Someone like me
"I am Eugene Davis. Who are you?" He said and Mai's eyes went wide.
She was too shocked to say anything. 'Oliver and Eugene are twins? What the hell?' She thought.
Eugene placed his brown coat on the nearby chair and walked towards her.
"Hello? You in there? Who are you? What are you doing here?" He said while waving his hand in front of her.
Mai shook her head and said "I am Mayra Thomes. You can call me Mai." She said not too sure what to say.
"What are you doing here, Mai?" He said with a smile.
"Umm ahh Well you see Oliver was sick, so I brought him home." She said trying to overcome her shock. She noticed that Eugene's expression went from smiling to angry.
"That idiot scientist. I told him to take a leave today." He started saying angrily "Well I assume you're one of his students then?" he asked again smiling. She nodded.
He sat on the chair and motioned her to sit on the chair too. She obliged with a smile and sat on the chair opposite to him, placing the cup of coffee on the table in front of her.
"So" she said. Eugene looked at her signaling her to continue "You're Oliver's twin brother, right?" She asked him. He looked at her and chuckled. Mai was confused.
"Well that's obvious, isn't it? We're identical twins." He said while laughing softly.
"Yeah, sorry stupid question." she said while laughing awkwardly.
"So I guess you're someone special to Noll, aren't you?" He asked her with a smirk plastered on his face.
"Noll?" she didn't know what he was talking about.
"Oliver, I mean." He said.
Mai started blushing. "Me...special...to Oliver? What are you talking about?" she said embarrassingly.
"Well yeah. Noll doesn't let anyone call him by his first name. Moreover he will never let anyone drive him home expect me or Lin. So you are special." He explained. Mai stared at him in shock.
She didn't know what to say to him.
"You're just making that up." She looked in different direction not wanting to believe a word what he was saying.
"Well whatever you think but I know my brother better than anyone so I can tell that." She bit her lip.
She wanted to be special to him but she knew a person like Oliver will never express his feelings.
They talked for hours. He told her about himself and Oliver. He told her that they both were orphans until Luella and Martin took them in. Mai told him that she was an Orphan too but she was living on her own.
'It's so strange that these two are brothers. Oliver is so composed but Eugene is so free. He is always smiling where as Oliver hardly ever smiles.' she thought.
"You're still here?" Someone said from behind her.
She turned on her chair and saw Oliver leaning on the door frame with his arms crossed over his chest. She raised her eyebrow.
"You don't remember, do you?" She asked him. Oliver looked at her, confused "Remember what?" he asked.
Mai sighed. "Good. Then I take my leave now." She stood up.
Before leaving she turned towards Oliver and said "Restrain yourself from coming to college tomorrow if you don't fell good." He nodded.
Eugene raised an eyebrow at his brother's response.
After that Mai left. She was thinking what Eugene had told her 'I am special? Please even if I want to be special, Oliver will never love me in the same was I do.' She sighed 'Why did I have to fall for someone like him?' A tear rolled down her cheek but she wiped it away.
At Oliver's house...
"You like her, don't you?" Gene asked Noll.
"I don't know what you're talking about, Gene?" Noll resorted.
"Take her before someone else does and you lose her forever." He said while picking up his coat and going towards his room. Noll stared at the placewhere Mai was sitting.
"Why would she even love someone like me?" Noll sighed and went to his own room.
