If you were a twin, I'd still choose you
If you were a twin, I'd still choose you

‘If you were a twin I would still choose you.’
That was one of my favourite lines for my college best friend, Dan. I liked to tease him as much as he enjoyed teasing me. And whenever I said that, he would smile and just nod.
And I thought I knew him very well.
One evening I was with my girls when I got a phone call from him asking me to come over as soon as I could. He sounded ok, but not his normal self.
I had to excuse myself from the ladies and rush over to his house.
I met him in the room, he was acting a little strange but insisted that nothing was wrong. He wasn’t his normal self, playful, laughing, humorous. Just once or twice he tried teasing me, teases you could actually cut with a stick-so blunt.
Then he demanded for a bite which I went to the kitchen to fix for him. Then I saw him. There, in the kitchen. How on earth did he get there so fast, and I didn’t even notice?
‘Danny…?’ I started but changed my mind and dragged him put of the kitchen, into the room to confirm that my eyes were not playing tricks on me.
There he was, in the chair where I had left him. And I had his hands in mine as I pulled him out of the kitchen.
‘Whaddahe’…?
‘Haven’t I warned you never to drink?’ The Danny in my hand chided.
I quickly let go of his hand.
‘Danny, say something. Will you?’ I pleaded, not knowing which of them to face. I must be going crazy. Or I must be haunted by the ghosts of a book I read recently, I mused.
The Danny who was seated stood up and started to come towards me, I screamed aloud. I must have thought it was someone my ancestors offended that’d come back from the dead to hunt me.
‘Now, that’s not a nice way to treat a stranger.’ He said, ‘Darry. Darry Jackson.’ He added holding out his hand for a shake, and when I didn’t take it or even betray by as much as the flicker of an eyelid that I had heard him, he added again, ‘Daniel Jackson’s twin brother.’
It hit me like a bomb. And for the first time I noticed the song that was playing in the room, ‘Work’ by drake and Rihanna. I never knew he had a twin. He must have mastered the art of concealing before meeting me. Jeez!
‘If you were a twin I would still choose you.’
After three months of staying with the two of them, the words of my favourite line changed.
‘If you were a twin, I might choose your twin.’
