Chapter 1: Dan

"I have to go." I said to the young woman lying next to me. The clock on the night stand read 7:10. She stiffened and I knew she wasn't happy.

"Then what are you waiting for?" she replied coldly. I made a motion to touch her, but she threw off the covers, stood up and walked toward the bathroom. In the dim light, I couldn't help but admire her naked body, her soft back, nice curves and slender legs. A wave of desire came over me, as usual...

Staring at the ceiling, I wondered where my marriage went wrong. When I said I do six years ago, I thought it would last forever. Ashley was the love of my life then... Beautiful, sensitive, funny Ashley. But life took over. I had my career, she had hers. Before long, we stopped talking, pulled in our own world where the other had no place. We hadn't made love in two months and for the last week, I had been sleeping in the guest bedroom. We both knew the end was near, but neither she nor I wanted the be the one who would called it quits.

I had met Katherine six months ago at a cocktail party given by my firm. The old story: I saw her across a crowded room and fell hard for her. The lies had begun: late meetings, a car that wouldn't start, a business trip that took me nowhere but to Katherine's loft on the other side of town.

With a sigh, I stood up and started to get dressed. Katherine came out of the bathroom. She had been crying. "You have to leave her... I can't go on like this, I can't bear the thought of you sitting next to her, making love to...". I cut her off. "I told you, I haven't touched her in months." I said in a brutal tone. I was at the end of my rope, I couldn't take this double life anymore. "All right, I'm going home and I will tell her tonight". Katherine came to me and pressed her bare breasts against my chest. "Promise?". "I promise love." I said, looking into her eyes and kissing her gently.

In my car, I thought about what I would say to Ashley. My heart was pounding, I didn't know if I could go through with it. But I had promised Katherine... I had told her I would give her a call when it was all over. Another promise I hoped I could keep. I pulled into the driveway and saw Ashley's car. She was home early from work. I took a deep breath, got out of the car and walked toward the house. I unlocked the door and called out for her. Might as well get it over with as soon as possible.

"Dan, please Dan help me..." Ashley's voice was coming from upstairs. I bolted and ran to our bedroom where I found my wife sitting on the floor, both hands clutching her right ankle. Next to her was a chair, turned over. Tears were coming down her cheeks and she was so pale. "My God Ashley, what happened?". She bit her lips. "I was trying to change the bulb in my closet when I slipped and fell. It's my ankle, it hurts so bad..." she said between sobs.

Very gently, I removed her hands from her ankle and gasped when I saw how swollen it was. I could also see some bruising around her ankle bone. Not good, I thought, but I didn't say a word to her. I put my hand under her mid-calf and lifted her leg very slowly. I prayed to God I wasn't inflicting her more pain. "I'll take off your heel" I said.

I pulled the shoe off her silken foot and she moaned in pain. By the looks of the swelling, the bulging on one side of her ankle and the fact that she could hardly move it at all, I knew deep down inside the ankle was probably broken. I closed my eyes and refused to think about Ashley with her foot in a cast. I had always been attracted to women in leg casts, but this was not the moment to indulge in my little fetish.

"Before I take you to the hospital, I better put some ice on your ankle. I'll help you up and you can lean on me. But don't even think of putting weight on your foot, okay?". She nodded and after a bit of hesitation took my arm. She winced as she stood up on her left foot. I placed my arm around her waist and she put hers around my shoulder. "Ready?" "Yeah, I think so...". Ashley started to hop slowly, keeping her right foot in front of her. Through her sheer hose, I could clearly see her perfect painted toes and wondered what they would look like peeking out of a cast. I felt a tingle going through me...

We went down the stairs, but on the last step, Ashley almost collapsed so I took her into my arms and brought her to the couch. I slipped a throw-pillow under her injured ankle and went to the kitchen to get an ice pack. The evening was not going the way I planned... This was definitely not the moment to tell Ashley I was leaving her.

I went back to the living room and lowered the ice on my wife's ankle. She gasped as the cold plastic bag touched her limb. I glanced at my watch once or twice, wondering if Katherine was waiting by the phone, hoping I would call soon with good news.

"If you have a place to go, just say so... I can take a cab to the hospital." Ashley said in an icy tone. I felt like such a bastard thinking about my mistress when my wife was in so much pain. "I don't have to be anywhere Ash..." I answered. Fifteen minutes later, I threw away the ice and helped Ashley off the couch. The cold had soothed her throbbing pain a little. Leaning on me heavily, she started to hop again toward the front door. "Oh God, Dan, what if my ankle is broken ?" she asked. Yeah, what if her ankle was indeed broken, I thought to myself...

Chapter 2: Ashley

"How can I teach on crutches?" Just like I did not have enough problems with my life falling apart.

I frowned as I looked at my ankle, feeling foolish. Dan offered me his hand. "Need some help Ashley?" he smiled.

I ignored him, "No Dan I'm just fine but thank you."

I started hopping through the door on my good foot when the heel of my shoe caught in the door. And I fell forward to the floor.

Dan bent down to me, "Ashley are you okay?".

"Umm... I'm not sure yet Dan, are "WE" ok?" as I flexed my ankle and felt the sharp stabbing pain. I gritted my teeth not wanting to show how embarrassed I was about this mishap.

"I'm fine," I whispered as I leaned on Dan to right myself.

I had to try placing my foot on the ground, I gingerly took a step. As I did I felt my ankle give out and I was pitched forward into Dan's arms.

Dan looked at me, "You're really hurt Ash. Let me help you, be there for you."

"No honestly, I'm ..."

"I insist"

I can't let myself believe that maybe he is sincere.

I felt a soft hand on my foot. My eyes immediately dropped to my ankle. "Ash... you will need my hand, your ankle looks broken to me" as the fingers grazed up and down my ankle and proceeded up my calf. A strange sensation surged through me quickly, frightening me. My eyes met his. I still loved him. A serene feeling overtook me.

"Thank you Dan, I'm fine. I will take care of myself like I did for the last 6 months." Inhaling sharply I broke his gaze.

"OK let me help you to the car."

"Thank you "

With Dan's assistance I managed to make it to the car. I looked at Dan, "Would you drive me?"

"Sure, come on." he said.

I was concentrating on eliminating the pain from my ankle and nothing else as I proceeded into the passenger seat.

I was waiting while the physician reviewed my radiographs. I had been waiting for over four hours. I was beyond annoyed but it gave me time to think of the situation. One - I'm sure my dam ankle is broken, casts are sooo ugly. Two - What will I do in a cast and on crutches trying to teach? Three - What can I do to save my marriage? I love Dan so much.

I watched the physician walk into the room and place the x-rays on the light box.

"So Doctor, just a sprain, elastic bandage will do the trick?" I asked.

A small chuckle escaped him, "No I'm afraid you broke your ankle my dear. You can leave right after we put a cast on that ankle. You are to be off it for 8 weeks and you will need some help"

"You have to be kidding" I replied.

I notice a little smile on Dan's face while he was staring at my leg. "I will be there to help my wife all the time" Dan insisted.

"Well in that case, let's fit you with the cast and you can be on your way. One set of crutches coming up."

The doctor walked towards me and I could feel my skin crawl. "This will take just a few minute," he spoke as looked at Dan. "Why don't you wait outside?"

"No...I will stay for...moral support," Dan shot back to the doctor.

"Dan is staying," I spoke firmly but with authority. I didn't understand why Dan was so interested in me all of a sudden but I have to admit that it felt great.

The doctor lifted my leg off the table and pull a white stocking over my foot and extended inches under my knee. He took a roll of plaster from the cart and dropped it in water. He pulled the wet plaster roll, squeezed it, and began wrapping the plaster around my foot. Repeating the process time and time again. The plaster ran from the base of my toes to my knee.

Dan came beside me and squeezed my hand.

"My nurse will get you cleaned up and fitted with crutches."

Dan's helped me into a wheelchair and grabbed my crutches. "Thanks Doc, see ya around."

"Ashley you need to come back in three weeks so I can check your ankle," the physician called as he followed them out into the corridor.

"OK

doc," Dan said while having such a hard time not staring at my cast.

We exchanged warm glances as we stopped in front of the car. Dan helped me into the car and tossed the crutches into the trunk. Such a strange feeling not to be able to move my ankle at all.

He helped me out of the car and into the house, following me just a step behind as I hopped in the house on my crutches. He opened the bedroom door for me.

"I'm sorry, Dan," I whispered as I crossed the threshold

"What?"

"I've managed to burden you with this broken ankle. I know why you want to leave me." my voice was small and I spoke softly.

Dan placed a hand on my shoulder and looked deep into my eyes. "Ash, I will be here to help you and ... I should be the one apologizing."

Dan reached out a tentative hand to gently caress my cheek. I tilted my chin upward to look into his eyes. What I saw in them stunned me. The depth of his emotions was written clearly on his face. He leaned closer to me our lips were only inches apart. I could feel his warm breath and wanted desperately to crush my lips against his, to taste him. Dan closed the distance between us. My heart pounded in anticipation. I could almost feel his lips against mine.

I turned away on my crutches renewing the physical distance between us. I looked down, unable to face him. He tried to hide the hurt and confusion in his expression.

"Ash, I'm sorry, I had no right...."

"No Dan, please," I pleaded. "You don't understand, I... Are you having an affair?"

Chapter 3: Dan

On our way back to the house, I wondered if Katherine had tried to call me. I had turned off my cell phone at the hospital and I hadn't had a chance to check my messages yet. She must be furious by now... I would have a lot of explaining to do, but how could she not understand the situation? I glanced at Ashley who had closed her eyes. She winced as the car hit a bump on the road. Poor baby, she was still in a lot of pain despite the pill the doctor had given her.

I finally pulled into our driveway and retrieved Ashley's crutches from the trunk. I followed a step behind as she crutched into the house. I stared at the pure white cast which fitted my wife's lower leg perfectly. Her protruding toes looked so sexy with the red polish she had put on just the night before. I guided her to the bedroom and opened the door for her.

"I'm sorry, Dan," she whispered as she crossed the threshold

"What?"

"I've managed to burden you with this broken ankle. I know why you want to leave me." Her voice was small and she spoke softly.

"Ash, I will be here to help you and ... I should be the one apologizing."

I caressed her cheek and closed the distance between us. As I was about to taste her lips, Ashley turned away on her crutches. I tried to apologize to her. "Ash, I'm sorry, I had no right...."

"No Dan, please," she pleaded. "You don't understand, I... Are you having an affair?"

I froze. How could she suspect anything? I've always been so careful, but I guess I shouldn't have misjudged a woman's intuition. Yet, I couldn't bear to tell her the truth. This wasn't the time... Ashley had just begun to deal with the fact she had broken her ankle and she was in obvious pain. Words could be said that would hurt the both of us and do irreparable damage.

I held her gaze. "NoŚno I'm not" I said hating myself for lying to her. Again. We would talk about this when she was in a better shape. Was I really thinking of her when I made that decision or was I being a coward? I saw the hurt in Ashley's eyes and she finally turned around.

"Good night Dan" she said as she collapsed on the bed.

"Do you need any help?" I asked.

"Yes, but you're not the one who can give it to me" she told me, her eyes filled with tears.

"I could sleep here tonight in case, I don't know, you have to go to the bathroom during the night" I offered.

"I don't think so... If I have to get up, I could use these" she replied, tapping on the crutches with her hands. "That's why they gave them to me you know" she added with sarcasm.

There wasn't anything else I could do so I wished her good night and walked toward my room. I sat on the bed and checked the messages on my cell phone. Four. All from Katherine, no doubt. I dialed her number knowing she wouldn't be asleep even at this late hour.

She answered after one ring. "Where have you been?" was the first thing she said to me. "I'm so sorry Katherine, this is the first chance I got to call you." There was silence at the other end of the line. "So, she knows? How did it go?" I took a deep breath. "I didn't tell her..." I said. "What? Daniel Patrick Connelly, you promised me!" she yelled. "Listen honey, I couldn't... When I came home I was about ready to leave her, I swear to you, but something happened. I walked in to find Ashley lying on the floor with a broken ankle. I had to take her to the hospital and we just got back. This was no time to talk about divorce, believe me...".

I knew what was coming next. "Is she in a cast?" she asked. "Yes, for eight weeks" I replied. Katherine let out a faint laugh. "Then I don't have to ask you where you'll be for the next few weeks, don't I?". What could I say? Katherine knew about my attraction for casts, she had caught me one day looking at pictures of women in cast on the internet. She had been pretty understanding, even hinting that she might be interested one day to wear a rec cast. I hadn't pressed the matter but that day, I thanked God I had found such an understanding lady.

"She needs help, that's all" I said, trying to sound convincing. "Yeah, right... So now you will tell me that you haven't felt anything when you saw the beautiful Ashley in a cast? Poor helpless Ashley with a broken ankle, hobbling around on crutches... And do I have to mention her toes peeking out of the cast? Did she let you have a taste of them or are you keeping it for later?"

"OK, that's enough! Ashley is in her room and I am in mine. There is no fooling around, understood? Now can I see you tomorrow night?" I heard her cry and it broke my heart. "I'm sorry Dan... God help me but I love you so very much. What time?". "How about eight, at your place. I'll bring the wine" I said softly. "All right... Sleep well my love". "You too Katherine".

I hung up and closed my eyes. What a night this had been... I fell asleep in no time and when I woke up, the clock read 7:15. I got up to go to the bathroom and heard Ashley's voice coming from her bedroom. "Yeah, that's right Mr. Harvey, I'll be in a cast and on crutches for the next eight weeks. I just need a few days off, time to adjust you know... Yeah, I'll keep you posted. Thanks, I appreciate it" I heard her say. Mr. Harvey... She was talking to the school director, letting him know she would be staying home for a while. I tiptoed back to my room and called my boss. I told him about Ashley's broken ankle and told him I needed to work from home for a few days.

"Of course, Dan, no problem. I'm sorry to hear about Ashley's injury. How is she holding up?". "She's in a lot of pain, but I'll be doing my best to help her get through this" I replied. "Of course you will. Ashley's a special girl, you take good care of her, you hear?" Mr. Stapleton said. "I will, I promise".

Would I be able to keep this one? I hung up and got dressed without making a sound. I opened the door to make sure I would hear if Ashley needed any help and turned on the computer. I had been working for ten minutes when I heard the sound of her crutches in the hallway. She appeared in the doorway, looking lovely, her casted heel resting on her left foot.

Chapter 4

I took more pills and wobbled down the hall on my crutches.

What are you doing home?" I asked in an icy tone.

"I'll be working from home until you get back to work. You need someone to stay with you Ashley."

"Whatever... I'm going back to bed" I said

Trying to get comfortable with my cast was not that easy. The pain was leaving after all the pills but it was hard to actually sleep with part of your leg trapped in heavy plaster. Slowly I drifted back to sleep thinking about us before the affair, what could I do.

I awoke shaking off the fog from the medication that I had taken the previous night. An uncomfortable sensation in the pit of my stomach, god I need to go to the bathroom. I turned over looking for my crutches but they were not in my room.

Shit Dan, what are you doing to me

I was not going to ask for his help. I tried sliding the cast on the floor and gingerly set my broken ankle on the ground only to find that it wouldn't hold my weight so I placed it back on the bed.

"Dan..." Exasperated I yelled.

"Yes?, how are you feeling?" he asked me quietly, avoiding eye contact.

"I feel just fine but where are my crutches?" I asked with a smile.

"You left them in the leaving room last night don't you remember?" he said.

"Really? I don't remember that but can you get them for me please." What is he up, to I wondered.

I dragged myself up into a sitting position and looked at my cast covering my lower leg. Why me?

"Don't get up," he said to me. "You have to rest that poor ankle"

"Actually, Dan, I want to get up," I said, "Could you help me, please?"

He smiled at me and again stared at my broken ankle just like he would stare at my breast.

"Hello... earth to Dan... I could use a little help getting to my feet." I smiled to hide the grimace of pain from shifting my cast around too much. "Just give me my crutches."

Dan pulled back the covers and helped me up. With my crutches under my arms I made it across the bedroom to the master bath. I assured Dan that I would be fine on my own. I stared at my reflection in the mirror while I steadied myself on my crutches. A satin gown with thin straps that held the gown up, along with my ample breasts that were sheathed in the satin. Shivering abruptly, a chill came over me and I watched my nipples react to the chill, as they pressed against the fabric of the gown.

I loved my long legs and now staring at the cast that hung inches from the floor I had to admit that the doctor did a nice job to keep the shape of my lower leg. With my painted toenails I looked sexy even with the cast on.

Leaning on my crutches I made my way back to the bedroom, Dan was waiting for me.

"Anything I can help you with?" he asked.

He came over and sat next to me on the bed. He pulled me into his arms and I rested my head on his shoulder. I started to shake very slowly as I felt the tears start to sting my eyes.

He rubbed my back and said "Don't worry, I'm gonna help you".

As he held my face in his hands he tilted it up to him and kissed me softly. I returned his kiss as he very slowly laid me on the bed. He was carefull not to hit my cast.

"Dan, please . . . I can't do this . . . Not now maybe never" I said.

Dan stopped and rested his head against mine.

"How can I trust you? I need you so much but..."

A short while later, I emerged, hobbling rather painfully, on the crutches. Dan stood beside me and with one arm steadied me,

"I don't think you are ready to go down the stairs with these things yet"

"And I guess you have a better idea?" I raised an eyebrow at him, aware of the fact that I was flirting with him. I knew how much he wanted to touch and feel the cast.

"Does this qualify?" he asked as he picked me up. He carried me slowly down the stairs, sitting me down on the couch in the living room while he went back upstairs to retrieve my crutches.

I was wearing a long floral skirt, and three quarter length sleeve t-shirt. At least it covered most of the cast.

Dan said "You're not going to believe this but you look lovely in that skirt with your poor little broken ankle"

"Really? Then can you get me a pillow for my ankle"

"Of course" he shrugged.

I pulled my skirt and lifted my leg, but because of the weight of the plaster cast, it was hard so Dan grabbed my cast and put the pillow under it. He was staring at my toes and at my cast, I could see his erection building.

"Dan, can I ask you a question?"

"Sure love what?"

"You seem so interested in my cast...do you wish that Katherine was in the cast and not me?" I said.

"I told you, there is nothing between me and Katherine"

I looked into Dan's eyes.

"Help me please"

He stood up, helped me to my feet and waited for me to get settled on my crutches

"I'll be fine Dan. Don't stay here if you don't want to." With my cast ahead of me I moved away as quickly as my crutches would let me.

Chapter 5

I felt bad lying to Ashley again when she asked me if I would prefer it was Katherine wearing the leg cast. How did she know about Katherine anyway, I wondered. Then it came back to me... Ashley had stopped by my office a few weeks ago and Katherine was there to see me. I had always wondered how long Ash had been standing in the doorway that day and now I had a feeling she heard more than I thought...

I was so torn inside. On one hand, I felt a new attraction to Ashley, but I had no idea if it had something to do with her cast. When I had slipped a pillow under her broken ankle, I had to restrain myself from stroking her protruding toes. They looked so sexy sticking out of the white plaster. I had a meeting with Katherine tonight and I knew she would want some answers.

The day went by slowly. I wasn't used to work from home and it seemed I was watching the clock more often. I helped Ashley get around even if it was obvious she didn't want my help. Poor helpless Ashley... She had no idea how aroused I was watching her hobble on her crutches, her casted foot hanging above the floor.

I made her lunch and brought it to her bedroom. She was resting and reading James Patterson's latest novel. Her casted foot was propped up on a pillow.

"I'm not hungry" she said without even taking her eyes off her book.

"Then I'll leave it on the nightstand where you can reach it. If you're hungry later, you can have a bite without getting up. Remember what the doctor said, Ash, you really have to rest your ankle during the first days" I explained.

"Why are you so worried about me all of a sudden? You've been trying to avoid me for the last six months and now that I broke my ankle, you're all over me. Are you feeling guilty about something?"

I lowered my gaze. "No, I'm not. But you need help, Ash, whether you like it or not. The next eight weeks won't be easy for you, with the cast and crutches and I just thought I would make this unpleasant experience a little more bearable, that's all."

She looked at me for a few seconds, then went back to her book. "Whatever..."

I went back to work and stayed in my office for the rest of the afternoon. When I stopped by Ashley's room around five, I found her asleep. Poor baby, she was so exhausted from her previous sleepless night. She hadn't said a word, but I had guessed that the pain in her ankle must have kept her awake. I pulled the cover over her shoulders and kissed her forehead.

I ate quickly and wrote a message to Ashley saying I had to go out for a while. I tiptoed inside her bedroom and put the note next to the empy plate. At least she had eaten something... I went outside and got into my car. Twenty minutes later, I was knocking on Katherine's door.

"Hi baby..." She answered the door wearing only her lacy bra and panties. My desire for her came back in full force and the next thing I knew, I was carrying her in her bedroom. She undressed me and saw that I was already erect... We kissed and I didn't waste any time entering her. In the middle of our lovemaking, I imagined myself making love to Ashley while she was in her cast. At first, I would kiss and suck on her casted toes and then I would stroke her hard white cast. Just the thought of caressing Asley's toes made me shiver with pleasure.

"Baby, you are on fire tonight" Katherine said once it was over. We were both panting and sweating. If she only knew what I was thinking about when I was inside her...

"How's Ashley ?".

Surprised, I turned to face her.

"She's OK, I guess. She's in pain and not moving around a lot. She took a few days off in order to get used to the cast and crutches".

"Speaking of that... You must have a hard time keeping your eyes off that cast. Does she know about your little fetish?"

"No, she doesn't. In fact, you're the only one who knows and I'd like to keep it that way."

I hadn't answered her first question and yet, I knew it was the most important one...

"You know, I'm a pretty understanding woman so I will give you some time with Ashley, you know, until she can manage on her own. But don't take too long because if you can't tell her it's over, I'll pay her a little visit myself" she said in a tone that scared the shit out of me. I knew she meant it...

I sighed. "I will talk to her, I promise."

"Don't promise this time, Dan, just do it."

I took a shower before leaving Katherine's house and drove back home, lost in my thoughts. When I walked inside the house, I heard Ashley talking on the phone. I went upstairs and entered her room just as she was hanging up.

"Did you have a nice business meeting?" she asked with saracsm in her voice.

"It was all right. I didn't want to wake you so that's why I left the note. How's your ankle?"

"Painful and wrapped in heavy plaster. I'm having a ball, can't you tell?"

"Ash, I know breaking an ankle is not much fun and I promise you time will fly. Before you know it, you'll be out of the cast and back on your own two feet."

From the corner of my eyes, I could see she was wiggling her casted toes. God, if she knew what that cast was doing to me... It shaped her lower leg perfectly, the way only plaster could do it. Fiberglass casts weren't as sexy as a pure white plaster cast.

"Are you hungry?" I asked her.

"A bit" she said. I knew she wouldn't ask for my help so I volunteered to bring her milk and cookies.

"I'll go downstairs, if you don't mind. I'm already sick of this bed" she said as she grabbed her crutches. She stood up slowly and hobbled outside the room. I followed her and she didn't say anything when I took her crutches and offered to help her down the stairs.

She put her arm across my shoulders and hopped on each step. She kept her pretty casted foot in front of her. What an incredible sight, I thought my eyes riveted on her painted toes. She resumed her crutching downstairs and I led her to the kitchen. She sat at the table and I brought an extra chair in front of her so she could prop up her cast. I poured her a glass of milk and opened a new bag of chocolate cookies, her favorite.

She smiled sadly. "It's almost like old time, but we both know nothing is the same, don't we?"

"Where did we go wrong, Ash?" I asked.

She shook her head. "I don't know and I have no idea how to fix it..."

I watched her eat and we didn't say another word until I helped her upstairs.

Chapter 6

While I was making my way up the stairs I turned around and said. "You want to try to fix this Dan?...Let's start by going to professor Miller little soiree tonight with me."

"Sure Ash I would love to, you know that."

"Okay, then let me push my luck... I need a new dress to wear with this new addition to my leg" looking at the cast covering my ankle.

"What? You want to go shopping?"

"I will be ready in 10 minutes."

I wasn't sure what I was trying to do but I loved Dan. Three hours later I dragged him into another shopping mall. I saw a dress in the window and I knew right away that this was going to be mine.

"Hello, may I help you?" a woman in her mid-30s approached us staring at me and my crutches.

"I'm just curious to know how much is the dress showing in the window" I said while resting my cast on top my good foot.

"Would you like to try it on?" the woman asked.

"No-"

"Yes she would," Dan said staring at both of us.

"I would?" I looked at him.

"Yes," Dan nodded.

"Why?"

"Because I want to see you in it."

"I've got my cast and crutches."

"So what? Come on, I will help you. I think you'd look gorgeous in it, plus I would love to see that cast of yours" The woman said smiling.

"You-you do?" my face mirrored true awe, what is all that fascination with my cast.

"Yes," Dan smiled softly.

"Ok, I'll try it on."

"Alright dear, let's get you back there to try this on," the woman directed me towards the dressing rooms.

I stood at a large tri-mirror studying my reflection. The dress was down to my knees in the front and dipped halfway down my calves in the back leaving a clear view of my cast. The front was simple plunging down low enough to see my necklace and showing just a bit of cleavage. I hopped on my good leg out of the dressing room.

"Oh wow," Dan breathed..

"It looks...OK," I sighed. With the help of Stephanie the saleswoman I hopped around careful not to hit my cast and put any weight on my broken ankle.

"Oh no. Don't start getting all weird on me. Ashley, it looks beautiful. YOU look beautiful.... I'll be all over you " Dan smiled.

"YOU say that." I sighed.

"Okay, I'll take it." With Stephanie's help I hopped over towards the dressing room. I could feel Stephanie staring at my cast and toes.

"Thank you for your help but can I ask you a question" I said.

"Sure madam" Stephanie moved closer.

"Why are you staring at my cast?" Stephanie looked at me right in my eyes and told me about how sexy I looked with that cast on. She explained to me that many men's and some woman are totally attracted to woman on crutches because of cast or sprain. Wow for the first time I started to understand why Dan was so hot for me lately.

"Ashley you are a beautiful woman. Take this from me, in that dress with your crutches and that lovely cast you will be a killer. If you were not married I would flirt with you right here right now and let's leave it at that" She moved closer and kissed me passionately on the lips.

Wow, I came out of the dressing room and paid for the dress.

"What took you so long?" Dan asked.

"Well Dan... " I smiled with my best devilish smile.

I was getting around much better and my ankle was much less painful. I got ready for the party wearing my nice dress, and when Dan saw me, his eyes looked at my whole body.

The party was boring. I made my way to the sofa on my crutches and sat down crossing my leg the way only a woman can. I rubbed the toes at the end of my cast.

"Let me do that," Dan said. He sat down beside me and lifted my cast into his lap.

"How is your ankle Ash?"

"It feels great now that you are rubbing my toes and the cast is elevated" I smiled

"Are you a caster Dan? Do you find me sexy in that cast and on crutches?" I asked.

He moved his hand all over my cast, toes and leg and up my tigh. "I think I am Ash."

Her eyes widened. "Really?"

"Oh, yes," he answered. He leaned over and lightly pressed his lips to mine, giving me the opportunity to push him away if I chose. I let my arms go around him, he deepened the kiss.

What are you up to Ashley I kept asking myself, you can't used a broken ankle to get your husband back but...

It was probably one of the best kiss ever. The man could definitely kiss. When we finally parted, I could only stare up into his smiling brown eyes.

"So. . ." Dan looked at me a little uncertainly.

"So. . ." I smiled at him.

He leaned forward and kissed me on the nose. "You look so hot in that dress with your cute cast and the crutches"

"Yes," I answered hesitantly thinking of Stephanie's kiss and comments about how I looked.

I put my hand on his cheek. "Dan, I didn't know how you felt about the cast" I said.

"Besides, I didn't think you were interested in me at all anymore."

"I...I'm sorry Ashley" . He leaned forward and kissed me gently. "

"I thought it was because you were trying to make up for...cheating on me"

I lowered my cast to the floor grabbed my crutches and made my way to the Taxi stand without looking back. The driver helped me in the cab. I sat on seat and lifted my cast on the seat.

The driver assisted me from the cab and he stood patiently by while I placed my crutches under my arms and began to walk toward our house. I smiled while asking myself if I had done the right thing, but then, I really wanted Dan back and if I had to use the cast well why not.
