‘If my sister’s kidney fails I won’t donate one of mine’

I protected her against all comers in the neighbourhood and at school; in return, she covered for me and took the blame when I transgressed at home.

We shared a room until I was 16, and were so close we joked about living together with our husbands when we grew up.

I pinched her make-up; she broke my favourite doll.

We fought and bickered like any sisters, but the moment anyone threatened either of us, we closed ranks and backed each other to the hilt.
