"No. I want know what you are. Telling me that you're just a fae would be as useless as me asking a pirate who they are with an answer like 'human'. Everybody on this island is either a criminal, exile, fugitive, or a murderer, or all of those. I want to know if you're one of those unseelied that I've heard about. There's still some out there, I know, I've killed some." Aja hissed at his words. " UnSeelie." She spat at the ground at her left. " I am a solitary Fae, I belong to no court, especially not the Anansi-forsaken UnSeelie." She hissed. "Again, All of this you could have just asked. If you know so much about Fae, you would have known that we can not lie, and all you needed to do was ask the simple question." She said bitterly as she decided he was going to be an issue. She knew the girl was important, and he was important to the girl, so she decided to stay her hand, despite how she wanted to drag it across his cheek for such impudence.

Sebastian


Sebastian watched the scene play out. Even with Damien interrupting before fleeing the stressful situation, nobody payed attention. "Stop this, you will both be staying on my ship and we don't even tolerate such behavior between our men. Dorian, it's rude to call people here those things even if they are true, and Aja, step outside with Damien if you need to. There's simple answers. We can all talk later tonight when we all have dinner together, in a friendly way. Otherwise, I will have to ask those who won't comply to stay on land," Sebastian says with a final tone. He rarely went into a mode where he was only a captain, but situations like these were those times.

Sebastian faced Theo and Alexandrine. "We have more specific rules about raids than what you mentioned when I showed up, ask Kato when you see him or just ask me at dinner, but there is specific rules about who you raid and who you can or should injure," Sebastian says, not saying kill as he didn't like the word. Dorian had called people on Nassau murderers, exiled, criminal, and fugitives, it was all true. He didn't like it, didn't have to, but it was true.

Sebastian took a deep breath, "Just, don't kill each other. Kalila, when you're ready, I think Damien is still wanting to take you shopping," Sebastian says, leaving the tavern. He hadn't realized it had gone nearly silent at his outburst. Didn't really care though. Sebastian walked to where he knew Damien would be, his brother's food already set aside.

"They being demons to each other?" Damien asks. Sebastian nods, "Yep," Damien nods slightly as Sebastian sits next to him. Sebastian bumps his brother. Damien doesn't respond. Sebastian does it again and it makes Damien crack a smile. "What?" Damien asks. Sebastian looks at him as if he should know. "You and Kalila?" Sebastian asks and Damien looks down. "Are you blushing?" Sebastian demands and bumps into his brother again who pushes him back. "I don't know... She says she wants me to go to sleep with her tonight," Damien explains. Sebastian stares at him, openly gawking. "What?" He whispers. Damien realizes what it sounded like and shook his head rapidly. "I meant that she was going to talk to me through the dreams when I went to sleep near her I guess," Damien explained with a nod. Sebastian nodded, understanding. The two sat there, heads against the wall, eyes closed. The only difference was that they were dressed different;y. "I was about to say, how did you get that far so fast," Sebastian says easily. Damien elbows him again and the two laugh before resuming the peaceful position that relaxed them.

Theo listened to the conversatin between the UnSeelie and the bandaged man. There was definitely tension there. He was not surprised. He had rarely ran into a fae who held no allegiance to a "court" of UnSeelie. Thus, it was inevitable that solitary fae would gain a reputation as outlaws given that the most unsavory of their kind often had no choice but to flee their home court. To tell the truth, he was not particularly wary of them anymore than he was of any other powerful magic user. He was an exile too.

"We have more specific rules about raids than what you mentioned when I showed up, ask Kato when you see him or just ask me at dinner, but there is specific rules about who you raid and who you can or should injure," Sebastian said. Theo grinned at him.

"I suspected as much. Your reputation precedes you, after all and it is rare that I sail under a captain without honor, however miniscule that honor may be. It seems the rumors about you two are correct. It is not often I run into a pirate captain without some nefarious designs on someone such as that goddess-touched girl, Kalila."

Theo continued to drink beside Alexandrine. He grinned at her, "It is a rare crew we've joined. A blushing pirate? Remarkable."

"Stop this, you will both be staying on my ship and we don't even tolerate such behavior between our men. Dorian, it's rude to call people here those things even if they are true, and Aja, step outside with Damien if you need to. There's simple answers. We can all talk later tonight when we all have dinner together, in a friendly way. Otherwise, I will have to ask those who won't comply to stay on land," Sebastian said and Kailia watched. She wondered idly if Damien had that sort of power, he was captain, but was he the leader his brother was.
She shook the thought away, she knew that would be a question her father would ask her...if he didn't try to bludgeon Damien to death.

Aja hissed and turning away. " I am here for the girl, just as it seems we all are." She said looking around the montely crew before her. Kalila blushed then, feeling the weight of her birthright on her shoulders now. It made her a little ansty, so she covered her arms with her hands, to hid the chills. Her eyes fell on to the woman and the man at the bar, new to the crew apparently. They both were cursed, whether each of them knew it about the other or not. Kalila knew nothing about the man but she'd seen the woman in her visions before. She had a great rage in her, all because of that man, that creature that caused the great unbalance in the world, the unbalance that forced Kalila out of the safety of her home in Jeddah and into the land of the thieves.

" Kalila, when you're ready, I think Damien is still wanting to take you shopping,"

To that, Kalila smiled, rose from her seat and left without a single thought to Dorian. She wanted to go shopping, she'd heard girls in the palace talking about it, and she thought it would be fun. She was never able to just walk about the town in Jeddah, it was dangerous for others. She made her way to Damien, seeing him speaking with Sebastian, she didn't hear any of the conversation as she walked up. She waved awkwardly before sitting beside him and scribbling on her writing pad.
"I'm ready to go shopping, with you"


"We have more specific rules about raids than what you mentioned when I showed up, ask Kato when you see him or just ask me at dinner, but there is specific rules about who you raid and who you can or should injure," Sebastian had said and to that Alexandrine had to snicker. Injure? What kind of pirates were these?
Perhaps he had something to do with the presence of the girl, she certainly hoped that was it, or else, they'd be in for a rude awakening when it came time for a raid.

"I suspected as much. Your reputation precedes you, after all and it is rare that I sail under a captain without honor, however minuscule that honor may be. It seems the rumors about you two are correct. It is not often I run into a pirate captain without some nefarious designs on someone such as that goddess-touched girl, Kalila."

Theo had commented and Alexandrine looked at the girl. She knew she was 'touched' as Theo had put it but she hadn't considered how much of a handicap she could be, sure she could protect herself but what if she fell into a spell like before, during the raid? That would be bad. "It is a rare crew we've joined. A blushing pirate? Remarkable."

That was the other thing, The girl may be innocent-minded enough to miss Damien clear interest in her but the adults were not. That could be a problem too, this was very risky, atleast for her. What if they do find Bluebeard..with the girl, the love struck co captain, a shark man, a fae and whatever the hell Dorian was and two cursed.

"Rare indeed."

Damien


Damien looks up at Kalila as she comes over, the empty tray of food beside him. He didn't want be rude, he didn't want to get up and leave the safety of his alley. He was still slightly freaked out about te money situation. He pulled his bag of money out as he stood. He had about money to buy Kalila one really nice dress, or two not so nice ones. He sighed inwardly. They had really little money, like all the money that was left was what Sebastian had kept for his own personal use. if it came down to it, he would use it for the crew, but Damien didn't want his brother to have to spend his own pay to support their crew when it had been his fault that they were nearly out what with his spending habits and all.

Damien smiled at Kalila. "Come on then, let's go get you that lovely dress you want," He says as he offers his arm. He is careful to keep their skin from touching, not wanting to be the cause of an episode. He pulled her through the streets to the nicest dress shop in town. He didn't share how he knew it was the best, but just led her there. He had once been with a girl that had worked there and told him about every other shop in town. This one was for the really rich pirate lords' children, wives, or mistresses.

As Damien led her inside, they were greeted by a woman who looked maybe twice Damien's age. "Sebastian or Damien?" She asked until she saw Kalila. "How nice it is to see you Damien. A dress for you or the lady?" She asked with a smile. Damien just nodded to Kalila, smiling back. This lady had seen him before with a few other girls, ones that had been sent to get a dress and had met up with him on the way. He liked watching the shows they put on, displaying the dresses.

"A nice one that would pass as a noble's dress," He says as he sets the bag of money on the counter. The woman nods, not glancing at the money until she had measured Kalila with her skilled seamstress eyes. Most dresses here were corseted so they would fit exactly, if not, pretty well since they were adjustable.

The lady grabbed a few dresses and led Kalila back to a room to change into dresses. The first one she put on the lady immediately moved to take it off, shaking her head no. When she put on a few more dresses, each one came off almost immediately. Finally, a dress she put on stayed on. "It looks amazing," She whispers as she stares at Kalila in a dirty and slightly cracked mirror.

Damien sat waiting, fiddling with some lace on a nearby dress. Lace always held his interest for whatever reason, the intricacy of the patterns. Lace was expensive considering it was all done by hand. He looked at the other dresses, the colors popping out at him. He wanted to go ahead and leave tonight for the town, but he knew that if anything went wrong whatsoever, there'd be no point in having gone as they wouldn't get anything.

Damien looked up as he saw a rustle. When he spotted Kalila, he stared, outright and openly. "Wow," he whispers as he looks up at her. He smiles slightly. "You certainly do look like a noble woman," He comments, "And certainly the most beautiful," he whispers softly so she would have probably barely heard it. The woman comes out with a smile looking at Damien's face. "His favorite color," She whispers to Kalila.

#, as written by Sonata
It was strange how the bandage man joined them as though everyone and everything were drawn to them in the tavern. When the man began sharpening his kukri, he turned his attention back to the rest of the group not noticing at first the discomfort the man’s habits brought to his woman. Aja began coughing and when she fled from the table in a fit, the shark followed her out of concern.

“Are ye o’ll right, love?” he questioned.

Hopefully, she hadn’t contracted a plague.

Please, do you have to sharpen your blade at the table, m’on emie?

Mako turned toward the one Aja was talking to. Dorian; why was she mad at him? He eyed how he seemed to be not just sharpening his weapon but purposefully flicking fragments at the fae. With a growl, the giant stepped in the path of the flakes and Kalila had already stopped the man before Mako felt he’d have to—friend or not.

The Mercos didn’t quite understand the argument between Aja and Dorian, but when he kept hearing the others mention “leaving the island,” he couldn’t help but feel worried about her. She said she was cursed to stay.

“Yer joinin’ their crew?” he asked. “Are ye sure ‘bout this?”

The shark crouched before the fae and took her hand in his.

“Ye won’t die?”
