For whatever reason, I so do not deserve this. As of right now my older sister and I are sitting in an old fashion prison with Will Turner and his soon-to-be-wife Elizabeth Swann. How we got here, I have no clue. All I remember is surfing on the California coast with my sister sitting on the beach then the next thing we knew, we were sitting in Port Royal watching Cutler Beckett arrest them for helping Jack. But, thanks to my sisters' hot headedness and anger issues we were sent along with them. Oh joy. And now we wait until Will is summoned. That's when the fun begins.
"You had to open your mouth didn't you?" I asked Rowan, her red hair spilled over she shoulders.
"You know fully well know what Beckett is going to do." She hissed low enough so I could hear. "He deserve more than a few harsh words."
"You slapped him! Then tried to kick him where men should not be hit." I told her, my voice coming shot of a giggle. She rolled her eyes and slouched in her seat.
"What do we do now?" she asked.
"Wait until Will is called. Then we stick with him. We know the movies like the back of our hands. Why not have fun while we're here?" I said with a smirk playing on my lips.
"You're evil you know that?" she laughed.
"Aren't we all?" I looked up to see British officers come into the room. They let Will out but I stopped them. I told them we have information that Beckett would like the most. They looked at each other before letting us out. We walked behind Will until we came to Becketts' map or study room.
"Lord Beckett, the prisoner as ordered, sir. And the two ladies said they have information for you." One of the officers said. Beckett stopped talking to what's-his-faces name and looked at us.
"Those won't be necessary." He pointed to the cuffs that we on our wrists. The unlocked them and walked out.
"The East India Trading Company is in need of your services ." Beckett said to Will. Rowan and I took a seat on the chairs in the room. Thankfully, we were given shirts and pants because when we came here we only had out two piece bathing suits on. "We wish for you to act as our agent in a business transaction with our mutual friend Captain Sparrow."
"More acquaintance. How do you know him?" Will asked.
"We've had dealings in the past. And we've each left our mark on each other." Beckett said. I loved this part.
"What mark did he leave on you?" Will asked. Beckett was silent but began to speak again.
"By your efforts, Jack Sparrow was set free. I want you to go to him and recover a certain property in his possession." Beckett took a drink from the glass.
"Recover. At the point of a sword?" Will asked.
"Bargain." Beckett countered.
"He won't give it up Beckett." They both turned to us. "He's smarter than you give him credit." I said with my smirk still on my lips.
"How do you know what I was going to ask? And who are you two ladies? Before, I never got the chance." Beckett turned his eyes to my older sister.
"That my older sister Rowan Raven. And I'm Si-Crystal Sweets." I told him.
"Your last names are different." He noted.
"Different fathers. You understand what war does and so do we." Rowan told him. "About what you were going to ask, let's just say that we know more than we should. We could be of use to you."
"You are going to send Will to find Jack's compass. In doing so, Will and Elizabeth are set free. Jack will be under the employment but I highly doubt Jack would agree. So, here's the deal. Will goes and get's the compass and he takes us along. In doing so, we make sure that the compass fits snuggly in your fat palm." Rowan said to him. I chuckled at the last part. This is what I get for a sister who works in the military. Beckett thought for a moment, looked at us then at Will.
"Jack Sparrow is a dying breed. The world is shrinking, the blank edges of the map filled in. Jack must find his place in the New World or parish. Not unlike you, Mr. Turner. Bring back that compass or there's no deal. And take them with you." He pointed to us. Will left and waved his hand for us to follow. Before I left I turned around to face the man I hate so much.
"Beckett, why are you trusting us?" I asked.
"I'm not." he smiled that creepy smile and with that I left. A cold shiver running down my spine as I walked out.
"So where are we going?" Rowan asked.
"Why should I tell you? You work for Beckett." Will said as we walked to the prison.
"We lied. We hate Beckett as much as pirates do. And you shouldn't trust him either. He lies right through those perfect teeth of his." I told him.
"Who are you?" Will asked.
"Siren McBride, at your service." I gave him a mock bow.
"I thought your name was Crystal Sweets?"Will asked.
"I lied. Rowan told him her real name. I just can't tell people mine. And you do well to know that this will be kept between us. Understand?" I asked him.
"My sister's name draws attention. Do you know what a siren is Will?"
"A mythical creature of the sea." He answered.
"Wrong. They are creatures of the sea. Where we come from, which happens to be from a different time, my sister was given a power. Now she is one and so much more. I on the other hand was born natural. We are your greatest allies and your worst nightmares. You need our help. Understand that." Rowan said. We marched down the steps and watched as Will embraced Elizabeth through the bars. Next thing we knew, her father comes in right after us.
"Here, now, you can't be in here." The guard said.
"I think you'll find he can." Governor Swann said.
"Governor Swann, still. Do you think I wear this wig to keep my head warm?" he asked the guard.
"I thought so." Rowan muttered to me under her breath. I chuckled and we watched Will take to Elizabeth about Jack's compass. I don't know how many times me and my sister watched this movie but I wish I had my remote with me so I could fast forward this part. But the one funny thing about this is Elizabeth's father stumbling over because the candle holder broke off. We giggled and looked away, trying to blend in.
"Let's go." Will said.
"Where are we going?" I asked this time.
"First to the blacksmith. Then to port to find where Jack has been. If not, we head for Tortuga." Will said. We followed him to the blacksmith where he changed his clothes. "These should fit you. I've grown out of them and I'm afraid I don't have anything proper to you ladies." He handed each of us a long sleeved shirt, pants, and black knee-high boots.
"We'll gladly take these over dresses any day." He led us to his room to change. We got dressed in his old clothes and tied our long hair back. Once we were done we went back out. Will handed each of us a sword and a pistol.
"Do you know how to weld a sword?" he asked.
"It's been a while but I think so. Oh, one more thing you should know about us. When it comes to fighting, we can take care of ourselves." I told him. He nodded and we headed to the pier. Once there Will asked around to see where Jack went. One man said that Jack owed him money. Another man said that he wound up at Singapore. Will thanked the man and we headed to Singapore.
He wasn't there. Once we got there, which took a few days, we asked around and that lead us to Tortuga. We could've told Will where Jack was but that would take the fun out of things. Plus, seeing Singapore and Tortuga was the highlight of my day. I couldn't believe that we were here. I'm still waiting to wake up on the beach with paramedics around me saying I took a great hit to the head. But I wasn't dreaming. This was real.
"Can't say about Jack Sparrow, but there's an island just south of the straits where I trade spice for….mm, delicious long pork. Cannot say about Jack, but you'll find a ship there. A ship with black sails." The Jamaican man told us.
"Can you take us to it?" Will asked.
"Sure. But I warn you. That island is not kind to visitors." He told him.
"Are you willing to bring them aboard as well?"Will pointed to us.
"Women are bad luck aboard ships but I'll make an exception." He said. We gave him a nod of our heads and he took us to his ship. Next stop, savage island.
It took us a day to get to the island. Me and Rowan stayed outside on the deck the whole time. Rowan doesn't like the sea all that much but I wish I could stay on it forever. Every chance I got I went to the beach and surfed. I was on water from sunrise to sunset. Rowan on the other hand, loved heat and fire. She stayed on land near the fire. She kept watch over me when I was out at sea. She always got nervous when we went out. I don't know why but she always is. It's been years since that time and now that we're….how old? I tend to forget but still, she needs to let go.
"My brother will take you three ashore." Said the man. I looked down to see the Will taking to the man from before. We were up high, looking the crow's nest or what made up of it.
"Rowan. Si-Crystal. We're leaving." Will called. We jumped down and followed Will to the lifeboat. The brother rowed us until we were a mile from shore.
"What's wrong? The beach is there?" Will asked. The brother began to talk in French and we knew what he was saying.
"He's saying he won't go any farther. It's dangerous. We have to swim from here." I told him. I got up and dived into the sea. Rowan was right behind me and so was Will. Once we reached shore we walked towards the Pearl.
"Jack! Jack Sparrow! Marty! Cotton!" Will called. "Anybody?" I watched as Will started to make his way to the jungle when I called to him.
"Me and Rowan are going to stay here in case they come back. Go on without us!" I called. "Oh, and Will. Shifting your weight might help a bit." He nodded and went in.
"You're cheating." Rowan said as we made our way onto the Pearl's deck.
"With him, he's going to need all the help he can get. Including cheating." I told her. She just laughed and shook her head.
"Only you Siren. Only you."
