Word count: 100
Pairings or characters involved: Stephen, Nameless Midshipman
Character to give rum to: Mr Pullings
Notes: For challenge #2. Poor Jack *g*
Jack had sent a midshipman for me. Impatient brat, I would climb down when I was ready. Turning back to the ledge, I marvelled at how eggs’ shape prevented them from rolling off the bare rock.
Now how was I to get them down unbroken?
“The captain’s respects! The tide is turning!”
Perhaps in my pockets…
“He said if you don’t come, he’ll send the marines!”
Now, back down the cliff.
“You really must hurry, sir!”
I sighed. One day Jack would surely work himself into an apoplectic attack, he was far too concerned with such trivial matters
