Sandra and Sandra stepped towards each other and hesitantly raised their arms. They came a little closer until they were a foot or so apart, and then slowly came together, their hearts thumping wildly. They wrapped their arms around each other and pushed themselves close, feeling the warmth of the other woman's body. They closed their eyes, expecting that they would suddenly join back together again, but nothing happened. They hugged each other closer as their large breasts pushed up against their counterparts, ballooning between them as they squeezed each other tight. Both Sandras hoped that this would work, hoped that this bizarre twist of fate would reverse itself. They squeezed each other’s wet bodies hard as their heads looked the other’s shoulders, gritting their teeth.
Sandra and Sandra kept squeezing, but it soon became apparent that nothing was going to happen. They came apart and stared at each other again, taking in the surreal and slightly horrifying sight of seeing their living reflections manifested before them. Sandra couldn’t believe she had touched another her. Surely this had never happened to anybody in history before.
‘It’s not going to work!’ They both blurted out together.
‘I know!’ They both responded.
‘Well maybe…’ They looked at each other and knew that they both thought the same thing.
‘We need to get our skin to touch’ Sandra said, blushing.
‘Yeah… we can’t merge back though clothes obviously’ Sandra replied, blushing just as profusely.
They took a step back and and hesitantly removed their clothes again, Sandra pulled her night gown up over her head as her large naked boobs flopped down. Sandra untied the towel and let it slip to the floor, her equally large, naked boobs jiggling. They stood before each other stark naked, their cheeks flushed and their eyes looking anywhere but at the other woman.
‘Oh jeez… this is crazy.’
‘Tell me about it, let’s just get it over with…’
Sandra and Sandra came together again, pushing their wet naked bodies close. Their boobs flattened together, their nipples brushing against their equal counterparts. They gasped out in shock at the surreal situation they were in as they wrapped their arms around each other’s waists and squeezed their bodies tight, teeth gritted once again.
They tried this for a good minute or two. They even pushed their feet back into the carpet, heaving against each other as they willed their bodies to become one again. The two naked, identical women grunted together in exertion as their hands gripped their wet backs.
They suddenly pulled back, breathing heavily.
‘Shit!’ they both exclaimed together.
‘Wait!’ Sandra said. ‘Maybe we’re doing this wrong!’
‘Yes I know what you mean, we’re trying to merge the wrong way!’ Sandra replied.
Sandra and Sandra moved so that they were side by side. And then pushed up against each other again, the opposite way to how they had split before. They pushed against each other for a few moments longer, until they parted, throwing their hands up in expiration.
‘Nope!’ Sandra said. ‘It’s not going to work.’
‘Are we stuck this way?’ Sandra asked, her eyes widening.
They both stood in shock for a few moments as the implications of this started to sink in.
‘Before anything else we need some clothes.’
‘You’re right! This is ridiculous. We can’t just stand here naked!’
Sandra and Sandra both turned towards the closet, bumping together. Sandra let Sandra go in front of her, and they both quickly grabbed a couple of t-shirts and some spare pyjama bottoms. They quickly changed and walked back into the bedroom again, looking at each other desperately.
‘Well… what’s the next step?’
‘Jeez, I don’t know. Trying to push back together isn’t going to work obviously.’
‘Yup, we need a different plan.’
They both ran their hands though their hair, mimicking each other perfectly. They both laughed nervously at their in-sync mannerisms, their eyes darting from side to side. Suddenly they looked over at their tablet lying on their bedside table.
‘I guess… the internet might have an answer?’ They both said together.
Sandra and Sandra sat together on the edge of their bed. Sandra was holding the tablet and scrolling through pages desperately. They had spent the previous half an hour looking for any answer or explanation to the impossible situation that they had found themselves in. They had typed in all manner of queries regarding a person doubling, or splitting, or multiplying, or a dozen other similar questions. The only results that they had gotten were stories or scenes from TV and movies. They even came across a website that had erotic fiction regarding clones. Nothing was based in reality and nothing was useful. They kept passing the tablet back and forth, as each tried out different searches.
‘There’s literally nothing!’ Sandra groaned. ‘We can’t push ourselves back together and there’s nothing online about this problem. What other options do we have?’
Sandra leaned forward, holding her head in her hands. ‘Maybe we have to find somebody, a doctor or scientist or something. Maybe they can help, although I don’t want anybody to know about this.’
‘You’re right. We have to find a solution ourselves before we ask for anybody’s help. I can’t even comprehend what anybody else will think of this!’
‘What would my… our families say? Sandra gasped suddenly. ‘What about Melissa? What would she think?’
Sandra winced. ‘We can’t tell her, not yet anyway. The shock would be too much, especially after the last few months.’
‘That’s true. Telling people is the last option if we can’t do anything else ourselves.’
‘I guess we have to keep looking, maybe something will come up.’
‘Or maybe we’ll wake up tomorrow and we’ll be one again, or it will all have been a dream.’
‘Oh I hope so, we need a miracle!’
Looks like we’re living a real life miracle right now’ Sandra said, smiling shyly at her twin. She looked down again at the tablet as she scrolled endlessly through random pages.
Sandra looked across at her doppelgänger. She had never seen her face from this angle before, except in photos. It was utterly bizarre. She watched herself, utterly fascinated. The way her twin’s eyebrows furrowed and the way she bit her lip as she looked intently at the tablet screen, were mannerisms which she never knew she had. To be in the presence of another person who claimed her whole identity and all her memories was jarring, yet oddly fascinating.
She watched her for a few moments longer, until Sandra passed her the tablet and she started looking again.
Sandra leaned back and sighed deeply. She looked across at her double and watched her intently, thinking the same thoughts as her twin had just been thinking about her. After a few minutes she pushed herself back and up the bed, leaning her head against the headboard. She pulled her legs up and wrapped her arms around them as she continued to watch the other Sandra from behind.
Sandra kept scrolling. She thought she came across a few interesting articles, but they turned out to be false leads. She carried on for a little while longer before she decided it was the other Sandra’s go.
‘Do you want to look again…?’ She said, turning around to her twin.
But the other her was sound asleep, her head resting against the headboard. There was a calm look on her face.
Sandra smiled and turned around, carrying on her search. She felt her eyelids get droopy, but she was determined to power through.
Maybe I’ll just lie back for a few minutes… she thought to herself as she placed the tablet back on the bedside table. She lay backwards and stared at the ceiling, thoughts racing through her head.
A few minutes later she was sound asleep too.
