The sun rose on the Eldorado Fortress and shone through the bars of the interrogation room. The Bluecoat officer leaned onto the wooden table.
“Give me a straight answer,” he growled at the prisoner. “What are you doing here?”
“Just passing through on my way to eternity.” the prisoner rattled his manacles, testing their strength. “Really nothing to do with you. So if you’ll just give me my bottle and let me be on my way...”
“This bottle?” The officer held up the large bottle and the intricately detailed ship rattled within it slightly.
“Careful with that. I don’t go around smashing your things, least you could do is return the favor.”
“You show up on our shores with nothing but a toy ship and a broken compass and you expect us not to be suspicious?” The officer deposited the mentioned items back on the table and leaned back.
“If I’d been concealing a veritable arsenal, would you have been less so?”
At this the officer’s face reddened and he pounded the table. "You’re a Redcoat spy, aren’t you? What are they planning, what are they up to now?”
“I don’t even like Redcoats. Not so much as a little bit.”
The sunlight vanished swiftly as a fog bank rolled in. The suddenness prompted the officer to go to the window. He was met with a ghastly sight. An ethereal ship was sailing into port as if leading the dense fog. Lightning flashed and a woman’s wail could be heard softly but clearly, “Jack.”
Sparrow broke free of the manacles and just as the officer turned around whacked him with the chains. He grabbed his compass and bottle and said as he left, “This was fun but I simply must be going now.”
