The Princess and the Pirate.
on February 23, 2015
Finally we have Jarek's story! He is the brother we did not meet at first...the Pirate. We start the story out with Mei honoring her ancestors and finding out she is going to be married and pregnant with in 8 months. She is distraught thinking it is going to be Song Lok, the prince of the neighboring kingdom. She wants to escape fate and not marry him. Jarek is on Lintan trying to rescue Rick, who was kidnapped by drug traders. When Mei sees Jarek and his crew running from Song Palace Guard's she automatically assumes they are Pirates and tries to stop them. Mei listens to the wind and has a very free spirit and it tells her to go after them. Jarek thinks she is trying to escape and takes her with him, even though to every one else it looks like she is trying to fight him, not run to him.
There is a lot of back story to Jarek and Mei meeting. It helps in letting you know what is going on. I love the banter back and forth between the two characters. They both know they love one another but duty is what is keeping them apart. I love the ending and her meeting his brother's so we can see what has happened to everyone at this point. I cannot wait to read the crews and Mei's siblings stories.
