Even with his mind as clouded as it had become, Grays words punctured him. From where they struck, alternating waves of anger and weakness flowed through him. What he previously sought as the only reasonable exit from this dead, stagnant sea had been closed off, slammed in his face and wrapped in a barrier of doubt.
The barrel pressed to his temple offered no comfort. It offered none before, but now even its deceitful promises of release had been silenced. Slowly, but surely, the glorious wooden deck of his ship faded to rusted steel; his flag tattered to nothingness, his battle scars replaced with disgraceful tears streaming down his cheek. Sean could only stare back at Gray, pleading in an empty wish that he take it all back.
His mind replayed the events of the last half hour. The announcements played not too long after waking up. Just then, directly before that moment, everything was fine. Then the mere mention of a na me, and his new happy crew mutinied. No
no, thats not what happened. They were upset, Ami and Ruby, because they said Sean was a killer.
Sean was a killer. They were right. Panic had overcome him in the moment, and he nearly killed again. Instead, fate would have Sara be the victim. Maybe it wasnt by his hands, but they remained stained with her blood. Aria
it was Aria who rested more directly on his conscience. Direct or not, it was the event that led to everything. Because of one stupid squabble, Aria died. Because he died, Ruby threatened him. Because he was threatened he fought and, finally, because he fought, Sara died.
Everything started with something that was entirely his fault.
If only an apology would have made everything better. Sean would apologize a thousand times over to have things go back to the way they were when they were in school, before this little game began
before Sean started to play his own game when the first bothered him. Wishing for things to be so was ultimately pointless, however, and the truth in knowing this was becoming too much to bear.
Sean said, his voice weak and cracking. Im not a pirate
Im a coward. He collapsed into sobs, both hands striking the deck. The pistol clattered and clinked away from him and his lost dream, stopping somewhere between himself and the doorway where Gray and Corey were. Not only was he a coward, he thought of himself, but he was too weak to even take what Gray called the cowards way out. So there Sean lay, a pathetic, leaned-over mass curled up on the deck of a useless ship that would never again float.
How fitting it was that the skies opened up to rain.
