Morning brought with it a kiss from his husband, a lazy breakfast at the water-level restaurant, and all memory of the nightmare forgotten.

PLEASE NOTE: Starting from this chapter I will be changing the image-to-text ratio of my chapters. There will be more text and fewer images. Hopefully this will help me to update more frequently, since taking screenshots when your game is as cc-loaded and laggy as mine now is can be so daunting it puts you off even logging in to bother doing them!
Also, as a little side-note: Many of the happenings on the cruise ship in this chapter actually happened to me on my holiday to Egypt. The paddling boys and the t-shirt-throwing, the guys washing the car in the river, the little boys running along the river bank; all of them are written from memory.
