Double Helix – Short Story Part III

If you’d like to catch up with Part I or Part II please click on them and do so. For the rest, here’s Part III:

I look at the photograph again. Something is not right.
“Wait a minute,” I say. “I don’t own a car.”
“Precisely,” Lyle winks at me. He strokes his moustache. The squat guy, arms crossed, rocks in his chair and smiles.
“That’s not me?” I ask.
“No, it’s not,” Lyle says.
“Then who is it?” I ask.
“Ahhhhhh…” Lyle says.
“Careful now. Delicately does it nicely,” the squat guy chuckles.
“Erm. Jerry, are you aware of being adopted?” Lyle starts.
“Yes,” I say.
“Well, turns out you have a brother. A twin, to be exact.”
“That’s my brother?”
“Yep. And our employer would like to find him. With your help, of course.”
“But how? Why? I have a brother? Where is he? What’s his name?”
“Jerry, you really need to focus on what Lyle is saying to you,” the squat guy tells me.
“Uh-huh,” I nod and look at Lyle.

      Nah – this one is a work in progress. I know where I want to take it, but my working life seems to intefere with my writing life just a tad too much for me to crank it out quickly.

    But why do they want to find him? And how can Jerry help them do this? Aww, now I have to wait ages and ages to find out more! Your quick style moves the story along at a brisk pace, the dialogue is sharp and contains right amount of detail to give each character their own identity. Looking forward to the next part!
