Shortly after her capture, Adrian discovers Courtney's true identity hidden beneath the dirty guise of a boy. Wanting to protect her from his sadistic Captain, as well as the hang man's noose, Ballantine decides to keep Courtney's identity a secret by having her pose as his newly appointed cabin boy. Soon after, the tables are turned when Duncan Farrow's partner rescues the captured pirates from the American vessel and Ballantine becomes Courtney's prisoner.
