9. Chapter Nine

I look at the tattoo on my collar bone. On the other collar bone, the scar. I purse my lips together and sigh. I put my shirt on the counter of the bathroom and look close at the scar, leaning into the mirror. I hear footsteps and I jolt up, looking franticly for my shirt. I grab it not so swiftly and try to put it on, but fail terribly. Harry walks in and laughs. 

I feel my cheeks go hot and I feel like I'm about to die from embarrassment. "Well.." He says, walking in. He looks at my tattoo, and not at the bare chest. What a gentlemen I think to myself and smile a little. He smiles and looks at my other collar bone and frowns slightly. "What is that?" He asks soothingly and I sigh. I had to tell him. But I couldn't. "I fell when I was little." I bite my cheek. "You know.." He says, now looking at my bare chest, coming closer. "I may not be from Candor, but I can tell when your lying." My eyes widen and I scoot back some. "Fine..." I moan and put my shirt back on. "When I was little, my mom always scolded me for not telling the truth. She usually took away something, or just plain hit me. I got tired of it two years ago and fought back, big mistake." I fight back tears. "I slapped her back, and she took out a knife, and at I ran up to my room, I turned back slightly, and she threw the knife, hitting my shoulder. I ran into my room and cried for hours." I feel tears streaming down my face and I hug Harry. He rubs my back and says sorry a million times. "Don't be. It's not your fault." I whisper back and we continue to hug.
