The city of Havana, a perfect place for trader and beggers alike and even the city Raska choose as he retried in his young life. He already thaught that he had seen it all, that the danger wasn't as exciting as a family and a stable life or rather...that it was more wished, oh he was wrong.
Sure he found himself a women or rather many women but still something was missing, he had a stable incoming from the knowledge of all kinds of drugs and the producing of them but still.... Something was missing.
Everytime was walking along the harbour, seeing the ship or talking with sailors and pirates alike as they wanted to buy his goods...he lost himself into dreams of the sea, into memories of freedom, fights and treasures.
He regret it? Weird he never thaught that he would miss it that much, the clam waves, the wild storms, the salty air and the ultimate freedom.
It was then s Raska heated the rumours, a Captain searched a crew and what was strange about it, he searched it at the harbour itself or rather there was the meeting place, normally the local tavern would fullfill the needs and you could also shanghai someone....making him dead drunk and then carrying him onto the ship.
Raska decided to show up, it was then as it turned dusk and Raska made his way to the assigned place, he was shocked, he didn't thaught that so many pirates, sailors or whatever would show up... It was strange and as the captain rose his voice it was even stranger. Raska let out a loud laugh as the captain made his offer and with a big step and pushing another violently aside he grabed into the chest, taking out three coins showing them to the strange soon to he called captain...since were no captain without a ship.
"I am taking one for my freedom, one for my greed and the last one because I am now following your orders Gabriel"
He said as he presented the three coins to him before quickly letting them slip into his pouch.
It was a quick decision, maybe too quick for some person but still Raska was the first to spoke freely to that captain and the first who took his share.
It was then not suprising what would be his reason, the best captains are bold captains, captains you find strange to follow but you still would. Raska has seen many captains even despise his young age and he knew it his real adventure, his real freedom was now lying in front of him, as this man called Gabtiel.
"Come on you maggots don't let me wait" Raska taunted the still hestiating crowd
