Well hello there, my name is Mackenzie Georgia Henderson I am 22 years old and I am a world famous fashion model. Anyway my older sister's name is Paige Cleo Henderson she is 23 years old and a very famous actress. Paige and I love each other dearly, you can never separate us! People say we're the ultimate sisters. 

But we weren't always like this, you know close. When Paige and I were in my high school years, we basically ignored each other. We would act as if though the other didn't exist. 

Today I am telling you the story of how my sister and I resolved our problem and finally in the first time ever, loved each other. 

_____________________________________________________

It all started on a regular school day, mom and dad were asking Paige how school was and how she did on her studies while-- I just sat there like I was invisible. My parents never acknowledged me, Paige was always their favorite. 

"Alright Paige! Be safe to school!" mom said to her

"Yes mother!" Paige replied then kissed dad on the cheek and stared at me, then she looked away.

Dad glanced at me and his eyebrows met.

"Max get out of the house you brat! We don't pay the school for nothing!" dad shouted at me. I quickly grabbed my backpack and left the house.

"It's Mack... and you don't pay my tution... I do" I whispered to myself while walking down the road.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Once I finally got to school I went by my locker, which was right next to Jessica's locker... Paige's best friend. I quietly walked up to my locker and opened it, surprise surprise a ton of hate letters. I'm used to it.

I grabbed my books and slammed the locker shut, at that time I was so angry and sad at the same time. Unluckily for me, Jessica showed up with my sister and their gang.

"Oh my god! You got another A+? I only got an A! jealous!" Jessica squealed at my sister

"It's alright Jess! I probably just got lucky!" Paige replied

"So... party at my mansion at 8?" Charlene asked

"I am so down" Paige and Jessica said together

They were laughing down the halls but they stopped when they were in front of me, I lowered my head down.

"Oh look, it's your 'sister' Paige" Charlene said disgusted

"Ugh, don't even say the 's' word" Paige replied and they all laughed like witches. I clutched my books as tears fell on my cheeks.

I mustered all my courage and looked up to see Paige staring at me with her blank eyes. I ran away and locked myself in the janitor's closet.

By the time I got out there it was already dismissal. Paige was outside her classroom waiting for me, my mother had said that we would ride together. 

She led the walk and headed for the door. But before we got there she went a little detour and went into a classroom, she said she forgot her phone there. But as soon as we entered the classroom, the door shut and so did the lights

"AHH!! MACK TURN ON THE LIGHTS!" Paige screamed. At that time I forgot that Paige was afraid of dark because I was shocked that she even knew my name. I quickly turned the lights on only to find Paige looking coldly at me.

"THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!" she screamed at me. I got angry and shouted back

"HOW IS IT MY FAULT? IT'S ALWAYS MY FAULT!" I screamed.

"IF YOU HADN'T WENT TO YOUR LOCKER JESSICA WOULDN't HAVE TEASED YOU!" I was struck... What did she mean?

"What??" I asked

"If you hadn't been on your locker I wouldn't have had to tease you"

"Why??"

"Mack.... You're my sister"

I got angry at the sound of 'sister'. I clutched my fist and heated up.

"SISTER? AFTER EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE...?" it seemed as though she was shocked.

"Mack... What did I do wrong??"

"YOU WANT TO KNOW? FINE!" I breathed in and started to pur out the feeling I've been keeping in since forever

"YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN A SISTER TO ME!! YOU GIVE ME BLANK STARES! YOU STEAL EVERYTHING FROM ME! YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW THAT BECAUSE OF YOU NOT EVEN MOM AND DAD KNOW MY NAME! THEY DON'T EVEN REMEBER MY BIRTHDAYS! NOBODY GIVES EVEN A LITTLE CONSIDERATION! YOU KNOW WHY??? BECUASE OF YOU! ALL THEIR ATTENTION IS ON YOU THAT THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW I EXIST! AND YOU?? YOU ACT AS THOUGH I WAS NEVER BORN! YOU KNOW I TRIED TO COMMIT SUICIDE!!! AND DID YOU TRY TO STOP ME? NO! YOU WERE LUCKY A TEACHER FOUND ME!! YOU have never been my sister...."

I cried my feeling out that have been concealed in me all these years... I looked at my sister and saw that she dropped her phone and tears were streaming down her face. She ran to me and hugged me.

Paige then rolled up the sleeves of my blouse and she gasped at what she saw...

"M-mack... Y-you c-cut -yourself? W-why?!?!"

"Because why would I need to live anyway? Nobody cares about me.---"

"DON;T SAY THAT! You have a purpose Mack... I'm sorry for not being there when you needed me... I'm sorry for treating you badly, I'm sorry for stealing mom and dad's attention, I'm sorry for not being the sister you needed, I'm sorry for not paying attention to my little sister -- I'm sorry for not being your sister... But it's all gonna change now okay?? Just don't c-cut yourself again... If I lose you-- I lose everything!"

I responded to her hug and we stayed there until the doors were open.

THe next day our father and mother went to the school to pick us up. They quickly shoved me aside and hugged Paige. My sister glanced at me then parted from their hug.

"What about Mack mother, father?"

"Who?" dad and mom said in chorus.

"You know... your other daughter? The one with straight A+'s the one that places 1st in every competition, the one that mastered all college courses just to gain your attention? Mackenzie Georgia Henderson???"

Mom and dad glanced at me then covered their mouths. It was all true... I did all those things just so I could gain even just some of their attention. THey ran to me and hugged me..

That was the first time they ever hugged me... Paige joined in and we all had a family hug

"We're sorry Mack dear... We have been horrible parents!" 

"It's okay mom"
