Oh yes, really enjoying this. Perhaps the two women can become friends?

Part 16: Very Little Progress

Cora felt like an animal on show as her husband Jared spoke to Dr. Brandt as though she wasn't there at her next appointment. Her mouth was held open and a suction tube hung out the right side giving her an awful case of cotton mouth. Dr. Brandt was showing Jared how to turn the key on her new expanders. Both men ignored her tears and she whimpered as Dr. Brandt cradled her jaw and turned the key on her top expander.

"See? Not hard at all Jared. Now you do the bottom. " Jared turned the key slowly, causing Cora to gasp at the pressure.

"Great job, Jared. She needs that turned every night. I know we just did a turn, but another one tonight won't hurt." The orthodontist explained, unwiring the cervical headgear he placed weeks ago. Cora squeezed Jared's hand feeling relief as the headgear she despised was removed. He gave her a squeeze back and then smirked as another headgear was pulled out. Cora was going to hate this, and he knew it.

Dr. Brandt held up the contraption that looked more like an umpire's mask than an orthodontic device. Rubber bands were poured out on the tray, and would be used to hold tension. As Cora realized that this was to be wired in like the last one she began to cry and look up at Jared helplessly. Silently begging him to make it stop as he held her hands firmly to her chest.

In and effort to calm his bride down, Jared spoke kindly to her. "Honey, it's temporary, and for your own good. I promise you'll thank Dr. Brandt and I some day, yeah?"

At the reception desk, there was a sign that help was needed in the way of a part time receptionist. With Kara feeling confident enough to be out in public with her braces off, she was going to begin college, and the office needed help a few days a week. With some hesitation Elise signed in and then looked at the sign.

In the last week, she'd been asked by the school to take a step back until she was able to speak clearly and not rely on videos and handouts to teach. For that reason, Elise was now in the middle of a job hunt, wanting to make sure that she could still pay her bills monthly. With a sigh, she sent her resume to the email address on the sign.

Elise's deep thoughts about her future were interrupted as she saw a woman come from the back with a facemask. The lady leaned on what was assumed to be her partner as they made an appointment and left. Touching her hated brackets, Elise sighed wondering what her fate would be today.

I only just caught up with this story, and wow! I love the various misfortunes these poor girls all suffer, and their treatments are so beautifully detailed! I'm a little sad to see Kara go, she was definitely my favorite, but I'm excited to see what the future has in store for Elise and Cora! I'm very curious about Hannah's treatment... she sounds like she's wearing quite a mouthful, how does she feel about that?

This story is going very well. Switching between multiple POVs like this gives it a sense of breadth.

Chapter 17: It's for your own good.

Elise's palms were damp with sweat as she was lead back by Hannah whose own lips were stretched over brackets. Elise noticed there was a tray that had straps on it and her breathing increased. She hadn't even noticed Dr. Brandt placing thick wire on the tray, and looking at her records. The straps on the tray made her sick thinking about her highschool life and the crying when she had headgear on. She was so deep in her thoughts that placing a bib on her, being reclined and having the light aimed didn't seem to register.

She only came to when she heard Dr. Brandt snapping gloves on, and looked up to see he and Hannah smiling behind masks. Out of instinct she opened her mouth and went through the routine of opening and closing for what seemed like forever to her.

Dr. Brandt smiled behind his mask and then placed a retractor in Elise's mouth. "Elise, I'm placing a new wire on top and bottom. I'm also going to start making that bite of yours line up."

Elise tried to ask how but her words were garbled and not understandable as the doctor happily pulled out the bite plate causing her to groan in discomfort. Elise's teeth felt like they may come loose as they were freed from the plastic. After a chair gripping cleaning, he began to place bands on all her molars then lace the wire through them.

Hannah held a cervical headgear in Elise's line of vision and handed it to the doctor. "Elise, Dr. Brandt will wire this into your bottom molars. You are to clean your teeth very well every time you eat."

Numb and a bit shocked, Elise only cried while Dr. Brandt wired in the headgear. She looked up at him with watery eyes begging him to have mercy on her. When she was sat up she rubbed her sore teeth and sniffed. "Dr, how long will I have to be like this?"

Dr. Brandt smiled , shooing her out of the room. "You know we don't talk time tables, dear. I can tell you that with the banded brackets and the headgear, it can extend treatment longer than I usually prefer." Elise's hands shook as she left and scheduled the next of what would be several appointments.

When Elise left, the doctor turned to Hannah and patted the chair. "Your turn, darling. Have a seat. I need to see if you're wearing those rubber bands or not."
