Chapter 30- The last and final chapter! AAAAH!!! Lol!

Dis: I own nothing but Angeline and Alex but I would love to have the rights to the whole POTC that way I could own all the other fantabulous characters in this story!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Angeline woke up first. She smiled as she saw Alex peacefully asleep next to her, one arm protectively around her waist. She brushed her lips against his and saw the corners of his lips move. She did it again but pressed a little harder. His smile grew bigger, she laughed and hit him playfully, "Wake up ye kissy-face!" She said laughing.



He leaned on his elbows and just looked at her not saying anything but smiling like an idiot. He studied her face and tried to make a mental sketch of it in his mind of it. Her eyes shone in the early sunlight, her lips in a small grin. He brought a hand to her face and traced the scar that lay just above her eyebrow. He pulled himself closer to her and kissed it. He then noticed that her shirt had fallen off her shoulders, revealing the scars that were left on each one. He made a trail of kisses from the top of the shoulders and traced down each one. She laughed, "That tickles!"



He smiled, "Does that mean you like it?"



She giggled, "It could!"



They laughed a little bit more until Angeline felt a chill down her back. She shivered and stood up. "Today's the Pearl's last day here." She said rather bluntly.



"So you must have made your decision." Alex said standing up next to her. Angeline took in a deep breath and starting walking back towards the house. "Angeline..."



Angeline looked up, "It's going to rain." Alex paused and looked up, with every step she took his heart leapt with anticipation of her answer, his heart was telling him that she loved him and was going to stay but his head was sending him messages that read that she had to go with her family. He shook himself out of his thoughts and noticed that Angeline was gone. He looked down from the top of the hill he stood on and saw a trail of dust behind Angeline as she ran down the hill yelling and laughing the whole way. He chased after her and they ended up in front of the blacksmith's shop where they met.



"What a rush!" Angeline said laughing, her hands on he knees.

"Yeah!" Alex said winded.

The two stood in the middle of the street, which was barren and desolate because of the impending rainstorm. It started to drizzle so Alex instinctively pulled Angeline under the awning of the blacksmith shop. She ran back out into the rain and pulled him with her. She stood her face to the sky, her arms outstretched, and her mouth open. "Haven't you ever wanted to jus' stand in the rain?"

Alex shrugged and pulled her inside the blacksmith shop. Will, who was working on a sword in the back stopped when he heard the two outside, he stepped into the back of the shop as not to bother them. He watched as the soaked couple walked into the shop. Angeline went to the hearth and put her hands out to warm them. Alex walked over to her and embraced her from behind. He was just as wet as she was but she still felt warm in his arms just the same.

"Have you thought about what you are going to do?" Alex whispered in her ear.

She pulled away and walked over to the swords. She pulled one out and admired it. The handle was pure silver, and was engraved with designs of the ocean. At the top was a sparrow holding a black pearl in its mouth. The pearl shone in the firelight. Angeline ran her fingers over the black pearl, "It's beautiful, who made it?"

"I did. It's for you." He said from behind her.

"Thanks. I will treasure it always." She sheathed it in her belt and tossed her old sword aside. She closed her eyes to force back tears that were threatening to spill on her face.

"Angeline? Are you okay?" Alex said putting a hand on her shoulder.

"Yeah, fine." Angeline said walking to the smithy door.

"Are you going to answer my question?" Alex said turning her and looking into her eyes. In them he saw the tears that were there and he knew what her answer was. He just needed to hear it from her. She put her arms around his neck and pulled him in for a kiss. It was a brief kiss, short and sweet.

"Alex, I love ye. Know that." Angeline said stroking his cheek with a small smile on her face.

"I love you too, but what does that have to do with anything?" Alex said now confused.

"Alex, I don't want ta hurt ye but I can't stay."



Anger flooded through Alex, he accepted a job that he didn't want, nor need, to help her and she wouldn't even stay with him! "Why not?" he said angered by her words. Angeline turned and walked to the door, ready to leave. "WHY THE BLOODY HELL NOT?" Alex yelled to her back. She stopped.



She turned around to face him. "Because I'm not like you Alex, I can't...I can't follow stupid rules, and be proper."

"YES YOU CAN, I KNOW YOU CAN." Alex said more furiously.



"I can't, Alex I love ye but I..."



"IF YOU LOVE ME SO MUCH YOU WOULD STAY."



Angeline pushed the door angrily and walked outside. Alex followed after her. The rain pelted on the two young adults standing and watching each other. Angeline walked up to Alex and traced his cheek; he swatted her hand away irritably. Angeline looked into his eyes only to find the familiar angry streaks of amber in them.

"I can't stay because of this." She lifted up her sleeve and revealed once again her pirate brand and the tattoo of the sparrow flying over the ocean.



"What does that have to do anything?" Alex said calming down a bit.



"This is who I am,' She said gesturing to the Pearl behind her. Then she gestured to his ominous mansion in the background, "That is who you are."



"So! You can become part of me, part of my life, here!" Alex said.

"No, I can't.' She kissed him passionately on the lips. "You Can't Change Who You Are." She turned and ran away from him and from Port Royal.

He made a move to grab her but she slipped away from him and ran into the fog. Alex chased after her but she was too quick for him. By the time he got to the dock the Pearl had already cast off. Angeline took one last look at Port Royal, and at Alex standing near the edge of the dock, and took a deep breath. She was suddenly unsure of whether she had made the right decision, but she couldn't change it now. A solemn tear fell down her cheek as she blew a kiss to Alex and Alex returned it and watched as the only person he loved sailed out of his life, for what he thought was forever.
