The battle has begun!
Amelie feels a hand gently pushing her shoulder. She grabs the wrist of the hand. Unlike “Dizzying Blade” she isn’t inclined to stab anyone who awakes her. “Get up Amelie,” “One Eye” is whispering in her ear.
Amelie, along with the others gasp as Janet jumps to her feet and lets her blanket fall to the deck.
Amelie groans and nods her head. Taking in a deep breath she says in Arsema’s direction, “Oh to be a mermaid at this moment.”
She and the Captain stop talking for a moment. Baffled at the sight of the Cannibal woman Melinda sauntering up to Captain Peg leg.
Master Jo Anne watches in utter surprise as Melinda’s expression blossoms into hate and rage as she replies, “To feast on Barthadrow and his crew.”
Once on deck she hears him say in his deep, solemn voice, “The Cannibals just wanted meat it seems.”
First Mate ‘One Eye’ Olanis asks Kitkun, known as Raven for her hair and keen eyesight to watch from the Crow’s Nest, to see if she can see either the Surprise or the Cannibal’s ship.
Aarini asks if the ‘Ship Builder’ lost his finger fighting off the Cannibals when Eau-de-vie covered Cachaça years ago.
