"I'm so sorry Scar. I'm glad you told me." He said kissing the top of my head.

I pushed away from him, "Why do you care so much about me?" He's a teacher, of course, they need to care but for some reason deep down in my heart, I want it to be a different reason.

"Because I know I can treat you better." He blurted out.

Looks like I'm not the only one feeling brave.

"Mr-Adam what are you saying?" I asked my heart beating faster.

"Exactly what I said. I know this is the worst timing and that you're my student but I honestly don't care. I really like you, Scarlett." He said gently placing his hand on my cheek like he did in the classroom. I couldn't speak, his words stun me.

"Adam?" I whispered breathlessly.

"Be with me, Scarlett Rose."

6. Feeling Brave

He turned to them smiling, "Mr and Mrs Rose." He brought out his hand shaking Mom's hand first and when it was Dad's turn he swats his hand away.

"Don't touch me ass."

Mom shot him a glare but he ignored it. I felt a blush creeping on my face from embarrassment. Dad walked over to me standing beside the desk.

He looked at me reaching down patting my leg hard. I took a sharp breath the pain was unbearable, "What did the slut do this time, eh?" He asked looking at Mr Watson.

I closed my sketch pad trying to blink away the tears from the pain.

Mr Watson coughed awkwardly, well you wanted them here, "Well Mr Rose, Scarlett is a very good student I just wanted to see if you guys would like to continue the after school tutoring that her old teacher was doing."

Dad snorted, "She's retarded, let her fail."

"Andrew stop it." Mom snapped not able to hold back. I looked at her shock, he's going to hurt her.

Dad was taken back by her tone, "Excuse me, woman?" He snapped back.

Realizing what she done I could see the fear in her face, "N-Nothing," She turned to Mr Watson, "Help her in any way you can."

I knew she meant more than just the tutoring.

Dad walked over to her grabbing her by the arm, "This meeting is over." He said loudly for Mr Watson to hear. He jerked her out of the classroom.

Mr Watson looked at me like everything made sense, he closed the door gently behind them then turned to me.

"The pantyhose, what happened?" He softly asked.

"Will this stay between us?" I whispered.

"Yes, I'm here for you. I want to help." He asked walking to me, I took a step back making him stop.

My mind was racing, could I trust him? Would he actually care? He knows about Ray how would he feel knowing about Dad?

"You don't have to tell me right away. I want you to trust me," He opened his arms, "Do you feel comfortable hugging me?"

I took a few steps towards him, "Do you think you could help me?" I asked sounding hopeful.

"I'll do everything I can."

I'll do everything I can, his words repeated in my head.

Against my better judgment, I hugged him hard. He hesitated to wrap his arms around me but he did. It felt amazing to hug someone with no fear. I started sobbing into his chest clinging onto his shirt for dear life. He held me letting me cry.

"Shhh," He whispered while rubbing my hair, "It'll be okay, I'm here now."

"Thank you, I appreciate it." We let go of each other. He walked around to his desk and wrote on a piece of paper. He walked over to me and picked up my hand gently placing the folded up paper into my hand and collapsed my hand around it.

"This is my cell phone number. Please Scar call if something happens."

I nodded, "Thank you so much, Mr Watson."

"Please call me Adam, well when nobody is around." He chuckled.

I smiled at him, "Yes of course. Well, I better get going Adam."

"I wish you didn't have to go," Adam said sadly, I could see the worry on his face.

"Me too but I must," I said giving him one last hug catching him off guard. I opened the door leaving his room.

Adam Watson, what are you doing to me?

I thought about everything on my way home about how Dawn was right about everything and I know she cared then Mr Watson showed me something that no other male has, gentleness. I wanted to stay with Ray because he stood up against Dad but now he's turning into a monster, I thought he would get out of it but they never do.

I saved Adam's number into my cell phone as I made it home before the rain started. I open the door to find Ray sitting on the couch.

"What are you doing here?" I asked he knew where the spare key was and no one was home, where did Mom and Dad go?

"Close the damn door."

"No." I stood my ground feeling brave like a child standing up to their bully.

I feel a change in me and honestly, I welcomed it.

He stood off the couch throwing a glass bottle against the wall shatter near me I watched it shatter.

I looked at him, "You don't scare me Ray, not anymore!" I screamed at him.

He ran to me pushing me against the wall and kicked the door close, "You little bitch! You don't get to talk to me like that!" He yelled grabbing my shirt throwing me on the floor right on top of the broken shards. I could feel the sharp edges cut me.

I tried to scream but he sat on top of me choking me my hands try to pry his off but it was no use. He let go of my throat grabbing a big shard. He ripped open my shirt revealing my scars when Dad attacked me with a knife when I was 13.

"I don't know why I ever protected you," He said lightly dragging the shard against my stomach; I was too terrified to move, "Looking back on all of it now I shouldn't have."

"Stop, you don't have to to this," I said in between sobs, it's the same thing I said to Dad when he sat on top of me with the knife. 

"Maybe I could just do something else, I'm not really a blood kind of guy." He smirked at me bringing out zip ties from his back pocket he put my wrist together putting the zip tie around them making sure it was on tightly he got off of me quickly walking into the kitchen. I looked at the shards on the floor realizing the liquid in the bottle he had was alcohol. I picked up a little shard and started rubbing the sharp end against the zip tie not caring that it's cutting into my skin.

Ray returned with silver duck tape he placed some on my mouth. He picked me up bridal style taking me upstairs to my bedroom I struggled in his arms not wanting to make this easy on him. He threw me on my bed my head hit the backboard. My vision was blurred but that didn't stop me from cutting the zip tie, I must break free.

He took off his shirt while walking to me he grabbed me by my pantyhose pulling me to him in the process he ripped the black fabric.

"Ew, these are so fucking nasty." He made a face at the cuts Dad made with the belt, "That sick fuck."

Not caring about his words I stretched my arms above my head the zip tie finally broke off. I reached far enough to grab my lamp on my nightstand.

"What-" He started to say but I mashed the lamp against his head he stumbled back into the wall daze.

I ran out of my room going downstairs. I went through my backpack grabbing my cell phone and ran out of the house into the rain. I didn't care about my rip clothing or shoes as I ran as fast as I could to the nearest gas station. I went inside to their bathroom locking the door and called Adam. I could've called Dawn but I wanted to see if Adam was true to his word.

"Hello?" He answered.

"A-Adam it's me, Scarlett."

"Scar? Did something happen with your Dad?"

I sniffled, "No. Ray attacked me; I managed to get away to the nearest gas station." I told him which gas station I'm at then we said our goodbyes and hung up.

MR WATSON POV

I was home when she called me. I quickly put on a shirt and hoodie then slipped on socks and shoes. I grabbed my keys leaving to the gas station she's at.

I called her pulling into a parking spot.

"Hello?" She answered.

"It's Adam. I'm in the front in a black truck."

"Okay." She hung up.

When she came outside I noticed her ripped shirt and pantyhose. I couldn't believe what she was hiding under her clothing; old thick scars covered her lower stomach and the cuts on her legs happened recently and I know it wasn't Ray. I gripped the steering wheel my hands turning white, I'll kill him! That bastard! 

She opened the door climbing in.

"You must be freezing," I said turning on the heat to full blast.

She looked at me, "Thank you for coming."

"Of course, are you okay?" I know it was a stupid question but I felt like asking. I pulled out of the gas station heading to my apartment.

"Yes, for the first time I stood up for myself." She said staring out the window.

"Good," I said glancing at her hand the urge of holding it overcame me as I gently laid my hand on top of hers.

Once we arrived at my apartment I turned my truck off.

"Here." I took off my hoodie giving it to her. She put it on before stepping out of the truck. I grabbed my keys and stepped out. We both bolted to the front door.

"Follow me," I said walking up two flights of stairs until we reached the second floor then walked to my door; I unlocked it letting her walk in first.

SCARLETT POV

I can't believe what is happening right now.

I'm at his apartment, wearing his hoodie and of course, I'm nervous.

I heard him close the door behind me as I walked further in. His place wasn't bad, there were a couch, TV and a coffee table in the living room. The kitchen was small with a small table in it.

"You need dry clothes. Will mine be okay?" Adam asked.

I turned to him nodding as I took off his hoodie.

He walked away then returned with striped pjs and a Five Finger Death Punch shirt.

I raised an eyebrow, "You're a Five Finger Death Punch fan?"

He smiled, "Hell yeah!"

I laughed as he handed me the clothes.

"Bathroom is just right around the corner." He said pointing down the hallway.

"Thank you," I said handing him back his hoodie.

"Wait, you're bleeding," Adam said showing me his hand with blood on it. I forgot about my lower back bleeding.

"It's my lower back," I explained to him what happened.

He closed his eyes in anger, "I hate him so much," He opened his eyes looking at me, "Come on I'll take a look at it." He said walking down the hallway he tossed the hoodie in the dirty clothes basket then turned on the lights to the bathroom.

I walked in keeping my back to him as I took off my shirt.

"It's still bleeding but it isn't too bad. Do you mind if I take care of it? I have a first aid kit."

"No that's fine," I mumbled.

After taking care of my back Adam left letting me change into his clothes. I grabbed a towel and dried my hair the best I could then used his hair brush to brush it. After I finished I picked up my wet clothes and went into the kitchen throwing them away, there's no point in keeping them. I walked into the living room sitting beside Adam on the couch he was watching CSI.

"Want some tea?" Adam asked standing I looked at him to answer but my words caught in my throat.

He changed his sweatpants but he didn't have a shirt on right in my view was his toned abs.

"Sweet mother of god," I whispered.

His lips twitched, "Scar?"

I realized I was making my starting very noticeable. I trailed my eyes back up meeting his, "Um." I blushed looking away.

He scratched his head, "Right sorry I hope you don't mind, I, uh, ran out of shirts." He admitted embarrassingly.

I laughed a little, "Okay. Yeah, I'd like some tea."

He smiled, "Yes ma'am." He walked into the kitchen.

He returned later with two cups, "Be careful it's hot." He said handing me my cup. The heat felt good against my cold hands.

He sat down beside me and I tried my hardest not to stare at his beautiful tone stomach.

"Scar?"

I looked at him, he set his cup on the coffee table then leaned back giving me a perfect view of his stomach.

I hate him.

He started smirking.

"Oh my god. I'm so sorry." I flushed with embarrassment setting down my cup on the coffee table I covered my face with my hands.

He chuckled, "It's okay, really." He scooted closer to me, "Can you look at me?"

I slowly dropped my hands looking at him.

"He choked you?" He asked in a whisper as he lightly touched my throat.

I shut my eyes in fear, "Y-Yes." Ray must have left hand prints.

"He's going to pay for what he did to you, I'll make sure of it and the marks on your legs did your father do that?"

I mentally cursed, he saw them? 

"Yes." I whispered looking at him, "Ray found out he was hurting me and put an end to it a year ago but when his parent's got a divorced it changed him into a monster." I started crying Adam held me rubbing my back.

"I'm so sorry Scar. I'm glad you told me." He said kissing the top of my head.

I pushed away from him, "Why do you care so much about me?" He's a teacher, of course they need to care but for some reason deep down in my heart, I want it to be a different reason.

"Because I know I can treat you better." He blurted out. 

Looks like I'm not the only one feeling brave.

"Mr-Adam what are you saying?" I asked my heart beating faster.

"Exactly what I said. I know this is the worst timing and that you're my student but I honestly don't care. I really like you, Scarlett." He said gently placing his hand on my cheek like he did in the classroom. I couldn't speak, his words stun me.

"Adam?" I whispered breathlessly.

"Be with me, Scarlett Rose."
