The harsh reality lies here, Alyson believes in her heart of hearts that when she turns twelve that Destyni too, will still be twelve. Alyson thinks they will be twins, she just has to patiently wait eight more years and she can love and do all of the amazing things that Destyni fills her time with. The first few times that Alyson spoke about this we tried to correct her, but we stopped. There is something so sweet and innocent about Alyson wanting to be everything that Destyni is that makes us want to keep that fragile bubble from bursting.
Alyson believes her and Destyni will play together in that magical land of twelve - the truth is that when Alyson is twelve, Destyni will be twenty (okay breathe). Imagine the world that Destyni will be a part of then, the world that she can let Alyson peek into to. If twelve is magical for Alyson, I believe that twenty will be breathtaking.
Bless you, my darling, and remember you are always in the heart — oh tucked so close there is no chance of escape — of your sister. ~Katherine Mansfield
