Kate's...not hiding.

Hiding implies not allowing yourself to be seen at all, and Kate can ensure that if she wants.

She's just...avoiding people, a little. In the shadows of a corner of the cargo area.

But if you look, you can certainly see her.

Mal always looks.

"Got a minute?"

It's a dumb question, but Kate's one of the few people Mal hasn't had a chance to talk to since he's been back.

Mal claims an ever-present crate. "Honored, I'm sure."

Dragging one leg up to cross over the other, "Didn't get a chance to say hello at you yet. Update me."

"Can't wait to meet the man," Mal offers wryly. "Claws should be new and exciting."

And yes, Mal's already heard about most other things, but it's the 'most' that worries him.

"...What do you think I'm missing, then? I've got the baby, and Mr. Tam bein' attacked."

There is that rutting hyperventilating thing for the third time in a week.

Mal's getting tired of it, and he says nothing for a long time.

"Did anyone do anything for River's birthday?" he asks finally.

"Me too -- I was told time was slower in Milliways than in Elizabeth's 'verse, so I thought that I'd beat it back here long before I actually did."

If there's a tiny 'I'm sorry for being gone so long' in there somewhere, Mal doesn't give directions on how to find it.

"We could. I might just see if she wants to go for a spacewalk again."

That might be a bit more fun for the both of them; the weightlessness and the black.

A smile that's a little truer, now, "She enjoyed it last time, I remember.

"Freaked out the doc, though."

"Not sure if he'd truly appreciate that one, really -- I'll ask 'im though."

Who knows? Things have certainly changed enough around here that it's possible.

"I know I can't help."

A useless shrug. "Makin' things right. I can try and make 'em better though. It's what I'm working on at the juncture."

"Mmmph. Thanks."

It's a start, anyway. Between Kaylee and Simon, Gabriel Tam, now Kate, Dora, and maybe things Mal doesn't even know about yet, it's a nice one, too.

"I'm off for a drink. Got some Piss lyin' about still I think."

With a capital P, of course.

"You know what? It's good to be back. What with the imminent violence, lack o' coin and disasters 'round every which way of course."

Throwing one arm around Kate's shoulder: "Though I'm pretty sure one would have to replace the liver if they drank too much.

"What? I pay attention."

Dripping with sarcasm: "Oh. Kate. You are. So kind. Remind me to name a gun after you."

Already halfway to the kitchen: "Not a bad idea, actually."
