His sister sat in front of him with her eyes glued to the wall. Bambietta looked as bored as he did and likely didn't like the idea that the adults were insisting they get along despite the fact the twins were complete strangers. How this would help the after war effort he didn't know, but he imagined that in her mind he was the enemy. He also doubted they had anything in common. Taking a deep breath he looked at the wall. "So... do you read?"
"As in books?"
"What else would I be talking about?"
"I read Twilight."
A shudder ran down his spine as he remembered the nightmares he had after reading the last book. "I don't like that series."
"Why not? Isn't the sparkling vampires ingenious of the writer? Both Edward and Jacob are hot. I mean... like... haven't you seen the movies."
"No, no and more no. I'm a guy, so that's just sick. I would never want to see the movies. I had enough nightmares after reading the last book. They wanted to abort a monster." Toshiro turned to look at her, his stomach churning with anxiety. The girl had turned to look at him as well.
"You don't take sarcasm very well, do you." Bambietta sighed, reaching a hand up to absentmindedly twist at a strand of hair. "Actually... what was that reaction to aborting that stupid hybrid creature that shouldn't even exist."
Toshiro felt his breath catch in his throat. "You... you think that mother and father should have aborted me? Or do you think that the Quincy tossing me out was the right thing... if that's what happened?"
Two purple eyes blinked a couple of times as the girl frowned. "This has nothing to do with the character from the book. You had nightmares because you have issues."
"Do you have a problem with that? Actually... you likely think it is funny!"
Silence fell over the room and Toshiro wished to have some way to escape the room. Bambietta however continued to stare at him, making it so that he couldn't move. He swallowed, not at all sure how she would react. She finally looked away, still playing with her hair. "I do have a problem with what you said to me. I don't think what you said is funny. I think it is down right disturbing."
"So you do think of me as a freak."
The girl turned to look at him. "Not in the way you think I do."
"Come on. Having a brother with the opposite powers you do is kind of freaky." When he didn't respond to her or look at her and continued. "You know... I always wondered where you were all these years. I know you don't remember me, but I remember you. I admit they didn't care, but you're my twin and my other half."
"You don't hate me?"
"No. You apparently like to read more then I do, so do you have suggestions?"
