Dark Side of the Truth
Chapter 1 ~ The Folder ~
the newspaper. ”Hey momma can I ask you a question? ” I asked. ”Whats wrong dear? ” asked momma as she closed her book. ”Are you alright darling? ” papa asked putting down the newspaper. ”Im perfectly fine, but I do have a question that you both might want to listen to! ” I replied with a little sass. ”Would you like to tell me who Ashtyn is and why you are hiding the letters she wrote and her birth certificate from me? ” I said as I slammed the folder down on the coffee table in front of them with enough force to break it in half.
My parents were in shock at what I was asking. They didn know how to answer my questions. I looked back at Iris for support or for her to say anything but she kept quiet and stood against the wall with her arms folded in front of her. Finally one of them spoke up, ”Well Ashtyn is your twin sister and both of you are, well unique. The only reason she isn here now is because- ” momma started saying until papa interrupted ”We can tell her here remember, its supposed to be a secret. We also can tell her. ” papa said while pointing at Iris.
”Its fine I can leave, I probably need to go home anyway.
” Iris quickly said as she stepped away from the wall and gathered her things.
”No, if you
e telling me then you
e gonna tell her too. ” I replied quickly before Iris could leave. My parents were startled by my out burst and I continued. ”She is my best friend, she deserves to know just as much as I do. I would probably just tell her after you tell me anyway so why not make it easier on the both of us. ” I continued.
”Fine but we need both of you to follow us or we can tell either of you. ” papa said standing up quickly. Momma started hurrying us towards a closet in the hallway. ”Why are we going to a closet? ” I asked.
”Be patient! You will have to wait and see! ”
