I got it, we were attacked by a french 36 gun Frigate are mission was to drop of a person who was going to France on a spying mission.This person i had saved his life as we were boarded he was attacked by a couple of Frenches  i had me knife and jumped on 1  stabbed him in the back and knocking other one over as well. which gave time for the spy to shoot other 1.
