Adventures in Cooking. (tag Sadie)

Yes, the Captain is cooking. Try not to faint. Cooking as in the galley is smelling rather like burnt cabbage and cursing can be heard mumbled as the slamming of the pot lids gets louder. (Sorry Sadie)

We are sure he'll calm down if she enters the galley.

The pot starts to boil over....

Ok, make that a Maybe.....


She's being bullied by the cat again, nearly tripping as he nips at her heels and pushes her around. "Stop! Pug! Stop!"

Then her head snaps around and she steps on Pug in her haste to get that pot off the cooker. Of course that results in a yelp and the pot going in the sink, accompanied by a word she's heard Jayne say and that she would never say before.
Mal's cursing really just grows louder at this point. "Gorram CAT!" he states grabbing a towel and starting to clean up the mess. Then he blinks and looks over at Sadie. "What did you say?" he asks raising an eyebrow.
She looks back at him, sucking on the burnt finger, then takes it out and repeats herself innocently.

Pug twitches his tail and stalks out, looking offended unto death. Worm butts for Mal's bed....
Ok, this was getting weird....

Mal blinks again and takes Sadie's hand absently and turns on the cold water to run her burnt finger under it.

"So, when did ya start usin' words that ya used t'frown at me an' Jayne fer usin'?"
She frowns, eyes showing a fear that wasn't ever there before. "Did? Um... I did?"
Ok, now it's weird.

"Sadie? You feelin' alright, Hin de." he asks turning of the water and moving to wrap up her finger in a wet towel.
Lower lip caught between the teeth as she looks down with embarrassemnt. "No. I forgot stuff."
Raised eyebrow. "Stuff? Like what kinda stuff?"
"Lotsa words," she said softly. "Can still pilot."
Mal gives his pilot a look. The "I need that in Captain Dummy Talk" look.

"Sadie? You tellin' me you don' remember who you are or where ya are? Just that ya know that you're th'pilot cause you c'n fly my boat?"
"Sadie," she says pointing to herself. "Or butterfly or little sister. And Serenity." She pats the counter. "Home. Remember you... just not words."
"Huh." he grunts with a shake of his head. "Wish I knew what that meant. You figure out how long this been goin' on?"
"I got hurt." She pulls her finger out of the towel and looks at it, then sticks it in her mouth again.
He moves to take her finger out of her mouth and put it under the cold water again. "Ya know how or when? Meant be important on learnin' how t'help ya."
