More often than not, the truth will get you into trouble, especially if you’re in my line of work. It’s all about the secrets, the lies...the fabric you have to weave around yourself to hide what’s really going on and protect those you care about.

Lifting that curtain can only ever bring pain...and death.

At least, more often than not, anyway.

[Classified: WITSEC clearance only]

There’s only been one time in my life when shooting straight *didn’t* get me into trouble...where it actually improved a situation, and that’s pretty much anything and everything involving my relationship with Rachel...from the day we met to the night I told her I was a freakin’ WITSEC refugee.

The lies got me in deep...but every truth I told, every secret I exposed...something about it always drew us closer. She was at my back no matter which way I turned, and I found that sharing even hidden *was* freeing. Liberating. I mean, after everything I’ve been through in my life, it was a first for me to have that unconditional trust. Someone who forgave the lies, because she understood them...who could see past the deception, because it served a higher purpose.

She let me have my secrets, even my biggest one...and in the end? It was for that reason that I couldn’t keep any from her. I didn’t *want* to keep any from her.

Guess it’s that taste of freedom...once you’ve had it? You never want to let it go.

You do realize that it took me cornering you and catching you in the act to get you to actually let me in right? Not that I'm holding that against you or anything, just making a point. A lame one, but still.

I think we both know I could have refused to let you in...let you think the worst, keep on heading into that shitstorm until I was in over my head.

But I didn't...I let you get in with me instead. ;)

Mmm... you make a good argument Mr. Grace.

Besides it wasn't that bad you know... I didn't mind getting roped into the mess with you. You make for good company in the middle of it all.

Yeah...gotta admit, so do you. Speaking of getting roped into big messes, how's that tat feeling?

That isn't quite the sort of mess I'm talking about, but since you asked...

It's healing at least. It doesn't look too bad probably just the placement annoying my skin, because apparently they haven't taken my suggestions for low rider slacks, and around the office the booty jeans aren't exactly work appropriate unless I'm in field. Which Brenda laughed when she was prepping me for Arouca next week. Apparently the tattoo is going to make me "recognizable" however I insisted that was only if they got my pants off and that wasn't an option for the targets.

Well, that and I'll have to kill the man that sees that tattoo. Y'know...just on principle.

Believe me, my tat's been giving me the same shit. Couple more days, and I'll give you some stuff you can put on it to help with the irritation...some aloe vera goop Sid gave me after my first tat, then got me a huge jar of the stuff as a present a while back. Works great on just about any kind of skin irritation.

Oh of course... I'll make sure to tell Brenda no bikini in Arouca then.

It's not that bad, I just fidget at my desk, and that's the issue. The fidgeting makes for some rather annoying waistband issues.

I don't want to know what other skin irritations you've had Mr. Grace.

Damn right...wonder if you could pull off a mumu for that assignment...

Yeah, I saw that fidgeting. Thought you were listening to your iPod or something.

Bug bites, you brat...camping trip like a year ago and those mosquitoes were fucking mutants, I swear.

I'm not sure that would really work out. I mean I could pull it off and still look good I'm sure, but as far as actually getting into the Charity Auction? Not so much. I think she's got me in some Vera Wang thing, slink-friendly of course.

Nope, no iPod this week too many thoughts running through my head to allow room for music too. So it's just the normal fidgeting.

Suuuure... uh-huh.
