The Azarnian boy woke rather late in the morning, understandable with how late he had gone to bed. Mudan stretched, wincing at his sore muscles. Many of his cuts were sore and tender, though the ones that Ursula had tended to weren't as bad. He smirked a little at the thought of Ursula. He had dreamt of her just before waking, but it wasn't the sort of dream he would be telling her about.

After a few moments of relaxing, Mudan climbed out of bed. He was surprised no one woke him. Perhaps he wasn't needed yet. At least it gave him a full night's sleep after a day filled with battles and labor.

He needed a new shirt, so he rummaged in a nearby footlocker that probably belonged to the sailors who shared the bunk before the ship was taken. It had plenty of clothes, and he took a shirt that was much like his own. He also found a bottle of whiskey tucked in the corner of the footlocker. "Nice," he said with a smirk.

He shoved all his belongings that he wasn't using into the locker, including his loot from the pirates killed last night. One of the things he looted was another saber, which he belted on along with his own.

OOC: If anyone else wants to get up, now's the time to post for it. Tatia and Kreoss are still on deck probably. If your character was awake earlier, post another thread on deck. Keep the two locations seperate.

Lilly woke in her bed. Her leg still stung from the encounter last night, but the stitchings held throughout the night and her leg was at least moveable now. She carefully stood and tested her leg out Although suffering from a minor limp, her movements were not inhibited. Frim her room she moved to the galley to begin the preperations for the breakfast.

Terelyn was sitting in the galley by the time Lilly had woken. Sleep came hard for her, considering the pain in her side. She woke up before most and spent her time drawing. For the last few years, she had been working on her skills as a ship's engineer. Unusually enough, the ship they stole was missing the blueprints. So, without the maker's own, Terelyn was left to draw them herself. The day before, she had wandered the boat, making notes and measurements. Now, it was only a matter of drawing it out based on that and her knowledge of the ship style. They wouldn't be perfect, but they didn't have to be. They were only for reference.

Lilly found her at the table with a latern sitting in the corner of her workspace. Various drawings of different ships were spread out before her. The tools of her trade were strewn in the sea of paper: a straight-edge, a compass, wooden shape templates. The ship's second didn't look up at her entrance, seemingly engrossed in creating a perfect line.

"Preferences for breakfast?" Lilly asked, walking past Terelyn towards the kitchen. "I'm sorry for last night." She said shortly before busying herself doing the dishes from last night.

"Don't apologize like that," Terelyn groaned out, looking up. Lilly didn't seem to understand anything. Did she really need to spell out how to operate as a female on a pirate ship? It took her years to gain the respect she had at the same level of a man and she had to work twice as hard to get it. Lilly seemed to think that being womanly was a good thing to be on a ship. It wasn't. The second in command shook her head ruefully before looking back down to her drawings.

Slowly Varun raised his head, waking to the sounds of movement around him from others getting up and moving above deck and below deck. Getting up he ran his fingers through his hair for a moment before moving to put on his gloves. "Another day upon the sea"

Moving his way into the galley he noticed that Lilly and Terelyn only giving them a brief nod before moving into the kitchen to see what was stocked since he doubt anything was ready for any of the crew from watching the order of things.

Malak made his way into the mess and sat across from Terelyn. With his back to Varun he addressed him. "Unless you plan on cooking for all of us, I'd mind yourself out of the kitchen area." Malak stated. "Did you sleep well?" He asked Terelyn.

"No, sir," Terelyn stated simply. She had nearly forgotten the "sir" altogether. Carefully, her fingertips slid the straight edge across it, almost as if to seek the next invisible line for her to follow. It didn't have any attitude or frustration. It was a recited fact. She rose too early, thought too much, turned on her wound too often. "Excuse me," she said, reaching in front of Malak and grabbing the only tool that was poking into his space and put it at her side.

"Hmph..." she puffed, looking at her drawing with a bit of displeasure. Terelyn tossed a few pages around in the book, looking for something...

"A pity." Malak groaned. "Sleep is rather important." he rubbed his aching eyes, the light topside had nearly blinded him. "After breakfast, the ship is yours, I'll relieve you around dusk."

"Yes, sir," Terelyn replied. She wasn't sure why it annoyed her to use the official tag she had been using for so long. But, it was one more unecessary necessity of work. She supposed it was unavoidable. Where is that food? Anything to get moving again would be nice.

"Drop the 'sir' Terelyn." Malak sighed. "I'm too damn tired and too sick of formalities to care whether people address me as 'captain' or 'sir', or even just as Malak. You're the first mate, you're not required to call me sir or captain. Think of yourself as my equal, the extension of my right arm, so to speak."

Terelyn looked up sharply. Her eyes stung as much as her fists did. "Excuse the attitude, sir, but I am not your equal and you would do well not to forget it." Her voice defined finality, as if she had command over him. It was the kind of voice one would expect her to use if she were the captain. His insistance in informality was another bad idea. There was a point to formalities: control. Any good captain would recognize that. Teaching the sailors that everyone was equal was a good way to have no real power and, thus, at the will of the group. Who wanted that?

"Excuse me, sir. I have to get to work..." she muttered in frustration. She didn't want to have an arguement with him, especially since she took a dagger for his little grouping of ships. That wasn't to even mention the fact that they had to work together. He wasn't a man she could simply put down with a well placed fist and walk away. I shouldn't have to maintain the basic set up of command for him! So, the annoyed first mate began to pack up her drawing things, not looking back at the only person on the ship who outranked her.

Malak grabbed Terelyn's arm as she tried to pull away. "Sit." he commanded. His eyes narrowed marginly as he kept his voice low. "There is a very good reason I told you to drop the formalities. As my first mate, I need you to be my eyes durring the day while I sleep. If you insist on the droll formalities of 'sir' everytime you finish a sentence, then that is your deal." He touched the table. "However, as a very polite request, we drop the sir at the dinner table." He gave her a wide smile, although his body language was far from sweet. "So, have a seat Terelyn. Enjoy your breakfast and report to my quarters after taking the proper measurements outside. I intend to shift our course out of the main traffic lane."

Bastard, she thought to herself as she placed all of her things back down on the table. If it had been anyone else, she would have swung at him. There was a reason for everything she did. That much, she wished he would realize. Encourage a lack of respect and you encourage a weakness in the command structure. It wasn't hard to understand. Terelyn did not return the smile. Now, he had kindly embarassed her in front of the lower shipmates, which was quite a blow to her ego. All she wanted to do was go to work. Before sitting down, she shook off his hand from her like a man would do.

Terelyn slumped back onto the bench, only to feel the stabbing pain of her wound. Her face swiftly grew rigid in its expression to attempt to hide her weakness. It relaxed again as she opened her work book and hid her face in it again.
