The fighting stopped. Bob looked at River.
“I didn't hurt you.”
River shook her head, “I'm too quick and I know how to fight. You won't ever be able to hurt me physically.”
Bob's lip wobbled, “They hurt my friends. My Ma and Pa.”
River gently held his shoulder, “I know.”
“You killed a room full of Reavers?”
River smiled, “And a whole bunch in the desert on Cairo.”
