    Marissa was puzzled when a guy kept calling her Marina at the wake – until she recalled that many decades ago, she had a twin with whom she shared her life.

    Marissa and Marina were identical twins. They lived in Leyte and enjoyed dressing up alike in their younger days, leading many people to get more confused as to who is Marissa and who is Marina.

    But life wasn’t easy on the two when their father remarried. Just like evil stepmothers in the fairytales, theirs was bad and maltreated them. This led the twins to run away – first it was Marina, then Marissa followed suit.

    The twins found employment as housemaids in their hometown before eventually heading to Manila and later getting married, raising families of their own.
