I was aiming for exactly 77 words. :-)



Getting two ships close enough to converse, especially warships of very different designs, was not a quick process, and it was based in part on trust.

Captain Titrian & the garishly-dressed foreign captain relied instead on mutual curiosity and a great deal of hand-waving, while their ruler stood at the bow, smiling, accompanied by a nervous-looking attendant.

Titrian didn't blame the attendant. He had been listing the ways this could go wrong; he was up to thirty-seven.

Me, too!

This series has serious overtones of Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The ship is brightly colored like the Dawn Treader herself, and the name Titrian reminds me of Narnian names (Drinian, Caspian).
