Notes: Written for firefly_15_fics. 18/6/12.

The day the sky fell, he hid in Serenity’s belly and waited. Space rocks and other odd bits and pieces shot past and caused havoc. Some bits hit Serenity, lashed against her side. Others drifted harmlessly past her. He waited and watched and prepared himself for the big ol’ piece of rock that would destroy something vital and end them all.

That big rock didn’t come.

Instead, lots of tiny ones twinkled about and roughed up Serenity til she was bruised. She groaned her discomfort and faltered a few times, but did not yield. She wouldn’t yield. She would fight to stay in the sky as long as she could. He knew this and he also knew he would do anything to keep her safe.

He was hers as much as she was his. Maybe more.

The sky was peeling away at the corners and beginning to crash around them like angry waves upon a beachfront. It was mighty fierce, tossing up his lunch a good amount. Weren’t much he could do but hold on. Serenity held on with him, and together, they waited out the storm.

They waited out the end of the universe, the end of everything, the day the sky fell.
