7. Cuts

I had tears pouring down my face as I sat near the bus stop. I covered my face with my hands sobbing. Suddenly a car pulled up by the entrance. I kept my face covered. I heard a door slam and I could feel someone was walking towards me. I felt someone hover over me for a while so, I decided to look up to only see Conner with a concerned expression.

      "C'mon, I'm taking you home," he stated. He picked me up bridal style carrying me to his red mustang. 


"Are you going to tell me what's going on?" Conner asked glancing at me a few times while we were sitting in the car.

        I glanced out the window staying silent. 

        He sighed, knowing he won't get a answer.


Once we got home, I walked to my room, locking the door. I grabbed a blade that is set on my dresser and hesitated but, finally I started digging it through my skin. I gasped, holding onto my wrist. 

      Conner must've heard me cause there was a pounding on the door. "Lalvia, open the door!"

      I stayed silent, staring at the walls. 

     "Lalvia, open the door!" he tried again. Second cut.

      "Lalvia, please open the door," he cried. Third cut.

       "Lalvia at least speak to me." Fourth cut and fifth cut.

       "Um, I'm just changing," I lied. 'Maybe, I will really change,' I thought. I had blood all over my sleeve.

        I picked out a random tee shirt that was long sleeved and I picked out some jogging pants with a beanie. I took off my shirt to see the other cuts I have had over time was healing but, still noticeable. I took off my pants to see all the cuts I had on my thighs. I pulled on my jogging pants.

        Finally I heard a huge noise and glanced at the door. Conner broke his way in and stood shocked looking over at me. 

        I finally found my voice after a moment of silence. "I told you I was changing."

        He didn't speak as he still looked shock. "I h-heard you crying," he said finally finding his voice. He walked over to me glancing at my stomach. "Your beautiful."

       "Even with the cuts?"

       "Even with the cuts."

        He bent over and planted his lips on mine.
