Not Working Out
Title: Not Working Out
Characters/Pairings: Quistis, Adopted Mother
Team: Balamb G
Word Count: 100
Author's Notes: Behind a cut-code for abuse (it's a slap) but it might have triggers for some.
Quistis left the family who adopted her but reasons, as far as I know, weren't given. This is one of the many that went through my head. I can see that having something like this happen, might feel as if it were a mark against her in some reason and that she would keep it close to the vest.
"Things will not be working out for us, girl."
The small frame of her adopted mother shook with anger and her face was pinched tight, making once softened features looked like hard slashes on her face.
Quistis looked up from where she landed, hair now unpinned and her hand resting against the burn from the sudden slap. The blonde tried to hide the evident confusion that was surely wrot on her face. The attack came seemingly unprovoked, and there was a bitter feeling in her gut that this wouldn't be the first or last time something like this would happen.
