(the first noises heard are several popping noises and light piano music)
This is captain Bindusara Cidel of the Avariel attempting my second recording.
It's late. Not quite sure of the time as Bob ran into the clock today, just after I got the altimeter fixed. Gives me something else for my to do list. Bob has shut down for the evening on his part of the ship, shortly after bringing me egg drop soup (of which he makes a damn fine one) and a nightcap. Some kind of spiced rum with a hint of cherry I believe. Something that we have had stored in the back forever.
Today was quiet, perfect in some ways. I had time to work on a couple steamjack designs that I have had in the back of my head forever, not that there is much use for them right now with no real wars going on. Dragon attacks seem to be on the decline and I wonder if that is a good thing. Check and balances of nature and all. Aside from that I had time to clean my Luger, shes been a bit neglected since I last used her. Bob needed a couple small repairs himself. He's not a bad kid, I mean I DID build him myself and all. He's just a little, excited about life I guess. Closest thing I have ever seen to any kind of bot, jack, hell anything mechanical think for its self. He has a childish way he goes about things, rolling to and fro on the ship. Poor kid gets very little interaction with the outside world, and when he can he forgets that I am the only person that can understand him. Sometimes I think it's better that way.
(the sound of metal and flint can be heard along with the crackling of paper freshly lit, and a deep breath)
The stars are beautiful tonight, the sky is clear and free. It's nights like these that remind me why I took to the skys in the first place. I just remember those days...
(silence is held here for a minute, only the occasion puff breaks the near constant nothingness)
It's a good night. Tomorrow we will touch down at a local city and restock on supplies and see if there is any work for us. Until then, this is captain Bindusara Sebastian Cidel of the airship Avariel, signing off.
