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!

Peter's POV

I was standing by the bar watching the men run around like ants each with their own job. Most had left to find various supplies or to get the ship ready.

"Ya' pretty tiny, huh?" I looked up and saw a very tall, very scary girl. She had flaming orange hair and were plastered in weapons, half of them unknown to me.

"Don't tease him, Bella. He's never been outside Alcátay before" Dash smiled and the scary girl, Bella, laughed.

"Sorry kiddo" she said and ruffled my hair... why do people always do that?

"Have you alerted the men?" Anne... Dash was nothing like I'd expected. She was much scarier, but I still liked her.

"Aye. They weren't too grog-filled 'bout it though"

"What's grog-filled?" the words flew out of my mouth very much against my will (to tell you the truth I didn't understand half of what these people said).

Dash laughed, "grog is alcohol, and a drunk pirate is a happy pirate. My men propably expected that we'd stay here a bit longer"

"I expected we'd stay a wee bit longer. Be 'tis really our responsibillity, savin' th' seas? We're a band o' pirates fer gods sake. We're suppose t' be th' bad guys" Bella tilted her head and touched the hilt of her sword.

"Someone gotta do it. Why not us? And I'm sure we'll find gold in plenty in the castle"

"I like gold"

Suddenly there was a loud bang and the light streaming in through the doorway was blocked by a giant of a man. Everyone stopped their doing to stare at him and his companions. Many whispered, the name "Rauge" was repeated several times.

"Dash ye wee idgit. What be ye up to, leavin' 'tis early? I trid to make 'tis guy squeak, but 'e just kep' on whinin'. Hurt and ya'll pay. I am son o' 'tis lord and 'tis lady. Waah wahh waah" Rauge was a big man with quite belly. He had a large, scruffy seaweed green beard. His men were showing of a young man. He was all beat up, practically unrecognizab-... Cesare?
