Chapter 1: You Want to Take that Ride with Me?
Jade meets John Dillinger, the infamous bank robber...
(See the end of the chapter for notes.)
“I’m John Dillinger. I rob banks.”
Jade Chan, eleven, was a little stunned at first, but then recovered, smiling.
“That’s where all these people keep their money,” he added, smirking.
Jade replied, “Why’d you tell me that? You could’ve made up a story.”
“I’m not going to lie to you,” he purred.
“That’s kind of a serious thing to tell someone, especially a girl my age,” Jade remarked.
“I know you,” he purred in reply. His dark chocolate eyes, it seemed, were enchanting her, putting her under some kind of spell.
Namely, his spell.
Nice feedback is appreciated very much. :)
Chapter 2: Meeting Captain Jack Sparrow
Jade meets Captain Jack Sparrow...
In this chapter, Jade finds herself in the Black Pearl...
Jade opened her eyes as she looked around. She was in the cabin of a pirate ship - namely, the Black Pearl. She tried to push herself up using her hands, but soon found, much to her horror, that her wrists had been tied with rope to the headboard. Worse yet, she sensed something was about to happen - something bad.
"I see you are awake, luv."
Jade's body froze as she recognized the familiar voice. It was Captain Jack Sparrow!
He smiled when she addressed him as such, and replied,
"Such politeness. I like that trait, and in a fine young lady such as yourself, too."
Jade smiled to herself. Apparently, Jack not only knew what she said, but also what she didn't say as well. Exactly how she had figured that out, she wasn't sure.
