EXCERPT from DOPPELGANGER 2: ON THE RUN


My mind went back to Aedan, the doppelganger. He and Finn looked so alike. I had to shake that kiss off. It didn't mean anything. I'd never see Aedan again. That was a good thing. I had to believe that. He was with the doppelgangers after all and I never wanted to see them again. Still, it wasn't so easy to forget that kiss. I knew it had only been a day, but I could almost still feel his lips on mine. My stomach did flips at the thought. I squashed them. I just had to remember that he and Finn were not one and the same. Aedan was a doppelganger. He was not my crush. Not really. Finn was the guy I liked and as much as I hated to admit it, I barely knew Finn. Most importantly, Finn and I would never share a kiss. He had a girlfriend. Sure, he might never see her again, but that didn't matter at the moment.

            I turned the radio up a little louder. It was a song by Lady Gaga and I liked it. I also needed to be distracted from my thoughts. I started singing along to the song in my head. There was no way I was going to sing out loud and embarrass myself in front of the others, but I needed something to make me stop thinking about Finn and Aedan and doppelgangers. The doppelgangers. My hands started shaking again. I tried to regain control. I could not think about them. Well, I couldn't not think about them either, but I could try to distract myself. It was better that I think about Aedan and Finn or better yet Lady Gaga and the song on the radio.

            I stared ahead at the road. The song changed. I didn't know the song so I couldn't sing along. I forced myself to listen to the words as a distraction. It was a love song. I tried not to look back at Finn. I focused on the road. It was never ending. I looked at the clock. Two hours left driving. I could make it. The song changed to one I knew. I sang along to the song on the radio under my breath. Stay awake. Stay awake. Stay awake and don't think about doppelgangers.

            That was when I saw the flashing red lights behind me. Adrenaline flooded my body. Suddenly being awake wasn't a problem.
