I was sitting on his couch in this little Italy, curled up in Pajama's.
"Danni?" I looked up.
He sat down next to me. "Truth or dare." I blinked. Was he serious?
"Tru or false. You have a sister." I looked into his green eyes and they were deadly serious. A almost lied, I truly did. But i felt like I owed him something.
"I do." He nodded.
I paused. "Who really is Mrs. Carrier?" Now it was hiim turn to pause.
"My personal asstiant."
"Truth." We went on like this for a while, both of us learnig truths about eachother, I learn his favorite color is blue (like mine which he learned), and both of our favorite ice cream flavors are that vanialla with the carmal swirls.
Then he got to the big question. "Ok... I heard you over the phone..." I almost slapped him but he rabbed my hand. "Who was the other person.
"Yes, twin sister........Uh, Daniell."
I almost told him. I almost did alot of things. "Yeah. Can we just not do this now?" I stood up, the sweatpants I was wearing hanging low on my hips. I crossed my arms in the sweatshirt I was wearing earlier. Nico's eyes scanned me, and I rolled my eyes.
"What would you like to do?" he asked. I looked around, the L-shaped couch, the large thing the TV was sitting on and the masive flatscreen to mention. THe bookshelfs on the side, and the intricate painting. Then I spied the open doorway were I could just see the counters of a kitchen.
"ICE CREAM!" I shouted and bolted for the kitchen, bumping my leg on the ottoman, and falling face forward. Nico caught me, but I just ran to the kitchen, hopping there on one, then two, then one leg. Please, I"m sure you've done it before.

Opening the freezer door, I grabbed all the Ice Cream in there (14 containers. I didn't say anything much). Then I opened the other side, and grabbed the chocolate sauce and carmal, then raided his pantry for gummy worms, gummy bears, graham crackers, M&M's, and Recee's Pieces.
I set everything on the counter, Nico just starring at me. Then I opened all his cabinets and found the biggest bowl I could.
"Is your name really Danni?" I looked up from finding an ice-cream scooper.
"Sure. Now. Do you know what I'm doing?" I asked, gesturing around me.
"Making a mess of my kitchen?" I laughed.
"No silly. I"m making an ICE CREAM SUNDEA MELTDOWN!!" i shouted like a wrestler's voice.
Nico gave me a strange look, and leaned against the counter.
"Its what my sister and i do when were home alone and have nothing better to do. Lame right?"
He nodded. "Extremly."
So I showed him how to make the ICSM. You took two scoops of every ice cream, then drizzle how ever much chocolate and carmal sauce ontop, then the candy, then the graham crackers, and after finding some banana's, I sliced 3 of them up and tossed them on top.
"Tada!" I gestured to the melting mess in front of me, my sticky hands dripping with ice cream and crumbs.
"Delicious!Now get a spoon we are having a James Bond marathon movie!" His eyes lit up, and he ran out wiht the ice cream and two spoons.

We sat on the couch, the bowl of ice cream between us. I would never admit this to her, but I was having a really good time. We were sitting in the dark, and I knew Mrs. Carrie was holed-up in her room.
Yes, I lied when she asked me who she really was. Mrs. Carrier is actually my aunt. My mom is away in Venice visting my uncle who is slowy dieing- her brother. My dad is somewhere watching me grow up on TV. My older sister is at Harvard studying law. She's engaged, and I'm stuck here with my unmarried aunt, whose real name is Miss Jane Carrier.
"My name is Bond. James Bond." Danni said with the actor.
"Danni?"SHe looked at me, slowly pulling the spoon out of her mouth.
"What?' she asked through ice cream, it sounding more like whaaaw.
"Are you Alex?"
