Jayne was in pain, and he wasnt even bothering trying to hide it.
He lay on the couch in the common room, trying desperately not to
whimper out loud.
Kaylee was sitting on the table, patting his shoulder sympathetically.
"It'll be all right, Jayne," she soothed. "I know this is tough, but
it'll all turn out shiny, you'll see!"
Jayne just buried his face back in the couch cushions and moaned. "It
just ain't fair, Kaylee!"
She patted his shoulder again. "Were't no one who could've seen this coming."
He turned to look at her incrediously. "It's GONE, Kaylee!"
"I know, I know," she said quietly, moving her hand up to his forehead.
Jayne looked over at the crazy girl, who was sitting on the floor in a
mess of tangled yarn.
"She even took apart the pom pom!"
