"Well first you can help me get the anchour up and then you can go and climb up there and let the sails down so we can get out of here." Turning away from Kiara, El grabs the anchour chain with her and pulls it off the bottom and between them they just about swing it up onto the boat.
"Right you get the sails down and I'll steer us out of here and hopefully we wont hit too much" Heading up to the helm El watched Kiara climb up the rigging even making that look easy. 'bitch' she muttered to herself and left it there. Grabbing the wheel she turned the ship out of the docks and started her out on the open waters.
Shouting towards the doors for below decks hoping they would hear her "Hey Turtle we've left the docks and are nearly on open waters. I hope you know what your doing." Turning back around she blew out the lamp beside the wheel and started forwards hopeing if anything was there she might see it in time.
L.T. walked onto the dock after hearing El call out that they where leaving the dock. L.T. walked up and walked up next to El and smiled. "I feels good to finally be back on the sea like this..." L.T. said.
Shouts caused L.T. to turn around and he watched as a ship without sails moved toward his new ship. A man, one with a windmill on his back, stood up and yelled, "I'll kill you Fan-Boy, and that turtle of a pirate!" L.T. rubbed his eyes and he said, "Oh great... it's the WindMill Pirates..."
The Captain removed the four pieces of the windmill, and attached them, making a large blade. He let out a yell to aim the cannons, and L.T. moved forward, his shield in hand as he faced the ship. "Cool sword... kinda big... It must be to destroy ships! I want it!" L.T. said, smiling.
Before the cannons could fire, a large sea king rose from the sea, and bit down on the sailless boat, screams of pain heard as the ship started to sink. The large windmill blade was flung from the ship and landed in the deck of the Kame Pirate's new ship, right behind L.T.
"Scary..." L.T. said, turning to face the large blade. The false windmill patterns on the blade fell off, and L.T. smiled and said, "Alright! Let's get going!" A bit of water showered L.T. and the deck around him, and L.T. could see, with the help of the rising sun, the shadow of the sea king behind him.
L.T. jumped up and pulled the large, 16 foot blade, and L.T. turned around, the blade, flat side out. The large blade kept the sea king from biting down on the boat, but the force had pushed L.T. down into the deck, cracking several parts.
"Umm... I could use help!" L.T. called out, his body slowly giving way to the strength of the sea king. "Somebody! Get this thing off me!"
A small dingy started sailing toward the ship. There were two men on it. Suddenly they turned into animals and lunged straight at the sea king. One kicked the sea kings neck while the other jumped right on his head with a strong blow. The first man then jumped into the sea kings mouth and punched full force. The second kicked it in the neck. The sea king fell unconscious into the water.
The two fat men landed onto the crews ship. "You thought you could leave port without payiiiiiiiing?!" The first one said.
"I guess," the whole crew said in unison.
"Wrong!" the second man said. "We are the sons of the men who own this harbor," The first on said. "you owe us money!" said the second. " But first we have a deal to make you," They both said.
"What?" Said LT.
"We would like to take part in your adventure," they both said.
L.T. looked at the two, and with the large sword now resting on his back he walked forward. "You know... I highly doubt I'll part with any of my treasure unless it is nessecary."
He looked at the two menicingly and said, "I'll kill you where you stand, unless you agree we don't owe any money."
L.T. leaned in toward the two and the sword was soon inbetween the two. "Understand, I'll never pay a stupid tax, I'm a pirate, and we don't like to pay things."
L.T. walked over and sat down on the side of the boat, his legs hitting against the side. "Well... I guess I have no problem... but if you bring up the money thing again... I'll see how long you can stay above the water before you sink..."
Kiara laughed as she looked down from her post by the flags as L.T. fought the creature. She knew he would get himself out of trouble eventually, and if it became that bad, she would jump down and help. Crossing her arms and laying them one the edge as she leaned over on them to see better, her eyes widened as she saw the two obese men intervene. Her face showed distrust and disappointment, for some reason she felt like she couldn’t trust those two.
‘Awwww they ruined the fun, party poopers,’
She looked closer as they engaged conversation with L.T. and listened in. If they tried any moves that caused damage to her captain, or any of the first people to show kindness to her, she would have to kill some people tonight.
Her eyes widened a great deal more and her hand went over her mouth. Those two... they had tried to kill and turn her in once! She looked around the crows nest she was in for her cloak, which she had taken off and allowed everyone to see her face. Now that they were here, they would try to turn her in. She ducked down as one of them look up at her masked face. She hid there, hoping the others wouldn’t say her name or ask why the hood was back, but she had to talk to L.T..
She jumped down from her hiding spot to a place on deck hidden in shadows, landing silently and softly, she slipped through the shadows, feeling eyes on her, and she was almost to L.T., until she froze when a voice called out and someone stepped in front of her. She winced as she heard who it was, making sure her hood was secure. She peered at him, glancing sideways, hoping Rez or someone would emerge and help her.
“Well you look mighty sneaky. Reminds me of this girl I once saw. Had a pretty big bounty on her head. Why dont ya show up your pretty face, gal?”
She cowered almost under his hard gaze, and as she moved to escape, he grabbed her wrist. He looked kind of scary, and she once again panicked and looked around deck again. She tried pulling out of his grip, but it was too strong and he squeezed harder. She moved her hand up to punch or slap him, but only for that one to be held in place as well. He blew strongly causing her hood to come off. He smirked, knowing who it was, still holding a bit of a grudge for her escaping last time they met up. She glared up at him, as his face grew angry. He used one hand to grab one hand to hold her wrists, and the other reached to push her bangs out of her frightened eyes, only for it to slap her rather hard.
“You guys see this little devil? Sneaking around our ship. I should just throw you in the ocean wouldnt that be fun? You guys want me to dump the trash? Or turn her in for her bounty?”
She frantically looked around for help as he started to drag her towards the edge. She tried to get out of his grasp and jammed her eyes shut as they reached the edge. Her hands balled into fists.
A hand came down upon the shoulder of the boy messing with Kiara, and it squeezed, and if he added a bit more pressure, he would break the man's shoulder.
"Another thing boy... if you dare touch one of my crew mates like this, in anger or spite, you'll be going for the swim." L.T. said, his voice in a rage.
He lifted the boy up easily and then gripped his wrist, squeezing hard enough to cause him to let go.
Holding the boy above his head with one hand, L.T. looked at Kiara and asked, "Are you ok, I appologize for this fat hippo for bothering you."
L.T. placed the man down, and then looked at him. "Never do anything like that again..."

"Fine," they sneered at the girl, "but you'll regret this rat being on your ship!" They yelled back as they walked below the deck. They walked down the hall and found a library with shelves loaded with text on math and science books. "oye, oye," Bart yelled. "this is our room" yelled Art. They opened up a closet and 2 queen sized beds fell down. " I wonder," said Art. "If we'll fit on the bed," said Bart, "now where is the stuff on alchemy stuff,". "I'd guess in a different room," Art stated, "this is just a library,". "I'll be back," said Art
He barged right into the kitchen right past Rez. "What're you looking at pretty boy?" he said sarcastically. He opened the pantry and stole a bunch of ingredients. He then walked into the ships medical room. He opened up a cabinet and stole more ingredients. No pretty boy punks here. He fell to the ground laughing at what he considered his hilarious comment. He then returned to his new room.
"Where's the paper and pencils around here?" asked Art. "Bet that pretty boy navigator has it," said Bart. They both fell to the ground laughing.
"Oye, fatties, this ship can't take anymore of your belly flopping" Someone yelled to them.
"What was that?!" they both yelled. No one answered. "That's what I thought punks!" they both fell laughing again.
Art walked into Kazes room. He stole a pencil off the top of wgat would be his new desk. He then opened the desk up to take all of his paper. "Got a problem there mongo?" He said. He then fell to the ground laughing. He got up and left back to his quarters.
"So we've got a problem." Art whispered. "The fox bitch," Bart whispered. "These people are our new friends and that fox has them all in danger" said Art. "We have to get her out of this place before she kills them," said Bart. "But if we're caught," said Bart. "The old turtle will kill us," said Bart. "This will be a difficult chore indeed," They both said.

Rez was fiddling around in the kitchen when the fat one, who called himself Art, barged into the kitchen and pilfered an armful of food out of the pantry. Art made and attempt at insulting Rez, but he just replied, "It seems the lard ate a devil's fruit and came to life. Get out and save some food for dinner fatass." Rez returned to what he was doing and sighed.
'Wonderful, now how am I going to keep them from eating everything before I can get it on a plate. Hmm... a giant mousetrap maybe... Naa.' Suddenly he heard something from down the hall and perked his ears up. He heard Art walking back to his room. Quickly he ran to the source of the noise, the medical room, and looked around. Nearly half of the supplies were missing, simple things no ship should be without. 'That bastard! He it's one thing to take some food, but medical supplies too!? Just who does he think he is?!'
With disgust on his face he stormed over to Bart and Art's room and just before he reached the door, "oy..." He started, but fell silent when he faintly heard Art whispering. He creeped up on the doorway, staying out of sight. Straining his ears he tried to listen in on their conversation. He only understood little snippets of it, but he understood the point. 'They want to kill or capture Kiara! They probably want the bounties or something. I can't let them do that!'
He backed slowly back up onto the deck and looked around for Kiara. She was still on the deck after Bart and Art's initial incedent. He tried to be nonchalant about it but failed miserably, running over to Kiara and clutching her shoulders to make sure she pays attention. Quietly he said, "Kiara you're in danger. I think those two fat guys are going to try to kill you. I overheard them down below. I'm pretty sure of it." He took a glance over his shoulder to the stairs going below. "They probably want your bounty, but I don't care about the money. I would much rather have you around. I can't really tell LT since we all only just met, he might just dismiss it as a petty crew disagreement blown out of proportion or something. I don't know I just felt noone would believe me. You believe me, right? You've already seen how they acted around you."

"We'll have to strike at dark!"said Art. "But for now we work" said Bart. "I think I'll be making a poison, best way to take her out," said Art. "I'll go keep watch on deck, don't want her to kill anybody," said Bart. He walked towards the door and swore he heard someone running away but couldn't be certain. "I think," said Bart. "we're being watched," said art. Bart walked down the hall until he reached the ladder. He began to climb up.
Cr-cr-crack. The ladder could barely hold him. He climbed up quicker and almost go caught in the hatch but he got out. He tried stood on the deck eying the fox lady. He saw Rez approach her, he was able to listen in. He was about to go below deck when he remembered the ladder. He had his plan, he would let Rez go down the ladder, it would break and he would fall to the floor. Then Art could poison him, it would look like he died from impact. His only problems were letting his brother know the plan and making sure the ladder did break and having Rez on it when it did. The battle left many holes in the deck. One such whole went through the deck into there room. He passed a note to his brother.
Art grabbed the note and headed for the ship writes room. She wasn't there fortunately for him. He stole her ax. He walked down the hall to his room and grabbed his poison and a syringe. "Oye!" he yelled to his brother. "Oye!" Bart yelled back. He walked into the hatch and 'accidentally' got stuck. He started yelling. That was Arts signal, he started hacking at the ladder making inconspicuous cuts in it. The ladder looked like it was in decent condition but it wasn't. Two of there problems were solved now all that was left was for Rez to use the ladder.
"Dam it this ship looks fine but its pulling to one side, something must be down there." Shouting over the deck didn't help nor was it going to but it did make El feel better. 'Looks like its going to be one of those days, first the two large gits who are now making noise below decks and it better not be more holes or they will be sealing them with the heads on the outside, and then it goes and pulls to the left for no reason.' She thought about it for a monent and ignored it and shouted down to Rez and Kiara "Oi you two love cats. Kiara take the wheel and Rez give me a hand fixing this boat up."
Holding the wheel until Kiara got to it El nodded at her and then vaulted the rails and headed over to the side. "Rez grab that length of rope and tie it to the mast and then lower me over the side so I can have a look and don't drop me in or you will have to get me" Her voice taking on a authortive tone El really didn't like to order people around but when something needed doing they helped or got out the way.
After pulling the rope a few times to check it she made sure Rez had a good grip before climbing up onto the side rail an being lowered over the side. Tapping around the side with her hammer checking the boards El knew it was a couple of boards were out of place but it shouldnt need to many changing but she would have to be docked to change them and straigten it out but wouldn't take too long. Climbing back up El thanked Rez and looked up to Kiara on the wheel. Shouting up to her, she asked "Wheres LT?"
(Edit: I didnt realise that the other post had changed so Im just going to change why I go over the edge but the rest is the same)

"Hay" said Kaze catching the attentions of Bart and Art as Art was hacking the ladder and Bart was yelling around. "What the hell are you doing?" he asked. "ah? weren't you unconscious?" shouted Art, quickly hiding his poison syringe behind his back.
"How can anyone rest with all of your noise? who are you anyway?" asked Kaze clearly annoyed with the tow overwight loud men.
"We're Bart abd Art, and were getting rid of the fox lady fo you guys" whispered Bart as he was getting down from the hatch, then looked up to see if Rez was coming to the trap they made. "L.T. introduced her as a crew member" said Kaze, getting more annoyed at the two and they're suspicious actions. "Yeah, but she's a dangerous woman, with a big price on her head!" they both said together. 'So it's about money then' thought Kaze.
"only one thing to do then" said Kaze, as he drew his fan from his back and opened it as much as he could in the small space they were in.
"oh? what's that? are you gonna help us get the fox?" said they brothers together, there eyes widening.
"Kaze no Hishou"
A great swing of Kaze's fan was followed by a gust of wind that threw the two fat man high in the air through the hatch, along with the ladder, the frame of the hatch and planks that the wind picked from the floor.
Rez flipped around to look at the mess behind him. "Oy Oy! What's going on here?! Don't go running in the halls if you're going to blow through the doors! It's not good to damage your own ship! Especially since you just got here! Keep yourselves under control or I'll have to do it for you!" His eyes narrowed and his hands balled into fists.
Whispering behind him he said, "Stay sharp Kiara, they're up to something." He gritted his teeth, but kept his thoughts and anger to himself, 'What are they really up to? I can't let them get near Kiara, although I'm sure she has a few tricks of her own up her sleeve. If they wanted to be discreet about killing Kiara, why come blazing out onto the deck like that? What are they doing?'
L.T. rubbed his head and sat up. He was sleeping... having a nice dream... about treasure... lots of treasure... and girls... beautiful girls... Standing up and looking down from the top of the place he was sleeping, by the mast in which the crows nest was postioned.
He watched as the deck was ripped up slightly by the entrince, and the two large people getting pushed out. He felt a strong breeze go past him as the opening was made, and he knew it was wind.
Jumping down, L.T. looked at the ship, rubbed his head, and then looked at the group. "This ship, the "Black Sun", really doesn't need to take this much damage... FROM ITS OWN CREW!" He shouted, rubbing his head still.
"Now tell me... what the hell is going on before I decide to tie all of you from your ankles and tie you just above water level." He said, sighing.
Kiara nodded as Rez warned her again, a hardened expression on her face. She had heard a bit of info herself with her fox ears, about Rez and the ladder. “Watch it Rez, they know you know they are planning to kill me. Don’t use the ladder going down below, they plan for you to fall and kill you for they have weakened the ladder,” Looking around, she saw that Though normally confident, she was a little worried since it would be easy to do now that they were on the ship and all. Until they reached the next island which shouldn’t be very far I hope, she wouldn’t eat and wouldn’t sleep (unless someone was watching her which she wouldn’t ask someone to do. She knew they could easily poison her food, drink, or even kill her in her sleep.
She glanced down at L.T. from the wheel, just as confused as him about what was going on. Turning back to the front, she watched the sea, listening with close ears the conversation that was going on. Maybe she would hear info about how they plan to murder her. Gritting her teeth, she tried to keep her cool though was failing miserably. Thinking about ways they could murder her made her feel sick, and she started feeling a bit woozy. Looking backwords, she shouted to El.
“El! Can you re-take the wheel? I don’t feel so well and want to rest!”
Though part of that was true, she was also testing to see what they would do while she was vulnerable. As El approached, Kiara walked past the crew, and jumped onto the roof, lying back and putting her arms behind her head knees propped up yawning as she pretended to sleep.
Taking the wheel back from Kiara, El watched her walk across the deck and just shock her head when she jumped onto the roof and layed down to take a nap, 'oh well to each their own' El thought. Turning round to look back to the sea they had drifted further along but it wasnt a problem.
Hearing LT shout El took a long hard look at the wreckage on the deck and quickly noticed that most of the planks of wood lying on the deck were from the steps out from below decks. Looking at them El catched a climse of something shiney in the planks and saw it was her axe, now she wasnt happy. Destorying steps is one thing but stealing her axe is another.
Shouting back to LT "I don't know one miute all was fine then there was a shout and then the hippos came flying out of the hatch." pointing at the hippos now "They also stole my axe to do that. You better ask fan boy what he is upto aswell as he deals with wind."
Sulking now she had her say El grabed back ahold of the wheel and looked over at Kiara lying on the roof and wondered how she was involed in all of this.
Kaze jumped out from the hatch to the deck, and he found himself in front of L.T. after he jumped down from the crows nest.
"Now tell me... what the hell is going on before I decide to tie all of you from your ankles and tie you just above water level." said L.t , sighing.
"Those two tried to kill Rez and Kiara" said Kaze quietly, closing his fan and pointing it's blade at the two who were still lying on the deck.
Then Kiara left the wheel and walked past them, everyone's eye's followed her along her way as shed went up to the roof, where she lied down.
"Capitan" said Kaze in order to get L.T.'s attentions, "what do you wanna do with these two?"
"I warned them, but hell, they didn't listen... alright... toss them over board before any more damage happens to the ship." L.T. said, looking at Kaze.
Many people wouldn't have built enough trust to listen to this man, but L.T. fought the man, and he trusted the man, and his word, unless L.T. challenged them, would always be listened to.
"And make sure to give them a life saver each, I don't like them, but sometimes, you need to be nice... karma and that stuff." L.T. said, tossing the two the circle floating devices.
L.T. then grabbed the two by their necks and threw them overboard. "Alright crew, lets get going, and lets move quickly." He said, acting like a captain.
Rez was a little stunned at their quick dismissal by LT like they were northing more than trash. 'He's really amazing, I just hope I am good enough for him.' "Yea I had overheard them down below that they wanted to take Kiara out before she killed us. Now we both know they were overreacting... and they probably wanted the bounty too. We'll it's best not to have any conflict among crewmates as I'm sure you know LT. El, you are a shipwright right? I don't mean to be commanding, but you should probably fix the damage those two did soon. It'll be a pain going below without stairs. I'll help you if you want, but I have to do something first."
Rez went over to the blown out door and jumped down the missing stairs in one leap. He rummaged around the two's rooms looking for all the things they pilfered from the supplies. He found the food tucked in the corner and the medical supplies in a chest. Returning their plunder back to where they belong, he let out a sigh of relief that the two oafs were out of the crew. He really didn't like them very much.
"At least they had the courtesy to give us a floaty thingy mobobber," said art.
"Shutup," said bart. The two finally weren't getting along. They were sitting in the open see with there crew sailing away. There old crew anyway.
The water was blue and wavy. The ocean spray hitting there faces. The cool breeze was refreshing to the small crew of soldiers on a boat heading towards the brothers. They werer riding a small fishing boat with rouph wood in need of sanding, and creeking when each wave passed. This ship had survived many battles. The leader was a man named Omix. A strong young man. He was a revolutionary trying to get the World Government off his island. They were near the brothers now and in talking distance.
"I do say my good fellows, are you in need of assistance?" Omix yelled out in his deep voice. His voice was weird when mixed with his elegant black tuxedo, bow ty, and great manners.
"Duhh!" the two yelled rudely.
"That was not proper manners, my good fellows. When presented with a question like this it is best to speak as politely as you can. Try a quiet voice ne-," said Omix
"Captain!" said one of the crew.
"Oh, yes my apologies," said Omix. He threw the two a couple of ropes each and they climbed on. "Now, we are heading towards my homeland now. We were out on patroll. We'll be entering into the mountains where my fellow revolutionarys are camped. There we will drop you off and you can do as you please,"
"Thank you," said the two at the same time.
"Hohoho, so you know manners after all! A great quality in a person. I remembern when I was a younger lad. My father raised me with the greatest of manners. If I used bad manners, I was wipped. It set me streight. It just grinds my gears to see people us-," said Omix
"Captain!" said one of the crew.
"So we're landind at the nearest island, good," said Art
"Yes, yes, yes, we will be docking shortly. Make yourself at home!" said Omix.
The two of them went below the deck and found a private room. "The crew will likely be there. We'll join up with the Navy on the island and take the whole crew down," said Art.
"Would that be nice?" said Bart. Apparently the dumber of the two.
"Yes my brother, they are enemys of the world. They're protecting an evil woman. They must all be taken down!"
Kiara imediatly sat up as she heard L.T say he was going to throw them overboard. Distrusting her ears, she just watched, mouth gaping open until they were thrown overboard. Shaking her head, she stared in disbelief at the spot where they were thrown off. Once she convinced herself they were gone, she jumped down onto deck walking up to L.T. with a guilty look on her face. "I am sorry that I have cause some trouble on this ship. That hole was kind of my fault too I gues.." She said looking behind her at the hole the belly boys and Kaze made. "You didn't have to throw them over board. I would have managed to stay away from them until the next island. By then if they still didn't trust me I could have left.." She finished, looking down at her feet and turning away, hands behind her back as she walked rather quickly away before he could reply.
'I guess I better thank and apologize to Rez as well,' She thought as she made her way to the kitchen, slower than when she ran from L.T. After all, she wasn't really escaping from anything at the moment. Opening the door a crack, she saw him putting away the food the lards had stolen away, examining it for anything suspicious and throwing some in the trash. "So too what do I owe this visit," He said not even looking up, making her eyes widen as she opened the door some more and slipped in. Leaning agaist the door, about to leave after this apology was over. "I just came to say thanks for the heads up earlier, and that I am sorry to have caused you trouble. If it wasn't for me they wouldn't have been after your life as well," She turned to leave opening the door to step out when she stopped abruptly..
Rez was looking over an armful of fruit the two had stolen. He held up an apple to the light, turning it this way and that to see if they did anything to it. 'It doesn't look like they did anything to it. Nice and ripe, no cuts or bruises.' Just then he turned it over to find a huge bite taken out of the back. He frowned and disposed of the ruined apple. 'What a shame. It looked really good too. I can just imagine peeling it, dicing it and making it into a nice treat. Maybe a pie, or add some spices and have it as a treat dipped in honey? A shame...'
Just then Kiara shyly came in. She looked guilty and just wanted to get out of there. But she made her peace, thanking Rez for the warning. She was about to rush out, but she stopped when she felt a hand come to rest on her shoulder. A little stunned, unmoving, Kiara heard in reply, "It's ok Kiara, I apprieciate it. You have given us absulutely no reason not to trust you. You shouldn't feel guilty at all. I have no regret in risking myself for you. I... we are all pirates and it should be expected that we will all be in life-threatening situations at one point or another. As long as we all take that risk, make that effort for each other, we will always pull through! And besides, how could I not help someone as sweet as you?" Kiara blushed at that last comment, although facing away from Rez.
L.T. watched as Kiara walked away, and then smiled and said to no one, "I gave them a warning that I would toss them overboard, next time they will have to listen to warnings." L.T. sighed and looked into the sky, seeing the sun starting to set. "Not to much longer, that island wasn't that far away."
A few days later, the next island came into sight, and L.T. smiled as he sat up from laying down. "Alright crew! If you can hear me, then listen to this! The island has a marine base, so we need to be careful with what we do, so should be take down our flag, or shall we tease the marines here?"
Kiara looked down at L.T. as he anounced the next island having a marine base and such. Sitting up, she jumped down from where she was sunbathing on the roof to land in front of him with grace and brushed herself off. Glancing back up at him, she began to speak. "Flag up or down, I could care less, but whatever you chose I will stay and watch the ship," She exclaimed, disappearing into the cabins to grab a couple of things. She walked slowly, hand to her chin as she thought about what would happen if the ship were attacked. What would she do? Never the less she would defend it with her life, but what if they got her? Shuddering, she had a bad feeling, and she hoped that it was wrong. Although it normally wasn't, for her instincts were good, but that troubled her.
Arriving at her cabin, she slowly opened the door striding to her bed and grabbing her cloak, putting it on and hding beneath her hood once more. She also bent down and looked under her bed to find her spy stuff, and glanced through it. Sighing, she picked up a metal rod she used in defence in case she was caught. Standing back up, she blew the dust off of it, and turned to walk back to deck. Arriving, she walked past the crew and hid herself in the shadows in a corner.
Rez came up from the kitchen carrying a plate with an array of sliced fruits and meats, snacks to tide the crew over until dinner. Setting it down on a table on deck, he wiped his hands off and rolled his sleeves down. With a flourish he wiped his knife off, moist from the fresh cutting of edibles, and flipped it into it's sheath. LT proclaimed that they were upon the next island and their situation. Rez nodded and waited for a gap in conversation to speak, "I think we should stay hidden for now. If we were to reveal ourselves, not only would we alert the marines and be chased down, as expected, but we would be hard pressed to get off on land. If we were to leave the ship and they found it devoid of pirates, or even just one, they wouldn't hesitate to sieze it. For the safety of Kiara and the ship I think we should just take it easy for now. We can always cause problems after we finish whatever business we might have here. Getting extra supplies for example. The marines can wait till we are ready."
Rez wiped his forehead free of sweat and continued, "So, LT, which island is this? Anything important besides marines we should know about? Oh, and anything I should get done? Of course I'll top up our food and water stores, but it doesn't hurt to check." He reached behind him and grabbed a toothpick and skewered some pineapple and ham, a classic combination, and munched down on his snack, preparing for the day ahead.
"I say we should keep quiet from the begining and make as much noise as we want when we leave. Theres some repairs I need to make to this ship and some on them we need to be docked for espically the problem with it pulling to one side. We had better get that fixed before we atempt to enter the line or we will just end up as another statistic. Plus if you want I can do something to the marnie ships that they wont have much effect untill about a mile or so out from land."
Looking at the food El took a few bits on a stick and walked over to the rail and had a look down the side of the ship. Once there was a problem somewhere it bugged her that she couldn't do anything while out at sea that would fix it.
Turning round El said accross the deck "Well Rez as your offering to get something done you can go and get me a few things so I don't have to stop work and we can get out of here much quicker."
