Mia rolled the
end of her side braid around her bun and secured it with a bobby pin while
staring at herself in the mirror.
The curtain next
to her billowed open and the cool ocean breeze raced through her, reminding her
to pay attention to the sound of the crashing waves outside her parents’ beach
house; something she hadn’t indulged in, in a long time.
Her bedroom door

“Isn’t it odd how even when we look the same, I’m

Mia rolled her
eyes at her identical twin who stared back at her in the mirror.
“You look nice. I wonder why”, she said and Mia caught an ironic note in her tone
but brushed it off.
“It’s been a while since the whole family’s gathered”, Mia said with a shrug.
“Oh, I’m sure, Aunt Marie will appreciate your effort.
Come on”, Ava chuckled.
Ava frowned and
studied her sister for a second.
she exclaimed raising an eyebrow, “You

Ava stood up,
walked towards the door and opened it before glancing back at her dumbfounded
and two-minute younger twin.
