You know, this is a really deep look into emotional and physical abuse, and the psychological effect it has on the people who go through it. Over time, being raised and subjected to such abuse, wears away at you. It affects you in a way that someone who hasn't been subjected to it for years, isn't affected by the same abuser. That's why Brody was not afraid the way Zack has been conditioned to be.

And, in a way it takes more courage and bravery for Zack to accept help from Brody than it does to face another day of his dad's abuse. You become sort of accustomed in a way, to the abuse. Know what to expect, but when you throw an unknown into the mix, it's impossible to predict what will happen. Plus, you don't want to cling to some hope, and then lose it, cause that'll hurt even more than the abuse you're already become familiar with.

It looks like Zack is finally taking a brave step and reaching out for help. I can't wait to find out what happens next. Thanks Com ((Hugs))
