A/N: A second fill for the square Curtain/Deception

Standing at the bedroom window, Gwen stared between the curtains at the deserted streets, hating herself.

She’d lied to Rhys. Again. Told him she was working, when in reality she was here, with Owen.

What was she turning into? She kept telling her colleagues how much she loved Rhys, hated having to deceive him about the true nature of her job, but now she was doing something far worse; betraying his trust.

As much as she hated it, lying about her job was a necessary evil. But this was wrong. She knew she should stop.

She just didn’t want to.

The End


*giggles* Maybe that's Gwen's problem, she makes people cynical, lol!

Yeah, that would have been more believable than the 'I'm so caring and perfect' Gwen that we're supposed to see. Then again, I think if she'd been a journalist rather than a police constable I would have found her more believable too. Then it would make sense that she'd pry into things that are none of her business and keep investigating even after being told to stop. It would be understandable that she thought she could ignore orders instead of following the chain of command. It would even make her idiocy in Ghost Machine with the knife and in Day One with the chisel more tolerable instead of making her look clueless and incompetent from the start. I never could believe in Gwen as a police officer.
