On April 1, both sisters posted photos on Twitter and Instagram showing them together and looking happy. Ara’s photo with her younger sister was captioned, “Just like the rainbow after the rain. A good thing will always happen after you experience the pain…. #sisters #blood #forgiveness #happiness #reunited.”
‘Gift of healing’. A very happy-looking Cristine also posted a photo of her arm around her sister, with the caption, “With the gift of listening comes the gift of healing…. #appointedtime #blood #forgiveness #sisters #happiness.” The estranged siblings got together during a family gathering, a year since their rift. It can be recalled that Ara filed a libel and grave coercion suit against her younger sister last April 2012 “to teach her a lesson.” Cristine posted their family picture and captioned it with, “Happiness. Love. Family.” Ara posted the same photo with the caption, “Happy together again.”
A prank? Ironically, the photos went online during April Fool’s Day, which led some to think their reconciliation was just a prank. However, the photos also belied the suspicion, with Ara thanking her Twitter followers who sent well wishes her way. Photos by both sisters have been liked by followers up to 4,000 times.
