Not quite familiar with the street, I amble on uncertainly until I see the faint glow of a porch bulb on an otherwise pitch black street. I check the address that she had sms-ed me on my mobile phone before entering. I am right. This is the place.
I knock and the door opens instantaneously. She looks beautiful – a slight trace of lipstick, neatly done eyebrows and a lovely cascade of long hair, almost as dark and magical as the night itself.
“I almost gave up on you. Thought you might never turn up”, says she.
“Uh…well. Sorry I guess I am quite late”, I mutter a nervous apology.
“I normally don’t wait for my customers. Please don’t be late again”.
“Looks like this is your first time, huh?” she asks with a naughty twinkle in her eye.
“Yes…” I blush.
“Don’t worry. I will take good care of you. But I hope you know my charges. They are higher than a few others in my profession. Hope you are ok with it”.
“Yeah, as long as you are good, I don’t mind it”.
“Ok. Cool. So shall we begin?”
“You seem to be in a hurry to get done with it. Don’t worry, that’s how all first timers are”, she winks and flashes a smile as I remain speechless.
“Fine get comfortable on it”, she beckons to a recliner and I do as I am told.
After 30 min
“Yeah. So tell me. Was I as good as you thought?”
“Certainly. I will surely remember you the next time, just in case.”
“Thanks. But please take an appointment with my secretary a week in advance and arrive on time. And, do take good care of your teeth. I suggest you floss regularly. I just filled up a cavity so go easy with your teeth for 2 days and avoid eating hard stuff”, she advised.
“Thank you doctor, I’ll remember that”, said I and walked out of her clinic into the inky black night. 😉
