Legend Of The Black Dove - Part 5

                         Legend Of The Black Dove 
             (Part 5) "Adventures On The High Seas"

The quicksand has claimed one victim, the fleeing horse and the real 

Black Dove is trapped underneath the quicksand. He manages to grab the 

horses tail and climb on the side of the horse and with brute strength

jumps clear of the sand  onto firm ground, he also manages to rescue 

the  imposter from the sand, he was unconscious but still alive. Moments 

later the kings guards arrive. They decide to unmask the Black Dove, 

but to their surprise, they find Jack Wild behind the mask. Norrington 

can hardly believe what he sees, as Jack Wild had died  in the mine 

having being impaled on a pinnacle, Wild tells him he was 

his twin brother Luke, and pledges to kill the Black Dove the moment he 

finds him. The soldiers cart him off with the other prisoners, and

Norrington is taken back to Norrington Manor.  When he arrives he

is greeted by his friend and butler Bill Jenkins, who said he has booked a 

passage for them both on a ship heading for South America. He was asked 

for assistance in a landowner's dispute in Monteray (California). They board

the ship and moments later she leaves for California. The ship is seaborne for

two days when they are attacked by a pirate ship. Norrington and Jenkins 

are in their cabin when the ship is boarded by pirates. The pirates  capture 

all  crew members and  approached the cabin were Norringtoan and Jenkins 

are standing.  Moments later as they entered the cabin, they see one man 

standing there with a sword in one hand and a gun in the other. It is the 

Black Dove. The pirates attack him as he shoots one pirate and starts fighting 

with the other. He escapes the cabin and tries to find a hiding place but is 

seized by three more pirates and taken on deck. The Captain of the pirates 

decides to make him walk the plank. His hands are bound and he is been 

weighted down with heavy chains, then forced to walk the plank, He is 

pushed into the ocean and as he goes down quickly to the bottom, the 

pirates laugh at his ill fortune.......Has the Black Dove drowned in the sea? 

What will become of Bill Jenkins trapped alone on the ship ?

Don't miss "Peril At Sea" Part 6 next time.
