"Wait! Wash. Where's Wash?" Kaylee's voice held a note of desperation that was mirrored by the look on her face. All of them looked to Zoe.

Kaylee's face fell. The others stared at Zoe in dismay. Jayne stood for a moment, holding the handle of a crate.

Ain't comin'. What does that even mean? Is he holding the back? No. The lines on Zoe's face. Wash had a knack of keeping them at bay… They are in full force. Wash is never coming.

And could share the burden once more.
