Barbossa watched as it seemed Jim was beginning to find his way. He was sure that he'd lift the curse in time...and by the looks of where the gold was located...in a good amount of time. He took gulped down the last of his drink.
Jack poked him on the shoulder and Barbossa glared at him, still irritated with him, and promptly ignored him. When he continued how ever, Barbossa shouted, "What in th' blazes, Jack?! Ever heard of expressin' what it is ye want?" He looked up and saw that he needed money for the bartender. Barbossa rolled his eyes. "Oh fine." He took out his shillings and bought another round of drinks. Jack was lucky he was having a good night of Poker.
The drinks came and Barbossa started on his second drink. Barbossa had already had a couple while playing cards, and he was aiming to stop for the night. But with Jack around, he knew that wouldn't be possible. To Elizabeth's sudden denial of Will, Barbossa interjected. "Arrr, Gibbs is right. Th' only way t' be liftin' the curse is through Turner, m'lady. But if ye be offerin t' shed yer blood again," he chuckled. "Well, it's good t' be coverin' all yer options, Jimmy."

((I'm just busting in without much sense of what's going on....and forgive me for the godmodding, but it makes for Ursula to have this grand entrance.))
Ursula was in her purple pirates suit and looking glamorous. Her black trident was in the form of a black pirates sword. Anyone with eyes could see that she was in Tortuga. Now Ursula is a very fun individual...when you get passed all of the power hungry evil things that she had done. Her being a villain just adds to the humor. She sat at a nearby bar not too far from what looked like the child surfer, Barbossa, Jack, Liz, and Gibbs. Rather than waltz over and be the queen B she usually is, she was going to wait for a little excitement to happen, "I'll have just water...have to watch my girlish figure." She told the barkeep.
Ursula felt the eyes of a few local bums on her. Probably her impeccable clothing making her look like a short fat captain with good makeup gave the illusion that she was well do. She heard the grunts and the mumbles of them as she was offered the water. She took a few sips and within moments a bunch of beer and booze smelling pirates were on top of her, "Do you boys know the meaning of the word foreplay?" She said with a laugh.
Ursula took her sword out of her sheath and spun around violently swinging. All of the pirates were flopped off of her, "Such a shame when people don't know how to treat a lady." She said gulping down the rest of the water and marched, elegantly, for she was on two legs, over to the pirates and cabin boy, "Speaking of ladies...how are you Barbossa?" She said with a wicked grin.
"And I see you've picked up a cabin boy." She said with a surprised smile as she looked over to Jim.

Jack stopped poking Barbossa once the new round of drinks came and gave him a teasing smirk when he got annoyed at him. He looked to Jim when he told him that it didn't work. He looked down at the compass and watched as it changed directions. He then turned his ahead looking away from Jim and said."My compass works fine."He twitched his mouth then looked back at him and said grabbing probably his third or fourth drink. "Unless theres something else that you desire?"
His attention then turned to a very familer sea witch that came to join them at the table."Ursula love!"He said surprised and happy to see her."Haven't seen you in a long time love. Perhaps to long. How have you been?"He then took a chug from his drink."Can I get you anything?"

Barbossa gave a sarcastic smirk at Ursula, cutting his eyes at her snide comment. "Always a pleasure, m'lady." He said just as sarcastically. "Yes, t's a shame th' lads know not much about bein' gentlemen. But certainly, a fine woman like yerself will teach them a lesson or two, to be sure." He gave a fake grin.
"As a matter of fact, Master Gibbs...I'm sure he learns somethin' from good o' Jack here." he chuckled. "Am sure he's fightin' off all of th' lasses, good an' plenty," He took another swallow of his drink.

Ursula smiled, "Jack...always a pleasure to see your face...staying out of trouble I hope?" She asked with a half smile half look of concern, specifically to Liz.
She hadn't been keeping up with the Sparrows...so she had no idea if they were still together or not, "Liz darling?...How is the baby doing?" She asked simply.
She was about to say hello to her old friend Mr. Gibbs, but was cut off by the sarcasm that was Barbossa's brand of comedy. She smiled a very phony smile to Barbossa, "Oh Hector....how I miss that sense of humor....." Her face deadpanned, "Do you miss it too?" She smiled and then it faded.
"Mr. Gibbs...any new stories to tell?" She asked getting the whole table involved in conversation.

Elizabeth smiled at Mr Gibbs and took that drink as well. However, she didn't gulp this one down... partly because it was making her feel funny and partly because everyone seemed to be talking at once and she was trying to keep up. "Fine fine, if we need him... anything to help out Jim." She smiled sweetly to the young lad, who she was taking a liking to already.
Elizabeth looked away from Jim when Ursula came over to their table. "Gosh, it's been ages since I've seen you, Ursula. Lillian's doing great. You must come visit one time to see her."
"Mr. Gibbs...any new stories to tell?" Ursula asked getting the whole table involved in conversation.
"Not any that I can think of as of 'tis moment" he thought for a bit, "oy Jimmy 'ere is under th' aztec curse". His eyes darted over to Jim, with sudden realisation that Jim wouldn't like him talking about his personal life. "Sorry lad, tis that it's just so interesting" he gave Jim an apologetic look.

Ursula smiled at Liz, "It would be my pleasure crab cake." She said with a wink.
It was going to be nice to see the baby considering a big part of the making of that baby was the sea witches doing. When Gibbs mentioned the curse being on Jim, Ursula laughed...loudly, "That is delicious...that is DIVINE!!!...You know I've never taken the coins...I know what happens...It would be funny to see my bones...if I had any!" The invertebrate said laughing her legs off.
"So tell me...what is something that is new happening in your lives...I haven't been manning the shores...just the tides and the ocean itself...and haven't the time to say hello to the people I miss most...even if they are pirates." She chuckled wickedly.

Elizabeth shot a glare to Mr Gibbs. "Don't be so cruel... it's nothing to brag about... it must be terrible to go through such a thing."
Her attention was again taken off Jim and onto Ursula. "I know Lily would love to meet you... come anytime you wish." Her smile was sincere as she spoke. It was, after all, Ursula that had been there through everything. Elizabeth laughed along with Ursula as she tried to picture her as a skeleton. However, when Ursula asked about them all, Elizabeth decided to wait until the others spoke before she said anything.
"Sorry, your majesty" he said sacastically to Elizabeth, when she told him not to be cruel.
He laughed nervously when Ursula asked what's something new with them, he didn't like to share his personal life with Ursula he found her weird. In fact he didn't like sharing his life with anyway. "Well, er...um" he glanced at Jack, "Jack?" he said urging Jack to speak so he didn't have to.

"Ey?"He said turning his head towards Gibbs when he heard him call his name. He whipped his head towards Ursula then back at Gibbs."Oh."He turned his head backtowards Ursula. "Well er besides everything that has already been mentioned, nothing really new has been happening with me."He then picked up his drink and took a chug from it. "And theres no trouble at all love."He gave her a smile then finished off his drink.

"A lively bunch...You remind me of the barnacles on Davy Jones' hat....now something is wrong and I demand that I'm told what is going on." She said forcefully.
"I don't want to use my powers...not in Tortuga this is the holy land, but I will if something is being withheld from me." She said and anyone with ears can hear that the waves were increasing in quantity and forcefulness.
"Now...what...is...going.....on?" She said in a stacatto way.
Post by Captain Jack Sparrow on Mar 23, 2009 21:29:21 GMT -5
"You're right about that love. Tortuga is the holy land and there is no need to use your powers for I can assure you that there is nothing wrong."He said sincerly. He had seen her use her powers before and knew what she was capabable of doing especally when she had the trident with her and he did not want to see his favoirte place destroyed. But except for Jim being under the aztec curse there really wasn't much going on. At least, he hoped there wasn't, but by the way Mr.Gibbs had looked it him it looked as if there was something wrong.

Barbossa listened to the conversation, not really wanting to interject at the moment. But then Ursula started to get a bit crazy, prying people for information that he had no idea was being withheld. Gibbs seemed a bit suspicious though and he looked up from his drink during the conversation to study Gibbs with a beady eye. Was he keeping something? And was it something that would be of interest of him? Questions, questions, questions.
"Ah, nothin' particularly excitin' be happenin' over this side of th' dock," He finally said to Ursula. "Though sailin' with th' Pearl be a fine way to be spendin' my leisure time." He smiled, glancing at Jack briefly. He sat back in his chair and addressed Ursula again. "M'lady, I fail t' be seein' a reason fer yer suspicions. Seems t' me nothin's goin' on here but a fair drink amongst friends...." He looked around him. "...relatively." His eyes landed on Gibbs. "Unless Mr.Gibbs is willin' t' tell one of his stories," By the looks of him, it didn't seem to be of the tall tales and legends variety, that is if Gibbs had something to say at all.
Gibbs felt uneasy when he saw Barbossa eyeing him. What is he looking at, he can’t know can he? Gibbs thought. It’s just the way Barbossa is, he sees things others don’t. When he bought up that he wants him to tell a story, he was relieved. But also weary, no one is allowed to know his secret.
“Tis a story yer wanna ‘ear. Well, I ‘ave one that I’m willing to share, if yers don’t ‘ave anything in particular that yer wanna ‘ear?” He asked, but not waiting for an answer he continued. “I thought not….Tis a tale about a ship that travels the seven seas, th’ night of a full moon, when lightening lights t’ skies.” He placed one hand on Elizabeth’s shoulder to lean against.
“Tis said ship, is not like any other ship, it can toll the toughest of conditions, and it can overcome anything in its path. Even if ye were in its road” he pointed at both Barbossa and Jack. Indicating that he meant that they would die if they took on this ship. “It goes from town to town, village to village. Destroying it til the rubble was nothing but the essence of the wind.” He rolled his eyes, trying to think of more to add to this story. He would laugh so hard if they were fooling for this.
“Th’ crew kidnap and torture young lasses, much like yerself Elizabeth” he turned smirked and winked at her. “These women do eventually return, but crazy and murderous. It take an army of a hundred men to take each lass down. I’m being nice when I call them lasses, as they were far from it.” He paused, for a dramatic effect. “T’ captain of this ship is the legendary Captain….Feathersword!” The lights flicked off as he said this name, all but one above him. It gave his face an eerie, ghostly look. “Oi, turn the lights back on. I’m trying to tell a story.” He yelled at the man by the door.
”Sorry” the man said, and flicked the lights back on.
“Ave any of ye heard of Captain Feathersword?” He asked, lightly nudging Elizabeth because he knew she was too smart to fool for this, urging her to go along with it.
