began a very thorough examination

It was three o'clock in the morning and she was nervous bout what was going on. It had taken Dr.Robasakar two hours to show up. She sat there looking into his eyes, worried, wondering whether to start mourning or celebrate. She was in her sixth month, finishing off her second trimester, they were on their way back from the seven o'clock show, "remember that part where she asked him to order that awful pizza", she asked him referring to the picture. He looked at her and smiled a nasty giddy snarl of smirk and said "I didn't like that movie. It grossed me out." He was referring to the scene where the main character was forced to have a C section. "Ah baby" she said looking up at him form the hospital bed. "Six months baby and now this" he exclaimed looking up, arms raised over his shoulders pulling down his hair. "It was not our fault," she  waited for him to settled down before going on. "He was drunk baby" and with another pause she touched her stomach and said, "I'm fine I know it."

The couple looked at each other strained, stained, neither wanted to answer. The health care provider continued her task saying "these are often routine calls, I'm just here to employ more faculties of our health care industry," she paused, looked over the women healthy stomach. "There is lots of corruption in the system, usually you're put through those meaningless test just to funnel more people through the system to make more money for said testing organization." she laughed holding the locator in her hand bearing a glove and a palm full of lubricant in the other. Beginning the examination, not causing any discomfort to the pregnant party, all three laughed insisting that the test was requested to deepen the pockets of the heads of the radiology department, "Yeah the Dean needs a new trailer for his yacht" the man said watching the work initiate.
