Sexed out, Captain Hook returns to Neverland in this retelling of the classic.

Captain Hook

We had sailed out of Port Royal three days before, headed east on a brigantine with a hold full of stolen rum. The island of Tortuga lay two days off as we made our way under a diaphanous sky.

I was drowsing at the helm, dreaming of a large-breasted lass, when a crosswind whistled through the rigging and startled me awake. From a read of my compass, I saw we’d drifted north of the shipping lanes. Yellow rays slanted through the clouds, and a pod of dolphins dove alongside us.

We were swashbucklers, cutthroats, and cannoneers as well. Strangely, none of our forty-strong pirates remember his childhood. Apart from young Jack, who’d stowed away six months earlier, we had only the sea and the harlots we humped in port to look back on.

I tossed Jack my spyglass, then sent him up the rat line to scout for British warships. He scanned the ocean left to right and back.

“All’s clear of Man-of-War, captain, but there’s a vessel adrift on the starboard side.”

“A ship for the taking?” I squinted into the sun.

“She’s a dory drifting on the edge of a fog bank. There's a woman aboard."

I signaled Jack down through the shrouds, then called for Cradles to take the helm.

He came fast to the wheel and stood motionless with torn sleeves fluttering at his elbows, his face ablaze with rum blossoms. He was the best of loyal mates, a horny old buggar but sick with scurvy.

"Damn you, Cradles, bring her about!"

“Aye, captain, boom about. But wary say I. What's the lady's business on open seas unless she’s a mermaid? Shapeshifters are out and about, and I'd sooner sail roaring forties into the teeth of fifties than bring them aboard."

Perhaps his sickness had sullied his thinking. I ordered Jack to fetch him a measure of rum from my cabin.

“I'm obliged, sir,” said Cradles, wiping his mouth. “Aye, it suits me.”

He lay hard on the wheel.

The Patron’s bow churned up seafoam as she came around.

I stood on the forecastle, using my glass to mark the woman. She was a suspicious lovely creature with flaming hair, dark eyes, and constellations of freckles on her face and arms. She stood proudly amid the dory. A breeze whipped her locks and stiffened her nipples. Seabirds circled.

Pickles, the parrot, swooped from the mizzen mast and lit on my shoulder.

We pulled alongside, and she called in a lilting voice.

"Ahoy, Captain, these are strange latitudes, and I fear I'm in desperate straits. How many cocks aboard?"

“We’re forty strong. Odd that you know me for a captain?”

“You’re young, but you’ve got a captain’s bearing. Drop your britches and show me your joint.”

“Heed my warning; she’s a mermaid,” whispered Cradles.

“I’ve had no complaints,” I laughed. “Pull up your skirt and show me your biscuit.”

“With pleasure, captain.”

The lady tossed up her skirts and thrust her hips.

“Bring me aboard, and I’ll give you a sniff,” said she.

“She…she-she’s right lovely in the nether,” said marble-mouth Tom—the tallest of our number and the strongest in battle.

I ordered Jacob’s ladder over the side.

“Aye, captain, d-droppin’ away.”

She grabbed an oar and paddled for it. Once within reach, she leaped on and started up. Not too soon as a shark breached and snapped at her petticoats.

Pete-Plank tossed a grappling hook and secured the dory. As black as midnight, we gave him credit for wrapping an Ivory Coast slaver in more chains than the ponce could swim with.

She hurdled over the rail, landing shoeless on the deck. The crew mustered on the waist deck, craning their necks for a closer look, their grins wilting from the unlovely deadness in her eyes.

“Take care with this, captain,” Cradles said under his breath. “She’s a necromancer.”

Patched up, Tom, mad from losing an eye to shrapnel, stepped to the lady, sweeping a hand through the air as if to brush away an apparition. She grabbed a marline spike and struck his head.

"Will you have more?" she hissed, “By your stink, I have it you’ve been swimming in sewers.”

He stumbled, and she pulled the knife from his waistband and chased after him, slashing the air.

"I'll cut your balls off!"

He held up his hands and fell back amongst the crew, blood trickling down his forehead.

The lady tossed her hair. “If you fear Davey Jones, you’ll be coming no closer."

By then, I had a hand on the hilt of my cutlass, but the lady tossed the knife, and I relaxed. She greeted me with a cruel smile.

"Peculiar skies, eh captain?" She stepped up to the rail, then stared to the offing.

"Aye, Miss, peculiar enough. What are your circumstances, if you don’t mind my asking?”

She turned quickly.

"Do you dream of your past, captain? Perhaps I’m party to a misadventure.” She glanced at the crew, then studied my eyes.

"You equivocate,” said I. “A misadventure, you say?”

"Some called it a murder,” returned she.

"You don’t say. But a murder of whom?"

"It wasn’t a whom; it was a thing—a rancid slut named Tink. I was sucking off Pan, and on she came, flitting fornicatiously about. I stepped on her and ground her into the dirt just as Pan erupted in my mouth. Seeing the gore, he passed out. Upon awakening, he called for his blithering slut. Alas. Oh, fie, and alas.”

"Pan?" I asked.

"How quickly you forget your past, El Capetian."

I took a step back.

“I’ve seen you before; remind me where it was?”

“In the depths of a forgotten lagoon,” replied the nymph.

Pickles flew from my shoulder and landed on a spar.

"Fallen fairies tell no tales!" he squawked.

“Nor truths do mermaids utter,” said I.

“You are clever, captain,” said she, pulling a flintlock from the folds of her skirt and aiming at my bird.

"Blow me, Pickles!”

I reached to stay her hand, but an unseeable force held me in place. A shot rang out. Pickles burst apart and fell into the ocean. She plucked a feather from the air and blew it in my face.

"It’s no use crying over spilled milk, blown-up birds, or fornicatious fairies," taunted she as I reached for the pistol and received a backhand that sent me crashing into the main mast.

She batted her eyes and looked askance. "Careful, El Capetian, I’ll waste no time sending you to the bottom and fucking your crew to death."

“I warned of this!” Cradles shouted.

"How very loathsome," she said, stepping forward and kicking Cradles in the crotch. Cradles turned ghastly pale and fell over the rail.

As the gauze lifted, I saw her plain enough. "Giselle!” I cried, “Queen of Oceanids.”

She bared her perfect pearls and curtsied, “I am she, and I’ll soon see you in hell, El Capetian.”

With that, she dove over the larboard side, disappearing beneath the waves.

I was thunderstruck, as was the crew who, to a man, had their cocks out and were jacking madly.

At that exact moment, young Jack called out from the stern. “Sails in the fog, captain!”

There was little time to think. I threw Cradles a lifeline as a salvo of cannon balls crossed over our decks and vanished in the deep.

“It’s Queen Anne’s Revenge!” Mr. Smee shouted. (Smee was my boatswain, the mildest of our lot, and a teetotaler to the mix.) “Their entire crew has botched reassignments and is out for blood!” he shouted. 

I ordered full sails, and my men fell to the task. The transexuals blasted away but were wanting in maneuvers. Nor could they match our speed, and we distanced them in short order. My crew let go with a cheer. Jack swelled with pride at Blackbeard's bamboozlement. I saw nothing better than to give him the helm.

“Aye, captain,” he said expansively.

“Carry on then, Jack.”

But I was bemused by Pickles' disappearance. I touched his perch but found only emptiness, a lingering memory, as I went below to study my charts. ***


We sailed under solid winds, and I came on deck as night approached. The wind was down to a listless breeze.

Smee took up his Squeezebox.

Oh, if only me mother hadn't

Jumped off the quay

And sank to the bottom

While they pulled me away

I'd still be a lubber on land and

Not sea. And not have the hangman

Still following me…

We drifted along under an unnaturally bright moon. Presently an island with ghostly white shorelines and a darkened jungle appeared in the distance.

"It’s an odd moon for Caribbean waters," said Mr. Smee, coming alongside me in the bow.

“Yes, and the island's uncharted. What is the hour, Mr. Smee?"

"Three a.m. Captain.”

"Fetch my sextant, Jack."

Jack disappeared down the companionway and returned with my instrument.

I turned the filters, calibrated the barrels, and adjusted the mirrors, but for all my efforts, I couldn't draw the moon to the sea.

“Drop a sounding line, Tom.”

Tom took the starboard platform. "On the chains, Captain."

"Plummet away,"

"Aye, Captain, b-by the mark, s-she's seven fathoms, but by the deep, she's eight. An uneven b-bottom, sir."

"Prepare to drop anchor! Bring her broadside and have her steady. Cradles...unlash the anchor. Drive the wedge, Pete-Plank. All hands clear. Have on her by God. Let her dredge.” I shouted.

Pete-Plank dealt the wedge a blow. The anchor plunged into the ocean, dragging the chain from the windlass and through a scupper.

I took up my glass and restudied the shoreline, considering the presence of an ambush.

She's three hundred yards off. I see no movement beyond breezes in the treetops. I’d wait for dawn, then test her tree lines with a taste of our cannons.***

Dawn rose, and Mr. Smee gave my orders.

“On the captain’s command!” he shouted.

The salvos sent shock waves through the air, and the Patron rolled with recoil. A thousand birds rose from the jungle, and I watched them settle.

"I'll look closer at this island, Mr. Smee; see to the ship discipline and muster me a guard of four seamen. See to it, their powder is dry."

I called Cradles to join us. Moments later, we lowered away in a pair of dories.

We pushed off and locked our oars. A fog swirled about as we rowed to the break. We leaped from the boats as they bottomed, then dragged them ashore.

Sand stretched north and south to the vanishing points. The jungle lay before us. I looked seaward but saw only the glimmering ocean and its line on the horizon. I called Cradles as we hauled out the craft.

"The ship," I shouted, raising my voice over the break. I pointed toward the sea.

"She's gone—sailed around the island, Captain."

"After having dropped anchor. What of the fog bank?"

"Gone as well, Captain."

I ordered the guard to stay with our boats, then walked to the jungle's edge with Cradles in tow. The foliage seemed impenetrable. A stand of palm-like trees swayed. A fruit fell to the ground, and I picked it up, tearing its skin, inhaling a glistening spume that awakened lost memories of the island. The jungle flora rioted, shrinking away or clamping carnivorously at the touch of a hand or foot. Giselle appeared from behind a tree, stroking her pussy, walking backward into the flora, and beckoning us to follow. I glanced at Cradles.

"Oh, God!" he cried, stumbling after her. I followed, but he’d vanished. I pressed on, encountering a pool where I fell to my knees and splashed water on my face. The drops hovered like tiny fires, then shot into the jungle, pulling iridescent trails in their wakes. I regained my feet and pushed on, covering my ears to whispers as the maze fell into position behind me. I reached for my compass and held it steady. The needle spun in every direction. The sky was lost beyond the canopy. I trudged on as the whispers gained in volume. I heard splashing and laughter. I lay on my stomach and crawled toward the source. A lagoon lay before me, surrounded by flattened boulders on which mermaids sunned themselves while tying flowers in their hair and slapping variegated tails on the rocks.

I heard a rustling above and saw Pan smiling at me through the leaves. He leaped to the ground and drew his sword.

"En Garde, Hook!" ***

And then my wife shook me from the dream.

“What the fuck, Babe? You were moaning in your sleep again.

"What?" I asked, sitting up and rubbing my eyes.

"Up and at 'em,' lazy bones. The boys are dressed and ready for Little League practice...and who on earth is Mr. Smee?”

Witty, ribald and dreamily flirtatious. A felicitous, saucy swashbuckler of a tale.

What a trip, Sammy D! I just love it when someone can write 'pirate' as well as you. This is fabulous reading. I don't know the jargon or a thing about boating, but this is still magnificently entertaining. What would a psychologist say about a guy who dreamed himself to be Captain Hook?

You're a very good writer. It's nice to have you here, Sammy.
