When Luke was finished changing he came back and sat down on the bed where I was.
"So what do you want to talk about?" I asked Luke.
"Well can I ask you something? I don't want you to get made at me or anything..."
"Yeah go for it." I was getting really nervous.
All he did was reach forward and grab my left hand. Oh god.
He took off the bracelets one by one. "I know why you ware these...." He kept taking them off until there was none left. He flipped my wrist over. I felt a tear roll down my cheek. I let my hand go. And grabbed his left wrist. And turned his wrist over
to expose a lot of scars they all looked quite old though. "I know why you ware these because i wore them too."
"How did you know about it...?" I asked him.
"Well when i was about to pick you up i saw the numerous amount of bracelets. I want to tell you it is going to be better and i am going to be here for you and i want you to promise me whenever you want to cut you will knock on my window."
"Yeah i promise Luke."
"No i need you to mean it. You don't deserve this."
"I promise i will." I told him being sincere.
"Okay and don't hide them all of the time. Or be self conscious of them. They are nothing to be ashamed of okay?"
"Okay. But i see them as all the battles I've lost."
He pulled me over to him and held me while i cried into his chest.
"Its gonna be okay. I promise. But lets clean you up because the boys will be here any minute."
We came out of the bathroom and he gave me a hug.
"Thank you" I whispered to him.
