"Easy to say with teeth at your throat. Do the other know of our affliction?" He shakes his head. "Is this the Island initialed on the captains books?" He nods yes. "How do we not know, that you will not run and tell the others if we let you go." The boy pulls his sleeve up to his shoulder, "Drink from me, not my neck so as to be discreet, but I would not offer this if I was not serious, the captain took me from my home on the very isles you thought you were sailing. Let me help you, then I will disappear once we reach land. "
I look to you and see that you trust the boy. "Alright then, we must start taking this men out slowly. I want it too look accidental. First, bring me the man that groped my bride here. Tell him you had your way with her, and she is ready for another, but to keep his mouth shut. If I know how that man is, then he will be here quickly. Also, wait until the sun sets, so we can actually open this window and dispose of him once we are done."
"If you betray us, rest assured we will save you for last, after we make you watch the others perish." The boy gulps audibly, and hold both his arms out. We smile at him, then greedily take just enough to fill ourselves but not weaken our new ally. He actually seems to enjoy it, which makes me think this is not his first time. I poke my finger with the captains knife, and use my blood to heal the boys wounds. He looks at me amazed.
"Now go child, and send the man in 5 hours." We laugh as he leaves, feeling elated from his blood, and the prospect of a new ally in clearing the ship. "Such a nice lad" I say and wipe the blood from around your mouth.
