In late 2008, 13 year old Rina was crossing a street in her home town of Red Deer, Canada. A car made a quick turn in the intersection and Rina suffered a badly broken leg. The driver of the car was a school teacher who was horribly shaken up by the accident. An ambulance transported Rina to Red Deer Regional Hospital.
Rina's parents made the decision to treat Rina's injury in conservative manner. Under conscious sedation, Rina's tibia and fibula were re-aligned, the girl was placed in a soft splint, and she spent two weeks in the hospital confined 100% of the time to her hospital bed.
Rina was sent home in a full leg cast. She wore the same cast for five months. A rubber walking heel was placed on the sole of her cast a month or so prior to the cast removal.
Rina's friend, Sky, openly admitted she was fascinated with Rina's leg cast. She loved the idea of being confined in something like a cast. And her artistic side saw the cast as a form of expression.
Skylar's infatuation with Rina's cast transcended fantasy. In the picture below, Sky rubs her leg against her best friend's casted leg.
And yes, if you haven't guessed by now, Rina and Sky are lesbians. At the age of 13, they were flirting. By the age of 16, the two women were sleeping with each other. I suppose there is not much else to do in Red Deer, Canada.
After 5 months in the full leg cast, Rina was finally placed in a smaller PTB cast.
The cast was decorated by Sky and Rina with dozens of the Legend of Zelda pictures and symbols. Both girls were huge into Zelda and into Cosplay.
Rina introduced Sky to Cosplay. Both girls were huge in the Zelda fantasy world.
In a good news/bad news scenario, Rina's leg did not heal properly. The upper and lower bone ends of her tibia are off center. And the fibula is not re-united 10 years after injury. The good news is Rina has no problems with the leg and plans no further treatment.
