The Sea Calls To Us All

Post  Maretothebear on 5/27/2017, 4:46 pm

Time: POTC time period, we begin at night.

Place: The Caribbean --> there are many islands but for this story a few to name to start:
The Isle of Theives (Curacio) - Bars, babes for hire, ship restocking, a few Inns, livestock no natives.

Lagoona Muerta --> Cannibals, natives, bars, livestock.

Port Imperial --> The Royal Naval port where the civilized people live, bars, babes near the beach, working people, highly regulated port.

The trench --> deepest waters, strange things occur here, there are islands. Creatures of legend may be more likely to lurk.

All cursing allowed, adult subjects allowed, if a criminal would do it, so can you. The only rule is no actual reference to a pirates of the carribbean character.

The sun was beginning to set and I'm it's place a full moon would rise and brighten up the night in it's pale moon light. Captain Cain stood on the deck of The Siren's Call, the Captain was still new but after two years had made a name for himself, quickly putting fear in the hearts of seamen. Off in the distance he watched the shoreline of a small island where an even smaller town had settled. Grinning to himself and clicking the spy glass shut and stuffing it away just as he turned to face his crew who were eagerly awaiting the Captain's orders. "Men.. Man the cannons he sea dogs, the siren will sing tonight." On response he was greeted with excitable shouting and the men quickly hurried to do as he asked, loading the cannons as the Captain pulled them in closer to line up for the first volley.

Aria's stomach rumbled she hadn't eaten in a few days choosing instead to stay on land and mingle among the stupidly gullible men who tried to favor her with 6 piece or more, over double a typical whores bidding to lie with them. If only they knew her best work was done on the water they wouldn't be so willing. Occasionally she enjoyed to lead them to the beach, relieve them of their britches and just as they let their guard down push them into the sea where some of her kin lurked about to enjoy them. All of them typically had wives and families. Aria was accustomed to the honor system of her own kind who never strayed from their mates. Such adultery was scum to her and the fate of the sea and her citizens a worthy punishment. Aria could no longer go hungry and jumped clear off a cliff into the sea, her dress turning to a long tail of various shades of grey. She swam far out and began to catch fish when above her a ship which did not belong glazed the surface. Pirates. She came up for air and her curiosity had her listening. She heard the captain bark an order. They would be heading for the town. This was nothing entirely new but then the young man finished with "the siren will sing tonight" and she was too amused not to enjoy herself. She dove up from the sea as a sailfish might and landed on the upper deck near the wheel, her legs appearing under her. "Ya know captain, if I may say, sirens rarely have to sing to lure men. I mean I'm no expert" she laughed slyly, her face menacingly beautiful as she leaned on the rail.

The men were preparing to fire the first volley, Cain about to lower his arm to give the command but an alluring female voice drew his attention, halting the order without so much as a judge. "Hold!" He barked and turned and he was staring at the face of one of the most beautiful women he had ever seen, probably the most beautiful. He didn't allow himself to be to caught up into her appearance he shook his black hair head back into reality and stated at her hard with piercing green eyes. The young Captain had no facial hair as of yet, but his crew still seemed to fear and respect him all the same. "How did he get on my ship, wench?" Cain demanded but one of his other crew spoke up and responded. "I saw it myself Captain! She sprang from the ocean like a fish and sprouted legs! She's a sea witch I tell ya!" The man was clearly afraid but in his eyes showed the desire he held for her, intact she had the eye of most of his crew. Though the Captain didn't have time to prioritize one over the other. He'd just have to lay siege to the town with most of his crew and the others would assist him in capturing this creature. "You three with me." He said, drawing a finely sharpened cutlass and pointing them out. "The rest if you continue with our attack, fire the first volley to weaken them then send out the longboats!" The men for the most part snapped back to, the ones attacking the town clearly would have preferred to have a chance to catch the woman. "Listen closely, sea witch and hear the siren.." Grinning at her as the first set fires, the cannons themselves had holes across the top and as they were set off released a chorus of notes, sounding indeed like a song played as the cannons were shot in certain order. "Now get her!"

Aria's smile turned into a smirk as she flipped backward to stand on top of the rail and walk along its edge. "Ugh I've always hated the term sea wench, why is calling me the most beautiful creature to cross the earth so difficult?" she mused, "ahh perhaps it's just too long to say." She expertly jumped over each swipe of a sword of the crew members until she swooned at one "kiss mee.." in a sing-song voice and flipped him overboard. This Captain was interesting. Aria laughed like a 5yr old as she deftly moved about the upper deck of the ship. None of these men had the heart to injure her severely so they hesitated in their motions. " Now now Captain, all I wanted was some good old fashioned conversation. To sick the goon squad on me tsk tsk." she taunted.

Cain rolled his eyes when he saw one if his men get thrown overboard so easily, the man would probably die in the waters but he had no time to worry about that. The rest of the crew were leaving in the longboats now to go plunder the town and the last thing he needed was some sea witch making trouble on his ship. The remaining two men were hesitating, she could read them like am open book and it would be worthless. Walking over he grabbed them both by the backnof their shirts and vests and pulled them away from the woman. "If he aren't going to hit her then get out of my way, go man the cannons and keep the song playing, you worthless dogs." Shoving them out of the way as he stood in front of the girl, he clearly wasn't amused by her antics. "No reason ye can't talk and fight. And just so we are clear I've seen prettier women than you in my bed." Cain moved faster than the other two, he clearly wasn't the strongest but his skill came from speed and agility. His will stronger than the others and able to resist this passive charm of hers as he brought the blade swinging down over her. "What have ya got to say for yeself, most beautiful of the whatever young are."

Aria laughed at the men and jumped from the railing to the deck. She watched as they were dismissed and the captain came for her himself. This man's eyes were the shade of jades and they bore into her violet ones fiercely it seemed. This was not a man who fell to the weakness of surface charms. She was suddenly quite curious as to what was warding him against his natural responses. As he spoke he spoke down to her and put her beneath him even though his age could not merit such experience. It was annoying. She feigned a gasp at his nasty little comment "Well let me go cry now" she rolled her eyes and stepped back on his swing, causing her to trip and fall to the floor. She was cornered and at last met his eyes fearlessly with all the grace she could muster at the wrong end of a sword.

"Tears won't save you from my sword girly." Was his response as she got back up, the sharp end of his cutlass just a hair from the slender neck of the creature. The green eyes met her fearless violet ones, most women would faint caught into such a position after the ear splitting shrill of course but not her. It made him respect her a little more. "However I won't kill you. You might just catch a fine price.. afterall who can say they've ever owned a mermaid. Not to many as i suspect mermaids are usually to smart to just jump onto the deck of a ship.." Grinning slightly as he stated for a bit longer at her, his other men probably would have thrown her down and forced themselves in her but Cain lived by a different code than that. "Deckard get over here and assist me putting this girl down in the brig, she sails with us for now." The man was quick to come over and escort them, Cain needed to keep his blade fixed on her, she was a slippery one and of he didn't take her down surely she would escape due to the stupidity of lesser men.

"Owned??" She grew angry and fought against this deck hand until she'd gotten herself facing him and snapped his neck under her powerful hands. "I don't care who you are, I am Aria, a siren of the sea and a price is not something you'll be fetching for me." she gritted out from between her teeth. She knew a dead mermaid was bad luck to any vessel. The sea would retaliate. She put her hand on the Captain's and attempted to lower his sword. The anger within her surged and she got face to face with him. "Needed a snack for later." She laughed darkly. Aria wanted to get to know this young man who wanted to keep her but possessed no desire for her. She would allow him to stow her, the men would not stand a chance against her should they feel the need to bed her and that would be enough. "and what exactly stops me from screaming until your ears bleed from the pitch?"

Again Cain rolled his eyes as she broke the crew members neck, so easily overtaken, he had probably been to busy thinking about her nakedness. "So hard to rely on anyone these days.." Grunted when she grabbed his hand to lower the blade and they were face to face, gritting his teeth as he looked into the violets eyes of the mermaid. She was clearly a threat and having her aboard especially when she talked of having a snack. That did not sit well with him but clearly if they tried to sell her she would make it a living hell for the entire ship. Grabbing her by the shoulder he pulled her in real close. "Very well I will think of something else to do with you. Until then.. Welcome aboard the Siren's Call." Shoving her into the cell and slamming the barred gate shut. We leave when my men return from the town and then we can decide what is to be done with you. Until that time you better thinking what else you can eat for i will not willingly give you my crew, any dim witted enough to try and lay with you are free for the taking, we all make our own destiny." The Captain said as he slid the blade back into its gold embroidered scabbard.

Aria crossed her arms and watched the captain leave. She was going to grow bored sitting there. She laid across the bench in the cell and began singing a melody. No one knew this but for a siren to sing a song to lure a man into the sea she needed to weave a tale. It took time. However, to simply spell a man into lust, one only had to sing a little song. "My heart is pierced by cupid..I distain all glittering gold..there is nothing can console me, but my jolly sailor bold.." She hummed and sang off and on, her eyelids lowering tiredly. Soon they would be underway toward goodness knows where with who knows who.

Several hours had passed but the rest of the crew had returned with coin and values of all sorts. Returned with rum and grain and spices looted from the town, they were clearly pleased with the bounty they stole and Cain nodded with approval, at least they were effective at plundering and looting, almost making up for the fact they couldn't handle a single girl by themselves. When they were back in the Siren's Call they were eagerly asking if the mermaid had been caught and even happier to know she had been. "No one into try and bed her." Cain started to the grumbling and complaints of his men but were quickly silenced when he grabbed the hilt of his blade, the young Captain did not take insubordination kindly. "If you break my ruling I will not kill you, but you will die, she's killed two already and dangerous so now we have to decide what is to be done with the mer-" He stopped abruptly as he spotred several ships in the distance, flying the colors of the royal navy. "Brita! Let loose the sail and drow the cannons, get my ship moving now!" Barking loudly and all the men jumped into action, releasing the sail as the Captain reached the wheel, turning it quickly onna heading to get them out of the area, the wind catching and starting them off. "Move ye arse ya sorry excuses for men! Those be Man O' Wars, go go now!"

Aria awoke to the ship rocking as it set sail. There was yelling on deck. Apparently a navy vessel or two was inbound. She would not be stuck in this brig when the fighting began. She was deciding what to do when a single wave bounced the keys off the hook it sat on. She smiled happily and reached out to them. With her cell now unlocked she dusted herself off and set off for deck. With everyone setting about preparing for battle no one would even notice her she hoped. She took a cloak off the wall and hooded herself up so as to disguise herself strolling on deck. She took the walk up to the wheel and stood next to the captain who was busy. "So I never did catch your name there sailor." she stated casually feigning interest and concern with the imminent danger. She thought the newly promoted first mate was about to shit himself. She hoped not. He'd smell.

"You'll catch my boot up ye're arse if.." He stopped when he looked over and saw it was the face Aria hiding under the cloak, she had least had the decency to hide herself to not distract the crew as they worked quickly to outrun the naval ships behind them. "Ye want a name now? While I'm trying to save this ship and crew?" It was almost unbelievable this creature. "The nam- You there sailor secure that line ye bilge rat!" Getting distracted by the carelessness of a crew mate, from up here he saw everything and corrected everything he could, he had good eyes and missed nothing. "My name is Cain, Captain Cain you will address me, and I'm certain you said your name was Aria." Grunting as he twisted the wheel about to adjust their course slightly turning them toward an unsettling fog resting above the waters, he could lose them there if they could make it. "Why haven't you just left yet, no one can stop ye as I pit my life above ye're value."

Aria looked him dead in the face. "Because you need me."She spoke as clearly as she could. Her otherworldly wisdom showing through she looked up at the clouds and whispered to the skies asking for Poseidon to intervene to cloak the ship to do something and then a fog came down around them that thickly veiled the ship off from the british fleet until they passed. She then looked to Captain Cain. "My value is increased by your life" She rolled her eyes and uncloaked herself. She was feeling weakened by her choice to ask for mercy but she couldn't walk away from a vessel as it was under fire. She needed to be redeemed.

Cain watched in awe, a rare sight for him to be off guard indeed, as the fog clouds came over the ship and enveloped them. The men put out the lamps to keep them from being spotted by the British. They waited until the ships were gone, sailing into the black horizon and out if their view, that was when the fog lifted and the men were speechless for the luck. "Helsman take the wheel." Cain was greeted with an 'Aye Captain' and the mate took over navigation, while Cain took Aria by her arm, softer this time as led her down into the Captain's quarters. "Why would you choose to save us after we just plundered a town and took ya prisoner, ye owe us nothing." He was curious but either way that act had just made her priceless, to valuable to give or sell holding such powers.

Aria was caught off guard as she was firmly yet not harshly led back down into the bowels of the ship. At first she thought it would be the brig again and fought back to very little avail and then they turned a corner and ended their walk in the captains quarters. It was decorated quite moderately for a pirate and had no real evidence of the debauchery that occurred there. She pondered her answer to his question for a moment before responding. "I care nothing for a town of dirt dwellers and their gold however, my soul is something I care dearly for. Do you feel like burning in hell because I'm not keen on it. Saving your judgmental ass gives me points with the big guy as I see it, savvy? I'm all about me own destiny, trust me. Then again" She cocked her head to the side "you may be too pretty to die so quickly." she snickered and lightly swiped down his face before crossing her arms. "I'll be going now, tata Cap-eee-tan." she started toward the door.

"Whatever your feelings, you have my thanks, Aria for my ship and crew, those you've yet to kill anyway." Raising an eyebrow as he said that last part. Taking off his weapons belt and tossing it into the chair, it had been quite the long day, plundering, chasing mermaids, and outrunning the British. Now they were sailing for the Isle of Thieves. He almost froze in place when turning around to see her and feel her hand slide down his face. The touch felt almost sincere and pleasant it made him just really take time to look at her and study the perfected features of her face. Cain could not lie to himself, he wanted her but making such a move could cost him but it felt almost worth the risk. She was turning to leave, almost to the door. Suddenly his strong hand was around her arm again, probably the most insane thing he had ever done, deciding to challenge the mermaid despite what he had seen her do. "Leaving so soon? Where would you go?"

Aria's breath caught, sensing the tone of his voice. He feared her and for some reason that bothered her. Against her better judgement she turned back to face him. "Cain, before I answer your other question I will answer the one in your mind. I would never kill you. You possess innocence. You are not afflicted with the lust of man. Their weakness is what gives me the strength to kill them. You are stronger than me until the day you bed a woman against her will." She finished and realized his grasp remained firm. He wasn't done with her yet. "I would go to the ocean, find sanctuary." she answered him matter of factly as she watched his eyes. She was drawn to him there was no doubt about that. If he advanced his intentions she wasn't sure it would be her nature that would want her to continue but rather something much deeper.

"Go to the ocean? The Captain as not said such a thing to let ye leave quite yet and I find meself growing ever more curious about ya.." He said and pulled her toward him, her body pressed against his and tightly, and as she said herself he was stronger than her until he took a woman forcefully though knowing this he was prepared to understand that she still wouldn't give herself up easy, he could see it in those violet eyes, her fierceness it drew him in the most, not many women had such a trait and especially not as strong as hers was. The Captain wanted her just as fiercly now though because of it he found everything about her attractive even if she had a sharp tongue but that too he enjoyed. Reaching up with one hand and wrapping his fingers firmly into the locks while the other arm was around her waist to keep them together.

Aria tilted her head back as he gained a fistful of her hair and was pressed against him. She struggled to keep her ground, attempting to maintain a sliver of control. She brought her hand up and squeezed his throat, hoping to free herself. She breathed close to his face, "Admit to me here and now that I am the most beautiful woman you have brought to bed." she grinned even as she fought. He would not gain her submission without taking back such a callous remark. His boyishness had fled his face, replacing it was that of a man who no longer doubted himself. Aria was in the most trouble she'd ever gotten herself into.

The Captain almost enjoyed how her hand gripped around his neck, turning them around so they would face away from the door and he stood between her and it making sure the only escape was blocked off. Before he would answer her, the hand aroind her back moved to take the wrist of her hand holding him by the throat, staring into the violet eyes. "You already knew I lied... But I will admit you are the most beautiful woman I brought to bed." He knew that such an admission would not make her give up sooner but it needed to be said this he knew. Struggling with the mermaid to keep her fingers loose around his neck so as not to choke him. Using the hand holding her hair and he began to walk forward toward the bed on the other side of the room. Obviously his intentions were to force her down on it, if he could get on top of her he could subdue the mermaid sooner and possibly easier since he'd have the advantage. "How strange I wonder... The mermaid is being the one dragged to the pirates instead of the mermaid dragging me to the bottom of the sea." Grinning slightly at her as they struggled together.

Aria unfortunately was a lot more adapted to her tail then her sea legs. Now cut off from her only exit she tried to keep herself from stepping backward but alas it would be futile. She slowly gave way until finally the back of her knees hit the mattress and she had no choice but to fall onto it. She still gripped his throat now even more frantically to cut him off from the air he needed. She swung her legs to the side of his body and tried to slide to let her feet hit the floor so she could break away from him. "Well that does show a serious change of scenery is in order on my part, alas you drowning may have to wait." she gritted out using all her strength for the task at hand.

Feeling the way her fingers tightened aroind his throat he would have to move them now or she would be lost to him. Placing his thumb over the front of her wrist and the rest aroind the back he pushed his thumb down onto the flesh to weaken the grip before attempting to pry it off of him. He had the better positioning now that he was a top of her, Cain would be able to move more freely withoi t having to worry to stand. When she tried to swing her legs to the side he adjusted his knees to pin her legs down with them. "Oh my dear, you will not be drowning me.. I have no intentions of joining you in the cold and black depths of the sea." Using his other hand he pulled a knife from his vest and the Captain began to cut away at her clothing as he stared down at her with those green eyes. "The mermaid will not claim me but I shall claim her.." His tone was that of confidence and he was still grinning down at her, enjoying the challenge she brought to him.
