Kaylee brushed the back of her hand across her forehead as she finished checking to make sure everything was in working order. She stood up from the small space she’d been wedged into and stretched, straightening the cramped muscles. A small appreciative smile crept across her face as she watched Simon a few steps away tightening a bolt over his head.

They’d been working for hours in various parts of the engine room, readying Serenity for takeoff. But it was time for a break. Kaylee swept her eyes down his handsome body and sauntered over to him. It had gotten increasingly warmer while they worked so close to the various machines and he had removed his shirt a good while ago; only following her example when she’d shed her canvas vest. Various portions of his torso were smudged with grease, and his normally neat, kept hair hung over his eyes, giving him a rakishly handsome look.

When she reached out and touched his bare shoulder, he turned, giving her a smile that instantly made her weak in the knees. He dropped his arm as she stepped closer.

Their skin was covered with a light sheen of sweat and this was the last environment Simon had imagined ever giving in to his desire to kiss Kaylee. But, here they were. Circumstances had brought them to this moment and there would be no more delaying what he wanted for himself in his life.

He leaned forward and touched his lips to hers. It was just the lightest of kisses, but when she responded with all of the same pent up longing and passion that he had pushed to the back of his mind for the last few months, he groaned deeply and dropped the wrench he held, ignoring its loud clang as it struck the metal floor.

Kaylee wrapped her arm around his neck deepening their kiss and he groaned, his hand sliding around her waist and crushing her against him. This had been far too long in coming. But they were finally well enough, and comfortable enough with each other, to take this next step in their relationship. They had tiptoed around one another for eight months, and now it was time for Simon to take back part of the life that he’d given up when he’d rescued River from the academy; it was time to give into his needs and his desires.

She pulled him down onto her hammock; conveniently lying on the floor covered with pillows, and he followed willingly, unable to kiss enough of her, feel enough of her.

“Kaylee –“ he said breathlessly. A shred of propriety remained and he cringed at the thought of completing this act in such an place.

But the look of complete adoration in her eyes and the confident touch of her fingers on his skin wiped away any second thoughts. This was right. She knew it and he knew it. He cupped her head, threading his fingers through her hair. They kissed deeply until the need for air forced them to part.

He tugged her flowery top over her head as her hands worked frantically at the fastenings of his pants. There was no slow, languid touch or caress. Not this first time. Need and desire drove their hands, their mouths, as they sought to desperately touch one another, to feel alive in the wake of such agonizingly painful death.

They were dirty and sweaty but that didn’t stop their hands from sliding wondrously over one another’s bodies.

Kaylee slid his pants down just far enough to reach what she wanted and pushed him onto his back. She quickly unfastened her own pants and pushed them down her legs, the urgency in her eyes, matching the swiftness of her fingers. She only bothered to remove one boot and then swung her leg over his hips, straddling him.

He reached for her, sliding his hands around her waist and along her sides, waiting for her to show him what she wanted. He wasn’t used to such boldness but it was one of the many traits that he loved about Kaylee. Further thought was driven from his mind as she reached between them to find him more than ready.

Eager to complete the act, she wasted no time in shifting atop him and drawing him inside her in one, smooth movement.

Simon inhaled sharply at the wonderful feel of her body surrounding him, tugging at him. His hands slid around her back, pulling her down to him as they began to move.

The sound and feel of the vibrating engine encouraged the feeling of urgency. Their bodies moved as one, desperately seeking that intense intimate connection they had longed from one another for months.

Kaylee’s hands cupped his face, her fingers sliding into his hair to tug gently. She arched her hips sharply against his drawing a long, low groan from his lips. She briefly wondered if she was hurting him, sitting atop him like she was and with his still healing injury. But as she searched his face, she saw no evidence of pain; only joy.

“Oh – Kaylee –“

Any further words were silenced as her mouth came down over his, kissing him deeply. “No talkin’ doctor.”

Simon laughed breathing, “I don’t think even I could mess this up” before her mouth silenced him again. He slid his hands around her backside and she rocked against him, moaning his name. He watched the ecstasy on Kaylee’s face as she took her own pleasure from his body and gave him an equal amount in return. He wanted to see her face light up like this every day; he wanted to be the cause of that joy.

He arched his head back, his body tensing as her movements drove them both to a very fast and pleasurable release.

Kaylee collapsed against his chest, panting heavily and his arms came around her, holding her tightly until their breathing slowed. She rubbed her cheek against his chest and then pressed her lips to the damp skin, smiling widely.

“Is it all right to speak now?” Simon asked with an amused grin.

Kaylee giggled and looked up at him though heavily lidded eyes. “’Course.”

He trailed the back of his hand down her damp cheek, before dropping his fingers beneath her chin. He looked at her with such love and adoration that she trembled and neither one of them said a word as uncounted minutes passed.

Only when Kaylee could hear the voices growing closer did she leap off him and quickly slide the door closed. When she turned around, Simon had pulled up his pants and was in the middle of fastening them.

A smile spread across his face as she walked back toward him. The pants she hastily removed to complete their little interlude were still attached to one leg and they dragged behind her as she walked, giving all kinds of amusement to the smiling doctor.

Simon stood and offered Kaylee her flowery top. He glanced nervously at the small glass pane that would allow anyone waiting outside to see into the engine room and Kaylee laughed.

“Wouldn’t be the firs’ time Capn’ found me in here with –“ She trailed off, thinking that perhaps this was not the best time to bring up the last time she’d had sex in this room. She quickly pulled on her pants and fastened them just as someone knocked on the other side of the door.

Simon raised a curious eyebrow and a small grin tugged at the corner of his mouth. “Oh, I know you will be finishing that comment later.”

“Maybe,” she leaned against his bare chest and kissed him again.

“Uh – don’t you think you should, ah,” he glanced toward the door, “get that?”

“I suppose,” Kaylee wrapped her arms around his waist and embraced him tightly.

“Later,” he whispered into her ear and when she looked up at him, his eyes were bright with a mischievous gleam.

“Kaylee!” The Captain’s voice through the room and Kaylee hurried to the door.

“It’s about time, what’d ya do, fall asleep in –“ Mal cocked his head when he noticed Simon trying to blend unconvincingly into the wall. “Ah –“ he nodded and then glanced down at Kaylee’s rather rumpled clothing. “What did I tell you about – No,” he shook his head and raised his hand, “no, I’d rather not know.” He stepped back into the entryway. “We be ready on schedule?”

“Yes Capn’.” Kaylee’s bubbly smile and attitude was contagious and Mal couldn’t help but smile in return.

He glanced one more time at Simon and then Kaylee before turning around and walking back the way he came, muttering something inaudible beneath his breath.

Above them, hidden in the rafters, River’s eyes crossed. She trembled at the lingering feelings she hadn’t been able to block. She shook her head and rolled over, peering out of the small, open panel and into the engine room.

“Dirty in there, Simon. Next time, romance and satin sheets.”

Simon’s eyes widened as he glanced up at his sister, horrified at knowing what she had just witnessed.

Kaylee’s hand covered her mouth as she tried to not laugh at the horrified look on Simon’s face.

“Welcome to the family.” River said with a happy smile before disappearing into the mess of wires she had been attempting to arrange before she was so cruelly interrupted by her brother’s inability to control his hormones.
