Ricky : I suppose it is true. I can never stand being in small spaces and rooms. That day, I tried once to fight my phobia by forcing my self out to stay in a small space at my house. It went horribly and turned out to be a bad idea. I tried to endure my fear but I ended up unable to breathe and getting dizzy. I felt the room was getting small and trying to squeeze me. I hit my limit and I immediately got out of that space.
Yuri : Whoa, that’s horrible, Ricky. Please don’t do that again.
Ricky : Of course, I won’t [laughing]. So, anyone has another phobia?
Faisal : I think I have Mathophobia.
Nadia : Huh? What kind of phobia is that?
