My vision was blurry, i felt a sting on my right shoulder, as i turned my head i saw a harpoon pierced through it. I could barely breathe. Without any power in me my head flipped over and i saw a barrel of gunpowder right next to me, I panicked, the fire was engulfing the shipwreck. With the harpoon pinning me down i was helpless, I was doomed, it was my time to leave the world of consciousness. Slowly my eyes shutting down I saw figures glinting in the fire..
3 Days later
My eyes began to open as sun shafts reached my face through the crosshatch. I were in a ships hold. It smelled like drunken rats had been here, other bunks were empty. “Where’s the rum gone?!” echoed from deck. “Go get me rum you tiny scavenger dogs!” Wooden ceiling started to rumble, as the hatch opened in came three dwarfs, rather odd sight on a ship. Searching rum in hurry they noticed that i was awake. “The Wrecked has awaken, captain!” Dwarf yelled. “What, who? Bring me the rum maggots!!” Captain cursed. “Wha-where am I” i confusedly asked. “You’re on the Black Pearl, young sir.” I hardly got my sentence finished as foot steps rumbled through the deck closing on the hatch. A swaying figure with hat and long dreadlocks walked towards me in the shadow of sun coming outside the hold. “Did you found the rum dogs!?” Captain quothed. “Ay, here captain Sparrow” one of the dwarfs mongrelled. “Oi mate, back from the dead, ay?” Captain blurted. “I guess, although I bet it smells better in Davy Jones locker. What happened to me, i-i can’t remember anything” “Listen mate, we found you from a shipwreck when we were scavenging the Nevermore coast, seems that there were hell of a fight. Something supernatural took place there, you were the only survivor we found” Sparrow told. “Where are we heading?” I asked” “TORTUGA!!” he yelled and the crew started to laugh. “Now, GET BACK TO WORK MAGGOTS!” captain screamed, stopping the dwarven laugh.
The next day I woke up sweaty, I had dreams of this girl, the most beautiful I had ever seen, ever. She was perfect. Her goldenwhite hair waved by Atlantic winds, the Caribbean sun touching her perfect skin making it glow. Just as she were an angel.. Suddenly a high pitch skreek hurted my ears, a dragon soared towards our ship.. and I woke up. It was just a dream..
We were anchored to Port Tortuga. Captain and crew were leaving the ship. I chose to follow them, although I still were wounded and weak. I trailed Captain Sparrow to “Inn Bottoms Up” to find a free corner table for me to recover in peace. There I sat following Jacks’ doings. He were an odd captain, so to say, but below the surface there were something good in him. As the day turned dark I found my self dreaming again it was so lucid the girl felt real.. “BAMM” I woke up to see a bearded old man joining my table. “You dreamin’ boy?” He asked. “Not your business, old man.” I countered. “What’s your name, boe?” “I- I can’t remember..” I stuttered. “Ha ha ha ha, so young but still can’t remember.” he laughed. “It’s not funny at all. I can’t really remember anything, where do I belong, what I did, who I loved. I just can’t..” “Have you ever heard of the Rose of Remembarance?” the old man whispered. “No, what is it?” I asked him. “This flower, has magical powers and it can be used especially for returning your memory, you will remember everything after drinking the potion made of it.” he told. “Really, where can I found one?” I kept asking. “No one have seen them in a long long time but they usually grow in volcanic ground, I would check the Mt. Dragonis. “Dragonis..” I thought in my head, I had seen a dragon in my dream..
Next day I woke up in shoft, warm bed. I had been offered a bunk for last night because I still were in so bad shape. Now I was feeling much better. Time to get my memory back no matter what.
“Jack, you need to get me to Mt.Dragonis.” I suggested. “What do I get” Jack asked. “Gold, alot of gold” i had to lie. “I saw that in my dream, I stashed gold to Mt.Dragonis” “Reaaallyyeeh, why would I believe you!?” Jack curiously asked? I picked a shiny gold coin from my pocket, which blinded Jack when the Sun reflected from it. I didn’t know where from this gold coin were.. “Lets go then, shall we” Jack continued with his charismatic way of speak. “AHOY MAGGOTS! Our new heading is Mt.Dragonis!” yelling to dwarves on the deck while helding his hand around my shoulder. He offered me some rum and I took a sip.
Sailing through the Caribbean ocean I started to wonder, I love the sea, it’s my home, and always will be.. The Mt.Dragonis was up ahead, spouting steam from the top, the island where it stood was enormous, trees, rocks, even a river running through fluting caused by the lava. I had never seen quite anything like this. I think none of us, Jack or dwarves have. As we anchored to the nearest shore we could see the vapour had abaft.
Behind the mist, it was beautiful. Green rainforest, full of wildlife, we were mesmerized about the colors as we ventured through the bushes and sky-reaching trees. “Look” one of the dwarves said. The ground around the Mt.Dragonis were desolated, everything was burned for miles from the mountain. But the volcano haven’t erupted in our lifetime. Dwarves started to mumble in hysteria as they realized what or who dwells there. “It’s him!” one of the dwarves cried to Jack. “Who is who, and stop CRYING you slimy dogs!” “Th-th-the dragon lives in that mountain!” Dwarf still cried. “Pssht, there’s no dragons” Jack laughs. “Don’t you worry my brave friends!” and we kept on going through the confligirated grounds.
Finally after hours and hours of endless walking on the blazing ashes we reached the mountain, it formed from shiny black rock. The mountain didn’t look really like a volcano, it was more a rock with high walls reaching the limitless sky. Still it had a volcano hole. We started to climb. It took days, and it got cold. The snow reached the top of the mountain because of the height. Climbing wasn’t any problem to me, it was so natural for me, I found my self so agile, the more encounters came the better I excelled.
“Waaaoow” were echoing as we all saw with our very eyes the tall doorway. It was shimmering blue, vaporing because it was so cold outside. The door was warm, we rushed towards it to gather warmth. You can imagine twelve dwarves and us two packed towards this door. As we were pressed to it, it creeked. The door opened, vapor streaming through the cracks we walked in, everyone could feel the fear in all of us, except Jack of course.. “Where’s the gold?” he asked. “Down there” I had to guess something.. We walked in, there were huge staircase made of rock and on the left there were a balcony from where a bright glinting came. We headed over to the balcony, below us were an enormous hall of riches. Full of gold, jewelry, everything a man can dream of. We were astonished by the view. Jack almost shed a tear..
We all started to rush down the stairs, gold in our minds, all ours. Many stairs behind I saw a dungeon where from a glimpse of light emitted to my eyes. I felt something, like the dungeon was dragging me.. Dwarves and Jack had continued their way down. I were stunned, walking towards the dungeon, as time felt disappearing I saw that hair through the dungeon bars, that golden blonde, which I had seen in my dreams. I-I couldn’t believe my eyes.. I clogged my head on the bars, I didn’t even notice it as I were so mesmerized. It echoed through the barracks. She turned around, her brown eyes, staring at me, around, her tanned skin glowing, in the light of the lava that ran through the walls of the dungeon. I couldn’t stop staring at her lips, at her beautiness. “EDWARD, EDWARD, how did you find me!?” she yelled. I checked over my back, there were noone. “Edward? who is Edward” I asked. “My love, stop joking around and get me out of here, we have to get out before he comes!” she yelled. I were confused, I still didn’t remember.. “WHATCHOUT EDDWARD” she screamed as, big and mighty figure walked towards me. “Finally you have came, I’ve been waiting for you” the echoing sound said behind my back. The dungeon bars opened suddenly and after I had turned to see him, he hit me. I flew until I hit the wall in the dungeon, the wall were full of roses. “Roses..” I said curiously and passed out. The leafs of the roses fell on my face.. first I saw the bearded old man, telling me about the Rose of Remembarance. Then everything came back, who I was, what happened, why I lost my memory..
I’m Edward Kenway, the infamous pirate, the leader of the Assassins. We were attacked by a dragon while sailing to Port Royal, we had a precious cargo. A item of the ancient gods. Which were now on the hands of the most evil creation of all, Shyvana, the princess of the dragons. She could control a mind of a dragon, fortunately only one, still exists. This item she got, was to bring all of the lost dragons back to life, back under her command. She didn’t know one, thing. I am the only one who can activate it. Altair, my ancestor were the first guardian of the talisman. For many thousand years, the dragonborns haven’t ruled. Now, I have ruined it all..
“Edward, Edward, thank god, you’re okay” Olivia said. “Olivia!” I cried. “I remember everything now..” Olivia is my wife. She’s the princess of the Caribbean, my all.. I gave her a loong kiss..
“Yhellow there birdies” I heard Jacks’ voice. “JACK JACK, get us out of here” he got the bars open. “Meet my wife, Olivia” I said. “Gratulations, we have to go NOW!” Jack suggested. “Everything ok?!” I asked. “Yea everything’s fine, we woke the dragon and a very, spicy lady”.. he said. ” Master, master” one of the dwarves came down the stairs, “the door is gone!” dwarf yelled. “WHAT, how can a DOOR be gone?” Jack furiously asked. “I don’t know, the door is gone.” Dwarf added. “Hurry we must leave, I know another way, through the Hall of Kings” Olivia said. So we hurried down the stairs to the hall of riches.
Running for our lives we could hear the air shredding behind us. We stopped and turned. A massive dragon stood there beside a furious looking woman, her hair, were engulfing with blue flames. Shyvana the last Dragonborn. “Eeedwaard” She screamed, the halls echoed and fear descented upon us. “You will never have your plans come true, you lizzard!” I yelled back to her. “No..?” she started to turn in to her real form, which she can do only once in a millenium. She turned in to a dragon. “Now you will die!” her voice shattered the halls. She soared towards us. “Run, you fools!” I shouted to my fellowship. “No Edward” I can’t leave you again, Olivia cried. “You must go now, just go..” They started to ran towards the second hall. “After them!” Shyvana yelled to the other dragon. Think, think, Edward.. I saw a broken blade laying on the bed of gold. I got nothing else.. I ran, she were coming towards me, her neck turning red, like fire, she took a breath and flame came out of her mouth. I had to dodge her, I still couldn’t reach the blade. I tricked her, and got the blade on my hand, it had some kind of elven writing on it. Blue vains started to form from the handle, the blade started to repair itself. It wasn’t broken anymore.. “So it is true, you really are the offspring of Altair.” I felt the power of Eden in my arms while I held the blade. I rushed towards her, dodging her tail, her fireballs. I jumped and slashed and smashed, I hurted her. It was the end of her time.. She collapsed on the piles of gold. Returned to her human form.. Injured, she dragged herself towards me, grabbed my leg and said “If I won’t survive, neither will you, or your pity wife.” She grabbed a knife and sliced her chest open took out her blue glinting hearth and stabbed the knife through it. A dragons hearth is the mountains hearth.
Everything started to rumble as I still watched the evil to leave our world, exhausted, I undestood the mountain is coming down. Again trapped, like I had a spear through my shoulder and barrels of gunpowder just an inch away from fire.. Now it really was my time to go.. I just wanted to see Olivia once again.. Like the sky would come down, the rock started to collapse. I just stood there, helpless.. Suddenly I hear wings flapping, I tightened grasp of my blade. Now the another dragon soared towards me “Oh come on, didn’t you get enough..” She lowered her head still flying, when I saw that hair once again.. Riding the dragon, Olivia had came back. I were too exhausted, crashing on the ground I just couldn’t stay awake anymore last glimpse I saw was that dragon snatching me up.
