1. So it Begins
July 22nd to be exact.
Year 4, she was only 9. How can children be so cruel at the age of 9?
That day this girl came to school eager to learn just like every other day, but soon she noticed her best friend, her rock, wasn't there. That was when she knew that it could only go down hill.
As Recess neared the children gave her evil smirks but she kept her head down focusing on her work. The bell rang and eventually she walked outside only to be tackled by a group of about five or six girls.
They took her behind the school to where no one could hear or see them, they began circling her. Cussing at her. Calling her names such as 'fatass' or 'whale.'
She remained silent and even when they threw her to the ground and carelessly threw punches at her she did not once make a noise. The bell rang once again and they all left her there, not caring if she lived or died.
The girl was left beaten, bloody and bruised. She was too weak to stand so she sat there and cried. No one came to look for her because she was insignificant enough that no one even noticed her absence. The whole day she say in the rocks and dirt.
As the sky grew darker the girl walked home, her disfigured state left unnoticed by her family. It was that night the girl aged only 9 first took that blade to her skin. That same blade that would haunt her for years to come.
