Tortuga never changes.

Oh, it's a different blowsy whore offering to relieve him of his troubles and his last few coins, and it's a different pack of drunks shouting uproariously at each other, and a different poor sod sleeping it off in the pigpen, but nothing's really changed since the last few times Bootstrap Bill Turner was here.

Except, of course, himself.

Bill manages to put off the painted trollop, sidestep the developing brawl, and get to a corner table with his tankard mostly unspilled. He sits down, takes a drink, and hunches slightly over.

Another drink, maybe two, and then maybe he'll see if anyone in port is taking on crew.

He jerks a thumb over his shoulder at the door.

"She's not far, mate."

Jack grins at him, then turns and saunters across the room to the door. He moves as though he's on the water, swaying back and forth, and somehow manages to neatly step 'round anyone who might be in his path.

The street outside is foul with mud and filled with stench, and Jack doesn't seem to notice it at all as he picks his way down to the port and the pier there, at the end of which rests a tall black ship with black sails.

"Here we are."

There's pride in his voice, and fondness in the look he directs at the vessel.

"The Black Pearl.

Jack's still looking at the Pearl, but at Bill's question he swings back around to face him.

"Now, William-- I'm Captain Jack Sparrow."

A beat.

"'Course it's her. It's me Pearl, me treasure from the sea. I'd never leave her all on her lone."

Gold flashes from a tooth as Jack grins at him, and he offers his hand.

"Put her there, William. We have an accord."

Jack throws back his head and laughs, then beckons grandly to the other man.

"Come aboard, mate!"

And as the two pirates turn and start their way up towards the deck, a shadow falls across them. The tall dark man stands in their way, hands balled into fists at his hips, black eyes regarding them and a knowing little sardonic smirk curling the corner of his mouth.

For a moment he bars their way, then the smile turns into a welcoming grin as he steps aside and flourishes the broad-brimmed hat off his head in a parody of a courtly bow.

"Captain Sparrow, welcome back to the Pearl."

((OOC: Sorry, I just had to do it, if only for the forebodingness of the moment. ))
