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.”


19. Chapter 18

Marty’s POV

“Now Marty has someone been a bad girl?” the man whispered.

How did I get back here? Did I never leave the motel?

“I don’t understand.”

“Liars never do,” he smirked.

His hand traced the outlines of my scar on my right arm.

“Stop” I whispered.

“Never” he laughed maliciously.

My hands gripped the sides of the sofa bed, my eyes clenched shut. Small whimpers escaped my lips as I tried to tell myself it was just a dream.

“Hey hey sh, everything’s alright” Harry whispered to me as he stroked my hair.

Tears were pouring from my eyes as I looked up at him. I pulled myself up and wrapped my arms around his neck burying my face into his chest. He rubbed my back and hugged me tighter.

“What is it Marty?”

“Nothing” I choked.

“I get bad dreams too” he sat down next to me.

“So does everybody, I’m just being pathetic” I tried to laugh.

“It sometimes affects others more, come on tell me.”

“I don’t want to talk about it” I frowned.

“I’ll tell you one of mine if you tell me?”

I sighed “you first.”

“I was a little kid and I was at home with my mother maybe. There was a little girl with me, I loved her” he seemed curtain. “But something wasn’t right, there were too many people. Someone grabbed her and took her from me,” the tears seemed to affect his eyes too.

“And the girl she tries to hold your hand, but they make you let go.”

“Yes exactly how do you know that?”

Because I have had that dream repeatedly, I am the girl in his dream.

I shrugged “Just a guess.”

He wiped his eyes “now you.”

“I was in a motel, the one I stayed in Holmes Chapel. There was this man and he well” I looked at him.

“He what Marty?”

“I can’t” I cried.

He closed his eyes, his breathing grew heavy.

“Is that why you were at the hospital?” he asked.

I never thought about that as an excuse. I would never have to tell him what I found out, we could just be friends, a secret that only I knew. But I don’t want that, I want him to know that I’m his twin, that I’m the girl in his dream.

“No it wasn’t Harry that was why I left I mean there was another reason I went…”

“To find your real parents?” he asked.

I nodded “yes.”

“You stole the file didn’t you?”

“I did” I admitted.

“I want to help you find your parents. Everybody deserves their family.”

You are my family my conscious whispered.

“But what if I had already found them?” I asked.

“Then what are you waiting for?” he asked.

“It’s more complicated than I originally thought.”

He sighed “nothing is complicated when it comes to love and family Marty remember that.” He then changed the subject “let’s get breakfast shall we?”

I smiled “yeah I’d like that.”

He made me a bacon sandwich with a diet coke, my favourite. We sat down at the table, he looked at me.

“I have an important question, which sauce?” he held up two sachet’s brown and tomato.

“Brown sauce definitely” I laughed.

“Good girl” he smirked.

“I thought I heard voices” Kalli rubbed her eyes.

“Sorry didn’t mean to wake you” Harry got up and passed her a bowl. “Coco pops?”

“Thanks” she smiled.

“Ew you like coco pops?” I grimaced.

“You sounds just like Harry” she rolled her eyes.

“I hate them” he laughed.

“I just don’t think chocolate and milk belong together” I shrugged.

“Exactly how about chocolate milkshakes?”


He held up his hand, I laughed and high fived him.

Before I knew it everyone was in the kitchen eating their breakfasts. I haven’t really had the chance to speak to any of them, but I wouldn’t know what to say. I have never been good with people period.

Kalli was odd. She barley spoke to me occasionally sending me daggers. Maybe she’s worried I’m taking over here, I don’t want her to think that.

“Can I speak to you, alone?” she asked me.

I nodded and went with her out the room. She sat me down on the sofa a hard look across her face.

“Do you have something to tell me?” she crossed her arms.


“Wrong answer, try again” she said coldly.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about” I stood up.

She pulled me back down and passed me a letter “try once more.”

It was the letter I wrote Harry, the one the fan said she’d give him. Tears reappeared in my eyes as Kalli looked at me.

“I don’t know what to say.”

“Is this true?” she asked.

I nodded.

“Why haven’t you told him?”

“How do you expect me to?” I half shouted.

“Easy just tell him.”

“Oh yeah because it’s so easy” I spat. “You have no idea, I shouldn’t have come here” I pushed her away from me.

“Marty” she shouted.

I couldn’t hear anything else she was saying, I had already decided to zone her out. She chased me down the road.

“Marty” she called again.

“Leave me alone” I barked.

I was a very fast runner and easily managed to lose her. I collapsed on the floor and let out my tears. Silly me for thinking no one would find out, why did I have to write that letter?

~ ~ ~ ~

It had been 3 hours since I had gone from their house. I knew I had to go back and collect my phone and card. After many attempts of trying to pull myself up, Kalli had appeared and offered me her hand.

“I’m sorry” she frowned.

I nodded and took her hand as we walked back to hers.

“I had no right. It’s none of my business.”

“I don’t want to talk about it.”

“I understand, but I’m here if you ever want to talk?” she patted my back.

“I know” I tried to smile.

Once we arrived back Harry greeted me with a hug, I ignored Kalli as I hugged him back.

“I thought you went without saying good bye” he frowned.

“Just needed some fresh air,”

Everyone else hugged me which obviously made me feel awkward, all apart from Liam. Who seemed to ignore my existence altogether, I tried to brush it off but it really did annoy me. But I couldn’t worry about him right now, after all he meant nothing to me it was Harry I cared about.
