“Until the Sea shall give up her dead.”

That night, wine and laudanum gave Stephen a vision of the End. The Dead rose from the Sea, climbing to the deck, swords at the ready. Their tattered clothes barely covered them and flesh hung rotten from their faces, but Stephen knew who they were. Every man he had killed, in battle, Ireland or with a surgeon’s knife, was coming back for him.

He fell from his cot, screaming.

“What a fellow you are, Stephen,” said Jack, stroking his hair gently.

Stephen slept – the dead would have to pass his friend first.

Lovely. I like the way on one hand, Jack doesn't make a deal out of it... but is still right there to comfort him. Stephen's security in Jack's presence is touching. :)

Does he? Oh dear, oh dear. That doesn't sound very healthy.

Those who don't dream go stark raving mad pretty fast.
