Summer and Asia Callahan - Twins - Seniors. Sound ordinary? Wrong. The only thing that these two have in common are their looks, same parents, and the same older brother. The two couldn't be more different in personality. Asia - the wide-eyed-innocent girl that can do no wrong. Summer - the rebel among the family. During the last few months of their senior year in highschool, things turn upside down for the two of them. One of them must learn how to control her actions and the other one must learn how to break out of her shell.

Chapter 1


"Hey Sum, you still going to the party tonight, right?" Pat asked me as we were both walking down the hall to out next class. I swear, these hallways keep shrinking day after day. You can't walk through them without accidentally bumping into someone.

"Yeah, I guess. But I'm warning you right now. If this party is boring, which it probably will be, then I'm getting my ass out of there and going to a real party." I guess you could say that Pat's last party was somewhat of a bummer and I decided to…well, you'll see.

"I promise you that it won't be boring."

"That's what you said about that the last party you made me go to. And look where it got me!" I practically yelled, causing few freshmen to look at me. I shot them a glare and they quickly turned their gaze elsewhere. Are seniors really that scary to the new freshmen? I mean, you just look at them and they cower like crazy. Or is it just because I look like a punk?

"It's not my fault that you decided to leave and get drunk somewhere and then go home, driving yourself no less, only to be caught walking in the front door, drunk, by Dustin and your mom." See…I don't exactly make the best decisions sometimes, but I have to keep myself entertained or else I go and do stupid things. Like going off and getting drunk and then driving myself home.

"Yes it is and you forgot to mention that my mom revoked my license until graduation," I said, opening the door to my psychology class. Oh God…I hate this class. Why the hell did I even sign up to be in it last year? I thought it would be interesting to take psychology last year…now I'm kicking myself in the ass for it.

"Oh, and you're blaming me for that too?" Pat said, walking right behind me.

"Well, yeah. I blamed you for everything else. Why shouldn't I blame you for that too?" Pat just smiled and shook his head. We entered the classroom and Mrs. Bell was sitting at her desk. God, I swear this teacher had it in for me. All she does is glare at me during class.

"Sometimes I worry about you Summer."

"Me too," I said and at that instant, I heard my twin's laugh coming from the hall. Pat must have seen the look on my face as he put a hand on my shoulder.

"You be nice today Sum. I don't think you want another repeat of last class."

"What if I want another repeat of last class?" I said with an innocent smile.

"I can't believe you," he said and sighed. I just laughed. Last class was pretty boring as we were finishing up presentations. So, I decided to entertain myself. I started to fling paper clips at my sister, Asia, and then all around the room. It was a total accident that one of my paper clips hit the person who was giving a presentation at the time. I thought it was pretty funny. But apparently, my teacher didn't think it was. She sent me straight to the office and she actually called home. Stupid old hag…

"Did you finish your homework?" Asia asked me as she and one of her friends sat at the table in front of Pat and I. Asia was one of those girls who did their homework right when they stepped into the house and spent hours finishing it. I don't see how she does it. I'm a huge procrastinator and I don't usually start my homework until there are only a few hours till the deadline.

"Yep, finished it about fifteen minutes ago."

"I have no idea how you're going to fair in college," Asia said to herself more than to anyone else.

"I'll just copy all of your homework Ace." My twin looked at me and laughed. That's the cool thing about Asia. She knows when I'm being serious and when I'm joking. And that includes telling the truth and telling a lie. There's always a downside to being a twin sometimes.

"Okay class, let's begin," my teacher said. And so began the next ninety minutes of hell. About half way through class, one of the ladies in the front office came onto speaker and said, "Mrs. Bell?"

"Yes?" my teacher said and looked annoyed. The hag barley tolerated latecomers – I found that out the second day of class…God, I was only two minutes late.

"Would you please send Summer Callahan to the front office?" Oh crap…

"Of course," she said. Was it just me or did she sound a little too happy to send me?

"What did you do now?" Pat whispered to me. I just looked at him for a second and then lightly hit him across the arm. I felt like hitting him harder but Mrs. Bell would probably say that I was physically abusing the guy. Yeah, he's like five inches taller than me and he's five-eleven. Physical abuse my ass.

"Summer, your homework will be to read all of chapter twenty-four and to answer all of the review questions at the end," the old hag told me. Jeez, is she trying to kill me with homework or something? I swear, none of my other teachers give me this much homework. It's not fair!

"Okay, don't forget Ace," I told my sister. Ha, take that you stupid old teacher from Hell!

"I won't," she answered back. Mrs. Bell looked like she was counting to ten as I gathered all of my stuff and put it all into my backpack. I quickly exited the classroom, scared that Mrs. Bell was going to throw one of her sacred overhead pens at me. Wouldn't that be a sight? I guess I could not go the office and just ditch, but sadly, I don't have my car, much less my license. Curse the day that the drinking age was moved to twenty-one. But anyway, I took my time walking to the front office. Whoever wanted to see me could wait an extra few moments, couldn't they? Walking into the front lobby, I saw my older brother, Dustin, waiting there. I wonder what he's doing here.

"Hey Dust," I said as casually as I could. Ever since that night when I walked in drunk, he's been so snappy with me. He gives me that are-you-that-stupid? Look. I hate it. He really needs to loosen up.

"What took you so long?" he asked. No 'hello' or anything. Someone really was a grump. Dustin works as a bouncer at a nightclub – and makes pretty good money doing it – but working the night shift means that he's not usually up at this time. And when he doesn't have his sleep…God have mercy on anyone who wakes him up.

"I had to write down my homework for psychology." He just looked at me and rolled his eyes.

"Whatever. Let's just go," he said and started to walk to the front doors. I had to jog to keep up with him because his legs were so much longer than my own. And my heavy backpack wasn't making it any easier, either.

"Where are we going?" I asked, just out of curiosity. Mom didn't tell me that I was being picked up early to go anywhere. But then again, she doesn't tell me anything anymore.

"To mom's office, you idiot," he said without looking back at me. See what I mean?

"Jesus Christ, what's wrong with you?" I said under my breath.

"Just shut up Summer," he snapped and hit the unlock button on the key chain. I opened the back door of his Honda Accord and put my backpack in the back seat. I then jumped in the front with Dustin. He started the car and jetted out of the parking lot. What, exactly, did I do this time?

So I'm sitting in the little waiting area that patients wait in until the doctor is ready for them. God, it's so boring! Even the magazines are boring! All about health and how to keep your body in healthy condition. I'm all for health and all, but do all the magazine articles have to be about the same thing? And Dustin keeps looking at me like every five seconds to make sure that I'm not going to bolt for the doors. God, like I would do something like that. Well, at least when Dustin isn't here watching me…hehe…

"I'm going to go to the bathroom real quick Summer. If you're not here when I get back, you're going to be in so much trouble," Dustin said to me. Ha, perfect time to sneak out. Starbucks sounds good…

"Like I haven't heard that one before," I said to him and picked up one of the many magazines that were spread out through the waiting room. I hate coming to my mom's work. My mother works as a nurse practitioner and I don't do well with any kind of doctor or nurse. When I last came here to get some kind of a shot, I was left in the stupid room for half an hour, shaking because I was afraid of shots. I do not do well around any kind of needle.

"I mean it Summer," Dustin said. I put down the magazine I was skimming through and looked at him. God, a little trust would be nice.

"I know Dustin. Would you lay off already?" I said to him and went back to reading. Just go to the fucking bathroom already. I want my Starbucks…My mouth is already drooling. I heard Dustin say something under his breath and turn to go to the bathroom. Once he was out of sight, I shot up out of the chair and threw the magazine back down on the table. I walked as quickly as I could to the elevator and pressed the down button. Dustin should know better than to leave me alone by now. Oh well. The elevator doors opened and luckily, there was no one inside. I stepped in and pressed the button that would take me down to the lobby. The doors closed. Phew, I was home free. Once I hit the lobby, I walked out of the freaky hospital and I headed towards the nearest Starbucks. About halfway there, I called Asia on my cell. I have no idea why my mother didn't take it away when she took my license. I bet she's regretting that right about now.

"Hey Sum," my sister said to me over the phone. Ah ha! I found it! Vanilla fraup here I come.

"Hey Ace, you want to meet me over at Starbucks right now?" I was getting weird looks from a few people. But who cares! Screw them, they didn't want a fraup as bad as I did right now.

"Sure, but wait, aren't you supposed to be at your physical right now?" she asked, sounding curious and confused.

"Is that why Dustin came to pick me up?" I asked, acting stupid. I know, I know, mom and Dustin are going to be pissed when they see me later tonight, but right now, I could care less.

"Oh God Sum, please tell me you didn't ditch mom and Dust," she said, almost desperately.

"Okay then, I won't," I said and laughed. "You still meeting me for some Starbucks?" It was a few seconds before she answered.

"You know that I couldn't pass up an offer for Starbucks."

"Okay, I'll meet you there then."

"Okay, bye."

"Ace! Wait!"


"If Dustin or Mom call you, would you tell them that I called you and told you that I was going to a friends house?" I tried, but it probably wouldn't work.

"Sum, I'm not going to lie to our older brother or Mom," she said, sounding like mom. God…that was scary.

"Fine, be that way party pooper." Yes! I opened the door to Starbucks, happy and excited. Sugar!

"Did you just say 'party pooper'?" Umm…

"No," I lied.

"Okay," she laughed at me. "I'll be there in ten." Sweet!

"Bye," she said and we both hung up at the same time. For being assigned a crap load of homework in psychology, my brother still being snappy with me, and ditching Dustin and my mom, this day wasn't turning out to be so bad after all.

Okay, so this is my 2nd newest story. Well it isnt exactly all of mine. Me and a friend of mine are writing it together and have been writing it for sometime. Some of our other friends have read this and they've really liked it so I wanted to test it out here and see what kind of responses we get. So drop a review if you read this and tell us what you think! I'll post the rest of the chapters we have all ready in a few minutes so you guys get an idea of what it's like so far.
