The Pearl was attacked, we came under siege of The Phantom Conquerer. It was a surprise attack and they hit us pretty hard. However we held our own. During the slicing of flesh and the clashing of swords, Murron and i raced over to the other ship...Why? I have no idea, i can't even remember what we planned to do once we got there but we went anyway. I suppose it was simply that rush of adrenaline, the dangerous kind that runs through your veins at those moments when your mind can not think clearly. We reacted on a rash of emotions.
In any case, once we were over there, the Pearl had done a significant amount of damage to the Conquerer with our cannons and they wanted to pull out.
In all of the years that i have been living i don't believe my heart has ever stopped completely at one moment. But it came to a screeching halt when i came face to face with the first mate.
Shane Kelly was the first mate on The Phantom Conquerer. Pieces have started to fall into place. Every day i am remembering more of those four years that i thought i had lost. I can't remember specific details but i do know that he was supposed to be dead. And i also remember that we were in love. A love that can't even begin to compare to that which i feel for William Turner at this point and time. Which brings me to the next event.
While Murron and I scrambled back to our ship, James, Captain of The Phantom, shot Charlotte who was in the Crows Nest. Why she was up there, i will never know. That is such and easy target for enemies it isn't even funny. As well, when you are up there, you have no place to go but down, you can very easily get trapped. Anyway, James shoots Charlotte and now all of the sudden William can not be sure if he still wants to give his heart to me. Well i can tell you how i feel about that. I think that is perfectly fine with me. Glad it's finally happened, only thing is, i am still here under Calico's orders therefor i must keep up this insane charade. It's only for a little while longer i suppose. But my thoughts keep drifting back to Shane. I know he saw me, and i know he remembered me because he stopped just as swiftly as i did. Which in turn caused their ship more damage. I need to see him again. I need to know what happened, i need to find out who i am...
I don't know why I'm frightened
I know my way around here
The cardboard trees, the painted seas, the sound here...
Yes, a world to rediscover
But I 'm not in any hurry
And I need a moment
The whispered conversations in overcrowded halls
The atmosphere as thrilling here as always
Feel the early morning madness
Feel the magic in the making
Why, everything's as if we never said goodbye
I've spent so many mornings just trying to resist you
I'm trembling now, you can't know how I've missed you
Missed the fairy tale adventure
In this ever spinning playground
We were young together
And this time will be bigger
And brighter than we knew it
So watch me fly, we all know I can do it...
Could I stop my hand from shaking?
Has there ever been a moment
With so much to live for?
