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.)


8. Solved that

That’s it. He won’t be in the house. He’ll be the in the last place he saw me. I started to run. I wobbled a bit but I stayed on my feet. I ran into the the woods and tripped. I can’t go on. I summon what’s left of any energy. The water comes to me and picks me up. My water disk floats out of the trees. The dark shadow against the sun doesn’t look like Alex. But then again he’s what, 95 pounds? I keep floating towards him. I’m right next to him now and the water puts me down. I take his arm in my hand. His arm is so tiny and skinny I can wrap one of my hands all the way around it.

    Alex. You have to eat something.

    No, I don’t. I’ve gone a year without food. I’m fine.

    Look at you. I could wrap my hands around your waist. You’re not okay Alex.

    You can’t control me.

    I turn and start walking away.

    Fine. I don’t need a stupid bitch like you in my life. Goodbye.

    I can’t believe what I just said. I’m breaking not only his heart but mine as well. I start to walk towards the water. I’ll just go live in the ocean if nobody listens to me. I hear a thump and glance back to see him on his knees. I keep walking. I can’t see him like this.

    SCAR… WAIT PLEASE. I need you. I-I can’t live without you. I promised myself I wouldn’t eat until you woke up.

    I pause, turn around, and start to walk towards him.

    Alex, I’m here now. You need to eat something. Go get a sandwich or something. Come on.

    But, but what if this is all a dream? What if I’m going crazy?

    Alex. Look at me. Do you see the spark in my eyes you always tell me I have?

    I was kneeling in front of him before I even knew what was happening. He looked at me. First, he looked at my mouth, but his eyes slowly found his way up to my eyes. Alex stared into my eyes for a full minute.

    But… But what if I’m imagining the spark?

    You’re not Alex. Why can’t you just trust me for once?

    I do trust you Scar. I just don’t know if you’re real or not.

    You know what? That’s it. I can’t. I just can’t. I’m not going to sit around and watch yourself starve to death. You’re going home. I don’t care if you like it or not. You are.

    No I… I can’t go home. What about Scar?

    I am Scar. For the last fucking time I am Scar.

    How can I be sure?

    You know what. You are going fucking home. If you say no one more time, I will fucking kill myself.

    I’m not going home.

    Fine. You can sit here while I go fucking kill myself. I’m not going to stand around and watch you starve yourself to death.


I storm back to the house. How could he do this to me? He thinks I’m an illusion. Can’t he see I’m real? I’m so mad right now. He jumps up and starts to follow me. Alex is walking in front of me backwards now. I can tell he’s searching my eyes, trying to see if I’m real. He pulls me into a hug.
    It is you. Thank goodness. I thought I had lost you forever Scar. Don’t do that to me again.

    If you eat something. I have a surprise for you.

    What kind of surprise?

    You’ll have to eat something to find out.

    Oh. That sounds good. I haven’t eaten in so long.

    That would be your fault.

    We continue to walk to the house. When we’re in the kitchen, I walk over to the cabinets and make a quick sandwich. I slide it in front of him and tell him to eat it slowly. He nods and picks it up. Alex starts to eat it slowly but winds up shoving the entire thing in his mouth. I shake my head and motion for him to come. He gets up and follows.

    What’s the surprise??

    You’ll have to wait.

    Come on. Tell me.


    We walk into my bedroom. It’s furnished with a large king size bed and a dresser. On the side of the room is a door to a bathroom.  I push him onto the bed and he gasps.

    Scar. What is this? Are you… are you finally going to…

    Yes I am. And to you.

    Up until now I had been a virgin. Alex always asked me when I was going to lose it. He’s a virgin too and had been saving it for me. Alex said he would wait for when I was ready, but I don’t think he thought it was going to be this soon.

    Happy 18th birthday to me. Alex, are you sure you're ready for this?

    I hesitated before I climbed on the bed. He nodded eagerly, looking my body up and down, imagining it naked probably.

    I see that look. Wipe that off.

    What if I don’t want to?

    The last thing I remember is him on top of me ripping my shirt off. I guess I shouldn't have chugged that whiskey.
