The Captain tilted his head as he thought about it for a moment. He was in need of more crew, and he could use the extra hand in the kitchen. As long as she kept out of plain sight ans stayed out of his way, this could work. He extended his hand to her, “Welcome aboard.” He said as they shook hands.
“What's your weapon?!” Captain Leopold demanded once she was aboard. At the time Sage thought he was kidding. “Well let's see... My charm is it?” She added with a grin. Only nobody was grinning back, in fact they were all starring at her expectantly, their faces grim and serious.
Captain cleared his throat, “Your charm is going to do little to save you, when your up against a ravenous beast now is it?.”
Sage heard the engine start up, they had just taken off. She stifled a laugh, “I'm sorry I thought you just said beast old man?” She fell into a fit of giggles.
“Hey!” He raised his voice to by heard over her laughter. Sage bit her lip to keep from laughing. She looked out the window, the buildings became smaller and smaller.
Sage's mouth went dry, “Please tell me your kidding?” Sage looked to the crew for guidance. They still wore their stone cold expressions.
“ Crossbow it is?” Captain Leopold injected cheerfully, heading towards the weapons room. He came back with sleek silver bow and handed it to sage, along with a supply of arrows.
“What do you want me to do with this?” Sage asked her bravado dieing down some.
“Well option one you can learn how to use it or option two you can be killed.” He chimed and the crew roared with laughter.
