Tears Don't Fall...

Chapter 1: The Night

"Oh my..." Armeria said as she came out of hiding from the 'skirmish'. Bodies of dead naval officers were all over the ship. Even though she has only been on the ship for six months, she wasn't used to the killing part.

"So, you have decided to come out of hiding, Arto?" Skulls, who was standing in the center, his un-buttoned shirt was covered with the blood of naval officers that he had just killed. He had an evil grin on his face. She smirked at him.

"I am not quite into this killing thing." she said. He just nodded.

"I know, but it's what we do." He said simply. She turned to see the bodies again.

"Who are--or rather, who were they?" she asked.

"Naval officers, under the command of some aristocrat who is...well, very mean to poor people." Skulls said. Armeria rolled her eyes.

"I still can't stand all of this killing." she said as she walked over to the railing, and watched the sun set. She heard Skulls move behind her, but didn't move to see what he did. Probably shoved his sword into the floor.

"Then, why bother coming onto a pirate ship?" Skulls asked, Armeria didn't answer at first, then she said.

"Two reasons...." She whispered. Skulls sighed from behind her.

"One is because I came to look for Luce. You knew that already." She said.

"Of course, and the second reason is...because you can't resist the incredibly handsome, Captain Skulls." Skulls laughed from behind her. She laughed mockingly.

"No. The second reason is because....I have nowhere else to go." She said softly.

Skulls stopped what he was doing.

"I mean, I lost parents when I was very young, and I don't have any other family...." she said, her voice becoming a bit cracked. She didn't hear Skulls move, so she guessed that he wasn't moving. Then, she felt a few tears escape. She wiped them away hastily, but more came at the thought of her parents' deaths. She began to sob.

Her sobs carried for a short moment, before she heard Skulls move behind her. She turned to see that he was coming right at her, and he pulled her against his chest into a soft embrace.

Armeria cried softly for a few minutes, Skulls ran his hand through her hair in a soothing manner.

A few moments later, Armeria's sobs quieted, and she pulled away from him. He was looking down at her with soft eyes.

"Are you alright now?" he asked. She looked down and nodded. Then, she felt Skulls' hand on the side of her face. She looked back up at him.

"Good. I don't like to see you cry....Armeria." he said quietly. She was stiff for a second, then she held his hand on her face.

"I'm sorry." she said. Skulls chuckled lightly, then, he put his finger under her chin, and he tilted her head up so she was looking right at him. His eyes had a look of determination in them. He knelt down toward her.

Armeria didn't move as he came closer, then, he pressed his lips to hers. He kissed her softly at first, then, he kissed her more passionately. She didn't know what to do, then, she found herself clinging to him. Her hands tangled into his hair, as one of his was in her hair, while the other was around her waist.

After a short moment, they pulled away. Neither of them spoke. Then, Skulls pulled Armeria into his arms, in an embrace again. He put his lips to her ear and whispered;

"Armeria...I love you." he whispered softly. Armeria took in a breath, before she closed her eyes.

"I love you too...Skulls."

And they kissed again, under the light of the full moon.

Then, Skulls picked Armeria up into his arms, bridal-style, and he carried her back into the cabin that they shared, and he set her down on the bed. She grabbed at the front of his shirt, which was un-buttoned.

"Don't leave me alone." she said, Skulls chuckled and he removed the blood-stained shirt, and he kissed her fiercely. She held him to her, so he wouldn't leave. Then, she felt one of his hands go down her back, undoing the backs of her dress. She didn't object as he removed the dress, and he gripped her to him. Then, he pushed her down onto the pillows, and he got on top of her. He smiled evilly at her.

"You realize what you're doing, don't you?" he asked in a growl. "You are about to lose your virtue to a pirate. Not just any pirate, but to the Captain Skulls. I wonder what your beloved 'Luce' will think."

She just smiled evilly back at him, and she touched the death tattoo on his chest.

"He already knows..." she said.

He chuckled as he began to kiss her on the lips, again. Then, he got up, so he was just an inch away, and he kissed her throat. Then, he moved back up to kiss her lips again.
