This is a fantastic story! I've always loved pirates and you write so beautifully!
I admit I've laughed out loud a few time. Like when Michiru asked Pete where they were. "On a ship." "Yes, thank you. I noticed that too." I laughed so hard. or The whole "You carried me like a sack of patatoes." And when Haruka said "Now would you kindly shut up." I just about died. Absolutely haliarious.
On another note you seem to be doing fine with the nautical terms. I know when I first wrote a stroy about pirates it's a little daunting to not know the correct terms for everything so I'll give you a few terms that might help you.
Prow- The front of the ship
Aft- the back of a ship
Keel- is the large "breast bone" that runs the length of the ship. A form of torture would be to drag someone under the keel of ship. They called it Keelhauling
Poop deck- the highest deck at the aft of the ship
Quarter deck- the second highest at the aft of the ship
Main deck- kinda self explanitory
Crows nest- the highest look out at the top of a mast
Yardarm- the horizontal wood things that sails hang from
For mast- mast at the front of the ship
Main mast- center mast
Aft mast- near the back.
Mizzen mast- some ships have a foth mast at the very back on the poop deck.
Square rigged- The square sails
Lateen rigged- the triangle sails
Turn buckle- the stearing wheel
Quarter- to "Give qurter" would be to surrender
Belay- means "stop"
Belaying pin- rigging is tied to them and they're commenly used as clubs
Shrouds- the kind of web like rope laders that lead up the masts
Jacob's ladder- the ladder on the side of a ship
Bulwark- the edge surounding a vessels decks
Flintlock pistol- the gun at the time only capable of one shot before reloading.
Boarding axe- used to board other ships and commonly used as a weapon.
Cutlass- most common sword used on vessels because their short and they wont accidentally cut the rigging in a fight
Articles- Pirate articles are a set of rules that pirates sign when they join a new ship
Deadlights- a term for eyes
Pieces of Eight and Escudo coins- common curancy
Powder monkey- soeone who packs the gun powder for the cannons
Red hot- cannon balls that have been heated until the glow red
Chain shot- two cannon balls chained together used to destroy masts and rigging
Grenadoe- a hollowed out cannon ball filled with shrapnal and gun powder. It was the first grenade
Man-of-war - The most common war vessel.
Galleon- often used for war or trade. smaller than a man-o-war but stil large
Pink- a smaller faster trade vessel
Sloop- a small but very fast ship that only carries bout 20 men
Friggate- a war ship smaller than a man-of-war
Anyway that's about all I can remember for now and I hope it helps a bit..I'm sure you already knew a lot of those but never hurts to add them to the list. :) I look forward to the next chapter!

Liked how Ruka's crew thought she was crazy to try to escape the way she was suggesting. Liked Michi's reaction to the navy firing at them. Liked how they got away and how Michi stayed up with Ruka a little bit while they got further from the navy. Liked how Ruka shared more of her past with Michi and her comment about innocence lost.

This story has kept me reading for about an hour and a half. I love Haruka's character, tough but capable of care. You've got me so hooked I was sad that there wasn't a 7th chapter. UPDATE. Thanks.

hehe, sometimes, it's our emotions that end up writing the best of chapters. anyways, i can start to see haruka and michiru come closer together. update soon!
| Tripower chapter 6 . 11/24/2009
Great chapter, a little bit sad about Haruka's story, but we don't know about her anger against Michiru's father.
Keep updating and update soon! It's very interesting, I can't wait for more chapters X3
