"Roasted Hamonchee."

"Oh, so you remember that one, huh?" Smith grins. "I've definitely got enough for that."

Smith rummages in the pantry and refrigerator.

"Got the ham," he says as he holds up a slab of meat. "And I got the chee!"

He raises a slab of American Cheddar. He puts those on the counter and cuts thick slices of ham but thin slices of cheese. Then he brings out a short baguette and cuts it in half the long way. Smith puts the ham on a skillet then layers the cheese on the halves of baguette. He brings out the small cooking flamethrower to melt the cheese in a matter of seconds. He finishes the ham off with the same flamethrower, then slaps the slices on top of the cheese. Smith puts the top slice on top of the ham, and lets the cheese encase the ham.

"And here is your roasted hamonchee," he grins as he plates it.

"Just as I remember," you smile.

You blow on the sandwich to help cool it off. Then you get your hands around the baguette and take a big bite. You give Smith a thumbs up and he smiles and gives it back.

"So that new lady friend of yours," Smith says. "A real looker, that one, yeah?"

"Yes, definitely," you chuckle. "She was a hidden treasure living in California, and who knows, perhaps it was fate that led me to her."

"Well, well," Smith smiles. "Talking like that, you must be smitten."

"I'm far passed that," you say. "Other than missing the rings, Raven and I are basically engaged."

"Are you serious?" Smith says. "That's incredible! Wait, you don't have rings?"

"No, we were still going to wait," you say. "We both know we're still really young so we shouldn't make it public or anything for a long time."

"I see, I see."

Smith puts away the cheese and the ham and pours you a glass of water.

"Any requests for dinner in a few hours?" he asks.

A) Yes, please
B) No, Smith's choice is fine
C) Volunteer to make it

"Whatever you decide will be perfect," you say.

"Well alright then," Smith says. "I'll get started on a nice thick lasagna. I can use up what's left of this cheddar here, and some Parmesan, maybe some ricotta."

"A three cheese lasagna," you say. "That definitely sounds perfect."

"Thank you, thank you," he smiles.

Smith pulls out the pasta pan and the noodles and then the ground beef and begins the layering. He does the noodle base, then slices of cheddar cheese then meat then Parmesan then another noodle layer, and repeat.

"It looks good already," you say.

You finish eating your Hamonchee and wipe up with a napkin.

"Give me a holler when it's done," you say as Smith finishes layering.

"Will do, will do," Smith says as you get up.

You leave the dining hall behind to

A) Take a nap
B) Check on Raven
C) Take a look around the ship

Raven's already taking one so you don't have much else to do right now. You return to your room and lie down on the bed.

You wake up later, rather refreshed, and then see the clock says it's over two hours later. You really were tired after all you and the four Ravens did.

You stretch and get up out of bed. You freshen up with a splash of water in the bathroom sink and a quick brush of teeth. After that, you go to the hall and knock on Raven's door.

"Raven," you say. "Are you awake? Or even in there?"

"Yes," she replies. "Was just meditating."

"Oh, sorry for interrupting, then."

"No, it's fine," she says.

You hear her walking over, and she opens the door. She's wearing shorts and one of her Museum of Death T-shirts.

"So what did you do while I was napping?" she asks.

"I had a snack then took a nap of my own."

"Wow," she chuckles. "Really exciting."

"I know," you chuckle back. "My nap was good, how about yours?"

"Yeah, it was really good, actually," she says. "I'm not usually a nap taker, and certainly not on a boat, but this was nice."

"That's good to hear. Also, I hope you're in the mood for lasagna. I was talking with Smith, the chef, while snakcing, and lasagna was his decision for dinner."

"Yeah, lasagna's good. Do you think it's ready?"

"Well I told him to call for us when it was, and he hasn't done that yet. Chances are we still have some time left."

A) Suggest playing more cards
B) Suggest taking a quick tour of the ship
C) Suggest relaxing in the sun

"Let's take a quick look around before then."

"Okay."

You step aside for Raven to walk into the hall, and then walk together, Raven gently holding your hand as you go. The two of you return to the stairs, and decide to go up.

Deck 4 is of course the dining area, so you go past that to deck 3. This deck has a large home theater, small sitting areas along the side, and then a sunbathing deck on the bow, with its own hot tub.

"This is a pretty nice view," she says as she watches the ship cut through the water. "I mean, you can see the ocean and all that from the sides of the ship, but seeing it like this is unique."

You both return to the stairs to go up to deck 2, and while there is a lounge area with arm chairs and couches at the stern, the bow has another deck. This one looks to be an open air dining area, with the tables and booth seats. There's a special part on this deck that looks to perhaps be for stage performances, like from a band or theatre troupe or even a comedian. Surely Great-Aunt Radela has had such special guests on such cruises before.

The stairway you return to doesn't have a way up to the very top deck. Those stairs must be inside the enclosed area here, which looks to be a collection of special suites, like entire apartments on a ship. You wonder why Great-Aunt Radela didn't put you up in these...

Raven leads the way back down, all the way to Deck 6. This area has a gym and a spa. You might want to try these two spots before the cruise is over. It also has lifeboats attached to the sides, and you hope not to need those. You go down to deck 7, and this deck has a larger swimming pool and the accompanying deck and chairs, and even some lounge couches for truly luxurious sunbathing.

"Maybe we'll take a dip in this later," you say as you look out over the railing.

You look down and see what bit of deck 8 there is to be seen, it has yet another sunbathing area with chairs and couches. There's a folded set of stairs that surely drops into the water. That's for when the ship is stationary and passengers want to take a dip in the ocean's salt water.

"Or even use that," you say as you motion to it.

A) Return to deck 4
B) Return to deck 3
C) Return to deck 5

"Let's return to deck 3. I want to see what the home theater offers."

Raven takes your hand again as you return to the stairs. You both go up and return to deck 3. You lead the way into the home theater, and see there is a popcorn machine with plenty of kernels. But with dinner so close, you leave that alone.

The chairs are just like from a real theater, with lush cushions and big arms that have cup holders. There are a few rows, nothing too much. The screen looks to be the entire wall, aside from a thin margin around the outside.

You look and see a device in the back. Instead of this being a projector and screen, it is a television screen with this media player. On the wall with the media player, there are shelves upon shelves of movies, all in BluRay DVD form, even some very old classics.

"Do you think we'll have time to watch a movie?" Raven asks as she looks up and down the shelves; she's surely looking for horror movies.

A) Yes, if it's not horror
B) No, watch a movie after dinner

"No, let's worry about that after dinner," you say. "But you can go ahead and choose something to watch now if you'd like."

"Hmm... In that case, let's try..."

Raven goes to a shelf and pulls out a box.

"28 Days Later," you say. "That's a zombie movie, right?"

"Yep," she says as she sets it on the media player.

"Well alright," you say. "Something to look forward to..."

She rolls her eyes with a smirk and chuckle as she leads you out of the home theater. You then go to deck 4 and the dining hall. You and Raven go to a table for two, and you help her with her seat. A moment later, Smith walks over and gives a little bow.

"Welcome back, sir and miss," he says. "The lasagna is almost ready, but I have prepared some nice buttery garlic bread to start you off."

"Sounds great," you say. "What is there to drink?"

"Well, with pastas and the like, with the tomato and cheese," Smith says, "I suggest something in the fruit juices family. Perhaps grape juice, apple juice, lemonade, or a blend of fruit punch."

"Lemonade sounds nice," Raven says.

"Lemonades it'll be, then," you say.

"Two tall glasses of lemonade and a healthy serving of garlic bread, coming right up," Smith says.

Smith takes another quick little bow before going back to the kitchen.

"So I've been meaning to ask," Raven says. "If your great-aunt's side of the family was cut off, do you know your cousins from her side at all?"

"We spent some early years together," you say. "But we only got to know each other for that time, so they could be like completely different people now."

"What do you remember about them?" she asks.

A) Start with Jonas
B) Start with Phineas
C) Start with Nella

"Phineas, the middle born child but youngest son, is a few years older than I am. He should be about 22 now, so Oleisia must not be much older."

"If I'm remembering my Greek right, 'Oleisia' means 'Protector of men'," Raven says. "I wonder she's the bolder of the two."

"Well, as Great-Aunt Radella herself said, Phineas was very shy. He was timid and quiet, but kind and reasonable. He's bookish and smart, as well, and preferred a good book over sports."

"What kinds of stories did he like?" Raven asks.

"He liked many kinds," you say. "His favorites were stories in space, with aliens and futuristic technology, since they were so different from our world of magic."

"So is he a big fan of Star Trek or Star Wars?"

"I believe so," you say. "Perhaps more Star Trek because it's less reliant on things like The Force."

"Interesting," Raven says. "So, what are the ages of the other two if he's the middle child at 22?"

"Jonas is 25," Radella says as she walks over. "Nella is 16 and loving it."

"Good evening, Great Aunt," you say as you and Raven get up to greet her.

"Good evening," Radella says. "Please, don't get up on my account. I'll let you two enjoy your time, I'll be over here."

"Well, actually," Raven says, "while you're here, I was hoping you'd tell us both how the Null-Xenos side of the family has been."

"Oh? Where would you like to start?"

A) How Jonas, Phineas and Nella are like now
B) The full Null-Xenos family tree

"How are Jonas, Phineas and Nella?" you ask. "It has been a long time."

"Well, Phineas is as you were saying," she says as she borrows a seat from another table. "He's still very much the quiet, bookish type. But now that he has his wife and his child, he does get out more."

"That's good to hear," you smile.

"Jonas is still a great athlete," she continues. "He's become a great swimmer living out in Greece. Al jokes that Jonas is blessed by Poseidon himself. Jonas loves competing around the country, the continent and hopes to even make it to the world level."

"That's great!" you say. "How many medals has he won?"

"Oh, he has an entire display case for those," Radella chuckles. "It's definitely in the thirties, with golds nearing the majority."

"Wow!" Raven says.

"Is he trying for the Olympic team?" you ask.

"Oh yes, that's his dream," Radella says. "He's going to give it another shot very soon, but he's helping with the family first."

"Right, your husband, Alessandro, retired," Raven says.

"Yes, he finally admitted he's as old as he is," Radella says with a little laugh. "Jonas's swim skills have been a nice help with nets and traps and things like that, but his mother wants him to take it easy for the sake of his swimming career."

"That makes sense," you say.

"As for Nella," Radella continues, "she is enjoying high school. She hasn't really chosen a career path, but she loves to swim like her brother. Of course, she also enjoys general fitness for the sake of staying in shape."

"So she's not thinking about being a professional athlete?" you ask.

"Not particularly," Radella says. "But who knows, she might think to try it."

A) Ask more about Nella
B) Ask about Phineas' son, Basil

"What else has Nella been up to?" you ask. "Are her studies going well? She always seemed too energetic to sit still for lessons."

"She's managed," Radella says. "At the very least, she's not in danger of failing or being held back. She doesn't have a stand-out subject, but she enjoys science most with all the experiments and such."

"That's good that she's doing well," you say.

"What about socially?" Raven asks. "And her personality?"

"Oh she has many friends," Radella says. "She's not stuck up or anything, but she is a bit flighty, like her mind goes to places and then it doesn't return until after she's late to do something."

"Oh no," Raven giggles. "Has she ever gotten in trouble for that?"

"Every once in awhile," Radella says. "But thankfully never anything so crucial. She's much better at doing important things when she's meant to."

"One would hope so," you note.

A) Ask about Basil
B) Ask about extended family
C) Leave it at this for now

"What is young Basil like?" you ask. "The first great grandchild of this generation, I'm sure he's being spoiled by you and his grandparents."

"Oh yes," Radella laughs. "I've personally gotten him so many things. Little socks, little shoes, a little hat, such little cute things, and he looks so darling in it all."

Radella pulls out her phone and shows you both a picture.

"Awww~!" Raven says as she sees the toddler wearing the blue and khaki outfit. "His curly hair and those chubby cheeks!"

You're both surprised but amused by how Raven gushes over your admittedly adorable second cousin once removed.

"What?" she asks with a smile as she notices you looking at her.

"Nothing," you chuckle.

"Which parent does he take after?" Raven asks.

"He's showing signs of being more like Phineas than Oleisia. He is quiet and shy, and he has a favorite book about a monkey that he loves to read over and over. Though perhaps he just likes the artwork of the adorable little monkey."

"Aw that's cute," Raven says.

"I'm sure the family has been on this ship at least once, yes?" you ask.

"Oh of course," Radella says. "They have the suites on the upper deck rented out as theirs."

"Well that explains that," you say.

"Well sorry that you're not in one of those," Radella says. "But they travel with me on this ship much more often."

"Here you are," Smith says as he finally returns. "Lemonades and garlic bread."

He places the basket down, then puts a drink in front of Raven and you, in that order.

"Thank you, Smith," you say.

"While the lasagna has yet to be served, would you like to make a dessert request now?" he asks.

A) Yes
B) No

"Certainly," you say. "Perhaps a platter of lokma, with plenty of cinnamon or powdered shugar."

"A good choice, sir, a good choice," Smith says. "I will prepare those as soon as the lasagna is served."

Smith takes a quick bow and returns to the kitchen.

"Well I'll let you two eat alone as I said," Radella says. "I'll be over here."

Radella moves over a table, and you take a bite of garlic bread. You enjoy the crisp crunchy crust and flakey, buttery bread. Raven also enjoys a piece of garlic bread.

"The lemonade is nice, too," Raven says after using it to wash down the garlic.

You nod as you wipe your lips with the cloth napkin.

"Yes, it definitely has that lip-puckering sour sweetness," you say.

"Here we are," Smith says as he returns. "Two healthy servings of my cheddar and Parmesan lasagna."

"Cheddar, huh?" Raven says. "I don't know if I've ever had lasagna made with that."

"It certainly smells delicious," you say as you pick up your fork.

You stab into the lasagna and enjoy looking at the gooey American cheese stretch into strings as you pull the flat noodles apart. You scoop it up and pop it into your mouth, and enjoy the unique blend the cheddar provides.

"I like this," you say.

"Me, too," Raven says.

"Combined with the ground beef, it's almost like the lasagna is part cheeseburger," you note.

"Perhaps we should call it that," Smith says. "The cheeseburger lasagna. The lokma are almost ready, by the way. They're frying as we speak, and then they'll just need to cool enough for me to sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on them."

A) Have them in the dining hall
B) Have them to go so you can eat them while watching the movie
