Legend Of The Black Dove
(Part 6) "Peril At Sea"
The Black Dove whilst trapped under the water, uses his amazing strength
to break the chains that bind his body, he then swims under the ship and
climbs up the rigging then climbing on deck. He discards his mask and clothing
and assumes the role of John Norrington. He looks for an opportunity
to obtain dry clothing. Finding a storage locker he puts on a sailor's outfit.
He then goes in search of Bill Jenkins, he notices him inside of the galley
where he is working as a cook. He is alone as Norrington goes in to talk to
him. On the main deck the pirate captain observes two American frigates
heading towards them. He orders his men to open fire on the vessels, the
two ships fire back and prepare to board 'Raven'. The pirates are ready to
do battle. As 'Raven' picks up speed and is pulling away from the slower
frigates, the other ships keep firing all cannons at the fleeing ship,
while whereas down below Norrington and Jenkins arm themselves with
the intention of stopping the pirates somehow, they charge on deck with
swords in hands. Norrington manages to fight off most of the men using his
super strength and speed. Jenkins holds with two loaded pistols in his hand
holding the pirates at bay, while Norrington and the pirate Captain are
fighting a duel to the death with swords. While all this is going on the ship
in the meantime, the ship is hit twice by cannon fire and the third blast
hits the main mast at the bow of the ship, causing it to fall where Norrington
and the captain are fighting. The other men run for their lives as the huge
mast collapses with a loud thud.
Can these men survive the onslaught of the falling mast ?.....
Will Bill Jenkins be rescued by the opposing enemy sailors ?......
These questions and more will be answered
in Part 7 "Civil Unrest".
