“sometimes, being a brother is even better than being a superhero!”
Siblings are the first and most valued friends that nature give to us. A sister and brother, may fight like cats and dogs, but they love each other like no one else can. This bond is really special which should always be treasured. The endless secrets that they share, saving each other in critical situations, teasing each other with their crush’s name, stealing each other’s foods to clothes, and crying their heart out when the sister weds off and leaves the house, these moments are priceless which no brother or sister would trade even for a fortune. They might not say it to each other, but always know that they have always got each other’s back.
