It was cabbage night. Jayne wasn’t sure he’d ever even tasted cabbage before, but he’d been hankering for a lot of strange things in his dreams recently.
River turned her slotted spoon upside down and dug into her stew. “Post holer. For digging posts.” She grinned.
Jayne was sure it had been his blood sister sitting next to him, but there was that gorram crazy girl again. He supposed with a busted spoon like that she could hardly actually eat the food.
“Your methodology is flawed. The slotted spoon can catch the potato.”
Jayne looked up where his mother had been sitting. River’s eyes looked back at him. Hair glossy and pulled back, more meat on her bones, but River all the same.
