I was taught in psychology 101 that children learn not to touch the stove by touching it once and realizing it’s hot. Same with grabbing a cactus or looking into the sun. Once they find out that it hurts, they stop doing it. So it should come as no surprise that when I trust you and end up getting hurt, eventually I stop. But what I don’t get is why I had to let you hurt me 5 times before learning to stay away.
IMAGINE: seán and signe tried to tiptoe out the house, they were scared, they were trapped. they didn't know whether they'd make it out or not. seán opened the door before creeping into the hallway, signe following shortly after. a sharp, high pitched laugh echoed behind them. they froze up. "RUN!" signe yelled at seán. he hesitated. signe reached beside her, grabbing a cactus, lobbing it at the glitch bitch, he hissed. they both ran as fast as they could, the sounds of anti shortly behind them
