A Level Pair
The twins were roughhousing as they entered Mahtan's kitchen garden. They stopped at the obelisk in the center.
"Pitya, see the marks of our heights that were kept when we were young? Look how small we were."
"Hmmm, I think my mark is a little higher than yours, Telu."
"No. It was me that was taller."
"Only when you cheated and stood on your tip toes."
They moved back-to-back against each other to prove their claims, their movements freezing when they heard their mother's laughter.
"You're level with each other, Ambarussa. You have always have been two of a kind."
