I was sitting in the living room one rainy night when someone knocked on the door. I moved to get up to answer it but my mother moved to the stairs quickly.
She looked scared of whoever was on the other side and we didn't even know who it was.
"Don't worry mom, I'll get it," I called to her. “Lock the doors,” she said, shaking her head. “Now!”
I frowned and got up to answer the door despite my mother's worry. I blinked a few times as I saw my sister standing there soaked. "It's Alexa!" I shouted up to my mother.
"No, it's not," my sister said from the top of the stairs. I turned and looked at her with my mouth hanging open. "I'm right here."
I looked back to the girl standing in the living room. Her eyes were dull and her smile looked wrong. "But...then who is the girl in the living room?" I asked.
"Alexa," the Alexa in the living room answered, tilting her head to the side. She then pointed to the Alexa on the stairs. "She may look like me but it's not me." She stepped closer to me and I fought the urge to step away.
"That's not true," the Alexa on the stairs growled. She squeezed her eyes shut and shook her head. "I mean, it is true but only because she's not me!"
The Alexa closest to me grabbed my hand and pulled me close. "You're going to have to trust me on this," she whispered in my ear. "I'm the real one. She's sucking the life out of me.I can't save everyone but I can save you. Run."
I looked between the two Alexas and then to my mom. Then I ran. I don't know why I believed her but I couldn't risk it.
I ran as far as I could and only stopped when I found somewhere I could hide. When morning broke, I slowly left my hiding spot and started back towards my house.
I saw police cars as I walked down the road and noticed that they were all in front of my house. I started running and was grabbed by an officer before I could get any closer.
Then I saw them dragging my sister out in handcuffs. Her eyes were bright and her smile covered her entire face. She was covered in blood.
I could barely hear the police tell me what had happened. My entire family but Alexa was dead. I looked to Alexa again and wondered which one she was.
