Alrighty! I can see that you are new to writing. Your concept is interesting, and what I liked more was how you're focussing on giving the enemy a background as well. It helps in creating insight. If I may be so bold, I'd like to suggest that you replace dialogues with descriptions about character's response and emotions. Try to keep dialogues to a bare minimum so that you can create an impact when humour is what you want to display. And don't you worry about writing, you'll get better over time. P.S. I gave it a read this morning but I wasn't logged in. Just mentioned it if my name doesn't show up in your reads.
I really liked how you're pacing the story. Not too slow, not too fast. The concept of helping out your own character is interesting. Keep up with the good work!
This story is so wholesome! Not only is your writing superb, you also have a wonderful sense of humour! I loved it. Adding it to my library.
A pirate needs a talking bird, after all!
