Volume 1 ♦️Prologue
Dying hurts, it hurts very much. The scorching pain of flames licking my body, the sharp discomfort of breathing in toxic fumes, and the terrifying sight of my twin brother burning next to me. Yes, it hurts to die, and it aches to think about how my twin and I died.
Death itself did not, nonetheless.
As I closed my eyes for the final time, I wasn’t afraid, I was worried about anything. I only felt a soft calmness. I walked through the dark void of nothingness until I finally saw my twin brother. Even in death, we’re united, and I couldn’t be happier.
As we continued to walk, we noticed a bright light ahead of us, which stories said was a path to a new life. Together, hand in hand, my brother and I walked confidently towards it.
It’s not like we had a life before we died, abandoned at birth, my brother and I were raised as orphans in an orphanage for 16 years. We were judged, bullied and beaten on a daily basis. Starved and treated differently, in both school and the orphanage.
We were used to the pain and only wanted to get out.
I closed my eyes, the bright light blinding me. I’m ready for my new life, as long as my brother is by my side.
“One more push! You can do it, Ana!” A feverish voice exclaims.
“Ahhh!” A woman’s scream fills my ears, causing me to flinch.
Cries fill my ears as I slowly begin to wake up, “Ana! You have a girl” The first voice cheers happily as I feel my body shift.
Who the hell is moving me? I died and now you’re tossing my body around? I can feel arms wrap around me as something soft covers me.
I slowly open my eyes and I’m immediately met with a pair of electric blue eyes, a young woman looks down at me with a soft smile on her face.
“Sylvia, your name will be Sylvia” she breathes out, she turns her head “and you will be Sergio,” she says softly. Who is this woman? What’s happening to me? Have we been reborn?
The night my twin brother and I died was a painful night, but little did we know that this would only be the beginning of our story in another life.
