Disclaimer: Not mine.

She stands poised on the sidewalk, eyes locked on the porcelain-skinned mannequin in the big store window, and the vivid crimson dress slipped over it, the contrast so riveting that she cannot look away. Kaylee says, "Gee, that's pretty, innit, River?" It would look striking on her, she thinks as Kaylee leads her away, and longs for the day that she'll be a woman again.
