Maliciousness. This strange desire to see people suffer scares me. What hurts me more is when this kind of maliciousness wriggles it's way into my family and so they begin to somehow hurt each other just to watch the other person suffer. A few summers back, we went to a resort and as usual most of the time I was in my room on my laptop but my sister and cousins were spending time with each other. A few days later I hear this horrendous story about my cousin crying to her father that she had been kicked out of my aunt's cabin and that my mother hadn't offered her any dinner and how much of a bad hostess she was even though we were given money to buy food. My uncle, her father, called his brother and started yelling at him, speaking ill of his wife. He also spoke to my father but my father was the type of man that never interfered in matter of women or children. He left us to handle our business as we saw fit. Fast forward a few months later, we met up again and I said something to her, almost intentionally wanting to instigate as I've had much to say myself. A huge fight nearly broke out but it was stilled. My sister thought that giving her a chance to speak her mind would do her some good but no one realized how much it was a bad idea until it was too late. They stood at the beach, at first speaking but from what I was told, my cousin had been rude and was telling my sister what my mother 'should have' done and what she was 'supposed to do.
Of course that lit my sister on fire and before we knew it a fight broke out and ever since then there had been this hate brewing from my cousin towards my sister. Even when they tried to patch things up, it didn't work. It was one of those things that you can't fix.
I never could understand that sort of behavior. Why would anyone go out of their way to make another person suffer?
