Gibbs wandered around The Black Pearl, trying to find something to do, every single person of the crew had done their duties without being told, he had to pinch himself to make sure that he wasn't dreaming.
He spotted Elizabeth in the distant, he decided to approach and have a chat. When he got to her, he noticed that she had Lillan with her. He found it funny, Lillan's a few months old now and he's never really meet her.
"Ello Elizabeth" he glanced down at Lillan, "the lass looks thirsty" he said, he leant in and put his flask full of rum near her lips, "ya mind?" He asked Elizabeth.
(I want there to be a sea battle later, he he he )

Elizabeth watched the water over the railing with Lillian in her arms. She felt so content with the view and the calmness, she didn't hear anyone approach her until she heard a voice. Looking over with surprise, she recovered quickly when she saw who it was.
"Mr Gibbs! I didn't see you there..." She smiled, but when he offered her daughter his flask, it dropped. "Oh, I'd rather she didn't. I don't need her becoming addicted to it like her father..." She gave Mr Gibbs a knowing look and her smile was back.
However, Lillian had other ideas. Since the flask was so close to her, she tried to grab it in her tiny fingers. But she only managed to knock it out of Mr Gibbs hand and both her and Elizabeth watched as it fell to the deck. "Oh, I'm sorry about that... she just can't seem to keep her hands to herself." Elizabeth looked down at Lily with affection as she spoke.
Anger flooded Gibbs when Lillan knocked the flask out of his hands, it fell into the sea before he could pick it up. He turned and was about to yell at the lass, but looking at her made the anger disappear. Shes just so cute, he thought, but he wasn't game enough to admit it.
Instead of yelling at her he smiled an awkward smile, and rubbed the top of her head roughly. "Your alright lass, your alright" he reasurred both himself and Elizabeth that he wasn't mad.
"Or maybe not" he said as he stared at the open sea, just above the horizon a ship was heading straight towards them at an incredible speed.

Elizabeth watched as Mr Gibbs looked angrily towards the fallen flask. She bit her lip nervously, knowing how much Mr Gibbs liked his drink. He looked like he was about to tell off Lillian and her mother instincts made Elizabeth step back a bit. However, he smiled and rubbed Lily's head and Elizabeth sighed in relief.
"Again I'm sorry about that... I'm sure there would be some more on the ship, right?" She looked at Mr Gibbs with a smile as they both knew pirates don't sail without alcohol on board, especially with the ship they were on currently and who the captain was.
Elizabeth didn't seem to hear the edge in his voice when he spotted the ship, she didn't even seem to notice the ship. "Do you see that lass?" He pointed in the direction of the oncoming ship. He didn't need her to tell him that it was real cause he knew that it was already, also because other crew men were lining up at the side staring and pointing at it.
Gibbs knew if that ship got close enough that they would be in real trouble. "Get Jack!" He ordered Elizabeth.

Jack sat in a chair inside the Captains quarters. He had a map layed out across the table and his compass sat beside it. He poked his compass a few times then looked back at the map trying to figure out where he wanted to go. The compass spinned around uncontrollably then it stopped at a jug that was sitting in front of the map. He gave the map up then grabbed the jug and examined it wondering if there was any inside. He turned it upside down and nothing came out of it."Why is the rum always gone."He said to himself as he placed it back on the table.
He got up from his chair then went down the stairs below the deck. He grabbed the keys and opened the door that led to where the extra stash of rum would be if they ever ran out. "Ah." He said as he spotted one and grabbed it. He grabbed another one just incase figuring that Mr.Gibbs would proabably want one as well. He walked back up the stairs then out onto the deck with the two jugs of rum in his hands.
"Ello love,"He said as he walked towards where Elizabeth stood." and how are my two favoirte women doing aye?"He smiled. He gave Elizabeth a peck on the cheek then turned towards Mr.Gibbs and handed him the jug of rum. "Thought that you might have wanted one. "He then looked at Mr.Gibbs then out onto the horizon then back at him then noticed that the crew was gazing out at the horizon as well."What are you all looking at?"He asked curious to know but then caught on as he spotted the ship heading closer towards them."Oh."
"All hands on deck! Hoist the sails,ready the cannons and prepare for battle!"He ordered the crew."Come on, step to it! You all know what to do! Oy oy!" He said as he headed towards the wheel.
For the first time that he can remember, Gibbs rejected the rum that Jack had offered him. Now's not the time to get drunk. He pointed at the ship for Jack to see, but realised that he had already seen it.
"All hands on deck! Hoist the sails,ready the cannons and prepare for battle!" Jack ordered the crew."Come on, step to it! You all know what to do! Oy oy!" he said.
"I will head below deck and help ready the cannon." He turned to Elizabeth as he noticed Jack failed to do so, "Elizabeth, Get yer self and the lass to saftey" he ordered.
He ran down to the bottom deck, there were already men there that hadn't heard Jack's orders. "Ready the cannons!" he shrieked, "possible threat coming tis way". The men began shuffling about. One of them eventually turned to him. "the ammo", Gibbs misunder stood and thought this was a question, he was about to answer when the man cut in again. "Tis gone!" He crowed.
He ran back above, and caught Jack again before he got to the wheel, "Jack" he called, "the ammo, tis gone. What do we do?" He asked.

Elizabeth looked to where Mr Gibbs was pointing and she gasped. "Why can't I ever step foot on a ship without trouble following?" She shook her head in disbelief, but she knew it couldn't be avoided. If it was coming, there was no stopping it. Mr Gibbs' next order wasn't necessary seeing as Jack appeared not long after.
Elizabeth smiled in answer and Lillian's face lit up when she saw her father. She began to wriggle in Elizabeth's arms, indicating that she wanted to be let go, possibly to Jack. However, Elizabeth knew that now there was danger coming, Jack wouldn't have time. Elizabeth held onto her tighter. "Not now, Lily, daddy's busy."
Then Mr Gibbs spoke to her again and she frowned. "We'll be alright... but if it gets too tough, don't worry, we'll leave." Once Gibbs was gone, she followed Jack to the wheel. Yet again, Gibbs was there and she started to wonder if there could possibly be more than one. She was on the verge of laughing at the image but what Mr Gibbs had just said made her freeze. "No ammo?" Elizabeth glanced to Jack with question, curious as to what his answer would be too.
"Aye, no ammo" he repeated himself again for Elizabeth. "'though tis mornin' we 'ad enough to last us a month."
Mr. Gibbs turned around, and scanned the ship looking for the missing ammo, he already knew there wouldn't be much point but it wouldn't hurt to try. Suddenly something dawned on him. He turned back to Elizabeth and Jack. Mr. Gibbs grew nervous of his sudden realisation, he grabbed the bottle of rum that someone had placed there on a table nearby and began drinking. He lowered the bottle and looked at his friends with a serious look.

Ragetti snickered as the duo hid behind some crates in the below deck.
"Shhh!" Pintel said, putting a finger to his lips. "Ya want 'em t' catch us?" He whispered harshly.
"No," Ragetti said, still snickering. "But this is awfully excitin'. Barbossa is sure t' be happy, he is," His eyes widened enormously in realization. "...we're like spies! Secret lurkers aimin' t' do another pirate's biddin'. We should 'ave code names!" He whispered.
Pintel rolled his eyes and watched to see if the men under the deck would run upstairs, seeing as though they were useless trying to ready the cannons without ammo. Sure enough they did.
"Coast is clear, Ragetti!" Pintel said and emerged from his hiding spot behind the crates. Ragetti did as well.
" 'ey, I got an idea!" Ragetti said. "Jack likes rum. We should take all th' rum and throw it in th' ocean." He grinned widely.
"Tha's a terrible idea. No need to be wasteful of all that rum!" Pintel said. "Now what we really need t'--"
" 'Ey listen," Ragetti said looking above him. He looked back at Pintel and grinned. "It's th' poppet up there."
"Oh we'll get th' poppet," Pintel said mischievously. "Th' pretty pretty poppet. We'll get her, don't worry."
"I've got one question, though." Ragetti said, his expression wary.
"Iye? What is it?"
" 'ow we gonna get away with this...exactly?" Ragetti asked.
"Oh don't worry about it. Barbossa sent us here to do a job. He wouldn't send us 'ere t' be in danger. He's only lookin' out for our best interests."
Silence. Ragetti and Pintel gazed at each other for a moment in concern.
Pintel shrugged and grinned a stained-toothed grin. "We're in trouble aren't we?"

Jack took hold of the wheel and looked out onto the horizon. His attention then turned towards Mr.Gibbs as he spoke."Load the cannons with anything you can find!"He replied."As long as it can fit, load it."
He then caught Elizabeths glance then looked towards the wriggling baby in her arms."Do you need any help with Lillian love?"He asked as he took a glance back towards the horizon then again at Elizabeth.
"Iye, on it" he rushed back down to the lower deck to load the cannons with anything he can find.
He was about to give the order when he heard faint whispers. He crept towards them, his hand rested upon the top of his sword in case he needs to get to it quickly. He crept until he found the source of whispers. He rolled his eyes when he realised that it Pintell and Ragetti.
Waves of fear flushed him when they heard that they were going to kidnap Elizabeth, "Elizabeth" he whispered to himself, worried about her safety.
He drew his sword and placed it between their faces, "don't turn 'round, unless you wanna lose the other eye eh, Raggetti" He warned. "Now lets go see Jack" He said.

Elizabeth raised an eyebrow at Mr Gibbs. "A mole?" She now looked at Jack in surprise. She knew the captain chose his crew wisely, but then again, if this mole was as good as he seemed, it wouldn't be surprising that they could pull one over Jack. She just hoped Mr Gibbs was wrong.
She remained with Jack at the wheel when Mr Gibbs took off on Jack's order. At the sound of Jack's voice, Lillian began to squirm even more, now confirming to Elizabeth that she wanted her father. She was now starting to make sobbing noises since she wasn't getting what she wanted. Elizabeth sighed at Jack's question.
"No no, I can handle it. You're too busy at the moment for her and I'd hate to interfere with your duties." She smiled, showing that she would try to calm down Lillian. However, Lily didn't like that and now she began a full on wail. Elizabeth closed her eyes in frustration. "Oh Lily." A moment later she re-opened her eyes and gave Jack an apologetic look.

Suddenly the sound of a blade being drawn was sounded and a sword was placed in between the two. Pintel and Ragetti went for their own cutlasses instinctively but then they heard more footsteps come down below deck. Their efforts would would useless.
Ragetti slowly put his hands up in a sign of surrender and Pintel followed suit.
"W-W-we're not Pintel and Ragetti," Ragetti stammered. "I'm agent Legend and he's...agent Kraken. We're undercover."
Pintel elbowed Ragetti in the side. "Hush! The jig is up Ragetti! We'll go quietly!" They followed Gibbs at blade point. Pintel said as an after thought. "Aye, why I gotta be agent Kraken??"
"W-W-we're not Pintel and Ragetti," Ragetti stammered. "I'm agent Legend and he's...agent Kraken. We're undercover."
"I be no fool, Ragetti" he pushed them into the wall and turned them around so they were facing him, his sword against their necks. "What are ye plans for Elizabeth?" He interrogated, "Ye two were the ones that took the ammo, ain't yer?" His eyes seemed like they darkened so they looked more threatning. "What did yer do wit' it? Who do ye work for?" Gibbs knew that it wasn't a good idea to ask them two many questions at once, but he wanted answers and he wanted them fast.
