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.”


23. Chapter 22

The question I kept asking myself over and over again, was what if it was true? What if she was my twin and she found me, and then I acted like this for no reason because I’m selfish. How is she supposed to ever like me again?

Why am I even doubting my original thoughts? Of course she isn’t my twin. My mum would never have done that. That is something everybody knows, never separate twins. It’s just wrong.

“Hey mum” I said softly.

“Hello sweetie, how’s London?”

“Interesting, actually there’s something I want to talk to you about?”

“Okay,” she said wearily.

“Do I have any brothers and sisters?”

“Harry what is this?”

“I mean have I ever, before I was born, after, or around the same time?”

“Who have you been talking to?” her voice quietened.

“You haven’t answered my question” I said coldly.

“The answer is no, you don’t have any brothers or sisters” she snapped.

My mum would never lie to me, I know her. But the hesitation in her voice struck me as odd; very odd.

“You’re telling me the truth?” I asked.

“You think I would lie to you Harry?” she seemed almost offended at me defying her.

“No of course not” I whispered.

“Look I need to go, talk soon” she hang up straight away.

“Good bye to you to” I grunted.

What is the harm in getting a DNA test? My conscious said. Well for a start it would show her that I believed her lie and chose her over my mum! How can you be 100% sure she’s lying? I’m not but I trust my mum.

What really bugs me is the fact Kalli might know about this. What would she have to say about this? I can bet any money that was the reason she made me promise to keep her here until she was back.

I decided to text her and see what she has to say about this.

I think you have some explaining to do don’t you? I saw the letter Marty wrote me, do you know about this?

She text back instantly.

Believe what you want Harry. But I trust her, and so do you deep down you even said so once yourself. I would never have left her with you if I didn’t believe it.

How can she be so easily fooled?

Hayley’s name appeared on my phone. I jumped up and answered the call.

“Hey stranger” she chirped.

I closed my eyes “you have no idea how good it is to hear your voice.”

 Her giggle was infectious, my lips turned into a huge grin.

“I miss you too, now when can I come?” she asked.

“As soon as possible, I need you.”

“Why what’s happened?”

“There is too much to say over the phone.”

“Okay are you okay though?”

“I will be when you’re here” I smiled.

“You cheesy shit, okay I can be there in a couple of days?”

“I’ll look forward to it.”

“I’ve missed you Harry.”

“I’ve missed you more” I hang up chucking my phone on the bed.

Marty knocked on my door and stood outside awaiting confirmation to come in.

“Marty not now” I moaned.

She walked up to me “I want to say one thing, and then I’ll leave you alone.”

“Make it quick” I sat down on my bed.

“You can call me whatever name you wish, you can treat me whatever way you want. But that doesn’t change the truth Harry. One day I will prove it to you, and you will finally believe me. But now I want you to listen, listen to how you feel when you’re with me. Can you deny the spark we had when we first touched?”

“So what Marty, we had some connection. You make up some story how you’re my twin?”

“Why are you so sure that I was lying?”

“I spoke to my mum Marty.”

She gulped “what did she say?”

“That I don’t have any brothers or sisters, how do you explain that?”

Her face could have broken me, crumpled me into millions of pieces. But not now, not when she has lied to me.

“Now if that was all you wanted to talk about, I’m busy.”

She nodded and made her way out of my room. I kicked my bed, why does it feel like I’m the one who’s in the wrong? I didn’t make up the lie, she did. 

A/N: So I changed the blurb, because it's one of my favourite parts to come in this movella. Sorry this is short, but don't worry you'll get a longer one tomorrow! Much love xxx
