We fight and fight, and soon she knocks my sword to the floor. She points her sword at my throat. Hawk, you can finish the last piece of the puzzle." she says. My eyes narrow. I glare at Hawk with seething hatred, but he won't meet my eyes. " Well? Go ahead... finish me," I say tauntingly, suddenly understanding. The coward couldn't kill me, he doesn't have the stomach for it! Out of the corner of my eyes I see my sword. I reach for it, trying not to be noticed, but the first mate is standing in the way. This whole plan didn't go at all how I had wanted it to! While the idiot is hesitating, I suddenly grab a gun lying nearby, and point it at him, leaning as far as I can, without my throat being sliced by her sword. " I'm not sure if there is any ammo left in this gun... care to find out?" I say. " Surrender, Hawk, or you die," I scream. He stares at the gun, and doesn't speak for what feels like an eternity. I wait patiently, oblivious for a moment to the roaring battle around me. " Very well..." he says quietly, in a defeated, weak voice. " Kiera, release her," he adds quietly. " Wise choice," I hiss. " EVERYONE! THE BATTLE IS OVER!" I yell with triumph. My crew hoots, and I can practically see Hawk's crew's shoulder's sag. This ship is mine now, and everything in it, too. But the best part is, I'll get my sweet revenge at last.
"Hawk, you can finish the last piece of the puzzle." Kiera says. I look at Veronica's ice blue eyes for a moment, seething with anger, then look away quickly. I can't do it. I can't kill her... Kiera gives me an annoyed look, and Veronica says something, that I can't quite make out. Suddenly, out of nowhere, she has a pistol, and is holding it menancingly." I'm not sure if there is any ammo left in this gun... care to find out?" she says, then gives a little laugh. My eyes are fixed on the gun." Surrender, Hawk, or you die," she screams. I stay silent for a bit, Kiera's eyes boring into mine. If I die, we may still win, and we will still have Kiera as Captain... but I'll be... dead. " Very well," I say after a while. " Kiera, release, her" Kiera does grudgingly. I refuse to look everyone in the eye, staring straight ahead at something only my eyes can see. Veronica announces her victory, and hoots of triumph ring from her crew. " Coward!" I hear Kiera hiss under her breath.
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!
