When Mal called them all into the cargo bay, Willow did not expect to see a familiar face upon entering. It took her a moment to realise what she was looking at before she screamed.
She ran past the others to hug her best friend’s sister. Dawn looked at her in shock before recovering quickly.
“Willow! I did it! I found you!”
The two started to babble, Dawn filling Willow in on her progress with portals while Willow told her about the world they were in currently.
Mal and the others couldn’t keep up with what they were saying, all except Kaylee. She was known for babbling too and so she kept up with no issues.
“Kaylee, what in gorram hell is your girl doing?”
“Your girl?” Dawn asked suddenly in a normal voice.
“Dawn Summers, meet my girlfriend Kaywinnit Lee Frye. My Kaylee,” Willow introduced her proudly.
“How did you know?” Dawn asked softly after saying hello.
“Know what?” Willow asked in confusion.
“That Tara died.”
