0900, ship's time. It's an hour or so after breakfast. (At least for some. Breakfast is a do-it-yourself affair, and on hungover days Jayne doesn't tend to stumble out of his bunk until a good while later.)

It's time for River's daily meds.

This has been a daily routine for years now, so there's no real reluctance in the way she's slowly meandering towards the infirmary. All the same: it's slow.

(Simon often comes to find her, rather than her coming to the infirmary. But she's trying to be nice to Mal.)

It's an effort that's appreciated.

All the same, Mal's been in the infirmary for the past fifteen minutes.

It's just a couple of pills, Reynolds.

He still doesn't like it.

"Wèi," Mal offers to the figure he suspects is behind him in the infirmary doorway.

When Mal turns around, there are several tablets of various colors and sizes in his closed fist.

"I got everything together," he starts more awkwardly than he'd hoped. The pills get placed on the seat of the exam table-chair when Mal turns back to find some water for River to take them with.

It mostly is.

The pills get picked up again and placed in River's slight palm, with the water set in the other.

Mal is suitably impressed.

"When your brother gives me medication, it's usually in a rough-as-hell spray. I think he enjoys it, frankly."

"...Right. Great."

There goes one of Mal's more common facial expressions.

"And unless Doc left somethin' off his detailed-to-hell list -- "

Mal holds up a piece of paper. It has bullet points.

"You're done."

"Wanna beat Jayne at checkers?"

"Well I don't care what we do -- "

Mal points with both hands towards the hatch leading into (and out of) the infirmary.

" -- but we ain't doing it in here, so."

badinlatin: (nekkid smiley)

Mal nods once before barreling out the door towards the cargo bay catwalk steps.

He's so screwed.
