:Weightless: PirateSpainTruth be told...life on the high seas was boring.
Nothing interested Captain Antonio Fernandez Carriedo any longer. His fleets had suffered much damage against that...he even detested to say the word, English pirate, and it seemed to be just one mission after another.
He had missed home. The warm sun, the gentle breeze, the tomato fields. Those idyllic times before he had joined his nation's Navy. His wanderlust had been more than quenched, and even though he was going home, he wasn't all too happy. He knew that in a few days, he would have to be back on the waters again.
This meaningless...drivel was insane. There seemed to be nothing to look forward to, nothing-
Followed by many crashing noises, and other strange cries and noises, it dawned on Antonio that his ship was under siege.
And the fact that his crew was extremely unprepared was like a blow right in the solar plexus for him. They carried no riches; the crew consisted mostly of lackeys who wou

So many questions were going through your mind, but you couldn't say any of them. Trembling slightly, you crushed his collar in your grasp, as one simple word escaped your mouth.
Matthias looked at you, eyes wide. He tried hard to not cry, and he bit his lip to keep the tears in. He never meant to hurt [Name]. Never. He didn't have any intention of getting drunk, and waking up next to some stranger. He never meant for any of it to happen. But your words interrupted his thoughts.
"What have I done to you, M-Matthias?" Lower lip quivering, you stepped back, shakily, and loosening your grip, you leant against the wall for support.

You let out a sigh of relief, as you turned around, and smiled at him. He couldn't help but return the gesture faintly.

You didn't care about the strange looks and confused gazes that were being directed at you - all you wanted was to meet Santa.
You stepped onto the podium, a grin on your face when it was your turn. Santa's eyes seemed to widen when he saw you, and the colour drained from his cheeks. A small laugh passed your lips, as you gingerly took your seat on his lap.

He never understood what he quite lacked. Was it because he wasn't exuberant, like Alfred? Or charming, like Francis?

So...what was wrong with him?
Most people forgot just who he was.
And if they did see him...oh, darn. He didn't even want to think where Cuba might be. Flipping aimlessly through the book he'd picked from the nearest shelf, Matthew got lost deeper into his thoughts...

It was true, though, that since [Name] had entered his life, everything had become so much better. She was everything he could've ever wanted feisty and spirited, yet it really did seem like she cared for him, through her tough exterior.
A stray tear rolled down his cheek, and he wiped it away quickly, before [Name] could see it. He was supposed to be her strength, not the other way. Not again. He had to be strong, this time. Be the steady rock.
