to be fair to her sisters.

“Yeah, that’s a good idea.” Saige replied.

IMG_5072

After the egg hunt, they all went inside to join the others.

IMG_5073

Marie-Grace counted her eggs and Cecile and Caroline sat with her.
“How many did you guys get?” Caroline asked.

IMG_5074

“Five, six and seven! We got seven eggs!” Marie-Grace said with a big smile.

IMG_5075

“They collected practically all of the pink eggs. There were hardly any for us!” Kanani said to Jess.

“Well, I know I haven’t been here long, but it seems like pink is Marie-Grace’s favorite color, so I guess it makes sense.” Jess said with a giggle.

IMG_5076

Samantha poured herself a cup of tea and said, “Do you like tea, Lissie?”
“Yes, I love tea!” Felicity replied and Samantha poured her a cup.

IMG_5077

“C’mon, Kristoff. Let’s get all the cinnamon rolls before the others get a chance to have any!” Eli whispered, but Samantha heard him. “Eli, you two are not eating all of those cinnamon rolls! That is so bad for you!” Samantha scolded.

IMG_5078

“How are you doing, Jess? I thought it might be hard for you to celebrate Easter without your family.” Annika said sadly.

“I’m doing okay. Some things have been a little hard, but I’m doing alright.” Jess replied.

IMG_5079

“That’s good. And remember, I’m always here if you need to talk to someone.” Annika said kindly.

IMG_5080

“Thank you, Annika. I’ll remember that.” Jess smiled. “This family is a lot different than my old one,” Jess thought, “but I think that in time, I’m going to love it here. Thank you, Lord, for blessing me with such an amazing family.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Alright! You all guessed correctly, I did get the Sweet School Dress! Now as for the doll, Anonymous was the only one who guessed that correctly 🙂

IMG_5081

It’s Jess!! She absolutely LOVES this outfit! And I’ll definitely be reviewing it soon, so keep your eyes open for it! 😀

Happy (late) Easter from me and my dolls!!!!

How did you spend your Easter? Did you get any dolly surprises?
