He kept his eyes on her as she spoke and listened to the words coming from her mouth. If everything she stated was right, then she could be very useful during his journey. Though, as the whole conversation kept going on, he actually started to get bored already. Not that he wasnt interested in her skills anymore, but simply because he wanted to see it for himself, rather than believing in what she said. Because of the boredom, he slowly started rotating his sword under her chin. Maybe to cut her on purpose or simply to test if his sword was still as sharp as he thought it to be. "Fine," he eventually said before he took his sword back. He slid the blade along the sheath he carried on his hip, before sliding it back in. He turned around as he was on the edge of leaving. "Find the smallest room in the basement and lock her up," he told two men before he calmly left

As I felt the rotation of the sword it was as if every moment he could just rush his blade through and end it. Was it a way for him just to show how he had the power to end me at any point? The longer we were at the position we were in, the more I felt my sanity and pride as a lady slip away from under myself. When the final jurisdiction came, my lips formed a "thank you" but the words got stuck in my throat and didn't come out, as if his sword had pushed them in there. His two man grabbed me without any delicacy and if it were the old me, I would've told them off for it but the way I was now I couldn't bring anything out. On the walk back to the basement, we passed by the same chests as I hid in, containing my dresses and other clothes. It reminded me of who I was, a push in the back that I needed to not fully break down. I straightened my back again, but at that point they found the smallest room and threw me in there before slamming the door and locking it up. I decided not to resist and just sat down in the same position for a while, calmly looking through the room. We didn't have a prison on our boat, so what I got was a small room for our crewmen. There wasn't anything more than two beds with each a little coffin containing the crewmen's belongings in front of them. I didn't want to intrude their privacy and didn't touch the coffins at all, and just took off my corset, leaving only my undergartments on and laid myself on one of the beds, engulfing myself with the blanket that was on it.

He had made his way to the captain's quarters what he thoroughly started exploring as soon as he had entered. Maybe there were some old maps he didnt had yet. Some information about countries he hadnt visited yet. He could add all of that to his own collection of maps and information. As he explored every drawer and examined every paper, time passed faster than he realized. Most papers, wherent even useful either.. He let out a deep sigh and let himself fall in the big chair. Beside from having a new and more luxurious ship, it hasnt gotten him much closer to his goal. And now they even had a hostage to take care after.. "Dealing with her is definitely gonna be a pain in the-" he muttered softly as he thought about the moment he found her in the basement. Of course he was aware of the fact that he had to stay friends with her in order to get her to obey him. Though if she wouldn’t, he could still make her jump from the plank. But that would mean, he didn’t had anyone to tutor him anymore. “Tsk,” he flicked his tongue by the thought before he pushed himself out of the chair. He rested his hand on his sword as he made his way out of the captain’s quarters. The hallway was empty and there was nobody in his way to the basement. Of course there wasn’t, it was already dinner time by now anyway. Most of the crew where eating their well-deserved dinner and celebrated their new ship with lots of rum. He entered the basement floor and looked around to find the room they had brought Adelynn to. Which wasn’t that hard to find as he heard the two guards arguing about eating. “I’ll go first, then I’ll be back later,” the first voice said. “But then there will be nothing left when I get there,” a second voice said. “That isn’t my fault, I don’t even understand why he decided to keep her as a hostage,” the first voice spoke again. “Wherent you the one who wanted to sell her? That would still lead us to keeping her as a hostage till then,” the second voice sounded louder as Johnny approached them. “You two,” he looked at them and the two guards immediately turned around to him, “J-Johnny, y-you where listening huh..?” the second voice stuttered softly. “The girl is in here, there is only a small window in this room, from which she cant escape trough,” the first man told him. Johnny nodded his head before he noticed a small plate with some dry bread and only half a cup of rum, probably the dinner for their new hostage. He let out a soft chuckle as he imagined how she must felt, growing up in a rich family and getting to eat full course menus before ending up in the back of their own ship, eating the dry bread crumps that were over. “Thank you, now go and have your dinners, I’ll keep an eye on her and wait for your returns,” he said and watched how the two of them immediately ran out of the hallway. Johnny could still see them arguing with each other, as if they were two wild animals, fighting for the biggest part of their prey. He trailed his eyes back to the plate with bread and picked it up. He took the keys from the wall and walked over to the door. “Room service~” he called with more of a dry tune as he used the key to unlock the door so he could open it

I just layed on the bed looking at the ceiling, listening to my two guards discussing over how much they disliked taking care of me. The walls in the ship were quite thin, which made it practically impossible not to hear they whole conversation word per word clearly. I couldn't care about their complaints and regrets for keeping me on the ship at this point. I was still alive by now and there was only one person that could pretty much decide otherwise and that person probably has better things to do and to think of than coming and checking up on the little lady all the time. Judging from the conversation between the two men, it was about time for dinner. I prepared myself and put my dress over my undergartments again in case someone would enter the door, as I had a feeling none of the pirates would have the delicacy to knock on the door before entering to know if I was in a showable sight. I looked down on my dress, seeing how it was rigged and not really called 'decent' anymore. Then I heard a change in voices and a slightly familiar voice. It was Johnny. Suddenly the door opened and I suspiciously looked at him and the plate he was holding. "A good evening to you," I said to him and looked straight at him, "there's no need for a little show tho, I know noble blood is nothing worth on this ship and you're more the decider here than I am." I didn't necessarily wanted to be cheeky at him, but I wanted to skip the fluff as soon as possible and get down to business. I knew he kept me on this ship for a reason and I'd rather know it sooner than later, showing my worth and keeping myself from getting a ticket over the Styx into the land of the dead. "I didn't expect my food to be brought by yours truly."

He slightly raised an eyebrow as she told him it was unnecessary to put up a front, he wasnt really interested in her opinion about him. “And I didn’t expected you to get so desperate to trade your own body, but look where we are,” he commended on her last line before he placed the plate and cup on one of the small coffins. “Anyway, you should better try and enjoy my company, its not like you will have many visitors in here,” he simply shrugged his shoulders before he went to lean against the door. “Eat up,” he told her, referring to the dry bread crumps, “it will taste worse the later you eat.”

"I think there was a lot that we both didn't expect from eachother," I replied to his comment. To his request, I took the bread and began to eat it. Every bite felt like it dried my throat more and more I drank a gullible bit of the rhum that came with it, but only felt which drink it was afterwards. My whole chest felt like it was on fire and my body began to automatically cough. I should've confirmed which drink it was before drinking as much as I did. "Your company is much appreciated," I said when I regained my ability to breathe and directed my attention to him leaning against the door, "but please tell me, what is it that you want from me that makes you believe it is worth to keep me alive. Of course they tell us a lot of stories about pirates and what they do to you when they catch you, specifically to women. So I want to be.... mentally prepared if it's possible." I looked down to the bed for a moment with a face of concern. When I dared again, I looked up to Johnny to see what his reaction would be in the end.

He quietly watched her drinking the rum before he started laughing when she ended up coughing. "Oh, before i forget, you shouldnt drink it all at once," he said with a small sadistic smirk, as he knew it was already to late. Not that he cared about it, he didnt forced her if it was to strong, but neither would he waste the little amount of clean water. There was literally more rum aboard than clean water. Johnny's crewmen where big drunkards after all and either Johnny often held parties about the simplest things to avoid his responsibilities. His expression turned uninterested again as she spoke. "Hm, i wonder what those stories tell about us," he looked at her and a mocking smirk spread across his face, "i hope it isnt all thàt bad." He continued a with a  chuckle on the end before he his expression actually turned all serious. "Did you forgot when i asked for your knowledge? I.. want you to teach me about more about the countries and languages i dont know. Thats all you need to know," he said before his expresion easily loosened, "but i guess you start cleaning the deck with a toothbrush or something, making it even shinier than it already is!" He started laughing mockingly again

I could only look menacing at him while he made fun of me with the rhum but my face loosened up later when he gave a little of what he'd have me do. He never had anyone to teach him anything, did he? I reminded myself of my lifestyle where everything was just given where he in the end only had a way of fighting for himself. And at that point I decided I'd stop being the spoiled child I was and maybe put everything I have into something good. Even if his personality wasn't the type that I'd enjoy the most, he did spare my life even if it were for his own benefits. "All it is that you want," I replied to him, to all the mocking that he gave. Deep within I understood that if we were to be against eachother all the time, it wouldn't really amount to anything in the end and if I were to be the first one to be a little more open who knows his mocking words would lessen and maybe in the end I'd be able to crush through his wall. "Well I won't really be leaving this room anytime soon, so I guess you'd come here to kill time every once in a while anyway," I added and tried to sit down more relaxed in the bed that I was sitting on, "could I ask for a different dress though? This one is all rigged and I have less extravagant and easier to move in dresses in my coffin. Of course, you can let your men inspect it first, though there normally shouldn't be anything suspicious in there."

His smile disappeared when her attitude changed  as she sounded more willing. He raised an eyebrow as he tried to think about the reason for her sudden mood swing. "Like i said, if you want you can clean the deck. Or help preparing dinner next time like the others suggested earlier," he shrugged, after her new attitude, his expression had immediately gotten a bit dry and his voice sounded a more monotone. Though, her next comment slightly caught him of guard. "You really think i came because i dont have anything better to do?!" He asked her, slightly raising his voice. Then he lowered his head and looked away with a pout, "they're celebrating the new ship, i could have been there and spent time with my men instead of having to babysit you," he said. As he was still young, parties where one of the things he loved the most. He looked back at her with the same dry expression as before as she mentioned her clothes. "Oh, sure," he said woth a monotone tone again before he walked out of the room. He didnt even locked it. Probably to see if she was obligated enoug to stay in, or simply to have fun chasing her as she would try to escape

I looked at him, and noticed how he was finding it strange that I was going with what he was saying. "I'm sorry I just assumed you chose to be here rather than up there because you didn't want to be there," I said as I slightly lowered my head, but Johny was already about to leave the room. I felt the monotomeness in his voice. Was my way of thinking actually the right way of thinking? Or would it only worsen things above how they already are. I didn't hear a click that the door got locked, but I didn't pay too much attention to it. I decided to lay down on the bed again and try to catch some sleep. There was a blanket laying around and as it was just a thin woolen one, I felt it was colder than the thick blanket that I had in my room. I took the blanket of the second bed and pulled it over me as well to try to find the warmth needed to fall asleep. In the end I had the warmth I wanted but my mind kept me awake. I tried to force sleep by closing my eyes. As the silence in the room closed in, I heard a small bit of the party that he talked about. I decided to wait for a while to see if I'd get any more guards or visits and to maybe after that try to go and see the party for myself from afar.

He walked back to the storage to find the coffin she mentioned. Not like any of the crew where gonna need it anyway, to be honest, they probably wouldnt need most of the stuff that where stored. If they would be able to sell it, he could raise the salary of the others, buy for professional repairs and rum, lots of rum. Sometimes, he swung his sword trough some coffins to open them, maybe he would find anything else value like golden jewelry or something. Eventually, he found a coffin full of cloths, in different fabrics, colors and patterns. He stabbed his sword in the cloths, but he didnt tried to cut them or anything. He slightly raised one of the clothes with the blade and immediately recognized it as a dress. He sighed softly, "As if im a delivery boy.." he spoke to himself before putting his sword away. He lifted up the coffin and carried it back to the room Adelynn was kept, where he simply threw it to the floor, making everything to slide out from it. "im not even sure if this is the coffin you meant, and neither do i care about it," he said laid-back before

As I was in my room, listening to the music and closing my eyes to imagine how it were to be like, I heard the heavy footsteps of Johny coming back. Not even a minute later, he entered the room with the coffin and my dresses spread out over the ground as the coffin opened itself again. I looked up to Johny with sparkling eyes and sat as if I could jump up and hug him at any point. "Thank you so very much!" I yelled, with gratitude from my heart and touched by his effort, which I never thought was going to be happening. Maybe changing my attitude towards him wasn't that horrible of an idea after all. I almost immediately scooped up a dress close to me, and held it to my chest like a precious gift was given. "You have know idea how much I'm actually glad to get this coffin, wearing a rigged and indecent dress between a whole bunch of men makes me feel like I losee all rights of being wed to a man one day," I spoke, not really knowing why I was telling him this myself, "and then I just hear nana's voice in my head how lonely an existance is if a lady were to not-" I couldn't finish my sentence at that point, as I realized where I was and remembered that different values are valid in this place, one being the fact that it's more likely for me to turn out to become a slave rather than a bride. And just like nana said, I would most likely end up as a lonely existance, merely being a toy for men. How frustrating. "My apologies," I said silently, "I shouldn't let my mouth run like that."

his expression didnt changed as she thanked him so excited, for him they were just some pieces of cloth. But then again, he wasnt a girl and his rank was higher than Adelynn on the ship, he commanded this 'whole bunch of men' she talked about. He raised an eyebrow when she started about her rights of being able to marry one day, neither did he cared about marriage, or maybe he just didnt had the time to actually think about life that way. "i dont think you'll have to worry about not being able to marry someone," he shrugged, "you'll most like-" even before he was done, he stopped by hearing the sounds of the guards. “..Right..” he replied after her apologize, still uninterested in her actual dreams and stuff. “Finish your food and get dressed properly, the nights can be quite cold on the sea~” he told her before he turned around and started leaving the room

When the guards were approaching again, it was as if Johny changed back to how he usually was. I felt as if he put up a mask, rather than having his actual true colors or thoughts really to be showing. The sudden change brough me slightly off balance, and I couldn't bring out any more of a reply than a stammering "y-yeah". My eyes fell back to the food that was still standing there, and my hand subconsciously grabbed to it and put it to my mouth to start eating. When it was finally done, I chose a small brown dress with a slightly higher skirt so that I'd be able to easily move around. But as there wasn't a high chance for me to go anywhere but to sleep, I figured I didn't need to go through the efforts of putting it on, seeing how I'd probably stay in my undergartments and just go to sleep. I just laid the dress on the bed and put the coffin straight to fold and put my dresses back in the place they'd belong to. After cleaning the mess, I laid myself in the bed and silently tried to go to sleep.

He left the room and shared a look with the guards. "i'll leave her in your care again for tonight," he told them, "If she wont sleep, make sure to do everything to keep her quiet. We cant have her waking up the whole crew." "Aye Captain! Johnny!" the two said as they positioned themselves in front of the door again. Johnny flicked his tongue once, he still couldnt handle the nickname as it made him feel like they were still looking down on him. As if he was still that child from years ago. Though, he didnt felt like dealing with it right now. Without saying a last word to the two, he made his way back upstairs to the floor with the dining room.

At least he was able to look around on the ship the moment they hijacked it, the moment before he found Adelynn in the storage. As he reached the dining room, the whole rum party had almost finished. It was a complete mess. Anywhere he looked, he found at least two empty cups laying abandoned on the ground or table. Most crew members had already gone to their rooms or where wandering around, trying to find their room. But the last few where laying on the ground or leaning against the table, waiting for the moment they could move their body again. Johnny chuckled softly at the sight but felt bad for missing another great party. With a small sigh of regret, he turned around and walked away. They could clean up the mess the next day anyway.

He walked back to the captain’s quarters and changed into his night wear. None of them actually ever showered as there wasnt a shower onboard on their old ship. They usually bathed when they were on land or in the ocean when they had reached calm water. He got into the bed, which was obviously softer than the ones in the old ship. He took some letters from the nightstand, some of the ones he found in the desk earlier but hasn’t read yet. Though, every minute he spend on reading them, he drifted away faster by the soft bed till he eventually fell in a deep sleep
