Though being active duty in the royal navy makes it difficult for Jim to visit the old Benbow with as much frequency as he likes, he makes sure to pop in, even if briefly, every three or four months to check on his mother. The best times were always when Silver appeared as well, the old cyborg coming in to port on Montressor to stay for a week or so at a time, playing catch up with the Hawkinses and assuring Jim and his mother that he was alright (something that the younger man worried over often–despite receiving the Queen’s pardon, Silver had a remaining tendency to roam in less-than-savoury places). Some of Jim’s most favourite memories were mornings spent around the breakfast table, laughing and telling jokes while his mother pottered back and forth from the kitchen, Silver inevitably trying to charm her into taking a break from being a good hostess for once in her life and to sit down with them. These were the times when everything was alright, Silver was safe, Jim was home, and they were a family.
