It's late afternoon. The first show is at 6:00 -- 1800, Trowa still thinks of it really, but the translation is easy -- and most of the circus is making early dinners or otherwise enjoying the downtime before they have to get ready.

Trowa opens the door from Milliways into the trailer he shares with Cathy, and lets X follow him through.

It's a narrow room, combining kitchen and common room in a compact and tidy package, with doors to Trowa's room, Cathy's, and the bathroom. (And, behind them, to the outside.) It's all lived-in, in an impeccably tidy way.

X moves out of the doorway, pausing for a few seconds as she looks around.

Once the exits are marked, furniture locations determined, scents absorbed, and the rules of the house read, she looks over at Trowa.

Then she tilts her head very slightly.

Now what?

(Surely he has a plan.)

"Okay," X says, nodding once.

Then she takes a few steps forward, pausing on the far side of the sofa and looking back at Trowa.

"It would be good to explore."

That last word sounds subbed-in.

Because it was. For reconnaissance.

Who knows who might be listening in?

She absorbs that.

Silently.

Then --

"It is better to call me Laura? Here."

Clarification is important.

And details make the op.

cutting_edgex23: ([NYX] alone and palely loitering NOT)
From: [personal profile] cutting_edgex23
She hesitates fractionally, studying Trowa with a careful and discerning eye.

Then --

"X is better. For me."

Beat.

"If it will not be problematic."

That is for clarification, too. And possibly they will dismiss her as a teenager in her rebellious phase. Or a young adult with pretensions.

(X has met those before. Both kinds.)

Date: 2010-08-16 09:31 pm (UTC)
cutting_edgex23: ([TX] sniff)
From: [personal profile] cutting_edgex23
This time X does not bother nodding in return, just lets her attention drift from Trowa and toward the view from his window.

Her head tilts ever-so-slightly as she listens.

It is almost as powerful a tool as scent.

She makes use of them both.

X shakes her head, just once.

Though her expression suggests she is still listening to what is going on outside.

(This is unlikely to change anytime soon.)

"There are animals. Here."

She hesitates --

And stays silent.

"There are cats?"

X's attention sharpens. Fractionally.

(In this respect, among others, she is predictable.)

"Besides the lions."

Elephants are irrelevant.

Date: 2010-08-17 03:37 am (UTC)
cutting_edgex23: (Default)
From: [personal profile] cutting_edgex23
"They are constrictors?"

X is curious.

And -- at least for a few seconds -- she sounds it, too.

"The snakes."

Date: 2010-08-17 03:42 am (UTC)
cutting_edgex23: (Default)
From: [personal profile] cutting_edgex23
"Oh."

X absorbs that.

"You like them? The snakes."

And the dog. Of course.

(X does not need to ask about the lions.)

Date: 2010-08-17 03:56 am (UTC)
cutting_edgex23: (Default)
From: [personal profile] cutting_edgex23
"Okay."

She is silent for a few seconds, listening to the sounds of the circus again.

Then, with quick sideways glance at Trowa, she shifts position and starts heading for the door --

Slowly enough that she will be easy to overtake.

"Bodyguard," X says, succinctly.

"It is a more efficient skill set."

And this way she does not have to know procedures.

Helpful!

X does not squint. She does, however, take a series of brief looks around.

Gaping like a tourist is not in her toolbox. She has no plans to put it in, either. (Especially not here.)

There are places Trowa likes to go? Or likes to show off?

It is difficult to know, offhand. And X is terrible at guessing.

cutting_edgex23: (Default)
From: [personal profile] cutting_edgex23
X meets the looks as she passes, holding them for a moment or two before looking away. It is not meant to be dismissal.

She notes which of them move like people with combat skills, which could overpower her at close range, and which may (or may not) regard Trowa with surety.

A larger mental database is always better.

Always.
