It’s become a habit on the ship to not disturb the captain and his quartermaster once they’ve retired to the captain’s quarters of an evening. The problem is, there are still things that need to be done on a ship at sail long into the night, and both Flint and Silver fucking know it. But Billy isn’t willing to do their work for them. So, as it turns out, once they’ve shut themselves away for the night, Billy’s the only one of the crew that’s willing to report to them about something that needs their attention.
This hasn’t been a problem because for a good long while, he would knock on the door and wait until hailed inside, and by that time they’d both be dressed and at least five feet from one another, and the three of them could have a mostly tension-free conversation and Billy would studiously ignore any flushed faces or bruised skin or disheveled or bulging clothing that would indicate what they might have been doing before he’d opened the door.
And when he settled in his bunk later, he would definitely not imagine what those scenarios might have looked like had he walked in a minute or two sooner.
