“It was here, in the city of Brotherly Love, at twenty-eight years of age, that Lucy Gears first discovered she had a sister.
An identical twin. Of course it wasn’t true. A joke, a hoax a prank. As if.
It was completely ridiculous, and although she of all people appreciated a good Gotcha! she didn’t have time for games today. She had to buy an anniversary gift for her boyfriend, Alan, then race off to paint a chubby Chihuahua and its anorexic owner. An identical twin. Funny, ha-ha.”
They say that the first lines of a piece of writing, are always the most difficult to set down on paper. It seems to me, that they may also be the most definitive, as I find they often set the scene in my mind, even before I have turned the first page… and it is quite disappointing if they don’t…
I wonder just why Lacey is so sure that she doesn’t have a twin sister?
How has she found out about this sister, that has immediately forced her to dimiss it out of hand, as a hoax or a joke?
There is nothing for it, but to read on and find out!!
