“Captain! There is something you should see,” Skinner said, his eyes wide. Curious, Captain Hook stepped out of his captain’s quarters and followed Skinner to the main deck. Near the edge of the ship was an infant. She stared up at him and smiled. Then noticed the note by the little girl. It read: "Hook, here is your punishment for not listening to me when I tried to tell you about the pregnancy. Her name is Aquamerine and is a mermaid and siren. Be careful around liquids with her, one drop will cause her to grow a tailfin. With love, Serina “. ‘She was pregnant?” Hook couldn’t get his head around it. He looked at the little girl, who had turned out to be his. The infant looked up at her father and giggled. “Smee, bring her to my cabin,”…show more content…
He’s been in the Captain’s Quarters since you left, making quite the ruckus,” Smee told me as I started drying myself off. Being a mermaid, I had the ability to control water, and I magically moved the water off my body and back into the sea. My tail separated into my legs, my top and pants reappeared and I stood up. “I figured as much. I’ll go talk to him and hopefully calm him down from his temper tantrum,” I replied. I headed to my father’s cabin and entered without knocking. “Aqua, did you reconsider? Are you going to help me?” Dad didn’t look at me. “Only if you tell me why you want Pan dead so bad.” “Again? I’ve been telling you why since you were a tiny tot. It is because he is cocky, he won’t grow up and thus is not affected by time, which is unnatural, and he doesn’t fear me,” Dad recited for the millionth time. “I don’t fear you. Do you want to kill me?” I asked. “Of course not, you are my flesh and blood. His lack of fear for me caused him to be able to take my hand and feed it to Tick-Tock Croc. You didn’t do that, you weren’t conceived yet,” He answered, shaking his hook in my face. “The very hook you use to punish me, you mean?” I asked, coyly. “Yes, that hook. I wouldn’t use the hook if I didn’t have it.” “Fine, I’ll help you,” I…show more content…
He's being taken to the Jolly Roger. I barely managed to get away," I lied, out of breath. All the boys grabbed their weapons and headed to the beach where Tinkerbell sprinkled pixie dust over them. They flew to the ship, but I got there first. I swam as fast as possible and torpedoed on the ship. I landed with a loud thud on the main deck where Peter was tied up against the mast. I changed back and walked up to him and whispered in his ear, "I'm sorry about this. The lost boys are on their way." I pulled away and he looked at me with disgust and hatred. "What did you say to him?" Smee asked. "I told him dad is going to make the last hours of his life miserable," I lied. I didn't like lying to Smee, but I had grown fond of Peter and had realized dad's reasons for wanting him dead weren't good enough for Pan to die. A few moments later the boys fired arrows at crew members, wounding them so they couldn't fight, and they hit me in my shoulder. I crumpled down in pain. When the boys ran out of arrows, they landed on the deck. "Let Peter go," Slightly said. "Why would we do that?" Dad had come out of his cabin at the sound of the arrows flying. None of the boys had an answer. Dad pulled out his sword and pointed it at the boys. The boys pulled out their daggers and began swinging. With the pirates distracted, Nibs, the boy in the bunny costume, was able to release Peter. "Boys, let's go home," Peter called. "What about Aqua?" Cubby asked. "She
