“You two scrub up nice!” my grandmother reached up to pinch my cheek. I was two meters tall and had to hunch over so she could keep pinching my cheek like she had done since I was born.
“You two look so…” My mother looked at me and my twin brother with tears in her eyes. “So handsome.”
“Did we really have to have matching suits?” I sighed, still annoyed about my parents going out to buy the clothes without our knowledge.
My father stood with the camera to snap another fifty photos of us. I rolled my eyes at me brother and he smirked in reply. “Let them have their moment,” he said. Always the peace-keeper.
I sighed and straightened up for the photo. I tried my best to give my most genuine smile. But I wasn’t excited for tonight. Going to our end of year formal was going to be full of “You two look so alike!” statements. But I was done always being compared and connected to my look-a-like. I was excited to finally start my own path at university. I would no longer be a second half, I would be a whole piece. My own piece.
