The official Eleven by Venus page recently posted an ‘Ask-Me-Anything’ tag on their story. They captioned it, “Drop a question below & have it answered by Venus herself!”

Immediately, fan questions came flowing in from all ends. While one fan asked her about her relationship status, another asked her what she would do if she could travel to the past.

Perhaps the most heartwarming question was when a fan talked to Venus about her own sister. “My older sister and I share the same age gap as you and Serena, but we can’t get along at all. Help?”

Venus helped out the fan with an answer as beautiful as her bond with Serena. She said, “Sit down and make some rules together on how you will treat each other and stick to it. ✨The sister contract✨.”

She then talked about the happiness and beauty of sisterhood. “Nothing is more rewarding in this world than being a good sister, speaking from experience.”

 

Clearly, the fan came to the right place for advice, since the superhero duo of the Williams sisters is no secret. Not only are the two sisters a lethal tennis pair, but they also share a loving bond.
