A young girl stood watching the water singing a pirate song. She jumped upon feeling a hand on her shoulder.
"Quiet, missy." She turned to see the man she knew as Gibbs. "Cursed pirates sail these waters. You don't want to bring them down us now do you?"
"Mr. Gibbs that will do." Norrington spoke.
"She was singing about pirates. It's bad luck to be singing about pirates with us mired in this unnatural fog. Mark my words."
"Consider them marked," said Norrington. "On your way."
"Aye, Lieutenant." Gibbs said as he began to move away. "It's bad luck to have a woman on board, too. Even a miniature one."
"I think it'd be rather exciting to meet a pirate."
"Think again, Miss Swann. Vile and dissolute creatures the lot of them. I tend that any man who sails under a pirate flag or wears a pirate brand gets what he deserves. A short drop and a sudden stop."
Elizabeth Swann turned toward Gibb to see the man making a hanging motion. She gasped. Her father steps up.
"Lieutenant Norrington, I appreciate your fervor, but I'm concerned about the effect this subject will have upon my daughter."
"My apologies, Governor Swann." Norrington said before leaving to return to his duty.
"Actually, I find it all fascinating." Elizabeth told her father.
"Yes. That's what concerns me." Her father began walking the way he had come.
Elizabeth began looking out at the water once again. She spotted something and thought her eyes were playing tricks on her. She sees a parasol floating open in the water. Looking around she soon spots a plank of wood carrying to unconscious bodies. She noticed one was a boy and the other was a girl.
"Look! A boy! A girl! There's a girl and boy in the water!" Norrington and several others rushed to look where she was pointing.
"Man overboard! Man the ropes. Fetch a hook. Haul them aboard."
The crew rushed to follow the Lieutenants orders. Gibbs had hold of the boy while Norrington took hold of the girl. Elizabeth watched as they laid them on the deck.
"They’re still breathing." Norrington reported.
The crew soon had their eyes on the burning ship before them. The entire ship was lit on fire.
"What happened here?" Gov. Swann, Elizabeth's father, asked Norrington.
"It's most likely the powder magazine. Merchant vessels run heavily armed."
"A lot of good it did them," said Gibbs. "Everyone's thinking it. I'm just saying it. Pirates."
"Pirates? There's no proof of that. It's probably an accident."
"Rouse the captain immediately. Heave to and take in sail. Launch the boats." Norrington commanded.
Several of the men picked up the two to move them out of the way. Elizabeth's father joined her.
"I want you to accompany them. They'll be in your charge. Take care of them."
Elizabeth nodded and followed them. When they laid them down, she move cautiously toward them. She found herself fascinated with the dark hair boy, and reached out to move the hair out of his face. Beside him laid a girl with blonde hair, but her face resembled the boy beside her. The boy gasped for breath. His eyes fell upon her.
"It's okay. My name's Elizabeth Swann."
"Will Turner. My sister?"
"She's okay too. She's right beside you. I'm watching over you both, Will."
Will fell back into unconsciousness, and Swann noticed the necklace on him. She looked at the coin and knew that right away it had to do with pirates.
"Have they said anything?" Norrington asked. Swann grabbed the necklace and hid it behind her back before standing up to answer.
"He said his name's William Turner and that is his sister. That's all I found out."
"Take them below."
She watched as the men picked them up to take them below making sure to keep the necklace hidden. When they were gone, she held the coin to the light and soon saw a pirate ship with all black sails. She blinked and the ship was gone. Eight years later
It had been eight years since Elizabeth Turner and her twin brother Will Turner were picked up by the boat. Now she and her brother were on their way to the Swann Mansion. Elizabeth, who everyone called Buffy, was going to see her best friend, while her brother delivered the sword to the Governor. They were both wearing their best clothes as they waited for the door to open. The butler opened the door and escorted them to the hall where they were told to wait. Will had been to the mansion several times escorting his sister or picking her up, but this was the first time he had gotten a good look at the inside. He touched the candleholder and it fell off the wall.
"Will!" Buffy hissed at him. She motioned for him to do something with it. He hid it in the umbrella stand right before the Governor came down followed by the butler.
"Mr. Turner. Miss Turner. Good to see you both again. Elizabeth is finishing getting ready. You may go on up if you like."
"Thank you sir." She headed for the stairs. Will watched her until she was out of sight.
"I have your order." Will said as he placed the box that he was carrying down. He opened the box and presented the sword. "The blade is folded steel. That's gold filigree laid into the handle. If I may."
The Governor handed him the sword and showed him how well the blade worked.
"Perfectly balanced. The tang is nearly the full width of the blade."
Will tosses it into the air to show the Governor and catches it. He presents the blade to him.
"Impressive. Very impressive. Now, now. Commodore Norrington is going to be very pleased with this. Do pass your compliments on to your master."
"I shall." Will said as he finished putting the sword back in the box. "A craftsman is always pleased to hear his work is appreciated."
The sounds of footsteps were heard and they both turn to see Elizabeth and Buffy coming down the stairs.
"Elizabeth, you look absolutely stunning." Her father told her.
"Will. It's so good to see you. I was just telling Buffy that I dreamt about you both last night."
"About the day we met. Do you remember?"
"How could I forget, Miss Swann?"
"How many times must I ask you to call me Elizabeth?"
"At least once more Miss Swann, as always."
"There. See? At least the boy has a sense of propriety. We really must be going. There you are." Her father said.
"Father, I asked Miss Turner to join us. I hope you don't mind." Elizabeth said using the name her father wanted to hear.
"I suppose it will be alright, but we most go now or were going to be late."
"Good day, Mr. Turner."
"I'll see you at home later." Buffy said as she kissed him on the cheek. He nodded and watched them leave.
"Good day." Will said. His sister was the only to hear him say Elizabeth.
Buffy had been wandering through the crowd. Norrington had wanted to talk and walk with Elizabeth so that left Buffy alone. She was watching Elizabeth for any sign that Norrington might be asking Elizabeth to marry him. She noticed Elizabeth wasn't breathing to well. Suddenly before her eyes, Elizabeth fell over the edge and into the water. Buffy swore quietly to herself and she ran to the edge. She and several others began to run toward the docks. When they arrived, they found Elizabeth wearing only her skivvies. Buffy watched as Norrington drew his sword on the pirate.
"Elizabeth. Are you all right?" Her father asked as he helped her up.
"Yes, I'm fine."
Buffy moved closer to her friend to make sure she was all right. Her father covers her with his coat when he notices her nakedness.
"Shoot him." Her father said.
Buffy took her first real look at her friend's rescuer. He was actually quite a looker for a pirate. He must have seen her looking at him for he winked at her and gave her smile that Buffy thought looked so sexy on him. Buffy turned her attention back to the conversation.
"Commodore, do you really intend to kill my rescuer?" Elizabeth asked.
Norrington thought about it before motioning with his head to lower their swords. He put his hand out to the man.
"I believe thanks are in order." When the man reaches to shake his hand, Norrington grabbed his arm and pulled up his sleeve. "Had a brush with the east India Trading Company, did we, pirate?"
The man winced and the Governor spoke.
"Keep your guns on him, men. Gillette, fetch some irons. Well, well, Jack Sparrow, isn't it?"
"Captain Jack Sparrow, if you please, sir."
"Well I don't see your ship, Captain."
"I'm in the market as it were." Norrington looked over Sparrows things.
"You are without a doubt the worst pirate I've ever heard of."
"But you have heard of me."
The Commodore pulled him away toward where the chains were to be placed on him. Elizabeth began to protest and Buffy just followed quietly.
"I wouldn't get to close Elizabeth." Buffy said as moved to herd her friend away from the man.
"Ms. Turner is right. Come along dear."
Elizabeth was pulled back into her father's embrace. The shackles had just been placed on Sparrow when he quickly moved throwing his arms over her head so that the shackles threatened to choke Buffy.
"Buffy!" Elizabeth called out frantically. "No! Don't shoot!"
"I knew you'd warm up to me. Commodore Norrington, my effects please. And my hat."
The Commodore hesitated and Sparrow tugged the chain a bit making Buffy choke. He finally relented and turned to get his effects.
"It is Buffy, isn't it?" Buffy not able to speak simply nodded. He loosened his grip. "If you would be so kind. Come, come, dear. We don't have all day."
Norrington hands the things to Buffy. Sparrow takes his gun and holds to Buffy's head. If looks could kill, he would have been six feet under already.
"Now if you'll be very kind."
He moved closer as she snapped the belt on to smell her hair. She placed his hat on his head and placed the last thing on him. Hugging him to cinch it, she could tell he was enjoying this far too much. She cinched the belt tighter.
"Easy on the goods darling."
"Sticks and stones, love." He said turning her back around. "Gentleman, ladies, you will always remember this as the day that you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow."
He kissed the side of her neck before shoving her toward the soldiers. Norrington was the one to catch her. Sparrow was making his escape.
"Open fire! On his heels!" The soldiers led chase. Norrington pulled one of them back.
"See that Ms. Turner returns home safely." The soldier nodded. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK. PLEASE READ AND REVIEW!
