What were your siblings like growing up?
They were very different. But little similiar.
In my eyes my oldest sister were fun and had lots of imagination at first, then she turned dark and closed herself from others. She said that I was air to her. Later we started to share letters with each other and got to know us little better.
My older brother was into tanks and guns mostly. He spent in my eyes most of the childhood with my oldest sister and then later closed into his own things doing his tanks and shooting guns. Later his troubles reached my ears and made me really worried of him but I couldn't do anything.
My older sister was very home close person in my eyes. She loved playing house and I looked her up to. She was pretty much annoyed that I followed her and stole attention that she deserved. But I really liked her. When she turned dark and close herself from family I got worried of her. And it hit me. I got scared of my dark time that was coming ahead. I am closest to my sister now. I talk to her the most these days.
My little brother was the closest to me and we were always toghether as kids. We fought together a lot. He once tried to strangle me dead. He also tried to hang himself once but I didn't let him do that. We still jokely bully each other. We know each others secrets.
My little sister in my eyes is very much like me. She is just a bit more princess than me. I liked to play with cars more than with dolls. She loves dolls. I love her very much and she looks up to me. I am her role model. I am worried of her growing up. I am scared if she gets bullied and I am scared if she gets deppressed like I did. I feel like I need to protect her.
My littlest brother is very dear to me. He has these deep blue eyes, low voice and he is handsome. But he has temper. He can turn from sweetest and softest kid ever to this violent rampage kid. I feel like he doesn't feel like he is understood when that happens. I just wanna hug him. I wanna treasure him but I can't. That little monkey lives far away and I see him very little these days. And every time these kids see me they run to hug me.
