“So did she…”

“Perish?” My aunt closed her eyes and nodded. “She woke to the fire but when she tried to get out of the bed, the floor collapsed and she fell along with it with her daughter next to her.”

“Oh,” I sighed as a part of me sank, knowing I’ll never know my half-sister.

    1. I think she’s a calm person in general and she knows she can’t change what happened in the past but I do think her life has definitely changed because of it. Thank you for reading.
