"Alright, everything looks good. You can take a seat right over there." The eye doctor said, walking you over to the waiting room. "Thank you, Doctor Roderich." You replied before he left. That day is when you bought your first pair of contacts. You watched doctors passing by, noticing how many of them wore glasses as well. You took yours off and rubbed the smudged lens on your shirt. Alfred, one of your close friends, worked there, and you were hoping to get him as your trainer.
"Hello. Are you _______?" A deep voice grumbled. You looked up to see a tall, blond man standing in front of you. His stoic features stared at you in an intimidating way. "Y-yes..." You squeaked out. Why was he so scary?!
"Excuse me, Berwald. This is the wrong patient." Roderich informed him.
"Mm." The man with the silver rimmed glasses walked away.
"Your doctor will be here in a few minutes."
You thanked him once again and waited eagerly.
"Hey!" Someone yelled and caught your attention. Dirty blond hair, bright blue eyes, and a wide grin. He wore a matching uniform like everyone else who worked there.
"Alfred~!" You practically shrieked.
"Woah there, kiddo. I'm just training you to put contacts in!" He laughed, walking you over to another room.
"Do you know that Berwald guy? He's really scary..."
"Yeah, I guess he's pretty creepy. But he just moved here, so he doesn't know English that good."
Alfred shrugged and sat down in the chair across from you. Between both of you was a table holding a large mirror. "First, wash your hands. Don't forget your fingertips!"
"Okay dude, here are your contacts." He said, and handed you two small packets filled with solution. You clawed at the packaging in an attempt to open it.
"It won't open."
"Come on, ________! Don't be such a wimp. Try again!"
And sure enough, you finally ripped it open.
"Now just scoop it out."
"Yeah! You're doing good. Put it on your fingertip."
You balanced the clear lens on your index finger like you were told.
"Okay, so what you have to do first is this: take your eyelids and hold them open. Don't blink! Use your pointer finger for the top, and your thumb for the bottom." Alfred demonstrated. You copied him, waiting for the next step.
"Take your finger and... just touch your eye." He looked in the mirror while inserting the lens. Now one of his eyes were green. "I have to touch my eye?"
"Well... how else are you going to do it?"
Whenever you tried to put the contact in your eye, it fell off or you kept blinking your eye. "I have an idea." he motioned you over, "Come here."
"Put this contact in my eye."
"My friend Gil scratched my cornea when I let him do it, but that's okay!" He exclaimed, giving you a fresh lens from a random packet. He leaned his head back and stretched his eye open. You put the lens into his eye with a little hesitation... careful not to scratch his cornea.
"Alfie, it's in now~" You laughed at him. "What's so funny?" Alfred looked into the mirror. In his left eye was a green contact, and his right eye had a violet one. "Dude! You could've told me they were different colors!!"
You looked into the mirror while holding your eyelids. You made sure that the contact had enough solution before putting it in your eye.
"Did I get it on...?" You looked around blinking repeatedly.
"You did it! Good job, kiddo." Alfred leaned over and kissed your cheek.
"Now I have to teach you how to take them out."
