Chapter 1- Will
I woke up to a comfortable chill in the room. My eyes darted from the window to the ceiling fan, and I realized they were both on. I was too lazy to shut them off so I covered myself with the blankets. My red hair hung in my face as in tried to get comfortable, but it was too late; I had already slept and I wasn't tired anymore.
My brother, Saul, was sitting in the kitchen eating a bowl of cereal. We both hated living with each other but every time we tried to move apart, something would happen that would nearly kill Saul or me. It was almost like fate was keeping us together. After all, I was nineteen. I could make it on my own.
"Cereal?" Saul pushed the box of Chex to me and I shook my head. I watched him shove food in his mouth. We were nothing like each other in appearance or behaviour. I sneered as he wiped his mouth on his sleeve.
I always wondered if we were adopted. Red hair flowed to my shoulders, combed perfectly straight (not a hair out of place!), but Saul's hair was dark brown and curly. It exploded out of his head and to his shoulders. He was also slightly darker in skin tone than me, although we had been separated for two years when our dad went on a very long business trip and took my brother with him.
Turns out, we weren't adopted. We just looked unrelated. As far as behavior went, I was a bit, well, delicate. I was always careful and avoided dirt, puddles and always used napkins to wipe my mouth. Saul, on the other hand, liked adventure. Even when we were little he'd make me go explore the small forest next to our house with him.
I combed through my hair with my fingers. "Have you talked to Rudy?" I asked. He looked up at me.
"Yesterday. He's with his girlfriend or whatever, so he was busy. I think he mentioned that he needed my help fixing his Xbox or whatever, so I'll check it out later," he grunted as he swallowed his Chex. I raised an eyebrow.
"He still uses that thing?"
"Yeah. But his dog was chewing on the console so he snapped a wire…I need to fix that. I probably can. I'm good at that stuff." He grinned proudly.
"Alright, I'll see you later," I ruffled his curly hair and made it frizz all over the place. Saul noticed right away and snarled at me.
"Whatever, bye," he began to fix his hair.
I grabbed my jacket and opened the front door. I stepped out on the porch, went down the steps and caught the bus nearest to the diner.
