Being a Pirate often has its consequences, despite the common belief that it’s adventurous. The sea is a lonely place and being a Pirate means having no social life and no warm, loving family. Until of course I met my owner. It turned my lonely life around, and today I’m here to share my story, giving my fellow Pirates hope. Hope that there is more than just the sea…
It was going back a while ago now; I was simply a former Royal looking for some thrills. The sea could not satisfy my need for adventures and as months turned into years, sanity and communication skills faded. My crew were happy, but I was not. One quiet night we sat and ate in complete silence, listening to the roar of the sea gently lapping against the ship. I had enough of the silence, I had years of it.
“I think we should go to shore.” I suggested.
The crew members looked at me with much bewilderment. The large Scorchio, Malachite the Fearsome as we called him, slammed his fists down on the table.
“No! You know the consequences of docking. We’re Pirates, we’re hated.” He exclaimed.
“Yes, that is true. But the sea has grown boring. There’s nothing here.” I replied.
“Except freedom…” He said.
I threw my food across the deck and glared at him, knowing that I wouldn’t win the argument. The chef, an Orange Blumaroo, scowled at me as I left the room. I opted for some fresh air and lent over the ship, staring into the black sea. I felt a presence behind me but did not turn around. Malachite probably wants a second round, I thought to myself. Before I could speak, I found myself in the freezing water, I was pushed overboard! I gulped in water and panicked as I tried to look back at the ship, I saw something Orange… Everything went black…it was so cold…
I finally awoke, in a warm NeoHome. A cup of Borovan sat on the table in front of me.
“Where am I?” I gasped.
“You’re safe.” Said a Plushie Buzz. “I’m Mailed. I found you this morning on Mystery Island beach, what happened?” he asked.
“I…don’t really know. I was pushed off my ship. I need to get back! Bon…”
“It doesn’t look like you’re fit to go anywhere. Your ship will be long gone by now too. Why not stay here for a while? My owner said that would be fine.” He interrupted.
I nodded and decided that staying for a while wouldn’t be so bad. I drank my cup of Borovan, and eventually time passed…which is what generally happens. Before I knew it, I had become a family member. Mailed, Lapped, Edib and Proagain were my family and I was happy for once. I hadn’t felt lonely for years, and even when they weren’t around, I knew they thought of me. Besides, I even have my Pirate Weewoo, DESTROY, to take care of. We have fun being Pirates together. And stealing Mailed’s toothpaste is always fun.
