It was a beautiful day at the science fair. Cosima was having fun, and while all the guests had their time to speak, Tony couldn’t wait to go home. He couldn’t wait to go paint all the beautiful things he saw there. All the students, on the other hand, were thrilled during break time, and they were talking about what they had learnt and the presenters who hand impressed them.

During the break time, while Cosima and Tony were on their way to the cafeteria, Cosima decided to take a detour into ladies bathroom. Right after Cosima stepped into the bathroom, Crystal walked past Tony. Tony did not see her face, but he saw that she was walking like his sister.

The girl was the same size and height as Cosima, and Toni thought it was her leaving him because she was naughty. The only difference between the girl and Cosima was the clothes she was wearing. But, instead of thinking that it was not Cosima, Tony thought Cosima had changed into other clothes because she did not want to walk with him anymore because she called him a nuisance.

Toni screamed at the girl walking past him, and while Tony was shouting “Cosima” to the girl walking past him, Cosima walked out of the bathroom.

“What is it with you, you nuisance?” Cosima asked. “I’m right here, so there’s no need to shout.”

“Wait a minute,” Tony said. “Who’s that girl?”

“Which girl?” Cosima asked. “What are you talking about?”

“Cosima, somebody with your height, body size and also walks like you just walked by,” Tony said.

“There you go again being crazy as always,” Cosima said.

“I’m going after her,” Tony said, already pushing people to the side to make way.

When Toni was an arm’s length away from the girl who looked like his sister, he grabbed her shoulder in an attempt to make her look back to him, and after grabbing her shoulder, he deliberately called her Cosima.

When the girl turned around to look at the person grabbing her by the shoulder, all the person said was “OMG”, then he embraced the floor. In that moment, Cosima was already close by. Without looking at the person next to her, she knelt down already calling Tony’s name.

“Tony come on, wake up,” Cosima said. “What’s wrong with you? Stop this madness and let’s go grab lunch. Lunch time is almost over.”

When Tony did not respond, Cosima figured that he really did faint. She then heard a voice that sounded like hers asking if she knew who Toni was, and on hearing the voice next to her, she looked up and saw herself kneeling down right next to herself.

“Somebody call 112,” Crystal said. “We have a situation.”

In response, another voice said “On it”.

By that time, Crystal was kneeling down with her mouth wide open like she had just seen a ghost. A ghost of herself. Only she was a red head. The words that escaped Cosima’s mouth on seeing her were “Oh My God!”

After a while, Cosima picked herself up without saying another word, and she dialled her mom’s number. Before she could finish her conversation with her mother, she felt a pat on her shoulder.

“Hi, I’m Crystal, and you are?” Crystal said.

“I’m Cosima, and you’re not Crystal, but Sara, my twin sister,” Cosima said.

“What are you talking about?” Crystal asked.

“My mom is not going to believe this,” Cosima said.

“Hello,” Crystal said. “Please fill me in.”

While Crystal and Cosima were talking, the ambulance arrived to take Tony to the hospital.

“Hop in,” Cosima said. “We’ll talk on our way to the hospital.”

Instead of answering, Crystal just stood there motionless, not knowing what to do.

“Come on, this is not human trafficking,” Cosima said. “We’re taking my twin brother, who just fainted because he thinks he just met his other sister, to the hospital. The least you can do is be there when he wakes up.”

“I guess you’re right,” Crystal said while hopping into the ambulance.
