This is how you find yourself at… wait. You were trying to head for the South of France and had visions of sunning yourself along the Côte d’Azur with a sparkling glass of rosé in your hand but is that… a city rising from the water?

Sure enough, his hat begins to fall from his skull as he saunters toward the ship and his grin feels a whole lot less cocky without the skin on it.
