Wedding - Morning After
Sunday, January 7, 2007

Just a little epilogue to the Simon/Kaylee wedding (both of them!) with Mal and Freya enjoying a lay in. Feedback, as always, is most welcome!


CATEGORY: FICTION    TIMES READ: 1802    RATING: 9    SERIES: FIREFLY

“Didn’t you ever think about her?” Freya asked, the sheets tangled around her and Mal as they lay in bed, waiting for the ship to wake up around them.

“What, me and Zoe?” He looked down at her, stroking the back of her arm.

“Yeah. I mean, after Wash, and all …”

“Sure.”

She sat up in surprise. “You did?”

“Well, you asked.”

“And … did …”

“No.” He took hold of her and pulled her back to him, her breasts squished against his chest. “In all the time in the war, then after, I never took Zoe to bed.”

“But you wanted to.”

“Once. Maybe twice.”

“Why didn’t you?”

He half-laughed. “Well, for one, before I got made up to Sergeant there wasn't the time. Then when I was, she was my corporal and you don’t do it on your own doorstep. Be taking an unfair advantage.”

“And after?”

“I was the captain. Same rule applies.”

“But you wanted to,” she insisted.

“Frey, I’ve been with Zoe longer’n some marriages last. Hell, longer’n most. And she’s as close to me as a woman can get without being in my bed. She knows stuff about me that I wouldn’t want anyone else to know.”

“Even me?”

“Especially you. There’s dark deeds in my past that would curl your hair and make you go pale.”

“Really?” She looked into his eyes. “Like what?”

“No. That’s the point. I ain't telling, and neither is she.”

“That still doesn’t explain –“

“I think it does. Sure, I've wondered what she’d be like in bed. Used to hear her and Wash fighting and making up, and believe me, you think we’re loud? Nothing compared to them. I mean, she’s a damn fine looking woman, as I once said to Wash himself. But when she married him, that made her off limits anyway. Even if I had been looking to find me a bedmate.”

“Hmmn.”

He lifted her chin so he could look into her dark eyes. “Don’t you want to know why I wasn’t?”

“I don’t know,” she admitted.

“Hey, you started this!”

“I know. Maybe I shouldn’t have.”

He moved so he was facing her, his lips just a breath from hers. “I’d met you.”

“What?”

“I’d met you. When I was just made up to sergeant. And you changed me in ways I didn’t want to admit. Maybe before I would have, just have taken her. But not after.”

“Is that why you didn’t take Inara?”

“One of the reasons,” he admitted. “There were others, but, yes. One of them.”

She leaned forward just enough so that she could touch his lips with hers. “I love you.”

“I know.” He reached for her, hooking his hand around her waist to pull her towards him, feeling his growing child inside her. “And I love you. With all my heart.”

“Not even a little bit left for the others?”

“Maybe a bit.” He smiled. “Although it kinda occurs to me that maybe I love them with my head.”

“Just so long as your body stays mine,” she said, pressing herself against him.

“Always.”

“So does this mean you ain’t gonna space Hank now he’s bedded Zoe?” she asked, nibbling the skin around his nipple.

He groaned slightly. “Might take more persuasion.”

She smiled up at him. “That I think I can manage.”

Loved this! About time we had some Mal and Freya, I really like how the two of them are together. Feels so natural. I also wish you write a longer story with that pairing. Shiny, Ali D :~)

Lovely - get Maya interaction - I agree with Amdobell that I wish you'd write a bit more with just the two of them.

And I want to see more Simon and Kaylee - you can write them, even if you think they're not your strong suit!

Oops, that's supposed to say "great" Maya interaction - sorry!

Yep...you definitely got the knack for dialogue. And especially Maya dialogue;)

Really does make one wonder if ever Mal or Zoe have ever thought about what the other would be like as a sexual partner...not like Zoe and Mal can get any closer;D

OTHER FANFICS BY AUTHOR

Monied Individual - Epilogue
"I honestly don’t know if my pilot wants to go around with flowers and curlicues carved into his leg.”
[Maya. Post-BDM. The end of the story, and the beginning of the last ...]


Monied Individual - Part XX
Mal took a deep breath, allowing it out slowly through his nostrils, and now his next words were the honest truth. “Ain’t surprised. No matter how good you are, and I’m not complaining, I’ve seen enough battle wounds, had to help out at the odd amputation on occasion. And I don’t have to be a doc myself to tell his leg ain’t quite the colour it should be, even taking into account his usual pasty complexion. What you did … didn’t work, did it?”
[Maya. Post-BDM. Simon has no choice, and Luke comes around.]


Monied Individual - Part XIX
“His name’s Jayne?”

“What’s wrong with that?” the ex-mercenary demanded from the doorway.

“Nothing, nothing! I just … I don’t think I’ve ever met a man … anyone else by that name.”

“Yeah, he’s a mystery to all of us,” Mal said. “Even his wife.”

[Maya. Post-BDM. Hank's not out of the woods yet, and Mal has a conversation. Enjoy!]


Monied Individual - Part XVIII
Jayne had told him a story once, about being on the hunt for someone who owed him something or other. He’d waited for his target for three hours in four inches of slush as the temperature dropped, and had grinned when he’d admitted to Hank that he’d had to break his feet free from the ice when he’d finished.
[Maya. Post-BDM. The Fosters show their true colours, Jayne attempts a rescue, and the others may be too late.]


Snow at Christmas
She’d seen his memories of his Ma, the Christmases when he was a boy on Shadow, even a faint echo of one before his Pa died, all still there, not diminished by his burning, glowing celebrations of now with Freya.

[Maya. Post-BDM. A seasonal one-off - enjoy!]


Monied Individual - Part XVII
Jayne hadn’t waited, but planted a foot by the lock. The door was old, the wood solid, but little could stand against a determined Cobb boot with his full weight behind it. It burst open.


[Maya. Post-BDM. The search for Hank continues. Read, enjoy, review!]


Monied Individual - Part XVI
He slammed the door behind him, making the plates rattle on the sideboard. “It’s okay, girl, I ain't gonna hurt you.” The cook, as tradition dictated, plump and rosy cheeked with her arms covered to the elbows in flour, but with a gypsy voluptuousness, picked up a rolling pin.

[Maya. Post-BDM. Kaylee finds the problem with Serenity, and Jayne starts his quest. Read, enjoy, review!]



Monied Individual - Part XV
“Did we …” “We did.” “Why?” As she raised an eyebrow at him he went on quickly, “I mean, we got a comfy bunk, not that far away. Is there any particular reason we’re in here instead?” “You don’t remember?” He concentrated for a moment, and the activities of a few hours previously burst onto him like a sunbeam. “Oh, right,” he acknowledged happily.

[Maya. Post-BDM. A little with each Serenity couple, but something goes bang. Read, enjoy, review!]

Monied Individual - Part XIV
This wasn’t how an ex-companion did things. Perhaps she’d been hanging around a certain Firefly captain for too long. He listened at keyholes as if it were a competitive sport.

[Maya. Post-BDM. The crew go to the Spring Lights Procession, Mal gives some good news, and Sir Warwick puts in another cameo. Read, enjoy, review!]
