[11:23:27 AM] PixelTurtle: ugh god
[11:23:35 AM] *** PixelTurtle flops over ***
[11:23:49 AM] IcyBunny: Something the matter?
[11:24:40 AM] PixelTurtle: yeah
[11:23:49 AM] PixelTurtle: I've got this dumb project I need to work on, for school
[11:23:54 AM] PixelTurtle: I hate it
[11:24:13 AM] IcyBunny: What's it over?
[11:24:49 AM] PixelTurtle: it's a project for health class
[11:24:58 AM] PixelTurtle: I've got to write a multi-page report on why "drugs are bad m'kay?"
[11:25:06 AM] PixelTurtle: and to make it worse it's a group project
[11:25:17 AM] PixelTurtle: like... I love my friends
[11:25:29 AM] PixelTurtle: but their work ethic is garbage
[11:25:49 AM] IcyBunny: Yeesh. So I guess that means you'll be doing all the work yourself?
[11:25:55 AM] PixelTurtle: probably
[11:26:00 AM] PixelTurtle: but it's w/e because I'll probably just forget about it in a week
[11:26:11 AM] PixelTurtle: no use getting overly worried about things
[11:26:16 AM] PixelTurtle: life's too short for that
[11:26:07 AM] IcyBunny: Amen to that, sister.
[11:27:01 AM] PixelTurtle: soooooo... how's your day been?
[11:27:06 AM] IcyBunny: ...
[11:27:12 AM] IcyBunny: Can I confide something in you?
[11:27:53 AM] PixelTurtle: yeah of course
[11:27:58 AM] PixelTurtle: is something wrong? :(
[11:28:29 AM] IcyBunny: So... basically...
[11:29:13 AM] IcyBunny: My mom has a tendency to be very emotionally abusive. I haven't mentioned this before because I really didn't want to burden you with it but... Today she spent an entire hour screaming at me about how I was a waste of space and then when I tried to argue with her she blamed me for my dad's death.
[11:29:26 AM] PixelTurtle: ...oh my god
[11:29:31 AM] PixelTurtle: what the fuck?!
[11:29:40 AM] PixelTurtle: who even... does that to their kid and... your dad died? :(
[11:31:02 AM] IcyBunny: Yeah, it was a few years ago. He had spent a large portion of his life depressed and then he got fired from his job for not being productive enough. And... I think that put him over the edge. He killed himself in the living room. I ended up being the first person to see the scene.
[11:31:46 AM] IcyBunny: The image is still burned into my brain. All the blood. It's so hard to talk about even now. It still hurts like it did the day he died. All the trauma and sadness comes back every single time I think about it.
[11:31:59 AM] IcyBunny: My mom blaming me for his death made all of that so much worse, I just broke down right in front of her. She used that as another reason that I was a waste of space.
[11:32:08 AM] PixelTurtle: holy fuck
[11:32:29 AM] PixelTurtle: I'm not going to sugar coat this, your mom is a horrible person
[11:32:40 AM] PixelTurtle: nobody should ever treat their child like that
[11:32:52 AM] PixelTurtle: like... is it feasible for you to get out of that house with her? move to somewhere else?
[11:33:54 AM] IcyBunny: Not really. Not that I can see, at least. Plus, she has her good qualities, it's okay here most of the time. Also. I wouldn't want to leave my younger sister alone with her. I think at the moment I'm the lightning rod for her anger and frustration. I wouldn't want to wish what she says to me on anyone else, especially someone as vulnerable as my sister.
[11:34:00 AM] PixelTurtle: :(
[11:34:09 AM] PixelTurtle: if I could hug you right now, I would
[11:34:12 AM] *** PixelTurtle hugs ***
[11:34:34 AM] *** IcyBunny hugs ***
[11:34:46 AM] IcyBunny: Dinner is ready, I really need to get down there now, before she yells at me again. Go work on your project, I'm sure it won't be too hard for you to finish.
[11:34:55 AM] PixelTurtle: alright
[11:35:02 AM] PixelTurtle: and, don't worry, I will :P
[11:35:10 AM] PixelTurtle: ...stay safe, okay?
[11:35:26 AM] IcyBunny: I will, Pixel, see you later!
[11:35:31 AM] PixelTurtle: later!
[11:35:39 AM] PixelTurtle: oh, and you can call me Penelope if you want :3
[11:35:44 AM] IcyBunny: Oh! Okay! Can do. :)
