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.”


30. Chapter 29

Harry’s POV

I woke up with my arms wrapped around Marty. She was sleeping, occasionally letting out faint snores. Usually I would hate to hear someone snore, but hers were cute.

I pulled myself up from the bed and got dressed. My mission now is to take Marty back home, she needs to meet my… well our mum. I need to talk to her demand her to know why she lied and why she did it. Something I am sure of is that I will never forgive her for this.

Niall and Kalli were sat in the kitchen taking me by surprise.

“When did you two get back?” I asked.

“Yesterday evening” Niall answered.

“I see you and Marty are good” Kalli smiled.

“It was rough for a while” I admitted. “But it’s all good now and I’m glad.”

“What about her and Liam?” she asked wearily.

“What about them?”

She seemed stuck for words “I don’t know when I was here they never spoke and…”

“Nothing’s going on with them. Liam would never do that to me” I shrugged.

“Sure he wouldn’t but what is so wrong with them two anyway?”

I shook my head “please stop talking about them.”

“Fine” she said bluntly.

“I’m planning on taking Marty away for the weekend” I told them.

“We have your mum’s thing Harry?”


“Your mum’s birthday?” she looked at me puzzled.

How did she know about this and not me?

“I’ve tried to tell you a million times” she shrugged.


“This weekend?” she gave me the evils.

“Oh right yeah der. Well that was where I wanted to take her, but yeah okay.”

We all made up the cars whilst Marty was still asleep. We had a certain seating plan for car journeys. One car would consist of Me, Liam, Kalli and Niall, the other Zayn, Alisa and Louis. I didn’t want her going in the other car away from me.

“Kal, how do you feel about going in the other car?”

She looked at Alisa and smiled “that’s fine.”

Liam and Louis came out of the house holding their suitcases.

“It’s only for a weekend” I reminded them.

“Yeah a hell of a weekend” Louis laughed.

“Where’s Marty?” Liam asked.

“Upstairs I’m going to go wake her now, have you packed her stuff?”

He nodded.

Marty was still asleep on the bed, I’m surprised she hasn’t woken up by now.

“Marty” I shook her gently.

She turned around to face me “mm?”

“Get up love, we need to get going.”

She sat up and rubbed her eyes “where?”

“Do you trust me?”

She nodded.

“Then you don’t need to know where yet.”


“I will never make you do something you don’t want okay?”

“I know” she tried to smile.

“Let’s go,” I pulled her up.

“I’m just going to change or something” she muttered going in the bathroom.

Marty’s POV

After having a quick shower, brushing my teeth and getting dressed I met everyone downstairs. I felt touched that we were all going somewhere and I was invited. I don’t know I guess I’ve never felt part of their ‘group.’

“You ready?” Kalli asked.

I nodded “yeah sorry I took so long.”

“It’s fine” Harry smiled.

He held out his hand. I rolled my eyes and linked my arm with his as we headed to one of the cars parked outside. Liam and Niall got in beside us. I don’t know what it’s going to be like with Liam, Harry and I in a small space but we shall see.

“So do you plan on telling me where we are going?” I asked Harry.

“You haven’t told her?” Liam asked him.

Harry scowled at him “I presumed if I told her before she would say no. But now she’s ready and everything there’s no harm?”

“What?” I asked.

“Look Marty. You have your whole life ahead of you, we have it together you know that?”

I nodded “get to the point Harry.”

“Our mother is a part of our lives too. You can choose to delay it for as long as possible but that doesn’t do anyone any good. It is her birthday tomorrow, and we all planned to surprise her. I thought why not go one up and bring her you.”

This would make Harry happy for me and her to play happy families. Of course if she could love me, treat me as if I were important enough it would mean everything to me. But that’s not how it is, she denied my existence. She doesn’t care about me. She won’t want me anywhere near her. Could I really go all that way to be rejected by my own mother?

“I know you’re nervous of course you are…”

“Harry stop you don’t understand. She won’t want to see me, please I can’t do this” I pleaded.

“It’s you and me Marty, always.”

“A mother and son’s relationship you can’t get any stronger than that.”

“And that’s where you are wrong, somehow I think twins may beat that” he smiled.

I know he’s just trying to make me feel better, but I can’t do this. The car moved making me panic even more. Harry held my hand tightly trying to calm me down.

“If she tries to kick you out, if she says one thing out of line I will leave with you” he whispered to me.

“You promise?”

“I promise.”

I finally relaxed and lent back on the seat. Although my breathing had slowed my legs wouldn’t stop shaking.

“How about a game of cards?” Niall eased the tension.

I nodded and took the cards from his hands and shuffled the pack. My not birth mother taught me how to shuffle properly. We settled down and played a game or two. Let’s just say they have nothing on me.

“Damn girl” Niall shook his head.

I laughed “sorry I really should have warned you.”

“Another” Liam ordered.

“It’s your loss I suppose.”

I dealt the cards again. Sooner or later I had won another game, they all stared at me stunned.

“How is she doing this?” Niall asked.

Harry shrugged a smile stuck on his face only making me smile.

“Let me shuffle” he grabbed all of the cards.

After dropping most of the cards on the floor, he managed to shuffle the cards. But the cards clearly favoured me as I won again.

“Is that 4 times?” I teased them.

“I give up” Harry smirked.

“We are not quitters” I reminded him.

“No we aren’t but I am” he laughed.

I rolled my eyes and put down the cards. The car came to a halt and we had arrived. Harry’s comforting touch did nothing to calm me. I inhaled as much oxygen as my lungs could carry. Harry and Niall stepped outside of the car.

“You okay?” Liam asked.

I shook my head.

“Harry won’t let you down, he’s here for you Marty.”

“What about you?”

“Always” he smiled.

We all walked up to the door. I grabbed Harry’s arm tightly, maybe hurting him. But he showed no sign of pain or distress so I continued.

A woman opened the door her smile infected them all but Harry and me.

“What are you doing here?” she chirped.

“We couldn’t miss your birthday Anne” Louis kissed her cheek.

Harry was frozen beside me. Not that I blamed him if someone pushed me I would fall flat on my face. She looked at each and every one of us, until her eyes landed on me.

“And who’s this?” she asked.

“Oh I’m sorry I forgot to introduce you guys,” Harry said coldly. “You remember Marty right, my twin?” the bluntness of his voice sending chills down my spine.
