Legend Of The Black Dove
(Part 8) "The Masked Avenger"
Lamont and his men seemed badly outnumbered as the soldiers
burst through the barricades, shooting and killing indiscriminately.
Norrington realising the situation is desperate and decides to leave
the battle zone so he could once again become the Black Dove.
The Dove sneaks past the guards and into Garcia's
tent. Sword in hand, He now forces Garcia to sign a declaration of a
new bill to be passed by the Mexican government, stating that
Monterey is to be withdrawn from Mexico now under the control
of the North America government, meaning the Mexicans have no
rights to the farmers' and landowners' wealth. The Dove now has
this declaration stipulating the Mexicans are now on foreign soil
and will be imprisoned if they do not leave. Garcia and the
Black Dove step out of the tent to give the order for his men to
free the prisoners and remove themselves from their lands.
Lamont and the prisoners cheer as the Black Dove finally has the
whip hand over the Mexicans. Lamont asks the Dove to reveal his
identity, who responds by saying he stands for justice and his identity
must remain a secret, and rides off into the distance. Making a Circle
and riding back he becomes John Norrington again joining Bill Jenkins
on the journey back home. Boarding a coach they travel to Monterey
harbour, where they board the ship 'Columbia' making it's maiden
voyage, it's destination being England. The ship leaves the pier and is
finally at sea. The weather is cold and the sea is calm as the 'Columbia'
goes out to sea. Norrington and Jenkins fall asleep in their cabin at last
after there exhausting ordeal. Up on the deck the captain senses something
is wrong with the ship. As the weather picks up to a squall the ship gains
amazing speed and then a strange mist engulfs her. By this time the
ship is travelling at an amazing speed of 2000 knots, and then she slows
down to almost dead stop. Once again they are in a harbour, but where are
they? It is daylight again, it only having been night just for an hour before they left.
Where are they now ?
What alien force controlled the ship?
Make the discovery in Part 9...."Voyage To Where"
