Fireworks

It was a normal night with my sister. I had set up a movie on my computer, How to Train your Dragon, apon her request, and we assumed the movie watching position. I laid down with the computer on my lap while she rested against my chest with my arm around her shoulder. We weren't too focused on the movie; she had found a ticklish spot on my stomach and tortured me with it most of the time. To be fair, I had tortured her a little myself beforehand, so this was payback.
But as always, the movie was good. But about halfway through, I heard something from outside. Wondering what it was, Sis and I headed to the window. I couldn't see anything, but she saw fireworks booming a couple of miles away from us. Fireworks? What's the occasion? But it seemed as though the fireworks were firing just for us.
Inside Sis's closet was another window that led out to the roof. She stepped outside first and sat down on the slightly damp shingles. She was careful to keep her balance as she helped my through. I sat down next to her.
It was perfect. The night sky shined with bright stars; they reflected nicely in her eyes. There was a slight breeze in the air that played and teased with her long curly red hair. I was lost in the moment, until we heard another boom. A red firework just went off.
She shivered, it was pretty chilly out. I held her close to keep her warm. We watched for a good ten minutes before the finale came. Afterwords, we helped each other back inside and finished the rest of the movie.
The credits rolled, and I closed my laptop. Sis's head rested on my chest; I took a look at her eyes, they were peacefully shut.
"Are you tired?" I asked. She shook her head. but she obviosly was. I laid her on the bed and put a blanket overtop of her. She snuggled into it so comfertably. She let out a little tranquil moan. I kissed her forehead.
As I was about to set up my sleeping bag on the floor, she whispered, "I love you, Bro."
I smiled. "I love you too, Sis."
She held her hand out over the edge of the bed, as if reaching out for me. I took it in my own hand and assured it that I was still there. Even though she seemed so far away, she was closer than ever before.
