A soft glow illuminated River’s room. She lay awake, staring at the ceiling, singing to herself.

“Two by two, hands of blue,

Watch out, now they’re coming for you.

Stay asleep, in your bed,

Or you will sleep with the dead.”

Again.

And again.

She heard the screams of those pulled from their cots in the middle of the night. How they struggled in vain. The bolt of pain before they died.

A leg bumped her cot.

She jerked, eyes clenching shut.

“River?”

Simon.

She stared as he sat on the edge of her bed. She blinked hard to confirm his corporealism.

But her eyes had betrayed her before.

She reached out to take his hand. It wasn’t blue.

“I heard you singing,” he said, brushing the hair from her face.

“They come out of the black,” she whispered. Anyone could be next.

Simon glanced down at their hands, clasped together.

“I can give you something to sleep,” he said. There was sadness in his tone, but hope, too. Hope that he could help. She felt it flow through his hand, into hers. Comforting.

“Okay,” she said, eyes filling with tears. “Help me sleep.”

“There’s pain,” River said, as if the blood trickling from her shoulder wasn’t her own. She stared at the medical bay door, beyond Simon. Perhaps beyond Serenity.

“I have some Propoxyn.”

Simon glanced up from his neat row of stitches for a sign that she’d heard him. There was none. Her eyes remained distant.

Then, slowly, her hands rose to the height of her shoulder.

He handed her the clamp and curved needle, careful to avoid pulling on the sutures as he did so. She took them. He removed his gloves and opened the nearest drawer.

It wasn’t a large bullet wound, but if he ever found the thug responsible, he’d pay Jayne to do what Jayne did best. Quietly. Permanently.

River’s voice interrupted his thoughts.

“He didn’t mean to hurt her.”

Simon retrieved the vial and syringe. He closed the drawer with more force than necessary.

“But he did.”

“Inconsistent barometric pressure and wind speed contributed to inaccurate bullet penetration.” River looked over at him. “He was aiming for you.”

“I know,” Simon said. “I’m still not sure he missed.”
