BLUE SUN ROOM FAN FICTION - ADVENTURE
Serenity hands off one of their contacts to Monty and encounter some trouble along the way from an old adversary – guess who!. No.4 of Series 2 but pretty much a standalone, featuring post BDM characters and a few of my own creation. Having feedback is like charging my battery, please comment.
CATEGORY: FICTION TIMES READ: 1170 RATING: 9 SERIES: FIREFLY
“Galley in five minutes people!” Mal’s order came over the com. Seven minutes later everyone was assembled at the table with the Captain at the head. Mal instinctively looked for Zoe before he remembered why she wasn’t there. She was back at Gang Kou nursing a broken ankle. Why was it he who felt like he couldn’t walk without her though?
“Monty’s waved us to say he’s gonna be a bit delayed at the rendezvous. So we’ll all just haveta sit pretty with Dura an’ wait for Monty when we get to Regina.”
“Can’t say I’m a fan of sittin’ pretty on Regina. Last time we did that we were almost hijacked,” commented Karl. Of course, it was that almost-hijack that had largely been responsible for Jayne and Esper getting together. Kaylee had missed all the fun, having been on her honeymoon at the time.
“Well this time…” Mal reasoned. “…we’ll land near enough to Dura’s ship to give joint protection, should any trouble arise.” Mal turned to River. “As an extra precaution, I want you to stay up in the cockpit and monitor any space traffic that might be comin’ in an’ out of atmo -”
“-That’s not Monty,” finished River. Mal nodded and opened his mouth again. “And I’ll keep the door locked,” she added after reading his thoughts. Kaylee smirked at Mal’s good-natured frowning.
“You want me to stay locked in the engine room too, Cap’n?”
“I see anymore evidence of them space monkeys you’ve had lately, an’ I’ll lock you in there myself,” quipped Mal, just as quick. “What exactly are you doing in the engine room?” Kaylee flushed with righteous engineer indignation.
“I’m tryin’ to find out why the left thruster power fluctuations are affecting the hydraulics. In order to do that I have to re-route the-“ Mal held up his hand to stop her from speaking fluent mechanic any further.
“Yes, all right, Frye. Jus’ make sure there’s nothin’ so wrong that it’ll get us stuck on Regina if we really need to get outta of there.”
“Course I will, Cap’n. I woun’t do nothin’ –“
“I’m jokin’, Kaylee. You leave your sense o’ humour back at Gang Kou?”
“She gave it to Zoe for save keepin’ along with yours,” put in Karl and Bane sniggered. Kaylee gave him a grateful smile, and Mal a glare. Mal rolled his eyes, again wishing Zoe was sitting right there next to him, before turning his attention to Bane.
“This delay’ll hopefully mean you can finish his order?” he asked. He pressed his lips together to prevent himself from saying anything further. Bane had been distracted for some months – as if she was living with her head in the clouds. Unfortunately clouds don’t rain coin and it was time for her to focus.
“I got a coupla more crates to go, Cap’n and then I should be done,” she answered him easily. The truth was Bane had more than a couple of crates to go - more like ten. She was having trouble concentrating on getting the job finished, but that was partly Karl’s fault.
“See that it’s done afore Monty gets here.” Bane nodded.
