Parrot on my Shoulder, Monkey on my Back

For the audience
What the Jungle saw

A special view of earlier events, something that occurred out of view of the characters. [please let me know if this makes sense; I could do these in a different style. Thanks.]

*Scene opens on a beach – sea, sand, and a huge expanse of jungle. 

*The viewpoint moves closer, focusing on the beach and the mess of a wrecked yacht that can now be seen as the camera pans in. 

*SWITCH TO: view from out of the jungle, high in the tree. Several people enter view, headed toward the wreck. One of the people explores closer to the jungle. 

*SWITCH TO: lower view from out of the jungle, closer to the ground. Sound of teeth quietly grinding and slobbering. 

*Camera pulls back to reveal its point of view as from a slathering, saurian, yellow-backed creature fixated on the woman walking toward it from the beach. 

*Quick shot of the beast’s claws digging in as it prepares to spring. The camera quickly pulls back to show the whole beast as a coconut enters the frame, bouncing off the beast’s head. Startled, it snarls and runs off into the jungle. 

*SWITCH TO: high point of view from out of the jungle. The woman is running toward where the creature ran off. Camera pulls back to reveal a monkey, dressed in a faded red vest, as it throws a coconut at the woman. A boy appears at the edge of the jungle, chasing her. 

*The coconut misses, and the woman turns toward the coconut’s point of origin. The monkey screams and chatters at her to stay out of the jungle. When she looks deeper into the jungle, it leaps down and sneaks toward her. When she turns at the approach of the boy, the monkey leaps onto her shoulder and hugs her head, desperately overjoyed to see humans.

*FADES TO BLACK: showing the monkey exploring pockets and reaching down for treats. 


Kidnapped! To a new World
A Fighter's Point of View

Safara’s Story

I took passage on the Dawn Belle out of Breast.  Then things went bad yet again.  In spite of a valiant defense of the ship by crew and passengers, it was taken by pirates.  I myself killed or injured four of the crew, swearing that if they tried to enslave me I would kill the rest.  

In the end, I was knocked unconscious and thrown into a cell in the hold with the other survivors.  My weapons were taken, but nothing else was touched.  I wandered in and out of consciousness, drinking brackish water twice and experiencing the tempest that the pirates encountered.  

I woke again in total darkness, and the frantic rocking had stilled.  One of the other captives from a British ship removed some of the cell’s bars, allowing us to escape.  We discovered the ship was abandoned and sinking.  

We worked like slaves to make emergency repairs and keep the ship going until we beached it on a strange tropical island.  That was when we learned that once again, it was the end of the life we knew and the start of a life in Neuf en fers, the Nine Hells, surrounded by dragons, sharks, and crabe demons.

May the good spirits preserve us!  The nice English blacksmith has become a demon de poulpe!

The Price
The Blacksmith's Transformation

Smith Watts

Finally, I have made it to an exotic port that the French Man had always talked to me about.  It was a rough ride to get to this present moment, but it is so worth it.  So far I have made the greatest of friends, A one armed Major named Salazaar, A Captain named Juan, a Famous Doctor and her daughter Daffney, A Urchin boy who finds the best places to keep safe, and Safara the Mighty dinosaur hunter and then there is me Smith Watts the Black Smith.   

This place is so exotic it has crabmen that can talk and warn us about the Red Men that are coming who will kill us for just being alive.  This is way better than any adventure I have ever imagined or heard of.  In fact this adventure is so exciting I even buried my first Treasure Horde.

Well there are boring tasks as well on this Island we are stranded on. Since the Crabman insists the Red Men will kill us and a big huge Shark bit the Ass end of our boat off we began to fix another boat just down the shoreline so we can set off to avoid the Red Death.

Wow! I must say that is some of the best repair work I have seen done.  We did it as a bunch of strangers that barely know each other.Maybe when the Red Death is upon you there is more urgency and focus forced upon you.  

Crabman: “Dam the Waters, those Red Men have their beasts coming for us!”  

I remember my comrades getting our ship to sail with great speed to out run the Red Mens main fleet.  The waves started to swell so badly that I could see the big huge Shark Beast swim thru the wave to jump the swells into the next wave to catch up to us. I made sure everyone was tied off to their safety lines. Then I looked around and saw my comrades and just could not let that beast tear a piece of our ass of again.  

I noticed the Red Mens fleet were firing their dark magic at us and causing dmg to our ship so the Shark Beast could get us.  I remembered the French Man telling me a tale of sreaming mermaids and he used a mirror to deflect its wrath. With out even thinking I grabbed a man sized mirror that was from our plunder and jumped right into the dark magics blast to direct it back at the Giant Shark Beast.

I actually saw the magic bounce back into the Sharks mouth and then I saw Big white razor like teeth the size of swords and felt a wave of wrenching pain.  My lungs filled with water and then it felt like I was boiling with in the inside.  I just waited for death so the pain could leave my body.  As the boiling in my  lungs started to simmer down I was ready to just feel nothing and then the pain of being tourtured by a stretching machine started to coarse through my whole body.  

I must be getting chewed up by the Shark I thought to myself.  How much longer can this go on …  Then I started to feel some pressure upon my chest.  I dared to open my eyes to see what horror was going on.  I can not beleive I still can even open them up.  I opened my eyes and there I saw a monkey sitting on my chest holding on to what looks like the tentacles of an octopus.  

I looked over to see the famous Doctor over in the corner of the room to ask her the strangest question.  Good Doc Not to question your expertise of how to heal me.  I am grateful that I can even talk or see! I do have to ask you this! Why is there a monkey holding a octopus down on my chest?
