Sailors took a Chinese national flag from a drawer and rushed out of the navigation bridge to display it to the warship. It sailed to our ship's stern and escorted us for a little while before disappearing over the horizon.

"We wish you a safe journey!" the warship said via the channel.

"You too! Thanks for your protection!" I answered in my mind.
