I am just craziest fan of Pirates of the Caribbean series. Among all the characters including Jack, Elizabeth, Will and many more, I liked the character of Blackbeard in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides the most. Yeah, yeah I know. It’s not considered a good thing to like a devilish character. But let me defend my favourite character in a way. What he does in a movie is not a new thing. Being selfish is his crime so let me tell you one thing very clearly that each and every one of us be selfish in our life. When Blackbeard did it, he became a villain. Ohh, I hate this double-sided world. Oops! Here I am assuming that all of you, my dear readers must have watched this movie as it was the super-duper hit.
You guys must be thinking that why am I praising Blackbeard like a poet praising his Muse. The reason behind it is a dream I had and Blogadda’s #WillYouShave activity. I got notification about this activity and so I was immersed in thoughts of topics to write about. On that very day my dear hubby started this movie on lappy and we both immersed in this movie. While watching a movie a thought passed by my mind. What if Ayush (My hubby :D) had same kind of beard? Would have I selected him or not? After watching the movie I was captured by sleep and that day I had the most wonderful and humorous dream. Here is the dream.
I was wandering on the terrace of my palace. (Aww! I was princess in this dream) I wanted to take a ride in sea and so I requested my father to allow me to go for a ship ride in the sea to enjoy the beautiful weather. My father allowed me and all arrangements were made for my ride. All necessary items one princess needs were placed in ship. With musicians, dancers, cooks and soldiers, I boarded the ship. As soon as we got far in the sea, there was commotion on the ship. Soldiers covered me and took me in the basement of ship. They informed me that Blackbeard had attacked us and we needed to fight him. Praying God and remembering my family I was shivering like a leaf. All of sudden the door of basement broke open with a thud and Blackbeard entered with a sward in his hand. I screamed loudly. He caught my hair and warned me that if I scream once more, I will be beheaded. As soon as we came on deck of the ship, I got a good look of Blackbeard. I was seeing him first time in reality. Long black beard, bulging bloodshot eyes and pirate cap. I must be horrified by his look but instead I was feeling attracted towards him. Staring at him, I was wondering that if he removes his beard than he would surely look like gentleman. Blackbeard on the other side, had already fallen for me. He was famous for his cruelty as well as his generosity towards women. His face was seeming so familiar to me. It seemed as if I had seen him ago, had spent many days and nights with him. He got hold of himself and thundered at me, “Princess, I will get lots of money from your father. You are like a golden Hen for me.” I was so bewildered with familiarity that I was not feeling scared of him. Instead of crying, what I said was,” you know, Blackbeard, If you shave off your beard and mustache than you will be the most handsome guy of this world.” He was totally baffled and stared at me like a foolish guy. These were not the words he expected from a princess like me. He uttered,”mmm… Iii… I never knew that lady.” He then ordered his men to escort me to a cabin respectfully. At night I got very good food and I was not treated like a prisoner. Next morning I woke up and was wandering on the deck and at that time I saw a man. He was so handsome just like Ayush, I ran near him and then it struck to me that he was Blackbeard. I was dumbstruck that he looked just like Ayush. He grabbed my hands and was about to kiss me at that time there came music.. “I’m feeling so exotic”
And I was sudden awake by my mobile ringtone. That time I realized that I was having a dream as I had seen a movie and a thought occurred to my mind about Ayush keeping a beard. Looking at my face Ayush hugged me warmly and asked,” what happened baby? Why you look so amused?” and this was my response,” Baby, you know? You would never look good in beard. Promise me that you will always be clean-shaven.”
