THE SOUND OF APPLAUSE ECHOED IN MY EARS, THE WARM SUNSHINE KISSING
my face and making the surrounding trees burst with color as they danced in
the gentle breeze.
My twin sister, Sophie, gave a joyful whoop, her eyes sparkling like the
starriest night. Without warning, she threw her arms around me in a hug so
tight it was like she was trying to squeeze life into me, not out of me. I
hugged her back, feeling the graduation gown against my skin, a mix of
emotions in my stomach.
I was still riding on the adrenaline from addressing the entire graduating
class. As the valedictorian, I was required to speak, and it had been my first
time giving a speech in front of such a large crowd. My knees still trembled
beneath my gown, and I wondered if they would ever stop.
Sophie hooked her arm through mine. “Let’s go,” she said, her voice carrying
the pure essence of joy. “Dad, Mom, and Jason are waiting. Are you coming
to the party with me tonight?”
“I’m not sure,” I responded, a half-hearted smile playing on my lips.
Sophie rolled her eyes dramatically, her breath huffing out in the way only
she could manage. “You must come, Leah. It’s the last chance we’ll get to
hang out before I jet off. And for the record, you totally rocked the stage.”
“Really?” I asked, a wave of doubt sweeping over me.
“Absolutely!” Sophie replied with conviction. Her gaze darted over the
crowd, touching on each familiar face like a butterfly passing from one
flower to another in a vibrant meadow.
“Oh look, there’s Jaynie! I need to go say bye. She’s about to leave for her
grandmother’s funeral. What a drag, getting that call this morning. She’s
been crying off and on all day. I’ll give her your love.”
Sophie quickly made her way through the crowd, her graduation gown
draped over her arm and her Ferragamo shoes guiding her. It didn’t surprise
me. Sophie was the outgoing one of us, buzzing with energy and full of life–
the polar opposite of my reserved nature.
With a soft sigh, I unzipped my gown and took it off, neatly folding it as I
scanned the crowd for my family, my hands sticky with nervous anticipation.
A familiar figure bobbed through the sea of people, a wide smile breaking
across his face–Jason Wheeler.
His presence acted like a magnet, pulling everyone’s attention towards him.
The self-assured stride and crisp suit made him look like a character right out
of a romance novel.
“Hey, babe,” he greeted, his voice silky, causing a small shiver to ripple
down my spine. He reached out to tuck a wayward curl behind my ear, his
touch as light as a summer breeze. “Sorry I’m late. Traffic was a nightmare.”
His casual intimacy made me blink in surprise. A few moments passed before
I realized he had mistaken me for Sophie. The resemblance between us, likely
amplified by my special graduation hairstyle, tricked him.
As he leaned in a smidge closer, his eyes flickered with mischief. “I can’t
wait for our Aspen escape. Just us two… no interruptions… well, you get the
picture.” His voice trailed off, a playful grin spreading across his face.
