★ Act I ★

"(Blood and rust flood my senses as I sink to the bottom of the ocean.)"
"(Pain. There’s unbearable pain coursing through my body. The taste of salt or metal—I can’t tell the difference—drowns my lungs as I’m forced deeper into oblivion.)"
"(I didn’t expect death to be painless, but Father had always warned me that the sea is a gentle mistress.)"
"(She would lure me in before I realized it, just like many sailors had gone in a flash.)"
"(Now I know that’s a lie. My body is heavy, and all I can do is pray. . .)"

There is so much going on here, I just love the possibilities. I already the little bit of backstory you've given of the characters. There's pirates, magic, princes, it sounds awesome and I'd love to play it!
