My sister moved out of our parent’s home about 5 years ago, and I had been missing her for such a long time. She left to attend a university in another state. I got to see her on holidays and during the summer, but it just wasn’t the same. After she graduated, she said she was coming back home to rent a Cordova apartment and wanted to know if I would be interested in being her roommate. My answer, of course, was a resounding yes! My parents thought it was a really good plan, too.
I am just 18 years old at the moment, but when my sister, Jenny, moved out, she was 18 herself. I was 13 when she left. I started high school the very next year, and I did meet a lot of friends. But I missed having her around. She is my best friend, and she always will be. She kept in touch with me often by making video phone calls to me, a lot of emails and text messages, too.
