* I forgot to say that last chapter was in Caroline's POV but it was*

Caroline's POV

When I finished changing I headed back to the living room. Ashton, who had been waiting outside while I changed, grabbed my wrist and said, "I have to show you something." He walked me back into his bedroom and sat me down on the bed. He took off all of his bracelets and held up his wrists for me to see. He said, "I know I haven't gone through your whole journey but I have been through a small part of it. I can help you."

I just sat there looking at the scars scattered across his wrists. I said, "And you stopped for your fans."

He bit his lip nervously, "Yeah. And I never figured out why they did this to me." 

I said in return, "I would cry myself to sleep every night an sometimes I would wake up with new scars. I would sleep through beatings and he would hurt me even more for doing that. When I was at school, people would see the scars and make fun of me calling me 'cutting  board' and other names. I wish I could ju..." I was cut off by Ashton's lips meeting mine. I wasn't in control of myself. I couldn't stop my body from taking over. I kissed back. When I pulled back, I was out of breath. 

Ashton said, "I'm sorry. I don't..." 

I cut him off by saying, "Don't be sorry. Aside from what my d-dad has done, that was my first real kiss. I liked it." He gave me a crooked smile.

He said, "Let's go out so you can meet the boys."

 I had my arms crossed when I walked out there and when I sat down. Ashton said, "Caroline, it's okay. You don't have to hide it." I shook my head.

Luke looked over and asked, "Hide what?" I shook my head again. 

Calum perked up from his slumped position and said, "Caroline, tell us about yourself." 

I said, "My name is Caroline Foster. I have been a fan of you guys since hemmo1996. I dropped out of high school. That's about it."

Michael asked, "Why did you drop out?" 

I replied, "I really don't want to talk about it." 

He asked, "You sure?"

I snapped, "Yes!" 

Ashton changed the subject, "Who wants pizza for dinner?" Everyone replied with either a yes or yeah. Ashton got up to order pizza. As he walked back in, I yawned and stretched my arms. Luke's Michael's and Calum's eyes widened in shock. I curled up in a ball on the floor. Ashton came over and comforted me.

I whispered to Ashton, "They hate me. I am ugly."

Ashton asked, "Do you guys hate her or think she is ugly?" He said to me, "Caroline, they don't hate you. Why are you doing this to yourself?"

I sighed, "Well most of my life I have been told that I was ugly and that I was hated. It's all I know."

Ashton hugged me and whispered in my ear, "Well you are beautiful, I am gonna teach you different. I don't care how long it takes, I will teach you different." We sat there for a while as I sobbed softly into his chest.
