Time is a fickle beast. When one's on watch, time seems endless and slow. When one's on leave, however, time seems to fly by. Then there are times when a friend, a brother-in-arms, is injured. Then, time moves too slowly and too quickly, as if it cannot make up its mind as to which it wants to do. This is one such instance. William had been injured during an action and is being tended to by Dr Maturin. Tom has complete faith in the doctor's abilities, but he cannot help worrying. He doesn't know what he'd do without William Mowett.
