Leat watched for a moment as De Guarde departed, then turned away in disgust. However, at that moment further along the deck, amongst the diuspersing crew members he caught sight of Lieutenant Cartwright admonishing one of his Marines... who from this distance looked as if he had a black eye also. Well, well.

Leat took a few paces further along the deck, halting a little distance away to catch Cartwright after he'd finished with his drummer.

Of course not. Cartwright nodded slightly, ignoring the uncertain glare being sent his way from Corporal Johnson.

"I see," he said again. "Head below directly - "

Another Marine appeared at the bruised one's elbow, looking almost defiant. "It were my fault, sar. Ol' Tom woulda been arrigh' if I ain't of 'urried 'im along, like."

Well. Cartwright lifted an eyebrow at the second Marine, surprised at the boy's appearance and statement. He looked from one to the other, then said "Very well. You will see to it that your 'Ol' Tom' gets safely down the surgeon's berth. That'll be all."

"Aye, aye, sir," Oxley said, slightly startled when Andrew Shepherd popped up next to him, seemingly out of nowhere. It wasn't as though the lad needed to cover for him... and then he saw de Guarde making his way to the companionway.

Ah. Maybe he did.

(Oxley and de Guarde head here.)

De Guarde hadn't turned all till he reached the copanionway and then more out of habit than need, he glanced over his shoulder. He caught sight of Oxley and another marine that was accompanying him.

He turned in disdain and cursed. Surely they weren't... going to the surgeon also?

"Aye sar," the second Marine said, saluting. Cartwright fought back a bemused smile as the pair hurried toward the companion ladder. The brief encounter was unusual, certainly. As he turned away to resume his former place by the quarterdeck stairs, he noticed one of the sea-officers hovering nearby, looking intent on catching him as he passed.

"Good morning sir," Cartwright greeted as he approached, offering a salute.

"Good morning," Leat said, giving a small smile and touching his hat back. "Lieutenant Cartwright, I could not help but notice that one of your men, the lad your were talking to just now, had a black eye. I was wondering if you could enlighten me as to what he named as the cause?"

Ah, this was not the sort of conversation he wanted to have with a sea-officer. Cartwright inclined his head, just slightly.

"He was unlucky enough to trip over a ring-bolt while on his way to the head during the night," the Marine answered casually. "It seems he was being hurried along, rather improperly, by another fellow and was distracted."

Leat caught the meaning in Cartwright's attitude and understood. The man was new, still getting used to the other officers and was not sure how far he could trust them - and had a natural tendancey, as was well and proper, to reduce unwanted interference with his men.

"How unfortunate," he replied, his tone just as casual. Just as he thought; a scrap. "It seemed to be quite a night for accidents - one of the men in my Division tripped and fell down a companionway. Fortunate he didn't break his neck - or anything else for that matter."

He hoped the confidence would be taken for what it was, not a reproof. Such matters were difficult enough to handle as it was.

Another man had fallen during the night? How unfortunate. Cartwright nodded, once, at the sea-officer's words. Quite lucky that the seaman had not, in fact, broken his neck.

"A most welcome piece of luck, that," Cartwright offered, unwilling to be too forward in his remarks. "Weariness after over-excitement is to blame, I should think?"

"Possibly," Leat conceded. "Though I think he had little to be excited about."

He paused, looking over at the waves rise and fall before continuing.

"Although he did not come out completely unscathed. Funny thing really; apparently as he tried to stop himself falling he knocked his arm and smacked his own fist into his eye - gave himself a black eye. Most peculiar, but then again, stranger things have happened."

All of this was said in a quite light, casual tone as before; yet Cartwright, if he were the officer Leat supposed him to be, could not fail to catch his drift.

"Strange indeed," Cartwright agreed. It was bad enough that Marines should be fighting without having them getting into scraps with Tars. He'd have to speak with that young Marine again, once he was returned to duty by the surgeon.

"I'm sure the men will settle themselves now we're back at sea," he added after a pause. "Leaving port can try some spirits unduly, I'm sure."

Leat nodded. Cartwright seemed to have got the message.

"Aye, it often does that," he said. "Especially Lisbon. Though I don't think any of 'em were that sorry to leave; stank like sewer that place did!"

"It did at that."

It seemed they were both satisfied with the resolution that had been unofficially reached. Nodding slightly, Cartwright glanced meaningfully toward the paraded Marines, who were still waiting to begin the ritual of drill.

"If you'll excuse me now, sir, I'd like to begin exercising my lads. We'll try to stay out of the way as much as we're able," he added with a slight smile. Finding and maintaining a balance between the Marines and the seamen was often a delicate task.

Leat smiled and nodded. Cartwright was certainly an improvement on that useless sot Braithwaite, thank God! He did not know whether he would have been able to have the same such 'informal word' with Quinn - and thankfully until now he'd never had to.

"I shan't detain you any longer, Mister Cartwright. Good day to you."

Cartwright returned the sea-officer's smile, pleased to have reached an agreeable accord. "Thank you sir. Good day to you as well."

He saluted again before moving toward where Sergeant Quinn and Corporal Johnson were standing. Despite that brief disruption, he was confident that the day would progress in a tolerable fashion.

The two lieutenants parted company, and Leat slowly paced his way further aft. The weather was clear, a fine stiff breeze speeding their progress and for a moment the young lieutenant's heart soared. This was the sort of sailing that every mariner loved; the moments where he could feel that he sailed for pleasure as much as duty. He glanced to the taffrail, wondering if any of their guests had ventured up yet but there was no sign of either the doctor of the capitaine - and of course Padstowe would not be able to venture up. The doctor was probably below seeing to his patient or talking with Crozier and des Sablieres.

Stephen was still asleep in his cot below, the not insignificant laudanum dose he had taken before sleeping keeping him under even during holystoning, and the bells, and all the other noises of a life aboard a man of war. The warm, dreamless state was comforting, and he slept on, curled beneath his blanket.

Raoul was awake - if, he wondered, if he had ever actually been asleep. He could take the motion, unless it got worse: it reminded him of long slow days in the saddle, when adjusting to the sway and the occasional lurch became second nature. But the noise was not made up of sounds he was used to. The creaking, the sudden running steps, the bells, and the grinding noise that made the ship's timbers shiver. He had counted the bells, as one does lying next to a chiming clock. He might possibly have missed one or two. He wondered how Captain Padstowe was coping; Dr Maturin would feel hmself back at home, noises and smells and motion all familiar and welcome.

When he heard voices in the wardroom he emerged, unsure of the time, to find officers up, dressed and drinking coffee. He accepted a cup, and retreated to the cabin, sitting on a chair and watching the surface of the liquid slide, not quite in time with the cabin itself. Calls, and whistles, and a thundering of more feet - not, he thought, the right time to show himself outside the cabin.

(come from here, early dismissed! sickbay )

While some were asleep, some awake and some already on their way the former midshipman had arrived earlier on deck than he'd expected. The surgeon dressed his bruise, had a short talk and then, saying he did not need him, he sent him to meet lieutenant Leat.

He held his head a bit lower and moved quickly past the sailors, lifting his gaze only to see if the lieutenant was already in sight. He still mulled over about what he'd been told. His grog ration was stopped. Why such a cruel punishment?

"Sir." He saw the lieutenant at last. He hoped he'd been seen. The temptation to hide away for a short while before going to duty was overrun by the genuine want to show that he could do what was right, as much as he disliked it.

Leat turned, his gaze immediately drawn to the eye patch before rteurning to De Guarde's face in general.

"So, Mr. Crozier did not have a use for you, did he? Well, that is quite a relief, as I have one for you."

The wind slackened briefly and the lieutenant's gaze lifted automatically to the sails; but George was already calling out the slight adjustment required.

"I hear from the General's groom that you have been spending a lot of your spare time down with the horses in the hold. Since you are happy to spend time with them, I thought you would be happier to tend to their comfort. You are responsible for mucking them out for the week - starting from now."

The eye that was uncovered widened at the lieutenant's words. "...muck them out sir....."He began. He had been with the horses yes, but he had not considered to do more but to brush their fur sometimes or shoo sailors away.

"...What... exactly falls under.. that order, sir?" He asked and hoped beyond all hopes it was not what he'd imagined it to mean. He was not protesting, though he'd wished to.

Leat gave De Guarde a very fixed stare.

"What falls under that order, De Guarde, is what falls under the horses," he said flatly. "You clear out their stalls, chuck the waste over the side and put in fresh straw."

"Yes.. sir." He lowered his gaze. He hated this, being a tar and being punished for something, when nobody had even proven that they've done it. Punished and humiliated with his slops up in the mast and himself as bare as the day he was born.

And still he had to hear of it.

"...Anything else sir?" Could he be then excused, was there anything more the lieutenant wanted.

"..Yes , sir." He saluted sharply :"..Thank you , sir." He turned on his heel and since his assignment did mean that he were exempt of other work till the lieutenant thought different, he made his way below, past the other sailors and men, noting the marines. He steadied himself down the companionway, careful not to fall his blind eye leaving him to rely on the feeling of his hand as well as on the other that was well.

Muck under the horses. He frowned. That was a dirty, filthy, smelly job. But he would do it. And do it right and proper, better perhaps, just to prove to Leat that he could do a well enough job and that he didn't deserve that punishment either.

(He heads here.)
