Pair-O'-Dice. (Identical Twins)
By Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado

Rated "G" by the Author.

Two young identical mirror-image twin girls share their story.

One look at us, and people are immediately floored.  They can't believe their eyes whenever they see us coming.

We are two peas in a pod.  We are identical twins, identical to the last freckle.  We look ecactly alike; people have a very hard time trying to tell us apart, especially on days where we dress alike.  

It's so fun confusing people! LOL

My name is Kessie Lorraine Dobson.  I am 13 years old.  My twin sister's name is Kossie Larue.  We are three minutes apart.  We were born thirteen years ago in Palo Alto, California; we still call Palo Alto our home: we've lived here all our lives.

We both have very thick, long, flaming red hair that falls to just above our waist, intense grey-blue eyes that tend to change color (depending on our moods), freckles on our noses, cheeks, arms, and legs (we don't tan; we burn), and are the exact same height (5'3") and weight (115 pounds).  The only difference is that I have a brown mole on my neck whereas Kossie does not, but people are too busy gawking at us to pay attention to that small detail.

Half the time, they mix us up anyway.  We even sound alike and sometimes (in fact, often more than once), we often speak at the same time or finish each other's sentences, which can be highly annoying.  LOL

Besides my twin sister, we have three brothers (Kendrick, Kenneth, and Kameron) and four sisters (Karissa, Karista, Koriander, and Kayla); there are nine children in our family (and all have "K" names to make it even more confusing for people! LOL).  We are a very big family, as you can see.

Kayla and Karista are adopted, but the others are extensions of our parents.  All of us "natural" kids have the same flaming red hair, changeable grey-green eyes, and freckles.  You can definitely tell that we are related; meanwhile, poor Karista and Kayla stick out like a sore thumb.  (Kayla and Karista were adopted from China when they were just babies; they are now four years old, but unlike us, they aren't twins or even related to each other by birth.  The only way they are is through adoption.)  Kayla and Karista are the babies of the family.

We love fooling poeple.  Sometimes we pretend we're the other twin, and then we adopt the mannerisms/quirks ot the opposite sister.  Or we will dress exactly alike or fix our hair the exact same way.  Or I will send the other twin into a store and then a few minutes later, she will come out and then I will go in, and people are like, "Weren't you just in here?"  It's a lot of fun playing tricks on them like that.  We get such a kick out of it! LOL

Like any other teen, Kossie and myself like to talk on the phone (or text if we aren't with our friends; somehow we have to always keep in close contract wih our friends!), roller skate, dance to the latest rock/rap/pop hits, shop for clothes, shoes, or books, watch "Vampire Diaries", "Ghost Hunte", "CSI", or "House" on television, read the latest teen books (we're both heavily into horror or "zombie" books), and write stories or poems (Kossie does horror or science fiction; me, I'm more the romance story type).  We have very busy, full, productive lives.

We don't go to church. My parents and the younger kids do, but we don't.  We don't really believe in God.  We're self-proclaimed agnostics "leaning towards atheism".  We know something is out there, but we don't go any further than that.  Our reluctance to embrace religion or church bugs our parents, but hey ... that's just us.  And as long as we're happy, who needs religion? We are both better off without that stuff, y'know??

If you ask me, I think religion is a big turn off; those Jesus Freaks bug the hell outta me!  I just wish they'd leave us the hell alone!

Anyway, we may be alike in a lot of ways, but Kossie and myself (Kessie) are also decidedly different, as I've mentioned previously.  We may fight sometimes; but then don't all brothers or sisters from time to time?  We can't always be supportive; we have to be annoying sometime in our lives! LOL  Other than that, we are both extremely close to each other; we've always been close.  We can't stand to be apart from one another for very long; if we are, then one (or both) of us starts to go crazy!!

Well, I'm gonna wake up Kossie and get the day rolling.  Let's see what excitement the Dobson twins can get into!  I will probably write in here another time; until later, this is Kessie saying so long!  Take care!

You have such a talent to write these stories & this one seems like it might be a bit of a mirrored image with you being a twin yourself...most times I read you, just so you know...don't be thinkin' no one does...Love & Friendship, Ed
