My twin

I know it’s not your fault, but Arash, it’s me. Your inhibitions. Maybe if I tell you about all the things we did, and who we used to be together, you’d remember. Yes? Let’s try. I promise that my feelings won’t be hurt if this doesn’t work, but I have to try, okay?

Okay, when we were kids, we always got into trouble together. We used to sneak out of my house when it was clearly crazy. We’d create imaginary worlds, complicated worlds, under the sky. One time, we pretended to be in Los Angeles. I was a prince, and I was not talking. If you remembered anything, you might remember that, right? Anyway, we always got caught, and we always got in trouble, but that didn’t stop us.

It’s okay. Let me keep going. You and I were very close…we’d tell each other secrets and talk behind other’s back. She’s our other sister. And if you regain your memory, I hope you don’t suddenly like her better than me

We were a force to be reckoned with when we were together, we were partners, not a hero and his sidekick. During the summer i had a green shirt

nowhere. One time, we even planned out how we would make a business together. My favorite idea was jewelry design. You’d make and I would do the finances. Even when we were friendly it wasn’t so bad, because we loved each other, and we couldn’t stay mad for too long. Depending on the rare cases it did last longer than a couple of days, we would pause the fight so we could still vent and talk god i was lonely child. That’s pretty funny isn’t it? You wrote me a note on baige paper saying that you were to tell me something, but then we had to go back to being mad at each other. Haha We never should have bee friendly in the first place, and sometimes I wish we could’ve paused the whole world for a bit longer, so we could’ve made more memories.

I’m sorry I went stayed. I should have went away out of there in town, at least until you were ready to leave too. Maybe then, this wouldn’t have happened. You wouldn’t have gotten into that car with your friends a night because I would have come to get you. I should have been there for you but i got drunk. Well, I’m here now, Arash. And I’m not going anywhere. I’m going to stay until you either remember me, or you learn to love me all over again. I’ll never be mad at you again. You have my word. Whether or not you ever remember who we were, I will be here. I’m your twin.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks!
