private (between shiri and silverroses2009)
« on: June 29, 2009, 07:05:56 PM »
Rebecca always felt that there was something missing in her life but there was no way of knowing. Soon that would change and her parents would tell her that she had a twin brother who died at birth or so they thought. She was sitting on the couch flipping through channels waiting for something to happen it was very boring today.

Jesse entered, feeling burdened and nervous. She loved her daughter dearly but the news she bore wasn't one to lift her heart. She had talked it over with her husband earlier that morning and they had finally decided it was time. Her pants brushed the edge of the couch as she sat next to her daughter. "Hi, Rebecca," she greeted demurely.

The tone in her mother's voice made her think something was up. Turning off the television set she turned toward her mother and looked at her. "What's wrong?" She asked quietly.

"Well...uh," it was very delicate information and she wasn't sure that she was the one who should give it. "You see...you, uh...aren't an only child..." she would go slowly and reveal it all one step at a time. "That is...you weren't an only child..."

"Wait what?" She turned away from her mother trying to let all this sink in. The thing she kept thinking that was missing in her life was now coming at her full throttle. A tear fell from her eye.

Jesse sighed, remembering. "Well twenty-two years ago, when you were born, I had another child...a little boy..." It was breaking her heart to see her daughter in distress. "He...he didn't make it, Rebecca..."

"And you waited 22 years to tell me this?" She moved away from her mother feeling heart broken about all this. A few moments later she got up and she needed to get out of the house.

Jesse felt tears stinging the sides of her eyes. "I had to, dear," she whispered after Rebecca left the room. She felt an emptiness that she had never felt before, like maybe she had betrayed her only surviving child.

No you didn't have to hide it you could tell me she thought to herself. "I"m going out." She said going to get her jacket and wallet in case she got hungry.

(Now for the awkwardness)
James tucked a small slip of paper back into his jeans, it contained the address of his real parent's residence. He stepped up onto the porch in apprehension, then turned back to the block. 'I'm losing my nerve,' he thought. 'Maybe I will be able to if I walk around the block once.' He half walked, half jogged down the street.

When she stepped outside she felt as if someone was just standing there but she shook her head thinking it must be because of what her mother said. "I'll be back later." She called in and then stepped outside and to her car. Getting in she started the car and started heading down the same street he just went down.

Something made the back of his neck prickle as he heard the sound of a car coming closer. 'Anxiety,' he decided, dismissing the feeling. 'I'll just make a round this block then try the door,' he tried to force himself to believe.

She did not see the boy's face so she had no idea that was her twin brother. But that could not be he was dead. Gripping the steering wheel she would go to the place that calmed her down. A pond not far from here.

James glanced over his shoulder. To try and nerve himself up about the car being near him. He squinted at the windshield, not being able to see through the glare there. He felt strangely curious about the driver.

She stopped about 2 blocks in front of him and then got out of his car. By the time she stopped she had forgotten about the person that was walking down the street a few moments earlier.

He rounded the block in easy strides, coming back to the door. He approached the porch as he had before only this time he managed to move his hand toward the doorbell. His hand hung over it tentatively.

Her mom would answer the door and she would be home in about half an hour. Sighing she walked into the middle of the clearing where there was a pond. The pond was peaceful and she came there to think.

He pressed the button in, wincing as the sound echoed through the house. This was way to awkward for his tastes. He counted the seconds as the door opened.

"Yes?" asked a slightly sad sounding voice. A woman appeared with watery eyes.

"Um...? Is this the Thompson residence?" James asked with a little worry.

"Yes," the woman answered sharply, obviously wanting to know his reason for being here.

"May I come in? I have some...odd news," he strangled the sentence.

Her eyes narrowed in suspicion, "Alright then...come in."

"Thanks," he said before crossing the threshold.

Something told her to go back home and she left the peaceful pond and went to her car. Getting in she turned the car around quite fast and started heading back home. A few minutes later after she got in the driveway she walked inside the house not realizing there was someone else in here. As if twin instinct it made her stomach turn as she felt someone different.

There was a pause in their voices as they heard the door open. James sat in the kitchen with a glass of orange juice in front of him. Their mother hurriedly was making something on the stove with a rather shocked expression.

"I'm home." She called out not knowing there was someone else in the kitchen with her mom. "Smells go...." Her voice was trailed off as she saw someone sitting in her chair and did not see his face yet.

Jesse took her attention off the heating pasta and stared somewhat blankly at her daughter. "Looks like you're not an only child after all dear," she said in wonderment.

James didn't dare turn around, he sipped feebly at his juice as she came in.

Instantly she knew who it was call it twin intuition. "But you told me he was dead." She looked to her mom looking rather confused.

"That's what I thought," she explained. She motioned at some folded papers on the table, "The official papers of his adoption are right there...my name included...there must have been some mistake."

James played with the rim of his glass. "This was all a shock to me too. I searched everywhere for all of you."

She went over to the table and picked up the papers of the adoption to make sure they read it correctly. "This can't be happening." She said out loud throwing the papers down and turning away from all of them. (I was thinking maybe she had a younger brother that died and that's why she does not trust him.)
