Dec04, Pirates of the Caribbean, Norrington, Thwarted
Characters: Norrington, OC
Note: For arwen_lune, who wanted Pirates of the Caribbean, "shelter from the storm."
The Black Pearl might be the fastest ship in the Caribbean, but the Interceptor was gaining on her. Norrington lowered his spyglass and told the first mate to crowd on more sail. With luck, they would be on top of the Pearl by morning.
He was wakened a scant few hours later by the ship's shuddering and hastened on deck to find rain sheeting down. The first mate, hanging grimly onto the tiller, had had the wit to furl the sails. Norrington cursed softly to himself; no chance now of catching the Pearl. There was no shelter from this storm.
