Things had been going so well, what with Simon starting to loosen up and, yes, the sex was nice. More than nice. Fabulous.

Why did Simon have to go and ruin it all?

There were appropriate and inappropriate times for a man to be thinking of his sister and having sex with his girlfriend would be an inappropriate time. Damn it, she'd been so close to orgasm too.

At least, he'd known he'd done wrong and had tried to apologize but, damn it, a girl couldn't just forgive something like that. It was worse than accidentally calling out your ex-girlfriends name.

The portal to Kaylee bunk opened with a creak that couldn't be completely fixed with oil and someone began to climb down.

Maybe it was Simon come to attempt another apology. 'Cept Simon always knocked before he let himself in, only damn person on Serenity that had enough manners to, and most everyone else just yelled down. Only one person ever came down without an announcement or an invitation.

"Hey, River," Kaylee said, laying back down. She tried a friendly smile. It wasn't River's fault that her brother was a hwoon dahn, "How's things going?"

"She is quiet today." River said carefully, as she lay down on the bed next to Kaylee.

"I'm glad to hear that."

"Simon hides a bundle of papers under his mattress, where he thinks apes don't look."

Kaylee sighed. River did tend to jump from topic to topic. Kaylee just wished the topic didn't have to be Simon.

As per usual, River continued on oblivious to those around her, "He doesn't know what he's saving for yet but she does; a band of gold for Kaylee's pretty finger." River snuggled closer, "She's always wanted a sister."
