Authoress Note: Sorry that this took me so long to get another chapter out for this story. I didn't mean to make it seem like I was leaving it unfinished. Here is the latest chapter of Love Prohibited. Hopefully that you enjoy it. There will be more Jack and Rose. Hopefully that I don't fail with this chapter and not lose my reviewers. I hope you enjoy. This purely is written without the movie or movie script in front of me. This is completely meant to be written by me with my ideas in how Jack and Rose will interact with one another. Perhaps even have James's name thrown into this chapter. Without further ado chapter 4 of Love Prohibited. Enjoy!
Docking In Tortuga
Will left me alone after our little talk. It kind of made me feel better that Will was keeping an eye on me, but I didn't need him to. I was old enough to handle things on my own. I closed the door and latched it shut so Jack nor Will could come in while I was changing my clothes. I went into the closet and found some clothes to wear. I slipped out of the dress I wore and ripped my under dress to wear the breeches that I had gotten out.
I slipped them on and pulled the shirt that I had gotten out on as well. I slipped a pair of boots on and looked at my reflection. I gasped. I looked like a pirate. This was the one form that I didn't want to see myself as. I hated what I seen, but this was the only way that I was able to keep guys from coming onto me and thinking that I am some kind of whore when we docked in Tortuga.
I ripped a strip from my skirt that I had torn off and tied my hair back with it. Now I really did look the part of being a pirate. God what if James saw me like this? What would he think of me? Would he think of me as wicked? I could only hope not due to the fact that I was in love with James, but he was in love with my sister. I could only hope that we would be able to get my sister back alive and well.
I unlocked the door and left the room. I slowly walked up the stairs going to the deck once more. I saw that Will was busy on deck and I knew that Jack was the one that was keeping him very busy.
"Oye Flower come up here." I heard Jack's voice ring out from up above. He was steering the ship which meant that I had to walk up there to talk to him? Not good.
I took a deep breath and began to walk up to where Jack was. This was nerveracking for me. I hated being on a ship so far and this meant that I was in serious trouble if my fear of sailing would not go away. I stopped when I saw Jack. I had to admit he was a handsome man, but my thoughts were still on James. I didn't want to think of another man while I was in love with James. "You wanted to see me Captain?" I asked softly, as I looked him dead in his brown eyes.
Jack looked at me. His eyes widened a little bit upon seeing me. He must've thought that I wasn't going to change out of the dress that I wore, but I had. He cleared his throat. "I 'uppose that I can't stop ye from goin' into Tortuga with us." He said, as he gestured to the clothes that I wore now.
I looked down at what I wore. I didn't think that it looked that bad me being dressed in male clothes. Granted yes, they were fairly uncomfortable for me, but I had to do what I had to do to find my sister. "Anything I need to do to find my sister. She is my world." I told him not even bothering looking up at him. "I would do anything to get my sister back."
"And what about Commodore Norrington? What do you feel for him lass?"
My face went red. I didn't want to tell Jack about what I felt towards James. It was none of his business. "I don't see how that is any of your business." I stated to him, as I turned away from him. There was no way that I was going to have this conversation with him. No. I wasn't going to allow that to happen.
Jack hummed. Like he had gotten an answer from me which he hadn't. That hum got me to look up at him. "You care for 'im lass. Yer his lover are you not?"
I frowned. How could Jack think that I was James' lover? I was not some kind of whore that he was use to seeing. I was a lady after all. I would never do anything like a whore would. I couldn't believe that now I was going into to Tortuga with this man. I was beginning to think that this was a mistake of me going with Will to save my sister. "I am not his lover!" I shouted, before stalking off down below to where Will was.
"Rose… Rose what's wrong?" Will asked, as I passed him.
"Leave me alone!" I shouted, as I disappeared below deck. I was not going to talk to Jack for a while. There was no way. I made it back to the Captain's room. I sat in the chair and looked out the window ignoring seeing the sea. I hated it when someone thought the worst of me. I always got it when I was back in Port Royal due to the fact that I was unmarried. People thought that I would be married by now.
There was a knock on the door.
"Leave me alone!" I yelled. I wasn't going to talk to anyone at the moment. I didn't want to talk to anyone.
"Flower I need ye up on deck."
I groaned. Of course Jack would want me on deck. I wasn't meant to be a sailor. I was just on a ride to get my sister back. Not to be dealing with an overly pompous captain and my best friend. I slowly went to the door and opened it. "Yes, Jack?" I asked locking my eyes with his brown one.
"You left in a hurry there love. Now why is that?"
I narrowed my eyes at him. "That is none of your concern Mr. Sparrow." My hands clenched at my sides. There was no way that I was going to allow him to bring James' name up again.
"Tell me… how do you feel about Commodore Norrington? You seem like you love him, but he loves another does he not?"
I glared at him. I am not sure if my eyes gave it away or not.
"Oh so you do love him. But he is in love with your sister. What a place you are in."
I stormed away from Jack. I didn't want to talk to him or Will about this.
"We will be docking in Tortuga soon love. Better be ready." Jack called out to me.
Sorry this is a fairly short chapter, but at least I did update. I hope that I didn't lose my reviewers. It kind of makes me sad if I do, but please leave a review and I will try to update this as much as I can from now on. Until next time.
