As Captain Zax, Meep, Bibi, and Zoe along with others climb aboard the dog ship. Captain River's ship The Screaming Sea cat's cannon fires a warning shot across the bow of the dog ship. The explosion rocks the nearby the dog ship uncontrollably. Pistols fire between the dog pirates and our heroes on board. Grenades explode. Gris starts to worry "lets go Fearless!" A wounded dog helmsman staggers. He lets go of the ship's wheel, and the ship swings around crazily. Fearless, Mallee, Novi and Gris board the dog ship undetected due to their magical garments. They can hear screaming threats but they know no one can see them. They grab the wheel and Novi with Gris's invisible cloak drops the sails and anchor. Can't have the Dog Ship ramming the Screaming Cat. Also, so the fighting can be more productive, dizzy pirates make bad fighters especially when most of them are drunk on Rum in the first place. Then the rascals set fire to the galley. Hoping to cause some form of bewilderment in the dogs. They toss all the burnt steaks and cheeseburgers onto the shore....hoping the dogs will follow. No luck, all they caught was two catfish named Blizz and Simba the English. Fearless successfully uses her magic to scare the begeebes out of the dog pirates and move the ones in the back of the ship into the center. Captain Zax, Jez, Tate and Eddy DG#1 is in the center too, swinging smacky paws around, for they have great first hand experience of drawing blood from the tender nose of dogs. The others are carrying cutlasses (short, curved swords) and bats. For the dog pirates were putting up a good fight even hurt a cat or two but then they seen death pass before their eyes. Three figures, no more like shadows, crawled over the deck railing. A Brindled dog with black ribbons flapping in the wind from her pink and black argyle collar, was the first to emerge from the shadow. For she was Diamond the Dangerous, a terror to every small dog in the northern hemisphere. Right beside her was Lil Bear know for being raised by bears in the great mountains Michigan. With a snarl and a growl from Diamond that made some of the smaller doggies need to change their shorts, and Lil Bear morphing into a huge grizzly, they wielded power over the dog pirates. But they were the least of the dog pirate worries for the third figure was Samhain. Hissing through her teeth, ears sideways and with her whip like tail, Samhain—one of the most dreaded pirate ninjas who ever walked the earth—jumps to the deck. She stands tall, lean and all in black. Sashes stuffed with Chinese stars and daggers crisscrossing her chest, a Katana sword tied to her back and nunchucks in both hands. Pieces of burning rope falling behind her contrasted with her black fur. Making her seem even more terrifying. The dog pirates all panicked and fled to safety in the water.
Muffled laughter from the Screaming Cat echoed across the channel. Zoe even heard Milo, yell "BE AFRAID ye dastardly villains~!" She looked up and that crazy cat was sitting on the edge of a cannon just daring the dogs! Captain River knew the dog pirates would probably try to take over his ship sense it was nearest to theirs. He ordered his mencats to hide below decks with pistols and swords ready. The Dog pirates crept up on the deck, stunned by how easy it was to board the ship, they wondered if the crew had ran in fear. Suddenly, Captain River and Zax's right hand best man Co-Captain Luke rushed the deck, with their man cats a following. Firing pistols and wielding swords. The pirates turned around, completely shocked—they had been tricked. A battle began. Then the chicken dogs decided to jump ship again but between them and The Blood Thirsty Princess and The Purr Ann's Revenge was the King Triton of the Meowmaids. He raised up out of the water on a huge wave and spoke... "You shall not go any further! For I will not let you touch one single hair on the fair ladies or young kits of these two ships!" The earth and water trembled at his voice. The ships uncontrollably rocked in the waves. Zoe was even thrown over board! With one swoop of his staff and the dog pirates were at home in their beds convienced that they had dreamed of the whole battle.
" Victory at last!" yelled the cats! Captain Zax and Skylar swaim up to Triton's throne, knelled with bended knee....."we are your humble servants, Lord Triton of the Sea..... forever." Zach stood up..."if for any reason you need a spy or one of the best fighter pilots on earth feel free to summons us, your honor." Lord Triton leaned down looking at Zax in the eyes and said "BOY! (In a phantasm way, Zax's legs started to shake) I did not do what I did to save your filthy hide! As far as I knew you deserved to be badly hurt, a good near death experience would be good for you...PLAYBOY KITTY! But....now I am inclined to thank otherwise. It took a lot of guts to face me after ripping Layla's heart out. You are a truly honorable man cat' Triton stood up and looked at the crowds of cats "along with all your fellow pirates! I suggest you go and apologize to Layla right now before I change my mind again." Zax walked off wondering how in the world he was going to survive the wrath of Layla, after all she has her Dad's powers in spades.
Little Phoenix - Naoma ran up to Skylar...."Sir! Sir! Zoe is missing! Gris, Blade and Fearless are searching for her in the waters frantically. But they can not find her! Skylar looked distressed "where?!!" Over there, see Samhain and Diamond they are on shore looking for her now. Hours pass and no sign of Zoe anywhere. For the crews were disheartened...they believed Zoe was dead. Drowned. They prepared a raft made of wood for a vikings farewell. Sleeper and Callie with tears in their eyes walked up to the raft both with torches, Sleeper spoke with a shake in her voice "goodbye my dear friend, DG#2, for thou hast touched every heart with thy sunshine", Callie walked up and dropped her torch, crying so hard all she could say was "I'll miss you BFF". As they watched the raft catch on fire Sleeper hugged Callie tight. Milo and Skylar untied the raft from the embankment. The cats stood in silence as they watched the raft float out to sea. Layla swam up and held Zax's hand, she had noticed a single tear come down his ultra manly face and it broke her heart again to see him cry. For she knew there was nothing she could say to make him feel better. Diamond had to hold little Gris back for he wanted to run and stop the burning raft from floating out...he had connected the raft with his memories of Zoe. "Oh no! Who died?" It was a sweet voice with a southern draw that no one every thought they would hear again....it was Zoe! She was standing beside Triton himself. In delight and confusion everyone gasped at her appearance. Zax ran up to her and hugged her "where in tarnation have you been?!" Triton spoke up and said "I accidentally sent her home to bed along with the dog pirates. My staff has been having fleas lately, need to get our resident techy to look at it. My bad" The crowd of pirate cats started yelling "hooray!"
Gris, Snow, Novi, Moppie, Blade, Mallee and Fearless all jumped up on a big rock, with glasses of non alcoholic grog in hand. Snow stepped forward "A toast! we all speak for the kits and everyone else when we say it's dang good to see you Zoe!" Cheers could be heard for miles. "And on the subject of Egypt..... are we there yet?" MOL!!!!!!!!!!! I love you sis!" Said Gris.
The crews sailed there four plus one ship to Egypt to tour till their hearts where content. They loved being appreciated in the streets of Egypt. Everyone at home was super pleased to see Miss Zoe alive too, especially her ex's. And she and her pirate mates lived happily ever after.
To Sail Another Day!
I did SO NOT say all those "thees" and "thys", Zach!!! (Really good to see you, Zoe - I didn't believe you were dead for a minute, though - you have WAY more gumption than that!)

Yea for us kits!!!! It was really us who saved the day, huh Gris, Mallee and Novi? We just let the others think they did it!
Sleeper! You know you said those things and everybody knows it. Why hide your artistic side? You know you can be beautiful and smart at the same time.
Look at your sis....she's drop dead gorgeous and as dangerous as a king snake under your front porch step. And you won't know she's there unless she wants you to know!
Your right Fearless it was all us! Can you believe we snagged Blizz and Simba? They let their mouse pouches rule their brains. Not smart at all. Bad business in our kinds of business.
