As Trenton pulled up to the curb of his sister’s house, he paused. He had no clue who this person was, and they were going to be living together for an indefinite amount of time. He had tried to keep his mind off from that fact the whole trip here, but now as he looked at the looming house he could not keep the thought from entering his brain. She was his sister, his twin sister, yet he did not know hardly anything about her.
Growing up in two different houses, when their parents divorced, his mother got her and his father got him. There was the occasional phone call or Christmas card, but traveling across the ocean just was not a possibility at the drop of a hat. He and his father had lived in Hawaii until just recently when his father had decided he was going to go on a world cruse and that Trenton was old enough to leave the nest. College started up in just a couple weeks, and his twin sister was ironically going to the same one. By the grace of God she had rented a house off campus and was looking for a roommate, he was that roommate.
After looking at the house for a good minute, he shut off the engine and stepped out of the car. At 5’10’’ he wasn’t short but not overly tall, his sandy blond hair draped over one of his crystal blue eyes, he reaches up and pushes it back, as he is almost constantly doing, then walks behind the car to the trunk. The trunk pops open at a touch of a button, he stares down into the depths at the two duffel bags that contain everything he will need for the next 5 months. Slipping the keys in his pocket, he grabs both of the black bags, slams the trunk and walks up to the house head held high. He would be damned if he was going to let her know that he is apprehensive about the whole situation. At that moment, he happens to look next door and seeing a collage girl sun bathing, he gives her a half cocked smile, well at least there were some benefits about the situation.
Putting both bags down on the porch steps, he knocks on the door then leans against the railing one hand in his pocket as he waits for her to answer the door. He wonders if she is as nervous as he is for a second, then his eyes go back to the sunbathing neighbor, figuring he might as well enjoy the view.
