A/N: pre-Serenity. Companion drabble to "Ain't Exactly Hidin'."
Simon knew Kaylee wanted him. It was fairly obvious. He also knew she had no idea that he wanted her just as badly, and he was glad of that. There was no way he could ever tell her, at least not while River still needed looking after. He had too many responsibilities on Serenity to let romance cloud his judgment.

He tried not to think about such things too much. But he supposed it didn't matter. Simon was used to mental torture.
