He jumped from his hammock, dragged on his clothes, and ran to the galley. Despite his hurry he found himself at the back of the line because every seaman who came in after him pushed the boy aside and crowded in front of him. Will rocked impatiently from foot to foot, holding his metal plate in his hand, hoping the food would be good and that there would be enough for him.
