Amber's POV


"Hey Amber, are you okay?" Niall asked concerned.

"Yeah, I'm fine. I'm scared what'll happen if I continue to do it" I replied.

"I'm always here for you, and I'm going to help you stop"

"Okay, thanks. Did you tell mom or dad?" I asked worriedly not wanting to hear the answer.

"no, I knew it'd only make it worse. I'm very worried though, can I see?"


I showed him my arm, it hurt to pull up the sleeve of my Aeropostale sweater. My arm had dried blood around my cuts, there was so many and they didn't go in the same direction either, it hurt! It was red around the many, many cuts it wasn't just from the blood though, it was swollen around them. Underneath the recent cuts you could see where I attempted suicide. It all happened 8 months ago, my biological father had found me and kidnapped me, I was missing for about a month. It was hell, he watched every little move I made, if I didn't clean up something they way he wanted, talked the "wrong way" or didn't put something back in the exact same spot where I got and the exact same position, he'd start yelling and screaming and he'd beat me, and slapped me until I was on the ground curled up in a little ball, but that wouldn't stop him from continuously kicking me. This would happen everyday, multiple times a day. I was always hoping and wishing that someone would find me and bring me back, but after a couple of weeks I lost all hope, I then started wishing I was dead ... That's where those scars came from, I attempted one night but as I passed out from too much blood loss, the police showed up, they found me, but I was almost certain I was going to die.


"Amber, don't think about that, you're not there anymore, he's put away" He said knowing exactly what I was thinking.

"I know, I know, it's just so hard not to think about it when all I see are those scars reminding"

"I know, I'm just glad you're saved, everyone was so worried, especially me! I honestly don't know what I would of done if I lost my only little sisters."


I didn't know how to reply so I just said "I love you", I don't usually like talking about this, but with Niall it was different, I felt like I could trust and talk to him about anything.

Niall's POV

I don't like seeing Amber like that, it scared me, it's only me and her that knew about it, but I'm really afraid it's going to get worse. I never did understand the point of cutting. We've talked about it before and what I got was from it is that it turns emotional pain into physical pain, but I don't see how that helps, because you still have all the same problems you had before, cutting doesn't make them go away. I don't know, but I'm not going to make it seem like I think it's stupid or I'm judging her because she'll stop talking to me about it and I don't even think of it like that. I just want to help her and I'm really glad she trusts me.


I'm just thankful for the adoption, who knows what would of happened to her if she stayed with her birth parents. Thinking about that terrifies me, she's so innocent and kind hearted, I don't know how someone could be so cruel to her!


"Okay girly, it's getting late, you should really be getting to sleep" I said trying to lighten the mood. She always laughs when I call her girly, she finds it so dorky, but it's one of the little things I can do to make her smile!

"Awww, but why?!" She asks jokingly.

"Because, aren't you wanting to come with me to Harry's tomorrow?"

"Of course I do!"

"Okay we have to be there by 8 and I know you don't like getting up in the morning"

"I know, I know, I'm going"


Uncrossing her legs she walks over to her dresser to get a pair of shorts and a tank top. I look away as she changes, in just a few seconds she's walking over to her bed, before she gets in she gives me a hug then she gets under the covers. I start to walk over to her door to leave, just as I cross the room, she's in bed, but she stops me from leaving.



"Yeah, love?"

"Thank you"

Anytime for you"

"Any girl would be lucky to have you" She softly says.

"Really?!" I ask, I've never been told that before.

"Really! I love you big bro"

"I love you too little sis." And with that I leave turning her lights off and shutting her door.
