Scarlett wandered around Tortuga's port area. Pirates and unhonest sailors would come and go. She let out a long sigh. She wondered when she could leave this port. Many of her friends had jumped ship there.
Worming her way around, she realized how long it had been since she'd seen Jack. The last time she could remember was when he was with that Turner boy.
You still like him. the voice in her head taunted her. Scarlett tried to fight it, but couldn't. It was true.
Scarlett noticed several ships at the dock. Time to leave Tortuga... she thought with a smile and headed towards the dock.
Jack turned to run but it was too late - he was surrounded. He grinned manically, and clutched the chest to him tightly, flourishing his sword with the other hand.
"Will Turner," he hissed, "The key, if you please."
Jack wandered around Tia's hut, exploring the place. It was still unfamiliar to him do to it's cramped space and so much stuff. He often squeaked when he saw something that seemed to suddenly appear, or made him jump.
The large snake in Tia's hut scared him most. He never knew where it was going to be, so it scared him.
The small monkey wandered around some more, and jumped up onto the big table with the map on it. Jack took one of the rings on there and put it in his mouth and jumped off the table with it in his mouth.
Running around he dropped the ring and wandered off some place else.

Elizabeth looked back into the chest they had uncovered. It was then she realized that the rusting old thing wasn't just filled with letters; there was another, smaller chest inside.
She reached in a lifted it out with trembling fingers. She didn't know who to trust at the moment, least of all herself. Something inside the box seemed to move, and she thrust it quickly into the hands of her nearest companion; Norrington. She realized at once that probably hadn't been the smartest move, but Will or Jack could easily snatch it away again.
"The key," she said faintly. "Will, the key."
She glanced toward him, and her eyes widened.
"Will!" she cried. For behind him, she could make out the fearful silhouettes of several men... men that didn't look entirely human.
"Will!" she cried again, this time more frantically. "Run!"
