Until, her bully starts to notice her scars, and her smile. Her beautiful smile, the one he has so ruthlessly taken away from her. Can Emily's bully save her, before it's too late?

Emily's POV

Luke fucking Hemmings. What the hell is he doing here?! He's the one who started this, who made me want to end my life since the sixth grade. He stands awkwardly inside the doorway, pale hand still clutching the door handle as if it was the only thing keeping him stable. His deep blue eyes are a shade lighter than usual, turning them pale blue.

"H-hey Emily" he says, trying to look anywhere but at me, at what he has done. I stare at him, the anger about to erupt from my screaming chest. "What the fuck do you think you're doing here?!" And then it clicks. The car. The noises downstairs. It was him, all him. "I-" but I cut him off. "IT WAS YOU! WHY WOULD YOU SAVE ME? I JUST WANT TO DIE AND I GUESS ITS ALL BECAUSE OF YOU" For the first time in my life, I let my guard down.

Luke just stands there, mouth open, pale eyes pleading. In seconds, he's by my bed, clutching my hand, being careful of my many cuts. "Emily I'm so sorry. I can't explain to you how fucking sorry I am. When I saw what is done to you, I lost it. Emily I care about you. I really do. And I'm such a fucking idiot that I didn't know how to get you to like me. I don't know why I did all that shit, I really don't, and I know now that you'll never forgive me. I'm so fucking sorry Emily and it kills me to see you like this. It kills me to see you like this, because I love you.
