Iris sat upside down on the couch in the eclectic living room, "Do we really have to?" she asked Bonnie, who was fiddling with the webcam of the computer.
"You are always complaining that we do nothing together," Bonnie sat down on the couch beside Iris's head and pulled her legs down, "We will do this together."
"But we're not a couple!" Iris kept protesting, righting herself and crossing one leg over the other.
Bonnie grasped Iris's chin in her hand, "I'm not going to argue, Iris. Shut up!"
Bonnie set the computer to record.
"Hi! I'm Bonnie Hollis," Bonnie tried to be as bright as possible.
"And I'm Iris," Iris sighed, fiddling with an ornament off-camera.
Bonnie elbowed her counterpart in the ribs, "Full name," she hissed.
Iris sighed, "Iris H Esau."
"We're cousins, our fathers are brothers," Bonnie continued.
"Well, technically, we're half-sisters," Iris pointed out, "Dad and Uncle Dub are identical twins."
"We live together and run a small shop on the high street," Bonnie was determined to ignore Iris, "And we'd love to be on the show because,"
"We have nothing better to do," Iris interrupted, "Because she hates the cinema and I'm not a big fan of nature hikes."
Bonnie turned the camera off and gave Iris a death-stare.
"What?" Iris said, "It's the truth. Grandma always said we shouldn't lie."
"There are boundaries, Iris."
"You of all people know I have a problem with boundaries."
