i just made my brother cry.
in fact he’s crying because he’s really angry.
i can FEEL the anger. raging from within.
frustration.
hatred.
disgust.
confusion.

all i did, was tell him this (it’s really simple)
“From today onwards, you can’t listen to rock/pop or worldly music anymore.”

“HUH?! WHY? WAHLA* MUST LISTEN TO CLASSICAL MUSIC? EEEE WAHLA*. I WANT TO LISTEN TO ROCK. I WANT.”

“No you can’t. No more. You’ve been really vulgar lately anyway.”

“I promise i won’t scold vulgarities anymore la! I promise i promise!”

“All that, so you can listen to worldly music? The devil’s music?”

(silence. shuffles feet and jerks about. jerking movements become more agitated. more furious.)

“(cries and wails)”

“Why are you crying? Just because you can’t listen to rock anymore?!”

“(too much mumbling so i can’t really figure out what he’s saying.)”

(silence)
(a lot of wailing.)

i haven’t heard my brother cry like that. never. it’s really terrible. i felt bad about making him cry. but somehow, the fact that he’s crying over not being able to listen to rock really drives me mad. i acted like i couldn’t care and used the computer nonchalantly.

jun mentioned something that made a lot of sense.
