Every child is born with the notion of good and evil. The innermost guiding moral being that of an inherent good, that all people are good and will do good to oneself and others. Lying, cheating, or stealing is not yet discovered to be wrong, not for the reasons they may believe. Then, they hear the tales of pirates and the stormy sea, of heavy grey clouds and waves tall as castle walls. Thick waves which crash against the shores in the night which makes their skin crawl to feel, the shudder of ocean against earth. Children hear the stories of the infamous pirate leaders and their crew, and suddenly the world is a little more grim. They hide in their beds and cry for their mothers at the mere mention of a pirate, yet the next day fake swords out of branches and knock their kin to the ground. To a child, a pirate is an inspiration to behold. A pirate is rich and he has all he needs just aside his love of the seven seas. Good and evil become intermingled, until the truth has no purpose being decided as either wrong or right. War is raging between the nations of old. Every family is pitted against the other in a battle for control of both land and sea. This is where or story begins, with the tale of Captain Grey and his captive to be, one Lady Odette Beaumont. She is the last of her family line, and the stakes are high for her head to end the reign of the Beamont family. That's exactly his aim, to take his prize and sell her to the highest bidder. The day was yet young, a festival in the air, and the young heiress had no idea what was in store for her.
