The Whore, the Knights & the Librarian

Marie Haine is thirteen summers and the youngest daugther of the Duke and Duchess of Pretonia. She is newly betrothed to the King of The Moonlight Isles and will be his 9th wife. Rumours are that King Francis XVIII has killed and devoured Marie's predecessors but her parents insist that she must go through with the marriage. They have gone so far as to lock her in her room - guarded day and night - because the last time they tried to wed off a daugther, she fled and vanished. Now Marie's three brothers Nikolaii, Cesare and Peter travel to her missing sister - who is now Captain of one of the most infamous pirate ship in The Five Seas - to get her help and free Marie from her nearly sealed destiny. NB! I am writing this for ma'self, and there currently isn't anyone else who reads this so as the lazy person I am I haven't editted any of it. Should there at some point be someone out there who actually reads this and actually cares about whether it's editted... then please do tell me!

7. Bloody and beaten

Cesare's POV

Dash roared, "Rauge. You will pay for this. Release him" she sounded awfully calm considering the fact that this man - at least three times her size - was holding her younger brother, bloody and beaten, in his custody.

Rauge laughed, "Ye come with so many emp'y threats, many even af'er your standards" one of the men in the bare drew his sword, "oh, no no no. Drop tha' wee stick, frien'. If ya' value 'tis rat's life" he gestured at me and Dash shot the man with sword a look that made him step down.

"What do you want, Rauge?"

"I be needin' ta fuck ye, lovely" Rauge laughed at the expression of shock showing on practically every face in the room. Apparently this wasn't something you usually said in Dash's hearing. Seth, who'd been standin a bit in the back, suddenly stood beside Dash a hand protectively around her waiste. "Don't look so shocked, whore" he said clearly referring to Seth, whatever it meant, "ye really think ye can keep 'tis woman satisfied, huh? Ye're dumber than I though'. Nay, she need a real man, right, men?" his companions laughed.

Dash smiled overbearingly. She stepped out of Seth's embrace and toward Rauge, "so, you wanna fuck me, huh?" she said seductively, "well, I am in the needin' of a good fuck" out of nowhere she took two fast steps and before anyone realized what had just happened she'd tackled the whale of a man and held a silver dagger to his throat. The men gasped as Rauge unsuccesfully tried to get out of her grasp.

"Bitch" he spit out the words causing her to spill a few drops of blood from his neck. The blade was shining.

"Now. It seems like the party's changed, huh. What do you say, Rauge? Shall we make a little trade"

Rauge coughed, "release the rat" he said and his men reacted. I was thrown across the floor and blacked out.

Everything was a blur. I didn't really understand what was happening. "Wake up, Cesare. You're pretty beat up, but I will get you back on horse in no time" the voice was soothing and feminine. I didn't recognize it. 

"Where-... where-.. am-.. where am-... am I?" I tried to speak but the words got all messed up.

"Shh. You shouldn't talk. You're on the Savage in the surgeon's room. I am Sofie"

I blacked out again. When I woke I felt something cold and wet on my forehead. I sat up, my visions still blured. A hand pressed me back down. I finally managed to open my eyes completely.

Sitting on a chair in front of me was a young girl, probably around 16-ish. She was dressed in a plain white dress with some sort of grey nitted shirt over. She was smiling, she had a pretty smile. Her eyes were green and she was wearing glasses. Her hair was short and blondish. She looked charming and sweet, like someone you'd wanna befriend.

"Hello. I am Sofie" she said.

"I know" I said my voice groggy with sleep, "I mean.. Uhm.. you've said.. or.. uh" I sounded pretty dumbstruck and she laughed cheerfully.

"You probably feel a bit" she scratched her head, "dizzy?" I nodded and suddenly felt very hungry and as if she'd read my mind she held up a plate of spaghetti with some sort of brown sluggish sauce, had I not been this hungry and had she not been so caring and sweet, I might've declined, but now I just grabbed it and dug in. "You're hungry" she said with a smile. Sofie seemed like a buoyant person. I liked her.

After I'd finished eating I wanted to ask her more question but before I knew I'd fallen asleep again.

"How is he" the voice belonged to Dash. She sound honestly concerned. I almost smiled but then I remembered that I was sleeping.

"He's gonna be alright. Just need a few days of sleep" an unknown male voice answered.

"Did he eat" Dash asked.

"Yes. He ate like it was his first meal in years" Sofie said and Dash laughed, "really?" she said, "really" Sofie said.

"I can't believe it, he's always been very picky and that, excuse me, didn't exactly look like the stuff we're used to", Nikolaii's voice was cheery and unaffected by the fact that I'd just been beat through and through by a group of messed up pirates. I was offended.

"Don't let Sally hear you say that. She'll hit you in the head with her giant spoon" Speedy? How any people were in this room and howcome they didn't sound more concerned. I'm blacking out for Christ's sake.

"I think we should let him rest" I noted that I'd better thank Sofie for making them leave.

"What time is it?" I asked later, my eyes still closed.

"I'm not sure. It's in the evening, I can't tell you the exact hour. Sorry" her appoligize was very genuine and a shot of shame shot through me.

"It's okay" I said with a grimace that was supposed to be a smile. I tried to sit up but a violent pain made me fall back.

"I'm sorry. I've given you as many painkilling herbs as I dare. You were in pretty bad state when they brought you to me" she gave me cup of something warm and I must have looked suspicious, "it's pebermint tea. My own brew" she smiled shyly.

I took the cup and drank in short drags, "it's good" I smiled reassuringly making her blush.

"Where's Nikolaii and Speedy... and Dash?" I asked.

"Oh.. uhm. Dash is up on deck and I think you're brothers are joining the crew for dinner" I was hungry and again she read my mind suddenly looking embarrassed, "I am so sorry. I didn't.. I.. uhm. I'll find you something to eat" and with those words she was gone. I laid back and closed my eyes a bit.

"Cesare. You shouldn't sleep again. We have to get you back up"

I opened my eyes and found Sofie holding up a spoon with soup. Though I felt perfectly capable of eating by myself I liked the way she cared so genuinly for me.
