Run Rachel Run---Chapter 2

Chapter 2

Rachel looked around at her home town Rotterdam---and she smiled as it was one of the biggest seaports in the Netherlands and maybe the World. She hated to leave but with promising herself she would return to visit---especially since her dear mother was buried in the church cemetery. She already said her byes to her mother when she left her a bouquet of lavender roses on her grave. The roses came from her mother favorite rose bush and bloomed most of the year---with roses that felt like velvet--- with their fragrance floating on the sea breeze. This is a memory she will always take with her---and some cutting from the rose bush.


Rachel waited until all the mates and the Captain were aboard the ship and asleep or in a drunken stew. The stealfully she boarded the ship between the lights from the old buildings on the dock and the shadows of the night.


She chose to stow-away in the Captain’s dinghy which was in a secluded concave by his quarters. She manage to get all her belonging in and herself and covered the dinghy back with the tarp.


Soon Rachel was fast asleep in her hide-away and did not notice that someone was watching her play out her little stow away plan with a smile on his handsome face.


Rachel woke up with the ship rocking and in a strange bed. And just when she was trying to understand where she was a loud banging on the big wooden door caused her to scream out.


Pushing past the man outside with a breakfast tray was the captain tall dark and handsome was just the tip of his aura. He rushed to Rachel’s side and took her hand and looked deeply into her light blue eyes that shined like a beacon to his heart.

He said softly.” My name is Zachary Bonanski---I am known as Captain Z---as I am sure you have heard of me.” His dark green eyes questioned and survey her beauty.


Rachel’s long blonde hair tumbled down her back past her waist as she stood. Both Captain Z and his man servant stood frozen until she let out a sob from pure fear. She had never been in the presents of such furious looking man servant and such a handsome man before and then she fainted.


All the ship mates were very aware something was going on with Captain Z and they hoped they could help in some way---as the he always had his men’s back and they had his.


When Rachel opened her eyes it was dark out and a storm was brewing---she could tell because the ship was rocking harder now. But for some reason not known to her---she did not get sea sick like most people do. She awoke hungry and thirsty so she began to look around for something to eat and drink.


Just then a knock on the door and in walked Captain Z with a tray of food and drink. Rachel smiled and thanked him for being so kind to her---and no sooner had the words left her mouth the ship lunched and she landed in his arms. When she looked up he was looking down with the most amazing look of surprise on his face.


Rachel pushed back a little but his arms stayed around her body and then with his hand to the small of her back he led her to a chair. After seating Rachel he put her plate in front of her and a cup of the blackest coffee she had ever seen.


The he said, “If you need anything else---Godfrey my best mate is standing guard outside your door---just let him know and I will check on you later.”
