Sometimes after two weeks of no bathing or bushing my hair I’d feel strong enough to have my mom try to free my knotted hair. She’d sit me down and spend an hour or two brushing my hair so we wouldn’t have to cut it off.

Every day, my secret desire to learn combat kept growing, but in fear of society, I had never been able to overcome my fear of becoming a social outcast. Nevertheless, as I held my sword high, dripping with blood, I felt proud to have broken free of the chain that my people had bonded me in since birth.
