My brother was in an accident yesterday. Nothing in this world can prepare you for a call or message that says "your brother has been in an accident, we don't know how he is".
Growing up, my brother and I fought like cat and dog. I did not have any time for him, my little sibling who I resented for being the baby of the family and for not having been born a girl (I wanted a sister). My parents never tried to enforce friendship upon us, but by some small miracle, as we got older, we started liking each other.
A few years ago, when my brother got engaged and got married, we grew closer. Then, when I got married last year, my brother and sister-in-law were my biggest supports and champions.
I love my brother so very much.
The shock I went into waiting to hear news, it was terrible. But fortunately, my brother is ok. Bruised, shaken and with a very bad headache after being concussed - but he is alive and I can tell him I love him again.
