The Sister

The Sister

This is a true story based on an event that happended to me, my mother and my brother when he was only one year old. Of course it is impossible for me to recreate the scene as it was - because I was also very young and can’t remember all of the actions. But the things written in this story relay on what my Mom told me several times. It’s about how I saved my brothers life.

Chapter 1

The Sister

The four-year-old girl who was playing with her brother in the one-second turned around and suddenly started to scream brutally when she saw his tiny body swimming in the sea.

Usually, the mother was directly behind the kids, sitting on a towel, reading a book, and looking up every ten seconds to check if her children were alright. 

But she wasn’t. The girl screamed louder.

There were people around the siblings. 

One elderly couple and two teenagers laying at the end of the beach. For the older man, it was obvious that he was going to help. He wrapped up his shirt and within a few seconds, he was able to run after the little boy. 

But the girl didn’t even notice.

She had two options made up in her head. 

Looking for her mother or trying to go after her brother on her own who she saw drifting into the sea further and further with every passing second.

She shouted her mother’s name because she knew she couldn’t swim that well to rescue her brother. 

But then her mother finally ran out of the restaurant which was located only a few steps away from the small girl. 

Her mother was looking terrified as she had never heard her daughter scream with that much pain in her voice. Then she saw her son with his head facing the water; he couldn’t cry, did not even flinch.

“Mama”, shouted the girl. She wanted her to do something. She needed her to rescue her brother. A few seconds later as her mother was running over the stone beach, still wearing her clothes and didn’t even bother to strip off her shoes the little girl was still screaming after her brother tears streaming down her face.

Water was running against the mother’s waist, her trousers sucking up the water.

Finally, finally, she reached him. Holding him up.

His eyes were red, caused by the sault, his tiny breast standing still.

    No! You are so brave! Is he okay now? Did he die? I don’t know when you published this but I hope he’s okay!

      Hello Taryn,
      I’m fine, my brother is fine and my Mum as well.
      Just this morning I checked my mails and got a notification that you commented on my work.
      I didn’t even remember that this existed and didn’t imagine that someone would read this (then I read it myself and I had to edit it immediately).
      Crazy how a one year difference can affect your writing style (and grammar).
      Wish you all the best,
