I knock on the door to the bridge, and enter without waiting for an answer.

"Excuse me sir, I'm sure you heard of our little problem. Do you have an idea as to what to do about it?"

Yes, yes, I've been doing some thinking about this horrible thing. I can't have this blemish on my record, I've decided to declare martial law. We'll handle all of this ourselves. No need to tell anyone outside of the ship. We are not going back to port either. These people paid for a cruise and they'll get one. Also, toss that nasty corpse overboard too, no sense taking up space and risk a rotting body.


Reluctantly, the Purser agreed, after all, the Captain is the master of the ship. They left together so the Captain could make his announcement.


People had gathered for the Bingo game. The Cruise Director introduced the Captain. His speech was also carried through out the ship on the loudspeaker. It would also be played on the TV throughout the day for anyone who was sleeping. Passenger and crew alike were in attendance.

Well, as most of you know, we had an unfortunate incident last night. I assure you that we are investigating the events and will find the person who did this horrible thing. So as not to delay your cruise, we are now under Martial Law of the Seas. We must find this killer and toss them overboard! The murderer must die !! +

Cheers rang out as he talked. The killer would be caught and they could still have fun at sea.


We will take a vote on who you think killed poor Vivec. That seems to be the most diplomatic way. In one day (24 hours) that person will be tossed overboard and we will continue on with our trip. If you have reason to accuse someone, let it be known.


Alright, thank you Captain, now who's ready to play Bingo? Buy your card here for a dollar.

I saw the Sericurty Guard walk away from me, "Is he trying to avoid me?" I followed him down to the Inkling deck, he was to far away to get his attention. He pushed his way past a crowd of people. "Hey security get back here, someone stole my records," I say as I get to the crowd. One of the passengers turns to me a says someone been murdered. "Great  ::)" I mutter under my breath I probably look like an arsehole right now, more so then usual. I try to look in the room and I see the Guard waving a bloody knife around. Is that a body? I try to get a better look but one of the ship employees shuts the door and tells us to clear out.

Someones dead! I catch the whiff of burnt duck in the air. That can't be right, can it. I smell again and realize that I smell pretty ripe. The crowd is breaking up. I go down to the hall back to my room and jump in the shower. "Great I'll probably never see my records back now."  >:(

After that I head back upstairs to the bar. This cruse is turning out just swell.
I need a new tag.

My thoughts had been interupted by the loudspeaker. The captains speach was worthless, such a pagan! 'Well, atleast now we have a chance to get rid of the murderer, or maybe that anoying photographer?', I thought to myself. "So guys, I have to go and do some... research. I want to know who did this so that noone innocent is hurt." I said as I stood up about to leave the bar to go back to my deck.

Crap crap crap crap, he thought as he rubbed his eyes awake. I did it again.

He got up from his bed and looked at the clock; 11:12, it said. He searched for his wallet and looked inside.

Only four dollars left, he thought. So much for using cash this vacation. I really need to be more careful.

He got dressed and looked for his camera.

I should delete these, but they're such good pictures.

Instead, he popped out the memory stick and put it his drawer, under his socks. He reached into his camera bag and got out another memory stick and slid it into the slot.

Now to do something to keep my mind off last night.

He grabbed his wallet, stuck it into his pocket, and walked out the door. He headed to the dining room to have some lunch.

No sense in having breakfast now, he thought.

He walked into the dining room and took a seat. He noticed that the room was nearly devoid of patrons. When the waitress came over to take his order he asked, "Where is everybody?"

She went rigid for a second then replied, "Didn't you hear? There was... there was a murder last night." She was clearly not comfortable being the one delivering this cold news. He sat there for a second stunned, but before he could speak she added, "There was a meeting in the theater just before eleven, didn't you go?"

"No, I was still sleeping at the time."

"Oh," she said. Then after a long pause, "Well, are you ready to order?"

"Uh, yes," he said, "I'll have the cheeseburger."

Joining Oviraptor in the dining room for lunch was Great Distance. She wanted to see the art auction and then had a hair appointment at 4:00.


Rhodix was also having lunch, trying to keep his mind off of the events of today.


The art auction began on time.


Gec was there asking questions and he ended up bidding and buying a sports memorabilia picture. He proudly took it to his cabin so he could look at it for the rest of the trip.


The afternon went quickly and it was time for Slarti's hair appointment.

*The Captain is now taking votes on who the killer might be. Please vote for up to 3 people. You have 24 hours to place your vote and convince everyone on "who done it".*

Having left the bar to go off to work, I hussled around the dinning room helping the hungry passengers.

"Wine list please?"

"Yes one moment ma'am, I'll be right back with that."

I walk over and hand a plate to an increasingly impatient looking customer before hurring off to help the woman from the casino the night before.

After his awkward meal in the dining room, Ovi headed back to his room.

I don't feel like doing anything right now, he thought.

He flipped on the television to see what was on. It was the captain; he was talking about the murder. He leaned in closer to hear what he said.

"...find the person who did this horrible thing. So as not to delay your cruise, we are now under Martial Law of the Seas. We must find this killer and toss them overboard! The murderer must die!"

The audience cheered.

Wow, he thought, that seems a little extreme.

After the audience died down, the captain continued "We will take a vote on who you think killed poor Vivec. That seems to be the most diplomatic way. In one day (24 hours) that person will be tossed overboard and we will continue..."

"Thrown overboard..." he muttered aloud. He turned it off. This is going to get crazy real fast, he thought. Well, I better get ready now so I can take a few pictures on my way to the Cocktail party at four.

After all, he took his camera everywhere he went.

After a while at the bar I had some lunch and went to the art auction. There was nothing much there, nothing good anyway. I heard the Captain's speech over the speakers. Martial law sounded a bit extreme. I'm not even sure it's legal.

So much for a relaxing holiday...

Martial law? I thought, and then declares a vote?  Those are two ideas that don't fit no matter how I look at it, Captain must be off his rocker.  Or, I thought with sudden suspicion, a little too sane.  Lets face it, the captain had to be a little drunk after that rum, and he's got all the keys, including the one to the drink stock.  He gets liquored up, kills a man, and has the body thrown over before it can be investigated.  Hold a vote, some poor bastard gets thrown after the corpse, and ol' Cap' Hydro gets off scott free.  Still not enough to go on though, certainly not enough to risk my job.  I'll just have to check with the first mate at that party...
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.
