"Man its been ages." Cara wailed. "Im bored."
"I miss Leonora." Kehkashan joined in.
Dashton said irritably. "Shut it."

They all turned as the sleeping figured groaned and then said croakily. "Water..."

"Oh he's up!" Cara said happily and raced ahead to get him glass of water.
"There you go, Bambi." Cara said and poured him a glass of water. Watching with amusement as he chugged it down then asked for more.
"Say the magic words..." Cara sang making the boy blink in confusion.
"Uh...please?" He said hoarsely and Cara poured him another glass, stifling a giggle.
"Where are you from kid?" Badlah asked, stroking his pet python.
"Azuriya...." Ethan said tiredly as he flopped on the deck again. "Im Ethan Teef."
"The new land?" Ajnabi said and he and Badlah shared a look. "Interesting."

"It was the military rat!" Rhetta barked as she pointed as Toumaru. "he's the only one that could do it. They've wanted Perry dead for years!" she quickly slid over, across the table; tackling Toumaru to the ground and holding her sword to his throat.

Hector sighed as all the pirate lords began accusing each other. He started walking and ignored all the pirate accusations towards him.
He stopped and looked down at Perry. "Leonora, go find a doctor, we're going to need one," he said as he knelt down next to Perry. "What a horrible sight to see," he whispered.

Toumaru looked Rhetta straight in the eyes, “I understand why you blame me, but it wasn’t me” said Toumaru calmly, Rhetta held her sword on Toumaru’s neck, but the sword cracked and shattered after it touched Toumaru’s neck. Rhetta was surprised the see her sword shatter, but then she remember who she was dealing with, “‘Metal Fist’, why should I believe it wasn’t you” yelled Rhetta. Before Toumaru could speak, Dare spoke up, he had sit back down and put his feet on the table, obviously not caring what was happening to Perry, “Hishiga didn’t do it…his military may have Perry on its most wanted list, but they would never send Hishiga to kill him, too risky for them to make that move, besides, we all know Hishiga would turn down the mission” said Dare. Rhetta stood up and charged at Dare and grabbed his neck, “You seem rather calm, it must have been you that did this” yelled Rhetta as she squeezed Dare’s neck. Toumaru stood up, “That’s enough, Dare is innocent…he would never resort to such cowardly means like poisoning, Dare would have killed Perry the instant he got here” said Toumaru. Rhetta made an angry sound and lets go off Dare and stormed to the other side of the room. Everyone looked at Toumaru and Dare, “I guess ‘The Two Spectrums’ are innocent” said Hector quietly, as Leonora ran back in with a doctor, she heard what Hector had said, “The Two Spectrums?” asked Leonora to Hector. Hector nodded, “That’s right, if you put all of the Pirate Lords on a spectrum of good and evil, those two would be at each end” said Hector, “Toumaru Hishiga, he is on the good side of the spectrum, he never harms anyone unless they deserve it, even then he is merciful…then there is Richard Dare, he is on the evil side of the spectrum, he won’t hesitate to kill anyone or anything he wants, he doesn’t even need a reason to kill them, most of the time its out of boredom” said Hector. Leonora looked at Toumaru and Dare and could tell just by looking at them that they were polar opposites.

"Heh. Its endearing how you two stand up for each other." Silsilah snorted. "They are probably both in on it."
"Or you did it you old fart. " Rhetta yelled and Silsilah bristled, "Watch that ugly tongue Rhetta, its resembling more more like your ugly face."
Rhetta yelled and lauched herself at Silsilah. "Stop it." Ronald's voice thundered just as the doctor came into the room. The pirates watched as he went to examine the patient.
Leonora held her breath, the room was tense as they waited for the doctor to speak.

It has been a long long long long long while the pirates remain in the council room doing nothing.

(since I want to continue the story I will start of with the rest of them leaving Leonora trapped amongst the rough and somewhat crazy pirates )

"Im telling you..." Ethan exploded, "I wasn't badmouthing your leader. I was just saying she has been in there a long time and I have better things to do than wait for her."
"Thats it!" Kehkashan snapped and Ethan dodged the punch and backed away, tripping against a mop and falling on the deck. He quickly clambered to his feet but Kehkashan jumped on him and he fell back down with a thud, gritting his teeth as the pirate dug his elbow into Ethan's back. "APOLOGIZE FOR WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT LEONORA." Kehkashan thundered.
"BUT I DIDNT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT HER." Ethan yelled.
Cara was watching them, her chin in her hand, "Im betting Ethan can beat Kehkashan in a fight." She said thoughtfully.
"Looks like a wimp to me." Dashton said, without looking up from where he was polishing his sword. "Id bet my money on Kehkashan anytime."
"Oh?" Cara said with a little grin as she leaned back on her elbows and looked up at Dashton "How about a wager?"
"Hm?" Dashton looked at her. Badlah and Seeker walked over to listen to their conversation.
"I bet I can train Ethan and he'll beat Kehkashan in about...lets say...a week?!." Cara said with a wide grin.
Everyone looked interested and they looked over to where Ethan was beating the deck crying out "I give up! I give up!" as Kehkashan twisted his foot in a wrestling move.
"Impossible." Dashton shook his head.
"I think it can be done.' Badlah said and gave a bark like laugh. 'I have a mind to join this bet. I'll train the boy too."
Seeker stepped up and clapped Dashton on the shoulder indicating, he had picked a side. And so a bet was made.

Rhetta stood quiet as the doctor attended to the Pirate Lord. The thought of the perpetrator rested on her mind the entire time. Her bias pointed to Dare, but Toumaru could have done it easily. Hector seemed too calm in a situation like this. And, Leonara just became a pirate lord; she acts so innocent as well.

As she contemplated, she took notice of the mugs on the table. With a shock, she hurried to Perry's mug and examined the leftover juice strongly. She gave it a strong whiff and immediately knew the cause of this travesty. "Somebody poisoned this ale." she said. "It smells of Regflor, a poisonous plant from the west. It only grows in the jungles of Furen. Whoever wanted Perry dead, he wasn't from here."

"Regflor?" Hector asked. "All the way over here?" Hector asked, but he knew that this wasn't a surprise, especially for pirates. They probably knew it was from some merchants from the west doing illegal trading. He walked over to Rhetta and took the mug from her hands. He took a whiff of the ale himself.
Hector stood there silent for a moment. "She's right," he said as he placed the mug back onto the table. "There is a lot of it in the mug too, judging by the smell," he stated as he swung his cane over his shoulder.

Hector's eyes quickly scanned the room of pirates. "It doesn't look like anyone here was the culprit," Hector said as he turned to look at the Doctor tending to Perry. "How can you possibly know that?" Rhetta said at him. Hector turned his head to look at her. "Just a hunch."
-------------------------------------
Leo spun his guns around his fingers. They suddenly stopped as he pointed them in front of him. "Bang," he said as he pretended to shoot his guns. He sighed and looked up at Vince. "Wonder what is taking Hector so long," he asked.
"Who knows," Feng said as she walked up onto the deck. "But, I'm guessing all the other pirates here are thinking the same thing."
"Hope nothing bad happened," Leo said as he looked up into the sky.

'What is going on?' Lona sighed after another hour or so. 'What has happened? I'm sure normal meetings don't last so long. Why this one?' She stared idly over the sea, then back at the smooth wood of the much-climbed mast - mainly by her. The mast seemed to be her place. And the crow's nest. Always lookout. A breeze blew through her smooth hair, lifting it and messing it up a little. She liked the mast.

"He's dead." Ronald said harshly as he came into the room.
Nobody spoke as they digested the news. The Lord of the pirate council had been killed.
Leonora looked across the room. Her eyes went from blank face to blank face, unable to guess who could have done it. Who would dare to kill a the council lord? And then she gulped as she realized everyone in this room was quite capable of coldblooded murder.

Despite her love for a thrilling fight, she usually avoided killing if she could. She had learned quite early, that there was nothing more precious than human life and had vowed never to kill anyone if she could avoid it and it was an oath she valued greatly. But looking at this group, she realized she was meeting people in a different league. Cold blooded killers when it suited them.

"So what now?" Ronald asked and a babble broke out as the pirates talked amongst themselves about what to do.

"Don't worry." Hector said when he saw Leonora looking quite nervous. "They don't think you could have done it."

"Of course!!! I didn't do it." Lenora said then stopped and snapped indignantly. "Why ...don't think I'm capable of it?" She glared at him accusingly.
Hector smiled. "Is that a confession of your crime?"
"NO!" Leonora said taking an alarmed step back. "I just...Im telling you I could have done it if I WANTED to. But of course I didn't do it because I didn't want to..nor need to..or want to..." She was babbling nervously. "I didn't do it." She finally finished and Hector grinned as he said, "That's what I said!"
Leonora pursed her lips and turned her back to him as she listened to what the others were saying.

"According to Pirate code," Rhetta said, " Perry's heir is to take his place. Only problem is he never named an official heir. So that leaves the position, and the power, up for grabs...This is startin' to look more and more like a conspiracy fellows." Rhetta eyed the room quickly from left to right, scanning the pirate lord's eyes and taking note of their own doings. "Let's get this clear! I don't trust any of you bastards! And, I ain't gonna stop till I find out who did this. And, once I do, they'll have to answer to me!
Rhetta stormed out without a second word and returned to her ship.
"Miss Rhetta," Leetuh said, "you've returned!"
'It's about time." Monki said.
Ratcher stood against the wall and Biz sat on one of her cannons.
"Biz! Load the cannons! Lettuh bring the ship out to sea 1/2 knots. We've business to take care of!"

Ethan hummed under his breath as he stared at the breathtaking view of the ocean from the ship's deck where he sat peeling potatoes with Kehkashan. The ocean breeze ruffled his hair and he felt refreshed as he inhaled the salty air. He dropped another peeled potato into the basket and tried not to preen at how perfectly he had peeled them, considering he had never touched an uncooked potato before, let alone peel it.
Kehkashan on the other hand, he noted with growing smugness, was an awful peeler. The potato looked sadly deformed after the pirate finished with it and savagely tossed it in the basket.
"I hate this." Kehkashan yelled and received a smack on his head from Badlah. "Quit ye whining." Badlah barked.
"You're suppose to hold the knife like this." Ethan said and with maddening superiority, held up his knife for Kehkashan to behold and admire. Kehkashan threw a potato at him and Ethan ducked, glaring at him.
Cara observed it all "The boy's fast." She murmured with satisfaction. She had no plans to lose the wager against Dashton.
She waited till the boys had finished peeling the potatoes then walked up to Ethan. "You have fast reflexes." She said and he smiled, looking pleased. It was a shy smile and she thought he was exceedingly endearing. She continued. "That first day you scuffled with Kehkashan. You were holding back?"
"Well...yeah...I couldn't risk fighting him." Ethan remarked as he caught the mop Seeker tossed to him and began mopping the deck. In just 3 days Ive become so familiar with this place. Ethan thought and smiled.
"I was surrounded by ...new people. I couldn't risk injuring Kehkshan in case you guys decided to make me walk the plank." He said with a half smile.
"Haha. Smart." Cara grinned and also picked up a mop. Together they began cleaning the deck.
"But you shouldn't hold back." Cara said. "If someone attacks you, you should stand up for yourself. If someone slaps you, slap them back twice hard, so they know who're they messing with."
"That's not what my dad says." Ethan said and suddenly he fell terribly homesick. "He says to talk it out as much as you can. He says peace is always better than violence and to avoid violence as much as you can." He leaned against the mop and stared out at the ocean.
"War destroys much faster than it heals." Ethan murmured and Cara stared at him, quietly.
"When will Leonora be back?" He asked, changing the topic. Thinking of his family, hurt. He wanted to be with them as soon as he could.
Are they worried about me? He wondered and felt guilty for trying to run away.
"No idea." Cara said cheerfully. "Do you know how to wield a sword?"
"Uh...yeah...a bit...I don't prefer em." Ethan admitted.
"What do you prefer then?" Cara asked solemnly.
"Summons." Ethan said and went on proudly. "Im a descendant of Jusuf. He was the greatest Summoner of all time. And then my Dad. He's awesome." And he rattled off all the things his ancestor and Kyle could summon.
"Wow." Cara said, impressed. "What about you?"
"What about me?" Ethan asked.
"What can you summon?"
"Well..." He hedged. "Im..I still...haven't...summoned anything."
Cara looked at him then started laughing. Ethan flushed angrily, thinking she was laughing at him and turned away. "Excuse me. I have to keep this away." He said stiffly and picked up the mop and bucket and stalked away.

Later, he was sitting on top of the sails. Cara swung up to join him. "Are you sulking?" She teased, settling down besides him.
"No." He snapped. Though he was.
"Good. Big boys don't sulk." Cara said then smiled as Ethan glared at her. "It doesn't matter if you can summon or not. You shouldn't let that stop you from learning how to wield a sword or whatever else you can master."
Ethan was about to snap back that he didn't let anything stop him from anything when Cara took his hands and said. "I want to train you."
"Why?" Ethan asked taken aback.
"Because I have a wager against Dashton that you can beat Kehkashan after Im through with you." Cara said with a grin then added seriously. "And also because I want to. I think you have amazing potential hidden away and I want to see how well I can help you bring it out."
"HIDDEN?" Ethan scoffed then stopped, thinking it over. "Alright." He agreed. He gave another one of his shy smiles and Cara leaned over and kissed his cheek. Making him almost fall off the top mast.
"Wow. Im thinking these lessons will be good." Ethan said with a grin.
"Not a chance." Cara said and winked. "Im a hard teacher. And lessons begin in an hour." And with that she swung down and out of sight.
****
"Meetings over I guess." Leonora muttered. Man, what fiasco. She slipped out of the room and out towards her ship. Her crew cheered when they saw her. And she told them in detail about everything that had happened in there.
"Strange." Ajnabi said, frowning.
"Lets get out of here." Leonora muttered. "I hope I don't have to come back for a long time."
Her crew prepared the ship and they set sail.

Kyle watched as a few miles away from the boundary of Jahan a huge fleet of Mytlon ships were stationed. Ready to attack at any given order. Kyle realized and his mouth tightened.
Nina came into his office. "The prime minister has informed us that they will hold the meeting on their ship." She said.
"I see." Kyle said. "Thats fine." He turned away from the window and sat down on a chair.
"We'll be there in a couple of hours." Nina said and began making coffee. "It will be tough. They think we are guilty." Nina said.
"I know." Kyle said and took the cup from her hand, "Let's see how it goes."
***
It was going very badly.
From the very first step he took on Mytlon's ship, Kyle knew he was in for some very cold hostility. The crew of the imperial ship glared at him and all of them had their hands on their swords.
His own team's weapons had been taken away and they were searched and researched some15 times before they were allowed to board the ship.
"Only one person will be allowed to accompany the president to meet the King." One of the imperial guards barked.
Kyle kept his face pleasant, but he was feeling remarkably like a hardened criminal about to meet the King.
Which is probably what they think I am. Kyle sighed mentally and resolved to do everything in his power to make this work.

As Nina and Kyle walked towards the King's room, Kyle thought he saw a familiar shape but when he turned and looked there was no one there.
Nina looked calm but her hands were cold when she touched his arm. "We can do this." Nina whispered and Kyle smiled. "Yeah." He said and then they both stepped inside.

Corra waited on the deck of her ship in the nearby waters, watching with her binoculars at the events that took place on the imperial flag-ship's deck. She watched with eager reaction as the imperial crew gripped their swords and searched the president over and over again.
"I hate this," she said to herself. "meetings of two worlds should never be this tense."
