[TACKLES HIM TO THE GROUND.]
DON’T MAKE ME GET MY LAWYE—
… Sea? Is that you?
Aye! ‘Tis indeed!
Oh, bloody ‘ell where’ve you been?
I’ve been very, very busy! Like, really busy.
Drowning in paperwork and the like, I still am drowning in paperwork at the moment
because mother won’t do hers so I have to do it myself.
How have you been though? It’s been such a long time since I’ve seen you or anyone else lately.
Well, it’ll only take a rough meter or so’s worff of papers to drown you in, right, y’know! “Drownin’ in work” ain’t much t’say for you!
[ Regardless, he crawls off the poor boy and pulls him to his feet
whether he wants the help or not.]
… An’ I’ve such a tale, tha’ I’ve nowhere to begin!
[—Oof! He’s helped up to his feet and begins to dust himself off again and arranges his hair in the certain matter in which he always does.]
Drowning in work is a lot to say for me, thank you very much! I’m short, so I sink faster, you know.
[Shao begins to dust himself off again and for some reason, sits cross-legged at Sea’s feet.]
So in that case, tell me of your ‘tale’. Start anywhere you like— did you get to go on that adventure to space in your ship?
