Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Mal, Simon

Rating: G

Summary: Mal explains to Simon why they have to rescue Jayne.

Word Count: 100

Written For: doreyg's prompt Firefly, Any, "'Ohana" means "family." "Family" means "no one gets left behind." at [community profile] fic_promptly.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Firefly, or the characters. They belong to their creators.

A/N: I always said I would NEVER write Firefly. Well, never again. Much as I love listening to it, dialogue for this show is a nightmare to write. I tried my best.

“We go in, get Jayne, get gone. Got it?”

“I have a question.” Simon. Figured. “Do we have to rescue him?”

“Yes, and we’d do the same regardless which of us got caught. Ohana. Family. That’s us. Means nobody gets left behind, not even Jayne, much as I reckon there’s times we’d all like to do it anyways. We stick together, makes us stronger. Any one of us alone, we got nothin’. Together, we got somethin’ worth fightin’ for. Each other. Us and this ship, that’s all there is ‘tween us and the black. It’s more ‘n most folks got.”

The End
