Brother (Companion to “Sister”)

By Justin Cha

Brother

……

I have been uneasy, Elder Sister. I have been awake for too long.

……

I do not know how to live with the creed imprinted into my mind.

It is all I know.

It is what I am.

It is the only one responsible for my existence.

……

Your words are comforting, Elder Sister.

……

……

No, I cannot feel the words. I cannot feel anything.

……

……

……

I feel your soul, Elder Sister.

……

I hear your soul, Elder Sister. It grants me solace.

……

I am not sad, Elder Sister.

……

You are our Elder Sister. That, we accept.

……

I can feel the words. I can feel your soul.

……

I am happy, Elder Sister.

……

I am holding you so that I never lose the feeling of your words or your soul.

……

……

……

……

Yes, Elder Sister. Elder Sister loves me.
