Chapter 22: Into the void.

Scorpion walked down the dreary corridor with the armed boarding crew to her holding cell. It was actually a nicely furnished officer’s room. The Congressman wanted her to travel in style, so he sent an Alliance heavy cruiser to meet her. The doors whooshed closed behind her and she knew that she was in custody.

Maybe they would execute her. She hoped for the best but didn’t hold her breath.

“I feel it coming apart, well at least I tried.” She said to herself.

There was a buzz at her door. And the handsomely dapper Captain McGovern walked in.

“There you are Maria!” he said as he walked in and hugged her. “You must be so happy to be going home once more!” he said. She didn’t understand.

“Captain!” she said and they exchanged kisses on each cheek.

What in the wild blue yonder is going on? She thought.

“I mean, Councilmen West- What a catch! Congrats on your impending marriage,” he said once more.

She tried to keep her composure. So they wouldn’t kill her- just marry her off.

She gave a sheepishly confused look: “Yes. Lucky,” she said, smiling. It was a false smile. One she had used many times before. Old habits die hard.

He sensed her hesitation: “What’s wrong?”

“I’m nervous,” she blatantly lied to him. For all his faults and what he represented- he was still a nice guy. And blond. And we all know blonds are not known for their intelligence.

“Ah, it is to be expected, it’s only a day away from Bellerophon, so don’t worry your pretty little head. There are some clothes in a drawer over there and plenty of books and movies on the cortex. I would like you to stay in here though; you’re on a military ship. For your protection- of course.” He said smiling. Of course- she thought. “I’m still a gorram Browncoat.”

He continued: “Dinners at 8. I shall bring it by myself. “Thank you for being so kind to me,” she said, saying the line that she had learned to say by heart.

“What are friends for?” he said smiling as he took his leave.

She nodded curtly to his retreating form.

Silent. Depression. Resumes.

She collapsed on the bed and stared at the ceiling. There was nothing she could do-yet.

Oh Jayne.

** It was much later when he came back with dinner. She wouldn’t have any more protein. Now it was filet of something with a side of a fresh something else.

He stared at her while she ate. Her lady-like demeanor didn’t crack. She smiled at him and made needless conversation. It was mostly about her upcoming wedding.

What he didn’t know was that she was trying to get as much information as possible. After she finished dinner a wave from her future husband came through.

The Captain excused himself and she was left alone.

Dr West’s bright and cheery face came on the screen.

She dropped all pretenses as her face went from pleasant to downright nasty.

“You think you are funny,” she started. “But it won’t work. They will never let you keep me,”

“You know- I adore you,” he said, stars in his eyes. Maria noted he looked quite pathetic. “And I know that the only way they will allow you to live is if I protect you. Your actions were so noble and brave. I want to reward you, come be my wife.” He said matter of fact like.

She raised an eyebrow: “Oh- Really.” She believed him as far as she could throw him. Considering the brute strenghth she would need and the velocity of said throw- it wasn’t very far.

He looked at her and laughed: “Ok, not really- I just have a fascination with you and I’m so lonely.”

She wanted to vomit on the screen but didn’t. Actually she couldn’t, she didn’t want to bring up the lovely meal she had eaten. She knew he was lying and that he had ulterior motives. “What about Lady Yoshida?” she asked. She wanted to know about what’s going to happen to the snake in the grass.

Maria unconsciously did a feminine thing by tossing her hair back. Dr. West sighed and glowed.

“So beautiful,” he said, distracted for a moment. “Kill her-if you want. But she is of no consequence and cannot hurt you.” He said bluntly.

“I don’t want to kill her. I am tired of killing. I’ll let her live- it’ll be worse for her,” she said, emotionless.

“Ah- sadistic. Very good, dearest. I’ll see soon. Then we can talk about our future together,”

"I hate you. I’ll hurt you. I’ll kill you" she thought.

She just smiled “I’m looking forward to it,”

The wave closed.

**

She was lying in her bed when the proximity bells went off.

She closed her eyes and visualized what was near- It was Lady Yoshida’s ship.

“Well it’s about time,” Scorpion said as she got off the bed. She went to a corner and climbed the wall, awaiting an attack.

It was several moments when the communications terminus that was on the desk in the room- It was the Captain.

She dropped from her perched and clicked the screen on.

McGovern was smiling his usual smile.

“Dearest Maria- I am sorry to disturb your rest. But there is a rather important visitor that is dying to meet you and she traveled all this way…”

Scorpion sat for a second and contemplated but decided for decorum. “By all means my good Captain, show her in.” she said, icily.

It was time to face her.

I was glad to see this, I was afraid it was all over! Loved it BTW. She is so cool and collected on the outside, even when there's turmoil on the inside.

Waiting eagerly for the next one!
