Captain Bowen's Journal Chapter 1
A calm wind blew across her face, as tear rolled down her cheek. Jossa Bowen stood on the hill and watched her father's ship sail in the distance.
“Will I see my father again?” She asked herself.
Jossa placed her hand on the hilt of her cutlass ready to draw. She had heard someone walk up behind her. The stranger took three more steps. Jossa pulled out her sword and pointed it at the stranger. The stranger was her friend, Dianna. Dianna quickly took a step back, to avoid Jossa's cutlass.
“ You're awfully jumpy today! What's the matter? Dianna asked. She looked a bit concerned.
“I didn't know it was you. I thought it was someone else. Jossa replied as she lowered her cutlass.“Why did you sneak up on me, without letting me know, it was you?”
Dianna shrugged and replied,” Sorry I didn't mean to scare you. I'll make it up to you. I will buy you a drink at the tavern.”
Jossa put her cutlass back in it's sheath and said “ Oh right. Lets go.”
Jossa and Dianna began to walk towards the village. It looked very peaceful, but the peace there wouldn't last long. BANG! BANG! Gun shots exploded in the air. Jossa and Dianna pulled out their cutlasses and ran towards the village. They saw chaos. Men were fighting each other. Guns were fired. Cutlasses were crossed. The two friends saw fourteen men on the ground dead from the fight. Some of them had been pierced by a cutlass and others had been shot by pistols. Jossa and Dianna charged into the fight. They cut down the foes that was in their path . During the heat of the fight, Dianna noticed one man escape. With him he carried a leather book. Dianna fought her way over to where Jossa was. By now the two girls were fighting back to back.
“ Jossa!” Dianna shouted.
“What is it!” Jossa yelled back.
“That man over there near the bakery is running away from the battle!” Shouted Dianna as she parried a blow and then lunged at her opponent.
“So? What does that have to do with me?” Jossa asked.
“Nothing. It's just that he seemed a bit suspicious carrying that book around with him.” replied Dianna.
“Well, I guess we could check it out, but first we have to make our way towards the bakery.” Jossa shouted back.
