"Liam what just happened?" I said
"Nothing.. You cant say anything. You have to promise me that."
"Liam. You just got the shit smacked out of you by your own father. You cant stay here. It isn't safe."
"Catherine, believe me its fine. It's the first time its happened."
"Then why dont i believe you?"
"Catherine.. Please." He said with tears in his eyes.
"Then tell me the truth."
"Fine. This isn't the first time. This happens all the time. It all started because one day i went to a party and I came home strait up wasted. My dad beat the living crap outta me. You're the first person i've really opened up to. But i used to be really popular at school but then when i started getting abused it's hard for me to come out of my shell."
"What?" I said.
"You can't say anything."
I started rambling. "Liam. How could you not tell me about this. He-"
Liam put his hand over my mouth "shhh!"
I rolled my eyes. "Fine. But you're coming to my house tomorrow. Our parents are supposed to go out tomorrow. Would you get into a lot of trouble if you spent the night?"
He smiled. "No. I don't think so."
"Good. So its a plan?"
"Yeah. Its a plan."
