Sixty days until we reach Key West.
It be nearly a week fore I write in this here Captain's Logbook. Not that thar aint been nothin' to tell of- quite the contrary! But this book of Captain La Fey's nears completion. Only a handfull of pages be left. I do not relish finishing and starting a new book. This one be like me old friend. A place of comfort and recognition.To start anew: pristine white, no blood, sweat, tears or ink spills to let me know what comes next. No other Captain's words side beside mine, as a guide. I would be on me own. I dare not say I be ready. So me picks and chooses me entries. I hold back, as if I can stop evolution or tide. Hidden in me blouse be a small package and a heavy skeleton key hangin' from a chain around me neck. And this here be the drawing of the medallion I was studyin' last week from the Captain's Logbook.
When last Saturday Alvida Viper entered me cabin and placed her Grimoire upon me desk: this be the twin drawing showed to me. At first me considered she stole pages from the Captain's log! We place both books open side by side. On closer inspection, me sees small differences. But the entry in the Captain's journal says LaGrange relinquished the medallion! So how come it rested among the other strange belongings in the pirates trunk of treasures? "Captain, that medallion in your possession belongs to me. I hid it when I came aboard the ship before departure," and she outstretches a small palm. Without hesitation, I retrieve the medallion from me pocket. Alvida unhooks the clasp on the side knowingly, and as it opens, white silver wings spread from its sides. This be not the medallion from the Captain's log as I so hastily assumed. "There is an ancient Coin that belongs in here, Captain. And in a southern port of call, not far from Key West, is an old blind gypsy named Kalymnos who awaits our arrival. She has your Captain's medallion - the medallion of the Black Swan Brethren. And Captain, there be one more missing medallion..."
