"Sorry, you are way overdue. "
"Please, I hate needles and that last one hurt alot. It still hurts," I was making my pleas while my cheeks were still exposed, the left one throbing.
I turned my head a bit only to see the nurse filing a syringe with a yellow liquid. She pulled the needle from the vial. It didn't look too long. Then she snapped off that needle and attached a different one. It looked so long I secretly hoped the cover was longer than the needle beneath.
The nurse stepped towards my bottom and I turned my head away. This time she swabbed a large circle on my right cheek.
"Relax," she whispered.
That didn't help, my bottom tensed up so much the needle made a pop as it jabbed me. It was as bad as the other needle had been. The medicine didn't burn as much but I felt like a lump was forming.
As soon as she took that syringe out, the next one was teasing a spot just below my lasted jab.
She pushed this needle in so slowly I thought it would never end. Once deep in the icy burn started.
I was crying now. "Stop" "No" Still she wasn't letting up. I didn't even know the needle was removed until she was padding the spot with more alcohol.
The nurse placed the last two needles, one of which was the one I had seen earlier and I had hoped was already done, next to me on the exam table.
A fresh smell of alcohol come over the room and another large circular target was painted on my right cheek, my still hurt right cheek.
She picked up the lesser of the two evil syringes and jabbed it in very quickly. The medicine went in fast also. It hurt enough to make me flinch but it was quick.
I had to turn my head to see the nurse uncap the last syringe to ease my concern. The cover was true to the needle, uncovered it was much scarier. Long and thick and the medicine dripped out of it like it was a thick goo.
I stood up only to be pushed down hard, she was stronger than I thought.
As she pinned me down she placed the tip of the needle on my cheek and pushed in just a bit.
"If you don't relax this is really going to hurt, you are too tense"
Going to hurt? I was sobbing, it was hurting and it only got worse as she took another try to get the needle in and pierced more of my cheek. Remembering the size of the needle I knew she had more pushes before it was fully into my flesh.
I bit my lip and tried to relax. The last of the needle slipped in slowly. This time it was not a burn, more like a sting. A sting from the world's largest bee.
The table under my face was soaked with tears.
I swear the nurse twisted the needle as she took it out.
"All done," she was almost chuckling.
I stood up, weak in the knees and crying.
The silk of my panties hurt my cheeks and then my jeans made it feel like my bottom was on fire, inside and out.
I limped out of the room, down the hallway and past the patients in the waiting room, wondering if any of them would suffer what I had today.
The drive home was painful and I slept on my stomach for three days.
