Starbuck walked into Captain Ahab's cabin.
"Captain, I want to have a talk with you."
"ZZZzzzZZZ…" Ahab was sleeping.
Ahab just kept on sleeping.
Starbuck started to walk around Ahab's cabin. This was a perfect opportunity to see what Ahab kept hidden. Who knows what he could be hiding!
Starbuck's eyes got caught on a gun in the rack. He picked it up. It was fully loaded.
He looked at Ahab. Then at the gun. Then at Ahab again.
Everybody knew Starbuck didn't like Ahab, or Old Thunder, as some people called him.
He started weighing the consequences in his mind. Should he do it? Should he REALLY do it?
