Re: One tuber, two tubers, three tubers, four... ((Attn: Yaranna, Kinara))


When the other didn't move away or move closer, Kinara took a couple of breaths to relax herself as she listened to Yaranna's instructions. As Kinara relaxed while still keeping all but her hands still, she nodded at the other's instructions and replied with "Cutting away, I remember that cause it just makes the most sense." Kinara fumbled a little as the tuber was repositioned, but quickly got it in the position it was being moved to. Pushing with her thumb, which was not how Kinara had been doing it before, Kinara gave a small shake of her head as she said "That just feels odd, pushing with my thumb like that." Kinara was focusing on the tuber in her hands in order to not think about the closeness of another person, and the surprising closeness of Yaranna behind her was gradually not feeling so sudden and she was more able to relax.

Kinara, having fully expected the other woman to stand beside her and guide her hands, was caught by surprise when the other stepped behind her and reached around to grasp Kinara's hands. Managing not to flinch away, Kinara wasn't able to fully prepare herself for the closeness of the position and so couldn't help the way her back straightened and her shoulders tensed up. Nodding her head to the others words, and even feeling that the nod was a little stiff, Kinara replied "Right, nothing to worry about."

"Make sure you're cutting away from your body - most accidents happen when you're trying to cut towards yourself," Yaranna instructed, not seeming to notice her stiffness as she repositioned the tuber. "Hold it firmly between your fingers and use your thumb to push the knife - you see?"
