Millicent

A young girl who only realized rather too late that family is everything. Now she misses her older sister and wished she could turn back the hands of time and love with everything she is and had

Mama used to find you beautifully amusing. Although she didn't say it directly, we knew you were her favorite.

You were very much introverted with the captivating look you gave, especially when you were being helpful to Papa's old friends. One would say you had a soft spot for old people, but I always suspected you had a crush on Old Mangero, Papa's best friend. The other day, I told mama how I felt about your unusual kindness to him; she almost planted a slap on my face, "you are very naughty," mama said in a shruggy manner.

Well, I never repeated those words ever again, even when I clearly saw your kindness towards old Mangero. I quickly just remembered the heavy wave from Mama's hand. Millicent, your friends, came to check in on you the other day with so much excitement, and I wondered why they were always so happy when they came looking for you. As busy bodied as I was, I eavesdropped on their conversations while you were away to get them the beautiful robes you ladies needed for your weekend practices.

Your friends kept chatting about how special you made them feel and how lowly and kind you carry yourself. I smiled childishly and silently disagreed with all they said. One would say I was being jealous, but everyone knew if I heard something evil someone said about me, I'd almost kill them for it. Papa would say I had an Ironic personality, but you still loved me with everything you had. Your presence and your sweet scoldings were very much for me, annoying. I felt your care for me was too much; I needed a break every time from your kindness, how weird I was.

Oh now, Millicent, I wish you'd always disturb me with your love and kindness; I wish I could tell you how much I love you to cover up for all the times I didn't. Oh, now Millicent, I wish those moments with Old Mangero could play out again, so I could support and appreciate your soft spot for old people. Oh, now Millicent, I wish I came in to interrupt your friend's conversations the other day, to tell them how accurate they were and how much I am so proud of you.

I wish, wish, and have the chance to tell you how I love being your baby sister. Now you are gone; you said you'd return soon, but you lied. I guess I finally get to fault you for something. Now you are breathless, and I won't be seeing you for a long time. 

I hope you get to hear me say, "I love you," dear MillicentđŸ’”
