Example text

S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, turned youngest commander in the United States Navy, and now, still polite and soft-spoken, plainly an officer on the fast track to the top. Except things morbid and unexpected happened one after another that day on the Buck Whittemore, and after that day, the only place Calmer Ottosson was going as far as the navy was concerned was back to wherever he came from, the sooner the better. And which accounts, indirectly, for how he became Spooner’s father. FIVE Calmer Ottosson had not received the coffin containing Rudolph Toebox gladly.

He was watching her when the casket hit the water, and saw no flinch at the sound, no reaction at all, and saw that she would hold together. Like women of the prairie from the very beginning of the prairie, who buried their husbands and stood their ground. Mrs. Toebox was no faint heart. The officer who had nodded to the enlisted man who released the coffin now called the honor guard to attention: by naval regulations, a three-gun salute. “Ready,” he said. Calmer leaned closer to her and for a moment felt her hair blow against his lips.

He closed the door behind him, hoping to borrow another hour against the moment the coffin had to be untied and brought back up on deck. He found his body singing with optimism. The box would hold—it should hold—although the pallbearers would have to carry it on their shoulders now because one of the railings had broken off the side and would never support the weight of the full casket. It could be done, though. He’d lifted the body and gotten it back into the box alone; six men could get it up onto their shoulders.
