That night, out in the sea, a merchant ship is on the way to Goa. It was a matter of time before they touched the land. It is just a short distance from the port. As the ship sailed, a cannon was fired and the ship caught fire. Everyone ran on the deck. The clouds parted and in the moonlight, they say the huge pirate ship loom towards them. Before they could defend, another cannon was fired. It hit the ship on the sides. Within a few moments, the pirates boarded the ship. Within a short span, all the crew members and the merchants on board are killed gruesomely as the pirates went around hacking them to death. They then looted the cargo and as they escaped the ship, they set it on fire.
