Be a man!
"Stand up to the bullies" Dad used to say. "Hit them back. They're cowards. They'll stop hitting you when you stand up for yourself." His words replay in my mind as my eye socket throbs and I struggle to contain my sobs. The metallic taste of blood in my mouth makes me want to gag. I should take my Dad's advice. It worked all those years ago at school. Hit back, hit hard, end it. Be a man! But I can't.
"Keep going! I'm almost there!" she yells. So I carry on licking and nibbling, holding back the sobs.
Dad also said never to hit girls.
Why does she always do this to me when she's on?
