River needs help dealing with her brother's death


CATEGORY: FICTION    TIMES READ: 1788    RATING: 8    SERIES: FIREFLY

two drabbles originally written for Live Journal community firefly100. Prompt:late & Prompt:earth

River/Jayne unusual for me _______________________________________________ Comfort

Simon was dead and but for her it might never have happened.

The crippling guilt ate at her brain, it never stilled. Only when he came late at night and comforted her did she felt right.

When his arms wrapped round her she felt calmed, soothed, safe and precious. Emotions she’d never expected to feel with him.

During the day the feelings frightened her and she pushed at him, hoping to make him angry.

His anger, never difficult to achieve, erupted and she got what she wanted.

He didn’t come back and the feelings were gone.

She wanted him so.

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

Grave

River lay flat in the dirt trying to get closer to her brother.

Unable to articulate her feelings; she’d persuaded the Captain to bring her here hoping that when she saw the grave the nightmares would cease. That talking to her brother would clarify her emotions, stop her missing Jayne.

Simon wasn’t here; it was just an earth covering for his body. Perhaps his spirit was on Serenity waiting for her. Reluctant to return River fended off her crewmates efforts to coax her back. Everything overwhelmed her there.

Strong confident footsteps approached “Gonna lie there all night girl?” asked Jayne.

Oh ho...how'd the Doc buy it this time? Cuz Simon's undergoing a renaissance of death stories these days;)

Still...this is great stuff, bookaddict. Your drabbles show the possible method by which Rayne would exist that doesn't seem to supposedly violate established character traits;)
