The two girls meet eachother... But why? And what are the consequences?
"Bye dad," she said, laughing as he squeezed her tightly and wished her good luck. The clock on the kitchen wall said she was 5 minutes late. Great, Charity thought, I'm going to be late on my first day of school. Juliet looked at herself in the mirror with satisfaction. Luckily, she had had time to go to the hairdressers the day before after buying her school things. The uniform annoyed her but she knew that she would be able to pull it off. She pushed her hair out of her face as her mother called her for breakfast. Waffles, she thought with disgust, I'd rather have a salad for breakfast than those disgusting pieces of fat.
"Hurry up, Jules! You don't want to be late for school on your first day!" her mother shouted.
"Yeah, yeah, I'm coming!" She replied. Half an hour later she was sitting in the baby pink car she had gotten for her birthday just before they moved to Riverview. She remembered throwing a tantrum for not getting the red convertible she had wanted, but now realised that a red convertible would've been too expensive together with the expenses of the college. Charity stood in a small group of teenagers infront of a stern looking man. Already, some of them had said behind her back that she looked tacky. The only one she'd gotten a smile from was a blue haired girl who she recognised as Suzie Jeffers, the daughter of the Mayor. Another one, a blonde, she knew was Perpetua Pearls, who insisted she was the neice of the queen. The boy she didn't recognise.
"And that was how Phillipe Trez founded the school. You may now go to your lessons," the man ended. Charity stayed behind for a second.
"Would you happen to know where the toilet is, please?" She asked.
"Of course, dear. Just down that corridor over there, first door to the right," he explained.
"Thanks," she said, and made her way down to the bathroom. Juliet ran down the inner courtyard of the school, she was late and she knew it, but she didn't mind. She had heard from someone that when you were early you had to listen to some boring speech from the headmaster, and she wasn't in the mood for that. "Hello, and who might you be?" an elderly man asked as she walked in through the door.
"My name is Juliet Suns. Please accept my apologies for being late, sir, but I had some problems," Juliet replied.
"Yes yes, well, you best go to your lessons. And I am Mr Yung, the headmaster. Now, chop chop!" he said. But instead of going to her first class, she walked straight to the bathroom. She had noticed through her reflection in the window that her hair had been messed up a bit. She scowled at the bathroom door as she heard a flush. Great, she wasn't alone. As she looked at herself in the mirror, she saw someone stepping out of the toilet and thought she was dreaming. The girl that looked strangely like her looked at her strangely.
"Who are you? And why do you look so much like me?" the girl whispered, scared.
"I am Juliet Suns. And who the hell are you?"
"I'm Charity Paystone. Is this supposed to be some kind of joke? Making me scared by making someone look freakishly like me?"
"I don't exactly know... But what I do know is that you must be some kind of clone of me. I know! We must be separated twins!" Juliet exclaimed, excited at her discovery.
"Okay... That's weird... I never thought I'd be related to the daughter of the most famous actor ever," Charity said, uncertain of what to think.
"Oh, don't worry. We should go to my house after school and ask my mother about it. She knows everything!"
Charity thought this was stupid and something a seven year old, not a seven-teen year old would say, but she didn't complain. She had always wanted to know who her mother was and this was her opportunity to find out.
"Fine," she replied.
