Took a deep breath
it kinda hurt, but that's alright
tried to speak.
couldn't.
so i swallowed instead.
now that burned.
i felt it go all the way down my raw throat.
you nodded though.
that means you're happy.
that's good.
i want you to be happy.
last time you were unhappy, i got sick.
that rope made me sick.
it put sickness all around my neck.
but that's okay.
you said you wouldn't use that rope on me anymore.
but you can do what you want.
as long as you're happy.
that's all that matters.
