in a place where she rules
Brande was thinking about what to do with Bernice while she went to school when she heard a shout.
It was Mrs. Newery. Brande’s mother. The shout told her to get to school already. Brande was surprised Mrs. Newery hadn't seen Bernice. She shrugged it off. Since she had no choice if she wanted to get to school on time, Brande took Bernice by the hand and started walking quickly to the bus stop.
All the way Bernice asked questions. Nonstop and she didn't wait for an answer. Her stutter was starting to clear away, and soon it was just a slight problem. Like the real Bernice’s.
They passed houses. At one house a young boy came out. He had tousled golden hair and intriguing green eyes. Plus a cleft chin. His skin was pale and he was very thin. He yelled out Brande’s name.
“Brande! Wait for me!” he said in a voice that indicated he was five or six. He sprinted over and Brande introduced him to Bernice.
“Benny, this is my twin Bernice and Bernice, this is Benjamin or Benny as we all call him.”
“Who you talking to?” Benny said.
“Don't be funny, Benny! I'm talking to you and my twin.” Brande ignored Benny’s confused face and tried to keep things merry. But she was the one with the confused face when Benny pushed Bernice away and held her hand.
“Benny! That was rude!”
“Uh, Brande, I think you’re going cray-cray!”
