First topic message reminder :

There are three ship schedules. One leaves at 8 PM and will arrive across the gulf at noon; the other ship will head to Berkshire at 8 PM and arrive at noon. Another schedule has a ship leaving at 10 AM and arriving at 8 PM; the return trip is also from 10 AM to 8 PM. The third schedule is the fastest, and the least fancy - it's express, not luxury. Both ships can make a complete trip in a day; one leaves Berkshire at 6 AM, arrives at noon, leaves again at 6 PM and is back in Berkshire at midnight; the other is twelve hours apart. Each schedule has two ships in a rotation, in case that wasn't clear.

The first one is a luxury cruise, for those unconcerned by time and overflowing with money and boredom. The second is a standard ship; standard in this case means first class at a minimum, absolutely smooth and fancy. The express boat isn't extremely ornamented, nor is it frequented by those with the most money. As such, its price is lower. It's designed for those lacking in time; if time is money, the richest have all the time in the world.

Not that any of these are anywhere near affordable to commoners.

"Maybe he was afraid they would hurt us or try to ransom us?"

Leticia laughs loudly, an acerbic, bitter chortle. "Just like every other person in that festering city did? I can't believe they're so uncultured. I've never seen displays of barbarism so obtuse and unadulterated than in that capital of feigned civility and wealth! At least there were nice people there, though, like Nalima and Valentine. But I really don't want to go back there. Too old-fashioned."

"I...I can certainly see why Yoren hates it there. I'm kinda glad he wasn't there the whole time though."

"It'd probably be better if we had a secure place, I think. Three-quarters of the land is giant mansions... I bet an indoors life is much less perilous. Maybe we could go back for a week and stay with some of our new friends. I bet that would be a lot safer and more fun."

"Yeah... Maybe we could stay with Nalima or Valentine next time we go. It'd be nice to have people who know how things work there too. All the political stuff makes my head spin..."

"Yeah. ...That said, it'll be nice to have a break from that place for awhile. How are you feeling?"

"Better but not 100% yet. I don't think I like boats, though. Hopefully once I'm back to normal sailing won't bother me.."

"Oh right yeah about that... Guess what I bought for you?! Ta-dah!!!" It's a potent potion against seasickness. It seems to have the side effect of making one very sleepy, though...

"Sleep side effects, but I guess sleeping through the tossing will be nice~ What will you do while I sleep though?"

"Toss loaves of bread into the ocean and see if I can summon sharks or giant birds of prey, most likely."

"It's meatbread! I invented it myself. Nalima has a nice kitchen so I had plenty of time to experiment when I wasn't watching over you."

"Of course! Only on open-flame devices though." Ah, fire. That explains it.

"I see. I'm fairly sure there aren't any sharks around here, though. What would you even do if you caught one? Eat it? Keep it for a pet?"

"Good luck! Are you gonna try to catch it with your bare hands?"

"Nah, I'm just gonna see if I can catch it - on film! I don't wanna get to close to the water, cause I can't swim and the last time I was stranded in the middle of the ocean I almost died." She holds up a pictograph box she got who-knows-where in Berkshire.

The captain of the ship announces the departure time is soon.
