Straight Lines

Title: Straight Lines
Fandom: The Inside
Pairing: Mel/Rebecca (but just a little)
Rating: PG
Summary: This is my first attempt at writing fic of any kind, so bear with me.

Nothing about Rebecca is linear. Which, Mel supposes, is why she's so gifted (read disturbed). Everyone, the whole world, can see something very clearly and understand it absolutely, and Rebecca asks the stupid question. Or everyone will be completely confused, and Rebecca understands immediately.

Mel understands that what happened to Rebecca has everything to do with it. That most of Rebecca's problems (gifts)  are the result of all of the horrible things that were done to her, things that she didn't ask for and couldn't have deserved. Mel understands, has seen, that there are things you don't get over, because you can't. Mel actually knows something about that, thanks. Of course nobody's ever bothered to look so no one knows--except Web, but she doesn't want to dwell on that thought too long. And everyone assumes that Mel, cynical, chain-smoking, wise-cracking Mel, could never understand anything about Rebecca. Mel just happens to know that everyone is wrong.
