It Will Rot Your Soul 68 People

    My Brother Peter

    My brother Peter was born two years and seven days after me.  I was the eldest child.  There was something wrong with Peter from the time he was born.  Obviously I don't remember the details.  What I was told was that even just after he was born, he was a...
