This encounter has a great deal to do with the fact that I had a very serious injury a year ago. My leg broke badly in several places, and my ankle was the most affected, as it’s still a bit stiff. The encounter itself occurred after I was in therapy. My leg had healed mostly, except for my ankle, and I had to walk on a pair of crutches for a while, which was devastating for me, as I do karate and it’s a huge part of my life.
At the time of the encounter, I wanted to try walking more without my crutches, and I was out of the cast, and now only had medical bandages wrapped around my leg to give me support. I couldn’t run, but I could walk, albeit with a limp. Not only was my leg bandaged, but I had an eye infection at the time, so I had to wear a medical eye patch, like this, because my infected eye was inflamed and sensitive to light.
Also, I guess it would be important to mention that I’m an Asian mix, meaning I can pass off for any kind of Asian ethnic group.
The encounter itself took place at the local Asian cultures festival. Of course, it also doubled as weeb heaven.
