Truth be told...life on the high seas was boring.
Nothing interested Captain Antonio Fernandez Carriedo any longer. His fleets had suffered much damage against that...he even detested to say the word, English pirate, and it seemed to be just one mission after another.
He had missed home. The warm sun, the gentle breeze, the tomato fields. Those idyllic times before he had joined his nation's Navy. His wanderlust had been more than quenched, and even though he was going home, he wasn't all too happy. He knew that in a few days, he would have to be back on the waters again.
This meaningless...drivel was insane. There seemed to be nothing to look forward to, nothing-
Followed by many crashing noises, and other strange cries and noises, it dawned on Antonio that his ship was under siege.
And the fact that his crew was extremely unprepared was like a blow right in the solar plexus for him. They carried no riches; the crew consisted mostly of lackeys who would just help around in the overseas posts.
Antonio almost watched, dumb-founded, as his galleon was being raided, but what caught him even more by surprise was when he felt a cold hilt near his throat. His assailant quickly stepped out from behind him, to face him, the dagger never leaving his throat.
A flash of their bright orbs, a swish of curls tied firmly back
was his assailant really a girl?
"Hand over all your riches." There was no doubt in his mind this was definitely a woman, even if she did try to cover up her voice by making it gruff.
Green orbs meeting [eye colour] ones, a slow smile spread across Antonio's face. "I never expected the high seas to be a suitable place for a woman, but you seem to fit in beautifully."
"S-Shut up!" She retorted, her voice noticeably higher.
Everything about her enticed Antonio, her feisty demeanour, her spunk...he cursed the moonless night for not being able to see her features better.
"Piracy shouldn't be a professionfor someone as beautiful as you, cariño."
"That's none of your business." She wasn't even trying to disguise her voice any longer a bold move.
"I will find you, you know." He leant in to whisper. He could hear her gulping, and before she could react, he quickly pressed his lips to her.
Gasping, [Name] took a step back. She quickly ordered her men to leave the ship with whatever they could gather.
How dare that Captain even...
She wouldn't deny that she enjoyed it, though.
Antonio watched his assailant, the beautiful pirate that had stolen his meagre loot as well as his heart. He would trace her down as soon as he got to port, then sail after her.
He definitely had something to look forward to, now.
