[oh, look! Proper diction. With a slightly disdainful tone. In fact, it's almost not recognizable as Kaylee, except for a bit of an accent, still]

What is the meaning of some of the clothes in my closet? Peasant dresses? Overalls? I think one of the shirts has grease on it.

This isn't acceptable. There's only two dresses I can even think about being seen in.

Inara, please tell me you've got something I can borrow until the castle or the ghosts find me something appropriate?

[at the mention of Inara's name River recognizes Kaylee's voice... though it does seem a bit off]

Kaylee, I'm glad you're alright. I can't seem to find Simon anywhere, have you seen him?

[sighs.]

Why wouldn't I be all right?

No, I haven't seen him. He doesn't even remember me, so why would I bother?


It seems there's something going on with the residents here... a lot of confusion.

[lots of compassion] It's not his fault Kaylee... he's been through so much. I'm sorry he doesn't remember. I know he cared about you.

I'm not confused.

[sniffs. More disdainful than hurt.] It's his loss. I'm tired of sitting around mooning after him like some lovesick schoolgirl just to have him barely notice me, anyway--all for him to, what? Forget I even exist? I deserve better than that.

I noticed that you weren't confused, which is where the relief came into play Kaylee.

It's not just the loss though... it's everything they did too. It's a lot for all of us, and you do deserve better than that. It's just a shame that it had to be this way.

He wants to make new memories. As if I'm just going to roll my heart out for him again.

[Rather drawly and sloppy diction in her reply]

Sure. Whatever. Come get whatever you want.

[relieved sigh]

Thank you. I'll be there in just a moment.

Right, sure, take your time. Door's open.

[timeskip, and she's letting herself in, and for all that she was going to borrow Inara's clothes, actually seeing her doesn't seem to throw her.]

What's wrong with my closet? Do you think the ghosts mixed things up?

[Is flopped down on the divan in sweat pants and a tank top, all messy haired and un-made up, doodling in her journal. Her pretty Companiony wardrobe is scattered about, things draped over chairs or tossed on the bed, as though she had to dig through the closet to find something to wear and didn't bother picking up. Shoulders roll in a shrug.]

I dunno.

[is dressed in one of the pretty dresses that her closet had, hair all done, though she didn't have any makeup and that was just horrifying. makes a face at the room, and a little sound of horror.]

You're a mess. How can you treat your things like this??

[Quirks an eyebrow at her, glances around and shrugs.]

What? It's not hurting anything.

[snaps]

It's hurting the clothes, Inara.

[eyerolls]

They'll make it.

And if they get rips? Or stains? [moves, picking them up]

You are so irresponsible with your things.

[Scoffs and makes no move to help, keeps doodling on her journal.]

Not like I plan to wear the stupid things.

[bit of a frown at that, then a shrug.]

Well, then. I'll just take them off your hands, since you can't be bothered.

Playing dress up is for children.

I'm not talking about dress up, Doctor Tam. I'm talking about proper clothes so I can actually leave my room without looking like a freak.

To what? The grease? I know? I can't think how it got there....

All of it. Your entire wardrobe.

I have no idea how it got here. It must be some sort of practical joke. There are only two dresses in here even fit for wearing.

God, I know what you mean. All that's in my closet are plaid and button-up dress shirts.

I'm thinking shopping trip. Wanna come with? There's probably another girl tagging along, but hearing all these horror stories about ugly wardrobes is just depressing. Something needs to be done.

Oooh...shopping! That sounds like a dream. I'd love to come.

Fabulous! We're meeting around two. Don't be late or we're leaving without you.

Great! We're meeting just outside the castle entrance. Bring a friend if they want to come along. More the merrier, unless they're total dweebs.

I'll check with Inara, but she's being lazy lately and who knows what she'll do.
