”Its so not even like that” Her sister said defensively.
”It so is like that” Alice replied mockingly as she threw her purse, keys and phone onto the marble counter.
”Is too!” Alice shouted at her phone as she picked out a green apple from a large bowl sitting on the counter and examined it for any bruises.
“Alice” Whined the younger sister.
“Tina” Alice responded in a sing-song voice, smiling at the frustrated sigh that then filled her ears.
She had always enjoyed the verbal sparring between herself and her sister because it made their relationship the same as any other pair of biological siblings.
They weren’t related by blood but according to Alice and Tina, that type of bond couldn’t have made them any closer. It was a big change from how they felt about each other when they first met.
Alice’s mother had married husband number 3 aka Tina’s father when Alice was 9 and Tina was 7 but by then both girls were more than used to the fact that they were their parents’ “one and only”. They practically hated each other and fought all the time, neither girl able accept the other as family.
They developed a bond during one day at school when Tina was being picked on by a group of girls and Alice had rushed over to help. The end result was a nice black eye for each of the girls that had picked on Tina and a week-long suspension from school from everyone involved. They had been inseparable ever since.
”-even listening to me?”
Alice snapped out of her reverie and sunk her teeth into the juicy apple, responding to her sister with her mouth full. ”No, but I’m sure you were saying something important”
Alice swallowed the pieces of apple in her mouth and opened it to respond as that muffled moaning grew louder, the exaggerated sound both filling her with irritation and even causing a wave of envy to course through her. Bette, her roommate, had brought home yet another girl leaving Alice to sulk over the fact that she still wasn’t getting any.
She threw her apple at the closed door, ”Some of us are trying to eat here!”
