The Game Of Sisters Cooking And Brothers Protecting!

There comes the question, why does my cousin brother get pampered when I’m taught how to take care of a house as a kid?

When I was 8 years old, I was taught how to make a roti. By the age of 12, I could cook a whole meal. When my cousin turned 16, he was sent to a hostel for coaching in a different state.

My aunt visited him every few weeks, which was peculiar to me. Once the year was over, he almost failed because he wasn’t comfortable in his hostel as the food didn’t match his taste. His mother went to live with him for the next 6 months. She then came back when she thought he has settled again.

His finals came around and he almost failed again. He didn’t get admission to his college of choice. He came back to his house and is staying there now.

Recently turned 19, he has just learned how to make Maggi and tea. I’m a few years younger and every time I’m there, he expects me to cook for him.
Whenever we go out, he thinks he needs to protect me because I’m weaker, when the truth is I protect him more than he protects me.
