I smiled in spite of myself. "Freedom " the word smoothed over my tongue and seemed to dissipate into the air. "Freedom " I blinked in disbelief. I felt soothed to bone, and as if a heavy weight was lifted off my shoulders. Giggling in spite of myself like a fool, I lay back down on the soft bed in pure satisfaction.
I blinked in confusion and sat up once more.
This was not my bed.
I had my own bed, as did Gibbs, to which we were quite lucky to have considering most crew members slept on hammocks under the deck. It was quite a nice one, actually I always thought perhaps Jack had a respect for his first mate and his other first mate. (I was always confused when it came to my position on board). Blinking a few more times, I sat up and stroked the wood frame of the bed. It wasn't mine, but the intricate wood carvings on the posts fascinated me.

"AHHH!!!! OH MY GLOB!" Lumpy Space Princess boomed from Finn and Jake's couch.
"What is it LSP?!" Finn skillfully flipped down the stairs, followed by a very groggy Jake. Staying up all night eating toast and milk while playing Brakalinz Battle had him beat, and Lumpy Space Princess constantly munching on popcorn didn't exactly lull him to sleep, either.
"Yeah, what is it?" Jake said, crankily.
"YOU GUYS!" Lumpy Space Princess screamed, waving her arms in the air, "This wolf dude is SO. LUMPING. HOT!!!!!!" She shrieked, obviously in a "fangirl" state.
"What are you talking about?" Finn asked sitting on the only free space on the couch.
"HIM! JACOB! So. Lumping. HOT!" Lumpy Space Princess pointed to the television.
"Hey, aren't those the vampire movies Marcaline loaned to us?" Jake rubbed his eyes.
"Oh yeah. That one about that one Vampire " Finn said.
"And that one lady "Jake continued.

*Love ?* Tony rubbed his temples as he sat in Abby's lab on the table. Although he wouldn't admit it, this past month had been emotionally draining, and he had no idea why. That is, until he came across the word on Abby's black and red gothic shirt. A grinning cartoon skeleton held the bright word in its bony hands, as if to mock Tony of its sheer existence.
"Hey Tony!" She greeted in front of him, ponytails flying as she waved in front of his dazed face. *Weird he's never here this early and in my lab?* she thought. "Are you okay?" Abby knew something wasn't right, she could tell by his facial expression and the glaze over his eyes. And, well, Abby just knew these things. "Something tells me you're not okay soooo .what's up?" she clasped her hands behind her back and leaned into Tony's face. *He is COMPLETELY out of it * she concluded, cupping his cheeks in her hands.
Tony was indeed COMPLETELY out of it. Lack of sleep

"*Sniff* *Sniff* Glauauauauuuhhh!!!!! Finnnnnnnn Finnnnnn!" Lumpy Space Princess sobbed as she pounded the door with her small violet fists. "Fiiinn Jakkkeeee!" Her thumping slowed down as she started to breath heavily from exhaustion. "*Huff huff F- fuh- FINN! *cough* *huff* Jake!...." A moment later her breathing returned to its normality.
Lumpy Space Princess (Who was plain tired at this point) leaned against the door and listened.
"OPEN THE LUMPING DOOR YOU GUYS!" her manly voice boomed as she backed up a few yards away from Finn and Jake's door. "ARRRAHHHGGG!!!" She screamed, zooming towards the entrance.
Just then Finn opened the door, coffee in one hand while the other scratched the side of his head. "Hey LSP I- WHAAAAA!!!!!"
With a BOOM!

I woke up to the vaguely familiar smell of food cooking. I groaned as I sat up and massaged my tight neck. I couldn't remember much, but it wasn't like it mattered. Children only remembered what was most important to them anyway. After all, I was only six.
I stretched and yawned. The crisp air freshened up my lungs, and I picked my favorite dress from my drawer. It was very much like Mama's favorite dress, the aqua blue fabric and white lace one. The one Daddy had bought for her for an anniversary gift. I tied a pink rose ribbon around my waist. * Pretty as a princess *
I skipped down the steps, pretending as though they were the grand stairs in my castle. Some days I would be Rapunzel in her tower, others I would be the beautiful Cinder Ella, exploring her new palace. I loved those stories Mama read to me every night she loved to read them to me. And every night I told her someday, someday, I would be a princess too and I would have a big beautifu
Pirate's Life for Us Chapter28"Jenna..." a familiar voice echoed through my empty mind, beckoning me to conscienceless. Every part of my body was throbbing in extreme pain, and my mind was dizzy. "Jenna..." the voice persuades again, this time a more hopeful tone.Pirate's Life for Us Chapter282 years ago in Settings More Like This
I forced myself to open my heavy eyelids. * Where...am I? Perhaps I am dead? * My mind softly pondered. My surroundings came into the clear. I was in a cave. The stone all around and above me was a stunning violet shade; the stalactites glistening above me like stars. The opening to the cave was covered by dozens of vertical vines, so as to hide it's location. The giant pool of water in the middle of the cave floor shined an exquisite sapphire blue; a small, dazzling waterfall fell at the end of the U shaped cave. It had a homey feel, and I felt comfortable and safe here.
"Jenna!" the voice exclaimed with relief.
She was kneeling to my right side, applying some sort of bandage to my scar and wrists. She was alive...as beautiful as ever.
"Jo!" I coughe
Pirate's Life for Us Chapter24By the time we lugged the weapons up to the first floor, I was practically breathless. I tugged at my bag of cannonballs in my burning left hand, agonizingly thumping up each step. Ten cannon balls were easily fifty pounds over my weight, if not more. Coughing with exhaustion, I bend halfway over. The fear filled adrenaline combined with such enduring weights to drag up three flights of stairs was overwhelming my body.Pirate's Life for Us Chapter242 years ago in Settings More Like This
I could tell Barbossa was having the same problem. His breathing was wheezy, for his bag in one hand also had ten cannonballs. Just one more staircase
Suddenly numerous thumping occurred above, and the sound of shuffling feet and swords meeting swords. With a grunt I managed to swing the cannonball bag onto my right shoulder, almost falling in the process. Barbossa also prepared to climb up the last few stairs, until he froze in place. I furrowed my brow in confusion. "What be wrong?" I whispered.
"Shuuuusssshh!" he hissed, looking up at the ceiling that was the de
Pirate's Life for Us Chapter23My mouth hung open in shock. For a moment, the Black Pearl was deadly silent, save for the sound of crashing waves, and wounded Jack's heavy breathing. A thick, ominous fog had blown in, and we couldn't see ten feet in front of us. The only visible object for miles was the Jolly Roger, with it's torn sails and green glow, it slowly sailed closer, as if to tease us with its presence and danger. We were all frozen in place, bewildered at the terrifying sight of a ship we had only heard in stories shared in whispers, for fear of arousing such a horrific fable.Pirate's Life for Us Chapter232 years ago in Settings More Like This
The silence was broken when Jo sprung up from the deck, her sword and pistol in hand. "Get up, you dogs!!!" she yelled commandingly, "Gibbs, start lifting all of the Pearls sails GO!...Jack, take the wheel, we need to head in the direction of the winds strongest point, hurry!" Both Jack and Gibbs snapped out of their trance and scrambled to their positions. Jo helped me up from the deck, and glanced at the glow
Pirate's Life for Us Chapter22Jack sighed.Pirate's Life for Us Chapter222 years ago in Settings More Like This
He seemed a bit at loss for words. Judging by the silence of the entire room, everyone else was as well. I shook my head. We all knew we all had the same type of dream. It was horrifying enough to experience your own tragic death, but to have everyone you know and love go through it was another matter all together. The fact the dream could very well come true only contributed to my inner fear, gulping me whole. . The emotions overwhelmed me and I wiped my hand across my tearful eyes as I dashed out of the room in hysterics.
The panic engulfed my heart as I fought through the now pouring rain to the other side of the rocking Black Pearl. Stumbling to my right and left form the large waves crashing against the Pearl, I heard Jack's door whip open behind me. I glanced back only to slip and stumble across the deck onto the second main masts' post. The tears now gushed down my face, masked by the rain. I felt ashamed

"I I watched gah, okay I am just going to start at the beginning." I prepared myself for her story and clutched my coat.
"I woke up on the Pearl, just like any other time. I went onto the deck and found it to be deserted. That is, until I saw Jack by the wheel. I walked over to him, saying "What be going on here?" But then I realized he wasn't moving." By now Jo was crying again as was I. Yet she continued on:
"So I walked over to him, only to find that he was not standing by the Pearl's wheel, but tied to it. He had all these gashes and bruises, like he had been attacked and secured to the wheel. It was a horrible sight, but I was so relieved when he showed signs of life. He was breathing and his eyes were opening." I kept myself from crying at the images that formed in my mind. I couldn't bear to see h

My eyes flashed open.
I was about to wake up for another day sailing on the sea, only to find it gushing into my mouth instead. The tangy salty taste made me want to cough, but I realized that was most certainly not a good idea. My body was floating in water I was in the sea.
My heart raced at the situation. * How did I get here?!* It was ocean for miles in every direction I looked. There was a point where all I could see was black to each side. Even up and down. * How could my area be lit with such green light if even above me it is black? *
My lungs were struggling for air, so I decided swimming upwards was my best option. I thrust my limbs desperately, only to suddenly be jerked back by an unseen force. Suddenly my wrists started to burn. I looked at my hands. I was chained. *What? How? * I looked down the rusted chains to the darkness below, where I could barely make out what seemed to be heavy metal plates screwed into the sand
Pirate's Life for Us Chapter15The Queen Anne's Revenge was finally upon the Black Pearl, and the tension was so thick, you could cut it with your sword.Pirate's Life for Us Chapter152 years ago in Settings More Like This
Breaking the seemingly-never-ending silence, the Pearl was attacked upon with hooked ropes covering every square foot of her left side. Within the minute Barbossa's crew had overtaken the deck, pushing the three of us to a masts post.
"Well, well, well." Barbossa approached with a smirk. " Where be yer Captain?" He smiled. It wasn't fair we were outnumbered
Suddenly the sound of running footsteps was heard, then the glass windows shattered as a confident Jack Sparrow few through the air on top of a quickly made rolling contraption of some sort.
"HA!" he grinned as he touched down on deck. Gibbs, Jo, I and even Barbossa stood in shock as Jack knocked down all of Barbossa's men on the right of the deck, made a sharp turn, and did the same on the left. Barbossa's mouth hung open as he shook his head staring at his crew, either passed out on the deck, or cal
Pirate's Life for Us Chapter16Oh NO * I cringed and my body tensed. We all held our breaths, waiting for the unthinkable to happen. Minutes passed I opened one eye. "Uuummm "Pirate's Life for Us Chapter162 years ago in Settings More Like This
We all opened our eyes and looked around. Even Barbossa.
"Well..." he sighed after a few more minutes, "So much for that hope.ye got me" he spat through gritted teeth.
I could hear Jo in the background attempting to stifle her laughter. I just rolled my eyes in amusement and directed our finally caught enemy at gunpoint to the Pearl's bowels. Pushing him into the cell, I shut the door and stuck out my tongue.
"Ha" I teased. He stuck his tongue back out at me. As I scrambled up the stairs I stuck my tongue at him yet again and spat "MEH!" I could hear him mumble from below. So what? I can be a pirate who sometimes acts like a kid! Isn't that part of the freedom of piracy, yes?
Climbing back onto the deck, I saw jack rummaging through his crushed contraption, eventually pulling out a bottle of rum. He drank it halfway,
Pirate's Life for Us Chapter13"OY! Mr. Gibbs! And .THAT GIRL!..." Jack said. I rolled my eyes, as did Jo.Pirate's Life for Us Chapter132 years ago in Settings More Like This
"That there be Jo," I told him.
"Aye." He replied, "Jo " I stared into his mysterious eyes they were so rich and full of magic * GAH! *! My head screamed as I tore my gaze away.
"Captain, which direction shall we be headin'?" Gibbs asked. For all we knew we could be sailing in circles
"Mr. Gibbs," Jack replied, "Turn east just a slight bit." At first I was stunned at his amazing sense of direction, until I noticed his compass in his hand. At that moment I yawned for what seemed like forever. It had been almost two days since I had actually gotten any sleep, and the series of events that occurred had worn me out.
"Aye Captain" Gibbs replied with a smile as he left to turn the Pearl. Jo stayed and talked with us for a while, until she too was yawning.
"Oy " She sighed " Best be getting' some sleep. Savvy?" She weakly smiled with her snowy white teeth as she left to her quarters for

Jack desperately tried to get up from his bed. He stood up, but almost collapsed on the floor, had I not caught him. His breathing was heavy as he clutched his wounded chest in pain.
"No." I shook my head and made eye contact with him "You know you're incapable of doing this. Sit down." I commanded.
"Wish I could, dearie " He began protesting, but I quickly interrupted him.
"SIT!" I commanded once more, as I forced him to sit down. "I". I stopped myself just in time. * I love you too much to take a chance at loosing you again * I couldn't say that out loud not now perhaps not ever.
I knew Jack was not very happy with my decision, so I quickly took my sword from the trebling Gibbs.
Glancing behind me one last time, I met Jack's cocky gaze. He was still sitting on the edge, his upper body turned to face me. I bit my lip in anxiety. I didn't want to l
Pirate's Life for Us Chapter11What .what is this? * My mind pondered. It wasn't like Jack to write a letter much less to me. Do I dare read it?Pirate's Life for Us Chapter112 years ago in Settings More Like This
After much hesitation, I lifted the paper from the desk. At a first glance, his handwriting was quite neat, to my surprise, and it looked like he had not yet finished. I bit my finger in concentration. Was it my right to know what it had to say? What if it is to someone else? What if it was written too long ago to even make sense now? What would he think if he found out I read it?
I furrowed my brow in thought. For all I knew, this letter could be a forgery.
Suddenly I heard the door open, and I scrambled to place everything back where it was. I didn't want anyone to know what I was doing, so I tried my best to act as natural as possible.
"Oh Mr. Gibbs. What brings ye here?" I said in a "normal" tone, as my eyes darted to the letter and back to him. I prayed he wouldn't be suspicious.
"Oh, well, just came to see how the Captain was doin'

After an awkward silence, the muscular man lifted his thick wooden staff and summoned the men behind him. Motioning his staff toward us, he spoke a foreign language in a tone that sounded like we were old ship mops to be disposed of. The men all drew closer and closer, until Jack whispered to me, " I do not believe this is good"
"Thank you, Captain OBVIOUS!" I whispered back. By now the natives had their weapons out, about to strike. These were definitely cannibals, an we were on the menu that evening

Pirate's Life for Us Chapter 7"Aye! I see 'er bay on the port side captain!" Yelled Gibbs from the bird's nest. It had been a rough ride to get here. The sea had been rougher than usual, and we were lacking the main two masts. Not to mention we had to manage the entire Pearl on our own. Although it was nice to keep our minds at rest at the thought of a mutiny, it was close to impossible to keep the ship in sailing condition.Pirate's Life for Us Chapter 72 years ago in Settings More Like This
Yet somehow we had managed to make it to Harrington's Island. Or so we had thought. I had been to this island many years ago, but I couldn't recall it having so much lush green forestry In fact, this island looked deserted. "Jack This doesn't look like Harrington's Island at ALL." I told him.
"Of course it is Harrington's Island!" He smiled, "Where else would me compass be leading me?" I walked over and studied his compass for a moment. It seemed to consistently point in only one direction. I slapped my forehead and moaned. "What be wrong missy?" He said. He knew how I loath
Pirate's Life for Us Chapter 6"Jack, STOP!" I screamed. Gibbs was running back from the ship with a handful of pistols. His rich dark eyes reflected engulfing fear. I snatched a pistol and dashed towards the shore with fear starting to consume me as well. I saw Jack trot into the water without event slight hesitation. "No " I whispered.Pirate's Life for Us Chapter 62 years ago in Settings More Like This
"God's Teeth, he's been bewitched!" Gibbs yelled, and my body tensed up. As much as I hated to say it, the mighty Jack Sparrow had been bewitched by the cursed mermaids spells. He no longer had control. My heart throbbed as I aimed and pulled the trigger. That bullet was the only thing standing between the life and death of Captain Jack Sparrow. With tears streaming down my face, I watched that bullet slice through the formidable mermaids skin and her eyes slowly drain of life. She emitted a powerful screech that could scare even the strongest pirate out of his wits.
She fell back in the shallow water, and for a split second, all was deathly quiet. Then the rest of the mermaids

That's when it had hit me: * I never got my sword *. Thinking fast, I pretended as though it were there, and reached for my belt. It must have worked, because he took a few steps back. Then, unexpectedly, he said "There be no need for that, Missy..." And with that our foul adversary dashed up the wooden staircase. I was about to give chase up those old, worn, pliant steps until Jack yanked me back. It was a good thing he did, for Barbossa had send send down at least five muscular guards to keep us out of trouble... I would almost have certainly been severely injured, if not killed, by their petruding weapons. Reaching for his sword, Jack stood in a fighting stance. I didn't have a weapon, so I frantically searched the ship's bowels. I was curious to the reason for such a profusion of barrels of wine. They were stacked to the ceiling on every side. * What is he up to? * I thought.
Pirate's Life for Us Chapter 1 I woke up to the sound of creaking wood. As I blinked to clear my vision, I recognized the smell of salty sea air. I painfully sat up from the hard wooden floor, and saw next to me,Jack was waking up as well. We were both a bit brused and cut... * Where are we? * I was about to ask him out loud, until footsteps -or rather-footSTEP - was heard on the nearby staircase. A formidable looking man approached from the shadows. His beard was tangled, and his hair matted. I looked him in his cold eyes and glowered at his scarred face, "Barbossa..." I said through gritted teeth.Pirate's Life for Us Chapter 12 years ago in Settings More Like This
