Twinepathy (Part 1): The Beginning

Hullo, everyone! Here’s that surprise I mentioned yesterday. It’s been over a month since the end of Avengers’ Isle, which was a ton of fun, and it seemed like all of you enjoyed it, too. Rather than start a sequel (which I was tempted to do after watching Age of Ultron), I decided to take a story I was planning and turn it into a serial story for your enjoyment. I present to you part one of Twinepathy. Enjoy, my dear friends! If you like it, share!

Note from future C.B.: Instead of clicking through all these parts, you can find the full novel on Amazon now! You can also find the paperback on Barnes and Noble online.

Hello, my name is Albany, and I have a telepathic connection with my twin sister, along with the ability to read minds.

Well, that may not be the best start, but I’m pretty proud of it. It makes this sound like it’s going to be an awesome story. Which it is. But the beginning… well… I promise it’ll get more exciting than this.

“Go fish.”

Denver, my older brother, moaned and drew a card from the small stack. “How can you guys beat me at everything?”

Brooklyn, twin sister extraordinaire and social butterfly, gives him a mischievous grin. “You’re just too obvious.”

Denver gives me a helpless look, and I shrug. “I’m losing, too.”

“And if I win…” Brooklyn studies her hand. “You have to treat me to dinner, Denver.”

He makes a moaning sound. “Okay, fine. But not tonight. You know I’ve got a date.”

Brooklyn makes a face. If there’s one thing she dislikes, it’s Denver dating. She would definitely prefer to only have to share him with me and Mom and Dad. It doesn’t matter to her that Ezra’s a sweet, slightly awkward girl that Denver’s gone head over heels for. It also doesn’t matter to her that she hardly does anything with him, anyway… but I digress.

“Two,” Brooklyn says to me. I mutter something under my breath and hand a card to her. She sniffs the air. “Your cookies are burning.”

I fly into the kitchen. I’m no cook, but I had to try the bacon cookie recipe I found. I mean, hello, bacon and cookies! My two favorite foods just have to be amazing together. I should’ve known I’d burn them. I can’t cook anything.

I pull out the extra crispy cookies just as the doorbell rings. “You should get that while you’re up,” Denver calls. I roll my eyes. I’ll be he and Brooklyn are laughing. I hate checking the door. Technically, since Mom and Dad aren’t here – they’re on a date – Denver should answer the door, since he’s the oldest. But of course they’ll make me do it. I check the cookies. Yep, they’re burnt enough that no one will want to eat them, not even me. I’ll have to beg Mom to try the recipe for me. What a waste of bacon and cookie. I sigh and wipe my hands on a towel before heading to the door.

I peer out the peephole and don’t see anything until I look down. There, on our doorstep, is a little girl in a ratty red dress, hair tangled and face smudged. She looks around eight years old, maybe a little less. I send a mental image of her to Brooklyn before opening the door.

“Hello,” I say, gazing at her. I notices she’s not wearing shoes, and her dress looks fairly new, just dirty and torn. “Who are you?”

She looks up at me with haunting blue eyes – hollow, scared, lost. Her mouth opens, as if she’s going to speak, but an odd expression crosses her face. She wobbles, then crumples to the ground, out cold.

Well, what do you think so far? Thoughts, comments? Comment below! Your comment could be the difference between the continuation of this series… and the end. No pressure…

  1. Yay! Twinepathy rocks! 😀 I’m super glad you’ve decided to start something new. I’ve been waiting. 😛

    That ending is certainly…. interesting. Therefore, I need more! I’m not the best with cliff-hanger endings. Especially in a really popular book series and you’re up to date. You have to wait a year (sometimes even longer) to get the next book! (That’s what happened with the 3rd book in the Books of Beginning series. Gladly it’s out. 🙂 )

    Anyways, this is great! I love it and I can’t wait to see how this turns out! I’m pretty sure it’s going to be as awesome (or even better!) as the Avengers’ Isle. :3

    • Yay!!! I’m so glad you like it. I’m really enjoying this story, and if I get far enough ahead, I might start posting two a week. 😉 So feel free to bug me about writing more.
      At least you don’t have to wait a year for this! 😉 I totally know what you mean. I finally got up to date on The Lunar Chronicles, and I have to wait until November for Winter. *moooooan*
      I hope so!!! Thanks so much for your gorgeous comment! ❤


      • Oh course I love it! It’s written by amazingly awesome you! X3 I won’t bug you, but I’ll be repeatingly encouraging you. ;P
        I’m so sorry! I’ve heard a lot of great things about the Lunar Chronicles, and I would freak out if I had to wait for the next book. At least it’s November; you don’t have to wait super long (unless the author decides near the release date to push it back a few more months).
        😀 It will be!

    • First person singular is tough to do, but I think you’re on the right track with it. “Hunger Games” used it with very good effect and you seem to be old put yourself in the shoes of the first-person singular person very well, but this is only a short excerpt.

      All the best!

  5. Did u actually write that??
    That is amazing. Maybe when you finish the book you could get it published. I know u might have already thought of that but hey just saying that you got my support. I just started following u and I love your blog and the stories. They are really fun.

    Just an idea: Maybe u could set up another blog telling and teaching people how to write a stroy of you have any technique or the different steps of writing. Like first just writing, then improving on vocabulary, etc. I would definitely like that and it would help me become better at Creative writing.

    I have just started blogging and I am really enjoying it. You seem to know all about, so I would be grateful if you could just have a glance at my blog. U might even like it?? *unsure face*. But anway if you have any feedback for me I would really appreciate it. I have an e-mail u can find it on my recent posts or on my “Contact me !!!” page. And maybe if you like my blog then pls do follow me because I don’t know whether people actually like my blog and a little support would definitely boost my confidence. Thanks and again I LOVE your blog/writing website.
