The Great Escape
It was always warm in the Enchanted Island. But for Captain Jack Sparrow, things were just hot; being roasted for King Kahuka’s banquet had its price, after all… But Jack was the main course, and in some strange way that made him proud.
Face down, Jack turned his head and took a look. It wouldn’t take long.
Captain Brickbeard approached, saying, “Smiling? Don’t you know you’re to be eaten? Out of your depth yet again, huh, Jack?”
With Brickbeard, things always came back to that. They had been raised into piracy by the same captain — Redbeard. They were best friends, but then there was Anne.
Brickbeard had been in love with Anne. But Jack had seen it in her eyes that things would be different than Brickbeard had hoped for…
Brickbeard was sick one night and wouldn’t leave Redbeard’s Black Seas Barracuda. Jack was drunk; Anne seized the opportunity. Waking up by her side had been as much a surprise for Jack as it had been for Brickbeard.
“Did you know your crew’s fighting Governor Broadside’s imperials in that old mill up the mountain?”, said Brickbeard.
Jack took another look. Only a few seconds left.
“Smiling again? You nuts?”, said Brickbeard.
There was a loud noise, screaming and running. Rocks and bricks coming down fast, and a mill wheel rolling down the mountainside. Will Turner was on top of it, moving his legs fast for his life.
It rolled right through the fire, taking Jack with it all the way down to the beach.
“Practice makes perfect, huh, Jack?”
Head spinning but safe, there wasn’t much to complain.
“So it seems, Will… On to the Black Pearl!”
“Relax! They’re all the way up the mountain!”
“Forget them! I need to check if a certain wench would still like to share some rum…”
(for the moment...)
