"AmeliaI need totell you some thing you cannot tell arrow."
"What is it Tori ? "
"I talked to Naomi to tell her i'd be in Montressor ...she told me she was ill and wasn't sure why.."
"You dont want me to tell my best friend his wife is ill?"
"She didnt want him to tell him till he gets home. So i'm going to help her..please Amelia."
"I'll try Tori Im not making promises."
victoria hugged her sister goodbye.
"You sure you dont want to come with us?" Amelia changed the conversation when Arrow , britt and kitty , and the twins came up.
"No Amelia I think i'll meet you all back in montressor."
A few days later Amelia and arrow were in the captain quarters along with Britt and kitty who were playing with Asher and Natalia.
"got and three's?"
"that sucks.." kitty mumbled pulling her card.
"Arrow we should reach our destination as soon as tomorrow!' Amelia declared proudly.
"wow to think we live only three months away from it all along.."
"Quite we'll spend about and month or so on the planet exploring and collecting what we find."
"so we should be home in four months.." Arrow said somewhat sadly.
"I know you miss her Alton."
" I have a feeling something is wrong..she seemed distant with me...I love her so much amelia..."
Amelia thought hard on what she was about to say , "Alton I need to tell you somethi-" Suddenly the ship jerked andthrew them all to the floor.
"whoa!" Britt gasped.
"What the heck was that?" Kitty asked.
Arrow turned to his children and ordered them to stay in a closet in the bedroom.
"Doctor what is it?"Britt shouted over the sudden strong winds.
"The star it's gone surper nova!"
"Abasive actions mister turnbuckel!" Amelia shouted to the zirillian navigator.
"Aye captain!" He spun the ship away from the winds.
"ALL HANDS FASTEN YOUR LIFE LINES!" Arrow bellowed. Britt and Kitty went up on the bridge with Amelia to listen to what she wanted them to do.
"Britt help the doctor! Kitty stand by!"
"Aye captian!" they both shouted.
Thankfully they both had their hir pulled back , Britt's into a pony tail and Kitty had hers braided.
"mister Arrow secure those sails!"
"Secure all sails! bring htem down men!"
Andrew and Alexander dashed up the riggian along with the rest of the crew.
Suddenly a shadow covered the Legacy and they all looked to find a huge pieace of the star barreling right towards them. "Oh sh-"
"Kitty!" amelia snapped at her.
"I was going to say shoot..."
Britt and Kitty hugged one another causing Amelia to nearly laugh.
"Capteeeen the starrrrr!" ouns the look out shouted from the crow nest his many snake like eyes wide in terror. The Doppler gasped , "Its...devolving into a BLACK HOLE!"
"What the He-"
"I was going to say heck captain ..."
"We're being...pull in!" Turnbuckel struggled with the wheel and was thrown over to the side.
"Oh. no you dont ugh!" Amelia grabbed the wheel with all her stength and froced it around. "Blast these wave the sudcently erratic!"
"No captain they're not erratic at all they'll be another in 47.2 second followed by the biggest megella of them all!"
Amelia got a wild look on her face , "of course brilliant Doctor! we'll ride that last megella out of here!"
"Amelia what do you-" Kitty started till Arrow interupted.
"All sail secured captain. "
"Good man! Now..Release them imediately!"
Arrow faltered for only a fraction of a second always trusting Amelia with his life , he slowly said , "Aye...Captain , You herd her men! Unferl those sails!"
"What!" bridbran mary shouted.
"But we just finished-" Oxy started .
"Tieing them down!" moron finished.
"Make up yer bloomin' minds!" Birdbrain shouted as they dashed up. Kitty and Britt didn't miss the glare Scroop gave Arrow.
"He is up to something.." kitty murmered.
"Yeah but as long as Arrow stays down - bloody heck whats he doing?" They noticed Arrow was now up there.
"Aunt Amelia we're going to help Arrow!" kitty shouted and before Ameia could protest they were half way up the riggain.
"Where is he?" Britt shouted.
"Over there!" Kitty used her tail to help her balance easier then her older cousin.
'Thank you felinisa government for thinking I was too young..' She thought pressing on down to the other side.
she was at the mast when a strong wind blew and there was a flash. She seen her aunt fall from the wind , getting her breath knocked out.
Looking back she seen Britt digging her claws into the wood.
"Arrow!" Britt shouted and Kitty seen why Arrow had slipped from where he was and now hanging from his lifeline trying to climb back up. "Hang on Arrow we're coming!"
Before they could ge thtere Scroop came from behind the sails.
He started to cut Arrow's life line But Kitty leaped on his back causeing only a knick to be placed ing the rope.
"Kitty!" Britt shouted and ran as best as she could to get to where her cousin was .
"Britt...help Arrow I got this."
"Arrow reach for my hand!" she shouted down to him . Arrow reached as far as he could . "I-i Can't!"
"yes you can , hang on!" She streached and nearly had him until she was knocked back into the mast beside kitty .
they didnt get up intime before Scroop pushed him back over and slashed his lifeline then looked at the other two , "You're next!" and climbed back down .
"Arrow!...Arrow!" they called looking down but no signed of their friend anywhere.
"Britt! Kitty!" Amelia shouted and they slowly climbed down as doppler was shouting about the last wave and Ameia telling everyone to hang on.
the entire ship grew dark as they drifted into the black holeBritt and kitty were standing close to Amelia they knew it was her because the scent of her purfume mixed with wine that she had with Arrow this morning.
'Arrow..' how would Amelia take the news...
suddenly there was a boom and the Legacy shook with the force of the wave the rockets blasted soon they were back in calm space.
The crew cheered on Amelia and Doppler who had tumbled into the ropes flustered , "C-Captain o-oh my goodnes that was ... that was the most-"
"oh tish tosh...accually doctor your astronamical advist was most helpful." She smirked causing Doppler to falter more with the beauty .
"Well thank you I can help amandanomically - anamda- as-astronomicly. " he smack his forehead in defeat.
"Aunt Amelia." kitty tried to get her attention but Amelia payed no attention.
"Well I uh Congrate you mister Silver your cabinboy did and bang up job with those lifelines!"
'that why he did it!' Britt thought.
"All hands accounted for mister Arrow?...Mister Arrow?" Britt and Kitty cringed tears brimming in their eyes.
they herd a hiss and seen Scroop standing before their aunt. "I'm afriad misster Arrow hass been losst...hiss lifeline wass not secured.."
All eyes went to Jim.
"No ! no I checked them all!" he pushed his way through the crowd , to find Arrow's no longer there , "i did I checked them all ... I swear!" He pleadied with the captain.
Amelia glared softly at him then looked to the hat scroop gave her and cleared her thout.
"Mister Arrow was a ... fine spacer...Finer then most of us could ever hope to be..But...he knew the risks...as do we all...resume your posts...we carry-"
Asher and Natalia clutched on to Britt and Kitty very closely rivers streaming down their cheeks.
"Liar!" kitty yelled all eyes landed on the teen.
"He killed Arrow it was him! I saw him so did Britt he cut Arrows lifeline and pushed him to his dealth!" She pointed at Scroop.
Amelia looked at Scroop with narrowing eyes, "You!" She snapped her greif clouded her senses she had the nerve to shoot him down. Scroop was about to make a run for it when Andrew came up behind him with his bow drawn.
"You mister Scroop have been senstenced to the brig for the muder of the first mate!"
"I'm not sure about murder captain ... but very close. "
Everyone gasped and looked standing next to the edge of the ship was Arrow!
"PAPA!" both ran to their father.
"Mister Scroop your now sentenced to the brig so attempted muder of the first mate and lying to a commanding officer.."
"And hitting persons in uniform." Arrow added looking at Britt and Kitty.
amelia walked up to Scroop and dangerously whispered in his ear , "If you touch any of my family again I'll personally place you in the gallows!" Scroop had never feared a woman before but now was a different story.
Amelia made a motion for them to follow which they did.
In her stateroom she let out a frustraighted sigh. Arrow placed his hand on her shoulder ,
"It's alright captain."
"You almost died Alton!"
"Amelia it isn't the first time won't be the last." he shrugged off and stood up. Instantly Britt and Kitty ran to hug him. He gently hugged them back.
"Don't cry I'm fine all of you...Thank you two for coming to my rescue or I may not have made it."
"We had too..your liek a dad to us.." Britt smiled.
"Or a crazy uncle." Kitty added.
"Well you're both like my nutty daughters..or neices."
"Alright now you four run alonge it's been a long day." Amelia ushered.
"papa..you coming?" Natalia asked.
"I'll be along soon sweetheart."
After they left Amelia started , "Alton...what would I have told naomi?"
"Well I suppose a crazy pirate killed me Amelia.."
"Alton im serious.."
"So am I. Amelia you would know if it did happen but it didn't im alive as you are."
"Amelia as you said we know the risks...and we face them thats why we're spacers."
"i know but if I lost you I dont know what I would have done.."
"Moved on Amelia and help Naomi."
"Arrow...Naomi...Victoria told me she wasn't well."
"I figured.." he shook his head sadly.
"Arrow im sure she's alright."
"I know Amelia...atleast I hope.."
"She will if you don't get your fool self killed."
"I'll try not too " He winked and got up.
"Good night captain."
"Good night Mr. Arrow" As he exited Doctor Doppler came in .
"Uh C-captain I was wondering if you like to join me for tea?"
"Well Doctor .. Tea sounds lovely.." She smiled easily.
'Good night indeed...'
