A Providential Accident



What if the spotlight had really fallen on Terry?





Chapter 1
“I will come if you call”





Terrence Grandchester was realizing his dream. He had gotten the role of Romeo in “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare. He had just sent the invitation for candy with a one way ticket. He will be able to spend some time with her. He was wondering why he didn’t go to see her earlier… he could’ve done it, but he had said to himself, making her come to see him for the premiere of Romeo and Juliet and the sure success he was going to get, he’ll be able to take good care of her. Candy, that’s all he had in his mind, he was only thinking about her. But there was a dark cloud on his happiness… Susanna Marlowe… She had declared her flame to him and he was feeling uneasy in her presence… and he has also learned that she had sent Candy away when she came to look for him at the hotel in Chicago, when they went there on tour… What right did she have to do something like that? He should’ve gotten angry with her, but he was honest with her and she had run away saying she wouldn’t let anybody else have him… But who did she think she was? He loved Candy and he was going to be with Candy and Susanna Marlowe had nothing to do with his destiny… To each their destiny is his destiny was to be with Susanna Marlowe, he wouldn’t have been in love with her and not with Candy…

It was with great joy that he went to the rehearsal that day. He went to change and arrived on stage. There were technicians working on spotlights… Terry met Susanna’s eyes and he saw all the love she had for him. He looked away.

The rehearsal started and the ball scene when Romeo was looking at Juliet from afar… Terry was looking at Susanna but he was seeing Candy, his Juliet from the May festival. He started reciting the role, he was happy, he was passionate, imagining Candy instead of Susanna, had just made him ten times more talented. Candy was his muse, she was his inspiration, she was the reason he living, without her, life would be nothing to him… He had left college so she could stay in school, wishing her good luck and praying for her happiness. But after seeing her again in Chicago, she was running in the field and she was so beautiful in white, it was the most beautiful image he had ever seen… He understood that he had been living for her, so that she’s proud of him, so that he could take care of her, so they can spend the rest of their lives together…


He was so absorbed, that he didn’t pay attention when a noise was heard, a rope got loose and a big spotlight fell on stage when Terry was standing… Susanna saw it too late what was going to happen and she wasn’t fast enough… and she screamed:

- TERRY!!!! WATCH OUT!!!!

But it was too late… Terry was on the floor, bleeding; he was hurt at the head and he was bleeding abundantly.

- Quick! We have to take him to the hospital! Call an ambulance! Yelled Susanna

She ran to Terry and took his head and started caressing it.

- Everything is going to be fine, my love, you’re going to be all right, oh Terry, please, don’t leave me, I’m here, my darling… Where’s that ambulance!????


oOoOoOoOoOo



At the same moment, Candy, who was having tea with Karen Kleis in Florida, felt bad, all of a sudden…

“Candy!” She heard

“Terry!” she said to herself, what’s going on?”

She felt that something was wrong with the man she loved… On top of the insinuations Karen said on Terry and Susanna, she hated it.

- Karen, I don’t feel very, said Candy, I’m going to go to my room, is that’s ok with you…

- Of course! But you’ll see that I’m right! Terrence and Susanna are going to end up together

Candy pretended like she didn’t hear and she went to her room. She went to sit on her bed.

- Oh Terry, what’s going on and why am I feeling so bad? Just like that night I woke up calling your name, like I had heard your voice calling me… just like earlier… I have to go to New York to see you…

She kneeled to pray God.

- Please Lord; please protect Terry in everything he’s going at this moment. Forgive his sins, Lord Jesus and deliver him from evil…

She prayed for Terry for a long time, crying. She had a sleepless night thinking about Terry, praying and crying. At dawn, she got out of the villa and she went walking by the beach, looking at the sun rise.

“How beautiful! The sun rises on the good and the evil without discrimination… a new day arises that God had done, a new day; I have to go see Terry… I have a bad feeling, I feel like he’s in trouble.”

She looked at the sun change colours, rising in the sky illuminating the world like a big lamp.

“It’s a beautiful here, not like in Chicago or New York… I hope you’re fine, I have to talk to Professor Kleis… to tell him that I have to go back to Chicago today…”

Candy went back to the villa and she met Professor Kleis who was going to have breakfast.

- Good morning Candy

- Good morning, Professor Kleis, how are you this morning?

- I’m fine, thank you what about yourself?

- I’m fine. I would like, if it’s possible leave for Chicago today…

- You don’t want to stay longer and keep Karen company?

- No, unfortunately, I have other engagements. I’m leaving and I have to go see a very dear friend…

- Very well, I’m not going to hold you any longer…

- I’m going to take the first train for Chicago…

- So, hurry up and eat so you can leave, otherwise you’re going to miss your train…

Candy who wanted to leave right away to avoid Karen and her conversation about Susanna, she hate quickly to get to the train station as fast as possible.

Fortunately for her Karen was sleeping in and didn’t get out of her room until noon…

Candy was ready to go.

- Good bye Professor Kleis

- Good bye Candy, give this to Professor Leonard for me.

- All right. Good bye…

- Have a safe trip!

- Thank you!

Professor Kleis had ordered his driver to take Candy to the train station. Candy was eager to get to Chicago, so she could go to New York as soon as possible… Her dream kept haunting her…


oOoOoOoOoOo



Meanwhile in New York, at St. Jacob hospital, Terry was in a critical condition. He had spent the night, which was a very good sign. Susanna had spent the night by his side and the doctor were talking to Susanna and consulting her for the best treatment to give Terry.

- Miss Marlowe, according to the x-ray there’s no fracture of the skull, but the blow he got on his head was very severe and he still hasn’t regained consciousness… and if he remains unconscious longer….

- He’s going to be all right! Don’t be pessimistic! He’s going to be all right, you hear me?

- Yes, miss Marlowe

The doctor left, he didn’t want to hear the tantrum of this crazed woman who had been bullying them since she had arrived in the hospital. Didn’t Terrence Grandchester have a direct family member, than this fiancée who was pushing them around?


oOoOoOoOoOo



Robert Hathaway has left a message for Eleonor Baker to tell her that her son had had an accident. She had just come back from a long day of rehearsal, and she didn’t read the messages that night, feeling very tired, she ate a light meal and she went directly to bed.

She spent an agitated night full of diverse nightmares … She woke up with a sudden need to see her son…

“Terry! Oh my God! I have to see my son…! She said jumping out of bed; I have a very bad feeling after those horrible nightmares

She went to take a shower, she got dressed and she went to see Terry. When she arrived downstairs she saw the mail on a little table and all the messages she had received the night before. She saw Robert Hathaway’s message who was asking her to go to St. Jacob’s Hospital as fast as possible… Colours were drained from her face!

“Terry!” Said holding putting her hand on her heart.

She didn’t even thought about having breakfast, she put her beautiful white coat and she ordered her driver to take her to St. Jacob’s Hospital right away…


oOoOoOoOoOo



During her trip to Chicago, Candy was on hot coals. When she closed her eyes…

When she arrived in Chicago, she was still not feeling better… The feeling that Terry needed her was still there. She went directly to the hospital to see Professor Leonard to give him the papers Professor Kleis had given her for him.

- You did a good job, Miss Andrew; you’re now officially on vacations…

- Thank you very much Professor Leonard. Good bye.

- Good bye Miss Andrew, enjoy your vacations

- Thankyou

Candy stood up and left Professor Leonard’s office. She went to her apartment and she found Albert. He turned around to see who had just come in.

- Hello Mr. Albert, said Candy

- Candy! You’re back… you have a sad face

- I have a bad feeling about Terry…

- Well look at the table, there’s a surprise for you.

Candy approached the table, she found the mail and she saw a letter from Terry. She took it with shaking h and, her heart was jumping of joy.

- I’m going to go read it in my room, thank you Mr. Albert!

Candy went in her bedroom and she opened Terry’s letter, there was also an invitation for the premiere of “Romeo and Juliet” in Broadway, a one way train ticket for New York.

Dear Candy,

Maybe it’s a lot to ask, but if Albert is feeling better, would you be able to leave him alone for a little while? I really would like to see little Juliet from St. Paul Royal college…

Candy should’ve been happy, but something was wrong, she was sure of it. She had a bad feeling and she had to see Terry right away. She decided to go to New York right away. She came out of the room and she announced it to Albert.

- Mr. Albert, I’m leaving for New York…

- What? Now?

- Yes… Terry sent me a one way ticket…so I’m going to go right away, my suite case is packed and…

- Candy, what’s going on? Did Terry have bad news?

- No, but I have a bad feeling… that something is going on…

- You’re not still worried about his colleague Susanna Marlowe are you?

When she heard the name of the girl she considered as her rival at one point, Candy’s heart sank and she was more eager to see Terry…

- No, said Candy, but I’ll feel better when I get to New York and make sure Terry is alright.

- Candy? What if I come with you?

- What? But…

- You’re troubled; I can’t let you go to New York alone in that state. I’m going to look after you…

Candy looked at him and she thought about it for a minute. Having Albert’s support during the trip would be a good thing.

- All right Mr. Albert, I’ll need your support if need be… Thank you.

- You’re welcome. I’m going to go pack my stuff…

- I’m going to go say goodbye to my friends

- All right…

Candy put her coat on and she left the apartment to go see her friends. She was in town when she saw her gang in Alistair’s car.

- Candy! Said Annie

- Hi gang! Said Candy smiling

- Where are you going like that? Asked Archie

- In fact, I was looking for you…

- Well, here we are! Said Alistair smiling

- Why were you looking for us Candy? Asked Patricia

- Because I’m going to New York later on and I wanted to say good bye…

- Oh, said Annie, what about Mr. Albert?

- He’s coming with me…

- Ah, that’s good, the change is going to be good for the both of you, said Archie

- Yes, indeed, said Candy

- Good luck Candy, said Annie

- Come back to us fast, said Archie

- No, said Alistair, take advantage of your time with Terry

- Yes, said Patricia, have fun…

- Thank you, said Candy smiling

And she hugged them one by one and she went back to her place to get Albert to go to the train station.

The gang met Neil, Eliza and their mother.

- Hello cousins, said Eliza, where is that little orphan going like that?

- That’s none of your business, said Archie

- Well, next time you see her, tell her that we’re going to New York to see Terrence at Broadway for the premiere of “Romeo as Juliet”!

- Candy doesn’t care, said Alistair

- Yes, she does! Said Eliza, Terrence is going to be mine after the show! You’ll see!

She put her nose up and she left with her mother and her brother.

Alistair looked at her go. He was thinking about Candy, he has read the sadness in her eyes. He even had plans in his mind, he wanted to go to war, but something in Candy’s eyes had made him sad and he wanted to try to help her. Archibald looked at his brother.

- You’re thinking about something…what is it?

- Did you notice that Candy was sad?

- Yes, so what? Asked Archie

- Candy is going to see Terry, she should’ve been jumping of joy but she was sad as hell…

- That’s true, said Patricia, Candy should’ve singing of joy, because she’s finally going to see Terry… but she was king of gloomy…

- That’s true, said Archie, what do you want to do?

- I have an idea, said Alistair, what if we all go to New York for the premiere?

- We don’t have tickets…

- With our name, we’ll manage to get tickets without a problem, said Alistair

- Oh yes! Said Annie, let’s go see Terry on stage for the premiere of his big break; he’s our friend, isn’t he? And we could be with Candy too!

- Yes, that would be good! Said Patricia

- All right , said Archie, we’re going to make the arrangements for the trip

- I’m going to inform my parents, said Annie

- And we’re going to inform the great aunt! She’s not going to be happy! Said Alistair

So Candy’s friends were also going to New York…

Candy and Albert were at the train station waiting for the train for New York. Candy had sent a telegram to Terry to let him know she was on her way.


oOoOoOoOoOo




Eleonor Baker went to send a telegram to Terry’s father to tell him that his son had had a terrible accident. Then she went to the hospital to find Susanna Marlowe had taken charge of everything, like Terry was alone in the world, without any family. In fact, aside from Robert Hathaway, nobody knew that Terry was her son… She didn’t like Susanna much, since the first time she saw her. Eleonor walked to the doctor to ask him news about Terry. Susanna was not happy.

- Who are you? She asked

- I’m Eleonor Baker…

- Oh… you want news of your little protégé? Said Susanna dryly

- Terry is my son, Miss Marlowe!

- What?

- Yes! And how dare you take every decision concerning him?

- Because I’m his fiancée, said Susanna, Terrence and I are going to get married, ma’am

- Really? He hasn’t told me anything about that…

- He was probably waiting for the night of the premiere to tell you, said Susanna who has answers to every questions

Eleonor looked at Susanna and she turned to the doctor.

- Doctor, can we talk in your office?

- Of course Miss Baker, said the doctor, follow me

Eleonor walked away with the doctor. Susanna was upset; Eleonor Baker didn’t congratulate her on her “engagement” with Terry. She made a vow that nobody was going to come between her and the opportunity to be with Terry … No, nobody was going to come and ruin that.

Small World





Chapter 1
“Romeo…”






Candy White was having lunch with her friend Annie Brighton in a Chinese restaurant with a buffet.

- You want to come to the theatre with me?

- What day?

- Tonight… or tomorrow

- All right. Tomorrow is not possible, I volunteer at the community kitchen…

- You’re very generous with your time…

- I like helping people…

- That’s very good. But you also have to think about yourself. Ever since your divorce, you’re not living…

- Living? Or you mean fornicating?

- Candy…

- You know that’s not like me…

- True. You were a virgin when you got married! Incredible!

- I wanted my husband to be my first

- Well that bastard dropped you like a hot potato when he realised you couldn’t have children. You could’ve adopted

- He wanted to be related to the children by blood

- Good riddance, he was a bastard, I still wonder what you saw in him… ok enough about that bastard

- What are we going to see at the theatre?

- “Romeo and Juliet”

- Very romantic, a love story

- You have dreamy eyes… you’re thinking about someone

- No… it’s nothing

- Out with it!

- There’s this guy…

- Oh, a guy… where?

- A the community kitchen

- The community kitchen? Not a hobo, I hope

- No even if that was the case, I like him… he’s got blue-green eyes and long hair and he’s to die for…

- I’ve never seen you like that… have you talked to him?

- No…

- Why not?

- He looked like he kept to himself…

- Candy, that’s not like you… you look like you’re scared

- After my divorce, I don’t really have confidence in myself…

- You’re bastard of a husband really ran you down… Candy, you’re very beautiful, men are crazy about you…

- If you say so…

- Next time you see your Romeo, talk to him. You’ve got nothing to lose

- You’re right. I’ll talk to him, said Candy with dreamy eyes

- There’s the Candy I know and love! Full of life

Candy burst out laughing, she realy had crush on that stranger for the community kitchen. Annie burst out laughing too. Candy had to get over her disastrous marriage… They finished their meal and they went back to their occupations. Candy went back working with her father. She didn’t need money,b ut she liked being busy. Especially after her divorce, she need to changer her ideas. Annie went back to her place to spend time with her mother.

Candy was in her father’s office.

- Are you coming for dinner tonight sweetie?

- No, I’m going to see a play with Annie

- The theatre? Which play?

- “Romeo and Juliet?

- Very romantic

- Isn’t it?

- You’ve got a date?

- No, I’m going with Annie

- You haven’t changed orientation, have you?

- Daddy! It’s not because I spend time with Annie that I’ve changed orientation…

- I’m teasing you

- You’re going to have dinner alone?

- Like a big boy

- Daddy, you need company...

- At my age, I don’t have time to run after women…

- I’m sure there are some women running after you too

- Yes, but I’m not interested

- Oh daddy, you never forgot mom…

- You mom was unique

- I miss her too…

Her father didn’t reply. Candy approached him and she kissed him on the forehead. She went back to her place to get ready for the evening. Her father wished she was living with him at the manor, but Candy wanted to live alone. She was passed the age when her father would control everything she did and that’s what he was going to do.

She put on a green dress and did an up do with her blond hair. Annie came to pick her up on time. She was wearing a blue dress, and she also had a nice up do.

- Are you ready sweeit? Asked Annie

- “Oh Romeo, Romeo, where fort art thou Romeo?” Said Candy

- Let’s go Juliet, said Annie smiling

They went to the theatre in Annie’s car. There were a lot of people at the theatre. Most of them had already seen the play, but “Romeo and Juliet” was a classic, that everybody liked to see.

- I come for the actors, said a lady, I like to compare performances, tonight we’re going to have a Romeo I haven’t had the opportunity to see on stage yet…

Annie and Candy went to sit listening to them talking. The play started.

It was very nice. The actor playing Romeo was absolutely fabulous. Candy was completely under his charms. During the intermission, she went to stretch her legs with Annie.

- Are you ok Candy?

- Oh Annie, the actor playing Romeo?

- What about him?

- He’s my guy…

- What guy?

- The one from the community kitchen…

- Really? Small world…

- No kidding…

- Now, you’ll have a subject of conversation, Juliet

They went to powder their nose, then they went to buy some drinks. All the ladies were talking about the charm of Romeo, all the ladies wanted to be his Juliet… Annie and Candy bought red roses.

The play and the intensity of the emotions and Romeo and Juliet’s love, was felt very strong. At the end the ladies were in tears. Roses were thrown on stage and everybody stood up to give Romeo a standing ovation.

- BRAVO!!! BRAVO!!!

Candy was crying of joy and emotions.

- Juliet, I feel your love for Romeo just got stronger

- I know it’s stupid

- No, sweetie, you’re normal… you’re finally over your ex-hubby

Candy burst out laughing in the middle of her tears.
- You want to try and go see him in his dressing room?

- Are you out of your mind? As whom?

- He goes to the community kitchen, he must know you by sight

- No way!

- Coward!

- I’ll talk to him the next time I see him, not tonight… I’ve had enough emotions for one night.

- All right, let’s go have dinner

So they left the theatre to go and have dinner in a nice restaurant and they talked about Romeo.

oOoOoOoOoOo



Candy spent the following days working like in a dream. She couldn’t wait to go to the community kitchen to see her Romeo. She arrived at her place and changed her clothes. She put on a jeans and a green shirt. Her hair were tied up in a ponytail. She took her car and she went to the community kitchen. It was an activity she did to help the community and the needy. She was lucky to be coming from a rich family. She was making donations in food banks. She went to the community kitchen twice a week. She had noticed her Romeo for sometimes now. She had never talked to him, but she would smile at him and he would smile back at her. He didn’t talk much. But he was very eloquent as Romeo on stage. He had a natural talent. What was he doing in the community kitchen? He probably had a story…

They were almost done serving people. Candy had the basket with little buns of bread, she put on the tables. She had a last one, she was about to put on Romeo’s table.

- Good evening, said Candy smiling

Romeo lift is head and smiled at her.

- Good evening…

- Was it good?

- Very good, he said

- I wasn’t a good cook. I’ve learned a lot from here

- We learn something new every day.

- Indeed. I saw you the other night; you’re an excellent actor…

- I beg your pardon?

- You played Romeo on stage…

- You saw me?

- Yes…

- Oh…

He was a little ashamed, all of a sudden.

- You were excellent!

- Thank you… I did it just to pass time

- You should make it your career

- Tell that to your father. He’d rather I take care of family business…

- Oh… so that’s what you’re doing at the moment?

- Let’s just say, for the moment, I’m more Romeo than a business man…

- I’m sure you’ve got a lot of fans on stage… well yesterday, all the ladies were probably eating out of our hand after the play…

He smiled. They talked again for a while, then Candy went back to the kitchen to do the dishes. He followed her and wiped the dishes and put them in the cupboard. Then he helped her clean up and swipe the room. Candy was ecstatic.

- I’m going to get going, he said.

- Good bye Romeo, said Candy smiling

- Good bye, Miss Freckles…

Candy burst out laughing. Romeo left. Candy went back to her place on a cloud. She was singing in her head, she was happy.

oOoOoOoOoOo


Romeo went back to his place. He turned on the light when he got in his apartment. His phone rang and he answered.

- Terry?

- Archie!

- You just came from the community kitchen?

- Yes…

- I’m wondering why you go there. It’s not like you’re starving…

- My grandfather created it, I go there in his honour

- He created it for the poor, not for you…

- Well the moment I need money…

- That’s because you want to… I still got the money from the sale of your family’s company. You can buy another company or a theatre troupe if you want

- There is no way I’m buying a theatre troupe with the money of my family’s company…

- You can’t continue acting for free… you’ve got talent, go to Hollywood, there are talentless actors making millions of dollars…

- I’ve lost the company, it makes me mad… I’m sure I was set up…

- But you can’t prove it…

- Well, I was in a good mood and you’re calling me to ruin my evening

- In a good mood? Did you bang a girl?

- No…. but I could’ve if I had made a little effort

- Oh… do tell…

- She works at the community kitchen, she’s one of the volunteers…

- What stopped you?

- She saw me on stage last night playing Romeo…

- So…?

- She calls me “Romeo”

- Ah, you don’t want to be rude because she sees you as “Romeo”…

- You got it…

- How is she?

- She’s blond, green eyes and she has freckles on her nose…

- She must be cute…

- She’s beautiful you mean…

- Sweet dreams buddy…


oOoOoOoOoOo




At the same moment Candy was back at her house, talking to Annie.

- So Juliet? How was it with your Romeo?

- Well we talked…

- You talked about what?

- The theatre, Romeo, the weather, everything! Oh Annie I wanted to stay with him and talk all night. He’s even more charming when he talks!

- Wow! You should’ve taken him with you for a roll in the hay!

- The first night? Are you out of your mind?

- Sometimes I forget I’m talking to a virgin…

- Annie…

- You know everybody has sex, that’s normal…

- Maybe, but I was not going to spread my legs the first night…

- Well you can dream about it now…

- I’m going to go slowly… I don’t want to scare him.

- All right. Good luck… Juliet.

- Everything is going to be fine, I’m sure of it. We’re on the same wavelength,… it’s a small world…

Yes, it’s a small world. She was seeing her “Romeo” when she went to the community kitchen, not knowing that he might be the man of her life… A meeting by chance allowed her to engage in a conversation with Romeo. She was going to do everything to be his Juliet.

An unexpected feeling



Chapter 1
“It’s just a goodbye”



Life is sang, life is cried
It changes like colours
Life lights up, life turns off
With no grudge, nothing comes to nothing
Life is sang, life is danced
It changes like the moods…

Everybody has a purpose in life: some had a path all traced since birth, others don’t really know where they are going, others think they have their life all planed until they find themselves lost and all of a sudden on an unknown road, opened with lots of hurdles to jump…

Alistair Cornwell had always loved airplanes. He was dreaming of piloting airplanes ever since he was a little boy, that’s why after getting his high school diploma in England, he went to piloting school and also did some engineering studies when he went back to the United States. With his diploma in his pocket and thanks to his family’s relations, he became a pilot in major commercial airlines. He was engaged to Patricia O’Brien whom he met in school in England. He was a pilot, he had a job, so he was going to pick a date for his wedding with Patricia.

Patricia O’Brien was getting ready to go to dinner with her fiancé Alistair Cornwell. She was a little chubby and she wore glasses. She was wearing a beautiful red dress and had let her hair down on her shoulders. She put on a light make up on and some perfume Alistair had given to her for her birthday. She lived with her grand-mother Martha, whom she loved with all her heart.


- You’re very beautiful honey, said grandma

- Thank you grandma, she said smiling

- Have fun with your fiancé.

- Thank you grandma

The phone rang. She answered.

- Patty?

- Candy! Are you all right?

- Yes, Alistair is on his way

- Thank you. He forgot his cellphone again?

- As usual

- Well nothing out of the ordinary. How is it going?

- Yes, Anthony and I are going to have dinner with his father and the old hag, great!

- Whoa! Good luck! Said Patricia laughing

- Thanks, I’m going to need it! Anthony’s grandma could be as nice as yours?

- No luck there… that’s too bad indeed…

- Have a great evening sweetie

- Thanks, same to you!

Candy, Patricia’s best friend and Alistair’s cousin had had her heart broken. She was dating Terrence Grandchester, whom she had also met in school in England. They had found each other again in America, Terry was an actor in a theatre and Candy was going to nursing school. They were supposed to get married when there was an accident at the theatre in which Terry was saved by Susanna Marlowe, one of his colleagues, very in love with him, and who had lost her leg in the process. Terry was forced to do the honorable thing and marry that girls and take care of her. Candy thought she was going to die of grief. One day, she had the shock of her life; Anthony, her first love had come back from the dead!!! The great aunt Elroy was hiding thim to keep him far from Candy, whom she was calling a bad luck bird. Anthony had learn the breakup of Candy’s engagement to Terry, decided to go on a hunger strike until his grand-mother let him go to go see Candy. That day, Candy was down in the dumps, completely depressed, when Anthony showed up at her doorstep. She fainted and he caught her. He looked a lot like Albert, but Candy knew it was Anthony and not Albert. The couple got back together. Anthony mended Candy’s broken heart. They were now happily married.

Terrence Grandchester had married Susanna Marlowe, he had done his duty because he was a gentleman. His movie career had taken off with a blast, after the media was talking about the story of his life, his bad luck… The producer saw an opportunity to make money. Terrence Grandchester’s popularity, poor victim of circumstances, forced to break up with his fiancée to do the honorable thing, had went up to the roof, because he had behaved like the gentleman he was. But unfortunately, Susanna Marlowe contracted a deadly infection and she had died a little while after giving birth to little Sean Terrence Grandchester. In public, he was giving the picture of a happy man, but in reality, he was unhappy and was barely looking at his son. The nannies would take care of him. Learning that not only the flower boy, like he called him, was alive and kicking, but that he had married his Candy, had made him gone mad!!! Life was really unfair! Candy had married her first love while he had married a woman who was far from being the love of his life. Candy was the love of his life; they were in harmony, sexually, no other woman could satisfy him like her…

oOoOoOoOoOo


Patricia was at the restaurant with Alistair, they already had dinner, and he told her something.

- The Concorde? Said Patricia, but… your schedule had just doubled…

- It’s a supersonic plane… the trip is going to take two times less!

- Yes, but if your schedule is doubled, for me it doesn’t change anything

- Patricia, I want to make more hours on the supersonic, to have a better schedule, more flexible. My family helped me get this job, so I have to show them that I can work, that I’m not just a daddy’s boy, to whom they had given a job like a piece of Candy…

- Oh Alistair! You know that I don’t really like planes that much, I always pray when you leave… and now, you’ll be in the supersonic planes…

- It’s the plane with the less accident, you know…

- That doesn’t make me feel better! Tell me it never had accidents…

- Patty, you know that it’s impossible. The Titanic was built to be unsinkable and it sank on its maiden voyage… there are no guaranties in life…

- You couldn’t have found a job on land and be passionate about it?

- We’re safe nowhere honey… you know that…

- I love you and I don’t want to be separated from you all the time…

- Let me do those hours and I’ll have more time to spend with you after our wedding… that we will need to postpone…, he said with a little voice.

- What? Oh no! Again?!

- It’s the last time, I promise you. You can have your teacher’s license in the mean time and start working…

- But…

- Please Patricia, try to understand…

- Are you trying to understand me? I’ve been waiting for years for you to finish your engineering studies, piloting school… and now you’re making me wait again???

- I’m sorry Patty, really, it’s for our own good. Think about when we’re going to have kids.

- Yes, I’m thinking and I think I’ll feel better if you had a work on land and not in the air…

- Patricia…

- I know that it’s your passion my darling, but you have to think about me too… about us, we’re going to get married and we’re going to have a family, and I’d like the children that were going to have to see you more often, every day, for example.

- You knew from the start that I wanted to be a pilot and you agreed with me.

Patricia felt like she was being selfish. Alistair loved piloting, all you had to do is look into his eyes, how shinny they were when he talked about planes and piloting. But an accident could happen anytime… but a happy husband was also important.

- I’m going to miss you and when I’m going to see you, I’ll only be too happy to see you again, he said with a smile

Patricia blushed and smiled.

- I have the keys to the apartment downtown, he said

Patricia was living with her grandma Martha and Alistair lived at the manor with the rest of the family, so, the apartment downtown was perfect to have a little roll in the hay after a date… among other things.

So they went to have a last drink and then they went to the master bedroom where the bed was done, fortunately. They took their clothes off and gave into their passion. Alistair the family genius, a little absent minded sometimes, was a fabulous lover and passionate lover. He made sure Patty was satisfy, with the preliminary and she did the same thing… when they were ready, they climb together to the heights of ecstasy. When Alistair had to go to work, he was doubly passionate. They made love three times before he took her back home. They were in front of her door, kissing fierily.

- I’m going to miss you, said Patricia

- I’m going to miss you too.

- Come back to me fast.

- I’ll come back, don’t worry

- I love you

- I love you

They kissed again and again. Alistair left, he was living in the morning on the supersonic plane, a dream trip for him, a plane so fast… He felt like he was piloting a space ship.

oOoOoOoOoOo


"We are interrupting our program to bring you a special report, We just learned that the supersonic plane, coming from Paris, going to New York and Chicago, has disappeared from radars… they said to have no survivors…”

It was the morning Alistair was supposed to come back and Patricia was going to make him his favourite meal. Grandma Martha was in the living room looking at her show on televisions…

- Patricia! PATRICIA!!! Yelled Grandma Martha.

- Yes, Grandma? Said Patty coming all panicky, what’s going on?

- Patricia…

Grandma Martha face was decomposed looking at the television. Patricia looked at the television…

“Once again, the supersonic plane coming from Paris going to New York and Chicago has disappeared form radars… there are no survivors…”

- NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Patricia fainted. Her grandma picked her up and put her on the couch of the living room.

Patricia felt like she was waking up from a horrible nightmare in which she was unable to open her eyes. She finally opened her eyes and she found Candy and Annie by her side.

- Patty? Said Candy

- Are you ok? Asked Annie

- Candy, Annie, what are you doing here?

All of a sudden the memory came back to her…

- ALISTAIR!!!!NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- Calm down honey, said Candy

- Alistair, said Patty again

- I’m sorry Patty, said Annie crying

- NO! NO! He can’t be dead!! NO!!!!

- The plane exploded in the air, said Candy crying

- NO!!!!

- You have to strong Patricia, said grandma Martha, I know what you’re feeling

Her grandma took her in her arms. Patricia cried against her chest. She hugged Candy and Annie, one a the time

Patricia didn’t know how she survived the following days…

The whole Andrew family was devastated. They had funeral service without the body, it was going to take months to recover everybody’s body… the burial will happen after the recovery.


When everybody arrived, Patricia felt even worse because it had become concrete all of a sudden. Archibald would go see her often with Annie and Candy. They arrived together at the service.

Patricia had lost a lot of weight ever since she got the news, she barely ate. She was literally making herself sick.
The service gave Alistair all the honors, for Patricia it was horrible, she didn’t care. Her dear Alistair was gone for good.
Life was really not fair!

Terrence Grandchester had come incognito to assist to the service of his school friend. It was hurting him too much to see Candy with her husband, he tried to pretend he didn’t care. Patricia was with her family who were consoling her. He remembered Susanna’s funerals. None of his old friends had come. You have to say that he severed all ties with them after his break up with Candy… But he had to come for Alistair, even from afar, he was his friends…
Archie and Annie were married and in the family way. Candy and Anthony had a little girl name Rosemary. And there was no more Alistair and Patricia… nor Terry and Susanna…

The Last Hope




Chapter 1
“Before we say goodbye…”



The plane trip was too long. Candice White Andrew was coming back from a trip to Japan. She needed a change of ideas after her breakup with the man she loved, Terrence Grandchester, a rising star in Hollywood. When they broke up, he was the star of Shakespeare famous play “Romeo and Juliet”. Candy was so in love with him and he loved her like crazy too. They had met on a boat taking them both to England. They found themselves in the same boarding school for their biggest pleasure. They had gotten close and they had spent the most wonderful summer in Scotland. But back to school for the new year, didn’t start up great… Eliza Reagan, Candy’s cousin, who was also in love with Terry, had tried everything to get them into trouble, and she had succeeded. The result was: Terrence had left school and Candy too. She had followed him at the airport and she had missed him. So she took the first plane for Chicago. And despite Uncle William’s disappointment, who was invisible, by the way, she was able to finish her school year and get into med school. Terrence had found a job in a theatre in Broadway and his troupe came to Chicago for a play and that’s how they were able to see each other again… Candy was on call and she switch with another colleague at the last minute and she got there just in time and she watched the play from the third balcony… Terrence at looked in her direction, like he knew unconsciously that she was there… they had started writing each other and calling each other every day. They were making plans for the future… Candy was supposed to transfer herself to a hospital in New York. But the accident, at the theatre when Susanna Marlowe saved his life had changed everything… They had broke up and he had to marry Susanna Marlowe…

So Candy was coming back from a trip to Japan. The plane stopped at New Delhi where other passengers got in. The Indian capital, where the time change had 30 minutes more; New Delhi time was GMT+ 5 hours and a half. Candy found that fascinating. Another passenger came in last. The place next to Candy was empty and a passenger sat there. Candy was looking out the window and didn’t pay much attention. Her neighbour finished settling up and Candy felt all funny… he was wearing a hat and sun glasses… She would’ve know him anywhere…

- Terry?! She asked stunned

Terrence Grandchester was going back to America after shooting a movie in India. The private Jet he had rented had a mechanical problem and he didn’t want to wait, he had to get back to America in time for Thanksgiving. So he took a commercial flight, in first class of course and he was wearing sunglasses and a hat, a disguise to hide his celebrity…hearing a voice calling him by his short name, hearing her “voice” calling him, like in a dream, he couldn’t believe it. He turned around to look at her… he took off his glasses and his hat.

- Freckles???!!!

- How are you?

- As you can see, I’m all tanned…what about you? Where are you coming from?

- From Japan…

- Oh…

- I wanted a little change of scenery… and I meet you…

- Maybe destiny is trying to tell us something…

- Really? What?

- I don’t know… but I’m glad you’re sitting next to me, he said smiling

Candy looked at him and she smiled too… It had been so long since she had seen him…
The plane took off and they started talking. They talked about the past, and about the present too…

- So Dr. Freckles, where do you intend to work?

- To tell you the truth I’m with doctor without boarders… I go where they send me, but Japan, was a little vacation and I have to go back to Chicago for Thanksgiving… How is your fiancée?

- I really don’t want to talk about her… let’s not waste the little time we have together with unwanted subject of conversation… tell me about your patients…

Candy looked at him. He was right. Whey talk about difficult subjects? She told him about her patients, about the strangest cases, they talked about everything and nothing, avoiding talking about the principal subject of their break up: Susanna Marlowe.

- Terry, you’re getting married…

- I’m going to do what’s expected of me… that’s all, the honourable thing… but I’m convinced that there’s a reason for our meeting on this plane, totally by chance…

- It’s a coincidence…

- Really? I don’t believe in coincidences, everything happens for a reason… Look at our meeting, my mother rejected me so I took the boat to meet the love of my life …

- Terry…

- I love you Candy, I love you so much that my heart bleeds… I’m going crazy without you…That’s why I’m taking roles taking me on the other side of the world, so I won’t think about the present, I’m working day and night…

- And I took a job taking me on the other side of the world too, to try to forget you… but things are what they are…

- I know my love, he said, softly touching her cheek…

The plane was now flying over Romania where they were supposed to stop in a city called Timisoara for an hour. But the weather was very bad, there was a snow storm. The plane landed with difficulty… Candy and terry continued talking. An hour later, the pilot’s voice was heard…

- Ladies and gentlemen, this is your commander speaking. I’m sorry to tell you that the plane will not be able to take off as planned. We will have to spend the night here and leave tomorrow morning, when the weather clears up…

There were some whispers and mumbling of protest, but the passengers really had no choice.
Terry looked at her smiling.

- I told you there was a reason…

- A reason? A snow storm in a country where we don’t speak the language?

- That’s not important, as long as we spend time together… before we say goodbye…

- Like in that French son by Nana Mouskouri?

- “♪♪Faisons l’amour, avant de nous dire adieu…♪♪” (Let’s make love before we say goodbye…)

- Shut up Terry! Said Candy laughing

- Jeane Manson sang that, by the way…

- Really? I wonder why I thought it was Nana Mouskouri…

- Candy… don’t change the conversation… Nana Mouskouri sang: ♪♪Only love can make a memory…♪♪

- ♪♪ Only love can make a moment last…♪♪

- Love is not what’s missing between us… it would be stupid to let this unique opportunity pass us by… It will never going to come again… because you and I are going to respect our arrangement… but for the moment, they are giving us a piece of sugar, let’s take advantage…

- All right! Oh my God! What am I saying!? You know that I can’t resist you when you sing love songs to me…

- “♪♪Faisons l’amour, avant de nous dire adieu…♪♪” (Let’s make love before we say goodbye…)

Candy looked at him smiling. They were avoiding touching each other in public, Terry was a celebrity, he wasn’t going to put Candy in a compromising position.

They got out of the plane half an hour later to go to different hotels, where the passengers aere going to be sent for the night. Candy and Terry found themselves in the same room of course. It wasn’t a 5 star hotel, it was clean. They ordered room service because they wanted to be alone. Terry turned around and looked at Candy who was taking her shoes off.

- My feet are hurting! I wonder what I was thinking putting on those horrible shoes! I should’ve put my baskets on! They are much more comfortable!

Terry didn’t reply, he approached her and took her in his arms and started kissing her like there was no tomorrow… Candy had been waiting for that, since they had met on the plane, she kissed him back, passionately, they made love on the bed, on top of the covers… Then they went to take a shower together and they continued having fun under the shower… When they got out of the bathroom they found that room service was there and getting cold. They ate and then they went back to bed to make love all night long. They didn’t sleep at all. Candy was used to night shifts so she had no problem and with the jetlag… Terry was used to shooting movies in the middle of the night was also fine… They kissed a lot too, since they couldn’t do it in public…

- Don’t leave me…, said Terry

- Terry you know you have to do your duty…

- I know, but being with you is the most beautiful thing… …♪♪Ne me quitte pas…♪♪ (Don’t leave me…)

- Oh Terry, I don’t want to leave you either…

- I know, things are what they are…

- You’re very romantic, singing songs to me like that… what a difference from that snotty nosed kid from the boat…

- I was a real bastard, wasn’t I? Seeing you again at school was a dream come true for me… because I couldn’t stop thinking about you…

- You had a weird way to show it…

- I thought I had my whole life in front of me to show you my love… I thought we’ll have the time to grow up and love each other freely…

- I don’t regret being with you … after Anthony… I was afraid something might happen to you, that you’d die like Anthony… I heard when your boyfriend dies on you, you’re going to spend the rest of your life burying the men you love…

- Candy…

- Susanna saved you from a certain death Terry… I’m forever grateful to her for that

- Oh Candy!!!
He took he in his arms to kiss her fierily…
When they took the plane back, they were talking and smiling. They didn’t want to be sad. They had an interlude and they had taken advantage of it to the maximum… But during the night on the plane, that was taking them back to America…

- I want to kiss you Freckles…

- People are sleeping

- If I wasn’t officially engaged… I can’t risk it…

- All right, we can go to the washroom…

- I’ll follow you in two minutes…

So they found themselves in the plane’s washroom in First Class, kissing for a long while…
When the plane got to New York, Candy was crying.

- Goodbye my love…, she said

- Goodbye my heart…, he said

- It still hurts …

- I know…

- I’m happy to have met you… I love you Terry

- I love you Candy


Terrence had to call upon all the forces of the universe, to get out of that plane an leave Candy behind. He went on to do his duty.

oOoOoOoOoOo



Terrence Grandchester had done his duty, he did what was expected of him. He was a gentleman and he proved it. Marry a woman he didn’t love only for duty, like his father. Like they say, like father, like son… He had sworn he wouldn’t do what his father did, but circumstances had decided differently…

Being a gentleman and do his duty, the honourable thing, had a very bitter taste at the end of the day…

In that bitterness, there was a least a little taste of sugar in the person of his daughter, little Nelly. She was the only ray of sunshine in this entire fiasco and Terrence had put all his love on her, the love he couldn’t give her mother, all his hope. She encouraged him to live and he found life was still beautiful even if he wasn’t with Candy. His career was doing fine, he even won an Oscar, which he dedicated to his daughter, all the awards he won, he dedicated them to his daughter, she was the apple of his eyes, but a few years later, he was struck by bad luck once again… Little Nelly, got sick, a rare disease, a very rare form of leukemia with no hope of remission and little Nelly died in her father’s arms one night at the hospital… Terry died with his daughter… His relationship with his wife was nonexistent and it completely disappeared. He let go of himself and refused all the work that was offered to him. His wife tried to get him some help, but he didn’t want to hear it. He was wondering in parks like a homeless guy and wouldn’t go back to his place. His mother tried to get him some help too, but her son was a stubborn man. She decided to take care of his business, because he at least gave her power of attorney. So she let him be. He had to get out of that state on his own, she was hoping he would wake up one day and take his life back.
Terrence Grandchester, the former raising star of Broadway, Hollywood’s golden boy was now a wanderer, with a beard, dirty walking in Central Park with other homeless people. Life wasn’t nice to him…So he decided to abandon everything…
Susanna Marlowe, very ashamed by her husband’s situation, had asked Terry for a divorce when he rarely came home, so he signed the papers. He would curse Susanna for entering in his life, she had ruined everything… He was punished for doing the honourable thing… They had taken his little angel from him to punish him and ruin his life… That’s what he had in his mind and nothing and nobody was able to help him…

Susanna was saying that Terrence and her mutually agreed to separate after the death of their daughter, citing Hollywood’s eternal culprit, irreconcilable differences…Terry had refused to share his grief with her, he had pushed her away brutally, yet she was as devastated as he was, she was her daughter too. She understood that day that it was over between them. What kept Terry near her was their daughter because he wanted a family for his little girl, with a mummy and daddy and he would act around her, after all, they were both very talented actors. Little Nelly didn’t suspect anything. She died happy to have had a mummy and a daddy with her in the room…

Life was sometimes just one big stage scene where we are all actors… He had had the lead role for a while, but now, he was just a simple walk on actor, nobody knew his name because he wasn’t even on the casting list…

2 Sep 2016


The memory of the heart:
The vow





Chapter 1
“The accident”






The young couple was coming out of the movie holding hands. They were walking to the underground parking lot.

- The movie was great, said the woman

- If you like that kind of romantic story, yes…

- You’d never admit liking this kind of movie…

- I do like it; otherwise, I wouldn’t have come with you…

- Would you admit it in front of your buddies?

- Why not?

- You’re not afraid of appearing weak?

- Weak because I love my wife? He said smiling.

They got in together in their car. They were going back home. It was like a routine for them, on Saturday nights, it was their movie night, then they would go back home and order a pizza, eat ice cream for dessert or gelato, depending on their cravings and then they would go to bed and make love until morning. Another couple would’ve got tired of it, but not them, they never got tired of each other. They still looked like a newlywed couple…

The car stopped at a red light. He looked at her with love.

- I love you my darling, he said

- I love you more, she said

- Let’s start trying for a baby tonight?

- Are you sure? She asked

- Yes, I’m ready to make babies with you…

- All right, she said smiling

He unbuckled his seatbelt and leaned towards her to kiss her on the lips. He sat back up and he wanted to buckle his seatbelt, when a truck arrived and hit the car violently in the back, the shock was so strong the car rolled and when to hit a pole and the man who, didn’t have time to fasten his seatbelt, was projected out of the car by the front window, breaking it with his head…

At the hospital, the woman opened her eyes. She was lying on a bed. She was trying to get up.

- Easy, said the nurse

- Where am I?

- You were in an accident, ma’am

- An accident…

It was the black whole. Then everything came back to her…

- My husband… where is my husband?

- Calm down ma’am

- I have to see him! She said trying to get up once again

- Your husband…

- Where is he? I have to see him! I’m begging you…

- I’m going to go get the doctor, said the nurse

The nurse got out and she came back a moment later with a doctor.

- Mrs. Grandchester?

- Yes?

- That’s your name?

- Yes, where is my husband? Is he all right?

- You have to calm down first

- Why don’t you want to tell me anything? He’s dead, isn’t he? Tell me! Is my husband dead?

- Mrs. Grandchester, calm down… your husband is alive, he’s in a coma…

- In a coma? She said, half worried, half relieved.

- Yes, we have to wait for him to wake up. According to the paramedics, his head hit the windshield…

- Do you do a scan on him?

- Yes, his brain is swollen, so we’re keeping him in an induced coma, until the swollen ends…

- How long is it going to take?

- A few weeks…

- Oh my God! She said crying. I want to see him.

- Of course…

They finally took him to see her husband. He was asleep in his room. He looked so vulnerable… her dear husband…

She remembered their first meeting…

She in New York in a visit, she was in New York to celebrate the new year on the boat she was on its annual cruise, 3 hours on New Year’s Eve. She wanted to celebrate the New Year in a special way. She hadn’t taken her vacations in so long. She was with friends and they were having great time. At one point Candy was on the deck of the boat, that’s where she saw him. He was looking at the waves and he didn’t seem to be having fun at all. She approached him.
- Are you all right?

He turned around to look at her.

- What? I'm bursting of joy? You don’t see that?

- Oh yeah it’s so obvious, I feel l like crying of joy…

He looked at her smiling

- I like your sense of humour, he said

- I managed to make you smile

- That’s your mission to cheer people up?

- Well, it’s my mission today anyway

- I just left everything, my family, my fiancée, my job…

- Oh… why?

- I was suffocating, I couldn’t take it anymore… I needed to breathe, I needed some air

- What about now? Are you able to breathe

- Yes, ever since you’ve appeared? Where do you come from?

- From Chicago… I’m here on vacation to celebrate the New Year in New York… with my colleagues…

- Can I keep you company?

- Of course…

- My name is Terrence Grandchester, you can call me Terry, he said smiling

- Candice White, you can call me Candy, she replied smiling

And they literally never separated after that… they were together at midnight.

- You know what this means? Right? He asked

- No…

- It means you’re never going to leave me. We’re made for each other until the end of times

- Really? My work is in Chicago

- You can find a job here…

- You’ve known me for what? 10 minutes?

- But I knew from the moment I saw you that you were the love of my life…

- You’ll have to convince me…

- I’ve got the rest of my life to do it…

At midnight, he had kissed her on the lips and she let him do it in the joy of the moment. They spent a very good time together and on the night before she was going to leave… they were at his place…

- Stay with me…

- What for?

- What for? To live with me?

- In sin? That’s what you’re offering me? Living together?

- Where are my manners… if I’m asking you to stay with me, I want to offer you the wedding of your dreams, if you tell me what it is….

- Really? Even if it’s absolutely crazy?

- Try me….

- I’d like to get married on the torch of the Statue of Liberty…

- Wow, you’ve got high standards, literally…

They burst out laughing.

- Candice White, will you marry me?

- I got to be crazy, but yes Terry! I want to marry you!

The formalities were done and they went to Ellis Island, and they went up the torch of the Statue of Liberty. Their friends went with them and they taped the ceremony. Candy said her vows…

- I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with love, to have the patience love require, to speak when words are necessary and to share the silence when they’re not and to live in the warmth of your heart and always call it home. I love you.

Terry looked at her with love.

- You wrote your vows on a restaurant menu?

- Yes, she said taking the menu out, why?

He smiled and he got the same menu from his pocket… She smiled back to him. They were made for each other.

- I vow to love you very much, in every way that matters, now and forever. I promise to never forget what I feel for you, this kind of love happen once in a lifetime. I love you…

They kissed passionately.

They were living in Terry’s modest apartment. He was trying to make it as a writer. She had found a job in New York, as a nurse. When she worked nightshifts, he would spend his time writing… when she was there; he was unable to write…

- Am I bothering you, my love?

- I can’t write a word!

- Wait, I’m coming hug you…

She approached him and kissed him on the neck…He turned around and pulled her towards him and kissed her… they were making love on the carpet…

- That’s how you inspire me?

- Yes, it’s not working?

- Yes, it’s working, he said standing up

He went back to his chair to write pages and pages…

- I love you, you’re my muse… thank you

- You’re welcome, even if I feel like you dropped be like a hot potato…

- Forgive me my love… but ideas were fusing in my head…


She came back to reality and she was looking at him sleeping. She was crying.

She put back his wedding ring on his finger. She was by his bedside night and day. She didn’t want to go back to work, especially in another hospital. She took a lot of days off to be by her husband’s side.

The day her husband opened his eyes, it was a day like any other, she was at his bedside. The doctors had told her they had stopped the induced coma and that he was supposed to wake up at any moment.

It was foggy, his head was heavy. His eye lids were very heavy. What was going on? He had to make an effort and open his eyes. Come on a little more… he was almost there. One more push… There!!! He had opened his eyes! Where the heck was her? Who were all those people?

- Terrence, said a man, you’re alright. You were in a car accident. You’ve hurt yourself in the head...

- I have a head ache, said Terry

- That’s normal, said the doctor, I’m going to give you something for the pain

- Terry, said the voice of a woman next to the doctor, are you all right?

He looked at her like she had just fallen from the sky.

- Yes, he said.

- Do you know who I am?

- You’re my nurse?

Candy’s heart broke… She went to sit by his side.

- No Terry, I’m your wife.

- My what? He said surprised

- Your wife…

- Is this a joke? Is there a candid camera somewhere?

Candy was shocked, she wanted to take his hand and he pulled it away… she stood up hurt and she left the room. The doctor followed her.

- You said he was all right

- Listen, the brain is not like a broken bone; it’s very unpredictable after a shock like that, it’s kind of normal there’s some memory loss…

- He took me for his nurse, when I’m his wife!

- Don’t get upset…

She walked away to get some air outside.
