“Oh, fine! Let’s just haul out our swords and start banging away at each other! That will solve everything! I’ve had it! I’ve had it with wobbly-legged, rum-soaked pirates!”
He looks at her lips, and almost lets himself slip.
She’s half closed those fiery eyes, and for all her insults and protests, he can see how much she wants him to kiss her.
But this is wrong.
She’s a child.
A child trapped in a ghost story, who imagines him as her hero.
He’s no hero.
She’s making the best of a situation that couldn’t be worse.
He’s having to fight every single cell in his body.
He wants her.
He needs her.
But she’s too good.
She’s full of goodness and youth.
Not all treasure is silver and gold.
Sometimes it’s crowned with golden locks and watches you with hazel eyes, wanting you to corrupt the only rule you’re clinging to with everything.
He doesn’t kiss her.
He barely touches her.
He can see the hurt in her eyes and he almost apologizes.
But then she promises to marry Norrington and he finds he’s not sorry.
Now she’s looking at him and her mouth speaks what her eyes still can’t admit.
She wants him, when she shouldn’t.
She’s set out to rescue her love. He’s promised to help, like the utter fool he’s become over her.
She’s not a child anymore. She’s quickly become a woman, dangerous and determined.
When she takes him by surprise and kisses him, he’s not sure whether to thank the gods or curse them.
For he should have known tasting her lips would come with a hefty price.
The click of the manacles around his wrist brings him out of the haze her kissing shrouded his mind in.
She smiles at him, and the deadly determination shines at him through her eyes.
She’s not sorry either.
He calls her what she loves, and despises all at once, and he imagines that he sees a glimmer of pride in those eyes.
She leaves him to die.
But death is not the end, it’s merely the next step in the master plan.
That’s what he tells himself as he’s swallowed by a beast like no other.
He can only dream of what she will be like the next time he sees her.

Just wait Captain Sparrow. You give it one hour, maybe two; keep a weather eye out and you will see white sails on that horizon.
potcmeme: [8/8] quotes
” You will listen to me! Listen! The other ships will still be looking to us, to the Black Pearl, to lead, and what will they see? Frightened bilgerats aboard a derelict ship? No, no they will see free men and freedom! And what the enemy will see, they will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! ”
