Story Idea #1
Person A, summer break, college is around the corner, and he/she hasn’t figured out what he/she wants to be. He/She thought that a road trip alone will help him/her to reflect and find what he/she wants in life. Upon driving, a sudden storm came in. Lightning flashing, thunder roaring. Then *crash* he/she hit something. He/she went out to check to find someone. Then the storm quickly vanished as if it never happened. He/she went to check on the victim. Unconscious. He/she tried to pick up this random stranger and let him/her sit at the passenger’s seat but when Person A touch the stranger, he/she was electrocuted. Person A thought that maybe this stranger was hit by lightning then was already unconscious when they hit them. So he/she took some gloves and picked the stranger up.
Along the way, Person B suddenly shouted causing Person A to turn the wheel and stopped the car. PA asks if PB is okay. PB tells that he/she doesn’t remember the events before. PA asks if they have an I.D. PB hands over to PA. But when they touch again they were electrocuted. They both rub it out. PA was skeptical of PB’s I.D., he/she has never heard or do not know that particular place. PB explains the features, landmarks, and things about the place. PA tells him/her that it’s PA’s hometown. But PB declines and tells that isn’t the name. They have a good argument of it and both stopped, thinking that they’re not going anywhere with this brawl. PA then concluded that maybe PB’s got a little amnesia or concussion. Since PA cant touch PB, he/she told PB to treat his/her wounds with the first aid kit at the back. PA has no choice but to bring along PB in his/her little road trip.
Eventually, the two get along “surprisingly” well. But suspiciously they found out that they both have the same mannerism, moles in certain parts, birthmarks, and even behavior. From a news report from the radio, they both found out that the storm last night wasn’t just any storm. It’s a different kind of storm far from what they have already discovered and scientists and meteorologists are studying this strange activity. As the story proceeded, they concluded that PB might be from another world or parallel dimension based on clues like the places he/she tells, the people in it that proves that he/she might be from. The road trip turned out to be a journey to get PB home. But during the trip, they can’t however touch each other, maybe because PB isn’t from here. So whenever they hold hands or touch each other’s shoulder, they would wear gloves.
They were so attached that they secretly don’t want them to leave each other. They haven’t met someone just like the other. They both understand and feel one another. From their problems in life, school, family, love life. They both have the same problems. Then they figured out the next location of the next storm, similar to the previous one.
Upon PB’s departure, they both confess their love and tell them that the time they spent was remarkable. Then the lightning stroke, it isn’t as hot as other lightning, it was like a portal or the boundary between the two worlds. And in that brief moment, they shared their first normal interaction and their first kiss.
Then they parted. Their lives normally went on. Though they haven’t forgotten about each other. They both have clear decisions in life, what course they want to take, the job they wanted to have, all because they met each other. But little do they know, they are each other’s parallel selves.
