County Doctor Meets The City Girl Pt 2
Autumn 1927 a day not unlike when we first met Emmie and her family, but today would be different. “Emmie!” Her aunt yelled bursting into her room. “You have an urgent telegram the man left for you.”
“Auntie we’re naked!” she screamed out as she say her niece and new nephew scramble to be better covered by the sheets.
“Well you’ve only been married to Danny six weeks so I wouldn’t expect anything else.” she said with a laugh. Her aunt smiled again leaving the telegram in her hands as she left the room.
“What does it say?” Danny said rubbing Emmie’s bare back as she sat up
“Emmie, it’s Alice, I’m arriving by train around 11AM today and staying at Harwood’s Inn. Please come see me and bring your husband along. Please don’t tell anyone from home I am here.”
“What could that mean? Which one of your friends is Alice?”
“She was at the wedding the blond who thinks she’s a future movie star.”
“Oh yeah… she couldn’t figure out why you’d be moving ‘out there’ and away from the city. we’ll head there after lunch?”
“Ok but this is weird…” she replied rising from the bed and throwing her bathrobe on. “But we better get dressed and go help out my aunt and uncle if we are ever going to take over this place for them.”
The morning went as it normally would on a family dairy farm. Danny helping uncle Paul in the barn, with the occasional stop to help someone stopping by for medical advice, while Emmie and Aunt Lizzie made a nice lunch and did the laundry in the house. Finally lunch was over and Emmie looked at her aunt “Auntie, would you mind if I went on a Medical call with Danny?”
“Ok dear I’ll handle the dishes and such. You and Danny go do whatever he needs to do.”
The two newlyweds left in Danny’s studebaker down the bumpy country road and then drove the 8 miles to the inn next to the town’s small train platform. As they walked up the brick path from their car Mr Harwood the innkeeper came to meet them.
“Dr Richardson and Emmie, Am I glad to see you! Some lady who says she’s your friend from Boston arrived here and has been driving us insane. In the two hours she’s been here she’s asked for her room to be changed twice, new linens, ordered a meal then refused to open her door when we brought it up and now she’s locked inside it crying. She said she won’t come out until she sees both of you? What’s going on?”
“I have no idea Mr Hardwood.” Emmie said confused. He turned, shrugged, and silently led them to her room.
“Alice it’s Emmie. What’s going on?” she said standing there.
Then the door slowly unlocked and opened. “Oh come in Emmie and Doctor please come in.” she said in a strained and forced propper voice.
“What’s going on?” Emmie replied as Alice shooed them both into the room and looking to be sure the innkeeper was gone closed the door.
“I think… I think… I’m pregnant… I slept with that producer I know… I haven’t had a period in three months…” she said bursting into tears. “I figured some country bumpkin doctor could keep this quiet until we are sure… and you’re married to one…”
“I went to John Hopkins…” Dr Richardson mumbled under his breath.
“Well my husband DOCTOR Richardson will check you out I’m sure you’ll be OK.”
“Yes, well Miss Alice… Umm.. any other symptoms? Morning sickness? Discharge. Pain?”
“Well, not really anything… tenderness a bit… but I’ve always had bad cramps with my periods… nothing last three months.”
“Well in that case I better examine you.” He said coldly. “Emmie will stay with us but I need you to take off all your clothes and have a seat on the bed.”
“What? that’s not necessary isn’t there just some test we can do?”
“Miss Alice, now please just do as you’re told and undress… I’ll leave the room while you do and Emmie will call me when you’re ready.”
Emmie was smiling wondering what would happen next. Dr Richardson ran off to car to get his things. Alice taking her time undressing finally folded up her clothes and had a seat on the edge of the bed, covering herself the best she could with a bed sheet.
“Go get your country doctor husband country girl.” Alice said indignantly.
Emmie walked out of the room and found her husband in the hallway. “She’s ready and still as full of herself as she’s ever been.”
“OK Alice, I’ll just start by listening to your heart and lungs. Will you lower the sheet for me?” he said closing the door behind him. She slowly did so. The cold air already firming her small breasts and bringing her pale nipples fully erect. “Just breathe normally for me.” he said placing the stethoscope on her chest. He moved to her back “Now deep slow breaths for me ok?” Alice sat their doing as she was told with a look of annoyance on her face. Emmie on the other hand was starting to enjoy her friend being treated like anyone else. “OK now lay back for me.” he said lowering her sheet to just below the top of her pubic hair.
“Emmie don’t you ever miss shopping on Newbury Street?” Alice said trying to avoid the thoughts of what’s going on as she covered her breasts with her arms.
“I really like it up here Alice. It’s a good life.”
“I’m going to listen to your bowel sounds next Miss please no talking while I do.” he said placing the stethoscope on her belly. “Everything sounds good Miss.. Let me just feel your stomach now. If you have any pain let me know?” He pressed firmly on her abdomen starting just below her rib cage and working lower and around her side.
“No Pain?” he asked and Alice answered with a nod “OK Alice now lay on your stomach for me.”
“OK but why?” Alice replied as she slowly rolling over trying to keep some modesty.
The room was quiet for a few seconds as Dr Richardson walked over and started to spread her bottom exposing her pink anus. “I need to take your temperature and since we are in the count…”
“Thats so cold!” Alice yelped out as the thermometer came in contact with her skin and before he could finish his sentence. Alice stood there transfixed on the site as she remembered the first time he slid a thermometer into her bottom.
“Emmie honey can you do me a favor and just hold this here while I get some things from my bag.” Trying not to seem to enthusiastic she walked over and held the thermometer there while he searched for something in his bag.
“What’s that Danny?” Emmie said inquisitively as she saw a flash of metal in the sun.
“It’s a medium Collins speculum Emmie, I’ll need to look inside Alice’s vagina.”
“You’ll what!” Alice said standing up quickly, the thermometer still in her bottom and last of her sheet falling to the floor, exposing her thin body.”
“You’ll need a pelvic exam Miss.” he said “Or you can just go home and see a doctor in Boston. He’ll do the same with a lot more questions about your morals. Now don’t move again.” he said walking around behind her and slowly pulling the thermometer out. “You really don’t want that to break inside of you now do you.”
“Oh God” Alice sighed sitting down. “With that?” she asked seeing the speculum for the first time.
“It’s so I can look inside your vagina miss.”
Emmie was suddenly taken with curiosity as she tried to find the best place to stand to get a peak herself. “It will be fine Alice don’t worry.” she said.
“Just… get it.. Over with…” Alice muttered back.
“OK Lay back for me Alice.. On your back… Now bring your heels to your bottom… and let your knees just fall open.” Alice did as she was told slowly. Then quickly moved her hands to cover her bare breasts and most intimate of places.
“Move your hand miss.” Dr Richardson said putting on his gloves. She slowly did, her hand trembling a bit as she rested it across her chest. She laid there exposed looking at the ceiling as the doctor spread her labia apart. Alice looked on transfixed to see such an intimate place like she never had before. “Emmie dear, hand me the speculum?.. dear?”
Her husband’s voice broke her thoughts and she quickly handed it to him. “OH, Oh!” Alice cried out as the metal touched her skin. “That’s so cold!” she tried to move away a bit but the doctor kept inserting it.
“Deep breaths Miss… Deep breaths and relax.” He said quietly as he brought the speculum into position and slowly started to open it’s blades.
“Wow” Emmie muttered to herself as Alice’s cervix came into view.
“OK Alice, your cervix looks healthy, and everything looked healthy on the outside. I’m going to take the speculum out now OK… and then I’ll examine your internal organs.” Alice looked at him and nodded as she felt the blades close and the cold metal slowly leave her vagina.
She took a deep breath of relief and felt his fingers going inside her. “What now?” she ask quietly.
“Just need to feel your internal reproductive organs.” he said placing his other hand on her abdomen and palpating her uterus. Then he moved to the side and felt her ovaries… then the other side and repeated that again. “I honestly don’t think you’re pregnant, I don’t feel anything unusual but one more thing.” he said taking his fingers from inside her.
“Oh what now?” Alice muttered.
“This will feel a bit strange but don’t worry… bare down against my finger.” he said placing his index finger against her anus. Alice didn’t make a sound but covered her face as he slid a finger inside her bottom and then another into her vagina..
“Wow both places?!” he could barely hear Emmie say to herself as he pressed on Alice’s uterus again.
He removed his fingers again taking off his gloves. “Alice are you on any of those fad diets?”
“No sir I got a new diet from a doctor. Doc O’Rielly’s Lettuce and Cabbage Diet.” she said moving her hand to cover herself again.
“So all you’ve eaten is lettuce and cabbage for 3 months?”
“Yes… But I lost 20 pounds!”
“Get dressed Miss. You need a few good full meals. Any other stresses?”
“No..no.. well… I just can’t get a part anyplace outside of Boston…. And my parents said I either need to get a real job, or go to school….” she said quickly getting up and throwing her knickers back on… “And no man will ever marry me now because of the rumors…”
“What rumors?” Emmie asked.
“That I’ll sleep with any director or producer to get work Emmie! I can’t do this anymore!” she said finally breaking down.
“I’m still your friend Alice.” Emmie came over and gave her friend a hug.
Dr Richardson walked over having written a note on his prescription pad. “Look you’re Emmie’s childhood friend. If any one every doubts anything.” he said handing her the note that read.
“I Doctor Daniel Richardson MD found it medically necessary to perform a vaginal exam on Miss Alice Brown on November 2nd 1927 in the process of the exam Miss Brown’s hyman was broken but I found her to be a virgin.”
“Oh my Doctor Thank You! I think I’m just going to get on a train home… ok? Emmie thank you!”
As Emmie and Dr Richardson left and got in the car Emmie was unusually silent… He was a bit worried she was repulsed or annoyed. She just looked out of the car the entire way home. “I’ll clean up your instruments dear.” she finally said smiling a bit Then taking his bag walked slowly into the barn’s tack room that he had converted to a small medical office and closed the door.
Dr Richardson went about the afternoon helping out uncle Paul when it was finally time for dinner. “Go get Emmie, she’s in your room.” her aunt cried out putting a chicken on the table. “I think she was a bit tired and needed a nap.”
Danny walked up the stairs slowly, tired from the day and opened the door and saw his dear wife naked on the bed. She had the speculum inside her and was holding a hand mirror, slowly looking herself over. He walked closer quietly “Oh well Emmie I see something piqued your curiosity today?”
Shocked at her husband’s voice breaking her thoughts again she nearly shot out of bed but remembered the metal speculum inside her. She looked at him and just said “Maybe?” before pulling him in for a kiss.
