A/N: I’ve been racking my brain with the outline for the chapter but I decided to keep it short. Jane is a pretty important character, and she’s been in the back of my mind since the beginning of this fic. I am going into her backstory a little bit, and warning it is pretty dark. There is detailed mention of rape and abuse. The POV kind of changes towards the end of the chapter. Negan is still absent, but I promise he is there next chapter!
Locking the door behind me, I rested my forehead against the frame to give Jane the few seconds of privacy she needed to undress.
I glanced over my shoulder to see that she was safely hidden behind the shower curtain. My eyes then traveled down over to the dirty pile of clothes that she had left on the floor. The horrific stench caused me to scrunch up my nose, but rather than bring up the uncomfortable topic, I quietly gathered up her things and placed them in my laundry bag.
I’m sure she would be more than happy to change into something clean and fresh.
Jane showered in silence, the only sounds I could hear were her quiet sighs as she soaked in the heavenly lavender aroma that consumed the bathroom.
Even though I knew we were all limited to a certain amount of time in the shower, I decided not to rush her. I figured after everything she’s been through this time to herself seemed well deserved.
