Then go down and get your rest. ” Will had dozed off. The cry from the watch policeman, “Seven bells and all’s well,” roused him from his slumber. 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.
When he came around the captain’s cabin, he saw another boy, perhaps a year or two older, sitting on the deck, a basket of rope next to him. Will inched closer. The boy looked up at him and grinned a gap-toothed smile. His face was sunburned, and brown freckles dotted his pug nose. “Have a seat,” he said, patting the deck next to him. “You must be the new boy. ” Will asked. ” “A ship’s a small place,” Jack answered. ” Will ﬂinched. “I didn’t expect Mr. Mattison to tell everyone,” he said stiffly.
Will groaned. If it had been anyone else but Epp, he would have begged a bit of food. But there was something sly and unpleasant about the one-eyed sailor, and Will would not let him see how miserable he was. He went down to the forecastle and sat on his hammock, looking at his raw, red hands. The other men paid no attention to him, and he had too much pride to ask for help. He tore strips of cloth from his old shirt and wrapped them around his hands. Although the shirt was grimy, at least the boy could bind the blisters and give them a chance to heal.
