The Replacement Exclusive Preview:

Thunder rang out as the storm broke, and ice-cold rain was forced down in the warm night. Evelyn rushed to get under the covered patio to beat the rain.

What a weird place to pick for a talk, she thought. Gardener Crest had plenty of rooms to sit down in and have a nice quiet conversation away from the party. But no. Once again Jasmine had to be dramatic and meet at the pool house that was so far from the house you couldn't even hear the loud music. Just great.

Evelyn walked to the front door of the pool house, and she noticed that it was barely cracked open. When Evelyn pushed the door open, she noticed that all the lights were out, including the ones that lined the ceiling that were always on.

Maybe I misunderstood where she wanted us to meet, Evelyn thought as she called out to the empty pool house, "Jazz? Are you here?"

Evelyn pulled out her cell phone and turned it on. As she heard the door behind her slam closed she looked up, and the light from her phone showed no one in front of her. Then, she saw a shadow from behind. That was when Evelyn heard the soft click of a lock. A cold feeling slithered up her spine as she turned around.

A blonde girl stepped out of the shadows. An involuntary gasp escaped Evelyn's lips as she stared at what looked like her own reflection. Jasmine, she thought, but as the girl took another step forward, Evelyn realized that this wasn't her twin.

This girl wore a long strapless magenta dress, identical to the one Evelyn was wearing. Jasmine was wearing a short cobalt blue dress. The house was completely quiet as she took in the girl before her. How every little detail matched her own.

Evelyn's eyes were wide in shock as she suddenly found herself unable to move. To talk. To breath. She had been expecting Jasmine, but this wasn't Jasmine. Color left her face as she whispered, "You aren't my sister."

"You don't say," replied the girl as she began to smile, but it didn't reach her eyes. They remained cold and hard. "I'm not Jasmine. I'm Evelyn."

Suddenly, Evelyn was aware that the teen in front of her was holding a large butcher knife.

Evelyn began to scan the room trying to find the quickest way to back door before she realized the remodel that blocked the only other exit. There was no way out. She slowly began to walk backwards as she hit something. She slowly reached behind her to feel what she hit, and she realized that she ran herself into a wall. She was trapped.
