Jennifer gazed out of the window towards the setting sun.

Tomorrow  she was moving on, leaving this now familiar cityscape and returning home to where the sun played hide and seek behind the mountains before calling it a day.

It took a while but finally it was done.

She’d identified another doppelgänger, the fifth, on the Twin Stranger’s website and had neutralised her.

Only one more to find, and then she could relax at last.

She wasn’t going to allow anyone else to resemble her.

She had always felt unique; the only one of her kind. (96 words)


I wrote this little story after watching a TV program about Twin Strangers (unrelated lookalikes and not twins). According to some theories, we all have around six lookalikes somewhere on this planet of ours. There were some remarkable lookalikes in this program that you would have said were twins. This gave me the idea for my story. The Twin Strangers website exists.

  1. I really did not expect the twist at the end. Nicely done. Really like the imagery of “the sun playing hide and seek behind the mountains before calling it a day.”
