Generation 7, Chapter 5 : Is it really him...?

''Thank god, you're finally awake! It's like five in the afternoon.'' Gemma said to me, looking worried and stroking my leg. I was out all night searching yet again for Declan which interrupted my sleeping schedule.

''Is it?'' I said rubbing my eyes and started to look at Gemma in front of me. With the help of my mum, I finally plucked up the courage to ask Gemma out and she said yes. Ever since then we've got closer and closer by the minute.

''Yes, look outside and see for yourself. I guess we won't be searching for Declan tonight.'' She flicked her beautiful hair behind her shoulder and eyed me as I was still lying down. ''Now are you getting up or what?'' She asked me.

''Only if you promise me something.''

''Promise you what Robin?'' She asked me.

''That the minute I stand up I can come right over to you and give you a kiss.'' I replied back, winking at her.


I jumped out of bed and I gave her a passionate kiss on the lips. Whenever we kiss I still remember to the first time we kissed on Christmas Day; There was a sort of burst of excitement when our lips met.

Somehow we continued to kiss in the hallway which wasn't like me because I tend to keep my 'private life' private but I guess once Gemma and I got together it changed.

''I see you two are quite... happy.'' I state after seeing her kiss Tony on the cheek and them both hugging each other.

''She's getting all excited because I have a surprise for her later!'' Tony told me while she jumped in excitement  I had a strong feeling this surprise would be a proposal to her.

''Can't you just tell me now!'' She begged him while he grinned at her. Gemma and I continued to watch them as they expressed there love for each other.

''Do you think were like that...?'' Gemma asked me.

''Of course we are! I love you.'' I said. Gemma's face lit up with joy as I said the word love.


''Love. Do you love me?'' She asked me.

''Of course I do, your my girlfriend.'' I said, bringing her in for a hug.

Later on in the evening we all went out unto the terrace where I made drinks for all of us. Although Christmas was over it continued to snow in Bridgeport for quite a while.

''So.. what would you guys like?'' I asked Tony, Lindsey and Gemma who were sitting in front of me.

''Water.'' Gemma said.

''Orange Juice.'' Tony said.

''Is it aright if I asked you for wine...?'' Lindsey asked as a joke since they both asked for non - alcoholic drinks.

''Water, Orange Juice and a Red wine coming right up.''

''So guys, since Christmas has flew and were settled back in Bridgeport, when are we going to continue to search for Declan?'' I asked, putting the tray of drinks on the table.

''I suggest we start straight away!'' Gemma said enthusiastically.

'' I agree with Gemma, I think we should because I'm beginning to get home sick... I miss Twinbrook.'' Lindsey said with a sad tone. Tony quickly moved over to comfort her.

She sure wasn't the only one, I also was beginning to feel home sick. Tony and Gemma had no worries because they've lived in Bridgeport for years but Lindsey and I are new here and miss being back home.

Being in our own town.

Being Known.

Being comfy.

Being safe.

But mostly, being with our family.

''Excuse me for a minute, I need some air.'' I said.

''But Robin... were outside!'' Tony said laughing.

''Shut up Tony, I'm not in the mood for your crap.'' I said bluntly. Being far from home was beginning to really get to me, so much that I took my anger out on him.

''Well sorry Mr. Grumpy Ass.'' He muttered back under his breath. I was about to say something but refrained myself.

''Are you okay Robin?'' My concerning sister asked me. She could easily see something was eating me inside and wouldn't stop until she got it out.

''Fine. I just need some space... to reflect.'' I replied back.

''Okay, but just know I'm here if you need to talk to anybody, I am your sister and all.''

''Yeah... Thanks.''

My head was going crazy. I couldn't stop thinking about home.




My house

My job

My life.

I continued to look at the bustling streets below and thought about my family, mostly Declan. It's been four years since I last saw him. The day we both went home one summer to spend time together with family, after that he just drifted apart from us.

Another thought entered my head, what if Declan is...dead? I never even thought to myself that there is a small chance that my twin brother may be...dead. I began to shed a few tears but quickly wiped them off and continued to look down at Bridgeport.

Suddenly, a young man caught my eye down below on the street as he got out of a Cab. I couldn't see him properly but from what I could see, he looked oddly familiar.

''Quickly... Tony go get me some binoculars from the kitchen cupboard.'' I turned right back round after talking to Tony to make sure that man below didn't go any more any time soon.

''Why?'' He asked.

''Just get the fucking binoculars!'' I urged him by using swear words, funnily enough it got my point across.

He quickly rushed back with the set of binoculars and passed them to me.

''Thanks, I'll explain in a minute.''

I looked through the lenses to see the man.

It was our brother. My twin brother. He was still alive.

''L-Lindsey?'' I turned around and called out her name.

''Yeah Rob?''

''I-I...'' I couldn't seem to get the words out of my mouth, I was truly speechless.

''I-I... I what Robin?'' She asked me, jumping up from her chair and approaching me.

''I found him. Declan. I found him.'' As I said that they all jumped up in complete shock and rushed over to me.

''Is it really him...?'' Lindsey asked.

''Yes! It's our brother. My twin brother. We've finally found him.''
