Rechelle’s lost legs reflection

buy-now-goldShe sits quietly at the window. Her hands slowly slide to the stumps

that are the remains of once beautiful long legs. Her fingers ripple over the stitches that sew the scars and she cries. Soon Rechelle leaves for the bedroom to collect shoes and nylons remembering the feeling of them on her body. She slides her stumps into the nylons remembering how the nylon felt on her toes and then ties shoes on the nylons to once more remember how long her legs once were. Overwhelmed with sadness, she caresses the empty nylons before lowering herself to the floor to undress to her bathing suit to remind herself how beautiful her remaining body truly is.
