My Little Sister


Well, for this prompt, I could only imagine what it would be to have a little sister ~ someone resembling me- a mini me!

A little sister is a bit of childhood that can never be lost! What's the good of news if you don't have a sister to share it with? She smiles at your stories - for she knows where the decoration has been added!

Sisters don't need words. They perfect a language of snarls, smiles, frowns, winks - expressions of shocked surprise, incredulity and disbelief. Sniffs, snorts, gasps, sighs - that can undermine any tale you're telling. You can kid the world, but not her!

She is your mirror, shining back at you, your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, loves you anyway; your partner in crime, a midnight companion, she knows when you are smiling, even in the dark!  She is your defense attorney, a personal press agent, a forever friend. Some days she's also the reason you wish you were an only child!
