Out here I have found freedom at last, freedom from Jones and from the old me. I have started to become the person I always wanted to be and found happiness. I have tasted it and now nothing can ever make me go back. Nothing you can say will ever change my mind. It's not my mind that needs changing.

You thought you had a son before but you never did, and now you're going to have a daughter instead. Maybe not right away, physically, but one day.

"He gave us the ship back!" Deire said in a voice bordering on tears. "Heart o' gold you have, Boss, heart o' gold!"

Tim just smiled modestly.

"What the heck." He quipped, half joking. He didn't have a use for it anymore. What else should he have done? Sell Deire his own ship back? It's not as if he really needed the money.
