Entry 16

After the party, I did a lot of thinking, and finally I decided that if I want to open up more, I have to take it in steps. I needed to open up to someone before I had another 'incident'. But it had to be small steps, so it had to be someone I really trust.

So when I had the opportunity to get Sis alone during the last long hyperspace trip, I decided to open up. I told her that I needed to talk to her about what happened at the party and why.

I dont think she was expecting what came next, I know I didnt.

I started with where I was born and went from there. I told her my entire life's story as best as I could remember it. No detail too intimate. I couldnt help myself, once I started, the damn was broken and the deluge rushed out. By the end, I was crying again, only the 4th time in my life I can remember doing so without getting backhanded, but this time they were tears of relief.

We talked for hours after that, her telling me of her past, me answering any questions she had about mine. It was very nice, and very comforting. I dont ever remember being that relaxed before.

Of course it was over much too soon, and we had to get geared up for the mission.

Sis is definately closer than any of my blood family has been since my mother died, for that matter, so are quite a number of the people that I work with on a regular basis, but she and I are almost like twins sometimes :)
