~~"These drums annoy me," I whisper to Elizabeth as we listen to a man list off all of Jack's crimes that he's committed.
I catch Will's eye in the crowd. He nods.
"Now," I whisper so only she could hear. She nods and drops to the ground. I scream at the top of y lungs and Will throws his sword to stop Jack from hanging.
I push my way through the crowd and draw my sword.
Did I mention that I wasn't wearing a dress? Or corset?
Well I'm not.
I rush up to where Will is fighting with the hangman. I quickly slash the rope around Jacks neck and cut the rope that binds his hands together.
"Thanks love," he says before falling through the hole.
Will, Jack and I fight our way toward the ledge that Elizabeth first fell off of. But we get surrounded.
I grab Jacks hand by instinct.
"I thought I might have to endure some manor of ill conceived escape attempt," Norrington says, "but not from you."
"On your return to Port Royal, I granted you clemancy," the Governor says, "And this is how you thank me? By throwing in your lot with him? He's a pirate."
"And a good man," Will adds, "If all I have achieved here is that the hangman gets two pairs of boots instead of one, so be it. At least my conscience will be clear."
"You forget your place Turner," Norrington says, "And Alex, I would've never expected this from you. Your place is back here with us."
"No, I don't think it is," I say.
"It's right here. Between you and Jack," Will says.
"As is mine," Elizabeth says as she stands by Will.
"Elizabeth," the Governor says, "Lower your weapons. For goodness sake put them down!"
They lower their weapons, but I still stay close to Jack.
"So this is where your heart truly lies?" Norrington asks Elizabeth.
Elizabeth nods and says, "It is."
"Come with me?" Jack whispers to me.
"Maybe," I whisper back.
Jack nods and looks up seeing Cotton's parrot.
"Well, I'm actually feeling rather good about this," Jack says as drops my hand and walks up to Norington and the Governor, "I think we've all arrived at a very special place, eh? Spiritually, ecumenically, grammatically. Always know that I was rooting for you mate. Know that."
Jack starts to walk away, before turning around and saying, "Elizabeth, it would never have worked between us darling. I'm sorry, but I love someone else."
He glances at me.
"Will, nice hat."
He takes of toward the edge.
"Friends! This is the day that you will always remember as the day that-"
He stumbles and falls over the battlement.
I laugh and shake my head.
"Idiot. He's got nowhere to go but back to the noose," Gillette says.
"He's smarter than you'd think," I say as I back up toward the battlement, "Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll be a bit more graceful about it. Goodbye!"
