"Jamie Vallantdorf." Tim repeated.

"Yes, " Said Jamie, slowly and deliberately crossing his legs. "And one day it's going to be Jaymie, you know, with a 'y'."

Oh, gods! Tim thought in sudden shock. Not another one. How small is the fucking universe anyway? What was wrong with him? Why hadn't he made the obvious conclusion? Had two years with Dory blinded him to the signs? J – um, Jaymie smiled at him.

"Of course, you know, one or two things will change." He continued. "Or maybe three or four."

"Definitely three or four." Tim smiled back.

"Are you shocked, Captain?"

"Tim. Call me Tim." Said Tim. "I'm not the captain, I'm the owner. And no, not really. It explains a lot."

"Ever met somebody like me before? You aren't going to beat me up now, are you?"

"Yes and no." Smiled Tim. "As in no, I'm not going to beat you up, and yes, I have. Several times in fact."

"Shame, poor kid!" Said Vic empathically. The rest of them nodded in agreement. "And that …bastard!"

"Yeah!" Said Deire bluntly. "At least I was right 'bout one o'them! An' he looked a lot better the las' time ah saw 'im!"

"All flat and crispified!" Vic grinned vengefully.
