“Excuse me... oh sorry! Excuse me coming through.” was all the people herd from the small woman carrying a stack of pink, purple, and blue pocka dotted boxes, which was over towering her body. “Excuse me. Oh! I’m so sorry...excuse me.” Isabella Black was on her way to her next gig across town, life was hard being a part time clown and a full time student at Salem U but it was the only way she was able to pay for her schooling. Her parents wanted to teach her the value of a dollar blah blah blah blah blah.....So here she was cutting cross Salem place to get to the next kiddy party.
Shawn Brady was also shopping at Salem place. He needed to pick up the cake for his little brother’s birthday party which was about to start in a few hours, he also needed to find a gift.... and fast! He had no idea how getting his brother a present could have slipped his mind but it did and now he was rushing through the crowd with the cake box in his hand in order to make it to the toy place in time. “Excuse me, so sorry. Excuse me!”
Belle quickly thought to speed up her walking, she wanted time to get ready and to get organized before the little tikes arrived. She needed a watch, that’s what she needed. She rushed herself this morning because her alarm clock didn’t go off and had forgot to put on her wrist watch, not that it would do her any good she could barely see what was in front of her. “Excuse me!!! Would happen to have the time?” she asked a young woman who was pushing her little daughter in a stroller.
The young lady was taken back by the appearance of the girl in front of her, but she took pity on her having a daughter so young she could tell that the parents had decided to show some disciplined to their daughter, it had happened to her. “Its about twenty to eleven.”
“Oh thank you so much!” She had time. She only needed to go a few more stores and it would be smooth sailing! She gave the woman a smile and was on her way. “Oh wait! Excuse me miss!”
“Yes?” she asked
“If you ever decide to through a party for your little girl and need some entertainment I’m you girl! Izzy the Clown! Here’s my card... ohh..” she realized that she couldn’t reach her pocket. “Oh would you mind.... yeah right in that pocket.” The lady reached in and pulled something out, and it wasn’t the cards in was a some sort of a pump and when she squeezed it water form the flower on her the clown hat squirted her in the face.
“Oh!!! Well I never!!” she gave her a stern look. “You little jokester!” she took her stroller and quickly sped off drenched in cold water.
Belle stood there shocked as hell, she must have told her the wrong pocket. Great job Belle, you could have had yourself a new client but nooooo... you had to go and blow it!
She continued her way out of the shopping area not paying much mind to the people, she was to busy thing about what just happened and how embarrassed she felt. She needed to get out of here. She started walking faster and before she knew it she herd some one tell her to watch where was going and fell to the floor. All her boxes flew everywhere, her magic equipment was scattered everywhere, her paint for face painting was spilled all over, and to top things off she landed on her woopy cushion and cause everyone who was already looking at her to put a face of even more dismay. “OK now I’m embarrassed.!” she started to pick her stuff up when she noticed that one of her boxes were moving. She picked it up and saw a man filled with cake frosting on his face and clothes. “Oh my god! Are you okay?” Belle quickly helped the man up.
“Well aside from the fact that I have my brother birthday cake all over me and that me new shirt is ruined. I think I’ll live.” He was surprisingly calm. Maybe it had to do with the fact that he was still in a shock or maybe it was that the cute little clown in front of him had tears rimming her eyes. She suddenly looked straight into his own pair Oh yeah it’s the clown!
“I’m so sorry, I’ve just been having a bad day... here let’s get some of that cake off. I’m Belle by the way.” She said and she reached into her shoulder pocket and pulled out a series of different colored handkerchiefs. When she finally managed to get all of them out she saw that the man was laughing at her.
“I’m Shawn....You really are a full fledged clown!” she giggled at his comment and handed him the rags. He cleaned his face and then his clothes.
He’s a stud muffin! Let me get a piece of that!..... Belle Black! You shouldn’t be thinking this now! You just ruined his cake and you have a party to go to. “I really should be going... again I’m so sorry about the cake... here I hope this is enough to cover it.” She handed him a twenty dollar bill.
“Oh I couldn’t take it! It was an accident but thank you, let me help you with this stuff.” They both cleaned up what they could and placed it back into the boxes . “Are you sure that you wont take the money?” she asked out last time.
“Nope! You’ve been through enough... I think saw that they had a second like the one I brought so it no big deal.... but you.. You look like you have a problem with your stuff.”
Belle nodded in agreement “I know and I don’t know what to do!” she felt so over whelmed, the last thing she wanted to do was to cancel and ruin someone’s birthday but it looked like she would have to.
“I think there’s a magic shop that just opened on the corner.. I don’t know if that’s all you’ll need but it could help.”
She thought for a moment... maybe just maybe she could pull it off. “Oh thank you so much!” ran over the to the 6 foot something Greek God of a man and have him a hug.
God this feels so good.. So right.... and I’m tingling all over
Wow he must work out! I’m getting so turned on that I fell the waves of.. Oh god.. I need to go!
They stayed like that more then people who just met should. Belle slowly pulled away. “Thank you again.” She whispered
“Your very welcome.” He didn’t want to let her go she felt so perfect against his body.
She reluctantly turned and made her way to the shop wishing and hoping that if fate and luck was on her side that maybe she might meet that beautiful man again.
One hour later Belle finally made it to the house. She rang the door bell and waited for someone to answer.
“Hi you must be Izzy. I’m Hope Brady.” said the woman at the door. She had shiny brown shoulder length hair, blue eyes that was filled with happiness and warmth, and from the looks of it a very beautiful woman in her time.
“Yes.. I’m so sorry that I’m late..... I ummm... had some problems on the way but everything is okay and I’m ready for the little children!”
“Please come inside.” Belle walked in the cozy house and smiled at all the decorations that were made for this very special birthday boy.
“You can just put your stuff down over here and get yourself together.”
Belle thanked her and started to unpack all her goodies. Thank god for that store, it was more then just a magic store is was freakin Clown Heaven! Everything she needed they had and more. “I got some pretty nice stuff... this is a high quality rubber chicken.” she pulled out her paints and balloons along with her magic coloring book and a few other things.
Hope was in the kitchen finishing up the little finger sandwiches for the party when her son came through the door. “What the heck happened to you?”
“Long story... but here’s the cake and here Zach’s gift.” he chuckled.
“I think you should go change before people start to come don’t you think?”
Shawn agreed and when through the living room to get to the stairs. He looked in the corner and saw a very familiar clown costume. “Belle?”
She turned around and saw him.... her beautiful man. “Shawn... hey!”
“You’re the clown for the party?”
“I guess so.”she giggled.
“I’ll be right back... don’t go anywhere.” Shawn rushed up stairs and jumped in the shower. When he came out he quickly dressed. He could hear all the of kids talking and having fun and he also herd some of him family members having a great old time. He came down the stairs and searched for his silly dressed clown sweetheart.
Across the room Belle let out a pent up breath. It wasn’t the kids that were causing her to feel so uneasy it was the big headed ful of himself jerk in front of her that wouldn’t shut up. She met Shawn’s eyes and pleaded for his help.
Shawn walked up to them and rolled his eyes at the person it ended up to be...
“Yeah... see how big my muscles are.... and look what happens when I flex them...”
“Yeah Phil.... I think your hair is a little messed up in the back.”
The man whipped around. “Are you serious?” he covered his hair with his hands and made his way to the mirror.
“Your welcome.” he picked up her hand and kissed it. “Belle I don’t know what it is about you, but I feel like your going to be a part of my life forever.”
Oh dear god.. Take me now you sexy sexy man! “I feel the same way.” The two got closer and closer, their lips just centimeters away when the children started to scream ‘Painting time!! Painting time!!!’
“Damn it “ he mumbled under this breath.
Belle then painted all the children’s faces. “Yeah Belle....can you paint the superman symbol on my arm since I’m so sexy and have big muscles.”
“Sure.” she said a little uneasy.
After she was down she dropped the brush in her little water bowl. She began to put her paint away when she herd a womanly scream.
“Philip are you okay?”
A woman in a business suite came up and said “Get away from him! Philly Willy what the matter with my baby boy?”
“It stings mama! It stings soooooo BAD!!!”
“What stings baby?”
“My eye.. Mama I got water in my eye!!!!!”
“Oh no!! Lets go home and take care of that.”
The two of them left the house and everyone start to chuckle. Shawn came up to Belle and kneeled before her. “You sure showed him!” The two of them laughed.. Belle then looked in his eyes. “I believe we were in the middle of something before...” She pulled him close to her and gently kissed his lips. They both broke apart, smiled, and went in for another kiss, this time it was more slower and more tender, sweet but passionate, and it was hit with a sprinkle of forever.
Up in the skies and old woman sat with her husband...
“Oh Tom. I told you they were perfect for eachother!!”
“Yes, yes you did darling and you were right.. They do make a wonderful couple.”
“Yes they do and it was all my doing!” she giggled and snuggled up to her husband. “I have a feeling that they are going to be forever. Their meant for eachother.”
“I think so too dear...forever like us.”
