BEAUTY CALLS Episode 10 – 11 by RUTHIE LEE



“who is this?” Louis asked with a small grin on his face referring to me..
“this’ happened to be the new house keeper who’s replacing Jose” Linc said and moved his creamy blonde hair back with a smirk..
“hi I’m Selene” I said sounding polite…
“I’m Louis” he said and smiled fully,
I nod even though I know his name already. The three boys kept staring at me but I didn’t look at any of them cause I was feeling pretty weird..
“okay! Who wants breakfast??!!!” Wendy yelled from the stairs and everyone attention went to her
“oh you bet I do” Lance said and walked away to meet his sister and then the two other boys followed.. Endy looked at me and he made eye contact it seems like he wanted to say something but he just sighed and said
“come-on let’s join the others” he walked away but I stood there catching my breath slowly
I heard Mrs Ginger’s voice and I turned to see her coming down from the stairs and Wendy rolling her eyes..
“where are those familiar voices coming from” Mrs Ginger said and the three boys called “granny” at the same time each giving her a careful hug not to shatter her weak bones..
“who you’ve all grown so much, oh Louis my favourite look at you, you’re a man now” Mrs Ginger said and placed her hands on his cheeks
“no fair grandma I used to be your favorite” Lance said faking a pout
“yeah you use to be, not until puberty hit you and you turned out to be a real douche bag” Wendy said and Lance snarled at her..
“but still Louis’s the youngest how come he’s the one who gets to look more like a man, we all grew together” Linc said and faked a pout too making Mrs Ginger and Louis laugh.
“no dear, you all look so manly especially you Linc, but your father always complain about you two being too playful and leaving all the work for Louis too finish and any boy who sets his mind to work and forgot plays is known to be a real man, you judge from the inside not the outside” Mrs Ginger explained to the boys but Lance groaned
“whatever grams, I’m hungry as fuck is breakfast ready or what?” Lance asked and removed his backpack throwing it on the couch and storming into the kitchen. “yeah me too” Linc said and head into the kitchen
“you guys should hold your horses, I cooked okay!” Wendy yelled
“you cooked?” Louis asked with a smile and Wendy playfully glared at him.. “don’t push it Louis” she said and louis laughed and shook his head negatively..
Everyone was seated around the dining table excluding Wendy and I we were busy filling everyone’s plate with the meal we just prepared and the three boys couldn’t stop smiling, cause it’s their favourite.. After everyone’s plate was full and Wendy and I sat down..
Louis was sitting opposite Wendy, Linc was sitting beside Wendy and opposite Lance who was sitting beside Endy who was opposite me, I don’t know why I always end up sitting opposite him..
“so.. You eat with us right?.. Just like Josie do” Lance said and I just glance at him and turned to my food.
Josie must have been really close to them, real close.
“so.. How was China?” Wendy asked the triplets
“it was fun,” Lance and Linc said the same time and threw each other a smile while Louis just scoffed
“fun, for you guys, I had to do everything there while you guys hang out with different groups of people everyday drinking” Louis deadpanned and Wendy gasped
“you two are such jerks, you let my baby do all the work that you two idiots were supposed to be doing” Wendy half yelled but the two boys didn’t give any emotion or look at her they just continued eating..
“this food is wonderful, it’s better than mom’s I’ve got to admit” Lance said and Wendy suddenly smiled
“you know mom’s cooking talent actually rubbed off on me when I was born” Wendy said and Lance and Linc laughed making Louis and Endy chuckle too
“yeah right, I remembered when you tried cooking us mac and cheese, I almost died that day the food wasn’t just worst it was out of this world” Lance said and Wendy huffed and threw her spoon at him, but gladly he caught it and gave her a smile..
“so does that mean it was you that made this?” Louis asked giving me a smile and all eyes turned to me..
I nodded cause my mouth was full.. “wow you’re not only beautiful but also great in cooking” Lance said and I pass him one of my thank you smile..
I looked up at Endy and he was looking at me, I stared at him back and suddenly remembered that “feeling”.. I didn’t know I was still staring at him until Mrs Ginger touched me.. And I yelp
“was I interrupting something?” Mrs Ginger asked looking back and forth between me and Endy
“interrupting what?” Endy suddenly asked
“oh never mind” Mrs Ginger said with a smile while I just faced my food.
Breakfast was different that morning, different in a good way because of the triplets, they make everyone smile and they’re very lively and I think out of all of them Lance is the obdurate one..
I cleaned the dining room and did the dishes whilst the others were in the living room laughing and joking with the triplets, such a complete and happy family, I’m jealous. I was never born with any sibling, my dad’s dead and my mom doesn’t even stay home, she just comes home during midnight after work.
Cause I’d love to have a wonderful happy family breakfast with my own family..
After doing the dishes, I cleaned the dishes and went to clean the Garden since I’m doing that now because of Endy..
As I passed through the living room I saw everyone but not Endy and stopped on my tracks when Wendy called me..
“where are you going?” she asked
“to er.. Clean the Garden” I replied
“oh dear why don’t you rest you must be tired” Mrs Ginger said
“no grandma I’m perfectly fine” I said, I can never get tired
“okay dear do as you wish” she said with a smile
I nod and glanced at the boys whose eyes were completely on me, I threw them a small smile and walked away..
I walked to the huge garden behind the house and as I walked in the small gate, I grabbed a rake ..
As I walked through the trimmed and beautiful bushes I found Endy seating on the first garden bench under a shady tree..
His eyes was close and his face were facing upward with his arms folded
I stared at his face and then at then at his lips.. I didn’t know why the hell I stared at his lips and thankfully my female subconscious scolded me for it and I calm down and looked away.
I quietly walked passed him but halt upon hearing my name from him.
Damn it
I turned and he opened his eyes and turned to me, “yes?” I said
He sighed and then stood up..
“look, you don’t have to clean the Garden anymore” he said
Well that’s great news..
“why?” I asked, innocently like I’m not happy about it
“I just told you to do that cause.. Well.. I have my reasons, but you don’t have to do it, you’re just the house keeper not the Gardener okay!” he said and I nod.. This is amazing less work for me and more free time, it’s not like I don’t like doing all these works its just that I get bored doing it.. And boredom is not in my vocabulary..
“well.. Okay! Thank you” I said formally while he smiled..
His forest green eyes pierced into mine with him still smiling at me.. And I just can’t look away cause it feels like there was something in it that I need to know something everlasting and something that says “FOREVER”..
as we both stared at each other different kinds of strange feelings start to flow in me and when I tried to put all of them together in one place, I Couldn’t, but then I manged to figure something out but which my subconscious figured out first and asked me
“are you love with Endy? Endymion?!!”
I suddenly gasped breaking the eye contact between Endy and I..
No way I am not in love with Endy, I cannot cause then I’ll be putting his life in danger.. And I don’t want anyone’s life to be in danger again because of me.. I gape at my thoughts of maybe being in love with Endy.. He looked at me bewilderingly not actually knowing what the hell is wrong with me..
Well too bad he doesn’t know what is wrong with me, cause I know. I think I’m starting to like you Endy!! And that can not happen, I moved back not knowing I dropped the goddamned rake on the floor and when I stepped on it, it catapulted back, hit me in the forehead and gave me a stupid bloody injury around my ankle and made me fall to the ground
Fucking great.

I winced glaring at the rake like it was it’s fault when it was clearly mine..
Endy suddenly steps forward and gasped, he moved his hand forward gesturing for me to take it and help myself up, enduring my bleeding wound, I fixed my palm in his and he helped me up,
And there it was again, that feeling.. I gasped heavily not wanting to let go, but Endy suddenly let’s go of my hand breathing like he just ended a marathon race, and crying out a simple “oh my god” softly and I think he felt it too..
Ohhh.. That feeling was amazing and it felt better this time and it was making me tear up .. I glance at my palm then at him and before I knew it he steps forward and kissed me..
What the f..
I quickly Push him away sobbing.. Oh my goodness, he is going to die.. I said within me as droplets of tears dropped from my eyes.


** Endy’s pov **
I didn’t know how I suddenly kissed Selene or why I kissed her but it was like I was told to do so.. But she suddenly pushed me away and wore a sour expression on her face, droplets of tears fell down from her eyes rapidly as she looked at me..
Wow, she must hate me so much
“i-I’m.. S-sorry” I stuttered feeling guilty for what I just did.. After our contacting I felt that amazing feeling and suddenly I felt I should kiss her. What I’d wrong with me! I can’t believe kissing her can irritate her so much that she’s actually in tears.
“y-you.. A-are you okay?” was what she asked me, surprising me, I thought she was going to smack my ghost out..
“am I okay?” I asked her and she nods and cleaned her tears making the rim of her eyes red and making her look cute and she stared at me with a confused face
“I’m fine, but the main question is are you okay?” I asked her pointing to her bleeding ankle, she sighed and stood properly before saying
“it’s okay I’m fine”,
She adjusted the waist of her short and mumbled “way for wearing a short” under her breath and then picked the rake.. She looked at me from head to toe and shook her head negatively..
“but seriously are you okay? You don’t feel any flares in your body?” she asked softly and lowly but I shook my head negatively..
Why does she keep asking me if I’m okay, I am fine I’m perfectly fine, she should be the one who’s supposed to be getting questions from me.
“okay!” she breathed out.

“but Selene you have to get that treated or it will get infected we’re practically standing on dirt” I said and she nods
Glad, she agreed with me
“come-on In, I’ll give it a first aid” I said and she moved forward but suddenly winced
“want’s wrong” I asked
“it hurts, when it get into contact with breezes” she said squeezing her smooth face, and staring at her injury
“okay, well do you want me to give you a piggy back ride instead of you walking inside?” I asked and her head suddenly snapped up and looked at me..
“Er.. No it’s still the same thing as long as you keep moving the wind will still pierce it’s way through it” she said
She has a point
“well then you just have to endure the pain till we get inside the house” I said and she nods and starts to walk forward slowly, counting every steps. I assisted her by holding her hand, thinking she’d be mad I suddenly flinched when she glance at me but she didn’t complain she just let me help her.
I got her inside through the back there and luckily that’s was the Closest way to our storage room where the first aid kit was.
We got into the well cleaned storage room thanks to Selene who has been very hardworking, I told her to sit on one of the three chairs that stood firmly at the corner of the room.
And then my eyes searched the shelves for the medium sized first aid box, we keep first aid boxes around every corner of the house in case of any accidents and the biggest one is in the kitchen..
I grabbed the first aid and walked up to Selene who was starubf at her feet (ankle) looking at the way blood slowly drop down from her narrow cut.
I bend on one knee in front of her and opened the first aid box. I took out the cotton wool to clean her wound but she quickly stopped me.
“oh.. No it’s okay I can do it myself” she said and held my arm
“it’s okay I can handle this just sit and relax” I said huskily my gaze piercing through hers, she gulped loudly and nodded.
I cleaned the wound and while i was about to put the iodine I warned her “it’s going to sting a little” I said.
I gently dipped the cotton wool in the iodine and inserted it on top her injury , I thought she would wince or flinch but she didn’t , I looked up at her to see if she was making a “I-should-endure-this-stinging” look .
But instead she held a very serious look on her face and was staring at me way too awkwardly, I looked away and faced what I was doing but I still felt she was looking at me..
After everything I gently cover the wound up with a small sized bandaged, and she stood up..
“thank you” she said not making eye contact with me.
“uhm.. you’re welcome” I said and placed the first aid box back to the shelf, we both followed the storage room and then down a narrow hallway and came out to the living room..
“Endy where were you, we were just talking about you and how popped on your pant on your fourth birthday just when you were about blowing out the candles” Wendy my talkative sister suddenly said and I arched my eyebrows at her,
“did you have to remember that?” I said and Wendy shrugged while the triplets laughed
“where’s grandma I thought she was with you guys” I asked
“oh she got tired and went to rest” Wendy replied and shrugged
“or… You said something hurtful and annoying to her and she got Angry and went to her room?” I asked with every possibility that it’s what happened. .
“you know me too much Endy” Wendy smiled at me while I rolled my eyes, she’s the only treating grandma differently. I just don’t get why she hates her so much..
Selene suddenly want to sit down on a single chair staring at the floor I just don’t understand what’s with her all of a sudden.

“oh my goodness Selene what happened to your leg?” Wendy suddenly asked making everyone’s attention land on her..
“i-i got a little lesion from the garden but it’s nothing to worry about I’m okay” Selene said with an assuring smile and my sister nodded. Wendy looked away but the three goofballs kept staring at her and seriously I wasn’t happy about it.
“oh yeah guys I’ll be back” Wendy said and went upstairs..
“so Selene tell us about yourself” Linc said with a smile..
“uhm.. Okay what do you guys want to know about me.” she asked nicely..
“do you have a boyfriend?” Lance suddenly asked and I rolled my eyes..
Every eyes anticipated on hearing Selene’s answer but I didn’t cause I know she doesn’t.
“I do” Selene said with a smile
“you do?” Louis asked and Selene hesitantly nodded, she’s lying I could see it.
“darn it, and I thought I had a chance, your boyfriend must be so.. handsome, am I right?” Lance said with a playfull smile, Selene laughed and shook her head negatively.
“what? So your boyfriend’s not a pretty boy?” Lance asked
“it’s not that. I.. I was just joking I don’t have a boyfriend” Selene said and Lance smiled and stood up “then if that’s the case I better get a ring down town to propose to you” he said and I smiled, lance. Always the playful one he has a girlfriend, Alyssa so annoying as full of her self.
Lance starts to walk away but stopped when Linc asked him where he was going to
“like I said earlier, I have to go down to get a ring for Selene,..
Linc and Louis gave him a “are-you-serious” look while he laughed and said
“Nah.. I’m just kidding I have to go pee”..
Selene laughed covering her mouth and she looked so beautiful we both made eye contact all of a sudden and she flinched and looked away,
Getting over Lance and his jokes I took my heels and went to my room to rest,..
~°~°~° Selene’s pov °~°~°~
After chatting with the triplets who were fun to talk with cause they were very funny especially Lance and Linc, Louis is funny but he just sometime stay quiet.
It was lunch time and I just finished preparing lunch for the whole family, lance and Linc were the First one to get to the dining room, while Louis offered to help me set the table, after we both set the table I thanked him and before I could go get Mrs. Ginger and Wendy I saw them both coming down but not together, everyone was Complete, except Endy,
“go get Endy dear,” Mrs Ginger said, even the sound of his name make me shiver now..
“o-kay” I said standing up from the chair
“no it’s okay you should start eating I’ll go get Endy” Louis said standing up also, oh he’s so nice
“no, don’t worry I’ll get him” I suddenly said cause Mrs Ginger suddenly gave me a look.
Louis smiled and sat down, while I cuss Endy for not being here under my breath..
I climbed the quiet stairs and walked through the hallway, then I came across Endy room, I sighed remembering the last time I was here when he was being so rude to me.. But it’s a good thing he’s changed a little..
I knocked on his door but there was no reply, I knocked again but there was no reply, I sighed hating this..
I opened the door softly and walked in, and there he was laying on his bed his eyes closed and body facing up, he’s asleep.
I was about to leave seeing he’s asleep but I stopped when I heard his voice.
“what do you want?” he asked and I turned to see him already settled down.
“i-i came to call you, breakfast…i -i mean L-Lunch is ready” I stuttered
God. Why the hell am I stuttering
“oh.. Okay,” he said and stood up and moved his hair back,
And that view was breathtaking.. Whoa what is wrong with me.

“Selene” Endy suddenly called me as I was about to leave again and I turned, he took a step closer to me And I froze, what does he want now.
“I have been thinking, a lot” he sighed out
Okay he’s been thinking and how does that have anything to do with me.
“about you” he said and I think I stopped breathing.
He said and took another step forward towards me
“I haven’t felt like this towards anyone before”
*felt* what does he mean..
“and I’m going to regret if I don’t do this now cause someone’s totally pushing me to do so and I want to” he said, and moved forward and my breath hitched upon the zero distance between our body, our chest pressed against each other’s when he pulled up and he glanced at my lips..
Oh my God, is he about to kiss me..
I wanted to move but still I wanted it to happen..
Suddenly he closed the distance between our lips..
