Kneeling in a pool of his own blood, Edward Teach looked up at the towering form of Lieutenant Maynard, shadowed by his men.

“I promised you no quarter and I expect none in return.”

“And I promised you none would be given, Mr.Teach. So, in the end, we finally agree on something.”

“Just remember, when the sands of time run out, we shall meet again.”

Robert Maynard cast one last glance at the bleeding pirate, feeling a slightest sense of intrigue at his refusal to succumb to the numerous wounds. Turning away, he gave a short command.

“I want his head on a bowsprit.”

    I had to take my time responding so I could listen to the whole piece of music. I love where you went with this. You know, my father’s sailboat had a bowsprit… thankfully no one’s head was staked upon it…

    When the sands of time run out… great take of the prompt. I loved the dialogue, the whole atmosphere, very piraty. And the story is fascinating, thanks for the link. The most amazing thing I find is that he got his reputation in only two years.
