River's lying on her back on a table, her feet against the wall. She's watching the room upside-down.

It's very comfortable.

Apparently.

It also offers a convenient vantage point for seeing under furniture.

A coyote blinks yellow eyes at her from under a nearby table.

"Thank you for the condoms," the coyote says. "Very insightful of you."

"Lychee is an interesting flavor." It's impossible to tell if she's referring to the gum or the condoms. They were from the future, after all.

"I am sorry to bring you the bad news, we were divorced. By ghosts."

"I was not married to anyone else at the time!" Coyote protests. "Just as well."

Beat.

"But if you are concerned about such things, I know a lovely place in Las Vegas where we could remedy that."

"Epimetheus and I did not get one. But that was more because of Lilly than lack of trying." Coyote likes to test drive her acquaintances before she marries them, usually!

"Besides. You don't marry everyone you court. So why should you court everyone you marry?"

"I have been accused of such things before.

"So, if you have not been getting married, what have you been doing, River?"

"Informative," Coyote snorts. She rolls over on her back, and then it's a woman staring back at River. If they are both upside down now, do they look right-side up to each other?

"Boyfriend? Girlfriend?" She is working down from 'married'.

"You are a lovely girl, you are lucky I do not try and matchmake you. And that you are not a robot, I know someone who needs a robot girlfriend."

Coyote sits up.

"I know. I could smell it, if you were. Unless you were a very sneaky machine. Also, you should not look so dubious, I am an expert."

"I do not have this nose to keep to myself, River. It is a glorious nose, it deserves to go where it likes."

The coyote leaps up onto the table and starts sniffing her feet.

"Not the nose, no. But you know what they say about people with big noses." Usually it's MEN with big noses 'they' say things about, but you have to be inclusive in Milliways. And when talking to Coyote.

Luckily Raven is not around to comment on the eyeball juggling incident.

Hahahaha, she said 'buttress'.

"Not quite. But why don't you trust me?"

"You have wounded me deeply, River. I may never forgive you if you do not make it up to me." Considering she is sniffing River's ankles now, this may be taken as an empty threat.

"Most certainly. You are lucky you are not my robot girlfriend, then you would see."

Her ear twitches.

"Figure of speech," Coyote assures her. "Robots do not usually have ticklish toes. Girlfriends occasionally do. Humans are funny like that."

Coyote tilts her head, pretty obviously trying to remember how many girlfriends (wives, one night stands, etc.) were ticklish.

She blinks. "Mechanoreceptors? Dear, I thought you were trying to convince me that you are not a robot. Try harder."

"Perhaps you are clever enough to trick it. You are tricky, I assume? I like you, so you must be. Should I ask your friends? 'Has River been acting suspicious lately? Find any spare gears about?"

Coyote knows it's not true. To be human is to have masks, even if someone else cracked most of them for you, like someone did to this girl. She knows what it is, if not how or why or who did this to her.

"Who should Coyote ask? Who are River's friends in Milliways? Besides me." She sits down, tucking her tail around her own feet.

"You are almost as cryptic as Raven sometimes, sweet River. It pleases me that you have friends, but how should I remember them, even when they are not?"

Perhaps she is being thick on purpose. Hard to say.

There is a woman sitting across from her again. Something about that look makes Coyote tilt her chin up and meet River's gaze head on.

"I do not currently congress with the dead." Her last ghost rarely shows himself, and she is fine with ignoring him.

Anything else is not worth mentioning.

"Do you, then?" It's a snap now, Coyote's mood swiftly changing to sullen.

Coyote stands, slamming her hands down on the table and staring at River.

"You saw her?"

Coyote had by now, convinced herself it was a dream.

She tears herself away from the table and heads quickly toward the door.
