Aidan: Set Sail

   "Everything is on board?" I asked Shea, he nodded. "Yes," he said, "I think you should talk to more people, perhaps," I looked down at the floor and sighed.

All the sailors were throwing the ropes, that kept the ship down, up on deck. Shannon walked up to me, slowly.

"Hello, Aidan? Is it?" she asked. You'd think that the captain's wife would know who he hired.

"Yes. That is my name." I looked away from her. She was quite pretty though, I doubt anyone would say otherwise.

"Is that your real name? Or a-" "It is my real name." I cut her off, I didn't want to hear what she had to say. "How'd you get it?" That's a weird question. I sighed.

"When they found me, I was only a few months old. They called me Aidan because I never cried and they thought I was a boy. Until, and I quote from Them, they changed my first diaper." I had to smile at that.

"Ah, I see the mercs have a sense of humor?" She smiled at me. She is the second person to smile at me.
