At that moment, Captain Penguin burst in. "Mates, we're shovin' off! The King's business can't be delayed, an' I hear tell tha' there may be treasure involved!" he shouted, motioning to his crewmates.

Jenna just glared at the others, then went outside.  "So.  Just what are you doing for the king, and why does it involve treasure?" she asked the captain.  Privately, she had a feeling the treasure only existed in someone's immagination, for she could think of no better way to convince a load of pirates to cooperate.

"Well, well! 'Ere-'ere, mates, looks like we got a tart what got 'erself drinked up!" Penguin said looking Jenna up and down and then seeing the look on her face. "No? Well, then, mates. Nevermind. His Lordship, the good Knight Tharus has told me tha' we'll be on assignment teh' the Bonesplitter Isles to find one Captain Greenbones an' his crew. Seems like they've come to possess somethin' 'o' His Majesty's that His Majesty would like back! An' thar' be a full cut 'o' any treasure in it fer' us, mates! We're castin' off in four hours, so get yerselves good an' drunk while yeh' can!"

(OOC: This be my last post of the night.  I must sleep, cos I gots work tomorrow.)

"Bonesplitter Isles?"  Suddenly Jenna was alert.  She pulled a worn book out of her pack and leafed through it.  She found what she was looking for and held it out to the captain.  "Is this where we're going?" she asked.  The page she had turned to was a map labeled "Isla Australis Maximus."  Below that, in a different hand was written, "aka The Bonesplitter Isles".

The captain scratched his fuzzy-feathered brow.
   "Aye, lass. That'd be the spot." he said, jabbing the map with his gloved flipper, which, strangely, had fingers. "Right there."
   A pirate stepped forward out of the crew. "The, the B-B -Bonesplitter Isles, Cap'n? But they say them isles be cursed!"
   "Well, I don't care what they say, that be were we're goin' an' that be final!" replied the Captain.

If anyone were to look at Siren, they would note she was very beautiful. And indeed, Siren was the sort of girl that stole men's heart. She had curly, auburn colored hair that stopped just at her shoulders and almond -shaped dark green eyes. Her skin was fair and clear, a task which seemed fairly difficult considering the time she spent out in the sun. Siren was short, standing no more than 5'2.

Yes, she was just the typical beautiful thief. On this particular day, she was growing bored with just pickpocketing and wanted something that make her rich enough to just settle down and raise a family. She just so happened to wander near the harbor. And as Siren had pretty good hearing, she heard the words "treasure," "ship," and "King." Immediately, her curiousity got the better of her.

She watched what appeared to be a... penguin!? and a young lady walk towards a ship, chatting about their destination. After they boarded the ship, Siren came up with a plan. It wasn't a great plan, but the worst they could do was kill her.

Siren walked onto the ship, smiling sweetly as some of the crew stopped to stare at her. "Hello! I overheard you lot speaking of sailing off to find some treasure. Who might the Captain of this here ship be? My magic can detect treasure anywhere!" She noticed some of the skeptical looks and quickly added, "And I'm a great cook!"

Jacks jaw dropped at the sight of the pritty girl. Jack walked tword her puting on his best smile and puffed out his chest. "Well lass we can't just be a takin' anyone who comes aboard the ship asking for a ride savvy?" "captain whatay make o this? should we through her in the brigg for a while just for fun or get out tah sea and make her walk dah plank?!"

Jenna looked at the newcomer.  Something didn't add up.  Normal women did not just walk up to a ship full of strange men and ask to come along for the ride.  Jenna herself was there because it was the lesser of two evils: either hang out with the pirates or get her neck stretched for an unknown crime.  Without really knowing why, she tucked the book back into her satchel.  The map wasn't the only thing in there, and some of the other things were not to become public knowledge.

"Oh, aye! I see 'ow it is! Yeh' can't have yer' way with 'er, so you wanna' put 'er overboard, is 'at how it is, Jack? Hah!" said Captain Penguin, and turned to Siren. "I be the Cap'n around here, lass. I'd let yeh' come wiv' us, but 'tis bad luck to bring a woman aboard a ship, yeh' savvy?" he said, ingnoring the fact that they already had Jenna aboard.

"Wait a minute!" Siren called out, placing her hands on hips. "You already have a woman onboard!"

To prove her point, she pointed at the lady who stood watching her. "I can't believe it! Bad luck? Hah! Ever heard of Captain Greenbones? I used to be a part of the crew. My dear mother didn't approve, but even still, I sailed with him."

Siren sighed wistfully. "The ocean is a mighty force to be reckon with. One minute calm and loving, the next... she's angry and vengeful, especially when attempting to learn her secrets." Siren laughed, a delightful sound, "I was his cook, you know. But then, old Greenbones and me, got into an arguement. I left and he disappeared! My poor Captain... he was a good man. Like a father to me!"

"Please, just let me sail once more. I miss the ocean." Siren stared at the other lady and frowned. "And if she's going, so am I!"

"So, yeh' were cook fer' the famous Cap'n Greenbones, eh?" said Captain Penguin, hopping akwardly and grabbing onto a swinging rigging, which he rode to the dock, next to Siren. "Right yeh' are, lass, we do 'ave a woman aboard. But havin' yeh' too would be...Uh...Erm..." The penguin furrowed his brow and counted fingers for a minute or so. "...Uh...Three times the bad luck! Yarr!"

"Captain, wasn't the fellow you're supposed to be finding named Greenbones?" Jenna asked quietly.  "Might prove useful.  Might prove a problem, too.  But she doesn't strike me as the sort of person who will take no for an answer."

Siren smiled delightfully. "My name's Siren! Siren Silva." She looked around the ship. It wasn't too shabby. "Thanks for letting me come. I promise you won't regret it!"

She turned to Jack and winked, and then turned back to the Captain, rocking back and forth on heels. "So, you're looking for my Captain. He was headed to Bonesplitter Isles..." Siren trailed off and her face turned white. "Oh."

She smiled, turning to the lady. "I'm sure we'll be great friends. I bet this is going to be a great adventure."

"I'll be wanting some grog," Siren said, more to herself than anyone else. "But in the meantime, I'm going to look over the supplies and make a menu. If it's okay with the Captain."

Siren looked at the Captain and gave him the sweetest smile she could muster up. She looked as innocent as a newborn baby.
