"it’s my worst nightmare to come home from work and not know where you are. that’s why i waited for you. a mother fears the worst whenever her child is not home. it’s a motherly instinct for her to do that. i love you so much, anak. i wanna know where you are so i have some comfort in knowing that you’re somewhere safe."
i now know why my mom wants me home by 11 every night. even if i am 17 years old.
