Behind The Cuts *Completed*

Every cut is another story. I'm not an open book like everyone seems to think. Why does everyone seem to think they know me? This story is about a young teen just tying to find a place in this world... But will she make it out alive?


6. Clearing My Head

Clearing My Head

Today was my 15th birthday and I'm ready.

Luke texts me.

Hey baby I got a big present for you. Before you get excited it's not sex ;) Come over and find out.

I was so excited.

Ugh sex... That's what almost happened...

I jump out of bed and go running for the door then someone grabs my arm and makes me sit down. I look up... It's Mr. and Mrs. Pleanton. I roll my eyes.


"Well, you've been here for 24 hours and it's your birthday!" Mrs. Pleanton says smiling,

"Oh goodie." I say sarcastically clapping my hands, "Being in foster care for a year I had my birthday there to! Did you know... There they give you cake then try to pull your arm off!" I say.

"Oh you're so funny!" Mr. Pleanton says.

"Okay I know you had some family thing all planned out to do... But I need to get going." I started to walk away but they pulled me back into the chair.

"You are apart of the family." Mrs. Pleanton says. Curtis walked in rolling his eyes.

"It's your birthday isn't it?" He asks.

"Yeah how can you tell?" They had just put a party hat on my head as he was walking in,

"Kinda guessed. Mom, Dad let the poor girl go." They let go of me.

"You have fun!" Mrs. Pleanton says.

"But not too much fun you're only fifteen!" Mr. Pleanton said as I was walking out the door.

When I was outside I heard a window open. I look up and Curtis tossed me a condom.

"You might need that." He said winking. I grab it and put it in my pocket. I had no idea where else to put it.

I get to his house and he opens the door. I give him a quick kiss.

"Hey baby."

"Hey Luke! Where's my present?" He laughs then put a blindfold on me.

We started walking until we got to a door.

"I know you can use it yet... But someday you can." He uncovered my eyes. A car! I run up to it. It's perfect.

"Thank you thank you thank you!" I said running up to him. I gave him a good kiss this time.

"Where's that emo girl I use to know."

"Eh I tried my hardest to leave her a foster care." He smiled.

"I like you this happy." Then he grabbed my arm, "And you are almost always this happy when you have done one thing." He forced up my sleeve. Yep there was a new cut.

"I'm sorry." I started to cry.

"Oh baby." He pulled me into a hug and I cried on his shoulder, "Shh. Don't be sorry. It's okay." I stood there for a good five minutes crying I pulled out of his hug.

"They really hate me... I don't know why." He kissed the top of my head.

"It's only been one day Mary. Do not beat yourself up yet." We walk back into his house and watch a movie. He plays a comedy for me.

We sat there laughing, and kissing for so long... Even when the movie ended we laughed and kissed about everything.

"I really do love you Mary."

"I really do love you too Luke." Then I get a text. I look 'Mom' shows up. I really need to change that.

Mary. U need 2 get home asap bro.

Why she texting like that... it ain't cool. I show Luke and we laugh. I stand up and we kiss one last time for the road and I leave.

I get home and run into Curtis' room and throw the condom on the bed then run downstairs.

"Mary are you okay?" Curtis says running up to me and pulling me into a hug. I push him off.

"What are you doing?"

"Well, we're kinda brother and sister now and your dark makeup is running." I cleaned up my makeup.

"What the hell are you talking about?" He smiled and grabs the water gun off the counter.

"This!" Then he sprayed me in the face. Then everyone started spraying everyone John handed me a squirt gun.

"What's going on?" I ask him.

"We do this every birthday. Everyone gets a squirt gun but the birthday girl or boy doesn't get one. It shows the last year getting cleaned away and I wanted you to have mine." Then he ran downstairs into the basement.

I started spraying everyone. I made sure to hit Emily right in the face.

"You bitch! How did you get one!?"

"John gave it to me." I said.

"Emily we do not use those kinda words here!" Mr. Pleanton said spraying me.

Once we all ran out of water we each gave each other a high five. Then Emily came up. I went to give her a high five and she slapped my across the face.

"Oh I guess I missed your hand."

"Go to your room!" Mrs. Pleanton said.

"You okay?" Curtis asked.

"Fine." I run into my room crying.

I heard a knock.

"You can't come in!" I yell throwing a pillow at who ever was walking in.

"Well your father and I pay the bills." I heard Mrs. Pleanton's voice.

"He isn't my father. If he was then he would be rotting in a jail cell and I wouldn't be here with Emily." I say.

"I'm sorry Emily has been treating you like this." I had on a T-Shirt. She looked down a my arm and saw the newest cut.

"Mary. Why did you do this?" I look down at my arm.

"I don't have to answer that freedom of speech." I turn the other way.

"Mary!" I turn around. Did she just yell at me?

"Wow I've been here for not even two days and you're already yelling?"

"I'm done with you acting like this. I've taken you in and all you've done is be depressed and go out to God only knows where."

"I've been going to Luke's house! Luke is my boyfriend."

"What have you been doing there? Why are you there for hours at a time?"

"Do you think I'm having sex!? I'm fifteen."

"What else can you be doing."

"Watching movies. Talking. Crying. Laughing. Kissing. Not having sex."

"Okay I believe you. But my husband doesn't. He's a year older."

"How on earth does he know that!?"

"Curtis told us when we asked about that. He seems to think that you guys want to but you guys are holding back. Why does he live alone?"

"He got emancipated. You know when a judge tells him he can liv-"

"By himself under restrictions. I know what that is I'm a lawyer."

"Well Mrs. Pleanton I want to go to bed. It's been a long day."

"Did you cut yourself because of me?" I look up at her.

"I was in foster care for a year and I was just dropped into a new home after my dad had tried to kill me so many times. Does that answer your question?" She smiled.

"Never do it again." Then she walks out.

A few minutes later I fall asleep.
