FIREFLY: Insatiate #1 (Inara)

This is all Kate's fault. Actually, it's all my fault, but I'm going to blame her.

Title: Insatiate #1
Author: voleuse
Fandom: Firefly
Character: Inara (/Mal)
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Summary: Whatever happens, this is.
Notes: Post-Serenity

She doesn't go back to the training house. Instead, she returns to her shuttle, and refurnishes it as they skip from planet to planet.

Through the day, she sends waves out to various contacts. She forges new alliances to make up for those Serenity has lost. She dances with River, giggles with Kaylee, and sits in silence with Zoe in the mess.

Through the day, she argues with Mal about things profound and things sundry, and looks away when the hunger comes to his eyes.

And through the night, she lies in the echo of her former splendor. She pulls the hem of her nightgown up, a slow drag of sheer fabric. She rises, shoulders and heels pressing into the mattress.

She wonders if, perhaps tonight, Mal will barge in.


A/N: Title and summary adapted from Adrienne Rich's The Floating Poem, Unnumbered:
Whatever happens with us, your body
will haunt mine -- tender, delicate
your lovemaking, like the half-curled frond
of the fiddlehead fern in forests
just washed by sun. Your traveled, generous thighs
between which my whole face has come and come --
the innocence and wisdom of the place my tongue has found there --
the live, insatiate dance of your nipples in my mouth --
your touch on me, firm, protective, searching
me out, your strong tongue and slender fingers
reaching where I have been waiting years for you
in my rose-wet cave -- whatever happens, this is.

"She rises, shoulders and heels pressing into the mattress."
