Part 41

As usual, Ellie was faultless; she put all other thoughts out of her mind as soon as it was her turn to sing. Her performance of Skunk Anansie’s song ‘Weak’ was effortless and powerful, and Ellie hoped her father was pleased with how she’d done it.
The shock of the evening had been the last few moments.
The lowest scoring acts that evening were Denise, girl group ‘Lipgloss’ and Cindy Anne…In a shock decision to all, Denise and Lipgloss were voted out by the public phone in, leaving a very smug Cindy Anne to continue in the competition.
Even Cherise the presenter could not hide her amazement..Despite being the weakest singer and not trying too hard to soften her hard persona, Cindy Anne was saved every week thus far in the contest.
Denise was gracious in defeat, possibly due to having work in theatre lined up already by her agent; the girls in Lipgloss were heartbroken and left the stage clinging to one another sobbing.



Sam was troubled, seeing so many much more talented acts voted out while Cindy remained had made her nervous for Ellie for a couple weeks …Back at the hotel; Sam silently followed Cindy Anne as she went up stairs to the upstairs lobby.
Instead of going into her usual suite Cindy Anne crept down the corridor to the luxury rooms that the judges occupied.



Sam gritted her teeth and stealthily followed..Cindy Anne hadn’t closed the door properly; she was in some hurry to get in there,..Sam peeped through a tiny crack in the door and stifled a gasp as she saw what was happening.



“That was a little too close tonight Pookie, I thought you said I had nothing to worry
about"
She spoke in a baby voice, pouting at Ronny..



”You have nothing to worry about Babycakes” He assured her…”Now come here”
Cindy Anne sighed heavily, “Hmm I don’t know if you deserve me …I still am a bit worried about De’Vill, she can’t win surely…I mean she’s so nasty to me Pookie…”



Cindy bit her lip and started to sniff..
Ronny grinned at her

”Oh anyone who’s mean to my Babycakes will pay the price you’ll see….why don’t we have a little fun to cheer us up?”



He leaned over to Cindy and she forced a smile…”Oh you are naughty…but that’s why I wuv you …you’re so good to me “



“Honey, the phone in doesn’t matter; you know I have my people making sure you always do great in the polls…don’t matter who votes for who…my Babycakes will win, no question”
Cindy Anne squealed in delight and pounced on a flushed looking Ronny..”Aw I knew you wouldn’t let me down”.



Sam forced back her gag reflex and held her mobile steady as the whole scene was captured on video in the tiny screen, she was glad she’d charged it up earlier.



Sam allowed herself a smile as she slipped the phone safely into her pocket; it was time for some revelations.

Part 42

The morning after Star Factors ‘Rock’ theme night, Red was in high spirits, whatever nonsense had been written about Ellie would not damage her chances after the performance she’d given the night before. He had already been on to his lawyers regarding the ridiculous libel Jess had inexplicably blabbed to the gutter press. Noush was in the living room watching the breakfast show ‘Sunrise’ enjoying a nice veg out when the announcer mentioned ‘Star Factor’
“Hey Dad, come watch this, it’s about the contest”



Red joined his younger daughter on the sofa as the presenters announced the next segment of their show.



Lauren, the lead female presenter, spoke first;

“Welcome back and we’d like to now say Hello to our guest this morning …Jessica…Now if you’ve been glued to the TV every Saturday night these past few months like we have, you may well recognise Jessica’s beautiful and talented daughter Ellie De’Vill…Hi Jessica..lovely to have you with us this morning”



Red couldn’t believe his eyes…Noush gasped
“Oh god Dad!!! What an earth is she doing???”



Jessica sat cool as a cucumber with the hosts Lauren and Rory…
“Oh Thank you both , nice of you to have me on here” She said sweetly.
“So tell us Jessica, what’s it like to have a rising star as your daughter?”
Rory leant towards her smiling politely.



“Well I’m proud of her of course…In so far as I admire her talent…however I feel she is embarrassing herself by being involved with a tacky reality show” Jessica exclaimed..



“Really? There have been some amazingly successful artists coming out of ‘Star Factor’ Ellie always comes across as a very dedicated young woman” Lauren said. Somewhat taken aback by Jessica’s attitude.



“Had I been able to raise her in my way this regrettable attention seeking would never have happened…I did not have the heart to separate her from her half siblings and her father…he was very liberal with her unfortunately.”

Lauren and Rory exchanged glances… “Sooo….how do you think Ellie will cope with life in the spotlight if she wins…she certainly seems to be a popular contestant” Lauren went on



Red and Noush recoiled in shock at what they were hearing
“How can she do this to Ellie Dad? Is she joking?? “
Noush wailed



“I don’t know sweetheart…but she will pay for this..” Red muttered
The interview dragged on….

“I don’t think I can allow my daughter to end up like so many of these ghastly young so-called celebrities who end up in the tabloids displaying their private parts, drunk and falling out of mini cabs” Jessica shuddered…..



Rory and Lauren seemed shocked too… “But isn’t it so that you have been to various newspapers and given them details about Ellie’s alleged wild past?? Is that really acceptable from her own mother?”

Jessica raised her eyebrows.. “The problem with young people today is they are not responsible…not accountable for their rash actions and bad judgements…..I offered the best lifestyle to that girl..paid for her private education and she didn’t even come to see me when I was in the throes of a terribly abusive relationship….”



“I see…so what do you hope to achieve by coming here this morning?” Asked Lauren, looking decidedly uncomfortable.

“I hope that at best Ellie will let me back into her life and allow myself and my husband Laurence to become the parents she always should have had…to help steer her career to a more respectable classical route and of course help her manage her success…..we don’t want her blowing all her earnings on drugs and alcohol and burning herself out…”




Lauren and Rory wrapped up the interview gratefully and Red turned off the TV.

“What the hell???” gasped Red…..
“Dad you should go to her….we’ll be ok”
Noush exclaimed
“Lord knows I wish I could sweetheart…..you and Rhys have school though”



“Look, why don’t you call Molly? She can keep an eye on us…I mean she offered to help any way she could when the papers printed all that stuff “
“I don’t know love, she has her hands full already with her brother and sister your age …”

“Maybe if you can hold off going up till Saturday…none of us will have school…please just ask her Dad..”

Red sighed, he checked in with Ellie first then popped across to the little white house opposite.



Molly jumped as she let Red in…he was charming as ever, smiling and apologising for disturbing them…although he did look very upset as well…her palms always sweated madly whenever he was near her..

“Molly, I am so sorry but I wasn’t sure what else to do…I need to go up and see Ellie this weekend for the show….just seen her mother on television spouting even more trash about her…I was wondering if there was any way you could look out for Rhys and Noush…I am so sorry to have to ask this”

Red looked like he was about to burst into tears as his crystalline green eyes looked right into hers…



Molly wanted to hug him…but Molly just never managed to do things like that..so she kept rigid…”Um…of of.c course…anything at all to help….Jake and Louise get on great with the twins…uh….I can get them dinner and you know…I can do whatever you want…” Molly clammed up, going a lovely puce colour…




Red was too distraught to notice Molly’s embarrassment, but her adoptive siblings grinned at the faux pas.



“I so so appreciate your help Molly, you’re a true friend” Red said earnestly.
Molly couldn’t string much of a sentence together in his presence, normally she was a chatterbox but with him standing so close she daren’t risk saying else silly…He squeezed her hands warmly and said his goodbyes, leaving Molly practically hyperventilating.

Later on Molly sat with Jake and Louise chatting and gazing at the TV.

“It was nice of you to help him out” Jake said, “Got to be worth a dinner date right?” Jake grinned as he spoke..The pair of them were trying to get her to ask Red out ever since she’d admitted she found him attractive.



“Jake don’t start that again…it’s not exactly likely” Molly moaned, she got jittery just thinking about it.




“Come on Moll, you have to put yourself out there…you took care of all of us for a long time now…helping Mum and Dad, caring for both of them when they were ill….what are you going to do when we go to college? And you know my birth Mom’s family are still asking if I want to go stay with them for a while..”

Molly sighed…”Jake, You don’t have to put anything on hold for me..I’ll be fine…don’t worry”



“I know, but you really deserve some fun times…and I know you have the hots for him!” Jake went back to watching the TV smirking…

“I can help you pick out some nice clothes..and some good make up when you do go out with him…Sam taught me loads when she was doing beauty therapy at college.” Louise gushed…



“I love you both but you’re doing my head in!!! Red isn’t interested in me…not that way…not after his partner died…he said he would never get over her….anyway he’s a bit busy with Ellie and the contest…and his work…Noush and Rhys…...”
Molly protested

”You have a lot to offer sis” Insisted Louise sagely…..”Even Red would see that if you just let him you know…..”
Molly shook her head…”Lou you watch too many soap operas”

The week following Jessica’s newspaper and TV interviews was particularly eventful..Sam had been a brick as always and now more than ever Ellie was glad of her support.
Brett had done his duty, keeping the paparazzi out of her hair as much as was possible, but to Ellie’s dismay had kept communication with her to a very basic level. He was even more polite, distant, cold and efficient… he no longer engaged in casual chat at all……surely he didn’t believe all the lies about her?…she wished that when he had been more friendly at the beginning of her journey she could have summoned the courage to make a move..but then, perhaps it would have been inappropriate.

Ellie had never been short of admirers, but all through her teens, life had been tough. Helping her Dad cope with the twins after Kira died left Ellie little time to socialise and she had a maturity about her early on because of the difficult times…worrying about her broken-hearted father, her frail little sister and wayward brother took the place of the usual teen experiences. How ironic that Jessica had accused her of being out of control when she had never even kissed a guy before, let alone most of the other things she was alleged to have done.
Even more ironic, it was the semi finals that Saturday…the love song theme night…it was uncomfortable to say the least.



And as the remaining solo acts sat waiting as usual in the Blue Room before the show, there was immense tension. Denise being voted out had shaken them all…she was an incredible performer….



All tense of course , except for Cindy Anne.



“You missed a fabulous party last night” she gushed ,” I got approached by a leading perfume manufacturer…They said I was the Face of the season……and I am lined up for so much TV work…haven’t had time to rehearse much..” she giggled.



“Well you seem to be popular with the viewers” Mumbled Pete, “Must be nice not to have to worry about a little thing like rehearsals” he added, uncharacteriscally lapsing into sarcasm.



Ellie remained silent, the media was saturated with her story, Jessica seemed to be popping up on any show that would have her…she was seemingly on a moral crusade for some reason…using Ellie as a ticket to airtime. It was so humiliating.


They said little else, allowing Cindy Anne’s irritating babble to wash over them as they waited to be summoned.

As usual Ellie was the last remaining one in the Blue Room…a polite cough announced the arrival of her chaperone

“Miss De’Vill, it’s time to go”



Ellie turned and gasped in shock….A new face smiled back at her



“Hello….um…where’s Brett?”

The new chaperone smiled and introduced himself.

“My name is Gus, Miss De’Vill, I am your chaperone for the remainder of the contest……I hope that’s all-right”



Ellie was stunned, it was anything but all right…but not Gus’s fault…”No no…it’s fine…I just…What happened to Brett??...is he ill? ..”

She felt her heart thrashing in her chest…trying hard to stay calm she clenched her hands into fists….

“I’m sorry Miss, Brett quit earlier this evening, well an hour or so ago… just walked out saying he was finished”

Gus’s words hit her like a ton of bricks….he’d quit??

“He quit? You mean he didn’t want to work with me anymore?”

Gus shrugged..”I don’t know all the details Miss De’Vill…I’m sure it wasn’t anything to do with you personally..he quit the job altogether….”

Tears welled in Ellie’s eyes…not swapped to look after someone else but literally left his job….she never even had a chance to say goodbye..it was so final. She felt sick…..Gus was reminding her they had to leave …but Ellie stayed frozen to the spot….



Tears began to roll down her cheek, she managed to ask Gus to allow her a moment alone to calm her nerves, even as he turned to leave, she began to cry silently…this was the last straw….



Ellie never cried much…since Kira died , when she saw how broken Red had been…the devastation in his eyes just after the accident, .she’d dried her own tears and become his rock..so young and yet such an old soul…Ellie held back everything…her fears, her wants…and put everything she had into helping Red and the twins….but now…she stood alone in the Blue Room and let the tears stream in rivers down her face.

“Oh Sweetheart”

The voice made her jump




“Dad??”


Red hugged her tightly as she sobbed…”I’m here kiddo….I’m here for you don’t worry”

Gus nervously popped his head round the door “I’m so sorry ..uh…they’re going crazy waiting for you”


Ellie sucked in a deep breath and stood straight facing her Dad.

Red smiled..”Whatever you do I am here, I won’t leave you”

“Ok Dad…I’m going to see this through”

“You don’t have to do this for anyone else…you know that”

“I know…I want to…for me”



Red winked at her…”Come on then kiddo…show them what a real singer can do”

Part 44

A little before the contest that same evening, back at the hotel, Sam was on a mission …she was nervous, despite her usual confident persona. With copies of the damning video from her mobile of Ronny and Cindy safely stashed on her laptop and burned to a disc or two, Sam hoped that what she had mapped out in theory since the last show and her discovery, would now come together.

Steve was the ‘nasty’ judge, he was a shrewd businessman and hugely successful in the music industry..’Star Factor‘ was his pet project and the million simolean recording contract was from his own international label.



She had rapped on his hotel room door and almost been taken aback to be invited in cordially by the man himself and not some lackey….

“Has to be quick my dear, we have a show to do in a couple hours..what’s up?.” He said amiably,
Sam took a deep breath…”I have something very serious I need to tell you”



Steve peered at her face, he recognised her from somewhere…”Oh look, if you auditioned and want another go …this isn’t the way love” his eyes darted to the hotel bed and back to her a little disdainfully.

Sam wrinkled her nose…”OH GOD!!! NOOOOO!!!....not here for that Thank you!! I am Ellie’s stylist…you know Ellie right?”



Steve laughed and apologised…he remembered her now, supporting Ellie at all times.

“So what did you want me for…er sorry I don’t recall your name…”

“It’s Sam…….look, there’s no easy way to explain this…other than I was thinking how weird it is someone like Cindy Anne is almost in the finals of this whole thing and cool acts like Lipgloss and Denise get booted off….anyway I followed her last week and she went into Ronny’s suite….” Sam exclaimed..



Steve recoiled a little….”So you’re spying on my contestants? And she went to his room not unlike you came to mine? Seriously Sam I thought you were a bit sharper…”

“Nothing like I came to you” She said angrily, “I came to you for help”



“Look Sam, I don’t want to have to call security up here..can you either get to the point or leave..”

“Fine!” Sam brandished her mobile…

Steve groaned..”Oh come on”



Sam held it in front of him defiantly…”Before you say it, IT’S NOT A FAKE!” she cried, “The only Fakes are the two people in it…”

Reluctantly Steve watched the video.



Sam waited nervously as Steve scowled at the screen, apart from the rather ghastly physical side, there was no mistaking the conversation about vote rigging.
For the first time since she’d entered, Sam wondered if a rich man like Steve would consider doing anything sinister to keep her quiet and his show’s reputation safe.

Steve sighed heavily and handed her back the mobile.

“Ok what is it you want? Money I suppose?”



Sam shook her head..”What? No not really…I just want it to be fair…for the people that are left…no more rigged lines for ANYONE….and….the public to be able to vote for their favourite acts…….”

Steve smiled a little, Sam looked so sincere…he liked her more and more as they stood there..She waited patiently..



“Ok Sam…leave it with me”



Sam gulped..he looked very calm about it all which made her even more nervous…”I have copies of this safe you know…” she blurted
“Good grief..Why does everybody think I’m bloody evil incarnate!!” he exclaimed rolling his eyes in exasperation...



Sam shifted from one foot to the other…feeling a bit awquard.
Steve shook her hand coolly, “I appreciate why you did this Sam..You have integrity…nice to see in someone your age….I will not allow anything to hurt the future of my show OR the true talent any more …I have my people looking into a management deal with ‘Lipgloss’..I think they have potential and I agree with you…off the record of course…that Cindy Anne does not deserve to be in this thing at all…and that was only on the merits of her performances before this evening…



Sam thanked him, nodded and left, leaving Steve to work out a plan of action of his own in what little time was left before the live show began.
