Seeing the bruise on her once was heartbreaking. But seeing it again and knowing how it happened, just broke me on the inside.
I stared at Helen. She had one knee pulled to her chest, her left leg was tucked under her. She was staring at the living room floor. Motionless.
We all where. Just sitting there, gathering our thoughts. Speechless.
I rubbed my eyes, "Helen, why wouldn't you tell Dad?"
"Luke, I just couldn't! You don't know how it feels to be scared everywhere you go. Constantly looking over your shoulder, hoping he wasn't there. And when I was alone, I spent it in pain, placing cuts on my wrists to hopefully feel less worthless and scared."
"You're not worthless. Don't say that to yourself. I love you okay, I don't want you to get hurt like that ever again. We are all here for you," I said then paused. "Wait you have been dating Brad for over a year? Why didn't you tell me that you had a boyfriend and that he...he beat you?"
Helen shook her head.
"Brad was and idiot for doing something like that to you," Michael said.
Helen smiled a little.
"He does not know how to treat a woman." Ashton said.
"You deserve better," Calum said.
Helen smirked, "Thanks guys, you're the best."
"No problem, whenever you need to talk, we are here for you. We can be your own personal therapists," Michael said.
"Yea, just try to forget about it," Ashton said.
"You can't forget the fact that someone broke you," Helen replied.
She got up and ran up the stairs.
"I appreciate you guys talking to her," I said, "But I want to speak with her privately."
I walked up the stairs and towards her door. I opened it and she was sitting on her bed.
"Hey, Hugaboo," I said.
She looked up and smiled.
"You haven't called me that in a while," She said.
"Just thought you needed it," I replied and walked towards her bed. I sat in front of her and pulled her into a hug.
"Hey, you're going to be okay. I really care about you and I won't anything bad happen to you, okay?" I asked.
"Okay." She replied. "We just quoted 'The Fault In Our Stars."
I snorted, "Yea we did. You going to be okay?"
"Yea, I'm good." She replied.
I nodded and kissed her forehead, "I love you."
"Love you too, Hemmo."
I smiled and walked out her room. I bounded down the stairs and sat back down on the couch.
"Is she going to be alright?" Calum asked worried.
"Yea, she said she is going to be fine," I replied.
"Hey, Calum, can I ask you something?" I asked.
"Yea, sure what is it?" He asked.
"Do you have a crush on my sister?" I questioned
