My Example:

Aphelia watched her sister through half closed lids. She knew her sister had been rising early to help her with her chores since she twisted her ankle three days ago. After, she would leave for most of the morning to train and hunt, providing for not only the two of them, but all of the folks that lived in their small village who were to old to hunt for themselves.
Laying there, Aphelia thought of her sister. She envied her strength and determination often opting to complain and whine about her troubles while Talianna forged ahead with her duties without a word.
The early morning light filtering through the only window caught the doe colored highlights in her sister’s long hair. She turned to take one last glance at her sleeping sister before leaving. Aphelia could barely make out the earthy tone of her sister’s eyes. She had never noticed the lines on her face before. Lines put there by all the pressure on her shoulders. The usual smile hiding the uncertainty of tomorrow, of what will become of them without their parents.
Just as Talianna was about to leave, Aphelia jumped out of bed, limping to her sister’s side and hugged her tight. “I am so sorry.”
“Aphelia, what on earth?” She grasped her sister in a hug not even realizing she was shifting to relieve the pressure on her sister’s hurt ankle.
“You do so much and all I ever do is complain. I’m sorry.”
“Aphelia,” crouching down to look her sister in the eyes, “everyone is allowed to complain once in a while. Even me, I just complain to the trees. They listen better.” She winked at her sister as she scooped her up and headed back to her little bed. “Get some more rest and we will do something fun when I get home. Ok? Maybe we can go visit Magnus.”
“Really, you think he will be up for see us?”
“He’s a bear and a very good friend. I think he would love to see you!”
Her sister was often to tired to do much after returning home, her even mentioning that she would do something else after all her work created resolve in Aphelia’s bones to be more like her sister starting right now!
