Jay closed the door. "Hey, I did what my job was, now,tell me what happened".
"I don't need to tell you anything. Now get out!" She grabbed him by the ear. and threw him out of the cabin onto the deck. She turned back and ruffled through some clothes. She took off her dress and put on breeches, a shirt, and a vest.
He stumbled out of the cabin, feeling blood pulsing through his ear. That really hurt, but he had to talk to her. Try and let her know that he meant her good, that he could help. He slipped a small dagger into his sleeve, hiding it from view, then went back in again
"I thought I told you to GET OUT!!" She buttoned the last one on the vest and whirled around to face him. She noticed a small bulge in his sleeve, and a glint of steel protruding from it. "Oh I see, can't protect yourself from a girl so you bring a knife?"
"Stop with the taunts" Jay said calmly and comforting. Truth was, he knew this girl could probably do damage. "Clara, just tell me what's wrong"
"I don't need to tell you anything!" The ship sudeenly jolted to the side and she fell over. "What was that!?"
Jay walked over and held out a hand to her to help. "I don't know"
She helped herself up as yells and shouts came from the outside as a cannon whizzed over the deck. Clara opened a side porthole and saw...... a french ship? Well it was better than nothing.
"Hey, stay in here" Jay warned as he drew his cutlass
Clara grabbed himby the arm and spun him around while tying him with a rope. "No thanks," she said as she took his cutlass. She made sure his bonds were nice and tight. "Hope you're uncomfortable." She rushed out and saw the french ship coming close. Thank the Lord above it was the Navy. A few pirates swung over to the ship. She ran for a line.
Jay couldn't believe the tables which had turned so suddenly. Clara, a few hours ago, was at least able to compromise, now, she was....different. He started slicing at the rope with his dagger
She leapt up and grabbed a rope. With a massive heave she swung over to the other side. Pirates were being beaten left and right. She ducked as one french soldier tried to stab her with a bayonet. She showed she was a girl to him and he led her away towards the captain's quarters.
Jay cut himself loose, and chased after her, stabbing a few Frenchman
She saw Jay coming for her. Suddenly, a cannon met the artillery cabin on the Pirate ship. The ship erupted into flames and began to sink. The explosion caused the french ship's hull to break apart. The deck went into a state of panic as they scrambled for the life boats, trampeling everything in their path. She felt arms around her waist pull her over the side. Just before they hit the water she saw the one holding her was Jay.
Jay had jumped for her as soon as the explosion happened. Water, that's all he thought. And it was a good thing there was a lot of it. He brought her down in a dive, and realized they dove down deep
