In intriguing scenes, high-school student Miranda Jones (17) has recently plucked up the courage to ask her Mum, Sharon, to book a GP appointment so she can urgently get on the pill. When Sharon asked why she needed to get on the pill so soon, Ms. Jones explained she needed it for ‘um… period pains.’
‘Yeah, my period pain is really bad. Like, um, ouch!’, Miranda told The Obiter.
When we asked whether this was a recent development, Ms. Jones indignantly responded ‘I’ve always had problems with my period and the related pain, I just didn’t want to tell people about it. Grr! I really hate how much it hurts in my.... stomach?’
Although Ms. Jones claims this is unrelated, our inside sources suggest the 17-year-old, after attending a formal with her Mum’s friend’s son, has just scored her first real boyfriend - a sharp-dressing, Tarocash-wearing Year 12, Chris Robson.
After we reached out to Jones’ mother, she conceded she had never heard her daughter complain about period pains before, but she had heard many fascinating stories about her new boyfriend, Chris.
‘Of course I’ve booked her the the GP appointment,’ said Sharon. ‘I’m glad she’s actually come to me with this, it’s very important to me that she and Chris practice safe and smart.... ways of dealing with her period pains.’
The Obiter awaits further comment from all parties involved, although a source has informed us that Chris appears to be walking with a spring in his step since the news was announced.
More to come.
