I woke up with my sister's face an inch from mine.

"The doctors said you can come home now.." she said a little too loudly.

Her breath reeked of chocolate, it made me want to gag. She saw my expression and quickly moved to the foot of the bed.

"Sorry" she whispered.
"Its okay, you just caught me off guard", I said with a smile. She managed a smile back.

My younger sister, as strange as it may sound, is my role model. She was care-free and could brighten my mood on my worst dates, but I don't think i could ever amount to what she it. She is smart, making the grades I wish I had when I was here age, she's athletic, star player of the soccer team, and she doesn't have to fight an all consuming eating disorder like myself.
