A silver utensil is being tapped repeatedly on the surface of a glass goblet. And the clanging sound reverberates all around the cabin, gradually appeasing the little commotion.
"This is your Captain Joshua speaking...!" Joshua introduced himself with a grin before placing the items back on the table, a look of contentment splattered across his expression.
"We have gathered here today to celebrate and congratulate every one of you for all the efforts and dedication that you have done on this fleet! That despite those tragic years of patience and frustrations, we can safely assume that our sacrifices were paid off! That everything was worth the wait because our vessel, the S.S. Cassian, would finally be sailing again!"
"Cassian?" Hugo blurted out and tilted his head quizzically.
"It's Cass for Cassidy, and Ian for Adrian, bro."

The four of them decided to stay in their cabin after eating lunch together. The adults are still out there somewhere, and in their absence, the children have come up with the idea of holding this discussion.

"Admiral Damien, the floor is yours now," Joshua said for the last time before stepping aside for the next speaker to take the spotlight.
