He left us right after my younger sister was born, and my younger sister was born when I wasn't even a year old yet. Which means that I grew up without a father, without knowing a father, without knowing my father. And I didn't have any father figure at all because we only have women in the house. I grew up without a man around me.

So while I was writing a story today, there was this scene with the MC with his mother, and the mother was talking about how she met the MC's father. And I was like, "Oh yeah! The father!" In most cases, I forget to create a father for my MC, and I only just realized that today.

I wondered for a bit why I always forget to create a father and it clicked. "Oh damn, I don't know what a father is like!"
