Once the engine started up, the rocking of the boat evened out a little, making it easier for Petra to stand without swaying. All the same, she leaned backwards slightly into Ross's hold, comforted by his warmth and solidity of his body at her back. His hands moved hers to the wheel, and though he tried to hide it she was aware of his hands briefly trembling as he held hers lightly. Since he couldn't really see her face, standing as they were, she smiled to herself. Of all the boys she could make feel nervous, she hadn't expected Ross McCulloch to be one of them, but it was exhilarating all the same.

"We er just goin' out father inta the water for a good view of the sunset. But we may want ta keep the tower in view. Aye don' have the best navigational skills."

"Okay." Petra kept the wheel steady, her touch light, and guided the boat out further on the water. When Ross moved away from her, leaning back, she sensed his absence, and turned back for a moment to look at him, for unspoken confirmation that she was doing fine.

It wasn't long before they were well out on the water, though the academy remained visible behind them. Judging it safe enough to take her eyes off the boat for a moment, she glanced upwards, squinting against the glare of the setting sun.
