So why all of a sudden, now that I have them tied up, are those the only words they seem to know? I had spent my entire life without hearing these three words, yet now they are all they seem to utter. I had to know why these words had been withheld from me for so long, so I decided to take matters into my own hands.
I had them bound and gagged in my basement, and I was determined to get the answers I sought. I had been asking questions for hours, but all I got in response was “I love you”. I was growing increasingly frustrated and desperate for answers when I heard a noise coming from upstairs.
I quickly ran up to investigate and found a figure in the corner of the room. It was my mother, with a look of terror on her face. She told me that I was never told “I love you” because she had made a deal with a demon. In exchange for a successful life, she had promised to keep me from hearing those words.
I was horrified and angry, but my mother begged me to let them go. I reluctantly complied, and as soon as they were freed, the figure in the corner disappeared. I never saw it again, but I still hear those three words in my head every day. I love you.
