I could tell he was up to something on the way back to port. It's still impossible not to notice
that little smirk of his when he's trying hide something, or when he's amused. Then again, it might also
signal when he's just anxious to get rid of me and let things get back to normal.
Of course, 'normal' is a word that can never again be used for us after what we've been
through, like that first mission when it looked as if a good portion of the world would end without our assistance.
That's what Seaview, Harry, and I are all about. I don't sound too proud, do I? I suppose I do, and
I'm guessing there's another lecture from Human Resources in the works already for me about the dangers of an
over inflated ego.
But when I think back over all we've accomplished these past few years, well, I think it's going
to take a very long time for me to record them for this blog. Is that the correct term? I can't really say I'm all that keen
on this social media stuff. And it's not as if this retroactive 'journal' is visible to anyone but me or maybe Doc. After
all he's the one who ordered me to do this. Therapy, he calls it. It was just a couple of nightmares again!
If I have to write anything, shouldn't it be about them, and not my boss? And boss Harry still
is,though I will admit that ours has become more of a familial relationship, even though it has at times increased
the tension between us. I mean, wasn't easy when I was ordered to shoot him, even if he was a walking
cessium bomb. And it couldn't have been easy for him when he had to shoot me to save the boat and allow the ghostly Krueger
to possess me. Is there any wonder I still have nightmares about these things and more?
I wonder if the shrinks have considered making Harry write a blog about me? Perish the thought!
He'd probably tell all sorts of ribald stories from when I served with him aboard Nautilus!Hey, I was only an Ensign.
A guy's allowed to make a few tactical errors regarding the base commander's daughter!
Oh well, at least I got page one done. You happy now Doc?
