Carla and Cecilia
Carla and Cecilia were always very close since they were toddlers. Then, two years ago, Carla lost her little sister, Cecilia, to a sudden illness. Cecilia was only thirteen months younger than Carla.
Carrie and Mars
Carrie’s childhood was less than idyllic; her mother was manipulative and emotionally abusive, and by 16, Carrie began dating someone whose attitude and behaviors mirrored those of her mother.
Late one night in June of 2017, Eveline was awakened by terrible pain. What began as a dull ache earlier in the evening had become sharp, excruciating pains that seemed to shoot across her lower back.
