Welcome back to our second chapter, where, for the time being, we will be keeping the company of “the ferocious fire-eater”, Dallas. She was introduced in one of the earliest pages of chapter one, where she mainly served to dazzle and enthrall our friend Riley, and the goings-on of the rest of the chapter had very little impact on her – or did they? It’s a big ship, and it’s home to many people with strangely interwoven lives. I am sure we’ll get to that in the fulness of time.

Or maybe it’s all a coincidence, and maybe Rudy just very rightly wanted to show off the scenic night-life on board the ship! Either way, I think drinks are in order.

Check back soon!
