The Captain leaves to ponder Martine's offer.
Pipi picks up the broken pencil and sharpens both ends.
Pipi: "Master Swordsmouse, I see the reason in your thinking and I hope once this battle is won, we shall be allies. But I cannot serve on a ship possibly owned by an albino Frenchy who whips girls while their backs are turned!" Then armed with a pencil stub in each hand, she turns on Martine, but he dodges.
However, Squeekipeep also turns on Martine.
Squeekipeep: "If you're going to pick a fight, pick someone who has a weapon to defend themselves! Let's see how you like pain!"
He stabs his sword into Martine's back, and Martine collapses.
