Title: The Pirate Life
Summary: Ten year old Willow Rosenburg, descendant of Wendy Darling, takes up her role as Peter's mother. But one must never forget Captain Hook...

All children, except one, grow up. Peter Pan is his name and as all adventures involving one of Wendy’s descendants does, this one too begins with him.
By the time that Willow Rosenburg was born Mrs. Sheila Rosenburg had very successfully forgotten everything to do with the summer of her tenth year that she had spent as Peter’s mother. Everything, that is, except the faint sound of the waves crashing against Neverland’s shore. That she could still remember, during those few brief, precious moments right before sleep swept her away. That is the way it always is with the children of Wendy after they have grown up. For that is what happens, you see, when you grow up. You forget.
It was Willow’s sixth summer when the pipe’s haunting melody began to drift thru her dreams, as sweet and seducing as a siren’s song and as timeless as the tide. And when she awoke the next morning she was not very surprised to find 3 perfect skeleton leaves laying at the foot of her bed. It was Friday morning, of course. Things like this always happen on Fridays.
