How did I get here?

A 16 year-old girl struggles with a Mom that has breast cancer, a Dad that can't see her, and abusive sisters. Her only escape is her boyfriend, who made her promise not to cut herself anymore. When they get into a fight she stops cutting and finds an escape from everything, forever, but someone gets in the way. But her identity is revealed and things go downhill from there.(anything italicized is dialogue by the way.)


7. Alex. What are we going to do with you?

    Scarlett. Scarlett. Wake up. I can’t lose you. Please.

    Funny. I hear crying. Why am I in a bed? I thought I was in the sea. I force myself to sit up and look at the where the sound is coming from. I see a blurry figure. My vision straightens out and there’s Alex hunched over sobbing.

    Alex? Alex look at me.

    You’re just another illusion. Go away.

    Alex no I’m not look at me.

    Yes you are! NOW GO THE FUCK AWAY!!!

    Alex. Please look at me. It’s really me. I promise.

    Scar never makes promises. Besides she’s been in a coma for a year.


    Why does it feel like I’m talking to a real person? I’m going crazy aren’t I?

    It’s because I am a real person.

    That’s when my mom walked in. She just stood there, a silent statue. Her mouth was open and her eyes were unblinking staring at me. Mom’s eyes flickered to Alex sobbing. She raised her eyebrows in wonder of why he wasn’t looking at me.

    Alex. Why aren’t you looking at Scar?

    Because she’s in a coma and there’s an illusion talking to me. Again.

    Alex. She’s real. She’s sitting up staring at you right now.


    He looked up at me.

    SCAR! You’re okay. Right?

    Yes. Of course I’m okay. I’ll always be here. I told you this before Alex. Why wouldn’t I be okay.

    They look at each other like they know something I don’t. Then they look back at me.

    Uhh.. Am I missing something here?

    Scar. You’ve… you’ve been in a coma for… for a… a…

    Can I not get any info around here?

    A YEAR OKAY! Are you happy now?

`    And with that he storms out of the room. I don’t even know what to think. A year? How is that possible? I got marked with a unicorn horn and we went to the water. I got in the water and I thought I passed out for a couple hours. Not a year.

    Is… is it true, Mom?

    Yes sweetie. We’ve all been affected by it, but none as much as Alex has. He hasn’t left your side except to go to the bathroom. He hasn’t eaten anything either. Just drinking water.  He’s only 95 pounds.

    Noo.. This is all my fault. If I hadn’t went and tried to shoot myself in the head none of this would have happened. Where is he? I have to go find him?

    No. You probably can't even walk.

    Watch me. Now where is he?

    I’m not telling you.

    Fine. I’ll find him myself.

    I got up. I was a bit unsteady on my feet but I could walk fine. My mother just stood in the corner watching. Probably waiting for me to fall. I won’t fall. Think Scar think. Where's the most likely place he would go?
