Twins

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.

  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.
