The skipper and Mr. Jukes want to see you in the captains cabin, he said.
Jukes, straddling his long legs like a pair of compasses, put on an air of superiority.
At the sound of Jukes' voice he stood still, facing forward, but made no reply.
A dull conviction seized upon Jukes that there was nothing to be done.
It was Jukes Dade, the man her father had peremptorily discharged.
Sometimes Jukes would break in, admonishing hastily: "Look out, sir!"
Jukes on coming out of the alleyway found himself up to the neck in the noisy water.
In the dark, Jukes, unsteady on his legs, listened to a faint thunderous patter.
Then Jukes was directed in the same subdued voice to keep the forward 'tween-deck clear of cargo.
He and Jukes looked at each other, and the same thought came into their heads.
