8. Releasing My Secret
"Cara would like to tell you her full story." Niall told them.
"Okay only I you're ready." Liam said.
"I am. Okay so it started when I was five. My mom was hit by a drunk driver and instantly killed. A couple months later my dad came home drunk and started hitting me and abusing me. It kept getting worse until the worst thing happened, he stabbed me." I lifted my shirt showing the boys my scars, cuts, scrapes, and bruises. "Then I sighed up for the X-Factor and it was all good until I didn't make it finals. Then I met you guys but f I go back to my dad's he will probably try to kill me and most likely succeed. So yeah." I sucked down a breath and tears slipped down my cheeks.
"I'm so sorry Cara we had no idea." Zayn said as he hugged me.
"You can stay with us as long as you need. Which works for you and Niall." Louis snickered as we all laughed. He can make you laugh in the worst situations.
"Can I tell you guys something I've never told anyone before?" I asked biting my lip.
"Course love!" They all replied in unison.
"I...I think I love you guys." I ran to the bathroom and got my blade out. I screamed as it cut into my skin just as the boys walked in. Harry and Niall grabbed me and set me on the bed while Liam got a cloth to clean it up.
"No...no Cara you you cut!!" Niall cried.
"It was my escape Niall I'm so sorry." I sobbed into the pillow.
"Let us see your scars." Harry pleaded. I lifted my shirt slowly and showed him my stomach and thighs.
"Ju...just swear you'll never ever do it again!!" Niall pleaded.
"I swear." I promised.
