Pirates screenplay
by Ronald Kaiser (KAISER815@ROADRUNNER.COM)

Rated: PG   Genre: Action/Adventure   User Review: ****
Pirates of the Cayman Islands - Calico runs into a family of vampires. Everyone is fighting for the treasure and power of the Cayman Islands.


PIRATE CALICO CRISS is a fictitious pirate that sails the Cayman Islands. All characters appearing in my screenplays are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Any resemblance to Captain Jack Sparrow the Disney character is purely coincidental PIRATE CALICO CRISS is better looking, stronger, younger and smarter, he also likes magic and wears calico skullcaps or calico bandannas at times more like the known real pirate Calico Jack. Then again their were many many pirates. My screenplays are registered with the Writers Guild of America, West as well as the U.S. Copyright office.



PIRATES SCREENPLAY

FADE IN:

EXT. THE YEAR 1710 GOTHIC TOWN NEAR GOTHIC CHURCH - DAY
                                                            
Added scene to set the mood. As credits roll Gothic music
starts "Globus-preliator". Lyrics will be a mix of the
original Latin/Greek with my added "pirate English"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XKoXMgGAjI

A gloomy grey day. We float in above a large Gothic church.
A crowd of townspeople are packing into the church. Most are
from the local farms. A few are upper class. We float above
the people inside the church. Priests and nuns are
celebrating the long lost "blessing of the stakes" mass.

As the drumming in the music starts. Military men in the
orchestra are playing the drums. Other military men in the
orchestra play the horns. Townspeople and nuns make up the
vocals. Women play the violins.

The lead singer a woman is dressed in a nuns habits. Their
are five priests on the alter they are blessing the vampire
killing stakes and silver ball shot being brought up by ruff
looking men dressed in long leather duster coats. A group of
nuns sitting in the pews look on.

Standing in the center of the altar is a old spooky looking
priest he is making the sign of the cross. We can read his
lips mouthing "in the name of the father, the son, and the
holy spirit". He holds up a cross as he blesses the
parishioners. A few ragtag children look on with amazement.

At the end of the song as the nuns hand makes a wave like
motion it fades into the real waves in the next scene.
                                                            
 
EXT. CARIBBEAN SEA THE YEAR 1710 - NIGHT
                                                            
High seas, wind and rain is what the pirate ship "PEGASUS"
is struggling through. Sharp CRACKS of lighting and the low
RUMBLE of thunder.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - NIGHT
                                                            
Four pirates are pulling on a rope that goes through a
pulley that is going down the below deck stairwell. As the
rope pulls up the tip of a beautiful black casket appears
from the stairwell.

2.


Two more pirates PIRATE BRUIN and PIRATE KRISTEN appear in
the stairwell struggling, helping to lift the casket. Above
in the riggings the main sails are ripped like rags flapping
in the wind. Lighting flashes and CRACKS followed by thunder
booms RUMBLING.

The "Pegasus" is rocking in the sea swells. The pirates
struggle with the casket two more pirates PIRATE THOR and
PIRATE MORTON push it up from below. At last the casket is
up on the main deck.

CAPTAIN GRIST a older hardened looking pirate captain with a
leather patch over his right eye watches as the pirates undo
the ropes from the casket slipping and sliding on the wet
deck as they move it near him.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
Open it!
                                                            
The pirate crewmen look puzzled but obey his order. Pirate
Bruin knells near it and with his hands he flips open the
two hinged flaps that seal the casket. A whoosh HISSING
sound like opening a vacuumed packed can is heard and a
small amount of vapor escapes. He slowly opens the casket.

Crewmen are frozen as they look at the lifeless body of
Count VON KAISER in his sixties, long gray hair and beard,
dressed in a fancy black European style suit. His skin is
wrinkled greenish in color.

Raindrops bounce off his face as the wind blows his hair.
Lighting flashes and CRACKS as thunder booms RUMBLE. Captain
Grist gets up closer looking at Von Kaiser face. SUDDENLY
Von Kaiser's eyes open.

Crewmen jolt at this surprise. Von's eyes look left then
right, his arms at his side slowly move up to his chest.
Crewmen watching his every move. Von struggles a little to
sit up.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
Help him up!
                                                            
Pirate Bruin gets his hand under Von's arm and helps him sit
up.
                                                            
                       BRUIN
Take your time sir. Ill help you
up.
                                                            

3.

Bruin helps Von out of the casket. Von standing, rocking
with ship he looks around for a moment then his eyes dart to
Captain Grist.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Why did you wake me?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
My master we are at the mercy of
this storm and I fear we'll smash
into those rocks near shore.
                                                            
Captain Grist points to the shore not far away and the rocks
are being hammered by large white cap waves. Von looking
around hes upset. Lighting flashes and CRACKS followed by
the thunder RUMBLING.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Where are my sisters?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
Still below Sir. Should we get
them up?
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Bring them up now!
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST (addressing his crewmen)
You heard him. Get the next one up
here.
                                                            
The four crewmen make their way back down the stairwell. Von
gets near Captain Grist. And gives him the stink eye.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
I'm starving.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
Sir go into my cabin.
                                                            
Grist looks around the crewmen on deck and spots the young
cabin boy JEAN and points to him.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
You their Jean go with the Count,
find him some bread and wine in my
cabin, now hurry.
                                                            
Jean hurrays to the captains cabin door and opens it for
Von, they go in and the door is shut.
                                                            
INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - CONTINUING
                                                            

4.

Below deck its dark a few lanterns light the way as the four
pirates pass supplies and cannons to reach the partitioned
stern room area of the ship that has five foot of dirt
covering the whole room.

They crawl across "the grave yard" past the hole that Von's
casket was in and approach four other pirates PIRATE STEEN,
PIRATE KUND, PIRATE JESPER, and PIRATE TUMP digging out the
second casket with shovels and their bare hands. Water is
coming in from above and a lot of the dirt is turning into
mud.
                                                            
                       BRUIN
That coffin we just took topside.
                                                            
The men stop digging to listen.
                                                            
                       BRUIN (continuing)
The captain had us open it. Their
was a dead man in it, only he
wasn't dead he got up out of the
coffin and was talking to the
Captain.
                                                            
The pirates chuckle not believing his story.
                                                            
                       JESPER
He's pulling our leg.
                                                            
                       KRISTEN
We're not lying, it's the truth.
That man in the casket was alive.
                                                            
                       THOR
It's true the Captain said the
man's name was Count Von Kaiser.
                                                            
                       STEEN
I don't believe it, these caskets
have been buried under here for
three months since we left
Germany.
                                                            
                       KUND
Maybe he was sleeping?
                                                            
                       KRISTEN
No one could sleep that long.
                                                            

5.

                       THOR (afraid)
Were about to abandoned ship, were
going to hit the rocks on shore
and we'll all go down with the
ship.
                                                            
The ship sways and CREAKS as it lifts from a swell. Lighting
flashes and CRACKS as the thunder RUMBLES.
                                                            
                       BRUIN
This time you four take this one
topside and you'll see for
yourself. We'll start on the next
one.
                                                            
                       KRISTEN
One of you sneak into the
Captain's cabin and see if that
cabin boy Jean is in their.
                                                            
Pirates Steen, Kund, Jesper, and Tump push the casket
towards the doorway out.
                                                            
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - CONTINUING
                                                            
On deck the Captain's door opens and a new YOUNGER handsome
looking Von Kaiser appears his hair and beard now black. He
walks back on deck. Crewmen glance at him as he approaches
Captain Grist.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Captain Grist, their is nothing we
can do to avoid those rocks?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
Nothing sir. Were at the mercy of
the sea.
                                                            
The four pirates start pulling up the rope on the pulley as
the second bronze colored casket is being lifted from the
stairwell.
Pirates Steen, Kund, Jesper and Tump push the casket up onto
the deck undo the ropes, and slid it on the wet deck near
the Captain and Von. Von knells near it. The rain is washing
the dirt and mud off the casket.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
I'll open it.
                                                            
Von flips the latches on the lid. A whoosh HISSING sound
like opening a vacuumed packed can is heard, and a small
amount of vapor escapes. He slowly opens the casket.
He looks down at PURELL KAISER one of his sisters she looks

6.

dead, greenish in color, wrinkled skin and long gray hair.
She is wearing a red velvet European style dress.
Rain is falling on her face as Von gets closer to her.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER (softly)
Purell...Purell..Awake my sister.
                                                            
Von is looking at her face then her eyes open she looks to
the left then to the right. She gives him a small grin.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Sister you must get up.
                                                            
Von gently takes her under the arm, helps her sit up then
helps her out of the casket. Pirates Steen, Kund, and Tump
are watching in awe and exchange glances at each other in
disbelief.
Pirate Jesper slips away and disappears into the Captain's
cabin.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Captain Grist you remember my
beautiful sister Purell?
                                                            
Grist has a look on his face like that's not the Purell I
remember. He quickly pulls himself together and politely
extends his hand.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
Aye, Purell nice to see you again
Miss.
                                                            
She lightly shakes his hand. Purell looks upset with the
conditions of the surroundings the wind, the rain, and the
pirates staring at her.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Captain Grist my sister needs
something to eat.
                                                            
Grist snaps to it.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
Aye, I'll take care of it.
                                                            
Pirate Jesper exits the Captain's cabin and gives Pirate
Kund the finger across his throat "the cabin boy is dead"
sign.
Grist looks at the near by pirates watching and calls out
PIRATE TAPPER.
                                                            

7.

                       CAPTAIN GRIST
Tapper take the lady into my cabin
and fix her some bread and wine.
                                                            
Pirate Tapper steps forward and takes Purell gently by the
arm.
                                                            
                       TAPPER
This way miss.
                                                            
Tapper leads Purell into the captain's cabin and shuts the
door behind them. A large swell lifts the ship and everyone
is hanging on as a large wave breaks over the side. Lighting
CRACKS followed by the thunder RUMBLING. Wind gusts with
sheets of rain.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
This is bad, I have to get off
this ship now.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
We can abandoned ship and try to
swim for it.
                                                            
Von looking fearful at that idea.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
No...no I can't do that.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
We can stay and pray we don't hit
the rocks.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
What do you really think of that?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
We'll hit the rocks and half of us
will drown.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Get my other sisters up here now.
                                                            
Grist looks at the four pirates.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
Get below and dig out the others.
                                                            
Pirate Kund looks upset at that order.
                                                            
                       KUND
It's getting harder to dig them up
it's turning to mud down their.
                                                            

8.

Grist puts his hand on his sword handle.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST (screams)
Get down their now!
                                                            
The four pirates head back down the stairwell. Lighting
flashes and the soft low RUMBLE of thunder. The captain's
cabin door opens and out steps the beautiful Purell her hair
is a beautiful light brown. Captain Grist even has to take a
double look at her. The crewmen in the area are all looking
at her she's beautiful. She approaches Von.
                                                            
 
INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Below deck at the "grave yard" pirates Bruin, Kristen, Thor
and Morton are digging away in the muddy soil as pirates
Steen, Kund, Jesper and Tump crawl their way over to them.
                                                            
                       BRUIN
What did you see up their?
                                                            
                       STEEN (nervous)
Just like you said, they opened
it...a dead woman... then she woke
from the dead.
                                                            
                       KRISTEN
I tell you were doing the Devil's
work.
                                                            
Pirate Thor is nervelessly rubbing his forehead.
                                                            
                       THOR (afraid)
We'll all go to hell for this.
                                                            
The pirates look at each other with fear on their faces.
                                                            
                       MORTON
I know what they are....Vampires
from Europe.
                                                            
The other men freeze listening to him speak.
                                                            
                       MORTON (afraid)
You know...Vampires are the living
dead...I've seen them in
Europe...If we don't kill them,
they'll kill all of us. They'll
suck the blood from us to feed.
                                                            
                       KUND
What do we have to do?
                                                            

9.

                       MORTON
Pray.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
On deck Von is looking for a better option then he spots
along boat strapped to the side of a deck farther up the
stern.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER (pointing to it)
Captain what about that row boat.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
I don't think you'll find two
fools on this ship to row that in
this storm.
                                                            
Von approaches a group of pirates, reaches into his coat
pocket and pulls out a pouch with gold coins. This grabs the
pirates attention as Von holds it out to them.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
This pouch of gold for two brave
strong men who can row my sister
and I to shore now.
                                                            
The pirates look at each other like it's a crazy idea, then
PIRATE CAMBRIDGE and PIRATE STONE step forward.
                                                            
                       CAMBRIDGE
Stone and I will do it.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Very well get that boat ready now.
                                                            
Von walks back to Purell and the Captain. Purell whispers in
Von's ear.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
Von we can't cross water.
                                                            
Von turns to Captain Grist.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Captain we'll need to be wrapped
in cloth or blankets and covered
with a canvas.
                                                            
 

10.

INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Below deck at the "grave site" Pirate Thor is sharpening a
wooded stake with his knife. The bronzed colored casket is
out of the dirt and Pirate Morton is tying the pulling rope
to it.
                                                            
                       BRUIN
Load your pistols and cover them
with a piece of canvas to keep the
power dry.
                                                            
He shows the men how he wraps his pistol with the piece of
canvas. Pirate Kristen has a wooden mallet in one hand and
three four-foot wooden spear stakes with sharpened tips in
the other.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Outside next to the ship Cambridge and Stone are in the
longboat. The waves lifting it up and down as they reach up
to receive the wrapped body of Von Kaiser coming down to
them tied by ropes. They gently place him in the rowboat.
Pirates on deck gently pass down the wrapped body of Purell.
Cambridge and Stone place her next to Von.

They cover them with a piece of canvas. Captain Grist looks
on as the pirates on deck are pulling the rope to the pulley
going down the stairwell. Lighting flashes with a CRACK the
thunder RUMBLES as the tip of the third casket is coming up.

Next to the ship in the long boat Cambridge and Stone row
for their lives moving away from the "Pegasus".
On deck the third casket is slid in front of Captain Grist.
The pirates stare at him.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
What are you doing. Open it.
                                                            
                       BRUIN
Where is Von and that woman?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST
They left us. Cambridge is rowing
them to shore. Now open it.
                                                            
                       BRUIN (determined)
They be Vampire and were not
letting any more out.
                                                            

11.

                       KUND
Were not doing the Devil's work
for you.
                                                            
Captain Grist pulls out his sword. Two other loyal pirates
standing behind Grist also pull out their swords.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN GRIST (menacing)
You swine, I said open it.
                                                            
Pirate Bruin points his covered pistol at Grist and fires
BOOM. Captain Grist falls dead to the deck. Just as quickly
Pirates Morten and Jesper shoot the other two pirates BOOM
BOOM. Both are mortally wounded and fall dead to the deck.
On the longboat Cambridge spots an opening between some
rocks and a small section of beach. Cambridge puts his back
into rowing a hard as he can.

On deck Pirate Bruin knells next to the third casket, he has
a wooden stake in one hand and the wooden mallet in the
other. He looks up to all the crew mates standing near by
watching, they all have their stakes, pistols, and swords
ready. He undoes the latches on the casket. A whoosh sound
like opening a vacuumed packed can is heard, a small amount
of vapor escapes.

He slowly opens the casket. He sees a older dead looking
woman RUSHKA KAISER. She has gray hair, wrinkled greenish
looking skin, wearing a black velvet European style dress.
Pirate Bruin puts the stake on her chest near her heart. He
looks back up at all the pirates watching his every move.
They are ready with their stakes and swords. Pirate Bruin
looks back down at Rushka, just then her EYES OPEN.

She sees the stake on her chest and her hand grabs Pirates
Bruins. This startles him, he yells out a scream as he
raises the mallet. Rushka sees the mallet coming down and
lets out a scream. The mallet pounds the stake. The stake
drops into Rushka's chest. She screams in agony showing her
fanged teeth. Her body starts to violently shake, the skin
on her face turns black and starts to flake off, a gruesome
site.

Then she is still, she's dead. The rain washing the dried
blacked skin off her face exposing her skull.
A bright flash of lighting fills the sky followed by a loud
thunder RUMBLE. A large wave slams into the side of the ship
as it breaks over the deck many pirates are knocked off
their feet, the caskets slide on the deck. The men are in
panic.
                                                            
                       STEEN (terrified)
Abandon ship!
                                                            

12.

Pirates are jumping over the side and splash into the waves.
Two pirates swimming for their lives are pulled under by the
strong undertow. The "Pegasus" near the rocks bobs up and
down with the swells. The ship now empty of all crew. The
three caskets slide about on the wet deck.
                                                            
 
EXT. RUMRUNNER A SMALL ONE MAN SHIP CARIBBEAN SEA - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Nine Months later. A beautiful day in the Caribbean. A small
one-man ship the "RUMRUNNER" is cutting through the water.
Captained by no other that Captain CALICO CRISS he is behind
the wheel all alone. He has on his calico skull cap. He
looks over his cargo on the deck, there are wooded kegs of
rum, rolled up new ship canvas sails, five chickens in small
wooden cages, and two good size pigs in wooden cages.

With his spyglass hes scanning the horizon. Looking back and
forth. He spots a black dot on the horizon to the West, he
lowers the spyglass.
                                                            
                       CALICO (talking to himself)
Change course captain, West by
South West.
                                                            
Calico leaves the ships wheel. He moves to the sail, unties
a line, and adjusts the sails direction. The "Rumrunner"
sails on.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - LATER
                                                            
A breeze FLAPS a piece of ripped sail up on the mast. On
deck everything is still, just the CREEK of boards as the
Pegasus drifts on the sea looking like a ghost ship. The
silence is broken with a THUMP sound as Calico tries to pull
himself over the side onto the deck.

He has his pistol ready in hand but he's loosing his grip
and drops the pistol to the deck. He pulls his leg over the
side, gets on the deck and quickly retrieves his pistol.
                                                            
                       CALICO (looking around)
Ahoy!
                                                            
Calico has his pistol aimed, looking all about, and is very
cautious. He looks up at the ripped sails, then back down at
the three caskets. All their lids are shut.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Ahoy!
                                                            

13.

Calico makes his way to the ships wheel and sees the
skeletons of Captain Grist and the other two pirates that
died with him. Calico tips his hat to them.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Mates.
                                                            
Calico reaches down and picks up Captain Grist's piston.
Engraved on it across the barrel is "Captain Grist". He
gives it the once over and puts it in his sword belt. He
moves to the captain's cabin door and slowly opens it.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Ahoy!
                                                            
 
INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Inside the captain's cabin Calico enters, its darker in
their and he slowly makes his way around the room. He spots
the skeleton of the cabin boy Jean, then the skeleton of
pirate Tapper. Calico leaves and goes back on deck.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
He approaches Von's black casket. He cocks his pistol.
                                                            
                       CALICO (cautious)
An old pirate trick.
                                                            
He points his pistol at the casket ready to shoot. He
quickly lifts the lid, its empty. Calico moves over to
Purell's casket. He quickly opens the lid, its empty, Calico
breathes a sigh of relief. Calico moves over to Rushka's
casket once again ready to shoot.

He lifts the lid. Rushka's skull, with her vampire fangs is
looking back at him. The gruesome site scares Calico, his
pistol fires "BANG", striking Rushka's skull right in the
center of her forehead. He slams the lid shut, stands and
pulls out his sword moving away.
                                                            
                       CALICO (shocked)
What was that?
                                                            
Calico gets his composure back and approaches the casket,
opens the lid and sees the hole in Rushka's skull's forehead
still smoking.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Sorry Miss.

INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - LATER
                                                            
Below deck Calico with a lit torch in one hand, pistol in
the other.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Ahoy! Anyone down here?
                                                            
Its dark and as he approaches a cannon station he opens the
cannon flap on the ships side to let some light in. He
continues on, passing a few crates, and more cannon
stations. The he makes it to the "grave yard" section.

He lights the area with his torch and sees the dirt pile and
the left over holds from the caskets. He heads back top
side.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - AFTERNOON
                                                            
Calico up on the high mast. He wraps a line around his arm,
looks down and jumps. As he jumps the line is tight and he
slowly lowers. The rope runs through a pulley system he has
rigged up. As he goes down a keg of rum is taken off the
"Rumrunner" it goes up.

It stops right at the edge of the deck as Calico touches
down. He ties the line off and moves the rum onto deck.

Calico up on the high mast he wraps the line around his arm
and jumps. This time as he goes down a large roll of canvas
goes up off the "Rumrunner" all the way up to the high mast.
He is up on the high mast. He ties into place the new sail
he has hoisted up.
                                                            
                       CALICO (to himself)
They wonder why I drink.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - LATER
                                                            
On deck Calico ties down with rope Von's casket to the side
rails.
                                                            
                       CALICO (talking to himself)
Someone will pay a nice price for
this.
                                                            
He moves over to Rushka's casket opens it, looking around he
spots a beautiful red ruby "blood" stone ring on Rushka's
skeleton finger. He takes the ring off her finger looks at
it then puts it on his own finger.
                                                            

15.

                       CALICO
Love, I need this more that you
do.
                                                            
Calico on deck near a large iron pot. He is flicking a piece
of flint on a small rock to make sparks, the sparks land in
the kindling and he blows on them starting a fire.

Calico is enjoying a piece of chicken he just cooked having
some rum and looks content.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I love my new ship.
                                                            
Later Calico on deck has the skeleton bodies of Grist, Jean,
Tapper, and the other two pirates wrapped in cloth lined up
for a quick burial at sea. He tips his hat to them.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Gentlemen ..rest in peace.
                                                            
He picks up one of the wrapped bodies and pitches it over
board.
                                                            
 
INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - LATER
                                                            
Calico inside the captain's quarters sits at Captain Grist's
desk looking through the drawers. He finds a small pouch of
coins looks in it and puts it in his pocket.

Looking around he finds some letters and documents. Hes
reading them quickly and dropping them when finished. Then a
document catches his eye. Reading to himself.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Captain Grist for the safe deliver
of the four caskets.
                                                            
He pauses then re reads it.
                                                            
                       CALICO
For the safe delivery of four
caskets.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
On deck Calico is looking at the caskets he tied to the side
rail. Pointing to each one.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Lets see...one...two...three...
                                                            
 

16.

INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Below deck in the "grave yard area" Calico enters with a lit
torch. Hes looking at the dirt holes where the three caskets
have been removed from. Pointing to each one.
                                                            
                       CALICO
One...two...three.
                                                            
Then his eyes focus on the area just beyond hole number
three a undisturbed area.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Four.
                                                            
Calico is digging the dirt away looking for coffin number
four. Then he hits pay dirt the tip of a bronze casket.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Up on the high mast Calico wraps the line around his arm
then he jumps but this time is hanging their.

The rope leads down to his pulley system then down the
stairs into the "grave yard" and is tied to the handle of
the casket. It's stuck in the dirt.

Calico hanging from the line jerks his body a few times. He
looks down at the deck below.
                                                            
                       CALICO (concerned)
Not good.
                                                            
He starts jerking his body some more. Below the casket
breaks free and inches forward freeing itself. Calico is
being lowered to the deck as the casket is freed.
                                                            
 
INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Below deck its dark Calico opens a few cannon flap doors on
the ships side, rays of light come in. He approaches the
fourth casket. He is a little nervous. He takes his pistol
out and cocks it.

He knells near it and flips the latches. A WHOOSH hissing
sound like opening a vacuumed packed can is heard and a
small amount of vapor escapes. He sees a older dead looking
woman CASSIEO KAISER. She has gray hair, wrinkled greenish
looking skin, wearing a dark brown velvet European style
dress.


17.

He reaches in to lift her hand to get her ring when her eyes
SUDDENLY open. Cassieo sees Calico but more so to her horror
she sees the stream of light coming in across the room from
the cannon flap holes. She lets out a blood-curdling scream.

This scares Calico, he lets out a scream and in his hurry to
slam the lid shut his pistol fires BOOM. He quickly gets to
his feet and sits on the coffin lid. He is breathing heavy
and looks at his smoking pistol.
                                                            
                       CALICO (nervous)
Didn't expect that.
                                                            
He looks around the area and spots one of the wooden stakes
the earlier pirates had made and left behind. He gets up and
gets it. He puts his pistol in his sword belt and pulls out
the other pistol from Grist and cocks it.
                                                            
                       CALICO (talking to himself)
The person in the box is dead. You
saw her eyes open... I must be
seeing things...what about the
scream... I must be seeing and
hearing things...I don't like the
looks of this one bit.
                                                            
Calico musters up his courage again and knells next to the
casket. In his left hand he has the stake to push up the lid
and in his right hand his pistol ready to shoot. With the
stake he starts to lift the lid up. When its up about three
inches open he peers in to see Cassieo's EYES looking back
at him. He has the pistol trained on her.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Please don't kill me.
                                                            
                       CALICO
What makes you think I'll kill
you?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I know your a Vampire killer, I
see my sister's blood ring on your
finger.
                                                            
Calico glances at the ruby ring he took.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
She would never give that ring to
anyone. And I see the stake. I
even see you have Captain Grist's
pistol. And of course you have me
trapped in the daylight. But Sir
if you spare me I can lead you to
            (MORE)

18.

                       CASSIEO KAISER (cont'd)
teasure.
                                                            
                       CALICO (curious)
Treasure you say?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Treasure that would fill this
ship.
                                                            
                       CALICO
And how do I know you won't try to
kill me?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
You'll have to trust me.
                                                            
                       CALICO
But I don't trust anyone. And you
did say Vampire.
                                                            
Calico starts to raise the lid a little.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Please don't. The light hurts my
eyes.
                                                            
Calico lowers it.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I swear. Promise you. I give you
my word. I won't harm you in
anyway. I'll even tell you ways to
protect yourself from Vampires.
I'll help you find the treasure.
                                                            
Calico's facial expression like hey this sounds good.
                                                            
                       CALICO
And what do I have to do again?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Let me live. Tell me all. And I'll
tell you all. We trust each other.
We will be partners.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Then we have a understanding... I
agree.
                                                            

19.

                       CASSIEO KAISER
I agree as well. First please tell
me of that ring. It belongs to my
sister Rushka.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Was she wearing a black dress?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Yes.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I'm afraid she's dead.
                                                            
Cassieo is angry hisses at Calico and shows her fangs.
Calico drops the lid. After a moment Cassieo lifts the lid a
little herself from the inside.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I didn't kill her. I did see her
skeleton up on deck. That's were I
found the ring.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
And that pistol. Captain Grist's
pistol. Were is he?
                                                            
                       CALICO
He's gone as well. I buried him
and four other mates at sea.
                                                            
Cassieo drops the lid. Calico can hear her HISS. After a
moment she lifts the lid a little again.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
And my brother Von and my sister
Purell what about them?
                                                            
                       CALICO
I don't know of them. Now it's my
turn. Your a Vampire?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Yes I'm a Vampire.
                                                            
She chuckles to herself.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I thought you knew this?
                                                            
Calico faking it like he knew.
                                                            

20.

                       CALICO
Well yes..yes and no ..you can
never be sure in these matters.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I'm sorry we forgot to introduce
ourselves. I'm Countess Cassieo
Kaiser. You can call me princess
Cassieo.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I'm Captain Calico Criss..and you
can call me Captain Calico Criss.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Well Captain Calico Criss why do I
sense you are all alone?
                                                            
Calico looks around the area.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Calico I can hear your heart
beating. I can hear a heart
beating fifty feet away.
And yours is the only heart I
hear. Why is that?
                                                            
Calico is spooked out by what she said. But he has to act
brave.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Just you and I Love.
                                                            
Cassieo chuckles to herself.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
So Captain Calico where is the
crew?
                                                            
                       CALICO
Their is no crew, Love.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
So tell me Calico are we tied to a
dock?
                                                            
                       CALICO
No were in the middle of the
ocean. And now I have a question
for you. Are you a Vampire?
                                                            
Cassieo chuckles.
                                                            

21.

                       CASSIEO KAISER
Oh yes Captain I'm a Vampire. A
very bad Vampire.
                                                            
He is spooked out by what she said, but acts tough.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Well Miss Cassieo did I forget to
mention I'm a pirate, a very bad
pirate.
                                                            
Cassieo chuckles.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
So your not a vampire hunter.
Captain how long before the sun
sets?
                                                            
                       CALICO
About a hour. Why?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Well I'm hungry and I believe I
hear a hog's heart beating.
I was thinking after the sun goes
down I'll butcher the hog and we
can have a nice meal on deck.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I'll meet you top side.
                                                            
Calico gets up and as he exits he looks back at the casket,
his eyes open wide.
                                                            
 
EXT. PORT FAIRCLOTH - EVENING
                                                            
Dusk the street of small shops leading down to the pub and
docks. Most of the shops are closed as Von and Purell walk
arm in arm. Followed by Cambridge and Strong who look like
two zombie bodyguards. Both men have a dark look about them.
Purell is wearing a summer type dress. Von sports a fancy
white shirt.

As they stroll Purell notices a dress shop with lanterns
still lit inside, she peers into the window noticing the
dresses but more so she spots a handsome man ZAK SMITH just
standing their. Purell pulls Von towards the shop door.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
In here Von.
                                                            
 

22.

INT. DRESS SHOP - EVENING
                                                            
The SEAMSTRESS sees Purell through the window. The
seamstress opens the door and invites them in.
                                                            
                       SEAMSTRESS
Miss please have a look.
                                                            
Purell makes her way in. She is looking at few dresses,
touching the sleeves as she makes her way near Zak. Inside
Von stands near the doorway. The seamstress walks into a
back room with a dress. Purell gets near Zak and gives him a
smile. Zak grins back at her.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
I don't believe we have met.
                                                            
She extends her hand to shake his hand.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
I'm Purell Kaiser.
                                                            
Zak extends his hand. Purell's index finger nail is
sharpened to a point like a dagger, she is wearing a charm
bracelet. As their hands meet Purell pricks the top of Zak's
hand with her fingernail, then she shakes hands. Zak felt it
but does not say anything.
                                                            
                       ZAK SMITH
Pleased to meet you Miss.
                                                            
Zak quickly spots beautiful ANNE BONNY looking at dresses.
Anne looks back at them.
                                                            
                       ZAK SMITH (addressing Purell)
I'm Zak Smith and this is my
finesse Miss Anne Bonny.
                                                            
Anne makes a bee line over to them. Anne extends her hand to
Purell.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
Hello, I'm Anne Bonny and you are?
                                                            
Anne smiles at her. Purell a little upset she interrupted
her and Zak then gives her a catty look back, but extends
her hand to shake it.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
I'm Purell Kaiser.
                                                            
Their hands meet and Purell pricks Anne's hand with her
fingernail. Anne quickly pulls here hand back.
                                                            

23.

                       ANNE BONNY
Ouch. You pricked my hand.
                                                            
Anne looks at her hand, on the top of it there is a small
drop of blood.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
Oh I'm sorry dear it must have
been my bracelet.
                                                            
Purell holds her hand up showing the bracelet.
Von standing back by the door.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Purell don't.
                                                            
Purell looks at Von and gives him a evil grin, then looks
back at Zak.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
Zak I have to say, you are the
most handsome man I have seen in a
year.
                                                            
Zak is looking at the back of his hand, where Purell pricked
it their is a small black spot and a drop of blood.
Zak feeling a little dizzy grins back at her. Anne is a
little upset at that remark.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
Excuse me, what are you saying?
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER (snotty attitude)
Anne my dear, what I'm saying is
I'm going to steal Zak away from
you. Do you understand?
                                                            
Anne feeling a little dizzy. Watches as Purell softly runs
the back of her hand down Zak cheek.
Purell looks back at Anne and grins at her.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
No. I don't understand.
                                                            
Purell turns nasty.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
What part don't you understand
TART!
                                                            
Purell slaps Anne in the face then pushes her back into a
near by chair, sitting Anne down. Zak instinctively grabs
Purell's arm from behind her. Purell looks at Zak.
                                                            

24.

                       PURELL KAISER
Zak take your hands off me. Never
touch me again unless I ask you
to.
                                                            
Zak lets go of her and puts his arms down. Zak has a little
sweat on his face. Purell gets in Anne's face.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER (snotty attitude)
Now Miss Bonny do you
understand.I'm stealing your man.
I want you to watch this.
                                                            
Purell flashes her fangs and hisses at Anne then turns to
Zak and puts her hands on his shoulders.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
Zak kiss me.
                                                            
Zak pauses for a second then he and Purell kiss. Purell
looks into Zak's eyes. Zak is under her spell and control.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
Zak I love you.
                                                            
Zak looks a little confused but then.
                                                            
                       ZAK SMITH
Purell I love you.
                                                            
Anne sitting in the chair looks paralyzed and can hardly
move. Her face is sweating and she looks dazed and confused
but tries to reach for Zak. As her left hand comes up Purell
spots her ring and takes it off Anne's finger.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
You don't need this any more. I'm
stealing this as well.
                                                            
Purell takes Zak by the arm.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
Zak were leaving. Follow me.
                                                            
Anne helplessly watches Purell and Zak walking out of the
shop, Von follows. Anne looks at the back of her hand where
Purell pricked her and there is a small black area around
it. Her face covered in sweat. Outside Purell, Zak and Von

Doctor.
                                                            
The seamstress exits the shop. Anne's face flat on the floor

mouth a little. The black mark on the back of her hand is
the size of a quarter.

Anne's father is seated next to the bed watching them.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY (concerned)
Please tell me Doctor their is

                       DOCTOR GRAMBOW
Governor I don't know what it is.
My guess is some type of plague.
And she is weaker by the minute.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY
Is their nothing we can do?
                                                            
                       DOCTOR GRAMBOW

                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
I'm sorry son, you best look
somewhere else.
                                                            
Richard looks distraught, and turns to leave. Then he bursts
out with tears in his eyes to the doctor.
                                                            
                       RICHARD (pleading)
The black mark is going up her arm
to her heart.
                                                            
Richard in despair turns again to leave. Doctor Wickman
looks at his men then back to Richard.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Lad come here. What was this about
a black spot?
                                                            
                       RICHARD
Sir most of her arm has turned
black. It started on her hand but
now its up to her shoulder. It
looks like a black spider web
under her skin.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman looks at his men, like yep that's it.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Gurhard get my doctors case off
the ship. Lad I can't promise you

bag.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR GRAMBOW
You won't let me amputate. You
won't let me bleed her.
                                                            
The door opens as maid Sara enters and is followed by Doctor
Wickman and his men. They don't look like doctors and have
no bedside manner at all. They storm in like their ready for
a fight. Otto and Hinrick move to the other side of the bed.
Gurhard at the foot of the bed and Doctor Wickman gets near
Governor Bonny. Governor Bonny gets a little upset with
their quick entry.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY
What is this?
                                                            
Doctor Wickman quickly moves the blanket off Anne's chest.
He lifts up her blackened arm examining it. Governor Bonny
gets angry.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY (upset)
Get your dirt hands off my
daughter.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman sets her arm down and extends his hand to
Governor Bonny.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
I apologize sir. I'm Doctor Hans
Wickman. At you service.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY
At my service? I want you men out
of my house now.
                                                            
Gurhard moves to the door and shuts it, standing in front of
it. Governor Bonny starts get get up but Doctor Wickman
shoves him back in his seat.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN (forceful)
We can't do that sir.
                                                            
Otto, Hinrick and Gurhard pull out their pistols.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY (confused)
This is mad. What are you robbing
us?
                                                            

29.

                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
No sir. You sent for us to save
Anne and that's what I will try to
do.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY
No no I want you men to leave.
                                                            
Gurhard gets behind Governor Bonny and restrains him in his
chair, his hands on the Governor's shoulders.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Tie them up.
                                                            
 
INT. GOVERNOR BONNY'S HOUSE - BEDROOM - LATER
                                                            
Governor Bonny is tied and gagged in his chair wide eyed
watching Doctor Wickman and his men.
Doctor Grambow and maid Sara are tied and gagged sitting on
the floor. The blanket removed from Anne who is now in her
nightgown unconscious. Otto has a wooded bowl and is cutting
up pieces of garlic and then smashing it with a spoon. Otto
is done and hands the bowl to Doctor Wickman.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Governor Bonny I truly am sorry...
I know this is your daughter. And
I'll try to explain what we have
to do.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman hold up Anne's arm.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
You see this. This is the poison
going through her. Towards the
heart. The poison of a vampire.
                                                            
Governor Bonny upset fights to break free of his bonds but
can't. His voice muffled by the gag. You can see the fear in
his eyes.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
I know. I know. But here is the
proof.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman moves towards Anne, turns her head towards
the Governor, takes his thumb and lifts Anne's upper lip
exposing her fang. The governor's eyes widen in shock.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
The good news if you want to call
it that. Their are no bite marks
on her neck. The bad news is I
            (MORE)

30.

                       DOCTOR WICKMAN (cont'd)
believe she has been pricked by a
vampire.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman shows Governor Bonny the bowl of cut up
mashed garlic.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
This is cut up garlic. I'm going
to rub this on the black sores and
I have to put some in her mouth.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman turns to his men.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Hold her and get your stakes out.
                                                            
Hinrick at Anne feet reaches inside his duster and pulls out
two wooded stakes places them and his pistol on the bed then
holds her by her ankles. Otto positions himself half on the
bed, takes one hand and has Anne by the hair the other hand
under her jaw to open her mouth when the Doctor tells him
to. Gurhard cocks his pistol.
                                                            
                       GURHARD
Silver bullets loaded sir.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman looks over his men to make sure everyone is
ready. Then he puts his hand in the bowl of garlic mix
taking out a handful.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Ready. Otto as soon as I put this
on her arm open her mouth.
                                                            
Otto nods his head. Wickman looks one last time at the
governor then quickly spreads the garlic on Anne's arm.
She quickly starts to trash around. Wickman grabs another
handful out of the bowl. Otto opens her mouth, he can see
her fangs as Wickman stuffs the garlic into her mouth. Otto
lets go.

Anne screams like she is on fire and sits up her eyes open.
Doctor Wickman and Hinrick restrain her.
Gurhard is aiming his pistol at her ready to kill her. Otto
holding a wooded stake above his head ready to stab her.
Anne gasping, spitting out garlic. She is not sure where she
is or who these men are. At last she sees her father.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY (scared)
Father!
                                                            

31.

Doctor Wickman lets her go, she scampers across the bed to
her father with tears in her eyes so glad to see him.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
Father.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman takes the Governor's gag down, then unties
him.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY
Anne are you alright?
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
Of course I'm alright. Why are
these men in my room? Who are
these men?
                                                            
Anne and her father embrace.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY
I'll explain everything.
                                                            
The governor looks up at Doctor Wickman.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Miss show me your teeth.
                                                            
Anne confused about that question.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
I'll not show you my teeth.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman cocks his pistol and points it at her. Anne
confused looks at her father he nods his head yes. She then
lifts her lips showing Wickman her teeth. They are normal
again. Wickman lowers his gun.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Untie these other ones.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - EVENING
                                                            
Dusk, Calico sitting on deck near the wheel, drinking rum,
watching as the sun drops into the horizon. He has his small
fire burning in the iron pot. Its a beautiful quiet night
the only sound is the soothing CREAKING of the ships boards
as the ship gently rocks.

The loud SQUEALING of a pig down below breaks the silence.
The sound jolts Calico his eyes wide open listening.
Then dead silence. Calico's eyes are focused on the
stairwell, he can hear her coming up the steps.

32.


A very different looking beautiful and young Cassieo
appears, her hair now light brown. She is carrying a small
slab of pork ribs. She slowly walks over near him. He is
frozen by her good looks, she knows it and gives him a big
smile. She sets the ribs down on a nearby crate.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Captain Calico Criss.
                                                            
Calico stands up.
                                                            
                       CALICO
At your service Miss.
                                                            
Cassieo smiles again, taking in a deep breath of evening
air.
                                                            
                       CALICO
You look different.
                                                            
Her eyes look up at the stars.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
It must be the star light. People
tell me I look better at night, do
you agree?
                                                            
Calico turns his head and bites his finger then turns back
to her.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Yes I do agree.
                                                            
Cassieo looks around the empty deck, she looks up in the
riggings, then back down and spots the three caskets.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
The "Pegasus", yes this is the
"Pegasus". And you being a pirate.
This is yours now... yes?
                                                            
Calico shakes his head yes.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
May I.
                                                            
Cassieo strolls over to the caskets, Calico right near her
follows, he points out the first two.
                                                            
                       CALICO
These two are empty.
                                                            

33.

Cassieo knells next to the third Rushka's casket putting her
hands on the lid.
                                                            
                       CALICO
You don't want to do that.
                                                            
Cassieo looks up at Calico.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I have to.
                                                            
She slowly opens the casket and sees Rushka's skull and
bones looking back at her. She shuts the lid and lays her
head and hands on it crying and sobbing.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER (upset)
Rushka, Rushka my dear sister why
did they have to kill you.
                                                            
Cassieo stands up, tears rolling down her face, she turns to
Calico.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Can you please hold me?
                                                            
They embrace, her head is on his shoulder. Calico comforts
her.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
They killer her in her sleep. They
didn't have to kill her. And if I
ever find the man who shot her in
the head I'll rip his heart out.
                                                            
Calico eyes open wide and roll.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - NIGHT
                                                            
A small fire is burning, ribs are cooking. Calico and
Cassieo are sitting next to each other, back's against a
wall drinking rum.
                                                            
                       CALICO
A toast to your dear sister
Rushka.
                                                            
They click rum cups in a toast.
                                                            

34.

                       CASSIEO KAISER
Thank you. Calico can you please
bury my sister at sea like you
said you did with Grist and those
other men. Tomorrow while I sleep.
                                                            
Calico nods his head yes. Cassieo has a small map in her
hand and shows Calico, she points out a small island in the
Caribbean.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Here it is, this is the island my
grandfather hid his treasure.
                                                            
Calico points to a spot on the map.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Were about here. That could take
us a month to get their.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Now were partners and agree to
protect each other, you tell no
one I'm a vampire and I tell no
one your a pirate correct?
                                                            
                       CALICO
Till death.
                                                            
They shake hands on it.
                                                            
                       CALICO
And you you say your a vampire? I
don't see any fangs.
                                                            
Cassieo smiles at him.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Would you like to see them?
                                                            
                       CALICO
Just a peek.
                                                            
Cassieo has her mouth closed and runs her tongue around her
front teeth. Calico is moving his face closer for a better
look. Then Cassieo opens her mouth showing fangs and hisses
at him. He is startled, he has the look on his face like she
really is a vampire.

The "Pegasus" slowly drifting into the night with the
smaller "Rumrunner" in tow.

INT. GOVERNOR BONNY'S HOUSE DINNING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Anne is looking much better. She and Governor Bonny, Doctor
Wickman, Doctor Grambow, Otto, Gurhard, and Hinrick are at
the dinning room table, Maid Sara is serving them tea.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Let me start at the beginning so
you have a better understanding.
We are Vampire hunters.
Sponsorship is from the Royal
church. We four are from Germany.
And each and every man on our ship
the "REVENGE" has had a loved one
taken away by a vampire.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
I'm so sorry.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
The vampires even though sometimes
looking human and acting as anyone
else would act. They are really
cold blooded killers. They feed on
human blood and will stop at
nothing to feed.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR GRAMBOW
Oh stop this. Your scaring Anne.
You have no proof of this. Anne's
fever broke because of the
medicines I gave her.
                                                            
                       OTTO
Then how do you explain her fanged
teeth?
                                                            
                       DOCTOR GRAMBOW
Anne has no fangs, dear show them
you beautiful smile.
                                                            
Anne smiles.
                                                            
                       OTTO
Well she did have them.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY
Your not saying my daughter is a
vampire are you?
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
No, no, not a vampire, but I
believe she was pricked by one.
Anne can you please think to the

                       DOCTOR WICKMAN (cont'd)
last day you remember before
getting sick. What were you doing?
                                                            
Anne is trying to remember.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
Everything is foggy.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR GRAMBOW
Anne you don't have to play this
witchcraft game with these men.
                                                            
Anne sadden thinking about Zak.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
My finesse Zak no one can tell me
where he is.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN (perks up)
Someone is missing?
                                                            
                       DOCTOR GRAMBOW
We believe Anne and Zak both had
the fever at the same time. Zak
went for help and is lost until
his fever breaks.
                                                            
                       HINRICK
Or perhaps the vampires got him.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY
That's it. You men are upsetting
the ladies. I insist we end this
now. I have to ask you gentlemen
to leave.
                                                            
                       OTTO
Von and Purell are very good at
what they do.
                                                            
Anne is trying to think back, as the men rise from the table
to leave.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
My parting words Governor, Anne I
do apologize if our style on this
matter was course. We meant no
harm.
                                                            
Anne trying to remember.
                                                            

37.

                       DOCTOR GRAMBOW
Gentlemen in this day and age we
do not believe in witchcraft or
vampires.
                                                            
The men turn to exit and take a few steps to the door. Anne
calls out to them.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
Purell... Purell that was the
woman's name. Doctor Wickman wait.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY
No Anne don't get involved in
this.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
Father I remember bits of it.
Please everyone sit and hear me
out.
                                                            
Everyone sits back down to listen.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
It was late. Zak and I were at the
dress shop.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR GRAMBOW
Oh Anne darling, that's were we
found you. You fell to the floor
and hit your head.
                                                            
                       HINRICK (forceful)
Doctor you let her speak.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR GRAMBOW
Anne the seamstress was at the
shop, she made no mention of
werewolves or vampires.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
No, no before that. I was looking
at a dress, and a very attractive
woman walked in. She was taking to
Zak. I went over to them.
                                                            
Everyone's eyes glued on Anne telling her story.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
Then she said it, she said her
name Purell....Purell Kaiser.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman slaps his hand on the table.
                                                            

38.

                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
I knew it. Their she said her name
Kaiser, Purell Kaiser.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman reaches into his pocket and takes out a
folded piece of paper with a drawing on it, he then unfolds
it.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Governor here is you proof. None
of us ever spoke the name Kaiser
but your daughter just said it,
look here.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman hands the Governor the paper. He looks at the
SKETCH of Von Kaiser's likeness, and on the bottom is
printed "Von Kaiser". Anne excited to see it takes the
drawing and studies it.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
That's the man. This man was in
the shop with her.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY
Anne you can't be sure.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
Oh father I'm sure. I remember
now, and this man was their.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman nods his head to Otto.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Anne please continue.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
I remember, your right Doctor she
pricked me. Then she said it was
her bracelet.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
No, it was her sharp finger nail.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
I looked at the back of my hand
and their was a drop of blood on
it.
                                                            
Then......Anne pauses like she's in dream land.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Take your time.
                                                            

39.

                       ANNE BONNY (worrisome)
I became dizzy....
                                                            
Anne pauses looking worrisome.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
She slapped me. She slapped me in
the face.
                                                            
Then....Anne thinking back has a scary "point of view" flash
back of Purell slapping her, flashing her fangs and hissing
at her this spooks her. Anne jolts backward with a fearful
gasp.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY (anguish)
Then she showed me her fangs and
hissed and me.
                                                            
The men looking at each other.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
That's the last thing I remember.
                                                            
Anne looks a little dazed, maid Sara brings her a cup of tea
and sets it in front of her.
                                                            
                       MAID SARA
Miss Anne, please drink this.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY (sadness)
They took him. They took Zak.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman is looking at Anne.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - AFTERNOON
                                                            
A bright beautiful day. The "Pegasus" is sailing but only
has a few small sails operational, the ones Calico fixed.
                                                            
 
INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - CONTINUOUS
                                                            
Inside the Captains quarters its dark, heavy curtains cover
the windows. Calico and Cassieo are sitting at the table
with a few small candles lit. Calico is drinking rum.
Cassieo has a glass of wine.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
So now you know all the secrets of
vampires. How to kill them, how to
hurt them. A wooden stake through
the heart, a silver bullet through
the head or heart, daylight. And
            (MORE)

40.

                       CASSIEO KAISER (cont'd)
you being a fine swordsman a
silver tipped sword through the
heart.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I see, these are things my dear
mother never taught me.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
My brother, sisters and I traveled
all over Europe, using many
different names.
                                                            
Cassieo chuckles.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
You are one of the few people who
even know my real name. And we had
the very best tutors that's why I
speak English so well. As well as
French, Spanish, German and
Russian.
                                                            
                       CALICO (concerned)
And you can't walk outside now?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
No, I would be dead in a
heartbeat.
                                                            
Calico shows Cassieo a spot on the map by a few islands.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Our problem is finding a crew. And
I didn't tell you this but I have
a large price on my head.
                                                            
Cassieo smiles at him.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER (jokingly)
Oh dear I'm traveling with a
wanted man. And I bet you have a
beautiful woman in every port.
                                                            
                       CALICO (bragging)
I have a few lady friends in every
port. I have to stay on the move.
I'm the most wanted pirate in the
seven seas, every navy is looking
for me.
                                                            

41.

                       CASSIEO KAISER
See we do have a lot in common.
You being hunted by every navy,
and me by vampire hunters.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Their is one thing bad about
having a pirate crew. They all
want to be captain.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
That's were I'll help you. I'll
make sure no one takes over your
ship.
                                                            
Cassieo smiles showing Calico her fangs.
                                                            
                       CALICO
And how can I protect you? If we
have a crew or hit land?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I know we'll tell the crew I'm
your woman. I sleep during the day
because I'm the night watch. I
sail the ship at night that way we
keep moving day or night. And you
did say you would teach me to
sail.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Pirates know of these men women
arrangements.
                                                            
Cassieo gets close to Calico and puts her arm around him.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I'll put on a show, they'll know
I'm you woman, believe me.
                                                            
Calico looks at her and grins.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Calico are you wondering why I
have told you the secrets of the
vampires?
                                                            
                       CALICO
It did cross my mind.
                                                            
Cassieo gets up from the table slowly walking around it.
                                                            

42.

                       CASSIEO KAISER
Were not sure what happened on
this ship, are we. We know I was
left behind. Left behind to die.
We know Rushka was killed. But
what about my brother Von and my
sister Purell, what happened to
them?
                                                            
                       CALICO
I found this ship a drift floating
like a ghost ship. I found Captain
Grist and a few mates dead. Then
your sister. Then you.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I still worry if Von and Purell
some how some way made it off this
ship alive. And if they did, they
will be after our treasure. If we
cross their path we'll have to
kill them before they kill us.
                                                            
                       CALICO (concerned)
That's your brother.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Half brother and if he did get off
alive, why did he leave me here to
die. And how could he let them
kill Rushka.
                                                            
                       CALICO
He's still your brother.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Only in name, I hate him. He
killed our father. He killed him
just for power. Remember with
vampires its all about power.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Maybe the same men who killed
Rushka killed him and Purell and
pitched them over board.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Maybe..let's hope so. The thing
you don't understand is my sisters
and myself feed. Feed on blood
yes. But just to stay alive, just
like you eat. But Von...Von kills
for sport.
                                                            

43.

Cassieo sits down next to Calico.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
One thing Calico. That ring.
Rushka's ring, when we find the
treasure. You can have it all. But
that ring, my sister's ring, I
want it back.
                                                            
Calico looks at the ruby ring on his finger, then slides it
off and sets it in front of Cassieo. Cassieo picks it up.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Now do you trust me?
                                                            
Cassieo smiles and puts the ring on her finger.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
With my life.
                                                            
Calico stands and slowly walks around the table.
                                                            
                       CALICO
We have to find and fit a crew.
                                                            
Cassieo has two velvet pouches with gold coins in front of
her on the table.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
We have this money to use and we
can sell the merchandise below.
Clothing and items that belonged
to my sisters and Von.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Those items are yours.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Were partners Calico. And this is
one reason I know for sure you
didn't kill Rushka.
                                                            
Cassieo raises one velvet pouch of coins.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
At the foot of each casket their
is a hidden trap door where we
kept our gold. Rushka's was still
their. Purell's and Von's is gone.
                                                            
                       CALICO
How did I miss that?
                                                            

44.

                       CASSIEO KAISER
A new pirate trick I've showed
you.
                                                            
                       CALICO
And how are we going to explain
these caskets to a new crew?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
You must be kidding. They are nice
to sleep in. Much better than
laying out on the hard deck or in
a rope hammock. Captain I insist
tonight you sleep in Von's casket.
                                                            
                       CALICO (concerned)
I'm not sure about that.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Trust me Calico you'll sleep like
a baby.
                                                            
Cassieo smiles at him.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
And Captain if you could please
bring up my cello from below.
                                                            
Calico takes a gold coin out of the velvet pouch and places
it in the palm of his hand.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Let me show you a pirate trick.
                                                            
Calico uses this coin magic trick to impress the ladies.
Cassieo looks at the coin in Calico's hand as he covers it
with a piece of cloth.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Now you see it.
                                                            
He quickly removes the cloth and the coin is gone.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Now you don't.
                                                            
Calico gives Cassieo a smile. But she is not to be out done.
She puts out her open hand to Calico.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Put a coin in the palm of my hand.
A old vampire trick.
                                                            

45.

Calico takes another gold coin out of the velvet pouch and
places it in Cassieo's palm. She closes her hand over the
coin as Calico watches. Cassieo is squeezing her fist as
smoke comes out from between her fingers. She opens her hand
and all that is left of the coin is burned ash. She turns
her hand as the black ash falls out of her hand. Calico
looks in disbelief.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - NIGHT
                                                            
Calico's face in a deep sleep. Calico is sound asleep in
Von's casket on deck with a stick propped up holding the lid
up. It's a beautiful night and Cassieo is set up with her
cello. She looks at him sleeping like a baby.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER (to herself)
Calico darling if only you knew.
                                                            
Cassieo starts to play Bach's Suite # 1 in G major, the
"Pegasus" sails slowly away in the dark toeing the
"Rumrunner".
                                                            
 
EXT. PORT JOHNSON - EVENING
                                                            
Port Johnson is a small harbor town that caters to pirates.
Tied to a dock is the huge pirate ship The "EMPRESS" a ship
of the line, there are a few pirates guarding her. Not far
from the docks is the town pub the Sea Shell. Von, Purell,
Zak, Strong and Cambridge approach the door to the pub but
stop to look at the "Empress".
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Now that's a ship.
                                                            
A lady of the night opens the pub's door, inviting them in.
                                                            
                       NIGHT LADY
Care to join us?
                                                            
Von grins at her, as he and the others enter.
                                                            
 
INT. SEA SHELL PUB - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
The pub is crowded. Pirates from the "Empress" are eating,
drinking and loud. Ladies of the night all about, all are
having a merry time. As soon as Purell, Von and crew enter
it starts to get quiet quickly as pirates eye them.

As Purell looks at the pirates they freeze in their tracks
looking back at her beauty. Von not intimidated spots an

46.

open table and guides her to it. They all sit. A bar maid
quickly gets up to them.
                                                            
                       BARMAID
Drink or food?
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
A glass of wine please.
                                                            
                       BARMAID
No wine, only rum or warm beer.
                                                            
Purell disappointed lowers her head slightly shaking it.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
We'll all have rum. What foods do
you have?
                                                            
                       BARMAID
Only stew and bread.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Bring us all stew and bread.
                                                            
                       BARMAID
You pay now, two pieces.
                                                            
She puts her hand out. As Von pulls out his money pouch the
pirates in the pub are watching him. Von reaches in it and
hands her two pieces of eight. She leaves the table and the
pirates start talking, drinking, and moving about again.
Across the room sitting at a table is CAPTAIN CROW. He is a
large man, captain of the "Empress". A merciless pirate and
a gambler.

Next to him is pirate NEPTUNE HORN a younger fit man who is
Crow's first mate. Pirate Horn gets up from the table and
stands in the center of the room. He has a dagger in his
hand and flips it in the air catching it a few times showing
off his skill. Von and Zak are closely watching him. Pirates
near by get out of his way.

Pirate Horn quickly throws the dagger across the room,
it sticks into the wall near a "target" a small square piece
of wood nailed onto the wall.

The barmaid is bringing Von's table their rum and food.
Captain Crow whispers to a pirate at his table, the pirate
gets up and exits the pub. Pirate Horn walks over to
retrieve his dagger then walks back to the center of the
room.
                                                            

47.

                       NEPTUNE HORN (cocky)
Anyone wish to throw the dagger
for a wager.
                                                            
Horn looks around the room for any takers.
Then Captain Crow laughing, speaks out as he stands up.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
What is the wager lad? And don't
waste my time.
                                                            
Captain Crow walks towards center room. People move out of
his way.
                                                            
                       NEPTUNE HORN
A years wage.
                                                            
Captain Crow laughs.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
Tell you what, I win I take your
wage, you win I double it. What
say you?
                                                            
                       NEPTUNE HORN
Done.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
Your throw.
                                                            
Captain Crow stands back to give Horn room. Everyone is
quiet watching Horn getting ready to throw his dagger at the
target. Von's enjoying the show as Horn throws his dagger it
flies across the room sticking into the wall about a inch
below the piece of wood target. Captain Crow laughs.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
A good throw, a good throw indeed.
But men now I have to show you why
I'm the captain of the "Empress"
and your not.
                                                            
Captain Crow turns away from the target takes two steps
farther from it, tips his hat to Purell.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
Miss.
                                                            
Captain Crow quickly turns throwing his dagger. It flies
through the air and hits the target dead center. The crowd
cheers. Pirates congratulate Crow. Purell turns back to her
meal lifts the spoon out of the bowl, looks at it and lets
the stew fall back into the bowl.

48.

She's surprised when two wine glasses are set on the table
near her. She looks up to see Captain Crow holding a bottle
of wine.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW (very polite)
Miss. Can I pour you a glass?
                                                            
Purell smiles at him.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
Yes sir. Please do.
                                                            
Captain Crow takes the cork out of the bottle then pours a
glass for Purell then he looks at Von.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
And you sir?
                                                            
Von holds out the other glass and Crow pours him some wine
then sets the bottle down.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Why thank you. Would you like to
join us?
                                                            
Captain Crow slides a chair over and sits next to Purell.
Von extends his hand for a shake. Other pirates from Crow's
crew are near keeping a good eye on Von's party.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
I'm Count Von Kaiser and this is
my sister Purell.
                                                            
Captain Crow shakes his hand then looks at Purell, who lifts
her wine glass to him then takes a sip.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW (arrogant)
I'm Captain John Crow, I captain
and own the "Empress". You may
have see her outside.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER (ditsy)
Oh my. That large ship docked
outside is yours?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
Aye, Purell, my ship. And your his
sister. My my.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER (with suprise)
And I must say. You and your men
look like pirates.
                                                            

49.

Captain Crow not sure what to make of that remark. He gets a
little cocky. Nearby pirates perk up.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW (cocky)
Aye, this is a pirate town and yes
we are pirates. Very nasty
pirates.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Oh good. That's what I want to be.
A pirate.
                                                            
Captain Crow laughs.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
A pirate. Aye.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Well not just a pirate, but a
pirate captain like you.
                                                            
Captain Crow laughs.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
Its not that easy.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
But I could make it easy.
                                                            
Captain Crow looks around the table sizing them up. He then
looks at some of his nearby pirate crewmen.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW (inquisitive)
And how might you do that?
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
See you and I have a lot in
common. We both love beautiful
things, and we both like a good
wager.
                                                            
Its starting to get quiet in the pub as more people are
trying to listen in. Captain Crow looks at Purell, who gives
him a big smile. Captain Crow gets serious.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW (forceful)
I've killed over twenty men in
duels. To stand where I'm
standing.
                                                            
Von chuckles and smiles.
                                                            

50.

                       VON KAISER
Why, that's even better yet. I've
only killed ten men in pistol
duels myself.
                                                            
Captain Crow is puzzled where this is going, changing the
subject. Addressing Purell.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
Would you like another bottle of
wine?
                                                            
                       VON KAISER (menacing)
No! I don't want a bottle of wine
I want your ship.
                                                            
Captain Crow pulls his pistol. Keeping his hand on it sets
it on the table. Now its very quite in the pub.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
Nobody takes my ship.
                                                            
Von very chipper smiling at Captain Crow.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Not even for a good wager?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
You have nothing I want nothing
worth the "Empress".
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Nothing?
                                                            
Von looking around thinking.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Not even my beautiful sister
Purell?
                                                            
Captain Crow laughs.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
If I wanted your sister I would
just kill you and take her.
                                                            
Von looking disappointed.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
And here I thought you were a man
of wager a man of sport.
                                                            
Captain Crow looks at Purell.
                                                            

51.

                       PURELL KAISER
One thing you don't understand
captain is. I hate my brother he
treats his dogs better than me.
And I'm worth more that that ship
of yours.
                                                            
Purell stands.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
How many men here would die to
have me as their woman?
                                                            
The pirates all cheer to be hers. Purell sits back down. She
looks at Captain Crow as she putting her hand on his.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER (flirtatious)
If you beat him and if you treat
me good. I'll even have your
little pirate babies.
                                                            
The pirates cat call and chuckle in delight at what she
said. Then silence waiting on Captain Crows respond. Crow
looks at Purell a little jittery.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
About those babies?
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER (serious)
As many little pirate babies as
you can father.
                                                            
The pirates cat call and chuckle in delight but as Captain
Crow stands it gets real quite.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN CROW
Von! (a beat) Pistols or daggers!
                                                            
The pirates all cheer for the duel. Captain Crow is standing
in the center of the room ready to make his dagger throw at
the target. He takes aim and throws. The dagger lands about
a inch below the target. The pirates cheer as Crow walks
down to take a look at his dagger. Von steps to the center
takes aim then throws his dagger. A perfect hit bull's eye.
The pirates all cheer. Von raises his arms in victory.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER (bragging)
You may now call me Captain Von
Kaiser.
                                                            
Captain Crow is angry as he pulls his dagger from the wall
and then turns to Von.
                                                            

52.

                       CAPTAIN CROW (angry)
Nobody takes my ship!
                                                            
Captain Crow throws the dagger at Von. It quickly flies
towards Von but Von catches it.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER (pompous)
It's my ship now!
                                                            
Von quickly throws the dagger back at Captain Crow it hits
him in the heart. Crow falls to the ground dead.
All in the pub are silent. Von starts to walk towards the
door.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
My ship is leaving now. If you men
want to be part of the crew... get
aboard.
                                                            
Von continues out and most all of the pirates are following
him out. As Purell is walking out the barmaid looks at her.
                                                            
                       BARMAID
I guess no little pirate babies.
Thats a shame.
                                                            
 
EXT. REVENGE GUN SHIP - MORNING
                                                            
Crewmen are bring the last of their supplies aboard the
"Revenge". On deck Anne Bonny, Governor Bonny, and Doctor
Wickman are saying farewells.
                                                            
                       GOVERNOR BONNY
Anne please, please don't go.
                                                            
                       ANNE BONNY
I have to.
                                                            
The ships bell rings to gather the crew for Doctor Wickman's
announcement. The crew gathers as the Governor gives Anne a
hug. Doctor Wickman introduces Anne.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Men this is Anne Bonny. She will
be going with us. It is most
important we protect her with our
very lives. Not just because she
is a beautify young lady.
                                                            
Doctor Wickman turns and looks at Anne. She grins.
                                                            

53.

                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
But because she is risking her
very life for all of us.
                                                            
The crew cheers.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Miss Bonny has recently spotted
Von Kaiser and knows how he looks
these days.
                                                            
The crew cheers, Wickman quiets them.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
And better yet, she has seen
Purell Kaiser and can identify her
as well.
                                                            
The crew cheers. Wickman quiets them.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
We also know now they were here
but two weeks ago. They left on a
merchant ship heading West.
Revenge is ours! Our loved ones
they took from us will be
revenged!
                                                            
The crew cheers!
British officer CAPTAIN ROGG approaches Doctor Wickman.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN ROGG
Sir the Royal Navy has sent my
orders, I'm under your command for
the next eight months.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
The Royal Church has it's ways.
                                                            
Captain Rogg shows Doctor Wickman a map and points to a
location on it.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN ROGG
Were still fitting our ships,
we'll meet up with you in two
weeks here.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR WICKMAN
Very well Captain Rogg.
                                                            
Captain Rogg salutes Doctor Wickman.
                                                            
 

54.

EXT. EMPRESS PIRATE SHIP - EVENING
                                                            
All of Von's new nasty looking pirate crew is gathered on
deck waiting to hear a few words from their new captain. Von
neatly dressed is making his way through the pirates from
the bow to the captain's deck making eye contact with the
pirates as he does. He stops and turns to address them.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Most of you men have been at sea
for years, I have not.
                                                            
The pirate crew intensely listen to him.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Most of you men have been pirates
all your life, I have not.
                                                            
Von looking over his new crew as he speaks.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
But this is my ship and I'm your
captain. So I guess I have to
prove a few things to you. Who
here is the strongest man?
                                                            
The pirates look around at each other.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Come on, don't be shy, who amongst
you is a killer, a real killer?
                                                            
The pirates look around at each other. Von laughs at them.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
No one will fight me to the death
for this ship? I'll even let you
have my sister Purell if you kill
me.
                                                            
Purell is standing with zombie looking Zak Smith, Strong,
and Cambridge. Who are still under her spell and control.
Zak takes a step forward but Purell puts her arm out and
stops him.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
No!
                                                            
Zak stands down.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER (angry)
What do I have here a crew of
Nancy girls! I'll use no weapons,
you can use your sword and a
            (MORE)

55.

                       VON KAISER (cont'd)
dagger.
                                                            
Von raises his arms turning showing he's unarmed.
                                                            
PIRATE CRENNEL a large nasty looking pirate makes his way
through the men up towards Von. He hands off his pistol to a
pirate, he has his sword in one hand and his dagger in the
other. All the crew still watching as Crennel is about five
feet away from Von.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
What's you name pirate?
                                                            
                       CRENNEL
Crennel, sir.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Very well Crennel, show me no
quarter, because I'll show none.
                                                            
                       CRENNEL
Very well. Sir. I'll just kill
you.
                                                            
Crennel grits his teeth as he pumps himself up. The two men
get closer and eye each other. Von smiles at him.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER (taunting)
Well do something you bloody tart.
                                                            
Crennel swings his sword at Von's head, Von ducks down and
as Crennel's arm passes over Von punches Crennel in the
ribs, everyone can hear them BREAK. Crennel stagers in pain
then quickly turns and thrusts his sword at Von's chest, it
misses as Von traps Crennel's right arm under his left. He
smashes Crennel's right forearm with his right forearm,
everyone can hear Crennel's forearm BREAK.

Crennel in a lot of pain manages to hold onto Von and sticks
his dagger into Von's back right shoulder blade, it has no
effect on Von. Von places both his hands on Crennel's face,
looks him in the eye, smiles, and then SNAPS his neck.
Crennel falls dead to the deck. The crew staring at Von as
he casually brushes himself off. Pirate DASH FULTON is
standing nearby.
                                                            
                       DASH FULTON
Sir, you have a dagger stuck in
your back.
                                                            
Von with his right hand reaches back over his shoulder and
pulls the dagger out of his back, he looks at it, then

56.

throws it across the deck. THUMP it sticks in the main mast
post.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Let that remind you who the
captain is on this ship.
                                                            
The crew looking at the dagger stuck in the mast post.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - DAY
                                                            
A beautiful day as the "Pegasus" cuts through the sea.
Calico is behind the wheel. Looking through his spyglass,
off in the distance he spots three rag tag pirates, Pirate
PETER SMITH, Pirate TAR JONES and Pirate CATSKIN on a poor
looking bamboo raft with rags as a sail. They are waving,
yelling for help.
                                                            
 
INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
In the captains quarter its dark as Calico enters moving
aside a heavy curtain. Heavy curtains cover the windows to
keep the light out for Cassieo's protection from light. He
goes over to her casket and taps on it. Cassieo lifts the
lid a few inches.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Their are three pirates stranded
on a raft a few miles out. I have
to pick them up.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I understand Calico. Remember our
plan, I'm your woman, I sleep
during the day. I'm scared Calico
but I trust you.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - LATER
                                                            
Calico is throwing a line over the side. He helps as the
three rag tag pirates climb over the side onto the deck.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
Thank you sir. Thank you.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
You saved our lives sir.
                                                            
They make introductions.
                                                            

57.

                       PETER SMITH
Sir, I'm Peter this is Tar and
this is Catskin.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I'm Captain Calico Criss, welcome
aboard the "Pegasus".
                                                            
Calico notices the "p" scar on Peters wrist. Peter tries to
hide it, then Criss shows them his "p" scar.
                                                            
                       CALICO
You be pirate?
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
Aye sir, all of us. We were
shipped wrecked about two months
ago.
                                                            
Calico hands them tin cups, then pours them some rum.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Sir their are ten more poor souls
on a small island just to the
West.
                                                            
Pirate Tar points West. Calico notices hanging from Tar's
hand hanging down a leather cord, wrapped through his
fingers and thumb and tied at his wrist with a lead ball
tied and wrapped to the end of it. A pirates choking weapon.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
Its not far. We could be their
before the sun sets.
                                                            
 
EXT. MAROONED ISLAND - EVENING
                                                            
The sun is just setting, the Pegasus is at anchor near the
island beach.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - EVENING
                                                            
The last of the ten stranded pirates is helped aboard.
Calico looks over the thirteen new pirates he has on board.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Welcome aboard the "Pegasus". I'm
Captain Calico Criss.
                                                            
Pirate VICTOR QUINN stands out among the men, he's taller
and ruff looking. He is in charge of the other pirates.
                                                            

58.

                       VICTOR QUINN
I'm Victor, I was the first mate
on the "LONG SWORD" pirate ship
before she when down taking our
Captain Beech with her.
                                                            
Calico nods his head to him.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Victor.
                                                            
Pirate Victor is looking around the ships deck.
                                                            
                       VICTOR QUINN
Where's your crew captain? I don't
see any crewmen.
                                                            
                       CALICO
They were killed in a battle we
had. So now its just me and my
first mate. She's asleep right
now.
                                                            
                       VICTOR QUINN
She? Their's a woman on board?
                                                            
The pirates look at each other.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Yes, and she's my woman. That's
rule number one on this ship. See
that captain's door?
                                                            
The pirates look at the captain's door.
                                                            
                       CALICO
No one except her and I go through
that door. Is that understood?
                                                            
The pirates agree.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Rule number two. No one touches
her. Is that understood?
                                                            
The pirates agree. Criss looks at Victor.
                                                            
                       VICTOR QUINN
Aye sir.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Then we should get along just
fine. I live by the code.
                                                            

59.

                       PETER SMITH
We to captain. We live and die by
the code.
                                                            
Calico is looking at the sun just about to go down.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Miss Cassieo will be out here
shortly. She runs the night crew
for me. Her and I will split you
men, half with me sailing the day.
Half with her sailing the night
                                                            
A slender nervous pirate DOCTOR TREESAP, who wears wire
rimmed glasses steps forward.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP (nervous)
Sir, I'm Doctor Treesap, I was the
physician on the Long Sword.
                                                            
Victor barks out.
                                                            
                       VICTOR QUINN (angry)
You ain't no doctor!
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
I have helped many a wounded
pirate.
                                                            
                       VICTOR QUINN
Helped them to a early grave.
                                                            
The pirates laugh at Doctor Treesap. Pirate Tar lowers his
tattered shirt exposing a large ugly scar on his back
shoulder.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Captain Calico take a look at
this.
                                                            
Calico's eyes widen as he looks at the ugly scar.
Pirate Tar with his fingers showing the size of a dime.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
It was a mini ball only this big.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP (nervous)
Your still alive.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
The infection you gave me lasted
two months.
                                                            

60.

Pirate Tar gets angry. He grabs Treesap and looks like he's
going to hit him. Calico stops it.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Rule number three. No fighting
amongst ourselves on this ship.
                                                            
The sun has gone down and the captain's door opens. All the
pirates are fixed on it. Beautiful Cassieo steps out. The
pirates are awe struck as she walks over near Calico and
takes his arm.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Captain what do we have here?
                                                            
                       CALICO
These are pirates I picked up that
were ship wrecked.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Pirates you say. That's good. Just
like you and I.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Miss. Your a pirate?
                                                            
Cassieo smiles at him.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Yes I'm a pirate. A very bad
pirate.
                                                            
Pirate Tar gives her a big smile back. Calico starts making
introductions.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Cassieo this is Tar.
                                                            
Cassieo shakes his hand.
                                                            
                       CALICO
And this is Peter.
                                                            
She shakes his hand.
                                                            
                       CALICO
And this is Doctor Treesap.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Doctor?
                                                            
                       VICTOR QUINN (angry)
He ain't no doctor!
                                                            

61.

Pirate Tar pulls his shirt down to show her the ugly scar.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES (upset)
Here miss! Look what that butcher
did to me.
                                                            
Cassieo sees the scar then gently runs her fingers over it.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Captain, maybe I could help the
good doctor. You know helping the
wounded.
                                                            
                       CALICO
That's not a good idea. You know
how you hate the sight of blood.
                                                            
Cassieo grins at Criss.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I have an idea captain. Why don't
we make a fire and slaughter a few
of your chickens. We can all have
a nice meal.
                                                            
Pirate Tar eager to help her.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
I'll help you Miss. And Miss I
want to be part of the night crew.
                                                            
All the pirates want to be in her favor.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
Captain put me down for the night
crew.
                                                            
Cassieo making her way to the stairs to go below, all the
pirates following her. All except Victor. Calico looks at
Victor.
                                                            
                       VICTOR QUINN
I'll sail the day sir with you. If
that's alright?
                                                            
Calico nods his head at him.
                                                            
 
EXT. EMPRESS PIRATE SHIP - EVENING
                                                            
Von and Pirate Dash are with crewmen on deck showing Von how
to fire a swivel cannon. Von aims the cannon then lights the
wick the cannon fires BOOM. Von is pleased he's learning

62.

everything about his new ship and new pirates life.

He walks by four pirates working hard but struggling pulling
up the main sail, all four tugging on the line.
Von takes hold of the line, and looks at the pirates.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Let it go. I have it.
                                                            
The pirates let the line go and are surprised to see Von by
himself hoist the sail up with his super human strength.
Von is tying the line down as Purell approaches him.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
Von, can we talk in private?
                                                            
 
INT. EMPRESS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
In the Captain's quarters Purell is sipping a glass of wine
sitting at the table with Von. He is drinking a mug of rum.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
I was thinking after we have
grandfather's fortune we can
purchase a large vila in South
America.
                                                            
Von shaking his head no.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
I don't think so. I'm in no hurry
to get grandfather's treasure.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
No hurry? That was our plan.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
The plans have changed.
                                                            
Purell is upset and bites her bottom lip.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
Von what do you mean the plans
have changed?
                                                            
Von smiles at her.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
I like being a pirate.
                                                            
Purell puts her head down shaking it no. Shes upset.
                                                            

63.

                       PURELL KAISER
Von don't do this to me. These men
are foul, this ship is foul.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Purell, were running from vampire
hunters. I'm not running anymore.
This is perfect. Their in a ship,
were in a ship, a warship. We'll
sink them. No more hunters.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
And what if they sink us first, or
have the whole Royal Navy after
us?
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
You saw how quickly I got this
ship. So what is to stop me from
getting ten or twenty more. A
whole fleet of pirate ships.
                                                            
Purell stands and starts to get salty with Von.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
You are either going mad or are
drunk from drinking to much.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
And blood, this has never been so
easy. If your hungry just grab a
pirate. When your done with him
just throw him over board, no one
cares.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
These pirates are fowl, it's like
sucking the blood out of a rat.
                                                            
Von stands and gets salty right back at her.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Dear sister any time you want off,
just say the word.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER (angry yelling at him)
You would like to leave me behind.
So all the treasure is yours. Just
like you left Cassieo and Rushka
behind!
                                                            
Von gets really angry at her and shows his fangs.
                                                            

64.

                       VON KAISER (angry)
We did what we had to do that
night!
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
No Von. You did what you had to
do. I blame you for our sisters
deaths.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER (very angry)
Don't you ever say their names
again!
                                                            
Purell seeing Von is upset is afraid of him and sits back
down and gathers herself.
                                                            
                       PURELL KAISER
I'm sorry, I just miss our
sisters.
                                                            
Von calms down and sits back down.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Purell, I miss them as well. And
who knows maybe they did get off
the ship.
                                                            
His eyes have a red demon glow.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - NIGHT
                                                            
The "Pegasus" is cutting through the sea. On deck near the
bow pirate Victor, PIRATE MILO and PIRATE RINGER are
listening to Cassieo playing the cello. Pirate Tar is behind
the wheel. Cassieo finishes her song and retires into the
captains quarters.
                                                            
                       VICTOR QUINN
Tonight's the night I take over
this ship. I'm going through that
door.
                                                            
Milo and Ringer look at the closed captain's door. Victor
holds up his knife for them to see.
                                                            
                       VICTOR QUINN
I'm going in their and I'm going
to slit Captain Calico's throat
from ear to ear.
                                                            
Victor tucks the knife behind his hand.
                                                            

65.

                       RINGER
What about Miss. Cassieo?
                                                            
                       VICTOR QUINN
I'm not worried about no woman.
The next time you see me walk out
of that door I'll be your new
captain.
                                                            
The three pirates start walking towards the wheel. Pirate
Tar is behind the wheel as Milo and Ringer approach him.
They are going to distract him.
                                                            
                       MILO
Tar do you think we need more trim
on that sail?
                                                            
While Pirate Tar looks up at the sails, Victor slips around
behind him making his way next to the captain's door.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
No they look fine to me, but we
could use a better breeze.
                                                            
                       MILO
We can't sleep, we'll sit up here
with you for awhile.
                                                            
Milo and Ringer watch as Victor slowly opens the door. He
sneaks in and shuts the door behind him. Milo and Ringer
look at each other as the "Pegasus" cuts through the water.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MORNING
                                                            
The sun is rising. Milo and Ringer are still watching the
closed door. The door slowly opens, Captain Calico emerges
then bends back into the doorway dragging something. Milo
and Ringer walk over to take a better look. Calico is
dragging out the dead body of Victor. Calico sees Milo and
Ringer and calls them over.
                                                            
                       CALICO
You two, wrap this body for burial
find a plank and get all the hands
on deck.
                                                            
 

66.

EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - LATER
                                                            
A somber moment for the burial at sea for Victor. Milo and
Ringer are holding the end of the plank Victor's wrapped
body is on. All the pirates quietly waiting for Calico to
say a few words. Calio gets near the plank.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I shall say a few words. Last
night Victor sneaked into my
quarters with the idea to slit my
throat and take over my ship.
                                                            
Calico eyes the pirates. He runs the blade of Victor's knife
across his neck in a cutting motion.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Bad idea.
                                                            
Calico lifts the plank and Victor's body slides off into the
sea. Calico walks away. The "Pegasus" sails on with the
"Rumrunner" in tow.
                                                            
 
EXT. PORT AUGUSTO - DAY
                                                            
Port Augusto is a trading port that tolerates pirates for
their goods. Three ships are tied to the docks. Near by the
"Pegasus" pirates roll barrels of water and rum down a ramp
onto her deck. Others carrier sacks of rice and grains on
board.
                                                            
 
INT. PUB AMAYA - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
The pub is not crowded this time of day but sitting at a
table is Calico, Peter Smith, and Pirate Tar talking and
drinking rum. Calico is counting out gold coins and hands
them to Pirate Peter.
                                                            
                       CALICO
How many new crewmen.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
Fourty more good hands.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Here is the last of the gold, make
sure we have all the supplies for
our voyage.
                                                            

67.

                       PETER SMITH
We have food, water, rum, and
extra power. We sold many of Miss.
Cassieo's belongings.
                                                            
                       CALICO
The merchant didn't have enough
money to buy all her items
including the two caskets. I told
him we'll be back to collect on
anything he sells.
                                                            
The door opens and Doctor Treesap walks over to Calico, he's
carrying a sword in its sheath. He hands the sword to
Calico.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP
The blacksmith had your sword
ready. He's still polishing your
dagger. He put the silver tip on
it.
                                                            
Calico inspects the sword. It has a silver tip and a pure
silver inlay runs down the blade.
                                                            
                       CALICO
This looks fine. We've been here
four days. Tonight we sail. Pass
the word.
                                                            
Treesap hands Calico a pouch. Calico looks in it, it's
filled with silver ball shot. He takes three out inspects
them and puts them in his pocket. He hands the pouch back to
Treesap.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Divide these amongst the crew.
Tell them not to use these silver
shot unless Cass or myself say so.
                                                            
Calico is interrupt by the sound of horses riding up outside
the pub. He looks at the window and sees it's ten Spanish
cavalry men in uniform dismounting.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
They tell us the Spanish soldiers
won't bother us. They think we
hate the British.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I hope they're right.
                                                            

68.

The soldiers enter. A few sit at tables another approaches
the bar maid. LIEUTENANT CARLOS approaches Calico.
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS
Good afternoon, have you pirates
sunk any Brit's lately?
                                                            
Lieutenant Carlos smiles at Calico.
                                                            
                       CALICO
We'll be out tonight looking for
them.
                                                            
The Lieutenant smiles, pats Calico on the arm, then returns
to his men.
                                                            
                       CALICO
You men get back on the ship. I
have to pick up my dagger at the
blacksmith shop. I'll catch up.
                                                            
Calico and his men start to leave the pub. The Spanish
soldiers look at them as they leave. One Soldier makes solid
eye contact with Calico.
                                                            
 
INT. BLACKSMITH STABLE SHOP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Calico is inspecting his new silver tipped dagger. The
BLACKSMITH is nearby.
                                                            
                       CALICO
You do nice work.
                                                            
                       BLACKSMITH
I've been doing this work all my
life.
                                                            
Calico and the blacksmith hear horses ride up to the stable
doors. Calico looks and sees a cloud of dust, its the same
ten Spanish cavalry soldiers. Calico looks at the blacksmith
then back to the soldiers dismounting.
                                                            
                       BLACKSMITH
Shoes for their horses.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Thanks again.
                                                            
Calico starts to walk out but as soon as he reaches the
doorway the soldiers pull their pistols and aim them at
Calico. A soldier disarms Calico. Lieutenant Carlos

69.

approaches Calico smiles at him then looks at one of the
soldiers.
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS
This is the man?
                                                            
The soldier nods his head yes.
                                                            
 
INT. BLACKSMITH STABLE SHOP - LATER
                                                            
The blacksmith standing in the stable doorway watches as
Calico hands are tied sitting on a horse. The cavalry men
ride off with him.
                                                            
 
EXT. FORT AUGUSTO - EVENING
                                                            
The sun is setting. Near by the stables MAJOR SANTOS the
cavalry fort commander, a harsh arrogant man is talking with
CAPTAIN DOMINGO. The men are standing near two of Major
Santos's beautiful saddled Andalusian Spanish horses. One
horse is jet black the other white.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
She purchased these for me in
Bocado Stud Spain.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN DOMINGO
They are the finest horses I have
ever seen Sir.
                                                            
They are interrupted as Lieutenant Carlos walks over with
Calico, hands tied behind his back, flanked by four soldiers
with muskets.
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS
Sir. I have this pirate.
                                                            
Major Santos puts his hand up to silence Lieutenant Carlos.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
Can't you see I'm talking with
Captain Domingo. But I'm glad both
of you are here now. I want you to
know this.
                                                            
The Major pats the black horse on the neck.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
These two horses mean everything
to me. My daughter had them sent
to me from Boca-do Stud Spain
before she passed on. This black
            (MORE)

70.

                       MAJOR SANTOS (cont'd)
one is Maximo.
                                                            
He pats Maximo on the neck then moves over to the white
horse.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
This one is Octavio.
                                                            
He pats Octavio on the neck.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
At all cost. I want every man at
this fort to protect these horses
with their very life....Is this
clear!
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS
Yes sir.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN DOMINGO
Yes sir.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
These horses are my very life. Now
what about this pirate?
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS
This is a wanted pirate. Wanted by
the British.
                                                            
Lieutenant Carlos reaches in his pocket and hands the Major
a folded poster. The Major unfolds it and looks at a drawing
likeness of Calico Criss, with the words printed "WANTED
DEAD OR ALIVE", "Pirate Calico", "5000 pieces of eight", THE
ROYAL NAVY".
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS
This is Captain Calico Criss.
                                                            
The Major gets angry and yells at Calico.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS (angry and loud)
You are no captain! He's a
captain.
                                                            
The Major motions to Captain Domingo.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
Lock him up. No no wait.
                                                            
The Major approaches the solider holding Calico's sword,
pistols, dagger, and compass. He takes Calico's sword and

71.

fixes it to a leather strap on his horse Maximo.
He then takes Calico's pistols looks at them and reads the
engraving on Captain's Grist's pistol. He looks at Calico.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
You stole this.
                                                            
The Major puts Calico's pistols, dagger and compass in a
saddle bag on Maximo.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
I have a much better idea.
Tomorrow the British envoy will be
here to discuss our truce with
them.
                                                            
The Major mounts Maximo. Captain Domingo mounts Octavio. The
Major looks down at Calico and The Lieutenant.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS (forceful)
Lieutenant take this pirate into
the courtyard. Tie him to the
post. Take these four soldiers
with you. And shoot him.
                                                            
Calico's eyes open wide.
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS (nervous)
Sir I have never done a firing
squad.
                                                            
The Major laughs.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS (sarcastically)
Then. Lieutenant cut off his head
and put it in a sack for me.
                                                            
                       CALICO
That's not necessary.
                                                            
The Major smiles at Calico.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
Oh but it is. Tomorrow when the
British envoy arrive. I will
present them with your sword and
pistols. Then I will reach into
the sack and present them with
your head.
                                                            
The Major laughs.
                                                            

72.

                       MAJOR SANTOS
Captain can you see the looks on
their faces when I pull out pirate
Calico's head.
                                                            
The Major laughs, the Captain smiles.
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS
But Sir.
                                                            
The Major gets stern.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS (forceful)
These are your orders. Ready, aim,
fire, dead pirate, cut off his
head.
                                                            
The Major slowly starts to walk Maximo off then stops his
horse. He looks back at Lieutenant Carlos.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
Lieutenant, Captain Domingo and I
are riding into town now. This
only takes us a few minutes.
Before I arrive at town, I want to
hear gunshots. So I know this
pirate is dead. Do you understand?
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS
Yes Sir.
                                                            
Major Santos smiles at Calico.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
See pirate Calico, with God's help
my plan is to rid the Caribbean of
pirates.
                                                            
Calico grins back at him.
                                                            
                       CALICO
If you want to make God laugh,
tell him your plans.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS (angry)
Shoot him! Then cut off his head!
                                                            
Major Santos and Captain Domingo slowly ride away.
                                                            
 

73.

EXT. FORT AUGUSTO COURT YARD - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Torches light the area. Calico is tied with a thick rope to
the wood firing post. On the wall behind him, their are many
bullet holes from previous executions. Lieutenant Carlos
offers Calico a blind fold, he shakes his head no. The
Lieutenant moves to his position with the firing squad,
takes out his sword and raises his arm with it. Calico has a
worried look on his face.
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS
Ready!
                                                            
The soldiers ready their muskets.
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS
Aim!
                                                            
The soldiers aim their muskets at Calico. Calico's eyes meet
the Lieutenant's. The lieutenant's eyes open wide. He is
looking above Calico on the top of the wall. Behind Calico
is a dark shadow of a human like gargoyle vampire with its
wings outstretched. The Lieutenant points his sword at it.
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS (concerned)
What is that?
                                                            
The soldiers look up at it, it hisses and shows it fangs to
them. It flaps its wings and flies down landing on the top
of the post Calico is tied to, its claw like talons dig into
the wood post.
                                                            
                       LIEUTENANT CARLOS
Shoot that beast!
                                                            
 
EXT. DIRT ROAD TO TOWN - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Major Santos and Captain Domingo riding down the road, hear
four muskets shots from the fort. They stop their horses.
They look at each other. The Major grins at the Captain.

Dead pirate.
                                                            
They ride on.
                                                            
 
EXT. FORT AUGUSTO COURT YARD - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
The gargoyle vampire is tugging at the post, its wings
flapping trying to pull the post free from the ground.
Calico's eyes look up, he's scared but can't do a thing

74.

about it. The soldiers terrified are trying to reload their
muskets. One soldier his hands are shaking drops his musket
ball then his musket, he runs for cover.

Another so nervous he can't get his ram rod down the barrel.
He drops his musket and runs for cover. Another is on his
knees praying to hold back the beast. The gargoyle vampire
is pulling and pulling flapping its wings upwards. Calico
looks up at it and then closes his eyes.

At last the post breaks free of the ground. Lieutenant
Carlos is frozen with fear, his sword pointed at the vampire
as it takes off with Calico. It lifts Calico up and over the
wall then out of sight.
                                                            
 
EXT. OUTSIDE THE FORT - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
The gargoyle vampire is flying, flapping its wings getting
higher and higher. Calico opens his eyes to see the fort
below him and that he seems to be floating in the air
leaving the area.
                                                            
 
EXT. FARTHER OUTSIDE THE FORT - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
The gargoyle vampire flying over a jungle area is struggling
with Calico's weight to keep above the trees and palm trees.
The bottom of the post is hitting the treetops and the
vampire can't hold on any longer, it lets go of the post
with Calico. He drops through the air, crashing into tree
branches and vines on his way down.

The SNAPPING branches are breaking his fall. Half way down
the tree the post gets stuck on a thick jungle vine. Calico
is up in the vines. Hes looking around measuring his
situation, still tied to the post stuck in the vines he
tries jerking his body to free himself. With a loud CRACK
the vine breaks sending Calico barreling down towards the
ground. He lets out a shriek.

He sails down in a upright position. The post sticks in the
ground with Calico in a standing position. He struggles with
the post and the ropes but they won't budge. He's stuck in
the dark jungle.
                                                            
 
EXT. FORT AUGUSTO - NIGHT
                                                            
Lieutenant Carlos and his cavalry men are saddling and
mounting their horses to go after Calico.
                                                            
 

75.

EXT. WOODS - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
It is dark and quiet in the thick jungle. Fog hangs in the
air. Calico is tied to the post. He's tired from struggling
to free himself. Crickets start CHIRPING. Calico's eyes look
around the area. A frog CROCKS. He looks around, then its
silent. The HOWLING of a wild dog breaks the silence. He
perks up. His eyes scan the area. The BUZZING sound of large
insects about him upset him.

Its silent for a moment then he hears something steering in
the tall grass. Then the SNAP of a branch breaking. Calico's
eyes scan the area then open wide in fear as he sees large
white fangs coming out of the tall grass. He sees it's a
large fierce looking wild dog. The dog shows his teeth then
GROWLS at him as it makes its way closer to him.
                                                            
                       CALICO (to himself nervous)
Not good.
                                                            
The dog gets nearer still GROWLING and then stops. The dog
hears something rustling through the jungle and takes off
running into the dark jungle. Calico breathes a sigh of
relief. He hears something approaching off to his side
rustling through the jungle.

He looks into the dark. He is shocked when a FLARED NOSTRIL
PUFFS at him. Maximo's horse face is close to him, then
Octavio's horse face. Their nostrils puff with the thick
fog. Calico has a look of disappointment thinking he's
recaptured. The leather saddle SOUND as the rider dismounts.
He looks to see who it is.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Calico are you alright?
                                                            
Cassieo approaches Calico, she has his dagger out and starts
cutting the ropes behind on his hands.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Am I glad to see you.
                                                            
Cassieo has freed his hands and is cutting the ropes around
his feet.
                                                            
                       CALICO
How did you find me?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
The blacksmith came to the ship
and told us the Spanish took you.
                                                            
Calico motions to the horses.
                                                            

76.

                       CALICO
Where did you get these horses.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I stole them from town.
                                                            
                       CALICO
That's Major Santos's horse.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Who's Major Santos?
                                                            
                       CALICO
A Major who wants to put my head
in a poke.
                                                            
Cassieo stands, Calico's free from the post. Cassieo hands
Calico Maximo's reins.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
We have to be quiet. Cavalrymen
are riding up and down the roads
looking for you.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Were not out of the woods yet.
                                                            
Cassieo smiles at Criss.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
You say the cutest things.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Did you see a big ugly thing
flying around here flapping its
wings?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
No... lets get outta here.
                                                            
Calico is near Maximo's head.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Maximo good to see you to.
                                                            
They mount up and start riding off into the dark wooded
jungle.
                                                            
 
EXT. DIRT ROAD TO TOWN - NIGHT
                                                            
Major Santos and Captain Domingo are walking down the dark
dusty road back to the fort.
                                                            

77.

                       MAJOR SANTOS (angry)
If I ever find the person who
stole my horses, I'll have them
shot.
                                                            
Just then around the bend in the road out of the darkness
galloping at full speed Calico on Maximo, Cassieo on
Octavio. Major Santos can't believe his eyes their headed
right at him. Captain Domingo moves out of their way but
Major Santos stands in the middle of the road waving his
arms for them to stop, he yells.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
Stop!
                                                            
Calico and Cassieo gallop past him on either side, knocking
him to the ground in a cloud of dust. The Major no sooner
gets to his feet when his cavalrymen on horseback round the
bend headed right at him. He raises his arms and yells at
them.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
Stop!
                                                            
The cavalrymen pull back on their reins stopping just before
trampling Major Santos into the ground. Major Santos grabs
the reins of a horse and orders the solider off.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
Give me this horse!
                                                            
The cavalry man dismounts and Major Santo mounts his horse.
Captain Domingo mounts a horse.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
My orders no shooting. Don't shoot
my horses by mistake! Pull out
your sabers.
                                                            
Soldiers put their pistols away. Santos and his men pull out
their sabers.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN DOMINGO
They can't get far, it takes time
for the ship to make sail.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
That ship has cannon, lets go!
                                                            
The Major and his men ride after Calico.
                                                            
 

78.

EXT. SIDE DIRT ROAD TO TOWN - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Calico and Cassieo are stopped on a the road.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I'm sorry we took the wrong fork
in the road, we have to go back
and take the West fork.
                                                            
They turn their horses around and gallop away into the dark.
                                                            
 
EXT. DIRT ROAD TO TOWN - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Major Santos and his cavalry are approaching the fork in the
road when he spots Calico and Cassieo getting back on the
main road.
                                                            
                       MAJOR SANTOS
Their they are!
                                                            
Major Santos points his sword like its a cavalry charge,
they chase after Calico and Cassieo.
                                                            
 
EXT. DIRT ROAD TO TOWN - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Calico and Cassieo riding hard approach a wooded bridge
spanning a deep gully. The horse's hoofs make a loud
CLOPPING sound as their hoofs hit the wood planks. After
they cross the bridge, Cassieo pulls back her reins stopping
Octavio.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER (screams)
Stop!
                                                            
Calico pulls back Maximo's reins then turns him, he looks
back to see the Major and his cavalry approaching the
bridge. Then BOOM a large explosion, the bridge flies apart.
The impact knocks Major Santos and Captain Domingo off their
horses. Then another explosion BOOM! The lit gun power
lights the night sky, pieces of bridge fly everywhere, a
large plume of smoke.
                                                            
Calico strains his eyes looking into the smoke then sees a
shadow carrying a lit torch, its Pirate Tar running out of
the smoke. Tar drops the torch and Cassieo is their to pick
him up. Pirate Tar mounts the back of Octavio behind
Cassieo. They ride up next to Calico. Pirate Tar's face is
covered in black power soot.
                                                            

79.

                       TAR JONES
Aye, Captain how did you like that
for a rescue?
                                                            
                       CALICO
Tar your my new firstmate.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Hey I thought I was your
firstmate?
                                                            
Calico looks at her and winks. Cassieo smiles as she kicks
Octavio as they ride off towards the ship. The cavalry men
across the gully start shooting at them but Major Santos is
pushing their guns down yelling at them, hitting them with
his hat.
                                                            
 
EXT. CARIBBEAN SEA - NIGHT
                                                            
The "Empress" has just captured a merchant ship. The two
ships are tied together as more pirates from the "Empress"
board the merchant. Crewmen on the merchant ship have their
hands up surrendering to the pirates who have their pistols
and swords ready.
                                                            
 
EXT. EMPRESS PIRATE SHIP - EVENING
                                                            
On deck near the mast, Von Kaiser is in a good mood, he's
sporting a new fancy captain's hat and is approaching two of
his crewmen who are holding a prisoner British CAPTAIN
EGGEND, in full dress uniform. Von looks down at Eggend's
new Calvary leather boots.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
I must get myself a pair of those
boots.
                                                            
Von eyes Eggend, then brushes some dust from Captain
Eggend's shoulder.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Captain Eggend my men tell me you
have hung over a hundred pirates.
Is that true Sir?
                                                            
Captain Eggend not answering, looks straight ahead.
                                                            
PIRATE GINNESS interrupts, carrying over a small treasure
chest. He sets the treasure chest in front of Von and opens
its. It is filled with silver coins.
                                                            

80.

                       GINNESS
Sir. Your treasure.
                                                            
Von looks at it, then around at his crewmen.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER (pompous)
This is not my treasure.
                                                            
Pirate Ginness and the crewmen look a little confused at
what Von just said. Von takes a rope that has a hangman's
noose on one end and throws it up over the mast pole, the
hangman's noose falls near Captain Eggend's head. Pirate
Ginness is knelling near the treasure chest.
                                                            
                       GINNESS
Sir. This is your loot. Your
pirate booty.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
No it's not. That's not my booty.
                                                            
Von takes the hangman's noose and puts it around Captain
Eggend's neck. More of Von's crew gather to see what is
going on. Von tighten and adjusts the noose.
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN EGGEND
My good man. You can't hang me.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
And why is that Sir. Why can't I
hang you?
                                                            
                       CAPTAIN EGGEND
Because if you do every man in her
majesties navy will be after you.
They will hunt you down like a
dog.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
I'll be worried about that.
                                                            
Von takes the rope bare handed, hand over hand quickly
pulling up the rope, hanging Captain Eggend. Von takes the
end of the rope and ties it off on the side rail. Eggend's
legs are twitching then fall still, he's dead. Von moves
back over near Eggend who's boots are level with Von's
shoulders. Von looks down at Pirate Ginness.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
That treasure you asked about.
That treasure is my crew's. Divide
it equally amongst my men.
                                                            

81.

The crew cheers Von. Von takes hold of one of Eggend's boots
pulls it off his foot, drops it and pulls off the other
boot. He picks up the boot he dropped. He holds the boots
up.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
This is my booty!
                                                            
The crew cheer him as he walks away.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - NIGHT
                                                            
A few torches light the deck as Cassieo is set up ready to
play her cello, pirate Tar approaches her.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Miss. Cassieo I was just
wondering, would you enjoy hearing
a scary pirate story?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Oh yes, please do. I love spooky
stories.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Alright Miss, but you promise not
to be mad at me if it scares you?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I hope it dose.
                                                            
The crew gathers to listen to Tar's story.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES (spooky)
I ran into a old ship mate of
mine, pirate Thomas Brown. He
looked just awful, just terrible,
one leg was gone, he had a peg
leg. One eye was gone he had a
patch over it. His right hand was
gone, he had a hook for a hand.
                                                            
Pirate Tar takes his right index finger and bends it into a
hook, he tries to look spooky showing it to Cassieo.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
So I say to him. Mate what
happened to your leg? He says to
me, a British cannonball shot it
clean off, then my pirate crew
made me this here pegleg.
                                                            

82.

Tar opens his eyes wide, giving Cassieo a spooky look.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
I say to him, I see. But what
happened to your hand? He says to
me, a British Captain cut it clean
off in a sword fight. Then my crew
made me this here hook.
                                                            
Tar hooks his right index finger and shows it to everyone,
trying to be spooky.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
I say to him. I see, and did a
British pistol ball shoot out your
eye? He says to me no. No I was
looking up at sea gull and it
crapped in my eye. I say to him.
It crapped in your eye? I said sea
gull crap can't knock your eye
out. He says, First day with my
new hook!
                                                            
Tar starts to laugh as he rubs his eye with his hooked
finger. All the pirates laugh.
Cassieo laughing rubbing her eye with her finger hooked.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
That was a good story Tar.
                                                            
The "Pegasus" sails away into the dark with Cassieo playing
the cello, Bach's Suite # 1 in G major.
                                                            
 
EXT. BAT ISLAND COVE - EVENING
                                                            
The "Pegasus" is anchored in the cove. Calico has a lit
torch and is in a rowboat with Cassieo, Tar and Peter are
rowing.
Three other row boats are following them as they approach a
cave tunnel. They row into it.
                                                            
 
EXT. CAVE TUNNEL - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Inside they look up at the huge stalactites hanging from the
cave ceiling, its spooky in there, and the sound of dripping
water. In the distance they see the front of a dark ages
Gothic castle built right into the stone. There is an area
in front of it to tie off boats. Their are stairs that lead
up to a large Gothic style door with unlit torches on ether
side of the door.
                                                            

83.

The boats are tied off, everyone looking around at the cave,
castle and door.
                                                            
With his torch PIRATE SAMUEL lights one of the torches next
to the door. PIRATE JAMES lights the other one. PIRATE
HENDERSON walks up to that torch and tries to dislodge it
from the wall, he tugs on it but it won't budge. Then he
pulls down on it, it's a lever.

Everyone hears the sound of chains CLANKING and metal gears
turning coming from inside the wall. Calico looks up and
sees a huge stone block on the far wall of the cave swinging
like a pendulum attached to the cave ceiling by a chain
heading quickly towards Pirate Henderson.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Look out!
                                                            
The stone block slams into Pirate Henderson and the castle
wall with a loud CRASH. The force shakes the cave and the
castle. Pirate Henderson is gone, smashed behind the stone.
Everyone freezes for a moment as large stalactites fall from
the cave ceiling into the water below, one crashes through a
row boat. Then everything is still.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Booby traps be careful.
                                                            
Calico approaches the door, there is a large Gothic door
knocker attached to it, he knocks on the door, it makes a
loud HOLLOW ECHOING sound.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Ahoy! Anyone home?
                                                            
Silence. Calico takes hold of the door handle. The door
won't open.

Calico and crew are standing up near the wall as Pirate Tar
lights a power trail. The power SIZZLES as it makes its way
to a power keg in front of the door. BOOM! A loud explosion
as the castle door flies apart. As the smoke clears,
everyone peers into the Gothic furnished large great room.
                                                            
 
INT. GOTHIC CASTLE - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Calico, Cassieo, Peter, and Tar are slowly walking near the
wall. The floor is marble squares. The room is decorated in
old style Gothic furnishings. Paintings line the walls, and
beautiful vases are higher up on stone shelves build into
the wall, its creepy.


84.

PIRATE FINTCH has a lit torch and is walking down the center
of the room, when he takes a step. The sharp sound of a
marble floor square SNAPS, then the sound of chains CLANKING
and metal gears spinning.
                                                            
Everyone freezes looking around, then WHOOSH a six foot by
six-foot section of the floor that Fintch is standing on
drops. In a second Fintch and that section of floor are
gone. Fintch screams as he's falling into the abyss.
Everyone frozen for a moment starring at the black hole in
the center of the room.

Calico slowly approaches the hole, everyone follows.
They looks down the hole, nothing but darkness, no Fintch,
no torch, nothing. Calico takes Pirate Tar's torch and drops
it into the hole. They watch as it just disappears into the
darkness.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Von didn't warn me of this.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES (worried)
What is this place?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
My grandfather's castel.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Should have told grandpa we were
coming.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Were robbing the place.
                                                            
Ahead of them on the far wall there are two stairwells. On
the right going down and on the left side a stairwell going
up. They approach the stairwell going down. They look, a
steep set of stairs going down into the dark.

PIRATE DAVID throws his torch down the stairwell it hits the
bottom floor and lights the area. There is a stone shelf
with a beautiful treasure chest sitting on it.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES (excited)
A treasure chest!
                                                            
                       PHILLIP BLACKSON
We'll get this one.
                                                            
Pirates Phillip, David and PIRATE NANKER carefully make
their way down the steps to the bottom. Pirate David opens
the treasure chest lid. It's filled with gold and silver
coins, jewels and jewelry. Pirates Phillip and Nanker each

85.

grab a handle on the sides of the treasure chest and lift it
up about a inch, then a loud SNAP, quickly followed by the
sound of chains CLANKING and metal gears spinning.

They set the chest back down, its to late the sound of a
heavy iron gate CREAKING halfway down the stairwell. It
comes out of the wall moving to the other side wall crossing
the stairwell. It has trapping the pirates below. The
pirates have fear in their eyes. The pirates hurry up to the
gate tugging on it.
                                                            
                       PHILLIP BLACKSON (fearful)
Get us out of here!
                                                            
Calico and his men go down to help. A stone on the sidewall
below the gate starts leaking water. Everyone looks at it.
Then more water gushing out of it, before the pirates can
react, the stone is pushed out of the wall by gallons and
gallons of water shooting out.

The pirates frankly tug on the Iron Gate. Water is rising
faster and faster. Calico and his men helpless watching as
now only the pirates faces and hands are up to the gate and
the water is quickly covering them, till they can't see them
anymore.
                                                            
The water up to Calico's knees as he Peter and Tar give up
and start walking back up the stairs as the water stops
filling the stairwell. Cassieo gives Calico a hug when he
reaches the main room.

Calico is watching across the room as PIRATE JAKE slowly
approaches a silver candelabrum on a stone shelf. He lifts
the candelabra, then SNAP, followed by the sound of CLANKING
chains behind the wall. Calico looks up at a large marble
vase on a shelf above Pirate Jake. It starts to tilt and
pours a light oil over Jake. Jake is drenched in oil. He
shrugs it off.
                                                            
                       JAKE
It smells sweet.
                                                            
The sound of metal gears behind the wall near Jake. Attached
to the wall there are three foot tall stone wheels that
quickly start to spin. It only takes seconds when sparks
start to fly off the wheels lighting the oil. Pirate Jake
catches on fire. He's ablaze, screaming, running wildly
around the room. He runs into the hole in the center of the
room. His screams echo in the dark hole as he falls into the
abyss. Then silence.

INT. GOTHIC CASTLE - LATER
                                                            
Calico, Tar, Peter and Cassieo now standing at the bottom of
the stairwell that goes up. Calico takes a torch and throws
it up the stairwell, it lights the area and they can see it
turns to the right at the top.

Calico starts to walk up the stairs when everyone hears the
sound of many FLAPPING wings. Flying down the stairwell
hundreds of bats, everyone ducks. The bats SQUEAKING as they
fly over and pass them into the great room then out the open
front door. Everyone except Cassieo is spooked.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES (addressing Peter)
Her grandpa keeps bats as pets.
                                                            
They pull themselves together, and walk up the steps. At the
right turn there is a locked door. Calico pulls on the
handle to no avail.

A power keg is setting in front of the locked door. A power
trial goes down the stairs where Calico and crew are against
the sidewall. Calico has a lit torch and looks at Tar who is
next to him.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I'll show you how this is done.
                                                            
Calico lights the power trail, the power SIZZLES as it makes
its way up the steps. Then at the top step it looks like it
goes out. Everyone is looking at each other. Calico peeks
around the corner, looks up the stairwell then steps out
into it.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Must have when out.
                                                            
Calico takes one-step them BOOM! A loud explosion as the
power keg blows up, the power flash coming down the
stairwell. The impact knocks Calico off his feet sending him
backwards into the thick smoke, we lose site of him. Lots of
smoke.
                                                            
 
INT. BERLIN GERMANY MUSIC HALL - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
The smoke is clearing as music is heard, the orchestra is
playing Ludwing Van Beethoven's symphony no. 3 in E flat.
A well-dressed audience packs the house listening to the
music. The orchestra looks great. Cassieo is playing her
cello. Purell, Von, and Rushka are playing violins. Governor
Bonny is playing the clarinet. Anne, Zak are playing flutes.

87.

Pirates Peter and Tar, now dressed like fine gentlemen are
playing horns.
                                                            
The back of the conductor is waving his conductor's baton to
the music. The audience starts to applaud, then start
chanting Calico, Calico, Calico. As the conductor turns we
see its none other that Calico Criss. He smiles.
                                                            
 
INT. GOTHIC CASTLE - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
"We know its not 1805 that was a dream Calico is out cold."

Calico's face covered in power soot. His clothes still
smoking.
Muffled voices calling Calico, Calico, Calico wake up.

Calico's eyes open. He is in a daze.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Calico, dear are you alright?
                                                            
Calico looks up at Cassieo, Tar, and Peter knelling over
him.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Calico are you hurt?
                                                            
Calico looking dazed and confused.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I just had the strangest dream.
                                                            
He looks at Cassieo. Pointing at her.
                                                            
                       CALICO
And you were in it.
                                                            
Cassieo smiles at him. Calico looks at Peter and Tar.
Pointing at them.
                                                            
                       CALICO
And you were in it. And so were
you.
                                                            
Tar starts to laugh at him.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Captain that power blast almost
took you head off.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
It scrambled your brains Sir.
                                                            

88.

                       TAR JONES
Next time, let a man take care of
the power kegs. Sir.
                                                            
They help Calico to his feet. His clothes still smoking.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Calico, dear, you'll think your
dreaming when we show you this
treasure.
                                                            
 
INT. GOTHIC CASTLE LIBRARY - LATER
                                                            
Calico, Tar, Peter and Cassieo walk into the Gothic library
their eyes open wide as they see the rooms filled with all
kinds of treasures. There are treasure chests about the
room, gold and silver coins stacked on the desk, it looks
like pirate's heaven in there.


Other crew pirates are carrying out the loot. PIRATE BOXMAN
is holding a small treasure box that has a lock on it. In
his other hand he has a small pry bar and is trying to break
open the lock.

PIRATE TRIVER slowing walking near the sidewall where there
is a beautiful Gothic chair up against the wall. Calico is
watching Triver as he sits in the chair. As soon as Triver
sits down, it triggers a six foot by six foot section of the
wall and floor Triver is on to spin him around behind a trap
wall. Calico sees him spin around behind the false wall.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Tar! Peter! Did you see Triver
disappear behind that wall?
                                                            
Calico, Tar, and Peter are examining the wall seams that
Triver disappeared behind. Tar has a silver candle stick and
pounds on the false wall.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Triver! Can you hear us?
                                                            
Tar puts his ear up to the wall but hears nothing.
                                                            
                       CALICO
That wall is a foot thick, solid
stone.
                                                            
Calico runs his hand down the seam in the wall.
                                                            

89.

                       CALICO
We can't leave him in their.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Captain I can put four power kegs
next to the wall and we'll blow it
up.
                                                            
Calico shakes his head no.
                                                            
                       CALICO
And how many pieces will Triver be
in?
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
And I suppose you have a better
idea?
                                                            
                       CALICO
As a matter of fact I do.
                                                            
 
INT. GOTHIC CASTLE LIBRARY - LATER
                                                            
Peter is up on a latter, up at the wall finishing chiseling
a groove on an angle across the upper right corner of the
wall panel Triver's stuck behind.

Calico is on the other far side of the room aiming a cannon
at the area Peter is working on. Heavy ropes anchor the
cannon in place. Pirate Boxman hands Calico a half sack
power pouch. Calico loads the sack into the cannon's barrel.
He takes a ramrod and sets the power sack.
                                                            
                       CALICO (addressing pirate Tar)
Tar are you paying close attention
to this? Half sack of power,
eightpound ball.
                                                            
Tar rolls his eyes. Pirate Boxman hands Calico the cannon
ball. Calico lowers it into the cannon.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
If this works I'll never question
you again....sir.
                                                            
Calico grins at him.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I've fired a few cannon in my day.
                                                            
Calico takes one last look at his aim sight of the cannon at
the corner of the wall.
                                                            

90.

                       CALICO
Time for everyone to clear the
room.
                                                            
Everyone has left the room except for Calico. He has a lit
cannon fuse on a stick, looks at the wall then lights the
cannon fuse. BOOM! The cannon fires.
                                                            
 
INT. GOTHIC CASTLE LIBRARY - LATER
                                                            
Pirates are pulling out Pirate Triver from behind the wall
through the hold Calico made with his cannon shot. Triver
brushes himself off as he approaches pirate Tar.
                                                            
                       TRIVER
Tar, I knew you would blast me out
of their, thanks.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Don't thank me, thank our cannon
expert, Captain Calico.
                                                            
Calico grins and tips his hat to Triver.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Triver you are forever in debt to
me. It took ten men three hours to
get that cannon up here.
                                                            
Cassieo is on the far end of the room looking at large
object covered with a black cloth. She pulls down the cloth
to reveal a beautiful wooded Egyptian casket standing
upright against the wall covered in hieroglyphics. Next to
the casket on each side are large four foot tall Egyptian
vases covered in hieroglyphics. She eyes up the casket then
calls to the men.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Come look at this!
                                                            
Calico, Tar, Peter, PIRATE WILLIAM, and about ten other
pirates are looking over the Egyptian casket.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
That's a casket.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
You mean to say their's a dead
body in that?
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
Aye.
                                                            

91.

                       TAR JONES
Well, were not grave robbers, I
say we leave it be.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
No, I say what is in it is mine. I
get no share of the loot like the
rest of you do.
                                                            
                       CALICO
That's not true Cassieo you get a
full share just like all of us.
You earned it.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Theirs probably a Egyptian mummy
in it and they bury their dead
with amulets and Egyptian jewels.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH (nervous)
I say we leave the dead alone.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
What's a mummy?
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
In the old days they would wrap
you in cloth bandages and bury you
alive in one of these.
                                                            
Pirate Tar's eyes open wide.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Tar don't let him scare you. In
Egypt thousands of years ago this
was how they preserved dead
bodies. It's called mummification.
It was their way of becoming
immortal.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
Just like she said, immortal.
Whoever is in that box is going to
jump out when we open it.
                                                            
Pirate Tar's eyes open wide.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Peter he has been dead for
thousands of years. And besides
that they removes their organs.
                                                            

92.

                       TAR JONES
Miss. Cassieo what of them strange
marking on it.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Those are called hieroglyphics.
Egyptian's writings.
                                                            
Peter points out to Tar the eye of Horus on the casket.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH (spooky)
Tar see that eye looking right at
you. That's the evil eye. It sees
you....the evil eye.
                                                            
Pirate Tar looks frighted looking at the eye of Horus.
                                                            
                       WILLIAM FANCY
I say we don't open it, we have
enough loot, lets just go.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Captain Calico now what do you
think of your brave strong crew of
pirates?
                                                            
Calico looks around at his crew.
                                                            
                       CALICO
I agree with the men we really
don't need a mummy on board ship.
I say we leave well enough alone.
                                                            
Cassieo reaches for Peter's chisel.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Give me that.
                                                            
She takes the chisel.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
I'll open it myself.
                                                            
 
INT. GOTHIC CASTLE LIBRARY - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
With the chisel Cassieo knocks off the last latch on the
Egyptian casket. She stands near it ready to open it.
Calico and the pirates are all watching her. Peter takes out
his pistol, aims it at the casket and cock's it.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH
Just in case. It jumps out.
                                                            

93.

All the other pirates including Calico take out their
pistols. They cock them and aim them at the casket.
Cassieo slowly opens the casket reveling a large wrapped
dusty old mummy standing upright, arms at his side.
The mummy has around his neck a large gold chain with a
beautiful sold gold ankh hanging from it. Cassieo looks back
at the men and smiles.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER (joyfully)
This is mine.
                                                            
She reaches into the casket and gently removes the gold
chain and ankh off the mummy. She brushes the dust off it.
She turns to the men then puts it around her neck holding
the sold gold ankh. The men are awe struck at the gold ankh.
The pirates lower their pistols. Cassieo holds it up to her
face with the mummy behind her. She smiles.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Solid gold men, solid gold.
                                                            
The mummy's eyes open. Then his arms start to rise. The
pirates rise their pistol's aiming at it. Cassieo is
startled. She then turns to see the mummy take a step out of
the casket, arms out reaching for her. She gives a short
scream then ducks moving towards the men, she's scarred of
it. Pirates start shooting it. The mummy takes ten pistol
balls hits. They just rip through him.

The impacts sends dust flying off him. With holes in him, he
groans but keeps moving. Cassieo stumbles and falls to the
floor. She is trying to crawl away from it. Calico takes
careful aim and fires his pistol hitting the mummy in the
head, the shot goes right through the mummy's head with a
puff of dust. Having little affect on it.

It groans, then pauses to look at Calico, then turns
continuing after Cassieo. Pirate Tar runs his sword into the
mummies belly area, the mummy hits Tar with his arm,
knocking Tar down. The sword still stuck in the mummies gut.

Pirate Peter screams, dagger in hand, rushes the mummy.
Peter stabs his dagger into the mummies chest. The mummy
grabs Peter, lifts him off his feet and tosses him like a
rag doll. Cassieo on the floor looks up to see the mummy
standing over her groaning ready to pounce on her, his arms
out stretched. She holds up the gold ankh to it.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER (screams)
You can have this back!
                                                            

94.

Calico raises his sword and with a quick slash the sword
blade cuts off the mummies arm. The mummy groans in pain
then looks at him.
                                                            
                       CALICO
That had to hurt.
                                                            
The mummy starts towards Calico, groaning with his other arm
reaching for him. Calico swings his sword cutting off the
mummies head. The mummies head falls in Cassieo's lap. The
headless mummies body falls to the flood with a thud and a
puff of dust.

Cassieo sees the head in her lap, screams, grabs it, and
then throws the mummy head up into the air. Peter catches
the head, puzzled, looks at it. The mummy's eyes are
blinking at him.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH (scared)
I don't want this.
                                                            
Peter tosses the head to Tar who catches it, he looks at it
with a shocked expression, then flips it to Calico. He
catches the head, looks at it. The mummies eyes blink at
him. Calico like a NBA star, takes the head like a
basketball and shoots in into the Egyptian vase next to the
casket. A perfect "no net" basket. Calico extends his arm to
help Cassieo up.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER (lovingly)
Calico you saved my life.
                                                            
                       CALICO
All in a days work love. Now lets
get out of here.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
The deck is full of treasures and happy pirates checking out
their loot. Pirate Boxman is stacking gold bars. Pirate Milo
is pouring molten silver into a pistol ball mold, from a
brick kiln they have setup on deck to melt silverware.
Pirate Ringer is sitting near a large wooden crate of
pistols. He is loading a pistol. He then looks at the silver
ball shot he is about to drop in to the barrel.
                                                            
                       RINGER
Never thought I would see the day
when I would be loading pure
silver shot.
                                                            

95.

Ringer sets the ball shot with a ram rod he then sets the
pistol in another wooden crate with loaded pistols and
muskets. Calico and Cassieo stand near the wheel as Cassieo
rings a bell to get everyone's attention.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Listen up men!
                                                            
The crew gathers to listen.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Were heading to Port Faircloth, on
the way we'll split the loot in
equal shares.
                                                            
The crewmen cheer!
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Men my advice is when we get their
take half your loot and hide it on
the island.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Good advice we'll each have enough
gold to last us all five
lifetimes.
                                                            
The crew cheers!
                                                            
                       CALICO
Let's make way!
                                                            
The crewmen disperse to make ready the ship. Crewmen start
up the riggings. The anchor is coming up as the "Pegasus"
makes way. The "Rumrunner" in tow.
                                                            
 
EXT. EMPRESS PIRATE SHIP - NIGHT
                                                            
The "Empress" is cutting through the Caribbean Sea. On deck
PIRATE DASH lowers his spyglass. He approaches the captain's
door and knocks on it. The door opens and Von steps out.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
What is it Dash?
                                                            
                       DASH FULTON
Sir off the bow. Port side a ship
approaching.
                                                            
Dash hands Von his spyglass and points to the direction of
the ship. Through the spyglass Von sees the ship approaching
heading East.
                                                            
 

96.

EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
On deck Calico and Tar are looking Through their spyglasses
at the "Empress" heading West.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Do you know that ship?
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Aye Sir. That's the "Empress" she
be pirate. Captained by Captain
Crow.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Pirate you say?
                                                            
                       TAR JONES
Yes Sir. Pirates.
                                                            
                       CALICO
Hoist our colors. Open the cannon
flaps and Tar cover our nameplate.
                                                            
 
EXT. EMPRESS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Von and his crewmen are watching the "Pegasus" get closer.
Von looks through his spyglass and sees the Jolly Roger flag
going up, then the cannon flaps opening as cannon start
popping out of them.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER (angry)
Raise our skull and crossbones!
Ready the men and cannons!
                                                            
Pirates start to hurry to their battle stations.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
I don't want a fight tonight, not
tonight.
                                                            
                       DASH FULTON
Sir we have them out gunned two to
one.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Not tonight, they could get in a
lucky shot or two. We have to go
visit my grandfather.
                                                            
Dash looking Through his spyglass sees Calico looking back
at them.
                                                            

97.

                       DASH FULTON
Sir. I know that Captain. That's
Captain Calico Criss.
                                                            
Von looks at Calico through his spyglass then lowers it.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Your lucky night Captain Calico
Criss your lucky night.
                                                            
The ships pass each other, the crews on each ship watching
each other. Von looks through his spyglass to read the name
plate. He sees it's covered with a black cloth flapping in
the breeze.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
They covered her name. I don't
like the looks of that.
                                                            
                       DASH FULTON
At no time pirate Calico Captained
a major ship.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Do you think they would have
treasure on her?
                                                            
                       DASH FULTON
The way she sits in the water. I
would bet my live on it.
                                                            
Von yells to crewmen on deck.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
Pull up the cage!
                                                            
Pirates open grating on the center deck. As others are
pulling up ropes that bring up a large iron cage. It is
filled with thirty, one-foot tall, three-foot wingspan,
black, and ugly little evil bats from hell. Von approaches
the cage as the little demon bats are SQUEAKING, flapping
their wings, showing their fanged teeth and devil red eyes.
Von makes squeaking sounds as if to be talking to the bats
this sends them into frenzy.

Von points in the direction of the "Pegasus" and opens the
cage door. The little demon bats take off flying into the
night sky. Von laughs.
                                                            
                       VON KAISER
This will slow them down.

EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Calico and crew are breathing a sigh of relief. When they
hear the SQUEAKING of Von's hell bat's approaching.
They look up and see the bats flying above them and around
the ship. A few of the bats kamikaze into the high sails and
with their sharp claw talons they start ripping the sails.
                                                            
                       TAR JONES (very concerned)
What are those things?
                                                            
                       CALICO (forceful)
I don't know, shoot them!
                                                            
Calico takes out his pistol. He takes aim at one in the
sails and shoots. The bat is hit and falling, SQUEAKING,
flapping its wings on the way down, it falls on the deck
near him. He looks at its ugly little face.
                                                            
                       CALICO (concerned)
Not good.
                                                            
More bats start to dive bomb in. They attack many crewmen.
The crewmen are desperately fighting them off. Shooting at
them, hitting them. The pirates are frightened as the bats
claw and bite them. More bats dive-bomb down. Cassieo steps
out of the captain's cabin, she looks around and sees the
bats attacking the crew. Just then a bat dive bombs her and
grabs the top of her hair.

Cassieo reaches up and grabs the bat. The bat's angry
showing his fangs and SQUEAKING at her. She takes hold of
his head and snaps its neck it lets out one last loud
SQUEAK. She takes it by the neck and slams it onto the deck.
Doctor Treesap is watching the bats with great excitement
and then he runs below deck. Cassieo tries to get everyone's
attention.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Calico! Tar! Just kill them! Use
your hands snap their necks!
                                                            
Peter is near Calico when a bat attacks him. It bites
Peter's finger and is latched onto it.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH (screams in pain)
Captain!
                                                            
Peter holds his arm out with the bat attached to his finger
showing Calico. Calico takes out his sword and with one
quick stroke cuts the bat in half. Pirate Tar grabs the bats
head and opens its jaws, freeing Peter's finger. More bats
are dive bombing as the crew fights them off.

INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Below deck Treesap is digging through gear looking for
something.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP (talking to himself)
A new species of bat. I have to
catch one alive, I'll be famous.
                                                            
Then he spots it, a fishing net on the end of a pole.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP
This will do.
                                                            
 
EXT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
On deck most of the little devil bats are dead. Pirate Tar
picks one up and throws it over board.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Don't throw them over board! Stack
them over here.
                                                            
She has a pile of dead bats near her. There are still three
bats flying and dive-bombing around the ship. Calico takes
careful aim at one, he fires a perfect hit. The bat SQUEAKS
as it tumbles from the sky onto the deck. Peter walks up to
it, picks it up and shows it to Cassieo.
                                                            
                       PETER SMITH (confused)
You want this?
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Yes, put it here on the pile. I'm
going to make us bat soup tonight.
                                                            
Peter and Calico look at each other. Calico turns his head
mouthing to himself, "bat soup"? A bat lands on Peter's back
digging in his claws. Tar takes his leather pirate choker
puts it around the bat's neck, pulls it snapping the bat's
neck it falls dead.

Doctor Treesap is up on deck chasing after a bat with his
fishing net pole, scrambling from one side of the deck to
the other. Pirate Catskin hands Calico a loaded pistol.
Treesap looking up in the riggings sees a bat flying around.


Calico, Catskin, Peter and Tar are all close together, their
pistols aimed up at the bat flying around. Treesap looking
up walking across the deck near the fore sail. The bat dive
bombs down, Criss and men take aim, their eyes following it

down. They are ready to shoot when the fore sail blocks
their view of the bat, all four pistols fire.
                                                            
Their watching as the smoke clears, the sail swings back.
They see Doctor Treesap, who has been shot four times in the
chest. Treesap looks at his chest. He drops to his knees
then falls face first onto the deck.
                                                            
 
INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Inside the captains quarters Doctor Treesap is laded out on
the table, being tended to by Calico, Cassieo, Tar, and
Peter. Calico looks down at the dieing Doctor, he's weak and
his face covered in sweat.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP (nervous)
I can do this.
                                                            
Calico reaches into Doctor Treesap's doctors bag and pulls
out a large knife.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP (shaking voice)
Not that one, the small one.
                                                            
Calico takes out the smaller knife.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP (nervous)
Cut my shirt open.
                                                            
Calico looking down at him, cuts the shirt open, when he
sees the wounds his face tightens.
                                                            
                       CALICO
You sure you want to do this?
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP
I've heard about a famous sea
fairing physician, who did this.
He operated on himself and lived.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Doctor, I'll do it.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP
With all do respect Miss. Cassieo
I must ask you to leave.
                                                            
Cassieo starts to leave the room.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP (shaking voice)
Who ever heard of a female
physician?
                                                            

101.

Calico just shrugs his shoulders.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP
Captain I need you to hold the
mirror steady for me, like I
showed you.
                                                            
Calico takes the mirror and places it on Treesap's belly
line. Treesap's hand is shaking holding the knife, as he
lifts his head up to look into the mirror.
                                                            
                       DOCTOR TREESAP (nervous)
Down a little.
                                                            
Calcio lowers the mirror, Treesap sees his four bullet
wounds, his head drops like a rock THUMP as it hits the
table. He's dead.
                                                            
 
INT. PEGASUS PIRATE SHIP - LATER
                                                            
In the captain's quarters everyone is about ready to eat.
Sitting at the table Pirate Tar has a large bowl of BLACK
BAT soup in front of him. Part of a wilted cooked bat wing
is hanging out of the bowl. Cassieo has a bowl of bat soup
in front of herself addressing Calico and the crew.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Now, don't eat the wings.
                                                            
She holds up a wilted cooked bat wing.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
These are for flavor.
                                                            
She holds up a bat claw.
                                                            
                       CASSIEO KAISER
Don't eat the claws, bones or the
bat fangs, set them aside.
                                                            
Calico is holding a blackened bat leg. It looks like a fried
blackened turkey leg with a bat claw on the end still
attached. He looks at it and then takes a large pirate bite
out of it. He chews away at it.
                                                            
                       CALICO (mouth full)
Tastes like chicken.
                                                            
Pirate Tar takes his wooden spoon, then takes a full spoon
fill of black bat broth, and lets it pour back into the
bowl. He refills his spoon, making a loud SIPPING sound as
he sips the soup broth down.

                       TAR JONES
Miss. Cassieo this is good soup.
