- Zoe’s Point of View –
It had been 9 months, 9 months since Wash went to the battle zone. Everyone’s worried about them cause Mal wasn’t there to lead them
Mal was here. With me and the rest.
Wash, Dr. Simon , Jayne and Kylee were on a mission together. While me, Mal, River and Pastor where here on the HQ
Mal had been severally damaged because of the previous mission and here was I treating him while the others Had some work or the other
“so, how have you been holding up “ I heard Mal say from my back
I turned half way and answered “I am fine Mal, its you who are injured not me” I said to him
“you haven’t heard me right or you are dodging my question, either of them both” mal said while tapping the empty side of his bed gesturing me to take a seat next to him
I walked to him and sat down beside him “ ya I am not fine and how am I supposed to be its been 9 long months since I last saw Wash, he’s my husband and I am worried bout him” I said to mal almost to fast to humanly understand
“I am well aware that he’s your husband, need not tell me all the time Zoe” mal said to me
“I heard you two, the night before Wash was to leave and its not right to say that I have been hearing you two for a long, I know eavesdropping is bad but the truth I knew from that is even worst” mal said with his eyes fixed on me the whole time
“you what” I was speechless cause how can he do this to me how can he come between a conversation between me and Wash and casually here it all, and the worst thing is when the conversation was bout him “why didn’t you tell me this before, why now” I said to mal
“cause I never got the time to do so, I never had you with me this way, in total privacy while everyone is out” mal reasoned himself
“look I am sorry about whatever Wash said bout you, he is just a bit…” “jealous” mal said in a trying to complete my sentence “protective” I said quite pushing it
“ I know that Wash was jealous, I know that’s the reason you have started to stay away from me and you are even here because you have too, you got no other choice but to stay here if it wasn’t for that forget me and you having this conversation . I am telling you Wash doesn’t like what we share” mal said but before letting him continue I stood up and screamed “we share nothing” it was not true we shared a lot of things together, our whole childhood and if Wash hadn’t come into my life and influenced me to marry him, I was pretty sure Mal was my future.
I still love mal
But Wash has seen our bonding and he is very offended by it. He screamed at me for spending my time with Mal he wanted us apart but Wash didn’t knew that I still love him and I know mal loves me back its just Wash I don’t want him hurt besides he’s my husband
Mal was staring at me “ am I wrong here Zoe, am I wrong to say that you don’t feel the same way you used to feel bout me, for Wash, tell me Zoe do you smile the same smile you used to smile when you were with me, with Wash. Tell me that you don’t love Wash the same way you used to love me which, my Love, was the way you love. I know you still love me and Wash is just bringing you down, you wish to feel the same high as you felt with me. TELL ME” by this time mal was towering over me. He had took the hold of my arms tight…..
