She wasn't one hundred percent certain that this idea was going to work. It hadn't been one of her better ones, as far as she was concerned, not in the least of which being because she couldn't really do a lot to help Trunks-kun with it.

However, she was more than willing to admit that she had definitely underestimated Trunks-kun's strength. Even if he had admitted to having lost some of it, what was still there was--frankly--very impressive.

Her idea had been to rearrange the ground floor of their home into something of a maze. Once they were done, they would be able to get through it easily enough, but it might slow down anyone that was after them. The idea was to have there be a path through the maze but hidden, invisible, in case someone besides the two of them were looking.

Most of the stuff that was down in the lobby area was pretty huge blocks of what looked like concrete. Obviously it had fallen from one of the floors above it but below the floor they were staying on. There was even some debris scattered around; they had managed to score an intact and working crank lantern, which could come in handy later. There was some smaller stuff and she was handling that decently well on her own, but that left the larger material for Trunks-kun. And honestly? He was doing decently well also.

She couldn't decide. Was she having better ideas now by being forced to think harder and better... or was she still just so used to all her ideas being shot down in favor of Ami-chan's and Rei-chan's and everyone else's admittedly better ones?

Either way, she could get spoiled quickly with having worthwhile ideas.

Every so often, they called a break, either to rest or check the look of the maze from various points in the room or, eventually, to have a late lunch. It had felt late anyway, but there was no telling the time without clocks.

A few times during the morning, however, they had also stopped because there were sounds just outside the mostly hidden doorway. In those times, they had both fallen silent, and Trunks-kun had positioned himself between the rest of the room and the doorway in nearly completely silence. She could almost start to hate having to be protected all the time, but they had already established that, without being able to transform, she wasn't much good in a fight.

A cynical part of her mind, a part that sounded very much like Rei-chan, spoke up to remind her that, even when she was transformed, she wasn't that good in a fight.

Each time, the noises had moved on eventually, though a couple of them had been markedly persistent. After a few moments, they had been able to breathe a sigh of relief and get back to work. Thankfully, once the morning was over, the break in attempts had ceased; she didn't want to speculate too much on that.

Still, that was why they were working on this little invisible pathway. It would be better than nothing, when it came time to use it. That time would come. Of that, she was certain.

Whoops, I knew I was forgetting something yesterday. Shame on me. There will still be a chapter tomorrow.

See you then!
