Chapter 24

The interrupted hanging and the escape

In the morning, Eric was to receive his execution after all he had done. Goofy and Donald were in the high ranks now. Donald saw white liquid his coat. He looked up and saw a red parrot. He then tried to shake it off the pole, it was resting on but it was no use. Doppler then began the proclamation, "Prince Eric, be it known that you have…" Eric was standing at the gallows and said underneath his breath, "Captain, Captain Prince Eric." Doppler continued, "…for your willful commission of crimes against the crown. Said crimes being numerous in quantity and sinister in nature, the most egregious of these to be cited herewith – piracy, smuggling…"

Ariel was wearing a white blouse with black to the waist and her skirt that was touching her ankles was light blue as her eyes. Ariel wanted to do something to help Eric but her father Triton and her future husband John Smith were standing with her. The redhead then said as she spoke her mind out, "This is wrong." The Governor sighed at this but law was law and they are bound to it. Triton then said to his daughter, "Commodore Smith is bound by the law. As are we all." Doppler still continued Eric's crimes, "…impersonating an officer of the Spanish Royal Navy, impersonating a cleric of the Church of England…"

Eric smiled at remembering what Doppler said and said, "Ah, yes." He then looked over and saw that the executioner was glaring at him. Eric looked down and thought, 'Well, it looks it's my time.' Doppler then finally finished the proclamation, "…sailing under false colors, arson, kidnapping, looting, poaching, brigandage, pilfering, depravity, depredation, and general lawlessness. And for these crimes you have been sentenced to be, on this day, hung by the neck until dead. May God have mercy on your soul."

Jim was wearing a new suit he had bought. (AN: it's the suit he wore at the end of treasure planet and he still has the ponytail and earring.) He knew what he was going to do today as he walked up stairs and Morph was following him. Jim then said as looked at them, "Governor Triton. Commodore." He then looked at the redhead with an honest face, "Ariel. I should have told you every day from the moment I met you. I love you." Triton and Smith looked at Ariel. Her heart was beating fast at what he had said to her. Ariel was so happy and he then walked away as the executioner put the noose around Eric's neck.

Jim was shoving people and the pink blob followed his owner. Then the drums began to sound off. Ariel didn't know what Jim was doing until she saw Jafar's parrot flying away. She then had an idea and said as she fell, "Ican't breathe." Triton saw his daughter on the floor and said in concern, "Ariel." Jim had got his sword out and yelled to the crowd, "Move!" As soon as the drums stopped, Ariel looked up to see what had happen and Jim threw his sword on the drop door as the executioner pulled the lever to hang the pirate. Eric then looked down to see a sword being use as a foothold. Jim was fighting off the executioner and he yelled at his pet, "Morph!" The pink blob knew what to do and he turned himself into a dagger to cut the rope that Eric had around his neck. Eric then used the sword Jim used and cut the bounds around his wrists. They headed for the exit and fought Smith's men. They grabbed the rope and used it to knock them out. They dodged rolled their swords but they were cornered by Smith's men as they pointed their rifles at them.

Smith said in an angry tone as he held his sword out, "I thought we might have to endure some manner of ill-conceived escape attempt" He then looked at Jim and said, "but not from you." Triton couldn't believe this and said in a stern angry voice, "On our return to Port Royal, I granted you clemency. And this is how you thank me? By throwing in your lot with him? He's a pirate!" Ariel then saw at what Jim had done and thought, 'No…' Jim then defended Eric, "And a good man." Eric was mouthing "That's me" to Smith's men. He then said with confidence, "If all I have achieved here is that the hangman will earn two pairs of boots instead of one, so be it. At least my conscience will be clear." Smith then said in a low threaten voice, "You forget your place, Hawkins." Jim leaned in, smirked, and said in a low voice, "It's right here…between you and Eric."

Ariel went to Jim side as she wrapped her arms around his arm and said, "As is mine." Triton couldn't believe his daughter and said, "Ariel!" He then ordered Smith's men, "Lower your weapons. For goodness' sake put them down!" Smith then said hurtfully, "So this is where your heart truly lies, then?" Ariel then answered truthfully, "It is." Eric then saw the parrot and said with a sly grin, "Well! I'm actually feeling rather good about this." He then went into the Governor's face and said, "I think we've all arrived at a very special place, eh? Spiritually…Ecumenically…Grammatically?" He then went into Commodore's face and said with a serious face, "I want you to know that I was rooting for you, mate. Know that." He then looked at the redhead with a sympathetic look and said, "Ariel…" Ariel turned to look at the raven haired man. "…it would never have worked between us, darling. I'm sorry." Eric then said to the Hawkins boy, "Jim…" Jim looked up at the pirate. Eric was admiring his suit and said, "Nice earring." Jim then made a sly smile at that. Eric then said with a straight face, "Friends! This is the day that you will always remember as the day that" Before he could finish, he fell over and went straight into the sea.

Doppler then smirked and said, "Idiot. He has nowhere to go but back to the noose." Arthur yelled, "Sail ho!" Eric looked to see the glowing sails of the RLS Legacy. He then swam towards it. Doppler wanted to know what the Commodore was going to do about this and asked, "What's your plan of action? Sir?" Smith didn't know what to do at that point and Triton said with wisdom as he smiled, "Perhaps on the rare occasion pursuing the right course demands an act of piracy, piracy itself can be the right course?" Smith then smiled and asked, "Mr. Hawkins?" Jim looked at Ariel and said in a low voice, "I will accept the consequences of my actions." Jim walked towards Smith and was waiting for his punishments to be heard. Smith unsheathed his sword and said in a stern voice, "This is a beautiful sword. I would expect the man who made it to show the same care and devotion in every aspect of his life." Jim then said in stern voice with a straight voice, "Thank you." Smith was leaving and Doppler complained, "Commodore! What about Prince?" Smith then said with an innocent smile, "Well, I think we can afford to give him one day's head start." He then left with his soldiers.

Jim went to Ariel and they held hands as they looked at each other with wanting one another. Triton then said to his daughter, "So, this is the path you've chosen, is it? After all…he is a blacksmith." Ariel then said with a loving smile at Jim, "No." She then ran her hand through his chestnut bangs as she said with the smile, "He's a pirate." Her father then walked away and Jim couldn't contain himself anymore. He then cupped Ariel's left cheek with his right hand and started to kiss her passionately. Ariel quickly returned the favor and kissed him back with the same passion as she rested her hands on his chest. He then wrapped her waist with his left arm. Morph looked up from Jim's pocket and sighed happily.

Eric was then heaved onboard of the RLS Legacy, he then looked up at Pete and the crew as he said, "I thought you were supposed to keep to the Code." Pete then made a sly smile and quoted a certain redhead, "We figured they were more actual…guidelines." Jafar then handed Eric's hat to the raven haired man and Prince said, "Thank you." Kida then spoke up, "Captain Prince" She then guided him to the helm of the ship and said as she put his coat on his shoulders, "…the RLS Legacy is yours." Eric finally put his hand on the ship's helm and thought, 'This is freedom.' He then realized the crew was staring at him. He then ordered to his crew, "On deck, you scabrous dogs! Man the braces! Let down and haul to run free." He then said to himself, "Now...bring me that horizon." He then started to hum his song and opened his compass and sang, "And really bad eggs…" He then closed the compass as he sang with a sly smile, "drink up, me 'earties, yo ho."

Back at Treasure Planet, Silver's monkey emerged from the water and scampered over to the chest with the Aztec gold inside it. He then took the medallion and is cursed again. He then reveled himself in the moonlight as a skeleton monkey. He then screeched at the moon to forever cursed.
