Ninety-nine souls.

Three days.


They're not all that far from Tortuga, and the Pearl's making all possible speed with the wind toward port.

Jack's in his cabin, brooding over his charts.

Three days.

Not much time at all, really.

Listen.

Someone's humming.

For now, it's tuneless, trailing up and down and broken by giggles and a tear or two.

(shiver my timbers, shiver my sails)

"Hello, captain, my captain."

Her fingers are trailing along the desk, fingernails careful--almost careful--not to dig in.

"No monkey?"

"Miss me?" It's a little teasing, as she sits on a giant inflatable chair.

It wasn't there a moment ago.

Perhaps she notices.

Well, strike the perhaps.

"Kinda did a crummy thing, Jack."

"I know."

Red hair and one green one blue eye, but the voice is calmer than normal, and steady, as she watches him.

"But it was still crummy. For you. Not him."

"Didn't say I didn't," she says reasonably, watching a fish float by her head.

"I said it was crummy."

"You know."

She stops.

Watches the fish.

"...He has," she informs Jack, thoughtfully, "too many eyes."

And so the fish does.

"Do you think you can bargain it all?"

"Savvy."

She leans back in the chair and her eyes look at nothing in particular as her hair darkens, slowly, to the color of the wood of the Pearl.

"What do you give away, in the end, if you have to?"

"I think. I think?"

She stops again, and doesn't say any more, just smiles up at him after a moment, a little quizically, a little lost.

"I like you cause of that," she says earnestly, then grins.

"And I'd like you if you weren't. But shhh. S'secret."

"Aye, says I," she giggles, and rises from the chair that pops like a bubble behind her to throw her arms around his neck.

"For ages and ages."

She giggles and she laughs and she screams and she cries and it's exactly as it should be, really, and ends with another giggle.

"Are you very busy tonight, Jack Sparrow, or will you walk with me a bit?"

silver_flecks: (Del - Tortuga)
From: [personal profile] silver_flecks
"I like it there. I do."

There's something of a glint in her eye--the blue--green--blue again one--as her hair shifts, slightly, and she smiles, sweetly.

"We should go there. We should. And then when you get there here you won't be there there. Or we can wait. But I want to see the pretty ladies with their faces all painted up. And the rum."

"Yes," she agrees, smiling.

"But you deserve it, oh captain my captain."

She attempts to look like her sister-in-law, expression wise.

"No?"

"S'why you deserve it," she says smugly.

"After me," she sings, lightly, and pulls him through the door and onto the dock.

If anyone notices, well.

It's Tortuga.
