I looked straight before me as I walked hand in hand with my twin brother through a dark alley. The ground was odd and there laid pieces of trash in the corners of the old houses. I saw some people peeking at us as they whispered things about us to the others. Things like witches or children of the Devil. We were the Witch Twins. No, we weren't real witches, but how much we tried to convince them how more suspicious they became. Even our parents thought of us like that, even if they didn't show that. I could see it in their eyes when they look at us.
I turned my head to look at my twin brother, Alec. We were from the same height and we looked almost exactly like each other. The only difference was that his hair was a little bit darker and my lips were fuller. I couldn't say about myself if I really was beautiful, but Alec looked like an Angel. He was beautiful. So I guess that I was kind of beautiful too. Though, nobody could compare his or hers beauty to Alec, but that was the way I thought about him. Maybe others didn't think he was as beautiful as I saw him. Not that it really shocked me, they thought we were witches, but Alec and I knew better. He was the only one I had, the only one who showed his love for me and the only one who I could love. He was there always for me and I was there always for him.
It all started the day our mother gave birth to us. Two little babies. A boy and a girl, called Alec and Jane. Because we lived in a small village, everyone knew about the birth of the Witch Twins. It wasn't normal to give birth to twins. It was odd and awkward. It rarely happened. They thought that we were doomed because we were born together. Was that fair? Was it fair that everyone hated you and thought you're doomed just because you're a twins. I don't think so, but that was only because I knew better.
I don't had any magic powers, nor Alec. I couldn't let other people fly or let animals talk or something. But sometimes, sometimes I wish that I could. I wish I could let them feel the pain they're causing me. The pain they're causing Alec. I hated seeing Alec suffering. He was always the protective one; he saw himself as my protector, given the fact that there was nobody else to protect me. He was the man and he always tried to stand up for me. He even had a fight with a boy because he was scolding at me. I loved Alec for that, but I just hated to see him suffering because of me. Yes, he was older. Yes, he was a boy. But I was just two minutes younger and a girl could stand up for herself too. Though, a boy never fight a girl. It shows weakness for the boy and that would cause damage for his "reputation".
Alec and I never really had any friends. We only had each other, but sometimes it wasn't enough. Don't get me wrong, we loved each other dearly and Alec was the most important person in the world for me, it's just that sometimes I wish I had a friend. Someone I could play with, other than Alec. I knew that Alec thought the same. He always wanted to have a friend were he could play ball with or some other boy activity. Though I'm not a girly girl, I wished that I had a friend were I could play with the dolls with or something else girly. But there was no kid in this village, maybe on this earth. who wanted to play with us. Who wanted to come near us. Every mother or father warned his or hers child about the Witch Twins. They didn't dare to come near us. They only talked to us to scold to us or something. I never showed it, but it truly hurt me. Alec was the only one who knew about my pain and I was the only one who knew about his. It would never change, Alec and I will never have anyone else except for each other. Sometimes it wasn't enough, but sometimes it was enough. We don't know what our future what will happen in the future to us. The only thing we knew for sure that we were, and always will be, the Witch Twins.
