Chapter 1: Always remain close

Grace sighed, hearing her older daughters upstairs bickering. She was trying to put her two year old twins down for a nap, but Annie and Molly were making it a little difficult. She finally got them asleep and then went to Annie's room. She knocked lightly on the door.

"Come in," Annie said.

Grace pushed the door open. Annie's face was red. "What was happening with you and your sister?"

Annie sighed. "I don't know, Mom. We barely ever fight , but now we've been fighting almost every day. I don't know what's going on between us,"

Grace sat on the bed and pulled her older daughter close. "Sweetheart, no matter how close sisters are, there will be times when you fight. You and Molly are just getting to that age when you're going to disagree more on some things. I did it with Aunt Jen and Aunt Melissa, and this is not going to be somehting you can bypass,"

"But, I feel so bad about it. I don't want Molly and I to become less close,"

"You won't. Trust me,"
Thanks, Mom,"

"Of course, darling," Grace got up and went down the hall to Molly's room. She was sitting on her bed, looking like hse was about to cry.

"Hi, sweetheart,"

"Hi, Mommy,"

"I heard that you and Annie have been fighting a little more lately,"

Molly nodded. "Yeah. I feel bad about it, because I don't want her to be mad at me,"

"Oh, sweetheart, she feels the same way, but this is normal. I used to fight with my sisters all the time, but we also had a lot of fun together,"

"But what if Annie doesn't like me anymore?"

"She's always going to love you, honey. She may not like you all the time and vice versa, but you'll always love eachother. The relationship you two share is too special to let it be ruined by one silly little fight. You and Annie won't even remember this when you're older,"

Molly smiled. "I love you, Mommy,"

"I love you, too, sweetie,"

Annie came in the room, having heard their conversation from outside the hall. She sat on her little sister's bed and hugged her tightly.

"I'm sorry," Molly said, her voice muffled/

"Me too,"

Grace smiled at her daughters and how even though they had had a little falling out, they were still able to make up. It reminded her of her and her sisters, Melissa and Jennifer. They had always gotten along well, but as they got into their preteen and teen years, they started to argue alot more than usual. She pulled the two of them into a hug.

"I'm so proud of you, girls,"

Annie looked up. "What for?"

"The fact that you two made up on your own. You guys remind me of me with my sisters,"

"What were you like?" Annie asked.

"We were just like you girls. Since we were so close in age, we were really close, but then as we got older we began to bicker more than often. But, now, look at us. We're adults and we are just as close as when we were kids,"

Annie smiled. "I hope that we're always going to be like that," She said to Molly.

Grace kissed her heads. "I hope you girls will be, too. Family is such an important part of life and it would break my heart to see you girls not talk to eachother anymore,"

"That's never going to happen," Annie said. "Molly and I are too close,"

Grace smiled. She loved how her daughters were so close and that nothing was ever going to come between them. They really reminded her of her and her sisters. It made her so happy to see tthem like that.
