Cursed by the Gods
Jack is fourteen years old, and he is living the dream. He is pretty intimidated by all the officers, but as long as he stays away from them he can spend some of his time sailing and the rest of his time carving scrimshaw.
The mutiny marks an end to the worst of the hostility and violence on the ship, and Jack welcomes the easing of tension. He seems intrigued with his new duties, and glances wistfully at the aft deck ballista from time to time.
