    Betrayal and Injury

    Candace slammed her telescope closed on her palm with a snap, hissing. Dawn had broken, the fog of night just lifting when the cry came from her spotter, high above in the crow’s nest. There was no mistaking the ships that closed in on her now and there was nowhere left to hide. She had gambled and lost and now would have to fight for her life to avoid paying the price of crossing Black Bette.

    All around the small crew scrambled, preparing swords and canon balls and hiding treasure but there was a panicky feel to the motions. Bette had snuck up on them in the middle of the night, the black sails of her ships hiding their approach and now they were closing in like sharks circling bait. Candace knew it would all be over by noon. She cursed, smashing her fist on the rail, calling for her sword, swallowing the bile that rose in her throat.

    It had all been too easy, she now realized. Much too easy to slip away in the middle of the night, untie the ropes and slide out into the darkness after midnight, leaving the sleepy town behind. But everyone knew Bette owned the black of night, Bette was never caught sleeping and to betray her was to suffer certain death.

    She had seen Bette nail the tongues of her rivals to the head of the dark ship, drag her victims in the swells of her wake, throw grown men overboard to drown. She reduced strong warriors to begging, sniveling piles at her feet and laughed at their tears.

    Candace thought back to the night she hatched her plan, the night Jodie cunningly convinced her that leaving was her only option. That death was waiting for her if she stayed.

    They had been in the dark recesses of the smoky, dank bar, most of the crew too drunk to walk straight. Captain Porter was at her table with her inner circle, ignoring everyone around her in that way she had. That way of appearing relaxed and at ease… when in reality, she was coiled like a spring, ready to strike at the first sign of danger.

    Bette’s focus was on the group at the table, a large cup of wine in her hand. She was listening to a story, the laughter coming at the end as the storyteller told the punchline, her table roaring with glee. The mood was high, the day to come would be filled with selling of treasure and a new adventure would be plotted. They were old friends, having grown up together, working hard to build the wealth and position they now shared.

    1. Hi BK,

      We have to thank a boring conference for this new story, so thank you boring conference!!!!

      I am so hooked already, so different from your other stories!

      Bette as a badass captain, owner of the sea at night, no one messes with her! Surrounded by the gang with their own specialty and absolutely devotion to her. Each with their own specific qualities and which I find so appropriate.

      And of course Candace and Jodie will be there. Candace so stupid as to literally screw up her life by getting stirred up by Jodie, a jealous bitch who thinks she can keep Bette as a friend. I have a feeling that we haven’t gotten rid of Jodie for a while.

      And then of course Lady Christina and the greatest jerk there is in the world, Lord Eric Bates. I am very curious what Bette has in store for him. Lady Christina is not one to be taken over by and she immediately made an impression on her first meeting with Bette. Bette is impressed, already felt the first spark and will fall in love with her, although she will fight against it. After all, she’s a badass and used to hiding her emotions.

      There is one thing I want to highlight and that is this one when Bette asked what was in the mug she drank and Tina’s answer: “I was all out of crushed souls, so I used dashed dreams instead…”

      “Ah, that’s what the aftertaste is….” Bette looked into the bottom of her now empty mug and glanced up to catch the amused expression on the blonde’s face and she laughed then snorted, making them both chuckle.

      That was so hilarious, it shows that in addition to being caring, Tina also has a sense of humor despite her position.

      This really is a great start to what I suspect is a heck of a story!

      Thank you, take care of yourself and have a nice weekend!

        Yes Jodie will be around for awhile, I have plans for her :))
        I wanted this to be different from the other stories and I did not have access to the ones I had started BUT I did have my ipad so I wrote the first part of this and then kept going.
        Glad you like it and appreciate all your input and dedication to my writings.
        BK

    2. I read this story riding in a car on the turnpike in Maine with my mouth hanging open. How is it possible to have created this tale while attending a boring conference? Like others have commented – we need to thank whoever bored you into deciding to write this. I love how all of our favorite and not do favorite characters are effortlessly woven into your story. Shane as First Mate. Dana as the Archer and Alice as the Whisperer. Excellent! And of course you included Candace and mouthy Eric. Hahahahahah. Oh Eric you will pay dearly for having harmed Christina! Once again your dialogue is so rich. I am copying Bibi here but this is my favorite as well:

      “Christina smiled despite herself. “I was all out of crushed souls, so I used dashed dreams instead…”“Ah, that’s what the aftertaste is….” Bette looked into the bottom of her now empty mug and glanced up to catch the amused expression on the blonde’s face and she laughed then snorted, making them both chuckle.“

      Tina is so witty and clever and Bette is already very smitten. As is Tina. Tina meticulously tends to Bettes wounds and cares for her as no one ever has before. Their connection is timeless even on a ship at sea. It is only a matter of time. Jodie will undoubtedly cause trouble and attempt to harm Tina. But to that I say time to walk that plank Jodie. Join Candace. Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me. More please.

        It was a conference on quality for services (yawn) and I was able to get CEUs but they basically ready from a power point which we all had copies of and I didn’t know anyone there so instead of networking and making new connections like a good professional I dove into the seven seas. LOL.
        You are so right – it is only a matter of time for our two ladies to finally realize what everyone else will see around them. Walking the plank may be too tame for Jodie… thanks for taking time to comment!

    3. Hey BK,

      Like Bibi said – the next time you get bored – think of us!!!

      So Bad Ass Captain Bette – awesome my friend.

      Great characterizations – they come alive on the page

      I wouldn’t want to mess with any of them

      Your visualizations are just terrific – thank you

      I can feel the wind in my hair & the smell of the sea & the also the smell of fear!!

      Can see Bette spitting orders & the red rage on her face with Candy Ass & her betrayal

      Not to be gross – BUT – I would have liked Candy Ass to have gotten gutted!!!! She died waaaaaaay to quickly & without much pain!!!!!!!

      Could you gut Jodi instead????? Or walk the plank with sharks all around????????????? PLEASE???????

      Naturally the old joke about Eric & his name – how very appropriate!!!

      Ah, and Bette is going to make Eric SUFFER!!!!!!!!!! YES

      “I have a tongue, Captain. And I know how to use it…” from Lady Christina – WOW!!!!!!!! What an indication of things to COME!!!!!!

      Bette doesn’t know it yet, but this Lady Tina is her equal & she’s gonna HOOK that CAPTAIN of hers!! Natch, they’ll fall in love – both fighting it in the beginning, but finding a way to make it work

      And Tina just being so gentle with B when she was stitching up her hand wound – very special

      Just terrific my friend. Honestly can’t wait for the next chapter!
      Do you have another conference this week so you can write?????

      Stay well & get goin’ – you’ve got chapters tp write!!!!

      Love it!!!

      Collins

      • Collins,
        U need help girl!! I had to hollah when you asked BK

        Could you gut Jodi instead????? Or walk the plank with sharks all around????????????? PLEASE???????

        I think Lady Tee’s inner thoughts spilled out b4 she could hold ‘em in when she was asked by Captain B after first laying eyes on her if she could speak and replies, “I have a tongue, Captain. And I know how to use it…” Geeze, Louise!!! Cap is gonna get one surprise with this “innocent” (???) flower.

        I’m gonna try to reach Jacky, The WebMaster to see if emojis can be restored after the transfer to the new Server. So much of our commentary could be simplified, knowing that we all will obviously have much to say as this tug boat drifts along

      • Collins
        I like your play on words with hooking the Captain, I see what you did there!
        I actually have a four day Autism conference starting tomorrow AND it’s on zoom so I will have my personal and my work computer on hand ….. but I do need to pay attention to some of the lectures since they will help me in my career.
        I do have chapters to write but so do you Miss Cliff Hanger…. get busy!
        BK

      • Nothing better than falling in love on the water…. minus the arrogant Lord and the scheming girlfriend and all the swords and knives and poison that is! Thanks for commenting!

    4. Oh I love Pirate stories! Not just since “Pirate Movie”, one of the first movies I was allowed to go to without my parents, only with my bff. A matinée with Kristy McNichol and Christopher Atkins.

      Anyway I’m already hooked (pun intended) to your new story, BK. Now you’re writing comedy as well? Creativity seems to flow in abundance with you! Amazing.
      Love the setting of this story. Somewhere on the sea, some fantasy land but a lot of familiar characters. Dana, the Archer, loyal First Mate Shane and blue eyed virgin Lady Christina. I’d like to see that she gets a chance to kick Lord Eric’s butt for all the things he did to her and her family.

      I’d say if you happen to go to more boring conferences or meetings next week, I would love to read more of the adventures of Black Bette and the fair Lady Christina. But only after reading more on Tina and the inherited land or Tina and Bette being able to adopt Rosie and their journey to New Orleans in search of Boo.

      Thank you for some alt-universe of Tibette. Just what my doctor would prescibe in times of a looming second (part)lockdown.

      Stay safe, stay healthy and happy.

        • Of course, she’s all Kennard wants for his child. A successful, good looking partner who will cherish his daughter, have more than enough means to support her and their children and thereby be a worthy heir to the Kennard castle and family land.
          The King – as I understand – is still a boy and was manipulated by Eric and false counselors to dictate Lady Christina’s marriage. I’m sure it will be revoked. Pirate stories need a happy ending ;-)

        You went old school with the Christopher Atkins and Kristy McNichol reference! Curly hair for days! I had forgotten all about that movie! I was reading George RR Martin’s GOT series and loved the description of the iron borne in the fourth (or the fifth book), so I pulled from what I could remember of that and went with it. I always loved medieval stories… castles and lands and betrayals behind heavy doors.
        I laughed at your gentle reminder to return the river and to the inherited land… don’t worry…. The Beginning should be ready wednesday and I just wrote about James’s adventures fishing so those are plodding along.
        Please stay safe in your second lockdown, if the US was smart we would be doing that here too as a nation rather than relying on people to self manage. I am grateful for your comments!

        BK

    5. I absolutely love it!
      24 pages of shear enjoyment , thank goodness for boring Conferences
      Please, please post more of this delightful, and so different, story as soon as possible.

      Meantime stay safe and well

    6. What a story….. if I had to say, I would think this is a story set in the the late 1700s. I think this is the time about the Pirate hay day. Of course there have been pirates as long as there has been ships.

      Bette is really a rough character as is the whole crew. I wonder what Miss Christina Kennard was up to before she was turned over to Eric to be transported to their wedding in Kingston. Would that be Kingston Jamaica? Bette seems to be a successful Captain – actually more like an Admiral with 20 or more ships under her command and control. She is really a good business woman to keep that many crew members to be loyal and remain in her employ. I just hate that she is obsessed with pleasing her father with all these conquest. But maybe now that Tina has entered her life, she will rethink her relationship with dear ole Dad. Maybe she will start to think about settling down somewhere with someone special? Convert her pirating operation into a legitimate shipping business maybe?

      This story has a great deal of possibilities…. cannot wait to see where you take us..

      I think that the Whisper will help Bette find out the truth about Jodi. If its a secret, leave it to Alice to find out the facts….. Alice is a much needed asset for Bette in this operation. I’m sure Jodi is going to pay for her misdeeds.. let’s just wait and see what happens.

      Thanks for the story…. keep it going… But please do not forget your other stories… too many on this website has great beginnings and yet they never are concluded…. We love your writing and your imagination BK…

      • Thank you Martha! No specific time in history or in the world and I will probably mix up pirate and viking and crusader and overall medieval lore with each chapter but research has never been my thing! A legitimate shipping business sounds very intriguing indeed, Bette certainly has the ships and the knowledge to make that work provided she can get rid of Lord Bates, lose Jodie, come to closure with her father and be responsible. I totally think she can, with Tina by her side that is.
        I won’t forget about my other stories I promise. These are keeping me sane in a crazy world and helping make the time go by when I am stuck inside. Thank you for following all three stories and for always letting me know how much you have enjoyed them….

    7. BK!

      wow, talk about escapist, this takes the cake for bette & tina fan fic! sure it’s pirate-y (pirates! yeah!) but it think of it more along the lines of a period piece bette & tina. and…YOU GOT ME. I want to read more. you paint such a vivid picture that I am instantly taken away to gritty seas, taverns, hooligans, and bette in the midst of it all, large and in charge and just a bit jaded by it all underneath it all. and then she meets tina…a healer of sorts. perfect.

      can I say…I love how you handled Candace…and Jodi (although im ok if she walks the plank for her betrayal)…very satisfying.

      argh ‍☠️….im ready for more of this story.

      [Insert house of stir fry approval here]

      I sucked you in to another story! Glad you liked it! It is absolutely a period piece, that is a great description. More to come, stay tuned
      BK
      (love the seal of approval)

    9. Absolutely loved this! I am a sucker for a pirate story; this one seems to have it all. I love how you introduced all our favorite characters. I got a kick out of Alice. Badass Bette with that vulnerability is always my favorite Bette. I am a Tibette lover, and love how you showed the chemistry and a connection already between Bette & Tina. Best line of dialogue was “I have a tongue, Captain. And I know how to use it” Atta girl, Tina. Looking forward to the next chapters…
      BTW, BK, you are one of my favorite authors. I regularly read your stories over and over. I can tell this will be one of those I come back to as well.

      • Westy
        Thank you so much! LOVE a good medieval story, right? I love a vulnerable tough Bette too. Thank you for your kind comments too about my stories, so nice to hear that you enjoy reading and re-reading them. Stay Safe! More to come…
