Story a day: 1.1.16

Restarting this. Let's see if I can get an entry every single day of 2016.

The rules are simple. I just have to write something fictional every day. It doesn't have to be long, or short, or good, or edited, or coherent, or useful. I just need to do something.

Prompt: Every sentence has the same number of words as this one.

The others were strong or quick or smart, but not her. Small, frail, sickly--she couldn't do any of the real work. So all day she wove, until her hands cramped and ached. And hoped that whoever wore her shoes might do something great.
