It goes without saying that dating your sister’s ex is a big no. The risks involved are not worth it and I learnt this the hard way. My sister and I were pretty close. She was my best friend growing up but we grew apart when she went to university. Suddenly, she started to act like she was better than the rest of us.
She was a completely different person and I didn’t like it. She called me a “baby” and any time I asked her about university life, she brushed me off.
“You won’t understand. You’re still a baby.” She answered.
I actually found out she had a boyfriend through my mum. One day when my other siblings and I were all watching TV, my mum stormed in and pulled me aside.
“What do you know about Lisa’s boyfriend?” She asked angrily.
“I don’t know anything, mum, but Lisa is a grown-up now. She definitely will have a boyfriend.”
“I heard he’s an old man.”
“Don’t believe everything you hear.”
“These university girls… what can’t they do? You better be on your best behaviour when you go next year.”
“Of course, I will.”
After I found out that my sister had a boyfriend, I wanted to know more about him. This was the first guy that she hadn’t told me about and I was dying of curiosity.
When she came back for her weekly visits, I managed to take her phone and saw flirty messages between my sister and her boyfriend. However, before I could put the phone back, she caught me red-handed.
“What are you doing with my phone?” She asked, yanking it from my hand.
“Nothing. I was just…”
“If I ever catch you looking through my phone again, you will regret the day you were born.”
After that stern warning, I never touched her things and our relationship ship soured.
She continued to live her life as if the world revolves around her but soon enough, I joined her at university and her world came crumbling down.
She tried to act as if we weren’t related but our resemblance was uncanny and soon enough, her friends started to notice me. Her boyfriend was particularly fond of me and he hit on me many times. However, I was hesitant since he was still dating my sister although I badly wanted my revenge. I turned home down repeatedly but he still pursued me.
Over time, I got to know him and he was great to be around. He always made me laugh and we got along very well. Still, he was my sister’s boyfriend and I didn’t want to overstep the boundaries. She wasn’t aware that her boyfriend and I knew each other let alone spent every day together. There are times I texted her on his phone to tell her that he was busy.
“She can be very annoying.” He said as he checked her texts.
I laughed knowing too well that she was annoying and full of herself.
“To tell you the truth, you’re the more beautiful sister.” He flirted.
“I told you not to say things like that,” I answered.
“I’m sorry. I can’t help myself.”
A few weeks later, my sister came to my hostel room crying her eyes out.
“He broke up with me.”
I may have known that he wasn’t attracted to my sister anymore but I didn’t think he would break up with her. My sister has a way of making people stay with her, including me. That was the perfect time to tell her about me and her boyfriend but I ended up comforting her and taking care of her.
The next day, however, I met up with her boyfriend and he couldn’t wait to tell me the good news.
“We broke up.” He said in excitement.
“She was in my room crying her eyes out yesterday.”
“Really? I thought you weren’t close.”
“I thought so too.”
“Anyway, you can’t reject me now. I’m a single man.”
“I hope you didn’t break up because of me.”
“Sort of. Also, your sister is a lot. I couldn’t handle her anymore.”
“Tell me about it.”
I decided to give the relationship a shot. I may have started talking to him to anger my sister but I started developing real feelings and I was always excited to spend time with him.
However, it didn’t take long for my sister to find out that I was dating her ex and all hell broke loose. If she didn’t hate me before, she hated me at that time.
“How could you do this to me? I was crying over my breakup in your room.” She said.
“Do you ever think that everything is not about you? We’re in love.”
She laughed and then sneered at me.
“You can have him and all my leftovers.”
“You said he was the love of your life when you were crying to me.”
She ran towards me trying to attack me but I quickly dodged her. My friends then held her back and she gave up. However, things between them remained tense for months. We never went home at the same time and any attempt to reconcile us was futile.
It was only until her ex and I broke up that she started to talk to me again. I found out that he was cheating on me with one of my friends which he had done to my sister.
We bonded over our mutual trauma and managed to rebuild our relationship. Now, we’re closer and better than ever and we realized that nothing was more important than our sisterhood. My sister ended up being my closest friend throughout university and taught me all I needed to know about survival on campus. The breakup also made us focus on what we went to university to do and we ended up graduating with honours while some of our friends didn’t even graduate.
