"ABOUT IT BEING MID-MORNING ALREADY!" Jeff snapped, "That is absolutely critical information for the captain to know!"

"You told me NEVER to be critical of what the captain knows!" Finnbarr retorted, "Now you want me to? Well I can certainly oblige!"

"Well then, Mister Finnbarr, why don't ya--" Jeff began, before Molly mercifully interrupted.

"Captain, I have maintained our heading of forty degrees due east and we are making fine time. However..."

"However!? Why is there always a however!? Or a "but", or an "unfortunately", or a "the only problem is"! CAN YA PEOPLE NEVER DELIVER GOOD NEWS AND JUST LEAVE IT AT THAT!" Jeff exploded.

"..." Molly pursed her lips to one side, then smiled and shrugged, "Of course sir, no bad news to report!"

"Oh, good!" Jeff grunted, "Ya had me worried for a moment there."

"As delightful as this has been," Melvyn stated as he tipped his hat the the group, "I believe that my son and Mr. Cook might be needing some help in the kitchen, so I shall bid you all farewell for now. Miss Aurora."

He tipped his hat once more to the girl, and departed down the stairs. He was about to head below deck, when he took a turn and headed for Prince Carder's cabin. He approached it and knocked on the door.

The door opened slowly till the prince popped his out.

"You wish to see me?" he asked.

"On the contrary, I believe you wish to see me," Melvyn said confidently, "Shall I come in?"

"Yes you may." replied the prince as he let Melvyn in, "So tell me, you helped Tarek to retrieve the shards of Losh and helped him restore his empire from the Cerulean Republic. What made you do that?"

"I see you've talked to Wondu," Melvyn said cautiously, "Be careful in your search for the Shards, Your Highness. You have no idea what danger they involve."

"My father and mother told me about them that whoever has them in his hands, controls the weather. Me, you're friend, & my former captain were sent to find those stones. Because Wondu told me that the Veridia Empire had lost against the Ceruleans again. And if they have them, we must stop them or else the world will be in danger! Or worse yet, any evil being will take them!" Carder told him.

"Your Highness, if I may be so bold," Melvyn said as if to begin a long dramatic reply, "Calm. Down."

"I know. But my father won't allow himself or anyone else to be part of using the from the stones." advised Carder calmly and whispered to Melvyn, "Which is why I offered the Captain of this ship to take me and my men to Veridia. Once we retrieved these stones, we'll dispose them before any evil being takes them!"

"Yes, but your highness, you must be discreet about it," Melvyn cautioned. "You have no idea who you are sailing with, and who you shall encounter in your search. You are also without your guards, so you only have Mr. Spear and Wondu to rely on. And of these, you only really know Mr. Spear, which means your friends are few. You must hide the true meaning of your search, and you must NOT mention the shards. To ANYONE."
