Summary: This story is about twins that are the exact opposite. One possesses powers of light and goodness and the other darkness and destruction. This is their struggles to become more than their stereo types.
I woke up to my mother shaking me. "Nox get up." She said sternly. When I refused to move she opened my curtains on me and I hissed at her then hid under my covers. She yanked them away from me and I was forced to get up.
I growled and headed toward the bathroom to take a shower. Today was the first day of my twin Dayton and mine senior year. Most people would be rushing to get to school all excited about their last year of school. I'm a generally pessimistic person though so I'm not jumping out of my shoes to have to get out of my comfortable bed.
You see my brother and I are exact opposites. I know I said we were twins but you see he has powers that go with light and good things. I have powers that go with darkness and mayhem. He has blonde hair and blue eyes. My hair is black and my eyes are dark.
To me he's just an annoying kiss up to everyone else he's the perfect person and I'm just his brother. I don't really mind though I don't want to have tons of friends. Oh another thing since we're opposites and he's straight that means I'm gay. I don't get too much trouble about it mainly because people are afraid of me.
Anyway, after my shower I got dressed. I was still in the bathroom putting my tongue ring in when Dayton came to the open door. He leaned against the door frame and looked at me. "You know mom hates that thing." He commented.
I looked at him. "Good." I said and slipped past him not wanting to hear his cheerful voice this early in the morning.
I had to wait for him in his car to go to school. My mother doesn't trust me with my own car so she made Dayton take me to school. I was seated in the front my iPod on full blast when he got in. "Nox!" He had to yell to get my attention.
I looked at him and took an earbud out. "Will you please sit in the back I want to pick up Tala?" Tala is his girlfriend.
"No." I said simply not moving.
"I asked nicely." He looked at me with pleading eyes. I gave in and went to the back. I sulked the whole way to Tala's house.
"Why didn't you just have Cale pick you up?" Cale was boyfriend that some how put up with me grouchy and hatefulness.
"Because I didn't know you were going to make me f****** make me sit in the back."
Dayton dropped the subject when Tala got in the car. I was glad because although I love arguing with my brother I just didn't feel like it right now. I wanted to listen to my music and try to make the day go by just a little bit faster. That and I had to come up with a way to get back at Dayton for making me ride in the back.
When we got to school I came up with an idea. I went over to Cale and started making out with him. Dayton hated PDA and I knew that this would strike a nerve with him. When I pulled away and looked at Dayton I smirked in triumph. He was glaring at me over Tala's shoulder.
"Good morning to you too." Cale drew my attention back to him by speaking.
"Yea," I said turning to face him completely.
"Why did you do that and why do you look like you just won a gold medal in something." Cale knew how I was and knew that I probably hurt someone to get into the happy mood I was in. You see I get energy from people having bad days or that are angry at someone or something.
"Dayton made me sit in the back so he could pick up Tala." I answered his question.
"So you made out with me?" He was confused.
"He hates PDA so I wanted to make him mad. That and I just like making out with you." I smirked at him.
"You are one vindictive and dark person." Cale chuckled at me.
"You love me for it." I teased.
"Yeah I guess I do." Whoa, what? Did he think I seriously thought he loved me? I didn't love him back. I don't love anyone for that matter. I don't know that I can love someone. It could be impossible. I know I'm never very nice to anyone. Not even Cale how could he love me? I was sooooo confused.
I love mornings. I get up with the sun and just have this surge of happy emotions. I would sit in the sun all day if I could but I can't today because I have to go to school. Today is the first day on my senior year. I was up way before my parents or my twin, Nox this morning. I started coffee for my parents and then went to get ready for school.
I took my time in the shower since I didn't have to think about Nox being up any time soon. Mom would probably have to force him to wake up. You see Nox and I although we are twins are opposites. His name means night and mine means bright and sunny. Our personalities and powers for that matter completely reflect that.
Anyway I had plenty of time once I was ready to wait until we had to leave for school. I went and sat out on the balcony off of my room. I heard my mom waking up Nox and then him stomping to the bathroom and starting a shower. I got up and headed inside when I heard the water turn off I gathered up my bag and slipped on my tennis shoes. I didn't have to grab a jacket since its August and nice outside.
I walked past the bathroom and Nox was putting in his tongue ring. I knew that my mother hated it and that's why he loved it he liked to tick people off while I always wanted people to like me. I guess it's just another part of our differences. "You know mom hates that thing." I commented.
Nox looked up glaring at me. "Good." He finished putting the thing in and slipped past me in his normally prissy attitude. I hated having him ruin my perfect mornings.
I headed downstairs saying good bye to my mom before heading to my car where Nox was waiting with his ear buds in and his music blasting. Our mom didn't trust Nox with a car so I had to take him places. I didn't see why he didn't have his boyfriend Cale come and pick him up. Oh yeah that's another thing I forgot to mention Nox's gay. I don't really mind I just don't want to see him doing anything.
I got in the car. "Nox," I tried to get his attention nicely. "Nox," I spoke a little louder this time. "Nox!" I had to yell to get his attention. He turned to me annoyance flashing in his eyes. He took out and ear bud and waited for me to say something. "Will you please sit in the back I want to pick up Tala?" Tala is my girlfriend and I had told her I would pick her up.
"No," he stated simply turning away from me.
I eventually got him to sit in the back but he was not very happy about it. I didn't want to make him mad but I did ask nicely and he had been so rude about it. I waited for Tala at her house. I tried to start a conversation with Nox while we were waiting but he would have none of it so we were quiet when Tala got in the car.
"Good morning," I greeted her.
"Morning," she leaned in to kiss me but I moved away. I hated PDA and Nox was in the back. She looked confused until she peeked in the back and saw Nox sitting there.
At school we all separated and Tala and I head over to our group of friends. I was talking to Tala and happened to look over her shoulder to see my brother sucking face with Cale. To be honest I don't even know how Cale puts up with Nox. Cale loves Nox and it's obvious but Nox continues to treat him like a piece of crap. Nox never offers any support or affection back.
If I were Cale I would have broken up with my monster of a brother a long time ago. It wasn't any of my business though. I walked to my class with Tala and my best friend, Tyler. I didn't really talk but felt comforted by the other people around me. There was no way I was going to let Nox ruin my senior year like he had the rest of my high school career. I avoided him all day so that his bad mood wouldn't affect my good one.
