Chapter 1

The day I met a pirate

Young Ariel Triton was different from the other girls at England. The girls over there would like to meet a prince or a lord. When the one of the girls asked Ariel who she would like to meet, the redhead smiled and said, "I like to meet a pirate." Her father Governor Triton was worried about her fascination on pirates. She read every book about them and memorized it. Triton thought that a nice long boat ride would made her forget piracy but she did not. She went on deck and made sure no one was watching her. Plus the fog made it much easier for her.

She took a deep breath and sang. "We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot. Drink up me 'earties yo ho! We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot. Drink up me 'earties yo ho! Yo ho, yo ho a pirate's life for me. We extort, we pilfer, we filch and sack. Drink up" She was then startled by someone who grabbed her shoulder. "Quiet, missy!" He hissed. "Cursed pirates sail these waters. You don't want to bring them down on us, now, do ya?" The young redhead was a little scared of this man. "Mr. Pete that will do!" Said John Smith. He was Lieutenant Smith and was a respectable man. Pete knew he was a lower rank and said in his defense, "She was singing about pirates. Bad luck to be singing about pirates with us mired in this unnatural fog. Mark my words." Smith chuckled to himself, he knew that Pete was a superstitious man but that superstitious. "Consider them marked. On your way." Pete grumbled and said, "Aye, Lieutenant." He then looked at the young redhead and grunted. He walked away and got his canteen pouch of brandy out and made sure no one was looking. He then mumbled to himself, "It's bad luck to have a woman on board, too… even a miniature one." He drank it and was content.

Ariel disagrees with what Mr. Pete had said and said, "I think it'd be rather exciting to meet a pirate." Smith smiled at this at how Miss Triton was saying was rather foolish. "Think again, Miss Triton." He then explained what pirates really are and what he would do with them. "Vile and dissolute creatures, the lot of them. I intend to see to it that any man who sails under a pirate flag or wears a pirate brand gets what he deserves – a short drop and a sudden stop." Ariel did not understand what he meant. She then saw Pete pretending to hang himself and she shuttered with fright. Triton saw this and said in a concerning tone, "Lieutenant Smith, I appreciate your fervor, but I'm, uh, I'm concerned about the effect this subject will have upon my daughter." Smith did not mean to do this and said, "My apologies, Governor Triton." He then walked away and leave because of family matters. Ariel didn't mind about it and said, "Actually, I find it all fascinating." Triton was worried and said, "Yes. That's what concerns me."

Her father never understood why she was interested in pirates. The redhead sighed and then saw a parasol floating on the water. 'Pretty.' She thought. But something else caught her attention. It was a young boy, who was about her age, on a piece of wreckage floating towards them. She was concerned about the boy, warned the crew, and yelled, "Look! A boy! There's a boy in the water!" Smith and the rest of the crew saw the boy as well. "Man overboard!" yelled the Lieutenant. He then got the crew to assemble to rescue the boy. "Man the ropes. Fetch a Hook! Haul him aboard." The crew brought the boy to deck and laid him there. Smith checked his pulse by putting two fingers on his neck and felt the heartbeat. "He's still breathing." Pete looked up with a horrified look on his face and said, "Mary, Mother of God!" Smith and the crew saw what Mr. Pete was looking at. There was a burning ship, still in flames, and it seemed that something or someone cause the fire.

Governor Triton was worried about what happened and asked, "What happened here?" Smith didn't want to start a panic on the ship and calmly explained, "It's most likely the powder magazine. Merchant vessels run heavily armed." Pete was not buying it and he knew what really happened. "A lot of good it did them. Everyone's thinking it. I'm just saying it. Pirates." He said in a serious tone. The governor had a hard time believing it and said, "There's no proof of that. It was probably an accident." Ariel looked at the boy and saw that he had chestnut hair. One of the sailors picked him up and put him on a table. Smith wanted to check to see if there were any more survivors and yelled his orders. "Rouse the Captain immediately! Heave to and take in sail. Launch the boats." Triton had an idea to keep her mind off of pirates, he walk towards his daughter, and said, "Ariel, I want you to accompany the boy. He'll be in your charge. Take care of him."

She nodded her head and walk towards the young boy. She notice a strand of his bangs covered partially of his face. She then tried to move the bangs but the boy woke up and grabbed her wrist, while being frighten of where he was. She smiled and whispered, "It's ok. My name's Ariel Triton." He was still shivering from the freezing ice cold sea. He looks into her eyes and knew she meant no harm. "J-J-Jim Hawkins." He stuttered. The redhead continued to smile and whispered, "I'm watching over you, Jim." Jim feinted and Ariel saw a gold chain around his neck. 'I thought girls only wore necklaces.' She thought. She lifted the chain and pulled out a golden medallion of some sort. She examined it and noticed it had a skull with an evil grin. She knew what it meant and muttered to herself. "You're a p-pirate." She was then startled by the Lieutenant as he asked, "Has he said anything?" Ariel turned around and hid the medallion behind her back so that Jim was safe from a hanging. "His name is James Hawkins. That's all I found out." Smith sighed, looked to the sailors, and ordered, "Take him below." When they took Jim for food and water, Ariel looked at the medallion closely and saw glowing sails. The pirate flag blew across the wind. The redhead closed her eyes and thought, 'I actually met a pirate.'
