being told i was smart and above average from a young age was probably one of the worst things to happen to me because now i have a complex and question my entire existence when i dont excel at something right away
Yamori ordered me to count out loud backward by sevens from one thousand.
This instruction, which I didn't understand at first, is something I now realize was to keep me as sane as possible.
I was clinging to these numbers.
Meanwhile, Yamori took my hands and feet... again and again, and AGAIN.
And now...IT'S MY TURN.
