"OK, can do," Dee Dee says. Zack gives a nod of his head after a look from the Sheriff.

A few more minutes pass, and you start getting the sense of being watched. You're able to study your companions for a bit when the feeling first begins to come over you, and when you do, you see that Zack isn't really affected by whatever it is you're feeling, but Dee Dee occasionally glances towards the sky, and makes the occasional sweeping look behind her.

Then you hear the sounds of the vessel bearing the delivery as it begins its approach to the dock, and the feeling goes away. Docking is a procedure of 15 minutes or so from the time you first hear of the ship's approach. A hefty boom with cabling for a large winch stands near the stern, presumably directly over a cargo elevator. A gangplank lowers to the pier, and then Mick comes down by himself.

"Ah, you brought friends," he says, then breaks out in a grin and his eyes flick to Zack for an instant. "Your date seems a little on the hairy side."
