The Hermit's story PART 1
Sounds familiar. Keep it coming. And welcome to the forum. You are not alone!
I'm a year older than you 1983 baby. Oh yes I also wasn't allowed to watch those programs. Especially He-Man, She-Ra, Ewoks, Thunder Cats, Transformers, Ninja Turtles etc.
So stupid, but my parents really thought they were doing what's best. It sucked though. I hated being the different one at school. Enjoying your story so far! Off to read the next bits.
