TITLE: A Key's Shadows
FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
CHARACTERS: Lisa; Dawn Summers;
SUMMARY: Every relationship brings its secrets; especially on the Hellmouth.
A/N: This is set at some point following Dawn's conversation with Tara; no worries over spoilers here, safe to say, in the tradition of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe, that Lisa is, as yet, unaware of Dawn's true origins.
Lisa raced up to the canteen table; late, but full of enthusiasm at the thought of seeing Dawnie. They'd no classes together today, and this might be her only chance at seeing her.
She felt her optimism begin to evaporate as she took in Dawn's expression.
She'd been crying.
Breaking their rule she placed a hand on her new girlfriend's; they were still very new; they'd only just come out to themselves about it.
She wasn't certain she should worry that Dawnie didn't pull away.
When she did, it was reluctant; as if she was afraid.
Now, so was Lisa.
Goddess watch over us all,
