Dedicated to my friend John, and all the men and women of the world who have been injured by land mines. This is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to real people or situations is coincidence.
Amy Halprin didn't like the bench press much. Two hundred pounds of stranger sitting on her ribs just as she was about to start her set didn't make her like it any better. Even if he was awful good looking.
"Hey, blind man, why don't you watch where you're going," she gasped out as soon as she could recover her breath.
"Sorry," the stranger replied as he got off her. "I was working that machine." His voice sounded like ice grating on the sidewalk. Anything but truly sorry.
