Pirates of the Caribbean Jade's Story book 2

By Prettyangel18

Adventure / Romance

Chapter 1

Prologue

No one's POV

A young woman with long brown hair that was being blown softly by the wind and bright green eyes was leaning on a rail of a ship looking out into the vast sea in front of her. She wore a puffy-sleeved white shirt that was tucked into the dark brown pants that she wore. She had a white and red sash, which looked as though it had been dragged through the dirt, tied around her waist that held her pistol. Underneath the sash that she wore was a black belt that held her sword. She wore black boots that had the bottom of her pants tucked inside.

Tied around the woman's right upper arm was a red bandana. Her head was perched on the palm of her right hand and her elbow rested on the railing.

She let out a sigh as she began to stand up tall and stretch her aching limbs. "Mrs. Sparrow, it seems your daughter is waiting for her mum to tell her tha' story you keep promising her to tell," said a voice from behind her.

The woman smiled as she turned and looked at the man in front of her. He had blue eyes with black hair and white facial hair. He wore a white shirt with a blue vest over top of it and tan color pants with black boots. "Aye, I seem to be forgetting me promise to me dear little girl. Thank you for reminding me, Mr. Gibbs," the woman said as she turned to leave the deck, but was suddenly stopped when Mr. Gibbs called out to her. "Jack seems to be acting a bit strange lately, Jade. Any idea on what seems to be vexing our dear captain?" he asked. Jade shook her head as she turned sad eyes toward him. "I'm sorry, Gibbs," she replied, "I don't know what is wrong with him." With that being said Jade Sparrow disappeared down the stairs that led away from the deck of the fastest ship in the Caribbean... The Black Pearl.

Chapter 1

Jade's POV

It's been three years since the last time I seen Elizabeth, William, and the beaches of Port Royal, and out of those three years it's been only two years since Jack and I got married and one year since we had our first child, which turned out to be a beautiful baby girl.

Jack really loves her to the point he spends most of his time with her teaching her how to be a pirate, although I told him is not to give her any rum until she is a certain age. Our little girl's name is Alyssa Jane Sparrow she is everything to us and will be our only child we have for a while.

As for my sister Autumn, yes she is still with us. She helps me with day to day chores like cooking for the sailors and cleaning the galley.

Jack still means the world to me and I love him dearly, but lately he has been acting very peculiar. He is barely at the helm and he seems to be avoiding everyone, which means that Master Gibbs is stuck with everything until Jack is back to his normal self.

I looked around the Black Pearl from where I stood on the deck leaning against the railing. 'As a matter of fact where is Autumn and Master Gibbs?' I thought as I looked around. I couldn't see where Autumn was so I assumed she was either down below in the galley or up in the crow's nest. My eyes landed on Master Gibbs and notice my little girl standing beside him. "Who are you looking for my dearest sister?" came a voice from behind me as I jumped. 'So Autumn wasn't in either of those places after all,' I thought as I turned and looked at my sister. She had curly strawberry blond hair that fell down to her shoulders, and was dress in girlish pirate clothes

"Hasn't anyone told you that you shouldn't sneak up on someone?" I grumbled. "No ones to me that, and if they've mentioned it I probably didn't hear them or wasn't really paying attention to them." She replied as a mischievous smirk appeared on her face. "So tell me something dearest sister. Why are ye so jumpy lately, hm?" she asked as she cocked her head to the side. I sighed, "Jack's been acting a bit peculiar lately." "A bit," Autumn rolled her eyes, "try 'very peculiar' because that would sum it all up pretty well. Don't you think, Jade?" I nodded, "Yes, you're right he's been acting very peculiar lately... I don't like it at all because it makes me feel very... jumpy."

I walked toward the stairs that led to the helm and Autumn followed. "Have you two talked lately?" she asked. "Autumn, how am I supposed to talk to a man who makes it a point to avoid me at all cost?" I answered her with yet another question. "You got a point there," she sighed as we came to stand beside Gibbs. Gibbs was not only giving orders to the helmsman, Mr. Cotton, but he was also telling Alyssa tales of the grand adventures her father had been involved in. "It's been driving me blooming mad!" I cried. Gibbs visibly jumped at the sound of my voice, but composed himself after realizing that I wasn't yelling at him.

"Jack related worries?" Gibbs asked as he raised a bushy eyebrow. "Aye, has he talked to you?" I asked as I turned toward him. He shook his, "Sorry, Mrs. Sparrow, hasn't talk to me at all since…" I nodded as remembered the day that Jack seemed like he would turn into some kind of sea creature, and bite the poor first mates head off just for being off course by half an inch. I turned to Autumn and ordered, "You better get back to work, Auti. Don't want Jack coming out and see you on deck instead of in the crow's nest." Autumn nodded as if she had the same memory playing within her head as she grimaced and replied, "Well until the next time we get the pleasure to talk, dearest sister. Ta!" With that Autumn went down the steps and climbed up the rat lines that led to the crow's nest.

"If it's not too bold to ask-" Gibbs started to say when I interrupted him. "Just ask away, Master Gibbs," I sighed. "Is Jack alright?" he asked.

I turned to look at the elderly man and shook my head. "Honestly," I said softly, "I don't really know. He has been avoiding me like everyone else lately." Gibbs nodded and I turned to look down as I felt two tiny arms wrapping themselves around my leg only to find Alyssa smiling up at me.

Alyssa looks so much like me, but she has her father's eyes and personality. She wore her favorite outfit that was identical to her father's minus the pistol, cutlass, compass, hat, dreads, and waistcoat.

I looked back up at Gibbs and asked, "She hasn't been giving you any problems?" Gibbs shook his head, "Nah, but I have ta say, Jade. She is actin more and more like Jack each day." I smiled and nodded, "Me thinks I'm goin ta go have a talk with that husband of mine, so if you excuse me." I knelt down in front of Alyssa, and told her to stay with Gibbs while I went below to talk to her father.

I then stood up, straightened my clothes as best as I could, turned, and walked down the stairs. Before I entered the captain's cabin, Gibbs called down, "Don't come out without any answers!" I chuckled and replied, "I ain't making any promises , Master Gibbs!" With that I walked inside not know what to expect.
