Tanya is a 13 year old girl, who lives with her mum, dad and annoying older brother Lucas. He never leaves her alone, and he is always pestering her! She finds out that she actually has a long-lost identical twin sister, but they got separated at birth. Tanya can't wait to meet her sister, and she is so excited, but there is something not right about this. Little does Tanya know that a dark secret is being held back, but was it really her family holding it back or Tanya herself?


31. A Wounded Soldier

A hunched over figure sat in a dim room, their head in their hands. A small figure with a blanket over them lay in the bed next to them. The person in the bed was Tanya. The hunched over figure was Josh. 

Josh looked up from his hands and sighed heavily. His cheeks were tear stained, his eyes were puffy, his mouth was turned down into a frown. His eyes had dark bags under them, hinting that he had not got enough sleep. Josh leaned forward and took Tanya's hand in his. It was cold and lifeless. He thought to himself how he could not live without her. But he would have to. 

Tanya's mum and dad walked silently into the room, her mum crying, her dad attempting to stay strong for his wife and Josh. Tanya's mum ran over to Josh and put her arms round him. He let go of Tanya's hand and hugged her back. He cried into her shoulder, incapable of stopping. He had lost her. Tanya had lost her life to an unexpected illness that had been growing inside of her for some time, undetected. Not even the doctors knew about it. They had to research for hours on end to find out what had happened to Tanya. Whatever it was, she hadn't survived it. The illness had taken Tanya's life. Her fragile, frail body couldn't take it, she couldn't stand it. She lost her battle.
