I’d been debating whether or not to use the expletive ‘bloody’, but then I thought ‘why the h-e-double-hockey-sticks not?’.
Whoah, Milo really in his element when he’s in his depths. He’s ready to straight on confront Alice when he thinks she’s there.
Of course, he will NOT know what to do with all that adrenaline when he sees Charlie.
Are you expecting violence to erupt?
Given that it’s Charlotte, no. I’m expecting him to not know what to do even more because he is loaded for bear. At least momentarily. Then it’s keep her somewhere safe and deal with the immediate problem at hand. I expect that even with disaster, Milo is in his element like he never could be topside.
Who is this “Milo” person you speak of and what is he doing on board *my* ship?
Oops. Thanks for the correction. Been dealing with someone with a similar name recently.
And here we see demonstratred again that Godfrey is not just any Perfect English Butler. He is, in fact, a Perfectly Evil English Butler. Godfrey could have easily prepared his employer for what awaits by saying “…Young miss Wolstone…” But really, where’s the fun in that? You go, Godfrey!
Think he would have had to say “The Younger miss Wolstone” or “Miss Wolstone the younger” to be clear. However, Yes this should be fun.
Do you suppose Godfrey is at all invested in the personal dramas going on around him? Or maybe he takes silent amusement in watching dispassionately?
Pure entertainment for Godfrey!
Oh, yes. Let the sports begin!
Sports? Is youthful angst a sport?
Forget the fact that we’re plummeting through the earth at improbable and likely quite dangerous speeds, the important thing is that we have tea with our unexpected young guest. 😉
Well, yeah. You don’t actually believe this is a plot-driven story, do you?
I figured it was steam-driven…. *rimshot*
Who HOO! my second Facepalm! My goal is to collect enough to make a Checkers Set….
It really is Alice!
Really? But how will we ever know if you’re right?
My guess is flying crockery.
YMM flying china instead.
Why so surprised? You know she can’t be stopped by a mere two people and a drop of a few thousand feet…
I was thinking she was already on the driller when it launched (is launched the right term? started digging?), but what you say is also quite true.
