Kelvin looked at Kyle with anger raging in him, Kyle stared back at him and smiled. "Hello brother" kyle said breaking the silence. Kelvin shut his eyes "what issue those today have with me" he thought. "Good to see you, brother" he replied Kyle. "can someone explain what's going on here?" Valerie asked almost shouting. Kyle looked at her and smiled "Hi everyone, I'm Kyle, Kelvin's twin brother" he said waving at them "and very identical one at that" Veronica said "wait this is confusing, when did you come into town?" Grace asked. Angie seems to be lost in thoughts, unable to alter any word. "Well, I came to town the same time as Kelvin, and I have lived here as long as him too. In fact I have met some of you and you have met me too." Kyle said still smiling "which one of us, how and when?" Valerie asked. "Yeah. I met you, Veronica, the day you have me your number to call you, you know at the market. That was me not Kelvin. Then you, Valerie, when you came to my house looking for Kelvin, I apologize for what happened but that was me. And Angie, we have known the longest, I came to clean at your house most times. I know the boys and they know me too." Kyle explained "so you guys knew about this?" Grace said turning to Jacob and Brian. "Just you that I don't know" Kyle said referring to grace "yeah and thank God I wasn't fooled" she said "hey Angie, why aren't you saying anything?" Kyle asked. Kelvin stared at Kyle intently, shook his head and walked away to direction of the school field. "Where are you going to, aren't you going to say something or explain?" Valerie called after him. He continued walking, paying no attention to what she was saying. The bell rang for the end of launch break. "I guess that's us" Brian said tapping Jacob for them to go to class "don't go anywhere , we have questions for you" Veronica said as she and grace followed suit in going to class, leaving Angie and Valerie there.

"Why?" Angie finally asked "it was all kelvin's plan from the start" Kyle replied "what do you mean plan?" Valerie asked "he said he wanted to make Angie fall in love with him and then make her pay for her arrogance, rudeness and pride and that it would made it easier if I was in the plan" Kyle explained "so what made you change your mind?" Angie asked "because I fell in love with you" Kyle replied "was this before or after you kissed me?" Valerie asked "that was just to not blow the plan" Kyle said "wow so we are not but just part of a plan to you guys?" Valerie said "I hope you guys get what you want" she added, leaving them and going to class. "so were you the one or was it Kelvin that I first kissed?" Angie asked looking glum "it was me" Kyle replied "wow! Congratulations you guys did it" Angie said, tears gathering in her eyes. She turned and walked away. Kyle stood watching her leave, he knew all the cards were on the table now and he was sure to get Angie, no matter the cost.

Kelvin sat at the side of the field, not minding that class was going on. Thinking about how everything is going to be now. He thought it was going to be easier than this "I definitely have fallen for angie, that much is clear but right now she is definitely going to hate me and same goes for Valerie. Today isn't my day" he thought.

"So it was all a joke to you. You must have seen me as a fool" Angie said as she approached Kelvin. 

Kelvin stood up facing her "no it wasn't" he said "it was just to break me right?! Well you got what you wanted" she said "you knew I  kissed your brother thinking it was you and you did nothing. What about this on my hand, was it still Kyle that bought it for me?" She asked pointing to the hand chain she was wearing."No. That was me, I bought it, it was you and I that day" Kelvin replied "did you ever even felt anything for me or was it just an act?" Angie asked "it was an act initially but..." Kelvin stopped as Angie cut him off "well you did it, I fell in love with you or is it Kyle, I don't which one of you but congratulations." She concluded walking away. "Angie!!!" Kelvin called after her but no response. Angie walked into the class, carried her bag and went home, not feeling good enough to attend the rest of the classes.

Lectures for the day ended and students trooped out of their classes. Kelvin hesitated for a while, letting most of his classmates leave the class. Valerie was about to leave when he called her "hey Val, can I talk to you" he walked up to her seat "there's nothing you need to say, it's all clear now. You knew I kissed your brother and you didn't say anything, you didn't even trust me enough to tell me the truth and to top it all, you have feelings for Angie. So I'm sorry if I don't want to talk" she replied, Kelvin looked around and saw some of their classmates looking at them "I'm sorry but you should here my side of it" he said lowering his voice "it won't change a thing. I'm sorry I don't think I can do this anymore. I can't be in a relationship where you have feelings for someone else. It's over I'm sorry" she concluded, grabbed her bag and left the class. Kelvin sat back down on his seat looking frustrated. 

Kelvin got home and found Kyle in his room getting ready to leave the house "getting ready to cause more damage?" Kelvin asked "nahh, just going to clean at Angie's house" Kyle replied smiling "you must be proud of yourself, your plans are succeeding" Kelvin said "I told you I'm not going to give up on Angie and I'm going to do whatever it takes" he replied. "Congratulations" Kelvin concluded and left the room.

Jessica knocked on the door but no response, she opened the door and found Angie lying down on the bed "Hey z, you haven't spoken to anyone since you came back from school and you haven't eaten too, dad and I have been worried" she said sitting close to where she was lying. "I'm just tired that's all" she muttered "you came back from school earlier than usual, something is definitely up, tell me what is it?" Jessica asked. Angie raised up her head and looked at her sister "it turns out I was fooled and I was just a game" Angie replied "what do you mean?" Jessica asked confused. "Apparently, Kelvin has a twin, kyle and they have been substituting to come clean here" she explained, confused at what Angie just said , Jessica sat well "what do you mean twin?" Jessica asked. When a knock sounded from the door, "come in" Jessica invited. Kyle walked in "good evening" he greeted Jessica "oh Kelvin" she said "erm... nope, Kyle" he said feeling a bit uncomfortable not knowing how Jessica will react to the new development. Jessica examined him for a while mesmerized by the uncanny resemblance. "So you have been here before?" She finally said "yes, same as Kelvin" he replied "and why didn't you guys say anything?" Jessica asked "it's kind of a long story" he replied "well I hope to hear it sometime but for now let me leave you guys alone, I'm on nightshift today" she replied getting up to leave and patting Angie on the leg. 

"What do you want?" Angie asked as Jessica left the room "I just came to make sure you are alright, if you have any more questions and to apologise" Kyle replied

"Well I'm alright, no questions and I don't need your apology" she retorted.

"I know you are not and I'll be here till you are ready to talk about it" he said sitting close to her. She rolled her eyes "what else do you guys want from me? Haven't you gotten what you wanted?" She asked "to be clear it wasn't what I wanted" he replied "but you played along with it" she said "and that's why I came to apologize, I made a mistake playing along and for not backing out soon and for that I'm sorry" he apologize "and you allowed me to kiss you thinking it was Kelvin" she said "I wanted to tell you, so much but I didn't know when was the right time to do it" he explained "and what made you decide now was the right time?" Angie asked "because I realized am in love with you" he replied. She stared at him not knowing what else to say. "Say something please" he said "what do you want me to say?" She asked "anything please" he replied "that doesn't change the fact that the both of you used me" she said "and I'll keep apologizing for that till you can forgive me" he replied

"Tell me this, when we spent time together and when Kelvin and I spent time together" She said.

"Well the day we talked about the kind of person we are and we are not, that was with me" he replied "what about the day at the market at your area?" She said wanting to confirm if what Kelvin said was true "I think that was with Kelvin" he replied

"Okay I think I have heard enough for today" she concluded. "Are you still mad at me?" He asked "yeah pretty much" she replied getting up from the bed. 

"Where is Kelvin now?" She asked "at home" he replied "so I guess it's your turn to clean now" she said "yeah" he replied "I think I should go start before it gets late" he added leaving the room.

Kelvin got to school, he checked his watch it was already time for the first class, "I have never been this late before" he thought. He stepped into the class and everyone was staring at him, the news of him having an identical twin has spread and you can see that they were wanting to ask questions. He could tell that it was either that or it was because he had changed his hairstyle. He had cut his hair the previous day, he thought that there was no reason to be carrying the same hairstyle as Kyle now that the cat is out of the bag, this would made it easier to differentiate them now. He walked into the class greeting the teacher who was already unraveling the content of his topic. "And why are you just coming to school young man?" The teacher asked. "I'm sorry sir, it won't happen again" he replied "it better not, go to your sit" he said adjusting the glasses he wore. Kelvin walked and sat on his seat, "whoa man, what's with the new hairstyle?" Jacob asked turning back to face him "just felt like changing something about me, and it's easier to differentiate between me and Kyle now* he replied. "That's cool" Jacob said. "Mr Man do you want to leave the class?" The teacher asked pointing at Jacob "sorry sir" Jacob said. Angie who had been witnessing the while thing since Kelvin came into, felt very angry at him and felt a bit of sadness too, she couldn't understand why and decided to wave it off.

Kelvin walked towards the shade close to the school field upon sighting Angie and her friends. He got to where they were and was greeted by the cold atmosphere "hey!" He said waving to the three of them "hey" grace replied "nice hairstyle, it fits you more" Veronica said. "Thanks" he replied them "hey Angie" he said facing her. "Yes, anything?" She asked rather rudely. 

"can I talk to you?" Kelvin asked not minding her harsh tone. "Talk, I can hear you" she retorted. 

"I mean alone" he said "I'm not going anywhere so if you have something to say, say it here" she said. "Alright..." Kelvin said, looking at her friends, he felt nervous "I wanted...I wanted to...erm... apologize for everything" he stammered  nervously. Veronica and grace burst out laughing, "wait, is this Kelvin?" Veronica said mockingly amidst laugh "that's new" grace added. Kelvin felt embarrassed and wished the ground would just opened up and swallow him. 

"let me ask you something, if Kyle hadn't exposed ur plans or secret, would you still had continued?" Angie asked 

Not knowing what would have happened, Kelvin struggled with the answer "I don't know, maybe, maybe not".

"Well apology not accepted. If you were as good as Kyle, you would have apologized yesterday and you would have ended the plan yourself" she said harshly. "I tried apologizing but you didn't allow me" said Kelvin "Kyle came to my house to do it and his apology was more sincere than yours. I think you are apologizing not because you are sorry but because you got caught" Angie said rudely. "That might be true" grace said. "Kyle did the right thing not you. Sorry" Veronica added. "Wow...you all think Kyle is better than me. Just wait till you get to know him" Kelvin retorted and stormed off. They watched as he walked to the direction of the class angrily. "Maybe his apology was sincere" grace with a shrug. "or maybe he is just good at acting. Anyway, Angie, who do you like more between both of them, because they seem to like" Veronica said. Angie hesitated for a while, like she was thinking about it "I don't know but definitely not Kelvin" she replied. "Which means it's definitely Kyle" Veronica said laughing. "but who do you both think is cuter?" She asked again. "well I haven't seen Kyle like that but from what I have seen I think Kelvin is" grace said "yeah me too" Veronica added as they both turned to Angie for her answer "I don't know.." Angie said avoiding their eyes.
