Who Are The Doppelgängers? By CpSingleton © 2015 (Part 10)


By the time they had walked the short distance to their car they were already dripping with rain. They quickly and silently packed the tiny boot and then climbed into their seats, slipping along the leather.

Neither said anything until the engine was revving and the heater was blasting hot air on to wet their feet. It didn’t mean that no words were being said. Karl was being bitten over and over, like he had an irritated midge in his skull, telling him he was being daft. The thick vein of pride that ran from his stomach and along his spine, however, was barring the door to his vocal chords, until…

‘You’re right,’ Karl flatly stated as he reversed the vehicle from the spot and headed towards the petrol station at the edge of the car park, joining the snaking queue.

‘About what?’

‘This crap about twins. It’s stupid.’

‘Well,’ Jess conceded, ‘after that many people tell you you’ve got a bloody twin somewhere up ahead you are bound to question it.’


They edged slowly towards the petrol station entrance in relative silence. The pitter-patter of rain drops on the small windscreen becoming hypnotic.

‘Music?’ Jess asked.

‘Yeah, before I nod off.’

She flicked the CD player’s on switch to the sound of Mumford and Son and breathed a long sigh.

‘There’s Vossy’s twin,’ Karl laughed.

The identical Mini, right down to the white bonnet stripes and extra headlamps, Karl had earlier thought was theirs, left the forecourt as they entered.

Sitting in the two front seats, calmly chatting, much to the shock of Karl and Jess, were their very twins.


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.
