After growing up, my bff is my sister. From playing the same toys to reading the same books and eating the same food, we did all the work together. We even have the same friends at school. To some people, this may be strange, but this is because May * is my twin sister… and they say that twins have a common hobby.
Apart from May, I never felt that I needed anyone else. She is not only my sister and best friend, but also my confidante, I can believe all my secrets. Even if we went to a different university, our contact was not interrupted. At that time we may have developed some different friends and priorities, but we still talked about and shared everything…from new interests to school gossip…and the cute boys we like.
Soon after both of us graduated from the university and found a job, Mayn moved out after finding a job at the other end of Singapore. My parents and I stayed at home but kept in touch with May.
She would visit us during weekends and we would have lunch together to catch up.
It was during this time that I met and fell in love with Edmund*, a charming immigrant from London. I met him during one of my work trips. Edmund and I got along so well from the start that we started dating a few weeks later. Three months after establishing a relationship with us, he proposed to me!
Maybe we met Edmund during a family lunch when she went back to visit her family. I talked to Edmund about my twin sister, but it was still fun to meet another woman who looked like me.
And all of us are unhappy with Edmund because he cannot separate us. He even walked into the kitchen and put his hands on May’s back, only to find out that it was not me!
But May can accept and joke, maybe Edmund should marry us both? We laughed, but at that time I didn’t expect things to really happen…
Because later, during my weekly phone conversation with May, she admitted to me that she liked Edmund, not just as a brother-in-law. She said that besides that, she has more feelings. She revealed that she was passionate about him.
It was during this period that I met and went gaga for Edmund*, an enchanting expat from London whom I met on one of my work trips. Edmund and I got along so well as it so happens, that we began dating after only half a month. What’s more, a quarter of a year into our relationship, he proposed to me!
May met Edmund during one of our family snacks, when she returned to visit the family. I’d informed Edmund concerning my twin sister, yet it was all the while diverting for him to meet another lady who looked precisely like me. And we all were delighted with Edmund as he was unable to disclose to us separated – he even strolled into the kitchen and set his hand on May’s back, just to discover that it wasn’t me!
In any case, May took it well and kidded that maybe Edmund ought to wed the two of us? We ignored it, however around then I didn’t expect that things would truly turn out that way…
Since later, during one of my week by week talks with May via telephone she admitted to me that she preferred Edmund, and not similarly as a brother by marriage. She said she had more noteworthy emotions past that; she uncovered that she felt energetic towards him.
Hearing May, I expected to be vexed and stunned… yet I was most certainly not. By one way or another I knew May would adore Edmund as I did, in light of the fact that we regularly had similar interests previously. Likewise, May and I had never stayed quiet between us, so I was not astounded that she was so straight to the point with me.
I chose to do the unfathomable, I recommended to May that she could some of the time date Edmund in my place – without his insight. He was unable to disclose to us separated at any rate.
Furthermore, at our wedding supper, when I went out to change into my subsequent outfit, it was May who returned in the dress, while I remained out of sight claiming to be her. We had an enormous wedding and numerous individuals at the tables had not seen May and I for a long time, since we were youngsters, so we had the option to pull off it. We never mentioned to anyone what we did. I simply needed May to encounter the most significant day in my life similarly I did, and I was so cheerful when I saw that she was in tears of delight when Edmund kissed her.
From that point on, May and I have ocassionally “shared” Edmund. Some of the time, she will eat with him after work, rather than me. Or on the other hand they will go out on the town to shop, and she professes to be me. May and I have guaranteed each other to never uncover this to anybody around us.
Some of the time I feel terrible about keeping Edmund in obscurity, however the act has continued for such a long time, so how would we let him know? Maybe one day we may need to uncover what we have done. I love Edmund, however I love May considerably more. Furthermore, for the present, I simply need her to be upbeat.
