Rather Be

After everything was over, when Serenity was spaceworthy again, they moved to a planet near the core, and Inara took her shuttle off to the largest city. She was gone most of the day, and when she returned, she wore a simple dark gown.

“My Companion license lapses in three days,” she said. “And I haven’t renewed it.”

“Any specific plans?” Mal asked.

“I thought I might join a crew,” said Inara. “Know anyone hiring?”

“I…” he began, then stopped. “Stay, ‘Nara. Just… stay, with me. Please.”

She reached for his hand, holding tight. “There’s nowhere else I’d rather be.”
