Separated at birth

Harry looked at me with intensity in his eyes, “I don’t know why you’re here, or who you are. I don’t know if you’re telling me the truth, or if it’s a pack of lies. But I do know for the first time in my life, I feel complete. I feel like I’ve finally found you Marty, this is crazy and I know it is. But it’s true. You could be my twin like you say, or you could be another person, but whatever it is I don’t feel empty anymore.”


17. Chapter 16

I finally arrived in London and I have never seen so many people in one place. It was packed, people in every direction. I could barely stop to think without being pushed or shoved. A big poster outside caught my eye, One Direction album signing Monday 12th. Well that was today? I looked at the time it was probably 5 in the morning. It would be held at hmv, should I go? Do I just tell Harry or I could write him a letter? Maybe I could get one of the fans to give it to him.

I went to the nearest McDonalds and sat down in the corner. I asked them for a piece of paper and a pen, after eyeing me suspiciously they gave me them.

Dear Harry…
This letter is probably the hardest thing I have ever had to write. You probably won’t believe anything that is said, and I have prepared myself for that. But I have to try and make you see. Maybe even understand how scared I am. Life is full of liars and cheaters. You may even be surrounded by them. My name is Marty and you don’t know me. But I know you, well sort of. I’m not a crazy obsessed One Direction fan that you will probably label me as after you've read this. I am a girl who has just found out she has a family she never knew existed. My adopted parents died not long ago and this is when I was told in a letter. I went in search for my family after finding out I was born in Holmes Chapel. This is when I arrived at the hospital you were at on the day of the charity event. You are my twin brother Harry, I am your twin. Yes this sounds so ridiculous that probably if I wasn't completely exhausted and drained I would find this funny. I read my file and it said my birth mother was Anne Cox and I had a twin named Harry Cox. This is why I asked you your birthday to check and see if it was even possible. We were born on the same day Harry, the same year. This is best said face to face I know that, but I don’t think I have enough courage to do this in person. I can’t deal with being laughed at. Believe what you want Harry, but I really hope you believe the truth.
Love Marty.

I held the letter in my hands. Do I give this to him? Why should I try and ruin someone else’s life like mine was? Hmv was down the road from here.  I crumpled up the letter and shoved it in my pocket making my way to hmv. The fans were all around the building, the wristbands will be sold out by now.

“Hi” I said to one of the girls.

The glare she gave me told me immediately she wasn’t the right person to ask. I walked past the whole line looking for someone who was kind. I noticed a bunch of girls singing lyrics to I’m guessing one direction songs.

“Excuse me” I said politely.

They all looked at me, one of them smiled.

“Are you guys meeting One Direction?” I asked.

They all nodded and cheered, bless them.

“Do you think it’s possible one of you can give this to Harry?” I asked.

One of the girls raised her brow as she looked at the others.

“Don’t worry” I muttered walking away.

“No wait” one of them called running up to me.

I turned to face the girl who had originally smiled at me.

“I’ll give it to him.”

“Really?” my face lit up.

She nodded “of course.”

“Thank you” I smiled at her and handed her the letter.

I waited outside HMV and watched all fans one by one head inside to meet the boys. It was kind of amusing seeing them go in normal and come out a wreck. Each reaction was completely different, I just needed to see the girl and ask her if she gave Harry the letter. Because if she didn’t I would have to find a way.

My phone rang. I looked down to see it was Kalli.

“Hey” I answered.

“Where are you, are you in London?”

“Yes I am” I covered my ears to try and hear her.

“I don’t know if the screams are coming from my end or yours” she laughed, “where about in London I’ll come meet you.”

“I’m outside by HMV, where one direction are doing an album signing.”

“Me too” she shrieked.

She then hung up. Wait so Kalli is a one direction fan? Huh who would have thought, I could have given her the letter damn.

I noticed her wave as she ran towards me pulling me into a hug.

“I’m so glad you’re here” she smiled.

I tried to smile “so you’re a one direction fan?”

She started to laugh “from the looks of it I’m guessing you’re not?”

I shrugged “they’re okay.”

“I’m sort of a special fan some would say, come on do you want to meet them?”

I froze “what?”

“Oh you’re one of those fans who act like they don’t care but do” she laughed.

“No, it’s not that how can I meet them?”

“Niall is my boyfriend” she admitted.


Well this is just fucking great eh? I rolled my eyes.

“Come on.”

She grabbed my arm and pulled me inside. Some of the fans greeted Kalli as we walked in, they ignored me completely. She waved to Niall and sat down on the chair beside another girl.

“This is Aliza, Aliza this is Marty.”

“Hey” she smiled.


My eyes wandered over to the table where one direction sat. Harry smiled as he signed the fans albums. His eyes met mine, his smile faded. A fan spoke to him but he didn’t notice them, I started to feel uncomfortable as our staring match continued.

“Harry” someone shouted.

He jumped and turned to the fan in front of him, this was my opportunity to speak to Kalli.

“You didn’t tell me Niall was your boyfriend.”

“I don’t like to brag.”

I nodded.

The place was filled with noisy girls letting out occasional screams. Some girls wept, others laughed but all were happy.

“Did you find out anything?” she asked.

“Yes I…”

“Kalli come here” Niall shouted.

“Sorry excuse me for a second,” she got up and met Niall.

But do I tell her, can I tell the girl who’s going out with one of his best friends? Will she think I’m insane and befriend me?

She came back moments later and turned to face me.

“You were saying.”

“Oh nothing” I said awkwardly. “I need some air, I’ll meet you in a second” I left her sitting there.

I don’t think I can do this, everything is so messed up.
