WHAT HAPPENED TO REBECCA Episode 16 by RUTHIE LEE
Vera and Mark came down from the bus that stopped at the bus stop downtown.
“whoa it’s busy down here! Unlike where we live” Vera giggled as she almost got hit by a man who was in a hurry.
“Yeah it’s a lot busier than this, the day Rebecca came here with us, she almost got missing” Mark replied and he led the way and Vera followed.
“Good thing you guys found her! It’s better to see her possessed by Delilah than gone forever!” Vera said.
“Yeah” Mark replied solemnly.
“It’s okay! I know you miss your sister!” Vera said, making Mark glance at her with a nod.
“So This is the town’s amusement park?” Vera asked with disgust.
“Wow you’re just like Becca!” Mark chuckled, thinking how that reaction would have suit Rebecca so much.
“What? You miss her already?” Vera rolled her eyes.
“No I’m just saying, cause she’s always so against everything even if she actually is not against that!” Mark explained making Vera smile at him.
“Mark! Quit talking about my sister for now and let’s focus on finding this weird fortune teller.” vera said, adjusting her face cap, not letting the sun get to her face.
“Yeah… Her tent… Is Over there!” Mark said pointing at the fortuneteller’s colourful tent.
“Thanks… let’s go!” Vera said and started to walk towards there.! With Mark trailing behind her.
Before Vera walked into the tent she said.
“Just in case you don’t know. I hate fortune tellers, shamans, and other predictable beings, they creep me out and act like lunatics”.
“Are you scared to go in?” Mark asked suspiciously.
“Of course I am” Vera admitted, “What if she sees something weird about my future?”.
“Then it’s a good thing, cause you’ll get a chance to prevent it!” Mark said.
“Sometimes Mark’s predictions are inevitable, like the one we’re dealing with now!” Vera sighed before walking in.
“i know” Mark muttered to himself before walking in too.
“Oh wow… Customers!” a girl suddenly said standing up with the plate of noodles she was enjoying in her hands.
“Wait?” Mark said. “You’re not the fortuneteller we met that day!”.
“Really? The day you and four of your friends came here? I sure am!” the girl smiled.
“You’re not!” Mark replied, he vividly remembered the last time he was here, the fortune teller lady was big fat, round, puffy, and looked funny, but the one in front of them was a slim looking teenage girl or a girl who would be clocking around twenty to twenty one, dressed in casual clothes, a pink floral dress and her hair was in ponytail, her dress had exposed a small part of her chest and a weird tattoo was drawn there. Mark tried to read but the girl snapped her fingers.
“You read that! You die!” The girl warned grabbing a blue scarf and placing it around her body, preventing anyone from seeing the tattoo.
“sorry!” Mark apologized. “but how did you change from enormous to this?” Mark asked, referring the “this” to her slim and beautiful body.
“Oh that’s actually my sister you met that day I was just joking” the girl laughed maniacally “But we share the same spirit! Now sit” the girl ordered. Sitting down beside the floor table on the floor.
“She’s just a child and I told you they all act crazily” Vera whispered to Mark as they sat on the floor.
“And who doesn’t act crazy?” The girl asked.
“What! Y..you heard that?” Vera asked, thinking of how low she sounded and how faraway they were, the fortuneteller lady couldn’t have probably heard that.
“Yeah I heard it loud and clear but it’s okay, we’re all crazy!” the lady shrugged.
“Uhm… Okay I apologize miss fortune teller.. Vera said, glancing at Mark than at the lady.
“Oh call me Betty… It’s my name though” Betty smiled, she looked pretty and young and Vera suddenly starts to doubt if she was a scammer or a real fortune teller, but those doubts stopped when Mark started.
“So what?” Betty asked.
“Should one of us bring our palms forth, or should we read the tarot card or the hypnosis style..?” Mark asked.
“I don’t do any of those. You could say I’m pretty smart and stronger than my sister, not to brag though, I can look at you and tell you what you want!” Betty said arranging a set of cups that doesn’t need to be arranged in front of her on the table.
“Uhm okay!” Mark replied and slowly Betty raised her head ip to look at Mark.
“Stay still and look me in the eye!” Betty ordered and Mark did so, they both held eye contact until Betty sighed.
“Wow… You have beautiful eyes!” Betty giggled.
“Uh… Thanks… Did you see anyth–“.
Betty suddenly interrupted him talking to Vera. “Why don’t you try looking me in the eyes!”
“Uhm okay sure!” Vera said, glancing at Mark strangely before turning to Betty.
Betty gazed at her eyes with seriousness and Vera was relieved, happy Betty’s serious with her but then Betty smiled.
“Seriously you both have beautiful eyes.!” she smiled..
“Uhm thanks… Don’t you think you might want to do palms reading?” Mark asked, starting to doubt the black haired girl as a fortune teller, she looks nothing like a fortune teller .
“I know how to do my job, and yeah I know what you’re thinking, I am too pretty to be a fortune teller” Betty huffed startling Mark, How in the world did she do that? Mark thought?
“That’s why I don’t go to school, it’s pretty sad though, when you’re able to read and see other people’s future but can’t see yours, it’s caused a lot of chaos with me and school so I don’t do school, instead I joined my family line of fortune telling.” Betty sighed, rolling her eyes.
” Sorry?” Vera mumbled slowly.
“It’s okay!.. You go to school right?” Betty asked.
“Yeah he does but.. I go to college!” Vera replied..
“Wow… How is college like? Do you guys Party all day, like I head, Do they have like different clique, you know the popular girls clique, bad boys cli–
“Sorry Betty, but we came here for you to help us? Remember? Not ask us about school!” Mark reminded her.
“Oh yeah… Sorry… I’m letting my teenage dream of going to an actual school get in my way … I’m sorry.” Betty apologized.
“It’s okay!” Vera said.
“Okay so what are you guys here for anyway?” Betty asked.
“I thought you said you could read that by just looking at us!” Mark asked, feeling suspicious.
“Oh yeah, right, I already did, I am so bad at my job. Sorry… You guys came here for Rebecca right?” Betty asked looking at them and Mark glanced at Vera in a way that says ~she’s-pretty-Good~ at fortune telling, she saw all that in one small gaze.
“Yeah that’s right! Rebecca!” Vera said.
Betty sighed.! “And she’s been possessed by this twin girl Delilah!”.
“Yeah Delilah, but who’s the twin?” Mark asked.
“Delilah… I mean it’s what I saw” Betty shrugged.
“Okay… We came here to know if you’re…”
“You both came here to know if there’s any possible way you can help Rebecca by bringing her out of the dark and ending Delilah, without hurting Rebecca!” Betty explained making Vera smile a bit, she’s good and pretty for a fortune teller.
“Okay I can’t exactly tell what kind of spirit Delilah is unless I meet her in person, but I know Rebecca isn’t dead yet, she comes out sometimes to her own body right?” Betty asked playing with her hair!.
“Yeah she did.. Today! Too!” Mark replied.
Betty bit her small lips “Well honestly, you guys have to act fast, cause as time goes by Delilah spirit will be the only thing in Rebecca’s body, ending the real Rebecca! And when she’s done with Rebecca she’ll end her body too.! Evil spirits aren’t the best!” Betty shook her head.
“Evil… Spirits?” Mark asked his eyes boring to Betty’s, and she smiled at him. “You’re cute!”
“Uh thanks, but we’re talking about other things here… You know about Rebecca!” Mark pointed at.
“You like Rebecca… So Much.. Don’t you?” Betty grinned.
“Yeah… But not the fact that I want to date her! Don’t misunderstand” Mark barked.
“Oh… Well do you want me to look into your love life of you and her!” Betty asked making Vera laugh.
“No. We came here for Rebecca and Delilah remember!” Mark noted.
“Yeah Betty be real!” Vera smiled still can’t help the funny fact that Mark was actually flushed by the mention of his love life with Rebecca.
“Okay..! Where were we?” Betty asked..
“You said Delilah is an evil spirit!” Mark helped.
“Yeah!” Betty nodded.
“Is there a thing as evil and nice spirit, aren’t all spirits bad?” Vera asked.
“Nope…! Some spirit might possess you, to have the chance to live again, and while being in your body for a while they live happily, those are the nice spirits, the evil spirits are the ones who’s spirit’s have been wondering on earth for too long, and if wondering on earth, they watch a lot of things they can’t do being done by the human flesh, that spirit becomes vengeful and wicked for dying too soon and become evil.” Betty explained.
“So Delilah is an evil spirit and her goal?” Mark asked.
“Her goal is to kill, what else… Like how she killed so many people when she was in your sister, and how she’s going to kill so much more.! And for example you two!” Betty smiled.
“Yeah we know that!” Mark shrugged.
Vera glanced at Mark to see his expression by the mention of Delilah possessing Jessica and killing a lot of people.
“So How do we stop Delilah!” Mark asked.
Betty shrugged. “I don’t know!”
“But… Aren’t you allowed to see that?” Vera asked.
“Vera!” Betty called… Leaving Vera to wonder how she knows her name but then again, she’s a fortune teller, they do and see crazy things, so what’s her name she can’t know.
“We see sometimes, and we can’t say out that thing, I wish I could tell you how but I can’t, why? Not because I’ve seen it but I can’t say it, but because I haven’t seen anything about destroying Delilah I have to Meet her in person!”. Betty shrugged.
“Uhm… Okay about Rebecca, how can we make her come out more often!” Vera asked, at least if they have no idea of destroying Delilah then she will have to talk to her sister more often.
“Well I believe Rebecca must have told you guys the place she is now!” Betty asked.
Mark nodded. “Yeah she told me and I told Vera!”.
“The place Rebecca is, is very creepy and it’s about life and death, it’s Like a place where her spirit determines whether she lives or die, it’s like… I don’t know how to make you guys understand that this, but she did tell you guys about a door. That door is life, it’s like her a way to her body, and everyday that door shrinks, so if you waste more time in taking Delilah down, that door continues to shrink and shrink till there is no door and Rebecca spirit is gone and will stay there until it perishes and once Delilah is done with Rebecca’s body, she’ll kill the body and look for another person’s body, to continue her evil deed! So Rebecca is kind of in grave danger!” Betty explained. And continued anyway while Mark and Vera listened.
“Rebecca, can see nothing, and hear nothing, but sometimes hear your voices, it’s distant but sometimes she heard your voices and that gives her the encouragement to see you, so she fight her way though the door, and when her spirit is back in her body, it can’t stay long cause somehow Delilah is in charge! So if you feel like talking to your sister every now and then, just call on to her, say things only Rebecca knows and not Delilah okay!” Becca smiled.
“Yeah thanks for the tip, but if we don’t act fast Rebecca’s going to die! Spiritual and physical. What should we do!” Vera asked…
Betty sighed and stood up.. “well that’s all I saw I can say no more… I’m sorry” Betty shrugged.
“Well it’s okay, at least we got a few things!” Mark said standing up and so did Vera.
“Yeah! I feel like we wasted our time coming here… No offense Betty!” Vera said but Betty just shrug.
“It’s okay, I understand. But one last thing guys, Delilah’s spirit is dangerous very dangerous, she was dangerous as a human before she died and became an evil spirit when she died. Be careful she’s not just a girl” Betty warned.
“Thanks! Let’s go Mark!” Vera said wanting to go out the door when Betty called yelled.
“You haven’t paid yet! You’re leaving!”
“Yeah.. Right!” Vera said bringing out a couple of notes and giving it to Betty,
“Well…” Betty smiled “You guys are pretty nice people! Keep your money and come to my party instead, I’m having a party tomorrow night! Please come!” Betty asked.
“Uh… I Don’t do parties” Mark said.
“And I have a sister to save!” Vera chipped in.
“Please… I’m having a party and I only invited myself, don’t think it’s nice for you guys to be there, as my friends! My parents are out of town” Betty pleaded.
“Sorry… We’re not friends!” Vera eyed her.
“I know but, at least be there, I don’t even have any friends, and who would want to be friends with a creepy teenage girl who sees things.! Please and you can tell Rebecca to come and maybe I can meet Delilah in person and maybe see if I can see more about her!” Betty said getting Vera’s attention.
“It will be a win-win for the both of us, me finally having a teenage party like my dream! And you getting more information from me about Delilah!” Betty said with pleading eyes…
“Deal!” Vera smirked.
“Yay!” Betty squeaked happily.
“Buckle up Mark, we’re going to a party” Vera smiled.
“Yeah.. Right.” Mark replied sarcastically, he hates parties. But he kind of has no choice.
“Okay…” Betty walked up to Vera, “Can I have your phone?”
“Why?” Vera asked.
“You need my phone number!” Betty replied and Vera brought out her phone and handed it to Betty, as Betty took the phone from Vera, her hand gently brushed against Vera’s, and she gasped heavily, which meant she just saw something.
“What is it?” Vera asked and Mark walked up to them pleading secretly she just saw something about Rebecca.
“I can’t tell you!” Betty shook her head at Vera.
“Seriously Betty! Tell me! Is it about Rebecca?” Vera asked.
“No.” Betty shook her head.
“Then what is it?”
“It’s your boyfriend Ross!” Betty said.
Mark suddenly looked disappointed.
“he’s cheating on you! With Brenda, they who hooked up this Wednesday Friday, made out and then it got to the next level.!” Betty explained…
“Tell me you’re joking!” Vera was surprised to the core.
“I wish I can!” Betty bit her lip.
“That son of a b*tch” Vera growled angrily. While Betty typed in her phone number and gave the phone to Vera.
“Sorry!” Betty apologized “I shouldn’t have told you, but I was supposed to, cause he’s planning to dump you, when he sees you in college next week!” Betty blinked rapidly.
“Well thanks Betty!” Vera said sadly.
“No problem. Now I made you sad, come to my party tomorrow and you’ll be the happiest!” Betty said.
“Yeah sure.” vera said lackadaisical, typing something angrily on her phone.
“Okay thanks we’ll be going now! Still you deserve this!” Mark said calmly handing some amount of dollar notes to Betty.
“Thanks. I’ll go buy myself a dress for tomorrow!” Betty snitched the money from Mark with a grin.
As Vera and Mark walked out of the tent Vera huffed.
“I’m sorry… About… Your….
“oh please!” Vera rolled her eyes. “it’s a good thing we came here, Betty did a pretty job, I get to dump Ross before he did!”.
“Guys!” Betty popped out of her tent with a smile.
“It’s about Delilah!”
“What about her?” Mark asked.
“She has a doll” Betty replied.
“A white Teddy bear!” Vera stated and Rebecca nodded..
“She’s looking for that doll! And if she gets a hold of it, everyone’s doomed!” Betty said and walked back inside the tent. Making Mark and Vera look at each other before.m they start walking.
“Still haven’t find the doll. Really?” Rebecca rolled her eyes at Helen.
“i searched the floor table but I couldn’t find it!” Helen said.
“Well keep searching cause it’s still in this house!” Rebecca yelled.
“Don’t yell at me!” Helen yelled.
“Okay fine! I’m sorry!” Rebecca breathed out.
Taylor who was quitely coming down the stairs, heard their voices but paused and decided to listen to what they were actually talking about.
“I won’t yell at you okay! Don’t you want me to make you fly?” Rebecca asked.
“I want to! But you yelling at me is making it difficult for me” Helen pouts.
“Okay I’m sorry,” Rebecca apologized but Helen still kept her angry face.
Rebecca sighed and said, “Okay fine!” Rebecca looked around and feeling like they were alone she position her hand in front of Helen. Taylor hiding behind the house pillars, watched closely as Rebecca’s head tilt and hand twitched and slowly Helen’s feet start to lift from the ground.
“whoa” Helen giggled.
“See I managed to get you this far, find my doll and I’ll do more” Rebecca said and dropped Helen carefully.
“okay!” Helen jumped happily.
Taylor’s jaw was dropped open, she couldn’t believe what she just saw, her daughter wasn’t just only possessed by someone, but someone with special abilities!
WHAT HAPPENED TO REBECCA Episode 17 by RUTHIE LEE
Taylor quietly walked back to her room and slowly closed the door, she couldn’t believe what she just saw. Rebecca isn’t actually Rebecca, so Vera has been right all along and she thought Vera was lying.
And it seemed like Rebecca wasn’t just possossed by a normal being, but someone with an outrageous ability.
“Finally almost home! I’m starving” Vera whined as she and Mark got close to her parent’s house.
Mark remained quiet, being the quiet guy he is until Vera stopped and turned to him.
“Wait… you know Betty said we have to invite Rebecca right? So she has to know what kind of spirit Delilah is.!” Vera said.
“Yeah?” Mark leaned his head forward trying to understand where Vera was going.
“Well Delilah knows I know about her, and it would be totally weird if I walk up to her and said ‘hey Delilah would like to come to a party?’ don’t you think that will sound weird? She’ll know we have something planned under our sleeves!”
“okay so?” Mark asked.
“You do the invitation, invite her! At least she’s pretending to love you, why won’t she say yes!” Vera shrugged.
“Oh okay… But don’t you think it’s weird.” Mark asked.
“That a stranger whom we just met today invited us to a party and we said yes! What if she’s planning something?” Mark asked.
“I already had the same thought don’t worry, whatever happens I’ll bring a knife with me!” Vera joked.
“This isn’t a joke Vera… I’m Serious,” Mark sighed.
“I’m sorry, okay, look I know it’s weird but Betty seems like a nice person she can’t actually be that bad, we didn’t do anything bad to her so why would she?” Vera shook her head.
“You can’t judge a book by it’s cover, just like how you can’t actually think, this girl wants to murder the both of us!” Mark said pulling out a small picture from his pocket and handing it to Vera.
“Who’s this?” Vera asked looking at the girl in the picture with a cute smile and black straight hair that matched her round face.
“Who else..! it’s Delilah!” Mark said.
“Wow… Why didn’t you give this to Betty, maybe she might have seen something” Vera said.
Mark scratched his head “i kind of forgot and… She said she needs to meet her in person!”
“And that’s why we need to go to her dream party!” Vera smiled.
“Oh… yeah!” Mark said with a sigh.
“So I need you to invite Rebecca and dress well for the party!” Vera smiled.
“Yeah right” Mark said sarcastically
“And how did you get Delilah’s picture!” Vera asked.
“Found it from Jessica’s stuff, long story I’ll tell you later!”Mark said tiredly.
“Oh it’s going to be great I have look my best! I love parties, but it’s kind of sad I’ll be partying with a bunch of high school kids!” Vera primped.
“High school kids?” Mark rolled his eyes.
“Yeah, aren’t you like 17 or something?” Vera rolled her eyes.
“I’m nineteen!” Mark tells her.
“Which changes nothing, I’m still older and in college!” Vera pointed out.
“Yeah whatever!” Mark said.
“Finally home!” Vera said when they walked in front of her parent’s house.
“You know you have to come in, sometime!” Vera smiled.
“Really?” Mark arched his brows.
“Yeah!” Vera said and held his arm pulling him to the door.
“Uh… I don’t really have to!” Mark said resisting.
“You have to invite Rebecca yourself and don’t worry, I’ll introduce you to my parents as Rebecca’s groom!” Vera joked.
“What?” Mark cheeks flushed.
“joking! Again. Now come on in and meet my, not so welcoming house with Delia’s spirit and ego all over the place” Vera said, as she opened the door and they walked in.
Vera quickly fixed Delilah’s picture inside her Jean pants pocket as she saw Helen and Rebecca in the living room, looking for something.
“Vera!” Helen called happily. Running up to Vera and Mark, making Rebecca notice them and gave a faux smile seeing them.
“Hey Helen… what are you guys up to?” Vera asked referring to the guys as Helen and Rebecca.
“Uhh… We’re just playing games…” Helen lied nervously.
“What kind of game?” Vera ask suspiciously.
“Uhm.. ..” little Helen couldn’t think of anything!.
“We were playing hide and seek!” Rebecca helped walking up to them.
“Really… Cause the Rebecca I know doesn’t play games… And then again with her little sister!” Vera said while Mark glance at Helen who suddenly said. “That’s because Rebecca isn’t th– Rebecca quickly shoved Helen preventing her talking and Helen kept quiet.
Vera glanced at Mark to signal him that Helen knows something but she’s hiding it from them.
“Well sis… People change and so did I!” Rebecca snarled, making Mark look at her softly, that word made her big impact on what he was thinking, when Delilah possessed Jessica, she was so quiet she hardly spoke, her words fumbled each time she tried to talk but now in Rebecca’s body she’s all hyperactive.
She really did change.
“Oh Markie, my mean head sister didn’t let me acknowledge your presence!” Rebecca said walking up to Mark to give him a hug, but wanted to protest but one look that says “play-along” from Vera, he decided to hug her head, his hand circling her tiny waste.
“Oh it hasn’t been long since we came back from school together but I miss you already!” Rebecca said letting go of Mark.
“Yeah and I came here to see you actually!” Mark said feeling uncomfortable lying.
“oh wow!” Rebecca smiled happily while Helen walked away from them and so did Vera.
“DISTRACT HER!” Vera mouthed to Mark before leaving, while he gave her a nod of approval, Vera dragged Helen upstairs.
“What?” Helen asked scardly.
“What? Seriously Helen what has Delilah done to you?” Vera raised her brows.
Helen gasped. “You know about too?”.
“Of course I do, you think I’m dumb, you knew and you told no one, Helen are you crazy?” Vera yelled. “I’m so sorry, she said, I should keep it a secret!” Helen mumbled.
“Okay when anyone tells you a secret! Family excluded! got it!” Vera stated.
“But she said I should keep it from you guys the most!” Helen stated.
“Well guess what? You’re the worst sister of the year” Vera said knowing the word would pierce a whole in Helen’s heart and it did.
She suddenly starts to tear up.
“Cry all you want, you deserve it!” Vera said sternly.
“I’m sorry!” Helen said.
“Yeah, whatever.?” Vera rolled her eyes.
The door to Vera’s room and Taylor walked in.
“What’s going on?” Taylor asked scared Vera might be bullying Helen, seeing the heavy tears in her eyes.
“Oh… Why don’t you ask your daughter, who’s now become a liar” Vera said sternly folding her hand.
“She told me to keep it a secret I’m sorry!” Helen cried.
“Shhh…” Taylor said to Helen turning to Vera.
“Vera!” Taylor swallowed.
“I believe you, I can’t believe I didn’t see the changes in Rebecca and what kind of mother am I?” Taylor huffed.
“It’s okay mom… You believe me… But guess what? Helen here has been a pretty little minion for–
“And it’s not just that! She has powers too… I.. I saw her lift Helen up the ground.” Taylor breathed out.
“What?” Vera said confused. And turned to Helen.
“Is this true?” Vera asked Helen.
“Yes” Helen nodded. “she can make things float too!” she sniffed.
“And you didn’t tell me? What kind of sister are you? Do you know Delilah is planning to kill me, kill the boy downstairs and then end Rebecca’s body!” Vera yelled.
“What?” Taylor half yelled.
“Yeah mom, she threatened me. She said she’s gonna kill me!” Vera rolled her eyes like it was nothing.
“I’m sorry” Helen apologized again cleaning her tears.
“It’s okay, now tell me, what else did Delilah tell you?” Vera asked.
Helen glanced at her curious mother then at Vera before spitting out.
“She said she’s going to make me fly even higher if I find her doll” Helen sniffed.!
“Her doll?” Taylor replied.
“Yeah mom , that creepy Teddy bear you gave Helen, is Delilah’s and now judging from Helen’s story, that stupid doll must be quite powerful, but good thing it’s under my custody!” Vera said.
“Oh God this is all my fault, if I only believed you! If I had…
“No mom it’s not your fault, it had to happened. But don’t worry I think everything is going to be fine after tomorrow!” Vera said.
“Why what’s happening tomorrow?” Taylor asked
“We’ll be partying”.
“A party?” Taylor asked.
“You know what? I’ll tell you about all this later mom, I have to go” Vera said hurrying out of her room leaving Helen with her mom.
“A party?” Rebecca asked excitedly.
“Yeah a party, I was wondering if you’d like to go with me!” Mark said.
“Of course, and we’ll be going as a date right?” Rebecca asked with the most attractive dimple smile.
“Ye… ah” Mark hesitated. Flushed by her smile.
‘She’s not the real Rebecca!” he tells himself… As she moved closer to him still smiling.
She lifted her body, wanting to kiss him but stopped and smile,
“Did you call the others about this party.?”Rebecca asked suspiciously.
“Uhm yeah… All our friends they’re coming too.” Mark lied not wanting to sound suspicious.
“Good!”? Delilah smiled.
“Okay then it’s a date, I better start preparing what I’ll wear for tomorrow night” Rebecca smiled.
“Yeah I can’t wait” Mark said with no enthusiasm.
“Okay… Markie.!” Rebecca kissed his cheeks.
“Stop! I told you not to do that!” Mark said.
“Why? We’re this close in being in a relationship and you don’t want a simple kiss on the cheeks.” Rebecca pouts.
“Close to a relationship” Mark chuckled.
“And what’s so funny?”
“Nothing! So Becca! Can I ask why you like me so much?” Mark asked.
Rebecca smiled “Because… You’re smart, handsome, cool and funny even without saying anything funny, and people like you don’t give up easily, and that’s what I envy most about you! That’s why you became top on my list, I put people who tends to care for the people they love most on my list! “.
“And this list of yours, Am I allowed to see it?” Mark asked calmly.
Rebecca laughed. “You can’t it’s written here!” Rebecca pointed to her chest.
“Wow how nice of you!” Mark smiled bitterly, while Rebecca smiled too.
Mark’s eyes suddenly dart to Vera who was coming down the stairs and he moved back a bit, “I have.. uhm, I have to go!” Mark said.
“Why? Stay a little bit!” Rebecca smiled..
“No my mom would kill me if I missed curfew!” Mark laughed nervously.
“I can’t believe your parents still set up curfew fo you!” Rebecca rolled her eyes.
“Well they do and I love them. I’ll be back here tomorrow by seven pm to pick you up…” Mark forced a smile.
“Can’t wait!” Rebecca beamed, as she watched walked out the door and then Vera.
She rolled her eyes and muttered the word “Losers!” before walking away to search for her doll.
“Can you believe that little blonde actually knew about Rebecca being possessed by Rebecca but she said nothing about it!” Vera stated. As decided to escort Mark home and in other to tell him other things she just found out.
“Well maybe she had her reasons?” Mark suggested..
“Her reason were because Rebecca told her to keep it a secret! And like promised her she’d make her fly” vera ranted.
“Make her fly?” Mark repeated.
“Yeah, I found out from my mom and Helen that Delilah had super powers or something!” Vera scoffed.
“Superpowers?” Mark paused looking befuddled.
“Yeah like telekinesis or something, Helen says she makes things floats!” Vera expound.
“What? The?” Mark’s voice. For the first time was almost loud.
“Yeah you heard me right, I haven’t seen it myself but my mom told me so, she said she saw Helen being lifted by Rebecca! That sounds a bit like a crazy fictional story, but it’s my mom we’re talking about she once doubted me, but now she saw it with her own two eyes!” Vera said.
“Okay I have so many questions now!” Mark said.
“Save it! We have Betty you can tell her everything, I’m as confused as you are and it’s already getting dark so…” Vera shrugged
“Yeah!” Mark said.
“And also Rebecca kind of sounded like she was suspecting me when I invited her to the party!” Mark said.
“Really, what did she say?” Vera asked.
“She asked if the others, you know my friends were coming along and I lied and Said yes.”
“Wait! What? You didn’t lie! of course you’re going to invite your friends over tomorrow! How do you expect us to go to a party with just me, Betty, you and Rebecca don’t you think Delilah would be suspicious?” Vera scoffed.
“But Betty’s having a party she’s supposed to bring friends right, she doesn’t need mine!” Mark said…
“Betty’s hosting a party, she’s the only guest and also the host! Where were you when she said she had no friends because of her kind of being?” Vera rolled her eyes.
“Anyways just invite your friends over, so there’s a little crowd and Rebecca doesn’t become suspicious okay!” Vera said.
“Okay!” Mark gave in.
“Thanks Mark, And goodnight” Vera said a small smile
Wanting to walk away but Mark stopped her.
“what?” Vera asked.
“Delilah’s photo” Mark replied
“Can’t I keep it?” Vera asked.
“you live with the devil. No you can’t!” Mark said, Vera sighed and gave the picture to Mark.
She wanted to go again but she stopped and asked for his phone number, …. After getting it she smiled and waved goodbye to him again,
before walking away.
Mark got home feeling a bit tired, he showered before eating dinner, going back to his room and falling on his bed.
Mark took out his phone and phoned Zane.
“Well I’m surprised? Why did you call?“ Zane asked.
“you know a simple hello would have been nice” Mark said calmly.
“it’s because you never call, so… Okay sorry, hello Mark, to what do I owe you for calling me!“ Zane hissed.
“Can you not be a prick and hear me out?” Mark’s voice was low and calm.
“okay fine what is it?“
“What do you think of a Saturday night party?” Mark asked.
“What? Who’s the host, what’s the address… I wouldn’t miss it for the world.“ Zane rushed his words.
“Oh right I already forgot this prick is a party popper!” Mark said sarcastically.
“You know me too well“ Zane laughed devilishly.
“Okay then I want you to call the others and invite them too, I’m a little bit sleepy, invite, just us friends. The host doesn’t like a crowd” Mark said, his eyes closing.
“Okay! Can I invite ja–
“Yes you can Invite Thelma… No One else” Mark said. “tomorrow I’ll send you the address… Goodnight”.
“What? I wanted to say Janet you di–*
Mark hung up on him and dropped his phone beside him as his eyes slowly closes and he goes to sleep.
Zane stood beside his window and texted shayne.
*Yo shay… Mark just invited me to a party tomorrow… You’re invited too.. And ishia too. *
It wasn’t long until shayne replied
Wtf? This news just made my night! Felicia’s gonna be so happy hearing this… It’s been ages we lived like teenagers
okay man… gotta go invite the rest. Zane said,
He looked at Thelma’s name and picture on his contact list wondering if he should call her or text her, after thinking for a while he went with texting.
hey Thelm.. We just got invited to a party!
And right away she replied.
Don’t know but I think Mark’s one of the host? Zane sent.
Wow Mark! Great I’ve been wanting to talk to him for ages, a party and meeting Mark, that’s double great! Thelma replied making Zane read the message over and over again.
‘Why does she wants to see Mark, is anything going on between them’ Zane thought but shrugged it off cause once again it’s none of his business.
Okay tomorrow I’ll text you the address of Mark text it to Me.
Okay sure. Thelma replied.
Zane started to think of a way to invite Janet, he didn’t have her phone number. He decided to ask Thelma for it, since Thelma has a book that contains the information of every single person in the class, but then again, Thelma isn’t going to give it to him.
Felicia sat on her bed, trying to contain her laughter watching a comedy series on her small laptop, when she heard a knocking sound on her window door.
She glanced at her window and the dark night outside to see the silhouette of a boy standing outside, she already knew who it was so she moved to the window and opened it letting shayne in.
Shayne crawled through the window and fell on the floor.
“You could have gone to the front door of my house and give it a knock, walk up to my room and knock on the door like a normal person.” Felicia suggested.
“Shut up ishia… You know how your mom is, she always asks never ending questions even though we live like so close, she asks things she sees everyday and I don’t want her to waste my time with me telling you this exciting news!” shayne said, sitting on her bed.
“What happened! What news?” Felicia asked, curiosity eating its way through her.
“Get me water first, I’m thirsty!” shayne said.
“Water! Dude you Live next door, crawl out the window get your water and come back!” Felicia said, sitting on the bed too and grabbing her laptop.
“Okay fine… You’re so mea–
Shayne held back his words when he saw Felicia bring out a bottle of water. She’s always nice.
“I’m so what? ” Felicia asked.
“You’re so nice… thanks” shayne rushed his word snatching the water from Felicia.
Felicia let him enjoy the cooling thirst of the water and as the water burned his thirst, he smiled and said.
“We’re going to a party!”.
“Party? What Party?” Felicia asked.
“Mark’s party?” Felicia asked pushing her laptop aside on the bed.
“Yeah! Surprised too.? Mark having a party! Well seems like it cause he called zane and Zane called me, we’ll receive the address and time tomorrow!” shayne explained.
“And everyone is going!?” Felicia asked.
“Yep everyone!” shayne said.
“And I don’t see any reason for us to be left out!” Felicia grinned.
“Now get lost I have to continue my series!” Felicia said using her leg to push him off her bed…
“You’re mean!” shayne got up angrily, opened her door and walked out.
“So you’re using the front door now…” Felicia yelled mockingly, as Shayne slammed the door angrily.
“Leave me alone Felicia!” shayne yelled back.
Felicia shook her head giggling, she grabbed her phone and one by one Felicia starts to invite everyone from class to the party. And Mark’s words were to invite only themselves, but Felicia not hearing that from anyone she went and invite the whole class.
That night everyone slept like never before, the party on everyone’s mind, Vera couldn’t wait for the party, mostly because Betty would be meeting deliah and so did Mark thought. Rebecca couldn’t wait too. And Delilah couldn’t wait because it’s been ages since she attended parties…. Other Than that everyone’s mind couldn’t help the fact that they’ll be having a good time at the party!
