Val always had a weird imagination, he thought of many things. Many came from what he enjoyed to do. Such as playing video games, reading books, or even sitting down in bed.
Other times he would sit outside when it's raining and watch the rain drops fall.
Many times he imagined himself a great superhero running fast and racing the wind, other times he would imagine himself as a popular person on YouTube, making millions of fans,
millions of friends, knowing millions of people who cared. As he would sigh he would realized it just wasn't true. Growing up, he grew up physically but mentally he remained a child.
Obviously knowing right from wrong yet never changing. Just as if he stopped changing at the age of ten. He had some mental illnesses from extreme anxiety to even extreme depression.
It was holding him down, locked in a cage known as his own mind. Trapped within it with no way of escaping. He knew someday his life might just be cut short by well.. his own hands.
