Trick by the Rebel pirates and fool traders
The next day head’s health again deteriorated. He started coughing incessantly. He was literally coughing his lungs out and could not even talk. I also noticed one more thing. The two groups of pirates were apparently quarrelling with each other. Though I did not know their language I understood that the pirates were divided. Some pirates wanted to take benefit of their head’s condition and conspiring to run away with the entire loot. But some loyal followers of the head caught them. Now the two groups were fighting. It further affected the head pirate’s condition and he was immediately taken to the upper room with many followers surrounding him while even more followers guarded the staircase.
“Why don’t we join the rebels and run away from here” Yasmeen asked me. “But how could you believe these pirates who are not even loyal even to their head they served so long?” I asked in disbelief. “I think this is the best opportunity” It was the husky voice of Raja Khan ” Right now the two groups are divided in almost equal proportion but If we will join the rebels the rebels would have an upper hand and we can run away. Besides they desperately need some more people to join them so that they could be able to run away from here. So we could help them to run away and in lieu of that ask them to free us up.” “See, I can never believe disloyal people. If they have been disloyal to their own chief, how can you trust them even if they agree to free you up if you help them” “But then we will be in a better condition as the strength of pirates would be divided. Anyways, it is much better than facing the uninhibited formidable jungle.” Pasha Khan too opposed my statement.
I could not stop them but declared that I was not involved in their plan. Dilawar dared to gesture a rebel pirate and with the help of gestures he expressed his which to help them. The rebel looked at his face and went to another person that was presumably the head of rebel pirates. After thinking for some time he nodded and loudly issued an order. within no time all the captives joined the rebel pirates and a fierce fight commended. I could see the huge iron weapons searing the flesh persons fighting on both sides. There was blood all around. The traders who had pale faces till yesterday sported the bravery , power and fighting techniques I could not believe.
As I saw around I realized that I was the only person to be left while all others were fighting. The fight continued for 30 minutes and I saw many rebel pirates quietly taking away the huge bags containing the loot, probably to the ship while the fight was on. After they transported 5 such bags, they informed the head of rebels and each rebel pirate, along with the captive traders started leaving the scene and heading to the ship. At this point the condition of head of pirate was further deteriorated and all the pirates were immediately asked to attend to him. Taking the advantage the last 5 rebel pirates left the scene and went to the ship. Here I was, alone and surrounded by pirates.
