Pea by Benjamin Law (affectionately re-named 'Pee' by Krissy Kneen)
She suffered from the bone deformity Osteogenesis Imperfecta, and was fresh from healing a broken pelvis. Her prince was coming up the stairs for her now. She was scared. He had already broken her spine (twice) in the throes of his love, and her neck (once) from when he had taken her from behind. It had nearly paralysed her. She never understood why he had decided upon her, after the Night Of The Mattresses. But she was poor then, and foolish. She should have been grateful. A wonderful night’s sleep, she should have said. But that pea. That fucking pea.
