Both Sides: Part 1 (a Jaylee Story)
Monday, May 29, 2006

I’ve been watching ‘The New World’ and liked the way the narrative swung between John Smith and Pocahontas’ point-of-view. This story is told from both sides of the relationship. Each part is from Jayne or Kaylee’s point-of-view, or both! Other characters pop in and out. Some chapters will be from their point of view.


CATEGORY: FICTION    TIMES READ: 1042    RATING: 8    SERIES: FIREFLY

Title: Helping Series Title: Both Sides (1 of 18) Author: Humbug Rating: PG Fandom: Firefly Pairing: Jayne/Kaylee Word Count: 419 Summary: Told from both sides of Kaylee and Jayne's relationship Disclaimer: Joss is Boss. I'm just borrowing his characters for fun!! Warning: Jaylee goodness! But other characters can't help joining in.

Authors note: Thanks to bookaddict43 for betaing.

Be gentle! This is my first time posting any fanfic.

So here goes!

*********************** Bookaddict and Squish challenged me to try writing some Jaylee fanfic of my own, after posting some plot bunnies for the Philsophy_20 prompt table at Livejournal.

Be gentle! It’s my first fanfic. The plot bunny came from prompt #7 both sides.

I’ve been watching ‘The New World’ and liked the way the narrative swung between John Smith and Pocahontas’ POV (point-of-view) and also the naturals and the colonists POV! So blame Terrence Malik, and of course Joss!!!

Enjoy! (I hope….) ***********************

Part 1

“Jayne!” called Kaylee, “Jayne, I need a hand with this… Can ya just….?”

Jayne instinctively grabbed the engine part before it slipped from her fingers and onto the crosswalk below.

“What d’ya need help with, lil Kaylee?”

“I gotta change this converter. I just could do with an extra pair of hands……” she smiled weakly. “I reckon I need about a dozen extra pairs of hands to finish all the work needs doin’ on Serenity.”

“And a whole heap more money than the Cap’n gives ya!” the merc grinned back. “ I dunno how ya do it, Kaylee! I reckon ya keep Serenity flyin’ just by wantin’ it.”

“And, of course, with all the help I get from willin’ crew mates. Thanks, Jayne!” She drove the point home by resting her hand on his arm and gently squeezing.

His heart beat faster at her touch. Her smile lit up her whole face, and she was aiming it at him. “You’re welcome! I wouldn’t do it for just anyone, ya know!”

She was so shiny! How could he get her to notice him? She saw him as a good friend, how could he get her to realise that to him she was a whole lot more? How could he get her attention without her thinking that all he wanted was some sexing? Of course, sexing Kaylee would be real shiny. ….

***********************

“Jayne?” asked Kaylee, “Where did ya go? I was talkin’ to ya and ya didn’t bat an eyelid……”

“I was just thinkin’…..” he said mysteriously.

“Thinkin’ about what?”

He turned away to hide the slight blush that was creeping up on his cheeks. “Stuff”

Kaylee was intrigued, normally Jayne was so open with her. What could he be hiding? He usually just said the first thing that came into his head and gorram the consequences.

“Where do ya want this here part?” he asked.

“Put it down here. Can ya pass me that wrench?”

“The black one or that shiny one?”

“The black one, please.”

As he passed it to her their fingers brushed and she shivered. Sweet Buddha, the effect that man had on her, so tall and swai.

“Are ya feeling cold? ‘Cause I can get ya that blanket my Ma sent me in that last parcel from home.”

“Naw. I’m okay. Everything’s shiny!”

They shared a companionable silence as she worked on fitting the new part, each absorbed in their own thoughts.

“I was wonderin’ what ya Ma sent ya. That package was so big!”

To be continued....

I like it alot, didn't notice the exclamation points, i was too busy reading, i'm falling off, i tend to be one who analyzes everything. I hear it's very annoying.
