Twins-Best of Friends?

Identical twins-surely they're the best of friends. Sadly, that's not always the case...
Read Ryan's tale of bullies and betrayal...


13. Thirteen~"We grew up."


What was Cherry on about? I'm not hurting Ryan, I'm...Actually, I really have no idea what I'm doing to Ryan. It's not bullying. At least, I don't think it's bullying. It's hard to get out of it now, Rob keeps asking me what we're going to do to him next but I ignore him. I really don't want to get into trouble and for some reason, I don't want Ryan getting hurt.

Oh God. I've gone soft.


I look up, dropping my drink by accident. It's Niamh, from one of the other Year Nine classes. And I've had a crush on her for years. Sadly, she's got a boyfriend now, some weird nerd boy from the year above. "Oh hey," I stammer, "Wh-why are you here?"

She giggles and sits down next to me. "Because," she shrugs, "Everything all right? You and Ryan don't really seem that close any more, did you have a fight?"

"Um..." What do I say to that? Oh not really, I just think he's annoying so me and a couple of other boys might be bullying him. And yesterday I made his nose bleed and broke his favourite CD. So...yeah. I can't say that! "No, we just kinda...grew up, you know?" No, of course she doesn't.

Niamh gives me a weird look but shrugs. "Okay..." she says. She pauses. "You and Ryan were both really popular back in primary school, everyone loved you," Niamh points out, "But now, you're really popular and Ryan...well. No one really likes Ryan that much any more."


"And that's weird," she interrupts, "Because you're identical. So, like, you both look the same but you always get the girls. Why doesn't Ryan? I know you're both smart, so why does Ryan do better than you in exams and stuff?"

"I don't know!" I shrug, "Like I said, we grew up. Ryan stays in his little dream world, and I stay in the real world. It's just that Ryan's shy!"

"Sure," Niamh says, getting up, "Ricky, look out for your little brother. He found last year tough, remember. Don't let it happen again." And she walks away.

Why do all the girls worry so much about Ryan?
