Will's hand is the one that needs holding. :)

Sometimes when we get into bad situations and get used to it, it's scary to leave it. Hard to believe, but it happens more often than you think.

I can empathize with your sentiment there, Zimeta. From my early childhood years and up until about seventeen years of age, my siblings and I were succumbed to a long series of emotional and mental abuse from our own mother. The family tried to protect us, but there was only so much they could do without physical damage to our bodies and our mother had a fantastic way of manipulating her way back into the household. Our father tried to get her help, too. The abuse became a normal occurrence, a part of our growth, and it was our normal. It wasn’t until she tried to take my life not just once but twice that she was finally removed from the household and sent to prison.

For years afterward, we had the hardest time adjusting. It wasn’t normal for us anymore. The best way to describe it was that we were waiting for that shoe to fall. For mother to return to the home as she always did. For the yelling, the abuse, and the uncertainties to begin once more. In a way, we didn’t want that change. We didn’t want the house so empty. It was scary – scarier than her actually being there. We wanted our monster back for the security of knowing it was there, but we knew that wasn’t healthy. In time, we didn’t anticipate that shoe to fall.

We had our lives back.

…Eeehhh, sorry for rambling on about my life. This page just really speaks to me. Granted, I never served in any wars and I would never actually compare my petty inconveniences with a soldier’s nightmares. It’s just that we all have our monsters. Sometimes, though, we don’t want to – or can’t – let them go.

@BritMattison: Aww, that's so sad. ;_; I'm very happy you guys have your lives back! While I'm writing this story sometimes I'll just have a character say something and hope that people get it. But, once in a while there's a person who's lived it, so that makes me happy it speaks to you. ^.^

I think your monster is just as important as anyone's because it affects everyone you love.

It's past midnight.

WORTH IT.

Also, great style, hope you keep on drawing after this. :3

Probably the most profound page of this comic so far. Well done.

So beautiful This is the most beautiful drawn comic I have ever seen. I wish you could print the whole story out and sell it so I could read it every day and enjoy it. :)
