You know, deck stuff. You get your doctor stuff all set up, Doc?”
Jackson nodded. "Most of it, yeah. Didn't have much to set up, really." He took a long sip of the tea and smiled gratefully. "It's amazing what one can do with boiled leaf water," he commented.
Jackson watched, amused, as Serena accidentally threw a wet towel in the face of one of the guests. He nodded acknowledgement when the young girl introduced him to the pastor.
“A pleasure to meet you, I must say I admire the work of any medical professional.”
The doctor shrugged. "I don't suppose you've seen much of the medical profession up close, then," he said, a crooked half-smile cocked across his mouth. "It's only really admirable from a distance. Up close it'll be enough to make your stomach churn."
Then Jackson contentedly enjoyed the show of the various crewmates squabbling and playfully arguing (or not so playfully, in Jago's case).
