Daphnis point of view;

*6 days before the wedding*

‘Daphni, I need to talk to you’ Harry sounded serious pounding on the front door. 

‘Yeah hang on a minute Harry’ I snapped furiously applying the foundation to the scar on my face.

‘come on Daphni, just let me in’ he moaned still pounding on the door.

‘I SAID IN A MINUTE’ I screamed.

I didn’t want Harry to see the scar that stroke across my face. I couldn’t even bear to look at it myself; it just brought back what had happened.

*how I got the scar* 
‘Honey, im home’ Derek chuckled as he walked inside the front door slamming down his briefcase and walking slowly towards me. I could tell he had been drinking again; by the way he tilted his head and stumbled a little across the floor.

‘Hello darling, how was drinks with the boys?’ I asked sarcastically.

‘what, drinking? I never drank’ he giggled trying to stand straight.

‘Derek, we discussed this….’ I moaned, running my fingers though my hair. We had discussed it and he just kept disobeying me.

‘Yeah I know, and I said that you need to loosen up which you do’ he laughed at himself as he loosened his tie around his neck and flung himself onto the sofa.

‘you know I don’t like the person you become when you get pissed’ I slammed my fist on the bench so he would turn around a look at me.

‘Sweetheart, sweetheart’ he smiled getting up off the lounge and wobbling towards me. He wrapped his arms around my waist and rested his head on my shoulder.

‘DON’T TOUCH ME…’ I snapped, hitting his hands away from my body.

‘oh baby, I know you like it’ he grinned reaching out to touch me again.

‘Derek, Im serious… go to bed’ I moaned turning around to face the kitchen sink. I placed one dirty plate into the dish water and started to scrub frustratingly.

‘Babe, come on…’ he started to tickle me and I tried so hard not to laugh.

‘no Derek, you come on’ I wept. Right now he wasn’t being too bad but it was later when he really became aggressive and that scared me.

‘oh, are you serious… lighten up’ he groaned still wrapping his arms around me. I turned around to face him and he just smirked at my angry face.

‘DEREK!’ I absolutely hollowed as I unlatched myself from him and stormed into the bedroom, slamming the door.

‘DAPHNI, GET OUT HERE’ he pounded on the door.

I opened the door slowly to see Derek standing there with a fowl expression on his face.

‘I don’t see what your problem is’ he reached over, pulling me towards him.

‘Stop, I don’t want to do this why you are like…. This’ I pointed towards him and he just shrugged.

‘NO!’ I snapped slapping him across the face.

He held his reddened cheek and smiled wickedly. He lifted his hand and smacked my trembling cheek bone. I felt the ache in my jaw get stronger as he moved his hand away, crying.

‘oh Daphni, im sorry… oh my god’ he stood there stunned at what he had just done to me.

‘SLEEP THERE’ I yelled pointing to the sofa bed and running into the bedroom weeping.

My cheek began to throb and I could really feel the aching pain now. I grabbed the closest mirror and took a quick look.

Blood and tears running down my face; I couldn’t bear the sight of me. I placed the mirror on my bedside table and walked into the bathroom, tabbing my face with a warm cloth and watching myself cry.

After I cleaned myself up, I jumped into bed trying to doze off to sleep. I toss and I turned, repeating what had just happened over and over again in my head. I couldn’t believe I was in the relationship where the woman got abused… I just couldn’t believe it; I didn’t want to believe it.

*the next morning*

‘Daphni’ I heard someone whisper outside the bedroom door.

‘come in Derek’ I rubbed my eyes and cringed at the pain of my cheek.

‘oh my god’ he stood there with his hand over his mouth staring at me. A worried expression flew across his face… ‘i…i..did that’ he stumbled the words out of his mouth.

‘yes’ I placed one hand up to my cheek and ran my fingers over the scar it had left.

‘im so so so so so.. no words explain how sorry I am. I wont drink again, I promise… I cant believe I did that’ he stood there in front of me trembling, holding his head in his hands and running his fingers through his gorgeous hair.

‘Derek, don’t drink again’ I forgave him quickly. As I gestured my hand out towards him… he took my hand hastily and jumped into the empty spot next to me on the bed, wrapping his arms around my body and whispering… ‘I love you so much; I won’t ever drink again… Im so terribly sorry’
