“And probably Afghanistan, too, but Iraq’s all I know first hand. It’s like hell is down below but sometimes it pops up through the ground. That’s Iraq. Like the IED’s the perfect symbol of the whole goddamn situation. Which is what did me in.”

… from THE RIGHT SIDE:

LeAnne went over to Marci’s bed, sat beside her. She put her arm around Marci’s shoulder. They looked at Marci’s new leg together.

“It’s kind of beautiful in a way,” LeAnne said. “I mean that.”

“Some men find them sexy. At least, according to the PT lady.”

“I believe it.”

Marci nodded. “Nothing about men surprises me anymore.”

LeAnne laughed. Marci joined in. Hey! Leanne thought. Is my laugh still a party invite? She stopped at once.

Marci came back to the room, not on crutches. Instead she wore an artificial leg, black and silver, very sleek and high-tech-looking.

“Wow,” LeAnne said. “Is that the kind for running real fast?”

“Fuckin’ better be,” Marci said. She stumped over to her bed and sat down, her lips pursing.

“It hurts?”

“Like a son of a bitch, but that goes away, supposedly.” She gazed down at her feet, real and not, but both now shod in bright red sneakers.

“You got new sneaks?”

“Free. Good to know there’s free shit in this life, LeAnne. Things are looking up.”

LeAnne went over to Marci’s bed, sat beside her. She put her arm around Marci’s shoulder. They looked at Marci’s new leg together.

“It’s kind of beautiful in a way,” LeAnne said. “I mean that.”

“Some men find them sexy. At least, according to the PT lady.”

“I believe it.”

Marci nodded. “Nothing about men surprises me anymore.”

LeAnne laughed. Marci joined in. Hey! LeAnne thought. Is my laugh still a party invite? She stopped at once.
