Northern Parts of Ferren’s Sea
Enough already! Captain Fweyling says we got caught in some pretty tough ice flows and we lost a few days. “It happens,” he said to me, “That’s why they call it the Ice Islands Sea.” Then he walked away before I could ask him about Donnessling and his nossring.
Note to self: Be faster next time!
And, why hasn’t Bobby been in touch. Another day of worrying about him. If he doesn’t tell me soon that he’s safe and sound, he won’t be very safe OR sound!
[LATER THAT NIGHT]
It’s the middle of the night, and one of Fweyling’s crew knocked on my door to wake me. They finally got a blink bat from Bobby and the Captain thought I’d want to see it right away. Okay, so that goes in Fweyling’s plus column. I wouldn’t say I’m getting to like the guy — I still think he’s hiding something about Donnessling and his fellow nossring — but this was a good call.
Bobby is good. He said forgot about keeping me up to date. I’m relieved, and I’m going to kill him when I’m back!
I’ll sleep well tonight. At least what’s left of it.
[ONE HOUR LATER]
I can’t get back to sleep. Bobby never tells me when something bad is happening, and the more I think about his message the more I think he’s holding back on something. He doesn’t want to worry me. Idiot! I’ve told him over and over that I don’t worry. I don’t think he believes me. Smart kid.
