When I was younger, people would always mistake Ella and I for one another, which nowadays I find hard to believe. We're were so different, not just personality wise but in looks too. Ella had long wavy hair that reached to her waist, whereas mine just reached passed my shoulders and was straight most of the time (thank god for straighteners!) She was skinny and was around five foot seven, I was average and was around five foot nine. And lastly, but not least, she had chocolate brown doe eyes and I had bright crystal blue eyes.
And we're twins.
Don't get me wrong, we do look alike; we have the same face, eyes, nose, ear shapes. I mean, if you just looked at our faces with our eyes closed, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. But thanks to the differences I listed out, you would.
Our personalities were totally different; where Ella would rather stay home and read a book, I would chill out with friends. She was more of a open book, whereas I could easily hide my emotions and thoughts. She was not confronting person and I would shout in people's faces.
We're kind of like yin and yang in that aspects, which is why I love my sister enough to go through with this stupid plan.
You see, our mother remarried a man named Phil and surprisingly enough, I liked Phil, so did Ella. But the only bad thing about the relationship was that Phil was always travelling due to his job. Seeing how much this upset our mother, Ella came up with a plan.
Ella came to me with the plan a few weeks back and I didn't know why but I found myself agreeing to the plan, soon finding myself about to board a flight to Forks, Washington, to live with our birth father, Charlie Swan.
I wasn't very into this plan as Ella was, as she thought it would be a great opportunity to spend some quality time with our father before we went to college. I happened to disagree, why would I want to spend time with the man who nearly missed out on all of our childhood? Yeah, we saw him a couple of times in the summer but it wasn't the same as actually being their for your children.
"Girls" our mother muttered just before we were about to board the plane, grabbing both our hands. "You two don't have to do this."
Ella gave a graceful smile towards our mother and pulled her into a hug, their last hug. As they pulled out of the hug, Ella stated "I want to."
Then mom turns to me, tears shining in her eyes. It pained me to see her like this, but I know it also pained her not to be with Phil properly and well, she has sacrificed a lot for us in the last seventeen years.
So, forcing a smile on my lips, "Me too." I lied through my teeth. She could tell I was lying, but pulls me into a hug anyway, tears rolling down her cheeks.
"Tell Charlie I said hi."
I pulled away from the hug and linked arms with Ella, whom said "We will."
"I'll see you two soon," she insisted. "You can come home whenever you want - I'll come right back as soon as you need me."
I knew though if we came back, then she would have to go back to not being with Phil properly.
"Don't worry about us," I stated, holding tighter onto my sister next to me. "We'll look out for each other."
Ella smiled sadly, "Love you mom."
After one last group hug, both Ella and I got on the plane, knowing it was the right thing to do.
Throughout the four-hour flight from Phoenix to Seattle, I was bored out of my mind. I tried drawing and even playing games on my phone, but nothing could keep me entertained like that book was doing for Ella.
