I’m hoping to do a bit better this week for getting round the group. Sorry if I didn’t get to you last week.
Picking up again from last week where the argument between Kit and Wigram was broken up by O’Neill, who outranks them both.
O’Neill looked them over with a knowing eye and jerked his thumb towards the quarterdeck. “You don’t need to convince me. He‘s awake and wants to know what’s going on,” he said. “So—Wigram, Penrose, and you, too, Denny, come with me and the rest of you shut up and go back to sleep unless you want to changes watches now? Penrose, leave the shirt – a little night air won’t hurt you. ”
Kit was half way along the deck before he realised both Wigram and Denny were dragging their heels.
O’Neill glanced at him and shook his head. “You did it right and proper.”
Uh oh, they’re in trouble.
