  • Were five years apart and we look like twin (maybe it’s the makeup).
    Here’s how it is we lost our oldest sister five years ago and after that she didn’t have anyone to look up to anymore and I lost my memories of my childhood
    Our older sister wasn’t the best role model but she took care of us and wanted us to learn from her mistakes
    Even though it’s been five years since Lana has died I can still remember every detail. Like the feelings I got when the ambulance my mom and I passed going into town knowing something was deeply wrong. Even remembering two hours being in school that day I got called to the office and my mom was standing there with a warming, scared smile telling me my sister was gone.
    Before I tell anymore lets go back. Her name was Lana and she was my step sister. I never really acknowledged her as anything more than my sister because she had my last name. She didn’t like my mother and it showed but we were all still close. We grew apart when I started to get older because my mom talked bad about her “She just uses your dad for money’’ that would always be used against Lana even if it was true.
    When I was younger she took care of me when my parents were at work. Everywhere she went I was beside her. She loved me and was jealous of the love my dad gave me and not she but, she never showed it. I still loved her, that’s something I never got to tell her.
    After Lana’s death it tore all of us apart especially my dad because she was his oldest and your children weren't suppose to die before you.
    Jessie and I became closer because I was her sister and you tell your sister everything, it’s the only person that doesn’t judge you.
    Jessie made me her maid of honor for her wedding last year and that made me feel very special because she picked me over her closet’s friends.
    After her wedding it’s been fun being around her because I go to her for advice and she tells me how it is she doesn’t try to sugar coat anything.
    That’s why I love my sister.
