It took two more sets of hands to manage the safe up the gangway and into the cabin.  Rosemary followed behind, keeping a watchful eye, under the pretense of preparing the rooms for her mistresses.  They were richly appointed, but small for staterooms, and Lady Wilhelmina would likely be cross the whole trip.  The safe cluttered the space further, but there was no helping it.  The Wendigo Diamond was to be a gift for the queen, and nothing could be allowed to happen to it during the journey.  There had been so much tragedy surrounding the stone already, after all.
