She'd always been better than everyone else. The type of daughter that made her parents proud, the type that became the talk of the whole school community.
The trophies that glittered on her shelves and the piles of certificates were proof of her 'gift'. The sparkling 'A's on all of her report cards were the cause of envy from her peers. At family gatherings, she was the most famous child, her name on the tip of everyone's tongue. She was the favourite among elders, the object of comparison for everyone.
Be like Yuna. Her aunts would say to their sons. She always get top in class.
Be like Yuna. Her uncles would say to their daughters. She takes part in so many competitions, and wins them all.
Be like Yuna. Her teachers would tell her classmates. She volunteers for everything.
Yuna, Yuna, Yuna. Perfect Yuna. Smart Yuna. Know-it-All Yuna. Her cousins would scowl.
Yuna, Yuna, Yuna. Teacher's Pet Yuna. Try-Hard Yuna. Her classmates would whisper behind her back.
Yuna, Yuna, Yuna-
Until she wasn't Yuna anymore.
