[After this.]

When Simon steps onto the nearly-repaired Firefly in the Milliways garage, he's carrying a heavy brown paper bag; the contents jostle against each other with the flat click of plastic.

He sets the bag down just outside the engine room, and taps with his knuckles on its open door.

Kaylee glances up -- she's in the process of rearranging drill bits, and for once there don't appear to be pieces of the engine everywhere.

"Hey, you." A little surprised.

"Up to comin' up with a new task list, 'cause I'm done with the big-event ones. So I'm takin' a minute to get a little reorganized." A slightly crooked smile. "Could even spend tonight in my own bed."
gonna_live: (shiny yes indeed)

"You're biased," she says cheerfully.
gonna_live: (if hairs be wires)

[personal profile] gonna_live 2009-12-31 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
"Yeah." She glances at him, hands stilling. "What's up?"
gonna_live: (intent)

[personal profile] gonna_live 2009-12-31 03:08 am (UTC)(link)



"...okay." She looks deeply uncertain.
gonna_live: (full stop)

Kaylee opens her mouth, and closes it.

A little shaky: "Are -- is this -- " She makes herself take a deep breath. "Are... we okay?"

[personal profile] gonna_live 2009-12-31 03:11 am (UTC)(link)
Kaylee closes her hand on his.

"Okay." A little steadier; she offers up a faint smile. "All right."

Beat.

"...meanin' what?"
gonna_live: (intent)

[personal profile] gonna_live 2009-12-31 03:13 am (UTC)(link)
Kaylee bites her lip, nods.

"I don't -- what is it you're scared of?"
gonna_live: (full stop)

[personal profile] gonna_live 2009-12-31 03:19 am (UTC)(link)
Her hand tightens reflexively on his.

"I don't know what you mean by that, but... okay."
gonna_live: (full stop)

[personal profile] gonna_live 2009-12-31 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
"Not awful, but..."

Everything about Kaylee -- expression, tone, the way she holds herself -- is radiating blank surprise.

"I thought you wanted me to go with you at the same time."
gonna_live: (intent)

[personal profile] gonna_live 2009-12-31 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
Kaylee looks around, and looks up at him. Uncertain: "I mean, she could fly right now... it's calibration left, mostly. If I was gonna collapse I would've already."

She bites her lip again. "You... really've been worried about that?"
gonna_live: (intent)

[personal profile] gonna_live 2009-12-31 03:28 am (UTC)(link)


"Oh," she says.



"I guess I don't see why you didn't think you could say something." Still -- entirely -- uncertain. "I mean, what did you think I was gonna do?"
gonna_live: (worker bee)

[personal profile] gonna_live 2009-12-31 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
...and she can't really argue against that.

(Her expression says it, too.)

Rueful: "Well. Okay." She squeezes his hand. "I just -- I still want to be gone, and I want to go with you, and I wanted to get this taken care of. And I'm sorry for makin' you worry."

(And she's aware: this is a good day, for her, and on the bad ones -- )
