Intro

"All hands report to damage control stations." The loudspeakers blared as Mal and Jayne rushed down a dim hallway lit by red emergency light strips on the floor. Reaching an ornate set of doors Mal wrenched them open, Jayne covering the two of them, revealing Inara looking the picture of elegance. Mal gestured to her frantically.

"I'm not going anywhere." She said haughtily. She was decked in a deep red gown, perfectly coiffed and poised, acting as though nothing was out of the ordinary, even as the ship lurched under their feet.

"Mal, we gotta go." Jayne interrupted.

"Bรฌ zuว!" Mal yelled at Jayne, continuing to stare at Inara. She lowered her gaze as another voice spoke, "Bao bei."

"All hands report to damage control stations." The loudspeakers blared as an aristocratic man stepped through a doorway on the far side of the room, a pistol in one hand.

shopperc13: I literally loved everything about it!! Youโ€™re seriously very talented.

BlueIvydoll: A short story, but it is full of action and love. Not a classic woman in distress romance. In fact, just the opposite. Blake is a strong confident woman and it is refreshing. There are few grammar mistakes and I wish the story was longer, but the author has been good at making sure you learn ...
