Nothing Without Me

"You'd be nothing without me."

"Excuse me?"

"You'd be nothing without – "

"Yes, I heard that. And I think that you're terribly wrong. I know you're terribly wrong."

"Oh? Am I?"

"I was fine before I met you and I'll be fine without you should God answer my prayers and take you far, far, far, far away."

"Now, Daniel. That's just mean."

He offers a careless shrug and a smirk.

"You don't really pray for me to be out of your life, do you?"

He takes a moment to respond. "No. I don't. Vala, I'll never be nothing without you, but I'll always be stronger with you, better off."

She grins. "See? I told you so!"

"Vala! Do you want me to take that back?"

They share a look.

"I'll be good."
