I encouraged my sibling to continue exploring the world. I impressed upon my other sibling that, while friends are commendable, family is what really counts. I offered them both assistance should they get into a spot of bother.
I contemplated the possibility that they no longer trusted one another; or relied on their mutual affection.
Two hypothetical inquiries were made to test the boundaries of my offer to help. The first contemplated the possibility that one of the siblings had traveled to a remote location. I assured them that the telephone would still work. The second considered the other sibling becoming bankrupt. Again, I was able to comfort them with my offer of continued support.
The conversation continued in this manner for a while.
Who and where am I?
