Sisters Before Misters!

Just when I think that I couldn’t be luckier, my sister goes ahead and does something unthinkable. My elder sister is not actually my sister, she is my second mother, although she is only five years elder to me but she has been a nurturing person since I was born, as my mother told me that my I always fell asleep in my sister’s lap and she gladly offered help to my mother even though she was herself a child, as we grew up, she knew that I was a shy and a coy child, she always taught me to be tough because she knew that the world is cruel and if I don’t toughen up, I won’t be able to face the world, all by myself. Since we were kids, she made me watch WWE because she wanted me learn some moves for my self defense, in fact, when I was seven years old, I was climbing up to my house(I lived on first floor), a man came up to me and he engaged me in a conversation, I was a child and couldn’t figure out his motives so I kept talking, while talking I suddenly felt his hands on my thigh and then he started going up, suddenly I started feeling uncomfortable and then I remembered what my sister had taught me, to be tough, so I mustered up all my courage and hit that man hardly with my leg and ran away from his clutches. I might’ve been kidnapped or molested, but my sister’s teachings came into handy.

Later in life, my sister became my best friend, I shared everything with her, from my dissapointments to achievements, from my boy troubles to my happiness, you get the gist of it-EVERYTHING. As I turned eighteen , I started demanding my parents to send me on a trip with my friends, alone and obviously, my parents denied, I did everything to convince them- I cried, blackmailed them, requested them, but nothing seemed to work. Then, my sister wore the cape and came to my rescue, I do not know how but she managed to convince them. I was cloud nine. Although, she was a little skeptical(was concerned about my safety) and upset(she couldn’t convince our parents for her own trips) but she was even more excited than me and finally, I took the trip. This incident made me believe that she indeed is my super woman!

When my sister got married to the love of her life, I was the happiest person on the face of this earth, I was the most excited and I danced the most, but somewhere deep inside I was worried that now her love for me will be reduced because now she would be moving to her husband’s house. While dancing on the dance floor, I excused myself for a minute because I had tears in my eyes , of course she saw it and ran after me to check if I was okay. In the beginning I denied that I will not miss her or I will be happy to sleep on the bed alone(the old sibling corny arguments) but inside, I knew I will miss her the most. She then kissed me on my head and said that for her, it will always be sisters before misters. We both hugged each other and thought it was an Instagram worthy moment, we clicked some really cool pictures, saw some sister insta caption ideas and posted them instantly.

It is rightly said-“Sister. She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she’s the reason you wish you were an only child.”
