A Captain's Prize, by chanda
Kagome Higurashi woke up to find a tight rope around her neck, and her hands tied behind her. Her only support was the wooden mast. She looked around to get her wits back as to where she was; the last recognition she had was being thrown out of bed by an explosion.
Black smoke still lingered in the air, carelessly burning her eyes, her lips were dry from the scorching sun, she licked them to try to regain some moisture. She looked up for any hope of survivors but only saw the devastation of the battle and men carrying loot from the sinking American vessel in which she was on. She could feel the gaze of men scrutinizing her with their vulgar words on what they wanted to do to her. She tried to squeeze her hands at the mere thought of what they were thinking but the ropes that constricted her tightened, to the point where she was unable to breath or move until she released and gave them all cold evil stares while taking in a mental note that she wasn’t going down without a fight.
“Where am I?” She thought quietly, while looking around for more clues on who her captors where. Her long, soft, silky, raven hair blew in the wind while a small breeze comforted her burning skin. She was wearing what use to be a long sheer white-laced nightgown that was V shaped around her firm rounded breasts, and a long matching robe to go over it. Now it was tattered and torn showing off more flesh then she wanted to, and not to mention smudged with after affects of powder from the guns and cannons going off around her.
A tall man came out of the captain’s quarters he had black pants, a black shirt, and a gray sash around his waist. He had long, black, straggly hair that he had tied back with a black ribbon. He came out fully loaded with a gun hustler to his right and a black sword to his left. Looking regal, he strutted around the deck with his black boots that went up to his muscular thighs. He was very attractive, almost in an exotic sort of way. Nevertheless, she new better, he was just plain evil. In addition, the conformation was almost scary when she saw him looking at her with his hungry black eyes. She felt her heart beat faster when he started approaching her.
“What a fine prize you will bring me, my pet.” The captain callously said. Then he started reaching his hand up by the V shape in her gown and ran one of his claws down the nape of her tanned neck working down toward her breasts.
“Get you’re fucking hands off me, you vile filth!” She retorted, while her sapphire blue eyes gazed back at him. She did not care that the ropes were tightening around her neck and cutting off any circulation of oxygen.
He just grinned at her showing her his fangs, “It would be wise for you to calm yourself, for I may lose my temper and hurt you, then what price would you bring me?”
Emotions were running wild in her; she was scared, one minute she was on her vessel, only to realize that these pirates or renegades took her. All she wanted to do was go back to her plantation in Georgia, and be with her father and younger sister. However, fate would have other plans, cruel plans by the way this captain was looking at her. If only her ship was faster and not weighed down by the barnacles that lay underneath it.
“Hey wench, I’m addressing you!”
She was suddenly brought back from her thoughts by his shrewd voice. “Fuck you!” She replied angrily again, this time a cold palm run across her face, jerking her head as far as the restricted rope let her. She could feel her lip swell, as the blood began to trickle down the corner of her mouth.
“ My, my aren’t we a feisty one, I will defiantly have fun breaking you in.”
“Captain Naraku is that any way to treat my cargo?”
Naraku turned around startled, “Well if it isn’t Captain Inuyasha?”
Kagome also looked up to see where the new voice came from. There was hope in her eyes that he could be a rescuer, but her hope glimmered down when he said cargo. He was a very attractive man he had long white hair with silver highlights that was in ponytail, he wore a Red bandanna over his head. He had matching red pants with black boots, his shirt was white with ruffled sleeves, and a black sash went over his waist carrying a sword and a gun. Unlike the two ruffians, that were following close behind him.
“We made a deal Naraku! I get the passengers and some of the spoils,” Inuyasha growled baring his partial fangs to the other captain.
“Did he just growl?” Kagome wondered back in thought. She did notice, that Naraku had fangs, he has fangs… “Oh my god; I’ve been fucking kidnapped by demons!” She screamed not realizing that she said it aloud.
Now both captains stopped their squabbling and turned their attention to the young women. “Shut you’re ill tempered mouth, Wench!” Naraku was yelling while he slapped her again in the face.
An angry growl came from Inuyasha. “You touch her again and I will have great pleasure ripping your fucking throat out!”
One thing Inuyasha couldn’t stand was to see a woman get hit or treated like a piece of meat dangling in front of a bunch of sharks. Despite himself, he started gazing at her as if she, herself were naked before him and he had to admit she was breathtaking. He noticed her immediately he boarded Naraku’s ship. “I cannot let Naraku have her, I have to convince him, but how?” He pondered not taking his eyes off her. Taking in a deep breath, he sighed smelling the carnage around him, suddenly the sent of vanilla and jasmine whisked across his nose and sent him into instant arousal.
“Look my dear Captain, we cannot have you hitting or bruising my property, and you know as well as I that damage goods don’t sell.” Inuyasha stated while walking up to Naraku and his hostage. Captain Naraku knew just how cunning Inuyasha could be and was prepared to fight for his soon to be new toy while looking up at her with a sinful grin. Just then, Inuyasha started speaking again, “Although if you insist on having her you will have to pay me.”
Naraku was pissed; he grabbed Inuyasha by his shirt growling, “What do you mean I have to pay?” This caught the attention of Inuyasha’s right hand men walking up with their swords out aiming to kill the other captain, Naraku noticed them and suddenly let go.
“As you pointed out Naraku we made no agreement on passengers, then she must be considered part of the booty and any ransom or sale money must be shared by all according to the articles we all signed,” Inuyasha spoke confidently, for he knew this would get Naraku to give him the girl.
“No deal, she is mine!” Naraku stated back.
“Would you cheat your men out of a ransom, Naraku?”
The other pirates heard Inuyasha say that and started coming around growling at Naraku; he did not need a mutiny on his ship for one prize possession.
Again Inuyasha spoke, “How about I take her with me and sell her, then share the split with you, in the meantime I will give you and your crew three boxes of my finest rum, and food also. At least she will be able to sell at a high price in Kadavu.”
Naraku admired the younger pirate captain, slapped him on the back, “You got yourself a deal,” and turned to the men, “Let’s feast and look at our fine loot.”
Inuyasha turned to his men and gave them orders to remove the items of the ship and do it quickly. When he approached the limp woman, she was pale and fatigue settled in quickly. Unsheathing his sword, he gently started to run it down her curvy body. Kagome started coming around and opened her eyes and instead of seeing a black pair of eyes gazing upon her, she saw amber with a tint of gold. He started raising his sword up and between her breasts and made his way up to her neck, and with a quick flick of his wrist, the rope was gone. Her head fell forward at the release of her bonding; her neck was red and sore from the chafing of the twine. Next, he went down to her wrists and she felt the release of her hands. She felt her body go numb while trying to stand on her feet. Her legs gave in and she started falling onto the wooden deck, but hit. He grabbed her, picking her up bridal style and carried her back to his ship. She knew that he was carrying her but that did not stop the darkness from consuming her as she passed out.
