I hadn’t seen my twin sister in months. She had become increasingly withdrawn since… well, since we were kids. I was the only person close to her.
A package from last week sat outside the gate. Inside, a pungent odor thickened the air. The mirrors were painted black. I called for her. My pleas were soliloquies.
I entered her painting room. Her beloved paintings were torn and strewn about the room. The only survivor was a self-portrait. The eyes were painted black.
I noticed paper fragments among the ruins. I pieced them together. A death certificate for her twin sister.
