Avatar Author: Trix Read Bio

She wanted to be a dancer but had thin ankles and was blind in her left eye.
her best friend was blind in his right eye
but this is not why they were friends
that eye went blind after they met
not as a direct result of their meeting, of course
a rod went through it
he should have died
it flew off a truck driven by a guy who could see out of both eyes
you’ve got to be able to see out of both eyes to be a truck driver
though they require little else
she wishes she was there when it happened
not the part about the rod
afterward, his first night of being blind in one eye
she loved him
more than she loved dancing
but two years and nine months later
he died from a brain aneurysm
a complication from the accident, they said
but for two years, he was her left eye.
and she, his right.
