Tea and Favors

Firefly drabble for Spilleta42, who requested Inara and tea
River appeared silently, barefoot, head tilted, and blurted, "I made you tea."
At Inara's open hand, River folded onto the floor like a closing lotus flower and set the makeshift tray down. Their eyes met over the unmatched cups. River gulped. Inara sipped.
River's eyes flitted away. "It's not very good. Sources disagree about water temperature, time for steeping leaves, whether to strain...and there weren't any leaves so I used ground-up protein."
Inara swallowed carefully. "It's the intent that matters."
"I came to ask...to help Simon."
"Yes?" Inara sipped the tea.
"He wants to have sex with Kaylee."
