It was much like the tricycle in Laugh In, a decidedly non-spectacular accident but enough to break my right leg below the knee. Oh, the acute pain was long since over with, but then, weeks later, I'd been reduced to the chronic malaise of boredom.
The doctors--the "orthopods" -- had done a magnificent job of patching me, but it required a couple of operations and a long-leg cast only a little lighter than the Staten Island Ferry. I was mostly confined to a lumpy day bed that'd been set up in my living room and there I vegetated, sinking slowly into terminal ennui.
There was no one to blame but myself. Inattention and distraction perhaps were the culpable causes. I'd just left the hospital on my motorcycle and was going home to grab my bags and take off for two weeks's vacation in the Caribbean. I loved to SCUBA dive and hadn't had the chance to explore warm water reefs in far too long. Too, I reflected ruefully, this surgical training was a marked impediment to the most rudimentary social life, for it'd been equally too long since I'd been laid. Two weeks in the Caribbean would surely treat both those problems.
Anyway, driving in traffic, thinking of those long-standing deficiencies, I was totally unprepared for a sudden stop by the gal in the car just in front of me. A rabbit, I guess, had darted out and she'd slammed on the brakes. I swerved and didn't make it. My tibia and fibula were caught between my engine and her bumper. Damn! Once again, steel wins out over bone.
In the first few weeks after the operations, I hadn't been much concerned with horniness but later, five or six weeks out, that biologic imperative kicked into in overdrive. And I was a beached whale! For example, just the previous evening, I decided to take a bath. Wrapping my cast in garbage bags for the shower worked well enough, but didn't allow a relaxed soak much less the opportunity for a casual wank. Then a solution came to me, the brilliance of which was dazzling!
With the help of a woman friend -- a friend in the strictest sense of the term -- I lay in the empty tub with my plaster-casted leg held straight up. She measured the distance from the bottom of the large tub to the top edge of my cast. We'd put in an inch or two less water than that and I'd get my soak. Such hubris. Completely ignoring Archimedes, I lowered myself into the warm water with a self-satisfied grin. That is, until the water rose and inundated the top portion of my cast! My friend, Joanne, thought it was hilarious; I thought it was a conspiracy between fate and the perversity of inanimate objects.
The next day the orthopods took some delight in explaining the principle of displacement of water to me as they immobilized me in yet another to-the-crotch cast. However, they didn't think the coat-hanger excoriations they found on my leg were funny. They were the result of of my home treatment for the excruciating itchiness under the cast. I knew they were right, of course, but I suppose I held that rules were for other people.
In the past few weeks I'd experienced several, mostly unsatisfactory, self-induced orgasms. I suppose there was something too clinical about the whole thing. I couldn't jack off left handed and the cast on my right leg was in the way. My wrist kept banging away at the casts's edge and I ended up with flecks of plaster all over the place and worse, the tell-tale deterioration of the cast's upper edge. I might as well have painted an arrow and wrote: "See, Billy's been beating off again!"
Besides, I wanted to get laid, not jack off. But how in Hell could I do that? I was getting around much better with crutches but I could think of no way any woman would be attracted to me in that getup. And even if she were, I couldn't flex at the hip worth a darn. Perched firmly on my personal pity pot, I wasn't coming up with much to alleviate my tubocharged libido.
At the time, I was living in an old house on the corner in a middle-class neighborhood south of the university and just a few miles from the hospital. I was a house officer, a fancy name for a post-doc fellow. The house was a mess when I "inherited" it, looking like the Gestapo had just left. Lots of elbow grease and several trips to Pier One and Cost Plus had transformed it into a bright and friendly place. Not admitting it to anyone, I'd made some burlap curtains and dyed them orange.
That afternoon the sun had turned the orange to a bright flame, coloring the old hardwood floor before me. The discordant ring of a phone that'd been dropped too often cut through my rumination. Probably the hospital, nagging me to catch up on my charts.
"Hello? Dr. Hayden?"
I didn't recognize the voice, but then I didn't know all the clerks in Medical Records.
"My dictation's all done--just signatures--that's all that's left."
"Uh, Dr. Hayden, this isn't... I mean this is Bobbie."
Bobbie? The only girl I knew who called herself Bobbie was, of course, Bobbie Johnson! That Bobbie was an impossibly long-legged, short-haired blonde medical student who'd been with me on her rotation through surgery, oh, about six months ago. I remembered her well. Lean, yet with good breasts, boyish hips, and pale blue eyes, she was somewhere between tomboy and feminine. She'd been working across from me once in the ER, wearing a overly-large scrub shirt, one that afforded me a long look at her braless breasts. I guess I stopped working, for she looked up, caught the direction of my gaze and then looked down into her own shirt. I looked away and she murmured, "Shit."
"Johnson?" I asked.
"Yes. Bobbie Johnson. Do you remember me?"
I laughed and said, "Oh yes! I remember you, lady."
Mostly I remembered how incredibly smart and talented she was. She had walked through the unreasonable grind of a surgery rotation without complaint, often doing more than anyone might expect. I recall writing her evaluation and adding that, 'Ms. Johnson assumes responsibility well... often when it's not offered.' That wouldn't be a good recommendation for an administrator, but in surgery, it'd be regarded as praise.
"I heard about... uh... about your motorcycle accident."
"And you wanted to suggest that I should know better, right?"
"I suppose you hear that more than you like, but I can't say a thing -- I'm riding a Triumph Bonneville myself."
"Good bike. Bad brakes."
"I'm careful," she defended herself.
"Did you call to talk about motorcycles, Bobbie?"
"Not really, but that's the first non-medical thing we've ever discussed."
She couldn't know about the conversations we'd had in my head, about her curvy butt and the way she licked her lips before she said something. She didn't know how sexy and attractive I'd found her and that was simply because I'd tried not to be a predator with female medical students.
"Well, Johnson, it's nice to hear your voice. Did you match for Duke?"
I knew she wanted to intern at Duke and stay there to go into surgery. In the bad old days, she'd never have had a chance, but the combination of a gradual shift in bias plus her outstanding record could well gain her entry to a prestigious program.
"Can you believe it? Yes! I got the internship. That's my foot in the door. They'll never be able to get rid of me now."
I smiled, thinking how dogged and persistent she was. The chief of my service was a Harvard-trained, stuffed-shirt surgeon who openly held that women should stay at home and have babies. Bobbie had gone after him repeatedly, wearing him down until he consented to have her take a rotation on his service. That's how I first met her, wondering how she'd managed to move that stubborn old man.
"Bobbie, I'm pleased you matched for Duke. I'm really pleased for you, but is that why you called?"
I'd never known her to socialize; she lived in the hospital and the library it seemed and she'd never chatted with me before. Jeez, was she feeling sorry for me? I couldn't stand that!
"Uh... no, Dr. Hayden... "
"Christ, Bobbie, school's out. Call me Bill, won't you?"
There was a pause and I could see her thinking this one out.
"Sure, uh, Bill," and she laughed. "So... I wanted to thank you for your help and to say good-bye before I leave."
"When's that? I asked.
"You called me to say good-bye?" I asked.
"Well, I really called to see if I could stop by to see you and say good-bye in person."
She'd graduated last week; she wasn't a medical student anymore. I wondered, did my self-imposed deal end when they graduated?
I said, "As it happens, I'm not doing anything right now. To be honest, I haven't done anything in weeks. I'm about to go stir crazy. I'd love to see you."
"I got your address; I know where you live..."
"I know how poor medical students are, but could you stop and get some ice cream?
"I can afford that... just. Mocha chip okay?"
"To die for!"
She said she'd be here in under 30 minutes; my thoughts were whirling. What was this about? Why me? And why now? Did she feel the same chemistry? She never gave a hint. I'm probably thinking with my dick.
I remembered seeing her in a short skirt the first time. I'd been riding a bicycle around the campus near the hospital and I stopped to watch some people play tennis. I'd once played a fair bit, but the demands of training had pulled me out of that sport years before. Still, I liked the game and enjoyed watching good players. The mixed doubles game that had been playing on the end court was just breaking up as I arrived, but the two women stayed to play some more.
A lean blonde girl facing away from me bent at the waist to pick up a ball and her short skirt rose, exposing the under cheeks of her buttocks. Her long tan legs contrasted with the whiteness of her lower cheeks. I was mesmerized.
She turned and walked back to the service line. I watched her body move until she walked right up to the fence and said, "Hello, Dr. Hayden." It was Bobbie. We exchanged greetings and she promptly returned to play. I was struck with two things--well, three: How well she played, how sexy she looked and how tan she was. How'd she get a tan? When she was on my service, I didn't think she ever saw the sun.
Bobbie won handily. With the facility one tennis player has of judging another, it was clear that she would have beaten me as readily, even when I was in shape.
"Nice game," I congratulated her when they'd finished.
"Thanks. You play?"
"Used to. No time. Bad elbow... you know."
"I want to play as much as I can right now, before I sell my soul to the devil. If you ever want to play..."
She smiled and left with her friend without any introductions.
I contrasted the tomboy-like girl who'd followed me around for six weeks with the very feminine, good-looking woman walking away from me. Instant lust and I knew there was nothing I could do about it.
Now she was coming over to visit me. What would she look like, I wondered? Would she stop by for a few minutes, say something polite and excuse herself? Probably.
A reflected light moved across the wall as a car pulled up in front of my house. I could hear the crunch of tires come to a stop in the tree rubble outside. I thought to get up and greet her, but she was too fast, bounding through the open door with her accustomed high energy. She was backlit for a moment, her short blond hair a halo about her face. She was wearing tight shorts and the fine hair on her thighs was similarly highlighted. Again, I was struck by how attractive she looked. And I thought she looked like a tomboy? Boy, was I wrong!
"Hey, kid!" I called out.
"Dr. kid to you, big boy."
"Oh yeah... forgot. Dr. Bobbie Johnson. Sounds good, girl."
"But you can call me Bobbie," she added as she sat on the edge of the day bed. "How're ya doin'?"
Raising the heavy cast a few inches off the bed, I let it fall back with a thud and asked, "How do I look?"
"Pretty good... except for that anchor."
"Wanna sign it?" There was the usual collection of graffiti, smiley faces and well wishes strewn up and down my new cast. I couldn't get out of the Orthopedics Department without felt-pen artists decorating me.
"You bet! Where?" she asked, looking up and down the cast.
"Oh, anywhere there's room," I suggested, waving vaguely at my casted leg.
She picked up a red felt pen from the collection on the table and with one hand on her hip, surveyed the canvas.
I was wearing a T-shirt. Period. It was simply too great a hassle trying to put on underwear or shorts over that bulky cast. I'd thrown a light blanket over my midsection, my gesture to modesty.
She said, "Let's see..." and threw off the blanket. Staring at my naked groin, she murmured, "Oh my!"
The blanket was gone. I couldn't move my leg and refused to cross my hands over myself. I wanted to be cool; I wanted to impress her. Somehow I feared the impression I was making wasn't supportive of my masculine image.
"I thought you were going to autograph the CAST," I said.
"Me too," she said, tilting her head and looking at my genitals. At least that's what I thought she was checking out.
Acting as if nothing had happened, she again sat beside me and wrote "Bobbie was here," on the very top of the plaster cast, right next to my penis.
"There! How's that look?" she asked as she finished.
"That's MY question; you think of your own."
Bobbie laughed. Her teeth were very even and very white. Her tongue was pink.
"Oh, this is too much! Dr. Hayden, you look just delicious." Glancing further down she added, "And the cast looks pretty good too."
It was too late to be modest but still I felt very self-conscious. Maybe it was because my dick looked so small juxtaposed against the cast. Yeah, I know that's dumb, but whoever said we guys are smart when it comes to stuff like that? With some difficulty, I pulled the blanket over my midsection and said, "Thanks for the autograph."
"Glad to, but that's not really why I came over, you know?"
"No. I'll tell you... if I can get up the nerve, that is."
"What the hell... you're leaving tomorrow. You can tell me off... say anything you like."
"I know. And that's why I could call you and come over--I won't have to be embarrassed after."
"After what?" I asked.
"Can I sit next to you when I say this?"
"Sure. You'll be safe, that's for sure. You can run faster than I... if you hadn't noted."
"Um... I don't know how to say this," she said, looking away.
"Spit it out, girl. Even if I could run, I couldn't go far with no pants!"
"God, I'm so embarrassed!"
"Bobbie, as colorful as your graffiti is, I know you didn't come over just to sign my cast. So spill it. What's on your mind?"
"Okay, here goes." Taking a breath she looked at a spot on my chest and said, "I wanna make love with you."
"Damn! Don't 'what' me. You heard what I said! I wanna make love with you." She looked red-faced and determined.
I stared at her. I didn't speak, I couldn't speak. Things like this might happen in someone's fiction, but not to me. So I said something clever like, "Why me?"
"Why NOT you, Billy? I know you want to. I've caught you a dozen times, looking down my shirt, checking me out. You DO want to, don't you?
I sputtered, "Of course, but I didn't think... " and fell silent, not remembering what I didn't think.
"I thought so, but you never said anything. I mean, you never made a pass or anything."
"Bobbie, you were a medical student and I was your resident. Besides, you aren't called the 'Ice Queen' for nothing, you know."
"I knew they called me that. I didn't care. Actually, it made it easier."
"If guys thought you, uh... weren't interested in sex?"
"Yeah. I am, you know... interested in sex, that is, but it was easier and less complicated if they thought I was sexless or even a lez."
"So again--why me and why now?"
"I TOLD you! It's because we have chemistry--you and me. I feel it and I know you do, too. And NOW because I'm leaving tomorrow and that makes it easier. I thought if I waited long enough, you might become interested in me, but now, with you in that cast and less than 24 hours to go... the only way it's gonna happen is if I make it happen."
"Sweetie, if anything happens, it'll ONLY be because you made it happen. As you can see, I'm grounded."
"For a really bright guy, Billy, sometimes you're kinda dull, huh?"
"Yeah, dull. You think there's only one way to make love? Sure, I wanna be taken by you... I mean, I love doggie style, but let's face it, we gotta bring the mountain to Muhammad, or something like that."
"Muhammad? How about we quit TALKIN' 'bout makin' love and you just let me give you a hug?"
"Oh, I like you take-charge guys!" she whispered as she lay beside me.
"Come here, woman. Cuddle up to twenty pounds of plaster."
Instead, she leaned on one elbow and looked into my eyes, tracing a finger tip across my face. "So many times when you'd be telling me something, I'd watch your lips and think how it'd feel - your lips on my... on my... you know, down there."
"Can I... can I go down on you?"
She laughed. Do you mean, will I lower myself down to you?"
"Yeah, that's what I mean."
"Do you really want to? I mean, really want to have oral sex... suck me?"
"Okay," she whispered and stood up, looking down at me, as she hooked her fingers into her shorts. "I should tell you, Billy, I'm not lookin' for a boyfriend and I'm not lookin' for romance. I don't have the time for it."
"Then tell me, girl... what ARE you lookin' for anyway?"
"Okay stud muffin, I'm lookin' to get laid, and not by just anybody. By YOU! I've never been so... so out there, so what, brazen?"
As exciting as it was, thinking that she was just hot for my body, I didn't want to intellectualize this erotic connection.
"I don't wanna be pushy or anything, but take your shorts off will you?--let me look at you," I said.
"Yes! I will," she said as she tugged her shorts down over her hips, dragging white panties with them.
This is crazy, I thought. Absolutely off the wall. I've been dreaming about this woman for months, fantasizing actually, and here she is, taking off her shorts for me, in broad daylight, right in the middle of the afternoon. I've never even kissed her. Far out!
She ruffled her pubic hair and said, "This is crazy, isn't it? I love it!"
Her furry place trimmed a little and, while very light in color, was a couple of shades darker than her sun-bleached blond hair. I could see her lips, they were slightly swollen and wet.
"God! You're looking at me and I'm so hot!" she said as she ran a finger down into her slit. "I've been wanting this for so long and now we're really gonna do it."
I pulled her hand down to me and said, "Let me smell you, Bobbie."
She wiped her finger under my nose and her aroma was one of pure sex. "You are SUCH a slut, Billy."
"If I have the blame, I might as well have the game," I said, tugging her down to me. "Mustache rides, fifty cents."
"You KNOW I ain't got that kinda money!" she protested as she lowered herself to my face.
Her lips opened a bit more and they glistened with her juices as she leaned forward, grasping my hard cock in her hand. "God, Billy, give me your mouth!"
She paused only to rip off her blouse. I caught a glimpse of the underside of her hanging breasts as she leaned over my crotch. I saw her pebbled areolae and hardened nipples, erect and hungry.
I breathed on her labia, a long hot breath before inhaling her essence. The tangy musk of her cunt sang to me, roaring through my olfactory senses and pumping me even harder.
"Lower, Bobbie, please. Give me your woman place. Please, I need you."
"Take me, Billy. Take my... taste me, tongue me, touch me. Oh God, oh God, oh God... this is so good... so incredibly good!"
I ran my tongue from her anus to her slit, just short of her clit, slowly, back and forth, edging closer and closer, pausing only to dip into her vagina.
She began to push against my mouth, grinding herself on my chin and nose, moaning, gasping, crying, "Yes, oh yes... do it... suck me."
