? Chapter Three?
Sally ran to Beauty and helped her up. Beauty was devasted, she felt like everything happening was nothing but a dream. A nightmare!
“No, no. This must be a dream!” She yelled and stood up. She roamed round the room.
“Beauty please calm down” Sally said softly, trying not to add to her wounds. She was also confused about how her face became like this.
“Sally, call the doctor! And my mom! Quick!” She yelled.
She went to the mirror and tried to pop the pimples but they were to strong.
She ran to the bathroom and bath with hot water. But there was no difference.
She sat on the bed with her towel, hugging her knees and crying softly.
“Why does this have to happen to me now? Where did it even come from?” She asked herself.
Suddenly, the door flung open. Mrs Jones ran into the room stretching her hands to hug her daughter.
She finally got to the bed and hugged Beauty.
“What the hell happened to your face?” She asked as she sat close to her.
Beauty started crying.
“I don’t know mom, I just woke up and the next thing. All these fucking stuff on my face!” She said sobbing.
“Oh Beauty, don’t be a cry baby. We’ll sort things out trust me. I have a friend in Spain. She is a doctor and she deals with skin..”
“Well, let’s go now. I can’t remain like this. Other models are so gonna mock me mom and I have a big event soon”
Before her mother could say anything, Sally entered the room with her doctor.
“Holy shit!” The doctor murmured as he walked towards Beauty.
She felt bad. She didn’t want anyone’s pity and she doesn’t want to be mocked by anyone especially her younger colleagues in the modelling industry.
They’ve made Beauty their number one enemy just because they aren’t as beautiful as she is.
Now, what’s next?
The doctor checked Beauty’s face and kept on shaking his head like something was wrong.
“I can’t figure out what happen. It looks strange and weird because the pimples are very big and strong. They can’t be pooped”
Mrs Jones stared at Sally.
“Pack her bags, we are leaving for Spain tonight. I can’t let my daughter’s face remain like this and do nothing” she said and swiftly stand up.
“I’m very sorry. But to me, it looks impossible”
“Thank you doctor. You can leave now” she angrily pointed at the door.
The doctor nodded and left the room.
Sally went to Beauty’s wardrobe and packed her things.
She kept on crying non-stop.
“What do I do now mom? I’m supposed to go sign the form for the nomination and if I don’t go, I’ll be disqualified”
“Do you want that or your beauty?”
“I want both!” She yelled and continued crying.
“Okay, I have an idea. Get dressed, I’ll take you there myself” her mother said.
Beauty nodded and went to wear something warm.
She didn’t understand how she got her skin to be normal and her face weird and ugly.
She wore a large scarf all over her head and a nose mask.
She didn’t forget the large sunglasses.
“Do you have to dress like this?” Her mom asked beauty as she came out from her closet.
“Let’s go mom. I’ll be back Sally!”
She said and left the room.
Her mom ran after her and got into the car.
“The head office!”
The driver nodded and hit the road.
Mrs Jones brought out her phone and booked two tickets online.
“Is Sally going with us?”
“No mom, she should stay back here and watch things for me” Beauty replied staring at her photos. She remembered when she was still beautiful.
She went online and saw the news about her being selected.
She don’t want that to be ruined.
“I just want the king of model industry to notice me and accept me into his company. I’m sure his wife and children will be proud to have such an hard-working man in their family” she thought as hot tears ran down her cheek.
After an hour, they got to the head office.
The driver pulled over, Beauty wind down the glass and stretched her head outside she stared the modelling building. Very huge and beautiful!
This was the company she wished to be signed with. Only high class, popular and experience models sign here.
This was were Mr Dylan really stays. He owns this building and many more.
“What next mom?” She asked.
“Just wait. I need to call someone”
“Hey, we are outside already. I told you my daughter has a cold. She can’t get in”
“Please, try and do something. Fine, I’ll wait outside”
Mrs Jones disconnected the call and slipped the phone into her bag.
“He will be here any minute with the papers”
“Thanks Mom!” She said and hugged her mother.
“You should cover your face very well and not allow him see you”
As Beauty adjusted her scarf, it flew out of the car through the window.
She stared round and didn’t see anyone.
She quickly ran after it as it kept on flying towards the entrance of the building.
She finally grabbed it but she heard some laughter behind her.
She swiftly turned and saw some ladies staring at her.
“Isn’t that Beauty?” One of them gasped.
“What happened to your face? You look so.. Ugly”
They bursted into laughter.
Beauty ignored them and wrapped the scarf round her head.
“Come in already!” She heard her mom’s voice and went to the car.
The ladies continued laughing as they entered into the building.
“Wait till I tell everyone one that Beauty is not longer beautiful”
The man ran out and handed the paper to them in the car.
Beauty quickly signed and handed it over to the man.
“Get well soon miss Beauty!” He said and ran back into the building.
“Let’s go mom. I really need to get my face fixed” she said as she lowered her gaze.
“Okay. At least you are lucky that the competition will take place in two months time”
“Let’s go back home!” She yelled at the driver.
He quickly started the engine and drove off.
Mrs Jones knew how her daughter was feeling. She didn’t want to bother her so she decided to keep mute.
They drove into the compound. Beauty slowly alighted from the car and walked into the mansion.
She needed her beauty back, she doesn’t care what she does to get it but she needed it at all cost.
Sally gave her a glass of juice but she ignored it and walked up the stairs heading to her room.
“Once it’s time to leave, call me. I’m in my room” she said and left.
She got to her room and threw herself on the bed. She burst into hot tears screaming into her pillow.
Her phone dinged, she picked it up and stared at the latest news.
“Beauty Turned Ugly!!”
She read the comments and saw that no one supported the news except her enemies and frenemies.
She saw the anger reaction on the post and smiled weirdly.
They needed proof to see that she was ugly.
Beauty threw her phone on the bed and cry herself to sleep.
Few hours later, she was on the way to the airport. Dressed as a thief!
She didn’t want anyone see her face or even have a glimpse.
She came down from the car and walked towards the airport. She felt weird and scared.
Her mom walked behind her carrying her luggage.
Immediately she stepped her feet into the airport, people started to notice her.
She increased her pace and waited in line for her ticket.
After she got it, she immediately went into the plane and sat beside the window still wearing her huge glasses.
Her mom sitting beside her.
“Beauty, just relax. I’m sure Sara can do something to your face and you will be beautiful again”
Beauty stared at her mom and smiled.
“What’s the time mom?”
“It’s almost 8pm. The plane will take off soon” she replied.
“Good, I’ll take a quick nap now” she replied and rested her head on the seat in front of her.
Her mom nodded and asked one of the hostess to switch off lights.
Beauty slept throughout the whole journey.
It was a 10 hours journey.
“Beauty, it’s time to get down already. We have landed” Mrs Jones as she gently woke Beauty up.
Beauty slowly raised her head and covered her face.
They alighted from the plane and went to board a cab to Sara’s hospital.
She was happy that nobody noticed her.
“This is strange. I’ve never seen anything like it” Sara said as she finished inspecting Beauty’s face.
Beauty frowned and stared at her mother.
“So, there’s nothing we can do”
Mrs Jones asked her friend.
Sara shook her head in reply.
“For the moment, I can give you a cream that you can use. Well, that’s if I works”
Beauty covered her face with her palm and started crying.
“It’s okay my dear, everything will be fine”
“Nothing is fine! My whole life, my career. Everything is ruined!” She yelled at Sara.
Sara sighed and turned her neck to face Mrs Jones.
“I’ll go get the cream”
“Beauty, you need to calm down. Don’t pour out your anger in anyone you see”
She didn’t reply, she turned her gaze away from her mother.
That morning, they flew back into the country.
Beauty cried throughout the whole journey. The news of her being ugly spread round the net like wildfire.
Some secretly took pictures of her at the airport. They added a caption.
“This seems like our beautiful Beauty. Why did she cover her face?”
“Beauty covered her face at the airport. Seems the rumour was true after all. Beautiful Beauty turned ugly”
Beauty burst into tear when she saw the news.
“My life is ruined!!!!” She yelled and fell on the bed.
Poor Beauty ?
