Notes: Line from "Woman Who Rides Like a Man" by Tamora Pierce. I read this line and just HAD to use it for Rodney. Tweaked a bit.


Shifting his gaze away from the couple that had lately developed, Henry turned from the scene to leave the sunshine on deck for the darker corridors inside. Once there, he let out a sigh of relief.

"All right there, doc?"

Henry jumped.

"Y-Yes. I'm...fine," he stuttered.

"Love birds getting to you?" Rodney asked.

Henry didn't answer. He took that as a yes.

"You know...There are plenty more fish in the sea than Mina, and this particular fish loves you with all his crooked heart."

The doctor's head snapped up, but the thief had disappeared with a stolen kiss.
