The ship was quite that night. Men and vessel subdued by lack of wind and oppressive heat. In that stillness, the click of beads and his own hoarse whisper seemed terribly loud. “Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus…” Stephen paused, hearing footsteps outside his door. He shoved the rosary into a pocket, turning to his books. Whoever it was passed without stopping. Sighing, he continued the prayer. He doubted anyone would report him. They only would frown and look the other way. To them, praying was less a crime than swearing on the quarterdeck or shaking one's fist at the captain.

Oh, you know I adore Catholic!Stephen, and worry about him.

His reaction is great: the universal language of I WASN'T DOING ANYTHING JUST NOW.
