    Summary

    Summary: Christmas evening aboard Surprise, somewhere in the Indian Ocean, from the Captain’s steward’s POV. This is set on the same day as El Pessebre de Nadal and Ophelia’s Début and follows on directly from the latter, but there is no need to have read either of them.

    Many thanks to my heroic betas, alltoseek and feroxargentea, who together helped me translate my English into that of Preserved Killick, corrected errors and made many helpful suggestions. The title is alltoseek Killick’s perfect rendition of the working title, Envoi.
