The Warrior "The Coma" S1 E19


Beautiful skies that were pinker than anything throughout the Spiral. Crops, grass, and trees looking healthier than anything in the whole entire Spiral with the weather warmer than most well-built homes. Most places have weather with healthy and beautiful surroundings once in every year. Although for places like Mooshu, the weather and the green trees and plants were normal for the farmers and others with a unique fighting skills, like Sanchi and his master.
"I need to wake up," Sanchi said worriedly, "My friends probably think I am dead. I must be buried deep underground, slowly losing my breath...maybe that's why I can't wake up, I'm probably already dead!"
Master Hanju laughed, "This is a dream, young Sanchi. A very unique dream with more meaning than you'll ever know."
"I must know more about my father," Sanchi said nervously, "Why is that I haven't seen him for my whole life and then randomly he finds me when the armadas and the pirates want me for what I found?"
A question Hanju would never thought he would hear in a long time, longer than this. The old man slowly got up and grabbed his cane, walking towards his crops. Meanwhile Sanchi waited for Hanju's response, too eager to wait any longer as if he was seconds away from death.
"I need to know," Sanchi said, walking right next to him, "Do you hear me?"
Hanju took a deep breath and turned towards Sanchi, placing his wrinkled hand on Sanchi's shoulder, "He's your real father and that's all I can tell you. I have trained you for years and years, showing more progress than anyone I have trained before. I thought of you as my own son and it's true you're not mine."
"No disrespect but you're telling me stuff I already know," Sanchi said eagerly
"Your training is close to being completed," Master Hanju said, "All of these problems you're going through, from the bounties to the treaty, you must overcome them yourself. Stannis is your father and you must deal with him. The last name Sameria isn't common but the blood is."
Master Hanju then walked away from Sanchi, making his way towards his temple, that was filled with light brighter than the sun itself. Light so bright that Sanchi had to look away before it blinded him, but Hanju continued to walk towards the light, and it didn't harm him one bit.
"I can't do this," Sanchi said as he dropped onto his knees, "Don't leave please! I need to know more!"
Hanju then stopped and smiled, "You can do it, you'll soon become the chosen one. You'll be the one who will defeat the armadas."
Sanchi's master than turned back around and walked into the light. Sanchi then got back up and ran towards the light, with his hand in front of his face to block the light. He called for Hanju's name countless times before tripping his self and falling over. Sanchi closed his eyes, starting to hear loud voices all around him.
"Open your eyes," the voices said,
Sanchi stood up and slowly opened up his eyes, causing the light to become darker and darker. He finally opened up his eyes completely wide, seeing no more lights or dark...or Mooshu. Sanchi slowly rose up out of the bed and looked around the dark and cold room. From that moment Sanchi realized he was alive and awake. Outside of the room he heard Anthony's conversation with Amy, talking about the whereabouts on Sanchez and Stannis, which made him get out of his bed instantly.

"He's your friend," Amy said as he slapped Anthony on the back of his filthy head, "You should know where he's at!"
Anthony threw up his hands innocently, "Sorry I can't remember everything like you!"

"It's not just that," Amy said with a sense of humor, "Last night you literally called me Adeline! You slept with me a few times and you still can't remember my name?"
Anthony then gave Amy a little smirk with a chuckle, "Oh sorry I am not a genius like you! It was very late that night and I wanted to go to bed but of course I couldn't because you was..."
Amy quickly stopped Anthony from finishing his sentence, "Do not finish that sentence! Someone could be around and hear the stupid nonsense that's coming out of your mouth!"
"Aye I forgot all about an unconscious man in the other room," Anthony said sarcastically, "Oh Sanchi is probably listening to our conversation right now."
Anthony then walked towards the door to open it. Amy meanwhile rolled her eyes and for a quick moment had thoughts of attacking him with her knifes, but forgot how sometimes she loves him. Anthony grabbed the knob firmly and turned it, opening the door wide open and shouted; "Hey Sanchi, guess what me and Amy did? We made..."
Suddenly Anthony stopped with his mouth wide open and his face redder than any other berries he seen before. From that moment Anthony felt like a complete idiot in not just in front of Amy, but in front of Sanchi...who stood right in front of him, conscious and standing.
"Anthony," Sanchi said calmly, "I hope I forgot about this...soon."
The young lad stood there with the same surprised and embarrassed look on his face, "You're...awake...that's good."
"I should go," Amy said awkwardly, "I should go and try to let Samuel give us some more food to feed you."
Sanchi stopped Amy. He remembered his dreams well and felt like they were real with an important message. Sanchi believed he needs to leave this island fast and return back to Mooshu, but there was a problem with that. None of them owned a ship or had enough for one.
"I don't need food," Sanchi said  as he got closer to Amy, "I need you to convince Samuel to give us a ship...and maybe a little bit of supplies for the long trip."
Sanchi then walked away from Amy and headed towards the markets, in hopes to find Sanchez and his father. Amy and Anthony assisted for Sanchi to go back in bed to rest but Sanchi, with his eager self, denied the offers as he demanded to find those two before night.

Hours straight, Sanchez ranted all about Stannis, after witnessing him with the devilish armadas. Luckily Beth was with him for the last few hours to calm his self down. After countless hours of Sanchez just ranting and doing nothing about it, he finally decided to go out and find Stannis his self.
"I have to do something," Sanchez said, placing his two pistols in his holster.
"The night is upon us," Beth said, "Stannis isn't the worst enemy right now, these dangerous woods could kill us."
Sanchez chuckled, "Silly girl, trees can't move nor kill us."
"I have heard stories before about trees falling and killing others," Beth said as Sanchez opened up the door to head out, "You shouldn't be heading out alone, it's dangerous."
Sanchez smiled as he turned around, giving Beth a grateful look, staring directly into her beautiful eyes, hoping she would come with him to keep him company,"I would ask you to come but I've noticed about your fear of trees. They might kill ya!"
Beth smiled, deciding to go with Sanchez for a "fun walk," she described it. She then walked past him, purposely bumping into him, "I'll lead us to scary Stannis."

After days of being out due to his coma, Sanchi sees the market area again for the first time in a long time. He walked past others with his hand on the grip of his sword, causing others who walked past him to give him strange looks. Sanchi had a nervous look on his face as if these citizens and market owners were going to turn on him, remembering the important hints master Hanju gave him.
"Master Hanju," Sanchi whispered to his self, "I must know who'll turn on me."
Sanchi then noticed a unique kind of ship, built by the pirate army, landing on the docks. Sanchi then stopped and slowly hid behind a wooden barrel. He slowly poked his head up and watch only one person stepping off of the ship. The old man had a long and grey beard, watched as he mysteriously stuck his hands in his robe, like a usual unic. 
"Lord Spyder," Another unic said, "I never received the news that you were coming?"
Spyder smiled as he patted the young man on his shoulder, "Relax boy, I am not here for you. I am here to visit someone else."
The young man then walked away and Spyder proceeded to go talk to a certain someone. Sanchi nervously poked his head back up, noticing Spyder walked towards him. Sanchi quickly ducked his head before Spyder even saw him. He heard his footsteps grow louder and Sanchi quietly pulled his sword out. With his heard beating rapidly and with his sweat falling off the side of his head, Sanchi quickly jumped out and place the sharp blade of his sword right in front of Spyder's throat. Spyder suddenly stopped and calmly placed his hands up, staring right into Sanchi's eyes with a little grin on his face.
"Nice ship you have," Sanchi said quietly, "Right from Lord Derwitchi and his army."
"Indeed it is," Spyder said as he still remained calm, "I am one who enjoys traveling all around the Spiral."
Even though Sanchi had the sword right on Spyder's throat, one strike away from instantly killing the armless man, he was more nervous than Spyder, who didn't even break a single sweat.
"You're from them," Sanchi said, referring to Derwitchi and his army, "You're here for us! I know Juhn or someone else sent you to see if we were here! That's why I can't have you leaving...you will never get me, my crew, or the treaty!"
Spyder laughed, "Hundreds of people spy for me, all over the Spiral, but...for some odd reason none of them never got the pleasure to meet or even see you or you crew."
"You'll never see any of them again," Sanchi said nervously, "You bastards can't have us...not even the treaty!"
"Young man," Spyder said, "I can feel the sharp and cold blade of your sword on my throat but for some reason you're more scared than I am. Luckily I am not here for you...I am here to visit someone who's just like you!"
Sanchi then became confused as he looked at his own reflection on his sword, slowly moving the sword away from Spyder's throat. Then the voice of One-Eyed Jack quickly brought Sanchi back into reality.
"He's awake," Jack said, suddenly noticing Sanchi's sword was out, "And furious!"
Sanchi then turned around to see who was behind him, never seeing One-Eyed Jack before, "w-w-who are you?"
"A friend," Jack shouted, "One who's close to your friends!"
Sanchi turned back around to make sure Spyder was still there, but he wasn't. He was gone without making a single sound or alarming anyone else. Out of astonishment, he dropped his sword and glanced all around the area to find Spyder...but he was gone. Sanchi then turned back to Jack, "Where's Sanchez, Moresco...where are they?!"
Jack smiled, revealing his golden tooth, "Well well well, I love a good ole' reunion! Follow me and I'll take ye to ya creature of a pet!"

Sanchez and Beth walked into the deep and dark woods, with only Sanchez's two pistols, a small knife for Beth, and two lanterns for the two. Confident Sanchez led the two while a spine-chilling Beth stayed close to him. Both of the two were unaware on what they would come across in the dark woods.
"I can't see anything," Beth said nervously, "There could be something evil in these dark woods...and we wouldn't know it!"
Sanchez turned around, the bright light in the lantern revealing a terrified Beth, who was constantly shaking the lantern.
"There is and it's called Stannis," Sanchez said, squinting his eyes to see past the darkness.
Suddenly their conversation stopped as Sanchez raised one of his hands up, silencing Beth up. Sanchez then unbuckled one of his holsters and pulled out his pistol.
"What do you see?" Beth said, looking all around, "Is it Stannis?"
Beth couldn't see what Sanchez saw, but she heard voices close by. The both then heard a familiar voice; they heard Stannis's voice clearly. Before Beth could say a single word to Sanchez, he dropped the lantern in her arms and started to walk quietly towards the voices, this time with both of his pistols out. Beth tried to follow him but due to the darkness and the light of the two lanterns dying out, she got lost.

Deep in the dark woods, Stannis was, all alone with him and a small fire pit that he recently started. He sat near the fire to get warm, thinking deeply about his son, Sanchi. He was surrounded by darkness, thinking of ways to retrieve the Mooshu treaty without harming his own son or his crew. He knows how valuable the treaty was for both the armadas and the pirates, understanding that the treaty could change the war, mostly for the armadas.
"Lord Stannis," Stannis suddenly heard a voice in the darkness.
He was still sitting down in the same spot, close to the fire, with a calm and steady mind and posture. He easily recognized the voice. 
"Spyder," Stannis said, "You've found me."
Spyder then appeared in front of Stannis, stepping closer to the fire, "One of my sewer rats went on a trip and quickly returned to Skull island, informing me on the whereabouts about you. I instantly got on my ship and sailed down here, with urgent and important news for you."
Stannis nodded his head, impressed with one of his closest ally, "Is it about my son? The treaty? My betrayal?"
"Fortunately, your son is doing well. Unfortunately I am still unaware about the whereabouts of the treaty," Spyder said as he walked around the fire.
Stannis started to worry, finally realizing why he was here,"How...how did they find out about my betrayal?"
"It was quite obvious," Spyder said in his usual calm tone, "You've been gone for awhile, even during Skull island's toughest times. Derwitchi knows you're with the armadas. Soon he will know about Sanchi being your son and if I were you, I would never sail near there or any territory on Derwitchi's side ever again."
Stannis snickered, "Smart old man. I'm guessing he announced it to all of the citizens."
Spyder nodded his head, "His own citizens were starving, and they started to kill each other, and even attacked the senate and killed one. As it gets colder, the need for the Mooshu treaty is becoming more important than ever."
Stannis rubbed his head, grabbing his gray hair and pulling it back. He then stood up and started to pace his self back-and-forth, becoming completely stressed. He started to worry that Sanchi will hear about his betrayal towards the pirate army.
"Thank you," Stannis said to Spyder, "You must go now before someone see you, and you'll be punished and possibly be hanged." 
"I shall," Spyder said, "We'll meet again soon my friend."
Stannis was all alone again with his thoughts as Spyder disappeared into the darkness. He sat down again, this time being further away from the fire. He started to think about what could happen to him and anyone who was involved with him, including Spyder and Sanchi. Suddenly he fell back into reality, hearing another voice right behind him, after feeling the warm tip of a gun right in the back of his head.

"You were with them," Sanchez said angrily as he threw Stannis to the ground, "I saw you with the armadas!"
Stannis took a deep breath and tried to remain calm but feeling the tip of Sanchez's pistol makes it worse. He knew Sanchez's anger and what he was capable of, worrying that he could also tell Sanchi once he wakes up.
"You don't understand," Stannis said, feeling his face burn as Sanchez pulled him closer to the fire pit, "You don't understand why I was there!"
Sanchez then kicked Stannis in his gut, instantly shutting him up, "Do not say another word!"
Wolves all around started to howl louder and louder, but none of them were as loud as Sanchez. Hatred was flowing in his blood the second he saw Stannis, as Sanchez described as a traitor and a coward. Meanwhile Stannis tried to calm the young musketeer down but it made it worse on him.
"I knew it all along. When I saw you on the same ship as Willis, I knew you were with them all along. You should of never came back...you should of stayed hidden like the coward you are!" Sanchez said as he grabbed Stannis by his shirt, throwing him into a tree.
Stannis tried to pull out his knife but Sanchez punched him in his face and threw him back onto the ground. Stannis could taste his own blood as Sanchez punched him in the face again. The old man tried to get up again but Sanchez kicked him in his gut, and tossed him closer to the fire. 
"You kill me," Stannis said, wiping the blood off of his face, "Sanchi will never forgive you! You do not understand my value towards all of..."
Sanchez then kicked him in his face, grabbing him by the collar of his shirt and aiming his pistol right on the center of his head. Sanchez didn't care about Stannis at all, he only wanted to find out the truth on why he was seen with Rooke and Deacon.
"You abandoned your own son," Sanchez said angrily, "Then you came back...and you made everything else worse!"
Sanchez tried to punch Stannis again, but it quickly backfired when Stannis grabbed his fist and twisted his arm, causing Sanchez to fall to the ground. Stannis then got up and kicked Sanchez in his face. Trying to do it again, Sanchez grabbed hit foot and pulled him back to the ground. The two continued to fight on the ground, punching each other constantly until Sanchez managed to crawl away, picking up one of his pistol and aiming it at Stannis. He looked up at Sanchez, falling on his knees, feeling completely defeated. 
"You'll regret this," Stannis said as blood dripped on the dead grass, "You don't understand what you saw...I have a reason on why I was..."
Sanchez interrupted, getting closer to Stannis with his gun still aimed at his head, "You have no excuse on why you were there! None...you're a traitor and nothing else!"
Stannis started to shake his head as he slowly got back up as he confidence started to grow again, "You had that damn thing aimed at me the whole time...from the beginning!
He then started to walk towards Sanchez, causing him to back away. With the wind starting to blow even harder, the flames of the fire started to die out.
"You keep moving...if you keep moving I will kill you!" Sanchez said as he continued to back away.
Stannis started to laugh as their only light started to get darker...and darker, "You're not going to shoot. You're not going to kill me kid!"
Finally the fire died out. Howling from the hungry wolves came to an end. The wind finally stopped. The dark woods finally became silent, until one single gunshot created more howling from the wolves, causing birds to become even louder as they flew out of the trees. The one single bullet alerted Sanchi, Jason, Beth, Moresco, and Chun.

After firing his gun, Sanchez dropped his weapon on the ground and walked towards Stannis's body. He then slowly turned Stannis's body over. Stannis was still breathing, but Sanchez couldn't see any bloody bullet hole anywhere...until he looked down at his leg, where blood was all over his leg.
"You're alive," Sanchez said quietly, "The dark saved you from that one shot."
Sanchez then pulled out his other pistol and aimed it at Stannis's head. Meanwhile, Stannis remained calm, staring at the gun with an angry smirk on his face, believing that this could be Sanchez's biggest mistake. Sanchez slowly started to squeeze the trigger until he heard Beth's voice from behind. 
"Don't do this," Beth said, holding up the lantern, "This is not you...you're not like this!"
Sanchez lowered his gun and turned around to see the terrified look on Beth's face, "I have to kill him. To not only protect myself....but to protect you! This man is a traitor, he probably told the armadas where we were! I already lost Shiruku....I cannot risk losing you!"
Beth slowly approached Sanchez, placing her cold hand on his shoulder. She then kissed him, "Sanchez...I love you."
Sanchez stared into Beth's eyes with a big smile, before he pushed her away and turned back around to take care of Stannis.
"I cannot risk losing anyone else," Sanchez said, aiming his pistol at Stannis again, "I'll make sure this will end..."
"Don't!"
Sanchez stopped once again after hearing a familiar voice, one voice that he easily recognized more than anyone else. He didn't turn around because he couldn't believe the voice he heard. He couldn't believe who was behind him, trying to drown the thoughts of...Sanchi being directly behind him. He thought that he was hallucinating Sanchi's voice, until he heard it again.
"It's me," Sanchi said, slowly approaching Sanchez, "I'm alive and here to...make sure you don't make this mistake."
Sanchez looked behind him, seeing Sanchi, Beth, Jason, Moresco, and Chun right behind him. He then looked down at his bloody hand, he also looked down at Stannis. He couldn't believe what he has done; attacking someone because he felt like he and his crew was in danger.
"Sanchi," Sanchez said calmly as tears from his eyes started to fall, "He was with our enemies...the ones who tried to kill us....and if I don't...if I don't kill him, he could kill all of us."
Sanchi took the gun from Sanchez, approaching Stannis with a concern but a worried look on his face, "Father, is this true? Were you with...the armadas?"
Stannis took a deep breath and struggled to get back up, but he managed to. He placed his bloody and cold hand on Sanchi's shoulder, "I saved all of you. I-I-I told them that none of you were here. I made sure they didn't come here looking for you all. I made sure that you all remained safe while here!"
Sanchez suddenly turned around with an angry look, looking directly at Sanchez, who felt completely guilty. Sanchi was angry and also disappointed at Sanchez for his actions, but he didn't say a single word to Sanchez, which was odd.
"I need to rest," Sanchi said in a low tone, "Take Stannis back to the town and make sure someone takes a look at his wounded leg."
Chun and Jason helped Stannis walk while Sanchez walked away into the darkness. Sanchi just watched without saying a single word to Sanchez as he just walked away.
"Where are you going?" Beth said, "You need to go make sure he's okay."
Sanchi, who wasn't going to bother Sanchez, shook his head and faced the opposite way Sanchez went, "I need to go talk to Amy."

Amy nervously waited for Samuel, standing right next to his stone fire place, trying her best to calm herself down but also to warm herself. She knew this crooked drunk since she was a little girl, remembering all of the old memories when her family had nothing, Samuel took them in. She also remembered the little amount of food he gave them, never forgetting the times where her own father starved just to feed her and Beth.
"Never get near him alone," Amy remembered what Jason always told her and Beth, "Never talk or be with him ever, unless I am there!"
Suddenly she heard the door opening, and instantly smelled a scent of rum as Samuel walked into his own home, noticing Amy sitting right next to his fireplace. She took a deep breath and nervously stood up, smiling at Samuel.
"It's late darling," Samuel said, stumbling past Amy, "Not many girls come around here this late at night."
Amy walked closer to Samuel, helping him get to his bed, something that she'll deeply regret as Samuel tried to pull Amy down on the bed with him. Luckily she removed his arm off around her neck, causing Samuel to fall down on his old bed.
"I need to talk you about something," Amy said as she nervously took a few steps back from Samuel's bed, "It's about you lending...."
Samuel then started to laugh and immediately interrupted Amy, "Dear...dear...Amy! I have watch ye grow for years...under...under my own damn roof!"
Amy then replaced her confused look with a fake smile, "And I appreciate you so much for it. Without you, my family and I could be dead. I owe you so much!"
"Exactly," Samuel said as he rose up a little, giving Amy a creepy look, "Ye such beautiful girl, miss Amy. And of course ye do owe me...Amy."
Samuel managed to get back off of his bed and got in front of Amy, placing his filthy and cold hands on the side of Amy's face. Tears started to come her shaky face, dropping onto Samuel's hands. 
"Tonight be the night...tonight is the night where ye become a woman!" Samuel said, rubbing Amy's soft face as he unbuttoned her shirt.
Amy then pushed his hands away from her, "I-I-I don't want to do this!"
But Samuel didn't listen. He then grabbed Amy and gently placed her on his bed, before taking off his shirt. Meanwhile Amy let it happen, believing she couldn't do anything to stop a drunk Samuel.
"You want gold? You want anymore food?" Samuel said, placing his finger on Amy's lip.
Amy then stopped, and closed her eyes as Samuel got onto the bed with her. Samuel then started to undress her, and Amy remained still, with tears flowing from her eyes. She didn't do it for herself, she did it for her father...and her crew. 
"Did ye ever listen to ye daddy?" Samuel whispered into Amy's ears, "Should of never came here alone!"

The Warrior "The Treaty" S1 E18

Meanwhile in Skull Island, where tensions are becoming high as the cold air and signs of winter begin to spread everywhere, causing crops to die and plantations to fail, food for the pirate army begin to become scarce. The citizens in the area soon become weary and begin to lose faith and hopes for the pirate army to win the war against the armadas if providing food is already becoming an issue. Mooshu, a place where the sun is always shinning and filled with endless amounts of crops, was a place the pirate army needed since the cold doesn't harm any of Mooshu's crops.
"The areas we won and took from the armadas are already in need for food," Benjen said, "We needed an agreement with Mooshu for purposes like this! Winter doesn't even come close to Mooshu."
Benjen was a young pirate, too young to even join the pirates army, but somehow with the help from Max, he was lucky enough to lie about his age to get into the army. He was like Max's little brother and meant the whole spiral to him. Every night, Max would help young Benjen train with swords, guns, and much more, eventually helping him become a valuable fighter. Luckily Benjen was taller than most, which helped a lot from the fact no other pirate, even Juhn and other warriors, would ever think he was only sixteen years old.
"The cold air is a clear sign," Spyder, a middle aged man only used for spying, said, "This will clearly be a long and deadly war if we cannot get the Mooshu treaty to Mooshu soon."
Benjen looked into Spyder's grey eyes and wide eyes, "If Derwitchi was smart, he would make another treaty fast before it's too late!"
Spyder shook his head, rubbing his long and thick white beard, "Mooshu wanted a signature from Arnley, the leader of Joraha. Arnley was really close with the rulers of Mooshu and even helped them build the great temples in Mooshu and provided crops for them, which eventually lead to their great supplies of crops. Sadly few weeks after Arnley signed the Mooshu treaty, the missing Mooshu Treaty, Arnley was stabbed twelve times in the stomach, eventually killing him. Without Arnley's approval for Mooshu to join the pirate army, the leaders of Mooshu wouldn't even supply us with single seed. A problem that Derwitchi, many warriors, and even Max knew about but yet didn't want anyone to find out because they knew it would start chaos. Chaos in wars that wasn't even caused by the enemy, but within, are the type of chaos that can easily defeat us."
Spyder's knowledge was greater than most, being around for decades Spyder has always been known as "the master of spies" and can find out anything even a light whisper in the dark night, Spyder has over hundreds of people, including young adults, spying and giving him information. Betraying or even talking bad about him will always lead to a missing body. All around the Spiral, not many ever heard of Spyder but if they did, they know how powerful he can be.
"You're telling me if people find out they're start rioting and worse?"
Spyder shook his head as he got closer to Benjen, "Words got around and lots of them already know about it. These people living all around us are more dangerous than you and I both think, they will of course riot...they will also burn buildings to the ground, stone the ones who're responsible, and if it comes down to it, they will overthrow Derwitchi and leave all of us without an army, which can lead to the armadas winning this war in just a few days. My little rats already informed me on everything I know, there will be riots, and it will be soon."
Benjen's face quickly become pale as he leaned back into his seat as if the whispers from Spyder were terrified enough to cause families just to move far away. He then begin to worry, believing Max and the rest could be killed just because of scarce of supplies. As his thoughts begin to cause his stomach to hurt and his head to spin, he looked up at Spyder, who looked calm as can be, "We need to go warn them."
Spyder shook his head, understanding how valuable he is not to Derwitchi and the rest. There was a reason why Spyder only took the news to someone like Benjen, someone who was close to someone trustworthy like Dorugh or Max. It was all part of Spyder's brilliant plan, believing that Juhn and the rest would have to believe a honest man like Benjen.
"You must go warn them," Spyder said as he noticed a few citizens walking by with rocks in their hands, "Quickly, boy!"

Derwitchi held an unexpected but also private meeting that he described as important and needed. He invited Juhn since he's the leader of the warriors, but most importantly, he made contact with Sanchi, who has the treaty. Dorugh and Max also attended the meeting since they were with Juhn and also Derwitchi believed they can track them down. Also those three and a few other senators that were close with Derwitchi, knew about their recent issue with food becoming more and more scarce. It's been a topic that made Derwitchi and his senate nervous and well aware for the last few days.
"Arnley is dead," Derwitchi annouced, starting the meeting out with terrible news, "He was the main reason why the leaders of Mooshu wanted to join us. Now with Arnley's death and his signature in the hands of a bunch of scavengers, our hopes of Mooshu joining us has dramatically declined!"
Suddenly the senators begin to freak out, all four of the senators started to panic and tried to talk over each other.
"This cannot be true," Senator Carthy said, "How could we lose so much food when we haven't even hit the midpoint of this war?"
Juhn laughed, "Midpoint?"
Senator Carthy then gave Juhn an evil stare, "Is something funny, warrior? Last time I recalled, you had the chance to get it back but you made someone with a sword and no experience beat you!"
Tensions begin to rise higher and this time it doesn't involve any of the citizens. Juhn stood up and threw up his hands as he and Carthy begin to yell at each other, eventually leading to Dorugh and Max both trying to calm the two down, which didn't work. Derwitchi sat back down, beginning to feel hopeless and disappointed as he begin to scratch his hair nervously.
"If we cannot remain calm by our own selves, how could we even help calm down the people?" Max said to Dorugh
Suddenly, the yelling stopped. Everyone turned around, facing the doors as both of the doors opened widely. Then, Benjen ran through the doors and fell, trying his best to recover after a long and endless run. Max quickly got up, wondering if Benjen went crazy, believing he did if he was dumb enough to interrupt a private and important meeting held by Lord Derwitchi. 
"It's about your people," Benjen said to Derwitchi, "Y...y-y-you cannot leave this building, you're not safe out there!"
The room then grew quiet, beside Benjen's heavy breathing. The senators, Juhn, Max, and Dorugh all turned to Derwitchi, awaiting for his response.
"Pirate," Derwitchi said to Benjen, "Do you not know who I am? My people will never turn on me! Max, Dorugh, escort him out of here because I believe he has gone mad!"
Max felt disappointed in Benjen for his stupid actions, grabbing him by his arm and helping him up but Benjen knew this was too important to just give up. Benjen then pushed Max away and got closer to Derwitchi, "They know about the scarce of food and about Arnley's death!"
Derwitchi suddenly took it all serious as he looked up at Juhn and the rest. He then stood up with a worried look on his face, "If he knows about the issues then everyone all around know about it...we must leave I am not safe here!"
Juhn quickly stopped Derwitchi from leaving the room, "You cannot protect yourself all alone, you can't go out there!"
Derwitchi knew he didn't need all of his guards, he believed he was safe just with the protection from Juhn and the three others. Meanwhile, Juhn felt like he and three about pirates could protect him and four other senators against hungry mobs but for some odd reason Derwitchi had to get back to his office.
"Max, Dorugh, and Ben," Juhn said, looking out of the window, "Get your rifles loaded and your swords in reach."

The whole island of citizens verse a warrior, commander, and two other pirates with little of experience, who has to protect their leader and a few other senators. The numbers and support were not in their odds, most of them thought, but Juhn and the other protectors knew they couldn't just be a bunch of sitting ducks. They knew they have to get Derwitchi and the other senators to a more protected area, filled with Derwitchi's guards.
"There could be at least two guards outside of the doors," Juhn said, bringing out his sword.
Loaded, prepared, and eager filled up the room, Dorugh and Max both opened up the doors, being the first two to run out with their eyes wider than most and guns aimed high with their swords in reach. Dorugh then motioned Benjen and the rest that it's clear.. for now. As Juhn led the rest out, Max went out further to only find two of Derwitchi's guards dead. Both of the guards laid there, blood dripping from their chest and their weapons still in their holsters. Max examined the wounds a bit closer and noticed it wasn't a gun or sword wound...but a wound from a metal rake.
"Farmers," Max said, stepping away from the two guards, "It has already sta..."
Suddenly three farmers ran out with their blood-dripping rakes raised him, running towards Max. He then aimed his rifle at one of the farmers and fired. The smoke from his rifle blinded him for a few seconds, unable to see if he hit one. Once the smoke cleared, there were three farmers still, who quickly ambushed Max.
"Look out!"
Benjen then fired his pistol, hitting one of the farmers who was closest to Max directly in the head, impressing Derwitchi and the other senators. Then Dorugh pulled out his sword as he shot another farmer down, pushing Max out of the way. Dorugh then swung the sword at the last farmer, not even thinking that the farmer was once friends with Dorugh, he only thought of the old farmer as an enemy and traitor. Dorugh then missed the farmer as he dodged his head and slammed the long and sturdy rake into Dorugh's arm, bringing all the attention towards him as he let out a painful cry. Max then ran towards Dorugh, firing and hitting the farmer in the chest, which eventually killed him.
"It's okay," Dorugh said, staring at his completely bloody hand from just touching his wound, "Let's just get them to safety!"
Max looked at the three stripes of blood on Dorugh's arm, noticing how much critical blood he was losing. The cuts were long, wide, and deep, and Max knew they had to stop for a few to stop the bleeding but Dorugh wanted to keep moving and wait later to stop the bleeding.
"If we don't stop the bleeding now then you won't make it far," Benjen pointed out as he ripped both of his slaves off to wrap around Dorugh's arm.
Meanwhile with Benjen and Max helped with Dorugh's wounds, Juhn walked over to the deceased farmers. All three faces looked familiar, he thought as he got closer to the body. Juhn then nod his head, he was disgusted with their actions on betraying their own sides because of a scarce of food...but Juhn was also disgusted with his self for the way he handled them. He then closed the eyes of one of the farmers he killed.
"I can't believe they tried to kill us," Juhn said, wiping the blood off of his hand, "We need to keep moving before more come."

"It was the poor," Benjen said, looking at the small fallen houses and mini tents that some called home.
They decided to take a different path where Derwitchi and the other senators could not be seen. Unfortunately, they had to go into the area where most of the homeless pirates lived...where the riots and mobs were planned. Derwitchi and the other senators didn't feel safe, looking at the disgusted and destroyed buildings, where most of the poor pirates lived. Children with no clothes on stared as they went by, giving them all death stares as if they were the ones who caused them to become poor.
"We're suppose to be leading them," Benjen whispered to Max, "But they think we started this...they're blaming us for making them poor, they blamed us or probably think of us when they are force to skip a meal or two because they don't have any."
Max shook his head shamelessly, avoiding eye contact with the homeless children and their parents, "Perhaps they're envious...or maybe are still waiting for our own council to do something to...to feed them."
Dorugh looked up and stared at the starving families. Bones, complete bones with skin, Dorugh thought as he stopped in front of a little girl who carelessly ran in front of him. Eventually the rest of them stopped after noticing Dorugh stopped in front of the girl. Slowly getting down on his knees, Dorugh admired her dark black eyes. Dorugh was completely blinded, not knowing that he was setting his comrades and the senate up.
Max and Benjen volunteered to be the lookouts, feeling as if they were being watched..and in a spot where the traitors would want them at. With Dorugh and the rest being blinded, Max and Benjen noticed citizens running into abandoned buildings, running up the stairs and hiding on the roofs.
"We're being watched," Max said, placing his sweaty hand on his holster, "We need to leave!"
Max and Benjen both turned around, watch Dorugh as he handed the little girl tiny plum. The little girl then shook her head and placed the plum back in Dorugh's hands. With a confused look on his face, Dorugh finally felt butterflies in his stomach.
Suddenly they heard roars of citizens all around them. Max and Benjen both turned back around, pulling out their pistols and aiming it at the top of buildings. Juhn quickly pulled out his sword and jumped in front of the senators. Dorugh quickly grabbed the little girl and held her tightly.
"Little girl," Dorugh yelled nervously, "What have you..."
A middle aged skinny man ran out in the wide open, throwing a long wooden spear that was sharper than any of the weapons they had. The spear blew past Max, scrapping the tip of his ears and directly hitting senator West in the chest. They then heard West scream of painful agony then dropping to the ground. Max jumped back up on his feet and fired his musket, killing the murderous traitor with one shot to the chest.
"These are our people," Juhn cried as he pulled out his sword to protect Derwitchi and the rest, "Don't harm any of them!"
Dorugh looked up with a confused look on his face, suddenly distracting him from the little girl. After noticing Dorugh looking away from her, she then clinched her hard leftover teeth in Dorugh's forearm, causing him to cry painfully as he released the little girl. Even with his own people shooting and trying to kill their leaders, Dorugh was still focused on the little girl.
"Don't let the girl get away!"
Taking out another citizen, Benjen heard Dorugh's cries and noticed the little girl running towards an old tavern. Benjen, who was foolish and young, dropped his musket and pulled out his sword, running towards the old and beat down tavern the little girl ran in.

After the door shut in the tavern, the only source of light vanished. Benjen stopped in front of fallen tables, the undesirable smell of deceased bodies and other humans feces made his stomach turn. Benjen felt like the little girl thought of them all as monsters, understanding why she vanished from Dorugh's arm and ran into a disgusted tavern like this.
"I won't hurt you," Benjen said, walking towards the disgusting smell, "We're not the enemies...we're not the monsters you think we are."
Benjen then stopped, hoping to hear the little girl's soft response but the only thing he could hear was the creaking floors. Each step got louder and louder, Benjen noticed as he stood still. He knew the little girl didn't have anything that could harm him on her, resulting in the young man putting up his sword.
"I am unarmed," Benjen said to what he thought was the little girl, "You're safe in here."
Finally the creaks from the old wooden floor stopped. Benjen grinned, knowing that the little girl was just a few feet away from him, right behind him. He slowly turned around, knowing that the little girl was right behind him, a little girl that was afraid of him...and also unarmed, Benjen thought. Suddenly Benjen heard a sword being removed from a holster...and then he heard a deep voiced man yell,
"Die ye traitor!" 
It was no little girl behind as he would hope for. Instead it was a tall middle aged man with blood all over his face. Blood all over his thin beard and all over his mouth like he ate the innocent little girl. It was a  complete nightmare, Benjen thought as he watched the homeless man tackle him to the ground. Completely surprised and unarmed, Benjen took the first three punches to the face. Knowing the fourth one would be coming, Benjen quickly moved his head away from the punch, causing the homeless man to punch the wooden floor. The young fighter then headbutted the homeless man off of him, quickly throwing him into a table.
"You killed the innocent little girl," Benjen said worriedly, "You sick bastard!"
Benjen then tackled the man into a table, punching him in the face a few times before the old man kicked Benjen off of him. He then stood there, staring at the stranger as he picked up his bloody sword. The blood of an innocent little girl, Benjen thought. The blood of the sword blinded Benjen from what was in front of him; an armed and dangerous man. The homeless pirate than ran at Benjen, with his bloody sword high and his scream loud, few seconds away from killing Benjen. Benjen thought this was it for him as he closed his eyes, waiting for the exact moment for the pirate to kill him but it never happened. Suddenly over all of the screaming, he heard an arrow being released out of a cross bow. Then the screaming stopped and he heard the metal sword drop to the ground, eventually following the traitor's body too. Benjen slowly opened up his eyes, seeing the fallen body of the homeless pirate, and also seeing Spyder as he reloaded his crossbow.
"Some little girl told me about some young and handsome man getting his butt kicked by a skinny and harmless poor citizen," Spyder said, "I really couldn't tell which was which at first."
Benjen dropped to his knees, thanking Spyder dozen of times gratefully for saving his life, "This treaty...I never seen so many of our own people trying to kill their leader."
Spyder shook his head understandably and helped Benjen back up, "They're scared civilians, they know without food they can't win this war and the thoughts of losing this important bloody war can lead to betrayal from fear."
"But...."
Spyder then interrupted the young soldier, "Juhn and the rest probably need your help. You must go."
"You can't stay here...you're in a dangerous part of the area. You're also part of the council too which means you probably mean a lot to those blood-sucking traitors!"
Spyder shrugged his shoulders, his impressive wisdom or bravery never seem to surprise Benjen, "Where will you go?"
"Out of Skull Island for a little," Spyder said with a little scent of mystery, "I must see an old friend."

Staring at West's body as he gasped for his last breath of fresh air, before Juhn took him out of his misery, Dorugh couldn't think of blaming anyone else beside his self. He felt like a complete fool who costed West's innocent life, he thought as he closed West's bright blue eyes. Benjen returned back, noticing all of them surrounding West, which was a clear indicator about his bewilderment death.
"We have to get moving," Senator Carthy said, "Before anymore of us die!"
Juhn agreed with Carthy, which was unlikely, "We must get back to safety before more hear about the missing treaty...and of course more snowfall."
Dorugh felt ashamed, finally standing back on his feet, "We lost an important senator because of me...I killed so many of our own citizens...familiar faces...familiar dead faces."
"It's been a long day for all of us," Max said, gently patting Dorugh on his broad shoulder, "But we need to get the rest of the senate to safety."
Finally they resumed their path back to safety, where Derwitchi's guards and lots of other guards waited patiently for him. Juhn led the group, with Dorugh, Max, and Benjen surrounding Derwitchi, Carthy, and Senator Alkz. This time, they went towards certain territory more protective and safer, which took longer but they felt it was worth it.

Max and Benjen ran east of them, towards a group of buildings that consisted of two broken down homes, a small fruit market, and dozen of barrels filled with  beer all around the area. Juhn and Dorugh took cover to protect Derwitchi and the other senators while Max and Benjen went into unwanted territory, where anyone could hide and attack recklessly.
"I see no one so far," Benjen said worriedly, "Which could be a bad thing."
Max was upset with Benjen's actions, something that he kept quiet from the young pirate. He couldn't believe Benjen was foolish enough to change a harmless little girl while others were trying to kill them, including important people like the senators and Derwitchi. 
"This area is cleared," Benjen said, walking out of the old fruit market, "Scavengers roamed around here probably hours ago and stole the remaining fruits." 
Max ignored Benjen again, walking towards one of the abandoned houses and with a vigorous force, kicked down the door. Without letting Benjen know, Max walked inside the house. The house only had a kitchen and a room, Max checked the kitchen first. Nothing was in the broken down kitchen, so food or anything was left behind, beside a countless bottles of poison. Max then walked towards a broken bottle of poison, placing his dirty pointer finger in it and smelt it. With just a little sniff, Max knew what kind of poison it was; Geryum poison, a quick and painless poison that was used for many uses. One of the reasons, which Max was familiar with, a reason to drink this dangerous poison with a strong scent was for suicide. Max then looked up towards the half-cracked door, which led to the bedroom. Max gripped his gun with a strong grip and slowly walked into the room. Suddenly Max fell out of the room after smelling a horrible and unforgettable smell. Another smell Max was familiar with, a smell that he already smelled. The room was filled with the horrible scent of death. Max walked back into the room, the smell still bothered him, and went towards the bed. In the corner of the room that was next to the bed, laid two deceased bodies. Two dead bodies with no stab or bullet wounds, two bodies that Max identified as a starving mother and daughter. The sight of the two bodies disturbed Max, turning around quickly and released a loud sign of disturb, which Benjen heard.
"Bodies," Benjen said, standing at the door, "I can smell it from here."
Max shook his head with a mournful look on his face, "Starving mother and little daughter, they drank a bottle of poison and..." 
He couldn't continue any longer. The thought of an innocent mother and daughter starving because of the island and army he's fighting for couldn't save them, the thought with a strong image that wouldn't leave his mind for a long time. For an odd reason, Max felt responsible for their death as he kicked the wall repeatedly. 
"War," Max said angrily, "It kills millions, most are innocent people, it separates families that use to be happy together, it breaks people."
"War is just a three lettered word," Benjen said, "But for such a small word, it means so much and causes so much devastation. War changes you...it changes who you really are."
"You don't truly understand it," Max said 
Before Benjen could say anything else, Max walked out of the room, purposely bumping Benjen. He was still angry at Benjen and couldn't talking to him during this dark moment. Benjen looked out of the window and watched as Max head back to Dorugh and the rest, knowing there was something up with him. He then turned back around and looked at the two deceased bodies; the innocent daughter being held in the mother's arms, moments before their deaths. Bugs all over their bodies with their hair falling out, Benjen knew the two of them been dead for a while but yet it bothered him that no one even noticed.
"We will change this," Benjen said to the bodies as if they were still alive.
Benjen then walked out of the room, shutting the door and carved into the door. The young soldier didn't want anyone else to see what he saw, an image of war and the sour effects it has. Benjen then walked out of the abandoned house that owned by a happy mother and daughter, leaving a message on the door, "Dead family. Don't enter."

"Never thought a piece of paper would cost thousands of lives, including West," Dorugh said as he watched Max and Benjen return back.
"They're back," Juhn said calmly as he placed his bloodless sword back in his holster, "We need stop thinking about the treaty and start thinking of ways to getting them somewhere safer than this!"
Exhausted Derwitchi stood up pointing up towards the tallest building throughout Skull island, building where Derwitchi's most trusted guards would be. Up there Derwitchi believed he and the other senators could come up with a plan for his people until the Mooshu treaty could be retrieved again.
"We're not far," Derwitchi said in an exhausting tone, "My guards are probably waiting at the doors for me!"
"Aye," Dorugh said as he begin to walk towards the tall castle, "Let's get moving then."
"Agreed," Carthy cried, "Before this monstrous civilians kill anymore of us!"
Juhn suddenly released a soft laugh, "They haven't always been monsters. The ones who're leading this monsters turned them into this. They're starving and desperate...and when you're desperate, you do stupid things to survive."
"Watch your tongue, Warrior!" Senator Carthy said, "It's a damn shame you aren't smart enough to understand what we go through. It's not only creating and passing laws, it's more than that! Something a man who's not even part of the pirate army but supporting us with other fighters called "warriors" wouldn't ever understand!"
Juhn could of argued more with Carthy, explaining him that the Warriors are more than just fighters but peace makers, protectors, and more...but he knew senators like him were too stubborn. 
"Let's forget Mr. Carthy that they don't want my head on a spike or my body hanged," Juhn said calmly with a huge grin on his face.

As they begin walking, Benjen stopped for a quick moment to talk to Max. The young lad knew something was up with him, after realizing he didn't speak for a long time, which Benjen thought was unusual for Max.
"You look mad," Benjen whispered to Max as he got closer, "Is everything alright?"
Max took a deep breath and glanced over at Benjen, "You could of got yourself or others killed!"
Suddenly Benjen stopped walking, which eventually stopped Max too, "Excuse me?"
Soon the rest noticed Max and Benjen stopped, which caused them to stop too. Juhn and Dorugh both knew that it wasn't smart to stop in the middle of a populated street, when safety was just a few blocks away. Windows from houses started to open, causing the freezing air and snow to flow into their houses. Doors all around started to open up slightly as if citizens in Skull island were first to find the prizes. Juhn started to realize that they were being watched again. Meanwhile Benjen and Max continued to argue, obviously picking the wrong time to argue.
"You ran to chase a little girl while people were attacking us," Max said angrily, "Have you lost your mind or even thought about it?"
Juhn felt like they were in the wild, with their thick and dark blood dripping from deep cuts, and surrounded by blood thirsty beasts that heard every single drop of blood that hit the hard ground. Juhn quickly signaled for Dorugh to control his two men as he pulled out his sword, slowly glancing over each buildings. Derwitchi and the other two senators watched as houses begin to light up with torches, more and more doors slowly opening up.
"Someone need to control those two," Derwitchi said nervously, referring to Max and Benjen.
Dorugh quickly broke up their argument, helping them snap back into reality, where danger was everywhere, "Torches are being lit in houses, what do you think is going on?"
Riots, Max and Benjen both knew what was going down as they pulled out their weapons. Dorugh ran back to the senate to protect them, Max and Benjen eventually followed.
"We need to go now," Senator Carthy cried 
Suddenly four pirates ran out of their houses with a torch in one hand and a blazing hot sword in the other. Max and Benjen both quickly jumped in front of the four pirates, waving their swords ferociously and bravely, but not scaring the pirates away.
"Go," Max said calmly, "We can handle them!"
Juhn shook his head and signaled for Dorugh to follow him, which was tough for him to leave two of his closest friends alone in the streets against blood thirsty pirates. Yet for some odd reason Dorugh knew they could handle this and followed Juhn and the rest back to safety, where Derwitchi's dozen of guards waited for his arrival.

Max and Benjen stood in front of four angry pirates with blood all over their face, slowly dripped on their torn and filthy clothes. Luckily Max nor Benjen was afraid of them, as they stood tall with their swords high up.
"You guys don't have to do this," Max said calmly to the familiar pirates, "We'll overcome all of this, I swear on that!"
One of them laughed, "Thousands of crops will die with the cold. Mooshu was our last chance and ye all lost it!"
Benjen, filled with nothing but eager and confidence, stepped in front of Max with his sword high, "We have a few months left till winter will arrive...we just need a few weeks to get the treaty back!"
The stranger chuckled, revealing nothing but one golden tooth in his dry mouth, "This Island will ready lost ye all trust!"
He then swung his sword at Benjen, completely missing him with his strike. Benjen grinned and ran towards the traitor, swinging at his head but missed all his chances. Max quickly joined in just as soon as the other three traitors joined in, easily stabbing one of them in the stomach and out of the back.
"We can still survive," Max said, jumping back as he dodged one of their swings, "All of us! We can easily get by this!"
But the remaining thee pirates were too stubborn to listen as they continued to attack Benjen and Max.
The golden tooth pirate was knocked to the ground by Benjen but not killed with the help from another traitor pirate. Benjen quickly dropped his head and felt the sword from the other pirate cut single pieces of hair off his head. Before the young lad could make his move, the golden tooth pirate kicked Benjen in the back of his leg, causing him to fall to the ground. Meanwhile, Max watched as Benjen was having trouble but was unable to do anything due to fighting the other pirate. Max endlessly dodged every swing by the pirate but yet couldn't even get his sword close to the enemy.
"Ye fool," The golden tooth pirate said as he grabbed Benjen and pulled him to the ground.
He then pulled out a rope and without a single thought, began to choke Benjen mercifully. The other pirate watched Benjen potentially take his last breath. Gasping for air, Benjen managed to get out words towards Max, "h-h-help!"
The cry from Benjen suddenly distracted Max, causing him to turn around to watch as the pirates slowly kill his somewhat child. Max then bit his lips out of anger, giving the pirates a murderous look as he walks towards them but soon he would be no help as the third pirate knocked Max on the ground.
"Well," One of the pirates said, "Look who we have now!"
Hearing Benjen gasping for what could be his last breath of air felt like a spear to the heart for Max, as he stood there hopeless and harmless. He begin to beg to for Benjen's life but the other two pirates begin to laugh, starting to repeatedly kicking Max with their hard and bloody boots.

Suddenly one of the pirates stopped kicking Max and fell to the ground, following a loud shot. Then the other pirate stopped and pulled out his sword, aiming at a bald-headed and old pirate, Dorugh. Wiping the blood from his mouth, Max quickly jumped and attacked the distracted pirate, easily slicing his throat and throwing him to the ground.
"Release the boy," Dorugh said, aiming at the golden tooth pirate who still had Benjen in his arm.
Finally he stopped choking Benjen and placed a sharp bladed knife at his throat and started to threaten Dorugh and Max. Luckily the threats weren't good enough and Max, who still had the murderous look on his face, ran towards the golden tooth pirate and tackled him to the ground. The pirate then begged for mercy but Max ignored it and started to choke him until his face turned dark as the night and his gasp for air end. Max then ripped the golden tooth out of the pirate's mouth and placed it in his pocket, leaving the cold body there on the street for others to see.
"You came back," Benjen said, still managing to breath, "Where's Lord Derwitchi and the rest?"
Dorugh turned around and pointed at the large castle, "They're in good hands now but we need to get there fast. Ser Spyrder of the council informed us hundreds of more will march down here. We all need to get back to safety fast and think of something!"
"Of course," Benjen said, picking up his sword, "Need to go quick!"
Max, who was silent for a while, walked up to Dorugh and placed his cold and bloody hand on his shoulder, "You came back for us, even after I almost got all of us killed."
"You always been stubborn," Dorugh said, "Let's just get back before your stubbornness gets me killed."

Dorugh, Max, and Benjen ran towards the door of Derwitchi's castle, pounding repeatedly on the doors. Citizens with flaming torches begin to fill everywhere in front of Derwitchi's castles. Benjen and Max both pulled out their swords, with Dorugh still banging on the hard doors.
"Quit banging on your king's door you pathetic fool!" One of Derwitchi's most reliable and strongest guard said
Suddenly Dorugh heard screaming from behind and turned around. Max struck one of the citizens across the chest and kicked him off the stairs and into the crowds. Others soon started to climb up the long stairs, until Max and Benjen took them out with their swords.
"Walmund open these gates," Dorugh yelled, "It's me, Dorugh, I have returned with Max and Ben!"
Rocks suddenly flew past Dorugh's head and nailed the doors. Dorugh, who was already furious, turned around and pulled out his pistol and fired into the crowd, instantly killing the one who threw the rocks. Then more rocks started to get thrown, nearly hitting Max.
"This is madness," Max cried, taking out any pirate
Finally the doors opened up and a tall greasy haired man with armor all over his body pulled out his sword and instantly attacked the crowd. Walmund, who had a deep scar across his face from and into his left eye, where his eye patch laid. One of the strongest but also grumpiest guard for Derwitchi, he was one of his most reliable guard with tales, good and bad, throughout Skull island. Walmund swung his wide and large sword at one of the victims, instantly chopping his whole body in two. He continued to slay down Derwitchi's own citizens until Dorugh grabbed him and turned him towards the entrance
"Show respect for your king you worthless cowards," Walmund cried as he took out another person who ran towards him.
Finally the gate shut and left hundreds of angry pirates outside, filled with hatred and determination to take down their own king. Soon the area was filled with only furious and bloody thirsty citizens, with violent chants; "Make our king bleed with his traitor blood!"

"They want your head," Senator Carthy cried, "What should we do?"
Lord Derwitchi, Senator Carthy, Juhn, Dorugh, Max, Benjen, Spyder, and other senators remained in the main hall until they could come up with a plan. Walmund remained at the doors with four other guards, hearing the hateful words from the people outside of the building.
"We're missing someone from this council," Senator Sud pointed out
Spyders approached the missing council chair, "Sir Stannis went out on his own to look for that treaty. Hopefully he'll return back safely!"
Derwitchi or anyone else on the council wasn't worried about where Stannis went. Although others like Benjen, Dorugh, and Juhn questioned his absence and his position in the council.
"They're animals out there," One of the guards whispered to Walmund
Walmund looked down at the tiny guard, who had long blonde hair. He snickered and turned back around, quickly trying to avoid even looking at the guard, "Do not talk to me you little girl."
Derwitchi walked over towards the round table, where only senators and other important members would be seated at. Dorugh walked over towards the table with Juhn, but was pushed away since he was not a member on the council.
"Our army surrounded the mobs and are trying everything to calm them down," Juhn said to Lord Derwitchi
Derwitchi, who didn't seem as stressed as the rest, shrugged his shoulders carelessly and demanded for a cup of wine. Walmund angrilily walked over and poured wine in his cup and walked back to the doors, murmuring hateful words under his breath that was directed towards the senate.
"My lord," Spyder said calmly, "Do you even have a plan to calm down your people?"
Benjen looked over after hearing Spyder's soft voice, with a questionable look on his face. He tried to walk towards him after remembering what he said back in the old tavern, but was quickly stopped by two of Derwitchi's guards. 
"Council members only," The guard said
After countless and countless plans from Juhn and the rest of the senate, Lord Derwitchi still haven't said a single word or even mention a good plan to calm down his own people.
"Perhaps we fill their anger up with fear," Spyder said, staring down Derwitchi, "Fear is the biggest enemy of them all; easily defeating anger and much more."
Lord Derwitchi shook his head but still remained calm as if his own people outside of his own building weren't trying to cut off his head. The rest of the senate and even his guards were more terrified for their own lives than Derwitchi feared for his.
"My lord this is no disrespect but are you not scared for your own life?" Spyder said, "These people want your head on a spike!"
Derwitchi slammed his fist hard on the table and jumped out of his chair, "They are my people! Just like you all and our armies, they're suppose to serve me and obey whatever I say or do! For God sake, we own one of the largest army throughout the spiral with the Warriors right next to our side. Those animals out there tried to kill all of us and you want me to come up with a plan to calm them down and join back as if they never tried to kill any of us. What about Senator West's life?"
The whole room remained silent, with the loud and hateful chants outside of the building being the only thing anyone could hear. They soon realized that Lord Derwitchi was scared for his life but really...Derwitchi felt just like the way he did when he woke up, relax and calm.
"We need to go out there soon," Juhn Woun said calmly, "You need to give them a speech and if they try to attack, Dorugh or I will command our armies to calm down the citizens. The day is getting darker but more importantly the day will get colder."
"You must show no fear no matter what," Spyder said to Derwitchi as he walked towards the doors, "If they can sense your fear, they will take advantage of it."
Derwitchi stood at the doors, with the guards waiting for his approval to open up the doors. The senate started to give him advice constantly, which was difficult for him to understand since they were all trying to talk over each other. Finally Derwitchi raised his hand calmly, to signal for everyone to be quiet. The room soon became quiet, and Derwitchi looked over at Walmund for him to open up the doors.
The doors slowly opened up, and the loud and violent cries from the people grew louder and louder until Derwitchi and the rest of the senate was seen, which made the yelling even more louder and violent. Max looked over at Dorugh, who took a deep breath and tried his best to stop his shaking.
"This is dangerous," he said to Dorugh, "Are you ready for this?"
Dorugh looked over at Max and tried his best to not look terrified, "I'm not but I know I have to be. None of us can show fear."

Walmund and a dozen of other guards were first to walk out, with their swords out and their armor on tight. The citizens started to throw hard rocks at them, with the rocks bouncing off their armor.
"Give us Derwitchi's head," One of the people shouted, "Before he kills this island with all of us!"
Citizens mercilessly grabbed one of Derwitchi's guards and pulled him into the crowd of hungry and blood thirsty animals known as the desperate citizens of Skull island. The cry from the guard soon vanished just like he did as he was pulled completely into the crowd, never to be seen again.
"Calm yourself!" Walmund said as he struck someone and kicked his body back into the crowd.
Derwitchi was surrounded by his guards, completely protected from anything his own people had. Although soon, he demanded for the guards to let him by so he can talk to his own people. Juhn and the other senators thought Derwitchi lost it since he kept demanding for Walmund to get out of his way.
"This is insane," Max said, looking at the endless crowds of people, "There's like thousands of them just here!"
Dorugh noticed another person climb up and running towards of the senators. He pulled out his pistol and fired, easily nailing the citizen in the back of the head. Three more climbed up and ran towards Benjen. He looked into their eyes and saw nothing but hate and danger, quickly jumping in front of Senator Carthy and striking one of them clean across the face. Dorugh and Max ran over towards the scene and easily taking out of the other two from behind.
"This was a bad idea," Benjen shouted, "There's way too many!"
The ruthless citizens climbed up from the left side, where Max and Dorugh was suppose to guard but were too busy taking out enemies from the right side. They grabbed one of the senators and threw him into the crowd, where he instantly met his death.
"We need to get Derwitchi back inside," Walmund commanded as he sliced a hungry slave in two, "These people lost their damn minds!"
Juhn agreed with Walmund, "I agree!"
But Lord Derwitchi disagreed as he manage to get past his guards and stood in front of thousands of lives who wanted him dead. The yelling and cries from others stopped as they all looked at Derwitchi, who stood there calmly. Standing there, Derwitchi had no idea if he would walk to his bed at the end of the day dead or alive. He ignored all of the violent screams as he looked over at the spikes that stood tall, with West and other senator's heads there, but he still showed no fear. 
Dorugh ran next to Derwitchi, "I can command our army for them to take them out if needed!"
Derwitchi only said one word, his only word he said ever since he walked out towards his potential death. He nodded his head and calmly said a simple word but yet was filled with questions, "Don't."
From that moment he looked into the eyes of thousands of innocent lives that were suffering from fear and hunger, and he finally understood who to blame. Lord Derwitchi realized who was responsible for all of their lives and at fault for them. He took a few steps closer to the crowd and potentially closer to death. Juhn sent the rest of the senate inside for safety, and then he walked next to Derwitchi. Dorugh, Max, and Benjen walked next to Derwitchi and aimed at the crowd. Eventually the crowd started to calm down, anxious and curious on what their king had to say.
Derwitchi looked all around the crowds, seeing nothing but disgusted, angry, and worried citizens. Finally he knew how to control them all and also how to unite them all together, "For months and perhaps years we all lived on this wonderful island with protection from our armies of people who were just known as pirates. Know we have one of the largest armies with strong men who's willing to die for all of us! Now you all must of forgot who kept you all safe for his long. The Mooshu treaty is perhaps and still is one of our most important written agreements. One of our most trusted Warrior was suppose to deliver this before the cold air arrives but was killed by who knows. Luckily we all who took this treaty and left all of us killing each other and giving up. This crew who's been causing trouble for weeks and has the treaty in their arms will be found and punished for their actions! Sanchi Sameria and the rest of his disgusted friends will be punished for what they have done to us!"
Suddenly the crowds dropped their weapons and torches and started to cheer for Lord Derwitchi, even though he wasn't done with his speech. Finally the amazed crowd became quiet again. Lord Derwitchi who had a mysterious smile on his face, walked closer to the people.
"Not only we will punish Sanchi and his crew," Derwitchi said as the crowds resumed being loud, "Not only we will get that treaty back, get thousands and maybe millions of crops delivered here...but we will also capture a formal council member."
The crowd quickly became confused as Derwitchi paused for a moment. Spyder walked closer to Derwitchi with a confused but also worried look on his face.
"We will find Stannis, who's been missing during tough times like this," Derwitchi said as he slowly raised his hand up in the air, "We will find this traitor who has been seen with this traitor crew, and we...will..hang..Stannis for all of his actions!"
The crowds of people begin to cheer even louder than before with positive chants towards Derwitchi and the army. The excitement couldn't be contained as the citizens of Skull island released all of it with hopes and desired for catching the traitors and most importantly, getting the treaty to Mooshu. Juhn and the rest stood there, completely amazed on how Derwitchi changed a deadly crowd, that wanted him dead, into a crowd that completely supported him. Meanwhile as the crowd chant happily, Spyder stood there with a worried look on his face. He knew he would have to leave Skull Island as soon as can be. He knew he would have to warn the only person he serves beside Derwitchi. He knew he would have to go out and warn Stannis about the new bounty on his head.
"This is amazing," Spyder said to Benjen, "How power can easily control the brains of thousands with hopes on finding a group of pirates that haven't been seen in days."
Benjen looked up at Spyder and noticed the worried look on his face. He was the only worried one all around him. Benjen looked at one of the most secretive person throughout the whole Spiral and asked him quietly; "What do you know that others don't?"
"A lot," Spyder said worriedly, "A lot that you don't want to know."

The Warrior "Back Home" S1 E17

Sanchez, Jason, and Moresco continued to run like they were being chased by a blood thirsty beast, frequently looking back to see if anyone was on their trail. Jumping over fallen branches, dodging huts created by othr creatures, and making sure they were invisable to Deacon and the enemies.
"We're close," Jason said tiredly, "I can see smoke, probably from Samuel cooking up something...for his self!"
Even though the two known each other for years, with countless memories of saving each other, Jason couldn't help but hate Samuel for his selfish and disgusted actions towards Sanchi and the rest. He believed that it wasn't right for Samuel to be a selfish man and make Anthony and Chun to gather gold and jewels just for a couple of days staying in his market, and of course the pleasure of Samuel not giving Sanchi up to the armadas. Although, Jason admired Anthony and Chun going out determined to search for gold to ensure their stay, believing how powerful and reliable Sanchi's crew was.
"I actually apologize for him and his selfish actions and of course dangerous missions that he calls "simple" that he's giving to your crew," Jason said to Sanchez.
Sanchez nodded his head, believing that his "crew" can actually do anything and is up for any challenges, of course coming from his own mouth. He wasn't afraid of any men who wore armor for cowardly protection, believing pirates and other scavengers were braver than any men who has to wear armor.
"Samuel is a coward," Sanchez said, scratching blood off his holster, "Cowards like him will easily betray anyone, which is also why I believe if Anthony and Chun gets anything to pay him...we don't give him any of it."
Jason never had the thought of Samuel being a coward or even betraying him. He just thought the best and the only option to keep him and his daughters safe, something he believes that Sanchez wouldn't be able to understand.
"Once Sanchi wakes up...if he wakes up, are you guys gonna leave us and head back to Mooshu?"
Sanchez looked back at Moresco, who was trailing behind them, looking completely useless but yet still had a large smile on his face. Then he looked around the area, looking at the green and healthy trees and of course the bright blue sky but yet Sanchez still didn't feel safe living in this kind of place. Something about what lurks in these deep woods and the people living around them just made Sanchez feel bothered.
"It's not up to me. I'm no captain, Sanchi is and I go wherever he goes and if he wants to go all the way to Mooshu, I'll be right there by his side." Sanchez said, thinking about the Mooshu treaty.
Jason chuckled, "Is it really about listening to your captain? I heard endless stories about member of a captain's crew betraying their captains just like that! What about these treaty for Mooshu?"
Sanchez surprisingly looked up at Jason, noticing the grin on his face, "The treaty..."
"The treaty," Jason said, giving Sanchez a smart look, "The treaty that can give Skull Island and Derwitchi's men the upper edge in this war with the help from Mooshu or make them weak if they get into Kane's hands. It's sad that a little piece of paper with writing on it can make a huge difference in this deadly war for freedom."
Sanchez didn't know what to do with the treaty, he didn't understand much about war or why thousands of men on Kane's side are dying  just to prevent freedom from anyone else. He hoped and believed at the same time that Sanchi will know what to do with the treaty.
"We need to get back," Sanchez said, "Hoping Stannis will be there so I can bust his skull wide open!"

Sanchez, Jason, and Moresco was close to their temporary home, coming up on a view that none of them could forget. The beautiful blue sky slowly changing to an orange sky, with the beautiful and thick clouds running into the distance, Sanchez noticed. Below them was the village, watched as each villager collected their belongings from outside and taking them inside, after killing their fires and of course their meals. Sanchez felt like he was a god above the village, being able to see what was happening anywhere. With a big smile, Sanchez pointed at a little house next to a disgusted market, showing Moresco where they were staying at.
"Me master live down there!" Moresco yelled, jumping in place excitedly. 
Meanwhile for Jason, he noticed a familiar ship coming towards the docks, getting the excellent view to see the short captain of the ship a mile away. After a few minutes of staring at the captain, he noticed his daughter, Amy, coming out just to stand right next to him. Jason could no longer hold his tears as his eyes became flooded, Sanchez noticed.
"She made it back," Jason said, wiping the tears away, "She made it back!"
Sanchez smiled, patting the proud father on his back, "Let's get down there to see them."

"Never been so excited to see land," One-Eyed Jack said, patting Anthony's back, "We did it kid! Now me must show ye a tavern with good drinks...and good women!"
Anthony couldn't finish his sentence as Amy got between the two, pushing the one-eyed pirate away from Anthony. Amy then gave Anthony another kiss to prove to Jack that he is taken. Jack smiled and turned back around, approaching Chun, who was next to Jack's crew to make sure they didn't remove any gold from the chests. In a distances, Anthony and Amy both heard Jack's and Chun's conversation, "For victory, me and ye gon go to a nice tavern, beautiful women that make ye feathers stand up once ye see'em!"

"You were so brave," Amy said, feeling like she was living in a fantasy with a hero named Anthony.
Anthony had a little smile on his face, somewhat being grateful they made it off the ship. Although, he really didn't feel like a hero due to the fact that he was getting his face smashed in when a little bomb, that he didn't even make, blew up and pretty much killing the captain. It also bothered him that he almost got Amy and the rest of the Jack's crew killed, if it wasn't for Chun's bribe and speech. The young lad didn't feel like a hero, but he didn't want to kill Amy's fantasy, even though if it makes him feel like a coward.
"Let's just be happy that we made it out," Anthony said, bring Amy closer, "You get to see your father and sister too...we survived another day."
When Anthony, Amy, and Chun finally made it back to then town, where they can finally the houses, Jason and Beth were waiting for them. Proud father, who could hardly stop his tears and with a big smile on his face, begin to run towards Amy. Beth eventually followed Jason, both of them grabbing Amy, and holding her tightly as if she's been gone for months. Sanchez and the rest eventually made it to the scene, admiring Anthony's bruises and scars.
"I would hate to see the other guy," Sanchez said, placing his cold hand on Anthony's bruised up shoulder.

As the reunion was filled with happiness and joy, filled with laughter and tears of joys, it would soon end after hearing a dreadful voice, a voice from a man everyone, including his once-was best friend Jason, despised. 
"Few hours late," Samuel said, who was too concerned about the gold to even check on Amy, "Where's me treasure?"
Sanchez then jumped in front of the treasure, blocking it from Samuel. Sanchez, who was much taller and in better shape, made Samuel look like a little pudgy kid. Although Samuel didn't see it like that, he believed he was the boss of them all, even Sanchi.
"You didn't do a damn thing to earn all of that treasure," Sanchez said, getting into Samuel's face, "Why should we even give you a small portion when we can take all this, get a ship, and get out of this dump?"
Samuel's face quickly turned pale but he wasn't going to back down, "Ye want to risk picking up your unconscious man?"
Sanchez remain speechless, slowly backing away from Samuel, "We had a deal and if we cannot come to an agreement, I will make sure the armadas will find ye all! I could of sold ye like slaves to them, and get so much profit I can probably own this whole entire "dump" as ye called it!"
Sanchez knew Samuel was right as he backed away from him and the treasure. Samuel then giggled as he checked the treasure, "There's only a enough gold in here to get ye a decent-shaped ship!"
Jack and his men then picked up the chest and brought it back to Samuel's market, leaving Sanchez and the rest behind, speechless and also defeated. It was the beginning of a great and small reunion, eventually ended in the same exact spot, where the chest was taken and the torches eventually went out, leaving everyone in the dark. Chun and Moresco was first to head back to shelter, as the heavy wind and cold air eventually defeated them. Jason and Amy then took Beth back to as she begin to shiver endlessly, leaving Sanchez and Anthony all alone and speechless.
"Once Sanchi wakes up, we'll get that gold back and leave," Anthony said, trying his best to make Sanchez feel better.
Defeated Sanchez just shrugged his shoulders, "I'm not a leader like Sanchi...I let Samuel talk me down and take what you fought for. Then I caught Sanchi's own father with the armadas...if Sanchi was in my shoes, Samuel and Stannis would both be punished and we would be gone already but that's not the case. We're lost without Sanchi."
Anthony didn't believe any of Sanchez's nonsense. He knows Sanchi is coming out of the coma, believing that all of them will have a big purpose in the war. Anthony believed that Sanchi and Sanchez were both important, since they have one of the most important treaties for both sides. Anthony knew that this wasn't the end of their journey, but the beginning. 

Back at the house, Beth was sitting by the fire, trying her best to get warm again. Although she wasn't in her assigned house, she was in the smallest house, where Sanchi laid unconscious. She placed warm towels on Sanchi's forehead and also placed thick blankets across his body, to get him warm. She sat there, in an uncomfortable and hardly stable wooden chair, being right by Sanchi's side.
"You don't have to be up all night by his side," Sanchez said quietly, quickly closing the door, "You need some rest."
Beth smiled but didn't speak to Sanchez, being a bit too shy to even wink at him. Sanchez understood how shy she was, compared to Amy who would usually speak her mind more than most. Luckily shyness didn't change his opinion on Beth, he still believed she was one of the most beautiful girls he ever laid eyes on, which was the main reason why he came inside.
"You need your beauty sleep," Sanchez said, sitting on the hard and cold floor but it was right next to her, "Beautiful ladies like you need to sleep."
One of Sanchez's weakest points was not only making important decisions, but it was also hitting on females...females he was in love with. Even though for most of his life he lived with two females, talking to beautiful women like Beth was never his strong suite but somehow, it worked with a very shy girl like Beth.
"You're too kind," Beth said with a smile, "I wish there were more boys like you."
Sanchez chuckled as he stood up in front of Beth, "I'm no boy...but thank you!"
He then looked into her eyes, feeling a connection he never had with a woman before. He felt a connection with her as she looked back at him, with a gorgeous smile. He didn't know what else to say, completely going speechless from her beauty, but he wasn't the only one who felt the connection. 
"Mr. Sanchez," Beth said smoothly, "Everything okay?"
Sanchez laughed softly, "It's just...you look like a lady I would see in my dreams...a type that I don't deserve."
Beth smiled, grabbing both of Sanchez's hands, "What do I deserve than?"
She then stood up, a few inches away from Sanchez's face. Sanchez believed beautiful ladies like herself deserved more than just a pirate, but a king or god, believing that Beth looked like a beautiful blonde goddess. 
"You deserve a god or a king," Sanchez said as he got closer to Beth
"I don't think so," Beth said, getting closer to Sanchez until there was no room left between them, "I think I will be satisfied by having you."
Sanchez then grabbed Beth's beautiful face and begin kissing her endlessly. He felt like he was living in a dream, finally receiving a chance with Beth. He was completely in love with her as the two fell to the floor, where Beth started to remove her clothes. Sanchez felt the immediate impact from cupid, as he didn't let go of Beth from his fear of losing her. Just from being with Beth, Sanchez lost the thought of Stannis or even losing the treasure, at this moment he didn't care. The two continued to make love endlessly through the night, where no one could see or stop them.
