Ahoy there shipmates As I'm sure you've all noticed my story, Red Rosenberg, hasn't been updated in some time. This has been due to some severe medal health problems on my part and the sad fact that my computer has died on me. Hopefully everything will be sorted soon and we can get the story finished and up on the board. In the meantime just remain patient and all will be well in the end.

Ahoy there shipmates. As you have no doubt noticed my story has not been updated for a long time now. Sadly this was due to a) me succumbing to some mental health issues and b) my computer was more than a little bust. Fortunately I'm a bit better than before and so is Willow, my computer, and I'm back to writing the adventures of Red Rosenberg and I have some big plans in-store for our favourite pirate crew so just keep a lookout for future updates which should be occurring before Christmas. Till then may the wind be forever in your sails and your seas be steady.

Previously on Red Rosenberg

Tara has been drugged by Katarina, a member of Willow's crew who is planning a coup against the pirate captain. This was done in the hope that Tara would die so that she would be unable to use her magick to stop her from preventing the coup. To further her plans she had arranged it so that Dawn, one of Willow's most loyal crew members, would be blamed for it. This would in turn help divide the crew however Katarina has reckoned without Salomon, a sorcerer who needs Tara for his own nefarious purposes and has sent a magical cloud to Willow's ship with a cure for Tara.
Willow's ship is now anchored off the isle of Verminas where Salomon is based and is now making his preparations.

Chapter 37
The evening was calm and balmy. The seas were still and calm and The Slayer bobbed gently on the waves. The sails had been taken down and the two small boats had been prepped for the journey to the island the following day.

Willow and Tara were snuggled together in the pirate captain's bed. Willow's leg wrapped in fierce protection of her lover while Tara's head was tucked under the redheads chin. Tara felt warm and secure in the redhead's fierce yet loving grip. However she still felt troubled. Sleep eluded her and she lay with her eyes open. The more she tried to sleep the harder it seemed to evade her. Finally the blond witch seemed to find some kind of restless sleep. However that sleep was plagued by dark dreams of strange creatures hidden in shadows, menacing growls that threatened nothing but death and a dark chamber with a large black stone altar.

However the ones that disturbed Tara the most involved a strange pale man with a shaven pate wearing dark robes who continually looked at her with deep burning eyes which appeared to look straight into her soul and the faint twitchings of a dark smile at the edge of his lips. There was also a large statue the colour of onyx which suddenly began to slowly turn around. Despite knowing she was in a dream there was something that held her there, prevented the girl from being able to open her eyes or even leave that particular dreamscape.

As Tara watched with an ever increasing horror the black statue turned towards her but she noted that the statue didn't move as a normal person might, the whole body turning, only the statues upper body, head to waist, was revolving slowly towards her. Tara couldn't be sure why but there was something about the statue that terrified her.

Finally the statue stopped and its face was revealed to the girl. It was that of a woman, very attractive in appearance with an aquiline nose and full pouting lips. The head was covered by a pschent crown however the aspect that fully grabbed Tara's attention were the eyes. They were of a burning blue-white light that seemed to almost blind the young witch.

The blinding light suddenly vanished and Tara suddenly found herself lying on her back staring upwards. She tried to look around her surroundings but she found herself frozen in position. However the man in the robes was there still but this time he was staring down at the girls prone body with a look of manic fanaticism in his eyes which Tara now saw were a dark flinty grey. In his right hand he held a scroll and began to read from it but the words were of a language unknown to her ears.

"Naruuma ambanata ahb rimang falixa shoubith." Now he placed the scroll into a pocket and the blondes eyes widened as he removed a large dagger from it which appeared to be made of some sort of stone with flecks of minerals glittering as light fell on it. "Now Ka Faraq Gatri you are mine...mine and the dark godesses and you're death will make her live again."

His final words were a shout of exultation then he began to bring the dagger sharply down towards Tara's breast and she screamed in terror.

The man withdrew a large knife from within his robes and held it above Tara's breast.

"Now Ka Faraq Gatri you are mine...mine and Negara's and you're blood will resurrect the dark goddess." His final words were a shout of exultation then he began to bring the dagger sharply down towards Tara's breast and she screamed in terror.
********************************************************************
Chapter 38

Tara woke, screaming as she had done in her dream. She turned her head quickly in all directions, startled, expecting to still find herself in the dark chamber. As she came to realise that she was still in the cabin with Willow Tara's breathing slowly calmed and the witch allowed herself to relax a little and as she did so wiped the sweat from her forehead.

"Tara? Tara lass, are ye alright?"
The blonde started at the sound of her name and looked about her, the panic from the dark dream arising again within her. As she stared around she slowly realised that her lover was calling to her. She turned to face the redhead with worry and fear writ large on her face.

"Oh Willow", Tara whispered softly her voice shaky with fear and as she started to cry she threw herself into her startled lover's arms. Despite the unexpected turn from Tara Willow quickly hugged her close, her fingers gently stroking down the blonde's silky smooth skin and gently whispered words of love and affection to her until she had calmed the young girl slowly back to sleep.

Once Willow was sure that Tara sound asleep again she kept watch over the girl throughout the rest of the night providing comfort when she Tara became disturbed in her sleep.
*********************************************************************
Tara started drowsily as she heard bootsteps on the main deck above.

"Willow?" she murmured sleepily as she reached across the bed only to find the other side empty but the other pillows were there and Tara pulled it toward herself, wrapping her arms around it and happily deeply inhaled the pirate queen's tantalising scent.
**************************************************************
The sun shining in her face through the porthole making her blink finally forced her to get out of bed. After the nighmare the previous evening Tara decided to clean herself before she put on fresh clothing. she went over to the sideboard where a bowl and ewer of water stood. The blonde poured some clean water into the bowl and dipping a cloth in to the bowl began cleaning herself, cleaning off the sweat from her neck and throat and front.

As Tara cleaned herself further she slowly came to realise that the reflection in the water wasn't her own. As she looked closer she saw that the face in the water wasn't her own but that of her Willow. She recognised the wide grinning smile, shoulder length red hair which would always blow out behind her in the sea breeze. Eyes green as emeralds twinkled out at her while her nose was patterned with a galaxy of freckles. Every single aspect of Willow which only made Tara love her all the more.

Seeing Willow brought a smile to the blonde's face as it took away the memories of the previous night's horrific vision. Suddenly something made her stop and look more closely at the image in the water.

Tara couldn't tell what it was but there was something different about Willow's face then she saw that it was changing. It was subtle at first but then the changes became more and more apparent. Full pouting lips and an aquiline nose in a dark face. She looked closer and slowly came to realise that it was the same face from her nightmare the night before.

With a start and a short cry the blonde rapidly moved backwards, so rapidly that she stumbled over her feet and fell flat on her butt. Tara saw the face somehow force itself over the top of the bowl. Ebony hands with bony knuckles and long razor sharp nails appeared to reach over the top of the bowl and began to heave a body up out of the bowl.

Tara wanted to scream for help no sound would come from her. By now the creatures body was visible from the waist up, expanding to fill the room, the head and the blue/white eyes leering down at her trembling body. Then the mouth opened, a huge black hole that threatened to swallow Tara up, and a sibilant voice hissed from deep within that dark hole.

"Your soul is mine and I will eat it."

At this Tara finally let out a long loud shriek before fainting dead away on the cabin floor.
*******************************************************************
Tara half opened heavily lidded eyes as she heard slight mutterings from close by. Slowly she became aware of something holding her hand. She swallowed only to find her throat dry. She closed her eyes expecting the worst, especially after the previous evenings nightmare and the horrific encounter from that morning. She breathed deeply and opened her eyes.

Opening them wide she was first stunned and then finally relieved to see Willow and Buffy there. Willow was holding tight to Tara's hand with worry over her face. Or at least it appeared to be Willow. Tara reached up and started to gently stroke the redhead's warm cheek bringing a smile to her face when Tara, without warning, struck Willow so hard across the face that her nails nicked the pirates flesh.

"OUCH, what the feck?" Willow yelled out in pain, standing up so quickly that she knocked over the stool she had been seated on. Willow touched her hand to where her face had just been scratched by Tara's fingernails. She glared down at her lover, her face a mix of hurt and confusion. Pain showed in her eyes at the thought of being hurt by the blonde.

Willow looked at the blood on her fingertips as if it were something new to her eyes while Buffy, seeing what had happened and understanding the two girl's need for privacy quickly and quietly left her friend's cabin closing the door softly behind her.

"Wh...why? Why Tara? The pirate captain's voice was quiet, full of hurt and pain. She had never been the one in the past to give her heart so willingly being satisfied with short, brief relationships. Always aware that her lovers could turn on her in an instant if it served their purposes she made sure they were kept at a length so she would never be hurt. Tara was the first to whom she had wholly given her heart and now...now she was unsure about the one thing that thus far Willow had been so confident about.

"Willow...I...I'm so sorry but I had to be sure."

"Sure o'what?"

"That it was really you, that you weren't...her." Tara's voice was equally quiet and she kept her head down not wanting to meet the redhead's gaze.

"What'ya mean that I wasn't her?" Willow asked becoming even more confused.

"You remember in the night, I had that nightmare, the one where I was going to be sacrificed on the island. And there was that bald headed man and the statue that moved?"

"Aye, I remember."

"Well when I went to wash myself in the mirror I thought...I thought I saw you...your face reflected in the mirror." Here Tara gulped and swallowed back tears that were beginning to choke her. When she continued it was in a much shakier voice. "I thought it was your face but then it started to change and turned into her face. She"

" 'Er face, who's that then?" Willow queried, now less angry or upset with Tara striking her and much more curious about why.

Tara hesitated a moment as she thought about the question before answering.

"I'm not sure who she was or is but I think she is some kind of goddess and she's somewhere on that island and she wants to kill me. She wants to eat me, eat my soul." By now Tara's voice had become more and more shrill so that she was practically shrieking at Willow before breaking down crying.

Willow just stood looking down at her lover before sitting by her on the bed and wrapped her arms around the other girl, holding her comfortingly while trying to understand the tale she had just heard. Finally after a long time Tara fell asleep again and after Willow laid the young witch on to the bed she quietly left the room making sure to lock the door behind her.
*******************************************************************
As she exited the cabin saw a crew member descending the stairs that led from the upper deck. A short, stocky girl with an untidy thatch of ginger hair.

"Cap'n", the girl called out as she spotted Willow. "Cap'n, Mr. 'Arris is askin fer yer up top. Summat t' do with yon island he says."

"Aye, well I have a job for you Karina," Willow told the other girl. "I wants ya ta stan' guard outside me room. Don't let no one in or out other than me understand. Miss Tara is resting in there"

"Aye Cap'n," Karina replied and promptly stood to attention in front of the cabin door.
********************************************************************
"Ahoy there Will," Xander called cheerfully to his friend as he saw her come up to the top deck.

"Ahoy there Xand," she replied "watcha got fer me?" she inquired as she joined her shipmate.

"Not much Will. I checked out the shore but I aint seen no life or owt, though there is a tower a fair way in."

As he said this Xander passed the telescope to Willow which she held to her eye as she scanned the island. Looking from left to right she checked the beach out noting how deserted it was. Despite the calm of the day, waves rippling gently against the side of the Slayer whilst the sunshone down giving the seeming image of a perfect day. Then someone called out...

"'Ey, where's the gulls?"

At this everybody on the deck suddenly perked up and started to pay attention to their surroundings. Indeed, as had been pointed out to the crew, there were no gulls nor any other form of animal life. The only sound to be heard was the lapping of the ocean against the sides of Willow's ship.

The lack of sound was making the crew nervous in the extreme. Everyone was looking at each other and around at their surroundings warily, hands gripping tight to their weapons.

"CAPTAIN ROSENBERG."

The voice was of a deep, sonorous timbre. It was the sound of the dead and of dark crypts in which unspeakable things crawled

"CAPTAIN ROSENBERG", came the voice again, no less eerie or terrifying than before.

"Aye", the red head replied. "Tha's me, who are ye and what ye be wantin'?"

"I AM SALMONEUS. I WELCOME YOU TO MY ISLAND."
