Pedro yearns for the pirateâ€™s life. Though he is only the cabin boy on Captain Crossbonesâ€™ ship, he daydreams about becoming a real pirate. When that chance finally comes, Pedro steals a mermaidâ€™s gold locket. The mermaid chastises Pedro, but he laughs and boasts, â€œItâ€™s what we pirates do!â€ That initial boast, however, soon gives way to regret as Pedro contemplates his actions. He resolves to return the locket and to free the mermaid that Captain Crossbones holds captive. The outcome is a happy one as Pedro expresses his contrition to the mermaid, and assures her that the pirateâ€™s life is not for him.
