Like my Mum would say, even if you fall you must rise again,Don't let them see your weakness.

If I were to count my weaknesses, Ance will always be my first.I couldn't face the crowd without people telling me 

"heh what's that on your forehead" "Heh what's that on your cheeks"

Okay wait not that magic castle we see in movies but my lonely room, that one place my siblings won't just stop staying away from.
