Jordan says that if you are incapable of cruelty, then you are at the mercy of those who are…
For reasons that are unclear to me now, I remember a time when I couldn’t even comprehend hurting someone physically; however, I was very young.
I was 15 the first time I recognized that people were genuinely intimidated by me. It happened in the middle of a Donnybrook at a country dance. I was terrified and yelled some gutteral scream while ripping off my jacket while bracing for a fight: and everyone stopped mid-conflict and were staring at me; dozens of frightened eyes.
At that moment, I guess I became capable of cruelty. I remember their faces and my delight.
