Dovey: *trips over her chains while walking*

Me: *laughs*

Dovey: Don’t laugh at me!

Me: I can’t help it. You’re so cute! I like it when you suffer.

Me: Isn’t there a German word for enjoying the suffering of others? Schadenfreude…

Dovey: It’s not the same. That’s a very negative thing. Taking pleasure in the suffering of others.

Me: *smirks*

Dovey: You know what I mean!
