I’d rather think of him as a friend who has the same age with me, than a brother. We’re very similiar about our character, we’re hating to lose. It’s very difficult when we fight each other, we can’t easy to give up. Recently, unusually he came into my room, i think he has something that he wants to share with me. If you have a problem, just say it, bro!
