Family Mystery 5: Sibling Regrets

“I always wanted an older brother,” Kari said.

“An older sister wasn’t enough?” Dani asked with a grin.

“I liked having you as my older sister. But I wanted a brother.”

“I’m sorry you didn’t have one.”

Kari nodded and looked away. She lifted her hands helplessly. “It is what it is.”

“I didn’t really like being the oldest,” Dani said.

“Why not?”

She shrugged. “The responsibility, I guess. Knowing I was going to get in trouble if you got hurt.”

Kari laughed. “So that’s why you were always so worried about my getting hurt! It wasn’t because you actually cared!”

“I cared,” Dani said defensively. She grinned. “It’s just that the responsibility made me care even more.”

Kari reached to hug her. “I’m just teasing you.”

Dani chuckled. “Just think, if we’d had an older brother, you would’ve had two siblings to tease!”
