Arielle: Convincing the Wimp

The fact the Aaron time froze me probably pissed me off more than anything. There was part of me that wished I didn’t get into that argument with him. But part of me wanted to scream at him for being such an idiot. And of course, he just left the lunch table to go chase after Jessie.

“What’s up with him?” Leo asked staring at my brother’s receding figure.

“Don’t know and don’t wanna know.” I looked down and began eating again. Tyrone stared at us eating for a moment before he cleared his throat.

“What are you staring at?” I looked at glaring at him, clearing annoyed.

“Uh, nothing." He quickly turned away, trying the hide the fact that he had been caught off guard. Suddenly he stood up and left. I watched him leave the cafeteria like the world revolved around him. "Rude." I muttered.

“Well, I guess it’s just the three of us now.” Emilia said, poking at her food.

“I suppose.” I responded absentmindedly. What was my stupid brother up to? He better not be doing something stupid. I sighed and resumed eating.

A long time ago, I stumbled upon this crazy book with completely insane “facts” written inside and one of them was about how twins or even just siblings had some weird unknown mental connection. Of course, that’s just a complete boogey and we’ve never had this “connection” for the 17 years we’ve been alive. But for some reason, I was feeling it now. Aaron was worried and it wasn’t just normal worried. I stood up and pushed my chair aside.

“I’m gonna go find Aaron. I’ll be right back.” Emilia waved me off with a smile.

“You better be quick.” Leo mumbled gruffly.

I turned and left the cafeteria. Now, if only I had a mental GPS tracking system for where Aaron was, maybe I could just portal there. I shook my head. Sometimes, I really wished that we had been born reversed. That my brother wasn’t the soft hearted one and that I wasn’t the rough overpowering one. Maybe then he would have had an easier time with Jessie. But there was no point contemplating that now. I had to find Aaron first.

I turned down the hallway and exited the mansion, just to see him sitting on the front steps of the house. I sat down besides him.

“Hey.”

He turned and looked at me.

“Hey.”

“Wacha doing?” I said, punching him lightly on the shoulder.

“Nothing.” He mumbled. I frowned.

“Obviously this is not nothing.” I pointed at his downcast face.

“Can you just please leave me alone? I want some quiet time.”

“No.” I crossed my arms. “As your twin sister, I have the complete right to know what the heck is going on that’s making you so upset. Anyways, I think I know what it mostly is.”

“Well, if you know,then why are you asking me?”

“I want to make sure I’m right.”

He rolled his eyes at me. I glared at him.

“Don’t roll your eyes at me! You’re the one that’s upset! I’m just trying to help!”

He shook his head.

“Well, if you really want to help me. Tell, me, from the view of a girl, how’s Tyrone?”

“Pfft, you want to know that? Well I can tell you that. Personally, I think that Tyrone is a dumb idiot who can’t tell what the heck is coming out of his mouth because his stupid little mind is just too dumb to process it.”

He stared at me.

“Jeez Arielle, you make sound like I’m anti social.”

I stared at him confused.

“What?”

“Oh, nothing.” He turned around and faced the lawn. “It’s just... words come too easily for you.”

“Aaron! Don’t say that!”

“But look at me! I’ve had this crush for 3 years. 3 years! And I still haven’t found the courage to admit it.”

I sighed.

“I suppose that is really where we differ. But, you’ll figure it out. I believe in you.” I gave him a wink.

“Woah woah woah, since when did I become god?” He said with a small grin.

“Aaron!” I pushed him a little. Stupid annoying brother. “Now, can we go back and finish our food? I’m hungry.”

“Already? You whale.”

“Shutup. I barely ate anything.” I glared at him before stomping back into the house. Brothers are so annoying.

The End
