I fell in love with her the moment I saw her. I was happy to have her, my best friend, who followed me like a little shadow.

And then things changed between us. I started resenting her. The comparing, the labelling… by all around me, got on my nerves, though her love for me was unconditional.

One afternoon, I heard Mom’s screams. The little one had fallen down the stairs and was unconscious.

In those few long moments at the hospital, something changed.

I walked home holding her hand tightly and felt glad that I still had a little sister.
