DOCTOR CUTIE 👩🔬
[Love cures All]
By: Racheal Dennis||
|| Aurora ||
My gaze focus at the entrance, wondering why Brittany isn’t here yet.
Javier and I have long arrived here,,, we’ve being here since 4:15pm, now it’s 4:56pm.
“I wonder what is keeping her!” I muttered to myself.
“Aurora!!” A finger snapped in my face brought me back to reality.
Javier narrows his eyes as if trying to figure something out.
“You seem worried” he states.
“Yeah,,, is something bothering you?”
“Come on, you clearly have something on your mind,,, do tell me”
“It’s nothing, really”
He folds his arms across his chest and lays back on his chair.
He studies my expression, I put up a fake smile to deceive him. But I seem to be failing at it, I’m very worried about Britt and that is something I can’t hide.
“Aurora, tell me the truth, tell me what is bothering you”
Ok,,, I guess I will have to tell him the truth.
“Well,,, I’m supposed to be meeting my friend here 26mins ago, but she still isn’t here, I’m scared something might be wrong”
“Wait,,,, hold up a sec,,, I thought we came here because you wanted to make it up to me”
I blinked innocently and shows him my cutest puppy eyes.
“Well,,, it’s,,, you know,,,”
“I don’t know, tell me”
“Taking you out is the only way I could leave the mansion effortlessly”
He bangs his hand on the table light and narrowed his eyes down at me.
“So,,, you tricked me again!”
“Kinda” I blinked innocently.
He falls back on his chair, clinging to his heart.
“Funk! I feel so used”
“You just broke my heart!” He huffed and look away from me.
I stand up and went to his side, I pinched his cheeks gently.
“Awwwn,,, is wittle Javier angry?”
“Of course, I am!”
“What will I do to make you forgive me?”
He stays silent and did a little thinking.
“How about we visit our favorite place tomorrow?”
“That’s your price?”
“Ok,, but,,, ”
“Rora?!” Britt’s voice cuts me off.
I turn and see Brittany, she look so worn out. I quickly rush to her and take her into my arms.
“Ow!” She winces.
I pull away from her with a frown.
“Are you injured?”
“Come on, let’s sit down first”
I lead her back to our table and help her sit down.
She looks at me, confusion clearly stated in her eyes.
“Oh, let me introduce you,,,, Britt, meet Javier, the General’s younger brother and my only friend in the mansion”
I turn to Javier.
“Meet Britt, my best, best friend”
Javier stretches his hand and shakes Britt’s.
“Hello, nice to meet you” he said.
Then there is an awkward silence,,, I guess that’s what happens when two strangers meet.
“So,,, I’mma gonna go to the restroom” Javier said.
I tell he’s tryna give us some privacy.
“Ok,,, take your time, please”
He nods and leaves.
I turn back to Britt and take her hand in mine.
“Britt, what happened? What did Eric do?”
Her eyes turns red.
“He has been lying to me, Rora!” She said in a broken voice.
“He has been lying about what?”
“All these years, I have put so much trust in him,,, I believed him and him wholeheartedly,,, but Eric took me for granted,,, he has been lying to my face,,, ”
She sobs, I rub her shoulder gently.
“What did he lie about?”
“I walked in on him with a woman,,, they,, they,,,,, ”
She couldn’t complete her sentence.
“Have you talked to him? Who knows,,, what you saw might just be a misunderstanding”
“I did,,, he said he owes me no explanation,, and when I pushed it too hard he slapped me and left,,, ”
I bang on the table.
“That bastard! I have always suspected he’s an unfaithful dog! And besides who gave him to right to slap you!”
“The woman came by later and told me she’s pregnant for him,,, that’s why I didn’t come early as planned,,,,, Rora, I’m so heartbroken,
Why did Eric do this to me, I love him,,, I love him so much”
She sobs harder. I put my chair closer to hers and hug her.
“Don’t worry,,, I will make Eric come back and beg you,,, also he isn’t worth your tears.
Don’t waste your precious tears on a dog like him,,, just let him go,,, take a look at yourself in the mirror, you are young, beautiful and sexy, any man would kill to have you by their sides.
So Eric is a fool,, a big fool and trust me he doesn’t know what he’s lost”
She didn’t stop crying,,,
“But I love him, I don’t think I can forget about him”
“Of course you will forget about him soon,,, there are better men than him in the world”
I continue telling her encouraging words as she sobs.
|| Javier ||
“Javier!” Someone called as I step out of the restroom.
I raise my head and see my friend, Maxwell.
We quickly did our bro handshake, bumping our shoulders.
“Jesus! Max, what are you doing in New York? I thought you were in Japan”
“I came back for my grandma’s funeral”
I take a step back and view him.
“Man, you’ve changed” I said.
“You too, I couldn’t recognize you at first sight”
“Are you serious?”
“Yeah, I mean I saw you sitting over there”
He points towards Aurora.
“I saw you sitting with your girlfriend but I wasn’t sure it was you, until you stood up and head here that I confirmed it was you”
We shared a laugh.
“Well, it’s good to see you, how is your wife and kid?” I asked.
“They are fine but I left them in Japan, my wife just had our second child,, she can’t go through the stress”
“Wow! You have your second child already?!”
“Ok, it’s official,,, I really need to get married now”
We laughed, he turns and look at Aurora. She is saying something to her friend, it’s obvious she is trying to cheer her friend up.
“Your girlfriend is hot,,, what are you waiting for, hurry up and propose”
I look at Aurora and smile, I wish she is my girlfriend.
“She is not my girlfriend!” I told him.
He frowns and give me the ” really” kinda look.
“We are just friends”
“But I think you make a perfect match and I know you think of her not just as a friend”
I know I like Aurora but I want to be sure of what I’m feeling,,, I want to know if what I’m feeling for her is romantic or platonic.
“You better make a move on her before someone else snatches her from you” he advised me.
“I heard you,,, but I need to leave now, maybe we can catch up some other time”
“Yeah, take care, bro”
Then we parted, he went back to his table and I head back to Aurora and her friend.
|| Aurora ||
“You aren’t gonna beg him, he cheated on you and he deserves to,,,,,”
“Ahem!” A clearing of throat cuts me off.
“Aurora, I think it’s time we head back to the mansion,, my brother wouldn’t like it if we come back late”
“But my friend”
Britt squeeze my hand.
“Don’t worry, you can go, I will be fine”
“Are you sure?!”
“Yeah, I will call you later”
“I will be fine, I promise”
I nod and stand up.
“Don’t forget to call me”
I give her a brief hug and turn to Javier.
“Shall we?” He asked.
I wave at britt before going out with him.
After a fast and short drive, we made it to the mansion.
“Javier, I’m kinda tired, I think I need a long warm bath,,, so I will be in my room”
“Alright,,,, I think I need a bath too, so see you later”
I head towards the stairs that leads to my room.
I got in my room and fall on my bed, a long sigh leaves my mouth.
Not up to five minutes, I hear a knock on my door. I stand up and rush to the door, I open it and see Brandon standing outside.
“Doctor Aurora, the General wants to see in his room”
“Why does he wants to see me?”
“I can’t say”
Hmm, I just got back, I’m feeling tired and I need a good rest, I can’t attend to him tonight.
Maybe I should lie.
“Doctor Aurora, please come with me”
“No, I can’t. Tell the General I’m sick and it contagious!”
“Tell him I’m sick”
“Just tell him that, please”
“Yes, ma’am!” He leaves.
I shut my door and breath out.
“Phew! I can get good sleep tonight, no one to order me and force me into massaging them till dawn” I said to myself.
I take off my shoes and jump on my bed.
|| Ian ||
“General, doctor Aurora can’t give you a massage tonight” Brandon reports.
“She said she is sick and it’s contagious”
“That’s nonsense!” I growled.
This doctor is getting on my nerves,,,, she was very well this morning,,, she must be lying.
“Let’s go to her room!”
“Sir, she said it’s contagious”
I glared at him and he keeps quiet immediately.
I don’t care if she is really sick, she broke my rule,, she have to face the consequences!

♪♪ I love it when you call me senorita♪♪
♪♪ I wish I could pretend I didn’t need you♪♪
♪♪ But every touch is ooh la la, is true la la♪♪
I shake my hips to the music playing on my phone as I sing along, and combing my hair at the same time.
I just took a shower and I’m already in my nightie.
I drop the comb on my bed and continue swaying my body to the music, the music got in my head and I close my eyes involuntarily.
Suddenly my door burst open and I turn.
The General stands by the door, Brandon standing next to him with two other guards behind them.
The General look so furious!
“I heard you are sick,,, but I can see you are very healthy and full of energy!!” He growled loudly.
What should I do now,,,, maybe I should act sick.
I start coughing.
“General,,,” cough “I’m cold” cough “I was just trying to do some exercise” cough “to keep myself warm” cough vehemently.
I start shaking to prove my point.
“Shut up! You think you can fool me with your weak acting!!”
I jumped into my bed and cover myself with my blanket.
“I’m really sick, General believe me”
“Sick or not, you must receive your punishment for breaking my rule!!”
No, no, no,,,, he’s gonna give me military punishment.
I quickly jump up from my bed and knelt in front of him.
“My most handsome General in the whole world,,, please forgive me,,,,,”
“You don’t know what I look like, so don’t call me handsome!!”
Wait,, he’s right. I’ve never seen his face, he’s always wearing mask.
An idea crosses my mind, I stand up and smile.
“Right, I don’t know what my boss look like,,,, how about we remove the mask and see the handsome face behind it”
I reach out my hand to remove his mask, but he catches my hand quickly in a tight grip.
“Don’t. Touch. My. Mask!!”
I nod quickly and bite my lower lip to prevent any painful grunts from coming out.
“Guards take her to the dark cell, I will punish her tomorrow!”
Not that please,,,, I hate dark places and I get scared,,,, it makes me feel as if those bad people are coming to get me.
I shake my head.
“General,,, we can talk about this,,, how about you give me another punishment?”
“No!” He turns to the guards. “Take her to the dark cell!!”
“No, no, no, no,,,,, ”
But they didn’t listen to me, they grab my arm and pull me outside despite my pleading.
“General, General, let’s negotiate,,”
|| Ian ||
“General, are you sure about this? I mean, you can’t sleep without her,,,,”
I send him a harsh glare, that shut him up.
“What do you mean? That she has become my sleeping pills now?!”
“No, sir, but,,,, ”
“But nothing!! My insomnia is cured, I can sleep whenever I please,,,,,, and it has nothing to do with that stupid doctor!!”
“But she makes you fall asleep quickly”
“Shut up if you don’t know what to say!! Now listen, I will prove to you that I can sleep without her!!”
“Ok!” He said in a tone that says he doesn’t believe me.
“Do you think I can’t?!”
“I dare not, sir!!”
“Better! Let’s go!!”
I have being tolerating that girl because Brandon thinks I can’t sleep without her by my side,,,,
But tonight I’m gonna prove him wrong!
|| Aurora ||
The guards took me to a building outside the mansion, we walked through a long corridor before we stopped at a door.
They open the door and pushes me in roughly, I hissed out in pain when one of them pierced my fragile skin with his long nails.
“Couldn’t you be more careful?! Or didn’t you your mother teach you how to treat a lady?!” I scold them.
“We are just following an order, ma’am!” One of them said.
“Whatever!!” I said.
Then before I knew it, they shut the door.
At first I thought I suddenly went blind, as everywhere is pitch black. The General wasn’t kidding when he called this place “The dark cell”
Humph, luckily I was smart enough to sneak my phone along. I reach into my panties and bring out my phone.
Gross,,,,, I know!
I mean who hides phone in their panties, right?. Well, the General left me no choice.
I turn on the flashlight and see a small bench in a corner, I walk towards it and sit down. I look around the walls, trying to find a window but found none.
I guess that’s why it’s so dark.
“Hmm, stupid General, you think this will scare me,,, hehehe,,, I came prepared. I can stay like this till tomorrow morning”
I lean against the wall and close my eyes.
|| Ian ||
The little girl stands by the edge of the cliff, she shakes her head as she stares at me.
Her clothes torn all over and dirty, blood gushing from her forehead.
She points accusing finger at me.
“It’s all your fault,,, it’s all your fault,,”
“No, it’s not,,, I didn’t do it,,, I,,,,”
“It’s your fault,,, you killed them,,, I will kill you too!”
She made to charge at me, but loses her balance and fall.
I lung forward and reach out, but it was too late, I caught nothing but air.
Feeling frustrated and guilty, I screamed.
I open my eyes as I say her name.
Brandon strides in and rush to me. He knelt down in front of me and wipes off the small beads of sweat on my forehead.
“General, is your nightmares back?”
He didn’t say anything but I hear him snicker.
“Why are you laughing? What’s funny?”
“Nothing, sir, but,,,,” he trails off.
“I told you to pardon the doctor, only when she is around can you get a good sleep,, but you didn’t listen to me”
“Shut up! That doctor must have jinx me!”
He poured water in a glass and hands it to me.
“So,,, General, are you still gonna go back to sleep?”
“No, it’s morning already, I will just,,,,, ”
His laughter cuts me off and I frown at him. Instead of sobering up, his laughter increases.
I slammed the glass on the nightstand.
“Will you stop laughing?”
He sobers up a little.
“Sorry, sir, but it’s just 10:57pm!”
“What?!,,, How?,,, But I slept for a very long time”
“No, sir, you slept only fifteen minutes!”
“Yeah, you went to bed around 10:43pm!”
“Damnit!” I exclaimed.
So,,, it is true that I must keep that doctor by my side?
I remember those nights she was by my side, I didn’t have any nightmares,,,,, why?
Does she have something to do with my nightmares?
“Sir!” Brandon waves his hand in front of my eyes.
I glared at him and he quickly removes his hand.
“Should I get the doctor?”
I gritt my teeth.
“Doctor! Doctor!! Doctor!! No!!”
“But you need her now,,,”
“I don’t need her,,, I have been tolerating her rudeness because I feel like I need her,,, I don’t want her here!”
“Well,, since you don’t need her, should I send her out of the mansion?”
“Yes!! Send her away right now!!”
“Yes, sir!” He turn and head for the door.
Should I really send her away?
The night is still young, I can’t possibly stay awake till dawn…
|| Brandon ||
I step out General’s room, shut the door behind me and wait outside.
I know he’s gonna change his mind very soon,,,, he has a soft spot for that doctor and no matter how well he hides it,,,, or deny it, I can still see it.
The way he looks at her is different,,,, his eyes are always full of tenderness when he looks at her.
He never tolerate anyone being rude to him,,, but he tolerates her,,,, and that says a lot.
He will call me soon, countdown with me,,,, 3, 2, 1
I quickly rushed back inside,,, I see him reach for his mask and put it on.
“Call the doctor in!”
“I thought you were gonna sleep without her today?” I tease him.
He glares at me.
“You are getting bolder everyday, you dare to question me now?!”
“Go get her!”
I turn and head towards the door.
“B-be gentle with her!”
Oh? Did I hear him correctly?
“What?!” I asked, just to be sure I heard him well.
“Be gentle with her!”
Wow! General is slowly changing,,,, caring about someone else is something new to him, very foreign.
|| Aurora ||
I’m almost dozing off when I hear footsteps coming towards my cell, I quickly reach for my phone and turn off the flashlight.
Who knows, it might be that cold-blooded animal.
I shove it back in my panties and rush to a corner,,, I sit on the floor, my chin rests on my knees and my arms wrapped around my legs.
The door open and I see Brandon come in.
“Doctor Aurora, the General wants you in his room”
I stand up, grunting and pretending I’ve got a numb feet.
“So, he’s finally come to his senses!” I said.
“Come with me, please”
I nod and follow him out.
We enter the General’s room, he standing by his glass window, staring at the night sky.
They are no stars or moon, so I wonder what he’s staring at.
“General, she is here”
The General turns and stare at me, he waves Brandon out without taking his eyes off me.
Brandon did a little bow and leaves.
“You want to see me?” I asked.
He didn’t say anything, only staring at me.
“Do you want to give me another punishment?”
He didn’t reply me, he simply walk past me to his bed and lay down.
“Give me a massage!”
I scoff,,, after keeping me in that dark, smelling cell, he wants me to massage him,, it’s never gonna happen.
I see a couch in a small area in his room, a big flat screen TV stands proudly in front of the couch.
I sit on the couch and reach for the remote control, and start flipping through channels,,, maybe I can see something interesting to watch.
“What are you doing?!” He growls.
I take a glance at him.
He’s no longer lying on his bed, he sat and was glaring daggers at me.
I ignore him and continue flipping through the channels, finally *Lucifer* pops up.
“Are you fucking deaf?! What are you doing?!!”
“Shhhh,,, I’m tryna watch a movie here!”
He stands up and takes rapidly steps towards me,,,, he stops in front of me and snatch the remote control fromm me, he turned off the TV and toss the remote across the room.
It lands on the wall and its broken pieces falls on the floor.
“Why did you do that?” I whine.
He takes my hand in a tight grip.
“I said I want a massage!!” He said and drags me to his bed.
“No, I’m not gonna do that tonight!”
“I’m tired, and besides, I’m still sick!”
“You are not sick, sick people don’t dance!”
“Well, I was getting better until you threw me in that dirty cell,,, now my fever has just returned”
“I’m sorry, General, but I can’t give you a massage tonight”
He grits his teeth and fist his hands.
“Fine, but you are not leaving this room!!”
I arch my eyebrows.
“So,,,, can I go back to my movie?”
His gaze moves to the remote and he smirks.
“By all means, yes”
Then he lays on his bed and covers himself with the blanket.
I just stand still, glaring at him, wishing I could just kill him and be free of his arrogance.
Seriously, I can’t stand him.
I grumpily sits on the table and continue watching him, soon I hear his soft snores.
Taking a closer look at his sleeping form,,, he doesn’t seem that scary when he’s sleeping.
Infact, he is an angel right now,, if only he could just take off his mask let me see his face.
“General! General!” Brandon’s panicked voice woke me up.
I sit up and see Brandon rush in, the General is already awake and he’s sitting on the couch drinking,,,,, I don’t know what he is drinking.
“General, your mother is back!” He said.
Mother? The General’s mother is still alive?
“Where is she?”
“She is heading here, sir”
Just then the door open and a gorgeous woman walks in,,,, she wore expensive clothes and jewelries.
The General stands up and walk towards her, he hugs her with a tight smile.
I blinked,,,, mother?
This is the General’s mother? She seems so young, I can hardly believe it.
“You’ve grown so tall, Ian!” She smiles warmly.
She looks around and her eyes lands on me. Her smile wipes off and replace with a deep frown.
“Who is she? And what is she doing on your bed?”
Bed? I look down and truly I’m on the General’s bed.
I quickly jump off the bed, but my leg got tangled with the sheets and I fall on my face.
“Since when did you start bringing women to your mansion?!”
The General rushes to me and help me up, he rubs my forehead gently.
“Are you alright?” He asked me calmly.
Since when does he speaks to me in a calm tone.
I stare at him in surprise, am I dreaming?
“Don’t worry, I’ll kiss the pain away” he leans forward and kisses my forehead and smiles at me.
Ok,,, it’s official,,, I’m dreaming.
“Ian, what are you doing?!” His mother asked, she has an angry expression on.
The General wraps his arm around my waist and pull me closer to him.
“Mom, meet,,,” leans in my ear and whisper. “What is your name?”
I don’t know what is happening,,, I’m too shocked to speak or do anything.
When he noticed I’m not gonna reply him, he turns to his mother.
“Mom, meet Angel, my girlfriend!”
“What?!” Brandon, his mother and I exclaimed.
