As Ripper returned to his ship, Maria stayed on the far end of the island, where she drew out in the sand how she and Sirius would escape to get to the sea witch. Though she didn't know when Sirius would regain full control of himself, she did wonder if she could just get him to their boat and have her friends pull them along as fast as their bodies would allow.

"Hm."

"Damn it...DAMN IT!!" Sirius growled as he saw the man was clearly dead.

As a doctor, it was just something that always got under his skin. Sure, he didn't like the crew that got him stuck with this curse. But that didn't mean they all deserved to just be slaughtered all because the Captain lost his patience. A sigh left him as he moved away from the body, his pants and part of his shirt were now soaking wet with water and bits of blood. That was it, that was the last stray in Sirius's mind...no more. As much as he hated this route to take, he was going to give Ripper a piece of his own medicine...and he was going to make sure he took something off the bastard.

All he had to do was wait and see, wait for them to come back like they claimed they were. Ripper was pissed, he was going to keep his word on that. His prize was here and so was Sirius....the Captain wouldn't stay away for long...Sirius knew that. And he'd be waiting.

Ripper returned a few hours later, bound and determined to find Maria. "She's gotta be here somewhere," he murmured as he trudged around the island. His prize had to be here. She wouldn't have gone far without Sirius as she seemed too attached to him at this point.

"C'mon, lass," he called. "Enough of yer games. Yer needed for our problem." He patted his knees. "C'mon now."

Sirius was ready for him, sitting and waiting. The beast in him still felt too close to the surface but it hadn't tried to come out as he waited. Hearing the man's voice though, he felt the urge to change. As if turning into a monster was the only way he stood a chance. However, he kept himself together. When Ripper had walked past his hiding place, Sirius lunged. Attempting to slam a fist into Ripper's face.

Even if his attack missed, Sirius would skid to a halt and turn to face the man. Brows narrowed as a huff of air left him.

"Have you finally lost your mind due to your curse? I know killing isn't anything new to you but seriously? You just mauled the one guy because he was telling you facts." Sirius remarks, adjusting his stance. "I'm fed up with you."

Feeling someone try to hit him, Ripper yelped in surprise and turned to see Sirius facing him. He shook his head as Sirius chastised him about killing one of his crew and how fed up he was. "Now, doc," he started, "t'aint no proper way to speak to me. Bones was a... casualty, see? I told 'im to get the mermaid. He failed. He know what was comin'."

He squared his shoulders as he narrowed his gaze at him. "Now, just let me get the girl and we'll be on our way. I want this curse gone as much as you do..."

"Oh it's proper, cause I'm talking your language." Sirius growled as he stood there, his white hair standing on end. "A failure doesn't mean death, it's not their fault that the situation was baffling and they didn't know quite how to handle it. It's called seeing when there's a challenge and trying to figure out the best way to go about it. How many crew members have you killed just cause they failed in your eyes? I bet you're down half a crew by now."

It was a guess, considering the way Ripper was prior to him telling crew members that he was going to station them on islands to see if they could spot one. Without a doctor or surgeon on the boat, casualties would rise. And pirates lived a dangerous life.

"By doing what exactly? Killing a mermaid? Using her through some painful means that could make her miserable for the rest of her life? You never said just what would happen to Maria if we used her." Sirius questioned. "Have you returned the pearl to where it came from? Have you sough amends through that way? No? Then you're clearly doing this with a one track mind when there are other avenues you haven't tried yet!!"

The doctor's wolf tail would emerge behind him, puffing up as the fur bristled and a growl left his throat as the wolf tried to push further to the surface.

Ripper's nostrils flared as Sirius told him that failure didn't mean death and questioned him about what was to happen to Maria. "T'aint none of yer damn business what's left of my crew!" he snarled, his tail suddenly emerging from behind. "My way has always worked! Ye should try it sometime. And as for the lass... best not worry 'bout her. If she lives, she'll be put to good use, I'm sure."

Fangs began to show as he eyed Sirius.

"Your  way is a real shitting way!" Sirius growled. "And no, I ain't trying your ways and it is very much my buisness when it comes to Maria."

A snarl left the doctor as Ripper made his remark about if maria lived, she'd be put to use. That only meant a few things and none were good. And that was a IF she lived. That meant that whatever the process was, it probably had the high chance of taking away her life. Wolf ears emerged from the top of his head as he stood his ground.

"You aren't touching her." Sirius stated, his tone showing he was serious on this. "If you even try, you're gonna lose something. SO you best try and find some other way to fix your mess, such as returning that damned pearl."

Ripper growled as fur began to stand on its end on his neck, his fangs slowly grew out. "The pearl ain't goin' anywhere," he snarled. "An' it seems that ye care fer the lass." A sinister grin overtook his lips before he charged and body slammed Sirius.

With his claws growing out, he dug into Sirius' chest and attempted to bite into his arm and side.

"Then you're a dumbass." Sirius replied.

He didn't respond as Ripper remarked about how he cared about the lass. Sirius did care for her, much more than he had in a long while. Still, a snarl left him as the other lunged at him. Claws hitting his chest, he could feel the pain of them sink in for a few moments before they were ripped out to try and hit him elsewhere. Sirius backstepped to avoid the fangs hitting into him. Balling up his hand into a fist, he attempted to punch the Captain in the head. Even if he missed, Sirius would attempt to slam his boding into him. The effort to get them on the ground to try and pin them.

Ripper attempted to bite into Sirius' shoulder before he felt the other back step and punch his head. He roared, grabbing Sirius and throwing him to the ground. With one hand on the other's throat, he growled before raising one hand up.

He turned his head when he felt a few rocks hit his head.

"Leave! Him! Be!" shouted Maria, who had been inching her way back to Sirius all morning before seeing him caught in a power struggled with Ripper.

Slamming onto the ground, Sirus let out a growl as he started to get up but he felt the hand around his neck. Making him have to take in what air he could in rasps. Sirus grabbed at the hand around his throat, trying to pry it open with all his might. He also raised a foot to put it against the Captain's chest, trying to keep the man a little away from him as he saw that clawed hand raise. Then..she intervened once more.

A protective instict kicked in. Causing Sirus to forgo trying to get the captain's hand off his throat and do something else. With his claws extend and sharp, Sirus attempted to push himself up and tried to rake his claws at the Captain's eye. If he could hit him around there or even take out that eye, he'd be able to get lose and they could make a run for it.

Maria continued to throw stones at Ripper before picking up a large stick and began approaching.

Ripper turned and growled at her before he felt claws dig into his eye, causing him to roar in pain and step back. He covered his eye and cowered in pain. As much as he wanted to try and rip Sirius' throat out, he now had to deal with his new injury and he suddenly backed away.

With blood on his fingers and the other backing off, Siri’s didn’t stop to take in a breathe. He got up quickly and grabbed a hold of Maria’s hand firmly; he tried to be gentle but he failed.

“We need to go!” He urged her, pulling her away from the scene. “Which way?”

His question was lower to her as he wasn’t sure where thier ride out of here was.

Feeling Sirius grab her hand, she pulled him toward the opening of the cave. "This way," she said.

Leaving Ripper in a fetal position, she led Sirius out where their boat was and she helped him on. A few dolphins playfully chewed on the rope before she pulled it out of their mouths and tied it around their tails. With that, they began to pull the boat along in the direction the selkie pointed them to.

Ripper finally brought himself up, already having trouble seeing out of his injured. "That... damn... Sirius..." he growled.
