Disclaimer: The sandbox belongs to RTD and the BBC. I'm just playing here, in the corner, making little sand-TARDISs.

A/N: Thanks to garpu  and several non-LJ friends (Pam, Luke, and Lois) for "Catholic-picking" this story.


We pray not to be noticed.  I’m a second shift cook; Carmela’s a food service tech.  Except for guards, we never see anyone from the upper decks.  We don’t wear our rings at work – hygiene regs – now, we hide them always.  Satan hungers to destroy love, and That Man is his servant. 

Soon, there can be no hiding.  Carmela’s getting bigger.  I pray to Our Lord and His Mother, and every saint I know.  Time speeds by.  Tomorrow is the anniversary of the Calamity. 

Carmela smiles at me.  “Another saint for our prayers, querido.  The patron of kitchen workers – Martha.”
