I know, Christmas has already left the building and I’m late to the party. But I had the idea before Christmas, so there.

“Mooooorning!” Nate Havisham’s deep voice was booming through the office. The bunch of staff girls beamed at him while he was heading for his commander’s desk, coffee cup in one hand, charming smile on his lips. “Good morning, Lieutenant Havisham. How are you doing?”, they cooed, swooning over his ruffled hair as soon as his back was turned towards them. “Commander Klaiber, you wanted to see me?” When in public and not on the ship, he always used the offical[…]
