I raced to my room. I was so angry. I wondered what kind of sister I had. She’s really getting on my nerves. How could she want me to be mad at her when a normal human would prefer the calm and gentle way. She has always been soft. I knew she was so fragile at heart but I didn’t expect her to react like this.
I heard glass breaking in her room but I couldn’t bring myself to go there. She’s breaking me by acting this way but she’s totally unaware. If only mum was here, all these wouldn’t be happening. I heard a knock on the door and got up to open it. Aunt Liz was standing there. I made way for her to come inside the room.
“Jason,I came to talk to you.” She began.
“What about aunt?”
“Your sister” she stated and waited to see my reaction. I did my best to maintain a straight face.
“I heard when you both were talking in her room.”
“I presume you heard her crazy outburst. I mean, aunt, who the hell does that?”
She sighed and said “Talk to me dear, let everything out. I’m right here”
“Aunt, it’s just frustrating. For goodness sake, I’m looking out for her. How could she say all that to me? I didn’t blame her. I knew it wasn’t her fault. Must she be so hard on herself?” I talked for minutes. Aunt Liz just sat silent, listening to my every word.
“I’m gonna ask you a favour dear” She finally spoke up.
“And what would that be aunt?”
“Just give her time. I guess that’s her own of grieving her loss. Would you do that for me?” She asked me in the mildest tone I ever heard from her.
“But it hurts aunt”
” I know it does hon. Just give it a try, OK?”
“I’ll try. I’m not promising anything just yet.”
She smiled and replied, “Sounds like a promise to me. Now, I need to rush home and pick some clothes and foodstuff. Thankfully, Mr. Hubby isn’t home so I’ll just give him a call and let him know what’s up. Am I permitted?”
“Uhm… Permission remains ungranted till I get a hug” I replied causing her to smile. She leaned close and hugged me.
“Permission granted ma’am” we both laughed and she left the room.
I kept staring at the door even after she had left. I smiled as I thought about Aunt Liz.
She’s my best aunt in my dad’s family. She’s 49 but has the looks of a 30 year old. She’s never ageing. The woman just knows how to light up the room in all situations. I specific ally admire the air of authority she carries with her. Fair and a bit plump. She does not lack in the height department too. Sometimes, I catch myself wishing she wasn’t older so I’d marry her. A better than great cook she is.
She and her husband are a perfect match. They play like newlyweds each time they come visiting. The only thing lacking in her life is a child. They’d been married for many years with no child. She still believed she would have her own child. She had trained two orphan girls from childhood.
They’re both in the university. The first, studying medicine and the second studying pharmacy. She treats them like her own. I just hope she has her wish granted.
I decided to go check on my sister. I found her on the floor. I lifted her onto the bed. I got the first aid box and cleaned up her wounded knuckles. I packed the broken pieces of glass on the floor and arranged the room as quietly as I could.
Having done all that, I went back to my room to have a well deserved nap.
