Pretty ... pretty - chapter 3 - "Being ill"
Thursday, November 3, 2005

Third chapter of my Simon/Kaylee series. Yes people, there's some interaction here, minor as the chapter is short, but more's to come. Kaylee's sick.


AN: Yes Simon is in it. I promised. And I know this bit is very short, but I'll have more coming soon. I've just had this bad cold, I'm still a little sick, anyways, it kinda inspired me.

*** Being ill ***

Kaylee was on her back, placed under the heart of Serenity, like she was so often to be found, especially lately. It was easiest, no need for confrontations. That didn't mean she hadn't thought about it. In fact she was every day searching for the best way possible of telling him. As she was nowhere of closing in on an answer she tried to focus on replacing one of the fuel pipes that had gotten a small leak. Nothing major just a drop in an hour, but it was much better safe than sorry. Unfortunatly her view was blurred due to her running eyes, making the task harder than usual.

Simon was on his way to the engine room, it had been so long since the last time Kaylee had been by him, just to talk. He missed her. And it seemed that whenever they had a sitdown meal and he came into the room, she made up an excuse to run out of the room. She seemed always to be in a hurry to get away. He couldn't help to think that he could be the blame of that.

He could only see the lower half of her body, sticking out from under the engine and he smiled at the sight. He loved seeing her work. She cared for Serenity as if it was her baby. She listened and observed every single bit of Serenity's behaviour. And when she cried, Kaylee was there immediatly to make it better. Kiss the booboo.

He snapped himself out of his trance and bent down to see her upper half as well.

- Kaylee..., he gently called and immediatly wished he hadn't.

Startled she had taken a sharp breath, which caused her to cough madly. It simply wouldn't stop. Then she felt a rush of morning sickness and before she could get herself out from under the engine threw up, whilst continuing to cough. Worried, Simon grabbed her knees and pulled her out. He put his arm under her head and helped her tilt it sideways, so she wouldn't choke. He rubbed her back and helped her more to a sitting position. When the coughing stopped and her breathing turned to normal, he started examening her. Her forhead was warm with a slight fever, her neck was more chilled from sweat. Her eyes were glaced and red. He could tell she was to say something and then he felt her collapse against him.

When Kaylee came to, she wasn't in the engine room, nor her bunk, or the infirmary even. She was lying in Simons bed. As last thing she had remembered was fainting in his arms in the engine room, she assumed he had carried her to his room, but why *his* room? She was wrapped tightly in a couple of blankets. They smelled of him. She sighed and pulled the edges up closer to her face. Her head felt big and warm and she couldn't seem to keep herself from falling asleep.

So she did.
