Our conversation ended there, but her obsessions for cyborgs continued on. ³What would you do if you became a cyborg, JunGyu?´ I was a bit annoyed with her by then. ³I don¶t know.

When you would RATHER have walls smothering around you. I sensed trouble. I saw her.. When you know there is no one to sympathize with the pathetic you.. It was titled: ³The Process. It¶s the moment. betraying your pride and eventually pitying yourself? Crying when you know you¶re the wrong one« crying when you know you don¶t even deserve to shed tears. Her wrist was bleeding. on the floor of the living room.was for the last two days?´ But it wasn¶t her. doubting your sanity? Have you laughed so hard. wanting their plastic eyes and mannequin smiles? Have you ever felt« like a cyborg before? I should have known. 3. But what made me finally realize and literally break down crying was a piece of paper her mom handed me. To: JunGyu´ 1.Have you ever wished« everything would be so much better if you did not have this thing called µheart¶ and could not feel anymore? Have you ever been envious of lifeless dolls. 2.. with a bloody knife next to her. And when I barged in.
