Re: The SS Dementieva, New Horizons
As the mists over the drydocks slowly disappear on a cold november morning, and the sun rises as light begins to flood the world once more, a familiar figure emerges in the distance.
Putting down the bags carrying his clothes and belongings, his eyes glance over the majestic ship that has brought him and his friends so much joy and happiness in what seems to be a previous life.
"She still smells the same. And her aura has remained unchanged over all this time..."
He makes his way onto the ship. Slowly. Taking it all in.
Being one of the first to sign up for duty again, the walk is a quiet and solemn one. Just the way he had imagined and hoped it would be.
"Empty and quiet corridors. Hmm, what a contrast to my days."
Eventually, spotting a mere few familiar and new faces alike along the way, he reaches the the upper decks and continues on to the Bridge, gently knocking the door.
"Now come on, you whackjob! Don't keep an old friend waiting!"
The door opens and there stands Captain Ross. Restored to full glory as the Captain of the SS Dementieva.
"Sometimes, my old friend," he replies, "things are worth waiting for."
"Former training accommodation manager reporting back for duty, Captain!"
"Welcome back aboard, Alenyaa. We may not be setting out right away, but we are certainly set towards new and uncharted horizons. I'm happy to see you are here along with the new faces, knowing some more old friends are undoubedtly to join us for this new chapter. Your old cabin is waiting for you, go make yourself at home, meet with your old friends that are already here and get to know the new ones. I will see you around rather sooner than later."
"Thank you, Captain. Although I guess the old training accommodations will not be as intensely used as they were back in the day, I will make it my solemn duty to tend to them once more."
As he makes his way for his old cabin, he could swear he hears an old familiar mischevous giggle echoing through the mostly still dark corridors.
He pauses to listen and after a few moments smiles to himself.
"Alenyaa, you silly old goat, your mind is playing tricks on you already. But I forgive you. After all, it feels wonderful to be strolling through these corridors I have so long called my home and soon will again.... Lena... I cannot wait for you to get back here..."
Thank you, Elena
