I think most of the readers of this story are in Brody's position - they haven't experienced that kind of sustained abuse (at least I hope they haven't), and they genuinely wonder "Why don't you tell someone? Why don't you leave? Why do you put up with it?".

This chapter finally addresses that question - and there isn't some specific, tangible reason. Zack has just been so mentally beaten down by the situation that he feels like "this is the way things are" and nothing he can do will change that. That if his father beats him, it's because he did something to deserve it, and if he can just avoid doing any of those things, it won't happen.

You can see the start of the mindset starting to change in this chapter, and I look forward to seeing how that develops over the next chapters.
