"They're trying to sail away!" Wulfsen shouted, making up his mind that whoever it was, they could not be up to any good. "Faster captain!"

"Maybe you should come on down from there now, Lek!" Shawn called up.

The ship was moving so fast now Lek was afraid to move, he just clung to the crow's nest.

"Lex! You don't want to be up there if a cannon comes screaming toward that crow's nest." He had no way of knowing, of course, if they had a cannon or not, but if they did, that thing was a great target.

"You'll do far worse than fall if a cannon ball strikes that crow's nest."

Wulfsen rolled his eyes. "Should I go up there and get him down?" Wulfsen asked.

"If he wasn't Aislyn's son, I'd say leave him up there. But since he's family..."

Wulfsen grunted and climbed back up the the crow's nest. It was noticeably windier up there.

"C'mon boy, you need to get down from here." Wulfsen said, looking to the other ship. He noticed that someone on deck had red hair the same shade as Sileas.

Shawn stared over at the other boat, squinting while trying to see. He did see a shock of bright red hair, and not many had hair that color. He cautiously smiled. If they were slavers,  they certainly wouldn't let the girls up on deck.

Wulfsen tied a rope around Lek's waist and shoved him from the crow's nest. He climbed down, untied the boy, then ran out on the bowsprit.

"SILEAS!!!" Wulfsen shouted.

Wulfsen heard Sileas's voice and grinned. "SILEAS!" He shouted again.

"Sileas told me the little ones had been lost. That's true?" He asked.

Shawn nodded sadly. He sat down next to Nelek. "I lost Sarah and two of the triplets as well."

"Too much," Shawn agreed. "And so much of it bad. I almost lost Brie too." Shawn hoped she would forgive him when she needed him the most.

Wulfsen ran around deck, hurrying to get off and to be reunited with Sileas. The past week without her had been a misery.

"Almost there." After Shawn had confirmed that Kadelyn, Erich and Peter were dead, he had been very quiet. He spent most of his time on deck with Lek, often staring out towards land.

Shawn nodded. "We'll rent a wagon in Portside and retrieve our horses. Won't be long now."

Wulfsen jumped from the ship to the dock. Sileas had to be around here somewhere, or coming to port soon.
