A woman with long brown hair was pacing back and forth in front of her best friend's bedroom window. She wrung hear hands nervously as her friend watched her closely from where she sat on her bed with an amused expression on her face.
"Jade you need to stop pacing or you will burn a track in the floor," the girl's friend giggled. Jade stopped and turn to her best friend, whom she had known since she could remember. Her friend was none other than the Governor of Port Royal's daughter, Elizabeth Swann. Elizabeth was a petite woman with long light brown hair and hazel eyes. She carried herself with an air of grace, and her personality was one that would not allow her to take any sort of verbal rubbish from anyone.
Jade blushed slightly as her bright green eyes lifted to meet the hazel gaze of her friends. "Sorry, Liz, I am just so nervous about tomorrow...I've never been to a ceremony like this before," Jade expressed as she sat down on the bed next to Elizabeth as they waited for Jade's parents to send for her. "Do not worry. It is not all that exciting. All you do is watch a man twirl a sword to try an impress the governor, and try to convince my father that he made the right choice," Elizabeth smiled. "One would think that he already has convince your father that he made the right choice... I mean it was by his choice that Norrington is becoming a Commodore," Jade grumbled as Elizabeth nodded while laughing. After Elizabeth calmed down, the women started into a constant chatter about the normal things.
When it was time for Jade to leave the two women walked down to meet her parents in the foyer. The women said their good-byes as Jade and her parents left in their carriage. She look out the window as they made their to their house. "Did you and Elizabeth talk about much?" Jade's mother asked. "Same thing we been talking about," Jade smiled sweetly.
When they got home Jade went to my room,changed into her nightgown, walked over and crawled into her bed. As sleep over took the woman she could hear one of the maids walk in.
