Phaeton nods in agreement. "Such loss of life grieves me and She who guides
me. Though I wish to leave this boat as soon as possible, I can think of no
faster way to get to land, however."

Osiris can't determine anything precise about its nature, leans down to pick
it up and feels an intense stabbing pain in his arm as he grasps it. His
hand spasms and he drops the sword back to the ground.
"You alright, buddy?" Bongo says, leaning down and hoisting the sword,
without so much as a twinge. "Kinda big for me, you still want it Osiris?"

The room is sparsely decorated. A few pictures, an oak chest with some
clothes, a few books, but nothing in the way of valuable personal momentoes,
save only for a framed picture of a beautiful, dark-haired woman. On the
inside of the frame is a folded piece of paper and another picture, of the
same woman, but much younger and laying in a bed, pale and sickly.
The piece of paper has only the following written on it: "Lat.36n Long.81w".
[Meanwhile, above deck...]
"I shall instruct the crew to make steam for Dublin." Phaeton says.
Suddenly, one of the crew shouts "Hey! Look over the side." Everyone on
deck peers over and sees a figure swimming for all he's got towards the
"Silly bastard'll never make it!" someone shouts. "Who is it?" someone else
says. "I'll wager it's Silbran. He an' the Capn' was mighty close."
