In the flesh.
This is the part where I'm supposed to tell you about myself so let's start with my name. It's Dallas Mariano, I know I have a weird name but hey my twin brother's name is actually a girl's, Jess. He has black hair but I have dark brown…just thought I'd make that clear. Anyway our mom Liz is not exactly mother material. She tries, she really does, but she just gets frustrated to easily.
I don't exactly remember how long it's been since Jess went to go live with Uncle Luke but I don't think it even matters because now I'm following in his footsteps. That's right my mom is shipping me off too, sucks for Uncle Luke. I stepped off the bus and found the diner instantly. It was about 2:00 when I walked into the diner and my Uncle Luke stared at me for a good thirty seconds.
"Hey Uncle Luke," I said calmly.
Uncle Luke and I haven't seen each other since I was ten but I know mom has sent him pictures of Jess and I over the years.
"Dallas? Is that really you?"
"In the flesh."
He came around the counter and gave me a big hug. When he put me down he pulled me over to this very pretty woman sitting at the counter drinking coffee.
"Lorelai this is my niece, Dallas."
"Oh are you Jess' sister?"
"His twin actually, nice to meet you."
"Well you're a lot more talkative then he is."
"Jess isn't socializing well?"
"He isn't socializing at all." Luke said bitterly.
"I can change that! Where is he?"
"Well, school ended a few days ago so he's probably around here wandering. But he has work at three so he'll be back soon."
"Okay I'll go walk around and get my bearings I guess. It was nice meeting you Lorelai."
"Nice meeting you too, if you're going to be around tonight I'll bring my daughter by she's your age."
"Oh okay sounds cool. See you guys later."
I threw my back pack by the steps and walked outside. I was walking around the town and looking at all the stores when I bumped into someone. I looked up and saw a really cute guy. He was tall, dark brown hair, and a sweet smile."
"Oh god, sorry I wasn't watching where I was going."
"It's okay, are you new here?"
"Yeah, I just got here about ten minutes ago. I'm Dallas Mariano."
"Mariano, as in Jess' sister?"
"Twin actually. Yeah, I'm looking for him now do you know where he is?"
"Nope, Jess and I aren't the best of friends. Well, I have to get to work so I'll see you around."
He smiled and started to walk away but I called out to him, "Hey, you got a name?"
He smiled, "Dean Forester."
"See you later Dean Forester."
I smiled and continued walking. I found myself at a small bridge looking at my twin, who I hadn't seen in quite sometime, reading a book.
He jumped at the sound of my voice and walked over to me.
"Dallas! Jesus, why didn't you tell me you were coming?"
"I didn't know until about two days ago when mom threw my stuff at me and told me to go stay with Uncle Luke."
"This is so great. Finally someone who isn't happy all the time and doesn't get excited over a freaking town meeting.
"You're kidding there's town meetings."
"Oh hell yeah, come on I have to get back to the diner before Luke has a spasm."
When we got back to the diner Jess got to work but I went over to Uncle Luke. I had to sort things out with this whole situation
"Uncle Luke, can I talk to you for a minute?" I asked.
We walked upstairs to the apartment and sat down at the kitchen table. I sighed and looked over at him.
"Uncle Luke, mom and I are not on good terms and I swear I didn't know she was sending me here until two days ago. Do you mind if I stay here?"
"No, I don't mind at all. But you're going to be on the same rules as Jess."
"You go to school when it starts back up again, you work in the diner, and you're back in this apartment every night at 11:30 during the summer 10:30 during the school year. Deal?"
"Yep, thank you so much Uncle Luke."
He smiled then threw a rag at me, "Get to work."
