Sophia’s garb was black, her eyes red. The news had travelled swiftly, then, arriving before him. Strange how he felt both regretful and relieved not to break it to her.

It was a small reprieve. She had to need to know what had happened, how his obsession with efficient gunnery could lead to this and why Stephen had not saved him. Will she curse me? he wondered, not afraid. She could say nothing that he didn’t believe already.

But no questions greeted him, no recrimination, only tears and a desperate embrace. The widows clung together, taking what comfort they could.
