Chapter 1: Rin's brilliant idea
"I can't take it anymore!" Len said, entering our bedroom.
"What is it now?" I asked, not even bothering to look up from my book.
You see, my twin brother Len often complained about pretty much anything. Well, almost…
"I'm sick of all the girls following me everywhere I go! I can't even go to the bathroom without them wanting to follow me inside! Seriously I know I'm hot an' all, but…"
I lifted my gaze from the page I was reading to stare at my playboy brother. He never, and I mean NEVER, had complained about his fan club and all the other girls who were at his feet before. It made me quite curious so I urged him on: "But?"
"I'm just tired of getting so much attention. There's even a guy who confessed to me today! A GUY! He even told me I was cute…like a girl," he said, inflaming with rage (Len is a shota, but he would never admit it and hates people telling him, so don't tell him I told you that, because he'd kill me). "I wish I could just be like you, Rin, and pass unnoticed."
That was kinda insulting. I'm not that unnoticeable! Sure, I only have a few friends…well make that one, but at least I have a friend! And most of the boys ignore me, 'cause I hide behind big circular glasses that people called "nerd glasses" and wear clothes that don't exactly scream femininity. The boys who did try to venture in my path all got cold responses. I already had someone in mind…
"Rin are you still here?" Len asked with a questioning look.
"Hum? Eh… yeah," I replied staring at him profoundly. We looked exactly the same. Light blonde hair about shoulder length (though he wore his in a pony tail, when I preferred a bow), deep blue eyes. We were even about the same height, but Len was one or two inches taller. And… I can't believe I'm admitting this, but since my chest was flat, and my curves weren't exactly present, we basically had the same body structure. We were so much alike it left you to wonder why he was so popular for his looks and not me (Not that I really want attention from girls…).
Then it hit me!
"Len, I might have an idea to solve your problem!"
What was up with Rin? I was in the middle of a sentence when she suddenly jumped up from the lower bunk, hitting her head in the process, which she completely ignored, and screamed: "Len, I might have an idea to solve your problem!" Then she scurried out of the room before I could question her, stopping for just half a second to pick up some of my clothes from the floor. What was she going to do with that?
Oh well, she was always very impulsive. Now I just had to wait for her to come back and explain.
5 minutes later, she came back and it was as if I was looking in a mirror. She had tied her hair back in a pony tail and was now wearing the clothes she had picked up. If I wasn't me, I would probably think she was.
I looked at her quizzically.
"We're going to exchange lives… for now," was her answer to my gaze.
