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.”


21. Chapter 20

My feet tripped over as I stood up abruptly. The sweat formed on my forehead dripped down my face. The room seemed to turn upside down and spin vigorously. I tried to keep myself up right as I grabbed what I thought was the counter, but I miscalculated and fell to the floor.

“Harry” Liam shouted rocking my body backward and forward. “What’s wrong?” he shrieked.

Whether my body had gone into some sort of shock mode I don’t know, but whatever it was I couldn’t move. What the fuck is this letter about, why is Marty saying this? Did she leave the letter there deliberately so I would find it? I trusted her, I told her things about me for her to make up some crazy obsessed lie.

Liam splattered water all over my face unfreezing me.

“What the hell?” I shouted.

“What did you expect me to do?”

I frowned “where is she?” I growled.


“Marty” I whispered.

“She’s in you room, remember?”

I nodded and stood up tumbling into the door.

“Take it easy mate” Liam held me up.

I pushed him away from me “get off me.”

The hallway seemed longer than ever as I made my way to my room. Once there I swung open the door and stood by the sofa bed. Marty looked up at me and tilted her head.

“What is this?” I shouted holding up the letter.

“I don’t understand?” she looked at me confused.

Her usual quiet demeanour changed, her nostrils flared with a tint of red spread across her cheeks. She grabbed the letter from my hand and stared down at the letter.

“You were never meant to see that” her voice shook.

“Enough with the lies” I spat.

She shot up backing away from me, maybe I was scaring her. I was too angry to care, my body inched closer to hers.

“Get out of my room” I hissed.

She nodded running out and with that out the front door.

“Well done smart ass, what was that for?” Liam asked.

“Why do you care you don’t even like her?” I roared.

“It’s the middle of the night Harry. She doesn’t know London like we do.”

“I don’t care” I said stubbornly and walked off.

He followed me “are you planning on telling me what that was about?”

“It doesn’t matter” I said coldly.

“Well it obviously does if you’re willing to kick a girl out in the middle of the night” his tone matched mine.

“She’s a liar and a fraud.”


“She wrote me a letter claiming to be my twin” I began to laugh.

“Excuse me?” he said stunned.

“I know it’s ridiculous, and here’s me thinking she was different.”

“Alright calm down, I’m sure there’s a reasonable explanation for all of this.”

“Like what?”

“I don’t know but you can’t leave her out there Harry, you know it and so do I.”

I huffed “fine.”

Marty’s POV

A hole in my heart formed leaving me with sudden emptiness. I thought I threw the letter away? Obviously not my conscious growled. Great she was mad at me too, but it wasn’t my fault I guess he had to find out some time. He never gave me the chance to explain, or even get to know me like I wished. Now he just thinks I’m an imposter, he has no idea.

My face rest in my hands as countless tears fell from my eyes. The wind blew my hair in different directions, the hairs on my arms stood and Goosebumps formed as I began to shiver. After that dramatic entrance I could have took a jacket with me.

“Come on” Harry called out to me before I heard a door close.

I got up off the wall and went back inside. Harry and Liam stood in the living room their faces cold. Great even Liam is against me now, not that he was ever on my side before.

“I will be out of your way in the morning” I said, my voice barley heard.

“No” Harry objected.

A glimmer of hope came over me as I looked up at him.

“I promised Kalli I would watch out for you, friendship means something to me.”

 He began to smile and came towards me, but then his expression changed and the same glare appeared.

“But keep out of my way” he spat budging past me.

My eyes widened as I tried to catch my breath, breathless from the thought of being unwanted by my own twin. Liam huffed before he stormed out the room. He and Harry were very alike.

Liam came back with a pillow and blanket and nodded towards the sofa.

“You can sleep on there.”

I tried to hide my laugh as I covered my mouth.

“What’s funny?” he grunted.

“Nothing” I shook my head.

I guess if you have a life like mine, it starts to become kind of funny in the end.

“You think this is one game don’t you? Harry is fragile, he let himself care about you god knows why. How could you make up some sick lie?”

This boy was really starting to piss me off.

“You think this is a lie? How the fuck do you know?” I hissed.

“Because if you were his twin, you would have appeared months ago before he was even famous.”

“You don’t have a clue” I shrieked. “I’ve only just found out.”

“The funny thing is I don’t know if that’s bullshit or not.”

“Of course you wouldn’t” I rolled my eyes.

“And what is that supposed to mean?”

“Oh come off it, you’ve never liked me. Even if there is the slightest chance of you believing me you will never admit it.”

“That’s bullshit” he shouted.

“So you keep saying” I said coldly.

This shut him up. He growled and slammed his door shut. Louis came home at that moment, he stared at Liam’s door and then back to me.

“What’s up with him?”

“Don’t bother talking to me” I said a little too harshly.

“Someone’s in a mood. Did you and lover boy have a fight? Or wait no that’s Harry?”

“Liam is an ass always has been. Harry please never put us together in the same sentence as the words lover boy.”

He laughed “the mood in this house is so dull” he slumped down on the sofa.

“I was sleeping there” I mumbled.

He tilted his head “since when?”

“Since now.”

“So who are you in an argument with exactly?”

“You’ll find out eventually. You’ll probably even regret talking to me now.”

“Suit yourself” he jumped up and went into his room.

I finally settled down on the sofa and cuddled the blanket. The thing is I knew I didn’t belong here, I suppose I never did.
