As we sail the lonely seas we are reminded of the legend that tells us of this
mythical beast, a beast from the darkest depths of the deepest oceans. We all know it’s name, we all know the legend, three hundred miles long from it’s head to its tail are the reports, yet no one alive has ever seen it.
It’s the holy grail we seek, the treasure, the bounty at the end of our quest. For it’s head on a platter we will take the prize. The quest shall not be over until we’ve searched the very depths of hell. We will hound it’s lair looking for those bright shining eyes and the flame from his mouth. We will not stop until we claim the ransom.
As we approached the beast’s lair our wooden hulled ship groaned and creaked as it rocked on the waves. The cloudless skies turned instantly black, the waters turned to glass and the wind all but disappeared. We sat motionless drifting aimlessly with limped sails on an ocean of no movement.
Within seconds the water around the swollen hull began bubbling, the bubbles quickly turning to a white froth, surrounding us as far as the eye could see. Before we knew what was going on through the froth and the bubbles she rose from her depths.
With tentacles like fire lashing at us from below the water we had no where to run, no where to hide. Below deck the cannons fired but they made not a dent in the great beast from the sea. Our swords slashed, cutting air slicing beastly flesh.
Over the froth the beast rose high, the rage in it’s eyes unmistakable, the fire from it’s mouth nothing but a huge ball of flame. It was clear to us all the end was nigh.
We should have known better than to chase the mighty Leviathan. We knew in our hearts as the beast crested the waves that the stinking calamari was leading us to our watery graves. The bounty long out of our minds as the terrorsquid slayed us for daring to oppose. Limbs torn off, bodies torn apart and disembowelled where they stood.
As I sink down towards Davey Jones my mind thinks of nothing but revenge.*
Revenge will happen in part two when I get an agreeable prompt to go with the follow up song.
