Chapter Four

I awake to a clicking sound invading my sleep. Peeling my eyelids open I see Jack reaching through the bars of the cell. Upon closer inspection I see Jack had shaped the bone from last night and is trying to use it to open the cell.

“Please.” He whispers. The door above the stairs opens and Jack moves falling down to lay beside me on the floor. Footsteps approach the door of our cell. I sneak a peek through my closed eye to see who is there. Will Tuner stands there looking at us.

    “You, Sparrow?” He asks.

    “Aye.” Jack says lifting his head.

    “You are familiar with that ship. The Black Pearl?” Will continues. I lift myself I rest on my forearms.

    “I’ve heard of it.” Jack says as though it’s of little importance to him laying his head back down.

    “Where does it make berth?” Will asks another question.

    “Where does it make berth?” Jack lifts his head his voice full of amusement. “Have you not heard the stories?” Will remains silent. Jack rests his head on the floor again. “Captain Barbossa and his crew of miscreants sail from the dreaded Isla de Muerta. It’s an island that cannot be found, except” Jack lifts his head again for the billionth time. “by those who already know where it is.”

    “The ships real enough.” Will comments. “Therefore it’s anchorage must be a real place. Where is it!?” Will demands as I raise an eyebrow. If I’ve learned enough about Jack having sailed with him...it’s that you can’t force Jack to do anything.

    “Why ask me?” Jack asks examining his hand.

    “Because you're a pirate.” Will tells him.

    “She’s a pirate too.” Jack jerks his thumb at me. I stare at him wide eyed. “Why not ask her? Or is it that you want to turn pirate yourself. Is that it?” Will grasps the bars on the cell.

“Never.” Jack says nothing as I stare at the both of them. I lay back down as though I haven’t a care in the world. “They took Miss Swann.” Will says reluctantly.

“WHAT!” I shoot up glaring daggers at him.

“Oh, so it is that you found a girl!” Jack exclaims at the same time. “I see. Well if you’re intending to brave all, hasten to her rescue, and so win fair ladies heart...you’ll have to do it alone mate. I see no profit in it for us.” I glance at Jack.

“I can get you out of here.” Will tells him.

“How’s that? The keys run off.” Jack nods in the direction the dog ran last night.

“I helped build these cells.” Will says as I roll my eyes. Of course he did. “These are half-pin barrel hinges.” Will grabs a bench that’s not too far away. “With the right leverage and proper application of strength, the door will lift free.” Jack stares at Will before asking,

“What’s your name?”

“Will Turner.”

“That would be short for William, I imagine. Good strong name.” Jack is up to something. I can tell. “No doubt named for your father, eh?”

“Yes.” Will answers, his voice soft.

“Uh-huh.” Jack sounds in thought. Jack stands moving to the door of the cell. “Well, Mr. Turner, I’ve changed me mind. If you spring us from this cell, I swear on pain of death I shall take you to the Black Pearl and your bonny lass.” Jack sticks his hand through the cell. “Do we have an accord?” Will takes Jack’s hand.
