Rating: G

Pairings or characters involved: Stephen, Jack and Surprises
Character to give rum to: Mr Pullings, four shots, I believe
Notes: For challenge #5. I honestly couldn't think of any other way to do this. Sorry.


Captain Aubery had denied Stephen's request, forbidding him to leave sight of the Surprise. He hadn't granted leave to anyone else, but that had done little to improve the naturalist's mood.

He watched with concern as his friend brooded, sitting on the pier with only his cigars and dark disposition for company, expression proscribing him from any attempt at consolation. The crew, as always, doted on their doctor, trying to cheer him.

It was later thought that perhaps more care should have been directed to the question of loading, but, with the tide missed, Stephen got his wish after all.
