Chapter 18 

As it turns out dad had noticed the chance between Lola and I. Which was surprising because I would have said that mum would have been more likely to notice.

I was sitting in my room. After my dad had hung up I went home. Of course, Andrew had heard the whole conversation and therefore knew that Lola and my dad were on their way here.

Dad had said that it would be better for me to break the news to mum before they got here. I just couldn't think of how to say it. Like what do you say in these situations? 'Hi I know I have a twin. In fact, I have met her and actually know that we are talking about it I have been living with my dad for the past year while you have been living with my twin'

I was getting thirsty so I headed down to the kitchen but just my luck, as soon as I got to the bottom of the stairs my mum walked through the door.

"Why did you never tell me about Lola?" I blurt. Shit. That wasn't what I meant to say.

"How do you know about her?" She said. She didn't even try and deny it. Well, at least we will get to the answer quicker now.

I decided now that I have started the conversation I might as well finish it. So I told her everything. From meeting her in London to switching places and finally to coming back because of Jane.

To say she looked shocked would be an understatement. We were now sitting in the sitting room. She was just staring at me with her eyes full of shock and hurt, her mouth hanging open. She was sitting up straight with her hands crossed.

And finally, when I told her about Dad and Lola coming she stood up and walked out of the room without saying a word.

Even though I haven't lived with her for the past year I knew what was coming.


There goes the vase in the hall.


And there goes a stool that sat in the kitchen.

She walked into the room again looking very calm and sat down.

No one talked for at least ten minutes. The silence was broken by a knock on the door. As she didn't make a move to answer it I did.

"Dad!" I shouted when I saw him standing on the step. He didn't look happy but he pulled me into a bear hug.

After a few moments dad froze. I pulled back and looked over my shoulder to see mum standing there.

"Hello." Dad said.

"Hi." Mum said, making her first word since I told her.
