Chapter 4: Escape 1491

It had been ten months since they had captured me, and by “they” I mean the Templars.

I had been used, time and time again at their pleasure, never being able to do anything about it.

Sighing I looked out the window at the water, I’d been on this ship for ten months, maybe a little more than that.

I really had to get out of here before something happened, and I really didn’t want to even guess what that something might be.

Standing up and swaying a little, I headed over to the door, only to have some Templar bastardo walk into the room.

“Who are you and what do you want!?” I glared at him, I had been pushed far beyond my comfort zone and was ready to fight, even kill if necessary.

“Who am I? Oh, you should know me girl.” He smiled evilly as he walked towards me. “What’s your name, missy?”

I backed away from him, the look in his eyes more than enough to frighten me. “It’s Miranda…”

“Well Miranda, I’m Devron.” He smiled and grabbed my arm, pulling me close to him.

“Let go of me you bastard.” I lashed out with my free arm and slapped him across the face before kicking his tender spot, hard.

Devron, doubled over before dropping to the ground.

Taking the moment I ran at the window only to cover my face with my arms and jumped out the window, smashing the glass.

Crashing into the water and sinking under a foot before I struggled back up to the surface.

“Come back here Miranda!” I looked up at the ship to see Devron standing at the window with a group of other Templars.

“I’d rather die then come back!” I started to swim away just as an arrow whizzed by and just missed my arm.

“Then we will grant your wish!” Devron screamed, as a volley of arrows was launched.

I ducked under the water but was too slow, I felt an arrow hit my calf and another hit my bicep.

Gasping I came back up for air only to have another arrow strike, only this time in my back.

‘Damn bastards, they really meant to kill me.’ Struggling to stay afloat I began to swim away from the boat.

I looked back over my shoulder to see only to have an arrow burry itself into my shoulder.

Crying out with pain I sank beneath the water, before struggling to the surface.

“Don’t bother going after her, we’re at least ten leagues from land and another twenty from any town, she’ll die somewhere in between here and land.”

‘Ten leagues to land? And another twenty to a town? This is going to be painful…’ I kept swimming away from the boat.

Hours passed and as the sun began to set I caught my first sight of land. After ten months it was heaven to my eyes.

I grabbed what little energy I had left and swam the rest of the way to land just as the sun sank beneath the ocean.

I crawled out of the shallows up the beach past the high tide mark before collapsing onto the sand.

‘I made it, I really made it. I’m free.’  Panting softly I closed my eyes and just passed out from pain, hunger and exhaustion.
