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?
