Frederick and Geraldine (Part 4)

That ship used to carry passengers and some cargo.
‘Twas cozy and elegant for the ladies’ travel.
The outdoor spaces and the suites were cleaned by Fargo.
Its furniture and artworks were dreams to unravel.

They had tobacco, Indian spices, and old wine,
Making sure that the passengers wouldn’t miss anything.
Searching for food and water, when the stars started to shine,
Freddy hired Maya because she knew to do everything.

Maya was an old woman having black eyes and white hair,
And she had a deep, long scar above her upper lip.
The crew got ready to leave the port, feeling despair
In waiting for the last passengers to board the ship.

”She will prepare the meals as a woman of the sea.
She will help you give birth to the child when the time will come.
Why do I sometimes feel like someone is watching me?
He always appears in my way; those moments I’m numb.

He’s a tall and a lean man dodging out of my way.
He has three daggers and a gold ring with a boom skull.”
”Sulim said something about a sea wolf, ” ”What did you say? ”
”Ask Sam to follow him, and to put him in a lull.”

”It’s dangerous to follow him, ” ”Now, where is his ship? ”
”Near wild shores, or isolated places, well hidden.
Due to my accident, I left the army swords that rip.”
”I left my home for you, ‘ cause this love was forbidden.”

(She started to cry while thinking that her father died because she left the home without his approval to marry Frederick. While crying, she fell asleep. Frederick fell asleep, too, while being worried about their future.)
