A/N: This is a set of drabbles based off my fic "Shadowed Passions"; I used these drabbles to help me get out of my writer's block. Each drabble is a different character from SP, and these drabbles generally look at their views/emotions on the main characters Roald and Shinko.
Disclaimer: All is Tamora Pierce's, except Nelle who is my own character.
Dedication: To Anya, who owns the bunny behind this, and who constantly pesters me for more Roald and Shinko and Nelle.
And yes, the way you look at me. Feat. Nelle.
There's that strained question in your face now: does she know, does she know? Yes, I know.
I pick up your tray, my heart constricting: you haven't eaten your breakfast again.
I risk a look at you through my eyelashes. You still look troubled, as well you should. I know. I know your secrets. You eat very lightly; you sleep even less. You sit in this little box room, working the flesh off your fingers, trying to hide away from everything.
And yes, the way you look at me. How could I miss that? That, and how troubled you are by your own thoughts. I know what you're thinking: you're a Prince, with a wife; you shouldn't be attracted to a serving maid.
And you wonder why I'm unsettled around you.
Please review. Shinko is next.
