Brothers come from War Mini Story

by Ellie Bartee | Score: 4350

I was young when my brothers went to war. I don't remember much about them other than the fact that they loved me. Now that they are standing right in front of me I can't seem to feel that love, they are like strangers. I guess it'd be hard to love those who you haven't seen in 10 years. I was five then, I am 15 now. They stand, staring at me. I doubt they recognize me, or they don't know which of their five sisters I am. "Sarah?" One of them guess. 
"No..." I wasn't going to help them. 
"Care?" They'll never guess. 
I shook my head.
"Emily?" I sighed. They seriously don't remember me.
"Willow?" My mouth twitched as they got my name right.
"Took you four tries." I scoffed. 
They all laugh in unison. I step away from the door, allowing them to come inside. 
They look around at the house they hadn't been in since they were teenagers. I give them their space.
After 30 minutes of allowing them to look I have to admit that can't match their names to
