A Captain’s Duty

Kit was awake. It was the middle of the night. He didn’t even know what had awakened him. He heard a chime at his door and frowned. “Come in,” he said.

Ryan entered, sniffling softly. The youngster was visibly upset. Sorry to disturb you, Captain,” he said. For a moment, Kit thought he might burst into tears. Instead, he said, “I had a nightmare and – and I don’t know anyone else yet…”

He could imagine what the nightmare was about. The idea of a crewmember coming to the captain for such a thing… he supposed he was the father-figure, though.
