I've always tried to make it clear that Malaya's situation is complex. Her parents did the best they could with a child who could have eaten someone, and the end result is that Malaya boxed herself into a safe life where she couldn't hurt anyone. Sort of freedom in a cage. But this is the story of her expanding her boundaries and finding faith in herself that she's not an uncontrollable monster. (Is this whole story based on my own struggles to push the boundaries of my anxieties so I'm not controlled by them? Yes.)
Connie's not really concerned with whatever Malaya is saying, she's tripping balls on plants right now.
And next week, we get to the start of my favorite part of this chapter! I'm jazzed. This whole chapter is really living up to my expectations and I'm thrilled.
Feel free to check out my goofy Amazon store if you're so inclined, or I have some merch up on Society6 if you're looking for my old store link! Thanks to everyone who's come out to support me through Ko-fi and Patreon (links below, I'm too tired to link more things), you're really keeping me sane when the world is on fire :).
