Part Summary: The threat of Blackbeard is taking a toll on Y/N and Jack. In order to stop him and protect Jack, Y/N starts to consider options she would’ve never before...
I sit on the stairs leading up to the top deck with my head in my hands. He'll come after us, Blackbeard won't stop until he has what he wants.
“Did you see Elizabeth?”
I lift my head and my eyes fall on a distressed Will. “I was immediately brought to the captain.”
“Was she on deck? Downstairs?” He rushes out.
“I didn’t see her, I'm sorry," I offer him genuinely.
“Did you even try to look for her?” He barks.
Jack appears beside him, placing a hand on his shoulder. “She was in the office, Mate.”
“We’ll find her, Will!” I try to reassure him. "I'll do everything I can to help."
“It’s been weeks!” He huffs, growing anxious.
I take his hand in mine comfortingly. “He wouldn’t hurt her.”
His eyes narrow. “How would you know?”
“I know him. Okay? It’ll be okay." I smile weakly.
Will sends me a similar expression with a brief nod. He turns to walk away and his hand slipping from mine.
Jack lingers, watching the boy walk away defeated.
I sigh, allowing my head to rest in my hands again. “I should’ve done more.”
Jack settles down next to me, bringing a hand to rub up and down my back. “You didn’t have much a choice, Love. He had you stuck.”
I huff, lifting my head to scan the deck. “I feel responsible somehow. I could've done more. I should've done more.”
Jack brings his hand to my cheek, guiding me to look at him. "Don't okay? Don’t take that on." He shakes his head. “You brought us to the Fountain of Youth. Put yourself in danger for a girl you don't even know. You’ve done more in saving Elizabeth than any of us.”
I nod faintly, still not fully convinced, but content for now. Jack wraps his arm around me, bringing me in to rest my head on his shoulder. For a moment, my eyes fall shut and I relax for the first time in days. He's a security blanket, guaranteeing to keep me safe. Then, an idea crosses my mind, a thought I wish hadn't.
My eyes flicker open and I debate whether I should voice my thought. Then, I comprehend it's for the best. “You think he’s after me, don’t you..." I whisper.
Jack tenses up around me. “It’s crossed my mind,” he confesses softly.
“But why?” I lift my head to meet his gaze, our faces inches apart.
“You’re an asset. He’s seen what you can do and wants to use it to his advantage.”
“But why now?” I question with furrowed brows. "Why not five years ago or when we met? He had every chance!" I can feel the panic starting to set in.
“Same as me he didn’t know where you’ve been hiding out the last five years. He knew that the compass would lead me to you and so all he had to do was follow." Jack caresses my cheek with gentle eyes. "I’m so sorry, Love.”
“Then I’ll just go back into hiding then!” I determine.
“No!" He pleads. "I’m not losing you again!”
"He won't stop, Jack." I try to reason with him. "Not until he has me..."
It's a difficult truth we both know. Blackbeard isn't a new enemy to us. We understand how he works. He must have the world and even that isn't enough.
"I won't let him have you, Y/N... not in a million years. We'll sail the world if we must," he promises before leaning in and planting a kiss on my forehead.
The atmosphere is dark and heavy. I can hardly my pounding heart. My breathing quick.
"Try it, Y/N..." Blackbeard whispers over my shoulder as I'm suddenly standing over a table covered in candles and various relics ranging from a human skull to a snakeskin.
"I told you! I don't practice this sort of magic!" I move to leave the dark and unfamiliar room on his ship, but he grabs my forearms, pinning me in place.
"For me, you will!" He growls. "You will curse any who turns against me!" He commands and laughs wickedly. "Do it or your precious Jack Sparrow will be sent to Davy Jones's locker!"
I whip my head around, meeting his vile stare. "You wouldn't!"
"Try me," he challenges with a smirk. "Take my hand. Take my hand and I'll show you what your abilities can truly do..." he extends his arm out to me.
I stand, torn between my two choices. A part of me is curious selfishly curious about what I can do. After all, magic does have more profound results than the minor incantations and elixirs I've been creating. Yet, my grandmother's voice echoes in my mind. 'Never touch the dark. I'll pull you in and take you under until you lose yourself in it.'
"Trust me, Y/N... you are more powerful than you realize..." Blackbeard entices.
Hesitantly, I extend out my arm and slip my hand into his, perhaps this is what I've been meant to do all along?
"Y/N! Y/N! Wake up!"
I fly up from my laid position, gasping for air. A soaked Mr. Gibbs hovers over as rain pours down on both of us.
"What happened?" I ask, searching around to discover I'm on deck.
"You were sleepwalking, Miss!" He helps me up to my feet. "Nearly went over, you did!"
Sleepwalking? I haven't done that in years...
"Do you do this often? Sleepwalk, I mean." He questions.
"Only when there's danger." I start to worry as I look about for any sight of Blackbeard, perhaps it was all really in my head, but it seemed so real.
I roll over and stretch my arm, expecting for it to land on Y/N. When it doesn't, I immediately snap up. "Love?" I glance around the room and there's no sign of her. I rush out of bed and grab a candle to search for her.
"He's after me, isn't he? Blackbeard."
His brows scrunch together. "What makes you think that?"
"My dreams. They're never wrong!" I explain, almost certain I'm right, but a piece of me is still hoping it's not true.
His features fall and he nods faintly. "That's what Captain suspects."
I knew it. Everyone believes it to be true. Everyone is sailing off to Tortuga knowing that Blackbeard is chasing us. Every day I'm on this ship is another day I put everyone here at risk. I start toward the stairs the doors that lead to Jack's office urgently.
"It'll be alright though!" He tries to reassure me. "Captain won't let anything happen to ya! He'll send the Pearl to the depths first!"
"That's what I'm afraid of..." I mutter, looking out at the night's horizon. "Don't tell Jack, okay? He'll only worry."
"Where are you going, Miss?" Gibbs questions worriedly.
"There's something I have to do!" I announce, not slowing down. "If Jack awakes, lie for me."
I stand with my palms pressed to Jack's desk, the candles acting as my sole form of light. Please, don't let this fortune be dark. I flip over the first card of the pattern.
The Magician upside down.
There are a number of things this could mean. Considering my current situation, I'm assuming the universe means ill intentions and deceit. Though, poor communication could also be a factor that would lead to the confusion the card also means.
Swiftly, I flip the next card. My heart sinks.
The High Priestess upright.
Evidently, hidden talents are to be revealed. Yet, there's a matter of mystery and spiritual insight to be noticed. This lay is far too accurate so far.
Nervously, I flip the next card.
Immediately, I slam my hands against the desk. "No, no, no, please," I beg the universe.
Perhaps one of the most gruesome cards. When upside down it can foresee a broken relationship or infidelity. A loss of a relationship.
My eyes fall shut for a moment. Please, please don't let this one be dark. Let there be some light in this.
I flip the final card over, nervously peeking at it.
Three swords upright.
"No! No! No!" I slam my fists against the table.
Again, a loss of a relationship or worse an accidental death is to be seen. There's all that can be seen in my future... deep emotional sorrow.
I scream, sliding my arms across the wood, causing the cards to scatter across the floor.
As I travel down the hallway, I hear banging coming from my office. I hold up the candle to see beneath the door, a faint glimmer peaks out from beneath it.
"Y/N?" I pop my head in and see her back to me, standing over my desk. I enter swiftly. "Love? What is it?"
She jumps, grasping at her chest. "Jack! Jesus, you scared me."
My brows scrunch together as I notice the objects scattered across the rug and the handful of candles burning in a semi-circle. "What are you doing?"
"What? Oh! Uh... Nothing, I was just... uh..." She stammers.
I approach her slowly, scanning the floor and realizing that the objects are tarot cards. "You were doing a reading." I sigh, meeting her gaze. "I told you they only make you worry."
She rolls her eyes and kneels down to begin picking them up. "I know. I just... I need answers!"
I kneel down beside her to help. "You won't get them from these cards."
"I don't know, I think they're pretty telling," she argues.
Her words only make me worry more. I reach up and touch her cheek, making her meet my gaze. "You haven't slept in days, Love"
She toss the cards from her hands with a frustrated jolt. Her hands land on her lap with a smack as she rises to her feet and away from me toward the windows. "He's following us! Don't act like you don't know that! It's the silent truth everyone's trying so desperately to ignore!"
I stand up but remain where am I to not press her. "I won't let him hurt you!"
She spins around to face me. "That's the problem! I almost wish you would toss me over to him! At least then everyone wouldn't be putting themselves at risk for my sake and Will would have Elizabeth back!"
"We'll save Elizabeth!" I promise, finally crossing the room to her. I grip her shoulders and lower myself to her level despite her looking anywhere but me. "For right now, we're doing all we can! We're returning to Tortuga and recollecting ourselves. We may lose Blackbeard on the way!" I caress her cheek. "Please Love, don't lose yourself in this madness."
"Perhaps this madness is the kick I needed to discover what I'm truly capable of," she remarks.
My eyes narrow with both worry and confusion. "What do you mean?"
"Magic, Jack... " She snickers lightly with an unfamiliar smirk. "We both know I can do more than I am."
I shake my head frantically, comprehending her meaning between the lines. I don't understand the girl standing before me right now, this isn't like her.
"No, Y/N!" I refuse, knowing this isn't really her. "You've said so yourself, there's a balance that shouldn't be tampered with! You do what you do because it helps people! You grandmother-"
"There's good magic!" She shouts, aggravated. "There are options! If I find the right book and tools then I may have a shot at stopping this! Blackbeard is more superstitious than he cares to admit. If I can scare him enough then perhaps-"
"You'll only be feeding into what he wants..." I tell her. "He wants you because of your abilities! The more you explore and educate yourself, the more use you have to him! He'll never stop until he has you!"
Her eyes narrow with a mix of determination and wickedness. "Then I'm just going to have to cripple his power before has the chance."
"Y/N, Love..." I approach her, taking her wrists in my hands pleadingly. "This isn't you!"
She grins and there's a mischievous glimmer in her eye. "Maybe this has been me all along and it's taken this situation to trigger my true self. After all, my dreams are never wrong..."
The mention of her dreams worries me. I recall the power they have. They've predicted things before. "What do you mean?" I press, squeezing her wrists tighter between us.
She snickers, unfazed by my reaction. "Don't trouble yourself, Jack. I have it handled."
I hardly recognize the girl I'm staring at. Y/N would never consider using magic beyond healing. Even if her intentions are good, there's a fine line between White and Dark magic. I've seen the results of someone who loses control in it. I can't allow Blackbeard to manipulate Y/N into becoming his puppet.

26th and 27th September 2021: Spider, views out the back and front and Lakeside walk
Before bed last night I took the first picture in this photoset of another large and interesting spider in the house. I took the second picture in this photoset of some blue sky after a blustery start this morning. It got much brighter as the morning went on as the third and fourth pictures in this photoset that I took show of the view from my room with sunflowers in a neighbouring garden looking nice which I have noticed a bit lately and another lovely view of the moon in the blue sky. One of the young trees out the back has suddenly started to be largely overcome by yellow autumn leaves which looked nice and I took and tweeted a photo of earlier.
I enjoyed seeing broad-leaved clover on the green out the front as I took Missy for a walk this lunch time once again at Lakeside. I took the fifth, sixth and seventh pictures in this photoset of smashing green scenes against a stunning blue sky as we walked round. Common Darter dragonfly and Speckled Wood butterfly were fantastic to see flitting around once more in a lovely run of seeing these.
Then I had some interesting moments with young birds when I first saw delicate humbug young Great Crested Grebes swimming on Kornwestheim lake. I had a quick spy of them in the binoculars but not as well as I would have if I wasn’t (on lead) dog walking, but I am pretty sure these are the current group of young grebes on Concorde lake as this lake is joined to that one where the bridge goes over. The Great Crested Grebe chicks from Kornwestheim lake last year ended up swimming about in Concorde lake a lot too. But Kornwestheim lake hosts what I believe is the oldest pair that had the chicks last year and before the Concorde group became the second family of their kind of 2021 at Lakeside this pair were doing a lot with nesting. I had continued to keep an eye on them as they seemed to abandon the nest where I’ve seen Moorhen, Coot and the young grebes today themselves by recently. I haven’t explored as much of Kornwestheim lake as I maybe would have liked lately but have seen the Great Crested Grebe pair across the lakes at times so it was a fanciful thought that maybe this pair also had chicks without me noticing. Doing the dog walks I tend to do walks in squares around the place so didn’t see where they would be on Concorde lake but I don’t think they are different Great Crested Grebe chicks I think they are the same ones.
I took the eighth picture in this photoset of a loudly crowing Carrion Crow by Kornwestheim lake which was great to see.
When we reached beach lake I enjoyed seeing Greylag Geese, Mute Swans and Mallards well again. And I was surprised to see a young Mute Swan at the back of the lake. It had the grey feathers but was a young one that is nearly adult size. I took the ninth picture in this photoset of it. I can say for sure there have been no Mute Swan cygnets raised at Lakeside this spring or summer so I am not sure where this one came from. I don’t know if its even related to the new birds but given the very little amount of time the swans have spent here over the spring and summer compared to normal its possible they raised a cygnet elsewhere then brought it here. It was a fascinating moment and its only the really small cygnets I ever seem to see at Lakeside not the bigger ones so much as the adults do tend to see off the youngsters when they reach a certain age they are very territorial so this was good to see.
I took the tenth and final picture in this photoset of yellow and green leaves sparkling in the sunshine on a tree out the front in a particular line of trees. I actually nickname these trees the 27th September trees after I took pictures of them on a Friday evening on that date in 2019 looking nice and autumnal. Back then in a working week I was obviously in the office so I would only take a handful if any pictures in the week usually sunsets or garden birds but in the season the more autumnal subjects too so it just stuck in my mind as being that date. So it was nice to capture it again on this date. The day continued to be very nice and I took pictures out the front of things looking so very green again this evening.
Wildlife Sightings Summary: One of my favourite birds the Great Crested Grebe, Mallard, Mute Swan, Greylag Goose, Black-headed Gull, Starling, Feral Pigeon, Collared Dove, Woodpigeon, Jackdaw, House Sparrow, Goldfinch, Speckled Wood, Common Darter, crane fly and spider.
