It’s been two weeks since Alice came to town for her “visit.” Things seemed back to normal and Danny hadn’t said a word to Emmie about her “curiosity.” Emmie for her part had been trying as best she could to keep those thoughts out of her mind. Just two months ago she was literally a virgin bride.
Danny was off someplace being Doctor Richardson so Emmie took some time to file his paperwork and clean the office; when a package arrived via the post. It was from Alice and opening it saw it was a nice new sweater for Emmie and a watch for Danny. She sat down and read the note that Alice had written her.
“Dear Emmie and Dr Danny Richardson,
Thank you so much for helping me the other week. I am taking a break from acting and got a job as a receptionist at the new Sears & Roebuck in Boston. I used my discount to get you some small things.
Your friend always Alice”
The note brought back a flood of feelings for Emmie and she started looking through his medical books. She lost track of time looking over everything she could about “female health” as one book put it and didn’t hear Danny come in the door.
“Curious again?” he asked as she shot up straight in the chair startled.
“Danny, I’m normal right?”
“What do you mean?”
“Mine doesn’t look like the book... it doesn’t look like Alice’s” She says pointing at the book’s illustration of external female anatomy.
“Well no two look alike. Yours is perfectly fine. It’s what’s inside that doctors worry about.”
“Oh well… what about me? You’ve never check me.”
“Well… you’re not having any problems…”
“I’ve been curious since…”
“Yes…” she said very shyly
“Well, we have the farm to ourselves for the next two days while your aunt and uncle are out. We can talk about it later without them asking any questions.” She nodded as she closed the book and they both walked out of the room.
Within minutes Emmie had regretted the very short conversation and hoped Danny had forgotten it. He didn’t say anything about it for the rest of the day. Emmie, relieved as the day went on, made them a small dinner. She didn’t notice her husband bringing his medical bag or the good bright lantern into the parlor room. Soon dinner was over and he helped her wash the dishes. With a smile they both went into the parlor and she wound up the phonograph and dropped the needle onto Paul Whiteman’s “Whispering.”
“Well that was a busy day Danny.”
“Oh yes dear it was!” he said lighting the large lantern he brought in.
“Why did you bring that here? It’s bright as day.” she asked clueless
“Oh well you were curious about an exam right?” he asked in a serious tone. “I thought here on the shay’s lounge might be an easier place than our bed.”
“No. Yes. No i mean…” she said suddenly unable to speak.
“Undress for me dear. I promise it won’t hurt or anything like that.” She silently undressed a little bit in shock but felt almost driven to comply for reasons she didn’t understand. Meanwhile he silently laid out some instruments on the side table.
“What’s that?” she said standing there in just her knickers and stockings.
“It’s a different kind of speculum it’s called a Graves Speculum. I haven’t seen that collins since… oh… OH… yeah…” He said realizing Emmie still had it. Then he enjoyed seeing her turn red with embarrassment as she realized he knew she still had it.
“I’ll just feel better when…” she said drifting off into silence as she lowered her knickers but left her white stockings on.
“Just lay back on the couch for me Emmie dear.” he said as the phonograph record came to a stop with a loud click. Emmie laid back and slowly brought her legs open the way she saw Alice do without her husband needing to ask. She instinctively covered her chest with her arms and took a deep breath. “Since you’re so curious would you like a mirror?”
All she could manage was a nod and reached out to take it from him. Then taking a deep breath managed to say “Explain as you go?”
“Ok dear… well so here is your pubic hair and it’s evenly distributed and looks very healthy… and these outer lips are your labia majora. So labia is actually latin for lips… for you they almost completely cover your inner lips.. The labia minora” He says gently spreading them apart. “And that’s totally normal.” Emmie nodded as he pulled back the hood over her clitorus.
“What’s that called?” she asked as the cool air hit such a sensitive place and a small jolt went through her body.
“Be happy your husband knows how to find it.” He said with some cheer then clearing his voice “The clitorus, it’s a bunch of nerves.” He said in a very professional voice. Looking up he saw Emmie very much trying not to smile. “This is your urethral opening.”
“Where you pee from Emmie”
“Oh I.. Umm always thought it came from… you know.”
“From?” he said inquisitive himself now.
“I thought I peed from… from… you know… The Va.. you know” She just couldn’t get the word out. “Just go on.”
“Vagina?” he said half surprised as he opened it with his fingers.
“Well this is your vaginal opening Emmie… this ring is where your hyman or...ummm. Maidenhead as you called it would be.” She nodded again turning red with some embarrassment. “I’m going to use the speculum now Emmie.” Again she nodded trying not to be too excited and still a little bit embarrassed by the whole situation she had gotten herself into. He slowly guided the metal bills into her and rotated it into position.
“Golly, that is cold! I sit on the other one to warm…” she suddenly stopped herself but Danny just smiled. He opened it slowly bringing her cervix into view.
“OK see it’s a very healthy pink color, and you have a small opening that leads into your uterus. See it?” He let it stay inside her as she looked into the mirror at the whole situation.
“Go on Danny? Doctor?” She said now a little bit coyly. He released the bills slowly and then as gently as he put it in slowly took it out. Then spreading her labia gently again slowly slid two fingers inside her. He pressed on her abdomen feeling her uterus. Then her ovaries…
“It’s all very healthy Emmie.” She just nodded and was trying will all her will to hold off a strange feeling of arousal. “Now one last thing. It’s so I can feel behind your uterus...I’m going to put one finger in your vagina and the other in your rectum.”
“Both places?” she ask barely audible.
“Just bare down against my finger. It might feel like you’re going to go but you won’t” She just nodded as his finger slid inside her rectum then vagina. He again pressed on her abdomen. Then very slowly took his fingers from her. “See everything was perfectly fine Emmie.”
Emmie stood up, one stocking falling down past her knee. She moved in close to him. “Listen to my heart… please?”
He took the stethoscope from his bag, placed the ends in his ears, and put it to her bare chest. “Your heart is racing dear.”
“Mmhmm” She said finally acknowledging how she was feeling, “Only you can do that to me. It happened after you examined two years ago… It happened when you asked me to marry you, it happened on our wedding day… and night.. It… it...it happened watching Alice in your hands… and now…but keep it our secret.” then placing her hands on his chest. “And your heart is racing too dear...”
Dr Danny Richardson smiled and simply answered with “mmhmm”
