My Opposite Twin

Ah Yin was unlike her best friend, Ah Lian. She wasn't as smart as her nor was she as beautiful. But she had one advantage and that was her friendly personality. EVERYONE liked her a lot because she was very much approachable compared to Ah Lian. When they were introduced to their classroom, she smiled and gave off an aura of friendliness while her friend remained solemn and quiet as usual. During recess, everyone wanted to become their friend. Ah Lian almost immediately shy away but Ah Yin welcomed such invitation. In class, although she as not as smart as Ah Lian, but the teachers preferred to call her up to answer questions rather than suffer the quiet glare of Ah Lian.

She had always been a happy and cheerful child. Although her parents, especially her mother, were as strict as slave drivers, she maintained her cheery façade so that no one would know actually how much she really suffers under her parents' scrutiny. Though her parents were overprotective, they were seldom around to keep an eye on her, but when they were around she suffered under harsh commands. She grew up to be a wild child with a pretentious happy face. No one could understand her until Ah Lian came along. The moment she met her, it was like Ah Lian could see through her façade. When she asked her to be her friend, Ah Lian agreed on the condition that she stopped her acting when being with her. She agreed, and they promised each other that they won't keep any secrets from each other.

Being orphaned, Ah Lian really stuck onto Ah Yin, and they became inseparable. Though they were best friends, they looked more like twin sisters. So when Ah Lian joined the Chinese Elite Drug Enforcement, Ah Yin was also dragged into it. She met Ah Lian's brother, Ah Joe, and she fell in love at first sight. She confessed her feelings and they dated for half a year before they decided to get engaged, promising each other that they would wait for her to finish either high school or college before they tie the knot. Ah Lian was happy for both of them, since they were, after all, her dear brother and her best friend.

Recently they were sent to Japan to accomplish a mission. The two girls, being still young, had to continue their studies in a Japanese high school. They had to learn the language before they were sent to Shohoku High. New environment was not much of a challenge for a wild child like Ah Yin, but for Ah Lian who is so pampered by her brother, it was more than a challenge, it was a disaster. Sure she was good at other skills, but when it comes to socializing, she sucked. That's when her best friend comes to her rescue. She would become her communicator, her means of expressing. They work together like a team; one with the brain, the other with the medium of communication. That's how life was for these unlikely 'twins'.

Now seeing Ah Lian sleeping soundly after their failed mission, Ah Yin felt that sisterly love coming over her. Her parents had finally given up on her and so she has become an orphan…kinda…like her best friend. They look out for each other and their bond towards each other was very strong. They would go through life in this strong sisterly bond till the end of time, she thought. Nothing can separate them. They were a family. Ah Lian, Ah Joe, and Ah Yin…one big happy family…

At least, that's what she thought…

Author's note: I know it sounds crappy…but I had to describe their relationship first before I can move along with the story. Next up…the really story…!!! Wait for it…and please review.
