“I have a question” Mina asked as they stretched on their beds after the stable cleaning and a shower.

“Fire away.”

“If I saw something yesterday – and the day before, too – then, well, aunt Georgiana…”

“Yep. Looks like it. Fancy that.”

DPDT – Chapter 17 (part 3 of 4): And sing and dance and laugh

The group gathered around Mina was making significant inroads into her container of cookies and she felt just a tiny bit of relief at the thought of small box in her backpack, where several handfuls of heart-shaped cookies were waiting safely until the afternoon.
“So, what’s the deal?” one of the girls from her Italian class asked. “Rose was handing the cookies out yesterday, and I thought it was for both of you.”
“She’s a day younger” Rose patted Mina’s shoulder. “Or, rather, fifteen minutes, but over the midnight divide.”

The large Tupperware container was met with signs of disbelief.

“You baked this?” Sebastien poked a round cookie suspiciously.

“Yes, for the tenth time. Mom, Dad, Mina and me. It’s one of Mom’s favourite recipes. Seriously, people, hadn’t you ever seen a cookie?”

DPDT – Chapter 06 – And then we soar so high

Mina sighed, heaving up the rolling suitcase to put it on the tiny porch.
“You know what…” she felt her voice tremble. “Even… even if this doesn’t work out. Even if we are found out in like a week time. We will still have that August.”
“And a bit of July, and a bit of September” Rose corrected.

“Holding out until Halloween means that we’ll be spending our birthday in the wrong houses” Mina pointed out.

“What? What do you mean?”

“I mean that October twelfth is earlier than November first.”

“October eleventh” Rose corrected her mechanically. Read the rest of this entry »

DPDT – CH 04 – And we plan the same plans

Chapter 4: And we plan the same plans

The Plan was a simple piece of paper stuck to the wardrobe door, with each main point spawning several smaller ones. Each was carefully bulleted or numbered in thick, colourful marker and main points were underscored.
“Mom makes plans like this for every family event. She is the organiser and keeps everyone to their deadlines. Only she makes it on the computer, so she can add points when she wants, and she sends e-mails with reminders to everyone.”

Chapter 3:  We think the same thoughts

The cabin wasn’t very big. Two beds, a dresser, a table, two rickety chairs and a wardrobe left very little free floor space – just enough to move one of the chairs to the middle of the rug and put a box of cookies on it. It was just close enough to let them reach towards said box comfortably from both beds. They sat in silence, munching the cookies and looking suspiciously at each other across the tiny room.

Chapter 2: While still being so different

Their things were packed in a matter of minutes and their cabin mates regarded them sorrowfully (some, however, with hidden relief) as they trudged down the lane to the last cabin of the camp. It was separated from the other, lived-in cabins by a few empty ones and had the form of an old farmhouse – it had been there since the camp had been built, just after the war, most probably.

Double Pride, Double Trouble – CH 01 – Because we are too similar

Chapter 1: Because we are too similar

“Darcy! Get off her this instant!”
Everyone froze. Two bodies, just a second ago entwined on the soft surface, went rigid.
“Get. Off. Her. Now.”
The trainer’s voice was ice calm.
