Hey metalfoxy,
you wrote a great story. I would like to read more about Ellis' treatment. When are you going to continue writing?

I woke up a couple of hours later – it was now early evening and I could hear Jessica chatting away. My heart sped up as I hoped we didn’t have visitors – I couldn’t face seeing anyone right now. I quickly nipped to the bathroom and splashed some cold water on my face to attempt to control the swollen, red eyes. I crept down the stairs, trying to figure out who she could be talking to. As I got to the bottom Jessica was turning the corner – ready to come upstairs, the phone was pressed to her ear “Ah here she is! Hold on, we’ll video you”.
My eyes widened and I shook my head quickly but Jessica persisted “It’s your Dad, he wants to see you!” The ringing came loudly through as we waited for my dad to accept the video and suddenly his face popped up on the screen, “Ahh hello darling! Rough morning?” he chuckled slightly at himself but I couldn’t bring myself to humour him, my face was long and grumpy and he quickly changed tactics “come on then, let me see what my money is buying me!” 
I attempted to smile but it came out more as a grimace. I thought that would be enough but Jessica’s fingers lifted my lips and I stood there like an idiot as the pointed out all the new additions to my mouth. Finally the show was over and she stopped talking. Dad’s face looked as shocked as mine but he quickly recovered “Well, it seems like a lot but you’re beautiful as always! Besides, it’s not forever is it?” The bluntness of it made me want to cry again, I wanted to scream that it didn’t matter if it was forever or 2 months – I still had to face everyone I knew looking and sounding like an idiot and I was mortified. Instead I nodded again and quickly said my goodbyes and went to hide away watching tv for a bit.
My phone was buzzing away in the group chat so I picked it up and read all the questions about my braces. I decided to bite the bullet and took a selfie, attempting to show them off in their fully glory without looking totally ugly. I watched as they all saw the photos and began typing, then stopped typing, then began again.
They were all shocked by the ‘heaviness’ of them but attempted to reassure me that weren’t TOO bad. My mouth was still throbbing and my predicament was sinking in now. A few more tears slipped down my cheeks as I wallowed in my own self pity.
After a while Jessica came in to get me for dinner. She had made pasta which was soft. I picked up a piece and put it in my mouth but quickly realised the bite blocks meant my molars weren’t touching which made eating impossible. On top of this it seemed the food gravitated towards my palate expander. I tried to mash a few pieces of pasta around my mouth and swallowed them but it was taking forever. My front teeth were so tender but I decided to try and use them to eat. This was slightly more successful but it still wasn’t pretty and it would be a while before I would be happy eating in front of others. I caught Jessica smirking throughout the meal and shame burnt through me, my cheeks red and my shoulders slumped up. She offered me a nice cool smoothie which actually helped then sat me down to do the expanders. I tried to protest explaining John had done them earlier but she assured me she’d checked and he said to carry on tonight as normal. My mouth felt like it was going to shatter as she pushed the key backwards but I didn’t give her the satisfaction of groaning with the pain. Finally she was done and she ushered me upstairs to brush my teeth before putting in the night time appliance. I clicked it in and almost immediately the aching increased in my jaws. I decided to ask if she would relent and let the pain settle before I started wearing this ‘ieeff hhrrss fooo moos’ Her face broke into a smile “oh sweetie, that’s so cute. John said talking with that would be difficult, he wasn’t kidding was he?” My face burned with shame and I reached up to take the appliance out but Jessica quickly pushed my hands down “no no, I know it is a bit tricky but John said it’s important you wear it for 12 hours every day after dinner. You’ll get used to it. You can still text all your friends. Besides, you don’t want him to think you’re not listening to his instructions – you are on the compliance plan after all…” Her tone of voice indicated she would have no problem reporting me as an uncompliant trouble maker so I sighed in resignation and trudged off to my bedroom. I sunk down onto my bed, thinking about tomorrow and how everyone would react at school. Tears welled up in my eyes again but this time I let them flow freely and sobbed into my pillow, staying in this position until I’d tired myself out and fell into an unrestful sleep.

If I imagine that I could only mumble to communicate with all the equipment and then in the evening I would also have something like a tennis ball in my mouth that makes it completely impossible to speak, in connection with the pain - I would probably never leave the house again.
And this stepmother who is playing her position to the max. Elli is really at her mercy. On the one hand, I don't want to swap places with her, on the other hand, you might be grateful to her stepmother afterwards, when everything turned out great.
I'm really glad that I only had elastics for my fixed braces.

I am looking forward to the sequel.

I'm glad to see that this story is being added to.

I like to see how the different writers come up with ideas to put into their stories.

Yes, this story is just so different from what I write, but that has got to be good! Variety makes life so much more interesting!

Chapter 8

I woke up the next morning, my eyes still slightly swollen from the crying last night. A feeling of anxiety filled me and I had to breathe deeply to stop myself heaving as the gross taste of metal and plastic filled my mouth. I quickly took the night-time appliance  out and then I lay in bed, swaddled up in the blankets trying to think of ways of get out of going to school today. Finally, Jessica came in and light flooded my bedroom. “GOOD MORNING” I grunted in acknowledgement as she sat on the edge of my bed. She smiled kindly at me ‘I know today you’re supposed to be at school, but I bet you’re pretty sore. Do you want to hang out here today? We can watch some tv, I’ve got a bit of work to do and you can let that pain settle a bit before facing everyone tomorrow – I understand it must be daunting having everyone see all that. You can practice talking some more too, get that lisp down a bit?” Relief flooded over me and I gently hugged Jessica, thinking that maybe she wasn’t all that bad – that maybe she understood how it was to be a teenager with all this metal shoved in there “yeth, thath wouth be greath, thanths”. She smiled sweetly at me and left me to get up and dressed.
I went downstairs where Jessica had got me some yoghurt and painkillers ready. The cool juice felt great in my mouth and I managed to get a few spoonfuls of the yoghurt down without too much trouble. I ran my tongue gingerly across my teeth and they throbbed with even this light touch. I tried to get my lips to close to cover the braces but the big brackets constantly pushed my lips apart with the shiny metal gleaming through – I would need to practice before tomorrow to stop people from staring at me. I felt self conscious enough at home let alone going out in public like this.
The morning went on quickly as I watched junk tv and topped up the painkillers every 4 hours. Jessica was typing away on her computer but suddenly the doorbell went and she jumped up eagerly. My heart rate increased dramatically as I sensed something was going on and I was proved right as 2 of her work friends walked in, I could hear them talking quietly and I sensed by their cooing that they were talking about me. I quickly sat up, getting ready to try and escape to my room but just as I was about to stand up the women appeared in front of me
“Hey sweetie, how are you?” I tried to smile quickly with my lips shut as much as I could manage and mumbled a “fine thanks”. They stood there, clearly trying to get a peek and after a few seconds Jessica spoke up “I was telling these two about your new braces – I said it was a big adjustment but Helen’s daughter is about to get braces too so I thought I’d show yours off, of course hers won't be anywhere near as extensive as yours” she quickly turned towards her friends “ Ellie is a special case you see, she needs a LOT of work done. Unfortunately we are having to foot the bill since she’s still in school so John – you know John? Well he is doing the treatment” Both women’s eyes widened slightly as Jessica talked and finally the older woman said “well that explains why they’re so…erm..well…THERE. John is quite infamous for some brutal methods isn’t he?” Jessica smiled slightly then turned back to me “yes, well – as I said Ellie is a very special case and we wanted to make sure she followed everything properly”. The women murmured in approval and then said their goodbyes as they settled down to work. My cheeks were burning red with embarrassment and I suddenly knew that tomorrow wouldn’t be as straight forward as I had hoped. The anxious feeling started up in my stomach and I knew I was in for a long road ahead.

The following morning came around and despite my hopes that I would be able to stay at home again, Jessica came in and woke me up ready for school. I tried to muster some enthusiasm but felt sick with nerves. Jessica insisted on driving me this morning and I was sure it was to make sure I actually went in. As the car got closer to school my heart rate sped up and I felt my palms get sweaty. Jessica pulled up outside and I turned to her, pleading for some more time off. She smiled, pretending to care “Today is going to be hard, the next few weeks will be hard but delaying it isn’t going to help either. Is it embarrassing having all that metal in your mouth? Yes. Could it be worse? Yes. Is it the end of the world? No. Take a deep breath and in you go.” I groaned but realised I wasn’t going to win this battle so gathered my bag and got out, trying to keep my head down as much as possible.

My friends all saw me and came over to inspect my mouth, they couldn’t hide the shock of it and although they offered me lots of support the tears still gathered in my eyes.
Throughout the day I attempted to stay as quiet as possible, only answering if absolutely needed and I kept my head down. Most people saw the braces and although they did a second glance they didn’t say anything which definitely helped.
At lunchtime I managed a yoghurt but didn’t do anything else for fear of embarrassing myself. By the end of the day even my friends had got used to my new look and I began to think it wouldn’t be as bad as I first thought.

No matter how long it takes, it is always nice to see new chapters added. Keep working on it and give us more.
