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?


27. Moving In

Tanya's mother sat there, not knowing what to say. "Oh, darling..." She got up quickly, and gave the frail boy a tight hug. "I had no idea.", she whispered into his hair and ear. She pulled away from the boy and stood up, smoothing down her dress. She smiled kindly at him, looking straight into his eyes to show him that she meant it. "I have to go now, sweetie. Tanya and Lucas need to see me. But I will come back and see you later on to make sure you are OK. I had no idea my husband was capable of doing such evil things. I'm awfully sorry, sweetie. Bye." She turned around and grabbed the door handle tightly. "Wait.", the woman said. She turned back around and faced the boy. "When you get discharged from the hospital and told you can leave, do not tell the staff about your parents being in Australia. Tell them that I am your guardian, because I will be.

Her hand was brought to her head, and she sat on a soft chair nearby. A small female nurse came sauntering down the corridor, obviously thinking a lot of herself. "What you doing sitting there?", she asked roughly. She slapped her lips rudely, chewing gum sliding around her threatening mouth. "Isn't it unhygienic to be chewing chewing gum whilst serving and medicating patients?", Mrs Marshall replied smartly back. The nurse just looked at Mrs Marshall, while Mrs Marshall smiled sarcastically then rolled her eyes once the nurse had turned her back on her. "Thank God for that!", she whispered to no one in particular. She heaved herself up, walking in the direction of the front desk to go down the correct corridor. She smiled at the receptionist who was talking to someone at the counter. The customer turned around and looked straight at Mrs Marshall. Her eyes widened and her mouth widened into an 'o'. It was the children's doctor...
