Discovering Scar

When Scarlett moves to Amrica, she begins to find new people, new secrets and a new her.
But with the help of her Soul-partner, can she get through it all?


14. The Sweetest Thing


“There's nothing here,” I groan, looking through another rack of clothes.

“There's always something” Brooke nods determinedly, smiling over the rack at me.

“Here,” She pulls out a red skater skirt at the same time I pull out a black studded bra let.

“Perfect,” She grins and I smile too.


“So, how did your date with Brady go?” I ask Brooke as we sip milkshakes outside a shop at the mall.

“Great,” She grins, putting her milkshake down.

“He was really sweet, he apologised for not calling me over the summer. He was worried that I wouldn't want to know him once we went back to school but I think it was the other way round.” Brooke looks sad for a moment but her dazzling and confident smile soon returns when I offer her the rest of my milkshake.

“Let's go, you've got a very important date to get ready for.” Brooke chimes, lifting me up by the hand and dragging me across the mall.


I turn my music up and pull my new outfit from the bags. Pulling on the red skater skirt that Brooke chose and the black bralet with gold studs running up the sides. I slip on a pair of black heels with matching studs on the back of the heel and a gold necklace of crosses. I pull my waist-length dirty blonde coloured hair down in it's natural loose waves. I pin one side back with a hair piece in the shape of a gold cross. Whilst dancing around my room to the music I have playing, I slick on some black eye-liner, deep crimson lipstick and apply a light tough of blusher to my cheeks. I put in some gold earrings in my three holes on each ear lobe and grab my gold bangles. Looking at myself in my full-length mirror I smile at my reflection.

“Scar! It's quarter to seven!” Ella calls up the stairs.

“Crap,” I exclaim, grabbing my purse and bounding down the stairs as quickly as my heels allow me.

“Oh, Scar!” Ella exclaims, her bright pink hair tied messily at the back of her head.

“You look beautiful,” She says, smiling and kissing my forehead.

“What time will this boy be here?” Ella glances at her watch.

“He said-” I start but the doorbell ringing interrupts me.

“That's him now,” I grin and Ella opens the door. Standing in the porch light, Logan smiles at Ella with a single white rose in his hand. He hands it to Ella and she takes it, bashfully.

“I'm Logan,” He says, taking her hand and kissing it lightly.

“It's lovely to meet you,” She says, clearly impressed. Ella turns to face me, eyebrows lifted and a smile playing at her lips.

“I'll have her back by twelve,” Logan promises as I step out of the door and go to close it.

“Bye,” Ella calls as we walk down the path.

“You look,” Logan stops me, his eyes cruising up and down my body.

“breath-taking.” He breaths. My cheeks explore the red spectrum at his compliment.

“What?” He laughs.

“You don't like compliments?” He opens the car door for me and I slip inside the tall white SUV.

“I do, I just don't know what to do with them.” I admit as he climbs inside and starts the engine.

“Well, you could say...” He starts, pulling the car on to the road.

Why, Logan that is the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me. Thank you ever so much,” Logan's voice sounds in my head in a ridiculous attempt at a British accent.

I do not speak like that!” I exclaim in my thoughts.

I hate to admit it, Scar, but you do.” He smiles impishly at me and I cross my arms across my chest and huff but a smile plays at mine too.


“Thank you for dinner,” I say, as we walk out of the restaurant.

“My pleasure,” He grins, taking my hand.

“Where's the party then?” I ask, squinting in the darkness.

“Just over there,” He says, wrapping his arm around my waist and drawing me closer to him. We walk in a comfortable silence to the sand and I slip off my heels. Logan snatches one from my hand and speeds a head of me; waving it around like a trophy.
