How Was This Possible?
Anais couldn’t believe what she was seeing. She felt her pulse racing in her chest. But at what she first thought she saw was her was actually someone else. But they looked just like her.
She didn’t understand how it could be the case. She had a lot of questions, way more than before. But she had no idea that what she would uncover would change everything.
An Ordinary Life
Anais Bordier lived a regular life just outside of Paris, France. She loved spending days at a time painting and getting covered in paint.
But she had no idea that everything in her life was soon going to change and be turn around.
Anais was bundled up under a blanket eating popcorn and scrolling through social media. Even though all her friends went out to clubs on Saturday nights, she preferred to stay in.
She found a promotion for a movie trailer she’d never soon before. But she had no idea what she would find once she watched the video.
Anais was born in 1987 in South Korea and had a difficult childhood. But thankfully she was adopted and relocated to Paris at a young age.
After growing up Anais still lived in France and was happy. But she had no idea that a single movie trailer would give shivers down her spine on dark Saturday night.
Watching YouTube Videos
Anais was watching makeup tutorials on YouTube when she saw the movie trailer in question. The movie was called High School Angel and she thought it had potential immediately.
She started watching the video and then noticed something quite strange on the screen that would have her pulse racing.
Lost For Words
Anais blinks four times thinking she was seeing things, but she wasn’t. You see, in the movie trailer, there was an actress who looked exactly like her!
The only difference was that the actress had an American accent whereas Anais had a french accent. It was like watching a mirror of herself. Anais was utterly lost for words. Who was this woman? Why did she look just like Anais? Nothing made sense.
Who Was She?
An hour had passed and Anais had spent the last 60 minutes rewatching the movie trailer and pressing pause on every shot of her ‘doppelgänger.’
The resemble was too uncanny! The more she watched the actress, the more she wanted to find out the truth. And when Anais finally did her entire world was torn apart.
She Had To Get Answers
Anais knew she couldn’t just stay quiet about this. She needed to get some answers, but how would she do this?
She told her closest friends and together they all tried to track the actress down, to shed some light on this nerve-wracking situation. But Anais had no idea what was coming to her.
Tracking Her Down
Anais eventually managed to track the actress down. It had taken a couple of weeks but finally, Anais had a name she could put to her doppelgängers face.
The actress was called Samantha Futerman and she was based in LA. Finally, she was about to get some answers. But the more she uncovered about the actress’s past, the more Anais was left feeling sick to the stomach.
Couldn’t Be A Coincidence
After researching Samantha and her background, Anais was lost for words when she noticed the similarities – aside from their physical appearance – between her and the actress.
This couldn’t be a coincidence, right? Nothing made sense anymore.
Adopted As Well
Anais found out that Samantha was born in South Korea, and not long after her birth, she was adopted by an American family and taken to New Jersey.
When Anais discovered this, she was left feeling sick to her stomach. Samantha’s background and upbringing were exactly like hers. You see, Samantha’s birthday was November 19th, 1987 – just like Anais.
Getting In Touch
Anais knew she had to get in touch with Samantha, so she dropped her message on Twitter. As soon as she clicked send, Anais was wracked with nerves.
Meanwhile, halfway across the globe in Sunny LA, aspiring Hollywood actress Samantha received a message that would change her life completely.
Sending The Birth Records
When Samantha read the message from Anais, she was just as lost for words. She knew she had to react fast so she sent across her birth documents to Anais.
When Anais received and read the documents she felt a shiver creep up her spine. Was it possible that Samantha could be Anais’ long lost twin?
Both Anais and Samantha knew they had to meet, so they arranged a Skype call to finally say hello. When both women joined the Skype chat, their resemblance was more prominent than ever! They had the same smile, freckles, and even their eyebrows were exact replicas!
But still, despite what they thought, the potential-long-lost-twins needed more concrete evidence. They needed DNA evidence.
Face To Face
After giving their DNA samples, the two women waited for the results. But with Anais in Paris and Samantha in the US, it felt like a never-ending waiting game.
The two decided to meet up in real life. No screens or video calls, an actual conversation face-to-face. And when they met up in London in 2017, it was a moment that would change their lives forever.
Awkward At First
As soon as Anias laid her eyes on Samantha in London, she felt a shiver creep up her spine. It was like she was looking at a mirror.
The two awkwardly exchanged a hug, not really knowing what to say or do in the situation. Both women had so many questions, but they weren’t prepared for the truth.
After meeting for the first time, it was awkward at first for Anais and Samantha. However the tension and silence soon vanished, and the two got on like a house on fire! They were laughing and gossiping within a matter of minutes of meeting each other.
And finally, the women received their DNA results. It was a moment that would change their lives forever.
The Moment They’ve Been Waiting For
The results were in. Both Anais and Samantha couldn’t wait any longer. They ripped open the letter and their eyes scanned the document. It seemed like all roads were leading to this moment.
Within a few seconds, these two women would know if they were more than just two women who merely looked like each other. Were they long-lost-twins?
A Happy Ending
The results showed that Anais and Samantha were in fact long lost twins! The two twins were over the moon with the result. The two hugged each other vowing to never let each other go.
It may have taken 3 years, but finally, the truth was out and both women had gained not only a twin sister but a best friend too. For the first time in their lives, Anais and Samantha finally felt complete.
