Removing one boot at a time. Lining them up very precisely. Removing her gloves and laying them on the dresser.
Sitting at the vanity. Taking out her supplies. Spoon and lighter and....
Watching powder melt to liquid. Feeling the heat on her skin.
Drawing it up with the needle.
Autopilot, almost. She no longer takes note of the individual steps. They blur in her mind, sometimes. This night could be any night.
Carefully tying off above her elbow.
Finding the sweet spot with the needle and gods, it's almost like sex, and sometimes it's better... she bites her lip as she feels it hit the bloodstream.
She licks the spoon.
Current total: still $1,251. C'mon, guys!
