Ember snorted and flipped her hair, "I thought of something last mintue. He doesnt know mermaids very well." she transformed and let it register in Ace brain then switched back. "He didn't know what to make of me.' She smiled and touched his cheek, "I'll be okay for tonight."
Ace was confused by what Ember meant, until she transformed in front of him that is. He smiled, and laughed as he embraced her in a warm, lasting hug. "Ember, you're a genius! That'll keep them away, at least for a little while. I hope no one else comes in for the rest of night..."
Ember shook herself, "I hope not." She leaned into him, glad dispite herself for him being there. For a second she felt safe. That was untill the door slammed open and a man stormed in. everyone froze for a second.
Ace sighed softly, relaxing as Ember leaned against him. When the door slammed and a man appeared, Ace froze. He gently leaned away from Ember, and stepped in front of her, pulling out his sword that he always carried with him. It was dark, so he couldn't recognize the man's face, and for his sake, he hoped the man couldn't recognize his. "Get out, I'm not finished yet." he growled, hoping he would be mistaken for just another crew member.
The man pulled out his sword in kind. "Who are you?" He couldn't reconize the man's face, and he knew everyone on the ship. He certainly didn't reconize the oice. Could they have a stoaway?
Ace paused for a moment before answering the man. "I'm Peter. I think it's about time you get out of here, wait your turn." Ace growled demandingly, praying there was someone on this ship named Peter. If not, he was done for. He kept his sword protectively in front of him.
The man relaxed, "Oh Peter, I didn't reconize you." He turned to the door and Ember relaxed slightly. The man had almost left when he spun and flung a knife at Ace. "Stoaway!!!!" He screamed.
Ace let out a brief sigh of relief, but tensed up when the man turned back. He thrust his sword in the direction of the man. Ace knew he had been caught, there was no way around it now. He ducked when the knife came, pushing Ember out of its path. Taking a few steps forward, he waved the sword threateningly in front of the man.
