Reverand Joshua Long touched her hand gently. He knew better than anyone the dilemma she was facing, for he had faced the very same demon not that long ago. He moved a little closer to her, mirroring her position as they had done so many times in the past. For a moment, he thought of all their history.

From the excitement at being chosen, Edens long hair floating as she whirled around once she saw the lists. The training school, where their already innate skills were honed until they were one of the chosen few. The teams sent out into the 'Verse to bring God's Judgement upon the Sinners. Her zeal, his compassion. His strength, her guile. The day they realized that they were the most feared assassins, and the aftermath thereof.

He blinked and a tear ran down his cheek.

The day he lost Eden, on a hillside overlooking Serenity Valley. The shock in her eyes as she was hit. The blood he could not stop. Teagan's face when she saw what damage had been done.

And then.. the moment he saw her again. Her history forgotten to her thanks to the horrific injury that left a twisted knot of scar on her temple. She'd been in love with another man then. She didn't remember Joshua, faithful Joshua. Mind you, he did not look the same then either, with his own scars etched upon his face from the reaver attack that killed Joshua Long, and created Chuy Lo.

So many memories, so much heartache. And now, here she was again, slipping into his life the way she'd done in the beginning. Seeking the silence within herself again.

He wrapped his hand around hers, and supported her weight as she leaned against him. Kynthia's eyes closed and she rested.

"Oh Bother." Said The Borg. "We've assimilated Pooh."
