WHAT HAPPENED TO REBECCA Episode 11 by RUTHIE LEE
It was nighttime, Taylor, Helen and Steven were fast asleep,
Vera and Rebecca were wide awake moving about the house.
Well cause suddenly Vera craved for doughnut and started to make them in the middle of the night, while Rebecca just walked around the house, doing ‘who knows what?.
Vera sat down on the couch with her phone and tray of doughnut in her hand. She glanced at Rebecca who had walked from the kitchen to the fireplace and then Vera called.
“Okay what are you doing”.
Rebecca rolled her eyes. “It’s none of your business”.
“Oh.. Owkay…Do you want one?” Vera asked referring to the doughs.
“No thank you!” Rebecca replied sharply making Vera almost mad but she controlled herself.
“Okay, I don’t get why you’re so mad at me! But fine whatever I did I’m Sorry” Vera sighed.
“You should be! But apology not accepted” Rebecca snarled.
“Come on Becca!” Vera yelled.
“Seriously what is wrong with you?”.
“What?” Rebecca suddenly paused.
“Yeah what is wrong with you?” Vera repeated cause Rebecca looked suddenly lost
“Y.. You’re saying that too?” Rebecca asked shivering and looking around.
“Yeah… why? Cause you’ve been acting like a bitch” Vera said.
“Honestly Vera… You are right, but I don’t know what’s wrong with me! It’s happened again!” Rebecca said her voice shaking.
Vera suddenly got worried and stood up. “what’s happening again”.
“I don’t know it’s like I’m having memory gaps or something, this morning I remembered being with Zane, then Mark… And now you! I don’t remember what happened to the rest of the day!” Rebecca explained steadily…
“You don’t remember how you wanted me to take my ass back to college?” Vera asked..
“What?. I said that?” Rebecca asked.
“Yeah… seriously Rebecca are you sure you’re okay?” Vera asked Stepping closer.
“Like I said I’m not, I’m freaking out? Everyone’s been asking me the same damn thing at school too” Rebecca yelled.
“Okay… Okay… it’s okay, but first you need to breathe in and calm down”. Vera said but her sister failed to listen cause she was seriously hyperventilating.
Vera hugged her sister and her hand moved up and down her back.
“It’s okay…” Vera suddenly flinched when the thought got into her head. And she let’s go of Rebecca.
“Becca!” she called slowly.
“Yeah” Rebecca replied still looking like she’s about to cry, her eyes coming alive.
“Wait… I know this sounds crazy but what if…
“What if what?” Rebecca asked sniffing, holding my back the tears.
“You’re possessed!” Vera said.
“What…? That’s not possible. But I’m still me, I’m talking to you right now! It’s me Rebecca!” Rebecca said sniffing too much.
“I know.. But you said you’ve had memory gaps, and believe me when I say I hate the person you’ve become since today, you were bitchy and I know that’s not you Rebecca. You may be rude but you’re the nicest person I’ve ever met in my life.” vera stated and immediately Rebecca’s lively eyes went dull.
“And FYI nothing is wrong with me… Am perfectly fine!” Rebecca suddenly said blinking away her tears.
“Oh no… she’s gone isn’t she!” Vera muttered.
“What?” Rebecca asked.
“Rebecca she’s gone isn’t she?” Vera asked her voice angry and shaky.
“Why are you suddenly babbling nonsense I am Rebecca”.
“No you’re not! You’re not my sister… Who the hell are you?” Vera asked angrily.
“Oh so you figured?” Rebecca smirked. “Good for you smart ass”.
“What the hell do you want?” Vera asked walking closer to Rebecca and grabbing her wrist squeezing it till it turned white.
“You know you’re not actually hurting me but Rebecca!” Rebecca smirked.
“Well since you’re in control of her body I know you still feel the pain, don’t try to be smarter than me!” Vera’s voice sounded scary.
“I’m Delilah by the way…” Rebecca smiled making Vera wondered why the name sounded so familiar.
“And Vera don’t underestimate me. I might be a fifteen year old girl who lives inside you helpless sister body, but trust me… i am doing this for revenge and you don’t want to be in my list,” Rebecca voice sounded different but Vera didn’t make an effort to move.
“I’m not scared of you Delilah, you don’t scare me! And believe me when I say you’ll be getting out of that body whether you ghostlyness like it or not!” Vera’s voice sounded more scarier as she let’s go of Rebecca.
Rebecca starts to walk to her room but paused and turned to Vera.
“Congratulations Vera, you just got in my list, you’re the third, don’t worry you’ll still get a week to live” Rebecca sounded devilishly before walking to her room.
Vera stood still watching Rebecca’s room door, she didn’t know what to think, or what to do but yet she had to do something. She wasn’t scared! And she believed she could get rid of whatever is inside of her sister.
Vera sat down suddenly loosing her appetite to eat her doughnuts., she placed it all In the fridge and went up to her room to take a good night sleep.
The next morning the Adam’s breakfast was as quiet as ever, Vera and Rebecca exchanging looks and immediately after breakfast, Rebecca and Helen head to school.
Vera stood outside of the house watching her two sisters walk down the street, she was confused and she needed someone to talk to about Rebecca’s situation and the last person she felt like she could talk to about Rebecca is to her parents, they would think she’s saying bad things about her sister just because they fight all the time. And no she didn’t want that.
Vera stood In front of her parent’s house waiting for somebody, and after minutes of water she let out a sigh of relief when she saw his long hair, and headphone over his head.
As he walked by He saw Vera from the corner of his eyes and he paused when she smiled at him.
“Mike!” Vera called.
“It’s actually Mark” Mark corrected taking off his headphone.
“okay sorry… And I know I must be making you late by talking about this right now but I have to”. Vera pleaded.
“it’s okay I don’t mind being late… What do you want to talk about?” Mark asked getting curious.
“So you and my sister are pretty close right?” Vera asked.
“well I won’t say close..
“But still you are?” Vera yelled a bit.
“yeah a little” Mark shrugged, his cool voice making Vera feel guilty for yelling.
“okay have you noticed anything about her lately?” Vera asked. Making Mark breathe out in relief.
“Yeah” he replied without hesitation. “She’s been acting pretty weird, even her dressing yesterday was off.”
“Wait till you see today’s dressing!” Vera muttered. “Anyways, tell me the things you noticed about her!”.
“Uhm… on a scale of one to ten her weirdness is on another level, and every moment she’s either clinging on me, or flirting and at the next moment, she’s this confused girl who doesn’t know anything in the world, and Rebecca isn’t the type to flirt or cling, I know how much she hates me, but now she even wanted to kiss me!” Mark explained.
“And did you let her?” Vera asked.
“Good!” Vera sighed, making Mark disappointed, he didn’t want to hear that but he was more schocked when he wished it was the only thing she had said. Cause he suddenly heard what he had been avoiding to hear, what he was failing to admit.
“Rebecca’s possessed Mark!” Vera blurted.
“Why aren’t you saying anything?” Vera asked after a moment of silence.
“Cause I kind of figured but I didn’t want to admit it” Mark said his head down.
“Well good thing you know cause we have to do something” Vera said.
“We?” Mark almost choked on his words.
“yeah… Don’t you care about her?” Vera asked.
“I do? But… I…
“Mark..” vera rested her hand on his shoulder, “I know your sister died because of a possession too… And I undertand if you don’t want to help, but Rebecca’s all I got, I mean I have two sisters and I would die if I would have one of them be gone, please mark”.
“She told you about my sister?” Mark asked.
“Yeah, she did, before this whole things started, she was really scared when she told me, but I told her nothing is going to happen but look at where we are now it did happen.!” Vera sighed tiredly.
“I didn’t get to save my sister… But maybe I’ll get to save Rebecca” Mark said easing Vera’s heart.
Vera smiled. “Thank you so much!”.
“I know I’m delaying you from school, I’m sorry but this is what you have to do here, she knows I know she’s possessed and that ghostess is pretty stubborn, she even threatened me can you believe that?” Vera rolled her eyes and continued anyways “But she doesn’t know you know she’s possessed here, but please help me keep an eyes on her and pretend you don’t know she’s possessed.”
“What that’s not possible cause I’ve been asking her what’s wrong with her and she just keeps saying she’s fine, so she might have gotten the hint that I’m suspicious of her behaviour”. Mark said.
“today’s a new day Mark, if she can be another person in a day, so can you! Just go with whatever character she exhibit today, I want her to think I’m the only one who knows about this…” Vera dropped her hand from his shoulder
Mark rubbed his neck “And what if she tries to kiss me again!”
“kiss her back!” Vera said getting the expression she wanted, his cheeks turned red immediately and she rolled her eyes.
“As If!.. Don’t kiss her…Rebecca won’t be happy you did that… and sorry for wasting your time but could you meet me after school again?” Vera asked.
“uh I have detention!” Mark replied.
“Great” Vera rolled eyes.
“Uhm okay can I have your phone number?” Vera asked. And without hesitation make gave it to her and hurried to school.
Vera sighed as she closed the door behind her and walked straight to the kitchen to get a glass of water, there she met her mother.
“I saw you talking to someone outside… Who is it?” Taylor smiled suspiciously giving Vera the googly eyes.
“Oh God mom, if that is what you’re thinking please don’t! And I have a boyfriend, and God I’m older than him!” Vera rolled her eyes.
“Okay who is he then?” Taylor folded her hands.
“i don’t know, Rebecca’s boyfriend or something!” Vera said gulping down her water.
“What Rebecca has a boyfriend?” Taylor gasped.
“Yeah… What is it weird?” Vera smiled.
“Of course my baby’s not old enough for a boyfriend.” Taylor jaw was still dropped open.
“Oh mom could you please crack out of your eggshell and let Rebecca grow up you’re the reason she’s like this!” Vera stated…
Taylor moved her hair back. “Don’t spoil my daughter Vera!”.
“If you call her your daughter and I’m being warned not to spoil her, so that means I’m not your child.!??” Vera asked.
“I’m still figuring out where you came from!” Taylor said playfully scratching her head in a matter to show that she’s thinking.
“So… That means you’ll figure out where you come from too cause we look damn alike.” vera said making her mother laugh.
“So you know you’re pretty?”.
“Don’t flatter yourself mom. I am pretty but In my own way.” vera smiled.
Taylor walked up to the stove “And suddenly she thinks she’s the prettiest, you’re not the prettiest in this house.”
“Of course I am… If am not then who is… Helen?. Rebecca?..” vera primped.
“Rebecca! Like I expected” Vera said as she walked up to her mother.
“Mom…” She called.
“Amongst the three of us, who’s your favourite?” Vera asked.
Taylor gasped. “what?”
“How can you ask me to pick my favourite child.”
“Because you do have a favourite child. Not me not Helen but Rebecca!” Vera stated dropping her glass.
“What? Vera sometimes you think like a child I love all of you equally.” Taylor said rolling her eyes she couldn’t believe Vera was talking about this.
“Mom just admit it, it’s just me and you, I won’t tell Helen don’t worry” Vera smiled.
“you’re crazy Vera!”.
“Come on Mom, we know Rebecca gets the favouritism, you always talk about her, when we eat, you make her sit beside you, when she’s rude and insults you, you say she’s growing up, she asks for anything you give it to her, seriously mom! What do you call that?” Vera asked and immediately Taylor eyes started to get wet.
“You’re going to ask me about that? Vera.! You were there, you know what she went through as a child… You know how she almost died!” Taylor said pushing back the tears that threatened to fall.
“Hey mom! I didn’t bring up this conversation for you to cry, I’m sorry okay! She almost died but I saved her! Great I was involved in the past too,” Vera rolled her eyes.
“I’m just giving her everything she lacked then. Vera why do you have to be so judge~ful” Taylor yelled.
“I’m not judge-ful I’m just saying–
“Well don’t say anything!” Taylor yelled ending the conversation.
“Okay… sorry, I guess you don’t want to talk about how my kidney was the only match for her and…
Vera stopped talking when her mother walked out of the kitchen.
She sighed and walked out too heading to her room, she understood what her mother was talking about, but even though Rebecca went through ‘all that’ everyone deserves that kind of attention.
And she knows she’s pertaining in that favoritism too cause Rebecca’s the one she loves the most, and that’s why she must get her sister back.
Rebecca smiled happily when she saw Mark walk into the class…
“Mark’s here” she announced happily waving to him.
“we know we can all see that!” Zane said rolling his eyes.
“And may I ask. Becca! When did you start having a crush on mark?” Felicia asked.
“Since the day he threatened to destroy me!” Rebecca smiled staring at me.
“What?” shayne and Felicia said in unison.
“What? Destroy you?” shayne asked, and they all shared an awkward look.
“Yeah destroy me with his beauty” Rebecca smiled and they all breathed out a sigh of relief knowing she wasn’t crazy.
“Okay… Just pray Mark feels the way about you” Felicia said.
“Feel the same way about who?” Mark suddenly chipped in, sitting down.
“Feel the same way about Becca!” shayne helped.
Mark glanced at Rebecca’s pale face and she gave him a dimpled smile before he turned back to his friends.
He smirked. “I do feel the same way!”
“No way, okay this is great! Forget the Zanet couple that is old news. I bring our finest couple… Mabecca..!” shayne said playfully.
“Mabecca..? Okay Zanet won, Mabecca is lame!” Felicia added.
“Oh really, you think it’s easy to come up with great couple names like I do?” shayne boasted.
“Maybe you should go get a girlfriend and see you’re wasting your time. I think ‘Macca’ is great!” Felicia smiled.
“Macca…? Seriously where are you from jupiter? That is the lamest couple name ever, leave the couples naming to me please, you’re the worst! And go get a boyfriend and maybe by then you’ll be able to come up with a less lamer name” shayne said making Felicia punch him on his shoulder angrily.
“Okay I see you guys are jobless!”. Zane said standing up.
“And just because I said I feel the same way doesn’t mean we’ll date!” Mark stated.
“What why?” Rebecca asked with a frown.
Mark glanced at her, wishing he could just grab her and take out the bitch inside of her..
“Because I’m not ready to be in a relationship” Mark’s voice was low but Rebecca heard it clearly…
“Ready whenever you are” she smiled kissing his cheeks.
Taking Mark off guard.
“Okay… Please next time… Don’t do that!” Mark warned, really disappointed it wasn’t the real Rebecca talking.
“c’mon Mark, don’t be a lame guy, grab her and kiss her on the lips too” shayne snickered making Felicia laugh and making Zane walk away.
Rebecca chuckled loving shayne enthusiasm.
“Why don’t you try it with her.!” Mark chided angrily placing his headphone over his head.
“You’ll never change!” shayne shook his head..
Mark glanced at Rebecca “nobody does!”.
First period was over, and so was second period, Mark, Rebecca and Felicia took third and fourth period together and after that the bell for lunch break was rung and everyone found their bodies in the cafeteria.
Rebecca sat beside Mark, her arm linked around his, she was grinning from ear to and Felicia couldn’t help but glance at them shaking her head.
Zane and shayne sat together. While Felicia remained beside Rebecca they all ate quietly until Rebecca started.
“So Mark… I got us out of detention!” .
“Wow you did?… Great” Mark replied sarcastically.
“I thought you’d be happy you know!” Rebecca pouted.
“I am… How did you do it?” Mark asked uninterested.
“It’s a secret!” Rebecca smiled.
“Hope you didn’t kill anyone to do that” Mark breathed lowly.
“huh?” Rebecca asked cause she didn’t hear him.
“Nothing” Mark replied and she smiled and continued eating.
“What’s wrong you look gloomy!” shayne said to Zane.
“My heart feels gloomy” Zane sighed.
“what did Janet turn you down again?” Shayne laughed.
“She didn’t just turn me down, she insulted my every look” Zane said making Felicia and Shayne laugh.
“Then again! Why do you still keep trying!” Mark’s cool chipped in.
“Cause you know, sometimes we feel we’re close to something and we can’t give up and I know I’m close and I can’t give up on her.!” Zane sighed, earning a slap at the back of his head then he heard the familiar scolding voice behind him.
“Zane when will you grow up?” Thelma said dropping her tray of food on the table and sitting down beside Zane.
“Great it’s you, why didn’t you sit down with your friends?” Zane asked angrily.
“Cause they’re busy and I’m not, and I feel like having a conversation and you guys are perfect.” Thelma said making Zane glance at her friends to see them scribbling some things on paper and eating at the same time.
“Well you’re not welcome here!” Zane scowled.
“Oh she is sure welcome!” Felicia said smiling at Thelma who smiled back.
“And yes it’ll be nice Thelma telling your friend he’s wasting his time on Janet!” Shayne said.
“And even if I do it will not be the first time I’ll be saying it, he’s just too dumb to understand anything.” Thelma elaborated.
“Even if you guys say anything I will keep fighting for Janet’s love” Zane said.
“Oh God, I wish I can snap you out of her spell!” Thelma shook her head.
“Well you can’t!” Zane said sharply beside her ear.
“stop spitting on me you idiot!” Thelma barked wiping her ear with her hand leaving Zane in an embarrassed state.
Shayne laughed and earned a glare from Zane.
Zane suddenly stood up.
“Thelma can speak with you privately for a moment!” he asked and she got up too.
“What is it?” she asked.
“Just come with me!” he said as he walked out and she followed him.
They both got out of the cafeteria and as Thelma rested her back on the wall waiting for Zane to start talking he sighed and looked at her.
“what? I thought you said you wanted to talk to me privately.” she smirked.
“Yeah I need to implement some ground rules between us.” Zane said.
Thelma leaned forward. “which are?”.
“Whenever I’m with Janet, one don’t interrupt us, two, whatever I do is none of your business, three don’t insult Janet or me and don’t ever tell me who I need to fall for!” Zane said angrily.
“Zane… Dude… you don’t have to be such–
Zane interrupted. “No seriously Thelma I’m serious! It’s getting too much and I hate it, you’re acting like my second annoying mom!”
“But I’m just looking out for you!” Thelma scoffed.
“Well you’re not, I’m supposed to own that word, you don’t have any right to look after me.! We might have been friends since birth but we’re adult now, we do whatever we like, stop acting like we’re still kids… And stop watching my every move” Zane expound.
“Wow…you’re dumb! And you think crawling behind Janet’s skirt is growing up..?” Thelma asked.
“Yes for me it’s is… Have you ever been in love before?” Zane asked angrily.
Thelma hesitated for a while seeing Janet walking behind Zane and laughing with her friends.
“I guess we both have nothing to loose.” Thelma looked at Zane.
“what?.. Zane leaned back, but In light seconds, Thelma top toed on her feet and dragged Zane’s head kissing him.
Leaving him and his lady stunned.
WHAT HAPPENED TO REBECCA Episode 12 by RUTHIE LEE
Janet froze on her spot when she saw Thelma and Zane kiss. She couldn’t believe it. But yet it was happening.
“what’s wrong.?” Janet’s friend asked.
“Nothing! Let’s pass this way” Janet replied as she and her friend walked to the opposite direction.
“What the hell!” Zane yelled when he broke the kiss.
“You’ll thank me later.!” Thelma smiled.
“Thank you later? You just ruined my first kiss!” Zane barked.
“I didn’t. And this isn’t your first kiss!” Thelma said before smiling and walking away and Zane giving her a death glare.
Lunch break was over and everyone went back to class, Zane and Thelma avoided each other while Janet mood was ruined, Rebecca kept clinging to Mark and shayne and Felicia kept arguing with the little things everyone does.
School was over before they knew it and Mark was kind of glad Rebecca helped them out of detention, he didn’t know how she didn’t but he was glad. He’ll be meeting her sister after all.
“Okay goodbye guys..” Felicia said to, Zane, Mark and Rebecca as they take their route letting the others go their way too. Helen already left thinking Rebecca was still in detention leaving Rebecca to go home with Zane and Mark.
“Okay can you let me breathe for just a second!” Mark said pulling his hand from Rebecca’s grip.
“Hey you should be happy I’m being all clingy to you!” Rebecca rolled her eyes.
“Well don’t be cause I hate clingy girls” Mark said
“Well you’re gonna love me” Rebecca smiled.
“Are all girls like this?”
Zane asked, his voice low.
“What do you mean?” Rebecca and Mark asked at the same time.
Making Rebecca grin at him happily.
“Like how noticed how Rebecca just changed all of a sudden” Zane said taking Mark off guard and Rebecca too.
“What do you mean change?” Rebecca asked almost angrily.
“Don’t get me wrong but you were like quiet and you always hide your emotion and voice out things you think that’s wrong and you definitely didn’t like Mark and now you’re all clingy being all different and I just want to know if all girls are like this!” Zane sounded sad and Mark he wanted to talk about ‘a girl’.
“What are you trying to say?” Rebecca asked calming down knowing her cover hasn’t been blown.
“I’m saying.” Zane sighed.
“Okay is something the matter?” Mark finally asked.
“It’s Thelma!” Zane breathed out.
“Thelma?” Mark repeated.
“Yeah, she’s been acting like Rebecca, being all clingy and watchful over me and seriously I don’t just get why she watches my every move!” Zane sighed.
“i don’t watch Mark’s every move, but if he wants me to then I will” Rebecca smiled.
“Thanks but I don’t want you to” Mark tells her.
Mark turned to Zane “Well I don’t see anything wrong with her watching you”.
“You don’t undertand she just doesn’t watch me, she scolds me, tells me not to like who I like, she’s acting like a teenage mom and I hate it”. Zane complained…
Rebecca suddenly interrupts Mark. “You know Zane, I don’t think you should be pestering my Mark with your complaints like this, do all this babbling to Thelma okay?”.
“I have and then she kissed me!” Zane blurted out.
“No she didn’t!” Mark let out a gentle smile.
“Oh yes she did.” Zane nodded giving him a serious look.
“Well I don’t see how that’s a bad thing!” Rebecca chimed.
“It’s not a bad thing, but I like Janet not Thelma…” Zane stated.
“And Janet doesn’t like you..!” Mark said..
“where did you hear that misinformation… I”I thought you didn’t always listen to our conversations” Zane said angrily but in a playful way.
“Sometimes I try to mind my business but your voice can be louder than my music!” Mark shrugged.
“Janet likes me I can feel it she’s just pretending not to!”.
“If she’s pretending then she’s been pretending for a long time don’t you think?” Mark suggested.
Zane sighed knowing Mark words were meaning a lot.
“But I don’t want to give up on her! I know am so close” Zane said.
“So close to what? Embarrassing yourself even more… Give Thelma a chance” Mark said.
“I’m sorry Thelma?… Thelma doesn’t like me, she just wants to see me live miserably” Zane explained.
“Really? do you really think she wants that?” Mark asked.
“If not that, then what else do you want me to think she wants with me?” Zane asked.
“just let this lay on your mind for a while… Thelma likes you”. Mark said.
“Yeah right” Zane said sarcastically, rolling his eyes.
“Seriously” Mark started to smile “What do you expect for a girl you grew up with, maybe she has feelings for you maybe she don’t, but how do you think she’ll feel when Her childhood boyfriend is suddenly falling for another girl instead of her.” Mark explained.
“Whoa Mark you’re so smart!” Rebecca giggled.
“Well… Now I don’t know what to say”. Zane sighed.
“Because I’m right!” Mark smirked.
“And i wasn’t her childhood boyfriend or whatever you called it!” Zane blurted.
“You are!” Mark tells him.
“I’m not!” Zane retorted.
“Okay if you answer all this questions with a yes! You were her childhood boy friend!” Mark said as a matter of fact.
“what questions?” Zane asked.
“While you guys were kids, did you always spend the whole day together?” Mark asked.
“Yes. Because she was living next door and the only one around my age”. Zane replied.
“Well it’s still a yes, okay second question, did she ever bully you?” Mark asked.
“All the time!”
“Okay, Have you guys have a play date?”
“That’s like everyday” Zane smiled recalling his childhood memories with Thelma.
“A sleepover?” Mark asked.
“Yeah! We have that most of the nights we couldn’t get tired of playing” Zane replied..
“And the last question, Have you ever fought for her or as she ever fought for you?” Mark asked…
“Well she always fought for me, cause she was taller and she look older! But she always fight with boys around my age and she always wins, she was pretty strong, but I’ve fought for her once but then got beaten.!” Zane said making himself and Mark laugh.
“You’re still pretty lazy you know!” Mark chuckled.
“I’m not!” Zane said showing Mark his biceps.
“See you replied all my questions positively, which means you’re her childhood boy friend!” Mark shrugged.
“I’m sorry where did you get to learn all things like this, I always picture you to know cool things, not care about a boy and a girl childhood play date!” Zane laughed
Mark laughed too “I once had a sister who you know… she forced me to listen to her own theory of one of her boyfriend once being her boyfriend when they were little and I get to learn all this!” Mark said and Rebecca’s head snapped up with the mention of Mark’s sister.
“Yeah Jessica was a real deal!” Zane smiled.
Rebecca seemed like she wanted to partake in the conversation but she kept quiet and listen to the boys talk.
Helen walked into the house house with a tired but happy expression. She walked up to the dinning table where her mother and Vera sat and joined them. She greeted them happily and her mother dropped a glass of water for her.
After gulping half of the glass down Helen sighed, “I’m full mom”.
“Its not a matter of being full, you have to finish that before you can have dinner!” Taylor said.
Helen sighed and managed to finish the whole glass earning a smile from her mother who gently took the class for her.
“And Rebecca’s still in detention?” Vera suddenly asked.
“Yeah!” Helen replied.
“What about Mark?” Vera asked.
“Huh? Who’s Mark?”.
“Long hair, grey eyes, voice of an angel”. Vera described.
“huh? You mean the guy who waited for Rebecca the day before yesterday?” Helen asked
“Yeah.. That’s him!” Vera smiled
“How would I know if he’s in detention with Rebecca!”. Helen’s voice echoed around the house.
“Well you’re right!” Vera huffed and stood.
“mom…” Vera called.
“yes?” Taylor arched a brow “Has Rebecca been acting strange to you?” Vera asked.
“strange?” Taylor paused. And Helen’s eyes suddenly dart up to Vera.
“yeah!” Vera nodded.
“Not really…!” Taylor shook her head.
“Seriously she’s not acting like another person to you?” Vera asked.
“Or the fact that she’s acting like a total different happy person?” Taylor smiled.
Vera rolled her eyes, her mom is way behind what’s happening maybe to tell her will be the best.
“What about you Helen, has Rebecca been acting strange to you?” Vera asked.
“Uhm… N..no?” Helen said nervously and Vera raised her brows suspiciously.
“Are you sure?” Vera asked and Helen hesitantly nodded. Vera still remained suspicious staring at Helen until Taylor chimed in.
“I don’t know why you’re asking that cause Rebecca’s still Rebecca”.
“Well to me she’s not! Watch her closely mom!” Vera said before walking away.
Zane said goodbye to Mark and Rebecca seeing that Mark is willing to walk Rebecca to her house, and as they got to the Adam’s residence Rebecca nodded and smiled.
“It’s good you’re willing to come with me to my house, my parents will love you”.
“I’m not going in there for a marriage proposal or anything, I’m here for your sister Vera!” Mark added.
“None of your business”. Mark rolled his eyes.
“Why do you always make me out of your business!” Rebecca huffed.
“Because you’re not supposed to!” Mark retorted.
“Okay…” Rebecca held Mark’s hand. “Tell me what you’re up to and I promise tell you a secret of mine.” Rebecca smiled.
A secret of hers? Mark thought! He knew it wasn’t Rebecca speaking, so he definitely needs to know the secret she’s talking about.
“Okay deal.” Mark smirked.
“okay… why do you need to see my sister?” Rebecca asked inquisitively.
“Cause she promised to teach me some moves…”
“Some moves on what?” Rebecca pressed.
“On how to win a girl!” Mark lied with a smile.
Rebecca’s smile beamed as he giggled.
“Wow because of me?” she asked making Mark nod.
“Now tell me… This secret of yours.?” Mark asked. “Remember a promise is a promise” Mark sounded dark and Rebecca’s expression changed.
She sighed. “I have a list!”
“A list?” Mark asked befuddled.
“Yeah a list of people I love the most!” Rebecca said prolonging the “Love”.
“Really…” Mark arched his brows!
“Yep.. And you’re number one which means… I love you most” she responded happily placing both her hands around his neck.
Mark rolled his eyes as he brought them down.
“You are… I don’t even know what I would call you!” Mark said, and suddenly heard his name from the door of the Adam’s residence.
“Vera!” He called happily walking up to her and Rebecca walking up behind him.
“So no detention today?” Vera asked.
“yeah! Rebecca got us out of it I don’t know how!” Mark shrugged.
“How nice of you Becca!” Vera said bitterly.
“I do things for the ones I love!” Rebecca smiled batting her lashes.
“Get lost!” Vera rolled her eyes grabbing Mark’s hand.
“Hey where are you taking him?” Rebecca yelled.
“Oh wait yeah…” Vera paused and moved closer to Rebecca so close they were inches apart. Vera was slightly taller than Rebecca so she leaned her head on Rebecca’s forehead and in a Whisper she blurted out quietly.
“None of your fucking business Delilah!” Vera smirked and starts to walk up to Mark again, she grabbed Mark’s hand and they both walked away.
Rebecca stared at the two of them fuming in anger, her breathing was Loud and her face became more paler. And in anger she made a turn and walked inside slamming the door.
“I thought we were supposed to be inside… Your house!” Mark said as he and Vera stood under a shady one metre away from the Adam’s residence.
“And let Delilah eavesdrop on our conversation? no way!” Vera shook her head.
“Uh… What did you call her?” Mark asked.
“Delilah! Cause as far as I’m concerned that bitch isn’t my sister.” vera stated.
“Delilah?” Mark repeated. His expression sour and confused.
“Yeah what’s wrong?” Vera asked watching his expression.
“That’s the girl that possessed your sister?” Mark asked.
“Yeah she told me herself, and she said she’s never leaving the body, what does her name ring a bell?” Vera asked.
“It doesn’t even ring a bell.. It is the bell… Delilah is the one who killed my sister!” Mark voice was low and sad.
Vera gasped. “No way… But… How?. How can she posses your sister and then mine.!” Vera asked not sure of what she was saying.
“It happened two years ago…” Mark breathed out.
“And…?” Vera pressed.
“And what?” Mark asked.
“Tell me the whole story!” Vera almost yelled.
“But that is–
“Mark please I need to know everything about Delilah to take her down.” vera sighed.
“Uhm… Okay” he said as he started.
“It was just one night while Jessica, my sister, and I were in my room, then she suddenly asked me if I called her name I said no cause I didn’t, and she started to tell me to stop joking if I was, I said no and we just brushed it off that night, Then the next night she brought her boyfriend home while making out with him i think, in her room, she screamed running into her room, I asked what was wrong thinking her boyfriend had done something to her but she suddenly starts to scold me saying she didn’t like the prankster I’m starting to be, and I wondered what prank I played, I told her I wasn’t the one and I made her believe it really wasn’t me, and when she realised I wasn’t the one she cried telling me she saw a strange looking spider in her room, her boyfriend testified he saw nothing the next day I asked him, and then one night she came into my room saying she heard and saw strange things, I asked her to explain, but she said she couldn’t. I became really worried with her recent screaming and crying, and I decided to know what was wrong, so I volunteered to stay with her that night, my parents weren’t aware cause Jessica never really tells them anything but me since we were so close. That night was peaceful we slept soundly and happily but the next day Jessica changed.!” Mark sighed and paused to catch his breath.
“It’s like the same thing that happened to Rebecca” Vera muttered engrossed in Mark’s story already and he continued anyways.
“But what Jessica turned into wasn’t like Rebecca, Rebecca’s really hyperactive and cheerful, she’s mean and scary at the same time, but when Jessica was posssed she hardly talk, she stays alone and just watches everyone around her, I noticed her awkward behaviour and asked what was wrong, instead of replying she asked who I was, and then I knew it wasn’t my sister, when it got too much I told my parents about it and they too kind of noticed her behavior, we decided to take her downtown to a priest cause you don’t get to see situations like this everyday and there he told us she was possessed he actually made Delilah talk, there he told her to say her name, she said her name and when he made her answer more questions, he started to bleed from his nose and then he died… And seriously maybe another day I can continue this story but not now.. ” Mark breathed out, seeing how scared, angry and sad he looked talking about the past Vera apologized.
“Okay I’m sorry… Maybe another day” Vera nodded.
“But before Jessica died… Before Delilah killed her, she told me I was a weigh on her shoulder and I’m killing her, and then she threatened to kill me when she comes back, she said I’ll be on her list when she comes back!” Mark said and Vera gasped but then Mark head sparked at a thought.
He couldn’t believe what his head just arranged.
“Wait.! If Delilah is back in Rebecca’s body, that means she’ll continue with whatever she came here for in the first place, and before she left she threatened me saying she will kill me and I’m the top in her list, and minutes ago Rebecca told me she had a list of the people she loves most and I’m number one and–
Vera suddenly interrupted. “And that means, Delilah is back to murder you”. Vera gasped.
“She’s pretending to like me to kill me?” Mark asked confused.
“She even threatened me too she told me congratulationsthat I just got on her list as the third!” Vera jaw dropped as she and Mark shared a horrid look.
