Jayne Cobb couldn’t believe his luck. He was all manner of excited over the fact that he was gonna get his own bunk and full run a the galley. He was lugging his duffle into the cargo hold when he spotted her. She was arguing with a stupid lookin’ blond hun dun
who was pointin’ at a piece a go-se
“Now that ain’t right, Bester! Wash put a lot a work into that mule, and it ain’t fair a you to try and take it!” She was yelling. Jayne took a full, measuring look. It was killin’ her to yell at him.
“Yeah, but I worked on that engine, kept it tuned. I ain’t givin’ it to some dumbass captain and a prairie harpy that stole my job!” Bester yelled right back, leaning forward so he could glare her down. She looked close to breaking down, and Jayne couldn’t explain what happened next.
He remembered dropping his duffle and stalking over towards the pair, jerking back the man by his collar and head-butting him. She gasped in shock and stared at him for a full second before grinning brightly at him. He dropped Bester to the ground and rubbed a hand across his face. She leaned forward and pecked him on the cheek.
“Aw, hell.” Now he’d done lost all his intimidatin’ manner.
