Analogue: A Hate Story

by ProfessorProf

Part 18: Why did you kill all those people?

These are... ugh... really hard for me to read. I haven't... I haven't seen mine since I wrote them, and I haven't seen my family's... well... ever...
...well, I think I've found... here. I've added some.
Just... please, read them...
If you want to know the whole story... those entries will explain.

Four logs in Block 7.

The Nightmarish Bride - Feb 7th, Year 320, Heo Ming-jung

"Mother", huh.
I... I don't really know what to say about her. Even now.
This is the first time I've read what she wrote, and it's just... well, there's more. Here, read them for yourself.

Two more logs.

Mother - Feb 21st, Year 320, The Pale Bride

Independent Woman - Apr 3rd, Year 320, Heo Ming-jung


Yeah... I didn't think so.
I don't know what to say!
She was cruel! So... so... so... so cruel.
Now that I've read her perspective, it doesn't... it doesn't change anything...!
Fine, she actually believed what she was saying. That doesn't make all of it right!
I hate her. I don't care if she's long dead, I don't care if I was the one who did it... I still hate her!
I hate her, I hate her, I hate her, I hate her, I hate her, I hate her, I HATE HER!
...oh, geeze, I'm sorry... I didn't mean to work myself up like that...

Good. Me neither.
That's what I had to live with... reading what she wrote, she honestly believed that!
It just reminds me of how I ended up thinking. How I completely gave up, and believed her attitude...
She tried to wear me down. She succeeded. She doesn't deserve pity, and I didn't deserve what she did to me!
I just... I could never forgive her, ever!
I... I... I'm really glad you understand...
Sorry. I've calmed down now. It's just... hard to think about, even now.
I really do hate her.

I understand how you feel, but I really do need more logs.

There was... There was one big fight I had with her. The one that changed everything, the one I finally lost.
My diary makes it sound really dramatic. I know, I was young at the time, but... it really was.
Just read it. It's exactly how it went.

One more log. We'll get to it in a moment.

The new anxiety - Apr 22nd, Yeah 320, Yeong-seok's wife

You know... I never did like her.
When I woke up, she was just this awful person who kept saying the most awful things... never as bad as mother, but still.
I didn't read any of her letters when I was alive, of course. But... you know what really surprised me?
She made such an awful impression on my life, I hated her the most for so long... and she barely even ever mentioned me!
All my suffering... it was just a minor distraction to her. Nothing more. Insignificant compared to her man!
I... sigh...
There's one more from her, that you should read. I don't know how to feel about it. I don't know how to feel about her.
There's just one thing that I keep thinking, though. Just one thing.
I have no idea what her name was.

One more log.

My last stand - May 13th, Year 320, The Pale Bride

I'll... I'll get to that. But for now...
Please, just look at everything else first...

Drastic Measures - May 13th, Year 320 Heo Ming-jung

Peace at Last - Feb 14th, Year 321, Heo Ming-jung

"Of her own free will."
I... I can't believe she actually said that.
It's wrong. It's completely wrong. I can't believe she could have possibly thought that, I...
...just unbelievable.

The new promise - Mar 7th, Year 321, Yeong-seok's wife

You've... You've read almost everything now. I know you've had faith in me, and I promise... I promise it hasn't been misplaced.
There's just one more thing.
I don't think you'll be surprised. You seem smart. I'm sure... I'm sure you've already guessed what it is.
Go ahead.
Ask it.
Ask me the obvious question!


Question 9

Why did I kill them.
Here... you want to know what could make me look at my father's face, and be filled with so much hatred? You want to know how I could possibly think my whole family deserved to die?
If you haven't already guessed... here. Here's my last diary entry.
Just... I can't... I can't say it myself. I can't bring myself to... even now...
Please, just read it!

One more log.

Forever silenced - May 13th, Year 320, The Pale Bride

That's why I gave up. That's why I wanted to kill them so much.
...sorry. It's really hard to talk about. It's just... I...
...I'll try. I'm sorry.
I told you it'd make sense, right?
