I was awakened by my father in an energetic way and we had yet another discussion for the usual reasons. I haven’t seen it since, I took a lanyard that I had on hand and with that I strangled him. At that point I fell asleep on the ground, next to his body. To wake up the phone, it was my mother who told me that she was returning to the house. I felt the key in the lock, I saw it and with the lanyard still in my hand I strangled her too, without even having time to notice. It all happened in a few minutes. “
