💋 Chapter Five💋

Dylan stood up and frowned his face.
“No granny, I can’t get married to an ugly looking lady. What do you think people will say? Besides, I don’t love her”

The old woman stood up from the creaky bed and walked towards Dylan.
“Dylan. Even if you aren’t my son. I still take you as my own”

“But granny…” He turned to face her.

“Stop! When the time is right, I’ll tell you when to approach her. For now, you have to protect her. You should go back home now. Since you came back, you haven’t gone to see your family” she said and slowly walked out of the room.

“Granny, is there another option?” He asked.

“Marry her or become a cripple?” She turned and asked him.

Dylan gave a weird smile and nodded his head.
“I’ll marry her”

“Good boy” she said and left the room.
The next morning, Dylan’s personal assistant, Leo came to the old cottage and picked Dylan.

Leo stuffed the luggage into the booth of the black Jeep and waited for Dylan to come out of the house.

He came out after some time with the old woman.
“Take good care of yourself Dylan” she said waving at him.

Dylan walked towards her and hugged her.
“Thanks granny”

“Hmmm, don’t forget what I told you”

“Sure, I won’t” he replied and walked into the car.

Leo closed the door and drove off.

“Where are we going master?” He asked

“Home” he replied.

“Yes master” Leo replied and started the engine.

Dylan closed his eyes and thought about what his granny told him.
“How on Earth am I gonna marry that ugly thing?” He thought and hissed loudly.

Leo stared at him through the front mirror and focused on the road.
Beauty and Sally sat in the car opposite the supermarket all day waiting for the old woman to come.
“I’m already losing hope” Beauty said slowly as she lowered her gaze.

“No, don’t loose hope. We will find her” Sally said and focused her gaze in the supermarket.
Leo pulled over in front of Dylan’s family mansion.
Dylan stepped out of the car and headed inside the house.
He knew how much he is not wanted here but he just need to check on them. They are part of his family.

As he stepped his feet into the house, everyone diverted his gaze to him.
They threw their face away from him except his younger step sister, Tara.

She stood up and walked towards Dylan.
“Hey big brother” she said.

Dylan removed his right hand from his pocket and ruffled 16 year old Tara’s hair.

“I missed you Tara” he wrapped his hands round her.

Tara smiled at him.
“I missed you too. I’m glad you’re back”
“Tara, get back here!” Her mother yelled.

Tara frowned and stared at him.
“Let me run away with you” she whispered to him.

“Your mom is gonna kill me” he whispered in reply.

She gently laughed and waved at him.
“Bye!” She went to sit beside her mom.

Dylan stared at his step mother, step brother and younger step sister, Tara.
His dad wasn’t home. He decided to wait for him.

His step mother never invited him in, that’s her behavior.
Anytime he came for a visit, he was never welcomed except his father arrive from work.

Dylan stood for almost an hour before he heard his father’s footsteps.
He swiftly turned his neck and saw his father walking towards to him.

“My son is here” he said and hugged Dylan.

“Hey Dad” he greeted.

He waited and had dinner with them.
“So, where have you been Dylan?”

“I went for a job hunt in Africa” he replied.

“Job hunt? You are my son. Why going to look for job when you can get a job in my company”

“Oh thanks dad. I just want to be independent on myself. When I need help, I’ll come meet you” he replied.

“No problem Dylan. I know you are capable and not lazy like some other people” he replied indirectly referring to his other son.

Dylan left the house after eating, he didn’t wait for anyone. He could have bid Tara goodbye if her mother didn’t send her to her room.

He entered his car and closed the door.
“Let’s go home already. This place sucks” he said to Leo.

Leo nodded and hit the road.
Dylan was happy that he has arrived in his beautiful mansion.
His secret mansion!

He went in and clapped his hands twice. The lights suddenly came on. He walked to his room as Leo followed him behind with his luggage.

“Home sweet home” he said and threw himself on the bed.

“I’ll be going now master” Leo said.

“Yeah yeah. We are going to the company tomorrow. Don’t forget” he said to Leo.

“Yes master”

“You can leave” Dylan waved his hand towards the door.

Leo bowed and left.
Beauty and Sally arrived home late. They tiredlessly walked into the mansion.

“We will go back tomorrow. We won’t rest till you get the woman that did this to your face” Sally said as she followed Beauty to her room.

“I wish Sally, I wish” she muttered slowly.

“You can go and rest now. I can take care of myself” she added.

Sally nodded and went to her room.

Beauty entered into her room and closed the door.
She walked towards her bed and threw herself to the bed.

“I hate my life. Why me? Why?!!” She yelled into her pillow.

She received a message that she needed to be present at the head office tomorrow morning.

“Oh no, why?!!” She yelled again.

“I can’t go like this” she added.

She started crying again till she slept off.
Dylan woke up early and started getting ready to go to the company.
It’s been a long time.
He has been living a secret life since God knows when.

He stared at his reflection on the mirror, admiring himself.
Dylan was just 28 years old. His mother died when he was five. A mystery death!

His step mother threatened to kill him if he doesn’t leave the mansion.
Poor Dylan left the house when he was five.

That was when he met that old granny. She took care of him and supported him financially. He completed his education with the help of the old granny.

He won a a scholarship and went to study abroad. That was when he gathered some money and became who he is today.

No one knew who he was, not even his employees.
Well, except Leo.

Leo walked into Dylan’s room.
“Good morning master”

“Let’s go!” Dylan said and sprayed some perfume on his body before leaving the mansion.

Beauty and Sally was also heading to the head office.
Beauty was trying her best to cover her face very well but it’s just still visible.

“They are going to mock me Sally” she said and threw the scarf on the chair.

Sally concentrated on the road.
“Calm down Beauty. When we get there, I’ll help you with it”

Beauty exhaled deeply and leaned on the chair.
Sally increased her speed and finally arrived at the head office.
She pulled over and helped Beauty with her scarf.

Beauty wore her nose mask and huge glasses again.
“It’s better” she said and adjusted it a little.

“Quick, go in before anyone sees you” Sally said.

“Yeah” she said and quickly went out of the car.

She catwalked into the head office and went straight to the MD’s office.

She opened the door and stepped into the office.

“Good morning” she greeted.

The MD adjusted his glass and stared at Beauty.
“Who are you? Why didn’t they stop you at the reception?”

Beauty walked towards him and took off her glasses.
“It’s me Beauty”

His eyes shot wide open as he slowly stood up.
“Miss Beauty. It’s really true”

“Yes, it’s true” she replied.

The MD pointed at the chair opposite him.
“Come have a seat”

Beauty slowly walked towards him and sat down.
“What really happened?”

“I don’t know. I just woke up and found my face like this” she replied almost crying.

“Oh my, that’s really bad” He shook his head.

He brought out the file that she signed.
“You’ve been nominated for the most beautiful model in the world. What do we do now that you’ve changed?”

“Please, don’t do anything. My face will be back to normal soon. Just give me a little time”

“It’s not me Beauty. It’s concerned with the whole world. Just wish you win. I don’t know how you will win with all these”

Beauty sighed and stood up.
“Thanks. I’ll try my best to have my face back” she said and left.

The MD shook his head.
“Beautiful Beauty is now ugly”

Beauty walked out of the office and stood behind the door.
She saw people staring at her and murmuring.

She then remembered that she left her glasses in the MD’S office.
She swiftly opened the door and went to pick the glass from the table.

She left the office and started walking towards the exit.
“Look who we have here, ugly beauty”

She stopped and turned to see a lady behind her.
It was the same one that saw her the last time.

“Just who are you?” Beauty mustered the courage and asked.

“Your worst nightmare. Take the pictures!”

Her friends and other people behind her started to take pictures of her. Some people went live and started laughing at her.

Tears rolled down her cheek as she lowered her gaze.
He wished the ground should open mouth and swallowed her up.

“Awwn, look how she’s crying. So sad. You deserve it bullshit!!”

Suddenly, Beauty felt someone cover her.
She couldn’t look up to stare at the person but she knew that she was now protected.

“Leo, make sure that lady is blacklisted in the modelling industry, both national and international”

“Yes master!”

💋 Chapter Six💋

Beauty heard him say so. She arched her eyebrows and slowly raised her head to look at the man who was saving her.

She saw his cute pink lips and wavy hair. She couldn’t look into his eyes because he was very tall.
“Who the f–k is this?! Hey, get out!” The lady yelled at Dylan.
He rolled his eyes and stared at Beauty.
Beauty saw his eyes, cute blue eyes.

“Stop staring and head outside” he said and nodded towards the door.

Beauty lowered her gaze and cleaned her tears.
She turned and walked towards the door.

Dylan rolled his eyes and walked behind her.
She had spoilt everything. He wanted to go into the office secretly but she’s spoilt everything.

Beauty quickly went out and ran to her car.
“Thank you” she said to Dylan.

Dylan ignored her and walked his own car.
Beauty rolled her eyes and entered her car.

“Let’s go Sally”

“What happened? You came out with your face like this”

“Long story, let’s leave from here” she said and left.

Beauty told Sally everything that happened in the company.

“Really? A stranger saved you?”

Beauty nodded her head.

“Wait wait!!!” Sally quickly pulled over.

Beauty ran out of the car and went to meet the old woman she found by the road.

“I’ve found her at last!!” She yelled at Sally.

The old woman stared at Beauty and frowned.
“What do you want?” She asked in her shaky voice.

“Please, get this thing off my face. I can pay whatever amount you want but please get it off”

The old woman shook her head and continued walking with her heavy bag. She was just coming from the grocery store.

Beauty frowned and walked beside the old woman.
“Excuse me, I know you aren’t deaf. Please please. I know you want me to be good and not rude, so I’m pleading with you. Get this trash off my face” Beauty said calmly this time.

The woman threw her bag at Beauty.
“Follow me” she said.

“Please just let’s use my car so that we can be faster” Beauty pointed at the car.

The old woman stared at the car. Sally waved at her.

She ignored her and kept on walking.
Beauty followed her behind. The sun was too hot.

Beauty started to sweat as she walked beside the woman.

Sally drove with them slowly. She was getting tired because the woman was too slow.

After an hour, they arrived at an old cottage.
Beauty squeezed her face and followed her into the compound.
It was very old and tattered.

Sally parked the car and slowly alighted from the car.

“Ohh, my son is here” she smiled and went into house.

“My baby!” She called out.

“I’m here granny!”
She heard a quick response.

Beauty stared round the whole small house and was feeling uncomfortable.

“Oh, you. Go drop the groceries in the kitchen” she pointed at a door.

Beauty nodded and slowly went to the place the woman called a kitchen.

Beauty placed the bag on an old stool and walked out of the kitchen.

“Have a seat” she pointed at a chair.
Without complain, she sat on the chair.

Sally waited outside for Beauty. She leaned in Dylan’s car. Suddenly, the car horned.

She shook in fear and started breathing hard.

Leo came out from the car and stood beside her.
“What are you doing here?” He asked.

She rolled her eyes and looked away from him.
“Why are you asking me?” She replied.

“Whatever” he replied and went back into the car.

Sally rolled her eyes and leaned on the car again.

Leo horned at her again.

She was frightened again. She angrily went to stand beside Beauty’s car which was distanced from the house.
Beauty sat for some time waiting for the old woman to speak.
“Ma’am?” She called out.

The old woman instantly turned her head to stare at Beauty.
“Yes?” She asked.

“My face” she pointed.

“Oh, there’s nothing I can do for that. Once I’ve cursed you, the curse can never be broken” she said.

Beauty jerked up and yelled.

“The curse will be broken on its own. Just do what you are asked to do” she replied.

Suddenly, Dylan came out from a room with his phone on his left hand.
“Hey granny”

Beauty furrowed her eyebrows when she saw him.
“Does he have a twin?” She murmured.

“Ohh my dear. Why did you come back?” She asked.

“Nothing much. Something happened at the company so I had to leave” he replied and sat beside Beauty.

“Hmm” the woman nodded.

Beauty slowly sat and stared at Dylan.
“Why are you staring at me?” He asked.

“Sorry. Do you in any way have a twin?” She scratched her head.

He hissed and looked away from her.

Beauty didn’t cover her face at all. She lowered her gaze.
She almost forgot that she was now ugly.

“I’m sorry” she murmured.

Dylan stared at her.
“I’m Dylan” he stretched his hand.

“I’m beau..” she bit her lips.

“Just call me Beauty” she completed it and shook his hand.

The old woman cleared her throat and stared at Beauty.
“Go make something for me to eat”

Beauty shot her mouth wide open.
“What? I don’t know how to cook” she replied.

“There’s spaghetti in the kitchen. Prepare it. I’m hungry!” She yelled.

Beauty quickly sprung up and slowly walked the kitchen.
She brought out her phone and quickly read some steps on how to prepare spaghetti and tomato sauce.

She didn’t understand a bit but she could try.
She slipped the phone back into her pocket.

She put the pot on fire and poured some water into it.
She poured the spaghetti into the pot and covered it.

She roughly diced the tomatoes and onions.
“Granny, how do you expect me to marry her?”

“Look Dylan. You have to get married to her. You are destined to be together. I won’t force you but trust me, you will fall in love with her”

Dylan kept quiet. He knew anything granny say was always true. It would surely come to pass.

“Would she know about my secret?”

“You will tell her after you are married. I’ll advice you both to do a secret marriage” the granny said almost in a whisper.

“My family?”

“Don’t let them know. They will know everything with time” she said.

Dylan sighed and leaned on the chair.
Beauty prepared the meal after an hour.
She dished it and brought it for the granny.

“Oh gosh, I think it’s bad” she thought.

Granny took a spoonful and nodded.
“Nice. But next time, make it more spicy”

“Spicy food isn’t good for your health” Beauty said.

The granny diverted his gaze to her.
“Go get some for Dylan”

She nodded and went into the kitchen.
She came back with two plates.
She gave Dylan a plate and took the other one outside.

Sally saw her walking out of the house. She ran to meet her.

“Thank goodness, I thought something must have happened to you”

“I’m fine. I made this” Beauty gave Sally the plate of spaghetti.

“What? You made this?”

“Yeah, the granny made me cook it. I know you must be hungry. Just eat okay. I’ll be out soon” Beauty said and went back inside.

Granny and Dylan were done cooking.
Granny pointed at a bucket.
She went towards the bucket and fetched two cups.

She gave it to them each and stood watching them gulp down the water.

Dylan didn’t understand how and why granny trusted a stranger to the extent of eating a meal prepared by her.

“I need to go now granny”

“Okay. Make sure you come back here tomorrow. By 8am. Don’t be a minute late. You will prepare something for me to eat for breakfast”

Beauty frowned and nodded.

She quickly left the house and drove off to her house.
Sally drove off to the house, listening to everything the old woman told her.

“Wow, you really prepared the spaghetti well. It was delicious” she said.

“I don’t understand. She said spaghetti and tomato sauce. She was expecting it to the spicy”

Sally gave a gentle laugh.
“When we get home, I’ll teach you some cooking skills”

“Thanks Sally. The young man that saved me at the company was actually there”

“You mean the man that saved you was at the old woman’s place?”

“I just said that” Beauty rolled her eyes.

“That’s strange. But how did he get there so fast?”

“The time spent walked with the old woman was enough for one to get there fast with a car” Beauty replied.

“She is sure weird. After making you wait for a long time, she ended up doing nothing to your face” Sally frowned and stole glances from Beauty.

“Well, I guess I just have to leave my life like this. Ugly Beauty” she replied as Sally drove into the compound.

She swiftly came down and ran into the mansion.
She grabbed her laptop and fell on the bed.

“Cooking tips..” she browsed the internet and started learning some things.

Sally stood by the door and smiled.
“Making her do the impossible” she thought.

Beauty has never cooked or plead with someone before.
But now, she is changing gradually.

Her rude character is fading away making Sally happy.

She returned to her room and slept off.
Beauty learned how to prepare so many dishes taking note of the ingredients.
“I’ll make her vegetables porridge tomorrow” she thought smiling to herself.
