Seventeen years ago, November 2nd 1995, Kendall and Kaeya Knight were born in a small town in Minnesota. Jennifer Knight was overjoyed. Her husband, Richard…. Not so much. Kendall hasn't seen his twin sister in 12 years... erm... kind of... All because of his abusive father.

Before I get started, I would like to say something to my reviewers:
Jeremy Shane: two nice reviews with the same two words at the end of both… More Please. So here you go, it's more! Thanks for reviewing!
Chey21: glad you like it! Thanks for reviewing!
BTRlover1122: Thanks for saying that you love this story! I read the email out loud when I was reading it at lunch and my best friend was like "Is she trying to bribe you to update this story? How could she possibly know Skyscraper is one of your favs?!" (No offence to the other writer's cause I love theirs too) and I said, "Possibly 'cause I favorited and followed that story? And I don't think she's bribing me…." Anyways were you trying to bribe me or something? Cause I wouldn't mind, I haven't updated this in over a week! But you still have to update skyscraper. YOU HAVE TOOOOOOO! Thanks for reviewing!
Mackenzie Oliver: Thanks for thinking it's amazing! I got two emails today, the first one was telling me your review (I thought, "hmmm this person sounds familiar"), the second one was saying that you updated your story, Big Time Twins! (I was like "OHHHHHHHH! Now I know why this person sounds familiar!) BTW, that's a good story so far. Thanks for reviewing!
Now to everyone else: I'm SOOOO sorry that I haven't updated in over a week or possibly two… Just I've been really busy! If it was summer or spring break even, I would probably update once or twice every single day! Anyways, enjoy this next chapter
I carried Kaeya into 2J and sat down on the couch with Kaeya on my lap and tried to calm her down. After a few minutes, her crying stopped and she was calming down. She leaned her head into my shoulder.
"Why did Richard ever separate us?" She asked in almost a whisper. I shuddered as I had a small flashback of the gun pointing at me.
"He never liked us, remember? He hates kids. Mostly girls. He could barely stand having us. The reason he almost killed us, is because he found out that mom was going to have Katie and he didn't want another child. He just didn't like children." I said. Kaeya looked up at me.
"Then why did he threaten to kill us if Mom didn't leave with you and leave me with him? If he hated little girls more than little boys why did he tell her to leave me behind?"
"He wanted to have what he called fun. In his twisted little mind, he decided it would be fun to make you his slave and punching bag. One day, like 2 years ago, Richard called mom. At first I was angry and confused. I was angry at him for bothering to call us, but I was confused because he had said something to mom. That something made her immediately start crying and hide in the corner behind the living room couch. Her acting like that scared me and Katie. The next day I asked Mom about it and she burst into tears again. Richard had called to say that he wanted us to know that he was going to kill you on our 18th birthday. He told her that he was going to tie you up in your sleep, and cut along your skin slowly so you would suffer the pain, slowly stab you in the stomach 18 times then hang you in the closet. He told her that if anyone was going to try and save you, he would kill you. A few days ago, when I saw you get thrown at the wall again, I decided that I was going to get you back and if he killed you, I would kill him then myself so I wouldn't have to live without hearing your voice, or seeing you." I said. I was crying now, but I didn't care. Kaeya was crying too.
"Thank you so much Kenny." She whispered, hugging me tightly. I hugged back and buried my face in her hair.
"Don't thank me. I told you when we were 6 that I was going to get you back and then I told you not to ever thank me because you're my twin sister and I would do anything for you." I said softly. The crying stopped after a few minutes. We sat in silence. I was thinking of something.
"Sing." I told her. She looked at me like I was crazy.
"What? Kendall I haven't sung in three years! I don't even know any songs! Are you crazy?" She asked me.
"No I'm not crazy. And I know that you're lying… not about not singing for 3 years but for not knowing any songs. You've heard all of our songs and I know that you write songs. I said sing so I want you to sing. I miss hearing my twin sing." I said. She sat there thinking about it before jumping up and running upstairs to her room before coming back down with a book in her hands. She sat down cross legged on the couch beside me, facing me.
"I hear songs all the time from when I hear what you hear even if you don't notice you hear it. I've taken a few and wrote down the lyrics in this book. Then, after school I would get permission to go into the computer room to correct the lyrics. I just haven't sang anything. If you really want me to sing then fine, ill sing." She said. I nodded. She opened the book to a random page. She read over the lyrics once, sang the lyrics as written. I recognised the song, just never really thought anything about it.
I stare at my reflection in the mirror...
Why am I doing this to myself?
Losing my mind on a tiny error,
I nearly left the real me on the shelf ...
"no,no, no, no..."
Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay...
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart.
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are
(Who you are)x11
She ended off the chorus, and looked to me as if I were a judge on American idol. I smiled to her and noticed Katie and mom standing behind her.
"Oh my gosh sweetie that was amazing!" Mom sang as she pulled Kaeya, who had jumped when mom started talking because she didn't know she was there, into a hug. As soon as mom let go of Kaeya, Katie stepped up to her.
"Kaeya, if you ever become a singer and need a manager, I'm the girl you need to talk to. That was amazing!" Katie smiled. Kaeya gave a small smile before speaking.
"Thanks…. But I have stage fright… I can't sing in front of anyone but Kendall and you two. I want to be a singer…. But I can't." She said to them.
Gears started turning in my head. I need to figure out a way for my twin to get rid of her stage fright... But how?
