Tara, Emily's Twin Sister

Emily had an identical twin sister, Tara. From what she could piece together, the birth was a perilous one. Emily was born first, and because of birth complications, Tara was trapped without oxygen for too long and suffered brain damage. Tara was institutionalized at an early age, and Emily was not permitted to visit her. Emily had no memories of Tara, and the absence of her left an ache for her twin that was persistent and profound. Every few months, she sensed her mother would become noticeably melancholy, and Emily knew that she was visiting Tara. At a young age, Emily wanted to talk about Tara but it was a forbidden subject. She knew that her mother would likely tell her father that Emily was asking about Tara, and she feared this would unleash his frequent rage. The lack of understanding about Tara and her condition left Emily with nothing but her imagination to draw images in her mind of Tara. She never did anything without considering Tara, and the existence of Tara was ever present in her mind..............

  1. Hi, I would like to be one of your readers, how do I do that? I love your writing and it would be really exciting to be part of this. I am a twin and can't imagine what it would be like to lose my twin especially an identical part of myself. There is alot to this and would like to see how this progresses. I know you are in the character stage and I feel that Emily probably has deep problems being separated from her twin. Her mother is cold, I don't get her yet and her father sounds totally evil. Her brother is the chosen one. Anyway, I put this down as a blog that I'm following and I cannot wait to read more!!!!
