I saw the bruise and was immediately pissed. Who gave it to her? I know she didn't get it during the fight. It looks like its been there for a couple of days. Or weeks.
My heart shattered when I saw the bruise. Who would do this to my sweet little sister?
I swear I'm going to murder whoever hurt her.
Suddenly something clicked in my head.
"You shouldn't tell your brother what I did to you, Helen."
"Brad, no! Please, Brad that hurts!"
"Has he ever hit you?"
"No, he would never do that!"
Everything was leading to one person and one person only.
"Brad," I said.
Helen froze and looked at me. "What?"
"Brad, did this to you, huh?"
Helen nodded and tears swelled in her eyes.
I clenched my jaw and balled my fists.
"He made me feel weak, Luke," She said and burst out crying.
I felt my heart break as she broke down into tears. She was so vulnerable, so hurt. It was hard to see.
Her knees gave out but I rushed forward and caught her.
She gripped my arms and sobbed into my chest.
"I'm so sorry Luke. I knew I should have told you but, I I just couldn't talk about it."
I had no words. No reactions. No feelings. I felt numb on the inside.
"Don't tell mom, please, Luke. Don't tell her," Helen said.
I stayed silent, because I knew if I opened my mouth, I'd scream.
I swallowed the ball that was forming in my throat.
"Let's get you cleaned up," I said shakily.
"Okay," Helen said and walked up the stairs.
I stood where I was completely frozen.
"Luke, are you going to be okay?" Helen asked me.
I cleared my throat, "Yea, I'm going to be okay. Just need to think things through."
She nodded and walked upstairs.
My anger slowly leaving my body. I bolted out the door and screamed as I ran. Brad hurt my sister. He hurt the most important person in my life.
I ran until I reached Calum's house. I was fuming.
I knocked on the door and Joy, Calum's mom opened up.
"Hello, Luke. Come in, Calum is downstairs in the basement, with the other boys.
"Thank you, Joy," I said and walked past her and into the basement.
I walked down the stairs and sung the door open and slammed it shut. I was breathing heavily.
"Luke, what's wrong, mate?" Calum asked.
That's when I lost it.
