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 ?
