First Mate Katrin Sweeny

I watch Christian go, thinking how grateful I am to him, for everything. He's the one that recued me, and brought me where I am today.

I losy my parents at the age of 5. It was a very difficult time for me, though I did not fully understand whatwas happening. All I knew was that I wanted my parents back. So I went to three orphanages, and ran from all three. Finally, it sank in that my parents were gone. I collapsed on the ground crying.

I remember waking up to a face in front of mine, not much older than me. I sat up, and he started walking away. I followed him. He trained me on how to fight and fend for myself. Then he got me a job on a ship. Like him, I worked my way through the ranks, finally arriving to my present position.

Hearing a voice, I snap out of my daydream with a sheepish grin on my face. I tend to daydream alot. Clearing my throat, I turn to face the voice, the cabin boy John.

"Final preperations for the party are almost ready, mistress." he says.

I smile. "The boys will be happy to hear that." I say with a smile.

"Would you like me to spread the word?" John asks.

My smile widens. "Go ahead. I'll get the Captian."

The End
