The grass around them moved with the wind: waist-high grass, soft dry grass the colour of ripe wheat. Behind them and on each side the grassland rolled away to the full range of the eye, but suddenly in front of them was the escarpment. The land cascaded down into it, steeply at first then gradually levelling out to become the Tugela flats. The Tugela river was twenty miles away across the flats, but today there was a haze in the air so they could not see that far. Beyond the river, stretched far to the north and a hundred miles east to the sea, was Zululand. The river was the border. The steep side of the escarpment was cut by vertical gulleys and in the gulleys grew dense, olive-green bush.
Below them, two miles out on the flats, was the homestead of Theunis Kraal. The house was a big one, Dutch-gabled and smoothly thatched with combed grass. Sean stopped on the rim of the escarpment and sat down in the grass. He took hold of one of his grimy bare feet and twisted it up into his lap.
There was hole in the ball of his heel from which he had pulled a thorn earlier in the day and now it was plugged with dirt. Garrick sat down next to him. I bet you yell — I bet you yell your head off! Sean ignored him.
He picked a stalk of grass and started probing it into the wound. Garrick watched with interest. Twins could scarcely have been less alike. Sean was already taking on the shape of a man: his shoulders were thickening, and there was hard muscle forming in his puppy fat. His colouring was vivid: black hair, skin brown from the sun, lips and cheeks that glowed with the fresh young blood beneath their surface, and blue eyes, the dark indigo-blue of cloud shadow on mountain lake.
Garrick was slim, with the wrists and ankles of a girl. His hair was an undecided brown that grew wispy down the back of his neck, his skin was freckled, his nose and the rims of his pale blue eyes were pink with persistent hay fever. Garrick lifted his head and looked down the slope. A little below where they were sitting was the head of one of the bushy gullies. Garrick caught his breath. Sean was too absorbed to answer.
The bushbuck was picking its way warily out of the thick cover. A big ram, black with age; the spots on his haunches were faded like old chalk marks. His ears pricked up and his spiral horns held high, big as a pony, but stepping daintily, he came out into the open. He stopped and swung his head from side to side, searching for danger, then he trotted diagonally down the hill and disappeared into another of the gullies.
For a moment after he had gone the twins were still, then they burst out together. They scrambled to their feet jabbering at each other, and Tinker was infected with their excitement. He barked around them in a circle. After the first few moments of confusion Sean took control simply by raising his voice above the opposition. I bet he stays there all day and comes out only at night. The ground was trampled by his hooves and scattered with his droppings and there was the mark of his body where he had lain.
A few loose hairs, tipped with grey, were left on the bed of leaves. Sean knelt down and picked one up. There was silence while both of them considered the amount of labour involved in digging a trap. Neither of them mentioned the idea again. When it finished sticking him they had to push all his guts back into the hole in his stomach! Sean lay in the darkness and stared across the room at the grey oblong of the window. There was a slice of moon in the sky outside. Sean could not sleep: he was thinking about the bushbuck.
He heard his parents pass the door of the bedroom; his stepmother said something and his father laughed: Waite Courtney had a laugh as deep as distant thunder. We could take the shotgun and go lay for that old inkonka. Garrick lay rigid in his bed, searching for words.
Summary of the Book Moira’s Birthday
Garrick was sweating. He could almost feel the sjambok curling round his buttocks, and hear his father counting the strokes: eight, nine, ten. Waite Courtney handed his wife up into the front seat of the buggy. He was a big man, the buggy dipped under his weight as he climbed up into the seat. He gathered up the reins, then he turned and his eyes laughed over his great hooked nose at the twins standing together on the veranda. Waite touched the whip to the shiny round rumps in front of him and the buggy started forward, out along the road to Ladyburg.
Sean and Garrick argued all the way to the foot of the escarpment. Sean was carrying the shotgun across one shoulder, hanging onto the butt with both hands. Garrick was bold again: with every yard put between him and the house his fear of reprisal faded. When you found the baby duiker, I let you feed it. Sean was silent in the face of such stubbornness, but his grip on the butt of the shotgun tightened. In order to win the argument Garrick would have to get it away from him — this Garrick knew and he started to sulk. Sean stopped among the trees at the foot of the escarpment and looked over his shoulder at his brother.
Garrick looked down at the ground and kicked at a twig. He sniffed wetly; his hayfever was always bad in the mornings. When you finish counting come up the gulley. Start shouting when you are about halfway up. The inkonka will break the same way as yesterday — all right?
Garrick pulled it from his pocket, and at the sight of it the dog backed away. Sean grabbed his collar, and Garrick slipped it on. Tinker laid his ears flat and looked at them reproachfully. That old inkonka will rip him up. He kept well out to the left of the gulley. The grass on the slope was slippery under his feet, the gun was heavy and there were sharp lumps of rock in the grass. He stubbed his toe and it started to bleed, but he kept on upwards. Sean climbed above it and stopped just below the crest of the slope where the moving grass would break up the silhouette of his head on the skyline.
He was panting. He found a rock the size of a beer barrel to use as a rest for the gun, and he crouched behind it. He laid the stock of the gun on the rock, aimed back down the hill and traversed the barrels left and right to make sure his field of fire was clear. He imagined the bushbuck running in his sights and he felt excitement shiver along his forearms, across his shoulders and up the back of his neck.
However, Jack kept the sword's chest which was filled with jewels. When Jack went to search for one treasure which he buried before Barbossa's mutiny, he couldn't find the exact spot. To find the treasure, he had to find one of his former crewmembers, Scurvy Joe , who had the treasure map tattooed on his back.
When Sparrow found out that Joe was imprisoned in Port Royal , he "invaded" the city alone. He was quickly captured and thrown into the dungeon. When he was confronted by Commodore Norrington, the naval officer commented that Jack really is the worst pirate that he ever heard of. When Joe tried to kill him, Jack easily captured him, and the Black Pearl' sailed to an island where the treasure was buried. Two days later, when dawn came, the sun turned the cursed pirate into his human form, allowing Jack to see the treasure map. However, when Bo'sun took the idol from Will, Jack attacked him, pushed him into a deep pit, and took the idol.
Will and Elizabeth disposed of Pintel and Ragetti , and the trio started escaping from the temple. Followed by angry pirates, the trio reached the beach and boarded the Black Pearl , which opened fire on the undead crew's ship , damaging it heavily. However, Jack knew that his former crew would follow the idol wherever he goes, so he decided to melt the idol and spend the gold in as many ports as possible.
Jack finds the treasure of the Isle of Lusee. Some time later, Jack and Will Turner ended on the Isle of Lusee , a place where the cruel governor treated the colonists as if he owned them, imprisoning the innocents and confiscating their treasure. Jack and Will convinced the people of the island to organize a revolution and overthrow the governor.
The people of the island, led by Jack and Will, stormed the governor's fort and Jack easily captured him, taking the keys of the treasury. However, when he and Will entered the treasury, Jack revealed that his plan was to steal the treasure for himself, not to give it to its rightful owners. However, Will convinced Jack not to steal the treasure, and because the people of the island considered him their hero, they gave him the largest share of the treasure.
Jack showing a drawing of a key to his crewmen. A year after his great escape from Port Royal, Jack realized his freedom came at a cost. The debt he had sworn to Davy Jones thirteen years prior had still not been paid. Whether Jack had the foresight to attempt to call off the debt, or whether it was simply a coincidence is unknown, but Jack embarked on a quest to locate the Dead Man's Chest , which legends say contained the still-beating heart of Davy Jones. But first, Jack allowed himself to be captured by the corsairs off the Canary Islands and taken to the Turkish prison in order to obtain information he needs to solve his impending dilemma.
He soon happened upon a valuable drawing of a key in a Turkish prison , giving him an advantage in his quest by figuring out that he must find the key itself. Jack was able to obtain this drawing, but soon encountered trouble, and fled the island within the confines of a coffin launched out to sea. In the middle of the Mediterranean Sea , Jack used the coffin as a makeshift boat to return to the Black Pearl , where he informed his crew of his new venture. Confused, mostly because of Jack not telling exactly what to look for, the crew of the Black Pearl agreed to sail off to search for the key and what the key might unlock.
Turner informed Jack that his time was up, and Jones was calling in his debt. To reinforce this, Turner branded Jack with the Black Spot , setting fear into Jack's heart and causing him to begin his quest for the key with all haste. He was so fearful of what his debt might entail, when he lost his hat , he told his crew to leave it.
It was through this fear that Jack could not bring himself even to tell his crew what forces pursued them. Jack Sparrow as the chief of the Pelegostos. Jack knew that as long as he remained on the open seas, he was in danger, so the Pearl weighed anchor at Isla de Pelegostos , the closest body of land, and one which Jack was likely familiar with. Even here, the crew of the Pearl was not safe, as they were summarily captured by a group of cannibalistic natives. Jack was made the chief of the tribe allowed to retain his position so long as he acted like a chief , although he found his fortunes had little improved when he learned that the natives believed him to be a god, and he would be eaten to release his spirit from its "fleshy prison".
Despite this, Jack played along, all the while looking for means of escape.
Meanwhile, some of his crew had already been eaten, and the rest held in cages made from the bones of their former companions. Jack's situation improved with the arrival of William Turner , seeking Jack in order to obtain his compass for Lord Cutler Beckett. Will inadvertently caused a distraction, through his capture by and subsequent escape from the cannibals, which gave Jack the time he needed to flee. Jack, Will and the surviving crew returned to the Black Pearl and set sail, though Jack still refused to head into open water.
Instead, he had unfinished business near Pelegosto, in the Pantano River on the island of Cuba. Jack coming for help in Tia Dalma's shack. The crew traveled through upriver in boats to the shack of Tia Dalma , where Jack hoped to find information on the key to the chest which contained Davy Jones's heart. He and Dalma had a history, and as Jack himself said, they had, at one time, been inseparable.
It was also implied that the two had once been lovers. Upon arrival at her shack, however, Jack was somewhat perturbed to find Dalma took more interest in Will than himself. However, Jack was able to trade Barbossa's undead monkey in exchange for information on the the location of the key, and details about Jones's heart. He was also given a jar of dirt , as Tia said that Davy Jones could not make port but one day for every ten years, and so Jack would bring land, in some form, with him.
Jack Sparrow bargains with Davy Jones. Armed with this knowledge, the crew set out to find Jones' ship, the Flying Dutchman. Will was summarily captured by Jones' crew after Jack told him to say "Jack Sparrow sent me to settle his debt". Jack witnessed the encounter from his ship, but was shocked as Davy Jones himself confronted him aboard the Black Pearl. He demanded Jack's debt be paid, but Jack tried to convince Jones otherwise, because of Barbossa's mutiny that happened two years after becoming captain of the Pearl.
However, Jones pointed out that because Jack had introduced himself as "Captain" Jack Sparrow throughout the years, he was still captain, even though he was not on the Pearl itself. After a series of bargains, Jones agreed that, should Jack bring him one hundred souls in three days, he would be free. As slim a chance as this was, Jack took it and Jones sealed the deal by removing the Black Spot. Jack then had the Pearl' s crew immediately set sail for Tortuga , noting that Jones did not specify what state the souls should be in. After arriving to Tortuga, Jack and Gibbs began recruiting crewmen for service on the Pearl in the Twelve Daggers tavern.
They managed to enlist a total of four mariners before a bar brawl broke out, started by the disgraced former Commodore , James Norrington. Jack and Gibbs managed to slip out, and began preparing the Black Pearl for launch. Jack realized Elizabeth's true desire was being reunited with Will, and knew he could use this to his advantage. Thus, ensuring that when she used Jack's compass, it would point to her true desire, in order to save Will, the chest.
Jack finally found a heading. It was there that they realized that the only reason Beckett wanted Jack's compass so that he could find the Dead Man's Chest. Jack took the documents, much to Elizabeth's annoyance, and refused to return them unless she could sufficiently "persuade" him to do so. Elizabeth attempted to persuade him, but Jack was immune. Jack with Elizabeth Swann aboard the Black Pearl. Later on during the journey, Jack once more approached Elizabeth, while being depressed about not being married already.
Jack offered her a drink and a marriage with him, as captain of a ship. Disgusted, Elizabeth turned down his offer of marriage. Jack then questioned her answer, stating that she would come over to his side in time. He stated that Elizabeth was curious and longed to feel the freedom and the life Jack enjoyed. In turn, Elizabeth told him she was sure one day Jack would prove himself to be a good man, and he would long for the reward of fame that would follow.
Jack was indeed enticed by this, but whatever attraction may have developed between the two was soon quashed when Jack noticed the Black Spot had reappeared on his palm. At that moment, Gibbs sighted land: Isla Cruces, and the end of Jack's quest. Jack had Norrington dig at the supposed burial site, as deigned by Elizabeth, using the compass. Her reading was correct, and Norrington soon unearthed the chest, which contained the heart that also proved Jack's claims. However, before Jack could open it, Will Turner arrived, having escaped from servitude aboard the Flying Dutchman.
He refused to let Jack open the chest, wanting to stab the heart within and thus free his father from his debt to Jones. Jack, naturally, wanted the heart for himself, in order to call off Jones' Kraken , and drew his sword. It was a standoff, exacerbated by Norrington's intervention, who wanted control of the heart for his own personal reasons. Jack during the swordfight at Isla Cruces. A three-way sword fight inevitably ensued, in which Jack attempted desperately to get his hands on the key.
The three-way duel progressed atop a stone church, where Jack finally got a hold of the key, but was disarmed in the attempt. Norrington then stated, with his blade pointed towards Jack, his intention to kill Jack for ruining his life. However, Jack deflected some of the blame onto Will's shoulders, and then fled through the graveyard with the key. Unfortunately, he was soon thrust back into the battle when the two duelists dislodged an old water wheel, and continued the fight inside and around it as it rolled through the jungle. Jack Sparrow opens the chest and steals the heart of Davy Jones.
Ultimately, however, Jack managed to hold on to the key, and opened the Dead Man's Chest after taking it from the pirate Hadras. Within was Davy Jones' heart , just as Tia Dalma had said, which Jack hid inside his jar of dirt back at the longboat on the beach. Davy Jones' crew soon caught up, and Jack became too preoccupied with fighting them off to notice Norrington studying the jar with great interest. Jack's companions were able to hold the pirates back, and fled in the longboat leaving Norrington, who instead fled into the jungle carrying the empty chest, thus distracting the pirates.
Jack made it back to the Black Pearl , which launched for the open water, safe in the knowledge that he was now in possession of the heart of Davy Jones. Jack confronts Davy Jones with his jar of dirt. As Jack had expected, the Flying Dutchman soon caught up with the Pearl , and he began taunting its Captain, holding his jar of dirt aloft. Jones chased the pearl at first firing at it but the Pearl soon outran the Flying Dutchman.
Shaking the vessel, the Kraken dislodged Jack's Jar of Dirt, which smashed on the deck, revealing nothing inside but a pile of dirt. Desperately searching for the missing heart, which was already making its way to Cutler Beckett in the possession of Norrington, Jack realized his advantage over Jones was lost. True to his usual form, Jack turned tail and fled in the ship's lone remaining boat, seeking to escape back to the relative safety of Isla Cruces.

However, despite all evidence to the contrary, Jack was indeed a good man at heart who knew he could not leave his crew to die in the attack, and began rowing back to his beloved Black Pearl. He arrived back on deck in time, seizing the rifle Elizabeth was trying to grab and manage to ignite a gunpowder trap set up by Will that wounded the Kraken and forestalled its attack for a moment. Jack ordered his crew into the longboat, at the cost of his ship. Gibbs was shocked at Jack's decision, but the Captain had seen sense; after all, she was only a ship. As the crew raced onto the longboat, Elizabeth thanked Jack for coming back to save them, and leaned in for a kiss.
Their kiss carried them to the mast, to which Elizabeth suddenly chained Jack. She had realized the Kraken was after Jack alone, not the rest of the crew, and this sacrifice would be the only way to ensure their survival. Jack conceded her trickery with a smile, calling her a "pirate". Apparently resigned to his fate, Jack watched her leave the ship. Captain Jack Sparrow bravely facing the Kraken. As soon as he was left alone on deck, Jack frantically tried to escape his chains.
He managed to slip out of his manacles, with the aid of oil from a broken lantern, though he was too late. No sooner had he freed himself that the Kraken returned, its fanged mouth rising up to deck-level. The Kraken belched out a roar, spraying Jack with slime and spitting out Jack's hat , eaten prior to Jack's arrival at Pelegosto. Placing his hat once more atop his head, Captain Jack Sparrow said "Hello beastie". Then he drew his sword and faced off against the Kraken as it dragged the Black Pearl under water.
With that, the captain went down with his ship, and Davy Jones considered his debt settled. Jack's captain-less crew returned, dejected and defeated, back to Tia Dalma's shack. There, they raised a toast to the late Captain Jack Sparrow, but Tia had not yet given up hope. She stated that there was a chance to bring Jack back from the depths of World's End , though it would entail a journey to Davy Jones' Locker. The crew agreed, and set out under the command of their new captain, the resurrected Hector Barbossa , a man who knew those waters well.
Jack Sparrow hallucinating in Davy Jones' Locker. Jack was taken by the Kraken to Davy Jones' Locker , where he was forced to endure the worst punishment he could ever take; his beloved Pearl was stuck on a seemingly-endless desert. For months, Jack was tormented by a series of hallucinations that personified the various aspects of his personality as members of his crew, torturing both his love of the sea and his idea of being the only "Jack Sparrow".
Divided in this manner, Jack had no hope of moving his ship, as though his crew did follow orders, the flaws of his "crew" made the Pearl unable to make any sort of progression with no wind to move the ship. Jack and the Black Pearl in the Locker. When Tia Dalma neared the island where Jack was stranded, she enchanted the rocks on the island to teleport to the Black Pearl , and the rocks cracked open, revealing an army of rock-crabs.
The rock-crabs used their combined strength to move the Black Pearl. Jack was off the ship at the moment, but was able to run and catch up to the Pearl and boarded it in time to sail it out to sea. By this point, his former crew, led by a resurrected Barbossa and aided by Tai Huang and the crew of the Hai Peng , arrived in the Locker, ostensibly to free Jack. Sparrow initially believed them to be mere hallucinations, and greeted them with mockery but was swayed when Elizabeth appeared and told him they are real, as he becomes surprised perhaps recalling the foul memory of his death, or maybe just recalling her kiss.
After being told by Gibbs he was in the locker, Jack became more nervous but remained unfazed by their appearance, and even greeted his former resurrected nemesis, Barbossa, with cheer, knowing full well that their only means of escape, the Pearl , was in Jack's possession. Sparrow is also told by what is happening in the living realm such as Beckett using Jones to slaughter pirates and the brethren court holding a meeting. He refused to travel with some of them as several of them have tried to kill him before stating one of them succeeded and noted Will was unaware of this.
He picked a few of them to come with him while leaving the rest behind. However, he was forced to concede that Barbossa, holding the navigational charts bestowed upon the crew by Sao Feng , would be useful in the escape, as in the locker, his compass didn't seem to work. Jack and Barbossa arguing aboard the Pearl. Almost immediately, a rivalry formed between Jack and Barbossa with both claiming to be the rightful captain of the Black Pearl.
The crew boarded the Pearl and set sail on the endless seas of Davy Jones' Locker, meeting Elizabeth's father, Weatherby Swann , along the way. The crew continued to sail through endless seas of Davy Jones' Locker, knowing that if they were unable to escape by sunset, they would remain trapped in that dimension forever. Jack, however, was able to decipher one additional phrase, "Up is Down". Puzzled at first, after listening to his shoulder angel and devil debate his future ironically they look just like Jack he figured out the meaning, and coerced his crew into rocking the ship back and forth.
Barbossa, realizing Jack had figured out the chart loosed the objects below deck, until at last the Pearl tipped upside down under the waves. As the sun sank below the horizon, the ship returned to the world of the living at sunrise; the ship had literally been turned upside down to pass between dimensions, going from the bottom of the sea, and floating all the way to the top. As soon as the crew emerged from the Locker, Barbossa pulled his pistol on Jack, leading to a tense stand-off. Barbossa wanted to lead Jack to Shipwreck Cove as he was a pirate, but Jack adamantly wished to leave the pirates to their fate.
This turned even Elizabeth and Will against Jack, but determined not to return to the locker, Jack pulled his pistol on Barbossa. Then it was revealed that none of the crews' pistols would work due to the wet powder of just passing through the sea. Jack and Barbossa were forced to grudgingly cooperate, and made for the nearest island to find fresh water. Jack and Barbossa at Black Sand Beach. The island the crew happened upon was the one on which the corpse of the Kraken had been left, after Davy Jones had been forced to kill it by Lord Beckett.
Jack had a moment of sympathy for the creature, perhaps seeing the reflection of his own mortality in its dead eye. Jack voiced his fear of death to Barbossa, who reminded him that death, not immortality, was the only certainty. It was at this point that Jack decided to redouble his efforts to discover a way of achieving eternal life. In another turning point, Jack, who originally planned on simply running and becoming the last pirate as the EITC killed them all, finally realized that Beckett had to be stopped, and agreed to meet with the other members of the Brethren Court.
Sao Feng with Jack and Barbossa aboard the Pearl. However, his quest was postponed by the arrival of the Empress , and the betrayal of Sao Feng. Jack and his crew were confronted by Sao Feng, who punched Jack on the nose in retaliation for a "great insult" paid by Jack at some point in the past. Jack was forced to give up the Black Pearl when it transpired that "Captain" Turner had struck a deal with Feng to take the ship for himself, in order to catch the Flying Dutchman and free his father from servitude.
Jack then, realizing that his rescue was a scam, asked the crew if anyone had actually missed him. Jack was then taken aboard the HMS Endeavour , flagship of Lord Cutler Beckett, where his diminished position did nothing to dampen his creativity at negotiation. He struck his own deal, promising to lead Beckett to Shipwreck Cove , and thus deliver the Brethren Court into his clutches, in exchange for Jack's freedom from both the company and from Davy Jones. Beckett, however, threatened to kill Jack to "Cut out the middle man", but Jack promised he would send the Brethren out to him, to ensure their battle.
Beckett agreed, as long as Sparrow could accomplish that feat. Jack using a cannon to escape the Endeavour. Their final negotiations were cut short through Barbossa and Feng's agreeing upon a common enemy, resulting in the Pearl's attack on the Endeavour. Jack hastily shook on a deal, then escaped the flagship and returned to his own vessel via a cannon and rope, to find Elizabeth had been given over to Feng in order for Barbossa to retain the Pearl.
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
By this point, Jack found himself unable to trust Will Turner, as he escaped the brig to attempt to help Jack honor his bargain with Beckett by leaving a trail for Beckett to follow. Jack, in realizing how far apart Will and Elizabeth were growing, conceived an elaborate plan where both he and Will could get what they both want. Jack's plan was that he would stab the heart of Davy Jones , thereby making him immortal, ensuring his father's freedom, and Will could still be with Elizabeth.
Jack then gave Will his compass, set him overboard while sending his regards to Davy Jones, and then continued on to meeting the Brethren at the Cove. Jack and Gibbs while arriving to Shipwreck Island. Arriving at Shipwreck Island , Jack commented on the lack of originality for pirates naming things, such as Larry , a geezer he once sailed with. He also witnessed Tia Dalma being sent below deck, to the Pearl 's brig, perhaps while overhearing her conversation with Barbossa. When gazing at Shipwreck Cove upon arrival, Barbossa and the crew commented on how many ships are at the Cove, in which Jack realized that he owed them all money.
Jack, Barbossa, and the rest of the Pearl 's crewmen carried on to the meeting at Pirate Hall. Jack Sparrow agrees with Elizabeth 's plan to fight. Whether this was playing them into the hands of Beckett or just pure logic, one can never guess. Jack skillfully used his extensive knowledge of surviving saying they could hold up within, but it would be devastating for morale, and half of them could die. He also mentioned that they could also released Calypso , as Barbossa petitioned, but Jack thought that to be too risky.
That they must fight. Jack and Teague after the Brethren Court meeting. Everyone agreed to this plan, at least until Barbossa mentioned that the Code specifically mentioned that only the Pirate King can declare war. Jack thought this to be made up, until Barbossa called upon Captain Teague , Jack's father to consult the Pirata Codex.
When a vote had to be made for the next King, Jack voted for Elizabeth, knowing she would support the decision to go to war. After the meeting, Jack went to confer his father. In the reunion, Teague offered Jack advice, concerning his search for immortality, "It's not just about living forever, Jackie. The trick is living with yourself forever. Jack responded uncomfortably that she looked great. Afterwards, Teague gave the head to Jack for him to keep, and Jack kept it on his belt. Jack switching places with Will Turner. With the meeting adjourned and the Pirate Lords decided upon their course of action, the fleet sailed out to meet the armada of the East India Company, the Black Pearl at its head.
When the pirates saw Cutler Beckett's armada and how many ships they were going against, they all turned angrily towards Jack, and sheepishly Jack called for the forces to parlay. During the parlay, he was traded for Will, who had been recovered by Beckett in order that his debt to Davy Jones would once again, be settled. Due to his escape, the debt had technically been reset. So years aboard the Dutchman were once again required. Because his plan was working, Jack was unconcerned with being sent to the Dutchman , though slightly put off by Jones. Jack hallucinating in the Dutchman 's brig. Jack was sent to the brig on board the Flying Dutchman , where he again experienced his hallucinations.
Jack weakly told them to go away, but they insisted that they couldn't go back to the locker without him. Then he saw a hallucination of what he might be like as a Dutchman crewman, and one of his other hallucinations commented that defeating Jones would put an alternative far out of reach. Jack though was adamant, and decided to escape and steal the Dead Man's Chest. After thinking like Will, Jack fled the brig in the same manner Will had released Jack from Fort Charles over a year before. He was then able to snatch the chest out from under the noses of its arguing guards, Mullroy and Murtogg in addition to recovering his effects.
However, he was accosted by Davy Jones and his crew during his escape, thereby forcing Sparrow to "fly" up into the Flying Dutchman' s rigging but Jones teleported to his location. There, a fierce and ferocious duel ensued between the two captains as the Flying Dutchman and the Black Pearl engaged in battle around a maelstrom conjured by Calypso. Jack Sparrow fighting Davy Jones for the Chest.
Seeing this, Jack gained the upper hand, by slicing off Jones' tentacle that held the Key, and disarming him. However, Jones broke Jack's sword , and then took the chest from Jack, sending him flying onto a rope where he reclaimed his pistol from one of Jones' crew. Swinging on the rope, Jack shot the chest from Jones' grip, sending it falling to the deck. The two engaged in a race to reach the chest whilst continuing their duel. While Jones was distracted by Will and Elizabeth, Jack ultimately managed to get the key to open the chest and held his broken sword over the heart.
Jack holding Davy Jones' heart. After Jones asked Will Turner his routine question: "Do you fear death? However, Jack was plunged into a quandary when Jones stabbed Will Turner, leaving him to die. Jack knew that the only way to save his old friend and defeat opponent would be to allow him to stab the heart, thus ensuring Will immortality, though at the cost of Jack's own chance at the same.
As Bootstrap Bill Turner snapped out of his delirium and engaged Jones, Jack fought with himself, struggling between his own dream of immortality and his one chance to save Will. In the end, Jack's altruistic nature won over, as Jack forfeited his immortality. He placed his broken sword in Will Turner's dying hand, guiding it to stab the heart, killing Jones in the process.
As the Dutchman' s crewmen were coming towards them, Jack was forced to drag the frantic Elizabeth away from Will's body, knowing that they only had moments until the Dutchman was swallowed up in the maelstrom. While Will's heart was carved out by Bootstrap Bill, Jack rigged a makeshift parachute and fled with the distraught Elizabeth back to the Black Pearl with the other pirates. Arriving onboard the Black Pearl , the rest of his crew wanted to flee the field as the ship was damaged and the the Endeavour was now coming upon them.
Jack though, perhaps now determined to finish Beckett off, and salvage the cause of Piracy due to losing his shot at immortality, declined. And when the Flying Dutchman burst from the sea, now captained by Will Turner, Jack knew they now had a fighting chance, and quickly readied the ship to turn on Beckett. Together, the flagship of piracy and the ship of supernatural power turned on the Endeavor, dealing a devastating dual broadside on the symbol of British Power.
Jack finds out that the his ship is gone. With the battle won, Jack bade farewell to Elizabeth, who had to be with Will before he leaves to do his duty to ferry souls. He then sailed the Black Pearl to Tortuga , where he was found in the company of Scarlett and Giselle , persuading them with an offer to ride aboard his ship.
However, upon returning to the harbor, Jack found the Pearl gone: Barbossa had mutinied once again by taking the Pearl , marooning him and Joshamee Gibbs ashore. This didn't seem to faze Jack, however, who resorted to using a dinghy left to him. Scarlett and Giselle slapped Jack, after Jack confessed many things to them, which resulted in Gibbs being slapped by Jack.
Jack Sparrow sails to find the Fountain of Youth. Jack had anticipated Barbossa's treachery, and had cut out the middle part of Sao Feng's navigational charts for himself. He was running up his pirate flag , while singing " A Pirate's Life for Me ", in his dinghy. Looking at Sao Feng's charts, he discovered that the location of the Fountain of Youth is in Florida , as the legends foretold. Using his compass, he located a bottle of rum and began his search for the Fountain of Youth. A happy Jack then sailed off in his dinghy, while drinking the rum, as he began his journey to achieve immortality.
Even with the help of his map and compass , Jack Sparrow's search for the Fountain of Youth would last for several years. It weren't the lure of charmed waters that first sent Jack on a course for the fabled Fountain but rather Jack set off in pursuit of his beloved ship, the Black Pearl , stolen from him by Hector Barbossa. Knowing Barbossa was after the Fountain of Youth as well, Jack attempted to find the Fountain on his own.
