realmrsreynolds: (grinny grin grin)
The vidscreen in Sallie's kitchen has a chirping noise completely distinct from any of the random oven beepings and doorbells ringing in her house; Jack's able to call to her to answer it after the first chirp.

"You busy?" Mal smiles at his mother through the screen.

"No, it's just me and Jack, we're about to make pumpki -- "

"Good." Mal clicks off the feed from his end before Sallie can react, and she's standing back in the kitchen before the screen chirps at her again.

"What?" Sallie asks, confused more than frustrated.

"Forgot to ask you to open the back o' the pantry, Ma." And Mal clicks off the feed from Serenity again. Sallie is dumbfounded for precisely twenty seconds, before a bright grin crosses her face and deepends the well-earned wrinkles near the corners of her eyes. She walks into the pantry, and two sets of footfalls are heard coming out of it again.

"Think I've missed enough, don't you?" Mal asks quietly.

Sallie can't help but agree.
