You looked outside to see the rain hit the windowpane roughly. It was dark, and the moon that usually lit the night sky was no where to be seen. Clouds billowed the atmosphere, creating a gloomy effect. You sighed, putting down the pin trapped between your fingers, shutting your daily log. Your daily log expressed feelings of sadness, depression, and loneliness. Daily life was a struggle, and looking across the white fence a short distance from you made you wanna just run right throw it. The grass was so green on the other side. It was practically unbearable.
Glancing outside once again you caught eye of bright color blurred by rain and the dimly lit streets. It was pink, a darker pink, almost red. Standing up to get a closer look, you realized it was a girl. A young one, at that, laying against a wall. Knowing that she could get seriously sick out in the freezing rain, you grabbed your coat and ran outside.
"Miss? Are you okay?" You asked politely, bending down beside the girl. Her blond hair was soaking wet, and her purple bow was dropping in front of her, dripping liquid.
"H-Hello?" She said rather quietly, barely audible. You could see she was shivering, and you had no idea how long she had been out in the rain, possibly wandering the streets.
"Hello, why are you here in rain?! Come with me." You said taking her hand and dragging her into your house. One you got inside and shut the door, you quickly grabbed a towel and threw onto her, drying the young girl off while she shivered uncontrollably.
"May I please know your name?" You asked politely once again, taking the towel off of the girl and exchanging it for a towel.
"L-Lili Zwingli.." She spoke gently. It was evident that she was a young quiet girl, the kind that couldn't find the courage to stand up for herself.
"Hi Lili, I'm _____. Can you tell me why you were out in the rain?!" Honestly, you were rather curious as to why a young, defenseless-looking girl was out in the gloomy weather alone.
"I don't know. I can't remember." It seemed as though it was a simple case of amnesia, hopefully it would fade soon.
"I see. Well, do you have any family?" You asked, now even more concerned.
"N-No.." What? No family, none at all?
"Are you sure? No cousins, uncles, grandparents?"
"No, I don't have anyone, ______." Even you had just met the girl, you felt so sorry for her, no family and nowhere to stay.
" I see. Well, you need to get out of those clothes! I'll find you something in my closet, okay, Lili?" You tried to be as comforting as possible. You left to get a pair of clean clothes for her, hoping they would fit decently. Thankfully they did, and Lili looked like she was coming out of her shivering fit.
"Thank you, you are so nice..." Lili replied quietly, showing her shy personality.
"It's no problem really, do you have somewhere to stay?"
"N-No.." She seemed sad, almost on the verge of depression, and she soon began to cry. "I-I don't have a family or a home.."
"Don't cry! Please, it'll be alright I promise!" You engulfed the fragile girl in a hug, holding her tightly. Soon Lili's sobs died down to just sniffles as her feet shifted from side to side.
"Thank you, I don't even know you that well you are so nice to me." She said with a hurt look on her face. "I'll leave so I don't trouble you."
"No! Don't do that it's still raining! I don't want you to get sick and wet." You took Lili's hand, leading to your spare room for your guests. "Sleep here for tonight, don't worry it's my pleasure."
"Alright, Thank you so much, _______."
In the morning you woke up early and walked by the guest room to still see Lili fast asleep, peacefully at that. You decided to make breakfast for her, along with yourself, and hopefully she'd be awake by then. You set the plate of eggs and pancakes on the table along with two other side plates, and some silverware.
"______?" You looked up at the sound of your name to see Lili, still dazed from slumber.
"Hey there, Lili! It's good to see you! I've made breakfast, please eat some!" You said sitting down at your place at the table, pointing to the empty seat across from you.
"Alright, it's looks good." Lili sat down and ate a good amount, and then politely set her silverware on her plate in a lady-like matter. "Your breakfast is wonderful!"
"Thank you, I'm glad you liked it! Now, I have a question for you." You stopped eating to looking her in the eye. "Where are planning on going after this?"
"I don't know, perhaps I'll just wander until I find a shelter to take me in, since I have no family." She responded, looking down sadly.
"You don't have to do that, live with me! I'll be your big sister." You said happily, hoping she would agree.
"If it's not too much trouble, I'd like that." Lili smiled lightly, fiddling with her fingers.
"It's not too much trouble at all. Welcome home little sister!" You excitedly jumped out of your seat to hug her.
"Thank you, Big Sister!" Lili hugged you tightly, smiling the widest smile you'd seen on her face since you met her.
~Months Later -~
Lili came home out of her room with a big [favorite color] box in her hands. It was wrapped neatly with a gift tag around it.
"Hey Lili! Who's the box for?" You asked playfully, as you stopped trimming the plant you had in the windowsill.
"Um, it's for you, Big Sister." Lili said nervously, shoving the box in your hands, walking away quickly. "It's for all the nice things you do for me!"
"A-Alright, Thank you!" You were a bit surprised by her actions, so you decided to go ahead and open the box.
Peering inside the open box, you saw a pair of pajamas, hand sewn. You heart swelled at the fact that she had done this for you, and it was your favorite pattern and favorite colors. Much love had been put into making these, from what you could tell.
"Thank you, Little Sister! You are so sweet!" You shouted and you hugged the box out of excitement. "We are so having a slumber party so we can show these off!"
All you heard you was the quiet chuckle of Lili from the other room, and a even quieter, "You're Welcome, Big Sister."
