They don't know the truth. They think she died of cancer and he died of grief. I would suppress a smile as they said they were sorry. I would merely accept it and move on.

Everynight they visited. Telling me to keep going and finishing my studies. My sister would never get this. Said I could tell people the secret beacuse it wouldn't matter anymore. I held on to their words and trained myself to be like them.

I improved my critical thinking to be as good as his' and trained to be as swift as she. One day, I would be fit to join them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He wouldn't listen. It didn't matter. My brother was still enduring in school so I let him keep his hopes high. My brother said they visited everynight. I say he's just dreaming.

At first I believed, I let my hopes rise. But it soon became clear when he talked to himself at nights. I even checked on him to make sure I wasn't mistaken. But the truth was there, they were gone. The piece of paper on the dining table just made it more the real.

It was left there by a stranger who claimed to be friends. He said he was sorry for our loss but he would never trully understand what it is like until it happened to him. I remember as clear as day. They left together. The cover story would be she died of cancer and he grieved to death. We kissed goodbye and bid farewell.

The man came around two months later with that paper. It confirmed their deaths, making them more than just cover stories. They followed their two bosses orders and went to the job together. They knew it was a trap, but dared to believe they were tricking themselves.

So what is the secret?

Mum was a secret agent and dad worked for the FBI. That was the big secret. They went on a mission and never came back.
