Every order was taken out with a smiling face and a good attitude .Sam loved to give orders to others ,that was only if he had permission to first. Courtney stood six foot high his body built like a Trojon of war. It was enough to scare any sane man. His face was worn , scars from past battles at sea had taken their toll. His deep eye sockets were like two caves glaring at you ,his curly amber locks shone brightly on the darkest of days. Captain Landbrook was a rich noble man from Dover. His father Sir Henry Landbrook sailed the oceans for rich treasures and now his son James would follow in his fathers footsteps. Captain Landbrook was no more than five feet nine.

"Lets move in ." said Sam hoarsely.The asian ship was getting over powerd in every way. Landbrook saw the disorganisation on the galleon and was taking advantage .Le lyon scrached its massive hull against the side of the opposing ship.Landbrooks men jumped onto the asian galleon using ropes. Asian men jumped off the sides of the ship and tried to swim to the shaw.Men were taken as hostage and were going to be thrown back on the coasts of Africa while athers perished under the shining steel sword. Soon men searched the ship for treasures high and low men searched until they came to an enclosed door shut by lock and key .Sam took out his deadly musket and blew a cave into the thick wood .The treasure literally poured out onto their feet.Rubies,diamonds,gold coins and emeralds were theirs to keep .
