BEAUTY CALLS Episode 23 – 24 by RUTHIE LEE



“Alyssa meet Selene, Endy’s girl” mrs Rita said and Alyssa looked at me.
“Oh no need for the introduction mom, I’ve met her before” Alyssa said staring at me as I drank my water looking at her back..
“good, isn’t she a beaut, she’s just perfect, and right for Endy” Mrs Rita said smiling at me..
“yes.. She is just perfect” Alyssa said with her teeth clenched together and her hand gripping tightly on her glass of water.. I haven’t dealt with this type of girls before but I know the littlest things get them easily..
“so Endy.. How did you and Selene meet?” Alyssa asked and Endy looked at her.. Oh she doesn’t know I used to be the house keeper and then realise Endy and I have so many things in common..
“table manners please, I don’t talk while I eat” Endy said and Alyssa gave an angry fake smile ..
“oh sorry I have no idea” she said and drank her water,
I smiled at Endy’s reply and her reaction..
«what are you smiling at» I heard Endy’s voice in my head and suddenly turned to him.. He wasn’t saying anything outside but I’m sure he said something..
“did you just say something” I whispered to him..
“did you hear that?” he asked surprisingly and I nod..
“it’s like we can mind communicating” he said and I rolled my eyes.. “that can’t be hundred percent possible” I said and he sighed.. And said in a low tone
“okay then let’s try it, you go first” he said and I nod and sat down properly, everyone was busy talking but I just concentrated on what I should say with Endy and in my head, In my mind I said..
«hey» he suddenly turned to me and smiled
“I heard you loud and clear you said hey” he told me softly and I gasped, it worked, I can’t believe this, is this actually part of the bond the lady in my dream was talking about..
“okay my turn” he whispered and I waited and listened to whatever he had to say,
«I think you’re pretty when you eat, and I love you» I hear his voice in me and my heart fluttered
I turned to him and smiled, “oh my god that was so sweet” I said and he shrugged..
“told you it works” he said and I hit his shoulder playfully

“I thought you said you don’t talk while you eat” Alyssa suddenly interrupts our sudden playdate and me Endy both turned to her and so did everyone.. And she didn’t even hide the fact that she’s angry ..
“I don’t, I was just whispering some important things to Selene” Endy said calmly
“yeah right?” Alyssa replied and rolled her eyes..
«let’s eat quickly and get out of here I seriously hate her presence» Endy said to me through his mind and I nod and continued eating,
After eating though, Endy and I wanted to leave but Mrs Rita said we must all eat dessert together, dessert was set on the table, different kinds of junk food and my mouth was already watering, and I was suddenly glad Mrs Rita didn’t let you us go..
“Selene, dear why don’t you help me get the last bowl of ice-cream in the fridge from the kitchen” Mrs Rita said
“sure” I said and stood up..
“and I’ll come help” Alyssa said, smiled at me and Mrs Rita before standing up and walking straight to the kitchen with me,..
We got to the quiet kitchen and I opened the fridge and brought out the ice-cream and closed it back and was about to walk away when Alyssa suddenly stood in front of me.
“what?” I asked nicely
“I should help you with that” she said referring to the bowl of ice-cream
“no worries, I got this” I said and she forcefully grabbed it from me.. Making me flinch
“that’s how I’ll be snatching Endy from you” she said clearly, lowly and closely to my face..
I was damn right, she is in love with Endy,
she’s obsessed with the love she has for Endy, she doesn’t like Lance at all, either she’s dating him because of the family’s richness or she’s dating him because she’s trying to get close to Endy.. My Endymoin.
And she’s so shameless, she’s not even hiding the fact that she loves Endy, isn’t she afraid I might spill the beans to Lance..

I smiled at her sudden remark of snatching Endy from me and she moved back a little
“why are you Smiling?, this is nothing you can smile about cause I stay true to my words, I know you’re pretty and all but sometimes in life if you don’t get what you want you have to fight for it and, you know what I’ll be fighting for” she said and I sighed and shook my head negatively..
“Alyssa, you might look older than me, I don’t know your age but you’re not too older than me but you’re kind of older than me with a year or two, by your face and body, but the way you talk, shows that you’re still growing in here” I said pointing to her head and referring to her brain..
“don’t you dare talk to me that way” she warned but I just moved closer to her, and looked her in the eyes.. “or what?” I yanked..
Even though she was wearing a five inches heel, I was still a little bit taller then her,
“you don’t know what I’m capable of do you” she said but I just rolled my eyes..
“pick someone Your Own size Alice or Alyssa what ever your name is.. And I’ll have that” I said and took the ice-cream back from her forcefully.. I gave her a “get-lost” smile and walked out of the kitchen..
I went back to the dining room with the ice-cream and everyone started eating, Alyssa came back too and gave me a loon before going back to lances side and sitting beside him.
I sat down beside my sweet and lovely Endy, who smiled at me as I came, I looked at my front ready to eat dessert with others but I didn’t know where to start from.. There were just so many.. I just couldn’t decide, they were biscuits, fruit tarts, cookies, cakes, pudding, custard creams, sweet soup and bourbons.. I kept staring at the sweet savoury coursed in front of me and I was about to take an apricot from the fruit tarts when Endy suddenly shoved an apricot in my mouth..
“you just couldn’t stop staring at it and you still couldn’t touch it so I had to give you one myself” emduysaid and I giggled shyly..
“but still I wanted to take it myself…. So don’t act like a hero just because you fed me an apricot” I said and he laughed..
“I didn’t act like a hero, I just did that cause I wanted to” he said defensively
“yeah right” I said sarcastically, bringing out the apricot’s seed from my mouth
“you are just so… Ugh.. I don’t even know what to say” he groaned and slowly breathed in and out and took another apricot
“want this one?” he asked bringing it closer to my mouth, I opened my mouth getting ready for apricot to get in but he quickly turned his hand and shoved it into his mouth.
“now that’s what a hero would do, what? Are you mad?” he asked but I just rolled my eyes..
“you big baby” I cuss angrily and he smiled and placed his hand around my shoulder..
“come-in, don’t be mad, I know you’re a little mad at me” he said still smiling
Of course I am
“no I’m not” I said and he gave me a “really?” look.. He grabbed a fork and stabbed a little part of the cake in front of us and brought it close to my mouth, but I didn’t open up cause I felt like he’ll still trick me
“seriously, open up I’m not gonna do that again.” he said and I looked at him and he smiled and nod, his hand was still around my shoulder and slowly I opened my mouth and the cake almost got in my mouth but he suddenly turned his hand again to his mouth and was about to eat the cake..
“don’t you dare!” I warned him and he stopped himself from eating it and brought it back to my mouth and I ate it while he smiled..
“see.. Isn’t that much better” he said like he didn’t trick me, I just shook my head and gave him a playful glare and removing his hand from my shoulder..
“hey I’m sorry okay?” he said but I just pretended to be angry and started to eat the cake like I wasn’t hearing what he’s saying..
“hey” he said and kisses my cheek and I stopped and looked at him
“I’m sorry” he mouthed to me..
I turned back to the cake and continued eating.. “Selene.. Are you giving me the silent treatment?;” he asked but still he got no reply from me.. He forcefully grabbed my face closer to his and started to give me little pecks on my lips continuously,
“I’m going to kiss you until you accept my apology” he whispered in my ear and continued to kiss me but I just laughed and stopped him.. By pushing his head away
“it’s okay.. I forgive you” I primped and he smiled
“now that’s more like it” he said and let’s go of me.
“awwn.. You guys remind me of my young age” Mrs Rita suddenly said and Endy and I suddenly looked up to see everyone eyes were on us around the table..
“I’m done” Louis said lowly and stood up
“but you haven’t even had ice-cream yet” Mrs Rita said
“it’s okay mom, I’m full and I’m gonna head upstairs now thanks for the food” louis said nicely to his mom
“okay sweetie,” Mrs Ri.mta replied and Louis glance at Endy and I before heading upstairs,
I turned back to my course, but my eyes met with Alyssa’s and the way she was looking at me wasn’t friendly at all.. But I don’t care..
She doesn’t know who she’s dealing with.


The hospital bed wasn’t too comfortable as I waited patiently for Endy to go call the doctor or nurse to remove the syringe In my hand so I can go and see Wendy cause I’m not actually feeling well thinking about her..
Endy came back with a young nurse who walked up to me and carefully take off the syringe and plaster in my hand.. And I jumped up to my feet..
“careful, we don’t know how it’s possible that you’re okay with no part of injury in your body but they might be some side effect later on so please be careful with the way you move” the nurse said and I nearly rolled my eyes and pushed her out of the way but I just acted natural and nodded ..
She walked away and I quickly turned to Endy, who has this pitiful eyes at me, “where’s Wendy?” I asked
“which ward is she in, take me there” I said and he nodded slowly and he held my hand walked me there..

We got to the room wendy was and it was a VIP room.. I slowly opened the door and Endy and I walked in with Endy in front of me, Wendy was laying still on the bed, her face was pale and filled with dried tears… It was like she was holding her breath, she suddenly turned when she heard Endy’s thick boot hit the floor..
She slowly got up and as Endy approached her she hugged him and tears started streaming down her eyes..
“it’s okay..” Endy said and rubbed her back slowly and carefully..
“no. .. No it’s not okay” she sobbed on Endy’s shoulder and her voice came out low and horsey..
I was in tears too cause I felt like I was the one who caused this accident when I’m actually not the one, but I feel guilty.. I was grieving badly inside, I mean why did she get loose her baby, why did she get injuries and why didn’t I.. I don’t want to loose my baby but it’s just so, heartbreaking unfair and deceitful..
She and Endy disengaged their hug and I moved closet to her, to find a big plaster almost around her neck and I suddenly broke down.. And hugged her.
“I’m so glad you’re okay” she whispered-cried in my ear.. I wanted to reply but I couldn’t tears just let crawling out of my eyes..
We disengage the hug and she tried to clean her tears but her hand was connected to a drip, she decided to use her second hand but I beat her to it.

“I’m sorry” I said lowly sniffing
“you should not be sorry Selene, it’s not your fault, if I had paid more attention to the road none of this would have Happen..” Wendy cried and I cried too..
“but none of this,..
She continued referring to the plasters, bandages and drip connected to her body .. “none of this hurts more than what I’m feeling inside, I lost my baby Selene, my baby’s gone” she said and cried even loudly making me hug her again. All this is just too much to take in, I’m not in her shoes but it feels like I do cause seeing her cry about her lost child is making me feel broken.. She was so happy about the baby even though Oscar was against the pregnancy, and just to talk about when Oscar’s already accepted the baby.. Life is truly unfair,..
I let go of her and cleaned her tears.. “I don’t know how you’re perfectly okay Selene, but I’m grateful.. I’m happy you didn’t get hurt” she said and batted her eyes making tears gush out like it was raining in her eyes.. I sniffed loudly and she gave a small smile at me..
“and my baby was turning one month today” she breathed looking at the floor..
“I’m sorry” I said sympathetically but my voice comes out in a whisper..
“stop saying you’re sorry Selene.. It’s not your fault” she sniffed, I just can’t help with sorry part, I don’t know what to say or do, I wish I could something but I can’t,..
The door suddenly opened and Oscar walked in following the entire family of the blossom,
they all ran towards Wendy who looked kind of relaxed seeing her family, I stood up from the bed and move toward Endy who seems lost in his sister words she said to me minutes ago.. He moved me closer to his body immediately he felt my touch and I snugged into him looking for comfort..
“mom….” Wendy cried and Mrs Rita hugged her with tears in her eyes.. “mom”.. Wendy cried softly on her mom’s shoulder and everyone watched as mother and daughter cried in each others arm,
“it’s okay.. Hon.. It’s gonna be okay” Mrs Rita said disengaging the hug and placing her palms on Wendy face. “no mom it’s not okay, my baby’s gone” Wendy cried and Oscar flinched
“baby? What baby?, hon what are you taking about?” Mrs Rita asked curiously. “I was pregnant for Oscar, and it hasn’t been too long when I found out and now the baby’s gone” Wendy explained again and I buried my face in Endy’s chest, I hate it when people cry and I hate it when I cry.. I heard Mrs Rita little sniffing and I know she was crying..
“are you okay?” I heard two similar voices behind me and I turned to find, Louis, Lance and Linc in front of me
“I heard you were involved in the hospital too, are you okay?” Louis asked, again.
I nod slowly.. “it’s a miracle, you’re okay, not a single scratch in your body,” Linc said sympathetically and gave me a hug, the kinds that says, “i-care-about-you” .. I took two more hugs from Louis and Lance before turning to Endy
“can we go outside,” I said and he understands what I’m feeling immediately and he nods and we both walked out … I just can’t deal with this right now.. I just feel so out of this world, when it’s not my baby but Wendy’s, looks like I’ve just learned to like her a lot..
Endy and I both sat on a comfy bench at the entrance of the hospital and my head was laid on his shoulder.. A nurse walked up to us with a bewildered look she said
“Miss, you’re a patient here you’re supposed to be inside its not safe for you out here”
“it’s not a safe for you out here too” I muttered under my breath.
“excuse me?” the nurse said, may or may not have heard me..
“yeah, she’s sorry for being outside but she just feel like she could use a little fresh air” Endy said for me and the nurse gave him a look before nodding and walking away.. “thanks” I said to Endy softly..
“for what?” he asked
“I don’t know… Everything actually, how is it that you’re the first one to notice we’re in the hospital or had an accident” I asked,
“after you and Wendy left to get the groceries, I decided to go take a nap until you came back, but trying to fall asleep became hard, I kept tossing and turning and falling asleep wasn’t that hard for me but I just didn’t know what was wrong with me that, and strangely… Not that it was too strange though, when I close my eyes I suddenly see you and I just thought that maybe I missed you too much that you started to appear on my mental screen.. But I didn’t think so cause I was starting to hear your voice, I could actually hear the conversation you and Wendy were having about a necklace.. And then it happened I saw the whole scene of the accident like I was there I didn’t see what happened to Wendy but I saw what happened to you and somehow it affected me.. I knew it was real and sprung up from my bed and let my body take me to you and by then you were already at the hospital and I was surprised nothing happened and I was glad” he said and kissed my forehead.. Tears pricked my eyes and finally it starts falling..
“it’s okay don’t cry, everything is okay, and if you’re worried about Wendy she’ll be fine, I just know it” he said and gave me a hug..
We both heard an all too familiar voice beside us and turn to our sides to see Mrs Ginger standing beside the bench we were seated.
“grandma! When did you get here?” endy asked standing up and I suddenly felt cold.. I need his warmth.
“not too long ago” she replied and I pulled Endy down so he could sit down and I rested my head on his shoulder again..
“Selene..” Mrs Ginger said with a smile.. “yes ma’am” I replied politely
“are you okay?” she asked and I nods..
“of course you will be,” she said with a sigh, of course I will be what is that supposed to mean.
“won’t you go on and see Wendy? ” Endy asked but Mrs Ginger shook her head negatively
“I’ll go but when everyone’s gone, I know she lost her baby and all but after today she’ll be fine, her baby was going to die anyway” Mrs Ginger said and I flinch.. Endy too was shocked by what she meant by that and I looked at her deeply trying to decipher to what she just said.
“what the hell, wait.. How did you know she was pregnant and why did you say her baby was going to die anyways” Endy asked his grandma and I just stared at her in anticipation waiting for her to say something and finally she did.
“look Endy.. You might just See Me as this boring old grandma who knows nothing about life and also waiting for her death” Mrs Ginger said and Endy brows arched
“I never see you the way” Endy defend himself
“I’m just saying, you might see me that way, but I know what others don’t..” she said
“and what is that?” Endy asked
“hmm… Let’s just say, I see things.. Have your mom ever told you I had a twin sister?” Mrs Ginger asked,
“uhm yeah, it was dad who told us actually, what was her name again.. Wasn’t it Rebeca” Endy asked unsure of the name
“it was Regina”. Mrs Ginger corrected..

“you and Selene are not human, you might look human but you’re not” Mrs Ginger said and my heart skipped a beat..
Oh my God, she knows about us, wait is she one of us!!?
Endy didn’t know what to say he was just as befuddled as I am.. Who is Mrs Ginger anyway.
“okay grams, you’re freaking me out, what are you, who are you?” he asked
“don’t think I’m one of you, I’m a complete human but also kind of different, my twin sister Regina was just like you Selene, a rare beauty, never gets sick or Hurt and also men obsessed. We were fraternal twins so we both looked nothing alike, she was looking like an angel while I was just a normal not so beautiful average girl, in my mind and everyone’s mind I was the cursed one cause I wasn’t born with a beauty like Regina’s.. I was jealous too cause it gets tough when we got to high school cause everyone loved her, I hated my self for not being beautiful and always take excuses to stay at home doing nothing, and then one day, I was reading when suddenly like a spark or what I saw Regina, I thought I was just seeing glimpse of her beautiful face cause I was jealous but then I saw the full image of her being hit by a bus.. And the next day she got hit by a bus, but she was fine nothing happened to her, after that day I know I could see things, and anything I saw came true and I knew I was gifted too but it wasn’t actually a good thing, but the Part I didn’t see coming was when Regina died, she committed suicide by drowning her self in water, cause she knew if she tries to do anything painful or harmful to her body, by stabbing her self or jumping off from high buildings she won’t die.. She left a sad note at home saying, she is tired of life that it is so unfair and she hated her beauty, and that because of her five innocent boys died, and she deserves to live no more ….”
When Mrs Ginger said the Part about her killing five innocent, boys I remembered my past and held on to Endy tightly..

“but she’s gone now so there’s nothing really nice to say about her she was never a nice person, I started seeing things as I grew up but I just saw them and let them be.. Not until when I saw you selene applying for the housekeeping job, two days before you applied for it and then later I saw that you and Endy will be together and inseparable.. And then I saw Diana, your child” Mrs Ginger said and my eyebrows arched.
“wait, you saw our baby and it’s a girl and her name’s Diana” Endy asked and his grandma nods
“okay this is crazily awkward, how did you know her name’s Diana what if we don’t want the bar Diana” Endy asked being sensitive
“trust me you will” Mrs ginger said but endy just shrugged.

“then about wendy, what did you mean by her baby was supposed to die anyways” I asked but my voice comes out horsey, I’ve been crying too much..
“what I saw about wendy wasn’t something you think about or want to know, she was supposed to carry her baby and complete the nine months Circle of a complete pregnant woman, but while giving birth the baby died and so did she.. And I know that baby wasn’t going to hang around when I first saw she was pregnant because I couldn’t tell what the gender was so it’s a good thing the baby died now cause she Also saved her self, and it was you Selene you made the accident happen, even though Wendy was the one who wasn’t paying attention on the road you still caused the accident she was supposed to go and come back safely but you followed her and that accident happened, so you actually saved her in future, don’t feel bad.. Just feel happy, you saved a life cause she’ll most likely to get pregnant again okay” Mrs Ginger explained but I just blinked rapidly not believing my ears .
I saved a life?
