Post Keeping Secrets
She was a keeper of secrets. Not a vault where they remained locked away for eternity, but instead...a waystation. She would keep those secrets she unearthed, until they were wanted. And it didn't matter who wanted them. One day she would sell the souls of a nation, the next she would be selling to that nation. To her it made no concrete difference. She had no loyalty. It was the secrets she loved. The knowledge.

It had come down to that she supposed. She'd been denied knowledge of anything as a child. No idea who or what she was...she would seek any knowledge she could possess. And now...well, now she had knowledge that could mean life or death to others and it was a power she had never imagined. What it came down to was power....she didn't care if she used it...she just wanted to have it.

In a way it was innocence. She was innocent of anger, of greed, of ambition. Her driving force, corrupting as it can be, was power. Yet, in her mind, she did not use it. It was a narrow line she walked, between the innocence of non-caring and the corruption of power.

And it didn't matter how many times she was caught red-handed, as long as she lived to get caught another day. One day perhaps, she'd have been caught one too many times....but that day had yet to come and she was not going to think about it too hard.

Even if it were but a few hours, a few days away....

She had knowledge to gather....secrets to deal....
