Inara had left Kaylee’s side while she still slept, gently smoothing her hair and headed towards her shuttle. Maybe some rest would bring new light to her thoughts. Upon entering, she slipped off her shoes and crawled back into the rumpled sheets she had not made from the night before. Her eyelids were heavy, and her lashes fluttered against her cheeks as sleep came to a listless body.
He couldn't keep his eyes off of her. She even slept with grace. He had barged into her shuttle unannounced and looking for a fight when he stumbled upon the sleeping beauty before him. He didn’t know what to do with himself. She stirred up a fire in his belly, twisted it in knots, but her face brought a peace to his soul, something he hadn’t felt for a long while.
This morning she had been the epitomy of what drove him crazy. The cold ice princess that wandered through the ship, leaving a frost in her wake. She had dismissed his genuine effort at an intimate moment when they had found out that Kaylee and Simon had named their daughter after her. It had darkened his mood instantly, she had that affect on him. But now here she was and something inside him told him not to leave. It told him to pull her into his arms, make the leap and not look back. Yet he couldn’t. She had her world, and he his. What made it all so unbearable was that he had a creeping suspicion that they were doomed.
She shifted her hands to rest underneath her chin while still slumbering and pulled her knees upward, revealing the soft flesh of her thighs. Mal’s heart thudded against his chest and there was a sharp intake of breath, causing him to take a step back. He slowly began to back out of her shuttle when she stirred once more, lifting her head and opening her eyes directly on Mal.
He ran a hand through his hair, disheveling it even more than usual, then cast his eyes downward as she slid into a sitting position on the bed, the skirt of her dress riding up even more.
She cocked her eyebrow inquisitively and just waited for him to explain why it was that he was in her shuttle.
"I..ahh..just wanted to...ya know", Mal scratched his left cheek, trying to buy some time to think of an excuse, since his first plan of fighting had abandoned him the moment he saw her sleeping form," To ahh...check on how you were doing. Long night and all."
Her eyes shone with recognition. He was just as fearful as she was and this made her more bold than she had ever thought she could be. This was it, she coouldn't bear the weight that his presence forced on her, she was going to lift it. Her heart fluttered in her chest as she climbed off the bed.
Mal instinctively moved a step closer to her.
"I'm tired Mal."
Inara took another step forward.
Mal breached the gap between them and pulled her into his arms. Leaning his head down, he captured Inara's lips tenderly with his own, taking the leap.
River had been holding her niece while Simon helped Kaylee from the infirmary to their room. A small giggle erupted from her lips as Kaylee settled down on the bed.
"What's so funny sweetie?"
River just beamed as she handed over Sara to Kaylee.
She gave Kaylee a pointed look, a private message between them shared and then left the room for the little family to get situated on their own. Kaylee began to chuckle herself, causing Simon to look at her with a growing concern. He turned his head to look at where his sister had left and then back at his wife, still puzzled by the cryptic exchange.
"What is so funny?"
Kaylee just began laughing even harder, causing her newborn daughter to squirm in her arms. Leaning down to kiss Sara's soft cheek, Kaylee whispered in her ear," Your daddy is such a boob."
