Hello! I hope this fictionpress story is okay :D I wrote while I was in Europe, after seeing my naughty cousins fight, I started to have an inspiration XD Hope you enjoy it! :D
"Alexander! Give that back to me!" Tyren shouted at her brother. Alexander, being the naughty boy he was, snatched his sister's diary out of her hands and raced around the living room.
"Catch me if you can!" Alexander stuck his tongue out playfully at Tyren. The girl groaned in annoyance. Her twin brother was so irritating sometimes; she wished she could put him in a box, place it in the middle of Grand Canyon and just leave.
"Mother! Alexander's annoying me!" Tyren yelled out to her mother, who was sitting on the sofa, her eyes glued to the television screen. The latter rolled her eyes and glared at her children, "Could you please keep it down? I'm watching Korean dramas here!"
Tyren sighed. Her mother, on the other hand, did not care enough to reprimand Alexander from making a nuisance. Either way, she could never stop him. Every day was the same argument, different day. Not one minute was peaceful for her. In fact, every minute was a war zone.
"Wait a minute. You kissed Randall?! I never knew you fancied the head monitor, Sister!" Alexander sniggered behind the opened diary. Tyren's jaw dropped. She now changed her mind about leaving him in a box. She wanted to strangle him!
"Alexander, you better get back here with that book!" Tyren clenched her fists and waved them around in frustration. Alexander just closed the door behind him shut, swiftly locked it with the twist of his hand, and sat on his sister's bed, flipping through the rather torn and tattered pages of the diary.
"This is too good to be true!" Alexander laughed in amusement, "How many times has she played a prank on Mrs. Lee?" He grinned; obviously pleased with the 'damage' he had done.
"Alexander! Let. Me. In!" Tyren banged her fist on the white, wooden door. The boy groaned, "Really, Tyren- how many times do you need to call my name? I know I'm your handsome little twin brother who gets chased around by girls every so often. But, can't a famous guy like me have some privacy, please?"
She just could not believe it. How can he, of all people, get chased around by girls? He is a lazy, selfish pig, who does nothing but eats, sleeps and annoys people! Clearly, there must be a mistake at the hospital. The nurse probably gave her mother the wrong baby. Alexander can never be her brother! A twin brother, as a matter of fact!
"I want my diary back! Like you said- you are my little brother. You are to listen to your big sister, and that's final!"
Before long, the door to Tyren's room opened and her little brother threw the diary to her.
"Alright, here you go. Like what Mother always says- 'Respect the elderly'…"
Tyren could feel her blood boil. Elderly? Obviously, this has clearly gone out of line!
"I am going to kill you!" Tyren took her mother's cane and waved it high up in the air. She laughed inwardly as she saw the frightened look reflected on her brother's hazel eyes. Without thinking, Alexander ran off to the living room, screaming for help- with Tyren brandishing the big cane.
"Help me, Mom!"
"Come back here!"
Just then, the door knob turned. Suddenly, the room became quiet. It was always like that with Father. Even though he was a very fun father and a loving husband, he was very strict about the house rules and running about in the house.
Silence settled into the house as Tyren carefully placed the cane behind her back.
"…What's wrong with you guys today? You're acting really weird…"
"Oh, nothing!" Alexander snapped out of his trance and straightened up, "Tyren and I were just getting some…coffee! Right, Tyren?" Tyren nodded slowly before breaking out into her beautiful, yet fake, mega-watt smile.
"O-okay…" Father raised an eyebrow, glancing over at his daughter, "Tyren, what's that in your hand?"
"I was…teaching Alexander the five times table!" Her smile got bigger as she pointed the cane to the whiteboard beside the television set. Alexander's eyebrow twitched. 'Five times table...? I am thirteen, Tyren.' He thought mentally, though he showed no emotion on his face.
"…With a cane?"
"W-what did you expect me to do? We have no pointers in this house!" Tyren stuttered a little before laughing nervously, pulling a rather amused Alexander by the arm, "We'll be right back! I just have to scold…I mean, tell Brother something. Bye!"
Without looking back, Tyren pushed her brother into her room and locked the door shut.
Mr. Lim blinked once before turning to his wife,
"…They were fighting, weren't they?"
Mrs. Lim rolled her eyes.
"Tell me about it."
Please review! It would mean so much :D But, please be easy on me :)
