Criminal Unknown

Ch. 1

Blinds parted for a pair of blue eyes to warily look outside. They saw nothing except for what is always seen: a cozy street with cozy houses; the only difference now being that it was dark. The young woman attached to the eyes turned to look around her living room. Nothing there but her furniture and yet Amy couldn't rid herself of the feeling that she was being watched. Amy realized that she needed to calm down and decided to read a book, only, they're all in the attic. Amy grabbed a flashlight and walked upstairs to the attic door, turned on the flashlight and headed up.

She reached the top and shined her light around to see where she put the box of books. Upon seeing the box in the light she walked over, opened the box, and began looking through to find the right book; suddenly she heard the squeak of a floorboard. Amy shined the flashlight all around the attic but saw nothing and went back to looking for her book, but in a hurried and slightly panicked manor. Another floorboard squeaks, but this time it's right behind her. Amy turned to see what it was.


"Tyler, they're here!" Jeri yells towards the bedroom.

Tyler walks out to the living room while putting on an olive drab T-shirt to go with his blue jeans and tennis shoes and says "thanks Jer, let's go out and see what's up."

Jeri nods and they walk outside to find a couple leaning against a slightly rusted, black, charger. The young woman nudges her friend who had been looking down the street; he now looks back and sees Jeri and Tyler coming towards them. He rocks up into a standing position and walks towards Tyler, arms opening on the way.

"Bro." he said. "How have you been? I've missed you." He embraces Tyler.

Welcoming the hug and returning it Ty answers "I'm doing well Dash and I've missed you as well." Tyler releases his brother and gives him a good look. Dash is 6'5", 23, with a medium build, short black hair, and dark blue eyes. He's wearing a tight black t-shirt, black jeans, and Converse All Stars.

"I'm glad you're doing well." Dash said. He apprises his brother who is 6'2", 21, with a fair build, green eyes, and shoulder length black hair with long bangs that swept to the right. "You're looking good, still a bit of a toothpick though."

"Yeah, yeah." Tyler said in a fake annoyed tone. He glanced to the side and noticed his brother's friend has walked up. She was about 5'2", appeared to be about 21, with a medium build, silver eyes, and long black hair with a white bangs that reminds Ty of a girl in a comic book series. She's wearing a black halter top that shows her stomach, a red plaid skirt, and knee high Converse. He looked back to Dash and asked "so, who's your friend?" while gesturing towards the young woman.

"This is my girlfriend Katherine." He said looking at her with a smile. "Katherine, this is my little brother Tyler." Dash stated gesturing to him.

"It's a pleasure to meet you Katherine." Tyler said, extending his hand towards her.

"The pleasure is all mine Tyler." Katherine said in a gentle tone, shaking his hand.

"Speaking of friends Ty, who's yours?" Dash asked nodding towards Jeri who had brown eyes, short brown hair with long bangs that swept to the left. He was skinny but still had muscles and Dash estimated that he was 21 and about 6'0". He's wearing a purple tank, skinny jeans, and black short boots.

"My name is Jeri." He said, extending his hand.

"Nice to meet you Jeri" Dash said, shaking Jeri's hand.

"You as well Dash"

"Isn't anyone going to ask about me?" Said a voice that came from near the car.

Katherine turned to see a young woman with her same appearance except for the hair; which was white with black bangs. She's wearing a black leather jacket over a black tank, a blue plaid skirt, fishnet stockings, and black punk rocker boots. Katherine's eyes widen and she screams "TWIN!" and runs to see her sister, and hugs her, nearly knocking her over.

Jeri and Tyler looked at each other confused and then looked to Dash, only to find him watching the twins hugs with a puzzled look on his face.

"Twin?" he said finally in a questioning, puzzled voice.

Katherine and her twin look back to the boys and walk towards them, arms around each other's waists.

"This is my twin sister Kurai." Katherine said, waving a hand towards her sister.

"Hello Dash, Tyler, Jeri." Kurai said, nodding to each boy in turn. "It's nice to finally meet you all."

"Nice to meet you too." The three said in unison.

"Uh…babe, you have a twin?" Dash asked looking to Katherine confused.

"Yes, and it's a long story. I think our reason for being here is more pertinent" She said in a light, but serious tone.

"You're right; we should talk about why we came here."

"Then shall we go inside?" asked Tyler who was already at the door holding it open for everyone.

They all nodded and went inside.
