Waiting plays a rather large role in my chosen profession. Tis all part ´n pracel of "the oportune moment" one might say.
I´ve waited for many things in my time and if there´s one thing I´ve learnt, it´s that in the end, it´s generally worth it, no matter how long it takes.
I´ve waited for my execution on more than one occasion, I´ve waited, marooned on an island, for death, madness or rescue; I´ve waited long, still days, for even the slightest breath of wind to fill the sails and take me towards fresh water and I´ve waited at the other end of the scale, when a squall is ripping at the canvas, and I´ve all but kissed my arse goodbye.
But this...this has got to be one fo the hardest things I´ve ever been forced to wait for.
It´s the whelp´s fault. He doesn´t appreciate me calling him that. Reminds him of that scoundrel, Barbossa (waited ten years to kill that one!), but right now, i couldn´t really give a toss.
I don´t remember when my birthday is. To tell the truth, it doesn´t rate very high on a pirate´s agenda. But Will, bless his sentimental soul, decided that it shall be in January for reasons that escape my understanding. All this meant nothing to me until we got onto the topic of gifts. Of course my interest rose at that, why wouldn´t it? But as soon as i started prodding for more information, he shut up, tighter than a clam.
That was when i had my seemingly brilliant idea of withholding any activities belonging in the bedroom until he told me...looks as though I´ll be waiting this one out a while because it doesn´t look like he´s going to budge on the matter.
So I´ll wait, and become a little more acquainted with my hand than I should like, but I *will* wait because i will be damned before I´m the first to yeild. Of course, if he decides that his bunk is too cold without me, I shall happily oblige but let it be known, whenever the "oportune moment" should arrive, that boy will be incapable of walking for a week. I guess it´s lucky that he won´t be leaving my cabin for that time.
Ah yes, Will Turner is worth waiting an eternity for!
