: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

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.
