Fiona

 

When we finished with Manon, Robert, Marco etc. we went on to the next generation. For a while I played Gabriel, Manons son, but playing a guy doesn't suit me very well. Marco's son Enrique and Robert's 3. son Jean Luc played besides him (amongst others). I didn't write any notes to Gabriel.

 

Then we moved the set to the Island Kingdom. Enrique and Jean Luc went along. I started playing Phoebe, a goofy but pretty smart girl whose heart beat for science. Eventually it began beating for Enrique as well, and when I left her they were engaged to be married. I didn't write any notes to Phoebe, either.

 

Along came Fiona Blackwell (one of those ideas that just pop into the head). Fiona is a 3. generation pirate and Phoebe's halfcousin (their fathers are half brothers). We invented a new advantage for her: lucky charm. She is not herself particularly lucky or unlucky, but she brings luck to those who work or fight beside her.

 

Fiona can't read anything besides maps and various nautical expressions, and she certainly can't write. So what to do? I wanted to start writing again, but Fiona couldn't do it. So I invented James Wotham, an Aurorian writer, with a number of books about pirates on his resumé. He writes the story of the 3 generations of Blackwells - William, Charles and Fiona. The indexcard at the National Library of the Republique of Ryendor says this about the book:

 

No. 874.352

 

Blackwell Pirates, Ye truthefull storie of

by

James Wotham

Anno 1635

 

Donated to The National Library of the Republique of Ryendor by the Duke Henri Louis d'Anjou in 1956 along with a number of other prizeless books and papers (amongst which were: 8 original manuscripts, 13 pamphlets on various topics, a number of private letters addresed to the Duke Charles d'Anjou (1569-1642) and a quantity of unpublished poems all by Manon de Bergerac (1577-1636)).

 

This copy is incomplete. Quite a lot of pages are missing in fact. The only other copy known to exist is in the Royal Library of Aurora and is to my knowledge also incomplete.

 

L.G. 4/3-1957

 

 

Read the recovered pages from Ye truthefull storie of the Blackwell Pirates - prologue.
