It's clear Anne didn't expect this rebuttal, and she stutters a quip back at Samantha. "Well, I—I was being a good friend."

The squad members can hear a few more laughs from the deck, but Marcus Riddle thankfully puts a stop to this. "Okay, despite how enlightening this conversation has been, I think it's time we be on our way. Captain, may we depart?"

"Of course, Mr. Riddle. Please, come aboard!"

The captain promptly orders his crew to get to work while he welcomes the passengers onto and ship and guides them into the main deck, where the cabins are located. Strangely enough, Nick is assigned the cabin right between Anne's and Samantha's.

"I've been informed you might need an area where you can discuss in private, so I've arranged something for you. This cabin right here has been emptied and only has chairs in it; it might be a tight fit, but I believe there's enough space for all of you."

Once everyone is settled in, Captain Oldturn takes his large hat off, holds it against his chest and approaches May.

"A thousand apologies my lady. I can't help but notice you're a connoisseur of the fine wines. If you are ever in the mood for something more exotic, I have an exquisite red from Lofell which I've been holding on to for the last ten years."

Captain Oldturn is so smooth, it takes a few seconds before May realizes he's holding her hand.

"You'd be doing me a great honor."

The portly man—taller than the monk by a head and at least twice her weight—politely kisses her hand before stepping back and putting his bicorn hat back on his head.

"Ladies, this is lovely but he's getting away!" - Smirk points at a grouchily hunched over Nick Bradshaw briskly moving away from them and towards the cabins, where he's likely to shut himself for a while.

"Oh my, you are smooth one, Kapitän." May blushes at the attention, caught completely off guard by Captain Oldturn's polite invitation. "May vould be happy to share drink later after duty is over."

Theodore Oldturn smiles, extends an hand to one side and bows. "Misters. Ladies. If you ever need anything, I am but at your service."

"Thank you, Captain Oldturn," the Colonel says.

He then walks down the corridor and goes back on the upper deck to supervise his crew.

"We'll reconvene in the meeting room in an hour. Understood?"

"Yes, sir," Anne says.

Before Oldturn gets too far away, Samantha tries to sense something from him in the ether.

Spellcraft 30
Anything from the captain. Green magic will set off an alarm bell for sure.

"Understood, sir."

She looks between Anne, May, and their flustered mute teammate Nick, wondering what they could get up to in an hour before their private squad meeting.

Samantha:
 

"You're dismissed. You can go have fun now."

Colonel Riddle shoos his subordinates away and walks towards his cabin.

"Sir," Sam calls after Marcus, "with respect, if the others have little to do, might we move the meeting up half an hour? Or more?"

"Hmm?" The Colonel turns to face Samantha again. "No, it'd be too dangerous. Someone could be waiting to cast Scan on the ship while we're still close to the land. I also need to check if the cabins are bugged."

Anne nods at the Colonel's wisdom.

Sam nods. "Yes, sir."

She'll lay her backpack on the cot in her quarters, then join May in her room.

Nicks slumps down on his bunk, in his quarters. Smirk goes have fun.

May nods too. "Makes sense. To cabins!" May heads to her cabin and spends all of 30 seconds unpacking which involves tossing her backpack in the corner and kicking her clogs into the opposite corner near her bed. She then tests out the bunk bed by sitting on it and bouncing a bit.

In May's quarters, Sam gets out her ink and quill and starts writing.

"Well, thankfully the captain is at least...'safe'," she says, giving May a conspiratorial look.

Then she smiles at her. "Looks like he's taken a shine to you, Punchdrunk!"

May is now walking around her cabin on her hands, occasionally stopping to do hand stand push ups, before turning around and hand walking back the other way. "He's sweet. Is nice to meet gentleman."

Sam's expression turns into disbelief, then mischief. She scribbles down a few more words, and says, "I'm telling everyone you like old men. Anne will practically thank me for it after what I said today."

May finishes another set of push ups and starts walking across the floor back the other way. She's familiar with Sam's sense of humor and doesn't miss a beat riposting right back by doubling down. "Of course May like older men. No have to teach them how to pleasure May. And why Anne care? She one who teach May this."

Sam shakes her head. "Oh, that is harsh! You need to hold onto that. Hey, I think the squad needs to go easy on Nick, you know? He already has his aspect trying to embarrass him with every word that comes out of his mouth."

"Nein. Smirk make jest so Nick not be depressed. May keep doing part." She does one more set of handstand push ups and then springs to her feat. "Sam sure she not like Nick? He nice boyfriend."

"Well, it would be kind of adorable to try and set him up with someone, she admits, but that isn't me. I'd help someone if they wanted to get close to him, but he's the wrong type for me. What about you, what are you looking for?"

The monk considers her answer for a moment and then finally says, "May not sure yet. That's vy she go on dates. But May suppose she like athletic man, someone to exercise vith. A gentleman vould be nice too but not too much. May vant to have fun too. Oh, and he have to beat May in sword fight."

Sam scoffs lightly. "There are at least ten candidates for you to test up on deck, before that clandestine game of strip poker you're planning."

(that was a side comment on her promiscuity)

"Whatever you say, May, in the meantime I'll be playing silly games for keeps and making out like a bandit. You have yours, and I have mine."
