5. Bruises

I woke up to a loud shrill scream. I jolted awake and looked around the room. I had forgotten I was in Liam's room. I quickly arose and moved to the door. I opened it and padded down the hall to the family room. Liam sat on the couch. He looked tired as his mom yelled "Why are you in here? You scared me!" I moved up behind her and Liam smiled when he say me. Karen turned around and looked at me. "Emily! What happened to your head?" she asked. Again, I had forgotten about my forehead. I rubbed my hand over the bump that had formed overnight.

"It's nothing," I said. Liam stood up and moved over to me.

"Are you sure you’re ok?" Liam asked me as he gave me a hug. I nodded.

"What happened?" Karen asked.

"My mum freaked out yesterday and hit me," I whispered.

"Has she hit you before?" Karen asked looking at me head. I looked down for a while then nodded. I had never admitted to my mom's abusive behavior. "Sit down sweetie," Karen said as she helped me over to the couch. Liam sat down beside me and grabbed my hand as his mum slowly removed the bandage from my head. I flinched. Down the hall I heard a door open and two girls came walking out.

"Mum, what’s going on out here?" they both asked. Liam looked at me as the girls walked into the family room.

"Em, these are my sisters Ruth and Nicole," Liam said.

"Did she sleep here all night?" Ruth asked. Karen nodded.

"She has some family issues going on so she's going to be staying here for a while," Liam said.

"Well where did she sleep last night?" Nicole asked.

"She slept in my room," Liam said and soon both of the girls were laughing.

"Our little bro is already losing his virginity!" they both squealed. Liam blushed.

"I slept on the couch," Liam said. Both girls nodded.

"Well then, keep it down out here. We're trying to sleep," Ruth said as both girls walked back into their room.

Karen stood up and walked into the kitchen and came back a moment later with a large red box. She kneeled down next to me and set the box down. She pulled out another bandage and covered my bump. She stood back up and smiled at me.

"Now you know you can stay here as long as you want," she said. I nodded. "Now do you have any other places where your mum hit you?" I shoke my head.

"No, she only hit me on my forehead yesterday," I mumbled.

"No I mean, you said that she's abused you before. Do you have any other marks where she has hit you previously?" Karen clarified. I slowly nodded. "Can I see?" she asked as she grabbed my hand. "If you want, we can send Liam out of the room," Karen added quickly. I shoke my head.

"No, I think Liam should she what has happened," I looked over at Liam. "If that’s all right with you?" I added.

"No, I would like to see. If you don't mind," Liam said. I stood up slowly and pulled off my shirt. I still had a bra on, but I felt naked. Karen gasped as she saw all my cut and bruises on my back and chest. Liam stood up and started to trace one of my scars that ran along my shoulder. Karen walked around me in a circle. She looked shocked.

"How long has this been going on?" she asked. I shrugged.

"Since my dad left when I was about 6 or 7," I said as Liam grabbed my hand. He came down to my level and whispered in my ear.

"Your safe here with me. I won't let anyone hurt you ever again."
