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.”

24. Chapter 23

Marty’s POV

“What did she say?” I asked.

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

She denied ever having me, denied my entire existence. How could she do that, why would she? She can make sure I never come near her, but not Harry not my twin.

~ ~ ~ ~

Harry’s friend was coming today, and I had to sleep in Liam’s room. Can’t he accept the fact I don’t want to be anywhere near him? Liam made up his bed on the floor.

“Look Liam, it’s your bed. I’ve spent plenty nights in my life sleeping on the floor…”

“Enough I’m not changing my mind.”

I sighed “suit yourself, but when you’re uncomfortable in the middle of the night don’t say I didn’t warn you.”

“I thought it was comfortable?” he smirked.

“I never said that did I?”

He huffed.

The doorbell rang and I heard Harry’s voice as he answered the door.

“I’ve missed you” he half shouted.

“Don’t get all soppy on me mate” a familiar voice answered.

I creased my eyebrows and looked at Liam.

“Who is that?”

He shrugged “don’t know.”

I peeked my head around the door. My whole stomach dropped as I backed away tumbling into Liam.

“What’s wrong?” he asked somewhat annoyed.

“I need to get out of here, before he sees me.”

“Before who sees you?” he asked.

“Pete, please get me out of here” I cried.

Liam’s POV

“Pete, who’s Pete?”

“I don’t have time to talk about this, are you going to help me or not?”

“Go out my window,” I unlocked the window.

“Liam what are you doing?” Harry asked.

Marty and I looked at each other, oops.

“Was just getting some air” I lied.

Marty turned to face the window as a guy came in.

“Hey I’m Pete” he held out his hand.

I was suddenly hesitant to take it, my arms crossed over each other. He laughed and put his hand back down. Harry gave me the look as if to say ‘what the fuck?’

“And who’s this?” he looked at Marty.

I felt her shake beside me, who the fuck is this guy?

“Marty” Harry answered for her. “Are you going to say hello or what?” he said agitated.

She turned around. I watched Pete’s face closely. His expression changed, his smile widened.

“It’s nice to meet you Marty” he laughed.

She nodded not muttering a word.

“I’ll meet you in the living room,” Harry said to him.

He nodded and walked out, Harry turned to face us.

“Is someone going to tell me what that was about?”

“What?” I asked innocently.

He looked at Marty, she tried to smile. He didn’t bother speaking to her only to me.

“Never mind” he followed the direction Pete went in.

I turned to Marty “spill.”

She shrugged.

“For fuck sake Marty” I growled.

“Thank you” she said as polite as she could.

“For what, I did nothing.”

She tried to smile “you tried and that means something to me.”

“It’s fine, I’m going in the living room but can I ask you something?”

She nodded.

“Did he do something to you?”

She cringed which said it all. I nodded and walked back out.

Marty stayed in my room for the rest of the afternoon. Harry and Pete had a catch up. They both left her out of the conversation. Harry left us to go and collect our order from pizza hut.

“So you and Marty seem cosy?” Pete asked.

I shrugged, Marty and I cosy seriously? She hates me, and I hate her. Ever since she came into Harry’s life everything has changed. There’s a thin line between love and hate, my conscious’ wise words of the day. Okay so I like her, she’s attractive what can I say? But that still doesn’t change the fact she lied about being Harry’s twin.

“How do you know her?” I moved the conversation onto him.

“I don’t?”

I smirked “oh come off it, tell me.”

“I’ve never seen her before in my life” he hissed.

My face inched closer to his “something tells me that’s bullshit” I whispered.

Harry came back holding 4 pizzas. I stood up and went into the kitchen to collect one of the pizzas.

“I’ll leave you both to it.”

“Where are you going?” he asked.

“Going to give this to Marty and maybe get an early night.”

He grabbed my arm stopping me from going any further.

“You promised,”

I looked back at him “and I haven’t broken it?”

“You’re close Liam you and I both know it.”

I shook my head “you’re wrong.”

“Am I?”

“She’s scared. I want to help her that’s all.”

“Scared of what me?”

“No Pete.”

“Pete what he’s only just come here?”

“She’s met him before but he’s denying it.”

“More lies” he spat.

“No” I half shouted. “You didn’t see how scared she was Haz, no one can fake that.”

“Just go, make sure she’s alright.”

I joined Marty in my room. She was curled up on my bed. I sat down next to her and passed her a slice of pizza.

“Thought you might be hungry.”

She sat up “thanks.”

“Please tell me about Pete?”

“Can I ask you something first?”

I nodded.

“Does Kalli know Pete?”

“I don’t think so why?”

“I met him on the train to Holmes Chapel. It’s also where I met Kalli. She sensed he was weird from the start so she pulled me away from him. I, as I tend to try and see the good in people didn’t see anything wrong with him. But after maybe the 4th train journey he was still there and Kalli had gone. He pulled me into the bathroom and started to kiss me, he wouldn’t let me pull away at first but I kicked him really hard. He said he would find me, but I didn’t actually think he would.”

“I won’t let him touch you” I snarled.

“It’s not your job to protect me Liam, hell it’s not even your job to pretend to care.”

“Pretend? I’m not a liar Marty, not that you would know.”

She winced, instantly making me feel like an ass.

“If I’m such a liar, how comes you believe this?”

“I saw the way you reacted to him, the way you were when he came.”

“I don’t lie Liam, that’s something you will learn about me eventually.”

“So you plan on sticking around huh?”

“Until Harry believes me yes, and I can’t go back home they’ll take me away.”

“Who?”

“Social services and then make me go into foster care” she began to cry.

I patted her shoulder “it will be okay.”

She wiped her tears and lay back down on the bed, “good night” she whispered.

“Good night Marty,” I lay down on the floor and closed my eyes.
