washed stripe

6

Lazy days are not laundry days, I’ve recently learnt. Living in a dorm and having to do most things, I relied on my mother to do, has taught me that. Cooking and cleaning is not as easy as 50s housewives and home makers (as my English Language students like to call their mothers) make it seem, definitely got a new found respect for them.During my first month here I became a regular at the local konbini (convenient store) and Kura Sushi (100yen per plate, sushi restaurant/dinner-placey). I soon learnt that being lazy is expensive when my bank account had just enough money to stay open, but not enough for me to draw any. The number on the screen taunted me as my mother’s words ran through my head, “remember to budget, don’t spend it all on snacks and clothing.” Well, I’ve learnt my lesson and am proud to say it’s just over my second month here and I have not starved to death yet and my bank statements are at a healthy number. I’ve learnt how to NOT burn onions while frying them and that you have to let an egg that has been in the fridge get to about room temperature before frying it. It is now safe-ish to be around me in the kitchen. Wowuuuu! for a post that has the word “laundry” in it’s title, I haven’t talked much about my laundry skills…which are Ace if i do say so myself, I haven’t changed the colours of any of my clothes or shrunk anything yet. So I’m pretty sure I can get my adult badge around about now.
With love, M

⭐️ D.va gets home after the war is over, and after a few days of adjusting back to her regular life she decides to stream. ⭐️

⭐️ She goes to her bathroom and grabs her pink pen that she uses to do her trademarked stripes. She starts to draw them on but the lines aren’t straight and they are lopsided and each one is different sizes.⭐️

⭐️ D.va looks down at her hands just to see them shaking uncontrollably. She tries to calm down but it doesn’t stop, she feels sick and she washes the messed up stripes off. ⭐️

⭐️ After a little while she finally stop shaking as bad and she starts her stream up. Her fans are excited to see her return but they are questioning why she doesn’t have the pink triangles on. ⭐️

⭐️ She just says she didn’t have anything to do with, which is a lie. She continues the stream and forgets about the comments. ⭐️

⭐️ The next day she goes to get ready for a stream. She tries to make her stripes again and today she felt a knot in her stomach when she picked up the pen. She starts to draw the lines and today they are even worst. She isn’t even half way finished when she started crying. She’s afraid of what is wrong but then she remembers that she always wore her stripes when she was fighting. ⭐️

⭐️ She sees herself with the stripes and she can other think about the war. She thinks about her friends that were killed and her family. The stripes only bring back bad memories, but she is afraid because that’s apart of her brand. She pushes through and draws them on even though she doesn’t want too.⭐️

⭐️ she starts to stream and the chat talks about how bad they look and that she didn’t even try. She needed the stream early that night ⭐️
