~~A loud noise wakes me from my slumber.
"What the hell?" I ask as I sit up.
"Alexandra, I didn't see you there," Will says.
"Please, call me Alex," I say.
"Come, someone must've heard that," Will says as he ushers Jack and I out of the jail. I notice Jack's cell door is on the floor.
"Not without my effects!" Jack says before we take off.
We run underneath a bridge.
"We're gunna steal a ship," Will says finally coming to a realization, "That ship?"
"Commandeer. We're going to commandeer that ship. Nautical term," Jack says, "One questions about your business boy. There's no use going. This girl, how far are you willing to go to save her?"
"I'd die for her," Will retorts.
"Oh, good. No worries then," Jack says.
Jack comes up with the mad idea of taking a row boat and flipping it upside down and taking it into the water.
"This is either madness, or brilliance," I say once we're under the water. The boat creating an air bubble for us to breathe.
"It's remarkable how often those two coincide," Jack replies.
No one talks for the rest of the time. We finally flip the boat and push it away, then start climbing the side of the ship.
"Everyone stay calm! We are taking over this ship!" Jack yells to all of the sailers on deck.
"Aye avast!" Will says. The men laugh.
"This ship cannot be crewed by two men. You'll never make it out if the bay," Gillet says.
"They're not alone. Two men and a woman, I think that'll do just fine," I say from behind them.
"Miss Harlow, what are you doing with a pirate?" Gillet asks me.
"Just doing what is right. Now, if you please," I say motioning to the ship.
"Son, I'm not just any pirate, I'm Captain Jack Sparrow, savvy?" Jack says pulling his pistol.
When Commodore and his crew catch up to us, they send all of their men onto the Dauntless.
Jack, Will and I take a rope and swing across onto the other ship. The Interceptor. Will cuts all the ropes, and Jack takes the helm. I climb up to the crows nest.
"Thank you Commadore for getting us ready to make way!" Jack yells to them, "We would've had a hard time with it by ourselves!"
"Yes! And I hope you didn't forget how to turn!" I yell jokingly from above. I see his dumbfounded facial expression and laugh.
Jack disabled the rudder chain. So no matter how hard they try, they can't turn.
I climb down from the crows nest just in time for Jack to dangle will from the mast.
"Jack Sparrow! What are you doing?!" I practically scream at him.
"Just gettin' my point across," he replies, "Now as long as you're just hanging there, pay attention. The only rules that matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can't do. For instance, you can accept that your father was a pirate and a good man, or you can't. But pirate is in your blood boy, so you'll have to square with that some day. And me for example, I could let you drown, but I can't bring this ship into Tortuga all by my onesie, savvy?"
Jack turns the wheel and the mast swings back around and Will drops onto the deck.
"So, can you sail under the command of a pirate or can you not?" Jack asks him as he hands Will a sword.
"Tortuga?" Will asks.
"Tortuga," Jack repeats.
