Hey dear,

First of all, I'm in love with the second-person brilliance. It is fantastic.

The mood you set upon entering the house was hauntingly suspenseful. I knew right away that something was definitely wrong. It was a frightening opening, especially knowing that somebody like Percy was reduced to shouting (a father's way of showing love and concern).

The story itself was heartrendingly distressful, but beautifully written.

Much to do on self-mutilation: Having surrounded myself with a fairly "unpopular" group in high school, I've had to deal with this in a couple friends. I understand how helpless that you can feel in the situation, unable to do or say anything right other than maybe "it's okay" and "I love you". One friend had a terrible home-life, and her self-expression came entirely through self-mutilation, and there was nothing that I could do to stop that.

In my senior year of high school...well, let's just say that was a fantastic and terrible year for me. While I was no longer the subject of extreme bullying (I have no idea what happened, something between growing into my body and being in the top of my class academically speaking and excelling at a certain sport seemed to take the bulls-eye off of my back), I was suffering from several different events (my father's death, broken friendships, pressure on colleges and what I would do with my life). Anyway, I fell to a different kind of self-mutilation (involving a friends prescription anti-depressants and incorrect dosages/ways of taking them). It was the only thing that made me feel okay, the only thing that I really could control at the time.

I remember when my mother (who was doing the shouting) and my auntie (who was doing the crying) found out, and I remember seeing my little brother watching me from the hallway. The emotions you created in this are very REAL, and extremely difficult to deal with.

You did a spectacular job on this, dear!
