Suddenly I bump into Laisy. " Sorry!" I say frantically, then help her up. "Thanks." she says, then hurries away. " Wait! What's the matter?" I call after her, then hear even more shouting on deck. I know I should be in my cell, and I don't want to make Kiera mad again, or face the captain, so I dart into my cell. I hear lots of noise upstairs. I don't want to leave though, Cyrus is down here. Suprised, I look up and see him dash up the stairs, a cutlass in hand. " Brother, wait!" I call, and run after him.
"Everyone! Veronica has her eyes on our ship! Go towards the opposite direction!" Kiera suddenly shouts. Veronica? I don't understand,why is she here? I look into the distance, and sure enough I can make out the Nightingale, it seems to be steering closer and closer to us. "Captain.. Veronica has set her eyes on our ship! What shall we do?" Kiera says. I don't answer, staring at the ship. " Captain!" she says again. Suddenly the ship shakes, and I watch as the pirates swing over onto our ship. " We fight," I say, then she gives a simple nod, then disappears into the mob of other pirates. I grab my cutlass, but I'm so confused.... why did she come here? Suddenly I hear a voice full of seething hatred, and mocking politeness. " Hawk, its been a while, hasn't it?" I turn slowly to see a woman, her dark hair whipping in the wind, her face covered by some sort of mask. " I don't believe I know you," I say coldly, then lunge at the strange woman with my cutlass. " Oh, I think you do," she says, then removes her hood. I gasp. It's her. " What... how...?" " There are many things I know, you see. I happened to see your ship, and now it will be mine, and you and your crew will die!" she screeches the last part. I stare at her, dumbfounded, then quickly catch myself. She puts her mask back on, her eyes full of fury. I tear towards her, intending to stab her, but to my surprise she uses her own sword to block it. " I've changed much, Hawk, but I'm sure your as selfish and stupid as ever!" she says.
I watch him leave, tears streaming down my cheeks. " WAIT!!!!!!" I wail, but he ignores me, and keeps walking, until his shape disappears. I weep violently. " Come back.... please..." I whisper. For once, I felt as though I had been loved, had been cherished. The man I loved was just a hollow shell, selfish and a coward. My hands go to my face and I wail. Why do I have to be a monster! I will never be beautiful again, and no one will ever love me, ever except me for what I am now. I stand up shakily. My sorrow turns to anger, and I scream " Darren Hawk, I swear, you will pay dearly for what you have done!
I stare at him. My vow will be full filled now... I can kill him now! " Hawk, its been a while, hasn't it?" I say with mock politeness. He turns, and his eyes widen. I continue to toy with him, when he lunges at me with his cutlass. I easily block it, then laugh. " I've changed much, Hawk, but I'm sure your as selfish and stupid as ever!" I say. How predictable, he is, he hasn't changed in the least. I won't kill him yet though.I will capture this ship and him, then force him to watch as I kill all of his crew members, then save one maybe, force them to watch me kill his or her captain, then kill them slowly, painfully. yes, that sounds fun. I run away quickly. I need to kill some of course, to weaken them but- Laisy? I see her, wide eyed, and frightened, looking horrified. " Laisy!" I say, then run over to her. Surely she has forgiven me for what I have done! " Laisy, I will eventually kill everyone in this ship, but I can spare you. Join me, you're a smart girl," I purr.
Hi guys, you've probably noticed I'm not on as much. The reason for that is the fact that I'm so much busier than I was last year. Also, I'm in the school play for once. (Squee!) So, I probably will be popping around everyone once in while anyway. But, until then- toodles!
