Who Are the dopplegangers

Who Are The Doppelgängers? By CpSingleton © 2015 (Part 7)


‘I can’t imagine that anyone would go around impersonating us, sweetie,’ Jess whispered in reply. Despite her reassurances to Karl she felt oddly anxious. ‘She must be mistaken.’

‘And the old folk?’

‘Like you said: they’re old and confused.’

‘We need to find these Doppler-thingies. I want to see them for myself.’



‘You said Doppler-thingies and its Doppelgängers. It’s German. Doppler was an Austrian ph…’

‘I don’t care if it’s dee-dop-diddley-wop, Jess. I just wanna find these freaks and see for myself. If they do look exactly like us we could make a fortune!’


‘Magicians or marathon runners!’ He replied with a grin.

‘I can understand magicians, but you lost me with marathon runners.’

‘Just think about it: one Doppler-thingy sets off for a couple of miles and is replaced by the other down the course. Bham! All the other fruit-bats’ll be running the twenty-odd miles and we’d be jogging half that. Simples!’

‘You’re an idiot,’ Jess laughed.

‘Some would say idiot; others would say genius,’ Karl shrugged.

‘There we go, my loves,’ the assistant called over the counter, holding out two packs of wrapped meat. ‘Can I help you with anything else?’

‘Yeah,’ Karl replied, snatching the goods. ‘Do you know which way the other two of us went?’

‘Your Doppelgängers?’ The assistant, whose name badge read Elsie, asked. 

‘The very same,’ Karl replied, trying to keep the irritation from his voice, when all he wanted to do shout in her over-smiley face.

‘Well, I’m not really sure. They may have wandered over to the baby aisle or the beans aisle. I’m sorry.’

‘No worries. Thank you, erm Elsie. They can’t be a good us if they went to the baby aisle,’ he said to Jess with a grin.

Jess smiled the best smile she could. She knew that mentioning babies to Karl was like suggesting Carlisle United were selling up and shutting down. The panic in him would ruin the next week. If she had any chance of having a child with him, she would have to slowly make him think it was his idea. Therefore, she smiled at him: for now.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
