Came home on 1/6/14. Thank you so much, a_kirst14_a!
Zhoton grinned as she stared at the majestic ship before her. The golden trimming, the crisp white sails, the name carved into the side of the ship "Pearl of the Queen." All her life, she had been working towards this one moment. Everyone taunted her, saying that she would never become a captain. Simply because she was a woman.
And now, here she was, with a hand picked crew, and one of the fastest ships in the lands.
When all their farewells had been said, the sails were unfurled, the anchor raised, and they sailed away into the open seas.
Almost immediately, Zhoton discarded the crisp naval uniform presented to her by the king and queen. Underneath, she wore the dress of a pirate girl.
She smirked, the king and queen thought that she was their faithful servant. But she served only herself, and she was, in fact... a pirate. And so were all the members of their crew.
And pirates did everything to make life as hard as possible for the royals.
Now not only did she have a fantastic ship at her command, she also had the kingdom's trust.
And if that didn't make her the perfect spy, nothing did.
(Thank you, sparkgal!)
