Chapter 6 - Pirates on deck!
Well we werent predictin to get em ova here Miss
Hes ran off with my best pixyland, OI!
Aquila took a lunge at a one eyed attacker
with a long sword, impaling him onto a wooden post, and
pulling it out again with the same speed; taking a spin she
grabbed Gryffens hand, and as three roguish pirates rushed
towards in a charge, the parted, slicing all three with a
particularly dangerous piece of cheese wire
(which Pisky had an inkling over, as it had a blue hazy
tinge around it, Gryffen had
been looking through
Aquilas book collection).
Right! Och how many more is there?? the Captain
questioned as another five invaders ran on deck,
the crew had been coping pretty well so far, with the likes
of Pisky, Gryffen and Aquila it wasnt too much trouble
but there were so many. Why are they so bothered about our little ship?
the pixy asked as he knocked a rather tubby little man over board,
Him, there. Aquila pointed over to their attackers Captain,
He can smell the magic, he knows whats on board and wants it
And there was Pisk thinkin it was his cider. Gryffen grinned.
The pirate Captain gazed on as his crew boarded the other ship,
one by one they were cut down, he was not amused.
Darn it! Why dont they just give in?
Ive got plenty more where they came from
he ordered another dozen to clime aboard.
Maybe this isnt such a good idea
Whataya talkin about lass! Look at em! Theyll break, with your help that is
he s'n-word'ed at the pale looking woman,
he had been draining her powers for over four years now,
Ravenna was weakening, this could be her only chance.
Let me go over there, maybe, I could cast a spell, finish
them all off and retrieve what you want!
You think Im gonna let you go over there? You must think
Im a fool woman! he slapped her with the back of his
hand hard across the face. As she let out a moan of pain,
she raised herself off the floor and conjured what little power
she had left; a wave of blue light surrounded her, shining brighter
and brighter until anyone looking was blinded by the spark
that stood there; Ravenna had seen her mother do this once
as a child escaping the Darmisses; she could make her way
over to the other ship whilst everyone was distracted.
What was THAT. Pisky asked in wonder
You can tell youre not the magic sort! Aquila snorted,
slightly out of character, Someones using an escaping tool,
probably to distract us. The warrior noted, wiping the
sweat off her brow she looked around their deck, in sight
of the escapee
There! She yelled to Gryffen, who leaped
onto nothingness, but grabbing what felt like a tall, lean woman.
Stop.wriggling; it wont work! the Scot muttered.
The pirate came into view, she had long, flowing black hair
with incredibly pale skin, Woah, living dead! came a pixy
cry as he finished off what appeared to be the last of the
onslaught. The other ship began to take sail, leaving them behind.
Dont hurt me! Ravenna cried, Im not a pirate!
Were not going to kill yer, just tell us who you are and
why you did that, er, thingy back there. Captain Brooke
My names Ravenna, those pirates captured me over four
years ago, using my magic to raid ships
I, please dont hurt me,
this seemed my only chance to escape; they normally leave no
survivors, but you, you were all amazing! she spitted out,
trying to catch her breath from the struggle, I could feel the
magic here, I was, I was hoping I would be safer.
Aquila bent down on one knee, She needs medical attention,
Gryffen, some sugar tonic to get her energy and some proper
food for starters
you can stay with us, but were on a mission
to save some
friends, so I hope you can fight.
The newest member nodded as they helped her up and into the cabin.
Seraph, Seraph! Calm, down.
Sorry, but, but why would a Russian monk want to come
half way around the world to see me??
Tituba placed a hand on his cheek softly with her motherly touch,
Because youre Seraph Montgmry, n theres so much more tya
then you know me dear, so much
she smiled and kissed his
forehead gently, Here, take this, itll help yer sleep, you need t rest.
She handed him a cup of honey tonic, mixed with, well no one knew,
Teebas secret recipe. He drank it in one and walked back to his room.
Hell be zonked out in seconds with the amount you gave him!
Rowena giggled nervously, nervous for him, nervous for Belle,
nervous about their future as three. The prospect of losing one,
if not two, was eating away at the back of her mind.
She decided to have a lay down herself.
There there Pisky, youll be able to make some more best pixyland once were back on dry land
Surprise? How about being told Oh, Gryffen, by the way were going to pretend to be monks tomorrow to prevent an ambush of what could turn into a
Sir, theres, theres someone here to see you
