Most people would say the graphic rape scenes or the suicide, right? Not me.
For me, it was two snippets from the tapes:
“You’re different. You’re good, kind, and decent… And I would have ruined you.” That was me, in my late teens and early 20’s. The best thing my crushes did for themselves was friendzone me. (Still friends to this day, in a surprising number of cases.)
“It’s the end of tape 13. There’s nothing more to say.” Empty hallway. If she walks through that door, which we know she will, then it’s over. That’s her suicide, really. We still see the flower on her backpack, from a time when decorations mattered.
