Charlotte was sitting in her room, on her computer, as usual. She had aged up just a little whole ago but had no idea where she wanted to go in life. Her parents didn't seem to mind that she stayed at home all the time, considering Stark had moved into his own place. Her mom and dad were getting old and she liked to help out around the house. While watching some SimTube videos she noticed she had a notification on another tab she had up. It was her Simbook page saying she had a message from someone. Charlotte furrowed her brow at the screen and proceeded to open the unknown message.

Hi Charlotte, it’s Charlotte. What an awkward start already. Sorry, I’m not great with people. The only person I get on with is my twin sister. And for the most part, that’s just because she needs someone to look after her (I’m a couple minutes older than her).
I’ve just moved to Newcrest recently, though funnily enough I also grew up in a whole different town called Newcrest. Really says a lot about the creativity of the people naming these things.
But I guess that’s no surprise. People suck. This was a stupid idea.
Charlotte stifled a laugh. This other Charlotte did start the message quite weirdly. Charlotte thought to herself "That sounds like how I would start talking to someone". She was confused with how it ended and realized there was one more message from her that she hadn't noticed.

Gah, it looks like my brilliant sister thought it would be a good idea to snoop through my messages and hit send. Just ignore this.
Charlotte sat back in her chair and pondered the thought of what IF she messaged back. She decided to go into full stalker mode and clicked on the girls profile. She recognized her almost right off the bat as someone she saw in the "People You May Know" section of her Simbook. She clicked on her profile picture and started scanning through all her pictures. She didn't have many up, just some selfies and some pictures of her and a girl that looked exactly like her, which Charlotte could only think was her twin. She scrolled through some of her newsfeed and realized this girl really like political things because of certain threads she shared. No cute cat pictures on this girls wall! Charlotte clicked back on the message and sighed,
"Oh what the heck!"
Immediatley her fingers fell on the keys and she started to type.

Why were you saving it in your inbox? And that's so funny that you're coming from a town called Newcrest! I guess someone bought a bunch of land and got lazy with the names hahaha! By the way, why did you leave your version of Newcrest? I've seen you under my "People you may know" and I noticed you're name is Charlotte Bloomer. Does that mean you're related to that Isaac Bloomer guy? I've heard some stuff about him in our local newspaper. By the way I really like you're hairstyle, it's so cute! Is that weird to say? I'm not sure...I don't usually talk to people in person so this is easier for me haha. Wow I am totally rambling aren't I? Actually it's more like I'm playing 20 questions with you. Well anyways! Hope to hear back from you soon!
-Charlotte #1 ( since both of us are Charlottes (: )
p.s. I'm glad your sister hit send.
Charlotte pressed the send button and got up from her desk. She had some errands to run that day for her parents and it was about time for them to get up. For the rest of the day Charlotte Bloomer was on Charlotte's mind. Her pictures were racing through her head and Charlotte was zoned out for most of the day. By the time she had gotten home and taken care of things around the house she was exhausted and fell asleep on top of her bed.
The next morning Charlotte got up and immediately went for her computer. She quickly typed in her password for Simbook and looked straight at the messaging icon. Sure enough she already had a message back from her.

No, no, no - Completely different Bloomer! Must be a coincidence. What have you heard???
To answer your other question: I guess I was saving the message because I thought you looked cute and I like to hang on to what might be. I like theories and possibilities, more so than what's real. You know, like alternate realities and that kind of thing. What's real often ends up being disappointing, so I like to hang on to the what ifs.
You must think I'm crazy! But maybe you of all people might understand, with you never talking to people in real life much. It's sort of the same thing. Maybe you might just be the first person to get me. Maybe...
Anyways, I think I will need to close my Simbook account, for security reasons. It's insane the information they can collect about you through these things! But before I do close it.... would you maybe like to meet? Given that we're both in the same Newcrest now.
Charlotte caught herself smiling and put her hand over her mouth.
"She said I was cute! No one has ever said that!"
With her stomach filled with butterflies and her cheeks flushed, Charlotte read the message over again and realized how it ended. Confused she scratched her head and clicked the link that was attached. It popped up a map that had directions to Charlotte Bloomers house. It was right down the road from Charlottes! She couldn't believe it. Should she go over there? What should she wear? What should she say? She printed out the directions and shut down her computer. Feeling a bunch of different emotions she laid down on her bed with the directions clutched to her chest and thought,
"Should I go?"
This was a collaboration with my good friend, ThePlumbob. She wrote Charlotte Bloomers side of the conversation and I wrote Charlotte Belles part of the conversation!
Charlotte Bloomer is one girl from a set of twins that are in her story. If you haven't read it I would highly suggest you do, it's very dramatic and will keep you wanting to read more! Click the link below to head on over and start reading!
Also, plan to see a lot more of the Bloomer sisters!
