At the stern was a galley, engine compartment, and different rooms. There he lived and worked as a crew. Shreve could not hide there. The upper deck was a large game room with roulette tables and card games. It was also one large room with several alcoves for poker. Noise and laughter that emanated from there, Miranda realized that the game was in full swing. The only place on the ship where the wounded man was free to hide, was the upper deck, where there were eight separate cabins, designed for all sorts of pleasant entertainment. One of them took Sheila Tyrone, and was near the cabin Ada Cox. Shreve, probably tried to get to one of them. But possibly it failed. Maybe now he lay bleeding to death in some empty cabin, absolutely helpless.
