Chapter 13 – Destination Known
Terra Vonnel and her sailing master, Coven Breckrill, looked on from the quarterdeck of the Aspen. They had risked their lives countless times and lost several good men along the way. In the end, they had what they had come for, the Orb of Time. Now they would rewrite history, change their fortunes, and conquer the world. But most of all, Terra would have her mother back.
Mount Aries was no more, and in its place, a shell of a mountain engulfed in a blaze of emerald flames.
“I think I like the view from here much better,” Coven said, looking over at Terra.
She smiled as she looked down at the crimson-colored Orb and began to turn its brass dials.
“Yes, I would have to agree.”
Coven leaned forward, placing his hands on the helm.
“So where to now?” he asked with a grin. Even though Coven knew the answer to that question, it felt good to ask.
Terra looked up and stared into the sunrise, its ginger red swirls intertwined with shards of violet, stretching across the horizon. It was beautiful, she thought, almost perfect… but not perfect enough.
“I’m thinking Florida… July… around 1715. I hear it’s quite nice that time of the year,” she replied, sliding the last digit into place.
“Now, Vixen, I’ve seen that look before. Would ye be wantin’ t’steal something?” Coven asked in his best pirate voice.
Terra grinned. “Coven, my friend, a good quest always needs funding.”
They laughed as the sky above the great charcoal ship began to thunder, and in a flash of emerald green, the Aspen vanished.
