Requested by my friend
this is my first x Reader! :3 I hope you all like it :3
You were walking through your favorite market. It was busy like always and everywere there were people screaming and shouting to get buyers attention. You loved the mood inside this market and you politely smiled to the people you past.
You stopped walking in front of a small jewerly shop to look at yourself through the mirror against the shop's wall.
in the mirror you saw a girl with (h/l) (h/c) hair covered in a bright red bandana. The girl was wearing a filthy white shirt with a leather jacketand pants.
The girls looked back with (e/c), confedent looking eyes.
'Just like a boy' you thought.
But you didn't mind, no, you looked like this on purpose.
A few months ago girl from your village started to disappear and everyone got scared so a new rule was made:
'Girls aren't allowed to walk outside without a male guiding her.'
You hated that rule, so once in a wile you dressed up like this and went to the market.
"May I help you?" you heart made a jump as the young woman who was running the shop started talking to you.
"N-No," you said. "No thank you I am just looking around."
"Buying a ring for your future fiancé like everyone else, I asume?" asked the woman, smiling kindly ad you.
"like everyone else?" you asked shocked. "What do you mean?"
The lady's eyes widened. "You don't know?" She asked shocked.
you shook your head, feeling really embarrassed
"A dangerous pirate is comming this way and he wil take one of the women to marry him." The lady said.
"Are you serious?" you asked shocked.
the lady nodded with a sad face. "All the man are marrying their gilfriends, hoping they won't get captured when they are married."
"His timing couldn't be better!" you said sarcastic. "At this rate all the womem will disappear!"
"It's sad but true." The lady said. "But it's great for my buisness."
A male voice was comming from the back of the shop, calling for the lady.
"It's my husband." The lady sighed. "If you like a girl, you should ask het to marry you right away." She winked at you before she disappeared into her shop.
you nodded politely and left the shop back to the market. 'Is it true what the lady said?' you thought. 'A pirate?'
you suddenly got really worried about your best friend, Lily. Lily was really pretty and really populair with the guys, but she never wanted a boyfriend.
"He's comming!" A guy screamed in panic. "Captain Kirkland is comming!"
The Villagers around you started to panic and a few women started to cry. Your stomach suddenly felt really empty and your legs couldn't move. The villagers were running around like chickens and if you weren't this scared you would probably had laughed.
"My dad." You mumbled to yourself. "If he notices I'm gone he will freak out!"
Your legs finally started to work again and you started running away from the screaming villagers.
When you entered your room you quickly started to undress yourself. You hid your clothes in a box and pushed it underneed your bed. You opened your closet and pulled and put on a long pink dress. You quickly brushed your (h/l) (h/c) hair and picked up a book from the ground and started reading.
You heard the front door which meant your dad just came home. Your dad opened your bedroom door and you saw he was crying.
"What's wrong dad?" you aked as calm as possible.
Without saying anything he pulled you of your bed and hugged you.
You started crying as well.
"So he really is here, isn't he?" you cried. You just couldn't lie to him anymore. "The pirate is really here, right?"
"You look to pretty." Your dad suddenly said.
"You look like you want him to take you!" Your dad continued. "Put on an other dress before they come and get you."
You changed into an old yellow dress which was way to small for you. Your dad grapped a knife and pointed it at you.
"Dad what are you--"
Your dad started ripping the dress with the knife.
"Thanks dad." You smiled at him in the hope he would smile back, but he didn't.
"Your hair." he whispered.
You put your hands on your head and started to make your hair one big, (h/c) mess.
Your dad started laughing and hugged you again.
"You look terrible." he whispered.
"Thanks." You replied.
You startled as a man knocked at your frontdoor, screaming.
"____ ____!" He yelled. "Come out right know!"
"It's okay." Your father said. "Just go with the 'nice' man."
You laughed. "I'll be right back!" You said while you walked to the frontdoor, leaving your dad in you bedroom.
The man who had knocked on the door and brought you here was accually really nice. You racognized him as the guy who always sold fish on the market. While you two were walking he said all kinds of calming things and you started to feel better.
The public square was full with people. But in the middle of the group people all the woman were standing. Most of them were crying and the others comforted the crying women. All the guys were standing in a large circle around them, as if they were to scared to come close.
"Go and stand there." The fish-guy said to you.
you walked to the other women as as yo stood there you noticed that alot of women had already disappeared and only a handfull of them were standng over here.
Alot of the women had the same idea as your dad, most of them were wearing filthy dresses and they didn't even bother to do their hair.
You looked around to find Lily. It wasn't really hard to find her. She was wearing a beautiful, purple dress which really stood out in the crowed. She was really rich and this purple dress was probably the ugliest she had. Lily was crying as well but no one was comforting her. You ran up to her and hugged her.
"It's going to be okay."You whispered. "I will protect you. I promise."
"I'm scared." Lily cried. "Please don't go!"
"Me?!" Your eyes widened. "You should worry about yourself, honey."
It suddenly became silent as a pirate walked up the podium the villagers had used for executions.
The pirate had messy blonde hair and emerald green eyes. She was wearing a long red cloak with golden ages and on his head he was wearing a pirate hat.
'He looks kind of handsome' You thought.
The pirate bowed before he started speaking.
"Good day, dear villagers!" She said. "My name is The Great Captain Arthur Kirkland and I'm here to choose my future wife."
he paused and looked into the crowed before he continued.
"I won't leave you all in tension." he said. "Let's start right away."
He jumped op the podium (Alot of people in the crowed screamed in shock) and landed skillfull on his feet. Arthur made his way to you and the other women. He walked passed every girl and took a long carefull look at them (one of the girls fainted)
"Don't show him your scared." you whispered to Lily as Arthur finally arrived before her.
Lily straightened her back and tried to look confident but she was trembling like crazy and you could clearly see that she had cried. A small smirk appeared on Arthur's face before he moved on to you. Arthur stared strait into your eyes and you stared back without showing any fear. After what seemed to be more than hour, Arthur moved on to another female. You took a deep breath and you had the feeling you could cry. Lily started crying again and she grabbed your hand.
It remained silent untill Arthur clapped his hands.
"I made my decision!" He said.
"I--" Arthur started to walk past all the woman again.
"CHOOSE--" He was really close to you now.
"YOU!" He stoped walking in front of Lily.
"NO!" Lily started screaming. "NOOO!"
"Bring her to my ship." Ordered Arthur.
Out of no where pirates came and grabbed Lily and dragged her away.
"____!" Lily started to scream your name. "_____ Help me!"
"Lily!" You screamed. "LILY!"
You ran after Lily and tried to grab her hand but some other pirates stopped you.
"Don't worry." Said a voice behind you. "I will protect her."
It was Arthur.
You felt your body being filled with anger.
Arhur walked at the direction of the harbour and you fell down on you knees.
You started crying, you cried louder than you ever did before.
"I will protect you Lily!" You screamed. "I Promise!" But they were already gone
It was past midnight and you were in your bedroom. Your father was already fast asleep but you couldn't sleep at all. You grabbed the box underneed your bed and started dressing yourself in the clothes you were wearing this morning at the market.
you admired yourself in the mirror.
"Just like a boy." you whispered.
As silent as you could you slipped out of your room and house.
Outside you could hear the music comming from the pirateship. You took a deep breath and started running in the diection of the harbour.
Pirates were singing and dancing on the pirateship. you quietly sneeked onboared and started searching for Captain Arthur. The other pirates were too busy to notice you and you could easally sneek into the captain's room.
Arthur was reading paper work as you walked into the room.
"What do you want." He asked. He put away his papers and looked up to you.
"Who the bloody hell are you?" He asked.
You took a deep breath and bowed down on your knees.
"PLEASE LET ME JOIN YOUR PIRATE CREW!"
