Short Story Editing

It's a 2800 words sci-fi short story. Here's what needs to be done:

1. Story has to be compressed to 2500 words limit.

2. The story seems quite amateur at certain points (excessive use of adjectives, over-description of bodily movements etc). I need someone who really understands short story writing and can give it a mature, professional look.
