On the kitchen side of the trailer door, there's a whiteboard. It has a few sections -- the circus schedule, an ever-changing to-do list, and frequent doodles of ladybugs or puppies in the corners -- but the middle one is a list of House Rules. Most of them are in Catherine's handwriting, and all of them have been there long enough to have dried solidly to the whiteboard.

Trowa fills the coffeemaker with grounds and water, and pushes the button. Then he wets a corner of a dishtowel, and goes to the board.

A certain amount of careful work later, the sentence about Lucille is gone. (Lucille is a perfectly nice girl, whom Trowa has never had any interest in, and in any case she left the circus a year and a half ago. That isn't precisely the point.)

Trowa tosses the dishtowel in the laundry bin -- it was time to do so anyway -- and replaces it with a new one, and goes back to the coffeemaker. It's finished brewing.

The next day, Cathy's making a change to the schedule when she feels like there's something...off.

She steps back to look at the board for a long moment, and then notices the missing sentence.

"Trooo-wa," she calls, from the front room. His door's open, so whatever.

Cathy rolls her eyes, caps the marker and sets it on top of the whiteboard before going to lean against the doorway.

"You're leaving secret messages again," she accuses, gently.

AKA: explain, mister.

"Well, yeah, she's not been here for--waiiiit a minute," Cathy leans in further, "do you meant 'not relevant' or 'not relevant'?"

"Trowa!" Cathy squeaks, coming into his room and flopping on his bed,tucking her feet up and putting her elbows up on her knees. "Irrelevant how?"

"Who??" Cathy squeaks, before forcing her voice back into normal range (it's still at about three times normal spoken speed). "Is it Cass? I like Cass! Ohhhh it better not be Henry that would just be mean and wrong, and mean--"

She breaks off, and eyes him carefully.

Normal speed, and gently suspicious: "You know better than to date Heero Yuy, right? Because I...don't think that will work out."

"Oh," Cathy replies, genuinely startled. "I didn't--huh."

"I thought he had a girlfriend," she explains, after a moment.

(I thought if he was going to ask you out he'd have done it years ago doesn't...seem appropriate.)

"Oh," she says, crushing the inane I was wondering why they weren't engaged that pops into her head. Six years is a long time to date someone; it makes sense that they broke up.

It's no secret, either, that Quatre is the one of Trowa's friends she gets along with the least. (She's never taken to anyone pulling her brother into a warzone...easily.)

She smiles, anyways, and it's sincerely fond for what it's worth. She's sitting on the edge of his bed closest to him, but she still has to reach out her leg to touch him, tapping her foot lightly against his calf. "Thanks for letting me know, dummy."

Cathy bounces up. "We're getting smoothies!" She states, finger pointed into the air declaratively. "Save your stuff, mister, and I'll get shoes on."

She ducks her head back in after she walks out, "And they're sandals so it will take like three seconds!"
