5. I Can't Tell You

Scarlet's P,O,V

The nurse pulled down my sleeve and they all gasped at my cut, bruised, burned and scarred arm. I felt so ugly. A tear escaped my right eye. I just wanted to get up and leave but I was so weak and tired. One of the boys with dark hair and tanned skin left the room and so did one with a buzzed hair cut, but the blonde one stayed by the side the whole time. He looked so worried, but of what? Me? No. I don't understand why he would save me. A boy such as him should have something better to do then save someone like me. My thoughts soon interrupted by a lady's voice. "Sorry, what?" I said not listening to the nurse the first time.

"What happened, dear?" The nurse repeated to me. She had a expression on her face, cross from worried and frightened. I didn't want to tell her because I knew when my dad would pick me up from the hospital, he would hurt me again as my punishment. He said if I ever told someone, he would have to 'dispose' of me. What does that mean? Sadly, I don't know what a lot of things are, considering I haven't went to school since grade one, so when I was six. 

"Umm." I hesitated to come up with an excuse before they noticed. They all were looking at me with anticipation. "I fell." I lied, but it was the only way I could save myself from SOME pain. They all looked at me with disbelief on their faces. 

"You got burns from falling?" The curly haired one quickly questioned back. I just sat there with tears in my eyes, blinking quickly to make them go away. 

"I'm sorry, I can't tell you." I said while I burst into tears while silence fills the room. The blonde one tried to put his hand on mine but I quickly pull away because I was so confused and I didn't even know him. All I know about him is that he pretty much saved my life but I was still frightened. I know it sounds silly to be afraid of someone who saved your life but my emotions were everywhere.

"Sir! You can't go in there without an appoint-" I soon see my father walk into my room with angry all over his face with his fists clenched and his teeth closed together tight. I could tell by the position of his jaw. He was followed by several nurses.
