No, he definitely doesn't.
But this was not a normal day.
By any means.
Today, he woke up with sweaty hands a sick and twisted stomach.
It was probably last night's stew.
It was also likely related to that ridiculously vivid nightmare of Scroop shredding him and the rest of the crew alive.
He'd never look at that ax crazy spider psycho the same again.
And so Jim was most definitely not ready for what lay under an old gray cloth on the galley counter.
"Ah, Jimbo, how lovely ta see ya up so nice an' early! The quicker we c'n get t'ese tings done t'day," the galley cook greeted cheerfully.
"Hn," Jim grunted in return.
"Well, someone got off on the wrong side o' de hammock today, eh?" Silver chuckled.
The boy declined to comment.
"Well, let's get a move on, den, and you c'n mope around after."
Jim rolled his eyes and started walking to the sink to start on coffee for the Captain and Arrow.
Silver continued, "Right, you c'n go ahead and take dat tra

"You've Got the Makings of Greatness"
Jim felt his stomach clench as he sat in the shrouds that night with his loose black jacket hanging off him once again. Over the past few weeks he had shed the coat not wanting to hide, but tonight was a rare occasion. Tonight he never wanted to open up again. He had opened up and for the longest time it had felt as though the sun had finally shown on his face until he screwed up again.
Jim's throat tightened as he fought the tears while he played with a piece of weathered rope in his hands. Inside, outside, and pull it tight. It was exactly the way Silver had taught him, so then how had he failed? He was sure he had checked all of the lifelines.
He squeezed his eyes shut and tried to remember. He'd triple checked Alice's that was for sure. Is that where he'd gone wrong? Had he checked Alice's one too many times and forgotten to check Arrow's? Jim opened his eyes and stared at the empty star field in front of him. No,

My boot hit Silver in the side of the head.
"Nice shot, Cassim."
He turned to me.
"What was that for?"
"You've been like this for the past half an hour!"
"Oh, sorry." he said, tossing me back my boot.
A loud scream made us all jump.
"Marina." Silver gasped.
"Silver, it's natural for a woman to scream while giving birth." Rebekah and I said together.
We looked at each other and laughed.
"They're right, Silver." Jim said.
"But what if..."
He stopped when I pulled my boot back to throw it at him again.
"Silver, shut up and sit down!"
Silver quickly sat down next to Jim.
We waited and waited.
Before long we all started to drift off to sleep, even Silver.
"Wake up, guys!" came Genie's voice a couple hours later.
"Ah!" we all cried, jerking out of our sleep.
"What is it, Genie?" Silver asked, worried.
"She wants to see you."
Silver went into his cabin. He came back out a few mintue

I went to Silver's stateroom, opened the door, and stepped in, shutting the door behind me.
"Lassie!" came Silver surprised voice.
I looked up and gasped in shock at what I saw. Silver's entire right side up to his soulder was a scar, a small side of his head was a scar, and his back was covered in whip lashes and even had a bullet scar!
"John,... what... how... how long have you been like this?" I stammered in a shocked voice.
He sighed sadly.
"I REALLY didn't want you to see me like this, Lass."
I went up to him, and he faced me.
"The scars on me side and head are from gettin' me cyborg parts. The whip lashes and bullet scar are from before that."
He paused and sighed again.
"Some o' the ribs on me right side are metal, and I 'ave an artifical lung."
Tears ran down my face as I touched his chest with one hand and ran my other hand down his side, feeling the differenence of his metal ribs. I was crying at the thought of the pain he must have gone through.
Then I touched a rib that was

In the RLS Legacy, me, Silver and Jim were securing the longboat that we were using for their ride of their life. When Silver was fixing his cyborg leg, Morphy turned into a wrench for Silver to tighten up that nut on the leg.
Jim was curious and asked Silver, "So, how'd that happen anyway?"
Silver glared at his right hand and said, "Ya give up a few t'ings, chasing a dream."
I was curious also and asked, "Can you tell us how you got those cyborg parts, Silver?"
Silver grew a smile at me, his favorite cousin, "Sure lass. It started when I was findin' Flint's map to Treasure Planet."
There was a flashback thirty-years-ago at the Spyglass Inn and Silver continued his story, "I was only twenty-five t'at time and t'ere he was, Billy Bones. Standin' infront of o' Blind Pew with tae map and he started ta run when he saw me watchin' them to make a trade. Now, I don't know what kind of trade t'at they were doing but, I chased Billy Bones to the longboats."
The young Silver jumped on the longbo
