fff, in a hurry

so it's not done, due to shows all weekend and trying to prep for the audition i'm currently running out the door to get to, but i wanted to at least post what i have. and if i get back from my audition before deadline, maybe i'll finish it. i promise i won't peek @ anybody else's until i'm done, or establish that i can't meet deadline...
big-up jj for getting us together:

Arm aching...arm-and-a-half, the voice in her head reminded her, ungently, as she shook out the cramp in her right and tried to ignore the soreness in what should’ve been her left. they ached for different reasons, but they both ached.
she stood under the spray, resting and considering whether there might be a better way. in the months since coming home she hadn’t yet figured out how to handle this previously-simple task, and instead faced agony once a week. it was a strain that usually left her crying into the clouds of water and steam so nobody could see, as if there might ever be company for her baths.
adjustment was about as hard as she’d expected – easier some days, worse others – but this was one of those still-unmanageable personal needs that made bad days.


walk good.

sorry- now that i'm working on the current fff, all i can remember is a mental picture of a 1-armed woman trying to shave the full-arm-pit...
