Tending to my sister Emily is a taxing job. It’s been perhaps three years since she’s become too infirm to leave the house, and I’m afraid I’m often the only company she can enjoy anymore. She used to love spending days in the park so much. I am always heartbroken to deny her such things.

Her face, once lovely, is now thin and gaunt from sickness. The strain of speaking leaves her words with a faulting, whisper-like quality. When I take her pulse in the morning, her wrists feel as if they were frozen from cold. I must always keep her smothered in blankets, or else she will shiver until her teeth chatter.

Emily gets so lonely, that I’ve even arranged for friends of mine to come by and be her “dates.” They can’t leave the house together, naturally, but I believe she really enjoys talking to someone new now and again. I can be terrible with conversation sometimes, and I know how much she loves to debate, and to laugh.

I love my sister dearly, which is why I take such excellent care of her. She’d never doubt for a moment my conviction to her happiness, and I know in my heart that she appreciates my sacrifice. Someday, when she’s feeling grateful – so grateful that nothing in the whole world could upset her – I’ll admit that I’ve been poisoning her the whole time.

    To answer Sharik’s question. The sister get’s the satisfaction of taking care of Emily. Yes it sounds strange but there are people out there that live off being needed by those weaker or beneath them. It makes them feel stronge in a way. It’s a sick fantasy, and in the sister’s mind she is doing all this for Emily’s good, to keep her isolated and safe from outside interference. Though this is all just my oppinion.

      Sounds a lot like munchousoun syndrome. I think I spelled it wrong but there are.people who kill their kids or spouse to get attention, maybe this is the same thing…

    Munchausen syndrome by proxy. (I’ve seen enough Law and Order: SVU to diagnose it, lol). This story is simple, brief, and, in a word, graceful. It is a perfect depiction of what women with the syndrome think while they poison their loved ones. Kudos.

    I’m actually very pleased with the ending. The way he talks about his sister is as if he would do anything in the world for her. The thing is there really is no hint to why he’s killing her. Other than that it’s great.

    Uh…am I the only person who realizes this was from Sixth Sense? The story was written well enough though.

    WoW! You guys must be really young. Watch some old movies. This is “Sweet Baby Jane” revised. It’s a great old black and white horror flick. Check it out sometime… it’s damn good! :)

    I don’t see the similarity to “Sixth Sense” at all…?

      In ‘The Sixth Sense’, one of the ghosts begs him to help her reveal to her father, that her mother was the reason she’s dead. The mother (step mother? I can’t remember) was adding windshield wiper fluid (again not sure, but definetely some kind of poison) into her meals, in order to kill her.

      Not really the same, but similar I guess.
