Here you go G. It's not my best... :)

He was bored.

Although he had been given a very important job, he just wasn’t having as much fun looking after the ship any more. Before, it was fun and so grown-up to be given such responsibility, now…as Kaylee continued doing more routine maintenance on Serenity…he was left with “just sittin’.”

That was boring.

“Gorramit! Ruttin’ hell!”

Kaylee pulled herself out from under the console again and smiled softly up at the six year old. Finn had placed his feet up on the co-pilot’s panels—in a clear attempt to mimic the merc—but his lack of Jayne height made him slump down into the chair.

Kaylee had given up telling Finn to stop swearing. Between the Captain and Jayne, the boy had heard more cussin’ than what most kids would at his age. It was also clear as day that Wash’s boy had a heavy case of hero worship towards the merc. Mal didn’t like it…probably because he was a little jealous that Finn hadn’t latched on to him.

“Somethin’ wrong, li’l one?” She asked as she sat up and brushed some of her hair out of her face. Finn shook his head and sighed heavily. “Bored?”

“Yeah. Wanna go and help ma, get Jayne and River back.”

“I know you do.” Kaylee slipped into the chair and sat Finn on her lap, hugging him close. “But yer little and it ain’t a place fer li’l people.”

“But I’m not little! Ma said I’m growin’ up real fast! I’ve gotten big!”

“And she ain’t wrong, but ya only a boy…too young to be gettin’ into the thick of things. Ya got the big job of lookin’ after Serenity! Ya know the Cap don’t jus’ leave anyone in charge of her. He knows you’ll keep her an’ me safe.”

“But that’s Jayne’s job.”

“He’s getting’ River back…ain’t he?”

There it was. The big grin widened and brightened so much that Kaylee’s breath caught in her throat. He looked so much like Wash right at that moment that Kaylee could have sworn it was him. Kaylee hugged him even more.

“Yeah…Jayne’s gettin’ her back. So is Simon and…”

“Jayne likes River…don’t he? He says he don’t…but he’s lyin’.”


“They fight a lot. Like Mal and Inara.”

“Yeah, Jayne and Riv fight, though not like the Cap an’ ‘Nara.”

Finn bobbed his head. “Jayne and River scream a lot, they break things and they’re in the infirmary a lot too. Simon doesn’t like it. Mal doesn’t like it either.”

Kaylee felt her face blush. It was going to happen eventually. Whilst the rest of the crew were (more) than aware of the new relationship between the merc and pilot, it was inevitable that the boy would eventually ask questions. Kaylee thought it would be Inara who would explain these things.

“Well…the cap don’t like disruption.”

“He don’t like it when people run about in the nud neither.”

“No. He don’t…it’s one of his rules.”

“Captain Mal yells at me if I do it but he don’t when Jayne and River do it.” Finn shuffled round on Kaylee’s lap so his legs propped over the side of the chair.

“When didcha see them--?” She shook her head. She really didn’t want to know. “Look, the cap don’t know quite what to make of what’s happened to Jayne and River. There’s a lotta questions that needs answerin’.”

“They’re havin' sex, aren’t they Kaylee?”

The mechanic’s mouth dropped open. It was a direct and a perfectly normal question to ask, but again Kaylee’s cheeks burnt a hot red and she just couldn’t respond. Yes was the answer, yes is a simple and clear answer. She couldn’t say it…especially when she thought on Jayne and River.

Whatever they had…it weren’t simple and clear.

Thankfully, the night sky just outside Serenity’s windows, exploded with bursts of colour and explosions. The fireworks crackled and fizzed and it had the mechanic and the boy gazing in wonder at the display.

“Oooh look at the pretty fireworks!”

Finn Washburn was already doing so and was completely oblivious that his mum was behind it all.

Oh A this was awesomesauce! I LOVE Finn, such a cutie even with the potty mouth (and frankly, given the ship they're on, it's only to be expected!).

Fabulous, loved it!

Oh! You've already seen this!! Great!

Finn is such a joy to write! Him with the case of idolism towards Jayne is just something that seemed right...y'know? I will try and do more sometime. And hell yeah...if everyone on that ship swears, in english or mandarin...the fella is going to pick up on it! :)

Glad you liked! Cheers muchly!

Oh! I love it! Nothing like a 6 year old asking awkward questions about that violently sexing duo;)

Glad you liked! And thanks for setting that challenge for me! I did laugh when you requested that 'verse because I had just updated the second chapter! I had to REALLY think on what to write without giving anything else of the plot away!

Much appreciated G-gal! xx
