Everyone looked around, trees touched the skies while cold gray iceberg cliff things were under our feet. But the worst part, it was freezing cold out. Ain't no one has been in a colder climate I bet.
"Where the hell are we? Hey lads, where the bloody are we!" Curly shouted to no one in particular.
But Jimmy had slapped his hand on Curly's mouth, shutting him up. "We don't want to attract any unwanted attention." Telling him softly.
Tootles and Twins were shivering from the cold, while Slightly and Nibs seemed to be fascinated.
"Jimmy? What do we do now eh?" I asked, wanting answers desperately.
"I don't know Kate, all I know is that we need to get somewhere safe."
Everyone agreed. We bunch of lads started walking in the direction Jimmy pointed.
We walked for perhaps an hour going nowhere in particular when Twins suddenly stopped and crashed down on his ass. "Wait up lads, I'm tired and my legs aren't as long as yours." He whined, looking down at his feet. Jimmy stopped, walked towards him and lifted him up, sertting Twins legs on his shoulders.
"Hey that ain't fair! Can't we have a wee bit of a lift too?" I looked up at Jimmy but he just shook his head no.
Finally coming to a spot where there weren't a lot of trees, we finally settled down. Tootles started building a fire while I climbed a tree, keeping a look out. "Lots of smoke...but no flames!" Tootles sighed. He looked at Twins wooden model of the Eiffel Tower, but Twins protested.
Suddenly I noticed that the smoke had climbed up to me and I started coughing. "A little heavy on the smoke Toots!"
There was a roaring in the distance, Nibs suddenly jumped up, but Slightly stated, "We've landed In hell I tell you, soon Lucifer's demons will rise up and record our sins, and will throw us down there into the everlasting fire of damnation! Where well burn in agony for all eternity." Slightly was being annoying again. More roaring in the distance.
"Slightly stop it, your frightening me!" I cried out from the top of my tree.
"Hear that?" Twins suddenly said.
Curly jumped down his tree and looked off. "There headed this way!" He was panicked.
"Kill the smoke." Jimmy instructed and threw a coat over the clamped fire.
"Hang on a sec, what if it's Peter?" But no one seemed to hear me as Jimmy grabbed a broom.
"Hide quickly!" I was already in my damn tree! While everyone went and hid.
I gasped, a gun was pointing at Jimmy's throat. "Buenos Dias amigo got any goodies?" The pirate asked.
I wanted to scream, to shout out for help, but I did nothing, because I was frozen in fright. "Hahahahahah!" The f***ing pirate kept laughing while I realized that we were surrounded by those nasty people.
"Get off me!"
"Hey let go, let go!"
"Stop it! Get off moi!"
Oh no, they caught everyone else! I thought. My mind was frantically thinking when I yet again realized something, I was not on the ground, I was still in my damn tree! Those damn pirates are so dumb they cant even look overhead! I was silently laughing now. Not daring to make a sound or move, the pirates moved on, dragging my best friends and family with them.
Suddenly Peter arrived out of nowhere and yelled out, "Jimmy?"
I cringed, silently trying to shut him up, the pirates still might be here. But I didn't say a word. Then I saw Peter smell a sock. "Tootles!" He said in surprise. Eeeeeeeewwww! Those boys know each others scent? That's just gross! I thought, butI kept my mouth shut.
Peter went out to look over the winter lands whatever you call it edge, and suddenly exclaimed, "Pirates!" He got up again and then a noise was heard. Peter took out his dagger and walked towards the noise. I checked my back pocket to see if my dagger was still there, it was!
I jumped, looking at Peter again and then saw him laughing. Laughing! What's so funny? I thought.
"Fox!" Fox? Fox was still here? Oh thank god!
"Peter? Where did you spring from?" Fox asked as Peter helped him o to another ledge.
"You have no idea how glad I am to see you!" Peter responded. I took that as my Que. to climb down.
When I was half way down the tree I cried out, "Peter! Fox!" They both swerved around and Peter looked around. "Peter, it's me!" I cried out again.
"Kate? Kate! Is that really you?" Peter had a grin on his face as he and Fox jogged over to where i jumped on the ground, but I sort of slid and fell on one side.
Peter held out his hand and I took it, letting him pull me up on my feet. A tingle went up from my hand to my shoulder. I blushed but still hugged him real tight. "Oh Pete, I'm so glad to see you here!" I said excited, both of us were laughing with relief!
"How are you Kate? Your safe, I was afraid you got caught by the pirates too!" Peter exclaimed.
I rolled my eyes and said, "Those pirates were to dumb enough to even look up. I was up on that tree the whole time!" I explained, pointing to the twisted trunk of the tree. "And Fox, oh your alive too!" How ever did they not see you?" I continued.
Fox shrugged, "Eh, I guess I was just lucky." I hugged him too and we kept on talking.
"Where the hell have we landed?" Fox asked.
"I have no idea , all I know is that we aren't in Shortich anymore." Peter claimed.
"It was that thing...in Harbottles wasn't it." Fox added.
Peter sighed and nodded, "I'm sorry Fox, Kate. It's all my fault. We should've never broken into Harbottles's in the first place."
"If Curly was here, he'd string you up." Fox added again, I glared at him and mouthed, shut up!
"I'll make good, i'll get them off that ship and home safe." Peter explained. I started smiling.
"Ship?" Fox asked
"A pirate ship."
Fox snorted, "It's a bloody nightmare. Huge crocks, spooky forest..."
"And now Pirates!" I added. Fox nodded at me, in appreciation.
"What's next? Swarms of flying beasties?" Fox suggested.
Suddenly there was a loud, very loud buzzing. We all looked towards the sound. "What's that?" Peter asked cautiously.
"Ohhh, what now?" Fox whined.
I looked to find...swarming beastings coming right at us.
"Run!" Peter yelled.
But right before I ran, I smirked and muttered, "What a stupid thing to say Fox!" And. I. Ran!
