Excerpt for “Blood Ties”
“Wake up, sleepy head,” said a cheerful Kyle Roper to his snoring sister
Audra. Living next door with a key to her place, he often visited
unannounced…like this morning.
Audra stirred in her canopy bed, then slowly opened one bloodshot eye.
“Is it morning already?” she asked, releasing a Wild Turkey and Coca Cola
“Wooo…weee…” said Kyle as he waved the noxious fumes away from
his face. “I’m glad you’re on vacation so you can sleep late. What time did you
bad girls leave the bar?”
“One hour after closing,” she said rolling onto her back and pushing her
long chocolate-colored hair from her mascara-streaked face. “I feel like crap.”
“Maybe sooo…but if you’re gonna take Mom to the hairdressers, ya got
less then an hour to shower and make it on time.”
“Eight a.m. is too early to be getting a perm. What’s wrong with that sweet
mom of ours?”
“She’s an early bird, unlike a pair of twins I know,” he said pulling back
the covers to reveal his sister’s Asian inspired silk pajamas. “I gotta go. I’ll call
ya later.” He then left the room as Audra reluctantly rose from her bed.
Immediately she felt a severe pain in her abdomen and cried out, alerting
her brother just before he reached the front door. He raced to her side and found
her kneeling on the floor, holding her stomach with both hands. “Audra, what’s
wrong?” He lifted her petite body onto the bed. “Do you need an ambulance?”
Her face twisted in agony. Each word was a struggle to release. “Lisa!
Lisa!” She sobbed, horrifying her big brother.
“What about Lisa?” He shook her to get a response.
“Lisa,” she whispered before fainting. Kyle was shaking with the
realization his other sister needed help. He grabbed the nearby telephone from
the side table and frantically dialed Lisa’s number.
On the third ring, his brother-in-law Doug Smalley answered. “Hello,” he
said with a grumpy tone.
“Doug, I need to talk to Lisa,” Kyle said with urgency.
There was a moment of silence. “Do you know what time it is? She’s
asleep. She didn’t get in till after four. She’s dead to the world.”
“Well then…tell her ta call me or Audra as soon as she gets up,” said
Kyle. “Don’t forget, Doug.”
“When could I ever forget my in-laws?” The line went dead.
“Bastard!” said Kyle before returning the receiver to its base.
At that moment, Audra regained consciousness. “I need to call Lisa.”
“Don’t bother. I already did, and she’s asleep.”
“Your stomach feeling better? How’s your head?” he asked, sitting down
on the bed next to her.
“Can you get me two aspirins from the bathroom medicine cabinet?” Her
older brother obliged. He returned shortly with the tablets and a glass of water.
Audra swallowed the pills and liquid then said, “Something has happened. I can
feel it. Like when we were kids and Lisa or me got hurt…”
“And one twin felt the other twin’s pain?” he said, finishing the
“Yes! It was just like that…but much worse.”
“Doug promised to tell Lisa I called.”
“So you didn’t talk directly to Lisa?”
“No, but you and I both know it’s not just alcohol Lisa is prob’ly on.”
Audra rebelled at her brother’s accusations against their sister. “So you
believe Doug’s lies about Lisa using drugs?”
“Don’t forget I had a drug addiction once. I know the signs of a heroin
addict. When Lisa calls you, make it clear to her that she needs to get help if
she wants custody of the kids in the divorce.”
“If Lisa loses those kids, she’ll just die.”
“And that’s exactly why she must get help. I gotta go,” he said, kissing
Audra on the cheek and leaving.
After hearing the front door shut, she remembered her previous obligation.
“Oh crap! Mom!” She jumped off the bed and into the shower.
