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.

"What do ya mean yer not goin' anywhere?" Mal said lowering his pistol in confusion as klaxons blared around them.

"You shouldn't have come Mal. This is where I belong." Inara's voice was hard as she spoke, as if she were biting each word as it left her lips.

"Mal, we gotta go." Jayne interrupted.

"Bì zuǐ!" 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.
