Sisterhood

Yelling, screeching, groaning
Noises echo through the homestead
Two sisters share one room
It’s a wonder nobody has died yet !

From TV to the side of bed
They fight on all aspects
But never judge a book by its cover
Human relations are beyond complex

The disputes play no significance
The bond among sisters is resilient
Even bereft of a moment of amity
Time with a sister is transcendent.

An Important Lesson

Movie-theatre1

So I was extremely excited . I came early and had already bought all my favourites from the candy bar so I wouldn’t have to go out in the intermission and risk missing any scene of the movie. Popcorn in one hand and coke in another , I was ready to go . It was a premier and me and my sister were going ecstatic ( mostly me ) to see the next instalment of twilight ( a teen series ). The theatre was pretty isolated.

” I can’t believe am finally going to see the movie ! ” I said erratically.

” Yeah , I know huh .” My sister replied while texting on her phone.

Just when we were about to enter the hall , a guy sealed it shut.

” Sorry folks , the show has been cancelled .” He said with a blank expression.

” Wait , What ? Why ?” I asked with a croaked voice.

” Well , the prints came late and its going to take some time to run it , so no-show today. We’ll get you a refund. Feel free to come back tomorrow , I am sure it will be sorted out till then . ” He said leaving me with a shocked expression and a pain in my heart .

Then in an unexpected turn of events , my sister stepped in.

” How dare you ! ” I turned my head towards her . ” How can you people be so irresponsible.We booked the tickets for this show two weeks ago. This movie is already releasing late in India and my sister was so happy to finally be able to watch it. You broke her heart. I don’t want a refund . I want to see this movie TODAY !” She yelled at the manager long enough to scare him to death.

After ten minutes he returned and arranged a show for us after half an hour and refunded our food ( which was half eaten ) and upgraded our seats. I was the perfect picture of joy. That manager was never to be seen again , well I did see one guy run like hell after seeing my sister who looked awful a lot like that manager.That day I understood my sister loves me a lot just doesn’t show it a lot. I loved the movie and learned a very important lesson – Never to get on my sister’s bad side , ever !

 

The Second Dinner

“Patty, I am so hungry .” I told my big sister , rubbing my tummy . “But you just had dinner .” Patty reminded me. ” But it’s already time for my second dinner .” I said impatiently . ” There is no such thing as a second dinner ! How much can an eight year old kid even eat ? Where does it all even go ?” She said pointing at my skinny body . This was the first time we were alone at home as our parents were out on dinner and mum had fixed dinner for us which was now in refrigerator . Me being a home alone movie’s fan , I was pretty excited what adventure the night would bring us and soon found out it was an empty stomach as Patty spilled our leftover dinner. ” Don’t worry Sam , help me clean this up and I will think of something , I won’t let you starve for your second dinner.”She said with confidence. Then she fished out a packet of Maggi (a brand of instant noodles ) .” But I don’t really like it ” I said with a disappointing tone . ” Sam , just try it this time , I will make it special for you . ” Patty said partly because she didn’t know how to cook anything else . I know its pretty easy to make Maggi and you don’t have to do anything but the way she made it was enchanting . Carefully adding all the ingredients and stirring them , she was so happy like she was the only one who could make it with such perfection , the expression on her face was of pure bliss.She cooked it with so much love how could I not find it delicious . ” Patty , this is my favourite dish now .” I told her while slurping it . She replied with her big smile that I adore. The Maggi my sister makes is still my favourite dish (for second dinner) .
