Jayne’s calls to Helen had become a regular thing. In the years since he had lost his beloved mother and brother Mattie, there had been a hole in the heart he thought of as cold.
“Public Relations”. Mal had described his job many years ago. And it was accurate enough in a sarcastic way. It was Jayne’s job to look , to BE intimidating when smuggling contracts were being negotiated or when the crew was actually committing crime. Jayne had many skills, all relating to his physical prowess.
But although the average life of a Core dweller was 120 years , by 50 , a Rim rat was well into middle age. Work was harder on the Rim. It was not unusual for a world to experience famine and require emergency aid from the Core. And while living on protein bars was possible for a time. malnutrition stole years from many lives. Even the clinics that the Alliance paid Simon to run were necessary because ongoing medical care was erratic on many worlds of the Rim. Life was tough.
Jayne and Helen had been waving each other for over a year, discussing their Plan. Both had saved some money from every payday, with Helen’s being more steady and Jayne’s often more lucrative.
And they were watching for a business opportunity.
Helen did the more conventional search, looking in “commercial opportunities” on the Cortex, for the right location and the right price.
Jayne’s search was more hands-on. Whenever they made planetfall, Jayne’s personal time was taken up by visiting possibilities.
The crew just thought he was more randy than usual since the possibilities were all whorehouses. River and Kaylee were quite amazed by his apparent stamina, since he was often visiting two or three establishments in an evening.
“Nuthin here on Haven for sale, but 1 place. Dirty hows, dirty girls. No boys and wur upsyt when I asked. The clean places ar bussy & no 1 is inneresed in selin.”
“Check out the attached listing when you hit Boros. Pictures look good- they included the toilets and each crib has its own loo and sink. They show the kitchen and a street view.”
“How old were those Boros captirs? The beds is lumpy an so is the whores. Needs a lot of work before we could make the nut, nevermine achuel cashy money.”
“Nice plase here on Whitefall. Price a bit hi fr us. Belongs to an ol bitch name of Patience. She don like Serenity much. Shot Mal one time. He shot her anoter time. If we look at it, you do the talkin and ill stay away.”
“If she’s still active, it might be too risky, once she figures out who you run with. Are you looking at anything near Eavestown Docks?”
“that/s real money were talkin girl! We mite make a down paiement wit what we got, but then it’s a morrgage. Don’t want to beholden to no banks.”
“Keep in mind that if we buy in a city, we want the building to be in good shape and big enough that we could expand the business without expanding the house. If we buy someplace more pioneer like, a small house with a big property like Heart of Gold would be a good thing. Start with a few staff and build as the community grows. “
“Dockyards is my prefrince. Punters are comin in new every day. Don need to hire so much new staff for vareiti or giv raises to the old hires.”
“Gotta pay off too many cops, to my mind. Small place, you just sweeten a sheriff and maybe the deputy or the mayor. City, there are new cops on every rotation, looking for freebies. And you need the cops for fights when spacers are involved. Either they are strangers peacocking or they have long memories and resentments.”
“Are you back on Persephone soon? Take a look at this place. Not so near the Dock as you might like, but it’s a busy market. Lots of farmers coming in with crops, both retail and wholesale. The house looks to be near the wholesale produce terminal.”
“Gotta side trip to Haven. Zoe is pinin again and Mal is takin her to Washs grave. Then we gotta take Doc fer a clink on Harvest and on Bessy’s Moon. Then a pickup on Miranda.
