Irish Twins

“I’ll go if you go.”

This was how it was between Marley and her sister. In order for either of them to overcome the slightest inertia, one needed the validation of the other.  Even when they were babies, Marley wouldn’t feed unless her sister was hungry, too.

But this time, she felt the need to resist.

“I don’t want you to go with me.”

The words felt like marbles, each syllable toppling over the other in a slippery cascade. She immediately sought her sister’s eyes, begging for approval – a reflex that couldn’t be helped even in the face of conflict.

  1. Oo wow. This hits.

  2. it’s like elena ferrante **heart eyes**
