A Motley Sisterhood of Pirates! BOOK TWO (Part Twelve: Blog Sixty-Four)
By Dan Watt and Taylor Norris, co-authors of the Rita Walker series
“A word, Captain Olanis,” Captain Alejandra says after Olanis hugs each of the others.
Once they are gone Captain Alejandra waves her over to a map on the table. “You don’t have enough stores on the Freya to make it to the Pregnancy Ship, and there’s not enough on the Nagua to compensate. We need to get here,” Captain Alejandra stabs her index finger at an island with an inlet called Deathly Shallows.
“We’d have to anchor the ships in the mouth,” Olanis says as she squeezes her chin thoughtfully.
“Rumours are, lobster people roam there.”
“I thought that was a Peg Leg tale.” Olanis says in disbelief.
“Crazy Bumbee also spoke of it,” Captain Alejandra says with a shallow smirk, “before he tried to touch me without permission.”
Olanis nods her head. “He might have been inappropriate but he did always tell the truth.”
“We lost five girls this battle, Olanis,” Captain Alejandra says, and Olanis can see the Captain struggling not to break. “The Nagua and Freya must stay close enough so we can support each other.”
“Aye, aye, Admiral,” Olanis says with complete support in her tone.
