"Spit in the basin"
"I said spit in the basin"
"Beta, co-operate. I will buy you that doll"
And it was over! Her mom had been furious with little Ani. The moment that they were out of the dentist's cabin, her mom had started scolding her. The dream of the doll was shattered but nevertheless, she did enjoy the big cup of chocolate ice cream. Ani was six year old at that time.
"My tooth is aching!"
The second visit to dentist was when she was in tenth standard. The doctor told her that plague had destroyed her teeth. The doctor had informed her that since her teeth were crooked, she was more prone to tooth plague and decay. He had advised her for braces.
"Yes or you will face many dental problems later in your life"
"Oh ok, then I will put braces"
"Good girl! Please come on Thursday"
"Sure, Doctor! Thanks"
She never went. She had hated the sound of it. She had heard about the problems that people with braces face - the problem in speech, the maintenance, and the other related natak. "I am not getting those braces!", she said to herself. She thought that the doctor was emphasising only because crooked teeth looks bad. It is not "aesthetically-pleasing". As for other problems, she assumed that they wouldn't be as bad.
So the moral of the story is...never try to ignore warning signs.
