You are a mermaid who has lived at sea her whole life, but you were captured by pirates, bound to their ship’s mast, and hurled across the Atlantic.

They are vicious. The captain of the ship is an Englishwoman named Bonny. She has fiery red hair and a temper to go with it. They have treated you well enough, but you know they plan on selling you when they get back to England.

The ship has docked at Porto to fill up on wine, but you feel it, the ocean’s call, drawing you to Porto’s waterside...
