I rubbed the piece of plaster, laid out the tools and headed to bed for an early start on my project.

The next morning I opened the door and stared. My block of plaster had two heads carved on it. On the side was a heart. I started to cry and Nicky said, “Don’t cry Cassie I made the two of us so we will never be separated.”

“Oh, Nicky.” Nicky is my twin, but he was damaged during birth and in his mind he thinks he can keep us together by making a double bust of us.


The prompt this week comes twice from Claire Fuller; both photo and artwork.


About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    Such a sad, sweet story.


  2. Aaaaawww, what a sweet thing for him to do, although I’m sure there was a large part of her that felt bad that he ruined her project.



  3. Sounds like while Nicky’s damaged he’s got some talent. A savant maybe? Nice one.

    For Nicky the truth is simple. He wants to know he can always have his sister close. Very touching idea for the post.

    How sweet, but sad at the same time. If only it were that simple 🙂
