The torrent came crashing down on them all with such force, Kidd himself had nearly fallen over in the water – that being the end of his own tale. Thankfully, years of sturdiness on a ship had given him such useful advantage. Awaiting for the princess to come, he came to realise that her features were reddened, something he had already been accounting on, they all cried. 'Cept that bastard whose pride took up an entire room. Boy had it been a relieve to have made him meet the same fate the princess had almost encountered. Finally, the girl began wobbling over to him, her life on the line, nearly being taken in a literal way.“Kidd!” Screamed one of his mates, their faces scrunched in a frown, clearly displeased with what the man was currently doing, bringing her back on the ship. He assumed they hadn't heard her, their ears filled with the ocean salt and whatever infection more than half of them most likely had, simply were unaware of it.Turning his head back around, his eyes widened upon seeing the Princess' foot loose itself, a piercing scream ringing in his ears, just as the skies ripped with fury, the sight of a nearby shark making its way into Arthur's sight upon looking down. With every single second seeming to slow down, the man took the opportunity to drop down on the board and with an agility none would have thought a pirate his size was capable of, grabbed hold of the rope in between her bound hands; if t hadn't been for that, he would have never caught her. As of now, the wind threatened to crack the plank, the princess flailing uselessly in the air, Kidd's injured shoulder screaming in agony upon hearing an unsettling crack due to the heaviness of her drenched dress and body weight. A loud yell erupted from Arthur as his entire body worked to haul the princess back up, two sturdy hands helping him along, dragging his legs back over the ship, Kidd's only worry being the rope he held loosening, which would be the end of her. Not today. With one last effort, the buccaneer had finally managed to drag her back on the ship, his right arm feeling much looser than it should. “Axel!” Belowed the second Captain, his face in a painful grimace, the princess' weight partly on him, the rest being scrawled on the ground, in whatever shape he had managed to keep her in. “I got her, Kidd.” Came the boy's reply, his hands coming and bringing the princess to her feet, the rest of the pirates stared, dumbfounded, all extremely confused as to what was going on. “Get back to your jobs! Scrat!” Kidd yelled, his voice pitching higher as one of his mates helped him to his feet, knowing that his shoulder was to be looked at, possibly locked back into place.
