STRESSED OUT / ✿ / OPEN

/ OOPS THIS IS RUSHED BUT I WANTED TO GET IT UP

Things have felt quieter since the raid had passed. Her arm still aches, her entire body aches, but things are a little calmer now. Easier. And in a way, Jo is more confident of herself and her abilities — in another way, she feels shattered. The violence still plays, bit by bit, and she's glad that most of Flintlock hadn't been forced to see the state of some of the people there. It makes her feel sick, that there were some people out there who could willingly do such a thing. They would have to shore up the lodge's defenses, work on things. For now, though, all Josie wants to do is feel like herself again. She'd spent a few hours sitting on her bed, looking at Ellie's bugs at her own flowers, and she remembered something that managed to light a candle in the darkness. There was one flower there that she had carried with her to Flintlock, the thin, colored metal faded but still beautiful in her eyes. So here she is now, rummaging through Flintlock's cupboards for something. Eventually she finds it, very dusty and half empty (who did this? how long has it been here?), and does her best to clean it up and out before she spins it in her hands. It's a pop can, Coca-Cola to be specific.

Most of Jo's projects require the use of certain difficult tools, but this was the first project she'd had when she was young: flowers out of a pop can. The young woman is sitting at one of the tables in their cafeteria, an old towel spread out over it. On top, she has the pop can and an assortment of tools — sheet metal cutters, gloves, sandpaper, wire, and a few pieces of paper. She has yet to start in on the actual flower. Instead, she sketches in silence, trying to find the right shape of petal for this flower. Usually she does roses, sometimes daisies, but she's looking for something different this time, she thinks.
CAN WE SPEAK IN FLOWERS?
IT WILL BE EASIER FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND
