You've got some time to think about what you want to do, Simon said.

And "Whatever you decide, meimei, it's going to be okay.

It's true. All of it. But sometimes that doesn't help a hard choice.

There's a good chance that that's why River's currently stretched out on one of the catwalks, her hand curled loosely against the cold metal grating, and staring at (or through) the cargo bay's far wall.

Directly across from the catwalk River is currently draped over is the hatch to Shuttle One; the shimmer of light around it when Mal appears is more indicative of him having arrived from Milliways than having stepped through from the room he shares with Inara.

"Sleepy?" he calls to River wryly.

It's far less abstract a response than Mal was expecting, as far as River normally goes -- Serenity has her own creaks and groans that Mal finds himself listening to, in the quiet.

"Let me know when the palaver's done? I'll be in the kitchen," Mal replies pointedly, thumping his way down the staircase and disappearing through the back of the cargo bay.

It's by luck that Mal isn't startled by River's entry into the kitchen. He is moving around enough to not have his back to the hallway from the lower end of the ship for too long.

No point in waiting. Mal rips into a package of instant miso soup. "Simon and Kaylee told me about what they're planning come January."

"He said they were waiting on you to tell them what your plans were."

Mal doesn't bother with many details on his end. At this point, she doesn't need them.

"Not much to think about."

Utter lie. Just nothing useful to think about. The kettle boils and Mal adds water to his soup mix. "Simon and Kaylee are doing their plan they think they should do.

"He seems to be under the impression that you might not want to go with them."

Mal bites his lip as he mixes up the powder and water. "I can imagine.

"If you need permission, you have it. You shouldn't need it, but there it is."

"What? Don't look at me like that."

Mal's balancing the bowl in his hand, moving around the counter to the kitchen table.

"I've figured that the only way I've got to me is just...watch and wait."

"'Course you do. Didn't ever question that much."

Mal does eat some of his food before it sets cold.

"You going to be alright medicalwise, if he's doin' this?" It's an angle Mal hadn't thought of.

At least Moiraine's back.

"When did you say you'd give Simon an answer?"

"They probably would need to know sooner than later, shi a. Get you a big shiny room or some such."
