It's been an hour that we have been on sea Raven was walking around looking around the ship. My right hand man James walks up to me.
"She's something special isn't she?"
"Yeah she reminds me of Amanda" I say
"Is that why you decided to save her?" He asks.
"Yes and plus she needed some saving I just hope we can keep her safe."
"In that case we need to train her and maybe with her powers she can protect herself better"
Just then Raven comes walking up to us. She's beautiful and her purple eyes are mesmerizing.
"So I was wondering where am I going to sleep?" She asks.
"You can sleep in my room if that is alright with you." I say. "Oh and allow me to introduce you to my right hand man, this is James"
"Hello miss." Greets James.
She just returns a friendly smile.
"Follow me dear" I say and start to lead her to my room.
"Your not going to try anything are you?" She asks a little hesitant.
"Darling I just saved you from a horrible man why would I bring you into another life like that then the saving would have been for nothing."
"True sorry I'm just a little on edge"
"Its fine dear. Ah here it is" I open the door to my room.
"Wow this is your room?" She asks.
"Yes, go ahead and make yourself comfortable." I say and I walk off.
His room was amazing almost everything was either white or gold the bed was massive although I have no idea how that would have gotten in there my bag with my clothes was there but they didn't seem to fit in this type of environment. I took out my simple off white dress it was long sleeve but it had thin fabric. I laced the dress so it fit well but not to tight I found a pair of scissors and cut the dress so it was knee length I looked through his clothes and found some leather pants that seem like if they have not been worn in a while so I took it in from the seams to fit me better and I was done I looked in the mirror and I almost didn't recognize the girl in the mirror she was a stranger she wasn't the scared girl anymore. I heard a knock at the door.
"Come in" I say as I turn around and then I was pushed on the bed with a hand over my mouth. It was one of the crew members he had crooked teeth a beard bad breath and a gut that made him look like he was carrying twins. I tried to scream but they were muffled.
"Now why is the captain so interested in you? Why are you so special? You see to me your just a little whore that's what every woman is." He says. I can't use the winds because if I do I'll blow a hole in the ship. There's no water and it's hard for me to move metal so I bit his hand. And he screams. I may not be able to use the winds but with them I can create a scream louder then a normal one and I do so. I try to run for the door but he grabs me. I kick him in the shins and punch him then he pulls out a knife puts his hand on my throat and presses me agains the wall.
"Now let's cut off your clothes and see what you look like" he says, the blade is just about to rip my clothes when I hear a squishing sound and he drops to the floor.
Standing behind him is Henry with his hook bloody from just killing the man.
"Are you alright?" He asks, but I'm to stunned to speak instead I just wrap my arms around him and cry.
Its been so long since I've cried. Father never let me cry only beg. And to be honest it felt good to cry.
"Shhh dearie it's ok it's ok he won't hurt you now, here drink this" he says and he hands me a flask. I drink it and burns my throat and has a rather weird taste but my body shakes less.
"Ugh what is that?" I ask
*Cough* "it's strong"
"Get some rest you begin training tomorrow in the afternoon" he says as he starts to take out the body.
"Training for what" I ask
"To be a pirate"
I woke up two hours before noon. Henry was sleeping on the floor I didn't change out of my clothes last night. I laced up my boots and quietly stepped out. I wondered around the ship some more trying to see everything. After about an hour I head back up most of the crew was there doing what they needed to do. Henry approaches me and hands me a sword that's almost half of me but is light.
"Your smaller so you need a longer rang. Also use it to your advantage since your small it'll be hard to hit you now. Sword up good." He says and he swings his sword at me and I block it. He swings to my head and I duck and hit his stomach.
"Good, but stand your ground it'll put more force in your punch"
He swings again but I miss blocking it and he cuts my arm.
As the hour progresses so do our movements. I have always been a fast learner and I can see how he moves where he's going to strike and I block but he still manages to cut me sometimes. He lunges for my stomach and inside step and hit his back. He turns but I duck and kick his leg and he falls with my sword pressed on his chin.
"I win" I say
"Not quite" he says and he deflects my sword kicks my leg and presses his sword to my chest. "Always try to disarm your opponent."
I get up and I notice most of the crew is watching. Then I see James bringing up the body of the pirate who attacked me.
"Everybody listen up" says Henry. "If any of you try to harm this girl your fate will end up the same as his. Do not question my motives when I do something. We rescued this girl so she could be one of us so she can be free not to be tormented. Now I hope no one has a problem with this if so off this ship." No body moved. "Very well dump his body"
He turns to me. "Let's get you cleaned up"
We go back to his room where he lays out a bowl with water he's about to put a rag in there when I stop him.
"Allow me" I roll up my sleeves and dip my hands into the bowl the water slowly goes up my skin and heals my wounds.
"Fascinating" he says.
"I really hope your not keeping me around for my powers" I says.
"No I'm not. It's just you remind me a lot of my love. She was taken from me and to be honest I never thought I'd love again. Then you came along." He says as he strokes my cheek.
"Henry please. As much as I like you I need some time please"
"Very we'll take the time you need just don't take to long love" he says. "We will train for five hours every day I will teach you different techniques and maybe you can use your powers as well to help you fight. But for now I promised a celebration so let's celebrate." He says and with that we leave the room.
