Going Steady Right Up To The End

 fact of life

 

It was easy, but no easier than we’d expected. Weeks of meticulous preparation, that’s all.

 

We walked in quietly and nobody noticed. The first fell like a tree, a middle-aged man. Then two or three children, then more people we barely saw as we carried out our work.

 

There were just two young people left, their backs turned to us.

 

Sheen told them to turn round and that’s when we saw who they were. It was us, the Zaragoza Twins. It wasn’t a reflection, it was us.

 

“You can’t kill us. We are you”, said Heen.

 

“I can’t kill you. You are us”, I said.

 

“Sheen, you can’t kill me. I am you”, said Sheen.

 

“You’re right”, said Sheen.

 

So we left it at that.

    On behalf of at least a quarter of the population of my village, I beg you to reconsider your decision to finalise your blog “Zaragoza Twins”. Receive a fervent embrace from Dr Monkhwz and his flock.
