Chance Encounters

(I just saw the 4th Pirates of the Caribbean movie last night and I just felt like I had to write this! Will and Elizabeth don't have a child in this. J/A, E/W)

Jack's POV

When Gibbs said that, I knew what was happening. Somehow, Angelica had the doll. I'm surprised she hasn't killed me yet.

I used the compass to see where she was. I had a strange feeling she wasn't on the island still. She's a beautiful woman, who wouldn't rescue her?

We started to sail through the calm waves and I just kept thinking of what she would do to me if she saw me.

Was she still mad at me for sacrificing her father? Would she kill me for revenge?

Or had she figured out how bad her father really was and no longer wanted revenge? Just wanting to be saved from that wretched island?

Wherever she was, I knew she was thinking about me. I have a feeling she wasn't thinking of my death though. She had the doll and she was hugging it, not hurting it.

She honestly did love me.

And I love her

Always did, always will

Angelica's POV

I stretched as I woke up. I ran a hand through my hair and walked out of my room.

It was actually dark outside. How long had I slept?

"Good evening. Have a good rest?" I turned and saw Bootstrap smiling at me. I smiled back and nodded.

"How long did I sleep?"

"A while. You slept through daylight"

I can't believe I slept that long. But then again, that was the first time in about 2 months that I actually slept on a bed, not the sand.

All of a sudden, one of the men that had been flirting with me since I got on the boat came running up with us.

"Bootstrap! There's a ship in the distance. What do we do? Captain Turner's in his quarters and doesn't want to be disturbed" Bootstrap walked over to the end of the ship to get a better look. He brought out his telescope and pointed it at the ship. I saw everyone getting ready to fire.

"Hold you're fire! I know that ship!" Bootstrap put down his telescope and ran down to the lower deck. I walked over to him

"What ship is that?" I asked

He looked at me and smiled slightly "The Black Pearl"

I looked at the ship from where I stood and I knew that he was right. It was the Black Pearl. Jack had gotten it out of the bottle.

But the real question was, is Jack on the ship at the moment?

"Can you see anyone who's on it?"

Bootstrap lifted the telescope to his eye and pointed it at the Black Pearl.

He pulled it down again and smiled once again and the glanced at the captain's quarters.. He ran to the helm and started to steer the ship toward the Pearl.

Who was on that ship?

Elizabeth's POV

I was standing near Jack at the helm and suddenly I spotted a ship.


"Yes, Lizzie" I rolled my eyes at the name

"What ship is that?" I had a feeling I knew what it was, but I could be imagining it.

Jack looked at it and then used it telescope and smirked as he saw the boat more clearly.

"That is the Flying Dutchman, Elizabeth" I knew it! I knew it! I ran down the stairs and ran to the front of the boat. They were sailing over here.

"Elizabeth" I heard Jack from behind me. Gibbs was now at the helm and steering the ship.


"Come on" I raised an eyebrow. I followed him to the sails and by now the Dutchman was only a little ways a way.

"Where are we going?"

"We are going over there" Jack smiled "I know how much you probably want to see William, and you probably wouldn't make it across alone, so I will accompany you."

"How are we getting over there?"

Jack grabbed a rope and grinned. "With this" Oh no.

He grabbed the rope and held out his hand to me. "Come on, I know what I'm doing" I grabbed his hand and he brought me closer and wrapped his arm around my waist. He backed up and ran forward and let the rope swing over to the other ship. He let go of the rope and we fell to the ship with a loud thunk.

"I can't believe I just did that" I sat up "I can't believe I let you help me!"

Jack had landed on his feet and he bowed "You're welcome Lizzie" I rolled my eyes and I saw everyone was staring at me. I quickly got up and recognized Will's father.

"Ah, hello Bootstrap" Jack said, reaching his hand out to him.

"Hello Jack, long time no see" Jack smiled

"Where's Will?" I couldn't wait any longer.

Bootstrap smiled at me. "Angelica, could you go get him?"

Who's Angelica? I wasn't aware there was a woman on board.

I heard Jack gasp behind me. I turned toward him and he looked pretty frightened.

I heard a chuckle and turned again to see Bootstrap laughing at Jack.

"How long has she been here?"

"Picked her up off of your island just yesterday"

I was beyond confused. Who was she? And why was Jack so afraid to see her?


I looked up and grinned when I saw Will standing just a couple feet away from me.

Will's POV

I sat on my bed and sighed. I made another mark on the wood of my walls. I was counting down the days until I would see my Elizabeth again. I heard some commotion on the lower decks, but I just shook it off. If they needed me, they would come and get me.

I heard a soft knock on my door. "Come in" The door opened and it was Angelica. I smiled softly and she walked in.

"Bootstrap told me to come and get you"

"Why?" I asked and I stood up

"Someone's on board that you should probably come and see" Angelica smiled.

"Who is it?" I asked as we walked out of my quarters.

Angelica didn't say anything. I turned and walked down the stairs and by the time I reached the bottom, I had seen that beautiful face.

"Elizabeth?" She glanced up and she smiled widely. She ran over and she hugged me tightly. I hugged her back and breathed in her scent.

She pulled back a bit and her lips smashed onto mine, not that I was complaining. I wrapped one arm around her waist and the other was tangled in her hair. Her hands were both wound around my neck and they were playing with the end of my hairs.

We pulled away at the sound of someone clearing their throat. Jack appeared behind Elizabeth and smiled at me. "Sorry to interrupt, I just need someone to hide behind" What is he talking about "But hello William, so nice to see you again" I nodded at the crew to carry on with their business.

"Jack!" I heard someone scream from behind me. I turned around and saw Angelica glaring at Jack.

"Angelica, darling, I see that you got yourself off of that island"

She walked over to him and slapped him across the face. "I guess I deserved that" I smirked. Haven't heard that in a while.

"How could you leave me there?"

"Angelica, I just didn't want you to get revenge on me for killing your father! I couldn't risk it!"

"I have learned that my father was a selfish man, and I wouldn't have gotten revenge. I'm glad you saved me. I really am."

Jack smiled "See, you had time to think about how selfish Blackbeard was, so you're welcome!"

"I said I love you, Jack and you said it back but then you left!" Now, I see why Angelica was so mad.

I glanced down at Elizabeth and she was watching the two with anticipation. Honestly, I was quite curious as well. Apparently Jack loved this woman.

Angelica was about to say something else but Jack wrapped an arm around her waist and pulled her closer to him. His lips found hers and then her hands were around his neck.

This is so odd
