Okay, so i know i probably shouldn't be starting a new story considering I can hardly ever update, but, I had this amazing idea and I just couldn't let it go.
Preface: I stared into pools of purple and red and couldn't help but wonder, which would she choose? Good, or evil?
I'm Thalia Cree, I have a twin sister named Trinity. The only difference, is our shocking eyes. You could say that we're different, but I'd like to call ourselves the Unknown. The reason will come soon, but for now I'd like to tell you a story.....
"Hurry up, Trinity!" I heard loud footsteps and then my sister appeared looking dangerous in short shorts and a red flowing shirt. She had on black high heel boots, and that made me dread what was coming today. Today is my sister and I's first day of junior year at Sea Ridge High School.
"Calm down, Thalia, haven't you ever heard of being fashionably late?" She had an eyebrow raised and a dangerous glint in her deep green eyes. Her long black hair was curled, which made her look like an evil goddess.
"Yes, Trin, I have. But you're fashionably late and mine are totally different things. Go get in the car." She rolled her eyes and stomped out the door. I looked around the small kitchen making sure it was clean, the marble counters were spotless and the deep red cabinets were shining in the light. I shrugged and grabbed my black purse then followed my sister out the door.
"You look rather adorable." Trinity told me mockingly as I got into my red convertible. I rolled my eyes and started the car. I was wearing a pink shirt with a black over coat along with jeans and ballet flats, not very adorable. I looked over a Trinity and saw her eyes turning red, dangit she can;t keep calm for more than two seconds.
"Trin, stop, control yourself. We can't make the same mistake as last time." I warned her repeatedly over the summer that this couldn't happen, she's so irresponsible.
"I'm sorry, I just have these thoughts...." She trailed off and her eyes turned blood red.
"Trin! Stop, humans are friends not enemies so change it."
My sister and I, we aren't normal. We appear as these shockingly beautiful twins, me with bright green eyes and her with dark green eyes, but we're totally and completely different from humans. We are at a constant battle choosing between the thoughts of beasts, wanting to take revenge on humans, or choosing the good side like our ancestors did. Once my sister gives over to the ravage thoughts, her eyes turn totally and completely red.
But I'm a totally different story. The gene is only passed onto twins, but my sister and I have it easy. Well, I do at least. its easier for me to choose good. Our eyes reveal our thoughts basically, and if I begin to think wrongly my eye turns red, but the other is a deep purple. And then a thought occurs to me each and every time, 'Our ancestors did and you can too.' That one insignificant thought is what makes me who I am, an Unknown.
No one knows why our people feel the way we do, legend says that there was a giant war between the Unknown people and the humans. They thought we were too different. And its true, we are. But, they thought we weren't normal enough to live together in peace. Our ancestors made a speech that went like this;
We were all put on this planet for a reason! Not to battle or to hate each other, but to coexist as one community. We were all given special talents, whether it be basketball or brains, we are all different. So, how can one group of people be too different, so what if we can fly or shoot fire from our arms. Or even cause a tsunami at will, we would never use thy talents against thee innocent. If we must continue this battle, we will die with dignity, we will not and I repeat we will not, use our powers on thee weak!
Ever since that great battle, it is a prominent gene that we want revenge on all humans. We can't control it, but we try. Only few people have lived a full and happy life as an Unknown, I'm hoping I'll be one of them.
"Come on, other half, we have a show to put on!" Trinity clapped her hands and brought me out of my thoughts.
'Shut up, Trin, no more speaking like we're different, if I sense something we're enrolling in a different, got it?' I said to her in my thoughts, knowing she'd hear. She nodded and slammed the car door. I rolled my eyes.
"Ow, you idiot, I'm going to kill you!" Someone said. A large man in a football jacket was stocking up to a man with blond hair and blue eyes, he was kind of built but no way could he stand up against a football play. I took a deep breath and walked over to them.
"Now, now boys, we wouldn't want to fight when a lady's present." I said as I walked up to the jock. I put my arm on him. "Now why don't you head to class."My hypnosis worked and he nodded and walked away quickly.
"Thanks, he thinks I tripped him. I of course didn't" He smiled and my cold heart skipped a beat.
"Uh, no problem. I'm Thalia, nice to meet you!" he smiled and shook my hand.
"James, its amazing to be in your presence." I had a feeling this was going to be a difficult school year.
