“Pirate, are you ok?” Janet asked with concern, rushing to the hero’s side. His shoulder had a decent gash from the parrot’s sharp teeth, but it didn’t appear to be bleeding.
“I’m doing just fine, never better.” The Pirate said, sounding more serious than before. A twisted smile was now on his face as well.
“Are you sure I can’t help you?” Janet asked, still worried. “Maybe we should get your wound looked at by a doctor?”
“I SAID I’M FINE!” The Pirate snarled at Janet. The smile then returned to his face. “I changed my mind though. I want the grocery bag after all. And I want all the cash that was in it, plus any more you can stuff in.”
“WHAT?” Janet shrieked, shocked at the change in this once heroic character. “I thought you weren’t an evil pirate! You even said so yourself!”
“Last time I checked, evil people lie.” The Pirate mocked. “Pack the bag up, then you better come with me too. The only thing better than money is a beautiful prisoner.”
“Ok, I will get more money, just don’t hurt me please.” Janet pleaded.
She distanced herself from The Pirate by using a trip to the safe as a ploy. When she felt the time was right, Janet made a dark helmet appear in her hand. Janet put the helmet on and within a moment her body was covered in armor. Before The Pirate could react to this surprising turn of events, Janet ran towards him and introduced him to this new side of her with a jump kick to the chest. The force of the attack sent The Pirate flying out the door, his flight stopped by a crash into a brick candle store building across the street. Janet walked towards The Pirate, now holding a sword in her hand.
“I have to confess, I actually know quite a bit about you, Pirate.” Janet said with a confidence that she previously wasn’t showing. “I know you aren’t actually an evil pirate. You saved me before, and now it’s my turn.”
