A quick kick to the ribs left the man writhing in pain. He drew his pistol, "How many more?" was all he said.

He drew his pistol, "How many more?" was all he said. Heavy breathing was now the only thing that could heard on deck.

Heavy breathing was now the only thing that could be heard on deck. Unfortunately, the heavy breathing was from someone behind him.

Unfortunately, the heavy breathing was from someone behind him. He spun to face the new adversary, but a sharp rap from a belaying pin across his wrist forced him to drop his weapon.

He grabbed his wrist and swore an oath in pain. An unmasked expression of surprise shown in his features as he faced his adversary.

"This is mutiny, you'll all hang!"

Their grinning expressions told him that mutiny was probably the whole point, and they didn't intend to hang for it.

The man on the deck rose and collected his knife, intending to finish what he'd started. The Lieutennant heard the steel of the blade scraping on the side of a 9 pounder as its owner stood, and he wheeled again to ward off the attack, but now multiple men were on top of him, holding him down, weapons poised though not moving - as if these men who had so savagely turned upon him and the other officers just moments ago needed him alive, if only for a few more minutes.

(yeah yeah, I know, mine's long . I cheated with all my "ands" and "buts"tongue.gif)

(yeah yeah, I know, mine's long . I cheated with all my "ands" and "buts") This is not a game, there is no cheating. You simply bent the stated rules.

Fletcher, who had been hiding behind the capstan, finally stood up, pointing his pistol at the mutineers, "This evens the odds a bit, don't it gents?"

The glint in Fletcher's eye could only be seen when the lightning flashed overhead.

Fletcher laughed, and pulled another gun from his belt, "So, Bobstay, who's outgunned by who, exactly?"

The wind tugged hard against the partially unfurled sails, lightning flashed again and the thunder rumbled more quickly after than before.
