In the immediate aftermath of the shooting Mortimer had had no time to contemplate his actions for they had all come under a hail of bullets and his first concern was for his captain’s safety as they ducked for cover.

Later, he had felt sick; had felt nothing but utter revulsion for his own actions especially when he had learnt that the other had died, the doctor’s words of wisdom notwithstanding.

Now, as he watched his captain at the bow, their eyes met.

Thomas Mortimer knew that, no matter the emotional cost, he would always be by this man’s side.
