Mabel Warner was in her mid thirties when she attended the funeral for her father. It was the first time she had met his girlfriend. Gail Walker was ten years older than he, about her mother's age. He had a thing for older women, or they for younger men. It was not clear. Gail was missing a leg. The few days cleaning out the apartment was a life changing experience.
About the Author
Author, wife, lover, and amputee. I have been missing my left leg for years. Growing up I felt that it should not be there, and it is has been a blessing to have it gone. Today's term for this condition is BIID and in the past simply referred to as being a 'wannabe'. I am a full-time crutch user. Like my husband, I find amputees fascinating. 'Devotee' is the frequently used term. My stories have characters that mirror my life in some manner - wanted/needed to be an amputee or want to live with an amputee. I make no apology for my descriptions of these people and there is no intent to take away from the suffering of some amputees. I love feedback on the stories, but I cannot promise to reply.
