Treasure
Title: Treasure. 
Characters/Pairing: River. Rayne. 
Genre: Angst, romance, songfic. 
Rating: Fine for all. 
Summary: River tells a story. 
Author's Note: Another short piece I came up with whilst listening to my i-pod. Much thanks to the dude of dudes Mr BBJ for checking it over for me. This was inspired by Flyleaf's song "Treasure." I hope you like it.


I shall tell you of how I became his treasure.

He loved his coin, his money and rewards. He killed and robbed for it. There was nothing he wouldn’t do to get money in his pocket for whores or food and new weapons. He did anything to survive.

Some would say it was selfish and greedy, but so what if it was little one?  He had a code, a way of living and he stuck by it…right until the end.

But oh how we danced little one! We danced so gloriously together he didn’t realise!   

At first we danced against each other as rivals and enemies, he hated and I fuelled that hate, he thought me nothing of value. He told me I was trouble, that I would bring the Alliance upon them all and be their deaths!  The dance it was vicious, adversarial and dangerous! It made us clash like the Titans of Earth That Was!  

I was in his way.

Then he saw a value for me. He tried to sell me for his precious coin, he thought a reward for a fugitive such as me would pay handsomely! Of course ape man was wrong!

Miranda…

He eventually realised what was important. What transpired beyond the space of Reavers changed the ape-man into Jayne, made him more than what he had ever been and that night it made me his treasure!

We didn’t dance like rivals anymore after that. As the scars began to heal, we danced to a different tune… we became partners and we became close. We were refined but he was still Jayne.

He never admitted his love or let his feelings show, not until the night you were born.

No one knew just how he felt, not until he laid down his life for me, for us.

Miranda… we became his coin, his reward.

He died so we may live.

Know that we were treasured above all the ‘verse.

Oh! I'm sorry lass!

At the time the song moved me to tears because I saw it all! I do love my i-pod inspired moments! They are so intense when they happen!

Yeah there is very little Rayne, but it's not gone. We're all doing other fandoms, but we'll come back to it. Rayne will always be there! XD

Glad you liked despite its tragedy. Thank you!

This is beautifully written

"He never admitted his love or let his feelings show, not until the night you were born."

A., you managed to weave beauty and tragedy together so beautifully, my friend.

I loved the dancing analogy and that Jayne had come full circle, ready to die for his precious "coins."

Choked up now by your lovely tapestry.

Much love and thanks for sharing this. :-)

A., this is so beautiful! And more intense than a 10k+ [words] story could ever be.
