The tips of the steel needles formed their own rhythm as she looped the strands of yarn over them and wove them together. Nonna Riganna had taught her after her parents died. It was soothing. She found herself thinking of the old gypsy woman with her scarred face and sad eyes. She never knew the story behind the scar.

“Some stories are too sad, Katherine,” she had said when Katherine asked.

Trowa had his secrets too.

/ “Trowa! Are those bullet holes?” she cried, pointing to the side of the large transport he kept shrouded with a tarp and hidden in a spare tent. /

/ “Kathy, please don’t ask me any questions. I can’t tell you.”/

/ “Trowa. . .”/

/ “Kathy, really, I /can’t/.”/

And now he had brought another young man home with him. He was so battered and bloodied she had tried to get Trowa to take him to a hospital. Trowa had quietly told her if he went to a hospital, he would die.

In the end, even though he shook his head, it was Buttons the Clown, the show’s doctor who helped bandage the young man. Trowa wouldn’t even tell her his name.

“Please, Kathy, trust me,” he begged her.

She wasn’t sure why she should, but circus folk stuck together. They were all wanderers; outcasts among the star travelers of Earth and the colonies. Someday, she hoped to hear the whole story.

“Some stories are too sad, Katherine,” said Nonna Riganna.

That was very nicely written. I really enjoy gen fic in GW. There are a lot of relationships I like to see explored that have nothing to do with romance.

Oh, I agree, and Catherine's mother/sister relationship to Trowa is one I'm being begged, whined, threatened encouraged to explore. Eh, if I only had more time. . .
