Plot Summary: The story is about Elly, and the identical twins Sira and Cipher (stage names). Sira and Cipher have a secret (several actually), but Elly finds out straight off that they switch off going to high school, and they’re spooked enough about it to have a contest with her. If she can tell them apart after a month, they’ll tell her why they do it. If she can’t she’ll never tell anyone that they do it.
