"Aye... That would be much appreciated." Blackblade replied to the offer of the strange creature.
Turning back to his men, Blackblade instructed that they would start repairs 3 hours from now. Suddenly, he turned to the creature.
"Say, would you mind if we scour the island for materials? We kinda wasted some cannon balls and we be needin' some ingredients to procure more. In exchange, we'll give you anything. Our ship have a lot of exotic spices, treasure and things you can find from beyond the seven seas." Blackblade asked as he expected the worst.
"Don't worry, we won't do anything to the island. We'll only be needing some fiber, some minerals and some small stuff. We'll be very careful. You can count on it."
Asking a creature with powers sure is terrifying. He couldn't fight against it without losing some men. Guess the best way was to be diplomatic and be... sensitive. But hey, they're pirates. A pirate's life has no rules.
