I love reading (and rereading) this. You can feel Malcolm relaxing as it progresses - from that startled awake "Am I needed on the bridge?" to his sleepy "G'night."
I also really like the way Jon engages all of his other senses as they lie together in the darkness.
And the ending - lovely thoughts. Thank you for this!
