As promised Gene walked through the door by 17:00 as he'd promised Jenny for their last night together before the ship departed. He had promised it would be just the two of them and so as he entered their home through the front door, still in uniform, he called out to her.

"Jenny! I'm home," he said, walking to the steps and putting a foot up on the second step to unlace and remove his boots.

Jenny's head popped up from the sofa where she'd been napping. Her hair, which was still dyed a dark brown, was frizzy and falling in her face. "Dad?" Suddenly awake, she scrambled up and practically vaulted over the back of couch to greet him.

“Hey!” He said, her excitement to see him warmed his heart. “How was your day?”

Throwing her arms around her dad's neck, Jenny said, "Boring! Better now!" She hugged him tight and didn't let go.

He hugged tightly and sort of danced with her, "you ready for our big night?" he asked.

"What are we gonna do?"

"Well, I don't know... I thought we could stay in. Make some peanut butter and jelly. Maybe play some tic tac toe," he said, with a nod. Of course, he was kidding but he couldn't miss an opportunity to mess with his offspring.

"Tic tac toe?!" Jenny groaned.

"I thought we could take the Quid up to Nags Head for some dinner at Blue Moon... and see what the night brings us from there?" he suggested. It was only about an hour by water to where they'd be eating dinner a place that they both loved and how could you not love sailing? Plus he knew that she was proud of the fact that she was the only person besides himself who'd ever taken the helm of his beloved Quiddity.

A grin broke out across his daughter's face and she squealed, "Yes!" She was already trying to decide whether she'd get a shrimp burger or fish tacos. Definitely fried green tomatoes. "Just the two of us?"

"Isn't that what I promised?" he asked, with a smile.

"Heck yeah, it is!" Jenny crowed. "I'm gonna go get ready now!"

"Alright, I need to shower first. I'll meet you down here in twenty."
