Thursday Taster 99: Parallel Slip

Hello and welcome to a new Thursday Taster, the day when awesome writers all over the blogosphere come together to give you tasty bits of their last fiction. You can find the list here.
We start right where we left off last week 

"And if our parents forced him to go because they wanted him to socialise, he would just ruin all the fun for me and ask people questions starting with "what do you think about?" she said.
"Your parents wanted him to socialise," I wondered how it could be that bad but my relationship with my parents weren't really normal either.
"Well, more like there wanted him to check on me or something, I came back drunk at home a few time, I mean they wouldn't even have noticed if he didn't tell them that I was sick," she said. "But seriously, would anyone go ask, what do you think about the bear brewing process? The fermented bacteria seem to have been so sick this year, I'm not sure offering a bear to my sister is a good idea."
I shuckled, personally I found it funny.
"He really asked that?"
"The bear literally dropped his bear at my feet and ran to the toilet to whatever he needed to do there. I got my shoes ruined with the alcool and so sticky and they smelled like bear for a week even when left outside on the open and there was glass everywhere," she said. "Alex is cool as a twin but for party he totally suck. So what do you think about this?"
She turned around with a too familiar red dress in front of her.
"No way," I said.
"It's awesome isn't it?" she said taking that as a compliment. "So do you have a dress for Thursday night, we are going to dance salsa all night long."
Salsa, you needed a partner to dance Salsa and I didn't want to go anywhere alone with Amy knowing that she was going to ditch me to dance. But that wasn't really my main problem here. I had already seen Amy in this red dress, even if it was a different Amy in a different world with a different red dress, it was really too similar.
"I don't have a dress like this," I said, and I didn't intend to get one in a nearby future, I was still only 17 and my mother would kill me, my father would kill me, damn, even Jonas would know better. Amy bent down to grab a part of shoes. The high heal shoes, the exact same as in the other universe.
"See, those are perfect, aren't they?" She said.
"I don't think we should go," I said.
"Why not?"
I had hundreds of good reason not to go ranging from a group of guy is going to be running after us in a really disgusting street to I have class on Friday morning but I know that none of this was ever going to convince Amy of not going. My only chance was Alex but seeing how Amy felt about having her brother involved there was also a possibility that she would go anyway without me at all and then there would be nobody to save her.
