are you okay?” Endy asked as I suddenly lost balance and sat down back on the bed like something forceful pushed me..
Am I okay?
I don’t think I am.
“I-i don’t think I am” I said with a worried face..
“huh?” Endy asked bewilderingly
“last night I couldn’t sleep, I felt strange and well now I can’t even get on my feet, Endy I think something’s wrong with me” I complained tucking my hair behind both of my ears..
“okay uhm.. Let’s go see a doctor then, come-on I’ll help you get up” Endy said and I nod.
I definitely want to see a doctor I can’t be like this. I have to know what’s wrong with me.
Endy got down from the bed and held my hand and I clutched our fingers together and tightly… “okay now slowly get on your feet” Endy said calmly like he’s my therapist,
Not my therapist
Like he was a therapist..
I got on my feet slowly but unfortunately I didn’t feel heavy anymore, I sighed, a sigh of relief and happiness..
“what?” Endy asked
“I feel fine I can walk on my own now” I tell him and removed my hands from his
“well that’s great news but we’re still seeing a doctor” he said and I nod.
No argument in the case.
I head downstairs cause I felt hungry and met my mom preparing for work.
“hey goodmorning mom” I greeted.
“oh morning dear,” she replied
I was about to enter the kitchen when she stopped me and I turned to her swiftly.
“I saw a man in our house, he didn’t See Me but I saw him taking a glass of water upstairs, can you kindly explain who that was, to me?” she said with a curious and serious look
“that was Endy, Endymion” I replied,
She know Endy, I’ve told her about him but she hasn’t really seen him in real life but only heard about him from me.
“oh.. My goodness I had no idea that was your boyfriend I could have said hi, I thought that was some kind of gangster keeping you hostage in your room” she said and I giggled.
“mom.. You joke with everything” I said and she smiled
“well anyway honey I’m off to work, I hope Endy will still be around when I come back cause I’ll like to have a word with him” my mom said with a cheeky smile
“I hope he will” I replied and my mom shook her head negativelike and blew me a kiss before going out.
I walked in the kitchen and I glance at everywhere, I was suddenly craving for broccoli and cheese, then pizza, and then I wanted eat my favourite cereals, cheerios.. I started craving for different type of food but didn’t know where to start with.. I decided to make them all but who am I kidding I can’t do that..
But I managed to make myself spaghetti tacos and order a pizza and making hot chocolate with toasted bread.
I put all my food on the dining table, proud of myself for making such wonderful delicacy.. Endy walked in but immediately stopped on his tracks.
“I know I was getting a little smell of spaghetti but then hot chocolate covered it up and then toasted breads took over. What are all these for I can’t eat all this and I know you can’t too” Endy said and I smiled
“it’s cute of how you think this is for the both of us..” I said
“what do you mean.?” he asked
“it means I’m eating this alone” I said gesturing my hand around the food(s)
“what?. Selene I th–
“shhh..” I shunned and he flinched
“I can eat this alone okay?” I said and he shrugged and watched me..
He stood still and watched me eat breakfast Alone.. After eating the spaghetti I moved on to the pizza which has actually gotten cold but who cared I ate them it was my first time eating pizza, the pizza really did all cause I actually finish a medium sized pizza by myself and it made me full..
I gulped down a huge bottled water and stood up happily
“ahh.. I’m full” I said tapping my stomach which didn’t show any sign that I just ate cause it was still as flat as ever.
“okay now I’m afraid of you” Endy suddenly said and I turned to him.
“what is that supposed to mean” I asked
“how the hell did someone so petite like you finish all that in just ten minutes” he asked still looking at me surprisingly..
“truth be told Endy, I have no idea” I said with a simple shrug.
“anyway did you wanted to join me?” I asked
“yes I did, but you were so caught up your little ‘feast’ to even know I was standing here watching” he said almost angrily and did air quotation around the “feast”
“don’t be such a baby Endy, I haven’t touch the cheerios, hot chocolate and the toasted bread, so you can still eat them” I said with a simple smile but he didn’t reply, he just at me strangely, the way he was looking at me seemed different, like he was seeing something he’s never seen before in me.
And truth be told I got scared.
“Endy?” I called softly and he snapped out of his reverie and his gaze went from me to my food
“Er.. Don’t worry I’ll eat them” he said and walked up to me grabbing one of the toast bread and shoving it in his mouth, I knew the toasted breads would be mouth watering cause the way his eyes lit up when he chewed it shows that he’s really enjoying it.
He grabbed the mug filled with hot chocolate and started to drink it but stopped when my hands snaked around his waist.
“are you mad at me Endy?” I asked and he chuckled and removed my hands from his waist and turned to face me.
“why the hell would I be mad at you” he asked and placed his palm on my cheeks and it felt warm.
“I don’t know cause you seem kind of mad that I ate alone and you were looking at me strangely seconds ago” I said honestly
“gosh, you’re so cute” Endy laughed.
“that was a joke Selene, I was acting that anger, and the reason why I was looking at you was because..
he didn’t complete his words but moved his head close to mine like he was about to kiss me, but he wasn’t he was looking at my eyes, his gaze was fixed perfect on them piercing straightly in them..
he said still looking at them. “I knew it” he breathed out and moved back a little.
“what’s wrong” I asked .
“you tell me… Your eyes are blue” he said
Blue? My eyes are golden brown like any normal person.
“I know those eyes of yours they’re golden brown.. Like when the sun sets but I do not understand why they’re blue” Endy said and I quickly Walked to the standing mirror in a living room and I was astonished to see my eyes sparkling blue..
This is definitely not okay. I am not okay.
Endy walked behind me and I turned and hugged him..
“seriously I don’t know what to say or do” I tell him and he sighed.
“me too” he replied and his grip tightened on me..
I called though his chest and he replied.
“I have to get to work” I said
“you say work like it’s a big company or something when It’s just my house” he reprimanded
“well your house is big enough to be a company” I tell him and he laughed..
“well too bad you’re not going anywhere today, but the doctor” he said and I sighed-smiled
He’s just too caring and I’m just so lucky..
That morning I took my bath and so did Endy, but it wasn’t together, even though it almost close that we both bath together, but I scolded Endy that’s it not proper..
After changing something into more casual and more me.. My daily dressing, jean shorts and plain T-shirts, I packed my hair in ponytail for the first time, not until that formal with Endy.
Endy drove me down town, to the only hospital in town, Cassdale isn’t a big place, it’s a small town which doesn’t have much, there are other hospitals but they are not as official and rich as cassdale hospital… Which hands are in the blossoms family.
Endy parked in front of the huge hospital and we both walked in with him holding my hand, and believe me stares were coming from no where I could feel it.
“you know what I really think this blue eyes suits you better” Endy said as we got into a room..
“don’t make it a joke Endy, it’s creeping me out” I said and he gave me an apologetic look and I smiled in return.
We turned and there was a doctor seated in a black uncomfortable chair starubf at some files in his hands..
“doctor D?” Endy called and the doctor looked up..
“oh! Endymion” the doctor exclaimed and stood up
The both gave each other a not so close hug with both of them smiling from ear to ear,
After waiting for what seems like eternity the test results came out we’ve done the test like two hours ago, or less. I guess.
“Selene” I helped him and he nods
“okay well according to this results, you are… Perfectly fine nothing is wrong with you, you have no sickness nor will any sickness or disease come in the future you are perfectly healthy, and I don’t know how or why you had that headache last night like you explained but you are fine.. Perfectly fine.” doctor D said and I nod.
“okay thank you then.” endy said and I smiled to the doctor too.
“no problem” he replied with a smile
“is there any other thing we should know?” Endy asked
“the only thing you should know Is that you both should always stay healthy” the doctor said and I nod.
“thank you” Endy said with a smile.
“no problem, you have a beautiful wife by the way” the doctor suddenly blurts out.
“pardon?” Endy asked
“nothing, just go on” he said and Endy nods, and held my hand And we both walked out.
Nothing’s wrong with me, I’m perfectly fine, that’s what doctor D said, who I just learned his full name is Daniel..
He said I’m perfectly fine but I know I’m not. Something’s wrong with me, something’s wrong in me.. Something’s going on in me.. I can feel it.
“finally we’re home” I said as Endy and I walked into our small living room
“yeah” Endy breathed out and sat on the couch,
And all of a sudden the pain, that horrific goddamned pain started on my forehead again and I lost balance and fell down.
“Selene..” I heard Endy’s voice again but he sounded so far again.. I covered my ears when I heard those sound again..
My eyes opened slowly to see a blurry Endy in front of me who suddenly touched my face with his palms and then the pain stopped
“are you okay?” he asked and sat on the floor and I slowly wrapped my body into his breathing heavily..
I think Endy’s my cure, the reason the pain stopped the first time was because of his touch and now it worked again.
But what is actually wrong with me.

“okay I’m so confused on what is going on here” Endy said as we’re both in my room..
“I have no idea too” I said and he smiled
“don’t worry nothing’s going to happen while I’m around okay?” he said in a comforting tone and I smiled and placed my head on his thigh.. Suddenly lying down
“can we go over to your place?” I asked
“why, don’t tell me you want to go there to cook, clean or..
“I’m not.. I’m just missing there, I just feel weird in my own house and feeling like I have claustrophobia” I said and he looked at me strangely..
“you are awkwardly acting strange Selene”
“I know and can’t help it something’s so wrong with me” I said and he laughed and moved my hair back.. “whatever is wrong with you we’ll both figure it out” he said and I nod and sat down properly..
“so just rest a bit before we leave for my house, since your so called claustrophobia is acting up” he teased and I rolled my eyes..
“don’t make fun of me Endy” I warned and he nods with smile and was about to kiss my forehead but I held his face and brought it down so he could kiss my lips.
“happy?” he said as we both ended our kiss.
“more than” I smiled, just then I started to get sleepy and I rested my head on his shoulder and slowly I fell asleep..
*** Endy’s pov ***
Selene fell asleep while I carried her and laid her on the bed properly.. I kissed her forehead and sat down beside her, I feel really sorry for her she’s been going through a lot, I don’t understand what’s wrong with her..
Minutes ago I just couldn’t bare the sight of her wincing and bearing the pain she feels in her head, we’ve already checked with a doctor, doctor Daniel for that matter who’s the best doctor in town and he said she was perfectly fine but I don’t understand what’s still wrong with her.. She’s not sick.. But still she acts and looks sick to me and worst of all, her eyes are blue, and out of all cases the blue eyes is the most freakishly mind scaring thing I’ve ever witnessed..
I sighed and glance at her sleeping self and she was sleeping so quietly and beautifully.
I looked away and suddenly heard her voice called.
I quickly turned to her side but she was still asleep and it didn’t seem as if she was the one who called me.
“Endy.” I heard her voice again, and what the hell. She’s in front of me sleeping and I’m hearing her voice.. And I think I’m hearing her inside of me.
I held her hand and sighed, this is all just freaking crazy. I sighed again and rested my head on the wall, closing my eyes, maybe if I rest too all this hearing of her voices would go away too. I’m just too worried about her that I hear her inside my head,. Classic
Unfortunately I heard call me again this time it sounded so clear and real,
“Endy it’s ours..” I heard her say and I suddenly opened my eyes, I don’t think I’m hearing her inside of me, I think she’s actually talking to me.. Not from the outside but from inside. I glance at her but she was still asleep, I didn’t know I was still holding her hand until she tightened her grip on me and move a little bit.. She began to have bead sweats on her forehead,
“maybe she’s just having a bad dream” I thought, I decided to turn on the ceiling fan cause with a cool temperature around the room it can change the scene of the dream, if.. She’s actually having a bad dream..
I was about to stand up but her grip tightened even more on my hand..
“don’t leave Endy you have to see this” I heard her voice again, I sat down slowly staring at her sleeping body not knowing what to do, god I’m so confuse right now. What does she want me to see and how is she saying all this, where the hell is she talking to me from.
I rested my head on the wall again and Closed my eyes. . And then I saw her standing in front me.. I quickly opened my eyes, to see if I’m really seeing things well or have I eaten the wrong medicine.. Selene was still lying down but how come I saw her standing in front of me just now. I needed to get to the bottom of this so I rested my head back on the wall but my phone suddenly ringed and I grabbed my phone and checked the caller and it was my mom.. It’s been so long since I talked her, but why did she suddenly called.
“hey mom” I said into the phone
“hello dear, how are you” she asked
“I’m great” I lied, my girlfriend’s not okay, and that makes me not okay too.. So I’m actually not great
“good to hear, but where the hell are you? Your father, your brothers and I are all at home now, we just came home a few minutes ago but we couldn’t find you, your father is worried and so am I and Wendy said you’ve been gone since yesterday” my mom blurts and I sighed.
((he’s at his girlfriend’s house))
I heard Lance Voice from behind but my mom shunned him.
“don’t mind Lance honey, you were saying?” my mom continued on the phone
“no actually Lance is right am at my girlfriend’s house” I said and my mom suddenly became quiet..
“don’t play jokes with me.. But anyway come home now” she said and hang up.. Yeah she definitely did not believe I have a girlfriend..
I turned to “Selene” and her sweating increase.. I couldn’t stand up to turn the ceiling fan cause she was still gripping my hand.
I wish she’ll just wake up, I don’t feel too good seeing her this way and besides my mom’s home and I can’t leave her here alone.
Immediately I wished that her eyes fluttered open, she breathed in and out slowly before sitting down.. She glance at me and sighed removing her hands from mine and placing it on her forehead..
“what’s wrong?” I asked but she just shook her head negatively which means, nothing’s-wrong but why do I feel there is.
“do you want me to get you water?” I asked standing up but she held my arm, stopping me from walking any further.
“endy it’s okay, I’m okay, everything’s fine” she said and I nod.
“anyway my parents are home and I need to get home and I can’t leave you here, do you want to come with me”
“yeah sure” she said not looking at me but at her fingers..
“Selene.. Look at me” I tell her and she slowly looked at me..
“if anything, anything’s wrong just tell me okay, don’t keep it to yourself” I said and tuck her hair behind her ear..
She smiled, but it wasn’t more of a Selene smile.. I know .
“Endy if anything at all is bothering I promise to let you know okay?” she said and I smiled in return..
We both stayed like that for some minutes before she stood up to take a shower, and I waited for her downstairs, she got ready and the both of us went out and got into my car..
During the car drive to my house, Selene just kept quiet without saying a single word and she just kept sighing.. And it kept bothering me..
Finally we were at my house and at the front porch, I could already hear the voices of my family from inside and it gave my heart a warm feeling.. I held Selene’s hand and she smiled at me and I pushed the doorbell with my index finger, the door opened and Lance was the one who opened it..
“finally you’re home..” Lance said
He turned to Selene and smiled “oh Selene nice to meet you again” he said it and Selene gave him a heart warming smile..
Selene, Lance and I all walked in together and everyone turned.. To us
“oh Endymion” my mom squeak and ran up to me to give me a hug … “hey mom” I said and hugged her back and slowly we both pulled away from the hug..
She slowly turned and saw Selene beside me.. “Who’s th–
“that’s his girlfriend” Lance suddenly said and I gave him a glance..
“h-hey there” my mom said to Selene nervously, everyone think I’ll grow old without having a partner in life, cause I know everyone knows me as, “Endy the boy who doesn’t have anything to do with girls” .. I know she’s happy about me having a girlfriend, and besides an Angel,
“hi mrs.. Rita” Selene said with a smile and I suddenly looked her at her, how did she know my mom’s name ..
“hi there, wow you’re so beautiful” my mom said and Selene blushed and smiled shyly
“thank you, Endy’s told me a lot about you” Selene blurted out and my eyebrows arched, what the hell Selene is such a good liar, I haven’t even tell her anything about my mom and here she is already capturing my mom’s house with her too good lies and amazing smile..
“It’s Selene” Selene and my mom smiled holding her hands..
“such a beautiful name” my mom said and Selene thanked her..
“I hope you take care of my Endy okay, he’s been suffering from loneliness enough” my mom said and I rolled my eyes while Selene, looked at me, smiled, and nodded at my mom..
“where’s dad?” I asked
“oh he went out but he’ll be back pretty soon” mom replied and I nodded and entangled Selene’s arm and my arm together..
“so we’re going to my room, Selene needs to rest” I said and started to walk away
“what I don’t need to re–
“you do” I interrupted her and she tried to remove her hand from mine but my elbow was closed so tightly..
“Endy!!.. I haven’t even said hi to everyone yet” she whispered as I dragged her upstairs.
“you don’t have to” I tell and she huffed and gave up, and we both walked in my room.
She was suddenly quiet as it was just the two of us in my room, I just wanted us to be together alone, not together alone and quiet like this..
“so.. I gotta ask, how the hell did you know my mom’s name I never mentioned her to you” I asked breaking the awkward silence..
“oh.. You told me” she replied
“no I didn’t” I defended and she wore a confused look “yes you did when she said hi to me you told me her name’s Rita” she said calmly.. But I shook my head negativelike
I remembered not telling her anything.. About my mom
“that’s strange, I know I heard your voice saying your mom’s Rita” she said and I shrugged
“anyway it’s good we’re alone actually, you noticed I wasn’t my self a while ago but your happy family distracted that sour mood I was in” Selene said and I looked at her..
“yeah I was wondering why you became suddenly quiet when you woke up” I said and she shrugged and laid on my bed bringing out a heavy sigh..
“Endy am pregnant.” she said.
