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?


1. One Step At A TIme

I walk. My long black hair covering my face as much as I can. Everyone seems to clear the way when I start walking... As if I could intoxicate them by a gentle stroke of my bookbag.

I sit down and start writing. My friend sits by me. She isn't listening neither am I, but for some reason I always seem to get better grades.

I start writing, 'My tears fall heavy and fast as I make the gentle stroke of the blade on my wrist. The tears may fall fast... But the blood falls faster.' My friend, Harper, looks at what I'm writing then pulls up my sleeve. I have a new cut.

"Damn it Mary." Harper whispers.

"Sorry Harper." I cover up my arm fast.

"And Mary." The teacher says with anger, "What is so important that you need to talk about it in the middle of my teaching?" She asks.

"Nothing Mrs. Nomen."

"Have you been listening?" Mrs. Nomen asks.

"Yes Mrs. Nomen."

"Then please tell me, what is the most you remember from the preamble of the United States Constitution?"

"Well Mrs. Nomen I can tell you the whole thing. 'We the people, of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common Defense, promote the general Welfare, secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

The teacher just rolled her eyes and went back to her lesson of the USA.

Ugh is this all in life that I'll ever get? Just a few smarts and a few lucky breaks? I take out a marker and write above my new cut.

'Last cut for life.'

Then I draw a butterfly beside it.

"Please be the last cut..."I whisper to myself then I walk back down the cleared hallways and walk right out of the school.


Hope you liked it. Sorry that it's short I have just wrote a lot in my other story so my creative writing juices are running low. Next chapter will be better then this one promise :) Just putting this out there I did not google or bing or whatever the preamble to the US Constitution. I had to learn that in fifth grade and kinda never left my head :p.Well thanks for reading love! <3 Remember to comment, fan me, favorite the story, or heart it if you want more so I know people want to read it XD
