Wow this is such a brilliant story, I can't wait to read more of it. You're covering such a sensitive topic so well and the relationship between Jane and Lisbon is really touching. I like the flashbacks to Jane's past as well and am rally looking forward to the story developing further. Brilliant job! xxx

Interesting chapter. I like the logic of Jane liking his edge-free round teacups because they are not a potential self-harming implement. But having OCD myself and met many fellow suffers, Jane doesn't strike mr as the OCD type, but thats just my opinion. I see the intricacies of his tea-making ritual more a reflection of his fussiness and a shout-out to Sherlock Holmes. Beautifully concise writing.

That was an amazing chapter. I had to breathe deep when it was over and try to relax my stomach muscles after her partial description of what happened. I'm glad she's started talking, but I know it's just the start. One step forward and two (or three) steps back. Your descriptions of their gestures and expressions and body language are great, too. Really helps me visualize. Thanks for updating.

Your empathy and understanding of the subtle nuances of emotional and physical trauma is refreshing. Either you have experienced this or have helped people through crises. My guess is you are unwittingly helping many who read this to better understand their own responses to similar situations. Bravo! Keep writing.

How good is this chapter! Its heartbreaking when Lisbon reveals to Jane that she kept thinking "Jane's coming" while she was being attacked, while he thought she had just turned off her phone because she had realised how late it was.
At least she's begining to talk about it, can't wait to read the next installment.

This chapter was so sad. I cried for Lisbon. Poor Woman. :-( It's so hard breaking to hear what she went through and that she finaly gave up. And that Jane feels this rage and guilt... So glad he is there for her and won't let her alone. I love the details you put into the story. It only makes it more real. Although sad, it is really good.

You are doing such an amazing job on this story! You write about such a difficult subject with real grace. Very heartfelt. I'm looking forward to your next chapter.

Wow! I can't even imagine how it must feel to wait so long to take a shower/bath. It must feel horrible.
I agree, the aftermath is most definitely the hardest aspect of the recovery for most people.
I also agree that there are so many stories about the subject, where the time-frame of the recovery process doesn't make any sense at all. But obviously not everybody understands what it's like.
About the difference between strangers and somebody that's not a stranger, I can't really say. What I do know is that with strangers it can be extremely brutal.

I agree with you and really appreciate the details you put in. It makes it all feel so real that I can actually picture everything in my mind and I feel what they feel. This chapter was great because you told us part of her past and how she feels. I also liked Jane's reaction. The whole thing is really realistic and it keeps them IC. Great job.

Awesome! I LOVE the flashback in chapter 4! Can't wait for more!
