Some of my stories in progress honor a woman who, had life gone differently, might well have been my wife, perhaps in a polyamory. We lost touch for a while, until I learned that she died in a horrible accent this April, while working to heal others.
In the more recent story being written, I'm leaning toward using a pseudonym, Dove. I might go back and edit that, simply because Word spell and grammar check keep thinking it's a variant on the verb "to dive".
She literally worked her way, as a legal streetwalker, through graduate social work and clinical psychology education. Subsequently, she brought amazing creds and empathy to girls at risk.
When I knew her, she lived in Kamloops. I'm trying to remember her home town, which was a rural community to the north -- might have started with B or H. Also, outlaw motorcycle gangs were a shadow government there, and also on the streets of Kamloops. Any ideas for the name of a plausible town?
The local gang effectively took her from her uncaring parents, and used her sexually, including as a very young -- prepubescent -- stripper. Somehow, she found the strength to establish her own power.
I do want to be able to refer to that period, in no more specificity than above -- she was exploited before the age of consent. About the only specific I mention is that she might have been the youngest person to move easily in stripper shoes. Any problem with this?
