Frederica rolled her eyes. Nila chuckled.

“You know, I always thought it was just a stereotype that twins have opposite personalities,” she said.

“It is,” Josephine said. “In fact, we’re actually quite similar. We just overcompensate in opposite directions.”

“Speak for yourself,” Frederica said. “I’m nothing like you.”

Josephine nodded sarcastically.

“Whatever you have to tell yourself.”


After lunch, they headed back to the dorm. Frederica opened her door but Josephine and Nila lingered in the hallway.

“Care to join us?” Josephine asked.

Nila glanced at Frederica and back to Josephine.

“Thanks, but I have a biotechnology assignment to finish up before tonight,” Nila said. “But, uh, you know where to find me if you need anything in the meantime.”

“I may take you up on that,” Josephine said.

Frederica pulled her sister into her room and waved goodbye to Nila.

“And you’re still as psychotic,” Frederica snapped.

“That’s ableist, dude,” Josephine said. “Isn’t that what you always tell me?”

Frederica sighed.

“Yes, you’re right, I’m sorry,” she said. “Just… tone it down a little, okay?”

“I’ll see what I can do,” Josephine replied.

“Thanks,” Frederica said. “Now… what movie do you want to watch next?”
