Broken Vitya

My friend Vitya broke. He crossed on the green pedestrian signal, and some speeding driver launched him. Flight. That’s when Vitya broke. Happens every day here. A lot.

The adventure begins.

Passers by pulled Vitya from the street. Thigh broke diagonally. Doctors screwed him back together. He laid in an 8’ by 16’ room with three more broken people. Two weeks passed. Doctors prescribed a 66 lb. cast. It was heavy. Drove Vitya crazy. When I came over, Vitya brandished a saw. “Cut that off!” said Vitya.

Yup.

So I did. Vitya felt better, lighter. Heal Vitya, heal. By God, may he be healed.

Breaking on through to the other side!
