Merle builds a little port on Bottlenose Cove, all by himself. It’s not right next to his manor, it’s actually a little walk down the beach in a quieter area. Every day, he goes out and he sits on it, and he brings a deck of cards and a little table with him, and he sets it all up just like the two of them did on the Starblaster.
And he waits.
And he looks over those postcards, and he reads those three words, and he waits, everyday, and he hopes. Because he knows that one day, eventually, that’s where his old friend will dock his ship for a while.
