His taste lasts longer than it should, by rights. Elizabeth tried first to dull the sensation with drink, but it was too similar. At night, Elizabeth almost fancied she could hear him calling for her, teasingly, just outside of her cabin.

Will was avoiding her, as was the rest of the crew. She knew that Will had seen, and the rest of the superstitious pirates most likely saw her as bad luck. The last to view the Captain while alive, or somesuch. She didn't care. She welcomed the peace. In the silence, she could still hear him.

Barbossa led them on a direct course, straight through the Triangle into World's End. It was disappointing almost, how little the waters changed as they cut a path through the cerulean waves. Yet still, she could hear him. Calling to her, testing her. One night it was too much, and Elizabeth ran on deck, searching.

He wasn't there, as she had known he wouldn't be.

Just a little ways longer, and maybe finally the taste would stop lingering.

Very nicely done. I think you captured Elizabeth's thoughts well. (I like the idea of World's End being through the Triangle, too.)

gail_b turned me onto the idea, and it just makes total sense.

I'm tempted to write another from Jack's perspective, but I don't think I can do it justice.

I love the way you've written this. It's short but intense. Elizabeth's 'voice' is perfect. Thanks!
