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?


16. Hospital

Dom grabbed at Tanya, tugging her shirt to make her open her eyes. It wasn't working. He kept tugging and tugging, tears pricking painfully at the corners of his brilliant brown eyes. He pulled her against his chest, and cried into her shoulder. He thought of the worst, but he knew that he couldn't let that happen to her. She looked so peaceful. As if she was just in a deep sleep. Heavy footsteps ran along the pavement behind Dom and he turned his head. "Call an ambulance. Please." Dom hid his face again. Tanya's mum was in complete shock. She was standing there, but her knees buckled. She fell to the floor, shaking and crying uncontrollably. Her daughter. Her daughter... What had happened to her daughter? Miss Carter pulled out her mobile phone and rang 999. She searched around for a road sign to look where they were and the nearest door number. Miss Carter herself looked worried and panicky, even though she was just Tanya's teacher. JUST Tanya's teacher. She was Tanya's favourite teacher.

Minutes later a flashing green and blue ambulance came rushing round the corner, sirens blaring down the street. Several residents came wondering gormlessly out of the houses, watching as if it was a freak show. Elder residents covered their faces and were crying into their husbands shoulders, thinking something even worse than they imagined had happened. Little children ran down the street, getting nearer and nearer, eyes wide and jaws dropped down to the floor. They looked so scared and didn't know what had happened. Paramedics pushed through the onlookers and ran towards Tanya lying on the grey hard cold pavement. Dom stood up, his legs and arms shaking. His hand went over his mouth when he saw Tanya getting lifted into the ambulance. He was so pale. Tanya's dad put his arm round Dom and Tanya's mum, which surprised Dom, but the didn't do anything about it. A female paramedic turned round and faced everyone. "One person can come in the ambulance with her." She looked at everyone's faces, waiting for an answer. Tanya's parents looked at Dom. "No. It's OK. One of you go, she knows you more and she'd want to see you more." He smiled at them, and Tanya's mum hopped sadly into the back of the ambulance. "We'll get the car and follow the ambulance." Tanya's dad told his wife. Dom and Miss Carter walked with Tanya's father towards the car and the car followed the ambulance. Dom sat in the back and leant his head against the cold damp window. His forehead went cold and his body turned chilly. Well here goes nothing, he told himself.
