Chapter 2 – She knows

Disclaimer: All right and profits go the Joss the boss.

A/N: This chapter is done from Annabelle's POV.

"My name is Annabelle Marie Cobb and Jayne Cobb is my father. Is that reason enough for you?"

She knew. The minuet she said the words, she knew. The man standing before her was her father. The look on his face said it all. The shock, suspicion, and then; strangely enough, acceptance.

"You're Jayne Cobb. You're my father."

It wasn't a question; it was a statement of fact. There was no denying it; all you had to do was look at their eyes. They were the same ice blue, and looking closer you could see that they were father and daughter.

At that time the music that had been playing in the background cut off abruptly. Jayne then yelled "Everyone gets the gorram out we're closing early! " and when it looked like they might take issue with that Annabelle saw take gun out from under the bar that, going from stories she had heard, could only be Vera and yell "NOW!"

One look at the ex-merc and the gun he was holding and the drunks quickly sobered up and the whores hurried up to the third floor and quickly closed the doors to their rooms. The only one who had stayed was Annabelle. She watched as the man she had wanted to meet her whole life put Vera back beneath the bar and come back up with a bottle of whiskey.

"Girl, you want that shot a whisky now?" he asked as he grabbed two glasses and sat down at a table.

"I thought I was too young to have any? And my name is Annabelle, not girl." She said as she sat down across from him.

"Well I need a drink, and since I ain't never liked drinking alone, and you're the only one here, you just got old enough."

A/N: Sorry about the short chapter. I wanted to get something posted, but I have to go to an orientation for my school. Hope you liked it. Oh and please review.
