Anita doesn’t have enough hot water for a bath, but complains that the bathroom is so hot that it’s probably for the best. If you’re hot, why not have a cool shower?
WHY MUST YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT EVERYTHING.
WHY CAN’T YOU FUNCTION AS A PERSON.
The door is kicked in while Anita is in the bath. There is a woman with muscles and hair ‘like a veil’.
She wore a jean jacket with no sleeves.
No, she didn’t. Unless her jacket has been made of a pair of jeans, she is not wearing a ‘jean jacket’. You see, ‘jeans’ are a specific type of trousers. They are made of denim, a cotton twill fabric. You say ‘denim jacket’ because that’s the fabric it’s made from.
ETA: In America, in the 80s, denim jackets were called jean jackets. So I’m the dumbass here.
Anita is not impressed by this woman.
Under other circumstances, I’d have been sort of disdainful.
Why? Of course, I’m being silly. If this had been a man, Anita would have been scared because men are powerful and important. Women are not, so Anita immediately discounts them. If a man had written this, everyone would have decried him as sexist. But, nope, because LKH is female, she can’t possibly be sexist.
Except that she can, and she is.
Anyway, this ‘punk’ (HA HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH MY PARENTS ARE PUNK ROCKERS AND THIS WOMAN IS NO PUNK ROCKER) has a lot of POWER and this is all very overpowering. Anita is aiming a gun at her, because of course she brought a gun into her bath. Then two men arrive to hold her back, getting a good stare at Anita’s naked body. The woman is ‘Roxanne’, and she is told Anita will surely kill her.
Roxanne still goes into the room. I like Roxanne.
Anita fires at her head. The bullet buries itself into the wall, because Anita doesn’t give a shit about damaging Marianne’s home.
I kept my eyes on Roxanne. She had stopped moving. I had the barrel of the gun sighted in the middle of that pretty face. It took a second or two of staring to realize that under all the tattoos, the funky hair, and the power, she was pretty. It was a traditional, girl-next-door pretty. Maybe it was the reasons for the tattoo and the hair. When nature makes you wholesome, there are ways to cheat.
Are you saying that I dye my hair, got my nose pierced, got a tattoo, because I hate the fact that I just look sort of…. generic and that is bad? That I’m not naturally ‘exotic’ and super wonderful like Anita?
I am actually so angry that… I am just so angry. For all the darkity dark goffic crap of this series, this…. this is just…. I just feel such waves of resentment coming off it.
Plus, fuck off Hamilton, punk women are gorgeous. Fuck your face.
Roxanne is surprised that Anita would really kill her. Anita says she didn’t because Roxanne’s lupa for Verne’s pack and this would cause a lot problems. So, basically, Anita would like to kill her if she wasn’t going to get into immediate trouble for it.
What a nice woman.
Marianne hurries in to drag Roxanne for tea, before Anita goes mental and decides to shoot Roxanne anyway. Cherry offers to stand watch outside the door.
Was Roxanne a bad guy or just a psycho? I was betting on the latter.
Roxanne isn’t the one…. fuck it. Anita, you haven’t got any right in calling someone else a ‘psycho’. You are entirely psychotic.
