Kon’ban wa Gorando minna-san!
This is Ms Aya who is here to blog about a random thought that came to mind.
I have no idea what led me to remember this but — Do you remember the first time you’ve ever been bullied in your life?
I think everyone at some point in life had been bullied be it physically or verbally — or at least felt like you were demeaned.
I was recalling and I believe the very first time I got bullied was back in my kindergarten days. I was about 5 ~ 6 years old then and there were these 2 boys who kept bothering me.
At that age, I didn’t know what bully meant or whether I was being bullied. All I knew was each time these 2 boys come close to me, either my hair gets yanked or I find myself kissing the ground.
I did run to my teacher for help and the teacher tried to tell the boys to stop however, my bullies were unfortunately — Japanese and could not understand English.
I remember that they were from a different class but somehow during break time, I always seemed to be their favorite target. The other girls will tell me that they are coming and I will then try to hide or run away from them.
Along these 2 Japanese boys, there was a Japanese girl who was nice and would try to help me at times. When the boys were after me, she would stop and talk to them. During shared lessons, she would show me pictures of Sailormoon and we will try to draw them together.
Despite encountering them regularly, I never actually knew their names. I simply identify them as Shizuka, Giant and Sinyu (Sinyu: the name used in BM translation) characters from the infamous comic, Doraemon.
It was really funny because they really look like the above characters.
The girl always had her hair tied in 2 pony tails either with red or pink balls. Whereas the boys, one of them was chubby and tanned while the other was scrawny and sly looking.
Hence, the impression. ↑
And because of their existence in my kindergarten, it led me to believe that Doraemon was real and could be living somewhere nearby with Nobita. (Laughs nervously)
Anyway, the most prominent memory I had was during a party in the nursery. All the kids were going to get some food (red beans, always red beans) while I strayed off and decided to play with the monkey bars.
As I was swinging from one bar to the other, I felt I wasn’t alone in the playground and before I could confirm that, I felt a strong push and lost my grip.
I fell on my butt and luckily, missed the puddle of mud.
Giant and Sinyu then ran passed laughing and smiling back at me with that victorious looking face. At that time, I have not learned to scold Fuck and Kan Ni Na so, I just sat there with an angry face.
I think that was the last time I’ve seen them as it was the graduation party?
Oh well.. This is the earliest memory I have about getting bullied.
If I can remember before that age, then I can tell you how is it like being a fetus. (Laughs)
When was the first time you were bullied?
At what age and was it very bad that it scarred you for life?
Or silly ones that tickles you? XD
