Special Thanks to my two biggest fans:
Whose perceptive critique helped me make the story work
Whose constant encouragement helped keep me going.
I guess it was the vibration of the deck plates that dragged me back to consciousness. I lay there with my face pressed against the decking for several moments trying to get my bearings.

I felt completely drained and wanted nothing more than to go back to sleep but there was something tugging at my mind. Some nagging little voice was running around in my head trying to get my attention.
