Dyomie Thornes
Marie Thornes


As Dyomie and Marie walked along the beach they could hear in the distance ACDC's Shake a Leg song playing. Neither spoke as they rarely did on these walks, just quietly being together like a real family as that happened to rarely. The sun beat down on their skin feeling more like the sun was kissing them even though Dyomie knew she probably looked like the sun was boiling her; Marie stifled a laugh when she saw Dyomie's beat red face and the older sister could confirm that she was probably going to be feeling a slight burn tomorrow.

They tell me what they think but they stink and I really don't care
Got a mind of my own move on get outta my hair
Shake a leg shake your head
Shake a leg wake the dead
Shake a leg get stuck in
Shake a leg shake a leg
, the song played in the background.

"Hey Tidbit let's head back before I get too burned okay," Dyomie said, steering her sister back up the beach and back to their apartment. Marie didn't fight with that notion at all, mostly because she was too busy laughing at how red her big sister turned, but Dyomie liked to think it was just because her little sister was worried about her getting a nasty sunburn.

When they arrived home the answering machine flashed a small red light, a voice message. Marie ran from her sister's arms and too the machine, though Dyomie didn't know why her sister was suddenly so excited, she smiled. Dyomie was very proud of the woman her sister turned into; excited, happy, and loving, not the loner she turned out after being left alone so often. Marie pressed play and a man's voice started speaking:

" Hello, Marie? This is Brad Law from the Olympic's gymnast team. We just reviewed your tape again and are happy to tell you that you made it. We really hope to hear from you soon just to confirm you're still interested and able to, a formality mostly. If you can I'd like to meet up for coffee after your practice on this coming Monday if that'd be alright, I'd like to congratulate you in person. Again, good job, we really hope that you'll do well."

Marie turned to look at her sister, her mouth hanging open and her eyes widening with every second. Dyomie's smile couldn't have been bigger. They both ran to each other at the same time, knocking over some piles of papers, and hugged each other, jumping up and down, and twirling.

"I can't believe it!" Marie yelled, "I actually did it! I actually got in!"

"This is amazing!" Dyomie yelled back, "I knew it was only a matter of time! I'm so proud of you Tidbit!" After they started to settle down, which meant they had stopped yelling the two sisters let go of each other.

"Okay, I'm going to get your favorite food and movie and tonight we're going to celebrate," Dyomie said, grabbing her bag that she had left by her bedroom door earlier and heading towards the door, "Which movie do you want to watch?"

"I don't know," Marie said dancing while she was sitting on the extremely worn couch, "My brain isn't really working right now."

Dyomie just laughed, "Alright I'll choose," she walked to the door, but before she left she turned around, "I really am proud of you Marie, this is the greatest news ever. I love you," she said.

"I love you too, Dy," Marie said, and with that Dyomie left the apartment.

She didn't have to go far to get the food and movie for the night and the entire way there she was quietly singing the song from earlier, though not because it seemed relevant to what was going on, but more because it was stuck in her head and the melody was at least happy, "Idle juvenile on the street on the street
Kickin' everything with his feet with his feet
Fightin' on the wrong side of the law of the law
Don't kick don't fight don't sleep at night,"
she sang, swinging the plastic bag with the movie in it. Today was great, the best day ever she could argue; she just pulled off her greatest heist yet, she got to spend the day with her sister which rarely happened, and her sister actually achieved one of her dreams. The sirens that were filling the city weren't any bother to her right now, nothing could.
