Mail Order Bride, Epilogue 1

Epilogue I

One day Isabella was getting ready to work on a new client, to do the artist make up. This new client came in and he was wearing a partial mask. She sat him down and adjusted the lighting. She was puzzled because the person looked vaguely familiar...and it troubled her…and she felt uneasy. She slowly and with great care started to remove the mask and when the mask came off suddenly… she

Screamed and screamed and screamed and then she fell…into unconsciousness.

The face she saw was burned but she could still recognize that it was her former husband whom she killed and burned before burying him!!

Her former Filipino husband had traced her all the way from Philippines to New Zealand. He looked at her and grabbed the razor blade and as he walked towards her lifeless body he emitted this horrible noise, its pay back time! ….heh! Heh! Heh!.....


Jamie was diagnosed with aids, the prognosis was not good. He came back from his OE and he was waiting to die the same hospice as the one where Isabella placed Gilbert.
Christine became a famous ceramics potter, holding exhibitions and giving talks all over the world. She became a champion of women’s rights. She holds a Karate Third Dan black belt. She gives free self-defense lessons to women in community centers. In time, her keliods scars faded lightly and she wasn’t so terrifying to look at. She is comfortable with her scarred face, and goes about without any make up.


Kevin moves about in a special motorized wheel chair and remains a quadriplegic He was inspired by Christopher Reeves, the Superman. Kevin became a famous mouth artist in his own right, specializing in Maori art. He gives motivational talks to people with spinal cord injury, paralysis and mobility impairment as well as to able bodied people. He is involved in raising funds for stem cell research. He is still hoping for Christine to forgive him.


Connie visits Christine in her studio to have cup of tea. She is still praying for Christine to forgive Kevin.

“The Lord works in mysterious ways,” Connie tells her family.
