The little man knelt at his feet.

He was an older man, with deft hands, and years of skill. The man's voice was carefully refined, but just a little muffled by his position. He had a bald spot.

Horatio could feel the man's hands on him. It had to be this way, of course. He had forgotten, in his excitement.

Horatio stood easy, thinking of quarterdecks. His head was swimming.. He wanted to look. He resisted looking.

The older man looked up. He rested his hands on his knees.

“ All done. I think the pinch-beck looks just fine, Sir.”

How cute is that !

and wicked Egalntine playing :)

a neat little moment - and so you !

And makes me think of those scenes - Proud Horatio at the naval tailors- ( in his first biography,Ned was reported as always offering newly raised lieutenants the advanced money to get their uniform in honour of the tailor who had given him his on credit)
Poor Ned receiving orders from Lord Hood he knows to be at best dangerous, and some poor admiralty lieutenant losing his life in a London alleyway ...to say nothing of soon having the excuse for screencaps of that marvellous lascivious expression on Archie's face when his boy gets back looking so point device
