Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest
'Run!' Robin screamed in her head, 'Faster!'
She could hear the hungry cries of the cannibals that were a mere few feet away as Robin pumped her legs harder and felt tree branches snap at her face as she ran through the greenery. She could hear Aracely's boots hitting the ground beside her, keeping the same pace as Robin. She glanced forward with a determined gaze and saw none other than Jack Sparrow, running frantically for the shore.
Her legs finally caught up with Sparrow as she felt the shift in the ground from dirt to sand. Robin barely had time to glance at Jack now running beside her as she caught sight of the Black Pearl. In front of the ship were two familiar people. Will and Gibbs.
Robin let out a sigh of relief and began to slow down without thinking until she saw Gibbs and Will running for the Pearl and then heard the yells coming from behind her again. With a shriek (and she finally noticed a ringing in her ears that was Jack's frantic cries) she ran for the Pearl which was already in the water.
Robin shrieked yet again from almost tripping over a shaggy dog that was barking at the crowd behind them. On instinct, she lifted the dog into her arms and continued to run at her same pace.
"Robin! Leave the mutt!" Aracely cried out in exasperation, she was still loyally beside her, trickles of sweat beading down her face.
Robin didn't speak, she was tired and worn out, but she kept her legs moving even when she felt she'd collapse once running into the water.
With much upper body strength she hung onto the ropes on the side of the ship and pulled herself and the dog up. She felt both Aracely and Jack grasp the ropes too, each on either side of her. Robin nearly fell backward but Aracely reached out a hand and steadied her.
"Robin!" She heard William's voice cry from above them and reaching down for her. She pushed the dog into his arms and he carried him up with a confused expression on his face. With the dog out of her arms, Robin glanced fearfully behind her towards the shore. The cannibals were gathered at the shoreline but they seemed not to dare cross into the water.
Jack grunted triumphantly and Robin finally turned to look at him as she felt her muscles relax. Jack, his tan skin glistening with sweat and tattoos and eye make-up, he was sporting his usual dreads and bandana, but something about this odd ensemble he always wore made him even more attractive to Robin. His eyes seem to emanate a magnificent shade of brown as the sun shone down on him. She felt the same butterflies in her stomach that she felt what seemed like ages ago and gripped onto the ropes tighter.
Jack grinned at the cannibals and shouted, "Alas my children, this is the day that you shall remember as the day that you almost–" At that moment a tidal wave poured over them and Robin nearly let go of the ropes before recovering. "Captain Jack Sparrow." Jack muttered with a cough before climbing onto the deck. Robin turned to her other side, noticed Aracely wasn't there and finally climbed up also.
She felt a strong arm grasp her own arm and was lifted up by Aracely.
"Honestly, Robin." Aracely said whilst panting and wiping her face with her sleeve, "Did you want to get killed?"
Robin sighed and leaned against the railing, "What ever do you mean?" She teased, a smirk playing on her lips. At that moment the mangy dog she had saved waltzed up to them and began barking. Will walked up behind it.
"You really think this is a good time to have a pet?" He said sarcastically, glancing at Robin. Robin pushed herself off the railing and hugged him. It obviously took Will by surprise for it took him a minute to also put his arms around her.
"I thought you were dead." Robin breathed out. Once breaking the hug, she reached for the sword she had dangling in her belt and handed it to William, "You dropped something."
Will smiled as he grabbed at it, "Thanks." His smile quickly faded as his eyes averted away from Robin. Robin glanced over her shoulder only in time to have Will stride past her and towards Jack. "Jack!" Robin quickly followed him, Aracely on her heels. "Elizabeth's in danger."
"Have you considered keeping a more watchful eye on her, lock her up somewhere?" Jack replied as he retreated away from Will. He seemed to not have even glanced Robin's way, and this simple ignorance made Robin frown.
"She is locked up in a prison bound to hang for helping you!" Will shouted, following Jack. Robin sighed, but followed anyway.
"There comes a time when one must take responsibility for ones mistakes." Jack shouted back. Robin furrowed her brows in anger.
Will looked exasperated. "It seems our mistake was helping you!" Robin shouted, Will's anger flooding into her. Aracely grunted in agreement beside her, crossing her arms.
Jack stopped dead in his tracks and hesitantly turned around to face them, "Robin." He drawled out in surprise, giving her a once over. That surprise quickly faded when he saw her expression, "You weren't saying that two years ago, now were you, love?" He teased, giving her a toothy grin.
Robin flushed just as Will pulled his sword out and aimed it at Jack's throat. Robin was so caught up paying attention to her brother that she didn't even see that Aracely had done the same with her own sword. Jack on the other hand did notice her.
He grinned frighteningly at Aracely, "I see you've met my cousin."
Robin frowned in confusion at his words and turned to a glaring Aracely. "What's he talking about?" Robin whispered.
Aracely kept her sword steady as she answered through gritted teeth, "I have the unfortunate luxury to call this 'man' family."
"I wouldn't say it's unfortunate." Jack teased but this remark just made Aracely pull her sword closer to his neck. He put his arms up, "So be it."
"How bout we save family matters for later," growled Will. Aracely put her sword back in it's sheath and she and Robin stood back. "I need that compass of yours, Jack. I must trade it for our freedom." Will nudged his head towards Robin.
For a split second, Jack locked eyes with Robin, it was like déjà vu the way he looked at her that she had to tear her eyes away to stop the feelings inside of her.
"Mr. Gibbs!" Jack shouted. Robin looked back at him and noticed he shoved the sword away and walked towards Gibbs who was steering.
"Captain?" They began talking quietly to one another and Robin turned to Aracely.
"You're Jack's cousin?"
Aracely rolled her eyes, "I've told you this before. And quite frankly, I hardly consider him one."
Robin nodded but her head was swimming. So in this new dimension, not only do her friends have their own back story but they have some sort of relation with the 'main characters'.
"What we need to do is make sail for Port Royal with all haste." Barked William as he strode over to Jack.
"William, I shall trade you the compass," Robin noticed him reaching in his pocket and walked closer for a better look, "if you will help me to find this."
Robin stared curiously at the piece of cloth Jack brought out that had a picture of a key printed on it. "A key?" She asked, she was now leaning over his shoulder.
Jack tensed up from her voice but answered, "Aye."
"You want me to find this?" Will asked.
"No, you want you to find this." Jack answered with a smirk. "Because the finding of this finds you incompasitorially finding and or locating in your discovering the detecting of a way to save your dolly belle ol' what's her face. Savvy?"
Robin could've face palmed at this moment but she just looked up at Jack in confusion rather than to make an abrupt and childish movement.
Will grabbed at the cloth, "This is going to save Elizabeth?"
"How much do you know about Davy Jones?" Robin had to move closer to hear Jack, he body now touching his arm, he again tensed up at this but Robin didn't care.
'Did he just say Davy Jones?' she wondered.
"Yeah," Jack said simply, "it's gonna save Elizabeth." With that, William walked away, obviously still frustrated. Jack turned towards Robin, who was still leaning on him. "Couldn't keep away, could you love?"
Robin squinted her eyes at him but moved away so she wasn't touching him anymore. "What's this talk about Davy Jones?"
"Nothing to worry your pretty little head about." He teased, but something was lacking in his taunt as he looked out at the sea warily. Robin furrowed her eyebrows.
"Scared of the ocean, Captain?" she teased back; he tensed up at this and quickly shoved his left hand into his pocket.
"I don't know what you're talking about." He stammered, trying not to meet her eyes.
She kept staring at him in wonder. What happened between them? What didn't she remember? Why did she leave? She leaned against the railing crossing her arms, still staring at him. He was trying awfully hard not to look at her until he finally gave up at glanced her way, "What?"
She pursed her lips but shook her head, "I'm just curious."
He kept his head facing the open waters but kept glancing her way, "About?"
She turned around to face the ocean as well, "About why I ever fancied you in the slightest."
"Could it be my good looks or chivalry?" He smirked.
Robin scoffed, "You haven't changed."
He finally turned to look at her, there eyes locked together in a meaningful gaze, "Never."
Sorry for the lack of updates, I still don't have a copy of Dead Mans Chest, but I found a way to watch it online. Again, sorry if it's not accurate.
I'm not sure what to do with Jack and Robin, I think I'm lacking inspiration, so I might not do the WHOLE series. I don't know.
Anywho, thanks for reading!
