Stone possesses a heart – SINDBAD Story Series 2 Part 7

Stone possesses a heart

I was chagrined and annoyed at my own foolishness. If I would have agreed to my companions I could have been freed. As I was thinking these things someone called me upstairs. As I went there I noticed that the head was talking to his interpreter. I was told that the head needed medicine to cure cough or cold. I had brought the medicines with me. But the all the bags were already carried away by the rebel pirates. I also told them the same thing. To my astonishment I saw a pirate bringing a huge sack.


It was the same sack that contained the clothes. My clothes were taken out and checked. Inside one of my pockets a small round box was found. It was the potion to cure the intense cold. But it needed to be heated and mixed with boiling water before administering to a person. One of the pirates took out the bag containing their daily needs and lighted fire. I was also given water that I boiled immediately. Once prepared I administered the potion to the head pirate in the prescribed way and within 30 minutes his condition improved. I administered the same to him several times and by the end of the day the head pirate was able enough to walk without difficulty. I was rewarded with the sumptuous food and drinks. By the evening of next day he started talking too. I also told them about the foods that can aggravated the situation.


I also had good knowledge about medicines and health. I offered to prepare the prescribed food for him. I was allowed and seemingly the head pirate also enjoyed the taste of the food prepared by me. I also told him not to take bath for at least 3 days in order to get permanent relief. The head obeyed all the rules and within a week he was alright. The weather too was fine. But the biggest question was how to get out from there. I was living like a king there and no one troubled me. But soon I started feeling homesick. I had already spend 23 days there in that uninhibited island.


One day I was told that within a week we will leave and pleased by my kind, helpful attitude towards him, the Head of pirates wanted to send me to my country. “But how can you say with certainty that we will leave this week? You do not even have a ship?” I asked in disbelief. “Actually the head of pirates is no small thing, he know telepathy and can communicate with his companions even at a distance of seven seas. He already told them to send him a ship and within a week it should reach here.


The ship really arrived on the 4th day and we finally left. I was stunned when I ventured to ask them that their entire loot had been taken away by the rebel pirates. So from where these same bags conjured up? Does the head of pirates also know some black magic that he brought back the items of loot. Upon this the interpreter laughed loudly and told me that the head of pirates used to changed the bags of loot with the help of his proximate, loyal followers. So upon his instructions the loot was taken out from the bags and transferred to the huge trunks. The empty bags were then filled with stones that were covered with a thin layer of valuables. So the bags that rebel pirates had carried away contained stones covered with a very thin layer of valuables and jeweler. I was amazed at the skills and intelligence of the head of pirates.
