Living Secret

Emily is supposed to be dead. She is dead, right? Wrong. The first night in the grave, something stirs, two somethings, and nothing will ever be the same. Emily knows the government doesn't approve of supernatural creatures, so she joins forces with her newfound twin sister Shera to keep their secret safe. However, trouble arises when they fail to do so.

4. Alive

My knees buckle and I fall, not even lifting a finger to catch myself. I land in the soft grass, as Shera's grave was finished sixteen years ago and has grown as have the others. Tears threaten behind my burning eyes, and this time I let them. They roll down my cheeks while my facial expression is indifferent and my skin wouldn't be red if you painted it. "Shera," I whisper. "I love you. Please come back." Then the dirt rustles.

A pristine white hand busts through. The fingernails are uniform-shaped and painted black like mine. I grab the hand and pull my living sister out of the ground.

The dirt explodes and Shera, a girl who looks like a carbon copy of me, steps out. "Hello," I say. "Sister." "Sister? Were we separated at birth or something? Why was I buried?" Oh yeah. I forgot. She died in her first moments, so she doesn't know. "You died. In your first moments of life. I, your twin sister, lived to be sixteen years old until I was cursed and died. I awoke from the death and summoned you. Now you're alive too." Shera looks puzzled at my story. "How to I have the intellect and body of a sixteen-year-old, then?" she asks. "I guess you grew underground," I reply as best I can. "I'm starving. I haven't eaten in sixteen years, you know. Do you have anything to eat?" I grin. We just met and we're already perfectly twin-like. "I have loads." "Then let's eat." "Follow me."
