Jayne materialised from the darkness and wrapped his strong arms around the young doctor, pinning him. “Not a good idea. Mal’s as like to give you one last chance then shoot you. If you’d tried that on me, now, you’d be bleeding into the dirt, but then Mal always was a soft touch.” “Let me go!” “Nope. Less you’d like me to hand you over to Frey, and don’t go thinking that’s the easy option.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Couples talk, Simon's anger bubbles over, and Inara's time is running out.]

Several buildings along the landing field stood half-charred, while some had already collapsed in on themselves. Several bodies were strewn across the ground on the landing field. “Ni gan shenme ne (What the hell?), Gerrin murmured. - - - - Loomie looked at him. “Turn back?” - - - - “Not an option”, Gerrin snorted.

You need help with the big ones?” - - - The guard turned his muzzle toward Aldous. “Cerrado (enough)!” his boss snapped. “We get the package first!” Turning back to Gerrin, the leader ordered “Now, give us the runner, or you get to watch us have some fun with your lady friends, here”. - - - Gerrin started to protest, but Inabran cut him off. “Why are you talking to HIM?” she demanded.
