I love this story so far! Elly and Alex are very cute, I'd like to see how they act together! I also can't wait for the other students to receive their treatment, even if it'll be just brief glimpses. It'd be interesting if some of them have to deal with much more extreme appliances, maybe some more "experimental types"?

Chapter 8

Alex got on his bike to the train station. Elly messaged him what station he needed to get off and what bus to take to her house.

Being 22 and having a day off, Elly fell asleep again after she messaged Alex and woke up again 1 hour later. Elly got dressed and went downstairs to get herself some breakfast. She got some yoghurt because her mouth was still hurting. When Elly had just sat down, the doorbell rang, which made her jump. She got up and walked to the door and opened it. When Elly opened the door, her eyes got wide when she saw Alex.

With a beet-red face, Alex said “Hi,” to Elly.

Elly looked at Alex with his 2 headgear protruding from his mouth. "Uh, Hi, Aoex, come in."

Alex came inside and followed Elly to where she was about to eat breakfast. "Stho I sthee you got
headgeaw," breaking the awkward silence.

Unlike Elly, Alex could still speak fine. "Yes. It's fixed as well."

"Weaooy, can I sthee?" Elly asked.

Since Elly was Alex's classmate and he liked her a lot, he said sure and opened his mouth.
Elly turned on the flashlight on her phone and looked in Alex's mouth seeing all his teeth had bands on them and the face-bow inserted on his rear molars. She was so caught up with her examination that she pulled on the front of his face-bow. Alex let out a little grunt of pain.

"Oh, im stho sthowwy, aoex."

"It's alright," Alex said, "just don't do it again, like I said, they are fixed."

"Youw tuwn," Elly said.

Elly gave Alex her phone and opened her mouth.

He saw 2 large expanders, full-banded braces and a Herbst appliance.

"No wonder you can't really speak," Alex said.

"Yesth, I'm awawe of that," Elly said. "It huwtsth a oot, youw awe kind of oucky that you hawen't had youw bwacesth fow a night aoweady."

"Yes, but the headgear puts a lot of pressure on my molars."

"Have you had anything to eat yet?" Elly asked.
"No not yet," Alex said.

"Want some yoghurt and an aspirin?"

"Yes, please."
They both sat down and tried to navigate the spoon to and inside their mouths. Alex had trouble getting in to his mouth with 2 face-bows with 1 moving when he opened his mouth and Elly struggling to swallow the yoghurt due to the expanders. After a while, they managed to finish the yoghurt.

They talked for a bit about their lives and about the braces and appliances they had gotten. After a while, Alex tried to get his lips over the face-bow making it look like he was going to kiss. Not that he ever considered doing it. What Alex didn't know was Elly liked him as well. When Alex got his lips together over the face-bow, he never expected that Elly would give him a quick kiss on the lips. They both went very red after what Elly did.

"Uh, that was unexpected," Alex said.

"I'm stho stho sthowwy," Elly said, her face being as red as a tomato.

"No, no, it's fine, I just didn't expect that."

"Weoo, to be honest, I kind of oike you." Elly felt her face getting even redder and Alex's face got red as well.

They sat in an awkward silence for a moment before Alex blurted out he liked her as well. They sat there for a while longer in an awkward silence when Alex said he should maybe go.

"No, poease sthtay," Elly said quickly. "Maybe you want to go sthomewhewe togethew?"

"Well, I usually go to the pool on Thursday. If you want to come with me?"

"But do you have youw sthwimweaw with you then?"

"No, but we can get that at my house and go to the pool from there."

“Yeah, okay, oet me gwap my sthtuff.”

Elly quickly got her swimwear, towels and clean clothes, as she preferred clean clothes after swimming, and her toothbrush kit in case she needed it and messaged her mom she would be home late. Her mom said, “okay and be safe.”

“I'm weady oetsth go.”

They both got on Elly's bike and headed for the train station.

(dang this relationship is moving fast)

Chapter 9

After a very awkward train ride to the city, they got on Alex's bike and headed to his house.
When they got to Alex's home, his mom looked a bit shocked at the contraption around his head and face.

"Oh my, what did they do to you?!?" his mom asked.

"Mom, relax, it's okay, this is a headgear. I need it for treatment."

With that, his mom relaxed a bit and noticed Elly.

“Who’s this, Alex?”

“This is Elly.”

“Heooo, nice to meet youw.”

“Hi, Elly nice to meet you. Sounds like you have a hard time talking.”

“Yesth, I have 2 expandewsth.”

“Sorry to hear that, hope you get used to them soon.”

While Elly and Alex's mom had been talking, Alex went to grab his swim gear.

“You ready, Elly?” he asked when he got downstairs again.

“Yesth, I am.” And they headed over to the pool.

Once at the pool, they paid entry and went to the changing rooms, both grabbing a different cubical. Elly was done rather quickly, but not Alex. He took off the straps, then tried to take off his shirt but got caught on both face-bows, which hurt pretty bad because he was pulling with some force on his shirt. After he managed to get it off, he grabbed the waterproof straps, then put his clothes in a locker together with Elly's stuff to save on the money. He asked Elly if she could help him put on his straps. Of course Elly was happy to help him. He said on what hole both straps needed to be and Elly attached them.

Alex took a good look at Elly. There she was a beautiful girl with long hair, not that tall (like he cared about that) and a good body shape. While Alex was looking at Elly, Elly did the same to him. Alex was taller than her and was in good shape, no six-packs, but she didn't care.

They both had a great time at the pool swimming and going down the slides just like they were little kids, the braces gave them a much younger look as well.

After they had been in the pool for a few hours, they decided to get out and go home.

On the way back to Alex's place, he asked if she wanted to stay for dinner.

Elly said she would like that, if it wasn’t any trouble at least.

Alex said it wouldn’t be a problem at all. His mother always made too much.

When they came back to Alex's house, it was almost time for dinner.

“Hi Honey, Hi Elly. Did you guys have a good time at the pool?”

“Yes, we did mom. I invited Elly to stay for dinner.”

“That’s fine.”

Half an hour later, dinner was ready and they again struggled to eat, but they managed eventually.

When dinner was over, Alex's mom asked if Elly wanted to stay the night.

“Oh, I don't know if I can sthtay the night,” Elly said.

“Oh, I insist and it's already getting dark and there's no train service tonight because there's engineering going on from 20:00 to 05:00.”

“Oh, I didn't know that,” Elly said.

“We have a spare room where you can sleep.”

After informing her mom what was happening and why she wouldn’t be home tonight, she spent the evening on the couch talking to Alex and his mom and dad.

At 23:00 they got ready to go to bed. Elly brushing her still sore teeth and Alex trying to get a toothbrush in his mouth, but was a bit frustrated from all that happened that day. He sighed. Elly picked up the toothbrush and said, “Open your mouth, I will help you. I will be as gentle as I can.” After she was done, she gave him a kiss and they went to bed.

Chapter 10

At 02:00, a whirring sound came from Elly's mouth. This of course was her expanders doing a turn, but like Emily had said, she didn't notice it.

In the morning, Elly woke up at 7:30 like normal but her mouth was very sore again. After she got dressed, she went downstairs and saw Alex's mom making breakfast.

“Good morning, Elly, hope you had a goodnight's sleep.”

“Good mowning. Yesth I did, but my mouth isth huwting a oot.”

“I figured, that's why I got you some soft food and some aspirin.”

“Oh, thank you stho much,” Elly said.

A few minutes later, Alex came downstairs and his mother gave him the same breakfast as she gave Elly.

After again struggling to eat anything, Alex asked Elly how she was doing.

“Weoo, my mouth isth sthowe. The expandewsth activated duwing the night, and what about you?”

“My mouth hurts a lot after the first night, just like you said it would.”

“You wioo be aowight,” Elly smiled.

“We should get ready. We need to go in 5 minutes or so.”

“Oh cwap. I have no decent sthhoesth here.” She took a rather old and dirty pair of sneakers with her expecting she would go home the day before.

“With size do you have?” Alex's mom asked.
“40,” Elly replied.

“I've got 39 myself and have a pair of shoes that are way too big for me. I think they're size 40. After bought them, I couldn't return them.”

“That wouod be gweat if I couod bowwow them,” not knowing what she was getting herself into.

Alex's mom grabbed the shoebox and gave it to Elly.

Elly opened the box and saw a pair of rather high-heel ankle boots. She was pretty good at walking in heels, her being short and sometimes wanting to be taller.
“Weoo, thisth isth way bettew than the diwt and ood sthneakewsth I've got cuwwentoy,” Elly said.

“Well, if they fit you can have them.”

“Weaooy thank you, they fit gweat.”

“Great to hear. Now you two better go or else you'll be late.”

“Thanks, mom,” Alex said.

They got on Alex's bike and headed towards the College.

“What do you think the othewsth have gotten put on?” Elly asked Alex.

“No idea about any appliances. The only thing I know is that the others have braces just like us,” Alex replied.

After a while they arrived at the college and they started walking towards class, Elly taking Alex's hand to walk hand in hand towards the classroom.

When they came into the classroom they looked over to their classmates and saw .....

(something that will be in chapter 11 :P)

Chapter 11

When Alex and Elly came inside, they saw their classmates had braces and some had external appliances as well.

“Good morning class,” Emily said when she came in. “Today we will take a look in each other's mouths and discuss some of the treatment plans after. Sound okay?”

The class gave a grunt of agreement.

“Great, let's start. Does someone want to go first?”

“I wioo,” Emma said with a lisp.

Emma stood up and laid down on the chair.

“This camera will assure you can see everything on the screen.”

“Emma, like every one of you, has banded braces, but unlike all of you, has a tongue crib and elastics. These boxes around her teeth will pull her teeth together. The elastics run from her top first premolar to her central incisor to the same teeth on the bottom and it's the same on the other side. Thank you for showing us, Emma.”

“Who’s next?” Emily asked.

“I will go next,” Ian said and got in the chair.

“Again, Ian has braces but his lips are pushing on his teeth a lot, so he has an upper and lower lip bumper to keep his lips out of the way. These normally are removable, but these springs keep them in and these springs on the wire will make sure I will be able to connect the wire to these two teeth soon. Thank you for showing us.”

“Who wants to go next?”

“I will,” Abigail said and got in the chair.

“Abi here has an underbite, for that, she, of course has braces with something that's called a tandem appliance. It's like a reverse pull headgear without the massive frame around the face. The inner part is just like a face-bow but the outer part has these two hooks on them. Normally we use elastics, but we want to see if it's faster to use springs. It's a lot more discrete than the frame but she still has something sticking out of her mouth, and if Abi opens up you can see the TPA and the lingual arch to hold the arch of the teeth. Thank your Abi.”

“Who’s up next?”

Julian just got up without saying anything and got in the chair.
“Julian here has a deep bite, so he has been given a bite plate and these 2 springs that go from his upper canines to his second lower molar on both sides to pull his lower jaw forward a bit and his upper jaw back. He might need headgear on the top as well, but we will see that if it doesn't really want to move. Thank you, Julian.”

“Who wants to go now?”

“I wioo,” Jack lisped.

“Right, have a seat, Jack. Jack here has a fairly narrow upper jaw, so he got an expander but he might need more appliances. We have to wait and see how his mouth responds. Thank you Jack.”

“Elly, do you want to go next?”

“Sure,” she said and got in the chair.

“Elly here has an overbite, and for that she got a Herbst appliance, and also two narrow jaws, for that she got upper and lower expanders. These expanders will turn automatically and if I'm right that happened last night, right?”

Elly nodded.

“Good! Did you notice it when they turned?”

Elly shook her head.

“Elly and Jack both got these self-turning expanders that will turn during the night to ensure the most comfort. Thank you, Elly.”

“Who wants to go next?”

“I will,” Alex said.

“Good, have a seat. Alex here needs his molars moved back so that's why he got these two face-bows. They are fixed in the tubes to ensure optimal wear time. He also got an extra pair of waterproof straps, so showering or any water-based activity can be performed with the straps in place.”

“Yeah, they worked well yesterday.”

“Oh, you already tested it?”

“Yes, Elly and I went to the pool.”

“Well, very good you used the straps. Thank you, Alex.”

“And Lily you're last, please have a seat.”

“Lily here has just got braces for now. She might need more appliances later but her teeth need to move a bit first. She's the only one that doesn't have something extra. Thank you, Lily.”

“For all of you, it's possible you need an appliance removed, replaced with a different one, or one or more that need to be added.”

“We will look more into the treatment plans next week. This “mouth showcase” has taken a long time, but I have to inform you of one thing before you go for a break and stay here for nothing. Mr. Williams called in sick so you’re out, now have a nice weekend everyone.”

Everyone got up and left, Elly grabbing Alex's hand again.

They saw Lily in the hallway.

“Hi Liooy,” Elly lisped.

“Oh, hi guys,” she said, sounding a bit down.

“Whatsth wwong?”

“Well, I'm the only one that just got braces, but I'm a bit worried about what I might get.”

“Oh, you be aowight, what I got isth sthounding wowse then it isth.”

“Thank you, Elly,” while hugging Elly.

“So you two a couple?” Lily asked.

“Yeah, we kind of awe,” Elly replied, “we oike each othew.”

“That was quick,” she laughed.

“Yeah, we know, but you know how funny love can be,” Alex said.

“Yeah, I do. My boyfriend called me Jaws,” she giggled.

They all laughed at that.

“Well, I need to go,” Lily said.

“Yeah, so do we. I need to go to Alex's place to grab my stuff and head home.”

After they said their goodbyes, Alex and Elly got on Alex's bike and headed home.

They hang out together somewhat at Alex's place and at 16:30, Alex took Elly to the train station. On the platform, they both kissed and Alex asked Elly if she wanted to be his girlfriend to make it a more official relationship. She said she would love that and kissed him some more until the train came and Elly had to go.

She waved to him from inside the train and left for home.

On the train she messaged her mom she was on her way home.

Mom: I’m already home I’ll make something soft for you to eat tonight.

When Elly made it home, she put her bike in the shed and came inside.

Elly's mother heard the tapping sound of high heels and said, “You have a pair of high heels on.”

“Yesth, I think they awe 15 or 16 cm high, but ouckioy they got a poatfowm asweoo.”

“Did you buy them in the city?”

“No, Aoex'sth mom gave them to me. They wewe too big fow hew and couodn't wetuwn them.”

“That's nice of her. Well, dinners ready in 30 minutes.”

Elly didn’t want to tell her about Alex being her boyfriend just yet.

She sat down on the couch and messaged Alex she was home. They talked a while longer on Whatsapp until dinner was ready.

After dinner, Elly took off her shoes and went upstairs to brush her teeth and remained upstairs watching some YouTube videos until 23:30 when she put her phone away and went to sleep.

Take the time you need. It is better to put together a good story that takes time rather than a poor story that you hurried to write just so that you could post it.

I am enjoying what you have written so far, and am looking forward to more good material from you. I have been adding the chapters to TheArchive as you have been posting them.
